Kelp

Kelp

Kelp is common to many New England and Eastern seaboard shorelines that are rocky and have low tide water marks. This sea vegetation is olive-green in color, regularly branched, with branches of spiraling shape and leathery feel. They may occasionally lack air bladders, but usually occur with paired bladders. The midrib is distinct and the stipe unbranched as it comes out of the disc-shaped holdfast.

Kelp should be used to correct an insufficiency of normal glandular performance. The best way to do this is to make a simple clear broth using fresh or dried kelp. The liquid is strained and consumed like soup; kelp is sweet and delicious and increases glandular activity.

USES
Due to its iodine content, kelp is taken as an ant goiter remedy. Kelp appears to raise the metabolic rate by increasing hormone production by the thyroid gland, but this increase may be limited to poorly functioning thyroids. Kelp is reputedly helpful in rheumatic conditions.
  • Other medical uses - Colorectal cancer.

    HABITAT AND CULTIVATION
    Kelp is native to the shores of the North Atlantic and western Mediterranean, and is harvested throughout the year.


    CONSTITUENTS
    Kelp contains phenols, polysaccharides, and Minerals, especially iodine (up to 0.1%). The polysaccharides are immune-stimulant. The iodine may stimulate the thyroid gland.


    HOW MUCH KELP TO TAKE
    Kelp may usefully be taken in tablet form as a dietary supplement or as an infusion by pouring a cup of boiling water onto 2-3 teaspoonfuls of the dried herb and leaving it to steep for 10 minutes. This should be drunk three times a day.


    APPLICATIONS
  • TINCTURE - Take for thyroid deficiency, as a gentle metabolic stimulant, or for rheumatic conditions.
  • INFUSION - Take as the tincture. Can be used as part of a weight-reducing program, especially if obesity is linked to a slow metabolism, but it should not be regarded as an easy method for losing weight.
  • TABLETS/CAPSULES - Take 3 - 6 a day as a metabolic stimulant. Can help reduce obesity related to thyroid under activity.
  • INFUSED OIL - Macerate 500 g dried kelp overnight in 500 ml sunflower oil. Heat in a water bath for two hours and strain. Use the oil externally for arthritic joint pains or rheumatism.


  • SLIMMING POWDER
  • 1 1/3 oz (50 g) kelp powder
  • 1 oz (30 g) marshmallow
  • 3/4 oz (20 g) licorice powder


  • Combine all the ingredients and preserve in a glass jar away from light. Take 1 T (15 g) powder before meals, diluted in 1/2 cup (125 ml) warm water. This mixture fills the stomach, produces a loss of appetite and softens the digestive mucous membranes. It provokes weight loss and acts as a laxative and a tonic. Caution: Do not consume any sugar, brewer's yeast or too much starch at the same time, for there is a risk of too much gas!
