U don’t have to soak your whole body in the epson u can soak your feet and your body will still get the magnesium absorbed in. If u have diabetes u may not be able to use epson if not then go for it. Have u read the article on this website The Magic of Magnesium? Magnesium heals! It’s essential for EDS. I take it orally also. If u don’t mind me asking y the open abdominal wound? Also, don’t think like that that u will end up in a wheelchair or your mind will put u there. There’s hope! I know u don’t feel that way right now but u will especially when u get in that pool. We moved from California to Texas because we couldn’t afford to live in California without me working but we got a house with a pool and it’s helping me. I make myself get in it every day even if I don’t feel like it and I always feel better after. I can stretch and loosen my stiff body in the water.don’t give up in your mind or your body will too. God bless you!
I will try the foot soak. I have not read the article yet, but I will. I use Epsom salts on my roses and palms because the magnesium is good for them. I love to garden and it is becoming so hard for me to do.
When I started to have severe mobility issues 7 1/2 years ago I was told by my orthopedic at that time to move. We were in a two story and I could not handle the stairs. He told me to find a one story with a pool. I have always been a swimmer so I am thankful we found a house, and in our same neighborhood too. I can’t wait until I am healed and can swim again!
I recently had hernia repair surgery. The incision open up on me. It is actually the second time an abdominal incision opened on me. I did not realize until last month that it was because of my EDS. I am new to EDS, but I have been sick for a long time. Now it all makes sense.
