You wouldn’t believe the amazing things you can find on Pinterest.
Recipes, craft ideas, inspirational thoughts and even miracle cures.
A couple of weeks ago while browsing in Pinterest, I came across a site describing how to take a Detox Bath.
A few minutes later Dagmar come down stairs announcing that she felt like death warmed over – headache, body aches, vomiting. She didn’t look good. It was definitely a flu bug.
I told her about the detox bath I had just read about – and she was miserable enough to try it.
It was simple – fill the bath tub with warm water and add 2 cups of Epson salts, one cup of baking soda, and a couple tablespoons of ground ginger.
She soaked for about 40 minutes – sweating the whole time – rinsed off and went to bed, still sweating.
Four hours later she woke up feeling great and ready to eat.
She declared it a miracle bath as she munched on saltines (just in case).
The head ache, body aches and vomiting were gone.
It worked so well with Dagmar, that when Jan come down with the same thing a few days later – I got a bath ready for him.
Same thing. Forty minute soak followed by a long sleep with lots of sweating. He woke up feeling fine.
I’m totally serious here.
The web site (which you can find here) gives the science behind the miracle. The secret is in the sweating.
And since it worked so well to take down the nasty flu bug – I wonder how it would work for a head cold? Sinus infection?
It’s worth a try. After all it can’t hurt and it’s really cheap.
I’m stocking up on Epson salt, baking soda and ginger – just in case.
