Radiation Exposure & X-Rays

33395-x-raymanScientific studies have shown that homeopathy is effective for detoxing from all kinds of radiation. Homeopathy detoxes the body from the harmful effects of x-rays, mammograms, CT Scans, and long-haul flights. For such short term exposure to radiation, acute homeopathic radiation detox consultations can be booked through our website.

Homeopathy can also detox the body from radiation therapy and nuclear fallout. Our remedies can effectively be used during radiation therapy to mitigate side effects. Constitutional homeopathic treatment by a professional homeopath is recommended along with some of the dietary recommendations outlined in this article:

Detox & Protection from Radiation & Nuclear Fallout

Scientific Studies Prove that Homeopathy is Effective for the Detox and Prevention of the Harmful Effects of Radiation

Bildet J, Guyot M, Bonini F, Grignon MC, Poitevin B, Quilichini R. “The effect of dilutions of Apis mellifica and Apium virus on ultraviolet light-induced erythema in the guinea pig,” Ann Pharm Fr. 1989;47(1):24-32.

Dilutions of Apis mellifica (obtained from the whole bee) and Apium virus (obtained from bee venom) are used classically in homeopathy for inflammatory symptoms with edema, erythema and pruritus (Lewis triad). Using a method examining the evolution of UV induced erythema in the guinea pig, the authors show the following dilutions of Apis mellifica 7 CH(10(-14)), 9 CH(10(-18)) and of Apium virus 5 CH(10(-10)), 7 CH(10(-14)), 9 CH(10(-18)) exert an action on experimental erythema. The results are statistically significant for the dilutions at the 48th hour after irradiation.

OBJECTIVE: To examine to what degree an ultra-highly diluted homeopathic remedy, Arnica Montana 30C (AM-30C), used in the treatment of shock and injury, can modulate the expression of nucleotide excision repair genes in Escherichia coli exposed to ultraviolet (UV) irradiation.
METHODS: E. coli were cultured to their log phase in a standard Luria-Bertani medium and then exposed to sublethal doses of UV irradiation at 25 and 50 J/m(2) for 22.5 and 45 s, respectively. The UV-exposed bacteria were then supplemented with either AM-30C (drug) or placebo (P-30C). The drug-treated and placebo-treated bacteria were subjected to assay for DNA damage and oxidative stress 90 min after UV exposure. Several protocols like comet assay, gel electrophoresis for DNA ladder and intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation, and biomarker measurement like superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT) and reduced glutathione (GSH) were conducted. The mRNA expressions of the excision repair genes like ultraviolet repair uvrA, B and C genes (or also known as excision repair genes) were estimated by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction method.
RESULTS: The UV-exposed bacteria showed DNA damage and oxidative stress, as revealed by an increase in ROS generation, and a decrease in SOD, CAT and GSH activities. As compared to placebo, the AM-30C-treated bacteria showed less DNA damage and oxidative stress as manifested by a decrease in ROS generation, and an increase in SOD, CAT and GSH activities. AM-30C also up-regulated the expression of repair genes as compared to the control.
CONCLUSION: AM-30C helped repair the DNA damage through up-regulation of repair genes and also ameliorated the oxidative stress through the reduction of ROS generation and suitable modulation of anti-oxidative stress enzymes.

Cochrane Reviews investigate the effects of interventions for prevention, or treatment of illness, or rehabilitation from illness, in a healthcare setting. Most Cochrane Reviews are based on overviews of randomized controlled trials and other forms of evidence that are deemed to be appropriate. This review was conducted to determine what, if any, evidence (in the opinion of the Cochrane reviewers) exists for the treatment by homeopathy of the effects of conventional cancer therapies. A search through numerous databases revealed 8 controlled trials involved in this area of study, 7 of which were placebo controlled and 1 of which was against an active treatment. In total, the trials covered the outcomes of 664 people who’d been variously suffering from the adverse effects of radiotherapy, chemotherapy or breast cancer treatment. Of the 8, 2 trials exhibited beneficial effects from homeopathy. One of these involved a comparison between the effects of a topical corticosteroid and a homeopathic mother tincture of calendula for the prevention of dermatitis from radiotherapy where the calendula proved to be superior to the drug. The other involved the successful use of a homeopathic complex for stomatatitis caused by chemotherapy.

German researchers exposed albino mice to sub-lethal doses of x-ray. Homeopathic Ginseng and Ruta graveolens were given to the mice before and after exposure. Their condition was evaluated at 24, 48, and 72 hours. When compared with mice given a placebo, the homeopathic mice had significantly less chromosomal and cellular damage.

82 patients receiving radiotherapy were randomly assigned to receive placebo, Cobaltum 30C or Causticum 30C as a means of assessing the effects of these against dermatological reactions to the radiotherapy. The homeopathic medicines provided a significant reduction in the degree of radiation reactions when compared to placebo

Schlappack O. ”Homeopathic treatment of radiation induced itching in breast cancer patients. A prospective observational study.” Homeopathy, 2004, 93, 210-215.

25 women suffering from post-radiotherapy induced itching were treated at the University of Vienna’s Department of Radiotherapy and Radiobiology using individualised homeopathic medicines. After assessment (1-27 days after beginning the treatment) it was found that homeopathic treatment had been successful in 21 of the women enrolled in the study.


Case study related to radiotherapy and chemotherapy by Marijke Creveld

A woman was diagnosed with ovary cyst 40 years ago, and with breast cancer 8 years ago. She had breast sparing surgery. One year after she was diagnosed with metastases on both sides. She underwent radiotherapy for six weeks, after which mastectomy on both sides followed, including removal of the armpit metastases. All this was followed by experimental chemotherapy lasting several months.
Seven years after her surgery, radiation and chemotherapy she still feels very tired. She does not sleep well, looks yellow and still carries an odour of the chemotherapy/ of cancer. Her hair is thin, she cannot hear high pitched sounds and her feet feel dulled. She often has vertigo because of damage to her balance organs. For years she has refused to wear white sox, because she had to wear these going into the surgery room (note the Kaki white-and-black theme) She is very empathic to others and does not allow herself due rest. She visits the sick and finds there is always so much to do for other people.

She was born during the war in a house next to a railway line. The pram she was in was hit by German fire and in between the volleys she was rescued from it. Her parents were sheltering Jewish people in their home (which was strictly illegal, of course).

Prescription: six doses of Diospyros kaki Creveld 10M, once every week. In view of my present knowledge I would prescribe Radix Diospyros kaki Creveld 12 or 30K to be taken once every two days, for six weeks.

Follow up: Six weeks later her yellow skin colour is much reduced. She has more energy, able to take things with a grain of salt and gets rid of tasks. She feels less anxious and is sleeping far better. Her deafness and vertigo are unchanged.
Prescription: Thirty doses of Diospyros kaki Creveld 30K to be taken once every two days

Follow up: Four months later, the yellow colour and odour have disappeared. She shows much more energy. Sleeping has improved much. Her anxiety is very much reduced. She undertakes activities along with her husband.
Prescription: twelve doses of Diospyros MK, once every month. Seven months later she has improved even more. Others regularly tell her how well she is looking lately. Two years after this, she is still doing well. Vertigo and deafness remain unchanged.
