Recognized by both Naturopathic and Western medicine as life-saving, Activated Charcoal is a core product that Dr. Mait believes should be in every single medicine cabinet. Side-effect free and completely natural, this cure-all has been used for thousands of years as a remedy to combat various forms of illnesses, ranging from stomach aches to food poisoning and skin infections. This time-honored medicine also doubles as a beauty essential—perfect for teeth whitening and skin detoxing.
Skin: Activated Charcoal can be applied safely directly to the skin. Through the process of pulling out toxins, it can cleanse the skin and leave it looking more radiant. It has applications in skin infections, spider bites, snake bites, infected insect bites, abscesses, acne and much more. Activated charcoal is generally added to a small amount of water and applied as a paste to the skin. In order to allow the pulling of toxins through the skin, the area is kept moist. Additionally, activated charcoal can be mixed with aloe vera, flaxseed oil or coconut oil to be applied directly to the skin for acne, blemishes, or general skin detoxification.
Teeth: Whitens. Many commercially available products now incorporate activated charcoal into their ingredients. Add a small amount of charcoal to a wet toothbrush and brush teeth for 1 minute. Results are seen instantly, after rinsing. This can be done up to twice per week.
Stomach: Activated charcoal has been used for nearly a century in most hospitals throughout the world for medication overdose and accidental ingestion. Through the process of attaching to medications (adsorption), the charcoal binds to medications and renders them inactive as they are eliminated through the colon. Activated Charcoal has been used for thousands of years as a natural remedy for indigestion, gas, bloating, and food poisoning. This incredible natural medicine is also incredibly useful in intestinal detoxification and cleansing strategies.
