Activated Charcoal


Anyone starting probiotics or any type of weight loss or detoxing regimen needs activated charcoal!  The use of Activated Charcoal was the best advice I had ever gotten from an MD.  It was recommended by a Pediatric Gastroenterologist after my daughter was given a round of Nystatin (Anti-fungal) & Flagyl (Oral Antibiotic) to treat a severe case of gut dysbiosis.  She had such gas & pain due to the die-off that he told me to try it.  For the last 15 years, it has been an absolute Godsend to our household!

Activated Charcoal is one of the safest and most effective natural adsorbent agents.  Because of this, using charcoal is the standard instruction given by poison control in many cases of serious poisonings.  Emergency medicine also uses charcoal in drug and alcohol overdoses to actually save lives.

Each particle of Activated Charcoal contains many small chambers and cavities that "captures" & binds-up unwanted toxic materials.  It absorbs acids, improperly digested foods, toxins, and gas, produced in the gastrointestinal tract.  These harmful toxins can then be safely carried out of the body through the digestive system.

In our household, we use activated charcoal on a regular basis!  In fact, it is one of the very few herbs that are in our first aid kit.  The entire family takes up to several capsules at a time on an empty stomach as needed on occasion.  I think everyone needs this product on hand.  I have never had a single person who I turned on to activated charcoal who used it & didn't think it was helpful!

The most common uses our family has for activated charcoal is when doing detoxification or any type of cleansing.  It is especially useful when recovering from illness when there are a lot of aches and pains.  We take charcoal if anyone is on antibiotics, starting on probiotics or cultured foods, or doing some type of parasite / invasive organism cleansing.  Basically any time a die-off, detox or healing crisis occurs or is expected.  Anytime someone is overly sensitive to stress, noise, lights or emotionally, physically or mentally the charcoal has provided quick relief.

Taking Activated Charcoal is my standard instruction to people who have common emotional issues & don't feel like essences have helped enough.  When charcoal is needed often to handle stress, sensitivities or over-stimulation, panic attacks etc. it is usually an indication that a yeast, parasite or other cleansing is in order.

It can also be helpful during times of "weight-loss plateau" or even "ketogenic flu".  All of these things are pretty much caused by autointoxication.  The fact is our body stores toxins it can't rid in our fat cells.  As we begin to lose weight & have fat melted off, it liberates these toxins.  Therefore, we can experience all sorts of unpleasant side effects.  In the effort to keep these toxins at bay, our body will stall out the fat loss.  In other words, we hit the weight loss plateau.
