Since sending out my comprehensive radiation blog on March 28th, events have continued to unfold. While it is very difficult to get accurate radiation exposure information from the media, no news does not mean radiation exposure is not happening. Authorities have now decided that this event is no longer equivalent to the Three Mile Island incident (a category 5), but that the event has been upgraded to the highest level, a level 7 disaster, which is the worst level, and at least on the par with Chernobyl. The Fukushima complex actually has at least six nuclear reactors and six fuel ponds, making its potential radiation exposure equivalent to 8 nuclear reactors. It has had three documented meltdowns so far. It is now believed that the current crisis is 1,000 times worse than ever anticipated by the nuclear reactor builders, and has already exceeded Chernobyl by 10%. Instead of a one time Chernobyl blast, it is a steady leak that they estimate will take a minimum of 3 months to gain control of.
This may prove to be the largest nuclear disaster in the history of the world. Over 1,300 fission products (as one would get from a nuclear bomb explosion) have come out of the Fukushima nuclear complex. Radioactive nano-products are highly charged and accumulate in raindrops. It is of great concern that there were unusual and intense rains for up to ten days in California’s Los Angeles and San Francisco areas during the region’s dry season, which seemed perfectly timed to amplify the concentration of radioactivity into the water system. The radiation of I-131 in the rainwater outside San Francisco was measured at 18,100 times above allowable levels. In Pennsylvania they are currently measuring I-131 in the water at 3,300 times above federal standards.
The radiation that is being measured in general from the Fukushima release includes I-131, Cesium 134, Cesium 137, Uranium 238, and Xenon 133. Vietnam, which is 4,000 km away from the Fukushima reactor is now reporting an increase in U-238 in pine needles. Radiation, in general, has been found 300 times higher in the US milk supply. Nuclear radiation in Hawaiian milk has been found to be 2,033% higher than permissible levels. Radiation in milk has already been reported in Phoenix, AZ, Spokane, WA, Montpellier, VT, as well as in, Los Angeles, CA. Abnormally higher levels of radiation, in general, have been reported in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Niagra Falls, Denver, Detroit, Trenton, Oakridge, Cincinnati, Pittsburg, and Boise are all reporting elevated radiation levels.
Side effects of radiation exposure include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue, fever, loss of appetite, and skin damage (swelling, itching, redness, and hair loss). Long-term effects show a decrease in IQ, an increase in mental illness (as fat tissues in the brain are oxidized by radiation), and cancer. The rate of mental illness, particularly depression, has also been connected to proximity to nuclear testing and depleted uranium exposure.
The US has the highest percentage of mental illness at 26.4% of population. France is at an 18% depression rate, and may have the most nuclear plants of any country in the world. Brain tissue is affected by radiation, which causes by free radical damage of DNA and destruction of brain cell membranes.
Radioactive uranium is particularly attracted to DNA, and so it is particularly damaging. Research is also clear that uranium particles are capable of long distance travel. Not only does I-131 affect the thyroid gland, but also breasts, ovaries, uterus, prostate, because all these organs need iodine to operate optimally. As I pointed out before, almost all major radiation medical experts agree that there are no safe levels of radiation exposure.
As a holistic physician looking at patterns appearing all over the globe, it would appear that increased radiation exposure from several sources, “forced” vaccinations, chem-trails, GMO’s and excessive use of psychotropic drugs, especially in children, all weaken the immune system and decrease and impair brain function. These effects impair our ability to transcend the bio-computer mind, and thus prevent our collective evolution of consciousness on the planet. This entire world pattern evokes an eerie feeling that there is more at play here than meets the superficial eye.
The good news is that we have ways to protect ourselves. Although my March 28th list was more complex, on popular request I am providing a simpler, more condensed list based on the six strategies I previously outlined.
One radiation protective strategy is competitive inhibition, which means that when you have plenty of healthy minerals in the body, they keep the radioactive particles from affecting particular organs. I-131 is one of our big immediate concerns, and I am recommending a new form of colloidal singlet, scalar wave prepared iodine called Illumodine, which is a 2% solution and it 100% absorbed. It is the best iodine in the world. When you order this you will get the recommended dose. Other sources of iodine include 4-10 kelp tablets per day to build up iodine levels. It is estimated by some medical experts that approximately 13 mg daily will give 96% protection from I-131. This will protect your thyroid. In addition iodine supplementation also removes toxins like heavy metals (i.e. mercury) from the body. It also neutralizes free radicals. Full iodine sufficiency has been shown to increase IQ by up to 13.5 points in a medical analysis from 17 clinical studies. It takes about 4 months at 15 drops, 3 times daily, to reach full iodine sufficiency. Iodine is the most potent killer of viruses, bacteria, and fungi in the world. It also regulates estrogen production and is involved with protection of hormones to stabilize mental health, control weight, and increases our ability to fight infections. It also helps with food allergies. It is estimated that somewhere between 72% to 99% of people in the world are iodine deficient, so not only is iodine protective against Iodine 131, but it extremely good for building ones health. It is also known to be spiritually elevating. Scientific evidence as old as 1953, shows that the thyroid even controls the pituitary gland and, thus, is the master gland of the body. Connected with the fifth chakra, it mediates between the mind and the heart. Its butterfly shield shape is a symbol of transformation and protection.
There is one caveat to using iodine. It is such a potent detoxifier that people may have a healing crisis, so go slowly with it. An iodine healing crisis looks the same as iodine toxicity making it hard to distinguish between them. We do have a reasonable approach to this. Because 72%-99% of the world population is iodine deficient, it is best to consider a healing crisis before iodine toxicity, but we cannot discount bio-chemical individuality and toxicity response. These detox or toxicity symptoms include rapid heartbeat, itching skin, fatigue, skin outbreaks, skin swelling, swelling of the salivary glands, metallic taste, burning mouth and throat, sore teeth and gums, head cold symptoms, and upset stomach. Other symptoms include headache sweaty palms, diarrhea (particularly if you have parasites). If you get these symptoms, stop iodine immediately and wait till all symptoms subside (usually 3-4 days) before resuming with a lower dosage. There has been no documentation of death from natural iodine. It is documented that one person, who ingested 100,000 times the recommended amount, had an uneventful recovery after a few days. A few people are also allergic, and these allergies may present as fever and joint pain, swelling of face and body, and even severe shortness of breath. Some of these are also symptoms of overactive thyroid. Paradoxically, I know of two cases of people with hyperthyroid, which is a deregulation phenomenon, who were cured using Illumodine. However, I would not recommend taking iodine supplements unless under supervision if one has a hyperthyroid condition. The point is that in this time of crisis, with I-131 radiation exposure in the world, it is important to take iodine as protection, but use caution and increase the dosage slowly to maximum. In response to the crisis, the Tree of Life Natural Pharmacy is offering Illumodineat half the price it is selling for in Hawaii. You may purchase it from us at $26.00 per bottle and at $22.00 per bottle when you order a quantity of 12 or more.
Radiation protection strategy number 2 is chelation. I recommend eating as much sea vegetables as possible. Natural Cellular Defense (NCD) is the best chelator protection (except for protection against I-131, during the first 8 days). It is best to take NCD at 10 drops 4 times daily. Because of the crisis at hand, the Tree of Life Natural Pharmacy is offering Natural Cellular Defense at a 44% discount until the threat of radiation poisoning passes, which unfortunately may be months.
Radiation protection strategy number 3 is to increase antioxidant intake. Radiation creates free radicals, which is the major mechanism by which it causes sickness and decreases lifespan and death. I recommend Nano-Green Tea at 1/2 teaspoon twice daily. I also recommend takingMega Hydrate at 2 capsules 2 times daily.
Radiation protection strategy number 4 is to take anti-radiation food and herbs. Spirulina,chlorella, E3Live, and bee pollen are effective against radiation. Siberian ginseng, chaparral,aloe vera taken at 1 oz twice daily are also effective. Gotu kola and gingko billoba are also recommended. I also recommend our new marine phytoplankton powder called Alpha 3CMPat ½ teaspoon once daily.
Radiation protection strategy number 5 is to eat an organic and plant-source-only cuisine. Eating low on the food chain significantly reduces your exposure to toxins in general, as well as to radiation particles. Avoid all animal products including dairy, meat, fish, and chicken as these animals concentrate radioactive particles in their bodies 30 times more than are concentrated in plants. This situation makes the point that a plant source only cuisine is not only the diet for the future expansion of consciousness, but for the immediate healthy survival in the present.
Radiation protection strategy number 6 is political action to both close old nuclear facilities, (which become more dangerous after 40 years of operation), and prevent the building of proposed nuclear plants. Avoid back-scatter x-ray devices. Doctors Otis Brawley, Carl Bilimoria, Len Lichtenfeld, and Dong Kim (neurosurgeon for Congresswomen Gabrielle Giffords), all make a point of avoiding the backscatter devices in airports as they all feel there is no safe dose of radiation. Actually the FBI, the Soviet Union, Iraq, and Afghanistan all use bomb and explosive powder smelling dogs, which are far more sensitive and accurate than the backscatter devices. The backscatter devices are both poorly monitored and concentrate the radiation in the skin rather than spread it throughout the body, as well as not working as effectively as dogs.
Radiation in the water is a problem as no system, as of yet, fully protects from radiation. However, it appears that reverse osmosis (RO) water units and also water distillation can make a significant difference when combined with ion exchange filtration. Soon we’ll be carrying zeolite shower filters at the Tree of Life Store, to protect you in travel or at home. We are looking for the best in house water filters to protect from radiation in water. I believe we’ll solve this problem in the near future with a special form of zeolite filter we are researching. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends RO to remove radioactive isotopes that emit beta particle radiation; however, I-131 is still present in water as a dissolved gas and RO does not remove it. We can wash our vegetables thoroughly. It helps. Activated carbon filters also remove I-131, unfortunately carbon filters ultimately get clogged with radiation. Ion exchange filters used in water softeners are good for removing cesium 137. The optimal system would be a combination of filter devices. At the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center we use ion exchange and reverse osmosis filtration so our water is relatively safe.
In conclusion, we have ways to protect ourselves. It is important that we as human inhabitants of the earth look at our lifestyles and stop living as if we have a right to disregard the laws of nature. It is important to actively challenge public agencies that support anti-human and anti-Planet Earth dissonant activities. It is dysfunctional to mess things up and then pray for divine help. The Divine is not about to exonerate our imbalanced lifestyles on the earth. I call for us to examine our lives and contemplate how we can bring ourselves back into harmony with the living planet. Stay tuned for an anti-radiation visualization and a discussion of radiation as the frequency of dark light. In the next few days a worldwide radiation meditation to nullify radiation will be released.
May your days be filled with health, peace, and harmony with the living planet and yourself,
