As the crisis in Japan unfolds, there is uncertainty about possible radiation that may affect Japan and the world.
Potassium iodide pills have been sold out at many of the American distributors. Potassium iodide helps protect a person from the harmful effects of radioactive iodine by blocking it's uptake into the thyroid. One possible serious effect of exposure to large doses of radioactive iodine is thyroid cancer.
There are some natural foods that will help if you have radiation exposure. Here is a list with some explanations.
Leafy greens: stimulate the colon and help the liver discharge radiation from the body.
Fermented foods: have the same effect as leafy greens. These include miso, natural cucumber pickles, and fermented sauerkraut. The best quality pickles are homemade or found in the refrigerated section of the natural food store. They do not have vinegar as an ingredient.
Avoid or limit sugars. These will ferment in the gut and interfere with elimination
Avoid excessive amounts of whole wheat flour products. The excess fibre will interfere with gut bacteria, hampering elimination.
Avoid hard and dry grains such as granola, and dried cereal. This kind of fibre creates bad bacteria hampering the gut.
Eat moderate amounts of grains and cooked vegetables, small amounts of beans regularly and fish along with some cooked fruit, healthy fats and natural seasonings. If you eat other forms of animal foods, be moderate. Excessive amounts will interfere with digestion
Limit raw foods. Raw fibre is harder to digest and will hamper elimination.
Good quality saturated fats block the toxicity of radioactive ions such as avocado and coconut oil. Increase these in times of a nuclear disaster.
Fatty fish: fat soluble vitamins in fatty fish like wild salmon or sardines aid elimination. Eat more often in a disaster.
Kelp and Kombu along with wakame in your daily soup will aid in elimination of heavy metals.
Miso has a substance that will remove radiation from the body. Prepare soups and season with a strong taste of miso if there is nuclear disaster. Drink 3 cups per day.
Umeboshi Plums: Take 1-2 daily. This will stimulate the liver and colon to eliminate radiation.
