Epsom Salts is Magnesium Sulfate, Baking Soda are either Potassium Bicarbonate or sodium bicarbonate (electrolyte sources)
When the body is shutting down from being too acid and fills with ammonia from worm die off and malnutrition has kicked in from worm load attached to your intestines blocking absorption. Food stops breaking down in the digestive system. Food will literally past in the feces with little affect that they had even been in your body. Some worms can even cause blockages in the small intestine or like myself intestinal Tapeworms and flukes lined the intestines.
This compromises the entire body. In a last ditch effort to stay alive, your body starts to leech from your bones the calcium and minerals to keep the cells alive in the body. Ph is a 5 and less, cells are barely functioning, weakness, exhaustion, aching joints and pain is happening because of the acidic environment caused by the lack of minerals. Ph below a 6 is an environment for disease to grow and multiply.
When your body does not have an appetite to eat, vomiting occurs when you try to eat. The basics become necessary.
I found taking vitamin E and Vitamin D very important and Mattk3, has been through it and recommends certain minerals to keep the body alive during this process. Minerals and vitamins will help the liver to dump toxins, kidney's to keep flushing. Manganese Sulfate, Arginase bladder, L-carnitine, MSM, Ester vitamin C, selenium 200 mcg, B-50, CQ10.*they have to be from precise manufactures because of quality.
These vitamins and minerals have made a difference to me. Mixing the powder of Epsom Salt and MSM in distilled water kept me functioning daily when I couldn't eat.
I had to be responsible for my life because I had no advocate. So I became my own advocate out of necessity, not by choice.
