Detox baths are a popular way to attempt to eliminate toxins and pollutants from your body, according to lymphologist and massage therapist Susana L. Belen in her book, "Detox and Revitalize: The Holistic Guide for Renewing Your Body, Mind, and Spirit." Baths that might help to detox your body generally contain ingredients such as Epsom or other mineral salts, herbs and sodium bicarbonate. HISTORY

Detox baths have been used throughout history as a way of purifying the body. According to naturopath Linda Page in her book, "Linda Page's Healthy Healing: A Guide to Self-Healing for Everyone," the ancient Romans and Greeks used detoxification baths to heal the body and remove impurities. Other cultures have used seaweed baths, mud and clay baths and steam baths to help remove toxins and promote overall physical and mental well-being.

FUNCTION
Detox baths use heat and steam, combined with various substances, such as seaweed, baking soda and salts, to detox your body and remove impurities. According to naturopath Timothy Brantley, hot baths using detoxifying ingredients such as Epsom salts or baking soda help to draw out impurities. Your body also eliminates these substances through sweating because of the high temperature of the steam or bath water. INGREDIENTS

Various detoxifying ingredients can be used as a bath soak. According to author Belen, you can use 2 cups of apple cider vinegar to help restore the pH level of your body.You can even use seaweed in a home detox bath. According to author Page, you can purchase dried seaweed in most natural and health food stores and add it to your bath. When your body starts to sweat, the minerals from the seaweed are transferred to the bath water, which are absorbed by your body through osmosis. Author Brantley suggests that mixing 1 cup of Epsom salts in a warm bath is a beneficial way to help draw out toxins through your pores. INSTRUCTIONS

According to Brantley, you should soak for at least 20 to 30 minutes in the bath, then immediately rinse your body off in the shower. Author Page suggests using a thermometer to ensure that your bath reaches the optimal temperature for detoxing. Start the bath at skin temperature, then raise the heat level to 100 degrees F after 15 minutes, then raise the temperature to 103 F. Page suggests that your body temperature will rise to match the temperature of the bath, helping to create a very slight yet healing fever. WARNING

The benefits of most detox baths are not backed up by scientific research, although the Epsom Salt Council states that the main ingredients in Epsom salt -- magnesium and sulfate -- can help to draw out toxins and impurities. Some natural healing practitioners even suggest that detox baths can aid weight loss, although no scientific evidence supports this claim. Inform your doctor before using detox baths, especially if you have a medical condition, have sensitive skin or allergies, or are taking medication. Liver & Kidney Detox Naturally Help
