    this has been said about a million times here but i'll say it again, there are always newcomers. i find wonderful relief in soaking in a hot mineral bath, but not just any minerals. i like the dead sea mineral salts. they are the best, they help better than any other kind. cindi

    I find soaking in a moor mud bath very relaxing and helps with the achy muscles. Sometimes it relaxes me so much I can sleep right away and for longer.

    It is also excellent for skin and helps with my itching skin.

    I've heard before that the dead sea minerals are great. At this point in my FM, I have a difficult time getting in and out of the tub to soak my body so I rely heavily on my warm showers to get me going, but do you think it might help some to do foot soaks? I have a lot of thigh and leg pain. Jackie

    yes, foot soaks would be helpful. they sure make your feet feel good. add a little peppermint oil to it and it will make your feet feel really refreshed. i have have trouble getting out of the tub but this feels so good i go through the annoyance anyway. cindi

    Here is the sea salts that I use and the mud; 'Ahava' Dead Sea Salts, its 100% pure Dead Sea bath salts from Israel, it is a bit pricy, $40.00 for 6.6pounds. You use one cup in a bath and soak for 20 minutes, then shower the residue off.

    Also the 'Ahava' Black Mineral Mud from the Dead Sea in Israel, this you put all over the body, expose the body to the sun, or heat lamp for 15-20 minutes, then shower it off.
    I don't have the price on my package, but its also pricy :)

    Its also good for conditioning the hair, and a facial.

    Hope this helps.......................

    Shalom, Shirl

    Hello Cindi,

    i get mine from walmart, they aren't pure dead sea salts but have them included and the brand i got smells so pretty! i love them. there's also bath therapy, i think they have them in there, too. and you can always go to the health food store and get pure dead sea mineral salts. how they work better, i'm not sure, but for me they do. cindi

    Moor mud is mud from bogs, purified and used for many things. They discovered a body from eons ago that had been in a bog "i think in Ireland or Scotland, not sure" The body was preserved so that you could still see its face. The preserving components of mud are supposed to be excellent as in skin. I also find it relieves itching. Also it detoxifies plus many other things which I fail to remember without digging out info. I think its called Golden Moor. I know there are websites about it.
