Thank you to thedomesticdiva for sharing the great information on magnesium.
Most people are deficient and without it we suffer physically.
My massage therapist gave me an article from the Epsom Salts Council that explains that the best way for people to absorb magnesium is to soak in an epsom salt bath. Since I using epsom salts or Dead Sea Salts in every bath I have noticed a big difference in how I feel and cope from day to day. I really notice it when I don't have my mineral water bath!
We have soft water, I recently learned that soft water drains the body of minerals due to osmosis and is the wrong polarity from Dr. Zoltan Rona's book Natural Alternatives To Vaccination.
