Re: Are there any substitutes for drinking epsom salts?

Well, Sharon, I'm not a doctor or anything, but I have flushed about 12 times, so I have a little experience.

However, up until now, I've never tried using a substitute for the Epsom Salts . I have read that you could use magnesium oxide (with lemon juice) or magnesium citrate. I am going to try the magnesium citrate this evening when I flush. I will let you know how it goes...

According to Kirkman's website

different forms of magnesium do have differing effects upon the GI tract, so that may help determine your choice of which kind to use. ( Epsom Salt is magnesium sulfate)

Oxide Tends to firm stools
Glycinate A very gentle form, easier on the system
Citrate Tends to loosen stools
Sulfate Tends to loosen stools
Chloride Tends to loosen stool

I do hope this information is helpful.
