Can anybody guess why? I've been using it as a binder, taken before coffee enemas. It does help with a lot of 'toxic' symptoms caused by the enemas -- such as nausea etc. -- but I find that the AC itself will tend to make me feel malaised and kind of sick, dehydrated, and also induce diarrhea. For example, tonight I took it in anticipation of doing an enema, but never got the chance to, and now I feel horrible. I've wondered if I notice it less usually because the AC is having some effect on toxins, which the CE's then eliminate more rapidly.
