Half a teaspoonful of Epsom salts in orange juice every morning has helped many epileptic sufferers greatly reduce seizures.

Dr. John Thorp of the University of North Carolina reports that giving an infusion of Epsom salts when women go into premature labor has cut in half the rate of babies born with cerebral palsy.

People with sciatic pain have found relief by preparing a bath with two cups of Epsom salts added to the water. Shower as you would normally do after the bath. It is recommended that you place a pinch of the salts in a glass of the water and drink it in addition to taking the bath.

Please consult your doctor if you have any health concerns, or on any medication.
