What you need to know about the Thyroid and Nuclear Fallout

For those of you who know me,   I am not one to create drama. However- in this case, situations in the world are changing and this is an unusual circumstance  that many of us here may be affected by.  We don’t have control over the weather conditions from the other side of the world, or their ravages that are impacting many… but we do have control over how we take care of ourselves.

In this instance, I feel a little education will go a long way to give you a choice and options should you choose to be proactive to nourish and protector body as best as possible.

With the ongoing news, and increasing concerns about more nuclear explosions in Japan due to the recent tsunami- for those who want to take some protective measures to strengthen your body-and more importantly, do what you can to protect your thyroid, here’s a bit more information for you.

Seems that the first part of our body to be affected by nuclear fallout is the thyroid gland.

Depending upon your current state of health, you may need to strengthen your thyroid, or in some cases activate it.  Here are two products from Nature’s Sunshine can help you with that:

Thyroid Support

Thyroid Activator

The bigger concern, though is how to protect the thyroid from being ‘filled up’ with nuclear waste. The thyroid needs iodine. Iodine is found in abundance in seaweed, kelp, cod, along with a handful of other fishes.

How to protect your thyroid from the possible nuclear fallout coming our way

Nature’s Sunshine has available high-quality kelp, fish oils, and a product called Algin.

Algin is made from a brown seaweed. It is mucilaginous and bulking. That means it gets slippery inside of you, and it has a high fiber content so it bulks up inside your belly. The good part about this is that it coats the inside of your digestive system, and the bulk fiber helps to have more frequent healthy bowel movements.

Algae and other seaweed is exceptionally nutritious. It contains carbohydrates, oils, proteins, vitamins, trace elements, minerals and fibers in balanced proportions.

It is especially well known for it’s high levels of minerals (salts) and trace elements (metals), which are highly beneficial to human beings.

Algin is often used in food and pharmaceutical preparations. Algin offers especially good protection from many kinds of modern day pollutants, carcinogens, and toxins.

Algin prevents living tissue from absorbing radioactive materials. Algin also encourages the action of dietary fiber, by supplying nutrients, and by normalizing bowel functions.

Seaweed has been used as food by both humans and animals for thousands of years. Today, it is eaten in many Asian countries as a vegetable but when the knowledge of it’s high food value spreads to the western world many people have begun eating algae in tablet form.

Alginates have been widely used as food additives and in the cosmetic industry.

My heart and intention with this post is to educate you- to help remove fears or concerns you may have.  God always provides an answer if we look, listen and take action.

May you be blessed in your day & steadfast in your walk.

Aglin RECOMMENDED DOSAGE:

Take two capsules three times daily between meals. Drink two glasses of juice with each serving. Any type of 100% juice will do. Juice should be taken with algin as it causes the algin to gel in the body and the acidity of juice helps breakdown the algin for assimilation. Remember, TWO glasses of juice with each dose.

Ethics in leadership- what is your walk?

Ethics.  Simple word. Much involved in it. The last two weeks have had me in a leadership role overseeing actions, communication and ethical practices for people I have responsibility for.

One piece of wisdom and insight for all leaders to remember: we, when given a role of leadership, we serve others best when we remember first and foremost that it is us who must guide ourselves with each step, thought and action in order to help raise up others in every situation.

What we do in every situation- whether you wear the role of ‘leader’ or follower’ is felt and observed by others. They may not comment. They may not question. They DO observe and they do change their actions and thinking towards you.  Manage your own efforts and actions first, live ethically and morally. When you do, you will be able to guide others for betterment as they see you are consistent through and through.

One of my favorite quotes on Leadership ” A leader is one who may make a decision that does not get the popular vote. A true leader will stand firm on that decision because they know it’s the right thing to do.”

Do you walk with the level of ethics and integrity that you could? Do you walk with the level of ethics and integrity that you should?

Remember your first day of your job? Your shoes were shined and your part was razor-straight—you had every intention to set the world on fire. But at some point you discovered you were working with Dweebs…a.k.a. humans with ISSUES. Whiners, complainers, gossips and excuse-crafters were suddenly everywhere. Everyone was shooting wildly for mediocrity—and hitting the bull’s-eye.

And then it happened to you. You resigned to working in what looks like an adult day care and accepting a mediocre vision of what’s possible for you and your organization.

Or you maybe you’re a leader who has tried everything you know, but the business still isn’t growing, profits are harder and harder to come by…and it just isn’t much fun anymore. In fact, you are losing your passion to be extraordinary.

Whether you’re on the front line, or you run the place, you’ll discover how to:

  • Replace a “Why we can’t” with a “Why we CAN” attitude
  • Bust the “baditudes” and stop the energy vampires from sucking your energy
  • Replace dysfunctional behaviors with a fire in the belly to get massive results
