Activated Charcoal: A Strange…But Safe Way to Detox

Activated Charcoal:
A Strange …But Safe Way to Detox
By: DAVE ASPREY…September 5, 2013 (Inspired by)…

Activated charcoal has been used for more than 10,000 years from Chinese Medicine healers to Ayurvedic practitioners to Western medicine doctors. 

The Main Reason to Detox is to “rid the body of poisons …toxins..”
It is helpful to make lifestyle changes to avoid the “Stresses” that make you weak. 

AVOID…
Energy-sapping processed GMO-Foods …
The “White Menace”… Processed (all seen as sugar to the body)… 

Free Radicals (Inflammatory)…

GMO – (Magnifying the Good Gluten & Lectins …Making them Toxic…
Heat Altered …

PASTEURIZED DAIRY… with “Dead Bacteria” & fed GMO…
It is a bit like EATING PB&J SANDWICH ON “MOLDY” BREAD!

Animal Protein from animals “Trucked to market (Cortisol Factory & Fed GMO …

Heat Altering Raw nuts …

The Omega 3 …”nut oil” is changed to “motor-like” oil to Omega 6 –

Free Radical & no longer Bioavailable …. 

“Activated Charcoal” is known for its ability to BIND to certain POISONS… 
“Free Radicals” …

From both… (healthy or unhealthy) foods eaten in EXCESS…
 
As well as…heavy metals & other environmental & other toxins  
& FLUSH them from your body…

It is “this quality” that makes it a “wonder substance: for acute and general detoxification…

Milled (GMO or Ancient Grains & Seeds (GMO & Heritage) … 
But sometimes Avoiding …“Free Radical”…
(Inflammatory foods) & Environmental Toxins is very difficult…

Especially in the SAD American Diet
or “Taste only”…the Culture of Death of the Western Culture…

When it is not possible to AVOID these “Franken Fast Foods”
& it is impossible to avoid eating at a “less-than-ideal” restaurant…

ACTIVATED CHARCOAL can help remove the TOXINS 
& EXCESS: FRANKEN FOODS”…more Efficiently & Effectively…
“Activated Charcoal” is known for its ability to BIND to certain POISONS… 

“Free Radicals” …
From both (healthy or unhealthy) foods eaten in EXCESS…
 
From heavy metals & other environmental & other toxins…
& FLUSH THEM FROM THE BODY…

It is “THIS QUALITY” that makes it a “wonder substance”…

For acute and general detoxification…
What is Activated​ Charcoal?

Activated Charcoal is the byproduct of burning a “carbon source”…
like wood or (better yet) coconut shells… 

The substance is “activated” by high temperatures…
removing “all the oxygen & changing its chemical structure”

To create “much smaller particles with more surface area”.[1] 
The result is a HIGHLY ABSORBENT MATERIAL 
with “MILLIONS of tiny pores”…
That CAPTURE, BIND & REMOVE POISONS –

FREE RADICALS & NO LONGER BIOAVAILABLE SUBSTRATES
(From GMO & other SAD Industrial Farming Processing Methods
(as well as heavy metals, chemicals & intestinal gases)…

Just 2 Grams of “Activated Charcoal” powder 
(4 capsules of Upgraded Coconut Charcoal) …
Has about the “same surface area as a football field”… 

The porous surface has a “negative electric charge”…
That attracts “positively charged” …
Free Radicals & other no longer Bioavailable …Unwanted toxins and gas….
88 Why use activated charcoal?
Western medicine primarily uses Activated Charcoal to “soak up” poisons or other toxins in a hospital setting. 

It works through a process called “adsorption” which means “TO BIND TO” …
rather than “to absorb”…

But Activated Charcoal is so much more than an antidote for drugs and poisons. 

IT IS A GLOBAL REMEDY​ FOR GENERAL DETOXIFICATION…
Digestive health, Gas, Bloating, Heart health & Anti-aging. 
It is a part of “MOLD toxin detox protocols”. ..

In fact, unscrupulous industrial CATTLE MILLS
Intentionally alter “spoiled” feed with activated charcoal, 
knowing it will allow them to …
INCREASE PROFITS … without killing the animals.[2]

** How activated charcoal works…

Ancient physicians used Inactivated Charcoal for a variety of medical purposes…
Including treating epilepsy and anthrax. 

In the early 20th century, the Charcoal Activation process sparked many medical journals to publish research revealing activated charcoal as an “antidote for poisons”
& a way to improve “intestinal disorders”.

Current research not only legitimizes these earlier practices of Activated Charcoal …but also adds beneficial new ways of using it. 
Ways that Activated Charcoal works….

** General detoxification

SUBSTRATES (Toxins) from “low quality” Processed GMO &
Heat Altered (Pasteurized Dairy & Roasted Raw Nuts..
Milled Ancient & GMO grains & Milled GMO & Non-GMO food, 
& Environmental pollution 

THE MOST UNSUSPECTED “TOXINS” are the Free Radicals caused by EXCESS of any food …. (thought of as Healthy) …
GLUTTONY (EXCESS OF ANYTHING​…​. IS NOT KOSHER)…

The Body is a closed system 
& knows how to be “VERY CREATIVE IN FINDING “STORAGE PLACES”
Especially…When there is “No Room Left at the Inn”

THE BIBLE WARNED about Gluttony…
All EXCESS of both … 

NATURAL As well as…“ man-made” (GMO, ​Heated or Milled) can “sap your energy” 
& contribute to everything from brain fog to digestive issues. 

Chronic exposure to FREE RADICALS-(toxins) produces 
Cellular damage, 
Allergic reactions, 
Compromised immunity…
& Rapid Aging​. 

Regular use of Activated Charcoal can REMOVE Unwanted FREE RADICALS 
& toxins from the body…(not EXCESS)…

Leaving MORE ENERGY & a feeling of “more vibrant:… 
Often in minutes!

** Detox Methods That May Work
By: BULLETPROOF STAFF…March 29, 2016
Detox diets are so popular….
They promise to give you more energy, 

They may help in weight loss & clear up your skin, among other things. 
To Prevent … 
It is Always best to AVOID “Dead” Franken Foods 

…Fast until late morning…

The Ubiquitin System will have more time to “haul out the ​trash”…
Fluid for Trash Removal…

Begin each Day with a Master Cleanse tea… 
(Yerba Mate, Peppermint, Tulsi, Green Tea-in Combination …
with Maple syrup, Raw Sugar (Cane or Coconut), 
Lemon Zest & Lemon Juice 
& CAYENNE!!

What are toxins?

** How do we know if we are consuming these Free Radical toxins?

“Genetically Modified Franken Foods?
Free Radical Producer…“Genetic Modification” …

MAGNIFIES the GOODNESS…

But ALSO… 

MAGNIFIES the “Natural Toxins” in Fresh Fruit and Vegetables & GMO grains..

** Examples: 
** Vital Gluten becomes… Excess Franken-Gluten causing “Celiac Disease,” IBS, Leaky Gut…
** Naturally occurring Lectins…Defined as…any of a class of proteins, chiefly of plant origin, which binds​ specifically to certain sugars and so cause agglutination of particular cell types…. 

LECTINS perform recognition on the cellular and molecular level & “play numerous roles” in biological recognition phenomena involving cells, carbohydrates, and proteins.[1][2] 

Lectins also mediate attachment & binding of bacteria and viruses to their intended targets…

They are needed & useful in NORMAL AMOUNTS…GMO creates Franken-Lectins …

Another form of Gluttony…

“Free Radicals”…Inflammation Causing …Modified by GMO … 
Creating Franken-Grains…

The “Franken Scientists” say…
They will “Feed the World” with food…

To DATE….
Genetic Modification (GMO) has not been  “PROVEN SAFE”… Because of​ Magnifies Lectins & Glutens to a level that Overwhelms​s the body …
Allergies…etc.

** Internally … Substrates from Franken Foods ….
More  Inflammatory Sources from “Altered” Natural Foods…
Milling of Whole Ancient Grains & Seeds (exposing to rapid Oxidation)
& Heat-Altered (Pasteurized) (Loaded with DEAD BACTERIA) 
& Now Animals are Fed GMO…
& Roasted Natural Raw Nuts 
& Milling of Ancient Grains & Seeds …
& Gluttony – Excess of them All!

The “Created Body” is wise 
& was createD to do the “Heavy Lifting” of detoxification on its own”….

A Properly armed Immune System should be equipped​ with anti-oxidants from Not GMO or otherwise Man-Altered Foods…

Added to what is produced INTERNALLY…
Car exhaust, secondhand smoke, flame retardants, plastic packaging, heavy metals, pesticides, exogenous hormones in conventional meat and dairy, BPA-coated receipts… 

** Benefits of DETOX…

No one is immune from the toxic load of modern life. From the air you breathe to the food you eat (yes, even when you’re Bulletproof!), supporting your natural detox pathways can lead to some major benefits.[1]
More energy
Better sleep
Clear skin[2]
Fewer cravings
Reduce Inflammation[3]
Better digestion
Weight loss[4]

**  Activated Charcoal to bind toxins….
Activated charcoal is a form of carbon that has massive surface area and a strong negative charge. It’s been around for “thousands of years”
& it’s still used in emergency rooms today to treat poisoning…
Charcoal binds to chemicals whose molecules have positive charges, including aflatoxin and other polar mycotoxins,[13] BPA,[14] and common pesticides.[15] Once the chemicals attach to the charcoal you can pass them normally (i.e. poop them out).

Charcoal can bind to the good stuff, too (i.e. vitamins and essential minerals) so I don’t recommend taking it within an hour of a meal…

Try taking a couple charcoal pills along with exercise or have a sauna session. They should absorb many of the toxins you release into your gut and GI tract.

**  Aerobic Exercise to FLUSH toxins
Regular exercise is another way to flush toxins from your body, and through more than just making you sweat. Exercise increases lipolysis (the breakdown of fat tissue), releasing toxins stored in your fat tissue. Lipolysis is especially effective when you combine it with liver and kidney support or adsorbents that can suck up the released toxins. This article focuses on all of the above.
Studies show that people who exercise and lose body fat end up with higher levels of circulating hormone disruptors.[11] Increasing lipolysis through diet does the same thing.[12]

Mobilizing toxins isn’t necessarily a good thing, particularly if you’re unequipped to get rid of them. You want to be sure you’re getting rid of toxins, not just moving them to a different part of your body. Working out addresses the issue to a degree: it improves circulation, providing more oxygen to your liver and kidneys so they can better filter out toxins. You can also give your system even more support and pull out bad stuff with the next two detox tools: activated charcoal and glutathione…

** Calcium-D Glucarate for liver support
Calcium D-Glucarate converts to glucaric acid in your body, supporting a crucial detoxification pathway in your liver. Glucaric acid scavenges your body to bind and eliminate unavoidable toxins that would otherwise wreak havoc on your health and performance.

** Calcium D’Glucarate – Assists in the detoxification of excessive estrogenic activity in the body and has been considered an alternative to tamoxifen by nutritionists. 
It is found in Non-GMO – (Not Altered) Natural foods…

(Non-GMO) apples,  spinach
(these foods contain glucaric acid).Jun 4, 2005

*** Sauna for detox
Sweating does more than cool you off. It also helps you get rid of both heavy metals and xenobiotics – foreign compounds like plastics and petrochemicals – in small but significant amounts. A 2012 review of 50 studies found that sweating can remove lead, cadmium, arsenic, and mercury, especially in people with high heavy metal toxicity.[5] Another study put participants in both traditional and infrared saunas and found similar results[6]. Sweating also eliminates hormone-disrupting BPA, which accumulates in your fat cells.[7]

**  Glutathione to protect your cells…

** 10 Natural Ways to Increase “Glutathione Levels”
Consume Sulfur-Rich Foods. 
Sulfur is an important mineral that occurs naturally in some plant protein foods. …
Increase Vitamin C FOODS Intake. …Fresh Non-GMO fruits & vegetables (heirloom) 
Add Selenium-Rich Foods to Your Diet. …

** Importance of Selenium for the Body:
Listed below are the functions of selenium that makes it an important mineral.

Antioxidant: Selenium is an antioxidant.
Thus, it helps remove free radicals from our body which can cause many health issues like cancer, heart problems, premature aging​ etc.
Immune system: Selenium plays an important role in the healthy functioning of the immune system. It helps in developing T cells of WBCs. Deficiency of selenium can lead to dysfunction of the antibodies.
Thyroid gland: Selenium is essential for thyroid gland functioning after iodine. Without selenium, the thyroid hormone does not activate or work properly. If selenium is not there in the​ ​ required amount, excess iodine may damage the thyroid gland.

** Eat Foods Naturally Rich in Glutathione. …

** Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that protects both

& Externally produced toxins…such as smog, cigarette smoke & heavy metal damage, according to studies in both human and rat cells.[16][17][18][19]. 
This powerful antioxidant also supports liver enzymes ….
that “break down “MOLD” toxins …as well as heavy metals. 
Relieves digestive issues, gas, and bloating

After digesting foods like beans, the decomposition process from bacteria in your body creates byproducts like gas or diarrhea. Activated charcoal enters the digestive tract and counteracts this process by binding to byproducts and alleviating these digestive issues.[3]
Binds drugs, chemicals & poisons (natural internal & external)..

Activated charcoal adsorbs most organic chemicals, many inorganic chemicals, drugs, pesticides, mercury, and even lead before they harm your body.[4] 
If you’re poisoned, go to the emergency room! But, there’s no reason you shouldn’t start binding a poison right away.
You can use activated charcoal topically to help relieve insect stings, mushroom poisoning, poison ivy, cholera, bites, and inflammation. Body odor and bad breath are usually a result of toxins leaving the body, which is why taking activated charcoal and using it in topical products like deodorant are really helpful.

** Anti-aging

Studies show activated charcoal prevents many cellular changes associated with aging, adrenal gland, and kidney function. Famous Gerontologists discovered its powerful anti-aging properties in a study showing activated charcoal to increase the average lifespan of older test animals by approximately 34 percent.[5] Activated charcoal slows the rate at which the brain becomes increasingly sensitive to toxins as you age, which makes for better cognitive functioning. It also builds a better defense mechanism by improving the adaptive functioning of essential organs like the liver, kidneys, and adrenals.
Better heart health

In a recent study, patients with high cholesterol who took activated charcoal three times a day showed a 25% reduction in total cholesterol. They also doubled their HDL/LDL cholesterol ratio. Studies examining microscopic tissues show a daily dose of activated charcoal may prevent abnormal hardening (sclerosis) in heart and coronary blood vessels.[6]

** When to take Activated Charcoal
As a biohacker and general health nerd, I quickly realized that it doesn’t matter how clean I eat – our environment is saturated with high levels of toxicity. This is even more of a problem when you have to eat out or are traveling. One commercial flight exposes you to high levels of toxic jet fuel and other airborne contaminants.[7] And that’s not even counting the additives from the crappy airplane food!

Activated Charcoal can help clear your body of unwanted toxins & FREE RADICALS, which can make you tired, weak & trigger everything from food cravings to headaches.

Activated charcoal always brings them back to normal within about 10 minutes. It is amazing to watch.

** Take activated charcoal when:
You eat out at restaurants or eat low-quality foods like processed junk foods
You drink bad quality coffee
When you’re drinking any alcohol
When you feel moody or tired
You’re traveling, especially air travel (activated charcoal is part of my no-jetlag protocol)
Activated charcoal​ isn’t just for acute situations. Taking activated coconut charcoal on a daily basis is a great way to help you thrive in an overly toxin-filled environment. It is best to take it between meals and a few hours after using any vitamin or mineral supplements, as it may interfere with the absorption of these into your body. Be sure to take it away from prescription, which won’t enter your body when they bind to charcoal.

** How to take Activated Charcoal
Everyone responds differently to different doses, so always consult a doctor before using any supplement or binding agent like charcoal.
Dosing: Take two or more capsules when consuming food of unknown quality or alcohol.
When to avoid taking charcoal: Never take activated charcoal with prescription medications or with other supplements. Charcoal binds a lot of substances – even the good stuff like prescription medications, vitamins, and minerals. Wait 2-3 hours after taking charcoal to take other supplements or meds and talk to your doctor about the details.

** Drink plenty of water:

Excessive charcoal consumption, especially without magnesium, can result in constipation. Take 300-400 mg magnesium glycate about 3 hours after taking charcoal and drink plenty of water to avoid constipation.

Where to find activated coconut charcoal..Google!

Charcoal is effective for people with acne-prone skin as it gently exfoliates & draws out free radicals, oil & makeup that can clog pores. 
Adding tea tree oil adds natural anti-fungal and antiseptic properties.

There are a ton of varieties for bases 
(plain glycerin, olive oil, goats milk, honey, oatmeal, etc.) that may be used to make herbal/citrus soap and even chocolate soap.
