There comes a point in one’s life where sometimes for our own well being we need to be exposed to some sort of radiation, and we have to do it willingly.
CT Scans and X-Rays are the tools of modern science, and they even show how far we’ve come since, well, the stone age. Thanks to the advancements in modern science and technology humans aren’t as hard to kill.
I really understand that CT Scans and X-Rays can be very inevitable for those of you who have to either get them done on a regular basis, or if it’s a normal X-Ray that you had to get done because you tripped over something and needed to make sure there weren’t any internal injuries.
But have you ever thought, that these little radiation rays, can really harm you? In the long run, they stack up and just harm your body.
Is there a way to reverse radiation damage from CT Scans and X-Rays?
Fortunately, yes! There’s a ver natural and really easy way to avoid this sort of radiation damage from CT Scans and X-Rays. And you’ll be really surprised when I tell you, it’s by eating. Eating the right kind of food, or rather taking the right kind of diet has been known to contribute to a healthier overall being, and it’s true in this case as well.
All you have to do is add these 5 Foods in your diet:
A study has found that flaxseeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, these fatty acids are already known for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory and it is these properties that work as a protector from radiation damage from CT scans and X-Rays.

Onions have long been recommended as a source of hair growth treatment in Ayurveda. And now, modern science has found one more use of the vegetable. Onions are loaded with cysteine, cysteine is a sulphur containing amino acid found in proteins.
And this cysteine helps in protecting your body against radiation, it also helps detoxify your liver and kidneys. (See: Source)
We’ve all heard the old “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” And we know that it is true. But what most of us never knew, was, “An apple a day keeps the radiation away” too or so it would seem.
Apples are loaded with pectin, yes the same pectin used to set jams and jellies, usually ripe fruits have them. Researchers have found out that pectin helps in binding radioactive residues and remove them from your body. (See: Source)
So next time you had out for an x-ray, or a CT Scan, just come back home and have an apple.
The Chinese mainstream medicines always had ginger in them, mostly. Even many Indian remedies, stated in Ayurveda do. Many are already aware of the benefits of ginger, and ginger has yet another benefit. In vitro tests, it was proved that ginger a certain component in the ginger root protects human white blood cells against genetic damage due to radiation. Well, all the more reason to add ginger in our tea’s now. (See: Source)
5. Green Tea
Well this last addition does not exactly count as “food” but I really felt the need to include it in here. I would say health benefits of green tea have only picked up a pace in recent years, although there is no denying that many of us always knew them.
But, another benefit that comes from green tea being rich in antioxidant is that these antioxidants help protect your DNA agains radiation damage. Thus, making green tea a great way to protect ourselves from the radiation damage our DNA might suffer from CT Scans and X-Rays. (See: Source)
