Let’s talk about natural immune function! Are you running at peak performance ensuring that you’re bolstering your innate capacity to keep you whole and hale over the coming Winter months? Would you like a few tips?
Our thyroid needs a good storehouse of iodine on board. This organ filters the blood every 20 minutes and acts like a video game shooting at errant bacteria. As part of your immunity, it is searching out unwanted microbes and annihilating them with spurts of iodine. If it’s deplete, those gnarly bad bacteria go unchecked.
This is why a diet rich in kelp and sometimes even an iodine supplement is recommended. Consider that exposure to radiation, cell phones and computers deplete your iodine stores. Not only is iodine supplementation becoming more critical in the realm of natural fertility, but also for your general health and longevity.
Whether you’re seeking tips for remaining healthy all Winter long, or you’re after sources of iodine, we’ve got your back. We wrote a book that speaks to whole foods and supplements that we’ve used ourselves for our family for over 20 years. You can find it here. Plus, if you’re looking for more thyroid care, the specific article here will boost your immune function as well. Here’s to your good health!
