  • Our holistic doc does not suggest charcoal except in extreme cases and even then I don't know the dose. I would call and talk to your doctor about it. Our doc recommends lots of fluids (no milk though) with electrolytes preferably and the BRATTY diet (bananas, rice, applesauce, tea, toast, yogurt).
