DESCRIPTION: Five cents worth of seaweed a day may dramatically improve a major cause of disability and compromised quality of life among women.
I’m so glad I finally got an endometriosis video out. I think the only other video I touch on it is What Diet Best Lowers Phthalate Exposure? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/what-diet-best-lowers-phthalate-exposure).
I’ve also been neglecting sea vegetables. I did do Which Seaweed is Most Protective Against Breast Cancer? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/which-seaweed-is-most-protective-against-breast-cancer/) and more recently, Wakame Seaweed Salad May Lower Blood Pressure (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/wakame-seaweed-salad-may-lower-blood-pressure) with more on the way.
I’d recommend staying away from kelp and hijiki, though. See Too Much Iodine Can Be as Bad as Too Little (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/too-much-iodine-can-be-as-bad-as-too-little/).
Other natural remedies for menstrual problems include
• Dietary Treatment for Painful Menstrual Periods (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/dietary-treatment-for-painful-menstrual-periods/)
• Flax Seeds for Breast Pain (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/flax-seeds-for-breast-pain/)
• Ginger for Nausea, Menstrual Cramps, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/ginger-nausea-menstrual-cramps-irritable-bowel-syndrome/)
• Fennel Seeds for Menstrual Cramps and PMS (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/fennel-seeds-for-menstrual-cramps-and-pms/)
