After you've applied charcoal, you should also use echinacea oil, which will help neutralize the wound. You may also want to pack some echinacea supplements in your bug out bag — echinacea can be used for a variety of survival uses, from allergies to upper respiratory tract infections, urinary tract infections, and slow-healing wounds.
3) Echinacea will boost your immune system
Echinacea oil is known to help neutralize snake bites. This property of echinacea was first discovered by the American Indians. In addition, echinacea boosts the immune system, and thus helps to fight infections. In the event of a snake bite, we strongly recommend taking a large dose of echinacea supplements, and repeating every 6 hours. If swallowing is difficult, then hold it in the mouth for as long as possible for blood absorption through the cheeks and tongue, before attempting to swallow.
After 24 hours activated charcoal will not longer be effective and you will need another source of treatment to ensure you get rid of all toxins. To find out what that treatment is and how it can expedite the healing process, visit the next page.
