Hi zizziz. When I did foot baths, I used mustard powder and cayenne. I found them very beneficial, for me moreso than the baths. I would try it both ways to see what you like best.
Whether you do a foot bath or a full bath, make sure you use a dry natural skin brush and brush your skin (or feet) in a circular motion toward the heart before getting in the bath. Rinse off with cool water.
Hi jewels25, welcome to the board!
Do you have Lyme disease or think you might?
For the detox bath, you add four cups of epsom salts with 16 ounces of hydrogen peroxide or eight ounces of baking soda into a bath of warm water. Before getting in, it is good to use a dry natural skin brush and brush your skin from the feet up in a circular motion toward the heart. Soak for up to twenty minutes. I would try less time for the first one to see how you respond. For some people, it makes them feel worse and they need to build up the time gradually.
Other things that are helpful are eating healthy, drinking water with freshly squeezed lemon, exercising whenever possible, taking appropriate supplements. I recommend reading Dr. Joseph Burrascano's 2008 Diagnostic Hints and Treatment Guidelines For Lyme and Other Tick Borne lllnesses at http://www.ilads.org/lyme_disease/B_guidelines_12_17_08.pdf He is one of the top Lyme doctors in the country, and many Lyme doctors follow his protocols. He lists supplenent and nutritional recommendations starting on page 27.
Well my test says neg but I do have a + bands at 18 and **41 and IND at **31 and 34 on my igm. I am in the process trying to find a llmd in my area. I am from Chicago and have some names of a couple of drs that are willing to treat according to DR B. I have read this dr papers and have been taking supplements that he reccommends.
Afew drs I have seen tell me I don't have lyme and that is why I want to see a dr who knows about lyme and go from there.
