"Charcoal For Your Medicine Cabinet?
Why would I want charcoal in my medicine cabinet? Because it is one of natureÂ’s finest magnetic sponges for adsorbing our enemies: pain from burns, toxins, poisons, pollutants and bacteria, just to name a few. It may be used without side effects or overdose. It has no additives, chemicals, binders, etc.
Eden Healthfoods Activated Charcoal has not been chemically activated. We sought out the best coconut fibre, steam activated, pharmaceutical grade charcoal. When used internally, it is considered the most valuable single agent currently available for treating drug overdose, poisoning, stomach distress, intestinal gas, toxic condition.
This is why you find charcoal inside every water filter and why you will find charcoal being used in emergency centers around the world to deal with drug and alcohol overdoses. It will adsorb and render harmless over 3,000 known drug residues, pesticides, insecticides and just about every harmful chemical known.
Although not an herb, charcoal is invaluable in a number of ways. It is pure carbon and will adsorb (not absorb, but bind with) 29 of the 30 most dangerous poisons, thus neutralising them.
This is because more surfaces of the charcoal have been exposed. The surface area of the charcoal is astounding, for it has millions of micropores with surface areas ranging from 400 to over 1800 square meters per gram. There are 50,000,000 charcoal particles in 1 pound of charcoal.
Internally, charcoal cannot adsorb all poisons, but it can bind with, and thus neutralise many of them. Here are but a few of the many things it adsorbs.
Many industrial toxins including DDT and dieldrin, strychnine, malathion, parathion
Many medical drugs including aspirin, barbituates, cocaine, opium, nicotine, morphine, penicillin and sulphas.
Many inorganic chemicals including mercury, phosphorous, chlorine, lead, iron and silver.
In any type of acute poisoning, the best thing to do is to induce vomiting, followed by a large dose of activated charcoal diluted in water to render most substances harmless. Usually 30-60 grams (about half a cup) is needed suspended in water and taken as soon as possible after the injection of any toxin. Charcoal can also be taken to take intestinal gas (about a teaspoon in half a glass of water) followed by another glass of water. It is also very good for diarrhoea. This is why many travellers do not travel without it. In case of collitis or unusual chronic inflammations of the bowel, a charcoal slurry solution can be made by stirring powdered activated charcoal into water. Then use only the cloudy solution that results after the liquid has set for a couple of hours. This slurry enema will reduce inflammation locally giving considerable relief. Externally you may use it as a poultice on wounds, skin infections, snake bites and inflamed body areas.
Take ½ Â– 1 ½ teaspoons of powder in ½ cup of water. Swallowed, spread onto a poultice or taken as a slurry (details above)."
