We are hearing more and more information about radioactive fallout as a result of the Japan nuclear crisis. It seems that the newsletter I received from Regenerative Nutrition on the 19th March 2011 is already coming to fruition. They recommended that precautions should be taken by every citizen in the northern hemisphere that is downwind and on the track of the jet stream that will carry radioactive materials first to North America, then to Europe and beyond to Russia. Well I have heard today that fallout is already in the rain in North America and in Scotland. Unfortunately, Iodine alone will do nothing to protect a person from uranium, cesium or plutonium radiation exposure. So listed below is the remedy combination recommended by Regenerative. which I feel I should share with you (use as directed on the containers)
Iodine – If there is enough non-radioactive iodine in our bodies, the radioactive iodine fallout has nowhere to bind in our bodies. It will pass through us leaving our bodies unharmed. Ensure we have adequate iodine levels before the fall out hits.
Sodium Bicarbonate – 1 teaspoon in a glass of water daily. In times of contamination,this can be increased up to 1 teaspoon in a glass of water 3 times a day for up to 2 weeks (but no longer as the body can become too alkaline which is a dangerous condition in itself). After 2 weeks revert to 1 teaspoon daily. Do not use baking powder. Sodium Bicarbonate can bind with uranium in the kidneys (the organs most likely to be damaged by radioactive uranium) and convert it to uranium bicarbonate that is flushed out in the urine.
Seagreens – 3 capsules twice daily which helps prevent re-absorption of particles into the bowel and so aids elimination from the body.
Sea Salt – 1 teaspoon daily dissolved in 4 pints of water and drunk over the course of the day. If you cannot manage 4 pints a day then drink whatever you can. This helps to flush out contamination from the body.
Anti-oxidants – Radiation damages cells largely via free-radical attack and antioxidants help to electronically reduce/prevent this damage.
Selenium – Selenium and Iodine are complementary so high iodine doses may emphasise selenium deficiency/need.
Coriander – Either leaf or powder, speeds up heavy metal detox.
Hope this information is helpful.
