Hi All,
It seems like when I take a epsom salt bath the next morning my stools are better, could it be a sign I need magniusum in my diet? Like those doing the sunflower seeds and spinach that's high in magnesium, has anyone just taken a supplement of maginsium and felt better?
Thank You

Good post- I was wondering about this bath as a means to absorb Mg without any gastrointestinal (D) effects that can come with oral Mg supplements. I can't answer your question but it's interesting to see your report of improved symptoms. This stuff is available OTC at the drugstore- correct? (PS I tried the spinach/sf seed diet minus the seeds, using sf butter but the butter quickly cause me to flare, so for now I am simply eating alot more spinach than I used to- no real improvement though.)

Tried everything under the sun (natural and alternative)
Some partial success with TSO but was too expensive to keep up 
Currently Remicade and lots of probiotics, tapering pred again, maybe surgery this year

spinach is great for everyone, but I think it can cause laxative effects. I have to by more epsom salt today. It's great for detoxing too. I'm getting tested for Lyme, Hypothyroid and back to them looking for a bacterial infection. Why do I get better on antibiotics for a couple days and then it's back to mush stools and inflammation. Maybe the antibiots helps the inflammation and that's it. Maybe I just have UC too.
Thank you for emailing back.

Yes Probiotic you can get the salts over the counter. Use two cups for a bathtub of water, that's what I do. Sorry I didn't answer this in the other post.
