Epsom salt yeast infections: One of the easiest and safest preparations I first made for cleaning out my own system is using epsom salt. Many people are familiar with it and it's readily available in just about any food store.
Yes, the reason it helps is by flushing toxins and heavy metals out of the body. Epsom Salts are made of magnesium and sulfates, which are essential minerals our body needs to maintain good health. They work by softening stool by increasing water in your intestines.
They are used internally as a saline laxative or externally as a soaking solution.
If you haven't already visited the home remedies for yeast infections page, do so now to become more familiar with the process and get instructions on the proper steps to take when using the salts for a Candida albicans cleanse. Here's a shortened example of the morning cleanse.
If you are experiencing chronic constipation, epsom salts can really help. After you take your first dose of the salts, you may have a bowel movement right away, or it could take up until the next morning. Once a bowel movement happens, it will come quickly and may be very soft and liquid looking. You may even find green colored gallstones. It also may take longer than normal to empty your bowels so be sure to give yourself ample time to use the restroom. A good recommendation would be to use the salts on the weekend or when you are not working. Many people will only need to use the epsom salt flush for only 3 days to clean their system
Ask your naturopathic doctor if you have prevailing kidney issues or are on a magnesium restricted diet. Epsom salt is not recommended for children under the age of 6. Do not take more epsom salt than necessary.
