This Simple Ingredient Can Boost Your Health 6 Ways

(The Best Years in Life) Many emergency vehicles and emergency rooms are equipped with food grade activated charcoal as an antidote for poison victims and acetaminophen (Tylenol, etc) and other pharmaceutical overdoses. Food grade activated charcoal powder can be mixed with water and ingested or used topically on your skin wherever or teeth. In other words, it serves both the inner and outer. It should be part of your medicine cabinet or supplement pantry.

It works by adsorbing (with the d not a b) toxins. The carbon molecules attract toxins and neutralize them with an electronic bond, then they escort the toxins out of your system via your stool. Some assert that you can only detox what's in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. But that is misleading.

The inner linings of your small intestines are covered with millions of small villi, tiny appendages that absorb nutrients into the blood's circulatory system, which cycles completely throughout the body at an average rate of once every minute, more with exercise and less at rest. After the abundant tiny villi get coated with activated charcoal, within a few minutes blood has cycled through them often enough for the charcoal to adsorb many toxins from the recycled blood. It acts as a blood purifier.

The powder mixed in purified water is rather tasteless, but it does have mildly sandy texture and is rather messy if you're the slightest bit sloppy. For those reasons, some prefer their powder in capsules. Those are handy for taking near food to get rid of gas, bloating, or food poisoning, but restrictive when it comes to heavy detox dosing away from meals. I prefer the powder in water routine. But that doesn't work well near meals. The food interferes with the watery powder too much. That's where capsules come in handy.

Food grade activated charcoal is a very fine powder produced from certain untainted woods or coconut husks. It should be stored and sealed in a glass jar instead of leaving it in a plastic container. Don't confuse this with those charcoal briskets used for outdoor grilling


Applications of Inexpensive Food Grade Activated Charcoal Anyone Can Use

(1) Emergency antidote for poison or pharmaceutical overdose, especially acetaminophen. Massive dosing is recommended, so mixed into water is the way to go. A rule of thumb is eight times the amount of poison. Since a lot of activated charcoal at one time is harmless, some suggest taking 50 grams of this very light charcoal powder as soon after poisoning, including food poisoning, as possible. There are some poisons charcoal can't handle.

(2) Whiten teeth: Simply take a wet toothbrush and dip it into a batch of powder or empty a capsule of the powder onto a wet toothbrush. Brush for a couple of minutes and clean up the mess in the wash basin before it adheres, then scrape you tongue if you don't like it black. This also helps remove bacterial toxins from your mouth that cause tooth decay and bad breath.

(3) General detox: Dr. Al Sears in South Florida uses food grade activated charcoal powder in water and recommends it to his clinical patients. He prefers mixing it with water and taking 20-30 grams a day of powdered activated charcoal (in divided doses and away from food) mixed with water over a period of 1-2 weeks. Others say less. I've done maybe 10-15 grams first thing in the morning for two weeks at a time.

(4) Gas, flatulence, and bloating: Okay, it could be from more than one issue and maybe only abstaining from certain foods will cure it permanently. But activated charcoal powder will give symptomatic relief. Try to take it one hour before food or two hours after. If timing's a problem, then maybe a gram of capsuled powder will suffice.

(5) Insect and snake bites: The toxins from their bites causes the irritation and worse with snake bites. With minor insect bites and bee stings, soak a cloth or gauze in a solution of activated charcoal powder and water and apply it to the area. For snake bites, do this and drink a bunch of the charcoal powder down also.

(6) Drug Detox and weight loss: A European method of street drug rehab was used to release residual drug toxins from lipids (fats). Fat is often manufactured to trap toxins and keep them away from organ tissues. Massive doses of niacin (vitamin B-3) not niacinamide, induce lipid breakdowns that release the fat but also the captured toxins, which can contaminate organ tissues.

If you've ever taken niacin that's not buffered, which is what niacinamide is, you probably experienced a niacin flush, which creates a temporary redness of the skin with a flush of prickly, itchy burning sensation. Not dangerous at all, but tolerance levels have to be nurtured gradually.

Not everyone had the convenience of sauna use anytime one wishes. So Dr. George Yu recommends drinking activated charcoal powder after a session of flushing with niacin to remove the toxins released by the dissolving lipids. He claims this is also a good way to achieve rapid weight loss. Video in source (6) below.

About the Author:

Paul Fassa started looking into natural health to overcome his unhealthy lifestyle. Then he developed more interest as he researched his articles for Natural News and Align Life.

He is amazed at the ignorance of natural medicine and how beneficial foods and herbs are constantly ignored or vilified in order to promote toxic foods and meds by Big Pharma, the FDA, USDA, and the AMA, what he likes to call the "Medical Mafia".

His blog is - "Healthmaven: Escape from the Medical Mafia Matrix." His Natural News articles can be reviewed here:
