Deriving its name from a bitter saline spring found at Epsom, specifically in Surrey England, Epsom salt is actually NOT a type of salt, but is instead a naturally occurring magnesium and sulfate mineral compound. Long-used as a remedy for various ailments, Epsom salt offers a lot of beauty, gardening and household benefits as well.
According to studies, sulfate and magnesium are both easily absorbed by the skin, making an Epsom salt bath a convenient way to enjoy the mineral’s health benefits. Following are some of the many Epsom salt uses you could try.
1. For Body Relaxation
When dissolved in water such as in Epsom salt baths, the compound immediately goes to work inside the body as it is quickly absorbed by the skin. This leads to improved serotonin production that helps relieve stress and reduce the effects of adrenaline. An Epsom bath is likewise invigorating without causing anxiety or restlessness.

2. For Better Arterial Health
Epsom salts promote circulation and keep serious cardiovascular disorders at bay by reducing inflammation and safeguarding the arteries’ elasticity. The result is lower risk of plaque build-up, blot clots, and arterial wall damage. Soaking in an Epsom salt bath 3 – 4 times a week can help lower blood pressure, reduce stress levels, and improve overall cardiovascular health.
3. For Pain and Cramp Relief
When absorbed through the skin, Epsom salts help relieve muscle tension, joint inflammation, and pain. Just submerge yourself in warm water with Epsom salt to get quick relief from abdominal clamps, tension, and headaches. A warm Epsom salt soak is also therapeutic for sore and tired feet. Add essential oils to enhance the effect.
4. For Improved Nerve and Muscle function
Magnesium sulfate has other benefits aside from pain, cramp, and tension relief. It also helps in the cells’ fluid retention, and facilitates calcium’s transmission of chemical signals to the entire nervous system.
Epsom salt baths are one of the easiest ways to replenish magnesium levels naturally. Also read: Are You In Need Of Magnesium?
5. For Regulating Blood Sugar
Both sulfate and magnesium facilitate better production and use of insulin by the body. Regular Epsom salt use – either transdermally or orally – helps reduce the risk of diabetes through proper regulation of blood sugar levels and enhancing the overall levels of energy.
6. For Constipation Relief
Epsom salt works as a saline laxative. Drinking two tbsp. of Epsom salt dissolved in a cup of warm water will do the trick. However, refrain from using this remedy more than once in one day. Consult your doctor if the symptoms persist for a few days.
7. For Removal of Splinters
If you have a stubborn splinter to dislodge, just soak the affected part of the body in warm water with Epsom salts for several minutes. The inflammation will be relieved and the splinter will soften up, making it easier to remove.
8. For Soothing Bruises and Sprains
As an anti-inflammatory, Epsom salt can help ease the soreness associated with bruises and sprains. Simply add two cups of Epsom salt to warm water and soak the aches and pains away.
9. For Keeping Healthy Feet
Soaking your feet in warm water with Epsom salts not only relives aches but it can also treat athlete’s foot and other fungal infections.

Tags: HEALING | HEALTHY FATS | REMEDIES
Recently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.
Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.
Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.
Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.

Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.
You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.
Here’s how it works...
“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”
“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”
Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.
Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.
“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…
What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?
Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”
So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.
