Air travel exposes us to low levels of radiation and concentrated exposure to various electromagnetic fields from airport security screening machines, EMFs from the plane and fellow passenger tech items, and naturally occurring radiation from space, cosmic and solar radiation, produced by the stars and the sun. “You would be exposed to about 0.035 mSv (3.5 mrem) of cosmic radiation if you were to fly within the United States from the east coast to the west coast. This amount of radiation is less than the amount of radiation we receive from one chest x-ray.” – Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. While flying at high altitudes there is less atmospheric shielding, therefore, more exposure to radiation.
Home sweet home! A couple of things I like to do after traveling on a plane:
- Ground | Bare Feet to the Earth: Doing this for me hits the reset button and helps bring my body into balance at the cellular level not to mention it’s so soothing.
- Detox Bath: Pour 1 pound of pure salt and 1 pound of baking soda into the tub of comfortably hot filtered water. Use sea salt or kosher salt (with no additives). Soak in the tub for 20-30 minutes or until the water cools. The salt and baking soda are highly alkaline and can help neutralize any acidic effects radiation exposure may have on the body. [Bonus Add-Ins: Binders and MitoATP in the Bath Water]
- Binders with Carbon Technology: You can think of Binders like sponges that grab onto toxins within the body and safely remove them from the body. Research suggests that the fulvic and humic acids in Carbon technology bind and remove radioactive elements and contain the building blocks needed to help heal and repair.
- Support Drainage and Mitochondria: Hydrate with filtered water, make sure the bowels are moving, get quality sleep and get morning sun to charge up mitochondria.
