Topic: Iodine – why we need it.
Ellen Kamhi PhD, RN, www.naturalnurse.com, interviews Maggie Martakis, founder of Maggies Holistics NY. Dissatisfied with conventional treatments while trying to heal her son’s health issues, as well as her own, Maggie Martakis sought a holistic approach. She discovered that we are exposed daily to radiation, fluorine, chlorine and bromine chemicals, as they can be found in many of our foods, soft drinks, toothpastes, pools, water, air and household chemicals. These chemicals and heavy metals accumulate and get stored in our body interfering with thyroid function, the endocrine glandular system and can cause calcification of our pineal gland (aka third eye) lowering our IQ. Healthy levels of iodine help prevent toxic build up of these chemicals and with proper diet assists our cells to take in the proper nutrients and minerals. Additional health benefits include increased energy and weight loss. Using this knowledge enabled her to successfully tackle her family’s health issues holistically. The founder of Maggie’s Holistics, NYC, Maggie is a holistic healer, certified in Reiki and Kundalini yoga with a degree in the Sciences and Art History. She is also currently studying Ayurvedic Medicine.
