Activated Charcoal Poultice for Severe Diarrhea

Georgia, only 59 years old, is disabled from a number of health problems, one being that she has pain in her feet and cannot stand for even short periods of time nor can she sit for long periods of time either, therefore she can no longer work outside the home. She is determined however, to take good care of what health remains by eating organically, taking supplements and treating herself with natural remedies.

Late August, she believes that she was done in by some fresh greens that she ate.  She came down with a violent case of Diarrhea. During her research, she found our web site and called us and ordered 28 oz. of charcoal powder. The powder helped, but she had to take so much each day before the diarrhea would stop. This went on for almost three months!

The first time that Georgia called Kimberly talked to her at length and suggested that she make a charcoal poultice. She said that she could not be on her feet that long, that it just wasn’t possible for her to do it. Kimberly told her that often times that, for some people with severe diarrhea, taking charcoal internally does not work nearly as well as a poultice. Yet she said she had no one to help her. How we wished we lived near her, yet she was more than a 1,000 miles away.

She of course had to order more charcoal powder as she was up to 20 tablespoons and more each day just to keep the runs away!  Each time we talked we told her about the poultices.  Anyway, one day she called and talked to John.  He too told her about the poultices.  She said that she had given up on the charcoal, tried an over the counter drug, but that didn’t do the trick and she knew that it was harmful to her so she was back to taking the charcoal powder. Finally, after talking with John, she decided that she was just going to make herself stand long enough to make a poultice and see if that would help. She really didn’t realize how quickly a poultice can be made.  Hearing or reading how to make a charcoal poultice can sound a bit strange or overwhelming, but it is really very easy, simple and quick to make and this Georgia found out.

That very evening, she made a poultice and placed it over her abdomen. The very next morning, her diarrhea was gone!  WOW!! She made another *poultice for the next evening and you guessed it, Georgia’s diarrhea was history. She just had to call us and tell us the good news, she was so happy!!  It seems she said that she was going to do this for at least a week to make sure it didn’t come back!  ☺

We have found this true for ourselves as well. Not too long ago, Kimberly too had a bout of severe diarrhea and her stomach was just gurgling. "I took some charcoal powder, but it wasn’t really doing it for me. So that evening I made a big, sloppy warm charcoal poultice, placed it on my abdomen and went to bed. By morning my stomach was calm and quiet.  Amazing, charcoal did it again!"

*Georgia used psyllium seed husk powder as a jelling agent to make her charcoal poultice then applied the poultice directly onto her skin, covered it with plastic to keep it moist, and then covered that with a dry towel.
