Charcoal Relieves Shoulder Pain after Hysterectomy

Using Charcoal Poultices After Surgery Chris, a previous employee and friend of Charcoal House emails us one day, with a testimony to share on our blog: So… My Mom just had a major operation (hysterectomy). It was her first operation ever. We were all pretty nervous as she’s getting up there in age (70). Anyway, long story short, everything went well, but her only complaint on the way home was that her shoulders hurt more than anything else. I thought to myself, ‘What kind of operation was this? Did they just leave her in an uncomfortable position which led to this shoulder pain?’ Eight hours later, it is almost midnight […]

Hannah asks: For an infection on the face, that stems from an extracted tooth tearing a sinus tube, would you use the Topical First Aid Hardwood charcoal or the Beauty Bamboo charcoal powder?

Both of us were raised on a ranch, so we have known from the get-go, that ranching isn’t for the faint of heart. Ranchers and farmers know all too well, that the hours are long and unpredictable and everything seems to break at the worst possible time. We pray time and time again for moisture and time and time again for endurance during long, cold nights of calving. We do our best to control outcomes, whether it be cattle performance or preventing a sickness, only to be reminded that really, […]

Detoxing Horses from Heavy Metals

Courtney recently wrote us the following: Hello, I recently did a hair analysis on one of our competition horses, and it came back showing that he was very high in several heavy metals, which were Iron, Chromium, Lithium, Aluminum, Arsenic, and mainly Lead. We tested other horses on the same property and on a similar diet, and they didn’t have these high levels, so we are guessing he’s been dealing with this overload since before we purchased him. We use activated charcoal for ourselves for detox and I’ve read articles on detoxing horses high in heavy metals, but I am struggling to find dosages. Can you offer any insight or […]
