Epsom Salts as a health aid
Epsom Salts, health and cancer



Epsom salt, or magnesium sulphate, (magnesium sulfate for our American friends) is a traditional health remedy with a number of benefits. Not surprisingly, these stem from the magnesium, and sulphate content.
         - Magnesium is essential to the action of over 300 enzymes in your body

         - Magnesium is essential to your liver.
        - Magnesium helps calcium enter the bones and cells
        - Magnesium also drives pumps in the membrane of your cells. This pump pushes potassium into cells, and your power stations (mitochondria), and kicks sodium out. Were the reverse to happen you would end up with acid cells, lowered energy and lowered oxygen levels.
        - Magnesium is also essential inside your cellular energy production powerhouses.
        - Magnesium prevents blood clots and hardening of the arteries, even reducing strokes and lowering blood pressure.
        - Magnesium aids the effectiveness of insulin.


         - Sulphate is an essential ingredient in certain proteins.

         - Sulphate plays a vital role in brain tissue formation.

        - Sulphate can also help detox the body of certain environmental chemicals and drugs.
Research in 2009 showed 40 per cent of people in America (and probably Britain too) are deficient in magnesium. According to the  American College of Nutrition two thirds of adults are consuming less than the daily RDA.
Magnesium is found in whole foods from seeds and nuts to greens and grains. The core of the chlorophyll molecule is magnesium just the core of the haemoglobin molecule is iron. It is reduced in the body by alcohol, certain drugs and is less absorbable without a balance in the bacteria of the gut, and where there is excess stomach acid.
Sulphates (Sulfates) are hard to accumulate through diet alone but are readily absorbable through the skin!
Epsom salts are used medically to increase magnesium levels in the body, to treat eclampsia, severe barium poisoning, and to relieve constipation. There is some evidence that they can help treat asthma.
Drink Epsom salts or soak in them
You can bathe in Epsom Salts, or drink them (providing it is a pure enough grade). Epsom salts for the bath come usually in large chunks, whereas Epsom Salts for consumption are about the same size as sea salt. Epsom salts are a cheap traditional remedy. Just bathing in Epsom Salts will result in magnesium levels rising in your body.
    a) Consumption of Epsom Salts
Drinking Epsom Salts improves liver function, is a detox for the liver and relieves constipation. It acts as a laxative. (Sometimes too strongly and so only small doses should be used if using regularly). Be sure you buy a pure grade Epsom Salt, which clearly says it is for oral consumption. It also acts to reduce the fat levels in your liver.
    b) Bathing in Epsom Salts
This is known to aid release of toxins from the body, and ease stresses and strains, muscle cramps and muscle pain. Magnesium can reduce swelling. And bathing in Epsom Salts three times a week has its fans for both detoxification, lowering adrenaline production, blood pressure, improving sleep, improving concentration, and aiding nervous function. People report increased energy levels.
Health spas have also used Epsom Salts to aid asthma and other bronchial conditions, and migraine. Epsom salts can known to heal cuts and ulcers of the skin.
Some Spas use a handful of dry crystals as an ex-foliant, rubbing them in a gentle circular motion over the skin. This action may be combined with olive oil. Needless to say, you should wash this cocktail off afterwards!
Epsom salts and cancer
Epsom Salts are more correctly called Epsom Salt. General benefits such as cleansing the liver, reducing acidity in the cells and maximising energy production are all important in fighting cancer. There is some indication that the abilities of Epsom Salt to modulate insulin would aid glucose control and reduce inflammation in the body. Glucose is the favourite food of cancer cells and insulin causes inflammation throughout the body. 
Epsom salt, along with olive oil and the fruit juice of your choice is an essential ingredient in the William Kelley Liver Flush, which is popular with many complementary and integrative cancer practitioners as a way of detoxifying the liver. (Dr. Hulda Clark popularised it and called it the Liver Cleanse).

The liver is often heavily toxic (due to dead cancer cells, chemicals and drugs, lactic acid and fats and cholesterol can build up) in cancer patients and this can impair the whole immune system.
A fatty liver causes fat to build up in both the lymph system and in the blood. People with higher triglyceride levels in their blood survive least as they cause more metastases.
In 2016, two UK Professor (Roy Taylor and Mike Lean) reversed type-2 diabetes in Clinical Trials by using a vegetable juice diet to de-fat the liver, which in turn de-fatted the pancreas and got insulin production working again. The pancreas is an important organ in the fight against cancer.
The Liver Cleanse, or Liver Flush helps de-fat, detoxify and strengthen the liver. A clean healthy liver is vital in the fight against cancer.
