25 Most Common Health Conditions & How Magnesium Salts Can Help
“Magnesium at Home” gives a brief overview of the 25 most common health conditions which can be improved by using this vital mineral, especially transdermally.
Magnesium is rightly called the miracle mineral. There are few nutrients that attract so much attention and research. It takes part in over 300 biochemical reactions in the body and helps to maintain:
- Healthy muscle and nerve function
- Steady heart rhythm
- Normal blood pressure
- Strong bones
- Healthy teeth
- Optimal blood sugar level.
It also plays a vital role in preventing and treating:
- Heart disease
- Type 2 diabetes
- Hormonal disorders
- Hay fever
- Addictions to drugs and alcohol
- Pain & inflammation.
Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body. About half of the total body magnesium is found in bones. The other half is found mostly inside cells of body tissues and organs. Only 1% of magnesium is found in the blood where it plays a vital role, so the body works very hard to keep the blood magnesium levels constant.
According to nutritionists, an average adult needs 200mg more magnesium per day than is obtained from a diet. The fact is, that dietary magnesium is not sufficient in providing the body with this important mineral.
The levels of magnesium in the body are often deficient due to a number of factors, such as stress – physical and mental, certain medications (e.g. insulin, diuretics, some asthma medications, birth control pills, corticosteroids), extreme physical training, chemical toxins getting into the body from the environment, excessive intake of sodium chloride (table salt), sugar, caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, cocaine, fizzy drinks (especially colas), intense sweating, diarrhoea, etc. Age is another factor that plays a major role in magnesium deficiency. Our tissues get calcified as we age due to magnesium deficiency among other reasons.
The fastest way to supplement magnesium is by using it transdermally, through the skin. This book shows how to do it at home safely in order to help alleviate most common health issues. It is a practical self-help guide that can help anyone interested in using therapeutic properties of this wonderful mineral.
About the author
My name is Galina St George. I am a Natural Health Practitioner with over 20 years of experience using multiple modalities to help my clients. My special interest is in researching healing properties of muds, salts, clays, zeolite and diatomaceous earth.
I became interested in minerals when I went to see my family in Russia. My mum introduced me to Blue Cambrian Clay and I started reading about it. I found out that clays have been used since life began on Earth both by humans and animals, with remarkable results.
This discovery inspired me to learn about other minerals, especially magnesium salts. I now write about minerals used in healing, teach workshops and create and teach courses both to my own students and to students at a London college.
