Join health host Dr Jewell to learn about the health benefits of EPSOM SALT. Her special guest is Jim Hill president of Giles Chemical, a domestic producer of Epsom Salt and one of the founding members of the Epsom Salt Council. The Council was formed in 1993 to help spread the word about Epsom Salt, a mineral compound so versatile that its uses range from creating at-home spa treatments to soothing achy muscles to helping start or improve gardens. Epsom Salt – actually magnesium sulfate – can be found in your local pharmacy or grocery store for about the same price as a cup of coffee, and there are about 43,000 tons of Epsom Salt sold annually in the United States. Numerous studies have demonstrated the profound and wide-ranging benefits of magnesium and sulfate, and celebrities such as model Stephanie Seymour and domestic guru Martha Stewart have extolled its virtues. Jim has been in the Epsom Salt business for 15 years. He lives in the North Carolina mountains with his wife and three small children. To learn more, please visit www.epsomsaltcouncil.org.
