The holidays can bring on a deep down ache in your bones, can’t they?
Before you reach for a bottle of pills or alcohol, think of simple and wholesome ways to relieve that deep down tired feeling.
The woman of the house is the most prone to suffer post holiday fatigue. Please, if you don’t need a bit of nurturing today, then find someone near and dear to you who does, and make sure she takes care of herself.
Ten years ago, when I first began my struggle with auto immune disease, I was forever looking for pain relief that was natural and wouldn’t knock me out.
I was taking a class on the weekends with a group of women from my daughters’ school. The subject of pain relief came up and one of the ladies suggested I try a hot bath with plenty of Epsom Salt.
It seemed a bit too simplistic to possibly help with the extreme pain that I had been coping with, but hey, I would have tried anything at that point.
You would not believe the amount of pain that you can soak away in 20 minutes!
You need to use 2 full cups of Epsom Salts, or any type of bath salts really. It’s an extra special treat to add essential oils to the mix.
Light a candle or your favorite incense. Turn on some soft music. Soak away pain and worries for 20 minutes.
You will lower your pain level significantly without taking a drug that is hard on your liver and will contribute to heart failure.
So go soak your head! It really is great advice!
Water therapy is truly amazing, simple and effective.
Keep your head under the water for as much of the 20 minute soak as you can possibly handle. That is how you get the biggest benefit.
My family knows how I feel about a good soak in the tub and got me the perfect gift this year.
Look for Dr. Teal’s Lavender Epsom Salt Soaking Solution and Therapeutic Bath & Body at a store near you. I’m telling you, it is heaven in a tub!
When you lower your pain level, you can get a much more restful sleep. The quality of your sleep has everything to do with your fatigue level.
Never underestimate the power of sleep. It is pure healing magic!
Happy soaking and sweet dreams!
Hope your Christmas was cozy and happy, and that you bring in the New Year surrounded by those you love.
