Would you like to detox your body and feel refreshed, full of energy and vitality? Ginger baths are a great way to receive these benefits!
How to do a ginger bath:
Fill your tub with warm water. Add 2 cups of Epsom saltsto your tub. Epsom salts are magnesium sulfate which you will absorb through the water. They relax your muscles, joints, reduce stiffness and tension and even flush out toxins.
In addition, add 1 to 2 cups of baking soda which will make your bath more alkaline to help balance your pH and leave your skin feeling soft and smooth.
Finally, add 1 tablespoon to 1/4 cup of ground ginger to your tub. I recommend adding the ginger slowly to the tub to your tolerance level since it will cause your skin to slightly flush and will help you to sweat out toxins.
Ginger can cause much sweating and detoxification so make sure that you do it to a level that feels comfortable and isn’t too intense. Try to stay in the tub from 20 to 40 minutes or to your level of comfort if you need to stay in for shorter periods of time.
After getting out of the bath, I recommend that you wrap yourself in a large towel or blanket since you will continue to detoxify through sweating for the next few hours.
Get out of the bathtub slowly since you may feel lightheaded and tired initially from the detoxification. Be sure to drink plenty of water to help flush out toxins and replace any fluid loss. Taking a multivitamin/mineral supplement can help to further replenish any nutrients. Love, Dr. Susan
