In this informal conversation I had with Dr. David Brownstein he brings us back to the very basics of what we need to do to protect ourselves to the maximum possible from increasing radiation in the environment. So even before rushing out to buy iodine we might better start with hydrating our bodies to the 100 plus level because just like they need to spray down the reactors and spent rod pools with water, we ourselves need to spray down our entire cellular colony within our bodies. Simply put, our cells will burn a lot faster when dehydrated then when fully hydrated especially with purified water with some bicarbonate it in. David also makes the important point about vitamin C, so take yourself and everyone in the family up to bowel tolerance level. He also stresses not using common table salt but instead Real Salt, Himalayan or Celtic salts that are unprocessed; he explains how these salts can provide vital minerals that will protect the cells quickly.
Dr. Gabriel Cousins, in his book Conscious Eating, says, “Foods containing chlorophyll have long been known to protect against radiation. Generally speaking, any green foods have chlorophyll. From 1959 to 1961, the Chief of the U.S. Army Nutrition Branch in Chicago found that high-chlorophyll foods reduced the effects of radiation on guinea pigs by 50 percent. This includes all chlorophyll foods: cabbage, leafy green vegetables, spirulina, chlorella, wheatgrass, any sprouts, and the blue-green algae from Klamath Lake called Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA). This variety of blue-green algae is an excellent anti-radiation food because of its high cellular immutability and high regenerative energy, as well as its high chlorophyll content. It should be taken in a dose of four capsules (one gram) four times per day for one week before, and several weeks after, radiation exposure.”
In my essay Treatments for Nuclear Contamination I mentioned that spirulina and chlorella have been used heavily by the Russians after the Chernobyl nuclear plant disaster. Dr. Cousins knows his medicine and his food. What he says above is critical information and that is why I recommend Rejuvenate in high doses because of its high spirulina and chlorella content and because it is refined cellular rocket fuel providing them with a broad range of concentrated nutrients in high enough dosages to make a huge difference to the cells, especially when they are under oxidative stress. Dr. Gabriela Segura reminds us that, “radiation produces free radicals (inflammatory molecules) that damage cells that make up tissues such as organs, glands, muscles, and bones. Besides causing the cells to age more quickly they also become distorted, or mutated, creating cancers such as leukemia, anemia, birth defects, and other diseases.” As you will see on my blog post about Rejuvenate, it is its great taste that makes it much easier to overwhelm the cells with concentrated broad-spectrum nutrition.
While we are talking basics I want to remind people also to stock up on vitamin E tablets and one way to go with this is with MegaFoods’ combined selenium and vitamin E formula or any formula that is whole food oriented like New Chapter formulas are. Megafood and New Chapter are companies that set the standards when it comes to quality whole food oriented manufacture of vitamin and mineral supplements.
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that will help to prevent damage to cell membranes caused by ionizing radiation. It works by stopping the chain reactions triggered by the radiation that oxidize the polyunsaturated lipids in the membranes. These chain reactions are what make fatty food go rancid if you keep them for too long. In effect, radiation makes your cell membranes go rancid and it is this that does most of the damage to the rest of the cell, including damage to its DNA.
I just got this letter:
I leave in Japan 200km from the Nuclear Power plant. We get no information or if they say anything is that things won’t be as bad as in Chernobyl. I’m a teacher we have hundreds of children is there anything I can do? What is the best thing to do in this situation? Please help me to help them.
The first thing I would tell you to do is go to my blog.imva.info and read all my posts from this week. Then I would tell you to think seriously of getting the kids and yourself out of there. To the south of Japan or out of the country altogether for the first principle of dealing with toxicity is to avoid exposure. If that is not possible read my protocol and start buying up as much of the items as you can and to sign up for my newsletter and watch for updates. Also I will be doing a live teleconference soon on how to administrate my Natural Allopathic Medicine protocol for radiation contamination. That should be in mid or late in the week.
I received this reply:
I just had a meeting with one engineer who works for nuclear plant in Japan. I was so shocked by what he was saying. He says it’s not dangerous and there is no need to move. He believes what the government says I was so shocked I couldn’t believe my ears. He has one year old baby I told him to immediately go to at least south of Japan because any exposure to radiation for a little girl like her could be fatal. He leaves 200km from the plant and thinks it’s safe. They still think it’s OK and they have things under control. Please I beg you if you have any other information let me know ASAP. I don’t mind dying but I can’t stand and watch thousands of innocent children suffering for years to come. Please help us I’ll pass the message to those who are willing to listen. Ignorance is so dangerous, isn’t it?
“The most troubling thing to me is the fear that’s out of proportion to the risk,” said Dr. Henry Duval Royal, a radiologist at Washington University Medical School. Men and statements like this truly make me sick. How can we not be troubled for the fate Japanese children who will be left to die at the hands of dim-witted medical people who have not the slightest idea what we are dealing with in Japan? The world and all the people in it are already suffering tremendously from the onslaught of heavy metals, chemicals and radiation exposures of many different kinds and sources and medicine has its head absolutely stuck in the sand on this.
Japan faces a catastrophe as radiation penetrates the entire northern half the country and could easily spread to the south. Early on in the crisis fear prompted some people to flee the capital and others to stock up on essential supplies. Fear sometimes is our best friend since it’s like an early warning radar device telling us of low flying dangers.
Yesterday I was on the radio with my colleague Dr. Gabriela Segura, a French heart surgeon. She and I have both recently published on the side effects and dangers of MMS (Miracle Mineral Supplement) and neither of us would be surprised if its advocates start preaching that it’s good for nuclear fallout as well.
Dr. Segura recently posted an important page on the Net that introduces something I overlooked completely in my first report on how to protect one from radiation as well as treat radiation sickness. This is incredibly important information for people to have in the northern hemisphere because radiation levels are only going to increase from this point on. This problem is not going away, though the authorities will try to hide as much as they can.
We need extra sulfur in our systems to help protect and treat radiation contamination. Segura published that, “Sulfur has a long history of use as an antidote for acute exposure to radioactive material. DMSO is the classical sulfur compound. A Japanese study showed that even low concentrations of DMSO had radio-protective effects through the facilitation of DNA double-strand break repair, providing protection against radiation damage at all cellular levels in the whole body. Remember that boosting your body’s detox capabilities and overall antioxidant levels is a key to survive in these stressful times. Being on a detox diet is crucial to regaining health in a toxic environment. Our extensive experience and research shows that those on a no grain/low carb (no gluten) and non-dairy diet fare MUCH better.”
There are four ways to get sulfur into our systems that I know of. There is DMSO, then sodium Thiosulfate, which I have recommended to people for years to put in their therapeutic baths and can be taken orally as well; there is also MSM and of course Epsom salts. I suggest you flood the companies that sell these products with your orders because like everything necessary and helpful for surviving the coming onslaught of slowly increasing radiation, these things will be in short supply.
DMSO: The Antidote for Radiation Poisoning
DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide) is an effective painkiller. It blocks nerve conduction ?bers that produce pain. It reduces in?ammation and swelling by reducing in?ammatory chemicals. It improves blood supply to an area of injury by dilating blood vessels and increasing delivery of oxygen and by reducing blood platelet stickiness. It stimulates healing, which is a key to its usefulness in any condition. It is among the most potent free radical scavengers known to man, if not the most potent one.
In 1866, Russian scientist Alexander Saytzeff isolated a most curious and peculiar chemical compound. It was crystalline, odorless, non-toxic and had a garlic-like taste when consumed. At the time, Saytzeff had no way to predict that his discovery was going to prove highly controversial throughout its entire medical history, that it was going to be tested in thousands of studies, providing miraculous relief in numerous patients.
I’m talking here about dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), an organic sulfur compound that was used only as an industrial solvent, that is, until its medical properties were discovered in 1963 by a research team headed by Stanley W. Jacob, MD. DMSO is a byproduct of kraft pulping (the “sulfate process”), which converts wood into wood pulp consisting of almost pure cellulose fibers. As industrial as it may sound, the process simply entails a treatment of wood chips with a mixture of sodium hydroxide and sodium sulfide, known as white liquor, breaking the bonds which link lignin (from the Latin word lignum, meaning wood) to the cellulose.
DMSO is useful as a pain reliever, in burns, acne, arthritis, mental retardation, strokes, amyloidosis, head injury, scleroderma; it soothes toothaches, eases headaches, hemorrhoids, muscle strains; it prevents paralysis from spinal chord injuries; it softens scar tissues. In fact, it is useful in well over 300 ailments and is safe to use. You would think that a compound that has so many alleged uses and benefits would be automatically suspect, but careful examination of its properties and the data available will shed some light in this miraculous chemical.
Sulfur: The Stuff of Life
DMSO is an intermediate product of the global sulfur cycle, which distributes bioavailable sulfur for all animal and plant life (Parcell, 2002). Sulfur compounds are found in all body cells and are indispensable for life; they are needed for a number of chemical reactions involved in the detoxification of drugs and other harmful toxins, and they have potential clinical applications in the treatment of a number of conditions such as depression, fibromyalgia, arthritis, interstitial cystitis, athletic injuries, congestive heart failure, diabetes, cancer, and AIDS (Parcell, 2002). Among the sulfur compounds, DMSO is probably the one that has the widest range and greatest number of therapeutic applications ever shown for any other single chemical. It has around 40 pharmacological properties that may be beneficial in the prevention, relief or reversal of numerous diseases (Morton, 1993).
