Might as well get right to the point. I applaud all you health seekers out there and all your efforts. I think the hardest thing about improving health is to recognize what's important as you pass from one bit of information to the next. So easily you can go off trying this or learning that and lose basic principles and all proportion. There's lots of basics and I don't have them all categorized yet, but let's touch on the basic of the basic.
Sufficient Iron and Iodine are VITAL to your health. Having a hard time figuring out the best way to get these? Having trouble taking them? Too bad! Figure it out! Figure it out right now!!! Iron and iodine are at the basis for every health decision you make. Get help. Do what ever it takes to be sufficient in these minerals. Every process of the body requires them. Learn what you require and get it.
If you have cancer, but not enough iodine, your cancer treatments may not work at all. If you have sufficient iodine, you might not have gotten cancer in the first place!!! And iron? It's only used in every red blood cell. You know, the guys that transport your nutrients and oxygen- IOW your health.
