Healing Your Energy Meridians with Biofield Therapy

psychedelicTonight on Truther Girls radio first hour, 10:00-11:00 pm EST, I will be joined by Jeanine, who is a certified Nutritionist and Health Educator specializing in biofield therapy. We will be talking about energy blockages on your body’s meridians and will be addressing questions such as:

- What are Chi and energy meridians?
– How do scars, injuries and even tattoos interfere with them?
– How does this lead to disease?
– How can acupuncture, mud packs, magnetic clays, castor oil packs and nutrition re-establish the free flow of Chi across these meridians?

Accused Criminal Becomes First Jesuit Pope

ITCCSSecond hour my guest will be Kevin Annett from the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State itccs.org
The ITCCS is a common law de jure court made up of ordinary citizens, and which has the backing of a Belgian court, and has issued arrest warrants for former Pope Joseph Ratzinger, the Queen of England , and several others including now the new Pope Jorge Mario Bergoglio for their roles in crimes against humanity. Kevin will be telling us about the new Pope Francis and his shady history and involvement in human trafficking in Argentina during the ‘Dirty War’ years of 1976-1983. He will also be giving us an update on the proceedings of the ITCCS legal procedings.

Listen live from 11:00 pm – midnight EST.

Medicine Without Medicine

How can you cure illness without any drugs, herbs or other medicine whatsoever? By our understanding, this shouldn’t be possible, and yet it apparently is.
See the video below where Gregg Braden talks about using metaphysics to eliminate health problems and how this is even being done at a hospital in Japan, with success at removing even cancerous tumors.

Please also see this interesting account of a woman, Anita Moorjani, who was completely healed of end-stage lymphoma after having a near-death experience.

One author who is known for her work on metaphysical cause of disease is Louise Hay and you can see her website at louisehay.com

Many websites address the topic of how your mind/soul manifests illness in your body as a result of issues that are not actually physical in nature. Here is an example of a list of connections made between illnesses and metaphysical/emotional causes.
http://www.paganspath.com/healing/ailments.htm

I realize that to anyone who considers themselves a Christian, the mere mention of the word ‘pagan’ might be a turn off but I remember that the renowned pastor Cindy Jacobs stated in her book ‘Women of Destiny’ that she was healed of an ovarian or uterine growth by faith, at the altar, and that as she was healed she realized that this tumor was a manifestation of negative emotions she held on to that were associated with her relationship with her father. Christians are metaphysical beings just as anyone else, and we manifest disease in the same way as everyone else.

I don’t know whether any such list as the one above is particularly accurate. It seems to me that the best way to know what is causing your illness would be to examine yourself and your life and to consider and pray about what is making you sick and ask God to remove that from you. For example, if worry has caused you to become susceptible to colds, you could turn your worry over to God, affirming that you trust in Him and in the path He is leading you on, and that you renounce your negative thoughts and emotions that are holding you back and causing disease in your body. Let go of all negative emotions such as anger, resentments, fear, and worry. They are worse for you than GMOs and vaccines. Receive everything in your life as a gift.

Evidence Vaccines are Harmful

The following was written by Lizzi Hollanders in response to a question about where to find information on evidence of the dangers of vaccines. It’s such good information that I am putting it here for all of us for future reference:

I encourage people to conduct your own research and not base choices on other people’s opinions. There is a great deal of information and misinformation out there. If people want to have an opinion on the vaccination dialogue then please back up statements with facts and citations to reliable and valid sources. Spreading fear and anxiety only magnifies the anxiety and does not create a supportive environment in which to really assess the facts and make a choice based on what is best suited to you and your family.

As for ourselves this is how we came to our decision and I offer it as an example of how to make an informed choice, but in no way suggest it is the “right” or the “only” choice.

After extensive research we have decided that there is no rational basis upon which to vaccinate. the entire premise of vaccinations is deeply flawed, the risks far outweigh the benefits and the dearth of reliable, valid and consistent scientific data in tandem with the incredible profiteering conducted by the Pharmaceutical corporations makes the entire vaccine industry (and it is an industry as it it the greatest source of profit to these companies http://centerforvaccineethicsandpolicy.wordpress.com/2010/01/17/global-vaccines-revenues-projected-to-more-than-double-by-2016/) deeply suspect and guilty of extreme skulduggery.

A robust immune system can handle almost all disease and process it so that the body recovers and the results in life long immunity—far superior to potential partial immunity and/or destroyed immunity which wanes over time in tandem with the endless negative sequalae of auto-immune disorders that can result from the over injection of toxins into children’s bodies.

Below are some links i find helpful in helping me elucidate the facts as they pertain to vaccination. the fact is this is a very heated debate filled with extreme ideological differences such that i believe it is often an unbridgeable divide and thus not worth engaging. it is simply up to each individual to make a choice, to use informed consent and exorcise fear from the decision making process. any choice made in fear will result in doubt and uncertainty. the only path through this mire is to gain, gather and process knowledge. information is power and that is how this battle is being waged.. i have spent the better part of three years researching the tropic and for me I am satisfied, based on the current condition of our life, where we live and our health that any benefits from vaccinations do not outweigh the risks.

here are some links to resource I have found most helpful. First though a book called “Childhood Vaccination: Answers to your questions, by Katia Bailetti” was an excellent resource to starting out on this journey of becoming informed and getting out of the dogma and ideology. the books break down each vaccine, it’s ingredient, the pros and the cons of having the disease, the pros and the cons of getting vaccinated and the degree of partial immunity and the time it lasts. it is well worth the read, it is neutral in its standpoint and accessible in that it is written in average english – not academic.

http://www.amazon.ca/Childhood-Vaccinations-2nd-Answers-Questions/dp/192656913X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1341154045&sr=8-1

anyway, here are links i find great.
http://www.relfe.com/vaccine.html

here is a link that gives a graphic of the increase of vaccines introduced to the vaccine schedule from 1983 to 2010 – it makes me shudder when i look at it. Canada follows an almost identical schedule. http://img641.imageshack.us/img641/7033/vaccinek.jpg

Here is a link to a table that shows a variety of vaccine schedules around the world http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3170075/table/table2-0960327111407644/

This is a great one for people who want to engage with pro-vax people. http://www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com/2010/01/if-you-are-in-support-of-vaccinations/

Here is a link of a parent who says these questions need to be answered before she will even consider vaccinating her children. http://lifeonthefrancofarm.blogspot.com/2011/06/6-points-i-would-have-to-believe-before.html

here is a link to an interview given by an ex-vaccine developer who discusses the series of deceptions used by Pharamceutical companies to sell vaccines to the public http://healthimpactnews.com/2011/ex-vaccine-developer-reveals-lies-the-vaccine-industry-is-built-upon-in-interview/

here are some links on the Hep B vaccine. it’s one i consider one of the nmost dangerous and insane of all vaccines http://www.neurology.org/content/72/10/873.abstract

http://www.naturodoc.com/library/bio-war/HepB.htm

http://www.thinktwice.com/hepb.htm

And this is a fantastic article that explains how the human immune system works prior to vaccination and what happens to the immune system after vaccination… a must read for anyone http://www.vaccinationcouncil.org/2011/06/10/basics-of-the-human-immune-system-prior-to-introduction-of-vaccines-are-vaccines-turning-our-children%E2%80%99s-immune-systems-inside-out/

and this article recently came out which i think is fantastic – discusses why children don’t regress before age of 1 and examines how vaccination toxicity impacts the immune system http://www.vaccinationnews.com/20110110AutisticRegressionYazbakFE

as for the whole whooping cough thing. First of all, as was seen in California, 1 in 3 people had been fully vaccinated for whooping cough but caught it anyway… this is a severe vaccine failure, plus when considering the serious risks associated with the vaccine the cons completely outweigh any pros http://www.nafwa.org/general-nutrition/alternative-nutrition/29005-whats-really-to-blame-for-californias-whooping-cough-epidemic.html

here is a link to a resource examining the connection between SIDS and the whooping cough vaccine http://www.vaccinationnews.com/sids-vaccines-and-vaers-follow

and here is a link to some information examinig the connection between whooping cough vaccine and childhood allergies like asthma, eczema, hay fever…etc http://www.whale.to/v/asthma3.html & http://vran.org/about-vaccines/specific-vaccines/diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis-hib-vaccine/whooping-cough-the-disease-and-the-vaccine/

Here is another article that helps tease apart the myth that vaccination equals immunity
http://www.garynull.com/home/dr-gary-null-phd-and-nancy-ashley-ms-vmd-the-myth-that-vacci.html

And for those who really want to get into the nitty gritty here is a link of all the vaccines currently manufactured and their ingredients. It’s a worth a read and educating yourself about what exactly is being injected into your and your children’s bodies. http://www.novaccine.com/vaccine-ingredients/

Finally along with the known neurotoxic effect of mercury is an even more deadlier adjuvant agent. Aluminum.

http://gaia-health.com/gaia-blog/2012-01-14/mechanisms-of-aluminimum-adjuvant-revealed-vaccine-risks-to-children-clarified/

Aluminum is a positively charged bio-conductive element, 64 times more positive than colloidal blood products (ie. anything suspended in your blood) are negative; with the properties of a coagulant. It literally draws in all other metals & toxins in its path. When injected into deep muscle tissue or subcutaneously, this neurotoxin gets redistributed via the bloodstream (consisting of 90% water) to areas of fatty tissue (highly electrical tissues – negatively charged) throughout the body, builds up over time in these delicate centers; primarily in the Brain, Spinal cord, Myelin sheath, Meninges, cardiac cells, breasts & ovaries (in women), prostate (in men), kidneys, liver, gut & bowels.

This “sludging” is activated when Aluminum interacts with Hemoglobin in flow, in the negatively charged environment. This causes the negatively charged blood products to “attract” towards the larger, more massive positively charged Aluminum, causing clumping or “sludging”. This restricts blood flow, and it changes the Zeta Potential to change from -15mv (minus 15 milivolts) towards -10 mv (minus 10 milivolts), or possibly closer to zero. This is an increase in Zeta Potential, from a negatively charge towards neutral. (This is somewhat analogous to a change in state of water as it turns to ice – it’s a change in viscosity, affecting blood flow).

http://www.healthsentinel.com/joomla/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2598%3Astudy-clearly-demonstrates-that-aluminum-found-in-vaccines-can-cause-neurologic-damage&catid=5%3Aoriginal&Itemid=24

I sincerely hope this helps. I make no bones about the fact that I advocate for non-vaccination because I have come to know that vaccines are mostly bunk science riding on the coattails of some good science, and disseminating it’s veracity through a heavily indoctrinated culture of blind faith in public health policy and pharmaceutical companies… and that is why it is such a difficult terrain to navigate… when lies disguise themselves behind truth, it take a sharp mind and a clear heart to see the way through. good luck to everyone in making the choice that is right for you and your family.

Reiki and Metaphysics To Heal Ourselves and The World

We tend to think of our battle against NWO tyranny as a physical one to be waged with protests, strikes and the like, but it is above all a spiritual battle and our greatest weapon is our power as spiritual and metaphysical beings. On Thursday, May 10th, Natasha and I will be joined on the radio by two people whose expertise is in this area: Joanne Basilieres, from spirita.ca, who is a Reiki and Yoga practitioner and teacher, and Bernard Alvarez from thegic.org, who is a doctor of metaphysics.

Reiki for Healing

According to Joanne’s website: ‘Reiki (pronounced “ray-key”) is a natural, simple and safe, yet powerful holistic laying-on hands healing technique that uses spiritually guided universal energy, the energy which permeates our entire universe and all living things. It increases spiritual awareness and progress and is a means for each person to access the richness of his soul and discover his own great potential.
“REI” means universal, spirit or soul, and “KI” means the vital life force energy, which flows through all that is alive. Therefore the word Reiki refers to balanced Universal Life Force Energy. Reiki engages the “Ki,” which is our connection between mind, body and spirit.
Reiki is not a system of religious beliefs.’

Joanne performs Reiki healing as well as initiation to help others use the Universal Energy for their own healing and that of other people as well as to bring healing to situations. Her practice is based in Montreal, and you can contact her through her website spirita.ca for Reiki healing or initiation or for any of the other services and workshops she offers.

Join from at 2:00-3:00 pm EST to listen in on our discussion of Reiki and feel free to send us questions in the chat room or call in to talk to us live.

Rethinking Circumcision with Maurene White

Today on The Truther Girls, my guest will be Maurene White, a nurse who has been campaigning against circumcision for four decades. Maurene is the founder of farreach.org, and organization that helps to inform people about the risks of circumcision and the benefits of having a foreskin. She also helps adult men learn how to restore their foreskins and has developed an iPhone application called i4skinhealth for this purpose, which you can see and buy here at the Apple Store. 100% of proceeds from sales of the app go to research and education to assuage circumcision harms.

People tend to have strong feelings about circumcision. Some people defend it vehemently on the basis of their religious beliefs, or the beliefs that it provides health or hygiene benefits, while others oppose it just as strongly and say it is no different from female genital cutting. To me, this is a subject on a par with vaccination when it comes to the need for the public’s access to factual information on the risks versus the benefits. Just this week, two babies died as a result of circumcision at the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal, one from hemorrhage and the other from shock. Given that this procedure can sometimes result in such tragic consequences, I hope that my interview with Maurene today will help people make more informed decisions about circumcision, as it concerns their own bodies and those of their children. There is nothing worse than making an uninformed decision and later regretting it, saying “If only I had known!’. Regardless of whether you decide to circumcise or not, I want you to make the best, most informed decision and feel confident about it.

Today, we will be addressing questions such as:
– What are the true risks of medical complications from circumcision?
– Does circumcision traumatize the baby?
– Does it increase his sensitivity to pain in the long term?
– Does circumcision confer hygienic advantages?
– Has circumcision actually been shown to protect against HIV, certain cancers or other diseases?
– Is circumcision sometimes medically necessary, as in the case of phymosis?
– What are the benefits of not being circumcised?
– How can an adult man restore his foreskin?
– How can Jewish parents who do not want to circumcise reconcile this with their religious beliefs?
– How can Jewish parents cope with family pressure to circumcise?

Kangen: Water as Medicine

Today on The Truther Girls, I will be talking to Ocean, molecular hydration specialist, about Kangen water.Unlike other waters, Kangen is ionized, alkalized, and molecularly structured so that it has medicinal properties. It is the original medicinal water made by Enagic in Japan, where it has been used for over 37 years in hospitals and clinics with proven results. It is researched and approved by an eminent non-profit organization of over 6500 group of independent Japanese doctors that approve only one technology per year and Enagic is consistently picked as the top of the ionized water machine on the market for support good adult health. There have been other doctors who who have studied this water for years, and are daily finding new information about its uses and viability in assisting health.

Ocean has studied and followed experienced experts in the field of hydration for several years, such as Horst Feltzer, vascular surgeon and developer of the stent, and Hiromi Shinya, co-inventer of the colonoscopy who has done over 300,000 exams of digestive systems and specifically colon health. Both these world renowned doctors heartily approve of Kangen water as a viable element for good health. Ocean has also studied the work of many more doctors, scientist and researchers in their work on the importance of proper hydration, alkalizing foods and liquids that support good health. Their research has revealed many breakthrough findings and dramatic personal health testimonies that show there is overwhelming evidence of the power of Kangen water.

Of his own life experience, Ocean says, “Like many younger Americans I was hooked on the “meat and potatoes type diet”, with a constant yearning for better health practices through my mid life. When I finally reached the age of 60 I felt that I needed to seriously take time to study and research how to take better care of my health, as I saw the beginning signs of my own body declining. I also saw my mother quickly die of advanced stages of acidic poisoning because of massive amounts of prescription drugs, poor water, non-nutritive foods and lack of exercise. She died this year of complications of a lifetime of over acidity and lack of oxygen to her tissues and systems. Please look into what the Nobel prize winning research from Otto Warburg shows about acidity and oxygenation in diseased cells, how it is formed and it produces ill health.

Having accumulated much information on health over the years, I was then introduced to Kangen water by a good friend and this key element changed my life profoundly. My website TheWaterOf Champions.com has videos, links and an ebook that shows why this water has properties that are not found in regular water. Most people assume ordinary water to be health-giving when, in fact, most water is highly toxic to our body and causes more stress and difficulties than it helps support.

For more information please contact me at ocean@thewaterofchampions.com, get a ebook, check out the sources about the Enagic machine on YouTube. If you want to wade through the piles of B.S. about the controversy about ionized and alkaline water, please be aware that anyone can make statements for or against any topic. Enagic and Kangen water have the history and endorsement that has stood the test of time.

Much appreciation to all of the people that have gone before me, researched diligently and have witnessed personally the benefits of this water.”

Healing Tooth Decay: Making the Price Diet Work for You

Today on The Truther Girls, Ramiel Nagel, author of ‘Cure Tooth Decay’ returns to help teach us how to make the Weston A. Price diet work for us, despite our limited access to whole, natural foods.
I have been trying to follow this diet for the last couple of months, and because I have very limited access to some of the staples of the diet, I found that it was difficult and stressful to follow it. A lot of times, i would end up just not eating very much and feeling hungry and irritable. Disheartened, I told Ramiel about this, who gave me some good news: even if you can’t get everything in the diet and follow it perfectly, you have quite a lot of leeway and can make it work even within some constraints.
So today, we are going to talk about some of the difficulties with the diet and how to work around them. If you have been following the diet and having trouble with it, this information may be very useful to you.

Ramiel’s website where you can buy his book ‘Cure Tooth Decay’ is curetoothdecay.com

He will be on with me from 2:00-3:00pm EST. You can listen live at americanfreedomraido.com or download the archive from americanfreedomradio.com/TrutherGirls_11

Chat room is truthergirls.chatango.com
Call-in number if you would like to speak to Ramiel is 402-237-2525

Radiation Poisoning Help

This information was sent to me by a friend. He had gathered it all from Naturalnews.com. Given that the fallout from the reactor meltdown in Japan may spread worldwide, I thought people may find these tips helpful. Sorry about the formatting, he had just put this together for personal use.

• Rosemary Found to Offer Best Protection against Radiation Poisoning Eating a diet high in apples, citrus fruits, cruciferous vegetables, drinking red wine, and using fresh rosemary have been scientifically shown to be effective. Supplements of rosemary extract containing carnosic and rosmarinic acids are widely available. Supplements of DIM offer higher doses of one of the most potent compounds in cruciferous vegetables. Broccoli sprouts are the best source of sulphoraphane, another highly potent compound in cruciferous vegetables. Broccoli sprouts are available as supplements too. Making a pitcher of fresh vegetable juice several times a week for all family members to drink is a great way to fortify everyone against an environment that has turned against them. The juice should contain high amounts of broccoli, cabbage or other cruciferous vegetables. Adding a small slice of fresh ginger will give the juice an appealing flavor. Use only organic or fresh locally grown vegetables if they are available.

• Protect your health (and your thyroid) with potassium iodide in case of a nuclear emergency or terrorism event
• the FDA released its Guidance on Potassium Iodide (KI) as a Thyroid Blocking Agent in Radiation Emergencies, which was designed to prescribe other federal agencies’ and also local governments’ use of potassium iodide “in the event that radioactive iodine is released into the environment.”
• According to the FDA, potassium iodide’s ability to protect against radioactively-induced cancer is “well-established.” The FDA goes on to explain, “When administered in the recommended dose, KI is effective in reducing the risk of thyroid cancer in individuals or populations at risk for inhalation or ingestion of radioiodines. KI floods the thyroid with non-radioactive iodine and prevents the uptake of the radioactive molecules, which are subsequently excreted in the urine.” In other words, potassium iodide occupies the thyroid gland with “good” iodine, so that it will be too busy to absorb cancer-causing, radioactive iodine. However, as the FDA states, in order for it to be most effective, you must take the right dose of potassium iodide for your age and level of toxic exposure, within three to four hours of exposure and daily until the exposure is over.
• Given the way that potassium iodine works to prevent the thyroid gland from absorbing radioactive iodine, it is obvious that the use of it could potentially cause some negative thyroid effects. In his Complete Guide to Health and Nutrition, Gary Null warns for all potassium iodide users “to be aware that, if you suddenly deluge your perfectly normal thyroid gland with large amounts of supplementary iodine, you can inhibit its ability to produce thyroxine.” Thyroid damage from potassium iodide use is unfortunately most common in the elderly. If an elderly person has thyroidal goiter, potassium iodide can cause hyperthyroidism, according to PDR for Nutritional Supplements authors Sheldon Saul Hendle and David Rorvik. In fact, the FDA advises that “anyone over 40 should be treated with KI only if the predicted exposure is high enough to destroy the thyroid and induce lifelong hypothyroidism (thyroid deficiency).”
• As with any substance, someone who has never taken potassium iodide before may suddenly develop an allergic reaction. Usually an allergic response to potassium iodide affects the skin the most, taking the form of rashes or acne, reports to Dr. Elson M. Haas. According to an American Cancer Society statement that Professor Ralph W. Moss calls “outdated,” excessive use of potassium iodide, even without allergy, may cause pimples, swelling of the glands similar to mumps, runny eyes and nose and impotence. However, in his fairly recent book, Health and Nutrition Secrets, Dr. Russell L. Blaylock echoes the “outdated” American Cancer Society statement: “Higher doses in both adults and babies can cause a greater number of side effects and offers no further protection. In general, the side effects are mild and include swelling of the salivary glands, a metallic taste in the mouth, sore teeth and gums, gastrointestinal upset and/or skin rashes.” Though these potential side effects, in my opinion, should not be enough to dissuade you from taking potassium iodide in the event of a nuclear emergency, they should be enough to warn you not to “overdose” yourself on potassium iodide.
• On the other hand, there has also been a historical association between potassium iodide and cancer, the very disease that it is supposed to prevent. In the famous case involving anti-cancer tonic creator Harry Hoxsey, a number of cancer specialists testified that potassium iodide, which was one of the ingredients in Hoxsey’s mixture, might actually speed up the growth of cancerous tumors. However, many other researchers deny the link between potassium iodide and faster tumor growth.
• The Hoxsey case and the beliefs expressed in it have been a source of controversy since the initial popularity of Hoxsey’s treatment. Now, in light of recent terrorist attacks on the world and the possibility of attack with radioactive weapons, individual local governments, federal agencies and the medical community as a whole have no choice but to seriously rethink their former opinions on potassium iodide and once again weigh the risks and benefits.

The experts speak on potassium iodide and its effects:
• “Potassium iodide and possible nuclear attacks or disasters”
• If you leave the fate of your own health up to a bunch of state bureaucrats, you’re a fool. Everybody needs to have some potassium iodide on hand to protect themselves from radiation poisoning caused by nuclear accidents or nuclear terrorism. I’ve been recommending this since 1997, and finally, the feds starting promoting the idea after 9/11. But many states refuse to protect their own citizens. Their plans? “We’ll evacuate everybody in time.” Sure they will. And my dog can play the piano. 
”Some states refuse to distribute potassium iodide, leaving residents vulnerable to nuclear accidents”
• KI works best if used within 3 – 4 hours of exposure.

• In December 2001, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a final “Guidance on Potassium Iodide as a Thyroid Blocking Agent in Radiation Emergencies.” The objective of the document is to provide guidance to other Federal agencies, including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), and to state and local governments regarding the safe and effective use of potassium iodide (KI) as an adjunct to other public health protective measures in the event that radioactive iodine is released into the environment. The adoption and implementation of the recommendations are at the discretion of the state and local governments responsible for developing regional emergency-response plans related to radiation emergencies. The recommendations in the guidance address KI dosage and the projected radiation exposure at which the drug should be used. This guidance updates FDA’s 1982 recommendations.

• Less iodine is lost from organically bound sources (as in foods such as kelp) because your body absorbs it better than it does iodine in potassium iodide supplements. There have been no documented cases of iodine poisoning. However, be aware that if you suddenly deluge your perfectly normal thyroid gland with large amounts of supplementary iodine, you can inhibit its ability to produce thyroxine.

1. What does potassium iodide (KI) do?
• The effectiveness of KI as a specific blocker of thyroid radioiodine uptake is well established. When administered in the recommended dose, KI is effective in reducing the risk of thyroid cancer in individuals or populations at risk for inhalation or ingestion of radioiodines. KI floods the thyroid with non-radioactive iodine and prevents the uptake of the radioactive molecules, which are subsequently excreted in the urine.
• 2. Can potassium iodide (KI) be used to protect against radiation from bombs other than radioactive iodine?
Potassium iodide ( KI) works only to prevent the thyroid from uptaking radioactive iodine. It is not a general radioprotective agent.
• 6. What dosages of potassium iodide (KI) should be taken for specific exposure levels?
• 
Exposures greater than 5 cGy: 
Birth through 2 mos. – 16 mg. 
1 mo. through 3 yrs. – 32 mg. 
3 yrs through 18 yrs. – 65 mg. (Adolescents>150 pounds should take adult dose.) 
Exposures greater than 10 cGy: 
18 yrs through 40 yrs. – 130 mg 
Exposures greater than 500 cGy: 
Adults over 40 yrs – 130 mg.

• Older people with nodular goiters are at risk of developing hyperthyroidism from use of potassium iodide and iodized salt. Potassium iodide and iodized salt may exacerbate symptoms in some with autoimmune thyroiditis. 
PDR for Nutritional Supplements by Sheldon Saul Hendle and David Rorvik, page 570
• Finally, anyone over 40 should be treated with KI only if the predicted exposure is high enough to destroy the thyroid and induce lifelong hypothyroidism (thyroid deficiency).

“Skin disorders and other problems possibly associated with potassium iodide”
• Excessive quantities of iodized salt, taking too many kelp tablets, or overuse of potassium iodide expectorants such as SSKI can cause some problems, but regular elevated intake of iodine is needed to produce toxicity. Some people have allergic reactions, mainly as skin rashes, to iodine products. Iodine supplementation may also worsen acne in some cases..

• Since potassium iodide can cause a burning sensation in the mouth, either the tablet should be crushed and fully dissolved in a volume of orange juice that the baby can consume quickly, or you should use a saturated solution dissolved in orange juice…Higher doses in both adults and babies can cause a greater number of side effects and offers no further protection. In general, the side effects are mild and include swelling of the salivary glands, a metallic taste in the mouth, sore teeth and gums, gastrointestinal upset and/or skin rashes.

Radiation protection is offered by amino acids cysteine and glutathione; Vitamins A, C, and E; minerals Selenium and Zinc. Russian clinical study reveals some benefit from Ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus (ES))
• Common foods such as apples, buckwheat, and sunflower seeds strongly protect and detoxify us from radiation.
• •Foods such as apples, buckwheat and sunflower seeds cleanse us of radiation. Apples and sunflower seeds contain pectin which binds and removes radioactive residues from the body. Buckwheat contains glucosides which protect us from the effects of radiation. Cereal grasses and other green foods like chlorella and blue-green algae are also useful in cleansing our bodies of radiation.(1) Essential fatty acids like flax seed oil renew cells which have been burned by radiation. Soaking in a bath with sea salt and baking soda draws toxins including radiation from the body.

• Sea vegetables and miso may not be as familiar, but they are such powerful cleansers of radiation that they were used in Japan after nuclear bombs were dropped and in Russia after the Chernobyl nuclear power plant meltdown. Sea vegetables are also known as seaweed. Many varieties can be found in stores including kelp, dulse, nori and wakame. They can also be taken as a supplement which can be useful to people who can not develop a taste for sea vegetables or who feel uncomfortable cooking it. Below is a recipe for miso soup which includes the sea vegetable wakame. Wakame can be found at natural foods stores and in Asian markets.

• Miso Soup with Sea Vegetables

• 2 Tbsp dried wakame pieces(Wakame is a sea vegetable sold in natural food stores or Asian markets. If it is not in little pieces already, you can simply cut with scissors.)
• 6 cups water
• 1/2 chopped onion
• 1 chopped carrot
• 1 cup chopped kale
• 2 Tbsp chopped scallions
• 2 Tbsp miso, any variety. (Mellow white miso is sweeter; darker miso like rice or barley is more salty.)
• sea salt to taste
• Olive oil to coat pot

• To Prepare Soup

• Coat a soup pot with olive oil and saute onions, carrot and kale over medium heat for five minutes
• Add water and dried wakame
• Bring to boil and simmer fifteen minutes.
• Turn off heat and let cool to body temperature.
• Add a few tablespoons of the broth to a small bowl containing the miso. Mix the miso into the broth and then mix back into the soup.
• Top with scallions, and add sea salt to taste and serve.
