I went to the store today to get the Epsom Salts but all they have is not for internal use, external only! Where do I find one you can take internally or is this the one people are using? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
You should be able to safely ignore not for internal consumption warning. There is no seperate type of Epsom Salt for internal use vs external use. It is all Epsom Salt derived the same way. I have not heard or read anyone dieing from internally consuming Epsom Salts . After using Epsom Salts for three liver flushes, I am still alive and kicking as are many flushers who have taken the recommened amount of epsom salts in water over the course of as many as 20+ flushes. Hey, Epsom salts can facilitate healthier growth in plants, so they cannot be all that bad.
The statement you made about the plants is incorrect. Just because it is a good substance to use on plants had no bearing on it's application to humans. Plants thrive in chemicals that are extremely toxic to humans(why would we all be working so hard to be organic). There are fertilizers out there that if applied to skin will cause a caustic burn. Not trying to be hateful, but some people read these threads as fact.
You make a good point and that makes sense. However, I am unaware of any case where Epsom Salts have inflicted damage on a human being. There are people that have successfully completed as many as 80+ flushes using Epsom Salts as per of the Liver Flush Protocol. You say that just because something is beneficial for plants does not mean that it is not toxic for humans. Yes, you are right. But this does not appear the case for Epsom Salts. Epsom salts that appear to be beneficial for plants have not been found to be harmful to humans. Not trying to be hateful, but pointing out an established fact.
If it says usp or 99.5% pure or greater it is what you are looking for. It is generally not recommended for internal use for the particular marketing plan of the company or for liability purposes. Usp is free of contaminants. Most Epsom Salt is manufactured by one of several companies and distributed to those who may package it for differing uses.
As this is a health conscious site it is normal to promote the use of substances that are as pure as possible.
The Epsom Salts you are looking for should be 100% pure. If you live in the States or the UK you shouldn't have any problems getting it. It should clearly state that it is 100% pure Magnesium Sulphate ( Epsom Salts ), that it is for internal use, a laxative or something similar.
Note: there is a spelling difference and sulphate can be spelt with "ph" or "f".
Something like this:
The contaminants that you find in less that 100% pure Epsom salts include arsenic and iron.
