Mamyou, hee hee.
What I've read seems divided between people who think it's good to wash off additional toxins with a shower, and people who think it's good to leave the salts etc. on the skin. I'm not sure, if one dries vigorously, how much more stuff would be removed by taking a shower. Hey, I read about that hot/cold thing in a novel recently; it was a way to achieve immortality. Well, that and a bunch of other unspecified practices.
I've got a question about detox baths. I should probably post it as a separate thread, but since my last thread went completely unanswered, maybe I'll just tack it on here and hope for the best. For the last five days the pain in my left shoulder has been getting worse and worse. I figured I was finally getting the Lyme arthritis I've heard about. I confess, during those five days I did not do a detox bath, but I did continue on my meds, supplements, and anti-inflammatory diet. Today, I did two things. I went to the chiropractor and got adjusted, and I took a nice long detox bath as soon as I got home. It's like a miracle. My shoulder joint is 75% better; I barely feel any pain at all and my range of motion is better. Last night the pain was so bad it kept waking me up.
So now I'm wondering, is it most likely the bath or the adjustment that made the difference? Specifically, I am wondering if the magnesium or some other mineral in the epsom salt/hydrogen peroxide/ginger mix could have made that dramatic a difference because if so, maybe I am seriously deficient in something that I need.
I have Lyme; it doesn't have me.
