If you want to be prepared for a new flu season, then I have an amazing tip for you: How To Kick Colds Fast With A Detox Bath.
After several years of learning about natural remedies, a good detox bath is one of my favorite ways of kicking a cold fast. Taking a detox bath will help your kids relax, clean their systems of toxins, and absorb wonderful minerals that will strengthen their immune systems.
After a full day of activities, your kids are feeling miserable because of a cold. They are cracky, congested, irritable and just a mess. How To Kick Colds Fast With a Detox Bath is the perfect way to make your kids feel better and relaxed when they are sick. In my experience, it really helps.
My 5 year old son caught a cold a few weeks ago. The same day he started to show cold symptoms, I made sure to give him a detox bath. He slept for 12 hours straight afterwards! He woke up the following morning feeling much better. This is when I realized I had to write a post about detox baths.
Constant exposure to environmental toxins
Your kids are exposed to a lot of toxins from pollution, household cleaners, and processed foods that are full of chemicals and additives. A detox bath with magnesium has the power to eliminate those toxins. So it is also a good idea to just give your kids a detox bath once a week, even if they are not sick to keep their immune systems strong and free of toxins.
I try to take a detox bath once a week too. It is so relaxing and I feel completely rested and energized the following day. If you want to learn all about detox baths and why you should take them, please see this wonderful article HERE. It explains in depth all the wonderful benefits of taking a detox bath.
Studies have shown that magnesium and sulfate are both readily absorbed through the skin, making Epsom salt baths an easy and ideal way to enjoy the associated health benefits. Magnesium plays a number of roles in the body including regulating the activity of over 325 enzymes, reducing inflammation, helping muscle and nerve function, and helping to prevent artery hardening. Sulfates help improve the absorption of nutrients, flush toxins, and help ease migraine headaches (source).
How To Kick Colds Fast With A Detox Bath
Adults: use 1 cup of salts and 4 tablespoons of baking soda.
Optional: You can use a few drops of essential oils. I like Eucalyptus Essential Oil for detox baths (not recommended for small children). For small kids you can use Lemon Essential Oil , great for supporting a healthy immune system, or Lavender Essential Oil which has a nice calming effect.
It is important to use KidSafe essential oils and dilute according to instructions. For more information, please check out safe essential oils for children. There is a fantastic variety of safe oils for children above the age of 2.
Fill the bathtub half way with warm water. Place the salts and baking soda, and stir with your hand to dissolve. Take a bath for at least 15-20 minutes. The body will extract the toxins first, and then start to absorb the minerals. To distract kids, you can play with toys or read a book. Make sure they do not drink the water. Magnesium has a laxative effect.
Rinse well afterwards and towel dry. The detox bath is now complete. Have some drinking water available. A detox bath can make you very thirsty. Magnesium also promotes sleep so you or your kids will soon be ready for bed.
Now you know How To Kick Colds Fast With A Detox Bath. At the first sign of a cold, give your kids this bath and see for yourself the wonderful results.

Take the quiz above and see if you got the correct answer!
In April, 2009, researchers stunned the medical community when they reported chronic inflammation as the root cause of several major diseases.
See, every year 610,000 people in the U.S. die of heart disease. Cancer claims another 584,000...stroke 130,000...Alzheimer's disease nearly 85,000 — and the list goes on.
Truth is, we now know... chronic inflammation is responsible for 7 out of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States! Hundreds of studies and scientific reviews prove it.
Fortunately, newer research shows you can prevent-even reverse-most major diseases by "turning off" inflammation. And in our new book, we show you how to do just that.

5) Turmeric is amazing. The problem is - It's hard to absorb!
6) Wonder why your stomach still sticks out even though you're hammering the core exercises every day? It's a common myth that bulging belly is due to weak abdominal muscles.
7) Even if you're the most active of athletes, you may still suffer from tight hip flexors due to the amount of time you spend each day planted to a chair.
Enjoy! Let me know how these work out for you. And if you run across anything I've missed please let me know.
