| Radiation Detox
Radiotherapy is commonly used to kill cancer cells in the body, however the radiation doesn't target just the cancer cells, but all cells.
The effect on healthy cells leads to loss of hair, radiation sickness, tiredness, and extremely low immunity - leaving the body susceptible to infection and viruses.
How you treat your body in this period is key, there are many ways in which you can help your body detox from the radiation, boost your immunity and fight cancer cells in your body.
What Can I Do?
Eat Organic Food
To ensure your body is getting the best nutrition easy steps to take would be to make sure you are eating plenty of fresh organic greens and fruits. The importance of organic food can't be stressed enough. Fresh foods have a life force. It is this life force that helps heal our bodies from the inside out, so we want to make sure we have the best quality nutrients in our system.
Food has the most amount of life force when raw, heat denatures life force and vitamins. The extreme is when food is processed and additives are added. Below is a kirlian photograph showing the life force in raw and steamed broccolli.
Juicing is a great way to get large amounts of nutrients into your diet - but fiber is also extremely important for removing toxins from the body, so I would highly recommend an equal amount of smoothies where the whole fruit is also consumed.
Juicing dark leafy greens such as kale, spinach, chard, parsley, coriander, collard greens, brocolli and cabbage will provide your body the dense amounts of nutrients it needs to increase immunity & begin healing. You will need a juicer that can handle the job - I use the Green Star, but there are many out there to choose from. Recommended links page.
Cow milk should be avoided where possible, as the milk protein 'casein' is a known carcinogen.
Supplement Your Diet
There are several really helpful supplements that have been proven to aid radiation detox, here are some I have discovered.
A natural dietary supplement extracted from the richest type of brown seaweed -- Laminaria japonica. This unique nutritional product is comprised of all the important organic elements found in seaweed.
The Russian government sought to find a powerful remedy for radiation poisoning among that macrobiotic group. After trying various algae, one type gave the best scientific data. The synergetic combination of ionic iodine, laminarin, alginates, and selenium in Laminaria japonica had the strongest effect compared to all other types of kelp. It was the perfect group of elements, present in a single natural source.
The most recognized kelp and algae nutritional supplements are generally variations of dry, ground seaweed, and nothing else. In its original form, seaweed is not optimally digestible. Thick, heavy fibers of seaweed turn into a harsh, sandy substance when they are dried and ground. Mix any other type of seaweed product with water and you will see that it does not dissolve entirely, but rather makes a sludge which never gets digested. When Modifilan is mixed with water or juice, it develops into a light, suspended gel. The extract fully dissolves, and this is the best indication of a product's bio-availability.
Organic Iodine feeds the thyroid gland, which controls metabolism and promotes maturation of the nervous system. It is also the main natural disinfection agent in our body. Every 15 minutes, all of our blood goes through that small organ.
Laminarin is a polysaccharide that is helpful in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. It helps to balance coagulation of blood.
Alginate is a natural absorbent of radioactive elements, heavy metals, and free radicals. It has the unique ability of binding heavy metals and radioactive elements to its own molecules. Because the Alginate cannot be broken down by bile or saliva and cannot be absorbed by the body, it is secreted from the body together with the heavy metals and radioactive substances.
Modifilan was little known in the Soviet Union for several decades due to its very specific field of application. The first time it was successfully used in volume was after the Chernobyl nuclear plant catastrophe in 1989. When used for detoxification and thyroid gland rehabilitation, Modifilan helped thousands of nuclear plant workers and people in the area who were affected by the explosion. A large group of doctors was assigned to observe the health conditions of those who took Modifilan for almost a year. The results exceeded all expectations.
Since then, rigorous scientific and clinical studies in the USSR have revealed many other benefits of this product. The latest research on brown seaweed in Japan has confirmed the presence of Fucoidan. This organic element promotes apoptosis (self-destruction of cancer) and helps to eliminate harmful cells naturally. Modifilan has 4 percent of Fucoidan by volume in natural shape - as much as raw kelp itself.
I think of chlorophyll as the 'green blood' that circulates in plants, converting sunlight to energy and providing life.
Chlorophyll's molecular structure is almost identical to hemoglobin, which makes up 75% of our blood & is vital to blood health.
Hemoglobin's centre atom is iron, whereas in chlorophyll it is magnesium. When ingested, chlorophyll helps to do the job of hemoglobin. It helps to rebuild and replenish our red blood cells, boosting our energy and increasing our wellbeing almost instantly.
Health Benefits of Chlorophyll:
- Regenerates our bodies at the molecular and cellular level and is known to help cleanse the body, fight infection, help heal wounds, and promote the health of the circulatory, digestive, immune, and detoxification systems.
- Increases the number of red blood cells and, therefore, increase oxygen utilization by the body.
- Reduces the binding of carcinogens to DNA in the liver and other organs.
- Breaks down calcium oxalate stones for elimination, which are created by the body for the purpose of neutralizing and disposing of excess acid.
You can buy chlorophyll as a supplement - but I find juicing dark leafy greens a more effcient way to get the whole spectrum of fresh nutients.
This super nutrient is packed with 18 amino acids, including 8 essential amino acids. Spirulina is a blue-green micro algae, also rich in beta carotene, Vitamin E, iron and iodine. Great for cleansing and rebalancing.
“In Chernobyl ... spirulina was used to help save many children from radiation poisoning. By taking 5 grams of spirulina a day for 45 days, the Institute of Radiation Medicine in Minsk even proved that children on this protocol experienced enhanced immune systems, T-cell counts and reduced radioactivity.
Israeli scientists have since treated Chernobyl children with doses of natural beta carotene from Dunaliella algae and proved that it helped normalize their blood chemistry. Chlorella algae, a known immune system builder and heavy metal detoxifier, has also shown radioprotective effects. Because they bind heavy metals, algae should therefore be consumed after exposure to any type of radioactive contamination.” More
Chlorella contains more chlorophyll than most sources, more Vitamin B12 than liver and 19 of the 22 amino acids. Rich source of DNA/RNA, polyunsaturated fatty acids, calcium,iron, selenium and zinc.
Liver detoxifier, antibiotic, metabolic stimulant, bowel cleanser, nutrient for friendly flora, immune sustainer, anti-candida, antiviral, blood oxidant for production of red cells, anti-cholesterol.
Also found to have an inhibitory effect on the growth of tumor cells.

Ginseng is an adaptogen, which helps the body handle stress, fatigue & anxiety. Russian clinical studies show ginseng has radioprotective properties.
Miso is a Japanese fermented soy paste. Brown Miso broth has radioprotective properties. For twice the protection add a quarter-ounce/5 grams of dried kelp seaweed to the soup. In scientific studies, seaweed was able to neutralize radioactive isotopes in the human body. McGill University research claims radioactive strontium binds to the algin in brown seaweeds to create sodium alginate, a compound easily and harmlessly excreted.
Common black tea demonstrated anti-radiation effects in several Japanese studies.
Run a Bath & Have a Soak
Epsom salts are used in treatment for people who have been exposed to radiation. An Epsom salt soak will help draw out toxins and detox your body.
Epsom salts are crystals of hydrated magnesium sulphate, a naturally occurring rock. They contain important mineral components like magnesium, sulphate, hydrogen and oxygen. Magnesium is the second most abundant element found in the cells of a human body and is involved in a number of internal bodily functions. Deficiency of magnesium can lead to joint problems, including arthritis, blood circulation problems including strokes, digestive problems and problems related to the mental well being of a person.
Epsom salts also have antiseptic capabilities. They help heal minor wound and skin abrasions. A regular Epsom salt soak is also known to improve one’s digestive system which aids detoxification by regulating level of toxic elements in our body.
