A Safe, Simple, Non-Invasive Detox Strategy

Are you interested in the concept of detoxifying your body but are leery of drinking potions which are designed to scour your innards, at an as-yet-unknown level of discomfort to yourself afterward?

Today's world immerses us in a virtual sea of environmental toxins, and these can present quite a heavy load for the body to remove.  A simple way to help combat these toxins is to take a detoxification bath.  In spas today, the use of water therapy is very popular.  Bathing in waters containing various healing ingredients can help to release toxins, promote energy, increase circulation and foster a sense of general well-being.

A simple detoxifying bath can be done in your very own bathtub and does not require any special equipment.  Hot water helps draw toxins out of the body to the skin’s surface.  When the water cools, it pulls toxins from the skin.  The ocean, mineral, hot springs and herbal baths that have been used worldwide for centuries for their therapeutic effects serve as a testament to this methodology's utility.  And you don't even have to leave your house.

For this simple bathtub detox recipe, you will need:

1 cup Epsom salts
1/2 cup baking soda
About 1/2 cup powdered ginger

Combine those three powdered or granular ingredients and then add the mixture into a warm bath.  Stir as best you can to help them dissolve as much as possible (recognizing that the ginger won't really dissolve much at all).  Soak for 15 to 20 minutes.  After soaking, scrub the skin gently with a natural fiber like a cotton washcloth or a loofah sponge for 5 minutes.  Do not remain in the tub for more than 30 minutes.  Note the "murky" appearance of the water; this is due to the toxins released from your body through the detox process and deposited into your bath water.  Wrap yourself in a large towel or bathrobe and then cover up with a warm blanket.  You will sweat for about an hour.  The next morning you ought to wake up feeling pretty fantastic.

You can take a detoxification bath often, or at least once a month.  In addition to detoxifying the body, this bath is also helps relieve pain (the Epsom salt, which is really magnesium sulfate, does a lot of the work in this regard, but ginger is known as a pain reliever also).
