I've had lots of tips running through my head the last few days, but the one I'm going to share today is the most pressing thing on my mind the last 24 hours.
I've been having lots of shoulder pain lately. Sometimes more, sometimes less. I've been told by my doctor that often times women of my "certain age" get frozen shoulder....... just because. I've been trying to avoid this problem by stretching, massage and adjustments, but sometimes the stress of life becomes too overwhelming and it catches up with me.
My shoulders have been KILLING me the last few days. But I completely forgot to heed my own advice. You know the old fashioned remedy of soaking in an epsom salt bath?
Last year TL suffered from some major back spasms. He couldn't even stand up straight. I took him to my trusty myopractor and he was able to release a little of the tension but he told him to go home and soak in some epsom salts. Well, I know very few men who enjoy soaking in a hot tub, the only exception being my sons, who love to read in the tub, however, that may be TMI. He absolutely refused. So I sat him in a recliner, and had him soak his feet in a nice warm epsom salt mixture, and gave him about 500 mg of magnesium tablets. It really seemed to assist in the healing of his spasms.
So last night, I took my hot epsom salt bath and tossed back a few magnesium pills and I can honestly say that I was able to sleep better and woke up with less tension. I'm not a doctor and not prescribing this as the cure for all ills, but it sure helps me out!
I just need to remember to heed my own advice. And maybe get rid of a little more stress........
