How to Detox Your Body of Depleted Uranium Residues, the Effects of Radiation, and Radioactive Contamination

It’s sad but true that there are thousands of scientific references and medical studies out there on the fact that radiation and radioactivity can harm you, yet despite millions of dollars spent by the government to study radiation, virtually nothing is available about a detoxification diet or nutritional supplements you might use if you are exposed to radioactive contamination. Here’s some of the information we do know from the only book in the world on the topic. Keep this information in the back of your mind as it may one day help save you or someone you know. (VN: in fact the opposite is true, THEY HAVE TRIED NUMEROUS TIMES TO BAN NATURAL REMEDIES. “NOW” we know why! )
Most people are aware taking potassium iodide (KI) or potassium iodate (KIO3) tablets will help block your thyroid gland from absorbing radioactive iodine should there ever be a dirty bomb explosion or nuclear power plant mishap such as the Three Mile Island incident. In 1999, another such accident happened in Tokaimura, Japan where several individuals died from radiation exposure in a fuel processing facility.
What people don’t recognize is that potassium iodide or iodate tablets only protect the thyroid gland and do not provide protection from any other radiation exposure, so taking them should not give you a false sense of security. It’s important to detox your body after radioactive exposure!

One question is, what do you do if KI or KIO3 tablets aren’t available during an emergency? Interestingly enough, according to research by Ken Miller, health physicist at the Hershey Medical Center, he found that an adult could get a blocking dose of stable iodine by painting 8 ml of a 2 percent tincture of Iodine on the abdomen or forearm approximately 2 hours prior to I-131 contamination. Potassium iodine tablets are best, but if they’re not available this is the next best thing.
An entirely different problem arises after you’ve been exposed to radioactive contamination because now you have to get rid of any radioactive particles you may have ingested through the air you breathed, water you drank, or food you ate. Some people suggest Epson salt, Clorox or clay baths to remove any residues on your skin and to leach out any heavy metals you may have absorbed, but the big worry is internal contamination. To gain some insights into what to do, we have to turn to the story of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki.

At the time of the atomic bombing, Tatsuichiro Akizuki, M.D. was Director of the Department of Internal Medicine at St. Francis’s Hospital in Nagasaki and he fed his staff and patients a strict diet of brown rice, miso and tamari soy soup, wakame, kombu and other seaweed, Hokkaido pumpkin, and sea salt. He also prohibited the consumption of sugar and sweets since they suppress the immune system. By imposing this diet on his staff and patients, no one succumbed to radiation poisoning whereas the occupants of hospitals located much further away from the blast incident suffered severe radiation fatalities.
Much of this positive result has to do with the fact that the sea vegetables contain substances that bind radioactive particles and escort them out of the body. This is why seaweed sales usually skyrocket after radiation disasters, and why various seaweeds and algae are typically used to treat radiation victims.

In Chernobyl, for instance, spirulina was used to help save many children from radiation poisoning. By taking 5 grams of spirulina a day for 45 days, the Institute of Radiation Medicine in Minsk even proved that children on this protocol experienced enhanced immune systems, T-cell counts and reduced radioactivity. Israeli scientists have since treated Chernobyl children with doses of natural beta carotene from Dunaliella algae and proved that it helped normalize their blood chemistry. Chlorella algae, a known immune system builder and heavy metal detoxifier, has also shown radioprotective effects. Because they bind heavy metals, algae should therefore be consumed after exposure to any type of radioactive contamination.
In 1968 a group of Canadian researchers at McGill University of Montreal, headed by Dr. Stanley Skoryna, actually set out to devise a method to counteract the effects of nuclear fallout. The key finding from their studies was that sea vegetables contained a polysaccharide substance, called sodium alginate, which selectively bound radioactive strontium and eliminated it from the body.
Sodium alginate is found in many seaweeds, especially kelp, and since that time the Russians have been seriously researching the use of their own kelps from Vladivlostok, from which they have isolated the polysaccharide U-Fucoidan, which is another radioactive detoxifier. Because miso soup was so effective in helping prevent radiation sickness, the Japanese have also done research identifying the presence of an active ingredient called zybicolin, discovered in 1972, which acts as a binding agent to also detoxify and eliminate radioactive elements (such as strontium) and other pollutants from the body
The kelps and algaes aren’t the only natural foods with radio-detoxifying effects. In terms of fluids to drink, black and green tea have shown radioprotective effects whether consumed either before or after exposure to radiation. This anti-radiation effect was observed in several Japanese studies, and studies from China also suggest that the ingredients in tea are radioactive antagonists.
In short, after any sort of radioactive exposure you want to be eating seaweeds and algaes along with almost any type of commercial heavy metal chelating formula to bind radioactive particlesand help escort them out of the body. Whether you’re worried about depleted uranium, plutonium or other isotopes, this is the wise thing to do which can possibly help, and certainly won’t hurt. Many nutritional supplements have been developed for the purpose of detoxifying heavy metals, most of which contain the algaes and plant fibers and other binding substances.

Basically, an anti-radiation diet should focus on the following foods:
1. Miso soup
2. Spirulina, chlorella and the algaes
3. Brassica vegetables and high beta carotene vegetables
4. Beans and lentils
5. Potassium, calcium and mineral rich foods
6. High nucleotide content foods to assist cellular repair including _ spirulina, chlorella, algae, yeast, sardines,liver, anchovies and mackerel
7. Cod liver oil and olive oil
8. Avoid sugars and sweets and wheat
9. A good multivitamin/multimineral supplement

Yet another benefit of the sea vegetables rarely discussed is their high mineral content, which is a bonus in the case of radioactive exposure. Consuming natural iodine, such as in the seaweeds, helps prevent the uptake of iodine-131 while iron inhibits the absorption of plutonium-238 and plutonium-239. Vitamin B-12 inhibits cobalt-60 uptake (used in nuclear medicine), zinc inhibits zinc-65 uptake and sulfur is preventative for sulfur-35 (a product of nuclear reactors) incorporation by the body.
Since nuclear workers are potentially exposed to radioactive sulfur, this means that workers in the atomic power industry need a higher content of sulfur in their diet. MSM supplements provide a source of dietary sulfur, but thiol supplements such as cysteine, lipoic acid and glutathione serve double-duty in this area because they help detoxify the body and attack all sorts of other health problems as well.
The immune system is usually hit hard after radiation exposure, and a number of steps can be taken to help prevent opportunistic infections after a radioactive incident. Though the full dimensions of the protective mechanism is still unknown, Siberian ginseng is one form of ginseng that exerts a definite radioprotective effect and has been demonstrated to lessen the side effects of radiation. It was widely distributed by the Soviet Union to those exposed Chernobyl radiation and is commonly used to help cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy.

(VN: THIS IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT SINCE A BIOWEAPON FOLLOWING IMMEDIATELY AFTER THIS WOULD WIPE OUT MILLIONS, SO PREVENTIVELY SHORING UP YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM IS CRITICAL AGAINST ANY FURTHER ATTACK. I am putting a notice at the end of this blog to show you what Gmail told me….about this blog being compromised….. THEY DO NOT WANT THIS INFO UP SO THAT MEANS THEY HAVE MORE COMING DOWN THE ROAD.)

Use fresh fruits for your citric acid and not pasturized Juices.
Consuming Reishi mushrooms is another proven way to bolster your immune system after radiation exposure and helps reduce the damage from radiation. It’s been used to decrease radiation sickness in animals and help them recover faster after potentially deadly exposure.
Panax ginseng has prevented hemorrhaging after radiation exposure, prevents bone marrow death and stimulates blood cell formation, so it’s another supplement to add to one’s protocol. In short, yeasts, beta glucans, bee pollen and various forms of ginseng have all been shown to bolster the immune system after radiation incidents. In terms of radiation burns, aloe vera has a proven ability to treat serious radiation burns and offers other radioprotective effects, and can easily be grown in your house.
The amino acid L-Glutamine can be used to help repair the intestine in case of the gastrointestinal syndrome usually suffered due to radiation exposure, and a variety of substances can help rebuild blood cells to prevent hematopoietic syndrome. Those particular foods include beet juice, liver extract, spleen extract, and shark alkyglycerols. Most oncologists don’t know that shark liver oil, with alkyglycerols, can help platelet counts rebound in days.
Depleted uranium is currently in the journalistic spotlight because US weapons are made from this material, and after being fired leave a legacy of depleted uranium dust in the environment, which anyone can absorb. Because the kidneys are usually the first organs to show chemical damage upon uranium exposure, military manuals suggest doses or infusions of sodium bicarbonate to help alkalinize the urine if this happens. This makes the uranyl ion less kidney-toxic and promotes excretion of the nontoxic uranium carbonate complex.
In areas contaminated by depleted uranium dusts, it therefore makes sense to switch to drinking slightly alkaline water and to favor a non-acidic diet to assist in this detoxification. Any of the heavy metal detoxifiers, such as miso soup, chlorella, spirulina and seaweeds, are also commonsense warranted.

Another thing you can do is use homeopathics for radiation exposure. People commonly argue over whether homeopathy work or not, but if you assume the position that they produce no results whatsoever then you must also assume that they certainly won’t hurt you, which means the only loss from using them is a few dollars. Frankly, there are countless cases and double-blind studies where homeopathic tinctures do provoke physical healing effects in the body. Therefore they are a viable adjunct treatment option. One homeopathic, in particular, is URANIUM NITRICUM (nitrate of uranium)which homeopaths suggest should be used in cases of depleted uranium exposure or uranium poisoning. Not just soldiers or civilians exposed to battlefield dusts, but uranium miners and radiation workers may find it quite useful.
While we’ve discussed just a few of the many supplements and protocols you can use to help detox the body of the lingering results of radioactive contamination, including the residues of depleted uranium, the last thing that might be of interest is that there is a plant that is a natural geiger counter. Thespiderwort plant is so sensitive to changes in radiation levels (its petals change color upon exposure) that it’s often used as a natural radiation detector (dosimeter), just as they use canaries in mines as detectors of poisonous gas. Some people like knowing that they have an ongoing monitoring system for radiation in the environment, and this is just another tip available in “How to Neutralize the Harmful Effects of Radiation or Radioactive Exposure.”

DR CLARK IS BEING SUED FOR CURING PEOPLE. I think a lot of us downwind of the nuclear plants would live healthy if we followed her advise. The testimonials are overwhelming and the cures are based on her observations from a higher awareness.

She has to be doing something right to be sued by the US FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION. I don’t think they sue the bad guys.

Natural Treatments Offer Hope To People Affected By DU (or other Radiation) (Sep. 27, 2006)
http://www.rense.com/general73/natrual.htm
Folks who are in the midst of the fields of exposure may be helped by taking kelp or iodine tablets daily in an effort to protect endocrine and immune function.
Kelp and Iodine are controversial, but many holistic physicians are using this type of treatment. Some researchers, however, advise that kelp can contain fluoride, so it may be a ‘Catch 22′. The benefit may outweigh the risk is this situation.
Water soluble iodine or natural nutritional protein bound iodine tablets are generally more effective and safer than Potassium Iodide.
Diabetes in this case may develop from loss of function of the thyroid gland, which in turn effects function of all other endocrine glands, including the pancreas. High quality digestive enzymes and other natural pancreatic support may be helpful.
Dry Skin Brushing follow with a 30 minute tub of hot water with 4 to 5 pounds of pure sea salt and 1-2 cups of miso broth added. Drink 1-cup miso broth while soaking for thirty minutes, Finish with a cool shower.
Sea salt and Baking soda baths: 50/50 mix – is helpful to re-balance the body after exposure to radiation.
Some treatments can be adapted for use in the field.
Red Clover and Chaparral Tea helps cleanse the blood, and it seems to benefit lymphoma type reactions.
Dandelion herb helps the liver and kidneys. It is high in minerals and especially vitamin A. Any help to these organs of elimination is beneficial. Dandelion root is especially helpful to keep blood sugar balanced. (VN: remember kidneys are the most vulnerable.)
Eleuthero or what is called Siberian ginseng helps support the adrenal glands. Other help for these glands are vitamin C and bee pollen. These glands are the ‘fight or flight’ center of your body and are often exhausted in stress.
Alfalfa and spirulina may also be good to use for general support.

Five Flower Remedy and Yarrow Environmental Formula are flower essence remedies that help in anxiety and panic (Five Flower) and environmental over exposure (YES).
Thyroid testing is an important diagnostic tool. Sadly most physicians do not order the correct set of tests to thoroughly evaluate thyroid function. This panel should at least be - ultrasensitive TSH, Free T3 and Free T4. One cannot accurately ‘infer’ the T3 level from TSH and T4 as many doctors claim. If immune dis-orders such as lupus and others are suspected then a reverse T3 is necessary (rT3).
The current range for TSH, since 2003, is 0.3 – 3.2. The optimal rage is 1.5 to 2. If the reading is high you tend to have low thyroid, if opposite you tend to have hyperthyroid. Home kits for thyroid evaluations are available through my office.
Avoid any products containing aspartame, acesulfame K and sucralose.

Please know that each individual responds to this type of environmental trauma differently. For the best results it is important to treat each person accordingly, and in relation to their symptoms.

Good news!

To counteract the recent bad news I am delving into finding more choices for exposures to depleted uranium. First of all there are already studies out there on several different choices for fighting back against depleted uranium exposure. So like I said before ignore the dire warnings that there is no hope for DU exposures that came from the MD of that last report.
Some of these studies focus on chealators and I too still think PCA- RX would effectively deal with DU. But for people who still have mercury amalgams in their mouths it could cause more harm. (as noted before it could continue to pull mercury out of the affixed amalgam) Other chelators have their own risk involved and must be used under the direction of a doctor highly trained to administer them. Not to say they are not good choices. I am saying they must be administered by someone who uses the right chelator and knows exactly what they are doing. But that is not a good choices for everyone because it can cost into the thousands with insurance companies rarely ever paying a dime.
That’s ok, we have better choices that cost MUCH less and there is no need for a doctor to administer them or to pay a hefty price to a supplement provider. These are choices that everyone can afford and that is the kind of choice I always seek out.
Now to the choice for dealing with DU poisoning. Ready? It’s Sodium Citrate otherwise known as citric acid. Citric acid is found in common fruits. It is highly concentrated in lemons, limes, and grapefruits. Also found in oranges. Squeezing a lemon or lime into your pure water can give you a good amount of citric acid. Can you believe how simple that is? I was thrilled to find this study and see we had a good choice affordable to all people.
What was fascinating about this connection to fruit juices and DU was the direct link to many alternative cancer therapies that also involve drinking a LOT of freshly prepared fruit juices to kill cancer cells. At first some of that did not make sense to me for healing mainly due to the high natural sugar content of some of the fruits. But the only way to get the purest forms of the natural enzymes and all of the benefits of fruit juice is to drink it right after it is prepared.
Few people know that once fruit juice (or any liquid like milk,etc) is pasteurized those beneficial properties are destroyed. (VN: so use the actual fruit and squeeze it into the glass)Some even say that if we do not drink freshly made juice within the first 30 minutes that it loses a great deal of it’s healing properties like the natural enzymes that are extremely important for healing. So it appears as if even buying organic juices that are in cartons is really a waste of money if we are seeking all the benefits we could have gained from fruit juices. For even organic juices that I have seen are indeed pasteurized.
Now for other choices to address the exposures of DU...

CLOTHING!!
Few know that when they tested the atomic bomb (Manhattan Project in the 1940′s) they discovered that DU will adhere to cotton clothing and it was hard to remove from it. Laundry detergents would not remove it and this is vital for those who are exposed and in high risk areas. If you have family in the Middle East (in the military or business), or in Europe like I do, this information could be vital for them too. I want to also note that people in Utah, Chicago, and New York tested at higher DU levels then other areas.
The longer that clothes contaminated with DU remain next to the skin the higher the concentrations of DU in their bloodstream. If the person is sweating, and their pores are open -like we would see people doing in the hot climates of the Middle East, the concentrations of the DU is even higher. That is why it is vital to not wear the same clothing in contaminated areas for long term periods and even more vital to know how to get it out before wearing the garments again.
What do we use to get it out of our clothes? Ready for this? Cheap, and easy to obtain, baking soda will remove DU from clothing! Isn’t that great! A choice everyone can afford and easily find. For many people like us who already use baking soda and vinegar to enhance cleaning in our clothes we will already be effectively dealing with that issue. About 6 ounces of baking soda in 2 gallons of water is what is suggested.
They also warn that certain oils and lotions meant to make products absorb deeper into the skin are also dangerous when exposed to DU. That made sense to me. We already discussed the issue of chemical filled beauty products and how the added ingredients that pull those toxins further into our system made them more dangerous. But I wonder about products containing citric acids in them? Many organic products use forms of these acids as a natural preservative. What about aloe based products?Aloe is well noted to effectively heal skin wounds caused by radiation exposures like x-rays. If the aloe product used citric acid as a preservative I would think it would also be a good protective barrier. Wouldn’t that effectively block it? I do not know but it’s good Food for thought.
Many people also sprinkle baking soda in their carpets instead of using toxic chemical filled scents that only mask the odors. I wonder if doing that could be effectively helping the vacuum filter out DU particles trapped in a home?
I wonder if the baking soda would help city water that has DU in it too? Either way it wouldn’t hurt to throw in some baking soda when we wash our pets to ensure we can get DU off of them too and if we are using it in our laundry then it would enter the city water supply. We could look at it like a gift to our community.
When I came across this information I had to share it. We have enough to be terrified with. The only way to combat fear of the unknown is to have choices to combat it. If we are ever exposed ( or if we are currently being exposed) there will be less fear if we know what we can do.
Also note that it is equally important to understand how DU most affects the kidneys and bones at minimum exposures. I would say that it would not be a bad idea to start a preventative program anyway. Drinking a few glasses of fresh water with citrus fruits squeezed in every day could help to keep the kidneys flushed and effectively deal with DU exposures at the same time. The benefits of grapefruit cannot be underestimated either. It’s natural anti-parasitic properties alone could be thwarting many issues inside that would never materialize to full blown illnesses on such a regimen.
The extra bonus of the citric acid revealed in this study was that it showed cellular regeneration and tubular regeneration in the animals of the studies. That is true healing anyway you look at it. Not unlike the cellular healing abilities of aloe this could also be quite an affective healing tool to add to daily life.
Below you will see the source for the original study conducted on animals that were treated with citric acid before and after exposure to lethal doses of uranium. Has this study been conducted on humans? not that I could find. Like I said it can’t hurt to just add this to our diet. Citric acid has many healing properties to it so this is not like added a dangerous substance to a daily program. It IS a choice and that is what we need far more of.
Effect of sodium citrate on uranium poisoning in dogs. GE Gustafson, S Koletsky and AH Free, , 416-423, 1944. This study showed that sodium citrate administered either intravenously (230 mg/kg) or by oral gastric incubation (1.15 g/kg)gave dramatic protection from uranium poisoning. All 7 dogs given sodium citrate orally and all 3 given sodium citrate intravenously survived a lethal dose of uranyl nitrate (i.v.), whereas 5 of the 10 dogs not receiving sodium citrate died within 10 days from uremia and the other 5 were put to death at various times between 2.5 and 7 days. for kidney histology. Renal lesions in citrate treated animals were much less severe and recovery was rapid compared to animals receiving uranyl nitrate only.
____________________________________________________________
The stimulating influence of sodium citrate on cellular regeneration and repair in the kidney injured by uranium nitrate. Donnelly, G.L. and Holman, R.L. Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics75, 11-17, 1942. Dogs given 5 mg uranyl nitrate alone showed acute signs of toxicity and 12 of 13 dogs died between 9 and 13 days after uranium treatment. When 230 mg sodium citrate was given (i.v.) each day for 5 d prior and 5 d after U treatment, only 1 dog died and survivors showed little, if any signs of intoxication from the same dose of U. There was also significant tubular regeneration in the citrate treated animals.

Maximum permissible amounts of natural uranium in the body, air and drinking water based on human experimental data. Bernard, S.R. Health Physics 1, 288-305, 1958. Eight terminally ill brain tumor patients(age 26 to 63) were injected with uranium compounds (uranyl or uranium tetrachloride) – six were comatose prior to injection. The amount injected (i.v.) ranged from 4 to 50 mg U. Uranyl was cleared rapidly in the urine (69 percent in first day). Autopsies revealed uranyl ion migrates mainly to kidney and bones, whereas U(IV) goes mainly to liver and bones, with similar U burdens in kidneys and bones. This study was intended for the purpose of producing useful data on humans with regard to maximum permissible concentrations. The author states that the kidneys become the critical organ for toxic effects of uranium that limits exposure, rather than the radiation damage, although it is not clear how this conclusion was drawn. This paper was from the Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

============================================================
What are practical protective measures for exposed individuals?
During the Manhattan Project to develop the atomic bomb in the early 1940s, many scientists investigated the toxic properties of uranium. They found that uranium oxides stick very well to cotton cloth, but did not wash out with soap or laundry detergent [34]. The uranium would wash out with a 2% solution of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda). Clothing can become contaminated with DU dust and normal laundering will not remove it. Those at risk of DU dust exposure should have their clothing washed with baking soda (about 6 ounces of baking soda in 2 gallons of water).
Other studies done in the 1940s found that some uranium compounds could be absorbed through the skin (of lab animals) [34]. More recent studies done in the late 1980s and 1990s found that even relatively insoluble uranium oxide could damage skin cells when applied daily for a month, resulting in the skin becoming thinner and more permeable [35]. If the uranium oxides dissolve, they are more easily absorbed [36, 37], and certain oils and lotions may cause the uranium to be absorbed through the skin more quickly. Some uranium oxides can dissolve in sweat, making it easier for them to be absorbed. If clothing is highly contaminated with DU dust, and if it remains in contact with sweaty skin for long periods of time, there could be significant amounts dissolved and absorbed through the skin. Therefore, it is important to get the clothing clean and free of uranium contamination.

DEPLETED URANIUM DECONTAMINATION
Uranium exposure assessment: It is known already for several years the “Gulfwar syndrome” and more recently the “Balkan syndrome” are caused by the use of several toxic agents.
These toxic substances are mainly administered by medical personnel in the form of vaccines mixed with mercury, drugs and sprays against nerve gas en several kinds of parasites. It is doubtful these medics achieve this wide range of protection. The immune system is forced to response to too many vaccines and drugs and ends up in a mess. Of course this is known to the medical staff so the soldiers are used as guinea pigs in a macabre experiment.
The main toxin is administered by the military itself to its own personnel: depleted uranium dust. This substance radiates the body from the inside. The local peoples are even more the victims of this dust: they have to live in a contaminated neighborhood. Dr Len Dietz has calculated the amount of alpha radiation from one tiny dust particle which can be inhaled easily deep in the lung and can stay there for several years. Only that one small particle with a diameter of 2.5 micron of this highly concentrated metal oxide generates an alpha radiation of 1000 times the ICRP limits (170 REM/Y) locally in the lung tissue. (ICRP = International Commission for Radiological Protection)
The measurements of the Canadian chemist Dr. Hari Sharma tell us: the half-life of DU in the human body is more than 9 years because in the urine of British Gulf-war vets the amount of uranium is 100 times the average concentration. This is caused by the inhaled DU particles trapped in bone-, lung- brain- and lymph tissue. These DU particles in the lung, lymph nodes, bone and brain release by ongoing corrosion smaller uranium particles which can be measured in the urine and stool. These uranium particles are still billions of uranium atoms tied together. These alpha radiating particles can travel through the whole body and trap in an organ or a particular tissue.
Those particles are not found in nature: they are man-made. 24 hours a day these particles release alpha particles which damage the nucleus of the neighboring cells. Uranium is stored in practically every tissue or organ in the human body. After ingesting or inhaling depleted uranium people are slowly getting sick by the radiation. The body tries to get rid of this heavy metal by detoxifying actions of the liver, Most uranium is excreted in the gut, but is re-uptaken again. Some uranium leaves the body via the urine and can be measured by isotopic separation: TI – MS If you are poisoned by DU you should be decontaminate from DU.
You should see uranium as the same as any other heavy metal like lead, mercury, cadmium a.s.o. Only uranium is also radioactive. Uranium and other heavy metals are seen by the body as nutrition. Heavy metals atoms are build in the bone and cells like calcium atoms. Uranium might end up in the bone marrow where it radiates the stem cells, the precursors of the complete range of blood cells: lymphocytes, monocytes, blood platelets, red blood cells. Therefore it is very urgent to force the depleted uranium atoms out of the body. This is a process which will take several years. Most likely it will never reach zero level, but can be kept as low as reasonable achievable (ALARA) by taking vitamins, chelating agents and minerals.

Decontamination from DU It will be translated a.s.a.p.
Here are some substances which are helpful force the uranium out of the cells.

1. Chlorophyll present in young grasses like wheat grass and algae like spirulina. Pure chlorophyll is sold in bottles, tablets and pouwder. Chlorophyll tions by the heavy metal atom exchange it with a magnesium atom. present in ao Joung grasses and algae like chlorella and spirulina (sold in bottles of one pint (Vita products) and powder (spirulina, wheat grass, Green Magma, etc.) every day a shoot or teaspoon in (spring) water) . Bind heavy metals through the exchange of magnesium atom in the chlorophyll molecule at a heavy metal atom.

2. Ginkgo Biloba and/or superoxide dismuthase (sod) Two times daily 50 mg. Does oxidation shows strong antioxidant activity.

3. Whole Foods Multivitamin 1 tablet per day. Includes full range of vitamins and minerals to supplement the deficit caused by chronic heavy metal poisoning. (You can take a multi-vitamin Solgar, Biotics, Orthica some serious brand)

4. Selenium, which is an essential trace element, one of the features is that the methionine and cysteine ​​stimulates binding to an insoluble and mercury as well to separate compound. Essential for heavy metal detoxification for example the brains. Be the first careful with Selenium information see the Selenium (click here) documentation.

5. Acidophilus + Bifidus 500 mg per day. Provides healthy intestinal flora.

6. Zinc. 50 milligrams per day. Mercury displaces the zinc from the body and it is therefore important to provide additional zinc intake. Zinc is important for enzyme production (zinc is also found in most multivitamins, but often at too low a dose). Many important functions in the human body depend on zinc.

7. Magnesium. 500 to 700 milligrams daily (also in small doses in most good multivitamins) If you are not a lot of milk products you should also take extra calcium separately, otherwise you get a distortion of the mg / ca - balance.

8. Alkavital (Orthica) half a teaspoon per day dissolved in water: this makes your body (and saliva) alkaline. You can also use nettle tea to be less acidic it also promotes the U238 easily leaves the body.

9. Calcium ascorbate Vitamin C, ascorbic acid if you have no fillers. 1 g vit. C per day, spread over the day in smaller amounts. Vitamin C ensures secretion of U238 by improving decelstofwisseling.

10. Vitamin B6. 50 to 200 milligrams daily.
(Found in most multivitamins)

11. Vitamin B5. 100 to 400 milligrams daily. (Found in some multis)

12. Vitamin E. 100 to 400 IU daily. (Found in most multivitamins)

13. A half liter of water per day for additional cleansing allowing the kidneys to perform even better. Occasionally one week only distilled water to drink,as well.

14. Other good products are: Coriander (Eng: Cilantro), garlic preparations including Bärlauch, chlorella (algae), activated carbon is Norit etc. The best first half year with chlorella, Bärlauch and or garlic to detoxify and after that half year Coriander adding to the brain to detoxify.

EDTA, DMPS and DMSA are the FAST detoxifiers. There is a range of adverse effects if it is not taken properly. The best method is to take a small amount (100 mg) orally. The danger is kidney poisoning because too much heavy metal ions are passing by.
Test parameters to test before/after DMPS for side-effects :
1.Creatinine Clearance, urine albumin and protein levels
2.Urine and blood amylase, protease and lipase, fecal fats
3.Gastroscopy
4.Liver function/glutathione/sulfation
5.Neutrophil count ( decreases massively )
6.T4/T8-count and ratio, CD26/Ta1 autoreactivity panel
7.C3/C4-counts
8.Immunoglobulin levels
9.Autoimmune neural myelin sheath antimyelin IgM
10.AntiThyroid ab’s
11.AntiLiver ab’s
12.antiKidney ab’s ( brush membrane, tubular … )
13.magnesium, zinc, chromium levels
14.Nerve Conduction studies
15.Balance test etc etc etc. That is just a little starter what can go wrong with DMPS and what to monitor at least.
IMPO, DMPS should never be the first choice of chelation, and even less so as an IV. Orally in small doses like 100 mg max I have told that I might accept it, keeping the backfire risks down. IV DMPS has so sad side-effect profile and in any case, it is just plain playing with fire, when most of the physicians administering it STILL DO NOT DO THEIR homework well enough.
All I can say is that I hope you belong to the lucky 80 % that do not get damaged bad ( those with good sulfoxidation, strong mineral storages, no sulfa-allergies, stomach made of steel, low poisoning levels ( little redistribution effects ) and good B6/folate/b12 status …
Very Good Luck, Ray

This helps remove mercury. Grow and eat a lot coriander.

Here is a recipe for mercury chelation from Kennewick Washington. It appears to work for other metals also. Alpha lipoic acid can also be considered for mercury and other heavy metals chelation.
This is from an article found in the newsletter “Alternative” dated June, 1998. A Dr. Yoshiaki Omura discovered almost by accident that the leaves of the coriander plant can accelerate the excretion of mercury, lead and aluminum from the body. He performed a study in which three amalgam fillings were removed from an individual using all the precautions available to prevent absorption of the mercury from the amalgam. Significant amounts were later found in the individual’s lungs, kidneys, endocrine organs, liver and heart. There was no mercury in these tissues prior to the amalgam removal.
Remarkably, without the help of any chelation agents, cilantro was able to remove the mercury in two to three weeks. (Acupunct Electrother Res 96;21(2):133-60)

Recipe for Cilantro Pesto (Make that “Chelation Pesto”)
1 Clove garlic
1/2 cup almonds, cashews, or other nuts
1 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves
2 tablespoons lemon juice
6 tablespoons olive oil

Put the cilantro and olive oil in blender and process until the cilantro is chopped. Add the rest of the ingredients and process to a lumpy paste. (You may need to add a touch of hot water and scrape the sides of the blender.) You can change the consistency by altering the amount of olive oil and lemon juice, but keep the 3:1 ratio of oil to juice. (It freezes well, so you can make several batches at once.

He recommends a couple of teaspoons a day for two to three weeks once or twice a year.

You Can Sweat-Out Accumulated Radiation as Well

As the treatment for removing radiation from buildings is to pressure wash them, the body can wash-away radiation as well, with a little coaxing.

I don't want to repost, so I'll just link to the comment that expands on this: http://www.dailypaul.com/comment/3153391

Foot-dragging in recognizing obvious problems and the resultant delays in preventing exposure and mitigating the effects lies at the door of nuclear power advocates more interested in preserving the status quo than in helping millions of innocent people who are suffering through no fault of their own. - Nesterenko, A. V., Nesterenko, V. B. and Yablokov, Chernobyl: Consequences of the Catastrophe for People and the Environment.

Smoke ascends from the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant's Unit 3 on Monday 14 after a second hydrogen explosion.
We have had conflicting reports from mainstream news sources regarding the nuclear emergency in Fukushima, Japan. Some say that it is not nearly as bad as the Chernobyl catastrophe, others say that it will be much worse than Chernobyl. What are we to make of this? Who can we trust?

With the current state of affairs, I think it is reasonable enough to expect and prepare for the worst, hope for the best and take what comes. It is with this state of mind that I set out to review the available literature about accessible and alternative therapies in case of nuclear disasters as well as data about the Chernobyl catastrophe. What I found was shocking enough but know that there is also well-documented essential knowledge that can protect you and your loved ones

potassium iodide isn't enough

Great thread with great info. Here's additional info covering other ways to detoxify and protect yourself:


RECOMMENDATIONS CONCERNING IODINE:
 
Iodine-131 has a short half-life of 8 days, which means if we are exposed to it we will need to continue therapy for a few months until it completely decays.
 
1)      Be prepared and informed, but don’t panic. Do your best to get accurate information concerning the fallout.  Taking large doses of Potassium Iodide is not a good idea if you have not been exposed to radioactive iodine.

2)      If you have Hashimoto’s Autoimmune Thyroiditis, I DO NOT recommend taking large doses of Iodine as this can exacerbate the autoimmune process. You can probably safely take small amounts of organic iodine in foods such as seaweed.  If you are taking thyroid hormome replacement, there is a good chance you have Hashimoto’s.  Your doctor should have checked you for thyroid antibodies so call their office and ask if you have autoimmune thyroiditis.  If you haven’t had this test, I can order it for you for $28 plus a $10 blood draw fee.

3)      If you do not have Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, then taking small amounts of Potassium Iodide is probably safe and preventive.  Once we know that we are being exposed to radioactive iodine, the large doses are appropriate.

4)      If you develop symptoms of hyperthyroid, then reduce or stop taking the iodine until the symptoms go away.  Once the symptoms are gone you can try resuming the iodine at ½ the previous dose.  Symptoms of hyperthyroid include:  heart palpations, inward trembling, increased resting pulse rate, nervousness, insomnia, night sweats and difficulty gaining weight.

 
OTHER CONSIDERATIONS:
 
Strontium-90 has a half-life of 29.1 years. Because it behaves chemically like calcium, it tends to concentrate in the bones and teeth.  Cesium-137, with a half-life of 30 years, increases risk of cancers.  Besides Iodine-131, these are the other 2 primary radio isotopes to be concerned about now.  They will be with us for a very long time. 
 
Don’t panic about the short term exposure and then ignore your long term accumulation.  The main point is to be taking care of your body’s ability to breakdown and eliminate toxic material all the time.  If we support our natural detoxification pathways we can cope with long term exposure.
 
 
OTHER RECOMMENDATIONS:
 
Our main molecule of detoxification is Glutathione.  This protects us from all kinds of toxins, including radioactive ones.  I am encouraging people not to focus just on the iodine issue but to focus more on increasing Glutathione production and recycling within the body.  This is easy to accomplish and has far reaching and long lasting benefits...

we are the Remnant

agreed. Glutathione levels are SUPER SUPER IMPORTANT...

and where do get higher glutathione levels?

RAW milk!!!
and non denatured whey protein. (basically raw milk whey powder)

thing is you cant just take glutathione supplements. they don't absorb you need cysteine which then is made into it.

here is a link that helps explain this.
http://www.glutathionediseasecure.com/cystine.html

In time glutathione will become a household word. In the future the Glutathione Disease Cure will become an integral part of mainstream medicine. Here you will learn what Glutathione is and the benefits of glutathione to you and your health. The tri-peptide glutathione or GSH is in every cell in our body. What is glutathione you say?

Glutathione (GSH) does over 27 different things for the body. Studies indicate it has a positive benefit for over 68 different diseases or conditions.

If white blood cells were likened to an Army that fights infection inside our body, then glutathione would have to be the Marines. It is the Essential Health A-I-D for the human body.

It is the essential

* Antioxidant cellular defender.
* Immunity boosting protector at the cellular level.
* Detoxifying warrior for each and every cell.

Glutathione provides defense from free radicals, oxidative stress, toxins and disease. You will learn more about these later.

thanks for the additional info

I'm definitely gonna get some.

we are the Remnant

GREAT!! most people overlook the EXTREME VALUE of

Glutathione.
Found this short article about what depletes it....

What Depletes Glutathione?
cigarette smoke, pills

What depletes Glutathione (GSH) levels in our bodies can be put into two categories - internal and external factors.

Internal factors include the increasing need for Glutathione as an important part of various processes in our bodies, such as, food for our immune system, recycling of vitamin C, vitamin E and lipoic acid, repairing our DNA, and protecting our cells from oxidative stress to mention a few.

Many external factors is what depletes Glutathione the most.

A very useful "soap" for cleaning off radioactive fallout is a poison ivy soap known as tecnu. They found out that it also removes the urishoil or poisonous oil in poison ivy and oak. It is available at most pharmacies. It works great on PI as well.

here is a link where you can buy it...

It sounds like a must have soap!

Radiation reaches Alaska?

When you read the headline then the article, the two do not go together. Has the radiation levels in AK already starting increasing?

State: Radiation Levels In AK Elevated But Not Harmful
State health officials say no need for concern of radiation exposure in AK
By Grace Jang

The explosions at the Fukishima Daiichi nuclear power plant have triggered fears across the globe, including Alaska, of radiation exposure.

The state commissioner of health and social services says Alaska could see a “very small increase in radiation levels—well below levels that would be a health concern.”

State officials say there are monitoring radiation levels at stations throughout the state—in Juneau, Anchorage and Fairbanks—through black boxes, which send that information back to state and federal computers.

But state health officials say, the chances of radiation reaching Alaska from Japan are very slim.

“The immediate effects occur within minutes and they typically are nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, general malaise,” said Joe McLaughlin, state epidemiologist for the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services.

Weeks to months later, those symptoms get worse.

“They can also develop skin damage, hair loss, problems with the bone marrow and that can result in infection and ultimately can cause death,” McLaughlin said. “If you're going to die from radiation exposure, that usually occurs within months.”

Thanks for posting this, Jdayh

My daughter sent this information to me, so I need to acknowledge her also.

Some of those links are dead, just disappeared, so I thought that copying the entire file was worthwhile. I hope that we never need it, but it's good to have around with the super moon approaching in just a few days and who knows what after that. For those as paranoid as I am about worse case scenarios, just having access to this information is much better, if it is needed.

Just announced - The US military was told to get no closer that 50 miles to the Fukushima plant.

It is what they are not telling us that makes me worry about this. My family and I have started taking kelp three days ago.

Wow...

lots to read. Will read later...

What about this website?

more fear eh? I spent a year

more fear eh?

I spent a year around DU dust and residue.. ate a bunch of celantro and never looked back.

“One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.” Plato

So you were concerned enough to eat a bunch of cilantro

Or are you just talking about some chips and salsa with your beers?

NO, its not fear.

Its information. If someone wants to be prepared . Here is how to do it. If they don't think they need to.. then they wont. If this is needed... don't you think it would be wise to know how to do it?

That is all this is about . How to detox any/all radiation. That's it. Seems like a good idea to know..especially with the "earthquake/nuclear" events as of late.
