One of the best ways to remove this overdose of fluoride from the cells is through the supplementation of iodine. A simple way to do this is by eating iodine rich food, particularly sea vegetables.
Dulse flakes can be sprinkled on your food, as you would table salt. Kombu can be added to soups, as it is similar in taste to a rich tasting MSG but extremely healthy. Wakame can be made into a delicious seaweed salad.
These sea vegetables are easily found in most health food stores. Considering how nutritious they are, it is worth taking the time to experiment with them.
By adding sea vegetables to your diet, you will be increasing your sources of minerals, iron, vitamin C, B vitamins, carotenoids (pre-vitamin A), and enzymes. Sea vegetables also have a unique compound called fucoidans, which are basically a sulfated polysaccharide. This will provide ant-viral capabilities, improved cardiac function and reduced inflammation.
If eaten on a regular basis, a new level of health and vitality in your life is assured. These veggies are also high in chlorophyll content and will have a wonderful effect on helping you to detoxify and feel strong.
For those who feel adventurous, I am disclosing my recipe for seaweed salad. If you are still somewhat intimidated by the thought of eating this unusual food, try halving the recipe below. Give it a taste. You may be pleasantly surprised by its sesame seed flavor, and it may permanently change your perception of sea vegetables forever.
So here it is.
Dr. Brand’s Seaweed Salad
1 oz. cut up wakame (most bags are 2 oz.)
1 TBSP toasted sesame oil
1 TBSP umeboshi vinegar (pickled plum juice)
3 TBSP apple cider vinegar
Optional: ground ginger, sesame seeds, cucumber strips or carrot shavings
1. Cut the dried wakame into 1 inch pieces with a sharp kitchen scissor. Place in a large bowl and soak in COLD water for about 20 minutes. Then let cold water run through it for a few minutes to remove any sediment. Pat it dry with a clean paper towel or cloth towel.
2. Place the clean dry seaweed in a bowl. Add the 3 other ingredients. Toss and serve.
Note: You can add more toasted sesame oil if you feel that it has a somewhat fishy flavor. You can add more umeboshi vinegar for a saltier taste.
Add one or more of the Optional ingredients to give your salad a unique twist of flavor or color.
