Detox baths are a good way to start your journey. It is recommended to cleanse and detox before loading. You can also do this throughout the protocol.
Pour one pound of Epsom Salt into a very warm bath with one pound of baking soda. Soak in tub of warm/hot water for at least 20 minutes. Do not shower until next day.
Epsom Salt “detoxes” your body by drawing out the toxins and replenishing nutrients that your body needs. It can make your skin feel nice and soft. Baking soda increases CO2 levels in the blood which dilates blood vessels and increases circulation. This can cause a “tired” feeling. It is sort of like a “chemical exercise”. The magnesium and bicarbonate are flooding your body with much-needed minerals and nutrients. Magnesium is a natural mild sedative and is great inside and out for reducing muscle spasms and strains.
You may feel light-headed, dizzy, weak, and completely drained after a detox bath (which is a symptom of weak adrenals), so doing it around bedtime is a good idea. Take advantage of the relaxation to get a good night’s sleep.
Taking a fresh orange slice with a little sea salt to suck on during the bath can help relieve the dizziness and light-headedness. You can also add a handful of dead sea salts to the bath, which will add minerals and micro nutrients that will feed and improve the skin.
