I’ve got your or their weight loss efforts covered with this amazing natural tip to help improve their progress naturally. Best of all, it’s the perfect way to end a particularly stressful day.
Incorporate Epsom Salts In Your Life
As you may have guessed from this post’s title, you need to start incorporating Epsom salts into your life. But what exactly are they?
Epsom salts, named from that famous and bitter saline spring in Surrey, England, are not technically salts. To be precise, they’re actually a naturally occurring compound of magnesium and sulfate.
Historically, Epsom salts are a verifiable jack-of-all-trades. They’ve been used for their multiple health benefits, beauty applications, and are even used for home improvement projects like stump removal!
Epsom Salts and Their Health Benefits
But let’s get back to your health; Epsom salts are able to have a palpable impact on your health because they’re so easily absorbed by your skin.
Magnesium itself is able to help your body healthily and naturally, regulate over the three-hundred enzymes, improve your muscle and nerve functions, fight inflammation, and can help reduce joint and muscle pain.
Sulfate, on the other hand, helps you flush out toxins with increased efficiency, reduce the intensity of headaches and migraines, and even help your body absorb nutrients with increased efficiency.
Epsom salts are also an invaluable part of your health and beauty kit because they’ve been known to be an amazing natural exfoliator and help treat severe cases of acne.
Any athlete, or anyone who exercises regularly, needs Epsom salts to combat athlete’s foot, toenail fungus, gout, bruises, sore muscles, and sprains.
But coming back to the question of weight loss, how do they help you achieve an ideal weight? By being an amazing natural form of detoxifying your body, Epsom salt baths are able to rid your body of the toxins that hinder your body’s ability to burn calories efficiently.
Before you explore the different kinds of Epsom salt baths at your disposal, there’s one disclaimer: if you have a history of high blood pressure you need to consult your family physician before trying these baths out.
Types of Epsom Salt Baths
Simply add two cups (for a total of four cups) of baking soda and Epsom salt to your hot bath. When you’re inside, gently rub your skin with a sponge. This bath is particularly effective at removing excess toxins in your body.
Apple Cider Vinegar Bath
You can combine apple cider vinegar and Epsom salt, at a ration of two to one, to your bath. Relax in it for about forty minutes.
It’s also an amazing way to get rid of stress as well.
For this one I recommend using really hot water (as much as your threshold allows). Add two cups of Epsom salt and two tablespoons of fresh crushed ginger into the bath.
Relax for about thirty minutes.
- Always drink a lot of water because Epsom salt will cause you to sweat out the toxins.
- Avoid adding fragrances because they can lessen the overall effects of the baths.
- And enjoy these baths only three times per week.
