Hi Adam, I don't know too much about using magnesium sulfate ( I suppose one could try bathing in it and letting it be absorbed through the skin), but I do know about using magnesium as a mineral supplement.
Magnesium, along with other mineral salts, is necessary to maintain osmotic pressure. It is needed for ion balance, activation of enzymes, muscular activity, nerve stability, and bone structure. Some of the magnesium difficiency symtoms are vasodilation, nervous conditions spasticity of muscles and digestive disturbances.
The daily minimum requirement is 0.22gm.

Now, from a different perspective, Magnesium citrate, -(citrate is more easily absorbed by the body) supplements could be tried for the treatment of CH. Infusion of Magnesium has been tested on migraine subjects with positive results, with up to 50% of subjects finding rapid and sustained relief. I have personally tried Magnesium citrate supplements along with a digestive aid(for better absorption - this may be a big part of the problem in Ch sufferers). While using the supplements, my headaches diminished and I am now in remission. Unfortunately, I can not unequivically state that the supplements were responsible for the remission as I have be undergoing other herbal and natural treatments at the same time. All I can say is that my inner senses tell me this treatment has genuine value in treating CH and it should not be overlooked as just another "quackpot" idea.

PS: It is very interesting that magnesium has come up as a subject for discussion here. It was very strongly on my mind yesterday...who is mind reading here?
