I once had a Japanese exchange student living with me and she took a walk on the beach with me one day and pointed to all the different kinds of seaweed. That one's good, that one's really good. She even knew the names in Japanese for them all. You can't go wrong with kelp. It's all edible. The ocean is clean where I live. So I've been thinking about foraging my own seaweed. Has anyone tried this and had success?
    i live in a coastal state, mississippi, but the oil spill leaves me not wanting to touch ANYTHING washing up on our coast

A handful will expand to an amount you won't believe! LOL

    Don't think of the price (maybe $5-10 for a 50gm bag) as what you are purchasing... a Tbs dried will easily equal at least a half a cup of re-hydrated kelp. It quadruples in size!
    It's really mild and goes well with most anything once yu get used to the texture, but my favorite is to toss it in some broth, and add shrimp sauteed in butter and garlic if it's a meal, sliced green onions on top... NOM!
    OMG! Informative, and you gave me a sick recipe idea! THANK YOU!

    I have seen raw seaweed (not dried) in Asian markets and have ordered a fabulous seaweed salad made from it that tastes like they use soy sauce, probably some bonita flakes, sesame oil and sesame seeds for seasoning (I'm not against such things as seasoning) and then it came optionally with sashimi. Oh my goodness it is so good.

    Have you checked out New Book on Hypothyroidism and Hashimoto's by Datis Kharrazian, DHSc, DC, MS ? That book will tell you which tests you need, as well as what lab ranges should be used to interpret the results.
    I have not, but will try. I have so many books and so little time. I'm attempting to be a grown up and get my blood tests done, but am paralyzed by the choices of what doctor to choose or to go it alone and have tests done at an independent lab or just go to a clinic like I used to do. I used to take Synthroid, but due to the nature of my life/job I've been moving pretty constantly for the last 9 or 10 years which makes it difficult to keep on top of things. At least for me.

    There is a list of practitioners on that site- I'm working with one of them and he's really helped me.

    I started taking kelp capsules because I was struggling with low body temperature and had seriously dry, flaking skin. Six months later the dry skin was gone, and my temperature had raised 1 degree F.
