Magnesium deficiencies are present in healthy populations thus it behooves every healthcare practitioner and doctor to become fully familiar with how to use magnesium oil, which is the best most versatile form of magnesium. Anyone who has had a session with me will probably have been advised to use magnesium oil spray, on the inner left arm – daily after a warm shower.
Due to our environmental poisons, this is one of the minerals which is extremely deficient in our foods.
Today there are many methods of absorbing this important mineral. One can take magnesium orally, transdermally on the skin through direct application or using it heavily in medicinal baths, and one can nebulize it directly into the lungs.
Magnesium can also be administered through intramuscular injection or intravenously during surgery, heart attacks and stroke.
There is no replacement in the pharmaceutical world for magnesium and in fact, most pharmaceuticals leave the patient more deficient thus needing even more magnesium. Practicing medicine without magnesium is not a good idea.
Magnesium oil is magnesium chloride and is one of the most powerful medicine/medicinals in the world.
Surgery is certainly safer when magnesium is used before, during and after operations. I always recommend Natural Solutions Radiation Clear after any operation.
Magnesium oil is oily but there is no oil—it is approximately 35 percent magnesium chloride. Oil is the right word though, not only because you can use it transdermally as a lubricant to transform simple massages into a medical treatment – for cancer and all other patients, but also because it acts as an oil for almost all physiological processes in the body. What oil does for an engine magnesium oil will do for your health.
Magnesium chloride is also an extremely versatile medicine as it can be put directly on the skin, used orally as a laxative and orally for general intense use. There is nothing like getting a massage with magnesium oil and breast cancer or fibroid patients can apply it on their breasts many times a day for great effect.
Moreover, magnesium chloride in bath flake form (or Epson or Dead Sea Salt) can be used in baths with sodium bicarbonate for strong medicinal effect.
Transdermal magnesium therapy is ideal for pain management. The combination of heat and magnesium chloride increases circulation and waste removal. The therapeutic effect of magnesium baths is to draw inflammation out of the muscles and joints. Magnesium chloride, when applied directly to the skin is transdermally absorbed and has an almost immediate effect on pain.
What better way to reduce or eliminate pain then by simply taking a therapeutic bath or rubbing magnesium chloride in liquid form directly onto the skin or affected area of the body? From the pain of sports injuries to low- back pain and sciatica, headaches, relief from kidney stones, the pain of restless legs, arthritic pain, and just about every painful condition imaginable —all will in all likelihood benefit from magnesium applied topically.
Medicines taken by mouth (oral) pass through the liver before they are absorbed into the bloodstream. Transdermal application bypasses the liver, entering the tissues and blood more directly. Magnesium oil can be applied directly to inflamed areas.
Transdermal magnesium therapy offers an exciting breakthrough in sports medicine. Coaches can now treat injuries, prevent them, and increase athletic performance all at the same time. Transdermal magnesium chloride mineral therapy enhances recovery from athletic activity or injuries. It reduces pain and inflammation while inducing quicker regeneration of tissues. The topical application of magnesium chloride increases flexibility, which helps avoid injury. It also increases strength and endurance.
Human skin is like a tightly woven fabric, seemingly impervious but porous at a microscopic level. Through its millions of tiny openings, the body oozes sweat and absorbs substances applied to the skin. This is why we warn our patients about soaps, body washes, and body creams – beware of what is put onto the skin.
For a topical agent to be effective, obviously it must first be absorbed. The drug must enter in adequate concentration to its proposed site of action to produce the desired response of the skin. This skin is involved in dynamic exchange between the internal and external environments through respiration, absorption, and elimination. It is highly permeable even though it has the ability to maintain its important bacteria-inhibiting barrier with the environment.
Magnesium is intimately involved in over 600 reactions in the body including the metabolism of food, the transmission of nerve impulses, the synthesis of fatty acids and proteins, muscle movements, gene maintenance, and protein formation.
It is one of seven essential macrominerals that must be consumed daily in large amounts — 100 milligrams or more. We store about 25 grams of magnesium in our body with more than 50 percent of this being stored in the skeletal system. The rest goes in the muscles, soft tissues and bodily fluids.
Unfortunately, studies note that most people get far less than the recommended amount of magnesium. It is important to know that magnesium levels in soil are lower than they used to be. Plus, the use of chemicals such as fluoride and chlorine in water makes magnesium less available. In addition, daily use of sugar and caffeine also depletes magnesium supplies within the body. In addition, if you live a high-stress life, it is likely that you are magnesium deficient.
A magnesium deficiency can lead to a range of chronic health issues. Just to name a few: calcium deficiency, poor heart health, weakness, anxiety and high blood pressure. You can also add type 2 diabetes, respiratory issues, fatigue, poor memory and confusion to the list.
Health benefits of magnesium
Here is just a sneak peek at some of the amazing benefits of this tiny macromineral and why it is so important to be sure you are getting enough of it.
Magnesium helps manage insulin levels in the body and can prevent blood sugar spikes and crashes from occurring. It also plays a large role in blood pressure control, preventing high blood pressure from occurring, especially when combined with enough potassium in the diet. This does two things: controls stress that can elevate insulin levels and improves overall blood pressure that, when out of control, increases insulin resistance and can cause type 2 diabetes to occur more easily.
Magnesium is essential for proper brain function and mood regulation. Research indicates that without enough magnesium, you are more prone to depression.
No one likes being anxious. If you find you are frequently in this state, you may want to try increasing your magnesium. Low magnesium levels have been attributed to an increase in anxiety. According to research, a diet low in magnesium changes the types of bacteria present in the gut and alters anxiety-based behavior.
Studies indicate that even having a slightly reduced level of magnesium can cause severe changes in how the heart, blood vessels, blood cells, and other tissues function. Magnesium is critical for proper electrical and mechanical functioning within tissues such as nerves and muscles (such as the heart), and blood vessels.
Research has shown that low brain magnesium is evident during a migraine attack. One study found that a regular intake of magnesium reduced the frequency of migraine attacks by just over 41 percent. Another study found that taking a magnesium supplement daily can help prevent menstrual-related migraines.
Here are just a few signs that you or your patients may be magnesium deficient:
- Muscle cramps
- High blood pressure
- Hormone problems
- Sleep issues
- Low energy
- Low vitamin D
- Low vitamin K
Good sources of magnesium:
Magnesium-rich foods are found abundantly in nature. Try these delicious options:
Spinach is rich in many key nutrients for your health, including magnesium, protein, vitamin E and B vitamins. Raw ORGANIC spinach only has about 78 milligrams of magnesium per cup, but one cup of cooked ORGANIC spinach contains over 760 milligrams! That’s twice the amount from kale and collards, with only Swiss chard beating spinach as the top source from leafy greens.
Organic Pumpkin, sunflower, sesame, chia, hemp, and flax seeds are all great sources of magnesium. Seeds are also rich in anti-inflammatory fats and high in protein. Try sprinkling a couple of tablespoons of seeds onto salads, add them to a green smoothie, or toss a few in with some berries and organic Greek yogurt for a high protein, magnesium-rich breakfast or snack.
Organic Almonds are high in protein, vitamin E and the highest source of magnesium among all nuts, with cashews being a close second. Almonds contain roughly 76 milligrams per 23 nuts or 15 percent of your daily needs. For the best anti-inflammatory option, choose organic raw almonds (unroasted) or raw organic almond butter.
Bananas are often avoided for their high sugar content, but this fruit is actually the best source of magnesium among all common fruits. Bananas are also a great source of vitamin C, potassium, fiber, vitamin B6 and manganese. A medium-sized banana contains 32 milligrams of magnesium.
Magnesium, affordable and essential for your abundant good health.
