Charcoal Remedies

Charcoal Remedies / A Little History

Charcoal was first used for medicinal purposes in the 14th century. Eclectic doctors first noticed that drinking a weak solution of charcoal eased stomach troubles and painful flatulence. Even babies were given small amounts for colic.

Charcoal Remedies

The old adage of putting a lump of coal in a sock at Christmas (if you have been naughty and not nice) originated to absorb odors in the wool socks, which were air-drying over the hearth. Charcoal is a natural freshener and absorbent.


Sometimes the amount of the crystals become so profuse that they bulge out of the joint into what is called a “gouty tophus”, which is white looking bump that can be quite painful.

Charcoal is a black porous carbon that is principally used in natural medicine for its capacity to bind and absorb. (I like Nature's Way Charcoal Capsules for purity. 

Charcoal remedies are for short-term use only because charcoal not only absorbs toxins, and gases from the digestive tract, it will also absorb beneficial nutrients. So, only a few days at a time for charcoal. And don’t forget to drink plenty of water when you take charcoal capsules.

Charcoal is useful to keep in the home for accidental poisoning of pets and people. Many chemicals specify “do not induce vomiting” and purging via of the colon may be one of the solutions.

I don’t recommend that you self-treat any poisoning with charcoal until you receive instruction from the Poison Control Center.

Sometimes to get rid of pesky blood parasites, I will suggest charcoal capsules following dosages of 12th century artemisia and black walnut tinctures. It seems that parasites don’t like carbon rings. Under the microscope, charcoal has been observed with dead parasites attached to it like a magnet. Our bodies have a naturally high carbon content anyway.

And it may sound strange, but charcoal powder was used in Cleopatra’s early Egyptian beautification rites. The powder was mixed with aromatic oils (cedar and myrrh) and used as an absorbent facial mask instead of clay to purify and refine the skin. Given that Cleopatra was worshipped as a goddess for her extraordinary beauty, she must have been doing something right.
