TREATING RADIATION SICKNESS / EXPOSURE
Macrobiotic diet against radiation sickness
Barbara Brennan writes in her classic Light Emerging, “If you are having any kind of radiation treatments, consider going macrobiotic. According to Michio and Aveline Kushi, macrobiotics is very effective in curing radiation sickness. In his book Macrobiotic Diet, Michio Kushi states: ‘At the time of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki in 1945, Tatsuichiro Akizuki, M.D., was director of the Department of Internal Medicine at St. Francis Hospital in Nagasaki. Most patients in the hospital, located one mile from the center of the blast, survived the initial effects of the bomb, but soon after came down with symptoms of radiation sickness from the radioactivity that had been released. Dr. Akizuki fed his staff and patients a strict macrobiotic diet of brown rice, miso* and tamari soy sauce soup, wakame and other sea vegetables , Hokkaido pumpkin, and sea salt and prohibited the consumption of sugar and sweets. As a result, he saved everyone in his hospital, while many other survivors in the city perished from radiation sickness.’”
* miso: paste made from fermented soya beans and barley or rice malt, used in Japanese/macrobiotic cookery

Additional note by Healing Cancer Naturally:
If you follow Dr. Johanna Budwig’s healing diet & protocol (which reportedly has also helped heal heavily irradiated (and “chemotherapied”) cancer patients formerly considered terminal and written off as beyond hope, see Budwig Testimonials), I would advise integrating the above-listed food items featuring prominently in the macrobiotic diet, such as seaweed, organic brown rice, miso soup etc. While leaving out or strongly curtailing honey and sweet fruit which are not permitted or heavily restricted in macrobiotics. Make sure to use truly organically grown foods: whole-grain rice is particularly laden with pesticide and similar toxic residues.
Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) baths (testimonial)
“If you were near Chernobyl or if you had an X-rays or radiation treatments for cancer, my radionics practitioner said that you can soak your body in baking soda baths to help pull out the radiation from your body. If you look all over the web, there is talk about patients who have had mouth cancer who were given radiation treatments to get rid of the cancer, and then told to gargle with baking soda mixed in water.”
Tip: If you look for online sellers of baking soda, you might pay a fraction for it as compared to buying in a store or pharmacy as long as you buy larger amounts (which you will need if you plan on bathing regularly). A friend bought it very cheaply at Ebay but there are bound to be similar venues where online merchants offer inexpensive baking soda.
Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) rinses
“The most effective measure to treat RT-induced mucositis in patients with head and neck cancer is frequent oral rinsing with a sodium bicarbonate rinse, to reduce the amount of oral microbial flora.” (Oncol Nurs Forum. 2002 Aug;29:1063-80. A research review of the current treatments for radiation-induced oral mucositis in patients with head and neck cancer. Shih A, Miaskowski C, Dodd MJ, Stotts NA, MacPhail)
Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) plus sea salt baths
Similarly to the above, Barbara Brennan recommends in her classic Light Emerging to take 20-minute baking soda cum sea salt baths (mixing half a pound of salt and half a pound of baking soda) to drain the body of DOR (deadly orgone energy as described by Dr. Wilhelm Reich) etc. Since such baths are “energy draining”, she advises to be careful when getting up from them (circulation) and lie naked in the sun afterwards to recharge one’s battery. I would add the salt when the bathtub is somewhat filled already to avoid possible damage to any metal parts.

Epsom salts are a cheap white powder made of crystals of hydrated magnesium sulfate (chemical formula MgSO4 7H2O) which is used as a purgative etc. Any pharmacy or drug store should carry it. Use in baths. Epsom salts baths were part of this “terminal” colon cancer victor’s protocol.
Zeolites (a family of naturally occurring minerals, also produced in synthetic form) have been used to clean up water contaminated with radioactivity and similar pollutions and apparently also successfully applied to chelate various environmental and other toxins from the human body.

Hello Dr. Kelly Clients. I received this information just now from a colleague in Ashland.
There is an anticipated wind current radiaoactive fallout that is suppose to hit Oregon
Sometime this week (maybe as soon as tomorrow) I recommend taking sea kelp powder
- 1 - 2 tsp daily for several days - I don't know when this would blow over or not have an
Affect on us. We are always exposed to some element of radiation fall out from the past
Years of nuclear testing - but this is a more recent potential exposure. I will be taking
300-600 mg of mixed seaweeds for the next 2-4 weeks. Email or call with questions.
The thyroid gland takes up radioactive iodine from the nuclear system. The potassium iodine
Protects the thyroid. The seaweed is high in elemental nutrients and chelates radioactive
materials. Warm regards, Dr Kelly
I am forwarding this information from the FDA and CDC on the safe use of potassium
Iodide in a nuclear emergency.
"Adults: Adults older than 40 years should not take KI unless public health or emergency
Management officials say that contamination with a very large dose of radioactive iodine
is expected. Adults older than 40 years have the lowest chance of developing thyroid cancer
Or thyroid injury after contamination with radioactive iodine. They also have a greater
Chance of having allergic reactions to KI.
"How often should I take KI?
"A single dose of KI protects the thyroid gland for 24 hours. A one-time dose at the
Levels recommended in this fact sheet is usually all that is needed to protect the thyroid
Gland. In some cases, radioactive iodine might be in the environment for more than
24 hours. If that happens, local emergency management or public health officials may
Tell you to take one dose of KI every 24 hours for a few days. You should do this only on
The advice of emergency management officials, public health officials, or your doctor.
Avoid repeat dosing with KI for pregnant and breastfeeding women and newborn infants.
Those individuals may need to be evacuated until levels of radioactive iodine in the
environment fall. "
CDC Radiation Emergencies | Potassium Iodide (KI)
Potassium Iodide (KI)
What is Potassium Iodide (KI)?
Potassium iodide (also called KI) is a salt of stable (not radioactive) iodine. Stable iodine
Is an important chemical needed by the body to make thyroid hormones. Most of the
Stable iodine in our bodies comes from the food we eat. KI is stable iodine in a medicine
Form. This fact sheet from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) gives
You some basic information about KI. It explains what you should think about before
you or a family member takes KI.
What does KI do?
Following a radiological or nuclear event, radioactive iodine may be released into the air
And then be breathed into the lungs. Radioactive iodine may also contaminate the local
Food supply and get into the body through food or through drink. When radioactive
Materials get into the body through breathing, eating, or drinking, we say that "</radiation/contamination.asp>internal contamination" has occurred. In the case of
Internal contamination with radioactive iodine, the thyroid gland quickly absorbs this
Chemical. Radioactive iodine absorbed by the thyroid can then injure the gland. Because
Non-radioactive KI acts to block radioactive iodine from being taken into the thyroid gland,
It can help protect this gland from injury.
What KI cannot do
Knowing what KI cannot do is also important. KI cannot prevent radioactive iodine
From entering the body. KI can protect only the thyroid from radioactive iodine, not
Other parts of the body. KI cannot reverse the health effects caused by radioactive
Iodine once damage to the thyroid has occurred. KI cannot protect the body from
Radioactive elements other than radioactive iodine-if radioactive iodine is not present,
Taking KI is not protective.
How does KI work?
The thyroid gland cannot tell the difference between stable and radioactive iodine
And will absorb both. KI works by blocking radioactive iodine from entering the thyroid.
When a person takes KI, the stable iodine in the medicine gets absorbed by the thyroid.
Because KI contains so much stable iodine, the thyroid gland becomes "full" and cannot
Absorb any more iodine-either stable or radioactive-for the next 24 hours.
Iodized table salt also contains iodine; iodized table salt contains enough iodine to keep
Most people healthy under normal conditions. However, table salt does not contain enough
Iodine to block radioactive iodine from getting into your thyroid gland. You should not
Use table salt as a substitute for KI.
How well does KI work?
Knowing that KI may not give a person 100% protection against radioactive iodine is
Important. How well KI blocks radioactive iodine depends on how much time passes
Between contamination with radioactive iodine and the taking of KI (the sooner a person
Takes KI, the better), how fast KI is absorbed into the blood, and
the total amount of radioactive iodine to which a person is exposed.
Who should take KI?
The thyroid glands of a fetus and of an infant are most at risk of injury from radioactive
Iodine. Young children and people with low stores of iodine in their thyroid are also at
Risk of thyroid injury.
Infants (including breast-fed infants): Infants need to be given the recommended dosage
Of KI for babies (<#howmuchki>see How much KI should I take?). The amount of KI that
Gets into breast milk is not enough to protect breast-fed infants from exposure to
Radioactive iodine. The proper dose of KI given to a nursing infant will help protect it
From radioactive iodine that it breathes in or drinks in breast milk.
Children: The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends that all
Children internally contaminated with (or likely to be internally contaminated with)
Radioactive iodine take KI, unless they have known allergies to iodine. Children from
Newborn to 18 years of age are the most sensitive to the potentially harmful effects of
Young Adults: The FDA recommends that young adults (between the ages of 18 and
40 years) internally contaminated with (or likely to be internally contaminated with)
Radioactive iodine take the recommended dose of KI. Young adults are less sensitive
To the effects of radioactive iodine than are children.
Pregnant Women: Because all forms of iodine cross the placenta, pregnant women should take KI to protect the growing fetus. However, pregnant women should take only one dose of KI following internal contamination with (or likely internal contamination with) radioactive iodine.
Breastfeeding Women: Women who are breastfeeding should take only one dose
Of KI if they have been internally contaminated with (or are likely to be internally
contaminated with) radioactive iodine. Because radioactive iodine quickly gets into
Breast milk, CDC recommends that women internally contaminated with (or are likely
To be internally contaminated with) radioactive iodine stop breastfeeding and feed
Their child baby formula or other food if it is available. If breast milk is the only
food available for an infant, nursing should continue.
Adults: Adults older than 40 years should not take KI unless public health or
Emergency management officials say that contamination with a very large dose of
Radioactive iodine is expected. Adults older than 40 years have the lowest chance
Of developing thyroid cancer or thyroid injury after contamination with radioactive
iodine. They also have a greater chance of having allergic reactions to KI.
When should I take KI?
After a radiologic or nuclear event, local public health or emergency management
Officials will tell the public if KI or other protective actions are needed. For example,
Public health officials may advise you to remain in your home, school, or place of work
(this is known as "shelter-in-place") or to evacuate. You may also be told not to eat
Some foods and not to drink some beverages until a safe supply can be brought in
From outside the affected area. Following the instructions given to you by these
Authorities can lower the amount of radioactive iodine that enters your body and
lower the risk of serious injury to your thyroid gland.
How much KI should I take?
The FDA has approved two different forms of KI-tablets and liquid-that people can
Take by mouth after a nuclear radiation emergency. Tablets come in two strengths,
130 milligram (mg) and 65 mg. The tablets are scored so they may be cut into smaller
Pieces for lower doses. Each milliliter (mL) of the oral liquid solution contains 65 mg
Of KI. According to the FDA, the following doses are appropriate to take after
Internal contamination with (or likely internal contamination with) radioactive iodine:
Adults should take 130 mg (one 130 mg tablet OR two 65 mg tablets OR two mL of
Solution). Women who are breastfeeding should take the adult dose of 130 mg.
Children between 3 and 18 years of age should take 65 mg (one 65 mg tablet OR 1 mL
Of solution). Children who are adult size (greater than or equal to 150 pounds) should
Take the full adult dose, regardless of their age.
Infants and children between 1 month and 3 years of age should take 32 mg ( of a 65 mg
Tablet OR mL of solution). This dose is for both nursing and non-nursing infants and
Newborns from birth to 1 month of age should be given 16 mg ( of a 65 mg tablet or mL
Of solution). This dose is for both nursing and non-nursing newborn infants.
How often should I take KI?
A single dose of KI protects the thyroid gland for 24 hours. A one-time dose at
The levels recommended in this fact sheet is usually all that is needed to protect
The thyroid gland. In some cases, radioactive iodine might be in the environment for
More than 24 hours. If that happens, local emergency management or public health
Officials may tell you to take one dose of KI every 24 hours for a few days. You
should do this only on the advice of emergency management officials, public health
Officials, or your doctor. Avoid repeat dosing with KI for pregnant and breastfeeding
Women and newborn infants. Those individuals may need to be evacuated until levels
Of radioactive iodine in the environment fall.
Taking a higher dose of KI, or taking KI more often than recommended, does not offer more protection and can cause severe illness or death.
Medical conditions that may make it harmful to take KI
Taking KI may be harmful for some people because of the high levels of iodine in this medicine. You should not take KI if
· you know you are allergic to iodine (If you are unsure about this, consult your doctor. A seafood or shellfish allergy does not necessarily mean that you are allergic to iodine.) or
· you have certain skin disorders (such as dermatitis herpetiformis or urticaria vasculitis).
People with thyroid disease (for example, multinodular goiter, Graves' disease, or autoimmune thyroiditis) may be treated with KI. This should happen under careful supervision of a doctor, especially if dosing lasts for more than a few days.
In all cases, talk to your doctor if you are not sure whether to take KI.
What are the possible risks and side effects of KI?
When public health or emergency management officials tell the public to take KI following a radiologic or nuclear event, the benefits of taking this drug outweigh the risks. This is true for all age groups. Some general side effects caused by KI may include intestinal upset, allergic reactions (possibly severe), rashes, and inflammation of the salivary glands.
When taken as recommended, KI causes only rare adverse health effects that specifically involve the thyroid gland. In general, you are more likely to have an adverse health effect involving the thyroid gland if you
take a higher than recommended dose of KI,
take the drug for several days, or
have pre-existing thyroid disease.
Newborn infants (less than 1 month old) who receive more than one dose of KI are at particular risk for developing a condition known as hypothyroidism (thyroid hormone levels that are too low). If not treated, hypothyroidism can cause brain damage. Infants who receive KI should have their thyroid hormone levels checked and monitored by a doctor. Avoid repeat dosing of KI to newborns.
Where can I get KI?
KI is available without a prescription. You should talk to your pharmacist to get KI and for directions about how to take it correctly. Your pharmacist can sell you KI brands that have been approved by the FDA.

Calendula officinalis: topical treatment of radiation burn scars
For skin irritations and severe burns
I have read that dried calendula flowers available from herbal and health stores or similar outlets as well as from the Internet make an excellent "tea" (to be applied topically) for severe burns and many skin outbreaks (get organic quality calendula if possible). While Weleda makes a Calendula Baby Cream, made with sweet almond oil, lanolin, beeswax, biodynamic calendula officinalis flower extract, perfume from natural essential oils and other ingredients, this may be less effective than this much less expensive herbal calendula tea:
Pour a cup of boiling water onto 1-2 teaspoonsful of the florets and leave to infuse for 10-15 minutes (other sources may state different infusion practices and times). Use externally as a lotion or ointment (also recommended for cuts, bruises, diaper rash, sore nipples, other burns & scalds). Let dry after application. Completely safe and apparently non-staining. Can also be taken as tea.
[Liquid Calendula for sale apparently is preserved with alcohol.]
Echinacea for radiation burns (testimonial)
“A friend of mine with stage 4 cancer used echinacea (probably standard dosage) which had been quietly suggested by her radiologist - and after whole body maximum lifetime dose radiation, never developed the radiation burns which seem to be so common. No lobster look. Might be worth looking into.”
Aloe Vera plant gel for radiation burns
Reportedly, in 1959 the FDA “concluded from studies conducted by the Atomic Energy Commission at the radiation burn center at Los Alamos Laboratories in New Mexico that aloe gel did have a healing effect on skin tissue”.
Suggestion: Use the fresh gel found inside the leaves - for instance cut the leaf lenghtwise and apply it on the burn with the gel side facing the skin.
Compare Aloe Vera - the medicine plant.
Epi-soothe cream for burns etc. (testimonial)
“I've been using Epi-soothe cream and it works wonderfully for rashes, burns, open sores etc.!” See azherbals.com/episoothe.php .
Kombucha tea (testimonial)
“I took kombucha all the way through my radiation (right over the stomach) and my doctor told me I was the only patient he'd had that never had nausea after being radiated in that area; it's wonderful for your stomach and intestines. It's much more potent and MUCH cheaper if you make it yourself. You just need a culture to start with. I make about 2 gallons at a time. It comes out to about 10 cents per bottle compared to $2-$3 in the stores.”
Kombucha is a fermented or brewed beverage which is cultured for a number of days. Combined with tea, it contains active enzymes, probiotics (lactobacillus bacterium), amino acids, antioxidants, polyphenols and saccharomyces boulardi. Apparently very powerful with constipation (such as drinking half a glass 15 minutes before breakfast, with dosis increased as you get used to it.
Two kombucha brewing tips
Use green tea in your kombucha brew:
Apparently green tea contains tumor growth inhibiting factors (a polyphenol named EGCG) as well as other polyphenols (such as flavonoids) reputed to lower cholesterol, counteract free radicals, exhibit natural antibiotic characteristics or prevent blood clotting. Other ingredients include vitamin C, carotene, fluoride, zinc, selenium, manganese, potassium, niacin & folic acid.
Minimize or eradicate sugar:
The consumption of processed or refined sugar has been shown to be a risk factor in a number of health complaints including cancer. “Sugar is required in Kombucha to provide food for the yeast resident in the culture. Research and experimentation has shown that the best type of sugar to use is ordinary granulated white sugar, I.e. Sucrose. During fermentation the sucrose is broken down to its constituent parts, the simple sugars - glucose and fructose. Glucose is responsible for the formation of most of the organic acids with the exception of acetic acid, which derives from fructose. Glucose, which constitutes about 70% of sucrose, ferments far quicker than fructose and it is the latter which provides the residual sweetness in Kombucha.
If you prefer less sweetness in your Kombucha you can either a) extend the fermentation period by a few days, thus further acidifying the brew, or b) replace some of the sucrose with glucose (dextrose monohydrate), often found in home brewing shops described as brewing sugar. A 50/50 mix is a good start and will produce a beverage high in organic acids with minimal sweetness in a short time, 6 to 8 days. You will probably find the perfect mix by trial and error.”
So it seems to make sure there is no processed sugar left in your kombucha, it would be advisable to let it ferment as long as possible or reasonable to make sure all the sugar has been consumed by the yeasts.
Above Kombucha tips have been adapted or copied verbatim from aurorashopping.com/info/kombucha3.php where you’ll find detailed preparation instructions and other kombucha information.
Dr. Johanna Budwig’s health diet & protocol
& side effects from radiation treatments
Dr. Budwig expressly forbade cancer patients who followed her diet to treat their cancer, to concurrently use radiation and/or other cytostatic treatments (chemotherapy) arguing that any cytostatic treatments directly counteracted the “cytodynamic” effect of her diet, i.e. negated the effectiveness of the protocol (compare Budwig diet: what to avoid). Interestingly, Healing Cancer Naturally has come accross two reports where cancer patients did combine the Budwig Protocol with radiation treatments. Both reported that they did not have any side effects (or almost so) that the other patients were experiencing such as infections, pain, urination problems, etc. They attributed this to the Budwig protocol helping them go through the radiation treatments without a problem. So, similar to what I’ve occasionally seen reported from supplementation, the protocol might enhance the ability of one's system to alleviate some of the negative side effects associated with radiation by strengthening the body’s resiliency and natural defenses. Compare High-dose vitamin C and chemotherapy/radiation side effects.
Calcium Bentonite Clay
Great (and possibly accurate) claims are being made for Calcium Bentonite Clay as a general detoxifier incl. as a very effective ionizing radiation chelator, to be used both internally and externally (in baths etc.): “You have Calcium Bentonite Clay as your ally. By using Calcium Bentonite Clay as a lifestyle practice, as described in the book Living Clay, [Nature’s Own Miracle Cure, by Perry A. Smith], you will ... protect your body from the daily bombardment of radiation.... [R]adioactive material is of a positive charged ion. Calcium Bentonite Clay is a negative charged ion. Simply put, Calcium Bentonite Clay adsorbs and absorbs positive charged ions and you wash them off or pass them through your body.
One variety of calcium bentonite clay is considered the purest and best (i.e. most effective) available. The price is high but varies greatly among providers (I’ve seen the cheapest offer so far at ebay at 20 pounds for 60US$).
Algae: Chlorella & Spirulina
Chlorella ... touted as the perfect whole food ... has been found to improve the immune system, ... detoxify the body ... protect against radiation. (from the Vitamin Bible by Earl Mindell)
“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.” (from radiationdetox.com)
Note that chlorella and spirulina are rather expensive.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) in high or mega-doses reportedly “alleviates most of the horrible side effects of radiation therapy” and is also an effective help with chemotherapy treatment. More
Modifilan, a concentrated brown seaweed extract and
reportedly a potent radioactive elements chelator
Excerpted from modifilan.com:
MODIFILAN was developed in Russia by a group of scientists who worked in the State Rehabilitation Institute, where victims of the Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe underwent treatment. The healing qualities of seaweed had been known for centuries [compare The importance of minerals and trace elements], so the Russian government instructed scientists to find an effective and powerful remedy for the radiation poisoning of that particular population. After trying out various forms of algae, one type yielded the best scientific data for this purpose. It was the brown seaweed known as Laminaria japonica, which grows wild in the northern Pacific Ocean off the coast of uninhabited islands far to the east of Russia, known as the Kurils.
One of the main qualities of Laminaria is its high content of sodium alginates, which are enhanced by the extraction process used to produce MODIFILAN. Alginates are the most effective organic elements that enable the human body to get rid of heavy metals and toxins. Not all "algae" have alginates; blue or green algae do not. According to scientific testing, only this brown seaweed does! The unique methods of extraction, as well as the quality of this seaweed, are key. MODIFILAN has about 50% of the highest quality alginates.
The low-temperature processing of MODIFILAN causes a sloughing off of the heavy outer fibers of the seaweed, while retaining the essential properties of the plant. This process further enhances its bioavailability, making the Laminaria more digestible. Forty pounds of raw Laminaria are required to make one pound of MODIFILAN. Eating 8 capsules of extract a day provides the same amount of good, organic micro- and macro-elements contained in an entire plate of this nutrient-rich seaweed.
And, it is not cooked. The oldest Japanese recipes of preparing seaweed tell us to eat seaweed raw, rather than cooked. Modern science affirms that an anti-cancer substance called Fucoidan, as well as beneficial polysaccharides, will break down if the seaweed is cooked. This was determined when studies were performed on the Japanese island of Okinawa, known for its lowest cancer death rate in Japan.
The Center for Preventive Medicine had 332 subjects in their study. For six months, 158 of the 332 subjects took Modifilan every day. After this time, those who had taken Modifilan had:
a. Significant shrinking of the lymph glands which had been enlarged
b. Improved digestive systems
c. Decrease in the incidence of bronchitis by 29.5%
d. No side effects
The Institute of Immunology carried out research on volunteers from the Chernobyl region, who were exposed to radiation and heavy metal poisoning.
The results of this research showed:
a. Modifilan is safe to use; is nontoxic and nonallergenic
b. Modifilan is very effective in preventing the absorption of and
promoting the excretion of radioactive elements (e.g.
strontium and radioactive iodine)
Some volunteers began growing back their hair which had fallen out due to exposure to radioactive elements.
Results of the research at Biophysical Institute are:
a. Modifilan is effective in preventing the absorption of and in
promoting the excretion of radioactive elements (e.g.
strontium, cesium, and radioactive iodine)
b. Modifilan works to protect the thyroid glands by decreasing
the accumulation of radioactive iodine. As a result of this
research, Modifilan was recommended both as a healing
and preventive food supplement.
The State Technical Medical Center concluded upon completion of their research that Modifilan is:
a. A safe food supplement
b. Recommended to increase lipid metabolism
c. Recommended to improve the function of the immune system
d. Safe to use and has no harmful effects on any bodily functions
At the Cardiovascular Center at the Sakhalin Hospital, patients were given up to ten grams of Modifilan every day for three months. The results showed:
a. Decrease of cholesterol by 26.5%
b. Decrease of B-lipoproteins by 25.1%
c. Decrease of triglycerides by 32.1%
No negative reactions were found in the kidneys, the liver and other organs. No side effects were found.”
Since Modifilan is a commercial product, the usual "caveat emptor" is likely to apply. It may be as effective (or perhaps more effective) and a lot cheaper to buy and consume the raw brown Laminaria seaweed itself.
"Enzymes substantially reduce the occurrence of metastases and the recurrence of cancer. They make malignant tissues more sensitive to radiation, and at the same time, reduce pain and other side effects of radiation. When used in conjunction with surgery, they reduce postoperative pain and hemorrhage." (excerpted from alkalizeforhealth.net/cancerpain.htm)

Do a search for anti-radiation homeopathic remedies, “homeopathic remedy antagonists” etc. (there are both "drainage" and opposing formulas) that are said to work to remedy the harmful effects of ionizing and other radiation (radium, uranium, plutonium).
