For all its promise, nuclear radiation is a relatively new and dangerous tool; and nuclear radiation exposure can cause radiation sickness from an acute exposure. Symptoms of radiation poisoning include nausea, hair loss, and vomiting. In the long run, radiation side effects can include the above but also various cancers.
If you are concerned that you have suffered or will suffer a radiation exposure, there are precautions you can take. Potassium iodide or KI pills (in a 130 mg dose) are the typical prophylactic treatment for radiation poisoning, if you know you are about to suffer a radiation exposure. You may more easily find or have heard of SSKI (a saturated solution of potassium iodide), two drops of which represent an effective treatment for adults (adolescents 3-18 years of age should receive a half-dose of any iodine treatment). If you live in the vicinity of a nuclear power plant, you can very likely get free KI pills to keep as First Aid for your family in the event of a radiation release.
KI only protects against a specific type of exposure, but it is proven very effective in preventing thyroid cancer. The iodine in the pill or solution prevents the body from taking up the radioactive iodine released in a nuclear accident. This threat is the most critical in a nuclear emergency, and so KI or SSKI treatment is highly recommended before and during exposure. The idea is that the KI fulfills the body's/thyroid's daily requirement for iodine, so that there is no space left to take up the poisonous radioiodine. This means you should take the recommended KI or SSKI dosage at least several hours before the predicted arrival of any radiation release and continue taking maintenance doses until the danger has passed.

06/09/2013: Coregon from San Diego, Ca replies: "I know this is an old post I am responding to, but thought maybe someone else had the same issue, so posting this anyway.
Adele Davis, nutrition expert from the 1960's had a remedy for hair growth. I don't have the book handy, but I remember the cure was vodka, white iodine and cayenne mixture massaged into scalp. I think it was like 1/4 cup vodka, with 5 drops of decolorized (white) iodine (regular iodine will temporarily stain your scalp and hair! ) and 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper, done several times per week. I'm sorry I don't remember exact amounts, but it does make sense that iodine would help since radiation causes a deficiency of iodine. Look for a used copy of Adele's book "Let's Get Well" on Amazon for the recipe maybe? It's a very old book from the 1960's, but great info in it.. One of my favs still!
Another remedy to stimulate hair growth is one I do daily. I pour my sulfate free shampoo into my hand and mix 6 drops of essential rosemary oil with it, then vigorously scrub my scalp and leave it on scalp a few minutes while I finish shower, then rinse. Avoid eyes as it may temporarily burn! "
03/16/2011: Vidya from Toronto, Canada: "The homeopathic remedy 'X-ray' (made from X-ray radiation) is used to counteract the effects of radiation exposure (from diagnostic x-rays, radiation treatment for cancer, etc. ). The potency is not necessarily very important here; the 'standard' 30C is usually the easiest to find. Same goes for the dosage schedule -- a few drops mixed into water, taken as soon after exposure occurs, should be sufficient; some people prefer a single dose, others favour multiple doses, depending on the homeopathic philosophy to which they subscribe. This remedy should be available from most large homeopathic suppliers."Replies

"Normal" radiation means the cumulative effect of radiation from cell phones, wireless routers, microwave ovens, cell phone antennas, "smart meters" from utility companies, and so on. The containers of the Xray herb tablets should be held for 10 minutes at least 2 to 3 times per week. My chiropractor mentioned that it's particularly important for people with amalgam dental fillings to have the radiation neutralized.
Being on the west coast of the US, he has said that this method is also very likely to help regarding the radiation coming from Japan"

I prefer to keep an open mind which often helps me to keep track of the lies we are told. The time I thought all facts presented to us were true is long gone, unfortunately. I would prefer to live in a different world but there you go, there isn't any!
More and more I start to think about things that happened and realising that reality is probably not at all what we think. There is a real world and a world that is created in our minds and they are not at all similar just if we knew the whole truth we might start to rebel!

No, "silly" judgement from here.. :) I like to keep an open mind as well, though believe that we are allowed to be skeptical of information coming our way... Some things are impossible to prove and so we must allow personal reason to make our conclusions. Jac presented 3 videos, the 2nd, with Helen Caldicott, I did find credible.. The other two I will need a lot more sound information than a person stating they are a "scientist"... For me to take it as fact. I did dismiss it based on my own logic & there was no reasons put forth as to the "why" or what advantage this would be to the aggressors. I realize the world isn't what it seems and can sight some absolute references of how the public is manipulated...
But on the whole I feel a good dose of positive skepticism is healthy. In pertaining to this site the use of the word "cure" can be tossed about quite irresponsibly where a little more caution would prove prudent. Still, I am open, & willing to update my opinion, just give me the info.. and in many cases the truth lies somewhere in the middle."

What works on one person may not work on another being that we all live different lives, we eat different foods, we think differently etc. I am a great believer in all that has taken place in this forum so therefore every thing I have tried has worked 100% for me and my pets.

05/09/2011: Rob from New York, Ny replies: "I'll take from these few responses a need to be more specific in future posts. It may have seemed insensitve in my choosing to laugh at the stated Fact that the Japan earthquake was a military strike... But in defense of laughter, I would argue that it is a healthy choice. Before someone wants me to accept yet another dark truth about humanity where it could possibly cause more harm to my health, they will need to back up their hunches and notions with solid evidence... A good healthy laugh doesn't mean one is forever close to the facts. What does anger me is that these people are stating as fact without facts & what should be theory.
With my reference to cures... For instance... Bill Munro from Michigan writes: "I am convinced that my hydrogen peroxide inhalation remedy will cure HIV and AIDS."...
...based on what is he convinced? a hunch, a notion, did he have a scientific trial, perhaps because it has helped with other viruses he draws this conlusion, but does he know of anyone who has been cured of hiv with this?... This is after someone with HIV stated that he tried it and his T-cell count fell dramatically.... But according to some he probably didn't believe enough... And now I should leave this board for questioning such a response... Rubbish.. Would you say to the person going blind after chosing placebo over penicillin for Syphillis they just didn't believe enough... or someone who died of cancer after trying Essiac tea, just didn't believe enough...?????!
To be in accord, I agree that there is much to gain from this site. The act of stating I tried a remedy and this or that was the result is valuable. There is nothing wrong with a questioning approach. One should take into account the placebo effect as well the decline effect... Many posts are usually within a day or two after trying the remedy with no follow up... Would this person still report the same effect a week or month later?... On the whole I find this site fascinating and valuable and undoubtly has helped many people as it has myself."

It is protective of the thyroid, if it is present in the body at the time of exposure, which is why it is used daily.
Here again is Vit. C to the rescue, as it nullifies a certain amount of radiation, up to a point. I mean, full bore radiation will get you, ya' know?
Red Panax Ginseng nullifies radiation also. Those little ampules with a straw available at health food stores. And it is smoky and delicious... I take it with some local bee pollen and the two are great together, as the ginseng is based in honey from another country.

Thank you for making this correction.

On our national TV news station, we have just been informed that traces of radiation have been detected in California today.
Potassium Iodide protects the thyroid only. We must do more than protect just our thyroids from radiation. This is information I have just sent out around the World today, a propos the escalating situation in Japan and elsewhere:
Re: Japan's nuclear disaster, and the effects of radiation on our bodies, especially on those of our vulnerable children. My former physician, Dr. Carolyn Dean, now practicing in Hawai'i, tells us that the survivors of nuclear fallout in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, during WWII nuclear bombings, were the seaweed-eaters. Seaweed absorbs radiation, thus protecting our whole body when eaten. I add dulse to soup daily, and there are other types of seaweed just as powerful. Dr. Dean's website: see her March 17 issue for more protection tips: http://drcarolyndean.com/tips?e=0157-1&p=3214
Also, Foods such as apples, buckwheat and sunflower seeds cleanse us of radiation. Apples and sunflower seeds contain pectin which binds with and removes radioactive residues from the body. Buckwheat contains glucosides which protect us from the effects of radiation. Cereal grasses and other green foods like and chlorella and blue-green algae are also useful in cleansing our bodies of radiation. (1) Essential fatty acids such as flax seed oil renew cells which have been burned by radiation. Soaking in a bath with sea salt and baking soda draws toxins including radiation from the body.
Also, magnetic clay in your bath or even foot bath, draws out heavy metal toxins as well as radiation. Taking Potassium Iodide can unbalance one's body, although it may help inititially. Your newsletter is so influential. Please check this information out thoroughly, and tell people the above. It may not only save their lives, but also their future health.
Please stay cleansed, and healthy, yourself.

07/27/2011: Daisy from Irvine, Ca: "I'm not sure if you can post the name of a support here but I have been reading through a lot of the Radiation Remedies and no one has mentioned Ioguard which I think is the most powerful support out there. Also, Modifilan was used successfully after Chernobyl and I have tried both. I have done a lot of research after Fukashima and to my mind and with the studies that have been done, Ioguard is the one I trust. They say they developed for day to day exposure from cellphones, wi-fi, x-rays, etc. But it is the only product with DNA reductase which was proven to be the most powerful protectant and repair substance in a study with cancer patients receiving radiation therapy. I am not affiliated with these people in any way and the two products are not affiliated but wanted to share my research because I think it's important and it's only getting worse. Most people don't realize that radiation is still spewing from Fukashima daily and just because there is a news blackout doesn't mean it has ended. Also, our culture has become obsessed with radiation driven devices, forasking safety and health for convenience."

05/07/2012: Bill from Bt130550@gmail.com, Philippines replies: "Hi Clarity... The following will help to protect your husband's thyroid and salivary glands before and after after radiation therapy on his vocal chords:
* Orally supplement Lugol's Iodine(4 to 8 drops a day in 4 split doses outside mealtimes) OR using SSKI in similar manner OR taking liquid kelp extract every day will help to defend and protect the thyroid.
Introduce more chlorophyll-rich foods into your husband's diet, such as seaweed, kelp, blue-green algae, spirulina, and chlorella. These plants contain rich minerals, including iodine, that bind up the receptors site in your thyroid so that any radioactive iodine that you end up being exposed to will be unable to harm your thyroid. These foods also contain potent antioxidants, like selenium, that prevent destructive free radical activity and cancerous growth, as well as chelating agents that bind to toxins and eliminate them from your body.
*Eat antioxidant-rich foods of every color, especially cherries, blueberries, pomegranates, yams, and sweet potatoes. The variety of antioxidants found in these foods help your body to mop up free radicals and toxins.
* Alkalize using Ted's Alkalizing Remedies to alkalize both the blood and the body cells. See this link:
* Supplementing with Alpha Lipoic Acid(300 mgs twice a day) , Selenium(200 mcg twice a day), Milk Thistle(1000 mgs twice a day) and N-Acetyl Cysteine(500 mgs twice a day) at mealtimes will also help to give strong anti-oxidant support to the thyroid and salivary glands. This protocol also helps to generate glutathione and glutathione peroxidase -- two very useful and protective anti-oxidants that specifically help to protect not only the thyroid but also the liver as well.
* Supplementing Vitamin C (as Ascorbate) will also help to heal the damage more quickly after radiation. Take 3000 mgs or more of Vitamin C in three split doses a day. Taking regular doses of Vitamins D and E would also be useful."

07/06/2011: Danae from Munich, Bavaria replies: "There is a lot you can do to repair cells! Here are some suggestions you might want to consider:
Detox - with Green Vegetable juices or smoothies (see Smoothy Challenge on the web for inspiration and exchange) - every day! This is called 'soap' for the cells to get toxins out of the body! And in turn the cells can start to repair. If you are on the fly and cannot make ACV water etc. look out for Kombucha organic drinks - some taste really good and refreshing and help the liver to detox which is essential (it is an Asian healing secret).
PH-levels - check the ph-level and drink 1 liter of water added 1 tablespoon of ACV in small sips over the entire day to keep/or bring the ph level into a healthy state. Check out Kangen water - or broadcasts by Dr. Shinya (youTube) to see how the colon effects all parts of you health.
Dietary Changes - Dr. Shinya, Norman Walker, Natalia Rose recommend a special diet to clean the colon - but literally, change the diet to more fruits (cleansers in the morning) more vegetables (builders in the afternoon). Why juices during healing are so important: A weak physical state can often not digest raw food and without fresh enzimes, minerals etc. The body fails to repair. Juicing ensures that you get 100% enzymes but you will not loose any energy through digestion. This is the reason why this is so important in the beginning. And out of experience no vitamin pill can compare with fresh juices! The physical effect is totally different.
Colon Gravity Hydro Therapy - this will possibly be a key to advance the healing. I changed my diet radically 6 month ago as I had allergies suddenly appearing and came to healing crisis. Colon Hydro was the key factor to quicken the progress in my situation. In healing circles fresh juices are called 'soap' of the body and the colon hydro the 'shower' - together they have immense effects to help the body to a state of self-healing!
Since I realised how to clean my cells and stay away from processed foods all kinds of "little ailments" left me.
I can only support you - if you start gently with a smoothie or fruit juice every day before eating anything else (make some research to understand how things have to work together to ensure gentle and longlasting cellular cleansing) your husband will see results and find healing.
Once you start, keep in mind detoxing the cells means that you need to support all "detoxing organs: COLON = Colon Hydro or enemas. LIVER = Kombucha, Schizandra, ACV, Kangen Water, organic lemon juice with water in the morning, smoothies. KIDNEY = drink a lot of water or above mentioned beverages make some research on good juices for his condition (carrot and spinach, carrot, cucumber and beet root with some lemon, paers and ginger for taste). SKIN = is an underestimated major detoxing organ. Use Dry brushing or shiatsu pressure massage (depending if you husband tolerates it but foot reflex massage is often good as well) to get the lymphs flowing and to help the toxins to be released over the skin. If you support these organs you cell cleanse will be gentle and effective.
Natalie Rose emphasises a gentle transition which is the most effective and healing. Stay balanced --- these simply steps whatever you can integrate will help - be consistent and implement it for at least 30 days and you will be amazed!
I started detoxing and am so glad that so much can be reversed... And a friend of mine who had breast cancer with 70 started the same 5 years ago and is completely healed --- she worked with an intuitive healer and health nutritionist and looks younger now!!! Just check it out - there is so much on the web. Trust natures amazing healing properties.
I wish all the best for your journey & God bless!"
07/07/2011: Mmsg from Somewhere, Europe replies: "to Vicky from Plymouth, Mi, for water retention, I find that IBT (inclined bed therapy) helps dramatically. Together with whatever else you are doing, try raising the HEAD of the bed a few inches."
07/07/2011: Debbie from Melbourne, Australia replies: "Vicky, I agree with everyone else that green juices are excellent for ridding the body of radiation. I would add that wheatgrass juice has been shown to rid the body of radiation. You can research this. Google "Ann Wigmore wheatgrass radiation" and you should find a lot of info. Wheatgrass will also rid the body of heavy metals.
Chlorella and spirulina are also excellent to take. Here is an excellent ebook to read. (only 39 pages)
From the book:
The astounding truth of how one group of patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation actually quadrupled their two-year survival rates by taking a single dose of chlorella!
07/28/2011: Vee from South Mills, Nc replies: "Vicky, have you tried detoxing? If there is still bad stuff sitting in the cells, detoxing makes sense to me. I'd do that, I'd get his ph balanced, I'd oxygenate him with H2O2, maybe do juicing with only organic veggies/fruits and throw in some Apple Cidar Vinegar. ACV helps more things than you can imagine."
06/08/2011: Gina from Hudson, Nc: "My husband had testicular cancer at the age of 33. That has been 10 years ago. He took 30 high dose radiation treatments. The radiation is now causing some new health problems. How can I cleanse his system of this old radiation? Will Foot Detox work?
07/06/2011: Danae from Munich, Bavaria replies: "Dear Gina, The first thing which comes to thought is --- to eat seaweed (Nori leaves which are used for Sushi can make excellent organic food wraps). In Japan after the first atomic cathastrophy a lot of people healed themselves simply be consitantly eating seawead or take chlorella supplements.
Next is drink a lot of Kangen water - check it out on YouTube Dr. Shinya healed a lot of people with this type of Water.
Consider Chi pads or oil to detox through the feet.
Dead Sea Salt bathing --- this is just intuitive --- this might work --- as certain salts & minerals are absorbing radioactive rays... might be worth to checking out.
Take some herbal supplements (my favorite DragonHerbs Dan Tien approach - you can learn a lot on the website or by Ron Teaguarden's books to support your husbands physical state systematically and learn how to stabelise not overwelm the system) --- Schizandra protects the liver and in turn will allow a more healthy detoxing experience. As long as the liver, kidneys, skin & colon are healthy the rest will find its way - Dr. Shinya seems to think to cleanse the colon (kangen water with dietary changes) can clear the effects of cancer treatment. If your husband is open to alternative treatments - check even out some posts on colon hydro therapy - make sure you listen to people who went through the experience (it is different for everyone but there is so much controversal material out there - that I realised that I had to learn from people who really healed themselves --- not those who just theorise... ) - Norman Walker & Natalia Rose are excellent here and some youTube posts by Micheal Perrin and Donna Perone are very enlightening and actually helped me to have the courage to do it. And it does change the cell energy and your awareness of how to nourish yourself back to health.
Generally, make sure that the cells are healthy. I found that detoxing is a major key - just wrote a post earlier describing the process - Green Smoothies, juices & salads --- if this is new to you and your husband --- make some research in the internet and read books from Norman Walker, Dr. Shinya, Natalia Rose, Kimberly Snyder to name but a few --- but make your own research and look who really attracts you - Food is of major importance in regenerating cells --- and this way even radiation can be reduced. A friend of mine does not even have scars after the treatment as she religiously worked with a nutrionist to detox on a deep level and that with 70!
I really wish you both the best of luck and as he is so young. Nature is most amazing if you prepare the right environment health seems always to regenerate! I found a blog by livingthenourishedlife very helpful as it is inspirational to hear again and again how people returned themselve to health by making the right food choices and not to fool yourself --- your husband needs to become aware of what is healing to him there is 'no shoe which fits us all' --- that is why I enjoy this blog) I really think if you help him with right food choices he will feel much better. God bless! "
04/13/2011: Pt from Kennesaw, Ga: "This radiation will soon be in all of our food and water. I am taking Lugol's iodine to limit the iodine-131 absorbed by my thyroid. Is there anything else we can be taking to rid out bodies of this radiation? I have stopped drinking/using milk, but it will soon be in more foods."
