Any respectable housewife regularly takes care of the cleanliness of the dwelling: wipes dust, does wet cleaning, vacuums, airs. In general, it takes maximum measures to make the apartment shine clean and fresh. And now imagine our body as an apartment: with a lot of rooms, shelves and different storage rooms. And here we are, over the course of our lives, slaughtering these shelves and storerooms with all kinds of belongings - not very useful. And how often do we clean this dwelling? Of course, the body, unlike an apartment, takes measures to clean itself, but believe me, this is not enough.
Already by the age of 30 it accumulates a lot of harmful and toxic substances, and if you don’t leave them in time, you may have health problems. Today we will discuss how to take activated charcoal to cleanse the body.
How does activated carbon affect the body?
Activated carbon (sorbex) is a reactive substance with high porosity, which, in turn, determines the sorption properties.
The properties of activated carbon were known in ancient Egypt. Even then, the Egyptian pharaohs cleansed the body with the help of this adsorbent, thanks to which, probably, they were so well preserved in their sarcophagi. Sorbex and is currently being actively used.
How does it work? You take a tablet of activated carbon, which, passing through the digestive tract, binds and takes all the harmful substances that have accumulated in the body, and brings them out. In this case, the mucosa is not irritated, the coal in the stomach is not digested. But the liquid part of the purified gastric juice, getting into the blood, helps to update its composition and reduce the content of harmful lipid elements.
Colon cleansing with activated carbon: how to take the drug?
The process of enterosorption is quite simple, and it is easy to carry out at home. At the same time you need to eat less fatty foods and drink more: from two liters of fluid a day.
In order to prepare the cleansing solution, take 10 g of sorbex and dissolve in 50 ml of water, stirring with a wooden spoon. Paraffin oil is also added to the mixture, but not more than 1 g. Having stirred well, the solution is taken internally with two glasses of water. Laxative effect and bowel cleansing is guaranteed.
This magic elixir must be taken for 7-8 days, once a day. After a cleaning course to maintain intestinal microflora, take drugs that contain live bacteria, for example, Linex or Bifiform.
In case of poisoning
If the poisoning occurred with an acid, such as acetic acid, or a caustic substance, such as a concentrated ammonia solution, or pesticides, then activated charcoal will not help. In all other cases, it is the most effective means.
Take 5-10 g of the drug, washed down with two glasses of water. After eight hours, another 5 grams of coal can be taken in again, washed down with water.
This drug absorbs gases very well, we can say that it is the best of all available types of treatment for excessive gas formation. If you feel bloated, take activated charcoal at the rate of one tablet per 10 kg of your weight, drinking plenty of water.
Front abdominal ultrasound
Sometimes in order to prepare for the ultrasound prescribed medications. One of them is activated carbon. As we already found out, it cleans the intestines very well and stops gas formation. Before the test, up to 5 tablets of activated carbon are taken in the morning and evening for two to three days.
If the ultrasound is scheduled for the morning, then the last reception of coal should be the night before. And if scheduled for daytime, then take a pill in the morning of the same day.
Motivation for losing weight can be different. In some, this desire to lose a couple of extra pounds and look younger and slimmer, in others such measures are associated with deterioration of health due to obesity. From the foregoing, we have already realized that the use of activated carbon is not in itself a diet. This method of losing weight is not recommended by doctors and is not suitable for everyone.
If you still insist on the use of sorbeks for weight loss, then its use will be appropriate in reasonable quantities and only in parallel with the main diet. There are several ways that will be safe for your health:
- The duration of the diet is from two weeks to one month. Three times a day before meals, take one tablet of activated carbon per 10 kg of weight, that is, if your weight is 90 kg, then at one time you need to drink 9 tablets.
- Daily intake - 10 tablets. Regimen: 3 tablets before breakfast, 3 - before lunch, 4 - before dinner. Every time we wash down with two glasses of water.
- Diet for a month. Scheme: we start with one sorbex tablet before eating, add every day one more to the maximum level - 1 tablet per 10 kg of weight.
Contraindications and side effects
No matter how harmless the use of activated carbon may seem, there are also limitations and contraindications for it:
- inadequate intake of sorbex leads to hypovitaminosis and depletion of the body with nutrients;
- prolonged and excessive application of the drug may cause constipation or diarrhea, as well as lead to erosive changes in the intestinal mucosa;
- Coal is contraindicated in the presence of peptic ulcer, gastritis or gastric bleeding;
- activated carbon can significantly reduce the effects of other medications, including oral contraceptives.
To carry out periodic cleaning of the body can and should be. Activated carbon will be an indispensable tool in this matter. It is only important to remember that everything is good in moderation. You, for example, in an effort to maintain cleanliness in the house, do not polish the bath or carpet to the holes? So with the body, the main thing - do no harm. Take care of yourself!
