Detoxing With Activated Charcoal

Activated Charcoal  is a very effective remedy that does not get enough attention.  Charcoal has been used since the 1500's BC for treating medical conditions.  The uses for charcoal are practically endless and works by attracting, binding and escorting toxins out of the body quickly through bowel movements.   Hippocrates, the Greek physician considered the father of natural medicine, used activated charcoal to cure many patients.  It is often referred to as, "black magic" because of it's color and healing abilities.  Here's what Activated Charcoal does:


  • Has a negative ionic charge that attracts the positive ionic charges of toxins and poisons causing them to bind to the charcoal. They are then surreptitiously escorted out of the body via the eliminative channel of the intestines.

  • Binds and removes heavy metals, chemicals and poisons.

  • Deodorizes foul smells.

  • Removes symptoms of traveler’s diarrhea.

  • Reduces ulcers in the stomach.

  • Can be used as a toothpaste to whiten teeth and eliminate foul breath since it kills bacteria.

  • Reduces gas from eating beans and other gaseous foods.

  • Eliminate many micro-organisms and chlorine from drinking or bath water.

  • Removes pharmaceutical toxins from the body. This includes aspirin overdose, accidental household toxin ingestion, and heavy metals. It has been used for hundreds of years in cases of food poisoning. Ancient Egyptians used activated carbon as did the Native Americans.

  • Removes parasites and bacteria from the body. This includes bugs that cause everything from a stuffy nose to more invasive parasites.

  • Removes fungal toxins.

  • Improves constipation and diarrhea.

  • Eliminates body Odor.

  • Eliminates halitosis.

  • Improves skin Conditions.

  • Lowers cholesterol, triglycerides and lipids found in blood.

  • Digestion, adrenal gland, liver and kidney function, heart and brain health are also improved.

  • When used during a flu or virus, Activated Charcoal helps you recover quickly.

  • Charcoal has the ability to prevent bacteria and viruses from lingering in the body and when taken at the onset of illnesses like these, it absorbs most, if not all of the viral and bacterial toxins before they have a chance to multiply and spread.


Individuals with Crohn's disease or IBS need to prepare their activated charcoal slightly different, or use it externally, as a poultice, instead of mixing it with water and drinking it or taking it in a pill form.  If you suffer from bowel obstruction, it is not a product you should be using.  Takesumi should be taken with water only and in between meals, separate from your vitamin and minerals. It may cause blackened stools, which is normal and too much may lead to diarrhea, nausea or vomiting.
