I was advised by a friend to not put my homeopathic medicines or supplements containing enzymes through the x-ray machines because it can ruin enzymes- and ask the authorities to be hand searched instead. Is it true?

My beliefs and experiences are, that if you wrap the enzymes up in thick tin-foil, then x-rays cannot penetrate through.
Also if you have paperwork to show that you have a reason to carry them, the authorities will normally hand-check them, thus not passing them through the x-ray machines.
