Does anyone else feel weird buying so many huge bags of epsom salt and the huge containers of hydrogen peroxide??  I think they are watching me at Wal-Mart wondering if this stuff is being used to make drugs or something!  It's on the shelf right in front of the pharmacy and I always look up and they are watching me!  Seriously, I'll go in a week later and there are the exact same amount of bags on the shelf as there were the last time I was there...

LOL Tala! I don't feel weird at all. I think I would have walked up to them and told them what it was for, lol.

I am just sad that the largest container of epsom salts I can find is a 4 lb carton. I buy 3-4 at a time. How big of containers of epsom salts do you find and where?????

Rite Aid has a 6lb bag that is easier to handle than the cartons.

Maybe we should all get dressed up in sneaky spy outfits and make a run on all the drugstores at once and cause a media sensation!!!

On second thought, perhaps we don't want the attention of the Office of Homeland Security. Makes me giggle to think of it, though!

The pharmacists at Walgreen's know me by name - I don't even have to say my last name. One asked me once if I had Lyme from the detox/prescriptions I get. I think the pharmacists (at least the ones I go to) are pretty open-minded - at least about Chronic Lyme.

Actually pharmaceutical hydrogen peroxide is not sufficiently pure to be soaking in so frequently. It is not FDA approved for that use, and for good reason.

Food grade hydrogen peroxide is the only grade approved for internal use. If you buy it in bulk it is actually the same price as the pharma grade you get at the grocery store.

It's 35% H2O2, as opposed to just 3% like the store bought stuff, so you need way less of it. One 8oz cup treats a standard sized tub full of water.

I get mine at this place. Buy two gallons at a time to get the best value.

cheapest I can find and free shipping. I get the 25 lb bag and it lasts a long time. But they sell it even larger.

I have never done the detox bath. I was told by my yoga instuctor to use the salt. But I have never heard of the peroxide before.
I mean, it that the same stuff that they bleach hair with?
I had gotten 60 cc's of perioxide pumped into me daily and it made me smell like punch or pickled corn.
But I did not know about soaking in it. I will have to do my homework.
Our family all got lyme in 2004. It has been a long battle. But all is well now with my children. Feb 8 TH of 2009 is when I left Envita. And I am celebrating a year of perfect health.

Your welcome. I hated buying small boxes and going through them so quickly. These large bags last a long time. I use 2 cup fulls in each bath. I don't do the peroxide either. Just the salt bath. Not sure what the peroxide does. I had done them before in the past, but prefer just the salt bath.
