Every year Americans work an average of 1,800’s hours (based on statistics provided by OECD). This means that everyday an employed can faced stress, poor communication between employees and bosses, making difficult decisions, poor motivation, absence of team identity, and many more difficulties.
All this can be caused a lot of stress to our body health, especially if we have been working for decades. In a recent post: When a SPA is Needed; we explain the many benefits going to a SPA offer you as well as the services they offer.
Unfortunately not many can go to a SPA, they might not be near and spent all day relaxing and cleansing their body. Fortunately, you have another option a Detox Bath.
A Detox Bath
The detoxification of your body is something that occurs naturally, every day our body is removing and metabolizing dangerous compounds; this is something that just happens and we don’t even know it.
However, the capacity of our body to decontaminate is getting harder; this is because today our bodies are subject to more toxins than ever.
Today toxins can be found in the air we breathe, the food we eat, the medications we take, and in the water we drink.
When toxins are left unchecked these can cause many problems in our body, for example, harm, irritation, and destruction.
Fortunately, there is a solution to this, a detox bath. A detox bath is a healing therapy that can facilitate our body’s natural detoxification system. By taking a detox bath, we encourage our body to efficiently flush out toxins.
Using this ancient remedy is simple and something that we can perform in the comfort of our own home, through a detox bath, our body will better absorb minerals and nutrients that are in the water.
Health Benefits to a Detox Bath

If one is unable to get rid of your metabolic waste from toxins, this will build up in your body and make us sick.
Many of today’s modern diseases are related to the toxicity levels found in our body, our liver is in charge of removing toxins and metabolic waste, and taking a detox bath will help us, it enhances our body’s natural detoxification process, make us healthier and prevent illness.

How to take a Detox Bath
Prepare your Bath, Make time for yourself
Taking a shower daily is something that has been recommended by experts for years, however by doing so not only do we remove dead skin and foul odors, but also some essential oils and good bacteria.
For this reason, when taking a detox bath you need time, you will need to take a few minutes (20~30) soaks in a warm, relaxed environment to remove toxins that can be found in your body. The next 20~30 min will be used to re-mineralize your body, relax and enjoy.
These are the steps Sani Dental Group recommends you:
Fill the Bathtub with warm Water
Fill your bathtub with warm water, make sure it’s not too hot.
Add Relaxing and Cleansing Ingredients
Once the bathtub is filled it is time to add some ingredients, the ingredients that will help you relax and cleanse; these are some of the most common ingredients you can use during a detox bath:
Apple Cider Vinegar – if you suffer from arthritis, have gout, or any type of inflammation adding apple cider vinegar to your bath is recommended. This bath will make you sweat toxins out, get a good night's sleep (without lying awake with a wondering mind) and reduce the pain arthritis causes.
Baking Soda – baking soda is known for its cleaning ability, many of us have a box of baking soda in our fridge, and is used to foul odor our fridge can release. When using in a detox bath, we can use its natural anti-fungal properties and cleanse our skin, leaving it smooth and soft.
Bentonite Clay – heavy metals are present in numerous things that surround us the most common way to get heavy metals in our body, is by drinking water that hasn’t been properly filtered, some dental works, or by consuming foods that have been treated with certain chemicals.
The addition of bentonite clay in a detox bath will draw these metals out through its magnetism.
Epsom Salt – this ingredient is key to have around the house because Epsom salt offers us many uses when it comes to your health. Taking a regular Epsom salt bath is easy and can help with the circulatory system as well as improving nerve functions.
Essential Oils – we all have long days, sometimes too many long days; by customizing our detox bath with our favorite oils, we can relieve our body from stress, depression, and/or headaches.
Ginger – a powerful root that has plenty of healthy properties, whether you consume the root or use it in a detox bath. When using in a detox bath the body will sweat a lot more and get an extra amount of toxins out, and people who have used it and felt increased energy, cleaner, and kick-of the symptoms of the cold.
Hydrogen Peroxide – for this detox bath, you really need to relax and have plenty of time in your hands.
An oxygen detox bath involves the use of hydrogen peroxide as an antibacterial and antiviral; this is of great use especially for people who have been around a large group of people, whether you have traveled by bus, train, plane, or been in a crowded area; a hydrogen peroxide bath will clear your body of germs and toxins you could have been exposed to.
Sea Salt – this is one of the oldest detox baths out there and it has been used for decades and across the world. When adding Sea salt to the bathtub toxins will be pulled out of your body and leave you smooth skin, more energy, and feeling better throughout the day.
Seaweed – using seaweed during a bath, will create a bath experience like you probably have never had before. People who use seaweed in a detox bath claimed that they felt an increase in blood flow and in lymph fluids, something that isn’t achieved with other detox bath methods.
Time to Soak and Relax
You have blended all your favorite ingredients into the bathtub, you put some relaxing background music, confirm that the water temperature is warm and comforting, you get in and begin to soak.
Sani Dental Group recommends you aim for at least 20 of relaxation, but keep in mind that the longer the bath the better. You should start sweating within the first few minutes releasing your body of toxin and begin to re-absorb minerals, minerals that will offer you several health benefits.
Once out, do it Slowly and Carefully
Your body has been very relaxed that you might get lightheaded or weak, please when coming out of the tub be very careful also ingredients like salts and oils can make your tub slippery, please be careful when coming out of the detox bath.
Post-Bath body Care
Remember when we mention that every day our body is naturally removing and metabolizing dangerous compounds? Once metabolize you will flush out these toxins; this process involves a lot of water, for this reason, drink plenty of water to replenish fluid levels that have been lost.
