Healing baths are good for us
In the past couple of centuries it was well known that some waters had more healing power than others. These waters were often in the mountains where one went for the crisp, clean air to help those with tuberculosis.
Other healing waters were centred around natural springs. The waters that came out of the ground there had different minerals in them and were known to be of benefit to people. Healing baths can help strengthen our immune system.
Most people like to keep clean. In our western society it has become the norm to
have showers instead of baths. In past centuries showers were not known unless
you stood under a waterfall. There are some people who need the Homeopathy remedy Sulphur who do not like to have a wash/bath/shower. They enjoy being scruffy also.
Today, many people in Western society have a bath in their homes. You can use your bathwater, along with additives, for the purpose of healing yourself and your family.
Different salts are good to add to your bath water
Epsom salts - magnesium sulphate
Bi-carbonate of soda or sodium bi-carbonate
Common salt - sodium chloride
Start with adding half a cup of one of these salts to your bath. Soak and enjoy, knowing that you are receiving extra healing as cleanse yourself.
When using Epsom salts you will find that soap will not suds. The epsom salts stops this reaction of the soap with the water.
Go carefully when you are starting these cleansing baths. Do not have the water too hot. Also the bath may be more slippery than normal so go carefully when getting in and out of the bath.
There is more information about healing baths in my book Allergies and Chronic Fatigue A Natural Approach.
Enjoy your soak!
