Epsom Salts Bath for Fibromyalgia Treatment

by Megan
(Seattle, WA, USA)

I read about research done in Israel on fibromyalgia. In their study, Epsom salts baths provided the most pain relief, so I decided to try it.

This is a 15-30 minute therapy bath that will temporarily take away all your pain.

Use 1-2 cupfuls of Epsom salts and fill tub up about halfway. I also add glycerin because my skin is very dry. I've tried other oils, but I like glycerin the best because it doesn't leave a residue in the tub.

Use water that is your normal bath temperature. Soak. Follow with a shower. I am always pain free for at least an hour afterwards, and it feels so good to get that total relief for awhile.

I couldn't find the original research, but here is a link at http://www.yourfibrosupport.com/1/post/2012/04/epsom-salt-bath-relieves-fibromyalgia-pain.html which uses a slightly different combination of ingredients.

Thank you for your input Megan.

Fibromyalgia is truly an awful condition and any relief from the pain, even if temporary, I am sure would be welcome.

I am not surprised at the ingredients you mention because hot water combined with Epsom salts is well known to relieve sore muscles that have been overworked.

There is a lot to be said about establishing an alkaline pH level in your body to relieve pain and Epsom salts will definitely help.

To take this further I recommend drinking only alkaline water instead of tap or bottled water which is acidic.

If anyone else has had success with a home remedy please "speak up". Perhaps we can hear from someone that has used apple cider vinegar. ;-)
