Maybe we’re just waking up to this. Protect yourselves, quote (updated blog post esp. re: “Zeolites”); "Medical Responses (incl. “Bio-remediation”)
I published blog posts concerning both possible medical and bio-remediation (“bio-medical”?), responses to the Fukushima disaster at the time, much of the content of which is relevant to both the d.u contamination issue and any possible catastrophe involving Ukraine’s nuclear industry (esp. re: the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Station which is the largest in Europe and the 10th largest in the World), quote; "Use Kelp (iodine source and endocrine supporter), and crystal sea-salt in your cooking The book that started it all
Researchers found higher incidence in recovery from radiation exposure in the population of Nagasaki after the bomb, this was attributed to the relatively high level of salt intake and seaweeds in the coastal diet.
Also include foods containing trace elements and minerals (fresh or dried mushrooms are a good source, some like Ganoderma probably have a place in the “radiologists” pharmacy -a “radiologist” in this case being a physician who generally doesn’t, rather than one who generally does-), and ensure your vitamin intake is at least at the level of the R.D.A, “active” cultures and mineral supplements should also be considered.
Aloe Vera is a great de-toxifier, there are others, however, Aloe Vera re-hydrates driving out toxins and replacing them with trace-elements, minerals and vitamins (including -inactive-, B12).
Fresh aloe vera leaf can be purchased on Ebay & tutorials on proper hand-filleting are available on YouTube.
Quote; "With the recent earthquake in Japan, resulting in the instability of several nuclear reactors, many people have been asking what they can do to protect themselves from radiation exposure or poisoning, or what they can do to naturally detoxify their system if they are exposed. The following is a compilation of the research I have been able to find on ways to naturally and safely prevent and/or detoxify your body from radiation exposure/poisoning. I will start out by listing the various protocols that have been shown to be effective, then I will expand on the details.
Diet consisting mainly of brown rice, miso and seaweed
Other additions to the diet
· Spirulina, chlorella and the algaes (kelp, etc.)
· Brassica vegetables and high beta carotene vegetables
· Beans and lentils and other foods high in nucleotide content
· Potassium, magnesium, calcium and mineral rich foods
· cod liver oil and olive oil
· Avoid sugars and sweets and wheat
Clay, Sea salt and Baking Soda Bath
Diet of Brown Rice, Seaweed and Miso
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.(Tatsuichiro Akuziki, M.D. Nagasaki 1945, London Quarter books, 1981).
Seaweeds are very high in mineral content. 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. Zinc inhibits zinc-65 uptake and sulfur is preventative for sulfur-35* (a product of nuclear reactors) incorporation by the body.
Sea vegetables can prevent assimilation of different radionuclitides, heavy metals such as cadmium, and other environmental toxins.
“An experiment conducted by J.F. Stara at the Environmental Protection Agency showed that sodium alginate significantly reduced the amount of radio active strontium in the bones of cats. Stara observed that radio active strontium in the bones is resecreted into the intestines where it is bound by alginate, neutralized then excreted in the stools.”
"There is no family of foods more protective against radiation and environmental pollutants than sea vegetables … sea vegetables can prevent assimilation of different radionuclitides, heavy metals such as cadmium, and other environmental toxins.”*
I will move on to point number two – Other additions to the diet – in my next post.” From Radiation Detoxification Steven Schecter, N.D
Quote; "There are hundreds of types of zeolite, but we are only talking about clinoptilolite-zeolite here, which is the only type of zeolite that is used in supplements. Zeolite is a volcanic mineral and has an array of elements in it because it comes from the core of the Earth. The cage of the zeolite structure is so strong that there is no condition harsh enough in the body to break it down. This means that nothing is leached from the zeolite structure. Since zeolite stays intact, it can then do its job by absorbing positively charged toxins, such as heavy metals and radiation (including lead and aluminum).
Does zeolite absorb or leach heavy metals?
Zeolite absorbs heavy metals. Misinformation about zeolite leaching lead, aluminum, arsenic, and other metals originated many years ago when people learned that the chemical name for clinoptilolite-zeolite is “aluminosilicate.” They automatically assumed “aluminosilicate” meant there was aluminum in zeolite, which could potentially do harm. Over the years, more misinformation about zeolite leaching other metals, such as lead and arsenic, has come about. But none of this is true! Though zeolite is a volcanic mineral and has a variety of elements in it, the structure of the zeolite mineral CANNOT BE BROKEN DOWN IN THE BODY. Thus, nothing in the structure of the zeolite is bioavailable—in other words no aluminum, lead, arsenic, or any other metals are leached from the zeolite structure as it travels through the body. In fact, clinoptilolite-zeolite does the opposite and absorbs dangerous heavy metals from the body’s cells."
Bioremediation is the subtle art of removing toxins from the environment naturally such as by the action of plants and/or fungi.
Dr. Schecter (see post above), is very clear as to the efficacy of utilising seaweeds in order to treat the effects of radiation exposure to the person, however, seaweeds (and algae), are also excellent “bio-medicine” as some have the ability to “bio-accumulate” (capture and store), toxins (nobody seems to know how many do or what the substances those that do bioaccumulate accumulate may be), as do a considerable number of fungi (ditto re: the research into same), unfortunately such biomedicine has, historically, been dreadfully under researched and underfunded, quote; “Elsewhere on this blog you will find mention of mushrooms and fungi for bio-remediation,“Mycology and Bio-Remediation” Go to: "Arafel": Mycology and Bio-Remediation and some of the organisations and communities doing research into the mycological bio-accumulation of environmental toxins and their subsequent disposal or recovery, however, what has not so far been so fashionable is the concomitant science of the monitoring of environmental toxins (“Enviro-Toxins” Dr.Vyvyan Howard). There is surely a lot of wasted funding going to many bio-chemistry depts. in science faculties throughout the world for it is not rocket science and I would have thought that the identification and categorisation of all the moulds, fungi and mushrooms by environment and proclivity (re: toxin accumulation), would have been a perfect excuse for a good old financial (and otherwise), knees-up (but they’re probably channelling all the funding into seeing how mycology can inform robotics), after all “cleaning-up” don’t pay (especially when one doesn’t admit to one’s problems in the first place)! Mushrooms offer more elegant solutions surely? Why bother with expensive equipment when you can whip a few specimens into the lab and know immediately how much is where following some simple analysis (and being informed as to what you’re looking for before you see it!)?” Go to: "Arafel": The Undiscovered Science of Myco-Magic #Mycology #Bioremediation
It seems possible to me that Fukushima will become a Japanese “bearded lady”, in that it will prove necessary to bioremediate the coastline surrounding the site by using seaweeds to capture radioactive discharges into the ocean from the stricken reactor .
