Uranium is a naturally occurring element in the earth and is present in most soils, rock and water. Although naturally present in the earth’s crust, uranium can be found in much higher concentrations in different areas of the country, primarily in those regions with granite deposits. Increased concentrations may also be found in or near uranium mining and milling operations as well as industrial manufacturing that use depleted uranium for production of aircraft parts, plating, munitions, etc. Ore used for the production of phosphate fertilizer may also be a source of uranium.
The main source of uranium intake or exposure, other than in those working with or living near mining operations is through ingestion of water and foods containing uranium. Foods grown in soils high in uranium may contain higher than normal concentrations, particularly root vegetables.
Uranium can also accumulate from x-rays, PET scans and CT scans. Once CT scan can give a person as much radiation as 400 chest X-rays.
The most common finding with prolonged exposure is related to abnormal renal function. Inhalation can cause irritation to the lungs and skin exposure to soluble uranium can produce dermal irritation. Uranium accumulates largely in bone, but is also distributed and deposited in the liver and kidneys. Uranium can also cause oxidant damage and damage to the DNA. Interestingly, those with AB or B blood groups are more likely to absorb and to store uranium. If exposure occurs during a period of low iron status, it is also more likely to be absorbed.
Removal of uranium
A nutritional program can help correct radiation toxicity from uranium. In the meantime, try to avoid all unnecessary scans and x-rays.
Red heat lamp sauna therapy
The increased body temperature caused by the sauna`s heat disables or may even kill cells mutated by radiation exposure so they can not reproduce.
The increase in circulation can dislodge some radioactive particles stuck in the body.
The higher temperature enhances the metabolic rate, speeding up cell turnover and getting rid of mutated cells.
Coffee enemas These powerfully detoxify the liver and colon, assisting the removal of radioactive particles from the body.
Clean drinking water and hydration Using an advanced water filtration system and drinking between 1.5 - 2 litres of water each day
Kelp Kelp seems to be able to help remove radiation in several ways. It supplies a wide variety of easily utilised trace minerals that can replace radioactive ones in the body. It also tends to speed up the metabolic rate. It supplies iodine and the alginates in it seem to capture and remove toxic radioactive material in the body. It provides antioxidants that may help offset oxidant damage from radiation poisoning.
Sardines Sardines provide omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin D, but they also provide RNA - DNA or nucleic acids that may help rebuild cells.
