Addressing The Challenge

I’ve been asked by several people to address one of the most important concerns  that is currently occurring  on our planet – namely potential radiation exposure due to the ongoing and unresolved incident in Japan.

Before I begin to address some of the protective measures and solutions to the above challenges, I do want to bring forward some important reminders…

“Don’t give attention to the negative!” Papa Henry Auwae, Pookela Kahuna Laau Lapaau

I always remind myself that there are many ways to think about one particular thing.  If our thoughts are negative and dwelling on depressing issues, CHANGE THE CHANNEL!  Of course we have fears for ourselves and our loved ones – we wouldn’t be human if we didn’t.  But we do have a choice whether to dwell there or move towards a place that does not disturb our own personal balance and well-being. 

Fear is a vibration and frequency that brings on the very issues that we most want to avoid.

When you fear something, you become powerless.  There are many techniques to deactivate fear and I recommend locating and utilizing these techniques daily. 

Just researching and writing these blogs and exposing myself to the onslaught of fear-generated information creates feelings that I must continually be aware of and work to shift to a more balanced perspective.

So…I would like to acknowledge all of us and our work to bring ourselves  to a place in our hearts where there is no fear, rather strong emotions of gratitude and other feelings that create a state of health rather than emotions that contribute to dis-ease.   For more information on the power of emotions to create health or dis-ease, I recommend the book, Everything You Need to Know to Feel Go(o)d, Candance B. Pert, Ph.D.

Following are foods, food concentrates and supplements that have been shown to be Radioprotective.  I will list some sites to support the research (hesitantly as the material can be depressing). 

Here are my favorites based on my own research and ease of use:

  • Organic Miso:  one of many, many studies showing miso to be a powerful radioprotective food
  • Adequate Vitamin D: get you levels tested and be sure to keep levels between 50–80 ng/mL through supplementation of D3 and sun exposure
  • Iodine: I previously recommended seaweed for iodine supplementation but no longer do so (for obvious reasons).  I use Standard Process Prolamine Iodine, Nascent and Atomindine.  I recommend doing the Iodine Fulfillment Test to determine how much iodine you require.  Repeat the test often and always err on the side of caution as it concerns iodine supplementation.
  • Potassium Iodine Tablets (emergency use only)
  • Clay and ToxiClenz
  • Detoxifying soaks: Epson Salts baths and Baking Soda and Sea Salt baths
  • Chlorella (contains chlorophyll, which will increase your resistance to radiation).  Chlorella has the added benefit of pulling heavy metals out of the body.  For obvious reasons, be sure that your chlorella does not come from Japan.  Be certain of its purity.  I get mine from
  • Turmeric and organic Matcha Green Tea 
  • Tulsi Basil

More Radioprotective Foods:

  • Fermented Cod liver oil, coconut oil and olive oil (locate real olive oil. Most is cut with canola oil and other inferior oils)
  • Brassica vegetables (always cooked or fermented, as this family can decrease thyroid function when eaten raw) and high beta carotene vegetables
  • Beans and lentils (soaked, sprouted and cooked as usual) 
  • Potassium, calcium and mineral rich foods
  • High doses of food-based vitamin C (not ascorbic acid) 
  • High nucleotide content foods to assist in cellular repair including, chlorella,  algae, high quality Brewer's Yeast and liver from grass-fed animals
  • And as always, avoid sugars, substitute sugars, processed foods and wheat

And…Don’t worry…Be happy!

The time is nearing for the annual Lapakahi Conference in Hawaii where Papa Auwae’s na haumana (students) and Kupuna (Elders) gather each year.  This ancient tradition, reinstituted by Papa Auwae in the rituals, protocols and sharing of our Laau Lapaau elders is a time rich in learning and each year brings transformation to my own life.   Read more about Papa Auwae and Laau Lapaau

For the last few years of this conference, issues have been shared that address the dramatic and seemingly sudden changes in our Earth and consequently, the health of all living creatures.

For my next blog, I will be addressing some of these issues.  Until then, have a lovely holiday!
