Coping with Radiation Exposure
Radiation and Cesium

The type of radiation that escapes into the environment after an explosion in a nuclear power plant is based on cesium. The body thinks cesium is calcium and will use it anywhere there is a calcium defiiciency. In a way, this probably makes cesium radiation safer in western/industrial countries because we are rarely deficient in calcium. Often, in fact, we have excess amounts of calcium in our diets, which can induce a deficiency in magnesium, so I do not recommend taking plain calcium supplements. Instead, take some extra calcium in a natural source of mixed minerals, like clay, dirt or volcanic dust. Make bone broth based soups.

If radiation is arriving in your area, you should avoid going out if at all possible. Wear a face mask if you do. If possible, keep the face mask damp, as this will reduce radioactiving getting into your breathing.

The Russians gave out chocolate bars with clay mixed in them to people after Chernobyl. Clay is used as part of the containment wall when nuclear waste has to be buried. Green clay will contain some iodine from the seaweed that makes it green. Spirulina was given in the amount of 5 grams a day for 45 days. Institute of Radiation Medicine in Minsk claims this protocol enhanced immune systems, raised T-cell counts and reduced radioactivity.

Foods supplements recommended for radiation exposure:

Take extra iodine -- you can put  a splash of Lugol's solution on some area of skin and let it sink in on its own. When the stain goes away, add some more. There is some dispute over whether or not the Japanese radiation is based on iodine or not. Probably it is not, but you still need iodine. Your skin will let you know how much you need. If the iodine spread on your skin does not sink in after a day, you are not deficient.

Potassium -- is named after "pot ash", which is the ash left over after burning any kind of plant matter. If you have a fire that you know the wood that goes into it, take out the ash when it gets cool and find some way to consume it (see minerals).
You can take tablets of potassium iodide to get both potassium and iodine (Potassium plus Iodine).

Any kind of seaweed is a good source of balanced iodine with its natural companion minerals. Add kelp to any food you can.

Boron, the main component of Borax (laundry booster), is considered a "neutron absorber". Its use is recommended in damaged nuclear reactors to prevent runaway nuclear fission. The FDA says that consuming up to 1/4 teaspoon a day of Borax is safe. Do NOT use boric acid as a substitute.

Some other practices recommended for dealing with or preventing absorption of radiation:

Eat plenty of naturally fermented foods with lots of soil based probiotics.
Edible clay or other mixed minerals source.
Take gingko biloba.
Drink lots of water
Move in rhythmic motion (like swinging or rocking in a rocking chair) to keep fluids moving around (think of a washing machine).
Eat miso and/or miso soup. This has been reported as one of the main factors sited as to who did or did not succumb to radiation sickness among the medical personnel treating victims of the atomic bombing of Japanese cites during WW2. Besides miso, the diet used by Dr. Akizuki to treat staff and patients also included brown rice, soy sauce. seaweed and  sea salt, and eliminating sugar and refined carbohydrates.
Eat green vegetables, especially mustard greens, broccoli, cabbage and other crucifers.
