While researching a medical condition and side effects of drugs used in its treatment, I found a lot of interesting stuff including as I got into the symptoms the more references I found to Magnesium.
In particular I found an easy to read eBook by Dr. Carolyn Dean that got my attention enough that I've begun taking Magnesium.
Magnesium might the new Vitamin-D
If you don't know much about vitamin-D, the number of people having a deficiency is astronomical, and so are the conditions that present when a deficiency exists.
A big reason for the D deficiency near-epidemic includes a fear of sun exposure that has grown over the last decade or so. These days people are almost afraid to go out into the sunlight unless they are covered with clothing or super-duty sunscreen. The big fear is skin damage and even cancer.
Vitamin-D is made by the body when sunlight reaches the skin's surface. To know more about vitamin-D you can look at this I did a while back.
The big deal with Magnesium
The following will make you want to read this free eBook that is easy to understand and takes about ten minutes. The following are just 20 of the top conditions related to Magnesium deficiency as found in the eBook:
• Anxiety and panic attacks.
• Blood clots.
• Bowel disease induced by constipation.
• Cystitis and bladder spasms.
• Heart disease.
• Kidney stones.
• Musculoskeletal conditions including fibrositis; fibromyalgia; muscle spasms; eye twitches; cramps; and chronic neck and back pain.
• Nerve problems including migraines; muscle contractions; gastrointestinal spasmscalf,
foot and toe cramps; vertigo; and confusion.
• Premenstrual Syndrome; dysmenorrhea; infertility; premature contractions;
preeclampsia; and eclampsia in pregnancy.
• Raynaud’s syndrome.
• Sudden infant death syndrome.
• Tooth decay.
And those are just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. You should scan the eBook and look at some of the many symptoms of deficiency. This is good information to know, because a deficiency is reasonably cheap and easy to rectify using nothing more than a powdered supplement. So please take a few minutes and at least skim through the highlights of the eBook.
