Feeling stressed and in need of rescuing? Look no further than a bottle of Magnesium and Zinc!
This story begins in a shoe store in Devonport.
Shoe shops never fail to trigger a flush of feel good hormones in my body and today is no different.
I am just starting to soak up the atmosphere when I am rudely jolted out of my happy trance by the disruptive energy of two women.
The older lady picks up a pair of shoes and says: “These are nice. I like them. Do you want to try them on?”
I turn around to be met by a grumpy look from the younger companion.
“No” is the short answer.
I don’t blame her. In a split second I conclude the shoe in question belongs on the foot of a 60 plusser, not a 16 year old teenager.
The older lady must be delusional about the triple generation gap between her and the young girl.
“There is a shoe shop just round the corner?” the young girl suggests carefully as she moves towards the shop exit.
“That shop is soo expensive!” I hear her grandma sigh. By now I have made up my mind that they are probably grandmother and granddaughter.
Before I can make any more deductions I hear the grandmother’s voice rise to an ugly high pitch as the following accusations roll off her tongue: “You ungrateful little #$%&+!!! You are just like your mum! Always !!#$%&!!@@!##**!!” etc.
The noise fades as she exits the shop clutching her wallet. My hearing isn’t as good as it used to be, but I can easily fill in the blanks.
I slowly sit down with the three pairs that I have chosen to try on.
Yes, the female brain is capable of eavesdropping, piecing together a complete history of disastrous mother-daughter-granddaughter relationships as well as making snap decisions on the latest shoe fashion and how it fits in an existing wardrobe.
A few minutes later I am walking outside wearing my latest purchase musing over the ugly scene I had just witnessed..
Unfortunately for the women in this story there won’t be a happy ending unless they come to the Purple House to sort out their problems.
I could have fixed them there and then if I’d had the resources and the courage!
From a nutrient point of view all dysfunctional behaviour stems from a dysfunction on the cellular level.
What I witnessed in the shoe shop was a cry for the mineral Magnesium.
All minerals perform important functions in our bodies, which we take completely for granted.
It is not till there is a blockage, deficiency or mal-absorption that we begin to experience painful symptoms.
These symptoms then become problems to be either ignored or analysed, studied and pushed around by well meaning professionals.
This often involves a lot of money and time and yet all the while the role of minerals is overlooked.
At the end of the day your Doctor, Counselor, Psychologist or Psychiatrist can’t help you. He/she hasn’t been taught to recognize mineral deficiencies or the effects it has on the body, on your nervous system and on your relationships.
How do you know if you are magnesium deficient?
A blood test won’t help you because only 1% of magnesium is in the blood. The other 99% is in the bones, muscles and tissues of the body.
The sad fact is that most of us are magnesium deficient.
Some experts believe that the average person is six months magnesium deficient!
This places us at higher risk of high blood pressure and heart disease.
Research shows that people with cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and diabetes usually have significantly lower body levels of magnesium.
Magnesium helps to relax the muscular walls of your arteries and keeps your heart beat regular and even.
Ironically most high blood pressure medication which is meant to help you, depletes your body of magnesium so you actually feel worse than you did before!
Magnesium deficiency makes you feel extremely stressed so you feel overwhelmed all the time.
Every minor annoyance turns into a major grievance, causing you to explode (or implode) placing a heavy burden on your nervous system.
Now you are trapped in a negative spiral: The more stressed you feel the more magnesium deficient you become.
Have a look at the list of symptoms of magnesium deficiency to see if any of these symptoms ring a bell:
irritability and agitation
depression or anxiety
lethargy and fatigue
poor attention span
cramps, spasms, eye twitching
cravings for chocolate
headaches or migraines
high blood pressure
all over body tension
numbness of hands and feet
post natal depression
testosterone deficiency in men
excess testosterone in women, leading to facial hair and scalp hair loss
When you are stressed your adrenal glands go into overdrive and release adrenaline and cortisol into your bloodstream.
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.
Imagine if the grandma in the shoe store had taken a double dose of magnesium the day she went shopping with her teenage granddaughter (highly recommended).
She would have been chilled out like this:
(Grandma picks up an old-fashioned shoe) “Oh, look at this, I really like it! Why don’t you try it on?”
Granddaughter: “NO!” (grumpy look)
Grandma: “Oh, silly me, I forgot that you aren’t a little child any more. You have grown up so fast!” (Gives her a fond smile).
“Here is some money (gives her a hundred dollar note). Go and look around by yourself while I sit across the road in the sun with a coffee. Send me a message when you are finished! Love you!”
(She can’t help embarrassing her granddaughter by blowing her a kiss as she walks out).
Magnesium is your ticket to serenity!
In reality depleted mums give birth to magnesium deficient babies and so the cycle continues, each generation showing deeper stress fractures than the one before.
Magnesium is extremely important for a healthy body, and for creating loving and respectful relationships.
Magnesium is crucial to all stages of life, from the newborn to the aged.
In children, magnesium contributes to the proper growth of bones and teeth, and promotes physical and mental development.
Pregnant women at any age should supplement with magnesium so they stay strong mentally and physically and to create a healthy baby.
Men need more magnesium than women, which is a fact that is often overlooked.
Magnesium oil or magnesium chloride is readily absorbed through the skin. It works immediately to reduce pain and to raise crucial magnesium
levels 10 times faster than oral magnesium, without upsetting your digestion.
It even helps to increase DHEA (the famed youth hormone) levels, so you start looking and feeling as young as your grandchildren. And it is super affordable at $12 per bottle.
A combination of Magnesium and Calcium is not helpful.
Calcium does the exact opposite to magnesium.
It constricts the blood vessels, and can cause hardening of the arteries, kidney stones and excess calcium in your urinary tract and soft tissues.
There are many cheap and nasty versions of magnesium on today’s market.
It’s generally best to take a complete form of magnesium that combines several different types of good magnesium all in one tablet or powder. We sell these at the Purple House.
The powder is faster absorbed and quicker acting.
Children are able to supplement with Mighty Mins, which covers their daily mineral and vitamin requirements.
Mag Phos Tissue Salts are suitable for children as well as adults.
Last but not least are Epsom Salt baths. You need to add at least 1 kg per bath and allow your body to soak for 20 minutes. Turn this into a twice weekly ritual and you will feel as new!
In short : dehydration, combined with magnesium deficiency causes your body to be in a chronic state of survival or ‘fight and flight’.
This means that you become highly reactive and burn up excessive amounts of minerals.
What makes it even worse is that your digestion will be switched off while you are in ‘survival’ mode, so you won’t get the full benefits from the foods you eat.
One excellent solution to this modern day problem is found in energy medicine sessions at the Purple House.
You only need one session to find and dissolve the root cause, open up the energy pathways, boost your mineral levels and clear the blockages in mineral absorption and utilisation.
The slate will be wiped squeaky clean from generations worth of mineral depletion, disrupted relationships and destructive behaviours.
Peace, harmony and hydration will be restored at the cell level.
If this sounds too good to be true it is time you experienced it for yourself! You (and your family) deserve it!
