It was over a year ago that we featured a book by Dr. David Brownstein called Iodine: Why You Need It, Why You Can’t Live Without It. We uncovered several clues about a possible connection between cellulite and inadequate iodine intake, but we were never able to draw firm conclusions about the connection.
Now that we are investigating GUAM Beauty Mud, an algae-based body wrap made from nutrient-dense seaweed harvested from the coast of France, I wanted to revisit the evidence we uncovered earlier about cellulite and iodine deficiency.
Seaweed is a naturally rich source of iodine. Last year we focused on iodine foods or supplements taken internally. But we know the body absorbs iodine through the skin (see 3 Tests for Iodine Deficiency You Can Take from Home). GUAM is basically a way to apply iodine externally. Could this beauty mud be the Italian way of applying iodine topically?
Also, fluoride and iodine have a similar chemical makeup and iodine is known to displace fluoride from the body. Could GUAM be an effective way to “unlock” fluoride stored under the skin? These are some of the questions I wonder as I’m wearing my plastic pants in the evening, waiting for GUAM to do its thing.
