Have you ever heard about using Activated Charcoal while getting tattoos?
It can reduce toxins in the body from the ink.
My son got his first tattoo back in 2016, in honor of one of his friends who died in a tragic accident. This was the first time we heard about using activated charcoal for pulling toxins from the body. You can use activated charcoal before and after getting a tattoo. The activated charcoal pulls ink toxins from the body and so if you plan on getting a tattoo – get some charcoal too.
Dave Asprey (here) mentions the benefits of activated a lot. In this post here, Dave notes that people can give the system support and “pull out bad stuff with activated charcoal and glutathione.”
My experience with using activated charcoal is that it MUST be used with psyllium husk powder to help the charcoal exit the body quickly. If you use charcoal alone, you might feel terrible until it finally exits the body. And that is miserable waiting. It is the same thing that happens if we use bentonite clay to pull pathogens from the intestines -so it HAS to be mixed with fiber (psyllium powder or apple pectin) to help things move out quickly. Crucial. I have also learned that more is not better – one or two capsules, three times day (for four days) can be a powerful. It can also pull minerals and vitamins so be sure to supplement. This is not meant to be a post on cleansing – but wanted to mention it here because with the new year starting – many folks are thinking about stuff like this. If you do want to cleanse – activated charcoal is one small thing you can use to help clean the gut – but it will not be enough by itself. It takes a combination of many things over many months to really restore and clean the gut. I hope to write more about it in the upcoming decade. 🙂
Some people use activated charcoal while drinking alcohol. It reduces the absorption and minimizes hangovers. Charcoal is what Veterinarians and ER doctors use as well – to pull out alcohol or medications.
Consider traveling with capsules of activated charcoal because it can help you recover if your stomach is upset from foreign food or from unclean water. I keep two capsules in my wallet at all times. Recently, had a friend with an upset stomach and offered her one of the capsules and she felt well soon after taking it. This potent stuff is a must have for everyone.

Any thoughts on tattoos? I still do not have a tattoo – but this coming decade MIGHT be the time I get some – or not… hmmmm
