Could Cherry Anginomas Be Related to Bromide Toxicity?

Cherry Anginomas. What are they? Where do they come from? Are they a “normal part of life” like we’ve been told, or is there something deeper?
The answer to the last question: they’re absolutely not a natural part of life. The body makes no mistakes. It was built perfectly. If you have a symptom (such as cherry anginomas) it’s a sign from your body that something is wrong. It’s a cry for help that leaves a clue (in the form of a big red dot) that there’s a much larger root issue.
Any time something appears on the surface of your skin, it’s a sign that your body is trying to push toxins out to get them away from your organs. In fact, the fat on the surface of your body is also a defense mechanism to store toxins your outside, away from your precious liver, kidneys, and more.
A major reason people hit a “plateau” or have trouble losing weight in the first place is because their fat is serving a crucial purpose to their body. When we ingest toxins (pesticides, plastic, fluoride, chemicals), the body quickly pushes them to your fat cells in order to save your organs. This is why a skinny person with an unhealthy lifestyle can be in more danger of symptoms and sickness than a person who is slightly overweight and has an unhealthy lifestyle.
Cellulite is an extreme example of this built-in defense mechanism. The reason some people develop cellulite and some do not is because cellulite is what your fat cells turn into when they’re at their limit of toxins. Someone with cellulite is in a more advanced state of toxicity than someone without (or they are carrying toxicity heavily in one specific place). Even though you may be working out and trying to lose weight, if you’re not properly detoxing toxins and chemicals, you won’t budge. Your body is trying to protect you. Flush the toxins, and you’ll flush the weight! This is also why low-calorie chemical-laden diets don’t work or last. Yes, you’re eating a 200 calorie Weight Watchers meal… but it’s filled with synthetic ingredients that are telling your liver, “I’m coming to get you! You better store me away in some fat cells if you want to survive!”
Bottom line: Your body stores toxins in your fat AND YOUR SKIN (pimples, anginomas, skin tags) to help minimize how much toxicity your vital organs are exposed to. Cherry Anginomas are not normal. They are a clue from your body telling you that something is acting as a poison.
What exactly are these anginomas?
Cherry angiomas are cherry red papules on the skin containing an abnormal proliferation of blood vessels… Cherry angiomas are made up of clusters of capillaries at the surface of the skin, forming a small round dome (“papule”), which may be flat topped. They range in color from bright red to purple. (Source)
What class of toxins cause them?
According to Dr. A. D. Cohena, Dr. E. Cagnanob, and Dr. D. A. Vardya, cherry angiomas are most likely caused by bromine poisoning (Source). Research conducted by their team showed a distinct correlation between bromine poisoning and these pesky skin disturbances.
“Mysterious red moles appeared on researchers’ bodies after working for extended periods of time with brominated compounds. Bromine poisoning, stored in the fat tissues, is a halogen. It is a known disruptor which prevents the absorption of iodine in the body. The body attempts to move the toxin away from vital body organs storing it in fat tissues and in the skin where it resides as ‘red dots’.” (Source)
How are we being poisoned with bromide?
Our food and drink these days has a plethora of unnecessary ingredients used only to benefit the manufacturers who care little about our personal health. One ingredient is bromate, which comes in the form of sodium or potassium benzoate in bread; brominated vegetable oil (BVO) in Sprite, Mountain Dew and Gatorade; or as methyl bromide in pesticides. I personally hypothesize that pesticides are our largest source of exposure.
Other products that contain bromide:
- Brominated vegetables
- Asthma inhalers
- New furniture, carpeting, bedding, cars
- Fire retardants especially in children’s clothing
- Hair permanents and coloring
Bromide is related to fluoride or iodine in the family of elements and is toxic to humans. In fact, it is in so many common products that it competes with the iodine receptor sites in the body and displaces iodine from important sites like the thyroid, breast and other endocrine sites. This leads to dysfunction, uprooted metabolism and hypothyroidism. It also can lead to breast cancer.
As the body tries relentlessly to properly use iodine despite massive exposure to bromide, it hoards the bromide in cherry papules or angiomas at the surface of your skin. As I stated earlier, his is a telltale sign that your body is desperately trying to function properly by ushering away the toxic bromide from internal organs. Your body exhausts every effort to heal itself but you must do your part to be aware.
We can also develop bromide dominance when we have an iodine deficiency. Almost every single person in our Western society is iodine deficient. We are eating miniscule amounts of food that contain iodine (SEAWEED and seafood).
I’m not a doctor, but I’m pretty darn good at navigating my body (with the help of my sidekick Lily). All I can tell you is my thought process and what I do to detox bromide in my particular body.
Common sense: if fluoride, bromide, and iodine are all halogens… and too much fluoride/bromide displaces iodine… put the iodine back in to displace the bromide!
My favorite form of iodine is Nascent Iodine.
I feel a huge difference when I remember to put this liquid gold in my water. Nascent Iodine is a consumable iodine in its atomic form rather than its molecular form. This means that the iodine atoms can hold an electromagnetic charge. This “charged” state is held by the atom until diluted in water and consumed, whereby it gradually loses energy over a 2-3 hour time span. During this time, Nascent Iodine is recognized by the body as the same iodine that is produced by the thyroid and is absorbed effortlessly by the body.
It speeds up my thyroid, gives me energy, and boosts my metabolism (hello hunger!) I started with just a few drops and worked my way up to my personal sweet spot. Everyone is different.
Have you tried Nascent Iodine before? What was your experience? Let me know in the comments!
