Activated charcoal

Use

Against gastritis, including gastroenteritis , diarrhea and food poisoning . It can also be used against bad breath and bloating (especially associated with diarrhea).

What is Activated Vegetable Charcoal?
Activated charcoal, also known as activated (vegetable) charcoal, helps absorb toxins in the body. Activated charcoal, from charred wood, usually poplar or ash, has a strong absorption power thanks to its large surface area on which it has the ability to fix toxins and gases. Some naturopaths consider activated charcoal to be a real “unwanted substance magnet”.

Ingredients

– Powdered activated charcoal (available in health food stores or pharmacies)
Note: Charcoal is also sold in the form of granules or capsules.

– Water

Preparation

– Place 1 teaspoon (or tablespoon, in case of more advanced symptoms) of activated charcoal in a large glass of water.

– Mix well and drink immediately after preparation.

Posology

– Take 2-4 glasses of this mixture every day. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for a more personalized dose.

– Drink 1 glass of activated charcoal 3 times a day in case of diarrhea or gastroenteritis. In general, it is necessary to follow the treatment until healing, in a few days. For bloating and bad breath, drink half a glass 30 minutes before a meal and half a glass 30 minutes after a meal, 3 times a day (you can also take 1/2 teaspoon of granulated charcoal instead of diluting it in water). In case of indigestion, especially from intoxication, consult a doctor or call the poison control center. While waiting for help or medical instructions, you can already dilute 4 tablespoons of activated charcoal in 50 ml of water or 100 ml of water, drink it immediately (you can drink it with a straw so as not to get a black mouth).
Ask your doctor or pharmacist about more personalized dosing.

Notes
– Charcoal (activated vegetable), especially if taken long term, can cause mild constipation and disrupt the absorption of vitamins and minerals. It is recommended to take activated charcoal at least 2 hours apart from other medications.
– Activated charcoal is an excellent remedy and counterpoison. Be careful not to take too much, start with small doses and build up gradually. Your pharmacist or doctor can help you find the best dosage.
– You will also find activated charcoal-based capsules in pharmacies (to be taken in general 3 to 4 capsules a day in case of swelling, bad breath, gastroenteritis or diarrhea). There are also activated charcoal granules.
– The famous physician Hippocrates mentioned coal in his writings.

Contraindications: 
– Children under 6 years old.
