AYURVEDA AND ACTIVATED COCONUT SHELL CARBON -- CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL
About 12 years ago, while my ship was discharging chemicals at Amsterdam, I was called urgently down to the CCR.
There I saw my Chief Engineer and 3rd Engineer in absolute distress-- with my Chief Engineer shouting at the top of his voice that he is gonna die.
I gleaned that both of them had just landed back on ship's gangway from a jaunt ashore, by taxi. The 2nd officer told me that they had eaten some cakes in a coffee shop, with Hindu gods pictures all over the place.
I asked the 2nd mate to get some activated charcoal from the hospital , dissolved it in water and made both the "about to die" guys swallow it.
Then I made 2nd mate take them by taxi to the nearest hospital- suggested by the agent.
When they got back after two hours, I got to know that by the time they reached the doctors room both had stabilised .
The Chief Engineer who was aggressively shouting all the way to hospital " EMERGENCY--I'm gonna die!!" had calmed down.
And the 3rd Engineer had started giggling like a school girl.
And the 3rd Engineer had started giggling like a school girl.
The doctor said both had consumed SPACE CAKES-- These were Tutti Fruity and Black Forest cakes laced with Cannabis , which is legal in Netherlands.
He was of the opinion that the activated charcoal , administered by the Captain , had done the trick and nothing needs to be done other then making sure that both these officers do NOT go for duty for another 12 hours.
Later I spoke to the doctor from the ship by phone and he was keen to know, how I knew that the best thing to do was to make them swallow the activated charcoal.
I told him " Doctor, I am from the land of Ayurveda--where this science is 7000 years old . Till the age of 15, I brushed my teeth every morning with activated charcoal. And this is the universal medicine for the poor man ".
We then spoke for about 20 minutes , where I told him the various uses of activated charcoal, back home in India.
Some of which I will mention in this post.
Activated charcoal is jet black in colour-- odourless, tasteless and non-toxic.
The ancient Maharishis of Kerala had injected enough King Cobra venom to kill a huge elephant in a small dog with no harm done. Of course the venom was mixed with activated charcoal powder.
In 1813, a European chemist swallowed five grams of deadly arsenic trioxide mixed with activated coconut charcoal with no adverse effect.
Much later in 1831 , in front of his distinguished colleagues at the French Academy of Medicine, Professor Touery combined at lethal dose of strychnine with activated charcoal , such was his confidence in this porous carbon. It aDsorbs the poison , through the entire length of the stomach and small and large intestines (GI tract).
Activated charcoal keeps the poison from being aBsorbed from the stomach and intestines into the body. Because charcoal is not "digested," it stays inside the GI tract and eliminates the toxin when the person has a bowel movement.
Activated charcoal or carbon is one of the most important contributions of Ayurveda to this world.
Ayurveda which developed in Kerala, India , used coconut shell charcoal. This are more number of coconut trees here per acre of land than any where else on this planet.
The ancient Kerala Maharishis used to treat the Egyptian Pharoahs with activated coconut charcoal.
Almost all Hindu rituals involve breaking of a coconut, for the Quantum butterly effect. This is like a bloodless sacrifice as the liquid spilt is electrolytic plasma which can be transfused into the human body.
After the coconut is broken , the remains cannot be eaten . This goes a part of the havanam or the holy ritual fire, where it burns very fiercely because of the inherent oil . The fire when doused with water at the end of the homam, is activated charcoal, and that too scalar enhanced.
Now let me briefly explain what this coconut breaking is all about.
While breaking the coconut the devotee must INTEND as per the vedic traditions. This is to tune our self to the quantum level energy matrix, and this energy is transferred to our DNA. We resonate in Zero Point Field —human intention can influence the universe.
Nikola Tesla was introduced to this ocean of energy --Akasha ( Ether ) by The Hindu great master Swami Vivekananda. He told Tesla that the "emptiness" of empty space is in fact not empty, but a great ocean of seething energy! This included the empty space within the atom in which electrons zoomed around.
The BrahmAn of the morphogenetic consciousness, is a form of EM energy, that focused thought (with intent) can achieve extraordinary things The quantum field or pure consciousness is influenced by intention Scalar waves from your mobius supercoil.
DNA resonant couples with intention and consciousness. Intentions enhance the body’s natural flow of scalar energy produced by DNA.
Your DNA can send and receive powerful data through the universal network of ether . The soliton is the quantum chaos sine wave that can achieves anti gravity.
Now let me get back to the subject of activated charcoal.
Activated charcoal is made from coconut shells, as I told before.
The best grades come from mature coconut shell which affords high percentage of fixed carbon, low volatile matter and ash.
The shells are super heated in an inert atmosphere and then suddenly oxidized with steam. The partly burned shells are then granulated to a size that provides for optimum aDsorption. This creates an amazingly beehive type porous molecular structure with a massive surface area for aDsorption. Just one table spoon of activated charcoal will have a surface area of the size of a massive cricket field.
Under a microscope activated charcoal looks like honeycomb with millions of tiny pores. These pores act like sponges, attracting, absorbing and trapping many toxins and impurities and giving activated charcoal its unique health properties.
The word aDsorb must be noted. When a material aDsorbs something, it attaches to it by chemical attraction or Van Der Val's forces. Van der Waals forces include attractions between atoms, molecules, and surfaces, as well as other intermolecular forces.
The huge surface area of activated charcoal gives it countless bonding sites. When certain chemicals pass next to the carbon surface, they attach to the surface and are trapped. Activated charcoal is a universal detoxifier and it works in harmony with the human body. It is not absorbed, adsorbed, neutralized, nor metabolized by the human body.It has an amazing ability to attract other substances to its surface and hold them there
Activated charcoal powder can adsorb thousands of times its own weight in gases, heavy metals, poisons, and other chemicals-it renders them ineffective and harmless.The finer the particle size of an activated carbon, the better the access to the surface area and the faster the rate of adsorption kinetics
Activated carbon is used in gas purification, decaffeination, gold purification, metal extraction, water purification, medicine, sewage treatment, air filters in gas masks and respirators, filters in compressed air and many other applications.
Chinese Admiral Zheng He who had come to Kerala with 31000 soldiers in 1406 , had written about the various ways the natives of Kerala used activated charcoal.
He did NOT dare to attack Kerala because he knew of the swift snake boats ,with warriors who would blacken their bodies with activated coconut charcoal, which prevented his Chinese sniffer dogs from giving early warnings.
If the dogs cannot smell through the charcoal,then the mosquitoes cannot too.
Activated charcoal powder is used in gas masks during wars to counteract poison gas. IT IS NOT OF MUCH USE AGAINST CARBON MONOXIDE AND INORGANIC GASES OF SODIUM, FLUORINE , LEAD, ARSENIC ,LITHIUM AND NITRATES.
Activated charcoal powder must be stored in a tightly sealed container, because it readily adsorbs impurities and moisture from the atmosphere.
To a person who has attempted suicide by swallowing poison, activated charcoal is often given after the stomach is pumped (gastric lavage). Gastric lavage is only effective immediately after swallowing a toxic substance (within about one-half hour) and does not have effects that reach beyond the stomach as activated charcoal does.
Activated charcoal eliminates fungi, viruses, and bacteria from the body. Activated charcoal can also adsorb gases, especially in the lower intestine, and thus help to relieve flatulence and gas pains. It also takes the smell out!
As it travels through our gastrointestinal tract absorbing toxins and impurities in its passage. This includes trapped intestinal gas and, importantly for preventing those deadly smelly farts, as it can absorb hydrogen sulphide (also known as rotten egg gas ).
Activated charcoal aids in the relief of the burning pain, nausea, vomiting, burping or belching associated with indigestion.
Orally administered, these fine black granules have an amazing ability to extract and neutralize many more times their own weight in gases, heavy metals, toxins, poisons and other chemicals.
Activated charcoal poses no threat to nutritional uptake. It is so negligible that it cannot compromise the health. It is safe for children and for pregnant women.
If you take too much or if your body rejects it, the whole thing will be vomitted out automatically. Just make sure you drink plenty water in case you vomit.
It is of NO use for making drunkards who have consumed excess alcohol sober.
Taking activated charcoal orally will naturally turn the stool black-- so don't bitch about black crap.
ADsorbs pathogens that produce or aggravate diarrhea.
ADsorbs uric acid thereby relieving the symptoms of gout
ADsorbs excessive stomach acid that contributes to peptic ulcers.
Treatment of various insect bites including ants, spiders, scorpions, wasps, bees, and hornets with activated charcoal poultices. Poultices can be used for abscesses. The human skin has an amazing ability to allow transfer of liquids, gases, and even micro-particles through its permeable membrane and pores ( reverse osmosis ) , by the application of a moist, activated charcoal poultice which actually draw bacteria and poisons through the skin and into the poultice . Activated charcoal compresses to speed the healing of wounds and eliminate their odors. But the activated charcoal poultices must be kept moist and warm for this healing process to occur.
Used in water purification, air purification, and for removing undesirable odors and impurities in food.
To disinfect and deodorize wounds. It adsorbs all the foul odours.
Natural treatment for piles,
To alleviate allergy headaches, minor arthritic symptoms, menstrual pains, painful urination, sore throat irritation, flu-like symptoms, cold sores and tooth abscesses
To lower the concentration of total lipids, cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood serum, liver, heart and brain.
To curb the growth of intestinal-based yeast infections
Relieves unpleasant symptoms of morning sickness during pregnancy, such as bloating, gas pains, nausea, and vomiting.
Powerful antidote in the first aid treatment of poisonous snake bites. A tourniquet is applied ,the fang spots punctured and a poultice is applied.
For dental caries, spongy bleeding gum, hot and cold feeling and bad odor from the mouth.
Due to antimicrobial properties, silver loaded activated carbon is used as an adsorbent for purification of domestic water.
Activated carbon filters can be used to filter vodka and whiskey of organic impurities which can affect color, taste, and odor.
