We all know the feeling. You wake up at 2:30 in the morning with a pain in your stomach. You think to yourself, “If I can just go back to sleep it will go away.” But you can’t, and it doesn’t. You finally drag yourself to the bathroom (hopefully) where you successfully empty the previous night’s dinner.
Ahh… now you feel better. You crawl back into bed and drift back to sleep, only to awaken 30 minutes later with that same pain in your stomach. And you go through the cycle again.
Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to avoid this cycle?
THERE IS!! (Do I sound like an infomercial?)
We always keep a few bottles of Activated Charcoal on hand for whenever one of us starts to get that “uh oh” feeling in our stomach. If we catch it soon enough, we can take 6-7 Activated Charcoal capsules and it almost always goes away. If we don’t catch it soon enough then we still take the charcoal, but we might still have to head to the bathroom (only once or twice though, instead of 4-8 times).
Activated Charcoal can also be taken internally for food poisoning, and applied externally (make sure it is wet when applied to the skin) for spider bites and snake bites.
Activated Charcoal has saved us MANY trips to the doctor, and who knows how much money in prescriptions.
You can get Activated Charcoal at your local health food store, or do a search online for “Activated Charcoal” and lots of information will come up.
For more information, I recommend reading this helpful article that explains exactly what Activated Charcoal is and how it helps.

Hmmm, that’s a new one to me – thanks!! (I hope it’s info that I don’t need anytime soon!)
