Well...: Only if you're swimming in a nice ocean beach with it.

Not by itself: Seaweed can be very nutritious. Kelp, for instance, is a source of vitamins a, b1, b2, c, d and e, plus amino acids. (it can also be very salty though). Other kinds have good minerals. Nori has calcium for your bones, iron, and iodine for thyroid. Magnesium is in others, and this can be a calming mineral. A therapist can help you learn about & deal with your individual stresses.

Stress: Exercise, listen to music, take a class at the gym for something you've never done before, go to a yoga class, learn to meditate, have candles burning with scents that you like. Think of your senses of sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch and try to do something to enhance those senses.
