Reducing Radiation Damages with Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda)

image

So deep are the protective, buffering and neutralizing properties of bicarbonate that it is used even with radiation exposure to protect the kidneys and other tissues. In a world that is already overexposed to uranium and mercury, sodium bicarbonate becomes even more important because mercury and uranium oxide directly attack the nuclear material and mitochondria of the cells.

The oral administration of sodium bicarbonate diminishes the severity of the changes produced by uranium in the kidneys.[1]

The kidneys are usually the first organs to show chemical damage upon uranium exposure. Old military manuals suggest doses or infusions of sodium bicarbonate to help alkalinize the urine if this happens. This makes the uranyl ion less kidney-toxic and promotes excretion of the nontoxic uranium-carbonate complex. The oral administration of sodium bicarbonate diminishes the severity of the changes produced by uranium in the kidneys.[2]

It does this for all the heavy metals and other toxic chemicals including chemotherapy agents, which are highly lethal even in low dosages. After depleted uranium weapons were used starting in the first Gulf War, the United States has polluted the world with uranium oxide and it is showing up more and more in tests doctors perform. With a half life of several billion years we had better be prepared to get used to dealing with the toxic effects and help our bodies clear it more easily through the kidneys. Sodium bicarbonate is an absolute must item in any field hospital and it should be in used and recommended in all clinics and be present in every home medicine cabinet.

In reality we need a more descriptive image for bicarbonate. Its pharmacological characteristics, even though widely used, are not well understood. What does bicarbonate really do? Well, instead of a muscleman with a mallet, an even better image would be a strong janitor mopping up the messes and carrying the poisons away. This strong janitor protects tissues and leaves an alkaline film or trail behind to make sure everything stays safe. In medicine, sodium bicarbonate is the cleaning and security man proven loyal through decades of faithful service and he can be brought in to provide some sort of protection in cases where people are suffering from radiation toxicity.

So useful and strong is sodium bicarbonate that at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, researcher Don York has used baking soda to clean soil contaminated with uranium. Sodium bicarbonate binds with uranium, separating it from the dirt; so far, York has removed as much as 92 percent of the uranium from contaminated soil samples. I started writing about baking soda after discovering that the United States Army recommends the use of bicarbonate to protect the kidneys from radiation damage.

Blaise W. LeBlanc, a former research chemist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture identified the byproduct hydroxymethylfurfural, (HMF) as a potential culprit in colony collapse disorder of bees. LeBlanc has a solution to minimize HMF toxicity: By adding bases (such as sodium bicarbonate, or baking soda, lime, potash or caustic soda) to HFCS, the pH rises and HMF levels drop. Sodium bicarbonate can safely remove paint, grease, oil and smoke residue, decreasing workers’ exposure to harsh chemicals and eliminating much of the hazardous waste associated with other cleaners. "Sodium bicarbonate is able to clean in areas where other substances pose fire hazards, because baking soda is a natural fire extinguisher," says Kenneth Colbert, a general manager for Arm & Hammer. This is the reason it’s used by oncology centers to control chemo agent spills and its actually used intravenously to protect patients from the hazardous toxicity of chemotherapy.

Bicarbonate and Nuclear Fallout

image

If the bombs start dropping anywhere on earth you will need to have a large amount of sodium bicarbonate on hand. Minimum stocks should be 25 or 50 pounds. You will also need iodine, magnesium chloride, spirulina and a long list of survival items. I am recommending that one stocks up on bicarbonate, which is extraordinarily inexpensive.

Normally I recommend someone start with using one pound of bicarbonate in a bath but that could easily be two or three pounds in an emergency situation. It is not a joke that one can get fifty pounds of the most powerful medicines on earth for thirty five bucks. You will also need a lot of magnesium salts and the very best and most penetrating of them is the magnesium chloride in the form of magnesium bath flakes.

I was able to talk to the folks at LL’s Magnetic Clay Company and for two weeks they will give 40 percent off of their normal retail price for 32 pounds of bath flakes. That translates to 90 dollars for Ancient Minerals bath flakes which come from ancient deep underground deposits that are the purest you can find.

They also sell the Nascent Iodine which I recommend and you will want on hand for yourself and children.  The time to start strengthening your thyroid is now. This is not a scare tactic it is just prudent preventative medicine.

The Magnetic Clay Company obviously sells a lot of clay and this is also very important to have on hand for medical, environmental and nuclear emergencies. Clay baths are a very strong way of removing heavy metals from the body and would increase our chances of survival if exposed to nuclear fallout. Spirulina has been used heavily by the Russians after the Chernobyl nuclear plant disaster. And the Japanese love their miso soup and that was said to help some of their citizens survive the fallout after the Americans attacked two of their cities full of innocent men, women and children. Sadly, it appears that few Americans lost any sleep over it, for it was fully justified in the history books if you can believe any of them.

On Wednesday the 14th of April 2010 four top representatives of the Obama administration told Congress they are urgently pursuing new sanctions on Iran and added that a military strike has not been ruled out. President Barack Obama has said he won’t “take any options off the table with respect to Iran,” Undersecretary of Defense Michele Flournoy said. “Now, that means to me that military options remain on the table.”

Smart people today are preparing for social, economic, climate change and even disaster. There is no longer war without nuclear materials (depleted uranium weapons) being spent on the battlefield as it has already happened in Iraq twice, in Afghanistan, and even in Lebanon. That nasty stuff called uranium oxide is going to be kicking up dust among us for the next several billions years, so get used to it. Being told to get used to it by a psychopath talking to the families of his victims is one thing but being told as I am doing here,  suggests defensive medical preparations and for that you have magnesium chloride, iodine, sodium bicarbonate, spirulina and clay.

The prices listed below are available through LL’s Magnetic Clay at: www.magneticclay.com The special 40% pricing on the 32 lb. size of bath flakes is only available for 2 weeks (From April 29 until May 12, 2010) via the discount code I requested for my readers “imvabaths.” This is a very special offer that I hope you will take advantage of as it won’t be offered at this discount again, anytime soon. IMVA thanks LL’s Magnetic Clay for making this possible. As you can see below the discount is very good.

Ancient Minerals Magnesium Chloride- 6.5 lbs

$55.00

Ancient Minerals Magnesium Chloride – 32 lbs

$90.00

Dead Sea salt is another option and is slightly less expensive than pure magnesium flakes. It is high in magnesium chloride and also high in potassium chloride. I highly recommend the use of this salt but also recommend that one use the Ancient Minerals in combination to get the magnesium concentration even higher.

    Thanks for the helpful advice on baking soda. I wish I could find a site that just deals with baking soda and its uses, and not interjections of personal opinions about politics. I will keep searching.

    ***IMPORTANT NOTE*** One thing this article DOES NOT mention and should is that almost all baking soda, including Arm and Hammer are alluminum based (more metal)……There are brands that are NON alluminum, one is Bobs Red Mill. Very important to use a non alluminum baking soda. We don’t need any more alluminum in our system.

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff

      Dear June,

      Dr. Sircus and I have stated that Arm and Hammer does NOT contain aluminum. I have personally communicated with the mfg of Arm and Hammer and they assure that there is NO aluminum in their baking soda.

      If it says 100% sodium bicarbonate on the box it does not contain aluminum. It may be added into other products but not Arm and Hammer Baking soda (100% sodium bicarbonate) which is mined from natural trona mines and not manufactured in any other way like those making baking soda from the by-products of various other industries.

      Bob’s red mill and others use their advertisements to their own advantage in making the statement that it is aluminum free.

      Baking powder, an entirely different product, does or has in the past contained added aluminum.

      If you have any references to the fact that you are stating, please send them to me at cfrench180@tampabay.rr.com.

      Just make sure what you purchase states 100% sodium bicarbonate on the label. … wiith nothing else added.

    It’s appears that some of the responders have huge loads of uranium and mercury in their brains causing them to have cognitive dissonance and moral degradation. Only a completely insane,brainwashed person would legitimize the use of nuclear weapons at any time….

    I think this is a wonderful thing to do is put this out there for information for anyone to read….But, I don’t like the inference of one of your paragraphs stating that the innocent Japanese people were bombed upon by indifferent Americans…Grant it…Most Civilians aren’t the ones involved in directly killing people…but, I will say, that it was the Japanese Military who bombed Pearl Harbor and killed soldiers and civilians on December 7th in Hawaii…before that bomb was ever created or even dreamed of using on the two Japanese cities…unfortunately, War itself is evil…perhaps you should really put your anger toward the profiteers of both World Wars, and that would be the International Bankers who put Arms Money and Mercenaries to make blood money….those are the true culprits….I don’t think truly anybody wants to go to war or send their children into harms way…or wants anybody to bomb their homeland…

    Add as much Pure Baking Soda as it can dissolve. It is very safe, but you must dissolve it well. This is an anti acid. I heal my saltwater fish using this.

    “he is dead wrong on the bombings of Japan. If we had not done that we would have lost hundreds of thousands of US soldiers due to the fact they Japanese had determined to fight to the end.”
    Jct: That’s the false pretext for using the nukes but the US had complete control of the air war and had already almost completely fire-bombed Japan. They could have just kept firebombing with no need whatsoever to invade. Using those nukes on a helpless enemy was a war crime and the lie about the need for an invasion being their only alibi. Well it’s a lie, complete control of the air meant there was never a need for an invasion and there was never a need to nuke.

    With Sodium Bicarbonate, what is the dosage taken w/water and how may times a day? When adding lime & potash or caustic soda, what is the qty? Please provide the formula on taking Sodium Bicarbonate alone or with other additives. Thanks, this would be most helpful in conjunction to his post!

    • IMVA Staff

      Yolanda,

      Baking soda , approx 2 lb. , should be added to bath water to draw out the radiation. iF you also want to take it orally, follow the pkg instructions, check pH daily so as not to go over 7.3. Maximum dose is 7 half tsp/day. or 3 half tsp. /day if over age 60.

Maybe any other enlightening bits of health/safety info…..these wars are all long gone by and we as a species has at least learned something in the process…..Love one another as we all suffer and die slowly of millions of optional ailments….Just Love one another?

    The Japanese citizenry supported WW2 and wanted the war. The Japanese citizenry were part of the Japanese war effort and not civilians. Japan started the war and the US ended the war. To bad we did not have nukes at the beginning of WW2 and Hitler and his ilk would have been burnt out of existence and tens of millions would have been saved….

    If my family’s survival and my nation’s survival are dependent on using nukes to save us, then let the nukes fly….. We shall live free or dead….

    it is better to be free an eek out an existance than to live as a slave in luxury….

    for if I am free I can make a better life for my family….

    let the nukes fly….

    One can NEVER justify the deliberate killing of CIVILIANS in wartime even if it will save the lives of COMBATANTS..NEVER(!). That is the attitude of a barbarian/heathen! That the Japanese did it makes no difference to any civilized human being. The British commited the same crimes (only on a larger scale, if that can be visualized) by firebombing Dresden and they are just as loathsome for doing it. And I’ll be happy to put my money where my mouth is as I’m an ex-GI (Vietnam).
