We often think radioactive elements are microwave waves, airport scans, radiation from your phone, modes, wifi, and so on.
But there is more to radioactive elements than we commonly know.
Elements like plutonium, uranium, and radium begin to break down; they become unstable, we call that radioactive decay. This decay can give off a tremendous amount of energy called ionizing radiation. This is a powerful type of radiation that can knock electrons out of molecules; in turn, it damages your tissues down to your mitochondrial function and DNA. It means that radioactive elements may affect you for long periods, not just for a passing moment.
The truth is constant low levels of radiation exposure aren’t obvious. And the symptoms aren’t either. You could experience any of the following issues.
General symptoms: Fatigue, low iron levels, dry and itchy skin, low blood cell count, or hair loss.
Chronic candida infections: Candida is an opportunistic yeast that takes advantage of lower immune defenses.
Brain: You may have seizures, earaches, headaches, brain fog and forgetfulness, speech and learning difficulties, and hormone irregularities with your hypothalamus, thyroid, or pituitary gland. It may also impact your mental health.
Head and neck challenges: Issues like a sore or dry mouth, taste changes, trouble swallowing, hoarse voice, dry eyes, stiff jaw, and tooth decay could be radiation symptoms.
Chest issues: That chronic heartburn, cough, or breast swelling may be linked to radiation. Irregular heartbeat, a pounding heartbeat, or heart failure are among the chest-related radiation concerns.
Abdominal symptoms: You might brush off your indigestion, bloating, gas, or diarrhea as coming from other sources. But radioactive elements may inflame or kill cells in your gut. Stomach ulcers and kidney issues could also surface.
Pelvic area issues: Elimination may become painful, and you might experience discomfort while peeing or bladder infections. You could also lose control of your bowels or bladder.
Fertility concerns and sexual dysfunction in both men and women: A study in mice showed that low-dose radiation might kill sperm.
These radioactive elements are often found in public drinking water sources as they occur naturally. For example, radioactive radium and uranium are found in small amounts in almost all rock and soil and dissolve in water. Radon, a radioactive gas created through the decay of radium, can also naturally occur in groundwater. If it is not removed, radon in water can be released into the air as you shower or use water for other tasks like washing dishes or doing laundry. Municipal water treatment plants are usually unequipped to remove radioactive elements.
If radioactive elements are in your water, it stands to reason that they may exist in your food as well. Trace amounts of radioactive elements may also reside in seafood, meat, eggs, milk, and plant-based foods.
Glyphosate, commonly known as Roundup, may increase the number of radioactive elements plants absorb from the soil.
The best place to start is strengthening your body and removing radiation from your tissues. You can begin this process through the following lifestyle changes or supplements.
You eliminate about 98% of radium through your poop, so make sure you are pooping 2 to 3 times a day. Bowel-moving herbs like ginger, aloe, and fennel can help.
Research suggests that the fulvic and humic acids bind and remove radioactive elements in carbon-based binders. Carbon-based binders also contain building blocks to help repair tissues.
The presence of organic minerals in your body may help your DNA stabilize and avoid damage, such as zinc. Zinc may help protect your DNA from the harmful effects of radioactive elements. This mineral stabilizes your DNA, enhances DNA repair, and acts as an antioxidant against free radical damage.
Your body uses your kidneys and liver to filter out radioactive elements, help shield your kidneys and liver from damage with herbs that strengthen them—for example, beetroot, milk thistle, and parsley.
To detox your body, you need water, but make sure to drink safe water (free of radioactive elements), such as reverse osmosis or distilled water; these are your best options.
Water distillation systems remove biological contaminants such as bacteria, viruses, organic and inorganic chemicals, heavy metals, volatile gases, and other pollutants. Distilled water contains virtually no solids, minerals, or trace elements. It is clean, natural, and healthy. You can restructure your water by adding minerals such as CT-Minerals.
Radioactive element exposure can significantly impact your health, but there is a lot you can do to mitigate it. The bottom line is that what you drink and eat impacts your health and how well your body handles any potential radioactive element exposures.

Nutrition Response Testing is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body to assist a practitioner’s assessment of underlying causes of ill health. This system is considered a form of integrative, complementary, or alternative medicine and is used to provide information to a practitioner who is responsible for properly evaluating their client. Nutrition Response Testing is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
