Alicia Bayer over at Examiner has developed a quick list of 19 foods to detox radiation, including brown rice, kelp and miso. But, she notes, “there are plenty of foods that naturally protect our bodies from radiation.” Read the full list over at Examiner.
Food Freedom News has been collecting radiation detox foods, supplements and practices since the Fukushima disaster. So, drawing on past articles, we’ve come up with the following summaries:
In addition to “organic apples with the skin on (and the wax rubbed off), or applesauce,” Dr. Ilya Sandra Perlingieri suggests we also “drink unfiltered, organic apple juice with Bragg’s Aminos (1 teaspoon per 8 oz for adults). Apple pectin is a known aid (and helped the children at Chernobyl); and it actually binds with various radioactive particles.”
Elderberry Syrup, avocados and lemons, and the following supplements in your radiation detox program are recommended:
Vitamin C daily with bioflavinoids [this helps with C absorption] and rutin: Adults: 2-3 grams daily.
Vitamin B-Complex: For adults, 50 mg (max) of each of the major B vitamins (B-1, B-2, B-5 [called the “anti-stress” vitamin], B-6, and B-12).
Vitamin A with mixed carotenoids, Vitamin E and Coenzyme Q-10. (no dosages given).
Vitamin D-3: 1,000 mg of Vitamin D-3 daily.
Dr Perlingieri also recommends lemon-honey-fresh ginger-root tea, organic bee pollen and buckwheat flour.
Melissa Patterson, ND, has posted a more extensive list of radiation resistance foods which includes the above, and provides dosages (for adults).
“Dr. Segura recently posted an important page on the Net that introduces DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide). We need extra sulfur in our systems to help protect and treat radiation contamination. Segura published that,
‘Sulfur has a long history of use as an antidote for acute exposure to radioactive material. DMSO is the classical sulfur compound. Remember that boosting your body’s detox capabilities and overall antioxidant levels is a key to survive in these stressful times.’
“DMSO is also an effective painkiller. It blocks nerve conduction fibers that produce pain. It reduces inflammation and swelling by reducing inflammatory chemicals. It improves blood supply to an area of injury by dilating blood vessels and increasing delivery of oxygen and by reducing blood platelet stickiness. It stimulates healing, which is a key to its usefulness in any condition. It is among the most potent free radical scavengers known to man, if not the most potent one.
“DMSO is useful as a pain reliever, in burns, acne, arthritis, mental retardation, strokes, amyloidosis, head injury, scleroderma; it soothes toothaches, eases headaches, hemorrhoids, muscle strains; it prevents paralysis from spinal chord injuries; it softens scar tissues. In fact, it is useful in well over 300 ailments and is safe to use.
“There are four ways to get sulfur into our systems that I know of. There is DMSO, then sodium Thiosulfate, which I have recommended to people for years to put in their therapeutic baths and can be taken orally as well; there is also Miracle Mineral Supplement (MSM) and of course Epsom salts.”
Then, consider your gardens and dairy. Hawaiian farmers Britton and Shekinah remind us that:
“[M]ilk represents the overall condition of the entire food chain, since cows consume grass and are exposed to the same elements as crops. So, when milk tests positive for radiation, it indicates the entire food chain is contaminated since cows eat grass. When grass is contaminated, everything grown in the same soil is contaminated.”
Their solution? Boron.
“Boron can be safely ingested at a dosage of 4-10 mg per day. Borax, 11% boron, can be used as a tea and sprayed on your gardens, or land surrounding your home, at a rate of 10# of Borax per acre, 1#, if using elemental boron. Borax can also be ingested at 1/8 tsp to 1 litre water for women, ¼ tsp to 1 litre water for men.
“Fortunately, red wine and coffee are significant sources of boron, as well as non-citrus fruits, red grapes, plums, pears, apples, avocados, legumes and nuts! Boron is known to be non-carcinogenic, non-mutagenic and has been used internally to protect the astronauts in space as they leave the earth’s protective magnetic field.”
