I tried everything for my hot flashes, except hormone replacement therapy, and nothing worked. I read something about magnesium and thought, at that point, anything was worth a try. As long as I take magnesium, no hot flashes. If I stop, a week or two later, hot flashes start. Anecdotal evidence, I know, but as long as it works, I’m using it.
In the present health care-medicine, we have too many rules. Magnesium is the Emperor. Zinc is the Monarch.HDL is the Guardian Angle(contuse&Chapman 2006). Niacin rules the Hypertension, and Hypertension is the MOTHER of all diseases known to mankind. Honestly, I am sick and tired of all those monarchs, who in final analysis turned to be naked emperor. Let us stick just to the principle. And the winner is? RECEPTORS. Stick to receptors and Thou Shall Have The Truth
Agree. As a former critical care nurse, I saw that patients needed supplemental Mg at admission and started taking a supplement. I too feel terrific, and no further “Carlie horses”.
Great personality coming through article!
@Becky Lehr I second LEF. Good intelligence at this level.
@Judy Taylor Another god way of getting Mg into the body is through Epsom Salt baths. I Cup of Epsom Salts in the bath water. It is absorbed through the skin thus bypassing the gut and diarrhea. Magnesium chloride is better than the sulfate but you will have to order that. The sulfate, which is the form in Epsom Salts on the other hand, is available in every grocery shop. Richard Crabbe MD
Dr, Lunberg, I totally praise the benefit of magnesium to cellular health. I’ve heard that magnesium maleate is the most absorbable. Which formulation do you take?
so much we don’t know. Magnesium is certainly important but what about other micronutrients and their interactions. While it probably will not cause harm to start supplements, I prefer improving the diet and address the root of the problem.
@Dr. Arnold Eiser Effects on brain also.
My wife (age 91 and I (age 95) have been taking Magnesium for two years now. We have not seen any change in our health or well being or “feeling Terrific.”
