This simple savory miso soup has many health benefits.
Besides being rich in iodine and good for thyroid and endocrine health, the kelp seaweed used in this recipe, binds with lead and mercury and helps excrete heavy metals from the body.
Kelp contains something called algin.
According to botanist, Ryan Drum, “Algin has great therapeutic value as a heavy metal detoxifying agent. When added to the diet as a component of edible brown seaweed, algin powder, or sodium alginate, it can bind heavy metals present in the food stream and carry them out with the stool, since algin is generally not digestible”
When I was healing from my autoimmune thyroid condition, I ate kelp and other sea vegetables a few times per week for a couple of years, and this naturally and effectively reduced my heavy metal load in the most savory and delicious way.
Here’s a yummy example of my simple and Savory Miso Soup.

- Dilute miso in a small amount of warm water and add to the pot.
