Epsom Salt Bath Detox Can Draw Out Toxins

BATHS:

Baths can draw out toxins and relax you at the same time.  Simply put 2 cups of Epsom Salts (magnesium) and ½ cup of baking soda in a bath (not too hot) and soak for 15 minutes.  Drops of an essential oil can be added for therapeutic purposes as well.  This can relax achy muscles and provide magnesium to your body at the same time, which is relaxing.  I have other wonderful bath soaking minerals and products in my office and will soon have them available on line.

Castor Oil Packs – Liver Detox

CASTOR OIL & FLAX OIL PACKS:

Castor Oils Packs are also popular done over a specific site, such as the liver to draw out deeper toxins.

You use a flannel cloth soaked in either castor or flax oil and place it over the site you want to detox, i.e. liver, one kidney at a time, a painful area, abdomen, neck, etc., and follow by placing saran wrap over it and then a heating pad.  Leave on the site for 20 – 30 minutes, then remove.  Wash the flannel for future use.  This really pulls out toxins that cause aches and pains.

Can Food Allergies be the Cause of Your Symptoms or Illness?

Food Allergies / Sensitivities:
Generally people think of allergies as a histamine reaction to dust, molds, and pollen, yet, food allergies / sensitivities can be the cause of your symptoms or illness.

Mud Pack Detox: Detoxification Program

MUD PACKING

For years, one of my favorite detoxes, which can draw out toxins and pain, has been a mud pack detox.  I once had my teeth cleaned by a dentist who used a laser and left with a dull pain on one tooth that would just not go away.  He said the procedure did not cause it and two other dentists said nothing was wrong.  Hmmmm.

Detoxification Programs

More chemicals, pesticides, xeno-estrogens, drugs (medical and otherwise) have been introduced into our world in the last 20 years than all years of the world’s existence.  Our bodies were not created to accommodate this and thus disease, stress, obesity, and many medical conditions previously not seen are increasing incrementally.  The heart attack and cancer rates were almost unheard of in the early 1900’s and now they are so common that 1 in 2 -3 is reported to get cancer.  It is not surprising that doing a detoxification two times per year is highly recommended to maintain your health.

Following are a few of my favorite recipes for making Muesli, Protein Shakes and Nut Milks.  Experiment to include your own tastes – it is fun, nutritious and rewarding.
