I always feel better after a good hot detox bath ... Magnesium salts in the hot tub helps even more x
I always have Epsom Salt
If it feels good it is good & a hot tube always feels phenomenal.
Detox baths have been a huge help for my RA.
What do you put in them for detoxing?
Dee Cano epsom salt.
Teresa Swanson thank you. I use it too.
Always helps me
Helps a lot!
Helps me a lot !!
Yes.. Anything hot.
In Kenya its usually very hot... So even the sun can help me out?
The sun is good for vitaminD. Sometimes a deficiency can cause pain. But i meant a heating pad, preferably far infrared, or hot bath shower. Celine Drew
Love epsom salt baths.
Hot/Heat Always helps me. But when my hips are hurting me very bad from the RA my rtub is low so I need help getting up but other than that I love hot showers and baths when I get up in the morning in pain and stiff I always jump in the hot shower to help me
Make me swell. Jacuzzi too
Makes me swell up too. I guess you and I are the odd ones. LOL
Hot water and heat is not good for inflammation. It makes my joints achy.
Always helps me too I just feel so light and relaxed when I come out after a good soak !!
What about steam rooms and saunas? I’ve just joined the gym. Wondering if it might also help?
Yes yes yes!! Lucky you, I've considered joining a gym for this benefits alone. Anything hot eases my pain.
Yes I’ve just come back 30 minute workout and 30 min steam and sauna feel wonderful. Does help detox I think as I’ve just drunk 2 litres of water in the hour!
I take a hot bath every night, it helps a lot.
I wish it helped me like it helps the other people who have commented but it Hurts me something awful. I think it just depends. Everybody is different but since getting this disease I have to take lukewarm showers and avoid hot tubs.
OMG my tub is my saving grace!! I take a super hot bath as hot as I can stand it every single night. I say "When I am in my tub, I don't have RA" because it soothes my pain so much it takes it away.
My Rheumatologist says that therapy pools are not good for RA, but a hot tub would be okay. Not what the difference would be.
I don't know the difference. My doctor told me if hot baths help keep doing it. She also signed me up for water therapy, due to its am losing alot of muscle and we pretty much have free motion in water.
Depends on if heat helps or hurts you. Me heat is the enemy so, hot tubes are a no go, now a pool helps me a lot
Everynight before i sleep Epsom Bath helps me relax and sleep
Yes it helps me
It helps me. (With Epsom salt)
Helps me temporarily
yes i use daily its a must for me
It helps me temporarily I have one every night with 3 cups of Epsom salts and some lavender oil
Yes I have a bath every day.
Heat and hot baths feel so good for me BUT I am told by friends who are in the medical profession that if you are experiencing a flare and the area is red and swollen, not to apply heat as that is not good for inflammation. On those areas, ice is best. Use heat only when the area is not red and inflamed.
Yes! I wish I had a tub I could soak in.
