The Magnesium Book
Magnesium: The all-rounder among minerals
Magnesium is called both the mineral of "inner peace" and the mineral of life energy. Like no other vital substance, it makes us resistant to stress, calms down our nervous system, and simultaneously gives us endurance and strength. From the point of view of orthomolecular medicine, magnesium is the most important mineral substance for humans to take, because it cannot be stored in the body like calcium, for example, but must be supplied daily. Magnesium plays an increasingly important role in our hectic life. How we feel, whether we can withstand daily challenges, how we deal with the daily stress, and whether we become ill have crucial dependency on the magnesium availability in our body.
Magnesium deficiency: Cause for a variety of ailments
Unfortunately our food contains ever less magnesium and our body needs ever more due to our unhealthy lifestyle. Magnesium deficiency is the result, and a variety of ailments can be attributed to it. It has always been fascinating to me to observe how a single injection of magnesium can so immediately alleviate symptoms and improve the general condition of my patients. More and more physicians recognize the importance of magnesium and recommend their patients increase their supply of this elemental mineral.
How's your magnesium level?
Do you want to know whether you are getting enough magnesium? Then take this short magnesium test:
- Are you often stressed?
- Do you often drink alcohol?
- Do you wake up often at night with cramps in your calves?
- Do you experience muscle tension after a workout or other physical activity?
- Do you suffer from muscle tension especially in the neck and shoulder area?
- Do you suffer from migraines?
- Are you diabetic?
- Do you often notice tingling or numbness in your arms or legs?
- Do you often eat fast food?
- Do you frequently drink cola drinks?
- Do you regularly take medications such as diuretics, ACE inhibitors, laxatives, or cardiac stimulants like Digitalis?
- Do you experience occasional eyelid twitches?
- Do you suffer from cramps during menstruation?
If you answered "Yes" to at least two of these questions, it may be a sign of magnesium deficiency.
A detailed magnesium deficiency test can be found in my new magnesium book.
