Salt Detox Bath Recipe

detox bath

¼ cup sea salt or Himalayan salt
¼ cup Epsom salt
¼ cup baking soda
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
favourite essential oils if desired (I use 10 drops of peppermint or lavender)

Salt Detox Bath Instructions

Dissolve salt, Epsom salt, and baking soda in boiling water in a quart size jar and set aside. Fill tub with warm/hot water and add apple cider vinegar. Pour salt mixture in and add essential oils if using.

Soak in bath for 30 minutes or as long as desired. Note that with any detox bath, you may feel tired or lightheaded when you get out. I don’t recommend doing this while home alone or before going somewhere in case you are tired or need help.

This bath is great for soothing skin irritation, boosting magnesium levels, and overall detoxing.

Studies show that losing weight is more achievable in a controlled supportive environment!

Have you tried to lose weight alone, and always end up on the weightloss roller coaster?

“It’s not to say it can’t be done, but losing weight on your own is a very difficult thing to accomplish,” says study author Craig Johnston, Ph.D., researcher in the department of medicine at Baylor College of Medicine. “Finding a weight-loss program that works for you puts you around people who can support and motivate you.”

Our program provides you with all the support you need to keep you motivated and on track!

CarbChoice may offer you support for managing how your body processes starchy carbohydrates.

Fitgenes has provided genetic test reports from Australia since 2009, and is a world leader in developing genetic profile reports that provide dietary, lifestyle and exercise interventions based on the role of the AMY1 gene CNV in starchy carbohydrate metabolism.

Scientific studies have shown that variations in the human salivary amylase gene (AMY1) differ based on populations which have traditionally eaten high starch diets, compared to those who have traditionally eaten low starch diets (Perry et al. 2007). Copy number variations within the AMY1 gene impact salivary amylase activity (Yang et al. 2015; Santos et al. 2012), which influences how well the body breaks down and processes starch.  Copy number variations and amylase activity can also impact the oral perception of starch leading to nutritional differences (Mandel et al. 2010).

Simply, some people can process starchy carbohydrates better than others, and this can impact their nutrition, dietary choices and health.

Amylase activity, and the ability to process starch, has been demonstrated to have impact on BMI (Bonnefond et al. 2017) and hence AMY1 copy number can impact on the related issues of BMI, obesity and weight management (Falchi et al. 2014;  Mejía-Benítez et al. 2015; Viljakainen et al., 2015; Marcovecchio et al. 2016). Low amylase individuals may even be at greater risk of insulin resistance and diabetes if they maintain a high starch diet (Mandel and Breslin 2012).

The unique CarbChoice profile report contains:

  • An easy to understand visual classification of the ability for starchy carbohydrate metabolism.
  • Data on typical carbohydrate content of many common foods.
  • Contains menu suggestion and meal plans.
  • suggests potential exercise interventions (if required) to upregulate amylase activity

 

We can perform this simple swab in the clinic and provide you with a detailed report on your CarbChoice.
