Dear John and Kimberly,
I have been using charcoal for my family for years. I have your book and refer to it often. I refer others to your website. Charcoal has been such a blessing to my family! I thought I would share a story of healing with it from this week.
I am almost 50 and have always had good dental health. But last week I had my first tooth abscess. I used a charcoal poultice overnight on the abscess and also for several hours each day. It has been one week and it looks to be completely healed! I did also take turmeric and vitamin C internally as a natural antibiotic, but forgot to do that after the first few days. I think the charcoal would have been enough. How wonderful to be spared antibiotics or a root canal. (referral links above)
I used a mix of 1/2 charcoal powder and 1/2 flax seed. I put 1/3 or so teaspoon into an empty tea bag and folded it up and laid it over the abscess. I used a new poultice for each night and for each 3 hour application during the day.
I am so grateful for your work and teaching. My family uses charcoal every week, if not every day, for something!
God bless you all!
