In this post by Dr Brownstein, a gifted doc I have studied with, you will learn more about the dangers of Bromine and how its presence in so many areas of our lives is impacting our thyroids. Taking iodine rich foods such as Enerfood, supplements such as thyrobust and consuming good mineral rich salt can help greatly. Check out this article below!
Bromine Toxicity Passed from One Generation to the Next
An interesting article reported that fish exposed to low levels of common flame retardants pass the chemicals along to their progeny. Scientists found that while the parents’ health effects were minimal, the exposures reduced hatch rates and altered the thyroid hormonal system in the next generation.
The effects were worse if the offspring were exposed to the same low chemical levels as their parents. What were the chemicals? Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE’s) were the chemicals studied. PBDE’s are used widely in our environment as a flame retardant. They are found in many consumer products such as clothing, furniture, mattresses, curtains, foam, and electronics. PBDE’s are found in large amounts in automobile seats and many children’s products. (Environmental Science and Technology. 2011. http://dx.doi.org/10.1021/es2026592).
PBDE’s contain bromine as part of their molecular structure. Bromine is a toxic substance that is a known goitrogen. It has no known therapeutic value in the body. To date, I have tested over 500 patients for bromine levels. Unfortunately, I have found bromine toxicity occurring in a surprisingly large amount of my patients—nearly 100% of those that I have tested.
If this study is replicated in humans, this could explain, in part, why we are seeing such a rapid rise in chronic health problems. Perhaps this rise in health issues is due to our increasing exposure to toxic agents such as bromine. In our modern society it is hard to avoid some sources of bromine. However, food sources of bromine can easily be avoided. Bromine is commonly found in food and drink. Food made with brominated flour or drinks with brominated vegetable oil can be avoided. Avoid baked products that contain brominated flour. Mountain Dew and AMP energy drink are examples of two sodas with bromine. Some Gatorade products also contain bromine.
Supplementing with iodine can help the body release bromine. On the other hand, bromine exposure can cause the body to excrete iodine. It is important to ensure that your iodine levels are adequate so that your body can keep bromine levels to a minimum.
Ingesting adequate amounts of unrefined salt is also helpful. Salt helps the body excrete bromine.

Can you reverse liver damage and fatty liver disease?
As the number one detoxifying organ, the liver is a very vital organ and it is imperative that it function correctly. Even a small problem in the liver can mean serious problems for your body. You may not realize this but the liver cleanses toxins from the body and those same toxins can attack the liver. When this happens, the liver becomes slow to process the large amount of toxins in the body. In fact detoxifying is one of the most important health functions your body does.
This is what is known as a liver cleanse. The process of a liver flush or cleanses removes small stones or crystals from this important organ. Before you embark on your liver cleanse it is important that you perform a colon and kidney cleanse too. After completing both of those, you will be ready for a liver cleanse.
For best results – Do a complete colon cleanse at home FIRST
To fully remove toxins from your system and more importantly your blood stream, it is important to perform a liver flush often. This particularly true if you consume a diet high in fast food or alcohol. The good news is a liver cleanse is relatively simple.
The first agent you will need to complete your liver cleanse is apple juice and plenty of it. For five days before your liver flush, you will want to drink copious amount of juice. Apple juice contains malic acid, which will help loosen stones, and other debris connected to the walls of the liver tubules.
The next step involves the use of Epsom salts in water or your favorite fruit drink. This will relax the muscles and soothe the bile ducts. This is important because without it the large particles will cause pain when they exit the liver. Rest assured Epsom salt will make the liver cleanse process much easier on you.
You will next use virgin olive oil, this substance affects the gall bladder and bile duct helping them contract firmly. Liver waste runs through the bile ducts and these are small openings, olive oil will make it easier for large particles to move through and not be trapped.
The final step will include the use of grapefruit and lemons. Between the olive oil and these citric fruits, everything will flow smoothly and help prevent nausea. When the olive oil gets to the intestines, it will lubricate the way to carry the stones and other debris from the liver.
The above techniques will be quite useful in the process of your liver flush, especially in the area of pain prevention. If you have lived your life without ever doing a liver cleanse you will want to do so now, you will be amazed at the difference it can make in your overall health.

Colon and Liver Cleanse - the secret to digestion and energy
It may not be good, but the fact of the matter is, we as humans put a lot of harmful things into our body. Alcohol, fatty foods and other things are terrible things that some of us put into our bodies every day. The liver is the primary detoxifying organ so it’s important that it always remains working to its best ability. However the toxins that the livers helps to get rid of also attack the liver, causing it to fill up with a bunch of toxins which can impair what it’s there to do.
A liver cleanse is helps wash the small stones and crystals that are harmful in the liver. It’s important to cleanse the liver on a regular basis, especially if you consume excessive amounts of alcohol and processed food. If you leave the liver clogged and continue with these harmful habits, it’s only a matter of time before the liver stops working completely and allows harmful toxins into the body. The toxins can get into the blood steam and travel all around the body and causes illnesses. The best thing about liver cleansing is you can do it from home.
Apple juice is an important first step in the liver cleansing process. It’s important to drink this about 5 days prior to the actual start of the liver cleansing. The apple juice contains malic acid which helps loosen stones and other particles that are attached the walls of the liver.
The next step is Epsom salts dissolved in water. This helps relax the muscle in the bile duct so that large painful particles can flow smooth and easy. The next step is olive oil. This helps the gall bladder and bile duct to contract, which can force large particles out of the liver that could get trapped. If you mix the olive oil with grapefruit or lemons can help it travel through the stomach and reduce nausea. Once the olive oil reaches the small intestine, it helps carry away the stones and other particles.
The bad habits of excessive alcohol, fast food consumption and other things have a negative affect on the body. In order to reduce that negative effect, it’s important to have a properly working liver. In order to keep your liver in perfect working order, it’s almost essential to do a regular liver cleanse. Keeping your liver clean could be the difference in being healthy or coming down with a dangerous disease.
