Easy Stewed Apples Recipe (that may help to Eliminate Radiation Exposure in the Body)

This is a new recipe that I’ve only just started adding into my diet on a regular basis, ever since my naturopath recommended it to me. She suggested I incorporate it into my diet as a way to help reduce and eliminate radiation exposure in my body, especially since they’ve started turning on the 5G networks around Australia (and also worldwide).

There is a lot of controversy around 5G and it’s impact on the human body, and it will be a long time before we actually know the impact it has on us and the world (i.e. ecosystems, wildlife, etc). I do share a bit about the research uncovered so far on 5G and the level of radiation it produces (e.g. EMFs) in my blog post here (if you want some extra reading 😉 ).

This apple stew is such an easy recipe to make (it only takes 20 minutes!), and it tastes ABSOLOUTELY DELICIOUS!

Now why do apples help with radiation exposure?

Glad you asked. Apples are rich in pectin, which has the ability to bind to radioactive materials and eliminate them from the body. So, as the saying goes, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” in helping to fight radiation 😉 .

Other foods that may help protect against radiation exposure include:

  • Cilantro (a.k.a coriander) – may help move heavy metals and radioactive material out of cells and into the detoxification pathways in the body.
  • Pears – also high in pectin which helps bind to radioactive residues/materials and remove them from the body.
  • Kelp – contains organic iodine which will drench the thyroid so that no more iodine is needed by the body, preventing radioactive iodine from being absorbed.
  • Spirulina – may help reduce radiation exposure ( was used during the Chernobyl disaster, according to David Herzog, a dose of 5g of spirulina over 45 days was used and successfully helped in fighting radiation poisoning.
  • Miso – may help detoxify the body of radiation.
  • Chlorella – fantastic for promoting detoxification in the body as it can bind to heavy metals and other toxins, flushing them out of the body.
I like stewing my apples in plenty of water (which I enjoy as a health tonic afterwards), but you can also stew the apples in just a splash of water if you desire a thicker, more apple puree-like consistency.

How to make Stewed Apples

A healthier recipe for stewed apples, that can be enjoyed by the whole family (even little ones).

If you’d like your stewed apples to be more of a puree, for instance if you’re giving it to little ones who are weaning off milk onto solids, just leave the apples to stew for a little longer, until they start to break down and become mushy.


  • 3-6 organic apples (I use green apples as they contain less sugar)
  • 1 tsp organic lemon juice
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cardamom
  • filtered water


To make:

  1. Chop apples up into chunks (compost the cores). If you prefer you can peel the apples beforehand, but I tend to leave my apples unpeeled, as most of the nutrition is just under the skin.
  2. Place chopped apples in large saucepan and fill halfway with filtered water (or until apples are just covered). Add in lemon juice and spices (and, if using, honey or maple syrup), and gently mix to incorporate.
  3. Heat over medium heat for a few minutes, stirring often. Once boiling, reduce heat to a low simmer and cover saucepan with a lid. Let cook for 10-20 minutes, or until apples are soft, stirring occasionally. If you prefer the apples to be completely broken down (say if using as baby food for infant), continue cooking until apples become mushy and break apart.
  4. Once cooked to your liking, Let cool then pour into glass jar or storage container, or enjoy right away! I like having the stewed apples in a bowl as a “dessert” or “snack”, and enjoy the stewed apple liquid as a healthful tonic or “dessert tea” after dinner. It’s very refreshing cold, too (like iced tea)!
The apples taste absolutely delicious on their own for dessert after dinner, or you can even drizzle raw honey over the top of them for an extra sweet flavour. The liquid can be enjoyed as a health tonic, as a “dessert tea” after dinner (simply add some hot water to it), or as a refreshing “iced tea” (just add in a few ice cubes and it’s good to go!).
