(NaturalNews) With the situation heating up between the U.S. and Russia over Ukraine, as well as ongoing concerns about a potential power grid failure affecting domestic nuclear reactors, preppers nationwide are turning their attention to antidotes for radioactive fallout. Likewise, with Fukushima continuing to spew radioactive harm, having a few select storable remedies readily available will protect health, regardless of what the future holds.

Have a look at the following supplements that will help shield the body internally and assist with maintaining equilibrium:

Apple pectin. During the Chernobyl reactor crisis in 1986, physicians and researchers searched for a method to reduce the effects of radioactive exposure in the population's most vulnerable segment. Apple pectin came to the forefront as a workable remedy.

The results of a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, [PDF] using a powder containing 15-16 percent pectin on 64 children, showed that the powder reduced Cesium-137 counts by an average of 62 percent, compared to 13.9 percent in the placebo group. Moreover, Dr. Mark Sircus, Ac, OMD, DM (P), reports:

"From 1996 to 2007 a total of more than 160,000 Belarussian children received pectin food additives during 18-25 days of treatment (5 g twice a day). As a result, levels of Cs-137 in children's organs decreased after each course of pectin additives by an average of 30-40%."

Potassium iodide (KI). Recommended by emergency contingency plans involving a nuclear event, potassium iodide helps block the absorption of radioactive iodine and protect the thyroid from damage. Radiation Emergency Medical Management (REMM) advises:

  • KI is highly effective if taken several hours before inhaled contamination with radioactive iodine.
  • Taking KI within 1 to 2 hours after inhalation of I-131 can block more than 90% of the radioactive iodine uptake by the thyroid.
  • If KI is taken more than 4 hours after inhalation of I-131, much less thyroid uptake of I-131 is blocked.
  • KI is even less effective at preventing radioiodine uptake by the thyroid if taken more than 12 hours of a time-limited contamination episode.
  • Since the protective effect of a single dose of KI lasts approximately 24 hours, repeat KI administration may be indicated for some members of the public where contamination is continuing or ongoing.

Information on dosage can be found at the REMM website.

For day-to-day protection, and to ensure proper functioning of the thyroid, nascent iodine and seaweed like wakame are two excellent choices. To learn more about the benefits and application of nascent iodine, Global Healing Center offers a detailed overview.

Vitamin C. The protective properties of vitamin C were demonstrated in several Fukushima workers. Each was given intravenous vitamin C (25 g) before exposure to radiation and subsequently did not have any significant change in free DNA or apparent increase in cancer risk. Even those who didn't receive vitamin C beforehand -- and who exhibited a heightened cancer likelihood due to radiation exposure -- were able to return their free DNA to normal levels and decrease cancer risk scores after two months of intravenous vitamin C, along with oral antioxidant supplements. The recommended dosage of (oral or intravenous) vitamin C can be found here [PDF] (page 18).

Further protection

Other beneficial additions: garlic, ginger, miso, vitamin D3, American ginseng, rhodiola, ginkgo biloba, reishi and cordyceps mushrooms, alpha-lipoic acid, vitamin E, selenium, melatonin (applied to the skin) and turmeric. Also, Aloe arborescens, Nigella sativa (black cumin seed) and Tinospora cordifolia (amrit) have radioprotective properties as well.
