Seaweed Bath

Iodine Deficiency and Dry skin

Seaweed bath can provide with an excellent addition of Iodine to the body through the skin. Read below the importance of iodine to our health. 20% of all iodine in the human body is stored in the skin, specifically in the sweat glands. Lack of iodine in the sweat glands manifests as dry skin with a decreased ability to sweat.R esearch work has shown that iodine deficiency in the thyroid presents as a thyroid goiter (enlargement of the thyroid). In those areas of the world where iodine deficiency is very high, such as in Switzerland and in certain areas of Asia and Africa, there are also higher incidents of thyroid cancer. Iodine is also concentrated by breast tissue, and a lack of iodine in the breasts manifests as fibrocystic breast disease (painful breasts with nodules and cysts and often more symptomatic prior to menstrual periods).

93% of American women have fibrocystic breast disease and the longer this disease exists, the higher the potential risk for development of breast cancer. Iodine is concentrated in the lacrymal glands of the eye, and a lack of iodine can cause dry eyes. Iodine can also be concentrated in the parotid and submandibular glands of the mouth, and iodine deficiency here can result in dry mouth. Iodine can be concentrated in the ovaries, and Russian studies done some years ago showed a relationship between iodine deficiency and the presence of cysts in the ovaries. The greater the iodine deficiency, the more ovarian cysts a woman produces. In its extreme form, this condition is known as polycystic ovarian disease.”

Brown Seaweed helps in both the area, simply because it is rich in iodine which is a very critical mineral for thyroid glad and rich in Vitamin K which is crucial for Adrenal function. So during the Seaweed bath, skin toxins are eliminated and the key adrenal and thyroid hormones are restored to boost your metabolism.  Isn’t a miracle that a natural product can address both adrenal and thyroid issues that so widely relevant today?
