Cherry angiomas are red moles on your skin which contain an abnormal amount of blood vessels.
These can be extremely small and less than 5 millimeters or can grow larger.
They are considered to be painless and harmless. Coloring can be from red to purple, often dome-shaped and may be located on the trunk, limbs, face scalp, neck, but rarely the hands.
These skin lesions are extremely common. Sometimes, they may appear as clusters of dilated capillaries on the surface of the skin or may appear alone.
Here is a photo of some of the red moles I have on my skin.
Most physicians and medical information would have you believe these skin lesions appear in mid to late adulthood.
However, the latest statistics report that ninety percent of women have this condition.
Of that percentage, eighty percent are women under twenty years old.
Unfortunately, this condition is now appearing on babies and young children.
Medical researchers declare there is no known cause for this. It's "just something that happens in old age."
Some doctors believe this is sun damage to the skin. Some believe it is a genetic malfunction.
They fail to fully address the question of why this skin condition is happening.
The condition of cherry angioma is cosmetically unappealing but not life threatening. Some individuals may chose to undergo painful treatment which would be:
There is no guarantee any of these are a permanent cure. Sometimes additional treatment is needed.
Still, this does not address the underlying cause.
Cherry angiomas are caused by bromine poisoning. Research conducted by Drs. A. D. Cohena, E. Cagnanob, and D. A. Vardya, shows the correlation between bromine poisoning and cherry angiomas.
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."
Bromine poisoning symptoms may be any or all of the following:
Some products which contain bromine are:
Additional products containing polybrominated diphenylethers (PBDEs)can be found at The Environmental Working Group.
Dr. David Brownstein, author of "Iodine - Why you Need it - Why you Can't Live without it", states that the consequences of bromine binding to the iodine receptors in the body is "disastrous".
Iodine supplementation, according to Dr. Brownstein, allows the body to detoxify the bromine and restore iodine enzyme metabolism.
He suggests the use of Lugols liquid iodine 25 - 50 mg a day or Iodoral (pill form).
He recommends 10,000 mg of Vitamin C a day along with a magnesium supplement, to help with detoxification and 10 grams of Celtic Sea Salt, not regular table salt.
Additionally, an Epson salt bath using 2 cups in bath water should be done twice a week to remove toxins.
Dr. Guy Abraham, noted researcher, points out that with the addition of iodine, bromine is excreted along with other toxic elements in the body including fluoride.
This offers a full body detox allowing the body to gradually reduce the cherry angiomas from the skin naturally.
For topical treatment of cherry angiomas, the following have been successful in varying degrees:

You need to be concerned about this toxic halogen and how it affects your body by causing an iodine deficiency. There is a simple cure but it does not happen overnight.
