Im starting to nebulize magnesium chloride(Ancient Minerals) for sulfite sensitivity, find all the information on this site.
– “Missing Miracle Mineral”
“Deficiency of magnesium is associated with virtually every known disease: heart attacks, diabetes, depression, cancer, etc.”
– Dr. C Norman Shealy M.D., PhD.
Author of “Holy Water, Sacred Oil, The Fountain of Youth”
MgCl2: Possible Counter Indications and Warnings
“Without magnesium, muscle and nerve functions are compromised and energy diminished. We are operating with the power turned off. “
– Dr. Jerry Aikawa – The University of Colorado. Author of “Magnesium: Its Biological Significance.”
♦ People in N. America tend to consume too much calcium and sodium, and insufficient magnesium and potassium – This is often reflected in urine tests which show calcium and sodium being excreted while magnesium and potassium are being retained. All four of these minerals work together in the body. Problems arise when one or more of the minerals are deficient or when the minerals are out of balance with each other.
♦ So what’s so special about magnesium? . . .
When magnesium is deficient, which it is for many people, then replenishing the body’s stores of this important and busy mineral has a healing effect on a wide range of diseases as well as being able to rejuvenate the aging body.
Mg deficiency doubles your risk of dying!
A study published in the journal “Critical Care” found that a deficiency in magnesium makes you twice as likely to die as other people. About 70% of Americans are deficient in this critical mineral.
Why are we magnesium deficient?
Signs of Mg deficiency
In the USA, magnesium supplementation is dramatically under-utilized by conventional physicians.
How to supplement magnesium?
Mg has vital and essential functions in the body
For more details: Functions of Mg in the body
Maintains alkaline pH balance in the body
Next to potassium, Mg is the most abundant positively charged mineral buffer within the body’s cells.
Determines amount of energy produced by your body’s cells
Counteracts and regulates body’s use of calcium
Prevents abnormal calcification of tissues
Necessary for production of glutathione
A major antioxidant in the body
Promotes healthy functioning of nerves and muscles (includes the heart)
Activates more than 300 enzymes in the body
To metabolize blood sugars, proteins and carbohydrates
Needed for proper bone growth
Indirectly related to adequate calcium absorption
Defends body from infectious diseases, toxic chemicals, heavy metals
Controls uptake and release of many hormones, nutrients and neurotransmitters
Mg is a mineral needed by every cell in your body
Mg is the 4th most abundant mineral in the body; Most magnesium is found in intracellular fluid in bone, muscle and soft tissue in combination with calcium and phosphorus. Of the 20-30 g of Mg in our body, 60-65% of total body Mg is in our bones and teeth, ~25% in our muscle cells, and only 1% is in the blood.
The highest concentrations of Mg are in the heart and brain
Areas of considerable electrical activity
Mg Deficiency is involved in many Health Problems
(Since Mg has so many roles in the body)
For more details: Health Benefits of Magnesium
Auto immune disorders – all types
Cerebral Palsy – in children from Mg deficient mothers
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Congestive Heart Disease
Crooked teeth / narrow jaw – in children from Mg deficient mothers
Diabetes – Type I and II
Eating disorders – Bulimia, Anorexia
Gut disorders – e.g. peptic ulcer, Crohns disease, colitis, food allergy, GERD, gastroparesis;
Heart Disease – Arteriosclerosis, high cholesterol, high triglycerides
Heart Disease- in infants from Mg deficient mothers
High Blood Pressure
Impaired athletic performance
Infantile Seizure – in children from Mg deficient mothers
Lou Gehrig’s Disease
Migraines – including cluster type
Mitral Valve Prolapse
Muscle cramps – “Charlie Horses”
Muscle weakness, fatigue
Myopia – children from Mg deficient mothers
Obesity – especially from high carb diets
Osteoporosis – Just Mg reverses bone loss
Ob/Gyn – PMS, menstrual pain /irreg., infertility, preeclampsia, Estrogen dominance
PPH – Primary Pulmonary Hypertension
SIDS – Sudden Infant Death Syndrome
Metabolic Syndrome – insulin resistance
Thyroid disorders – low, high and auto-immune; low Mg reduces T4.
