Thalassotherapy - Natures Healing Gift

Thalassotherapy, which is ocean therapy has been utilized by cultures for over 5000. If you use raw seaweed that is certified organic and food grade you can't go wrong. Iodine, found in brown kelps, was classified as the first essential mineral required for life, as it is utilized in every cell and stored in our bodies for health. We know that Japan has the lowest rate of breast cancer in the world, this is because the population there eats large amounts of seaweed, especially Kombu or Alaria and the breast's are a large storage house for iodine. In fact, Fibrocystic Breast Disease (FBD), painful breasts during or after menstruation is caused by a lack of iodine in breast. Seaweed and Iodine have been shown to induce apoptosis (natural cell death) to cancer cell in over 750 scientific studies done in the US, Canada, Asia & Europe over the last 40 years. So you're able to absorb the vitamins & minerals transdermally that are naturally chelated (readily absorbed) with concentrations of 20-50 times that of land growing vegetables or plants. 20X more iron in brown kelp than in organic spinach, all bio-available and ready to use.

Chlorine, Fluorine and Bromine(used as a water disinfectant) and their isotopes compete for storage in the body with healing iodine and flush out the iodine that is stored in our brain, thyroid gland, women's breasts & ovaries as well as the prostate gland in men, for our immune strength. When the iodine is depleted either from halogen replacement or during pregnancy and is not replaced, disease creeps into the body and especially auto-immune disorders such as arthritis, eczema, psoriasis, fibromyalgia thyroidism, cancer & more. This causes havoc with the endocrine system which supports our metabolism & hormone production. Iodine, is the first essential mineral classified as essential for life and was used in medical practice from the early 1800's through the 1950's to treat thyroidism (both hyper & hypo) as well as staff infections & asthma. In fact Doctors learned a little rhyme in medical school ' If ye don't know what, when or why, prescribe then K and I. Which is potassium iodide. You can visit www.drbrownstein.com for more information. Dr. Brownstein has written a great book called 'Iodine, why you need it, why you can't live without it.' As well, a thalassotherapy soak is a wonderful way to enjoy your bath while absorbing the healing nutrients of the ocean found in seaweed in high concentrations. I have friends who have reversed arthritis, eczema, psoriasis and even anemia within 3 months of regular seaweed baths.
