This has crossed my mind while reading all the positive responses on the slippery elm and saffron tea threads. I am guessing that the reason they have been working so good is that they coat the intestinal tract and stomach and prevent leaky gut? Anyways, I read awhile back that activated charcoal coats the intestinal tract and removes toxicity and poisons in ones body. Though it did say not to use if you have any constipation. Doctors use it frequently in place of ipecac (sp) syrup for poisonings alot. I was just wondering if any one has used this for their psoriasis? I am currently expecting and would not try this at the time but was just wondering.
