Radiation poisoning? Homeopathic and other natural remedies provide protection and treatment


Radioactive waste from Fukushima is approaching the west coast of North America at a frightening rate. Hundreds of seals off the coast of Alaska are dead and dying from symptoms that look ominously like radiation disease; and most people wonder what and who is next. Alternative medicine offers a wide variety of treatments to protect and treat radiation sickness. Certain homeopathic medicines and other natural substances may provide relief from radiation disease symptoms or boost the body’s natural vital force to protect itself from the severity of radiation exposure.

Symptoms of Radiation Sickness

Early signs of radiation illness include headache, nausea, vomiting and fever. Additional symptoms may appear later, including weakness, dizziness, mental confusion, hair loss, skin lesions, bloody vomit and stools, low blood pressure, wounds that are slow to heal, bone marrow deterioration, gastrointestinal and cardiovascular shut down, and cancerous tumors. Many of these symptoms also appear in animals, as evidenced by the seals in Alaska.


Homeopathic Fucus vesiculosus is a tincture made from a form of sea kelp that can be used to protect the thyroid from radioactive contamination. Like potassium iodide, it acts to block the thyroid receptors, preventing absorption of radiation; however, the dose is easier to control. It is milder and better tolerated by people with thyroid disease and other sensitivities.

Topical Treatments

Raw, organic honey possesses antibacterial properties and can reduce the severity of skin burns and lesions as well as lesson inflammation and ulcerations of the mucous membranes of the digestive tract.

Calendula extract is a healing, soothing liquid that can be mixed with water and applied to relieve burns, sores, itching, peeling and other skin ailments resulting from exposure to radiation.

Echinacea extract is rich in anti-inflammatory agents and acts as an antibiotic when applied to infected areas of the skin. It can be used in any skin ailment, especially those that become infected and septic.


Baking soda baths provide an excellent cleanse for removing radiation from body cells. Baking soda is highly alkaline and helps restore the body’s pH, reducing the incidence of acidosis — a state that fosters weakness and disease. Drinking baking soda mixed with water may help reduce inflammation and heal mouth sores resulting from exposure to radiation.


Clinical experience has shown the efficacy of several homeopathic remedies for the treatment of radiation disease symptoms.

Cadmium sulphuratum may relieve itching, gastrointestinal symptoms such as vomiting or diarrhea aggravated by the slightest movement, and severe flu-like aches and pains in the muscles. The person needing this remedy may feel chilled even in a warm room.

Phosphorus is often the first remedy needed after exposure to radiation. It can help reduce the pain and intensity of burns to the skin as well as lessen vomiting and other stomach upsets. A dose of Phosphorus may help center someone after being exposed, enable them to cope. People needing Phosphorus are often very thirsty for ice-cold water, which is vomited when becoming warm in the stomach.

Radium Bromatum may help people with severe aching, arthritic pains that are made better from movement. It’s also been found effective in the treatment of skin sores, ulcers and acne-like pustules as well as sores that are slow to heal.

Many other homeopathic remedies can offer relief for symptoms of radiation disease; however, no one should self-treat in the event of exposure. Seek the advice of a competent homeopathic practitioner. Remedies can be purchased from online homeopathic pharmacies and stored in the event of emergencies.

  1. If you can get your hands on clean zeolite you can ingest it in capsule form or in a thick juice or yoghurt and it will take some forms of radiation out of your system. There are over 40 natural zeolites so you are looking for chabazite or clinoptilolite. The US has excellent mines of these two which are almost pure. You need stuff that hasn’t been exposed to the elements since 3/11 as it absorbs radiation so if it’s been rained on……
    The UK has been using zeolite for ages to clean the water from their nuclear reactors. The liquid zeolite you will find online is useless in my opinion and a complete ripoff. If you’re interested post it here and we can get together via email. I do know of one person who is selling clinoptilolite or clino as we call it, that has been disinfected at a lab and ground to the best grind for optimum uptake of radioactivity. Zeolite’s are limited however. They won’t pick up all radiation but do like cesium and strontium.
    Best to be smart and watch what you eat – nothing from the Pacific or food from the West coast of the US – that really sucks!

  2. My mom was tellin me that all of america is hot from radiation already and to expect Fukishima to be the main thing to kick off 2012, as it is gonna poison the world, and mor people in america are gonna get sick. She said when that final tower falls, (which already looks like the leaning tower of Piza) we can kiss our global @$$es goodbye!

  3. I am trying to find out some basic information about what to expect, as in medical and environmental changes or risks, concerning this meltdown, but the internet is such a large and confusing place to find out this information. Isn’t there any one source, any one site, which is dedicated to giving accurate information on the subject, telling someone who knows extremely little about this how its going to affect their life? Is there any way to tell what will happen? Any non-governmental site or a government one if there are any governments giving such information out? As far as I’m concerned, the simpler the better, but not so simple to just stonewall a person. I’m sorry to have to ask this question here, but it seems to me you guys might actually know where to direct me. Thanks very much.
