And What We Can Do to Prevent Radioactive Uptake
Conflicting reports exist on weather the increased radiation levels in the ocean have any significant implications for health. Unfortunately, there is really no “safe-limit.” The human body is extremely sensitive to these particles. From what I have seen and tested in my clinic, the increase in radiation is affecting many of us to some degree. While this is highly disconcerting, the more awareness we have of it, the more we can do to protect our bodies. First let’s look at the symptoms one may experience.
- thyroid disorders
- frequent and prolonged colds or other infections
- headaches and nausea
- sudden irregularities in menstrual cycles
- unusual skin issues
- diarrhea, or constipation, poor appetite
- unexplainable nerve pain, back pain, joint pain
- fatigue and malaise
- increased hair loss or graying
- dizziness and tinnitus
- Reducing sugar, and simple carbohydrates, while increasing green vegetables and protein are effective for raising the level of adrenal function. The adrenal glands’ hormones slows the production of free radicals, and inhibits the growth of cancers and carcinogens.
- Include more good fats in your diet such as avocado, coconut , and olive oil to keep your cell membranes and immune system strong.
- Eat more fermented foods such as miso and sauerkraut, as these have the ability to neutralize the effect of environmental pollution including radiation.
- Seaweeds (not from the Pacific) absorb radiation away from the body. Mushrooms such as shiitake, reishi, and maitake also protect the body from the carcinogenic effects of radiation.
- In terms of general supplementation, add in chlorophyll containing powders such as chlorella, spirulina (not from the Pacific), etc. Supplementing with vitamin D has also been shown to have protective effects.
