How Charcoal Can Help Your Gut Avoid Serious Food Poisoning Consequences

Charcoal

Food poisoning can result from bad food or drink, and often leads to nausea, vomiting and frequent diarrhea. This, in turn, results in a loss of vital fluids. While not typically deadly in modern society, in a survival situation, food poisoning could be a death sentence. Luckily, you can use simple firepit charcoal to alleviate the churning in your stomach and help pass the harmful substances.

It's important to note that you can't just use a briquette from a bag of grill charcoal, as it is often treated with lighter fluid, which will probably kill you. However, grinding up a burned chunk of wood will result in a powder of pure carbon. Consuming it with water will quickly quiet your stomach and enable you to continue on, rather than holing up and wishing you were dead (anyone who has had food poisoning will agree with this statement).

This is an awesome and seldom passed up on tip!

    I’m no doctor but I don’t think burnt wood is the same thing as activated charcoal.

    I keep activated carbon in.my bugout bag and in my kitchen cabinet. It will not only help absorb toxins from.your stomach, it is great for dogs too.
    My german shepard got parvo in.spite of having.his shots. I didnt gave $2000 to.go through the ling treatment so I ground fish filter carbon up, put it it water in a bottle and pouredit down his throat. Later that night he actually ate the pellets out if my.hand because tbey made him feel better. In a few dsys he was as good as new.
    Tbe parvo virus doesnt ki your dog. Dehydration from diarreah and vomiting does.
    After tbe carbon,he was able tohold fown water and food.
    I take good care of my.animals with their shots and checkups, but it hitme at a very bad time. He is still doing great after 8 months.

    Same thing. Activated charcoal/carbon is just made in a controlled
    Atmosphere.
