I discovered another great use for charcoal last night.

Yesterday I traveled from Kunghur to Murwillumbah for a government sponsored Landcare project to give composts to farmers. I was running late and did not have a chance to eat my regular good wholesome food so I stopped at the bistro and was told there was going to be free platters of food brought out soon.

So I waited and my hunger grew and I became forgetful of some very important reasons that I hardly ever eat out. One was that I am allergic to MSG (621) and it turns me into a mind numbed zombie with a headache for 2 days straight.

Yes you can see what was unfolding unfortunately I could not. After scoffing a lot of the great free food I suddenly realised my heart was pumping hard and I said to a friend I think I might of ingested MSG. In stead of being horrified her brain jumped into action and she started to think of what would help me not get turned into a zombie.

My friend had been carrying charcoal tablets as she is in the middle of getting all the heavy metal mercury fillings in her teeth out. She said try these and drink a lot of water. Having no mental capacity of my own on that spot I scoffed 5 tablets and drank a lot of water went outside and then had a beer.

To my surprise my heart slowed down and the headache started to go. Never has this ever been the case once I have eaten by mistake something with MSG in it not even a box of asprins can cure the pain. But Charcoal did and its ironic I work in charcoal and could never see the link.

Well I am alive and typing and its the next day I had a bad sleep sweated a lot woke up a lot but no headache in fact I even enjoyed a nice surf today at DBar beach.

Thank you Charcoal you work for MSG via ingestion.

    Interested in your allergy to MSG. Mine is sulphide or additive 220 which is included in all wine. Then I found out, thanks to Penningtons Pure Wine that one drop of hydrogen peroxide (h2o2) does away with the sulphyr headaches. It has been a life changer for me!! I use it on any liquid that i chose to drink. Bloody magic. All the rewards without the hangovers, or for the most.
    I normally use a carbon filter at the tap, and that is just as good, but cannot find a tap that pours wine of my choice. Bugger

    Dolph, any comments on charging Char fit for sandy soils. I plan to add animal manure, mulch, dolomite and potash, and seaweed.

    Ok Terry Char works its wonders when it is fully colonised. So make sure the animal manures are aged or your going to let the whole thing compost properly before use. A great way to do it is also with green manure plants. So being in autumn / winter you could mix up what you got put it out and seed in say Red Clover or perhaps a winter legume. This way it give the char a season to colonise and be ready to pump your veggies full of luxury levels of honest to goodness nutrients.
