Sometimes massage supply stores carry 20kg bags which save a huge amount over small boxes- you need to check around

Anyway, what are EPSOM salts? Magnesium? Is there any substitution for it? I don’t kow what to ask for here in Serbia or where…

I buy my epsom salts in bulk from ebay. Its a 25kg bag and it lasted me for nearly 3 months. Excellent value. I took epsom baths 2 times a week and it helped with recovering from a block of hard work. Otherwise you can get the salts in a 2kg tub or 1.5kg and 3kg bags from chemists.

Hi Duxx a little info on what they are as told to me by the people at the place where I buy mine from…I hope it helps.

Bathing in Epsom Salts is also an effective stand alone treatment for muscle pain in its own right. Its effects are threefold.

  1. It acts as a muscle relaxant. This affects not only the striated skeletal muscles but also the smooth muscles of the vascular system thus dilating the blood vessels and improving the circulation of nutrients to body tissues. This action also assists in the drainage of metabolic wastes. In the case of injury or chronic inflammatory condition this improvement of nutrient delivery and waste drainage prevents an excessive accumulation of inflammatory agents thereby reducing pain and promoting the body’s natural healing and repair process.

  2. The body uses part of the salts to bind toxins to in order to evacuate them more efficiently.

  3. It acts as an acetylcholine inhibitor blocking the transmission of abnormal afferent and efferent neural traffic. Thus it is able to dampen down nerves that have become agitated and have a far reaching effect on the operation of the nervous system.

Why do we need it?

Magnesium is essential for normal neuromuscular activity, synaptic transmission, and myocardial functioning and it is deficient in most western people being the root cause of many problems.

In its natural state Epsom salt also has an affinity for carbon. All the toxins produced by the body are based on this (eg. Lactic acid Uric acid Carbonic acid). When we bathe in it this acts to draw all the toxins out of the body allowing the body’s natural systems to function without being swamped in metabolic debris.

What conditions are helped by it?

The list of conditions helped by EPSOM SALTS (magnesium sulphate) is very long. It includes preeclampsia, autism, prolapse, arthritis, rheumatism, high blood pressure, migraine, irregular heartbeat, diabetes, depression, fibromyalgia, gout and many other’s either caused or aggravated by a lack of magnesium.

I’ve been told it’s also good to consume carbonated water during an Epsom salt bath.

Does it increase bone density?

why? :confused:

To quote Eddie Murphy: “We was so poor that if we wanted a whirlpool, we had to fart in the tub”

It helps with the whole detox process?
There could be more reasoning behind it, I’m not totally sure to be honest.
Then you have Charlie’s profoundly jocular explanation that also makes sense :o

Thanks Jason! I’ll give it a try

Seriously, some of these drinks are high in minerals.

the salt of “DEAD SEA” (i don’t know if his name is this) can help like the epsom sea? it’s rich in magnesium and other elements
