Re-Boot with Epsom Salts!

I often surprise my clients when I recommend they take a hot bath with Epsom salts to refresh their mind, body and spirit. It may sound crazy, but that $4 carton of salts you have stored in your cupboard may be just the ticket for a quick and inexpensive pick-me-up in times of trouble!

Epsom salts are a pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate, both of which are more easily absorbed through the skin than the stomach. Our magnesium levels have dropped significantly in the last century due to farming practices that have depleted magnesium from the soil and due to diets high in fat, sugar, salt, and protein… all of which cause magnesium insufficiency.

Replenishing your magnesium and sulfate levels can improve heart and circulatory health, improve use of insulin, reduce toxins (from medications and the environment), flush heavy metals, improve nerve function by electrolyte regulation, restore calcium levels, increase serotonin (lifts the mood and reduces stress), reduce inflammation and pain, improve absorption of nutrients, improve formation of  brain tissue, and reduce migraine headaches.

So the next time you are feeling tired, toxic, depressed, achy, stressed or sick, simply dissolve 2-6 cups, depending on the severity of your symptoms, of Epsom salts in a hot bath. Soak for as long as you can tolerate it, re-warming the bath often and rehydrating the body as needed. After your soak you will likely enjoy a fresh perspective, a rejuvenated body, and a deeper connection to the spirit.
