Have you ever felt like you are just dragging along? Like there is something deep down inside of you that need to be cleansed and detoxed? Enter in the magic of Epsom salts. Epsom salts have been used to heal many ailments for centuries. They are excellent at destressing and detoxifying the entire body.
Many of us unknowingly suffer from a magnesium deficiency. Our bodies require this in order to function properly. Magnesium stimulates the nerves, limits inflammation, and improves oxygenated blood flow.
Magnesium can be absorbed through the skin thus making an Epsom salt bath the perfect remedy. We absorb magnesium and sulfate through the skin and are then taken up through the bloodstream. When you soak in an Epsom salt bath your pores pull in the magnesium and sulfate which then moves the toxins out of the body.
Epsom salt baths are also known to reduce inflammation. Daily salt baths can treat gout, athlete’s foot, bruises, sprains, and relaxes sore muscles. Those struggling with a chronic illness can also benefit from Epsom salt baths because, as previously stated, it removes toxins from the body.
How to Use Epsom Salts:
Turn your Epsom salt bath treatment into a relaxing period as you will need at least 40 minutes to soak in the tub. Within the first 20 minutes of treatment the salts pull toxins out of your body through the skin. The second 20 minutes allows for the absorption of minerals to occur.
