at one point, i couldnt be up for more than a couple of hours then i was back down. my thyroid was shot, my liver plugged, my kidneys weak, my brain fogged up, my nerves a broken chain of tattered rags, my lungs barely able to pull half a breath. that was in 2000.
MH is the barefoot herbalist. his methods are the pinnacle as far as i am concerned.
a cup or two of Sea Salt is a great bath, or do the triple threat of epsom, baking soda, and Sea Salt , a cup of each. you can play with concentrations too, once you get int he swing of it. i usually just do the epsonm and baking soda and do two cups of each. i can tell when i have been in long enough by the taste in my mouth.
whatever you do, no iodized salt! rather than toss some haines iodized salt, i put it in my bath and shut my thyroid down for a couple of days. most uncomfortable. the thyroid reacts to too much Iodine that way. i even knew better then, i just didnt think about it when i did it!
