Iodine is important to our bodies, and we have an excellent source right here at our clinic. The Thyroid gland needs iodine to produce the thyroid hormones, which support a healthy metabolism. The body does not make iodine, so it is must be an essential part of your diet or taken via supplements. Vegetarians, especially vegans, are particularly at risk for thyroid deficiency. Too much iodine can also cause problems, and as with most things regarding our health, balance is the key.
We hear a lot about nitric oxide these days, especially on all those commercials about beets. A recent article, “Is Nitric Oxide a Cancer-Healing Powerhouse?” by Dr. Veronique Desaulniers is instructive, so we summarize it here for our readers.

Human clinical research from respected, peer-reviewed journals reveals that simple dietary changes–like eating sesame paste (tahini) daily–can have huge impacts on risk factors for common deadly diseases. Research studies have shown that sesame seeds are a SUPERFOOD! Food can be curative and may help us finally to put the “war against heart disease” (like the failed “war on cancer”) to rest. Think about it: drugs don’t “cure” disease any more than bullets cure war.
