epson salt as a detox?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone heard of/used this as a detox for Lyme? I gave my DS a bath and he developed diarrhea this evening. I am not sure if it is just a coincidence (his brother just had a short bout of it).

I'm also always on the lookout for C-Diff. He is on so many antibiotics that this is always never far from my thoughts even though he takes massive pro-biotics. Fingers crossed that he is better tomorrow!

Well, it is magnesium, which can produce loose bowels if too much, but we've never seen that with the bath.

Epsom salt baths over here have always been a good thing-

My dd does an epsom salt bath about once a week. Never caused any issues with diarrhea. In most cases, it has always resulted in a more relaxed child.

Great news! He had a bath again in the epsom salt and no diarrhea tonight! He liked it to...found it very relaxing!

2 cups in a full tub of warm water is what is generally recommended, so one cup in half a tub and less in a quarter tub etc

 

It should not affect the bowels unless swallowed.
