One of the most effective ways to gather up toxins in the body and eliminate them is by using activated charcoal. This natural powder comes from slowly burning wood, peat or coconut shells and then treating it with oxygen. It then acts like a highly porous sponge, enabling it to bind chemicals in the body, making it easier to flush them out of your system.
It’s been used in emergency rooms routinely for certain types of poisoning and removing impurities even after they have entered the bloodstream. Activated charcoal is not the kind used in your barbecue grill, but it can help remove the toxins and chemicals you breathe in from using those kinds of products.
Activated charcoal can remove toxins the body gets from chemicals in food, drinks, pesticides and air pollutants. It helps improve your energy level, mental capacity and relieve joint pain and other ailments. Its other uses include water filtration, hair and skin product ingredients and even as a teeth whitener.
Activated charcoal is a great way to improve your digestive tract as it removes toxins that cause allergic reactions, oxidative damage and a weakened immune system. It’s an important tool in a detox protocol that cleans out the digestive tract to support overall health and wellness.
Built up toxins in the body, including mold, can lead to brain fog, frequent headaches, depression, digestive issues, kidney and liver failure, heart disease, headaches, vision problems and much more. Using activated charcoal helps prevent cellular damage and supports adrenal glands. It also reduces bad cholesterol and increases good cholesterol as much as some prescription medications.
Activated charcoal is generally deemed safe for most individuals, but it’s necessary to be careful when you are dealing with certain medical conditions like intestinal bleeding or blockages and other digestion problems. Activated charcoal can interfere with the absorption of nutrients, supplements and interfere with prescription medications. It should not be used on a regular basis.
With an activated charcoal cleanse, take 10 grams 90 minutes prior to each meal, for two days and follow a strict diet of only organic fruits and vegetables, grass-fed meat, wild fish and lots of water. The water is essential to flushing out the toxins and preventing dehydration. The powders and capsules are taken orally and are available in most health food stores. As always, check with a doctor or medical professional before using, especially if there is any other underlying health problem.
