Radiation Detox

May 12, 2022

Reducing one’s toxic load is at the top of the priority list for most of us. In a previous blog, I talked about Limiting Toxins with Plastic Free Food Storage , and I have several blogs that talk about cleansing/detoxing. Today, however, I’ll be discussing a silent toxin, radiation, and how you can incorporate some radiation detox practices into your life.

It should come as no surprise that I receive a lot of questions from expecting mamas and moms with young children wondering what they can do about radiation exposure and how they can limit the consequences of the exposures for their families.

I can personally remember taking my 18-month old son to the airport for the first time and feeling nervous about the radiation exposure to his little body. While we can’t control all of the things, we can certainly consume healing and protective foods and herbs as well as take some other precautions to help to reduce the side effects of radiation.

What is Radiation?

For many, what comes to mind when the word radiation is mentioned is a specific medical treatment. Others may think of exposures via medical scans or electronics. Simply put, radiation is energy given off by matter in the form of rays or high-speed particles. It is, in fact, used as a medical treatment as well as for medical scans (X-ray, CT scans, and MRIs—although MRIs contain a different type of radiation).

Other man-made sources of EMFs (electromagnetic fields) include cell phones, computers, WiFi routers, radios, and TVs, as well as other electrical appliances. Airports and airplanes contain an increased amount of radiation, and, as often discussed as a hot topic in recent years, radiation can also come from big sources such as nearby cell phone towers and their corresponding frequencies. Nuclear disasters can also result in a dangerous amount of radiation exposure. Additionally, radiation exposure can be passed down through generations.

Why is Radiation a Concern?

Radiation exposure is troublesome for several reasons. To start, it speeds up the aging process (and let’s be honest, who wants that?). Anthony William explains quite well what we see and the impact radiation has on our bodies:

No one wants to age quickly—to get gray hair faster or wrinkled skin or degenerative bone diseases. No one wants to shrink and lose their height. No one wants their fingernails and toenails to lose their vitality and color. No one wants their teeth to discolor and decay or their eyes to glaze over with cataracts or degenerative retina disease to develop. We simply don’t want to age; we’re always talking about anti-aging and never talking about the radiation exposure that contributes to it. Radiation speeds up the aging process rapidly. It causes much faster deterioration of cell tissue; vitality gets sucked out of every cell exposed to radiation.

Equally important, radiation lowers the immune system. This, of course, leaves our bodies especially weakened when we come across life’s usual pathogens, viruses, bacteria, etc. This is also why it’s imperative that we support our immune systems on a regular basis. (Here’s a great blog for supporting children’s immunity in a pandemic and always!)

Research is also ongoing to determine the impact radiation has on childhood development, cell growth, brain function, fertility, and more.

Must Everyone Worry About Radiation Exposure?

Simply put, the answer is yes, more so for children and mamas-to-be, but this is surely a topic that should be on everyone’s radar. Certainly, those who have increased exposure to airports and those individuals working around or receiving frequent medical procedures/scans should be particularly careful about limiting exposure as much as possible.

It may be important to note that as with other toxins, some people are more sensitive to radiation than others. Individuals with more sensitive nervous systems can find themselves having reactions when using their cell phones/laptops, etc. whereas others may not detect the radiation as easily or at all (although this doesn’t mean it’s not harmful).

What Can You Do About Radiation?

Now, that I’ve covered what radiation is and how it affects the body, let’s look at some radiation detox habits you can add to your life.

Try a Cleanse

I’m a big fan of the 3-6-9 detoxification cleanse shared by Anthony William but any type of (appropriate) cleanse will help to reduce your body’s toxic load.

Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie

This smoothie contains five key ingredients that work together in synergy to pull heavy metals and radiation out of the organs where they accumulate.

The powerful ingredients are wild blueberries (could also use wild blueberry powder ), cilantro, barley grass juice powder , spirulina , and Atlantic dulse. These ingredients can be consumed separately throughout the day as well as in the smoothie.

Detoxifying Foods

Other powerful foods that reverse or reduce radiation damage include aloe vera, apples, bananas, artichokes, avocados, cherries, cranberries, figs, ginger, grapes, kiwis, lemons, limes, onions, oranges, raw honey, sweet potatoes, tangerines, and cruciferous vegetables.

These foods are all great sources of calcium, magnesium, and potassium which help prevent radiation absorption into the body.

Fun fact! When my son was 14 months old, he twisted his ankle on a slide at the park. I was beside myself with the thought of him having to get an X-ray. Anthony William came to the rescue! He suggested sweet potatoes, lots of breastmilk, avocado blended with banana, and red apples to help removal.

Consider Baseline Supplements

These include nutrients zinc , B-12 , and Vitamin C to support the removal of radiation from your body. As always, if pregnant or nursing, consult with your MD or healthcare practitioner.

Eat Some Sea Veggies

Sea vegetables such as dulse contain antioxidants that help protect the thyroid from radiation’s effects, help remove radiation from the thyroid, and can be a helpful cancer preventative (thanks, Anthony William!). Sea vegetables contain high levels of iodine which is also helpful for boosting our immune systems.

Drink Anti-Radiation Tea

“ Radiation Clear ” tea contains the super important and effective ingredients Atlantic kelp , Atlantic dulse , Dandelion leaf, and Nettle leaf.

Do Your Research

When it comes to medical procedures, do some research and make the best decisions you can. For example, it is best to limit X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs. However, when deemed medically necessary, you do what you can! Definitely avoid X-rays while pregnant and otherwise, ask for the lead apron for protection of other body parts.

When a mammogram is recommended, consider alternatives such as thermography or an ultrasound. These options are not always possible, but worth considering and discussing with your practitioner!

Be an Informed Traveler

As Anthony William explains on his blog , those who travel by plane often should consider replacing their luggage frequently.

It is also best to avoid airport scanners and request a manual “pat down” instead. Further, once home, be sure to store your luggage away from yourself and loved ones, especially pregnant bellies and children!

Consider Sources of Radiation Exposure in your Home

Some helpful tips include turning the WiFi off in your home at night using something simple and inexpensive such as this Plug-in Mechanical Timer . Nightlights can also be sneaky sources of EMFs. I love this 2-pack of Himalayan Salt lamp Night Lights .

Favorite Products to Combat or Reverse Radiation Damage

I specifically recommend their laptop cover, cell cases, and blanket which is wonderful for children and pregnant bellies. Use the code drkimberly for 10% off of your purchase!

Earth blanket

“Weighted blankets apply Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation (DPTS) through their gentle yet firm weight across your whole body. This signals your nervous system to relax, bringing you into a calm parasympathetic state ready for sleep. The deep pressure provided by Earth Blankets triggers the release of neurotransmitters serotonin, melatonin and dopamine, which are responsible for regulating your mood, sleep, and metabolism. Weighted blankets have been shown in several studies to reduce anxiety and stress, improve the quality and quantity of sleep, increase focus and embodiment and support sensory and other disorders.”

Specifically, you can add hematite as a crystal gem blanket upgrade.

“This dreamy dark mineral crystal certainly packs a punch when it comes to protecting you from EMF smog and radiation. In the battlefields of Ancient Rome it was said that soldiers used to stud their armor with hematite as a form of protection. Hematite goes by another name – The Blood Stone. This is because it boasts bountiful blood cleansing properties, which can also help clear your body of toxins. Rich in iron, this is a great crystal for placing close to your workstation or wherever you tend to have an abundance of technology.”

In Conclusion

While I shared a bit of doom and gloom about the seemingly endless ways we are exposed to radiation, I’m hoping that after reading this blog, you are not only more aware about the topic of radiation but also feeling more empowered about what you can do to reduce the exposures and damage of radiation for yourselves and your families.

As with any new adventures, I encourage you to start by making one small change, then another, and so on. Repeated small changes will eventually equal big changes in your health and wellness.

As always, if you need any support with healing supplements, starting a cleanse, or more, check out my consultation options .
