Medicinal charcoal has amazing therapeutic properties.
It is sold in pharmacies at very affordable prices, and can cure several disorders of the digestive system such as indigestion, gastritis, bloating and heartburn. It can also reduce cholesterol, inflammation and irritation, and act as a very efficient detoxifier.
Medicinal charcoal may be used in cases of overdosing on medicine or ingesting some toxic substance. A seven-day treatment with one pill per day lowers blood cholesterol levels and improves the activity of the heart and brain.
To treat stomach disorders, mix one or two teaspoons of charcoal powder in a small amount of water, and drink 30 minutes before the main meals.
In case of poisoning with various toxic substances, mix one teaspoon of powder in a glass of water. For a better effect, drink at least one liter of water.
It may be hard to believe, but charcoal has the ability to whiten teeth. The procedure is simple: dissolve a spoonful of carbon powder in 150 ml of warm milk and drink twice a day.
In case of respiratory problems or asthmatic attacks one should drink two tablespoons of charcoal mixed in a glass of water or take a charcoal capsule. The treatment should last for seven consecutive days, and during this time the diet should be based mostly on fruit and less on vegetables.
