Run a bath and add 2 cups of Epsom salts or sea salt and soak the misery away for a minimum of 20 minutes. Do the soak for two consecutive nights in a row and you should feel that your body has recovered and maybe the event was not as bad as you first thought.
Soaks are truly beneficial to the whole body and should be done 3 times a week. Soaking in magnesium supports the body at all levels from the nerve function to supporting your brain, your heart, your muscles, balancing blood sugars, blood pressure, intestines, reducing inflammation, supporting calcium absorption, to dissolving calcium deposits like heal spurs or brain plaques.
Foot Soak or Full Bath
The water does not have to be hot, it can be cool which is refreshingly nice in the summer.
You will know you have done a bit too much soaking when you have a bowel response, similar to eating too much citrus when the good oranges are in season.
G had an experience last summer that had her soaking daily. She had been out in sandals and grass had snuck in between the toes and cut her foot. What a nasty spot to be hurt. We started foot soaks right away. The initial foot injury actually healed very fast.
Foot soaks continued as a daily event for several months. The feet, the legs and the whole body was responding very well to soaking in the magnesium transdermally. Body stiffness and achyness of feet and legs had melted away.
