I also recommend using one pound of bicarbonate of soda and one pound of sea salt (or
salts of magnesium) in a bath to remove uranium from the kidneys and total system in
the case of heavy exposure.
3. Keep the body high in antioxidant nutrients and enzymes. These nullify the free radicals created by radiation exposure.
4. Research shows that certain foods and herbs specifically protect against the overall
effects of radiation or radiation treatments, especially green tea and foods containing
chlorophyll. Some of these foods are: cabbage, leafy green vegetables, spirulina, chlorella,
wheatgrass, any sprouts, and blue-green algae. Spirulina and chlorella provide up to 50%
amelioration in side effects from radiation.
According to post-Hiroshima research, long-aged miso offers radiation protection.
Beets protect against the uptake of plutonium-238, -239, iron- 55, and - 59.
Bee pollen is another potent anti-radiation food. It is high in vitamins A, B, C, and E,
nucleic acids, lecithin, cysteine, and vital minerals such as selenium, calcium, and magnesium. It is also high in nucleic acids, which protect against radiation.
Garlic, onions, and ginseng are also protective due to antioxidants and factor X.
Siberian ginseng is an outstanding protective herb and adaptogen.
Chaparral (one of the few plants to survive atomic testing in Nevada) contains a potent
antioxidant known as NGRA.
The herb rosemary has also been shown to protect against radiation.
5. Alkalize your diet: an alkalizing diet is a live-food, plant-source diet.
6. Eat low on the food chain. Research at the Department of Radiation adopted from the
radiological assessment of the Wyhl Nuclear Power Plant in 1978 by the Department of
Environmental Protection at the University of Heidelberg, Germany showed (as a result
of air exposure to radiation) that radioactive materials were concentrated 15 times more
in cows’ milk and 30 times more in beef than in leafy green vegetables. Freshwater fish
were more concentrated than seawater fish.
Eating lower on the food chain with a plant-source-only diet is a logical and scientific
approach to dealing with radiation. It also best supports ahimsa, a traditional part of the
7. Meditation has been shown in studies at Chernobyl to ameliorate the degenerative
effects of radiation.
Yoga teaches flexibility and adaptability of body and mind. This teaching needs to be applied to our total lifestyles to protect ourselves from the ill effects of radiation.

Nutrition: Six Foundations for Spiritual Life and Awakening Kundalini. He has been a student and teacher of all
aspects of yoga since 1973. TREEOFLIFE.NU
Dr. Cousens will be speaking on Spiritual Nutrition at NAAM Yoga Center on February 2, 2014, from 6-10pm.
RESEARCH SHOWS THAT CERTAIN FOODS
AND HERBS SPECIFICALLY PROTECT AGAINST
THE OVERALL EFFECTS OF RADIATION
The most significant antidote I have
discovered to neutralize radiation
contamination is a high oxygen,
liquid with over 100 homeopathic
radioactive nucleotides taken from
the Fukushima area called Radiation
Neutralization. Thirty-two people
from different countries were part
of a study using this; we now have
close to 18 months of successful
results in which people, after taking
this remedy, have remained radiation
free. I recommend that people
who are elderly or ill and those
living in Japan or Hawaii take
three consecutive bottles,
two bottles for those living
on the West Coast, and
for the rest of the continent,
I recommend one bottle.
