Seaweed Contains Iodine

Fucus contain mucilage, algin, mannitol, beta-carotene, zeaxanthin, iodine, bromine, potassium, volatile oils, and additional trace minerals.

Alternative practitioners use seaweed, including specifically homeopathic bladder wrack , as a source of iodine, an essential nutrient for the thyroid gland. The thyroid acts as the metabolic center and explains how it can be used for under active thyroid glands in hypothyroidism and goitre.

Rates of estrogen-dependent cancers are among the highest in Western countries and lower in the East. These variations may be attributable to differences in dietary exposures such as higher seaweed consumption am ong Asian populations. The edible brown kelp, Fucus vesiculosus (bladderwrack), as well as other brown kelp species, lower plasma cholesterol levels.

Since cholesterol is a precursor to sex hormone biosynthesis, kelp consumption may alter circulating sex hormone levels and menstrual cycling patterns. In particular, dietary kelp may be beneficial to women with or at high risk for estrogen-dependent diseases. To test this, bladderwrack was administered to three pre-menopausal women with abnormal menstrual cycling patterns and/or menstrual-related disease histories.

Bladder wrack has been shown to help women with abnormal menstrual cycling patterns and menstrual-related disease histories. Doses of 700 to 1400 mg/day were found to increase the menstrual cycle lengths, decrease the days of menstruation per cycle, and decrease the serum levels of 17B-estradiol.

Mike Adams preaches to the choir. Folks reading articles in Natural News are interested in improving lifestyle, learning the latest tricks and hints for lifestyle changes, eating more nutritionally, de-stressing, and losing weight. We all know that obesity is at all time epidemic proportions. So, he comes along and tells us that the two mega-monopolies, McDonald's and Weight Watchers, partner together to advertise their products as healthy meals. Unfortunately, we learn that processed and denatured foods cannot be considered nutritionally beneficial.

Appealing To Our Taste Buds. People who love salty, fatty and sweet products visit these locations for supposedly quick, easy family meals. For those people who don't like to cook. Maybe we can learn something from their habits.

Are You Well Fed Or Starving? The New York Times runs an article about the Obesity-Hunger factors. Just because you are fat, this does not mean you are well-fed. Your body could be starving for the correct nutrients and in the correct balance, which put your entire body off-balance. People who are eating the wrong kinds of foods become overweight. It could happen to anyone.

Seeing Pink | Mike Adams, News Ranger, has also run an article of this very topic and castigates Susan G. Komen for the Cure for inappropriate dietary recommendations.

Some 42% of those aged 18-24 said they were too fat, while 80% of those aged over 55 confessed they needed to lose weight.

Let's look at food desires and body types as possible indications of homeopathic remedies that may assist the body heal these imbalances.

Emotional Triggers & Issues Are Involved in the Obesity Epidemic

Whether it is insecurity, a need for love and caring, a feeling of poverty, an inability to accomplish goals, and the other stresses of life we all deal with, some people exhibit these emotional problems in the way they carry their weight around.

Some people become anorexic and can't keep the weight on, while others keep putting on the pounds. Homeopathy offers treatments for various aspects of obesity.

Homeopathic medicines may help a person lose weight by balancing out the emotional issues surrounding the problem. When the person feels they have better coping mechanisms, more control in their choices, and self control the weight will come off on its own. Of course, they must take the steps to improve lifestyle and select healthy choices.

With the homeopathic stimulus a person can lose weight by improving digestion, elimination, and metabolism. As you know, a homeopath takes an in-depth life history and clinical consultation to learn everything about a person in search of the matching energy remedy. Constitutional treatment means finding a holistic approach that covers likes, dislikes, physical weakness and strengths, taking into consideration play, work, goals, and relationship issues.


Antimonium crudum | Irritability especially when someone warns you not to overeat because you don't like being told what to do; nor do you like people staring at you! This remedy helps with tendency to belching, gas and diarrhea, and shows up poor digestion with a coated tongue. Like sulphur, this type has acne and pimples. They crave more of the sour and vinegary foods.

Argentum nitricum | For those addicted to sweets and chocolate. A key thing to look for is fear of heights and performance anxiety, even going into crowded rooms or narrow spaces. Very anxious types who breakdown easily from any kind of stress. This one is specific for performers of all kinds, especially singers. If you see someone reaching for that chocolate bar whenever they need comforting from too much anxiety and stress think about arg nit.

Calcarea carbonica | These folks have very very slow metabolisms, to the point of not needing to go to the bathroom that often. They have trouble controlling their appetite, maybe because they are not getting the I'm Full signal. They especially love eggs and hot foods. A worry wort with flabby, soft muscles and tendency to sweat, especially on the head at night could use calc carb. Some physical symptoms that could lead you to this remedy are the sticky glue and runny nose. When they are on a diet, they can feel lightheaded and dizzy. These pudgy kids usually have fair skin and blonde hair, and may even like to eat chalk.

Coffea cruda | As the name of the remedy suggests, these types are excitable, restless and nervous as when you drink too much coffee. Eating helps your calm down, especially when you can't sleep from too much excitement. In terms of heat, when everyone around you thinks it's a good temperature they may find themselves warm, but going outside is even worse - which is the opposite of those needing pulsatilla.

Capsicum | These overweight types are often home-sick and act lazy. Their appearance has a red face with burnings in the stomach. Yes, this is the hot pepper plant, so these folks may feel quite hot, irritable with indigestion and even depressive thoughts because they are home-sick. Inflammation is often present, including ear troubles like tinnitus and vertigo, burning hemorrhoids. You know the type who drinks and smokes, has bad odors and the typical burning like herpes outbreaks.

Ferrum phos | This is often take as a cell salt to boost the immune system from fevers. For overweight people who are oversensitive, cranky while dieting and flush easily this may be a good selection. If you are trying to lose weight in connection with hormonal changes, such as menopause, this is a good remedy to try first.

Graphites | This remedy that originates from carbon is thought of most often for weepy, oozing sticky skin wounds and abrasions. But, it is also great for perimenopausal woman who can't seem to lose weight. In appearance, either men or women have pale skin and are very sensitive to cold, with cold feet. Regarding digestion they have constipation and love to snack in-between meals.

Ignatia | Known as the number one remedy for grief and loss, the person may appear a bit hysterical, out of control, anxious and fearful at times. With this loss, it helps to eat and even the act of swallowing the food feels good. You know how easy it is to put on weight when you are in a funk, grieving, and not able to get out and exercise. If you notice a lot of sighing this could be a clue (along with calc phos).

Kali carbonicum | Best known for women who endure back labor, this remedy also helps with moving sinus discharge out of the system, and like graphites they can also have cold feet. This is for that person who easily puts on weight and it's so hard to take off.

Lycopodium | Another type that adores sweets [like sulphur and arg nit types]. People who have fears and anxieties about doing a good job, performing in public, and want to be in control at home, while subservient at work may get help from this remedy. They may have most of the weight on the lower body and often have grey hair early in life.

Natrum sulphur | Another remedy with a sulphur component is known for people who deal with depression, and what obese person is not suffering from this problem? They may have had a head concussion from a sports injury or accident. They tend to be very responsible individuals, with a strong sense of duty. Music can make them emotional, sad and more depressed. Physically, they have thick yellow discharges.They do not like fish foods or damp weather or homes.

Nux vomica | This remedy type loves drinking alcoholic beverages as a connoisseur, but also gets hangovers because like antimonium crudum they over-indulge in foods and drinks. And, like Natrum sulph, it is a liver booster. Temperamentally, they are passionate people that can go overboard with jealousy and abusive behavior and language to their loved ones, which is a bit like the lycopodium character. Whenever the liver is affected, we will see angry emotions. In addition to overweight, the person may have violent sneezing attacks with hayfever. They want to be able to do so much, but just can't, which includes ability to pass stool easily, which leads to constipation. These types can have lots of cramps and spasms, too.

Staphysagria | Do you know the type that eats their own words? They just stuff down their anger and put up with a lot. These very sweet natured people can just keep the weight on as a representation of their hurt, pain and anger that is totally repressed within their bodies. Its possible these people have endured abuse as some time in their life.

Sulphur | For those people who not only have excess weight, but also itchy, dirty skin and crave those sweets. This main polycrest (covers many symptoms) can talk up a storm. They just go on and on about any subject, but especially themselves. Also great for burnings in any mucus lining in eyes, nose, ears, throat, esophagus and obviously heartburn. Redness can be seen even on the skin and ears. You guessed it, these folks also like to drink alcohol, which can easily put on the beer belly.

Sulphuricum Acidum | You know that person who has had too much to eat, but keeps on eating? These folks rush through everything, including the meal. The homeopathic acids are also good for depression; and sulphuric acid for deep pain and physical injury, like after a surgery. Like sulphur they do love sweets.

Constitutionally, there are remedies that help with basic constitutional types that often have a tendency to be overweight. An experienced homeopath can help you discover the matching remedy in a holistic manner by understanding your emotional, mental and physical make-up.

Homeopathic remedies are gentle, safe and effective with no side effects. It is like surgery without the hospital bills and targets the whole individual, not just the stomach. You do not have to worry about over-dosing on drugs, getting addicted to these medications as in the many medical traumas associated with diet aids and supplements.

Homeopathic Testimonial

Do Not Confuse Herbal Combinations with Homeopathy

Very often you will hear 'herbal' and 'homeopathy' in the same sentence lumped together. They are not the same thing.

Herbs and tinctures have the substance of plants within their capsules or liquids. They have active chemical substances that can build up in the body, tissues, organs and can effect the functioning of them. It is recommended not to be taking these substances continually over time without a doctor's instructions, naturopath or herbalist who knows the proper quantity and combination with other substances.

Homeopathy is diluted and succussed (potentized) to transfer the healing properties to the liquid dilution such as water or alcohol. This energy medicine is dropped and dried on sugar pellets or given in liquid form.

Mother tinctures may be utilized as nutritional supports to your healing journey.

The Former Fat Guy has a blog. He mentions homeopathy in his promotions. I would like it if he would distinguish between herbs and homeopathy in order to educate people of their differences. The basic premise is correct ~ that the body can heal itself. He speaks highly of his naturopaths, Kristine and Michael Earl. You can take a listen at his audio files and see for yourself. I don't really know the whole story. I like when he says, " the best source of trusted information is your own bodies signals to yourself. "

      Dear Chhabra. Unlike drug medications, homeopathic remedies are not given based upon an individual's weight. If your needed remedy is lycopodium, which was selected properly based upon personality, disposition, clinical symptoms, responsiveness to environmental influences and relationships, then your homeopathic physician would determine the 'potency' appropriate for you. Typically, a person who has mostly physical symptoms would be taking what is considered a low potency, such as 6X, 6C, 30C, while a person with more emotional needs a bit higher potency usually 200C. The homeopath will instruct you how often to take this remedy and in what form.

      Dear Angus. Very good points. If there is a metabolic and metabolism dysfunction, or if someone is taking steroids or a number of medical reasons, a person will have a difficult time losing weight. In the same way, people can have a hard time putting on weight and keeping it on.

      Food cravings are a symptom and helpful indication for homeopaths to select a proper matching remedy. It is 'part of the whole' syndrome which individuals express their entire being, needs, desires and fulfillment.

      Dear Nancy. It has been so kind of you to visit, read and post comments this week. Your tips about reducing spicy, salty, and sweet foods enable us to reset our tastebuds and realize how wonderful natural flavors can be, and give the kidneys a rest from processing all those extras.

      I, personally, do not adhere to the drink 6-10 ounce glasses of water per day. I believe that each of us individually have certain fluid needs and if we listen to our body we can detect how much or little that is for each person. In fact, you can over-tax your kidneys by too much water if that is not how your body processes fluids.

      Adjusting to sunset and sunrise sounds like a rule I put on my New Year's resolutions every year. With technology and the invention of electricity and lightbulbs, that has gone out the window.

      Obviously, junk food is a no-no. They all include #1 on your list.

      Wonderful article. Debby.

      Some useful tips for weight loss

      1. Stop eating spicy foods. Reduce your salt as well as sugar intake.

      2. Drink at least 10 glasses of water daily

      3. Enjoy aerobic exercise-walking, brisk walk, jogging, cycling or swimming in the morning before sunrise. For this you have to sleep early.

      4. Stop eating junk food such as cold drinks, burgers, sandwich, etc

      Dear Joy - First, congratulations on the little one! One of the first things a homeopath does is look at lifestyle, habits and any "obstacle to cure." You are absolutely correct that cravings and eating all the wrong foods, smoking, drinking, etc. will not help you to lose weight.

      Since the article was specifically about homeopathic remedies, I highlighted them. Thank you for mentioning the success you experienced by slowly weaning yourself off of highly processed, salted and sweetened foods by switching over to more nutritional raw foods. Best wishes in the future. Debby

      I used somewhat gourmet raw foods to mock all three food groups I used to crave. I knew it wasn't a long term answer, because really, I was just moving from processed salts, sweets and fats to natural, raw food versions. But you know what? Once I got off all that processed JUNK, my body changed. My cravings were gone. A little bit of the "natural" raw food versions I made at home totally satiated me. No more overdoing it. My moods stabilized and I lost weight, but that didn't last long because I got pregnant! Which was a happy surprise since my husband and I tried for years with no success. I think all the methods you shared here would work for specific cravings. But how many of us would benefit from being OFF the crazy processed foods to find out what's left of our cravings after all the hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, chemicals, and hydrogenated non-sense is gone.

      No more rambling. Thanks for the information and for being a bold leader in the health community. You are appreciated!

      Well said, Adorababy (cute photo) ~ Classical Homeopathy takes into account the totality of the individual and the homeopath discerns the 'central disturbance' or disorder of the vital force that animates the living being. Sometimes we can find the etiology from a point in history like a fright, injury, argument, disease onset, etc.

    • adorababy profile image

      adorababy 7 years ago from Syracuse, NY

      Homeopathy, classically applied, is not about remedies for any particular ailment, it's about treating the central disturbance of the patient, not the outward manifestation of a disease. These trials will never validate homeopathy.

      Hi Sam ~ What you are learning is that many of the remedies have overlapping symptoms. That is why it is best to find an expert homeopath to hear out your life story and current situation. It is important to note the major symptoms that effect your life and what is of most concern, plus clinical issues, life issues, including accidents and surgeries. Is it possible something in the childhood set off a pattern that has carried throughout the lifetime? Was their an illness from which you never fully recovered? There are so many effects to the spirit and the body and to the family that could effect the unborn child or during delivery. Is this a missing nutrient, an allergy, or a grief? There could be a few layers to uncover during this process, especially if someone has been taking numerous medications or stimulants.

      Hi Debby,

      Thanks for such a great article.

      I too fit into a number of types.

      Antimonium crudum - esp the sour vinegary foods

      Calcarea carbonica - esp the sweaty head at night

      Capsicum - this is probably the type I most fit

      Nux vomica - esp the cramps and spasms

      How should I approach this? Also what dosage should be taken? I am a 6ft 6, 16st man.

      Hi Debby. Rob Cooper here. I'm quite clear about the chinese approach using herbs and the homeopathic approach that does not use herbs. Not mixing anything up at all. Not sure where you got the idea that I might be confused on the subject. I rarely ever talk about homeopathy. I understand it, would recommend it to anyone for anything, but dont talk about it.

      I have a writer who is a homeopath, who used to write about it for one of my websites. That's about it.

      Thanks for stopping by with your recommendation:) I appreciate that.

      Actually, though I don't care for salty food. I never have trouble not eating salty stuff.

      Great hub Debby! I'm not that familiar with homeopathy, I'm more of an herb girl; however, I feel I learned more about homeopathy here on your hub. Congrats on your win and thanks for sharing! :)

      Hi Lizzie ~ need complete work up on all fronts. But, we get many clues from the fact that you like salty food and cheese and sweets. I could give a guess LOL

      I'm not sure which one I'd pick. I think I'd fit in a few of the categories.

      When I'm really hungry I crave cheese! Is that weird? I also really like sweets and can always pass up chips or salty snacks.
