Lola,
Do you take Harmonia? I did last year then for some unknown reason didn't re-order.
So taking Deflect and Harmonia would have me safely covered?

...I am a little concerned living in California per the latest news coming out of Japan....wind currents, more serious problems than actually reporting, etc.

Although I think it would cause more harm than good if people started taking potassium iodide without a real reason,

What Dr. D said is what i've been hearing on my local news.  I think the worst thing is to go into panic mode!.  I heard that Japan is requesting the potassium iodide tablets from the us, but it's being sold out everywhere and people are actually trying to sell it for around $200.00 a bottle on ebay!!!!.  

I think it should be saved for the people who are actually in need of it right now, the Japanese people and the 86,000 american military personnel/families who are stationed in Japan.  I was just checking the website of the airbase in Japan that i was born on and they are detecting levels of radiation, so i hope action is taken soon on getting them out of there or providing them all with potassium iodide tablets!.

Very useful thread, and I especially appreciate Dr D's reply. Thank you!

I also have the question that if I take Deflect every day, would that cover my fucus needs? (Though I realize Fucus Plus has a much higher concentration of fucus than Deflect... so I probably should up my dosage of Deflect from the current once a day.)

Quoted from san j


Sea vegetables, daily, were always recommended in macrobiotics for protection against environmenmtal toxins. It was recommended that they be taken in miso soup; they believed that the combination was important.



I was just about to post the same thing.

I consume sea vegetables regularly- I aim for daily, but that doesn't always happen.

Yesterday afternoon, after reading about Lola's iodine skin test, I decided to go ahead and paint some iodine on my foot. It's been more than 21 hours and the patch is still visible- so I guess that means I have plenty of iodine?

I wonder if sea vegetables are going to get more expensive now, as many used to come from Japan. I imagine that sea veggies can absorb radioactive iodine the same way that humans can, so Japanese sea veggies might be unfit for consumption now (excluding those already in stores that were harvested  before this disaster.) On checking, I see that my dulse comes from Maine, but my kombu from Japan. Maybe I should stock up on the Japanese kombu while I can.

I was just thinking about that, Ruthiegirl.

I am also thinking of the Japanese people and how regularly they consumer seaweed, kelp and miso. I think that must help the population to a certain extend--by how much I don't know, given that some of them live so close to the nuclear power plants. But I would assume they have very good thyroid function in general.

Ruthiegirl,
I thought i heard that you should paint a spot on your inner thigh, do you if one way is more accurate (foot or thigh) than another?.

Looks like i may have spoke to soon about not panicking!.  They said that the radiation will be in California tomorrow but not to worry because it won't be harmful, well i think i'll go paint a patch of iodine on and start downing my granulated kelp!.

Belletomane,
You make a very good point!.

I was just at the health food store. Upon check-out there was a small sign posted at the counter stating a there would be a max amount of potassium iodide sold to individuals.  So I asked the clerk about that; she told me, yes, it has been crazy and there's been a run on it - SO! I came here to see what you all were saying about it.  Good thing.  Good info.  I'm ordering fucus in my next order but am curious about that test Lola mentioned too.  I've been taking Harmonia for a few months now - I don't know if its the Harmonia or what, but as if I couldn't feel better on this diet...I  feel even BETTER!  My energy has increased, my sense of well being has increased - its fantastic.  And my weight is dropping...looking better all the time!  Thanks all & thanks,again, Dr. D ~

...I am a little concerned living in California per the latest news coming out of Japan....wind currents, more serious problems than actually reporting, etc.  

I would be, too!  I think most of the US is safe from the fallout, but the Pacific coast is another story.  I think you are right to be ...alert, shall we say?  Alert and keeping up with the latest, and stocking up on bladderwrack!

Selfishly speaking, I'm concerned about several staple items in my diet over the long term.  The first is my beloved Haiku brand kukicha green "twig" tea which is imported from "the Uji District" in Japan.  If I have it straight, it is located here:

Edited to add:  removed link because I couldn't get the specific one to load:  but Uji is in Kyoto, Japan.

But it's a small island.  And the fallout area from this epic, monstrous nuclear tragedy is potentially huge.  Currently, my tea is on sale at my HFS and I've been stockpiling it even before the tragic events in Japan unfolded.  I plan on literally clearing out their shelves of it next time I'm in the HFS.  I won't be buying it again after that.  I'm so sad about it, not just for me but for Japan.  People will (sometimes rightly, sometimes probably wrongly) be scared to buy foodstuffs from Japan, which will just be yet another devastating blow to this dear country that is suffering so much already.

I'm also scared about how fall-out over the Pacific could get into the food chain and impact it, and us all, far from Ground Zero.  Specifically, I eat a LOT of wild salmon from Alaska.

I'm really P*SSED at my species for messing up shrimp (BP Gulf oil disaster), kukicha, salmon and basically EVERYTHING.  Will we EVER LEARN?

"History shows again and again how nature points out the folly of man:  GODZILLA!"

It is chilling to think of the mythical "Godzilla" and that fact that he rained terror on Tokyo (didn't he?  Never saw the film myself, but everyone somehow knows through cultural osmosis that Godzilla terrorized Tokyo, right?), in light of this.  To me, Godzilla represents our (the human species) own bad choices run amok.  And now Tokyo, all of Japan, and beyond, is being terrorized by a real Godzilla.  True, nature had a hand in this disaster--a huge hand, but as terrible as the 9.0 earthquake and tsunami were all by themselves, the nuclear disaster is what WE'VE unleashed.  We humans knew Japan was in an earthquake zone, just as we know California (where there are nuke plants) is, just as we know that ALL nuke plants are inherently too dangerous to justify their existence.  Yet we build them ANYWAY.  Because we do not yet understand that nature has certain laws that you don't violate.  We need to develop energy sources like solar and wind, for example, as I said earlier, that work in harmony with nature instead of violating nature.  That is the whole key to EVERYTHING in life, people:  we are meant to RESPECT and work in harmony with nature, to understand that we are a part of it, not above it.  Just because we CAN do something, doesn't mean we SHOULD.

PT,
I love my kukicha tea and wild Alaskan salmon, too! I consume both at least twice a week! I have plenty of Deflect but the little bit of Harmonia is from last year. Does anyone know the shelf life?

Illinois is the state with the most nuclear reactors in the USA.  I heard on the news that none of them are on the top 10 list of ones in potential danger.  I can’t recall where the others are but I think the one in NY is the worse.  I was in my hotel room doing other things with CNN on in the background.

Hi cajun!! Is it just "what they want us to hear"??!!! Or do you mean we interpret it just how we want to?

Anyone have any further advice re o's with underactive thyroids & iodine/kelp etc? & ppl like Goldie who think she reacts to Bladderwrack?

I am still confused as to what I should & shouldn't take??!! I am also trying to advice my daughter in LA who eats for her BT (O)

A couple of radiation detection maps of the U.S.  I can't speak for the accuracy of either, but it's something to check in with for those who are concerned.

How much Bladderwrack for adults or kids? lactating moms and old folks would be nice..

for life, for now or in addition to foods we eat?  like I do not like kelp, no sea foods, so what all does it do for differences?
