ABC: Activated Bamboo Charcoal

"ABC" stands for Activated Bamboo Charcoal—the charcoal that has tested most optimally for me for years through clinical testing on patients as well as energetic testing (MRT method) in my practice. Activated charcoal taken orally can neutralize many of the inflammatory by-products and chemicals that are released through detoxification, and reduce the various accompanying symptoms including fatigue, “brain fog,” joint and muscle achiness, as well as general malaise (“flu-ish” or just don’t feel well). ABC traps toxic chemicals, heavy metals, drugs, and pathogenic microbes in its millions of tiny pores where they can then be absorbed and assimilated in the blood stream and effectively excreted from the body. When this traditional method of natural detoxification was studied in the 1980s researchers discovered that the use of oral charcoal also helped prolong life spans and reduce the rate of age-related diseases. (Frolkis, V., Exp. Gerontol.)

For chronic detoxification purposes, the suggested dose is ¼ teaspoon in a little water taken just before bed (so it doesn’t bind food nutrients and other needed supplements you ingest during the day), from 1 to 3 nights a week. (You can drink extra water to rinse the black charcoal off your teeth. However, since charcoal is good for teeth whitening, you can always brush it over your teeth even more and leave it there for 1 to 2 minutes, and then brush and rinse. The next day you might notice whiter teeth!) Note that the more charcoal you take the stronger the detox, so I am recommending a conservative ¼ to ½ teaspoon dose intermittently for more gentle detoxification in the body, rather than a full teaspoon (although dosage amounts and times can vary based on an individual’s size and sensitivity).

For acute poisoning from food or drugs, dosage can be ½ to 1 teaspoon in a little water, taken from 1 to 3 times a day, or as needed to reduce symptoms. And of course call 911 and go to the nearest emergency room as soon as possible.
