With the disaster taking place in Japan it has left everyone terrified of the effects of harmful radiation. If you are not up to date on the issue, there has been a confirmation that small doses of radiation have reached the Midwest. On the West coast, radiation has been found in cow’s milk in very small doses.
We do not believe there is reason to panic, we believe in being prudent about preparing ourselves for radiation exposure to trickle through the environment, and as it does, it presents an increased toxic load to what we already experience.
The good news is that there is a safe and effective treatment widely available that prevents harm from exposure to radioactive iodine. It is the
use of nonradioactive, inorganic iodine. That is the form of iodine that has been researched and shown to help with exposure to radioactive iodine. Research suggests around 13 mg/day to help prevent approximately 96%of radioactive iodine from binding to the thyroid gland. That is the approximate dosage of iodine ingested daily by the Japanese. This is over 100x the average daily dose ingested by Americans.
Please keep in mind it is not just the thyroid gland that is at risk with exposure to radioactive iodine. The breasts, ovaries, uterus, prostate, skin,
and other organs all bind and require iodine for optimal functioning. In fact, every cell in our body requires iodine for optimal functioning. Therefore, if we are iodine deficient, exposure to radioactive iodine can potentially result in damage to all the cells of the body. Almost 95% of patients are deficient in iodine.
With all of the high demand for Iodine, people are forgetting that there are cleansing super foods such as chlorella and spirulina that have
been used for many years now to help clear radiation exposure and quickly flush radioactive substances from the body. Micronized chlorella contains ample amounts of detoxifying and neutralizing agents to eliminate many
We are recommending our patients to take potassium iodide and micronized chlorella to aid the body in its detoxification processes during
the next few weeks to months. Until the radiation exposure threat has been decreased, it is important to protect your body from this toxin. Ask us more about ways to help the body with this new radiation threat from Japan.
