30 Bananas a Day!

I have hypothyroidism, and when I started eating kelp/dulse/nori/etc. seaweeds a few days ago, I've had SO MUCH MORE energy, it is ridiculous! Would it be more beneficial to eat seaweed as a whole food (and get my iodine up thus) or take supplements instead? If supplements, what kind do you recommend or that have worked for you?

I realize the seaweed may be contaminated, but it's STILL a whole food. If I'm eating more healthy in general (811lfrv after all!!), I feel as though the toxins, incuding mercury, can be more easily eliminated. I also don't want to lose the benefits of eating whole foods, naturally! :D Suggestions?

That's exactly what I was thinking--plus, if my body seems to be screaming out for greens and seaweeds right now, both of which I NEVER eat usually, I think I'll listen to it. :D My energy is through the roof, even higher than just on plain 811lfrv, yeah! xP Yay!! ;P
Chlorella works for chelation. You can buy it raw.
Ah, thanks! :) This should be a great idea.
Iodine works the best for chelation.

Mercury lodges primarily in your brain, thyroid (causing hypothyroidism), and kidneys, but also everywhere else; it takes a couple of years to completely eliminate it. Drinking juice, eating vegetables alone -will not- achieve the results.

great info SW!
I understand that most seaweed now has lots of heavy metals, bromide, and pollutants in them - for this reason I avoid them and just supplement with iodine/Lugol's solution. 8 drops per day detoxes anyone. It's been around almost forever and is the tried and true method to get your iodine, the soil has been depleted!...
I had *many* mercury -'amalgam'- fillings drilled out of my head about 2 years ago....I knew in my soul i had mercury poisoning - i didn't really bother to get myself tested; I just ordered the Lugol's solution off the internet and began detoxing. Have never had a skin rash or other problem mentioned by Dr. Brownstein since that time. I know it's worked for me...I think you should tell your people about it. It certainly won't hurt the body to use it. I got a five year supply for next to nothing...
Hey SW, I have been eating the seaweed instead, but stopped when a new batch suddenly started giving me thick red inflammed and volcano-like rashes all over my arms. Every time I stop they fade, but if I keep going, they increase in size. Is this caused by the iodine itself in the seaweed or by something else?
Ni, it's caused by the toxins and heavy metals that the seaweed absorbs as it grows - this is why I get my iodine supplement with Lugol's solution. I found it cheap here: http://www.jcrowsmarketplace.com/lugolssolutionofiodine.aspx

8 drops per day - no worries!
Yes, I noticed big changes - no more debilitating, whole-body skin rashes; no more losing my voice while speaking for 5 - 7 minutes, or feeling my throat was constricted; internal body temperature was regulated, and increased - no more cold hands!; and I had coarse hair...it's grown in much finer and silkier; brain fog lifted -- more energy. There's a whole page of ailments iodine will cure which are caused by hypothyroidism - I listed it elsewhere on this site....

If someone bought a bottle of 16 oz. it should last about 5 years.
Thank you for the information SW. I have a question, which is perhaps answered in the video you posted, but it's too much to go through right now, so: what are the reasons to prefer Lugol's solution to other iodine supplements? (I like to buy from www.lef.org, and as I am soon going to stock up on vitamin D3 from them, I thought I might as well take one of those they that comes with iodine: http://www.lef.org/Vitamins-Supplements/Item01372/Vitamin-D3-with-S... - any thoughts on it?)
Hi Nicolas,

Lugol's solution is made of a combination of iodine and iodide, in the correct amounts determined long ago. Dr. Brownstein explains both these ingredients are necessary because different body tissues utilize one in preference to the other so the combination is required.

The minimum threshold of ingestion must be reached before the body will begin to replace poisonous halides with the iodine it hungers for. When replacement is made, the body begins healing.
What iodine is not used is excreted from the body, just like potassium in bananas...
