Iodine is utilized by every hormone receptor in the body. The absence of iodine causes a hormonal dysfunction that can be seen with practically every hormone inside the body. Dr. Flechas has recently been able to show that patients with insulin resistant diabetes have a partial to full remission of their illness in the presence of taking iodine. Iodine deficiency is also felt to be the source of ovarian cysts. With iodine replacement therapy the cysts disappear and women have stopped having ovarian cysts."-All cells in the body need iodine for proper functioning. All glands (thyroid, adrenal, etc.) especially need iodine for the production of hormones. Dr. Brownstein believes that iodine deficiency is a major cause of breast cancer and other diseases of the reproductive organs such as ovarian, uterus and prostrate cysts and cancers. Iodine levels in US soil have fallen 50 per cent over the past 50 years and soil in the US is deficient in iodine. The Great Lakes region has some of lowest soil iodine levels in the world and this results in high levels of cancers related to iodine deficiency. Dr. Brownstein has been quite successful in treating fibrocystic breast disease (cysts in the breast) with iodine/iodine supplementation. In one case a 37 year-old woman with severe fibrocystic breast disease was completely cured after supplementing with 50 mgs of iodine a day for two months. Women with large breasts need more iodine than women with smaller breasts. Other medical authorities agree that iodine deficiency can lead to fibrocystic breast disease and/or ovarian cysts Iodine can similarly reduce uterine fibroids and one of the first conventional medical treatments for severe fibroids was to paint the uterus with iodine.  Some other medical conditions associated with iodine deficiency are goiters, Graves’ Disease, Hashimoto’s Disease, fatigue and impaired immune system function. Iodine deficiency during pregnancy can lead to miscarriages and reduced IQ in surviving offspring. The World Health Organization says that iodine deficiency is the largest single cause of mental retardation. Iodine also detoxifies the body by removing mercury, fluorides, chlorides, and bromides.
"If you think you may be deficient in Iodine, consider this; most of the US population has one or more mercury amalgam fillings in their mouths. A consequence of this is that minute amounts of the heavy metal mercury are continuously being released into the mouth and absorbed into the body. This toxication stimulates a natural detox reaction by the body. Several mechanisms are utilized to remove the mercury. In order for these detoxification mechanisms to work properly, numerous essential minerals are utilized. Iodine, Zinc, Sulfur, Selenium, and Silica stimulate the excretion of heavy metals including mercury. Iodine is at the top of the list when it comes to mercury removal. ---"Unfortunately, the average persons daily intake of Iodine is not high enough to keep them mercury free even when not exposed to excessive levels. Add on the exposure of mercury from vaccinations, smoking, etc., and you have the potential for serious heavy metal toxicity. This toxicity can manifest itself in many ways causing problems that would not normally be attributed to high levels of mercury.
"Iodine is essential for the health of the: Thyroid, Breast and Prostate.
"Iodine chelates: · Mercury · Lead · Cadmium · Aluminum · Bromide
"Iodine helps to improve: · Bowel irregularity · Brain fog · Renaud’s syndrome (numb finger tips) · Low energy · Sensitivity to cold · Skin complexion
"In addition to mercury toxicity, you naturally have a major deficiency in the essential mineral Iodine if you are getting at or below the outdated RDA. Additionally, fluoride is an antagonistic element to Iodine, meaning it will impede the absorption of Iodine. Many of us are forced to drink fluoridated water and also brush our teeth with fluoride. Could an Iodine deficiency be related in some way to the current epidemic of hypothyroidism, breast, and prostate cancers? The protective function of Iodine in these tissues has not been described, but the fact that these tissues when healthy are replete with Iodine, and when diseased have little or no Iodine, leads one to think there is more than a casual link."

GSE= GRAPEFRUIT SEED EXTRACT….IT IS DERIVED FROM THE SEED OF THE GRAPEFRUIT…AND IT CONTAINS BIOFLAVONOIDS, AMINO ACIDS, PHENOLIC COMPOUNDS,TOCOPHEROLS, ABSORBIC ACID, AND DEHYDROASCORBIC ACID. IT HAS ANTIMICROBIAL PROPERTIES AS WELL AS ANTIFUNGAL, ANTIBACTERIAL,ANTI MOLD, ANTI PARASITE, AND A EXTREMELY POWERFUL ANTIOXIDANT,AND A POSSIBLE ANTI CANCER FIGHTER AS WELL.
IT CAN BE USED FOR:
THE POWER OF GSE....IT WAS TESTED WITH OTHER SUBSTANCES THAT WERE KNOWN TO BE EXTREMELY POWERFUL TOWARD MICROBES ...AND IT WAS FOUND TO BE 10 -- 100X'S MORE POWERFUL THEN CHLORINE.....AND 10X'S STRONGER THEN COLLOIDAL SILVER....IT WAS EFFECTIVE EVEN DILUTED TO 10PPM 1/100,000 DILUTIONS.....IT WAS EFFECTIVE AGAINST CANDIDA, STAPHYYLOCOCCUS AUREUS, SALMONELLA TYPHI, STREPTOCOCCUS FAECIUM, AND ECOLI. THIS IS PRETTY IMPRESSIVE...MORE POWERFUL THEN COLLOIDAL SILVER, AND THE BEAUTY OF THIS IS, IT DOES NOT EFFECT THE HEALTHY BACTERIA IN THE INTESTINAL AREA. PERFECT TRAVELING COMPANION WHEN VISITING OTHER COUNTRIES. GSE CAN BE USED FOR CLEANING ANYTHING, CAN BE TAKEN INTERNALLY AS WELL AS APPLIED EXTERNALLY, CAN BE USED WITH OTHER HEALING SUBSTANCES AS WELL SUCH AS ALOE VERA AND OTHER HERBS .

as a deodorant: Mix a cup of baking soda and 2 T. of cornstarch (to keep baking
soda from clumping) and put it in a plastic container with a short-handled
Then after your shower you just brush on your deodorant. Since you're still a
little moist, it doesn't have a problem sticking.
* Make a cream deodorant by mixing 2 tablespoons baking soda, 2 tablespoons of petroleum jelly and 2 tablespoons talcum or baby powder. Heat in a double boiler or over very low heat, stirring constantly until it becomes smooth and creamy. Store in a container with tight lid. Another idea about using it as a deodorant: mix equal parts baking soda and cornstarch, then add water until it can be poured into a mold. After it dries you'll have a ball of deodorant that you can moisten and apply. Be careful though, because baking soda IS caustic, and if you apply it to raw or tender skin (i.e. after shaving your armpits) it will burn.
* Toothpaste - its a mildly abrasive tooth cleaner and mouthwash in one. ('Dentist approved') Add it to your tooth paste so it won't taste too bad. Put the toothpaste on brush then simply sprinkle on top.
* Use gently as an ex foliating facial scrub. Add a little baking soda to your facial cleanser instead of using facial scrubs. The little 'grains' are round and tiny, so are very gentle. Mix with oatmeal in your blender and it makes a marvelous facial scrub.
* Soothe bee stings, and other insect bites by spreading a paste of baking soda and vinegar on it
* Use in bath water to relieve irritated skin. (Good for baby, too)
* Anti-acid, mix 1/2 teaspoon in about 4 ounces of water, and drink all at one time. It will cause you to 'burp', as it neutralizes stomach acid the same way it does other acids.
* Put sunburned kids (or yourself) in a cool (not cold) baking soda bath for half an hour. This also works well for chicken pox and mosquito bites.
* Use it to relieve the itch from poison ivy by making a paste with water and spreading it on the affected area and letting it dry. This also promotes healing by drawing out the poison.
* In your hand, mix hair shampoo with a small amount of baking soda. Shampooing with this mixture easily removes old and heavy hair spray/spritz, etc., residue. If you mix baking soda and hair conditioner in your hand and only condition the ends of your hair it will give your hair more volume, body, and health.
* From another reader: When my son was a baby he got heat rash on his little face - my doctor told me to sprinkle baking soda on his sheets because it would keep him from lying in his drool - worked!!
From the same reader: The doctor also told me it was better than baby powder to use on baby's - keeps them drier and cuts out any sour smells from burps
* It's said that if you put a small amount of baking soda in a 8 oz. glass of water and drink it, it will clean out your kidneys. (Note: Be aware that if your diet is salt restricted, you should not use baking soda for any internal reason, other than normal cooking.)
* Mix a teaspoon of baking soda and a teaspoon of epsom salt in a glass of water to alkalinize your entire body and clean blood stream.
* (check with your Optometrist first) For daily wear contacts that have protein buildup that enzyme cleaners don't take care of, make a wet paste of baking soda and saline solution. Clean lenses in your hand with this paste, then follow your regular lens care routine. The mild abrasive will remove the deposits without harming the lenses, and they will feel like new.
* From another reader: My two year old ran through a huge Fire Ant nest, ants covered her feet. Both feet turned bright red, I grabbed a bowl of water and box of soda, we soaked her feet in it for a while, you couldn't tell she had ever been stung.
* Apply baking soda and water paste to jellyfish or sea nettle stings to remove the burn.
* Use Baking Soda if your hair is oily and you don't have time to wash it. Sprinkle a little on your hair, comb it through and do a quick blow-dry and it works perfectly! It is great if you are in a hurry.
* If your hair turns green from chlorine in swimming pools, just shampoo as usual but add 1/4 cup baking soda to your shampoo.
* To relieve an upset stomach put a pinch of baking soda and a pinch of salt into a cup of mint tea. It's not the best tasting thing in the world but it will ease and relieve an upset stomach.
* It works great to defeat feminine odor problems. Just sprinkle a bit on a panty liner and wear as usual.
* From another reader: I learned this from a make-up artist when I suffered from bad acne. For boils and large pimples make a paste out of baking soda and water. Pack it on the infected spot and it works to draw the infection.
* for minor burns (1st degree burns) from ironing or from your oven while baking. Take baking soda and water make a thick paste and apply to the burn; leave on until it dries. It takes the pain away.
* Another excellent use for baking soda is for mouth ulcers and cold sores. Simply mix a teaspoon of baking soda with 100mls of water and use as a gargle. For cold sores use the same solution however dab directly onto the cold sore using a cotton bud. Do this at least twice a day.
* Sprinkle a small amount of Baking Soda onto palm, add a little water, and wash face. Leaves the skin feeling as though you had used a moisturizer. Test the difference by only washing one side of face, rinse, towel dry... then check the difference in skin softness.
* From another reader: I've always had a really hard time getting a close shave. I've found that using a bit of baking soda mixed with water and scrubbing my face immediately before shaving helps remove oil from whiskers, making it easier for the razor to 'grab' them. It also works well to leave the soda on the face and apply shaving cream on top (although if you take your time shaving, it may start to sting a little before you finish).
* Use baking soda to remove splinters. Make a paste of baking soda and water, and place the paste on a Band-Aid. Apply the Band-Aid to the affected area and leave for about 24 h. When you remove the Band-Aid, the splinter will be sticking out above the skin and can be pulled out easily. From another reader: I once got a shard of glass in my toe that was so deeply embedded that I couldn't even see it. It took three days and three changes of the baking soda Band-Aid, but it came out. I was amazed to see that the shard was about 1 cm long!
* If you have very oily skin. Mix Noxzema and a little Baking Soda. Mix it together so that it is evenly distributed and place it on your face. Let it dry and it makes your skin feel fabulous--while on your face and after you wash it off. It takes out the oil and makes your skin look wonderful!
* The paste made from baking soda and a little water also works nicely applied to problem areas such as rosacea and viral or herpes-related pus modules (but do not scrub; the damaged skin is too sensitive for even baking soda's gentle abrasion); it helps dry out the pus much better than any expensive medication and feels gentler.
* Baking soda paste, when used as a scrub, also seems to help nail fungus for sweeter feet. From another reader: I had this problem and was told to soak my feet in a solution of Clorox and water. I found out baking soda works better anyway; I skip the Clorox altogether and my feet feel much better for it.
Combatting radiation poisoning
Chelating (detoxifying) excess ionizing radiation & destructive radioactivity from your body and treating radiation burns naturally
by Ulla, designer of Healing Cancer Naturally
© 2006 & 2007
If you have submitted your body to ionizing radiation either for medical diagnostic purposes (fluoroscopy/mammography/other medical x-ray exams) or in the course of radiotherapy treatment, or if you are otherwise concerned by excessive radiation exposure, overload or poisoning (such as living near a nuclear reactor facility, working with diagnostic radiological equipment/in the nuclear processing industries/uranium mining/uranium or plutonium processing), or if you have been exposed to radioactive particles or higher ionizing radiation doses stemming from other sources such as depleted uranium (DU), testing of atomic weapons, frequent flights in higher altitudes etc., here are a number of tips and suggested remedies how to naturally help your body excrete damaging radioactive elements (e.g. strontium and radioactive iodine) or detoxify (or scavenge) their noxious byproducts such as free radicals as well as deal with radiation burns by using dietary, nutritional, herbal and other naturopathic approaches and modalities. Note: Healing Cancer Naturally does not endorse conventional cancer and tumor treatment by radiation therapy (radiotherapy/X-rays).
In addition to the tips provided on this page, www.radiationdetox.com sells what looks like a well-researched ebook manual "How to Help Heal Your Body of Radiation Damage and Detox Away Ingested Radioactive Dusts" for $12. You can even download it for free. As with all such generous altruistic ventures, you are encouraged to support the author. So if you are interested in reading this guide and comfortably able to, I would suggest paying for this book rather than just taking it.
Macrobiotic diet against radiation sickness
writes in her classic
“If you are having any kind of radiation treatments, consider going macrobiotic.
According to Michio and Aveline Kushi, macrobiotics is very effective in curing
radiation sickness. In his book Macrobiotic Diet, Michio Kushi states: ‘At the
time of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki in 1945, Tatsuichiro Akizuki, M.D., was
director of the Department of Internal Medicine at St. Francis Hospital in
Nagasaki. Most patients in the hospital, located one mile from the center of the
blast, survived the initial effects of the bomb, but soon after came down with
symptoms of radiation sickness from the radioactivity that had been released.
Dr. Akizuki fed his staff and patients a strict macrobiotic diet of brown rice,
miso* and tamari soy sauce soup, wakame and other sea vegetables ,
Hokkaido pumpkin, and sea salt and prohibited the consumption of
and sweets. As a result, he saved everyone in his hospital, while many other
survivors in the city perished from radiation sickness.’”
Compare On Macrobiotics, Seaweed for important hints re purchasing quality seaweed and Modifilan.
Additional note by Healing Cancer Naturally: If you follow Dr. Johanna Budwig’s healing diet & protocol (which reportedly has also helped heal heavily irradiated (and “chemotherapied”) cancer patients formerly considered terminal and written off as beyond hope, see Budwig Testimonials), I would advise integrating the above-listed food items featuring prominently in the macrobiotic diet, such as seaweed, organic brown rice, miso soup etc. while leaving out or strongly curtailing honey and sweet fruit which are not permitted or heavily restricted in macrobiotics. Make sure to use truly organically grown foods: whole-grain rice is particularly laden with pesticide and similar toxic residues.
Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) baths (testimonial)
“If you were near Chernobyl or if you had an X-rays or radiation treatments for cancer, my radionics practitioner said that you can soak your body in baking soda baths to help pull out the radiation from your body. If you look all over the web, there is talk about patients who have had mouth cancer who were given radiation treatments to get rid of the cancer, and then told to gargle with baking soda mixed in water.”
Tip: If you look for online sellers of baking soda, you might pay a fraction for it as compared to buying in a store or pharmacy as long as you buy larger amounts (which you will need if you plan on bathing regularly). A friend bought it very cheaply at Ebay but there are bound to be similar venues where online merchants offer inexpensive baking soda.
Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) rinses
“The most effective measure to treat RT-induced mucositis in patients with head and neck cancer is frequent oral rinsing with a sodium bicarbonate rinse, to reduce the amount of oral microbial flora.” (Oncol Nurs Forum. 2002 Aug;29:1063-80. A research review of the current treatments for radiation-induced oral mucositis in patients with head and neck cancer. Shih A, Miaskowski C, Dodd MJ, Stotts NA, MacPhail)
Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) plus sea salt baths
Similarly to the above, Barbara Brennan recommends in her classic Light Emerging to take 20-minute baking soda cum sea salt baths (mixing half a pound of salt and half a pound of baking soda) to drain the body of DOR (deadly orgone energy as described by Dr. Wilhelm Reich) etc. Since such baths are “energy draining”, she advises to be careful when getting up from them (circulation) and lie naked in the sun afterwards to recharge one’s battery. I would add the salt when the bathtub is somewhat filled already to avoid possible damage to any metal parts.
Compare Sodium Bicarbonate Cancer Treatment: Treating Carcinomas & Destroying Tumors with Baking Soda: Is Cancer “Just a Fungus”?
Epsom salts are a cheap white powder made of crystals of hydrated magnesium sulfate (chemical formula MgSO4 7H2O) which is used as a purgative etc. Any pharmacy or drug store should carry it. Use in baths. Epsom salts baths were part of this “terminal” colon cancer victor’s protocol.
Dr. Donsbach writes: “An amino acid, cysteine protects against the damage of radiation by terminating the free radicals produced by ionizing radiation.” Cysteine, together with methionine, cystine, and their derivatives, is numbered among the “sulphurated amino acids” due to the fact that these amino acids contain sulfur in addition to carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen. Sulfurated amino acids are amply present in Dr. Johanna Budwig’s healing diet & protocol. (Note for cancer patients on Dr. Budwig’s Protocol: conceivably, taking isolated cysteine hydrochloride [versus taking it in its natural complex with other nutrients as occurring in organic foods] may not be compatible with the Budwig Diet which insists on shunning most man-made supplements.)
topical treatment of radiation burn scars
For skin irritations and severe burns
have read that dried calendula flowers available from herbal and health stores
or similar outlets as well as from the Internet make an excellent "tea" (to be
applied topically) for severe burns and many skin outbreaks (get organic quality
calendula if possible). While Weleda makes a Calendula Baby Cream, made with
sweet almond oil, lanolin, beeswax, biodynamic calendula officinalis flower
extract, perfume from natural essential oils and other ingredients, this may be
less effective than this much less expensive herbal calendula tea:
Pour a cup of boiling water onto 1-2 teaspoonsful of the florets and leave to infuse for 10-15 minutes (other sources may state different infusion practices and times). Use externally as a lotion or ointment (also recommended for cuts, bruises, diaper rash, sore nipples, other burns & scalds). Let dry after application. Completely safe and apparently non-staining. Can also be taken as tea.
[Liquid Calendula for sale apparently is preserved with alcohol.]
Echinacea for radiation burns (testimonial)
“A friend of mine with stage 4 cancer used echinacea (probably standard dosage) which had been quietly suggested by her radiologist - and after whole body maximum lifetime dose radiation, never developed the radiation burns which seem to be so common. No lobster look. Might be worth looking into.”
Aloe vera plant gel for radiation burns
Reportedly, in 1959 the FDA “concluded from studies conducted by the Atomic Energy Commission at the radiation burn center at Los Alamos Laboratories in New Mexico that aloe gel did have a healing effect on skin tissue”. Suggestion: Use the fresh gel found inside the leaves - for instance cut the leaf lenghtwise and apply it on the burn with the gel side facing the skin. Compare Aloe Vera - the medicine plant.
Epi-soothe cream for burns etc. (testimonial)
“I've been using Epi-soothe cream and it works wonderfully for rashes, burns, open sores etc.!” See azherbals.com/episoothe.php .
Kombucha tea (testimonial)
“I took kombucha all the way through my radiation (right over the stomach) and my doctor told me I was the only patient he'd had that never had nausea after being radiated in that area; it's wonderful for your stomach and intestines. It's much more potent and MUCH cheaper if you make it yourself. You just need a culture to start with. I make about 2 gallons at a time. It comes out to about 10 cents per bottle compared to $2-$3 in the stores.”
Kombucha is a fermented or brewed beverage which is cultured for a number of days. Combined with tea, it contains active enzymes, probiotics (lactobacillus bacterium), amino acids, antioxidants, polyphenols and saccharomyces boulardi. Apparently very powerful with constipation (such as drinking half a glass 15 minutes before breakfast, with dosis increased as you get used to it.
Two kombucha brewing tips
green tea in your kombucha brew:
Apparently green tea contains tumor growth inhibiting factors (a polyphenol named EGCG) as well as other polyphenols (such as flavonoids) reputed to lower cholesterol, counteract free radicals, exhibit natural antibiotic characteristics or prevent blood clotting. Other ingredients include vitamin C, carotene, fluoride, zinc, selenium, manganese, potassium, niacin & folic acid.
Minimize or eradicate sugar:
The consumption of processed or refined sugar has been shown to be a risk factor in a number of health complaints including cancer. “Sugar is required in Kombucha to provide food for the yeast resident in the culture. Research and experimentation has shown that the best type of sugar to use is ordinary granulated white sugar, i.e. sucrose. During fermentation the sucrose is broken down to its constituent parts, the simple sugars - glucose and fructose. Glucose is responsible for the formation of most of the organic acids with the exception of acetic acid, which derives from fructose. Glucose, which constitutes about 70% of sucrose, ferments far quicker than fructose and it is the latter which provides the residual sweetness in Kombucha.
If you prefer less sweetness in your Kombucha you can either a) extend the fermentation period by a few days, thus further acidifying the brew, or b) replace some of the sucrose with glucose (dextrose monohydrate), often found in home brewing shops described as brewing sugar. A 50/50 mix is a good start and will produce a beverage high in organic acids with minimal sweetness in a short time, 6 to 8 days. You will probably find the perfect mix by trial and error.”
So it seems to make sure there is no processed sugar left in your kombucha, it would be advisable to let it ferment as long as possible or reasonable to make sure all the sugar has been consumed by the yeasts.

Dr. Johanna Budwig’s health diet & protocol
& side effects from radiation treatments
Dr. Budwig expressly forbade cancer patients who followed her diet to treat their cancer, to concurrently use radiation and/or other cytostatic treatments (chemotherapy) arguing that any cytostatic treatments directly counteracted the “cytodynamic” effect of her diet, i.e. negated the effectiveness of the protocol (compare Budwig diet: what to avoid). Interestingly, Healing Cancer Naturally has come accross two reports where cancer patients did combine the Budwig Protocol with radiation treatments. Both reported that they did not have any side effects (or almost so) that the other patients were experiencing such as infections, pain, urination problems, etc. They attributed this to the Budwig protocol helping them go through the radiation treatments without a problem. So, similar to what I’ve occasionally seen reported from supplementation, the protocol might enhance the ability of one's system to alleviate some of the negative side effects associated with radiation by strengthening the body’s resiliency and natural defenses. Compare High-dose vitamin C and chemotherapy/radiation side effects.
Calcium Bentonite Clay
Great (and possibly accurate) claims are being made for Calcium Bentonite Clay as a general detoxifier incl. as a very effective ionizing radiation chelator, to be used both internally and externally (in baths etc.): “You have Calcium Bentonite Clay as your ally. By using Calcium Bentonite Clay as a lifestyle practice, as described in the book Living Clay, [Nature’s Own Miracle Cure, by Perry A. Smith], you will ... protect your body from the daily bombardment of radiation.... [R]adioactive material is of a positive charged ion. Calcium Bentonite Clay is a negative charged ion. Simply put, Calcium Bentonite Clay adsorbs and absorbs positive charged ions and you wash them off or pass them through your body. (quoted from survivingadirtybombattack.com/Download/Surviving%20A%20Dirty%20Bomb%20Atta ck.pdf).
One variety of calcium bentonite clay is considered the purest and best (i.e. most effective) available. The price is high but varies greatly among providers (I’ve seen the cheapest offer so far at ebay at 20 pounds for 60US$).
Algae: Chlorella & Spirulina
Chlorella ... touted as the perfect whole food ... has been found to improve the immune system, ... detoxify the body ... protect against radiation. (from the Vitamin Bible by Earl Mindell)--“In Chernobyl ... spirulina was used to help save many children from radiation poisoning. By taking 5 grams of spirulina a day for 45 days, the Institute of Radiation Medicine in Minsk even proved that children on this protocol experienced enhanced immune systems, T-cell counts and reduced radioactivity. Israeli scientists have since treated Chernobyl children with doses of natural beta carotene from Dunaliella algae and proved that it helped normalize their blood chemistry. Chlorella algae, a known immune system builder and heavy metal detoxifier, has also shown radioprotective effects. Because they bind heavy metals, algae should therefore be consumed after exposure to any type of radioactive contamination.” (from radiationdetox.com)--Note that chlorella and spirulina are rather expensive.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) in high or mega-doses reportedly “alleviates most of the horrible side effects of radiation therapy” and is also an effective help with chemotherapy treatment. More
concentrated brown seaweed extract and
reportedly a potent radioactive elements chelator
Excerpted from modifilan.com:
MODIFILAN was developed in Russia by a group of scientists who worked in the State Rehabilitation Institute, where victims of the Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe underwent treatment. The healing qualities of seaweed had been known for centuries [compare The importance of minerals and trace elements], so the Russian government instructed scientists to find an effective and powerful remedy for the radiation poisoning of that particular population. After trying out various forms of algae, one type yielded the best scientific data for this purpose. It was the brown seaweed known as Laminaria japonica, which grows wild in the northern Pacific Ocean off the coast of uninhabited islands far to the east of Russia, known as the Kurils.
One of the main qualities of Laminaria is its high content of sodium alginates, which are enhanced by the extraction process used to produce MODIFILAN. Alginates are the most effective organic elements that enable the human body to get rid of heavy metals and toxins. Not all "algae" have alginates; blue or green algae do not. According to scientific testing, only this brown seaweed does! The unique methods of extraction, as well as the quality of this seaweed, are key. MODIFILAN has about 50% of the highest quality alginates.
The low-temperature processing of MODIFILAN causes a sloughing off of the heavy outer fibers of the seaweed, while retaining the essential properties of the plant. This process further enhances its bioavailability, making the Laminaria more digestible. Forty pounds of raw Laminaria are required to make one pound of MODIFILAN. Eating 8 capsules of extract a day provides the same amount of good, organic micro- and macro-elements contained in an entire plate of this nutrient-rich seaweed.
And, it is not cooked. The oldest Japanese recipes of preparing seaweed tell us to eat seaweed raw, rather than cooked. Modern science affirms that an anti-cancer substance called Fucoidan, as well as beneficial polysaccharides, will break down if the seaweed is cooked. This was determined when studies were performed on the Japanese island of Okinawa, known for its lowest cancer death rate in Japan.
The Center for Preventive Medicine had 332 subjects in their study. For six months, 158 of the 332 subjects took Modifilan every day. After this time, those who had taken Modifilan had:
a. Significant shrinking of the lymph glands which had been enlarged
b. Improved digestive systems
c. Decrease in the incidence of bronchitis by 29.5%
d. No side effects
The Institute of Immunology carried out research on volunteers from the Chernobyl region, who were exposed to radiation and heavy metal poisoning.
The results of this research showed:
a. Modifilan is safe to use; is nontoxic and nonallergenic
b. Modifilan is very effective in preventing the absorption of and
promoting the excretion of radioactive elements (e.g.
strontium and radioactive iodine)
Some volunteers began growing back their hair which had fallen out due to exposure to radioactive elements.
Results of the research at Biophysical Institute are:
a. Modifilan is effective in preventing the absorption of and in
promoting the excretion of radioactive elements (e.g.
strontium, cesium, and radioactive iodine)
b. Modifilan works to protect the thyroid glands by decreasing
the accumulation of radioactive iodine. As a result of this
research, Modifilan was recommended both as a healing
and preventive food supplement.
The State Technical Medical Center concluded upon completion of their research that Modifilan is:
a. A safe food supplement
b. Recommended to increase lipid metabolism
c. Recommended to improve the function of the immune system
d. Safe to use and has no harmful effects on any bodily functions
At the Cardiovascular Center at the Sakhalin Hospital, patients were given up to ten grams of Modifilan every day for three months. The results showed:
a. Decrease of cholesterol by 26.5%
b. Decrease of B-lipoproteins by 25.1%
c. Decrease of triglycerides by 32.1%
No negative reactions were found in the kidneys, the liver and other organs. No side effects were found.”
Since Modifilan is a commercial product, the usual "caveat emptor" is likely to apply. It may be as effective (or perhaps more effective) and a lot cheaper to buy and consume the raw brown Laminaria seaweed itself.
"Enzymes substantially reduce the occurrence of metastases and the recurrence of
cancer. They make malignant tissues more sensitive to radiation, and at the same
time, reduce pain and other side effects of radiation. When used in conjunction
with surgery, they reduce postoperative pain and hemorrhage." (excerpted from
