Treating body aches while you're sick or from day to day actvities....
I have a few tips to help ease that achy body when you're sick....
It has been known that taking just one ibuprofen on your sick days, can ease muscle aches.
Each night, take a hot bath with Epsom salts. Epsom salts will not only ease sore muscles, it will also help to detoxify your body, speeding recovery. If you have sore feet, a foot soak in Epsom salts will relieve a lot of the aches.
-Drink a glass of Chocolate milk!
If your stomach can handle it, this always helps me. They say it helps muscles recover after workouts, being sick or injury...who would have thought?
Peppermint oil rubbed into the muscles helps relieve aches and pains. Eucalyptus oil also helps.
-Vitamin D and magnesium!
Often those body aches come due to a lack of vitamins. Magnesium has also been know to help leg aches.
