Is Epsom salts good for thrush?

Thanks for checking out my video. Is Epsom salts good for thrush? Epsom salts is also called magnesium sulfate. In fact, it’s a very common preparation used by a lot of people, particularly for things like detox baths or to sooth aching muscles. It can also be used as a dietary supplement to increase magnesium in the body, although it’s not really as good as other forms of magnesium like gluconate or citrate, for example, or magnesium taurate. Mainly because it can disassociate easing the bowel and cause loose bowel motions or even diarrhea with many people. But for thrush, it’s not really affective.

I don’t think it’s something really you’re going to get a lot of benefit from. You could use it as a detox bath. Epsom salts is also commonly used in flotation tanks. People have got a lot of Epsom salts in there with a small amount of water on top, which allows you to float on top of the water.

Why don’t you try boric acid for thrush? Boric acid is a much more effective product to use than magnesium sulfate.
