I’m really intrigued about your natural toenail fungus soak–it’d be not only good for my feet but also just to sit still every day–could have a beer too!
Anyway, I’m pretty healthy and strong except I have muscle tension. I'm a feldenkrais teacher and so do some feldenkrais every day. I’ve always been strong and active. I’ve been a mountain climber, dog musher, now I ride horses, today I rode 7 horses (about 10 hours), I’m tired but I feel good. Except for the tight muscles which have plagued me for years. I’m wondering about cell salts. Also about magnesium which I’ve taken before but I’m not good at taking supplements–it’s hard enough to eat lots of fruits and veggies and cook once in a while… and sometimes when I get on a supplement kick I'll take them for a while and one day I’ll look at them and think yuk–it’s like they turn my stomach.
The only other complaints I have really are sinus problems (I live in central OR in the junipers–also I’m ordering a neti pot) and the 2 fungusy toenails, which brought me to your website. About 5 years ago I started getting the fungus, didn’t realize it was anything more than reg toenail abuse until maybe 2 years ago. It’s not bad but I need to get rid of it before it invades the whole nail.
Any suggestions for the muscle tension?
There are many causes of muscle tension. Some commonly approached ways to tackle muscle tension:
- Consider electrolyte deficiency – that is very common especially in
hot weather and athletes. Electrolyte mixes, like the Emergen’C packets,
are easy to use.
the bioplasma cell salts are great also. A professor told me to have people add about 40 pellets to 1 liter of water and drink throughout the day – dont chug it – drink it through the day – it is the repeated doses that are most effective with cell salts.
- Peat baths – consider a peat bath after workouts – effective for relieving muscle tension and ridding the muscles of metabolic waste (which can cause muscle tension).
- Epsom salt baths are a great way to relieve muscle soreness as well as potentially increase your magnesium. I am not sure if epsom salt baths actually increase blood levels of magnesium but some say they do.
- Water water water – filtered only – or in maybe your case – well water is likely great also
There may be an underlying medical condition causing muscle fatigue and muscle tightness. It is best to seek the advice of a licensed naturopathic physician.
