Q and A: Using Charcoal Poultice for Lymphoma swelling?


My father had surgery related to cancer and had to have lymph nodes removed under his arm. After it has caused a lot of swelling of his entire arm. After reading your book I began to wonder if a charcoal poultice might be helpful in relieving the swelling. But I was concerned that there could be a concern because he is diabetic. What do you think?
Thanks Amy


Hi Amy.
Applying a charcoal poultice to the affected swelling area sounds like it would be very beneficial and as long as he is not taking the charcoal internally, it will not mess with his meds, if that was your concern.
There are two kinds of charcoal poultices that you can make, a poultice and a patch.  I would check both of them out and see which is more suitable for your father. Videos here:  Poultice and Patch
We always appreciate before, during and after pictures when applying the charcoal topically if you are willing to share!
