A really good friend recommended I see her healer. At this point, I was desperate and needed a solution, so I made an appointment. We spent a few hours together. She did psychic work on me, hands-on healing and she used some machine on me to stir up what she called “toxic energy” and get it moving. That’s when she ended by saying,

Take a bath using Epsom salt, apple cider vinegar and baking soda. This will help remove the negative energy you have sticking to you.

Ok? I was open to it and I did it. I believe that sometimes things work like the placebo effect. Because I truly believe that this ritual will get rid of toxic energy. But what does science say?

I am only going to get into the Epsom salt bath because that’s the one I’ve shared with my clients because I believed in its healing effects, detoxing.

Epsom Salt Baths For Detoxing

The benefits that come from heat from water—which is an opportunity to relax—and the benefits of heat on capillary dilation at skin level relieve pain. Also by adding Epsom salts, you may feel extra relaxed because the water feels silkier.

Science has shown the effects of magnesium in IV is amazing and has done such things as helping blood get healthier, relieve joint and muscle aches and help to relax the body and mind. These same results were not proven by those who just used Epsom salt in baths.

What I decided is that if something is going to make my bath experience more relaxing and it helps me to feel better, then why not. It definitely has shown more positive effects and absolutely no negative side effects so why not. And a new ritual that I starting practicing with my Epsom salt is scrubbing my body with it as I am stepping into the bath so the salt falls into my bath and my body is exfoliated.

Use Epsom salt baths to detoxify by oral ingestion: 10 to 30 grams for adults according to Healthline*. I have done this before and it definitely helped with bowel movements. And that is exactly what you want when you are detoxing. Get that sh*t out!! https://www.healthline.com/health/epsom-salt-detox#benefits
