With all the benefits of taking epsom salt baths do you think taking them in city tap water is safe? I live in San Francisco where people praise about how clean our public water system is, but it still has flouride, chlorine, etc. Is it still... (more)

You can add baking soda to your Epsom salt to buffer your water even more. Here is my Epsom salt bath soak recipe.

you may also want to check if your water supply contains chloramine as well. when i was looking in to something similar a while back (a shower filter that would remove both chloramine and chlorine)...the best option seemed to be a... (more)

Since I lost some twenty pounds on the paleo diet, I have developed several new wrinkles in my face. I know when I take a shower I absorb a fair amount of chlorine so I wonder whether any of you have observed that a filter for chlorine in the... (more)

Hot chlorinated municipal water dries your skin terribly. Me and my wife did not notice it until we moved to the country and used well water for a year. Then we visited my father in the city and took a hot shower. It dried our skin horribly and... (more)

I appear to be chlorine-sensitive, and have thus been avoiding municipal/bathing water as much as possible. In brief, the fumes from hot water make me dizzy, cause headaches, and difficulty breathing. (This has been true throughout my life.) I... (more)

When you eat out do you prefer bottled water in plastic (glass is rare and expensive) or tap water with fluoride/chlorine etc.? I believe iodine can detoxify fluoride and chlorine according to Dr. David Brownstein, MD so I believe tap water to be... (more)

Unless I lived in an area where the municipal water tested poorly - tap water every time. Tap water with a relatively inexpensive filter (Pur for instance) ideally - the filter would cost much less than buying water bottles. If in an area with... (more)

How am I supposed to maintain a healthy gut, if chlorine from tap water, not even from drinking it, but from showering with it, is absorbed through the skin and is killing odd my gut bacteria? If this was the case, wouldn't everyone that grew up... (more)

Well... most people DO have screwed up guts. I know a lot of people who install shower filters like this http://www.pureshowers.co.uk/ and drink/cook with nothing but filtered or bottled water. We don't currently have a shower filter since... (more)

Do you think that the chlorine in normal bath water would make an epsom salt bath not worth doing?

So, I started doing the whole magnesium oil thing, and now I'm wondering what else might be best delivered to the body via the skin? I heard recently about a B-12 patch for people with damaged small intestines. And conversely, could PUFAs... (more)

The main thing you want to watch out for when you take a shower is the steam, stuff like chlorine becomes a gas and you inhale it. I really recommend a shower filter, you can pick them up for around $30 online.

Chlorine is in our tap water and is one reason people drink bottled water. Sometimes when I turn the tap on I can actually smell the chlorine. But what about exposing your skin to chlorine everyday when you take a shower. Am I being paranoid or... (more)

Several years ago invested in a good Chlorine + heavy metal water filter for the shower. Initially it was to help with asthma as the chemical water vapor is inhaled and possibly irritating. Side benefits include nicer hair and skin. Here's a link... (more)

What do no-shampoo folks do after swimming in a chlorine-laden lap pool? Just rinsing with water doesn't seem to do the trick in my hair - but battling back the chlorine with the chemicals in my shampoo seems like a poor option as well. I love... (more)
