Article: Protection from Radiation Exposure - by Perry A~

Have you ever walked into your local Dairy Queen and ordered a radioactive banana split? Or possibly more likely, have you ever booked an airline flight and asked for your personal 2 REM dose of radiation? Right now, everyone on earth is bathed in a soup of radioactive energy. There has never before been a time when it was more important to cleanse our bodies of ever present radiation: alpha particles, beta particles, gamma rays, muons, neutrinos. The list is long and puzzling, and most of it has nothing to do with human activities.

Living Clay,Nature’s Own Miracle Cure is the definitive guide for using and understanding the multiple benefits of Calcium Bentonite Clay. This natural mineral will do more than any other substance (natural or pharmaceutical) to remove radioactive isotopes from our bodies and to assist our bodies in returning to a state of good health. However, all clays are not alike. It is important to know your clays and to find a pure clay.  Go to www.AboutClay.com to read the article, Criteria for Selecting a Quality Healing Clay.

No matter what we do, no matter how health conscious we’ve become, no matter what precautions are taken, our bodies are radiated daily. It is crucially important to counter this bombardment, to remove this radiation and the resultant damage from our bodies on a daily basis. There is nothing better for this purpose than using a quality living clay on a daily basis. So, just what is it you need to protect yourself from?

In the past 30 years we have had 3 major radioactive incidents – Chernobyl, Three Mile Island, and continuing releases in the Marshall Islands. Most of the clean-up at Chernobyl was accomplished with Bentonite Clay. The Marshall Islands have been repeatedly “dusted” with Calcium Bentonite Clay, but the level of radiation continually seeping from below ground has yet to be completely and permanently contained. The Marshall Islands have received the equivalent of 80 atomic bombs the size of the one dropped on Hiroshima.

So, it would seem that the powers-that-be would want everyone to have their own supply of Calcium Bentonite Clay, since that’s what they use for their own messes…not so. Either they have not connected the dots, or they are stockpiling the clay for their own mess ups.

The “incident” at Three Mile Island was a wakeup call for most adults in the US. Simply put, a nuclear reactor near Harrisburg, PA, overheated causing a core reactor to literally melt down. It became so “hot” with radioactivity it literally melted through six feet of solid concrete and steel housing. In doing so, it released radioactive gasses and mist into the air. Not surprisingly, wide scale panic ensued.

It’s important to know the truth about radiation so that correct decisions can be made. It’s equally important to know what beliefs are realistic and which are not.

Radiation is energy in the form of electromagnetic waves, sometimes referred to generically as radio waves. Some radiation is quite harmless and passes through our bodies on a 24 hour a day basis (e.g., radio and TV wave frequencies). Higher spectrum, faster moving, wave frequencies can harm at a cellular level (e.g., x-rays or radioactive metals such as plutonium or uranium).

Then, there is Ionizing Radiation. Ionization is the ejection of one or more electrons from an atom or molecule to produce a fragment with a new positive charge (positive ion). The classification of radiation as “ionizing” is essentially a statement that it has enough quantum energy to eject an electron. This is a crucial distinction, since “ionizing radiation” can produce a number of physiological effects, such as those associated with risk of mutation or cancer, which non-ionizing radiation cannot directly produce at any intensity.

The unit of measurement used to measure radiation dosage is the rem, which stands for roentgen equivalent in man. It represents the amount of radiation needed to produce a particular amount of damage to living tissue. The total dose of rems determines how much harm a person suffers. At Hiroshima and Nagasaki, people received a dose of rems at the instant of the explosions, then more from the surroundings and, in limited areas, from fallout.  Fallout is composed of radioactive particles that are carried into the upper atmosphere by a nuclear explosion or meltdown and that eventually fall back to the earth’s surface.

Although a dose of just 25 rems causes some detectable changes in blood, doses to near 100 rems usually have no immediate harmful effects. Doses above 100 rems cause the first signs of radiation sickness including:

·  Nausea

·  Vomiting

·  Headache

·  Some loss of white blood cells

Doses of 300 rems or more cause temporary hair loss, as well as more significant internal harm, including damage to nerve cells and the cells that line the digestive tract. Severe loss of white blood cells, which are the body’s main defense against infection, makes radiation victims highly vulnerable to disease. Radiation also reduces production of blood platelets, which aid blood clotting, so victims of radiation sickness are also vulnerable to hemorrhaging.

Half of all people exposed to 450 rems die, and doses of 800 rems or more are always fatal. Besides the symptoms mentioned above, these people also suffer from fever and diarrhea. As of yet, there is no effective treatment for radiation exposures over 800 rems, and death occurs in 1-4 days.

Uranium 235 Isotope (commonly referred to as U235) is a highly charged, positive ion metal found naturally on our planet. Natural uranium mined from the ground is 0.7% pure radiation. Weapons grade U235 has been enriched to 90%+ pure positive ionic radiation. That’s one purpose of nuclear reactors – enrichment. Weapons grade U235 is used in nuclear warheads.

A second type of U235 is known as “waste.” U235 is the garbage left over from the enrichment process. Nuclear waste is commonly 3-5% pure radiation. Some nuclear medical wastes fall into this category as well. A weapons grade U235 warhead containing 90%+ enriched radiation will deliver doses of 1,000+ rems of energy over a several mile radius. At this level, all exposed living things will be killed.

The government, in its report titled “Department of Homeland Security Report on Radiological Dispersal Device (RDD) Preparedness: Medical Preparedness and First Responders Sub-Group” states that once first responders reach the site, it will take 2-24 hours to test for presence of all 6 sub-group types of typical radioactive materials. All you need to know is that a 10 minute delay is much too long.

There are 3 types of appropriate responses to such a blast. The first would be for someone in the fallout area. The second would be for those at, or very near, the blast site who have direct contamination. And the third category would be those outside the potential fallout area and away from any contamination.

For those in the first category (within the potential fallout area), like what might be possible with the Japan catastrophe of March 2011, take the following steps:

1.  If outdoors, come inside immediately.

2.  When in your home or apartment, quickly close all windows and doors.

3.  Turn off any outside air source. You may leave on air conditioning or heat if it can be set to utilize re-circulated air from inside the home.
Note: The benefit of steps 1-3 is to close your home to possible contamination from the air outside. It could be only seconds before the blast contamination is at your doorstep.

4.  Go immediately to an area of your home set aside for such an emergency. Strip off all of your clothing. Using prepared hydrated Calcium Bentonite Clay: Get in the shower and dip your hands into it. Quickly apply the clay over every inch of your body (with the exception of in your eyes). Cover your hair and all nooks and crannies. Scrub your body thoroughly with the clay. Leave it on for 10 minutes. Next, wash off, while continuing to scrub.

5.  After drying off, apply another thin film coating of clay and stand with your arms away from your sides and feet slightly apart. In 5-15 minutes the clay will dry on your body.

6.  After the clay has dried, put on a disposable pull-on garment, a surgical-type face mask, and disposable shoe covers on your bare feet.

7.  Using a prepared liquid Calcium Bentonite Clay and a jar of potassium iodine (KI) into the kitchen and set them on the counter by the sink.  Drink 4 ounces of the liquid Calcium Bentonite Clay and take 2 potassium iodine (KI) tablets or as directed on the label. Periodically every 2-3 hours drink another 2 ounces of the liquid clay.

8.  If service is available stay tuned to your TV or radio to stay informed.

Note: Get as comfortable as possible because this will be your repetitive treatment and mode of dress for several days to come. You will sleep well knowing you are being protected from radiation.

9.  Take a clay bath daily using 1-2 cups of dry clay until danger has passed. You can also give your pets a clay bath.

10.   Wash your clothes by adding ¼ cup liquid clay per load.

11.   When it is safe to go outside, get a clean new garden sprayer and add ½ cup of liquid clay to gallon of water and spray your lawns and gardens.

12.   Rinse fresh vegetables in clay water.

For those fortunate enough to not have been in a fallout area, please remain out of the areas affected with radioactive fallout.  Drink 2 ounces of clay twice daily, take 1 Potassium Iodine tablet every morning and take a weekly clay bath.  These are precautionary maintenance doses that are healthy for all of us.  Simply stay away from contaminated areas until the cleanup has been certified.

As you learned earlier, radioactive material is formed carrying a positive ionic charge. Calcium Bentonite Clay is a negatively charged ion. Simply put, Calcium Bentonite Clay adsorbs and absorbs, capturing positive charged ions, and you wash them off or pass them through your body. Unlike other clays, only Smectites (Bentonites) can absorb andadsorb and are characterized by its expandable properties.

Radiation is a real health problem. Calcium Bentonite Clay is the real solution. I recommend reading the book Living Clay, Nature’s Own Miracle Cure for protocols, mixing directions, and to learn more about protecting your family and yourself from our inevitable exposure to radiation.

Treating Autism with Bentonite Clay

As a children’s author, researcher, and humanitarian, I have been growing increasingly alarmed at the growing number of autism diagnosis. Whereas in the 1980s, a study shows that 4 in every 10,000 children exhibited signs of autism, a study conducted recently by Cambridge University’s Autism Research Center showed that approximately 1 in 60 children have autism. Several years ago, I myself was diagnosed with celiac disease, caused by a reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye, after many years without proper diagnosis for my painful symptoms. I am now happily gluten-free and pain-free. Lucky to have been correctly diagnosed and had my symptoms handled with the natural treatment of a gluten-free diet, I am passionate about helping children to avoid the same pain of misdiagnosis and to find natural remedies for their health problems. According to a recent article on NaturalNews.com, one such natural remedy for autism is calcium Bentonite clay. I had to share this information!

The use of Bentonite clay has been rising in popularity in autism treatment centers. Calcium Bentonite clay, also known as “Living Clay” and one of the most sought-after for its healing properties, has a particularly strong negative ionic charge which magnetically attracts positively-charged substances such as bacteria and metals, for example, and absorbs them, eliminating toxins from the body. It is used both internally and externally and is a rather simple procedure. In autism treatment centers, Bentonite clay baths are used to safely remove metals and toxins from the body to increase the chances of success when used in conjunction with other therapies.

As autism diagnosis increases, so does the controversy over its causes. Most researchers seem to be searching for a genetic factor, but others are showing evidence of environmental causes. “There`s really the role for something in the environment that could be triggering someone who is genetically susceptible,” says Dr. Gary Goldstein, a child neurologist and director of the Kennedy Krieger Institute, located in Maryland.

The research supporting the impact of environmental toxins has spurred the search for detoxification therapies that can remove them from our systems. Already large numbers of doctors are recommending chelation and detoxification programs in conjunction with behavioral therapy for autistic children, noting that with these toxins removed, other therapies are more effective. Chelators are substances that fix themselves to heavy metals. Chelation therapies are typically effective, but they’re expensive and carry a higher risk of side effects such as headache, diarrhea, fatigue, fever, and cramps, particularly for children. Calcium Bentonite clay is considered more effective and safer for children.

While many autism clinics are citing successful results with clay therapy, its use isn’t being promoted to doctors due to the fact that clay can’t be patented by the pharmaceutical companies. Similarly, celiac disease affects 1 out of 100 Americans, and since its treatment is simply a gluten-free diet—requiring no pharmaceutical products, doctors are failing to recognize the symptoms of the disease and diagnosis it correctly, leaving only three percent of celiacs properly diagnosed. However, just as in the cause to increase celiac and gluten-free awareness, by taking it upon ourselves to promote natural therapies for children’s autism, we will surely bring about increase awareness about the effectiveness of calcium Bentonite clay treatment, just as I’ve witnessed awareness of celiac disease and gluten-free grow a great deal over the years.
