Therapeutic Action: Activated Charcoal works by ADSORPTION, which is an Electrical Action, rather than Absorption, which is a Mechanical Action. Activated Charcoal ADSORBS MOST Organic and Inorganic Chemicals, that do NOT belong in the Body, but it does NOT ADSORB Nutrients!

Formula: To make an Activated Charcoal Slurry:
1. Add 1 tsp. of Activated Charcoal Powder to an 8 oz. Glass of PURE
Water and stir.

NOTE: LOWER the Dosage to 1/2 tsp. or ADD Psyllium Husks, if the Person, who NEEDS help, has a tendency to become Constipated. And drink through a Straw, if the grittiness is a PROBLEM.

Formula: To make Activated Charcoal Poultice:
1. Use EQUAL amounts of Activated Charcoal Powder with Flaxseed Meal. Blend in blender, the amount of Seed NEEDED to make the Meal.
2. Place the 2 Powders in a dry bowl and add Water SLOWLY as you stir, mixing into a Toothpaste consistency.
NOTE: 2 tablespoons of each Powder will take approximately 5 or 6 tablespoons of Water. This amount of Poultice Paste would make a Poultice approximately 6 x 6 inches.
3. Reach a DESIRED Consistency, that is NOT TOO WET to run all over, NOT TOO DRY to fall apart), and spread it EVENLY over a Macroporous Cloth, such as an UNBLEACHED (preferably) Paper Towel or a Cotton Cloth.
4. Must now place the top of your Poultice "sandwich" over the Activated Charcoal laden bottom layer.
5. Cover with a soft-type Cling Wrap (Saran Wrap).
6. Place over DESIRED Area of the Skin to be treated (Sandwich on the Skin with the Saran Wrap over the top).
7. Wrap Saran Wrap, a Towel, or a stretch-type (Ace) Bandage around to secure the Sandwich in place.
8. Leave Activated Charcoal Poultice in place overnight or at least 1-2 hours, if applied during the day.
9. Always DISCARD an Activated Charcoal Poultice after use. Do NOT REUSE it!
NOTE: The Activated Charcoal Poultice can be made SMALL by using a Bandaid or made LARGE by using a Cotton Sheet.

Therapeutic Action: Aloe Vera has Anti-Bacterial, Anti-Viral, and Anti-Fungal Properties. It is also an Analgesic, helping to relieve Pain and an Anti-Inflammatory, helping to reduce Swelling and Inflammation, thus promoting the Body's Healing Process. Aloe is also an Anti-Oxidant, helping to NEUTRALIZE Free Radicals. Aloe Vera contains Allantoin, PROMOTING the Healing Process, and REPAIRING Tissue INSIDE and OUTSIDE of the Body!

Formula: To obtain the HEALING Gel from the Aloe Leaf:
1. Pick out an Outer Aloe Vera Leaf and cut it off near the BASE of the Plant. This would be one of the OLDEST, STRONGEST, & HEALTHIEST Leaves.
2. Take the Leaf and place it on a Cutting Board.
3. Trim off the Leaf edges and then fillet off the TOP and BOTTOM Skin of the Leaf, but NOT including the Green Portion, until you are left with a SLAB of clear Gel.

Therapeutic Action: CAYENNE is a POWERFUL and PURE Stimulant, having NO Narcotic Effect, increasing the POWER of the Pulse and carrying the Blood to ALL parts of the Body, plus EQUALIZING and RESTORING the BALANCE of Circulation throughout the Body! Cayenne is a Hemostat, ARRESTING the flow of Blood from a Cut or Wound in SECONDS and a Cardiac Tonic, HELPING to REBUILD the Heart. It is an Antiseptic, KILLING Pathogens and a Counter-Irritant, helping to RELIEVE Pain. And Cayenne is a Stomachic, HELPING to DIGEST Foods and a Carminative, HELPING to EXPEL Gas.

NOTE: In the following Steps of this Section, "Drops" and "Dropperfuls" is referring to Cayenne Pepper Tincture. SUBSTITUTE Cayenne Pepper Powder (250,000 Heat Units or above - Habanero, African Bird, Serrano, Jalapeno), if Cayenne Pepper Tincture is NOT AVAILABLE. 1 HEAPING Tablespoon added to an 8 oz.

5. Continue this Treatment, until the desired RESULTS are achieved.

You can also supply ADEQUATE Pressure above the Cut/Wound on the Pulse Location to STOP the Bleeding, but this takes some Knowledge and Practice.

A VERY EFFECTIVE Method of CONTROLLING External Bleeding is to apply Pressure DIRECTLY to the Cut/Wound. When applying Pressure to the Cut/Wound, one should use a Sterile Dressing, CLEAN Handerchief or a CLEAN Cloth, if available. A MINMUM of 10-30 minutes of Pressure may be all, that is required, but if the Cut/Wound is DEEP and the Bleeding PROFUSE, do NOT WASTE time, looking for a Sterile Dressing, just place your Hand DIRECTLY on the Cut/Wound and apply ADEQUATE Pressure to STOP the Bleeding, then get a Dressing, as mentioned above, to place on the Cut/Wound.

If you CUT an Artery, the Arterial Blood is BRIGHT Red, spurting out in a PULSATING Fashion. If you CUT a Capillary, the Blood will run out SLOWER. If you CUT a Vein, the Blood will be DARK Blue and SLOWLY OOZE out. Take an average Adult of 150 lbs. and the average Blood Volume is 5 liters. As a rule, a LOSS of 15% of the Blood Volume results in a MODERATE state of SHOCK, but a LOSS of 30% or MORE of the Blood Volume results in a SEVERE state of SHOCK, that places the Body in a LIFE-THREATENING Situation! There are many Forms of SHOCK, but I will talk about the SHOCK, resulting from Blood LOSS. Once you have ADEQUATE Blood LOSS, the Body goes into SHOCK!
l. The System suffers from a LACK of Oxygen, because of the LOSS of Red Blood Cells (RBC's carry the Oxygen in the Blood).
2.; The LOSS of Blood Volume also results into a DECREASE in Blood Pressure (BP).
3. Therefore with a DECREASE in Blood Pressure, the Heart Rate INCREASES.
4. The Force with which the Heart can pump is REDUCED, because the Blood Volume is DECREASED (LESS to pump).
5. Back to Step 1, DECREASE in Blood Volume leads to LACK of Oxygen, and the Cycle is REPEATED.
