(NaturalNews) There are almost as many ways to detox heavy metals, pesticides and other noxious chemicals from your body as there are poisons themselves. You can take what I call "the nuclear approach" and use chelation for an intense, fast, efficient detoxing if your system can handle it. Or you can go the gentle route using milder clearing agents made from superfoods, common household products and clay. These are just as efficient at removing a wide range of toxins; but, more gently and slowly, allowing your system to adjust day by day to changes it experiences. Read about gentle detoxing here: http://www.naturalnews.com/036920_superfoods_detox_chemtrails.html

Whatever type of internal detox you choose, allowing time for that special soak in the tub several times a week will help soak out the unwanted chemicals and poisons, cleaning your skin and tissues and encouraging increased oxygen and blood flow to your entire body. A detox bath helps strengthen the immune system and soothe your soul as you let go of your cares during bath time. The best mixture for detoxing is one you make yourself, where you control the ingredients and their quality. There are lots of suggestions for detox bath salts, this is by far not the only recipe. However, this one works, plain and simple. (And it will not turn you into a zombie.)

Detox bath mixture

Add one cup of sea salt to a mixing bowl. There are all types of natural sea salts ranging from Celtic salts to beautiful pink Himalayan salt crystals. It's your choice or mix several to experience the beneficial effects from the mineral combination.

Add one cup of Epsom salt and two cups of aluminum-free baking soda to the bowl and stir

Mix in two to three teaspoons of glycerin and several drops of your favorite essential oil to scent the mixture. Lavender, rose, sandalwood, mandarin orange and bergamot are popular.

Stir the mixture until it's well blended and store in a sealed and labeled glass jar. Make it decorative by adding a small amount of natural food coloring, and you can leave it on your bathroom counter for display.

Spa day

Fill the tub with comfortably warm water -- not too hot because it can dry your skin and make you feel tired. Add 1/4 cup of your special detox bath mixture. Add a cup of organic apple cider vinegar, especially if you have sore muscles.

Soak in the tub for no more than 10 minutes at first until you get used to the effect that the detox has on your system. Increase your bath time slowly. Take as many baths as you like; however, it's best to start out with no more than twice a week until you're used to it.

Warning

Avoid taking hot baths with detoxing agents if you suffer from diabetes, hypertension or heart disease. Consult your healthcare practitioner before doing any form of detox.
