Iodine deficiency is more widespread than you might think.
Not only is iodine a rare element in the earth’s crust, it is tough to obtain adequate iodine in the diet. To make matters worse, there are numerous chemicals that displace iodine in the body, including mercury, fluorides, chlorine and bromides. This kicks what little iodine we are getting in our diets out of the body.
Because iodine is an essential element for thyroid function, it’s little wonder that thyroid disorders are so widespread. And, while many people know that iodine is important for the thyroid, most people don’t know it is also important for the health of the breasts, reproductive organs in men and women, the nerves, skin and eyes. In fact, every cell in the body needs iodine to function properly.
Let Kimberly Balas, ND and Steven Horne, AHG share with you why iodine is so important to our health, and why millions of Americans simply aren’t getting enough. Learn the link between iodine deficiency and numerous diseases including thyroid disorders, breast and prostate cancer, fibromyalgia, fatigue and depression and how to get more iodine into your diet.
