Feeling Under the Weather?

Whenever I hear friends and co-workers say that they aren’t feeling well I immediately mention to them about a great bath that I take several times a month.

This bath is a tried & true bath, for my family at least.  

It’s really easy, only has 2-3 main ingredients.  Start with bath water as hot as you can stand it.  To it add:

- 2 Cups Epsom salts
- 1-2 Cups Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1 Cup Baking Soda (optional, but does help with the PH of the water and your body, individuals with edema, liver disease, kidney disease, or high blood pressure should use caution if using baking soda as it does contain sodium.)

You can also add a few drops your own essential oils mix depending on whether you are under the weather or stressed out.

I also like to put on some relaxing music, and try to mediate or close my mind off.

Stay in the bath until you are sweating it out or until the water cools down.  Then rinse in a cool to luke warm shower.  Try not to use any body soap or shampoo that isn’t natural as well.

That’s it.  I do recommend that you drink lots of water the day you plan on doing this and make sure you drink lots of water after you’ve taken it.  Also, have a light meal during the day as well if you don’t eat anything this bath may make you feel dizzy and light headed.

I am normally exhausted by the time I’ve taken this bath so I take mine just before bedtime.  By the next morning I am usually feeling a lot better.
