Has your doctor said you should have a “preventative CT scan”? This is one of the relatively new techniques used by the conventional medical community to pump you full of radiation under the guise of keeping you cancer-free. (What?)
Much like mammography, which can be quite dangerous, these types of screenings often do much more harm than good. Not only are you exposed to massive amounts of radiation when you’re not even experiencing symptoms, you may be diagnosed with a disease you don’t have due to a false positive result!
According to Dr. David J. Brenner, director of the Center for Radiological Research at Columbia University: “The average radiation dose from medical imaging has increased more than six-fold over the last 30 years, with CT scans being the largest contributor.”
In other words, it’s kind of like taking your car to a questionable mechanic; if you don’t have a problem when you walk in, you just might when you walk out.
Full-Body Preventative CT Scans May Do More Harm Than Good
From the Food and Drug Administration – “At this time the FDA knows of no data demonstrating that whole-body CT screening is effective in detecting any particular disease early enough for the disease to be managed, treated, or cured and advantageously spare a person at least some of the detriment associated with serious illness or premature death.”
The FDA even prohibits manufacturers from marketing their machines for use in healthy people.
Sometimes, a CT scan is not only ineffective and dangerous but completely pointless. For example, it’s very hard to see anything in the digestive tract without intravenous or oral contrast fluid, which is rarely used in preventative imaging scans.
Even the American College of Radiology discourages full-body scans in patients who exhibit no symptoms.
Other Imaging Scans You Probably Don’t Need
If your doctor suggests the following scans, get a second opinion:
- ·Chest X-Ray Before Minor Surgery
Unless you have heart or lung problems, there is really not medical need for a chest X-ray before minor surgery. As a matter of fact, these tests may produce a false positive that may delay surgery and cause further unnecessary imaging tests.
- ·Sinus CT Scans
Chronic sinusitis affects millions but a sinus CT scan is rarely recommended as part of diagnosis and treatment. Sinus CT scans are only recommended for acute, infectious sinusitis where there is a high risk for complications.
- ·Back Pain Scans
Unless the back pain is caused by an acute and sudden injury such as a car accident, image scanning is rarely recommended for the first 6 weeks of pain.
- ·Bone Density Tests
If you’re under the age of 65 (female) or 70 (male), a bone density test is an unnecessary risk.
According to the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology, people at low risk for cardiac conditions are not recommended to undergo annual electrocardiograms.
- ·Brain Imaging Scans
Incidents of fainting and migraine headaches often prompt over-eager physicians to order brain imaging scans. According to the American College of Physicians, if the patient doesn’t present with seizure or other neurological symptoms, brain scans are unlikely to be effective in diagnosis.
How to Detoxify Your Body After Exposure to Excessive Radiation
If you have been exposed to radiation from medical treatment, there are a few things you can do at home to detoxify your system and potentially prevent the development of serious disease.
- ·Detoxifying Bath
For a radiation-detoxifying bath, mix 3 cups of Epsom salts and 1 cup of baking soda to a tub filled with water as hot as is comfortable to you. Soak for 20 minutes. Drain the tub. Rinse with lukewarm water and, if you’re brave, follow with a cold spritz to revitalize your circulation and boost your immune system. (Note: Do not use Epsom salts if you are allergic to sulfur, diabetic or pregnant).
- ·Organic Brown Rice
Whole grains such as organic brown rice encourage the absorption and removal of waste products and helps your body maintain a middle-range pH, which makes you more naturally resistant to radiation.
After the atomic bombing of Japan, Tatsuichiro Akizuki, M.D., Director of the Department of Internal Medicine at St. Francis’s Hospital in Nagasaki fed his staff and patients a strict diet of brown rice, miso and tamari soy soup, wakame, kombu and other seaweed, Hokkaido pumpkin, and sea salt while prohibiting the consumption of sugar and sweets.
These patients survived the radiation exposure while others in the hospital perished.
- ·Bentonite Clay
Bentonite clay is a medicinal clay that has been used for centuries for the purposes of detoxification. Bentonite clay has a negative electrical charge, which draws positively-charged radiation toward it so it can be safely flushed from your body.
- ·Reishi Medicinal Mushrooms
Reishi medicinal mushrooms contain beta glucans that have been shown to provide protection against dangerous gamma radiation. They also contain potent antioxidants to help boost your immune system and help your body heal itself.
Remember, it’s your body. Don’t allow a doctor to bully you into a procedure that could be potentially dangerous for your health. Do your own research. Get a second opinion. Explore your alternative options. It could save your life!
There Are Many Nutritional Cancer Cures and Treatments
Don’t get sucked into believing that chemotherapy, radiation, CT scans, and surgery are your only options for cancer treatments and prevention. I’ve just explained how CT scans can actually help cause cancer. However, there is a lot that you can do through nutrition to treat and prevent cancer.
The best part is you can do all of this without stepping a foot into a hospital, doctor’s office or treatment facility. In fact, you can cure yourself from the comfort of your very own home!
I know it sounds too good to be true, but in fact, there are six over-the-counter remedies that have the power to fix your body. I can’t go into too much detail here, but you can read about the other ways to heal cancer naturally here:
