3/15/11 Los Angeles Times Story regarding potential for low level radiation exposure to crops and farm animals:
On a personal note:
I haven't bought Potassium Iodide radiation - thyroid - instead preventively,
I found in GNC Prenatal NO IRON has potassium iodide in it – not the same amounts as over the counter Potassium Iodide (Never take Potassium Iodide on its own - full strength unless instructed to do so, it will cause thyroid damage). Check the label. No iron especially for men in this case. I was also checking out the GNC Men's Mega for potassium iodide.
PREVENTION: I am taking kelp daily. Whole Foods carries Kelp and Kelp tablets, (check with your doctor if you have a thyroid condition), Spirulina in yogurt, and using kelp in my cooking. I have also noticed my iron levels have been lower and I have been taking an herbal iron when especially weary.
Baking soda and or salt (iodine/iodide - table salt) to wash my skin and when I wash my clothes I use baking soda. Salt or baking soda baths. Sam's has 7 or 10# bags of baking soda. The salt and baking soda has to do with the minerals in the salt binding to the electrons.
I listen to my body as it will start nudging me about how and when to take care of my skin and clothes. My experiences of late has been a burning feeling on my skin that is exposed when I am outside especially if it is RAINING. Some times it feels like pin pricks. When I feel this I go in the house, take off all the clothes and put them in the wash, and take a salt scrub shower and sometimes a bath.
I use green clay or dead sea minerals on the skin - facials, arms, neck, areas exposed if I need to be outside during peak levels. There are so many other herbs and things you can do, talk with each other, ask for guidance, do research, the answers for how to move through this time are all experiencing this together on the planetary level and we each have something to share with each other that will help.
Most of all, I change my clothes often if I need to be outside, putting them right into the wash. Most of all I pay attention to my intuition, how my skin feels, am I feeling a headache when outdoors and follow the monitors online.
I find that Vitamin. C, Wheat Grass, Solar brand Kidney Cleanse, Spirulina (repairs the DNA especially in cases of radiation poisoning) Plenty of bottled water on hand, Chlorophyll, parsley, cilantro bind to heavy metals. I have also found buffered Vitamin C to be easier on my stomach I am also finding it important to keep my immune system functioning well with plenty of antioxidants.
Unlike other radiation experiences we have had on this planet, we have not had prolonged experiences of radiation being leaked into the atmosphere and finding its way into the jet stream, the rain and eventually our crops.
Planetary Note: Depending on how long this crisis will last... this free online book has some excellent information about radiation: Survival Skills for Nuclear War ... just take out the word war and insert "fallout".
Planetary Dietary Update: I have been craving fresh Garlic for the last 2 days. Have been cutting up whole heads (not just 1 clove!) letting the cut pieces sit for 10 minutes, then putting them in a glass bowl covering the cut pieces with Virgin Olive Oil. (The same can be done with fresh Rosemary) After it sits for a few hours I take spoonfuls and pour it over fresh Italian bread and eat it. We have gone through 2 heads in 2 days. I have also noticed my body calling for more Iron (I take a veg. brand - Whole Foods) with Vitamin C - 1000 mgs. I have been taking salt baths with baking soda in them and Rosemary oil. When I shower, I have been mixing the soap with salt and salt scrubbing my body. Trust your body! Your body will tell you what it wants to keep balanced - if your craving a particular food and its not so healthy, see what's in the food nutritionally that your body may need - i.e. calcium or magnesium, iodine (fish, etc). The body is infinitely wise and designed to self heal.
Coffee Enemas: I know there are naysayers out there, I have read your articles. I also know from personal experience that they work. Just puttin it out there...
You decide... it's your body.
