LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Epsom Salts & Sea Salts

Dear Kristie,

What are these Epsom salts you spoke about in your BLOG? Can't I just use Sea Salts? - EH

Dear EH,

Epsom salts are not just "salts" - they are a natural substance that can extract toxins from your body. Scientifically Epsom salts are a magensium sulfate "salts" - most minerals can be made into salt! Regular salt that we eat is really just mostly sodium chloride. You would not want to eat Epsom salts, although there are some ways you can consume them safely "now and then" for health benefits.

Sea salt is also beneficial in therapy - although its effects are different from that of Epsom salts because sea salts are made up of many different minerals.

Sea salt contains about 84 different essential minerals - 83 which are actually EXTRACTED when regular table salt is made!

So think of this next time you use salt in your food - would you rather use regular table salt or sea salt?
