Seaweed Therapy from the oceans
How many people actually EAT seaweed? Is it just a coastal living
thing? Many people eat fish, lobster, shrimp! But hardly ever the
plants in the sea. Living in Atlanta I had only eaten it in 'faux'
Sushi,but since moving to the ocean 5 1/2 years ago, I gave it a try in
many other things and fell in love. Well, as much as you can fall in
love with seaweed.... When we eat sea plants we are tapping into the
ancestral and restorative source of all life-the ocean.Ounce for ounce,
they are higher in vitamins and minerals than any other food.Sea greens
are one of natures richest sources of vegetable protein,providing full
spectrum of beta carotene, chlorophyll, enzymes,amino acids,fiber, and
Octacosanol for tissue oxygenation. They are in fact the most
nutritionally dense plants on the planet. Some of the things they can
do for the body from the inside
are cleanse and purify like they do our oceans, use their powerful
antioxidants to promote anti-cancer activity, boost overall bone
health, and help to balance your thyroid. They are also extremely
beneficial to pregnant women.
Sea green antioxidants can also increase your body's fat-burning ability.
And If you are not EATING seaweed, you should at least be putting it on your skin!
the Goddess of Love who rose out of the sea, owed her supple skin,
shiny hair , and sparkling eyes to the plants of the sea. Seaweed
returns mineral salts to your skin that other environmental factors
deplete. Skin cells retain moisture better from these essential
minerals therefore increasing the elasticity and overall appearance.
All the while adding amazing luster!
A seaweed bath is the most
effective way to get the wondrous benefits! Seaweed balances your body
chemistry instead of dehydrating it. The electrolytic magnetic action
of the sea plants releases excess body fluids from congested cells and
dissolves fatty wastes through the skin, replacing them with key
minerals. If you live near an unpolluted ocean you can harvest the
plants yourself, otherwise you can buy specialty seaweed soaks (coming
soon to the DHW
dehydrated forms at your local health food store. Immerse yourself in
the transforming bath and let it work it's magick on you by coating and
increasing perspiration to release toxins from your system, and
replaces them by osmosis with minerals. 45 minutes is usually about
right to balance the acid-alkaline system. Skin tone, color, and better
circulation are almost immediately noticeable. Dry brush your skin
before hand for best results. If you are under care for heart disease
or high blood pressure , check with the Dr. to see if this is ok for
