Radiation..What are you doing?

by Sasha on April 3, 2011


Over the last couple of weeks I have been reading a lot of articles relating to radioactive material leaking from Fukushima plant and thinking about what I should add to my daily routine. Around the same time that the leak started in Japan there was also a leak in Ontario Canada at the Pickering Plant. I live in Canada about an hour away from the leak. If you are interested in eating healthy food, now it a great time to start incorporating more super foods into your diet to help offset all of this toxic matter.

I have included a few articles from some of the top health experts in my opinion. I read most of these articles and then made a list of what I want to purchase and incorporate into my diet or just simply increase. For example the soup above has some dulse flake in it. I also love adding my things to my smoothies such as algae, bee pollen, camu camu and more. So this is the perfect place for me to incorporate some of their suggestion. If you want a more detailed protocol they provide it for you.

In the articles you will notice that there a lot of common recommendations such as adding kelp and other sea vegetables into your diet by supplement or as food. Boosting your immune system with vitamins and herbs. Some other points touched upon correcting our nutritional deficiencies and eating chelating herbs. I think there is some great information here on how to support and protect our bodies at this time. I am not in a panic by any means, but I do want to be aware of what I can do to support my body in the best way and that’s why I looked to these experts on what to do.

A summary of some of the supplements that are mentioned in the articles are:
Vitamin C
Kelp and
Sea Vegetables
Chlorella
Spirulina
Vitamin/Mineral Supplements
Ginseng
Ashwagandha
Fulvic Acid
Medicinal Mushrooms
Iodine
E3Live/Blue Green Algae
MegaHydrate

Natural News

Body Ecology
Article talks about radioactive Iodine 131 and how it effects our bodies and why we need to make sure our iodine levels are not deficient.

Dr. Mercola
If you scroll down to the section on what to take there is a nice chart of herbs, vitamins and supplements that are listed.

David Wolfe
Amazingly detailed information on products that he recommends and what protocol to take. Very eye opening information on how radiation effects us and what to do to protect ourselves.

Dr. Gabriel Cousens

This is my smoothie with an extra dose of blue green algae, vitamin c and bee pollen.

What are you doing to help your body deal with radioactive material? Love to hear if you are doing anything? Go ahead and post your link in the comments section sharing one of your kelp or seaweed recipe below for others to try. We might as well help each other out and swap some of the good stuff. I am sure you have lots.

Thanks to one of my fellow blogger’s Kelli She has been posting some great recipes with kelp in them and information on radiation as well. Go take a peak.

wow, thanks for compiling all of the places to research about the radiation-I have heard bits and pieces but have not taken the time to really figure out-I always take chlorella every day and I do dulse flakes A LOT!!! I use bee pollen daily, and lots of vitamin C…..Hopefully, that is enough….

Awesome info Sasha! Thanks for this post. We've been adding/increasing some of these things in our diet. And I'll tell ya, if you haven't made the mock tuna Kelli posted you totally should. It's so good!

Hi Heidi, thank for the comments. I am so glad to hear that you are being proactive and adding a lot of these nutrients into your diet already. I have tried a version of Kelli's mock tuna. I didn't have all of the ingredients. However I can imagine with all the ingredients it will be amazing. I need to go shopping:)

Hi Lauren,

Glad you found it. I just got an email from a local raw online store here in Canada and they have almost the exact same list. I have been slowly increasing a few of the things that I am taking and adding a couple of new things in.
