About Charcoal Times

While John and I lived in Nova Scotia, Canada, he wrote the book Charcoal Remedies.com The Complete Handbook Of Medicinal Charcoal. We had no idea how the book would change our lives.

We dedicate this blog to all our wonderful and courageous customers, that were willing to try the 'black sheep' of natural remedies, and share their amazing charcoal testimonies and stories with us, that soon you will be able to enjoy and be encourage.
