Due to the large amount of emails and questions I have received in the past week I have compiled this list of recommendations after researching various sources. I have done my best to include local sources. This is part 1 of a 2 part compilaton. Part 2 in subsequent posting includes detox baths and iodine sources.
ps. Can't seem to get this posting to format in the way I typed it w correct spacing, etc., sorry 'bout that! Please email me if you would like to read or print it w the correct formatting!
I recommend developing and following some variation of this protocol for a very long time. * Pease see note regarding The Petkau Effect study on low level radiation risks at end of compilation.
Mother Earth never ceases to amaze me, read about radiation-eating fungi: http://www.cosmosmagazine.com/features/print/2095/silent-spring?page=0%2C0 and http://www.innovations-report.com/html/reports/studies/report-84775.html
Radiation Protection and Detox Solutions
Compiled by Melissa Weaver, Environmental Health Educator/Consultant (see references below).
Avoid: Sugar, sweets, processed foods, white flour, wheat, processed or allergenic type foods.
Miso: A 1990
study concluded that people who eat miso soup regularly may be up to five times more resistant to radiation poisoning. The Japanese did research in 1972 identifying an active ingredient in miso called zybicolin, which acts as a binding agent detoxify and eliminate radioactive elements (such as strontium) and other pollutants from the body. Hiroshima University
Seaweed: According to several scientific studies, seaweed is able to neutralize radioactive isotopes in the human body. Kelp and Kombu are the most medicinal. Canadian researchers at McGill University of Montreal, in 1968 found that sea vegetables contained a polysaccharide called sodium alginate, which selectively bound radioactive strontium and eliminated it from the body. The Russians have isolated a polysaccharide U-Fucoidan from their own kelp, which has been found to be another radioactive detoxifier. Add seaweed to meals, cook w beans, grains and stews or chew on seaweed raw or roasted for crunchier texture. For local seaweed at a good price call Julie Drucker of Yemaya Seaweeds at 468-8493 for 1 oz, 1/2 lb. or 1 lb orders.
Miso Seaweed Soup w orange veggies: Pumpkin, carrot, parsnip, rutabaga, burdock rt, ginger and daikon. http://www.radiationdetox.com/depleted-uranium.htm states: Tatsuichiro Akizuki, M.D. was Director of the Department of Internal Medicine at St. Francis's Hospital in
at the time of the atomic bombing. He fed his staff and patients a strict diet of brown rice, miso and tamari soy soup, wakame, kombu and other seaweed, Nagasaki 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. Hokkaido
Himalayan, Celtic or Sea Salt for maximum absorption of vital minerals which may help prevent isotopes from lodging in tissue and bone. Himalayan Salt is available from Enhanced Health Systems at 707-823-3235, or email@example.com $22/ 1 kg or 2.2 lb
Cilantro is known to bind and chelate heavy metals from body, but you need to eat or juice a
LOTof it over many days to be effective.
Brassicas (Broccoli family), Orange and Dark Green Foods: (sweet potatoes, winter squash, pumpkin, beets, carrots, kale, collards, chard, and spinach)
Lentils and other legumes: According to Susan Weed and other sources dried beans, especially lentils can reverse DNA damage done by radiation.
Pectin rich fruits:Pectin acts as a natural chelating agent and has the ability to bind radioactive residues and remove them from the body. Apples, especially the skin, are high in pectin, as are guavas, plums, gooseberries, oranges and other citrus fruits - organic fruit is recommended. http://www.livestrong.com/article/334359-foods-that-cleanse-radiation-from-body/
Black and Green Teas: From Susan Weed's article: In Fighting Radiation and Chemical Pollutants with Foods, Herbs, and Vitamins (Vitality, 1991), Steven Schecter tells us that both black and green tea showed "radioprotective effects" whether taken before or after exposure to radiation. Among other modes of operation, tea catechins absorb radioactive isotopes and remove them from the body before they do damage. The action is similar he says, to that of sodium alginate (the "active ingredient" in kelp seaweed).
Reishii is recommended in most of the literature I have researched and reduces damage from radiation. Be careful ingesting wild mushrooms or oversea sources - mushrooms tend to absorb toxins, heavy metals and radioactive isotopes from polluted air.
Agaricus blazei is probably the most potent/powerful mushroom extract on the planet - it is anti-mutagenic and known to offset effects of radiation therapy and short wave UV as well as a host of other conditions. Agaricus blazei limits damage from Radiation and Mutagens:
Waiora's AgariGold extract is 100% organic, cultivated in caves using air purifiers, grown on organic medium-important factor to note since mushrooms absorb toxins/heavy metals from polluted air. 25 years of prior research shows study show 90% cancer cure and 99% cancer prevention. Anti-cancer, anti-tumor, anti-mutagenic, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, 52 enzymes, 18 amino acids, 6 beneficial steroids, naturally preserved w Sasa bamboo,a very potent antioxidant and the only plant species known to have survived Hiroshima. A. blazeii mushroom also contains v. high amts of immune supporting polysacharide Beta glucan and is responsible for assisting our body to produce high amts of macrophages and other crucial immune protectors. Agarigold can be ordered from Enhanced Health Systems at 707-823-3235, or firstname.lastname@example.org. Bulk wholesale orders are more cost effective.

HERBS: (Rosemary’s Garden in
Green and Black Teas: Tea catechins absorb radioactive isotopes and remove them from the body before they do damage. These anti-radiation effects were observed in several Japanese studies, and studies from
also suggest that the ingredients in tea are radioactive antagonists. China
Burdock root removes radioactive isotopes from the body. A dose is 1-4 ounces/300-120 grams of cooked fresh root, up to a pint of infusion daily, or several large spoonfuls of vinegar (but only if made with fresh roots). (taken from Susan Weed's article)
Nettles, Catnip, Ginkgo High in Selenium, aid and assist with radiation detoxification.
Eluethro (Siberian Gingseng) has a radioprotective effect and has been shown to reduce side effects of radiation. It was distributed by the Soviet Union to those exposed to
radiation and is commonly used to help cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy. Chernobyl
Ginseng: Susan Weed: In clinical trial with humans, those who took ginseng extract (Panax quinquefolium) 30 days following exposure to radiation showed hastened recovery from injuries to their bone marrow, organs, skin, and blood cells according to Paul Bergner in The Healing Power of Ginseng, The Enlightened Person's Guide, Prima, 1996.
Astragalus, Red Clover, (both legumes) all other blood purifiers.
Ashwaganda helps stabilize and regulate thyroid gland.
Chaparral: To be used for short term use after exposure, for up to a week. Many are sensitive to Chaparral, so please take caution.
St. Joan’s/John's wort oil protects helps protect skin from radiation damage. Kate Weaver is a local source at 874-1434.
Bentonite Clay for internal use to bind and remove radioactive metals..
SUPERFOODS AND SUPPLEMENTS:
Algaes: AFA Blue Green,Spirulina, Chlorella, Dunaliella. Resistance of algaes to radiation: http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v185/n4714/abs/185706a0.html
AFA Blue Green Algae offers considerable nutritional value and immune support compared to Spirulina and Chlorella - both used successfully w children after
in 1986. Check out comparison chart of 3 algaes at. http://www.ancientsuninc.com/AFA%20_Comparison_Chart.pdf AFA is high in B12 and EFA's w/a glycogen cell wall allowing nutrients to enter the bloodstream in minutes. Ancient Sun's Crystal Manna AFA, average cost is $20/month, (less for bulk orders), is high quality- processed via window refractance/low-heat evaporation.

Natural Cellular Defense Liquid Zeolite:
Removes radioactive substances, heavy metals, toxins, viruses, etc and regulates pH. http://www.liquidzeolite.org/summary.html NCD Zeolite is the subject of more than 14
clinical studies. Zeolite's binding power was proven during the
disaster, when tons of it were used to remove radioactive cesium and strontium-90 before they contaminated local water systems http://www.liquidzeolite.org/index/search.php?zoom_query=radioactive Chernobyl
At the nuclear disaster in Chernobyl:
- Over 500,000 tons of zeolite was dropped into the reactor to absorb radioactive metal
- Cattle were fed zeolite to help keep radioactive ions out of milk
- Zeolite "cookies" were baked for children to help reduce radioactive absorption
- When soil contaminated with Cesium and Strontium was treated with zeolite, plants growing in that soil resulted in NO uptake of Cesium or Strontium
- These facts and more were presented in a paper at the 1998 National Academy of Sciences titled "La Roca Magica: Uses of Natural Zeolites in Agriculture and Industry." http://www.pnas.org/content/96/7/3463.full?sid=3bcf8a83-3968-4c2a-a832-f4f6fdd75de2. to see the full paper, and go to the section titled Nuclear Waste and Fallout. The Clinoptilolite zeolite referenced in the paper is raw zeolite, which means it was not "cleaned" of toxins present in its cage-like structures, reducing absorption capacity. The Clinoptilolite zeolite in NCD zeolite has undergone a proprietary process, micronized to get into the bloodstream, and activated so that its cages are "cleaned" for maximum absorption of heavy metals and toxins.Three published studies right after
measured radioactive strontium and cesium excretion in goats and sheep that were fed this particular zeolite – clinoptilolite. Their excretion increased anywhere from 15 to 20 times over normal excretion just by adding clinoptilolite to their diet. Since that time a 2004 study on clinoptilolite zeolite and uranium was found http://www.liquidzeolite.org/docs/uranium%20and%20clinoptilolite.pdf#search="depleted uranium" Chernobyl

Selenium: Protects DNA from radiation damage and helps prevent damage to the skin surface. Best sources are burdock, nettles, kelp, catnip, ginseng, Siberian ginseng, and astragalus. Shellfish, green and black teas, and garlic contain significant amounts of selenium, as do many mushrooms.
Innate Response formulas sells a good 100% whole food, organic source of Selenium, call Roberta Williams to order: 707-525-1121 or Roberta@anr2.com
Glutamine/Glutathione: Nutritionally supports muscle repair, intestinal health, immune and brain function. Well Wisdom's GlutImmune has highest absorption and stability. Delivers up to 10 times more glutamine to the bloodstream than L-gutamine. Glutamine functions as an important biosynthesis precursor in intestinal cells by supporting the synthesis of Glutathione. http://www.wellwisdom.com/a_glutimmune.php Available from Enhanced Health Systems at 707-823-3235, or email@example.com
MSM provides a source of dietary sulfur, and protects against radioactive sulfur. Good for skin and joint pains.
Homeopathic remedies can be taken before and after exposure to radiation: Plumbum (lead) is said to help those who feel overwhelmed and in need of protection. Belladonna is used to prevent and relieve radiation burns and pains - even long after the immediate exposure. Elizabeth Lakin is a wonderful local classical homepath: 707-583-2370 or firstname.lastname@example.org
*NOTE: The Petkau Effect: A long term exposure of extremely low radiation was found to be 100 BILLION times MORE lethal than a short term exposure to exceedingly high level radiation. To read more go to http://doctorapsley.com/RadiationTherapy.aspx

Other useful recommendations:
- Mediation, Visualization, Gifts and Prayers for
- Stay connected to Source in whatever way works for you.
- Relax, give thanks, bless your drinking water w light, read http://tomkenyon.com/medicines-of-light, trust all is in perfect order. (We are programmed to heal, but difficult to do so in a state of fear.)
- Stay connected to family, friends, community for support, upliftment and staying informed.
- Prudent avoidance of EMF’s and RF microwaves – stay away from magnetic fields, wireless devices
- Use an AirSource or a few good hepa filters – AirSource removes 98% of airborne particulate in up to 3000 sq ft. (Most other types of air purifiers do not remove particulate)
- If situation becomes critical, stay indoors; wear protective clothing and masks; cover vegetable and herb gardens (use agriculture grade zeolite to detox soil).
