Iodine is called the "metabolizer."
It is one of the most vital of the biochemical elements and has one of the highest
vibratory frequency rates of all the elements. It mainly affects the thyroid,
which not only controls many important functions in the body, but also keeps
us in a quickened state of health. Iodine restores heat and assists calcium
in the repair and building of tissue in the body. Iodine is stored mostly in
the thyroid, and in smaller amounts in the muscles, skin, and bones.
The thyroid gland secretes
iodine. Hormones produced by the thyroid regulate and control the metabolism
of the body, increasing the assimilation of salts. They also control digestion,
heart rate, body temperature, nervous system, reproductive system and body weight.
Iodine protects the brain by destroying harmful toxins and helps neutralize
toxins in the rest of the body. Iodine aids the assimilation of calcium and
silicon. Skin problems such as dry or scaly skin are indicative of an iodine
deficiency. A regular elevated intake of iodine would be required to produce
iodine toxicity. Allergic reactions to iodine occur occasionally, manifesting
as skin rashes or acne.
