Magnesium: A Natural Muscle Relaxer

"Magnesium - the cheapest little miracle cure" 
That's what I tell my patients. We don't hear enough about magnesium because it is so inexpensive. No one makes money advertising a health aid that cost only pennies a day, and it is a natural mineral - so it can't be patented. Plus, there are many expensive drugs that do the same things. Physicians in America are trained on the importance of magnesium in medical school, but in everyday practice, it is the pharmaceutical representatives that are spoon-feeding them the fairytale stories of drugs. Recommending vitamins cost more time and energy, and vitamin companies can't compete with the incentives and give-backs of the drug companies. Yet walk into a pharmacy in Europe, and it is filled with magnesium products.  When all else fails, magnesium is often given intravenously in American hospitals, but when the overwhelming majority of us are deficient in magnesium . . . why wait for a crisis?

Magnesium is a natural muscle relaxer. It is the most used mineral in our bodies. It is used in hundreds of reactions a day, and it is vital to the function of every cell in our body. Poor soil, poor diets and medications deplete our magnesium; therefore it is almost a universal deficiency. Some effects of magnesium deficiency are: Muscle Pain, Spasms, Cramps and Twitches, Neck Pain, Back Pain, Migraines, Anxiety, Depression, ADD/ADHD, Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Asthma, High Blood Pressure, Heart Palpitations and Arrhythmias, Heart Disease, OB/GYN problems, PMS, Osteoporosis, Kidney Stones, Hyperglycemia, Diabetes, Raynard's Syndrome, and Parkinson's Disease. Take 250 – 500mg Magnesium Complex before bed, and sleep like a baby!  Magnesium also acts as a natural detoxifier. It is crucial for the removal of toxins from our bodies. (Just be careful: At high doses, it acts as a natural laxative!)  Even though magnesium may seem like a miracle cure - it is just replenishing a deficiency, and the body does the rest.  A balanced body is a healthy body!
