How to Get Rid of Post-gym Pain in 10 Minutes

While many of us struggle to find a cure for the constant barrage of stress and pain that life assaults us with, Dr. Tracy Ye and her nature medicine team keep exploring the answers. Here is the type of super easy DIY that you can do everyday after going to the gym or after a stressful day.  
First of all, here is Dr Tracy Ye's prescription for your muscle sore and joints pain:

Magnesium Salt Bath : one pound/or one cup Epsom Salt (another name: Magnesium Salt) in one standard bath tub. Add 3 or 5 drops lavender essential oil into it. Soak your mind and body into the warm aroma water for 10-15 minutes. Sing a song while you are relaxing!  

Here's the more scientific explanation:  

Magnesium salt is not often something thought of by many as a “go-to” ailment for pain, though, as suggested by new research, it may be of some use to try. Magnesium, in its purest form, is a chemical element known by its shorter name “Mg” and by the atomic number 12, used in chemistry. However, when mixed sulfate and oxygen, it finds itself a new form, one the scientific community calls MgSO4. This compound, while it may seem intimidating, actually carries quite a few medical benefits. When absorbed through the skin, magnesium sulfate has a soothing affect, often relaxing tense muscles, placating headaches, and overall reducing inflammation in the body.
Some argue that many of us today are actually deficient in magnesium, and that many of our daily habits contribute to our deficiency. Things like alcohol, sugary drinks, and processed foods, some believe, have a depreciating effect on our magnesium levels. Exercise, although generally a healthy habit, actually depletes the body of magnesium through the process of sweating. So it is important, even if one lives a relatively healthy lifestyle, to ensure that one’s levels of magnesium are substancial.
