After suffering for 8 months from painful abdominal inflammation, the charcoal has been the first relief I have experienced. I've been able to go off of pain medication and resume life more normally. I had been exposed to mold and chemicals during a house renovation in the fall, and had no idea it could be that destructive. The first 5 days I had "die off" symptoms, I felt horrible with headaches, fatigue and flu-like symptoms. I am so glad that I persevered and waited for the breakthrough. I am hopeful that this will be the path to full healing!
