DIY Stewed Apples: That may help to Reduce 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 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. I do share a bit about the research uncovered so far on 5G and the level of radiation it produces (i.e. EMFs).

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 allow the body to detox them from the body.
  • Pears – Also high in pectin which helps bind to radioactive residues/materials and remove them from the body.
  • Kelp, seaweed and sea vegetables – 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.
  • Kale (and other leafy greens) – Beta-carotene has radio-protective effects in the body. According to Adytum Sanctuary, “Natural beta-carotene protects against the lipid oxidation and acts as a fatty acid antioxidant radio-protector.”
  • Beets – According to One Green Planet, ““studies have shown that rats eating a diet heavy in beet pulp were able to more effectively reduce the effects of radioactive cesium-137 than rats who did not eat beets. In fact, the beet-eating rats absorbed and detoxified up to 100% more effectively than the control group animals.”
  • Broccoli The brassica family plants can protect cells from the damaging effects of radiation. Other brassica vegetables include brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, swedes, turnips, collards, cress, kale, kohlrabi, mustard, and bok choy.

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.

Homemade Stewed Apples

A healthy recipe that can be enjoyed by the whole family (even little ones).


  • 3-6 organic green apples
  • 1 tsp organic lemon juice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cardamom
  • Splash filtered water


To make:

  1. Chop apples up into chunks (compost the cores). If you prefer you can peel the apples beforehand, but I leave my apples unpeeled, as most of the nutrition is just under the skin.
  2. Place chopped apples into a large saucepan, add a splash or two of water, then add in the lemon, spices and honey, and gently mix to incorporate.
  3. Heat over medium heat for a few minutes, stirring often. Let cook for 10-20 minutes, or until apples are soft, stirring throughout. Add more water if needed. 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(s) or a storage container, or enjoy right away!
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.

As always, this is not personal medical advice and we recommend that you talk with your doctor before trying or using any new products. It’s important to check with a doctor before taking this or any new product, especially if taking any other medicine or supplement or if pregnant or nursing. Be sure to check ingredients to make sure there is no risk of an allergic reaction.
