Magnesium Deficiency

Recently by Mark Sircus: Magnesium Oil

Magnesium is grossly deficient in the great majority of people existing on modern diets. The clinical situation is so bad that when it comes to magnesium people with chronic diseases can be sure that their magnesium levels will be very low. This means that they will respond exceptionally well to treatments with magnesium chloride.

Magnesium chloride treatments address systemic nutritional deficiencies, act to improve the function of our cells and immune system, and help protect cells from oxidative damage. Magnesium is a systemic medicine as well as a local one bringing new life and energy to the cells wherever it is applied topically. When used with oral administration, transdermal magnesium therapy offers us the opportunity to get dosages up to the powerful therapeutic range without compromising intestinal comfort through oral use alone.

It is with no surprise that when one walks into a cardiologist’s office for an examination one will not commonly be asked questions that expose magnesium deficiencies? Can you imagine running your car without oil? Well magnesium is the “oil” of the heart and it insures its proper function. A car mechanic would never ignore checking oil levels especially when a care pulls into the station with smoke puffing out of the manifold yet cardiologists are not paying attention to the magnesium story.

One hardly needs to have a test if patient’s diet consists of any of the three prominent white foods. White rice, white sugar and white bread are white because they are stripped of their mineral, vitamin and fiber content. These are poison foods because they starve us of magnesium. When consumed they demand that we supplement with magnesium or we are destined to breakdown and get sick and even die of cancer, cardiac arrest, or suffer with diabetes, a stroke or some kind of neurological disease. But these are not the only foods that are devoid of magnesium. In general magnesium has been depleted from topsoil diminishing dietary intake across the board while our need for magnesium has increased do to increasing toxic exposure.

Magnesium alleviates a score of common problems like muscle pain, migraines, menstrual pain, and depression. You can activate your vital enzyme processes and speed up mitochondrial production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) to increase energy levels.

Magnesium also helps people to sleep, lower blood pressure, increase sports performance, alleviate pain, help repair injuries, increase the oxygen carrying capacity of the red blood cells and insure that insulin is produced and received by the cells. Magnesium is basic to our life processes and is vitally important to our bodies, minds and emotions. No wonder the Chinese called it the beautiful metal.
