The U.S. Department of Agriculture says that about 60% of adults in the United States do not consume the estimated average requirement for magnesium.
What they don’t tell us is that this 60%
is based on minimum daily estimates set by the Department of
Agriculture are set terribly low, so actually the number is much
higher. In the best of times magnesium intake from white processed
foods is on the level of starvation of this precious and very
necessary mineral. Most Americans are actually malnourished and
diseased because of it and because of the toxic loads they carry in
their cells and blood.
Many professionals feel this to be a
bare minimum. Some would say that 1,000 mg is probably more in the
range of what most people need due to stress (measured by
levels) causing magnesium to be dumped into the sweat in increasing
quantities. Actually there are all kinds of
cellular stresses that
drive down magnesium levels including chemical stress.
Toxicities actually increase as magnesium levels fall. In plain language that means we have more allergic reactions, come down with the flu more often (never listen or trust anything the World Health Organizations says about the flu for most cases are actually not caused by a virus but by chemical stress), suffer from diabetes (diabetes is largely a result of these toxic stresses combined with overall malnutrition especially magnesium deficiency).
the Ultimate Heart
Medicine for you will always see deficient cellular magnesium in
each and every case of heart disease, stroke, cancer and
Oral supplementation is chancy at best because high dosages loosen the intestines. My book Transdermal Magnesium Therapy was a landmark medical text in that it presented what is commonly known as magnesium oil and how it can be applied directly to the skin or put into medical baths for transdermal absorption.
The second edition of this in print text
will be out in late November.
Mg deficiency increases susceptibility
Recently the British Journal of Psychiatry published that people with a diet heavy in processed food had a 58% higher risk of depression.
What they don’t say is that the reason for the depression was lack of dietary magnesium in such diets and that depression can easily and best be treated with magnesium. What they do say is that a “whole food” diet protects against depression because of the combined effect of consuming nutrients from lots of different types of food, rather than the effect of one single nutrient.
Though there is a glint of truth to this
statement it hides the well-researched reality that it is magnesium
levels that provide the key to our mental and emotional states.
According to a recent poll by Gallup Americans are downing more booze - 67% of Americans report that they consume alcohol on a regular basis. Increased alcoholic intake, which happens frequently in times of stress for some people, depletes magnesium in our bodies. Alcohol increases urinary magnesium excretion by as much as 260% above baseline values; this occurs within minutes of ingestion.
Often by increasing magnesium, the
perceived need for alcohol decreases while some of the depression
and anxiety are alleviated.
Research published in the American Journal of Epidemiology
in 2002 shows that when the diets of
2,566 children ages 11-19 were studied,
less than 14% of boys and 12% of girls
had adequate intakes of magnesium.
We can actually see the hate and foul viciousness of some of the richest people and companies on earth in this story because the truth and facts about magnesium are well known by researchers around the world.
Magnesium is one of the most well studied nutrients and smart doctors reach for it quickly for patients suffering from heart attacks or strokes. We would have an entirely different world if governments got behind magnesium supplementation. People would be healthier and happier, would miss less days of work, would be less stressed and would be able to work harder and enjoy life more. We would also cut the world’s medical bill down by a trillion or two dollars.
This would upset people like
and others like him who want to
cut population not increase it.
Since the arrival of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors antidepressants (SSRIs) and atypical antipsychotics on the market, countless studies have shown the so-called “new generation” of psychiatric drugs to be ineffective and dangerous but exceptionally profitable.
There is no such thing as a substitute
for the mineral magnesium.
For these two classes of drugs combined, sales went from $500 million in 1986 to nearly $20 billion in 2004, a 40-fold increase, according to Robert Whitaker, best-selling author of Mad in America.
And God only knows how high these
numbers have climbed to in the year 2010 when stress, mental and
emotional disturbances are going off the charts.
Despite a dramatic increase in treatment
of psychiatric disorders
Police Chief Nannette H. Hegerty of Milwaukee said a few years ago that,
While arguments have always made up a large number of homicides, the police say the trigger point now comes faster.
In robberies, Milwaukee’s Chief Hegerty said,
A marginal deficiency can easily be transformed into a more significant problem when stressful events trigger additional magnesium loss. In the extreme situations stressful events trigger sudden drops of serum magnesium leading to cardiac arrest.
Even a mild deficiency of magnesium can cause,
In recent years we’ve seen an increase of all kinds of weird violence as magnesium levels are driven lower and lower.
every week now we hear reports of people walking into schools in
China stabbing teachers and children and in America also mass
killings are slaughtering people and there they hide the fact that
most of these assaulters are on pharmaceutical medications that
drive their magnesium levels to the bottom.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has recommended drinking water containing 25-50 mg of magnesium (Mg) per liter to prevent deaths from heart attack and stroke. American bottled water contains about 5 mg of Mg per liter, well below the 20 mg/l in the rest of the world’s bottled water, according to the WHO.
If the WHO was really interested in
helping Americans, like they want to help with their dangerous
vaccines, they would make sure that the government implemented these
kinds of recommendations that would save countless lives.
Magnesium deficiency causes serotonin
The Department of Family Medicine, Pomeranian Medical Academy, states that dietetic factors can play a significant role in the origin of ADHD and that magnesium deficiency can result in disruptive behaviors.
Even a mild deficiency of magnesium can cause sensitiveness to noise, nervousness, irritability, mental depression, confusion, twitching, trembling, apprehension, and insomnia. A significant number of researchers have shown that as much as 60-90% of illnesses are directly caused or exacerbated by stress.
And in fact, numerous studies have shown
that stress is related to major illnesses like heart disease, high
blood pressure, and diabetes.
We now know that this physiological
“stress response” involves hormones and inflammatory chemicals that
can foster everything from headaches to heart attacks in overdose.
Observational and experimental studies have shown an association between magnesium and aggression,,,,, anxiety,,, ADHD,,,, bipolar disorder,, depression,,,, and schizophrenia.,,,
So you tell me who the real terrorists
are? The sea is full of magnesium and it is easily sourced and
applied orally, transdermally, through IVs and even nebulized
directly into the lungs.
