Epsom Salt – Special health benefit for floater – Magnesium

Magnesium is an important mineral that must be in the body, as you can die without it.

It is a good weapon against illness, however, many Americans are deficient in magnesium and have no idea that they are. 

The Power of Magnesium and What It Can Do For You

 Magnesium is great for stress relief and helps to improve sleep. Its very weird that it’s widely used in conventional medicine but people never stop to contemplate how important it is to our health and its benefit to body function.

I used intravenous magnesium in the ER as it was helpful in life-threatening issues such as arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat), intravenous magnesium was used. If a patient felt constipated or needed to be ready for a colonoscopy, milk of magnesia or liquid magnesium citrate, which helps to clean out the bowels.

Pregnant women in pre-labor, or coming in with high blood pressure, even with seizures, were given high levels of magnesium consistently. You actually do not need to go to a hospital to feel the effects of magnesium. Taking magnesium supplements each day will show you results.

The Relaxation Mineral

 Magnesium is a relaxant. If any part of your body feels irritable, tight, stiff, and cramped—is a sign of a deficiency in magnesium.

This relaxing mineral is responsible for over 300 enzyme reactions and found in all body tissue. It’s mostly found within your brain, bones, and muscles. In order for cells to take in energy, they must have magnesium as it helps for many chemicals to work, and stabilize membranes in order to relax stiff muscles.

 Magnesium comes mostly from nuts, seaweed, greens, and beans. Mostly, Americans gain their daily consumption of nuts through peanut butter. With magnesium found in little foods, it expands the list of health effects from a deficiency in the mineral. Because it isn’t some pharmaceutical drug, it becomes widely ignored by people even though it is extremely useful.

That’s exactly the reason why hospitals utilize magnesium for emergencies and life-threatening problems such as heart failure and seizures.

 You are considered deficient in magnesium if you have any of these symptoms: 
  • Autism
  • Sensitivity to loud noises
  • Insomnia
  • Muscle twitches or cramps
  • Anxiety
  • ADD
  • Anal spasms
  • Angina
  • Palpitations
  • Constipation
  • Headaches
  •  Migraines
  •  Fibromyalgia
  •  Chronic fatigue
  •  Asthma
  •  Kidney stones
  •  Diabetes
  •  Obesity
  •  Osteoporosis
  •  High blood pressure
  •  PMS
  •  Menstrual cramps
  •  Irritable bladder
  •  Irritable bowel syndrome
  •  Reflux
  •  Trouble swallowing
Having a deficiency in magnesium is linked to body inflammation and high CRP levels. In todays society, magnesium deficiency is a massive issue. 65 percent of those admitted to intensive care, and about 15 percent of the country have a magnesium deficiency.
Many are deficient in this mineral because no one eats magnesium-rich foods within their diet. Many choose to eat processed, refined foods that is made primarily of meat, white flour, and dairy. You lose magnesium when you drink coffee, soda and alcohol. Constantly sweating can do so, as well as, consistent stress, excessive menstruation, diuretics, intestinal parasites, antibiotics, and some drugs. In Kosovo, a study was conducted to test people under war stress, and they found that they lost magnesium through urine.

It makes things complicated as magnesium is not absorbed well and is lost from our bodies so easily. In order to take in magnesium, you will need lots of it, with vitamin B6, selenium and vitamin D.

Recently, a scientific review on magnesium found that,“It is highly regrettable that the deficiency of such an inexpensive, low-toxicity nutrient results in diseases that cause incalculable suffering and expense throughout the world.”

Magnesium deficiency is very easy to fix, but hard to measure and study. If you do have any of the symptoms above that I mentioned or have a disease I added, then no worries! Here’s how you can reverse the deficiency.

Stop Draining Your Body of Magnesium

• Limit coffee, colas, salt, sugar, and alcohol

Had a nice and friendly staff member help us out! A great first experience and I hope to be back soon! Unfortunately the power went out towards the end but that is beyond their control as blackouts occur quite frequently in Vietnam

Great experience! It was my first time there and the staff member/ owner took his time to explain to us the benefits and walked us through the process. Unfortunately there was a power trip towards the end of my session, but the staff member/ owner were witty calm about it and brought it a huge speaker to wake us up (just in case we hadn’t got up).

This is an absolutley amazing find in Hanoi. I always tell people that floating is the perfect practice if your looking to improve your health, inner peace, and general wellbeing - and that is certainly the case at 'float Hanoi' as well! I have been floating regularly for a few years in the US, and I can say that the tanks and facilities here are truly top of the line. Also Minh, one of the owners, was incredibly welcoming and helpful - he even took me to find an ATM machine after my float so i could pay him! Then followed by showing me a gas station so I could fill up my motorbike (Ive only been here two days). 🙂 Float Hanoi exemplifies what selfless service is all about - I feel at home in Hanoi already just from my first experience here (Of course im also relaxed and rejuvinated from the float itself). I bought a package of 5 "one hour" floats, and when those are up, I will be buying a package of 5 "ninety minute" floats. All that said, just do yourself a big favor and give this place a real shot! You wont be at all dossapointed. ????

The last time I floated was back in Bangkok in 2019. My husband and I were regulars at the facility there. The Hanoi float center feels much more “homemade” than the one in Bangkok. Not saying that neither is better than the other; the setting feels very different, which is something to keep in mind. Otherwise, the tanks work the same - the only difference would be that you have the option to pry the tank’s cover open slightly with the ones in BKK but here, it’s either fully close or open, which can be uncomfortable for first-time floaters. Also, if you haven’t meditated for a long time, it can be pretty challenging during the first few sessions as your mind WILL keep wandering. We did the couple floating session for 60 minutes, and we didn’t regret giving it a try. It was nice, dark, and quiet (something you don’t get much from living in Hanoi). The staff understands and speaks English very well. The online reservation was hassle free, and the team will contact you a day before by phone to reconfirm. Note that they are not really responsive on Facebook messenger, so it’s better to call. It’s a straight forward experience, you go in, pay, rinse a bit, float, get out, rinse again, dress up and leave. Nothing to complain about and would personally return.

Quietest place in HCMC*. I've been floating for over four years and was so happy to find this place in Vietnam. The set up is very professional and sanitary. Owners are knowledgeable and extremely helpful. The prices do seem a bit high and geared towards tourists. I'll will return, but not as frequently as I'd like. *I would not suggest you float if there's going to be rain. During my float it started to pour and the noise was to the point you can not tune it out. I had to cut my float short as a result. No offer of offset cost or float time in the future, disappointing.

• Learn how to practice active relaxation

• Check with your doctor if your medication is causing magnesium loss (many high blood pressure drugs or diuretics cause loss of magnesium)

Eat Foods High in Magnesium

Include the following in your diet as often as you can:
Almonds, wheat bran, wheat germ, dates, kelp, cashews, buckwheat, barley, brazil nuts, dulse, filberts, garlic, walnuts, tofu, rye, soy beans, brown rice, figs, collard greens, avocado, shrimp, pecans, beans, parsley, dandelion greens, and millet.

Take Magnesium Supplements

 • The RDA (the minimum amount needed) for magnesium is about 300 mg a day. Most people consume less than 200 mg of the essential mineral.

• Some may need a higher dose depending on their health condition.

• Most individuals benefit off of 400 to 1,000 mg a day.

• The most easily absorbable forms are magnesium citrate, glycinate taurate, or aspartate, although magnesium bound to Kreb cycle chelates (malate, succinate, fumarate) are also good.

• Avoid magnesium carbonate, sulfate, gluconate, and oxide. They are poorly absorbed (and the cheapest and most common forms found in supplements).

• Most minerals are best when taken as a team with other minerals in a multi-mineral formula.

• Taking a hot bath with Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) is the best way to take in magnesium.
Side effects from excessive magnesium are diarrhea, which is easily avoidable if you switch to magnesium glycinate.
Those who have severe heart disease or kidney disease should consume magnesium daily under the direct supervision of their physician. If you have any of those above symptoms, consume magnesium for better health.
