Supplements You Need on Hand to Treat Radiation Sickness When SHTF

A mechanical or technical error could occur at a nuclear energy plant, resulting in a meltdown. We could be targeted with a nuclear bomb. Gas leaks from deep within the earth could release radiation. While it's true that harmful, even deadly, radiation could come from a variety of places, it's also true that you can protect yourself from the effects of radiation poisoning with some easily-attained supplements.

Four Proven Supplements for Treating Radiation Sickness
Of all the organs in your body, your thyroid tends to be one of the most sensitive to radiation damage (second only to the kidneys). It readily absorbs the radioactive form of iodine, known as iodine-131, which is a known byproduct of nuclear fission. The best way to prevent this exposure, is by supplementing with normal healthy iodine, which will push the iodine-131 out of your thyroid.
This crystalline substance is naturally found in volcanic ash, and has been used for decades to clean up radioactive particles from nuclear facilities. It can also be used to absorb these harmful particles from your body. It’s tasteless and non-toxic, and can bind to Uranium-238, Caesium-137, and Strontium-90.
Bentonite Clay
When mixed with water, bentonite clay creates a powerful negative charge that is ideal for bonding with radioactive particles, as well as other pollutants like pesticides and heavy metals. Although there is a wide selection of bentonite clays on the market, if you’re looking for clays that you can eat, make sure you find one that is advertised as “food grade.”
Not only does it absorb Caesium-137, Potassium-40, and Strontium-90, but it can also play a key role in regenerating tissue that is damaged by these substances. Children living around the Chernobyl plant were given 5 gram doses of spirulina every day for several weeks, and were found to be in excellent health afterward.

Knowing what radioactive materials are being leeched into the air or water is crucial to using these supplements accurately. If you are taking iodine but the radioactive material in your system is Potassium-40, your efforts will be in vain.Keep informed with an emergency radio or through the news; which will likely provide you with the necessary information to medicate properly. It's also important not to over-supplement, which is damaging to the thyroid and is quite common in nuclear scares.

    Really? I guess I don’t see where you come to that conclusion. If only the least powerful 100 nuclear weapons (say Pakistan and India) were detonated the death toll on the planet would be a meer 2 billion in the first five years. Rainfall would drop by over 4%, the ozone would lose about 25% of it’s protective layer increasing cancer exposures, the first two years alone would be a 2-3 degree drop with a reduction of 24-40 days of growing. Rainwater would be contaminated for up to three to seven years once the 25 tones of carbon are spewed into the upper atmosphere from the detonation of just 100 of the weakest out of the estimated 15000 – 19000 including an estimated 7800 megaton which are at least 100 times more powerful then the above 100. DNA from crops like corn would be destroyed and mutated, animal deaths and lack of pollination would wipe out mankind within 10-15 years at most. If more than that happens, what planet are you moving to, cause you’re delusional if you think your bunker and two year supply of rations will make you live on a planet that can’t sustain life anymore.

    You needs to study about nuclear war and “fall out”. It’s more survivable than you think.

    Actually informative. I’ve been told all my life that only iodine is good for radiation exposure which sucks….I’m allergic to iodine. Now I know that there are other things I CAN take.

    The only radiation sickness you can”treat” by yourself is mild thyroid poisoning. It can be done, medically, only with iodide or iodine. If you have poisoning beyond this or in other organs, especially liver-pancreas-brain, you’re in world of hurt and need to try and find hospital grade medical help.

    Iodide is not the only treatment, but is definitely the only PROVEN treatment recorded per medical testing. Preventative in terms of reason is a form of treatment (such as Vitamin C to the common cold) – where many other natural substances also boost the immune system.
    Yet, I will herein support your comment as a safeguard for readers. Placebo efforts will not save lives where radiation is concerned. This is not “there’s no right or wrong method” illnesses.
    Readers must realize that time is critical, and mistakes in dosage or estimating exposure levels is the razors edge between life and death.
    Omit not the post for it’s helpful content or intention – simply be aware that relying on alternative treatments is much like taking lozenges for bronchial pneumonia (recipe for disaster). On the other side of the coin, using potassium iodide habitually is unsafe and wistful. It’s more important to be well versed in diagnosing radiation poisoning, and also possess a means of measuring the ambient levels (Geiger counter/rfs strips) Good looking out, Douglas – posts as these are often misleading even though they circumvent factual information.

    Be very very careful Nikky…
    And be advised, that once poisoned – it will severely impair judgement. Self diagnosis is difficult once the illness has shown symptoms.
