In a day when the fourth leading cause of death in America is due to adverse effects of properly prescribed drugs (Journal of American Medical Association - July 2000), many are asking, "Are there not safer alternatives?" Yes there are!! Allow me to introduce you to one extraordinary yet simple natural remedy - Activated Medicinal Charcoal.

Charcoal - a thousand and one applications

From the dawn of civilization, man has had an intimate relationship with charcoal. As an indispensable tool of technology and as a medicinal, charcoal is used in numerous ways to make our lives more healthy. It purifies the water we drink, the air we breathe, and detoxifies the soil we grow our food in. As a medicinal, charcoal is used in virtually every hospital in the world on a daily basis, as it plays an increasingly significant role in maintaining, restoring and enhancing man's level of health. From drug and food poisoning, to kidney dialysis machines, to would dressings, to anemia of cancer, and much more, modern hospitals depend on the many uses of this most simple of remedies. These same benefits are also available to you. "In a world being poisoned by its own near-sighted wisdom, God has provided man with a microscopic black hole big enough to swallow much of what ails us."

"I heartily recommend The Complete Handbook of Medicinal Charcoal and Its Applications by author John Dinsley. As a physician, as a mother and grandmother, as a public health educator for the past 46 years, I have come to fully trust the efficacy and safety of charcoal as a simple yet powerful home remedy. This book serves not only as a reference book of medicinal charcoal facts, but also brings together a hundred and fifty different charcoal experiences of individuals from around the world. People need this book. EVERY FAMILY, every healthcare worker, every traveler abroad, every health conscious individual needs a copy in their home library."  -  Agatha M. Thrash, MD (Co-founder Uchee Pines Institute. Medical Examiner for the State of Georgia)
