Epsom Salts - Holy Grail of Healing



Most mercury toxic people need to be doing Epsom Salt flushes. I recommend doing at least one a week starting out with the Wilking Protocol, unless there are some extenuating circumstances.  As always, check with your doctor to see if our protocol, and an Epsom salt flush is right for you.

Our bodies will not detox from mercury without sulfur, and many of us long-time poisoned mercury types are very deficient in sulfur.  Anyone with arthritis, loss of hair, a skin condition, nail problems, bowel troubles, feelings of depression or anxiety, eye and ear problems, are sulfur deficient.

Using Epsom salts to flush our intestines and liver allows us to open them back up for business.  The body can then dispose of toxins like mercury through our GI tract, rather than sending it to the kidneys or skin.  Our skin breathes a little easier, and the stress comes off our adrenal glands sitting on top of our kidneys.  Our body can use the glutathione it makes to help us feel better, rather than chasing mercury around like a teacher who can't give any of the other students attention because there is a really bad kid in class.

When we flush with Epsom we begin to open up our detox pathways.  By increasing our sulfur intake, and flushing, we flush the excess sulfur right along with a bunch of retained toxins.  Pulsing the magnesium sulfate like this, helps us to avoid a kickback response where the body moves too much mercury too fast, or gets backed up on the sulfur.

From your local pharmacy or drug store,
buy a USP grade Epsom Salt (magnesium sulfate,)
 where it gives clear directions on how to use it as a laxative. 
Follow those directions.

I am going to explain again why I recommend regular Epsom salt flushes.  You don't want to increase essential elements into your body without pooping more. This is how we end up going back to Pharmaceuticals looking for some kind of drug or relief for a symptom.  Everything we ingest goes through a cyclical process. In other words, if we take in sulfur, it goes through a 'sulfur cycle' in our bodies.  If the back end of the cycle isn't up to the task, we can get stuck with excess sulfite, or some other problem.  The glutathione our cells made with the Epsom (magnesium sulfate) can turn into a free radical, and it can start attacking our own cells. This happens because all the parts of our sulfur cycle are NOT in place.  Sulfur is the 8th most common element in the human body.  Most sick people have some problem with their sulfur cycle(s).  For example, we can not detox from mercury if we don't have enough sulfur.   For instance, our body can be running around trying to deal with mercury, using all available sulfur, and then it doesn't have enough sulfur to repair our skin, or make our intestines nice and tight so that they don't leak.  However, if we take in a bunch of sulfur, we can end up moving a bunch of mercury with no place for it to go, or we end up as I describe in the scenario above.  By pulsing the essentials into our bodies, by doing flushes, we then have a transportation system with on and off ramps, and lights, and policemen that direct the traffic. If we don't pulse it, and just start raising our doses of essentials we can end up with traffic jams all over the place, and a lot of angry drivers, and a lot of miscreants (mercury) with nowhere for them to go.

The healthcare industry tells us Epsom Salts are to be used only for Detox Baths, and reducing inflammation from swelling.  They also tell us that we can take them ‘occasionally’ for constipation.  Epsom Salts, MgSO4, Magnesium Sulfate, is commonly found in our local drug store on the bottom shelf, covered with dust. 
What are they NOT telling us?

Western Healthcare is NOT telling us that they use MgSO4 intravenously to heal people.  Instead, we are told that we can easily reach a state of hypermagnesemia, and that we can die from it.  The primary reference for this statement is from a death in 1943 from an Epsom salt enema

Let's keep this in perspective.  There are 75,000 emergency room visits a year because of Tylenol, acetaminophen poisoning.  Tylenol, with acetaminophen, also known as paracetamol, wrecks the sulfur stores in our livers and body.

The scare tactics used by the healthcare industry to keep people away from Magnesium Sulfate, from getting hypermagesemia, are rooted in their own poisonings of people with magnesium sulfate IV’s, and even then the evidence is sketchy that the problem was caused by IV magnesium sulfate.

Magnesium sulfate IV’s are used for treating severe cases of asthma, preeclampsia, extreme body convulsions, ventricular arrhythmia's (heart attacks), tetanus, jaundice, detoxing people from acetaminiophen poisonings, and benzodiazepine withdrawal.

We are never told to use magnesium sulfate as a daily dietary supplement.  Instead, we are told it is not recommended.  I have personally found it extremely difficult to find references to anyone taking a daily maintenance dose of MgSO4.  How much Epsom salt would be required to meet our Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) needs of Magnesium?  About 1/3 teaspoon.  What else do Epsom salts contain that the For-Profit Healthcare Industry might hide from us?  Sulfur.

To make insulin, two peptide bonds are tied together with a disulfide bond, that's sulfur, and without enough insulin, we become diabetic.  For good health, our skin and hair require sulfur.  The burning smell of hair is from the sulfur contained in keratin.  Our glutathione detoxification system requires sulfur.  Our production of the amino acid cysteine requires sulfur.

If you have ever taken acetaminophen, Tylenol, coal-tar medicine, and you haven't loaded up on sulfur, the Coal-Tar may still be in your liver.  Our bodies cannot detoxify from coal-tar medicines if we do not have enough sulfur.  We cannot detoxify from mercury without sulfur.  The body requires glutathione to detox, and sulfur is part of it's chemical compounding.  If the body does not have enough sulfur to run it's metabolic processes, it will break down essential cysteine, methionine, and glutathione to access the sulfur molecule.

In the 1930’s, crop fertilizers in the United States of America began to exclusively use ammonia.  Sulfur was dropped as a fertilizer.  Is it possible there is collusion between our government and the big business food industry?  Incredibly, there is NO Recommended Daily Allowance for Sulfur.  It doesn’t exist.  Sulfur, an essential mineral to our health, and there is NO RDA for it?

Parents are detoxing their autistic children with Epsom Salt baths.  Constipated people take MgSO4 for emergency clean-outs.  Magnesium sulfate reduces swelling of our broken or sprained limbs.  The healthcare industry injects it into our bodies.  However, the Healthcare Industry has NO recommended daily dose of Sulfur!  There is no RDA for Sulfur?!





If necessary, you may add anything you like to mask the taste of the Epsom salts.  Juices of lemon, orange, apple or any other juice is fine.

'To treat constipation with Epsom salt, follow dosage guidelines. For adults and children 12 years old and older, dissolve 2-4 level teaspoons of Epsom salt in 8 ounces of water and drink immediately. For children 6 to 11 years old, dissolve 1-2 level teaspoons of Epsom salt in 8 ounces of water and drink immediately.'

Epsom salt usually produces a bowel movement within 30 minutes to six hours. A dose or two should clear up acute constipation.


Although many websites have warnings not to give small children Epsom salts, I can find no verified reason as to what the danger of it would be.  Instead, Western Healthcare prescribes proven poisons like Miralax.

This website says this:
'For children of above 1 year age, take 1/2 teaspoon in cup of cold water or juice.'

My recommendation is to proceed with caution, and as a caregiver, you should always administer a treatment to yourself first, before doing it with a child.




Sulfur toxicity is just a fantasy.  NO one on the planet has ever died from consuming too much sulfur, although some people have died from breathing in sulfur fumes.  If anyone had ever died from ingesting sulfur, don't you think the healthcare industry would have a fancy name for a sulfur toxicity?  If they wanted us to know about Sulfur deficiency, wouldn't they have a fancy name for it too? 

Here are the names of some common examples of getting too much of an essential.
HyperMagnesia - Too much Magnesium
HyperKalemia - Too much Potassium
HyperNatremia - Too much Sodium
HyperCalcemia - Too much Calcium
HyperOxia - Too much Oxygen
Hemochromatosis - Too much Iron

Where is the name for a poisoning from too much sulfur?  There isn't one, It doesn't exist! 

If you wanted to make money poisoning people, and then treating the symptoms, how could it be done?  Have the approved governmental healthcare authority, the FDA or NIH, leave an essential to our health off the list of essentials to our heath, and then eliminate that essential from the food supply, so we can not detox from the poisons delivered to use by the Healthcare Industry, poisons like Mercury, Fluoride, Bromine, Acetaminophen, Polysorbate 80, Aluminum, Formaldehyde, MSG...



I like much of this article.  However, I do not agree that methionine is a good source of sulfur for a mercury toxic person.  Loose sulfur/thiols can cause mercury redistribution.

'In 1860, I.G. Farben (Bayer) first produced chemical fertilizers from coal tar. By 1938, Nelson Rockefeller and Prescott Bush contracted with I.G. Farben to develop and aggressively market ammonium nitrate and ammonia sulfate as chemical fertilizers.'

'The process they used for these required heat and naturally occurring sulfur is one of the most temperature-sensitive of all elements. These fertilizers are devoid of sulfur due to the 360 degree F temperatures used for production; this temperature is 100 degrees over the vaporization point of sulfur.'


To learn more about acetaminophen poisoning and sulfur deficiency, please read down to at least the 2nd paragraph in this article.
'Factors that can reduce the availability of methionine/cysteine.'


'Sulfur is known as a healing mineral, and a sulfur deficiency often leads to pain and inflammation associated with various muscle and skeletal disorders. Sulfur plays a role in many biological processes, one of which is metabolism. It is present in insulin, the essential hormone that promotes the utilization of sugar derived from carbohydrates for fuel in muscle and fat cells.'



There are so many pages here I'm just giving you the Google search for it.


A child that gets a dangerously high fever should never be given Tylenol or acetaminophen.  Instead, Magnesium Sulfate appears to be the treatment of choice for safe fever reduction, and the prevention of epileptic seizures.


Instead of strong recommendations to supplement with sulfur, we get alternative healthcare misinformation campaigns to do genetic testing, testing that will be moot when we get the essentials to good health.  Mercury is an epigenetic.  Get rid of the mercury, the genes go back to the way they were intended to be.


'What dose of intravenous (IV) magnesium sulfate should be used in the treatment of acute severe asthma?
Response from James E. Gern, MD.'

'There have been a number of studies to evaluate the usefulness of IV magnesium sulfate (MgSO4) in the treatment of acute exacerbations of asthma, and most have used 1.2-2 g IV over 20 minutes administered soon after the subject presented for care.[1] The MgSO4 was generally administered in combination with standard asthma therapy such as nebulized beta-adrenergic agonists and either oral or IV corticosteroid. In general, no benefits have been observed in subjects with mild-to-moderate airway obstruction, but there is some evidence that MgSO4 might be efficacious in subjects with severe airway obstruction.'

'For example, in a large multicenter study of 248 subjects with acute severe asthma, treatment with MgSO4 2 g IV was beneficial in the subset of patients who presented with severe airway obstruction (forced expiratory volume in 1 second [FEV1] < 25% predicted), but not in subjects with less severe airway obstruction.[2] However, not all investigators have found benefits in severely affected individuals. Porter and colleagues[3] conducted a double-blinded placebo-controlled trial involving 42 subjects who presented to an emergency department with a peak expiratory flow rate < 100 L/min (or < 25% predicted). Treatment with MgSO4 2 g IV in addition to standard therapy was not helpful, and in fact, the treated subjects had significantly lower peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR) 1 hour after receiving the medication.'

'In summary, the use of IV magnesium in acute severe asthma remains controversial, but can be considered for patients with acute severe asthma who do not respond to standard therapy. Additional studies are needed to better define which patients are most likely to benefit from this treatment.'

'Magnesium deficiency plays an important role in alcohol withdrawal syndromes. Parenteral replacement of magnesium in the form of magnesium sulfate is safe and diminishes the severity of withdrawal symptoms in recently alcohol-abstinent patients. Early diagnosis of withdrawal illness and institution of magnesium replacement therapy decrease the need for benzodiazepines, diminish withdrawal complications and reduce the length of hospital stay. Testing for serum magnesium levels is useful, but experience supports the empiric use of magnesium replacement therapy in alcohol withdrawal.'

'In severe cases of preeclampsia, doctors often recommend antiseizure medications. One such medication is called magnesium sulfate. Magnesium sulfate is a mineral that reduces seizure risks in women with preeclampsia. A healthcare provider will give the medication intravenously, or into the body through a vein. Sometimes, it’s also used to prolong pregnancy for up to two days. This allows time for corticosteroid drugs to improve the baby’s lung function.'


The healthcare industry makes money if we are deficient in sulfur, Oxytocin, a compound made in our bodies contains sulfur.  Without sulfur will not have enough of our body's own home made feel goods, and the healthcare industry steps in and supplements their for-profit replacements for our own deficiencies.

'Oxytocin is normally produced by the paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus and released by the posterior pituitary.  It plays a role in social bonding, sexual reproduction in both sexes, and during and after childbirth.  Oxytocin is released into the bloodstream as a hormone in response to stretching of the cervix and uterus during labor and with stimulation of the nipples from breastfeeding.  This helps with birth, bonding with the baby, and milk production.'

When the healthcare industry interferes with this bonding, they have customers for life.



In a study on Epsom salt baths, Magnesium and Sulfur are absorbed.

No volunteer complained of any adverse effects, even at MgSO4 levels of 2.5%. Possible effects on the kidneys were tested by measuring urinary protein content. This did not change significantly, whichever Epsom salt levels were used, over the 8-day period. Kidney damage is therefore not an issue.



'The most extensively studied of the microbes involved in colonic sulfur metabolism are the sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB), which are common colonic inhabitants. Many other microbial pathways are likely to shape colonic sulfur metabolism as well as the composition and availability of sulfated compounds, and these interactions need to be examined in more detail. Hydrogen sulfide is the sulfur derivative that has attracted the most attention in the context of colonic health, and the extent to which it is detrimental or beneficial remains in debate. Several lines of evidence point to SRB or exogenous hydrogen sulfide as potential players in the etiology of intestinal disorders, inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) and colorectal cancer in particular.'

'While the process of assimilatory sulfate reduction is widespread among microbes, only restricted microbial groups are capable of dissimilatory sulfate reduction (Figure 2). The sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB) are notable as the only microbes in intestinal ecosystems that rely on inorganic sulfate for conservation of energy.'

I recommend products that are natural to our well-being, and only ones that can be found in the grocery or health food store.  Everything I recommend I do myself.  Everything I do is on my website, and everyone can use my site to get back to feeling great, naturally.  However, some people can be very deep in the woods, allergic to just about everything, while suffering from chronic pain and inflammation.  Helping people naturally, takes time, patience, attention to detail, and experience.
