Charcoal for Health

Articles by Dr. Erdman are for informational purposes, and are not to be taken as specific medical advice.

We are going to cover charcoal in this article. Charcoal is used as a heat source for grilling foods and used in creating metals. But that isn’t the kind I’m writing about. Did you know charcoal can have medicinal value? Egyptian records from 1500 BC show they used activated charcoal to absorb odors from infected wounds.

There is a difference between charcoal for grills, and activated charcoal for medicine. Activated charcoal is still the same burned wood, coconut shell or peat, but it has also been treated with oxygen. The medicinal charcoal is very porous and nonpolar, allowing it to bind toxins and odors from gasses or liquids that are 1000 times its weight. It is tasteless and odorless, yet still very black.

Is a Multivitamin Right for You?

Articles by Dr. Erdman are for informational purposes, and are not to be taken as specific medical advice.

Here we are at the start of a new year already. The New Year’s resolutions will be made….again. 
Getting healthier is one of the top goals for many people. Some say they will eat better, exercise more or quit eating certain foods. Many people add vitamin supplements to their diet as a part of improving health.

When looking for supplements, people want an easy and cheap way to help themselves get better nutrition. Unfortunately, neither of those can be priorities when selecting supplements.

Here we are in the midst of cold and flu season. I’ve written many articles on why you should shun the flu vaccine for good health. But, as life would have it, there are times we all succumb to the common cold virus. The old coughing, sneezing, stuffy head, sore throat and chest congestion complex is no fun at all.

Flu Shots-part 2

Articles by Dr. Erdman are for informational purposes, and are not to be taken as specific medical advice.

Here is part two of the flu shot article we started two weeks ago.  These two articles are all the proof you need to show your medical doctor why you will not be taking the flu shots again.  If you want the specific citations of the research presented, you can email me for them.  They are mostly from mainstream, peer reviewed medical journals and other professional sources.   Continuing with her paper, she writes...

Flu Shots Harm Your Health-part 1

Articles by Dr. Erdman are for informational purposes, and are not to be taken as specific medical advice.

Every year at this time we are bombarded and badgered by mainstream medicine about flu shots.  I have written several articles on these topics, so I hesitate to bring you yet another series on the flu shot.  Since they don’t give up trying to shoot you up with this poison, I take it as my duty to continue to inform those who haven’t heard the alternatives available.  The next two articles were actually written by my oldest daughter as an English composition essay.  I couldn’t have written it any better, so I’m just going to present it in a two part series.

Does Colloidal Silver Really work?

Articles by Dr. Erdman are for informational purposes, and are not to be taken as specific medical advice.

For thousands of years health care practitioners and health minded people have been using the health benefits of silver to treat a myriad of human ailments. The ancient Phoenicians understood that keeping water, wine and vinegar in silver lined vessels maintained the freshness of each. Silver is a germicide and a disinfectant. It is a natural antibiotic, anti-viral and anti-fungal agent. The only problem is that our wonderful government agency, the FDA, does not agree. They decided in 1999 that all colloidal silver products sold over the counter are unsafe and mislabeled. They state they are unaware of any evidence to support its use for any serious disease.

How many times have you been asked to give your hard earned money to one of the hundreds of causes working towards a cure for a particular disease? It seems like we are bombarded daily with pleas for help. How many of us just blindly give to one of these organizations without even looking into how your money will be spent?
