Recipe for a good nights sleep

yeah, I wish I had a tub this deep

5 cups Epsom Salts

1 cup Baking Soda

Poor both ingredients into a large tub and fill with water as warm as you can tolerate comfortably.

Soak 10 to 20 minutes.

Go to bed and pass out. Sleep delightfully deeply for 7 to 9 hours.

No kidding. This works for me like nothing else has. Epsom salt baths are widely talked about in withdrawal groups and circles as well as alternative medicine sites. The thing is no one ever really says how much to use. This is a whole lot of Epsom salts.

We found sources of bulk salts and the baking soda both. It can be pretty darn cheap.

This knocks me out. Now it may be because I’ve never tolerated much magnesium supplementation and most of us withdrawing from psych drugs need mag really bad. Not everyone’s gut can handle supplementation with magnesium though.

When magnesium is taken in through the skin it completely bypasses the gut and so there is no gastro discomfort.

Perhaps it works for me because I am in need of magnesium. I can’t say how well it will work for anyone else.

I used to take inhibitory amino acids which worked nicely for a bit. At this point though I simply don’t want to ingest anything that makes me feel different. Aminos strike me as vaguely psychotropic and I just don’t want to do that anymore. In any case this bath has gotten me off the aminos and I feel better for that as well.

So give this a shot. I’m utterly shocked at the difference it’s made.

It also gets rid of my body pain. I have really bad pain that seems to be similar to those who are diagnosed with fibromyalgia. And in point of fact this bath is also recommended in fibro circles. I have no idea what my pain is caused by but I’m assuming it’s simply the withdrawals and hope it will eventually pass.

The bath makes the pain remit long enough for me to fall asleep.

Also my husband takes this bath too and also swears by it. He’s “normal” for whatever it’s worth and he says he sleeps much more deeply and longer.

And yes, this was a rare new post. Not a reposting.

Be well everyone.
