Thank you for your recommendation, Deaconfrost!!! This is why we have a tendency to suggest it to so many members!! It really does work!

Although I would like to caution those who may be trying a detox bath for the first time, please go slowly. Detox baths can and do produce a herx reaction for some when they first start using them. A person can ease in to them by only staying in the detox bath for 10 minutes the first time or two and watching for a herx reaction. If all goes smoothly, the next time raise the amount of time you are staying in the bath by about 5 minutes at a time.

For anyone wanting some more info on how beneficial detox baths are and why I suggest using them, please read this article that was written by a well known and well-respected LLMD, Dr. David Jernigan titled "Lyme Toxins the primary cause of you symptoms". Here is the link:

He Trav,

Did you try the Replenishing Bath? Of course, we can't depend on our feelings but I am curious.

The way I look at doing a protocol, or starting/trying something new is...give it a chance.

After all...when we eat healthy food we may not feel anything different-except miserable if we over eat, Ha!. At the same time if we stop eating we will notice the affects and end up starving to death.

Bottom line, and this is JUST AN EXAMPLE, eating healthy food IS doing something for our body whether we feel the difference right away or not. However, eating healthy food we WILL feel better in the long run. :D

...And so it is the same when we are on our healing protocol.

I so agree with you, Daisyrib! The healthy diet and lifestyle takes a while to notice, but after a while, when you look backwards, you will begin to see that you really are feeling better!

I have as yet to try the Replenishing Bath - I don't have a tub, so I have to use a watering trough!!! LOL! smhair Great visual, huh? LOL shocked I promise that I will be trying it though!!!

Hi everyone,

I have been away for the last week, but the first thing I did upon my return was to pick up some goat milk... I will definitely be trying the nutritive baths. Daisyrlb, thanks for posting the instructions.

I also agree that we should indulge from time to time... but believe me, there is no shortage of sugar in my life!! I probably should have explained that, lol. Fructose is particularly difficult for me (I think its the mold content) so I have to stay away from fruit. For some reason, though, regular cane sugar is easier for me. I am a serious chocaholic... probably not fabulous for my system... but it helps to clear my brain fog, gives me a bit of energy, helps with my digestion (probably the caffeine), and raises my seratonin levels. I just haven't been able to give it up, and don't plan to. I've tried replacements like green tea, but all other caffeine products seem to give me the jitters. Right now I'm just grateful that I can eat SOMETHING yummy without getting sick. I love my chocolate!

Also, I wanted to add that since taking the detox baths, my sweat smells different when I take a sauna, and to me this is further evidence that the baths are working. My sweat used to smell horrible, like sulfur or ammonia or something toxic, and now it just smells normal. Also, since taking the detox baths daily I can get through about 5-6 days without a major sauna and still feel relatively "clear," whereas before I could only last 3 days and then I'd start fading into a state of brain fog and exhaustion.

The detox baths are amazing and truly worth doing.

sending restful thoughts to everyone for a good nights sleep,

hi everyone,

I've been doing the Nutritive/Replenishing baths, and they have been wonderful. Daisyrlb, thank you again for this simple yet luxurious recipe. I think the eggs and the goat's milk are especially healing. I also noticed that my skin was absolutely glowing the next day~ so I consider the baths to be a mini-facial as well.

I did notice the first time I took the bath I became a bit itchy in the water (I have extra-sensitive skin and also a small bathtub). So the second time, I decreased the salt and sugar to 2/3 cup (instead of 1 c.) and added 2 eggs instead of one. This seemed to take care of it, and it was soothing and rejuvenating to my skin.

I'm going to add these nutritive baths 1-2 times a week, in between the detox baths. I take the nutritive bath the day after I do a long sauna/sweat, as I feel I need to be replenished after such an intense detox. I have also been doing the dry brushing before the baths.

All of this has been very helpful for me~ especially as someone whose digestion is extra-sensitive and thus has difficulty taking supplements/remedies of any kind. The skin is the largest organ... and we can both absorb and release so much through it. I'm relieved to be able to facilitate my healing & detox process in a way that my body can tolerate well.

Bump!
 
Daisyrlb posted the instructions from Dr. Jernigan's book for the Strengthening Nutritive bath.
 
I still haven't tried this either and plan on doing this...

Our bodies are wise as they can heal themselves, all one has to do is nourish them properly. Thus it's all about the Immune System mixed with Daily Detoxing and a dose of Positive Thinking!

Add me to the growing list of believers in the detox bath. Just had my third one in three days and I have to say it definitely works.

I remember doing this when I was big into Bikram yoga 5 years ago. The instructor suggested taking an epsom salt bath following the first few sessions. It worked then and it's working now.

I'd advise to start off slow...I went with 4 cups epsom salt and 16oz hydrogen peroxide. Today it was FREEZING here so I went with a hot bath and it practically knocked me out! So heed to the 98 degrees advise.

GINGER added to the salt and hydrogen peroxide seems to be the key for my daughter. We didn't know about adding the ginger until recently. She was taking the salt/hp baths and never really felt much relief. Once we added the ginger she said she actually feels less pain after the baths, especially in her head! I just grate fresh ginger and squeeze the juice in her bath, then add the rest in a tea ball. I wouldhig highly suggest adding this.

Hello, I was just wondering if you would recommend this soak for an 8 year old, he's 50 pounds. He's really bad and always sore, didn't walk for 5 days due to a swollen knee, now he's have shoulder and neck pain. Any help is great. Thank you!!!

I am not a medical professional, but I can tell you that my grandchildren enjoy this in their baths when they are having growing pains or recovering from a cold or flu.

Is there a certain amount you use for them or do you do as it says above, and how long?

I only use a cup of epsom salts and half a bottle of peroxide for them as they are younger (5 and 3).

As an adult, I find the bath self-limiting, that is, when I first started when I was very sick, I couldn't stay in very long. Now that I am almost back to full health, I can wallow for ages! You might find your son doesn't want to stay in very long at first. Even ten minutes to start with will help. I know, takes longer to fill the bath than that!
