We have had to use A.Charcoal in rare instances but definitely for crisis intervention during extreme herx situations for Heth. And it was effective.
It helped pull her through. I agree that when we chose to use it, we knew it was impacting absorption; but the good far outweighed the bad. No contraindications. Some of our ILAD docs will defer to it in crisis times when the body is toxic and elmination channels are blocked and not releasing toxins. This helps move it through quickly and reduce the severity of trauma.
Detox methods are the preferred for maintenance on a routine basis. This would be perhaps a consideration for those last ditch crisis. Ask you LLMD what he thinks.
Activated C. moves through the system quickly. It is a temporary intervention and not to be a supplement.
