“Healthy living after radiation fallout”

“The best defense is a good offense” when it comes to living in good health and calmness despite the radiation we are surrounded with daily from x-rays, microwaves, cell towers, utility line, cell phones, electric appliances and devices and nuclear fallout.
Natural quality care for the body, calmness and peace for our mind, relationships and spirit and a one pointed focus on doing the very best for ourselves and others is the goal. Worry and fear destroys everything they touch and undermines the best of intentions to progress.
Let us commit ourselves to calmly go forward. There are many ways to build the body to protect it from the effects of radiation.

Suggested home first aid for radiation exposure

First within the body if one has been exposed to radiation the radioactive particles need to be bound and excrete them from the body.

Here’s the final summary of well-known radiation detox procedures:

For detox from External Contamination from radiation:

If the radioactive exposure just happened, flush the exposed areas with copious amounts of water and clip the hair if there is excessive radioactive contamination nuclear power plant melt down or a bomb blast).

1. Wash wounds vigorously (scrub them) to make sure no radioactive contaminants can enter the body, and sometimes this is done with special chelation solutions.  (Check www.RadiationDetox.com)
2. Types of baths needed 1-3 times per week)

  • Follow with a clay baths to help remove radioactive heavy metals from the skin
  • Soak in a warm sea salt and baking soda baths (1 lb or 2.2 Km) of both sea salt and baking soda for 20 minutes then rinse with cool water.
  • Epson/Clorox baths are possible for this type of heavy metal detox as well. They are used at home for general detoxification purposes and tend to energize the body. Use 6 oz (.17 kg) Epson salts and 3 TBS (45 grams) Chlorox in warm water then rinse in cool water.
  • Bentonite or other clay baths (1 cup or )

Tp protect the body or cleans it after contamination:

After exposed to radioactive particles, the emergency room may use  EDTA chelation therapy, Prussian Blue or the use of other binding agents.

At home take Potassium iodide to help the thyroid gland block from radioiodide uptake, and follow the detox food plan above.

Spirulina, chlorella and other seaweeds

A high fiber diet, or chelating substances (pectin, alginates, …)

Fish oils: (cod liver and krill oils) can help suppress levels of proinflammatory cytokines to decrease systemic inflammation and injury new red blood cell-forming proteins. Nettle leaf extract can be helpful.
Lack of melatonin has been linked to a decrease in red blood cells and anemia, so keep a bottle of melatonin to encourage deeper sleep during stressful times and to protect the cells from the damaging effects of radioactivity.
Nettles leaf and yellow dock (and in some case red root

Homeopathic Ferrum phos 6c can help the body recover from anemia.
Rebuilding the body or building it require blood building, with quality whole raw or steamed vegetables and raw fruits, vitamins and minerals and fatty acids.

Try vegetable juicing, green powders, spirulina, chlorella, seaweeds and other easily digestable foods, especially those containing large sources of chlorophyll to build strong healthy red blood cells and oxygenate the blood.

As to specific herbs and formulations you can use, just as with homeopathy you should go by the advice of a skilled practitioner.
