(Pernicious Radiation Attacking You)

Radioactive fallout and contamination from the recent nuclear disaster at Fukushima Daiichi power complex in Japan is potentially a worldwide problem. The United States and other countries are ill-equipped to protect against radioactive iodine-131, caesium-137 and other forms of radiation by-products.

It’s well established that exposure to large doses of radiation can cause death within a few hours or days while lesser exposures may lead to many different types of cancers including; thyroid, breast, skin, stomach, bone, blood, brain, lung and others.

Conventional intervention should always be employed as means of mitigating radiation exposure such as that being reported about in Japan. Skin decontamination is managed through frequent and through bathing of water to the affected areas.

Although there is no known method available to completely prevent exposure to radiation from being absorbed into the human body, supplements in the form of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, herbal, homeopathic medicines, amino acids, probiotics and natural hormone(s) may provide some level of protection in the form of free radical reduction and radiation detoxification. Additionally, certain foods and detoxification baths are worth consideration.

In light of the current acute crisis in Japan, the world is focused on nuclear radiation/fallout. However, what many people may not realize is that insidious and casual forms of ionizing radiation are also dangerous as our exposure levels increase. I’m referring to radiation exposure from first and secondhand cigarette smoke, X-rays, CT scans, cancer radiation therapy, radon gas and cosmic radiation from taking jet airplane flights.

The following list of conservative modalities is believed to have radioprotective effects and may provide some level of cellular detoxification.

  1. Potassium iodide (KI) tablets – available in select health and drugs stores. However, as of the writing of this document, it may be difficult to obtain potassium iodide due to a strong public demand. Potassium iodate (KIO3) tablets are generally less expensive and have a longer shelf life.
  2. EDTA chelation – consult a MD, DO or ND provider experienced in chelation therapy
  3. Melatonin – protects every cell in the body against ionizing radiation damage, unlike iodide which acts exclusively on the thyroid gland.
  4. AHCC ( Active Hexose Correlated Compound) – this shiitake mushroom derived botanical has potent free radical quenching capabilities
  5. Chlorella tablets or powder. This is a fresh water single-celled green algae derived plant is believed to possess radioprotective properties. It’s therapeutic affects come from its ability to neutralize damaging free radicals that would otherwise damage cells and tissues
  6. Spirulina tablets or powder. After the Chernobyl nuclear accident in Russia, spirulina supplementation was purportedly able to reduce urine radioactivity levels by fifty percent in approximately three weeks.
  7. Vitamin D - Radiological health expert Daniel Hayes, Ph.D., of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene suggests that a form of vitamin D could be one of our body's main protections against radiation, specifically low levels of radiation. Writing in the International Journal of Low Radiation, Hayes explains that calcitriol (vitamin D3), the active form of vitamin D, may protect us from background radiation and could be used as a safe protective agent before or after a low-level nuclear incident. Hayes argues that vitamin D, and in particular its biologically active form – vitamin D3, could be the key ingredient in protection against radiation
  8. Reduced glutathione – is an amino acid believed to reduce free-radical damage to DNA and prevents depletion of other antioxidants.
  9. Causticum, Ginseng and Ruta graveolens – can be useful homeopathic medicines. These and others can be used if a radioactive release occurs and maybe helpful in counteracting exposure effects
  10. Epson salt, baking soda and clay baths. These long used detoxification baths are considered safe, effective and inexpensive when it comes to eliminating harmful substances from the body including radiation

Lastly, many readily available foods should be considered as a staple when it comes to systemic radiation contamination management and include; all cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, collards greens, cabbage, turnips, bok choy, and kale. Additionally, fermented soy products and sea vegetables should be frequently consumed including; miso, kelp, wakame, brown rice and kombu.

To your good health,

The Top 9&10 ways to relieve migraine headaches
If you want something done well, do it yourself, according to the popular saying.

[Insertions by Dr. Bob Martin]

9. Consider alternative therapies such as biofeedback or relaxation training, both of which have shown beneficial effects for migraine sufferers, particularly if you're opposed to medication or unable to use medication.
8. Consider approaching your health care provider about preventive drugs for recurrent headaches. [Better yet, find an alternative health care providers ie...Chiropractic Physician, Naturopathic Physician, Acupuncturist, etc...who can provide true natural preventive measures.
7. Find the treatment that works best for you--if a drug provides no relief after three subsequent attacks, ask for a new prescription. [If one form of toxin doesn't work try, try again.... that's science.]

Have a backup "rescue" medication, in case your regular medication doesn't work; [A novel idea might be to try and find the cause of the headaches and remove them. This way you won't need a rescue drug.]


Use pain medication in moderation--overuse can trigger "rebound" headaches; [Did you get that? Headache drugs cause headaches. Now repeat after me, headache drugs cause............]

4. Locate an experienced, understanding physician, who is willing to work with you to find the best treatment. [No matter what type of treatment it is, providing, that it's safe and effective.]
3. Inform your health care provider of the extent to which the headaches affect your daily life;--Treat your migraines with appropriate medications--over-the- counter for less severe attacks, or prescription drugs for moderate to severe migraines. [ Consider taking such nutritional aids such as magnesium, vitamin B-2, 5 htp tryptophane, and omega 3 fatty acids and feverfew, prior to going full blown.]
2. Become aware of how often headaches occur as well as the factors that trigger them, such as certain foods or sleeping habits; [At least now, allopaths are finally realizing the obvious connection between headaches including migraines and structural stresses, that are generated with adverse sleeping positions.]
1. Avoid such triggers, once you become aware of them. [Visit your Chiropractic Physician and other natural health care providers to maintain a healthy structure.]

Top 9&10 Health hints you can do in your kitchen:

1. Throw your tomatoes against the wall to see if they bruise- non-genetically modified tomatoes bruise.
2. If your eating fruit cocktail, throw out the red dye maraschino cherry-it's cancer producing. In fact, throw out the whole fruit cocktail and eat fresh fruit instead.
3. Wash your hands before handling bananas and other fruits that need to be peeled before eating. You can transfer chemical residues to the fruit otherwise.
4. Wash all the outsides of the cans you are about to open. Dried rodent droppings (feces) can be transferred to the inside contents of the can. In addition, who handled the can before you purchased it?
5. Don't store vitamins in the refrigerator. Moisture builds up when it has placed in and out of cold and warm environments. What this does is it speeds up the deterioration.
6. Take the edge of a knife and try scrapping the surface of your fruit (e.g. Apples, etc.) If you notice a white waxy mound pilling up, you've got wax! Next time purchase organic fruits and vegetable.
7. Take all your store bought spices like pepper etc., and dump them in your garden as compost. Most all-commercial spice has been irradiated. Prepare your own spices at home or when purchasing them from a health food store make sure they haven't been zapped.
8. If you have artificial fluorescent lighting in your kitchen replace them with full spectrum vita lights or grow lights.
9. Make sure the chairs you sit down on at the kitchen table have proper posture support and are comfortable. If you are stressed biomechanically while trying to eat it could impact adversely on your ability to enjoy and digest your food.
