Radioactivity: The Fukushima Nuclear Hazards

Posted to Subscribers on 12 March 2011


Dear Subscribers,

Emails about radioactivity have already started filling my inbox. The nuclear reactor in Japan is in trouble and radioactive cesium is being released as a vapor (steam) to reduce heat and pressure in the area of the reactor where meltdown is occurring. In fact, two nuclear power plants are grappling with emergency safety measures. This is but one of the many tragic consequences of this catastrophe, but it is sure to raise the level of opposition to nuclear energy.

Going back decades, groups of us used to stand in the snow in New Mexico holding our candles in silent protest. Helen Caldicott was the main scientific voice in those days and she compared nuclear energy technology to slicing butter with a chain saw. It was against this backdrop that I vehemently opposed the presidential aspirations of the then Sen. Obama because his concepts of meeting our energy needs were completely out-of-date and dangerous. I was very surprised to see Helen Caldicott's name in a number of recent emails so I began to wonder what is afoot.

Uranus entered Aries last night with a nuclear challenge!

Radioactive cesium (135) has a half life of 2.3 million years and is classified as hazardous because it is highly reactive, even with water. With by-products with such unimaginable half lives, there is simply no justification for developing systems based on radioactive components.

Cesium-137 has a half life of 30 years. It is a product of nuclear fission (Uranium) and is the primary component of nuclear fallout. It is therefore the main radioactive material likely to travel in the atmosphere and fall out way beyond the islands of Japan. Cesium-137 has been the main long-term contaminant in Europe following the Chernobyl disaster. It explodes on contact with water.

Nuclear Contamination

Leaks from nuclear plants have contaminated the biosphere and are generally more hazardous to plants than animals (including humans) but exposure can lead to infertility, cancer, or death. High exposures cause fairly rapid death. Exposure is not limited to inhalation but can occur through secondary contact with plants and animals that have become contaminated.

We are no longer speaking hypothetically because the cesium has been released and the areas around the Fukushima Daiichi Plant have been evacuated, adding to the dislocation already experienced in Japan. As someone who lived in Japan and who visited both Nagasaki and Hiroshima, I can only imagine the agony felt by those who are experiencing another nuclear disaster. Truly, my heart goes out to everyone in Japan as well as everyone in the path of the air currents that will now carry this radioactive cesium beyond the shores of the Land of the Rising Sun.

In other contexts, I have mentioned a book by Steven Schechter on "Fighting Radiation and Chemical Pollutants with Foods, Herbs, and Vitamins." The book is excellent and used copies can generally be found online.

Theories of Treatment

This subject is one I began investigating decades ago when Hawaii was suffering from nuclear fallout. Three times since then, I made renewed efforts to produce products that might alleviate some of the risks. One was during the fires at Los Alamos shortly before I left Santa Fe and then again after seeing the effects of radioactivity in Europe after the Chernobyl incident and also after irradiation as part of medical diagnostic or treatment procedures. I tried one more time when boning up on when Leuren Moret began sharing her findings surrounding depleted uranium.

Since there are many different types of radioactive particles, the premise of my formulating is to use a wide range of natural minerals and metals in their naturally occurring forms so that when exposed to something radioactive, the exposed person or animal has a chance to resist the radioactive insult by messaging that all possible storage sites in the body are already occupied. If the supplementation continues, the body has a chance to swap out radioactive particulates and replace them with stable non-ionizing trace elements.

The radioactive hazards are generally drying and produce symptoms of vata derangement. They have to be excreted by the kidneys, the same as mercury and other toxic metals. So, referring to the notes and formulations that I have been putting together for the last decades, I contacted my lab today and we will launch a new formula on Monday called Pacifi Ka. Please bear in mind that this was not plucked out of thin air. Radioacity is a problem I have been wrestling with for a long time, ever since visiting the museum in Hiroshima and looking at all the horrific pictures when I was a mere 20 years old.

Those living in Japan can, of course, consume a lot of miso soup and seaweed and these, in fact, turn out to be useful foods that aided recovery from the nuclear bomb attacks. Russians and Japanese have come to similar conclusions and described the mechanism by which the polysaccharides in various seaweeds inhibit metastasis of cancer. There is, of course, always a context for studies, the premise sometimes being that irradiation is an appropriate treatment for cancer so long as its side effects do not produce conditions worse than the original problem. For me that "if" was sometimes "IF".

What I saw in darkfield microscopy was complete fragmentation of white blood cells. My imagination sometimes gets in the way of proper language but when seeing something that is rarely seen much less understood by others, it is often difficult to communicate the relevance but clearly the two main longer-term consequences experienced by patients are stress on the bone marrow and ongoing chain reactions that continue to damage tissues. To address the bone marrow, we need nutrient rich food and herbs that are tissue protective, demulcent, and immune boosting. Astragalus is, of course, very high on this list and it is perfectly edible so if one wants to put a few pieces into soup, tea, or even breakfast cereal, it would be fine. I would perhaps recommend soaking the herb overnight in water so that more is extracted by the water.

A secondary complication is decreased fertility or sterility. The most demulcent fertility herb is probably dioscorea so I am also suggesting that people eat yams and sweet potatoes.

As for the name Pacifi Ka, it has a lot of meaning for me because at one time I was writing lyrics for music for the sacred sites on Earth. I began with Pacifica, a tribute to Mu, the lost continent which lingers only in mythology and esoteric literature. According to legend, Mu was matriarchal and before the fall, people lived in harmony with Nature. Of course, we now have an ocean where Mu was and this body of water was named to honor its calmness. I have therefore chosen this for the name of my formula, but spelled it Pacifi Ka to refer to its action on potassium.

Here are a few additional suggestions:


Sea salt and soda baths, half a cup of each to one tub of water, minimum 21 times.


Mucilaginous foods like beans, lentils, sweet potatoes/yams, sea vegetables, and lotus as well as watercress and vegetables high in beta carotene. Also, use garlic, miso, and cruciferous vegetables, like Brussels sprouts. Be sure to use high quality oils.


Adrenal and Antioxidant Support: ashwagandha, Siberian ginseng, rhodiola

Thyroid Support: kelp and other seaweeds, quality minerals

Bone Marrow Support: astragalus, jujube dates, dong quai

Fertility Support: dioscorea, suma, shatavari, maca


With prayers and blessings,
