Why Arnold, Why?

I am so dissapointed in the whole Schwarzenegger situation.  If the couple has issues that they can't get past, that is one thing but this is such a let down.  An eye opener as well.

-Bromides act to ease muscle stiffness and relax muscles.

-Sodium is important for the lymphatic fluid balance (this in turn is

important for immune system function

-Potassium energizes the body, helps to balance skin moisture and is a crucial mineral to replenish following

intense exercise. strengthening bones and nails

A high quality sea salt could replenish the minerals, which are critical to our skin’s metabolism. Studies have been conducted on the health benefits of bathing in Dead Sea salts, with patients experiencing marked

improvement, including relief from osteoarthritis and tendonitis with

increased mobility and reduced pain leading to a decline in their use of


Dead Sea salt baths also helped with psoriasis, decreasing the

effects of itching, sleep disturbances, and skin scaling. There are no associated side effects from the use of Dead sea Salts.
