Relax and Cleanse your Body with a Detox Bath

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.

    Do you know how often it is safe to take a detox bath…I took one last week and i lost a pound overnight! I'd like to do it again but i wasn't sure if it is something that is safe to do that frequently?

    Christy: There is nothing in the detox bath that would harm you. When I
    was on Phsae 2 I did one a week just to aid in getting the broken down fat
    to flush out and it was always affective. It does make you a little sleepy
    so I would recommend doing it at night before bed and as often as you like.
    I would think 1-2x a week is completely fine.

    Hi Carol. I have a friend and she afraid to do the detox bath. Because she gets yeast infections any time she takes a bath. I thought with the baking soda and epsom salt. She won’t have that issue. What do you think?

    I am very prone to yeast infections and stopped using fancy bath products years ago, but I have never had one using these products.

    I simply needed to say thanks once more. I am not sure the things that I would have created in the absence of the entire secrets contributed by you on such situation. It had been the terrifying dilemma in my circumstances, however , understanding a specialised form you dealt with it took me to jump for fulfillment. I’m grateful for the advice and thus sincerely hope you really know what an amazing job you have been getting into training other individuals via a site. I am sure you’ve never got to know all of us.

    I have always used this detox bath, and I always include a couple of tablespoons of ginger, it helps to aid the detoxing.

    Is it safe to do when your pregnant or postpartum?

      I would discuss baths with your doctor when pregnant. After pregnancy the bath is epsom salt and baking soda so there is no harm to you.
