Activated charcoal. That’s right. At your local drug store, Walgreens, CVS, RiteAid, etc., there will be in the “digestion” aisle something called activated charcoal. Near the beano and digestive enzymes and such. And that something may be one of the best kept holiday secrets. Just check the wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Activated_carbon
I have been working with people who have extremely impaired gut health since I started professionally training and coaching clients in 2004. It’s part of what led me to fasting. It’s part of why I pursued weight loss coaching, nutrition science, and understanding lab testing and hormone profiles.
I know behavioral change. I know training. I know biology. I know nutrition. As such, I also know that people have a propensity to mismanage themselves and outright shoot themselves in the foot. But charcoal can help change all that.
It’s a good enough binder to be preferred for drug overdose victims in the ER. Imagine what it can do for food poisoning; and I don’t just mean food that’s left out too long. I mean you ate processed, refined garbage that someone is passing off as food or drink. You accidentally had cross contamination with something that triggers migraine, gastric distress, brain fog or anaphylaxis.
It’s cheap. It’s easy. No. It’s not a substitute for good nutritional programming. But especially for people with compromised health, compromised gut health, growing sensitivities, or willpower issues around weight loss, HAVE THIS ON HAND.
