CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Negative emotions often cause people to eat when they are bored, angry

Dr. Albers recommends a variety of simple practices to increase mindfulness which can lead to reduced stress, better food choices and improved emotional intelligence including:

About Epsom salt
Epsom salt — actually magnesium sulfate — is one of the most versatile household products, with uses ranging from creating at-home spa treatments to soothing achy muscles to helping start or improve gardens. It's been used therapeutically for hundreds of years, and it's gaining a new generation of fans looking for a safe, economical alternative in a sea of expensive, over-the-counter remedies. Epsom salt is easy to use, easy to find in your local pharmacy or grocery store and it costs about the same per use as a cup of coffee.
