Detoxification by activated charcoal…
Pharmacist P.F. Touery shocked colleagues at The French Academy of Medicine in 1831 by drinking a massive dose of lethal strychnine in front of them. Amazingly, he suffered no toxic effects. He had combined the deadly poison with activated charcoal, an antidote and detoxifying agent that goes back centuries.
Today, activated charcoal is in all hospital ERs and many emergency vehicles as a fast, effective antidote for poisons, including pharmaceutical toxins, of all types. It is considered safe and effective by the FDA, and it is relatively inexpensive. Very few know of this amazing natural antidote, and even less know of its general detoxifying capacity.
Therapeutic Action of Activated Charcoal
Activated charcoal works by ADSORPTION, which is an electrical action, rather than Absorption, which is a mechanical action. Activated Charcoal Powder ADSORBS most organic and inorganic chemicals, that do NOT belong in the body, but it does NOT ADSORB nutrients!
The benefits of activated charcoal, as you can see, seem nearly limitless! Below is a quick healthy detox drink that can be made at home.
