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.

Do you bathe in it or use it as a supplement or both?

I don't have a tub, nor the patience to fuss with filling large plastic container with water and many cups of Epsom salts. I was thinking that taking a nice long hot shower would be relaxing. I could multi-task: shave, brush teeth, and soak... (more)

Sounds slippery trying to walk around in plastic bags. Careful with that one. The shower thing is convenient, I just dissolve about a cup of Epsom Salts into a baby sized bath tub with some water and stand in that while showering sometimes, I'm... (more)

Epsom salt baths have been shown to increase sulfate and magnesium levels, and as Paul Jaminet says : In the book (Step Three) we explain why nearly everyone is deficient in micronutrients. The problems are most severe for minerals: water... (more)

That's pretty cool, or you could just pop them. I used to be scared of supplements too. A bit of potassium iodine, magnesium, chromium and selenium spread out throughout the day isn't going to do anything bad, especially mixed with food. As long... (more)

I've realized that my mouth tastes salty about 5 minutes soaking in a Mg bath. Does anyone else experience this? Could it be an issue w/r/t too much Mg?

I take baths with epsom salt: usually about 2 cups of salt per bath. I don't notice any salty taste. How much salt do you normally put in your bath?

Is it simply the repletion of magnesium via transdermal absorption, or is there another mechanism at play? I ask this because a single epsom salt bath felt significantly more effective than my oral magnesium supplementation at relieving stress. (more)

I use magnesium chloride which comes from the the Zechlein (?) sea. If Epsom salts do the same then I shall buy some of those. Much cheaper! Epsom was supposed to be one of the earliest spa towns in the UK, though I am sure that Bath predates it... (more)
