Health Tip – Sept. 14 – Take a Soak to Relieve Pain

Filed under: Dee Dee |

Take a soak to relieve pain. A soak in in a bath with 2 cups of Epsom salts for at least 12 minutes a day a few times a week can help relieve muscle pain which may be caused by a magnesium deficiecny. Epsom salts are made up of magnesium sulfate and can be absorbed through the skin.

The American diet has nearly 65% less magnesium than it did decades earlier because we eat more processed foods. Foods high in magnesium include bananas, avocados, peanuts, whole grains, and soy. Eating a healthy diet can help prevent magnesium deficiency, but if you experience muscle pain, adding in a good soak in the Epsom salts may be just what you need.
