will have to try and pick up the pace once we move. I've always been a "pusher" I'd push my way thru most any 'storm' even though i new some form of pain would be waiting for me later. I always got thru. ~ Now ~ i'm afraid i've pushed myself to far.
I was aware that my mom always had it on hand growing up
re-call Jamie telling meonceto buy some and soak
but i thought...
"what does heknow about a nice hot bath?"
More than i thought...
I came across a link to this info
thru one of my blog reads.
"Magnesium is the second-most abundant element
in human cells
and the fourth-most important positively charged ion in the body, so it's little wonder this low-profile mineral is so vital to good health and well being.
Magnesium, a major component of Epsom Salt,
also helps to regulate the activity of more than 325
enzymes and performs a vital role in orchestrating
many bodily functions,
from muscle control and electrical impulses
to energy production and the elimination of harmful toxins.
The National Academy of Sciences, however, reports that most Americans are
helping to account for our society's high rate of
heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, arthritis
joint pain, digestive maladies
stress-related illnesses, chronic fatigue
a host of other ailments.
the average Americanmalegets just
of the magnesium required for good health,
of their recommended levels.
Nutritionists say Americans' magnesium levels
have dropped more than
in the past century.
Better health through soaking
Magnesium can be ingested as a nutritional supplement,
but studies show that a wide variety of factors -
the presence of specific foods or drugs,
certain medical conditions,
even the individual chemistry of a person's stomach acid
- can interfere with their effectiveness.
But all of the subjects in a recent study experienced increased magnesium levels from soaking in a bath enriched with magnesium sulfate crystals,
commonly known as Epsom Salt.
Researchers and physicians report that raising your magnesium levels may:
Improve heart and circulatory health, reducing irregular heartbeats, preventing hardening of the arteries, reducing blood clots and lowering blood pressure.
Improve the body's ability to use insulin, reducing the incidence or severity of diabetes.
Flush toxins and heavy metals from the cells, easing muscle pain and helping the body to eliminate harmful substances.
Improve nerve function by regulating electrolytes. Also, calcium is the main conductor for electrical current in the body, and magnesium is necessary to maintain proper calcium levels in the blood.
Relieve stress. Excess adrenaline and stress are believed to drain magnesium, a natural stress reliever, from the body. Magnesium is necessary for the body to bind adequate amounts of serotonin, a mood-elevating chemical within the brain that creates a feeling of well being and relaxation.
While increasing your magnesium levels,
Epsom Salt also delivers sulfates,
which are extremely difficult to get through food
which readily absorb through the skin.
Sulfates serve a wide variety of functions in the body,
playing a vital role in the formation of brain tissue,
joint proteins and the mucin proteins that line the walls of the digestive tract.
Sulfates also stimulate the pancreas to generate digestive enzymes and are believed to help detoxify the body's residue of medicines and environmental contaminants."
I am NOT looking forward to packing everything up and hauling
it to a new place;
this is what
i won't complain
2 much hehe...
Jamie ~ his main concern is storage
for his bike
( he has both here)
I know he hates the idea of moving
i feel guilty
for feeling the need to move.
We ended up here
(it's been 4 yrs now)
under shitty circumstances
due to a
She did get what was
It took 2 years, and a whopping double fine from the judge
for them to pay up... 2 yrs was well worth the look on their faces.
The 7-8 months we lived there
was a total nightmare.
Jamie put more work into that place; always running to the basement
to fix the
(in this so-called newly renovated apartment)
NOT to mention...
he had taken apart the underside of the staircase
(of this 150+ yr old farmhouse) free of charge
to accommodate our washer & dryer
(something she will benefit from down the road)
because there was only enough room for one...
you would never have guessed this was done; he did a beautiful job.
