The Power of Epsom Salts
I've gotta say, the Epsom salt foot soak last night was wonderful! That drinking injury I mentioned before has hung around since the first of the year. Usually the inflammation goes away in a few days to a week, but this one seems to hang on - my foot is still a little tender. But, after a long soak last night during the second half win of the Cav's over the Heat, I woke up this morning with very little pain. My foot is about 95% - a far cry better than it's been yet this year. Pepper and I ran a leisurely 4.5 mi. yesterday on sidewalks and I was pissed that it's still nagging. So I tried the soak. It was wonderful - although, a hot tub would be nice too. But let's face it, when your living on the public dole, you can't afford such luxuries. I also put some fresh herbs in the mix too - rosemary, thyme and parsley.
