Foods That Can Protect You Against Radiation
I will give you a first protection against environmental radiation.
Radioactive fallout is everywhere; therefore, the danger of being exposed to radioactive minerals is constant. Daily detoxification and mineral saturation is the first defense.
The first defense against environmental toxins, such as radiation, is saturating your body with minerals.
Once cellular mineral saturation occurs, there’s less possibility for the radioactive minerals to be absorbed into your body’s organs.
The best way to ensure mineral saturation is by following a daily detoxification routine, in which you ingest live fruits, as well as freshly prepared fruit and vegetable juices during the day.
Besides supplying the body with live minerals, fruits and veggie juices are high in antioxidant nutrients and live enzymes, which defend the body against the free radicals created by radiation exposure.
Moreover, alkalizing the system will strengthen your body’s resistance to radioactive stressors.
There are also certain foods and herbs that have within them special properties to protect the body from environmental radiation. These foods and herbs contain certain nutrient and mineral complexes that create a natural process of chelation.
Chelation occurs when a nutrient pulls out, or neutralizes, toxins and radioactive materials that penetrate the system.
Antiradiation Foods, Nutrients, and Herbs Foods and Nutrients
- Sea Vegetables – kelp, arame, kombu, and hijiki are all high in sodium alginate, which is the best chelator for pulling radioactive toxins from the body.
- Miso – is high in minerals and is a strong alkalizer, which is believed to protect the body against radioactive minerals.
- Beet Juice – is known as a liver and blood detoxifier. Beets are high in organic iron, which protects the body from plutonium and radioactive iron.
Super Foods: Bee Pollen, Blue-Green Algae, High-Sulfur Vegetables
- Bee Pollen – is high in minerals, vitamins, and live enzymes. Pound-for-pound, bee pollen is the highest protein food, higher than meat or dairy.
Clinically, bee pollen has been shown to significantly reduce the side effects of chemotherapy. Bee pollen is also high in lecithin, which helps protect the nervous system. It’s also high in nucleic acids, which protects the system from radioactive exposure.
- Blue-Green Algae – the high content of minerals, chlorophyll, and antioxidant nutrients in blue-green algae make this super food a great antiradiation supplement.
- High-Sulfur Protein-Containing Vegetables – broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, Brussels sprouts, garlic, and onions are all high in the antioxidant sulfur-containing protein cysteine. Cysteine neutralizes free radicals, and protects against x-rays as well as radioactive minerals such as cobalt and sulfur.
Fiber: Vegetable, Grain, Legume, Seed and Fruit Fibers
Fiber helps to chelate radioactive material out of the system, including fibers containing phytates (which are found in grains and legumes), and pectin, a soluble fiber found in fruits and seeds.
Lignans, which are in flaxseeds, have also been shown to possess great chelation properties.
High-Chlorophyll Foods: Leafy, Green Vegetables, Spirulina, Chlorella, Grass Sprouts, Parsley
Consuming high-chlorophyll foods, such as parsley, leafy greens, spirulina, and chlorella helps to significantly reduce the effects of radiation. The high-enzyme content of grass sprouts aids in detoxifying and neutralizing free radicals.
Herbs: Siberian Ginseng, Astragalus, Echinacea
- Siberian Ginseng – is an adaptogenic herb. It’s been found to rebalance and heal the body from physiological, emotional, and environmental stresses.
Siberian Ginseng is one of the best herbs to combat the dangers associated with environmental radiation, x-ray exposure, and chemotherapy.
- Astragalus – boosts the immune system and thus helps to defend the system against radiation.
- Echinacea/Goldenseal – Echinacea is an immune booster and blood purifier. Goldenseal, besides being a potent immune booster, is believed to carry some anticancerous properties.
Combining echinacea with goldenseal, in my opinion, works better than echinacea alone, particularly when you’re sick. Pregnant or lactating women should consult their physician before taking them.
The best way to take these herbs is to cycle their supplementation on a few weeks-on, few weeks-off basis.
Some of the foods listed, such as fruits, freshly prepared fruit and veggie juices, bee pollen, and blue-green algae are best taken during the day on an empty stomach.
Doing so will accelerate the detoxification effect, and assimilation of their essential nutrients. All the other foods and herbs listed can be ingested at any time of the day, or with your evening meal.
