I had a question about Epsom salts
I had a question about Epsom salts. I’ve stumbled across it and my DS11 dx developmental trauma, attachment difficulties, anxiety & depression had his first Epsom salts bath last night and asked for the same again tonight. He’s recently been diagnosed with joint hyper mobility too and he said the bath really helped last night. My question is, can he have the same bath every night or should I limit his exposure to the salts? I’ve been using 1 cup per bath.
He has GI problems too and is on Movicol paediatric (1-2 sachets) long term. I’ve read the salts can be a laxative too. Is this going to be a problem?! And finally – Epsom flakes sound more effective but stronger – anyone use these with their kids? Or Magnesium oil?
Also, any advice on Magnesium Threonate or Magnesium Glycinate dosing. I’m very confused on what’s what but these two leap out in my research as being optimal for kids with anxiety & GI problems in a daily low dose, but what’s the difference in them and what’s best for my son? Can we supplement orally and use baths?
I take Vitamin D3 too by my Endocrinologist as I’ve been dx with low bone density due to low vitamin D bloods. No one has mentioned Magnesium to me as a supplement that could help my fatigue, joint pain and anxiety. I can see from pinned post that asking about D is contentious and I don’t want to unwittingly break any protocols so please ignore the advice for me if I’ve strayed into the wrong area. I can raise it with my consultant at our next appointment in April.
Thanks everyone in advance for your wisdom and assistance. X
