How To Reduce Radiation Levels in the Body
Following the Nuclear Disaster at Fukushima we all need to be mindful about the effects of radiation on our health.
This post is a follow-up to the one I put up about a week ago, entitled
‘What Foods Can I Eat To Prevent Radiation Poisoning?”‘
The main objective is to keep radiation levels down so that your health will not be impaired too much by the excessive amount of radiation, and other toxins coming from chemical and oil fires in Japan, There are toxins in the air in New Zealand right now which are very detrimental to the health.
I noted that the Indian guru Sai Baba was taken to hospital last week, in India, with breathing problems. He is 84 years old, which would have a bearing on his illness, but I feel sure that the fumes in the air, compounded with radiation over many parts of India, will have tipped the scales and led to his getting ill. Here in New Zealand, I have experienced breathing difficulties as one of the symptoms arising after the nuclear disaster at Fukushima, exacerbated, I think, by chemical fires and oil fires which burned for days after the accident around the Sendai area of Japan.
Yesterday, the 9th April 2011, Auckland was again polluted with this strange combination of poisons coming from Fukushima and other parts of Japan, I guess, where there have been chemical fires. We have had about a week of the situation improving, and I think this was because of the cold southerly winds which we had coming to New Zealand. These winds come from the opposite direction to Japan in respect to New Zealand. But unfortunately, these poisons are with us again, though, not quite as severe as earlier.
Yesterday, we had a very warm and beautiful day, with the air quite still. This change of weather brought about the same symptoms experienced about 10 days after the Japanese earthquake/tsunami/nuclear disaster I can taste a metallic-like poison which is corrosive: This strange poison in the air causes sore eyes, slight nausea with pain in the gut from time to time, nerve pain down the arms and legs, sore neck glands, sore ears, headache and general weakness.
So – it is obviously not time, yet, to relax my counteractive measures to reduce radiation. Here they are:
Avoiding Exposure to the Elements: Now is not the time to be sun-bathing. Wait a few weeks, at least, for this round of pollution to disperse a bit before letting your skin get the sun. It is not just the sun which will do you damage at the moment – by exposing skin to the air, you are increasing your radiation absorption.
Clean Water is Essential. Get bottled water from a reliable source. If you have a water tank, disconnect the inlet hose and cover up the water so that radioactive particles and other pollutants do not enter the water. When the tank runs out, depending on where you are, it may be possible to collect more water. But in New Zealand, I would do this only when a southerly wind was on us, and I would not collect the water at all in the first day, as this rain will be quite acid. Already I have seen some plants burned from the effects of the first rains which came here following the Fukushima disaster.
Colour Therapy: Green Solarized Water will help reduce the bad effects of radiation in your body, and will negate it to a certain extent. This is very simple to do: Just fill a nice green wine bottle with clean water and leave it on your window-sill. Best not to leave it outside at the moment, while these radioactive particles are flying about. Leave the water inside, in the sun, for a day before drinking. You can use several glasses a day for drinking. Radiation is red in colour and vibration, so using its opposite colour, green will help alleviate some of the effects of the excessive red in radiation.
Calcium is a good protector against radiation. Make sure that you get the daily reccommended allowance. This is best taken from sesame seeds, or sunflower seeds, or soy milk or tofu. Sardines with their little bones are a good source of calcium, but make sure that they are processed before the Fukushima March 11 , 2011 nuclear disaster.
One handful of sesame seeds, preferably ground up in your blender, will provide MORE than the recommended daily allowance. Sesame seeds are an excellent source of calcium – richer even than dairy milk.
Magnesium: A little epsom salts every second day or so will help ‘up’ your magnesium levels. Magnesium is important for the nerves, and it helps in the assimilation of calcium. Sesame seeds also have magnesium in them, but if you get a severe dose of radiation, with your health severely affected, then epsom salts will help to alleviate those nerve and bone pains.
Avoid taking dairy milk, cheese, butter and cream for the meantime. Cows grazing over large amounts of grass will pick up the radiation on the grass, and this gets concentrated in the milk. Meat and eggs should be avoided for a while, until we can see for sure that radiation levels have lessened enough to be safe. While the situation is still volatile in Fukushima, and at another nuclear facility, apparently, we are best to avoid dairy foods, especially, as these will have high concentrations of radiation.
Avoid large leafy green vegetables and fruit which has been sitting outside for the past few weeks. Best to use tinned food packed before 11 March 2011. Root vegetables will be safe as long as they have not been dug up near Fukushima.
Buy Grains and Seeds Now: Sprouted Grains and Seeds are the best foods for counteracting radiation and protecting the body’s immunity. Buy a good quantity now, just in case the situation at Fukushima gets worse: Very important to have grains and seeds harvested before these radiation toxins entered the atmosphere.
Grow Sprouts For Vitamin C, Minerals, Enzymes and Chlorophyll: With your unpolluted, clean water, you can grow your mung beans (moong beans), aduki beans (adzuki beans), lentils, wheat, chick peas, and other things. Grow them in jars along your window sills and in other sunny areas inside the house.
Cover Your Body With Clothing: Again, to stress the importance of protecting against radiatioactive particles in the air: Avoid getting your body exposed to these poisons unnecessarily. Until a week ago, I was avoiding the outdoors, as the poisons were very bad and affected me profoundly. I covered up – head, sunglasses, scarf over the face, coat, socks and shoes. I avoided putting my washing outside during this period. In the past week, I have not needed to take such vigilant measures, although the stuff still affected eyes. I put one lot of washing out to dry on a day when the southerly winds were very strong. But as from yesterday, I am again being very cautious. No more washing outside for now.
Sunglasses are very important: The eyes are very sensitive. Radiation causes blindness in severe exposure, so it stands to reason that smaller amounts may affect your vision. Protecting with sunglasses actually helps prevent the corrosive radiation chemicals from reaching your eyes, and sunglasses also protect against the extra glare caused by radioactive particles in the air.
Tea Drinking is Helpful. Good old ceylon tea – my preference is Dilmah – is a great antioxidant. Tea is high in manganese, magnesium and other beneficial minerals and vitamins which help counteract that radiation and chemical poisoning. Ceylon Tea, or Green Tea, which comes from the same plant, are great anti-oxidants.
Extra Vitamin C: If you have been severely affected by radiation, then a boost of a non-acidic Vitamin C, such as Ester C, or Calcium Ascorbate, will be very helpful. Between 1000mg to 3000mg per day can be taken by an adult, 1000mg at a time. If your condition is very bad, then you may have to see a doctor or other health professional to get intravenous Vitamin C. This can be taken in doses of up to 75grammes, but for this to be necessary would be a near death situation.
If your exposure is minimal and you wish to take precautions, then take 1000mg of non-acidic Vitamin C per day.
Boost Your Iodine Intake– This is really important. Get your kelp, spirulina supplies now, and your tinned fish if you like fish. Food iodine in the diet is very important, as you will absorb the radioactive iodine coming from Fukushima unless you ensure that you are getting iodine every day.
Liquid Iodine: Dabbing two or three drops of liquid iodine onto the scalp or the soles of the feet will help keep your iodine levels up. You can do this once or twice a week
Alternatively, you can use a home make iodine solution which Dr Maud Frere used in her cancer therapy:
Iodine Solution: Of this, you use only ONE TEASPOO N per day. Mix one drachm of liquid iodine into two ounces of pure clean water. Mix and keep in the fridge. Use one teaspoon a day for adults, quarter of that for children five to twelve years. Do not use for children under five. To treat young children with Iodine, t is best to dab a drop of liquid iodine on a small child’s foot, just once a week.
My friend in Spirit, Bernhard Petersen, says “Hello My Friend. New ways to beat radiation will be given to you. A pressure point on the head will prove to be effective. It is important to buy grains now -RICE is very important. Get your seeds now, also, to ensure that they have not been exposed to radiation. A Blue Light-bulb will help negate the effects of radiation.”
Thankyou Bernhard. The blue light reminds me that if you are avoiding being outside because of the toxins currently in our air, you can improve your Vitamin D levels by sitting under a normal white-yellow light bulb. The body actually processes this light as if it was sunlight. Not quite as good, of course, but it is a good tip to remember in case you have to keep inside for long periods.
