Charcoal Therapy in the 19th Century

           The use of charcoal as a simple remedy for different health problems is an ancient way of treating many common diseases that afflict humankind dates back to the time of Hippocrates who lived from 460 to 360 BC.

            “HIPPOCRATES, as well as ancient Egyptian doctors, suggested the use of charcoal for medicinal purposes.”

            In the late 1800, Ellen G. White spearheaded the use of charcoal in the treatment of different diseases. A sincere and prayerful Christian, she wrote many books including health books such as: Ministry of Healing, Medical Ministry, Counsels on Diet and Foods, Happiness Homemade, Healthful Living, Temperance, Counsels on Health, and Selected Messages in three volumes.
