An imbalance of iron in our blood causes our body to have unpleasant symptoms.
Not enough iron can cause exhaustion, breathlessness and weak or tired arms, palpitations and much more. Read on for more detail:
Iodine has great healing benefits for the human body.
Iodine is found in fish and seaweeds from the ocean.
A couple of centuries ago the poorest of the poor people in England, Scotland and Ireland who lived near the sea relied on fish from the ocean for much of their food. People who were at starvation point ate seaweed that was washed up on the shore. Somehow these people survived on this food, with its nutrition from the sea.
"during Ireland's disastrous potato famine of 1847-48, seaweed was used commonly as food, which led to negative associations of seaweed with poverty and famine. "
The lack of Iodine is vast in our Western society. There are processes in the body that make use of certain elements. Once, iodine was the main element. These days it has been replaced by bromine, chlorine and fluoride. This means that we now have far less iodine in our body.
Iodine is essential for thethyroid gland.
The thyroid gland is in charge of the metabolism.
'Metabolism describes the chemical reactions that occur in the body which are vital for keeping us alive.'
Iodine is also needed for the health of the breasts, ovaries and testicles.
Iodine is to be respected as it can affect the body greatly whether there is too much of it or too little.
People in Japan eat lots of fish and seaweed. They have much less cancer of the breast than women in the US. They also live to great ages in good health.

Recovering from Major Illness
Natural supplements are a great way to improve our health especially if we are or have been very unwell. The medical profession have difficulty in diagnosing some illnesses. Just because doctors can't find what is wrong with you or put a name to it does not mean that you are not ill. There are many other health professionals who have expertise in other health modalities.
This why my favourite modality is Homeopathy. I call this the 'Designer Medicine'. The remedies are prescribed for you according to your symptoms, not the generalized symptoms of an illness. You may have more than one illness. There are over two thousand remedies.
My favourite supplement is N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC). This supplies the ingredients for our body to make glutathione, the major antioxidant in our body. Glutathione cannot be absorbed in our body if taken as a supplement therefore we need to give our body the basic ingredients to make it. NAC is very good for Depression or Bi Polar. Research studies have been done on this in Australia with positive results. Glutathione is found especially in the heart and the brain as well as all over the body.
Vitamin C is another important antioxidant. We have all heard of the importance of this for many years. We cannot make this vital vitamin in our body so must absorb it in our food or as a supplement. Most people will not get enough of this in their diet so supplementation in important. Vitamin C is found in the fluid in our eyes so to protect these important organs take some Vitamin C every day.
Minerals are the backbone of our body. We all know about Calcium and we know the names of many other minerals we need to keep us healthy. There is chloride, phosphorus, potassium and sodium. We also need iron and many trace elements. Trace elements are needed in very tiny quantities in our body, but we still need them.
What is the best way to get our minerals? By eating vegetables. The minerals have been absorbed by the roots of the vegetables and these are easily absorbed by our body.
Magnesium is my favourite mineral. It is wonderful to ease spasms. Spasms can manifest as cramps in the legs, period cramps, cramps in the gut in Irritable Bowel Syndrome or other bowel illnesses where the bowel goes into spasms. Magnesium also eases sneezing - a spasm, and coughing and asthma. It can help ease a migraine too. It also helps build our bones.
There are different ways to take magnesium.
Next time I will talk about other supplements that may help with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. ME, CFIDS, Fibromyalgia, Adrenal Fatigue the Immune system and Thyroid problems.
