>>>a poltice on the skin over liver or effected organs?..it seems like it would only pull from capilarys in the skin and it couldnt get straight cleansing of the liver because it would have to pass through interior cavity, fat, muscle..seems indirect..but maybe cleansing the blood is enough..
does anyone have knowledge about this or have done it with success, symptoms before and after? <<<
Poultices of activated charcoal (and bentonite clay) are different than a "typcial poultice"...because of the power & properties of ADSORBTION (not absorbtion). To absorb, the substance doing the absorbing must actually touch the substance one is wanting to absorb (as in, a sponge absorbing water)...but adsorbing is different. The process of adsorbtion is one substance actually pulling a substance/s to itself (in a sort of electro/magnetic type process)...hence (since activated charcoal aDsorbs a myriad of toxins/poisons), in close enough proximity to the toxins, an activated charcoal poultice will pull toxins/chemicals/poisons to itself. And yes, if enough is used or ingested, activated charcoal will pull toxins through the skin and through the digestive tract.

I was assisting a woman via phone (very complex/long story), but she'd experienced a light jaundice & liver compromise/congestion for over a year (and severe liver compromise & cancer for many years). After she withdrew from an opiate (which slows down all systems of the body), her body 'sped back up' and she developed deep orange jaundice and was in a life-threatening condition (her body was starting to shut down completely). She applied an activated charcoal poultice over her liver, and within minutes felt it starting to get warmer than when she'd applied it...and within 10-20 minutes it became unbearably hot (both on the skin where it was applied, and 'to the touch'). This heat was generated by the molecular friction of the toxins being pulled through the skin and into the activated charcoal of the poultice. She left the poultice on as long as she could tolerate it, and reapplied it over the next 48 hours (making a fresh poultice as the older poultice adsorbed smells & became odorific). At the end of 48 hours, the jaundice was almost completely gone.
It would seem (as reported by others/studies) that the activated charcoal poultice had TWO actions...one, it acted as a 'second liver' (and help to the kidneys) by adsorbing poisons from her bloodstream as the blood passed through her liver; and 2), the poultice drew enough toxins/poisons directly from the liver itself, that it was able to function more effectively.
This extreme "heating up" of the poultice is not typical. The very first time I did one, I think-maybe I sensed a VERY slight warming...but never again (I could have been imagining it). In my experience, most people don't report this happening.
On this forum (Natural Healing) we utilize Dr. Schulzes Intestinal Formula #2 (abbreviated IF#2) for cleansing the colon and as an aid when healing & detoxifying the body. Amongst other herbs/fibers, it contains small amounts of both bentonite clay and activated charcoal. When taken internally, these two substances will pull chemicals, poisons, some forms of radiation AND heavy metals from the tissues & bloodstream to themselves in the digestive tract...to be safely flushed away. This is MUCH safer than other methods of detoxification that simply loosen or chelate poisons/metals into the bloodstream (in amounts FAR too vast for the liver/kidneys to neutralize & eliminate, which can quickly overburden and harm the liver/kidneys further).
In the link above, you will find TONS of compelling information regarding the benefits & safely of activated charcoal (both internally & externally). I never suggest fasting or any type of detoxification without at least the amount of charcoal/bentonite in the daily doses of IF#2 (and I highly suggest having an extra teaspoon of charcoal mixed with each of the 5 daily doses of the IF#2...or taken separately as a charcoal slurry when not taking the IF#2).
