10 Important reasons to have your daily magnesium!
- It is used by every cell in the body to create energy.
- Magnesium acts as an antidepressant as it is vital in creating ‘happy hormones’; and it calms and fortifies the brain and nervous system.
- It relaxes our muscles, stabilises our heart rate and treats insomnia by helping you fall asleep.
- Magnesium relaxes the muscles within the digestive tract and relieves constipation.
- It relieves muscle spasms and cramps.
- Magnesium plays an important role in the transport of potassium and calcium which helps nerve conduction.
- It is very important for heart health. The highest amount of magnesium within the whole body is within the heart; and it supports healthy blood pressure.
- It helps to control migraines by releasing pain reducing hormones and reducing constriction of the blood vessels that raise blood pressure.
- It helps to prevent or reverse osteoporosis by increasing our bone density.
- Extra magnesium is needed after a treatment so the body is able to maximize healing!
Calcium deficiency is implicated in over 140 different diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, osteoporosis, receding gums, rheumatoid arthritis, kidney stones, insomnia, heel spurs, bone spurs, cramps and twitches, PMS, low back pain……yet most people don’t need more calcium, they need more magnesium!
I am explaining this to my client who has been suffering from osteoporosis for years.
She has had one hip replacement and is on my treatment table today for pain relief for her lower back and the other hip.
She also gets the hot flushes.
Now I am breaking the news to her that her milk intake and calcium supplements have made her worse rather than better!
She has never heard of magnesium; all she had been told was to drink lots of milk and have her calcium tablets.
When it comes to your minerals, think of calcium as chalk and magnesium as the glue that keeps it all together, I tell her.
When your bones are crumbling, you need superglue (magnesium) to transform the chalk into superior bones and teeth.
This may sound simplistic, but it is even more simplistic to assume that calcium supplements will go straight into your bones.
The reality is that when your magnesium stores are low, blood levels of calcium will be too high already.
Elevated levels of calcium in the blood may lead to hardening of the arteries, spurs on the spine and heels, kidney stones, calcification of your breast tissue which may lead to mastectomies and calcification of your ovaries and other glands, interfering with your hormone levels so you age prematurely and lose that overall youthful feel and look.
It is wrong to assume that osteoporosis and tooth decay can be prevented by high calcium intake.
Calcium intake is a prescription for accelerated ageing.
There is published evidence that shows that the Bantu women in Africa with a very low calcium intake have the lowest rate of osteoporosis in the world.
Some Asian populations have and intake of only 300 milligrams of calcium daily and they also have the lowest incidence of osteoporosis.
In western countries, the average calcium intake is about 1000mg.
The higher the calcium intake, especially in the form of pasteurized and homogenized cow’s milk, the higher the incidence of osteoporosis.
Let me explain how this happens:
In our body about half of the magnesium is found in the bones and the other half inside the cells of the tissues and organs.
In contrast 99% of calcium is in the bones and the rest is in the fluid outside the cells.
To use your muscles calcium must move into the cells.
To relax calcium has to be pumped out and magnesium flows back in.
This calcium/magnesium pump mechanism requires energy.
When energy is lacking calcium may build up inside the cells.
This may lead to cramps, stiffness and poor blood circulation.
As time goes on more and more soft tissue becomes calcified.
All this calcium comes from the bones.
Nerves tissue can also accumulate calcium, cataracts may form, hormones go out of whack and all other cells become handicapped in their function.
The last thing you want to do now is pump more calcium into an already calcified body.
You don’t want to become and Egyptian mummy before your time!
If you recognize any of these symptoms your body is screaming out for magnesium:
- Depression or anxiety
- Irritability and agitation
- Lethargy and fatigue
- Poor attention span
- Memory loss
- Cramps, spasms, eye twitching
- Weak muscles or dizziness
- Back aches
- Blood clots
- Chronic fatigue
- Cold extremities
- Cravings for chocolate
- Headaches or migraines
- High blood pressure
- Kidney stones
- Panic attacks
- Accelerated ageing
- All over body tension
- Bowel problems
- Numbness of hands and feet
- Post natal depression
- Testosterone deficiency in men
- Excess testosterone in women, leading to facial hair and scalp hair loss
- MS, Parkinson
- Heart disease.
I guess that sounds like you, me and everybody else in your circle of friends and family….and there is a reason for this!
When you are stressed your adrenal glands go into overdrive and release adrenalin and cortisol into your blood stream.
After a while your body thinks that being in a stressed state is normal and it keeps on pumping out stress hormones day and night.
These hormones cause the loss of magnesium through your urine.
The longer your stress levels last the more magnesium you lose.
Magnesium is the circuit breaker that protects your Nervous System from blowing up.
Calcium will have the opposite effect, because it antagonizes the action of magnesium.
You even need magnesium to produce energy.
Where do you think energy is produced?
Right inside each cell of your body.
And what does each cell need to produce energy?
No, not a double shot coffee, it needs Magnesium!
But if your body is flooded by calcium, magnesium can’t reach the cells or tissues.
To keep calcium in the bones and teeth, and to remove calcium from your soft tissues where it’s causing pain and stiffness, you need a steady supply of magnesium.
Magnesium can reverse osteoporosis as one patient reported: “My GP rang regarding my bone density scan and wanted to know what I had been doing over the last 2 years. I asked why, and she said that by looking at the 2015 and 2016 scans, she could see with the 2018 scan that I had improved. She couldn’t believe it and said that normally when you are in the osteoporosis range, you don’t come out of it.”
This person had reversed osteoporosis by reducing her calcium intake and greatly increasing her magnesium intake. (In addition to the trace mineral boron,).
People often ask me: ‘Do I get enough magnesium from my foods?” The short answer is: “No you don’t”.
Artificial fertilizers suppress the uptake of magnesium in the vegetables.
And no, because one molecule of sugar displaces 50 molecules of magnesium.
(I read in a Dutch magazine that Aussies are the highest consumers of ice-cream at a rate of 17 kilos per person per year. Americans came next at 16 kilos and the Dutch were way behind at a paltry 6 kilos of ice-cream per person per year. That’s a lot of magnesium down the drain).
One of the easiest and healthiest forms of magnesium is magnesium oil, or magnesium chloride.
You can rub it all over you body before you go to bed for a good night sleep, or in the morning after you shower to nullify your stress levels.
It is excellent to rub on sore fingers, joints, necks or lower backs.
It even boosts your immune system.
Studies showed that the same number of white blood cells killed 3 times more microbes than before, after the person took magnesium chloride.
Other diseases that can greatly benefit from magnesium supplementation are: Parkinson, tremors, gall bladder problems, hay fever, warts and itches, impotence, anaphylactic reactions, emphysema, tonsillitis, flu, whooping cough, measles, mumps, boils and abscesses, infected wounds, asthma and bronchitis, pneumonia, rheumatic diseases, herpes zoster, shock, tetanus and chronic fatigue.
An energy medicine session will re-balance and restore your mineral levels.
You remain fully dressed and get to relax on the treatment table in our nice warm rooms.
During a healing session we focus on removing memories of traumas that keep our body in a dehydrated and de-mineralized state.
Imbalances caused by mineral deficiencies or lack of water drains our life force on all levels: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
Sometimes we can drink as much water as we like, but it doesn’t reach the proper destination.
It doesn’t penetrate the cells and our insides remain dehydrated.
That also means that chemical messages can’t reach the cells for proper functioning and our mineral balance will be way out of kilter.
Unless you have an energy medicine session, you will remain stuck in that state.
After an energy healing treatment you will feel great.
After a few more session you will feel even better, and you notice that you are so much lighter and calmer because on a deep level subconscious stresses have been cleared.
There is usually no drama involved, and you don’t need to talk, because we gain most of our answers from your Core Self!
