This was happening to me before the charcoal. I had severe pain on my lower left. Sometimes the pain would come before my cycle, so I assumed it was that. However, lately, the pain would be random times during the month. This last time was so severe that I decided to use my fist to massage the area, and I could feel the knot. I was/am terrified. 20 minutes later, I was going to the bathroom. After that I began looking for causes and remedies... I am cleansing now with charcoal, and I am on a high fiber diet. I can honestly say I feel and smell much better.

Liquid Chlorophyll for Controlling Body Odor: When I overload on foods that are not good for my body, I can always tell by the smell of my underarms. No amount of washing, soap, or various deodorants would help either. Very embarrassing! A friend recommended chlorophyll because it worked for her. Initially I tried the gel caps and tablets but neither of those seemed to make a difference.

I tried the mint flavored liquid and it seemed to work within hours. So I kept using it. That was about 7 or 8 years ago. I don't take an exact dosage as it's kind of messy to pour out. I just take a swig after I brush my teeth first thing in the morning and again before I head out for the day. I don't even need deodorant any more!

I had a large container of activated charcoal sitting in my cupboard the last 2 years that I rarely touch. I decided to give it a shot for body odor after reading about it on Earth Clinic. Yes, it works! You need to give it 2 days to get into your system before you notice the difference, then you need to maintain a dosage every day.

I do have a few side effects to note: Activated charcoal is best taken on an empty stomach, but I do not suggest taking it first thing in the morning. I drank my heaping tablespoon in 8 oz of water 2 days ago, then oil pulled. I ended up gagging up acid after 2 minutes of oil pulling. Yuck. This was interesting because I read that charcoal is actually a remedy for Acid Reflux! Well, then I changed to taking my charcoal in the middle of the day, before lunch. That seems to work. However, it does give me a slight stomach ache. You might also try taking it at night, several hours after dinner.

One benefit to the charcoal besides not having to use deodorant or baking soda (that irritates my skin, I must admit) is that I seem to sweat less when I have this in my system. It may be a remedy for excessive sweaters, I don't know... worth a shot. And it is a general detoxer, so that's a good thing in this hot and humid weather. Question for regular users of charcoal. Do you take it every day or is it something you need to stop every so often? Thanks!

Liquid Chlorophyll and activated charcoal will go a long way to getting rid of body odor when used internally. Unfortunately, both of them can cause stains. So be sure to use them in an empty sink to avoid staining your counter or clothing.

Although you have to be careful with it to avoid making a mess, activated charcoal is best used in bulk. Add 1 or 2 tablespoons to a pint of water, and sip through a straw. Be sure to rinse out your mouth with peroxide afterward and rinse your teeth to get the charcoal off.

Activated charcoal in bulk is made from coal or coconut shells. Obviously, you want the coconut shell-made activated charcoal. You can buy it in bulk online in 40-50 pound lots, and split the cost with your friends.

Activated charcoal is a universal detoxifier and is used in emergency rooms for that purpose. Given that there are thousands and thousands of chemicals in our food, water, and air, and we have no idea how they interact with each other, it behooves all of us to take universal detoxifiers like large doses of Vitamin C or activated charcoal. Liquid Chlorophyll is also a detoxifier.
