Many people dread the thought of "Die-Off" but it is something we all have to get through. Using a sensible approach enables it to be more manageable.

Many people ask me about charcoal and seem to be almost afraid of using it. There is no need. Charcoal is harmless and safe to use. Okay, its not as tasty as a big chunk of wholegrain bread, lots of English butter and a thick slab of Irish cheese, (sorry to tease the yeast sufferers) but its aim is to help you not provide culinary delights.

Put a heaped teaspoon of charcoal powder in a glass of water and stir well. Drink through a straw of down the hatch. Brush teeth as charcoal is black and gritty.

Charcoal is wonderful for gas and bloating as it binds the fermentation and toxins.

Charcoal can constipate some people. If this happens take an herbal laxative or the OxyFlush.

Now for some technical stuff. (No, it's not time to leave). 

What is activated charcoal powder?

Charcoal is a fine, soft, black; dust like powder with no odor or smell. It’s bland tasting and it is insoluble in water or alcohol. It’s that simple.
It is a non-toxic product that can be taken internally or applied topically. The beauty of charcoal is – it’s a harmless substance when ingested, inhaled or applied to the skin. It can be adapted for personal, health and household use. It helps to eliminate toxins and many poisons from the body.

How does activated charcoal work?

Charcoal influences the body by using the process of adsorption. ADSORB is an important word here. Adsorption is a process in which atoms and molecules move from a bulk phase (such as a solid, liquid, or gas) onto a solid or liquid surface. Too technical for you?

A simple way to describe the process of adsorption is the way water passes into a sponge. It pulls the water to it and retains it until squeezed out. In the case of charcoal we have a sort of ‘live electrical sponge,’ where it adsorbs living and nonliving substances which has the opposite electrical charge. So, when a material adsorbs something - it attaches to itself - by chemical attraction.

The beauty of charcoal is, it can be used for many different things and is widely used in industry.

More Tips for using charcoal

▪ Vaginal yeast
▪ Bad breath
▪ Tooth whitener
▪ Beauty mask
▪ Musty smells and mildew
▪ Deodorizer for refrigerator
▪ Deodorizer for air
▪ Deodorizer for pets
▪ Deodorizer for indoor plants
▪ Deodorizer for compost
▪ Flatulence in pets
▪ Cat litter
▪ Pet smells
▪ Fish tanks
▪ Pet beds
▪ Cooking
 
Charcoal has universal use. No household should be without it in my opinion. 

How often should a yeast  sufferer use the charcoal for die off?  There are no hard and fast  rules here. You can use 3 times a day. I have known some to use it 7 times a day, but have the  enema  at the ready if you must.  :D   And a friend of mine who's been using charcoals for years swears by it and says it knocks out his colds dead in it's tracks.

Hi thanks for all the info on charcoal.  I have used it for the candida and with good results.

 I did not know about the other uses, except when watching animal planet that they always use charcoal when a dog or cat has ingested poisons, this all makes sense....

 I found it very usefull one time when I thought that I got food poison and I took the charcoal and in a very short time felt much better....

                                    thanks again for the information....Lindy

May I ask you how you are taking it?  I mean the instructions say two hours after food, and I seldom have two hours pass without food.  You said taking it three times a day was ok, but how do you do it with that restriction?

Thank you Bobbie

I take herbs and supplements throughout the day.  Won't the charcoal absorb them?  Right now the only time I take the charcoal is at bedtime.  What if I need to take it during the day?

You should take the charcoal at least 1/12 hours to 2 hours away from meds and herbs. I like taking mine last thing at night too.

Leeda, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You :), I was sooo afraid to use this charcoal almost even returned it.  I bought it but when I opened it and saw that it was dark grey and sandy it actually scarred me.  The way you have explained the purposes of it  sure has put me at ease and now I am convinced that it is actually good for you.  Never thought it had so many uses.  I will start using it, thanks again.

Hello Leeda :), do you  know if it's o.k. for a 5 year old to take charcoal? I started giving my daughter Threelac and I'm aftaid she too will have the Die-Off effect.  If it's o.k. for her to have it how can I get her to take it? I doubt she'll have it with just water.  Thank you.

Yes, children can take charcoal. The best way to get them to take it is to put it in one of those drinks containers with a straw in it. So she sips it and does not see the dark color.

I would suggest that you use a small amount in a glass of water first time. 1/2-1 teaspoon and stir well.

I understand charcoal will suck up the toxins from yeast die-off.  Does it also absorb the healthy gut flora at the same time?
Thanks, Nicole

The simple answer is "no".

Even colon cleanses do not seem to affect the good flora much.

Many health food stores offer it in cap form... However it seems that it's a little more effective in powder form... http://www.threemax.biz/#charcoal

Just started using activated charcoal to prevent the stomach bug and was searching to see how it would help get rid of candida, etc. Is probiotic a good follow-up for charcoal? If so, how much? I am just starting my journey of fighting the candida.

The Activated Charcoal is to help with "die-off" or the body detox phase after you start an anti-candida program.
