I just read that both forms of magnesium are required by the body, and that the chloride is used for detoxing.

Yeah, your first link, is all over the place. One guy.  But I like the pubmed link

I like your idea.. a lot cheaper.. I remember my mother telling me that after soaking in epsom salts, you have to shower because it would cause itching. So it seems to do the same thing to the skin as the chloride.

contains aluminum

I realize they're talking about injection of magnesium sulphate but being used transdermally, it's absorbed into
the body just the same.

I don't itch after using the epsom salts and baking soda.  I do not wash it off.  After a bath in this, I sleep much better.

Cool!  I buy the big box of epsom salts from Costco. They also have a ginormous bag of baking soda in the spice isle.

Epsom Salt, I love you. I wish I had met you sooner. You are so wonderful at easing my Fibromyalgia symptoms after I clean my house like a madwoman.


Thanks Kim.. I have a BJ's membership.. I'll have to see if they have epsom salts there in bulk..

I hope soaking in them helps you.  At the end of the day, my muscles are so tight that it is very difficult to even get to the place where I can relax and go to sleep.  I try to do this detox bath three times a week.  In the winter time, I do it more often because I am always cold.  It really helps the pain level and relaxes me enough so that I can at least go to sleep.  Staying asleep is another issue.

I found some D3 5000 IU in a "under the tongue" tablets (sorry I can't remember the correct term and I have Otto laying on my lap and I don't want to move him to look at the bottle). It will be easy to to double the dose, if I so choose.


Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.

Mayflowers,

I know it is as easy as pie, I tried to quote the part of the post I wanted to quote but sometimes "little things" such as making a quote which almost everyone on this board knows how to do (and I couldn't even find it in help or search    (big sigh)

Anyway, I know this whole thread is about Vitamin D levels and such.  I've been currently taking 5,000 mg a day and may up it.  I do want to know what my level is and as you said it takes some time to find out.  

I wanted to comment though on your mentioning that "dry brushing caused a rash.  When dry brushing was first mentioned it certainly worked for alot of people here.  I got the recommended brush and perhaps I was brushing a tad too much.  But I did develop an itching patch on my left ankle.  Actually that's the same ankle/calf I've been dealing with for the last six months.  I'm not saying that it caused anything I just wanted to comment.

Joy, did you see the link that someone posted regarding a home test to check for Vit D levels? It's $65, but may be worth it if you don't have health insurance (I don't).

Drea,

Yes, I did see that about the home test.  I have insurance but I don't know for how long.

I may invest in that.  Thanks.

I also recommend the shiatsu massage pillow or chair pad that Sharper Image makes. All my stress usually goes into my back or shoulders and when I strained my back, I bought the pillow.. about $49 at Macy's because they didn't have any chair pads and immediately I fell the stress and knots in my back losening up and after a week using it 15 mins before bedtime.. it feels so good.. and it relaxes me, my back is all better now    It has vibration, massage, heat .  I'm going to get the chair pad when it goes on sale. This is better than getting a massage because at least you get the same massage every time.

I have herniated discs up and down my entire spine.  I am not sure that the shiatsu won't aggravate that.  I will watch for the sales on that.

Hi Joy,  
That's a great name..  Just click on "Quote" above the post you want to quote and type underneath the quoted message ...after you see the [/quote] then you can type underneath.
As far as vitamin D, I go to my doctor's office and they draw the blood there and I get the results in 7 days. Not too bad. Drea doesn't have health insurance so she's thinking of spending a lot to have a test mailed out. I don't know how accurate they are but .. it's an option.

Yeah, the dry brushing. A lot of members here do it. I did it for about a month and I started breaking out in a rash from it.. I didn't think I was brushing too hard, but in the GenoType Diet book Dr. D recommends it for Nomads specifically...If I remember correctly. So, I think other blood types can be too sensitive for it, but Lola swears by it and she's an O. I seem to do best with a body scrub in the shower but the body brushing is supposed to make the lymphatic system healthy.. perhaps if we don't brush too hard and really clean the brush..maybe it would work for A's.

One way to do it is to try one of those chairs at Brookstone in the malls. You can sit in it and try it for free.  Funny, one time I sat in the chair pad but I felt awkward because it was in the store and my back hurt a little the next day.. It might have been because I tensed up feeling like everyone was watching me.. But having the pillow at home, it was like getting a massage and I can move the pillow up or down to fit the areas.. maybe that's why..

Chloe had a massage cane that she bought to do a self massage, which gave me an idea but I wanted to not have to use my arms, that's why I decided to get the pillow so I can just relax  and sit in bed and turn it on..

This is the one I have.

Sharper Imagine still exists?   Didn't they close all their retail stores?  Don't see them in malls
anymore.  I have a really old Sharper Imagine massage chair.....Like the pillow but it's a chair
and the massaging mechanism goes up and down your back.  It vibrates but doesn't have heat.

Oh, I have a theracane....which is really cool if you can't carry your great big chair around...

Well, I certainly want to thank you "MF".  

I really would like to know my Vit. D levels.  I'm not sure how I'm going to accomplish that at this time because at present I will be having gum surgery in about two weeks and I also found out I need a root canal.  Thank God I also have dental insurance at this time.

I do believe that dry brushing is good for a lot of people.  I also feel that my skin is very sensitive may be because of being an A blood type.  Not sure about that.  But the brushing didn't work for me.  I understand that rebounding is good for the lymph system.  I've been sporatic in using it and when I did a few days ago I broke a spring.  Boing!!!  Need a new one that folds up.  There's never enough storage space in my opinion.

I read that you have one of those shiatsu pillows and will consider getting a chair.  Every time I go into the local Bed, Bath, and Beyond I sit for a few minutes in their demo massage chairs.
The only consideration with the chair is, for me at least, there doesn't seem to be enough padding between the person and the mechanism.  But, after a few minutes I do feel my back relax a little.

We all have to figure out what works best for us it seems.
