Next came personal computers, microwave ovens, and mobile phones. X-rays and television have been other sources of frequent
exposure. There are also non-manmade forms of radiation to which we may be exposed : radon gas and Schumann waves.
As with heavy metals, there are people who deny that any form of radiation
causes harm to the human being; there are many others who have found the converse to be only too true.
I grew up during the fifties and sixties, downwind of Sellafield nuclear
power station in West Cumbria, UK. In 1992 breast cancer was diagnosed at an advanced stage of development; the same practitioner
found that my body was loaded with radioactive isotopes. The only time I had been anywhere there may have been contamination
had been during those growing years, when I suffered from chronic health problems that homeopaths working in Sweden in the
aftermath of the Chernobyl disaster, began to recognise as the result of radiation damage.
Spontaneous nosebleeds, anaemia, weakness, and intermittent fevers were some
of those symptoms.
In those days, sources of radiation were still scattered. Now, we are continuously
surrounded by some form of radiation, or ‘electromagnetic emission’. Until a couple of years ago, I could not
watch TV for long, use a computer at all, and would immediately get blurred vision, headaches, and great weakness, when under
flourescent lights, all sources of insidious electromagnetic ‘smog’ that we take for granted.
It is well worth learning more about what radiation actually is, how it can
affect our functioning (largely through the electrical and chemical aspects of nerve tissue), and how we can protect ourselves
from it : we may not be able to remove it from our environment - although we can decide not to have a TV, microwave,
flourescent lights, or a mobile phone - but there are many things we can do to help our internal cell milieu function optimally
even when we cannot avoid exposure.
All the forms of testing and treatment described in Mercury Poisoning apply to problems with radiation. Likewise, all the recommendations
relating to food, rest, exercise, air and water will help.
The following sites are specifically related to radiation :
1. Roger Coghill is a
foremost researcher into all forms of radiation. Do visit his site to find a wealth of information on the subject. He also
has a products section where all his books are available, as well as a useful array of magnetic and other protective devices
to help recover from radiation-related illness.
He has discovered a supplement, called Asphalia,
derived from a Welsh meadow grass, which apparently reverses damage caused by radiation.
This supplement is available from a site associated with his main site (above).

Other things you Can Do to Help :
1. Tissue Salts
During the nineteenth century, Dr Schussler was continuing
the great work of Dr Hahneman (the discoverer of homeopathy). Dr Schussler found that human cell life depends upon the presence
of twelve tissue salts. He found these salts were often all that was needed to return patients to robust health.
Tissue salts are particularly important for anyone suffering
radiation-related illness, because radiation depletes and degrades the milieu of the cell tissue, at both a chemical and electrical
level. Replenishment with the tissue salts helps the milieu to return to normal healthy function.
The following site gives more about the salts, and they can also be bought
from here :
Helios and Ainsworths are both homeopathic pharmacies where
remedies including the tissue salts are made by hand, especially for your order. The tissue salts are available as lactose
pill, or as a liquid preserved in alcohol, if you do not tolerate lactose. If you have a problem with alcohol even in small
doses, put each dose in a cup and add a tablespoon of not-quite boiling water. The heat will evaporate the alcohol leaving
the remedy intact. (The alcohol is there only to preserve the remedy).
Homeopathy is a useful tool in radiation-sickness, although it cannot be
expected to deal with the problem by itself.
Homeopathy was originally developed by Dr Samuel Hahnemann.
His work has been further unfolded by many researchers throughout the world.
Two approaches are :
a) Classical. The
classical homeopath only gives one remedy at a time, waits to see how the patient responds, then re-assesses the symptom picture
before choosing a follow-on remedy. S/he believes that if more than one remedy is given at a time it will not be possible
to accurately interpret the case for any follow up treatment.
b) Complex. Complex
homeopaths on the contrary believe that our bombardment with manmade substances now prevents the classic remedy from having
any effect - they believe that modern pollutants negate its potency.
They give combinations of remedies often mixed with herbal extracts, or may
prepare a remedy that contains the frequencies of all the pollutants the patient has been found to be afflicted with. The
theory is that this enables the immune system to identify the toxin and excrete it.
I have found this approach very useful, though inclined to produce a debilitating
Anyone suffering from environmental illness is so low in resilience, that
they need remedies which give strength and support, before any that may further weaken their resources, even if they understand
the principle that sometimes you ‘need to get worse before you get better’!
Don’t give up on homeopathy, it is a blessing to our age; but do take
care in seeking out a practitioner who has a more than superficial understanding of environmental illness : insist on getting
answers to all your questions before you book a session; if possible ask to talk to a previous client they have treated, with
similar problems as your own. Don’t be browbeaten into booking with them unless they have really convinced you they
have a deep understanding of the problem.

your symptoms, buy remedies online, and learn more about homeopathy.

homeopathics of Dr Reckeweg’s design, after that innovator’s death in 1985. The site includes

remedies, can be found at
3. Vibrational Essences
Dr Edward Bach was a surgeon
(UK) who believed that orthodox medicine was a crude intervention. He first studied homeopathy, hoping it would provide him
with a gentler form of healing. However, he found that even this failed to completely fill the need for a gentler approach.
His search led him to develop the now well known and revered Bach flower remedies.
Since then, workers throughout the world have investigated other plants,
animals, and environmental conditions, as sources of energetic frequencies with healing capacity. Below are links to some
of these ranges, that I particularly love. There are many, many more!
In the nineties, when I was first learning about illness related to heavy
metals and radiation, I began to use this range of essences, having found the range of complex homeopathics I had been given
invariably produced a worsening.
The Pegasus range includes flower essences, gem elixirs, starlight essences,
and combinations of all three. I found in particular that the gem elixirs, especially when combined with flowers, had a marvellous
capacity to regenerate tissue. Sometimes, even with these, there was some degree of ‘healing crisis’, but not
nearly as severe as with the homeopathics.
These come from the West Coast of Canada, and are truly very beautiful. They
are primarily flowers and sea creature essences. They were originated by Sabina Pettit, an acupuncturist.
This is the range of Steve Johnson. He also does gem and environmental essences,
which are powerful.
site provides a selection of other ranges.
4. Crystal Salt
There is quite a lot about this in the
section, yet I want to add here that this special salt, originating from
the Himalayas, and containing a particular crystal formation, is a most important aid for anyone suffering from radiation
The reason is that this salt enables electrical transmission to take place
within the cell tissue; information can again be conducted effectively. The crystalline form of the salt embodies a perfect
state of order, which is transmitted to the cell. The cell thereby has the information and energy it needs to heal itself.
Radiation degrades this capacity for normal transmission; the salt replaces

the only form recommended :
5. Tachyonic Products
This is something about which information is not readily available, and I am included a small word here simply because
I have found products made with tachyons very helpful.
Tachyons are minute, energy-transmitting particles that are normally around us, but which we do not as yet use very efficiently.
In Japan, more is known about them, and they are used for very many applications. A formula has been devised whereby an item
of clothing or jewellery is worn, which enables the wearer to make better use of the tachyonic energy in their environment.
In particular, I have found the headband extremely helpful to help maintain concentration and clear thinking in environments
lit by flourescent lights, and full of computers and other electronic equipment. I also use ear-rings with tachyonic beads,
which helps in the same way, though not as distinctly as the headband.
In the UK, these products are available from
