Bicarbonate & Magnesium – Medical Baths

Published on August 3, 2010

I could have called this book Therapeutic Bicarbonate Magnesium Baths but I chose the word medical to distinguish the difference between something calming, soothing and gradually therapeutic and what I am going to stress in this book – a stronger kind of medical intervention where we are looking for immediate effects as we would in an emergency room.

As such, this book is directed toward doctors and alternative healthcare practitioners, though ordinary people can also learn of the benefits of treating themselves – or parents can treat their children – safely and effectively using the methods found within these pages. There is a full range of situations, including cancer, where medical baths can help save the day. In the present situation in the Gulf region bicarbonate and magnesium baths as well as clay baths can help enormously to neutralize airborne oil toxicity that directly threaten all aspects of human and animal physiology.

The secret to safe and effective medicine is found in using medicinal substances in reasonable doses that do not have side effects. This is the very meaning of safe –something that will not harm. Magnesium and bicarbonate together are miraculous and it really is not an exaggeration to say that miracles in medicine would be achieved if people’s magnesium and bicarbonate deficiencies were addressed instead of ignored.

The medicines we are going to be using in our baths – sodium bicarbonate, magnesium chloride, and sodium thiosulfate – create a sound center for the safe practice of naturopathic and allopathic medicine.

It is important to realize that our relaxing baths can be brought up to therapeutic levels where they can be used in emergency situations such as nuclear fallout, before and after surgery, chemotherapy and, most importantly, before and after dangerous medical tests or therapies that use radiation. These are serious medical situations where our bathing experience, knowledge, and stocks of concentrated nutritional mineral medicines can be lifesavers.

For adults, medicinal baths can be a luxury, but for a baby they can sometimes mean the difference between life and death. This is a vitally important form of medicine for parents taking care of their children without the expense and interference of pediatricians who are more interested in poisoning their kids with lethal vaccines that do more harm than good. Vaccines are causing a pandemic in neurological damages with accompanying severe learning disabilities. Medical officials will go to their graves claiming it’s safe to inject babies with thimerosal, which is 50 percent organic mercury by weight, leaving parents and healthcare providers the dirty work of cleaning up their mess.


Bath time is more than just a time to clean your baby or child; it can also be a special time to care for a child’s nutritional and medical needs even when perfectly healthy. By loading their baths with nutritional medicinals like bicarbonate, magnesium and even iodine, we can strengthen our children against the toxicities of the world. We can also strengthen them before receiving ill-advised vaccines since their magnesium and bicarbonate deficient bodies will be more vulnerable to the toxic insult that vaccines present directly to the blood, which is, after all, a highly sensitive medium.

For parents who blindly accept everything their pediatricians say or prescribe, it is important to know about these baths so you can treat your young ones both before and after receiving multiple vaccines. If your child is having a reaction to a vaccine, you can mediate against damages with a concentrated bicarbonate and magnesium bath.
