To Whom it may Concern,

I am not sure of where to place this question in terms of topic.

My girlfriend has been suffering from nausea, tiredness, itchy skin, hair thinning amongst other symptoms.

She was treated for an Underactive Thyroid and started to recover, however not fully.
She then visited a homeopath who said she has radiation sickness which they say is caused by a cubic zirconia ring she has worn for 8 years.
I have researched online and can find no references to the cubic zirconia rings causing radiation sickness or in fact even being radioactive.
She says they checked the ring in front of here and that radiation was picked up from it..

Is this diagnosis possible or is there a more probable explanation?

Hoping you can shed some light on this!

  • Millions of people wear CZ rings and don't get sick. Sooo... It *is* theoretically possible, however, that it is not the stone that's radioactive but the metal used in the setting. Irradiated metals are sometimes used by unscrupulous jewelry manufacturers. There was news coverage of this way back in the 1970's. If you are in doubt, ask your local hospital radiology department to evaluate the ring with a geiger counter.

  • That is insane; I don't know any licensed homeopath that would make such a statement. They may have just been a homeopath in their own mind.Radiation sickness has many different forms. Nuclear fallout from test bombs and nuclear plants affect the air quality all around the world. Many so called common colds are caused by such fallout. Dr. Hazel Parcells, a true doctor, would prescribe the following for radiation (and cell phone tower and other waves):4 pounds baking soda4 pounds sea saltsoak in very hot bath until water cools you may repeat the bath until well; but your friend sounds like a hormone thing and may need thyroid meds adjusted and also may need to stay on them. Have her see an endocrinologist. The baths won't hurt anything and if a slight rash appears on the skin, that means it has drawn the radiation out. It does not always cause a rash, but may... I would report that homeopath to the licensing board for your state.

  • That sounds like interesting stuff, but the real treatment is cheaper and is sea salt and baking soda...however, I am doubtful if the original poster has radiation sickness and is being diverted from seeing an endocrinologist and regulating her thyroid or other hormones.

  • Do you have any clinical research that shows that sea salt or baking soda can remove radiation from the cells of the body?

  • Nope, this is not insane. If you don't believe me (I am a jeweler) then maybe these will suffice: Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Vol 205 (July 29, 1968), page318, "Contact Dermatitits from Gold Wedding Ring" JAMA Vol 206 No. 9, November 25, 1968, Dermatitis Caused by a Radioactive GoldRing" JAMA Vol. 206, No. 3 (1968), "Radioactive Gold Dermatitis" JAMA Vol 205 (August 19, 1968), "Radioactive Jewelry as Cause of CutaneousTumor" Radiological Health Datqa and Reports, May 1969, page 185, "Radiological HealthAspects of Spent Radon Seeds" FDA Drug Bulletin, March 1981, "Skin Lesions and Radioactivity in Jewelry"

  • Do you have any clinical research that shows that sea salt or baking soda can remove radiation from the cells of the body? Absolutely...Dr. Hazel Parcells (deceased) worked with the scientists in Nevada in the 50s during the nuclear test bomb phase. Her data and research are part of her body of work. She has 3 doctoral degrees and taught this information at Sierra Sands University.

  • Just read something on this this week, Monsterlove, and yes, I agree, however my understandings is that this works via ingestion, not bathing. Also, it can be dangerous as ingestion throws off the electrolyte balance, thus it should be done under a doctor's care. Can't remember what journal it was in-- this week's JAMA, I think.

  • No, you don't need to ingest. I said "bath". The "Doctor" got the formula from the scientists who worked on the nuclear test bombs in Nevada. They, themselves used it each time they did test bombs, but they were not allowed to share the secret formula with the general population.You can, however, take one forth of a teaspoon of sea salt and soda in a glass of water, along with the bath.
