We know that a lack
of magnesium underlies our epidemic of heart disease,
high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes
Minus magnesium, hearts beat irregularly; arteries
stiffen, contrict and clog; blood pressure rises;
blood tends to clot; muscles spasm; insulin grows
weaker and blood sugar jumps; bones lose strength;
and pain signals itensify.
Magnesium deficiency is also common in people with
depression and chronic pain. Major depression is
thought to be four times greater in people with
chronic back pain than in the general population.
It has been found that the rate of major depression
increased in linear fashion with greater pain severity.
Thus magnesium, when applied transdermally, since
good for both chronic back pain and depression seperately,
is the nutrition of choice for treating these sufferers...
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 will in
all likelihood benefit from magnesium chloride applied
Perhaps the biggest difference between oral and
transdermal supplementation of magnesium is seen
in the area of pain management.
Meaning the cause of the pain can often be traced
back to a magnesium deficiency. Trandermally applied
magnesium chloride easily belongs in the middle
of every pain program and can be used in conjunction
with other pain medications.
