Magnesium Deficiency

Published by Darlene Long · August 20, 2014 at 8:23pm

Dr. Norman Shealy’s statements, “Every known illness is associated with a magnesium deficiency” and that, “magnesium is the most critical mineral required for electrical stability of every cell in the body. A magnesium deficiency may be responsible for more diseases than any other nutrient.” The truth he states exposes a gapping hole in modern medicine that explains a good deal about iatrogenic death and disease. Because magnesium deficiency is largely overlooked, millions of Americans suffer needlessly or are having their symptoms treated with expensive drugs when they could be cured with magnesium supplementation.

Magnesium is needed by every cell in the body including those of the brain. It is one of the most important minerals when considering supplementation because of its vital role in hundreds of enzyme systems and functions related to reactions in cell metabolism, as well as being essential for the synthesis of proteins, for the utilization of fats and carbohydrates. Magnesium is needed not only for the production of specific detoxification enzymes but is also important for energy production related to cell detoxification. A magnesium deficiency can affect virtually every system of the body.

Few people are aware of the enormous role magnesium plays in our bodies. Magnesium is by far the most important mineral in the body. After oxygen, water, and basic food, magnesium may be the most important element needed by our bodies; vitally important, yet hardly known. It is more important than calcium, potassium or sodium and regulates all three of them. Millions suffer daily from magnesium deficiency without even knowing it.

The first symptoms of deficiency can be subtle – as most magnesium is stored in the tissues, leg cramps, foot pain, or muscle ‘twitches’ can be the first sign. Other early signs of deficiency include loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, and weakness. As magnesium deficiency worsens, numbness, tingling, seizures, personality changes, abnormal heart rhythms, and coronary spasms can occur.

Dr. Sidney Baker. “Magnesium deficiency can affect virtually every organ system of the body. With regard to skeletal muscle, one may experience twitches, cramps, muscle tension, muscle soreness, including back aches, neck pain, tension headaches and jaw joint (or TMJ) dysfunction. Also, one may experience chest tightness or a peculiar sensation that he can’t take a deep breath. Sometimes a person may sigh a lot.”

“Symptoms involving impaired contraction of smooth muscles include constipation; urinary spasms; menstrual cramps; difficulty swallowing or a lump in the throat-especially provoked by eating sugar; photophobia, especially difficulty adjusting to oncoming bright headlights in the absence of eye disease; and loud noise sensitivity from stapedius muscle tension in the ear.”

“Other symptoms and signs of magnesium deficiency and discuss laboratory testing for this common condition. Continuing with the symptoms of magnesium deficiency, the central nervous system is markedly affected. Symptoms include insomnia, anxiety, hyperactivity and restlessness with constant movement, panic attacks, agoraphobia, and premenstrual irritability. Magnesium deficiency symptoms involving the peripheral nervous system include numbness, tingling, and other abnormal sensations, such as zips, zaps and vibratory sensations.”

“Symptoms or signs of the cardiovascular system include palpitations, heart arrhythmias, and angina due to spasms of the coronary arteries, high blood pressure and mitral valve prolapse. Be aware that not all of the symptoms need to be present to presume magnesium deficiency; but, many of them often occur together. For example, people with mitral valve prolapse frequently have palpitations, anxiety, panic attacks and premenstrual symptoms. People with magnesium deficiency often seem to be “uptight.” Other general symptoms include a salt craving, both carbohydrate craving and carbohydrate intolerance, especially of chocolate, and breast tenderness.”

Signs of severe magnesium deficiency include:

  • Extreme thirst
  • Extreme hunger
  • Frequent urination
  • Sores or bruises that heal slowly
  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Blurry vision that changes from day to day
  • Unusual tiredness or drowsiness
  • Tingling or numbness in the hands or feet
  • Frequent or recurring skin, gum, bladder or vaginal yeast infections

But wait a minute, aren’t those the same symptoms for diabetes? Many people have diabetes for about 5 years before they show strong symptoms. By that time, some people already have eye, kidney, gum or nerve damage caused by the deteriorating condition of their cells due to insulin resistance and magnesium deficiency. Dump some mercury and arsenic on the mixture of etiologies and pronto we have the disease condition we call diabetes.

Magnesium deficiency is synonymous with diabetes and is at the root of many if not all cardiovascular problems.

Magnesium deficiency is a predictor of diabetes and heart disease both; diabetics both need more magnesium and lose more magnesium than most people. In two new studies, in both men and women, those who consumed the most magnesium in their diet were least likely to develop type 2 diabetes, according to a report in the January 2006 issue of the journal Diabetes Care. Until now, very few large studies have directly examined the long-term effects of dietary magnesium on diabetes. Dr. Simin Liu of the Harvard Medical School and School of Public Health in Boston says, “Our studies provided some direct evidence that greater intake of dietary magnesium may have a long-term protective effect on lowering risk,” said Liu, who was involved in both studies.

Autism and Magnesium Deficiency

When dealing with autism spectrum and other neurological disorders in children it is important to know the signs of low magnesium: restless, can’t keep still, body rocking, grinding teeth, hiccups, noise sensitive, poor attention span, poor concentration, irritable, aggressive, ready to explode, easily stressed. When it comes to children today we need to assume a large magnesium deficiency for several reasons.

1) The foods they are eating are stripped of magnesium because foods in general, as we shall see below are declining in mineral content in an alarming way.

2) The foods many children eat are highly processed junk foods that do not provide real nutrition to the body.

3) Because most children on the spectrum are not absorbing the minerals they need even when present in the gut. Magnesium absorption is dependent on intestinal health, which is compromised totally in leaky gut syndromes and other intestinal problems that the majority of autism syndrome disorders.

Metabolic Syndrome

 Causes of Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is believed to develop due to insulin resistance. Insulin is a hormone that is produced by the pancreas (an organ located near stomach). It helps blood sugar enter cells, where it is used for energy. With insulin resistance, the body fails to recognize the insulin that is produced, causing the sugar to accumulate in the blood instead of being absorbed into other cells. Because blood sugar levels remain high, the pancreas keeps producing more and more insulin, leading to high insulin levels. While blood sugar levels are not high enough to be classified as diabetes, they do increase the risk of developing serious health problems

Scientists know that being overweight and inactive has a significantly contributed to persons developing metabolic syndrome. They are not certain why insulin resistance develops but they believe it may be partly inherited.

In an article written by Liaw (2008), on 14th January, 2008, he said that Native Americans are 2 to 3 times more likely than Chinese to contract Type II diabetes, and Asians on the whole are about twice as likely as Caucasians to get it.

Symptoms and Complications of Metabolic Syndrome

A person has metabolic syndrome when they have a combination of three or more certain health risks which include:

* high blood pressure

* high blood sugar levels

* excess body weight

* low levels of “good” cholesterol (HDL)

* high levels of triglycerides (a type of fat found in the blood)

The risk increases dramatically when a person has a combination of theses symptoms. The risk is of developing diabetes, heart disease and stroke.

Other major risk factors that may lead to the development of metabolic syndrome include:

* age (the risk of metabolic syndrome increases as you get older)

* a family history of type 2 diabetes

* other medical conditions including high blood pressure, heart or blood vessel disease, and polycystic ovarian syndrome (a condition where a woman’s body produces too much male hormones)

A Global Health Crisis

Approximately one-quarter of Canadians have this condition, although the rate is higher for certain groups of people. For example, people of First Nations and South Asian descent have higher rates of metabolic syndrome than Caucasians.

Metabolic syndrome has reached near epidemic proportions in the U.S.

In China, obesity—which has become the nation’s newest health risk —is the principal reason for the increased prevalence of the metabolic syndrome . Statistically, being underweight is one of the major causes of death in rural China , however, paradoxically, being overweight is one of the major concerns in urban China .

The Silent Killer

Although you may not notice any changes in the way you feel, having metabolic syndrome dramatically increases the risk of serious health problems including diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. In fact, the more health risks you have, the more likely you are to develop these conditions.

The Fountain of Youth

What is the secret to youthfulness and vitality?

We have within us all the Human Growth Hormone that is generated by our Livers. Our Hypothalimus works to trigger the pituitary to produce it. The amount of HGH in our systems increases from birth to a high point at age 21 where the level is at 10mg/dl, This level then decreases as we get older in years so that by the time we are 50 you will have a level of 2mg/dl. There are 28,000 studies done on this. Enjuvenate contains the amino acids your body requires to make Glutathione.

What happens to you as you age?

At the age of 21, your Human Growth Hormone or HGH is at it’s peak. Your bone plates harden off and growth stops. As the levels of HGH decline over the years, your organs begin to shrink. If you eat a hig fat diet you will produce less and less HGH. Stress will also cause the HGH levels to decline.

It has been proven that people with Diabetes have a lower level of HGH.

What will Enjuvenate do for you?

In July, 1990 , Dr Rudman published a double blinded placebo study that shows Enjuvenate reduces the aging process by 10-20 years.

The study also showed increases in immune function , increases in Glutathione, labido, longevity.

Enjuvenate raises the HGH levels in your body which can facilitate fat loss by 70% in three months.  It creates more lean body tissue ( Now what do you think could be the result if you combine this with Unicity Balance ? ? ? ? )

The Pharmaceutical / Supplement Debate

Is it not time that we stop relying so heavily on Pharmaceuticals?   We are creating our own Hell on Earth  with our demands on the Medical system and by continuing with our own bad habits.There are absolute alternatives that most of us do not understand or embrace.

Pharmaceutical companies will bend over backwards to create a drug for a condition. Even though there are natural alternatives clinically proven, in the SAME research facilities to be more effective, billions of dollars are spent to find a drug alternative that is known to cause significant side-effects.  Financial gain is sustaining the momentum on this practice, however we are the ones creating the demand for it by not taking proper care!  Our Medical facilities cannot keep up with the demands we place on them either!

Medical professionals are not taught an overwhelming amount of nutrition. They understand how treat a condition with pharmaceuticals, and they are, for the most part,  bound to follow that training.

The popularity of dietary supplements has created a great deal of research on the interactions of drugs and supplements.

Due to a large rapidly aging population relying on pharmaceutical products, it is found by some of the research, there is a monumental risk that these individuals will suffer nutritional inadequacies, or worse, nutritional deficiencies induced by the use of pharmaceuticals.  The impact of waste from these products flushing through our bodies and down the drain, are another contributing factor to global environmental catastrophes and global epidemic health problems.

Another example was the delayed publishing the news of the radioactive spill of Tritium at the Automic Energy Canada,Chalk River nuclear facility in December.  It is well known that this facility is in desperate need of upgrade for public safety, however this plant generates 70% of the global supply of isotopes used for Cancer radiation and medical diagnostics.  Some are downplaying it as “just a minor amount”, not to worry.

But , consider that a great deal of cancers would not occur if we had proper nutrition.  We also need to reduce our exposures to harmful elements.  We all know this, but were are running our routines, no time to change gears.  It’s somebody else’s problem, somebody else’s fault.  Are we really helpless to  effect change?

Calcium de Glucarte is a formulation which has given several Cancer patients years of life and a quality of life.  Calcium D-Glucarate’s effect is to favor the body’s natural defense mechanism for eliminating carcinogens thus preventing many forms of cancer, including lung, breast, prostate, and colon. It was proven in several studies done at the MD Anderson Cancer Clinic in Houston , Texas. There are no toxic effects from taking D-Glucararate.  I have heard of many people gaining several years of quality life using this. How many people have ever heard of this ?    Do you wonder why ?

Would there not be less of a demand for the nuclear facility in Chalk River and  those isotopes if we were to personally place more focus on managing our health and environment a bit better?

Statins are globally used to assist the Cardiovascular epidemic reduce cholesterol.  This is 40 billion industry in North America. The Statins are known reduce CoQ10 in your body- this is extremely important for heart health. As CoQ10 decreases people develop congestive heart failure.

Our bodies are not chemical processing plants.  I doubt that evolution is going to have us caught up to that any time soon either! Why are we, marching so steadfastly to that Pharmaceutical pit here in North America?  Heart disease is 80% preventable, and yet it is the leading cause of death globally.  .

Diuretics used to decrease the volumes of salt and or water in our bodies to reduce blood pressure.  They do this very effectively.  The trade-off is depletion of the essential minerals magnesium and potassium, and  the Vitamin-B , thiamin responsible for neuro-function and carbohydrate metabolism.

Metabolismis important!!  We have an epidemic of Obesity epidemic to the point where we are thinking it might just be a good idea to get those fat kids on Statins… ?We have solid science on natural alternatives that absolutely work.Why is that not part of the medical regiment?

Pharmaceuticals provide important benefits to patients with medical problems but consumers should beware of the potential depletion of nutrients associated with their use.

We have absolute solid science on many natural alternatives that address serious conditions.  Pharmaceuticals provide important benefits to patients with medical problems.  To learn more on Calcium D-Glucarate go to the link above WELLNESS, WOMEN’s Health – Women’s Formula Plus,      MEN’s HEALTH- Men’s Formula Plus. For further information on Bios Life, the only clinically proven natural alternative for Statin Drugs see HEALTH SOLUTIONS, Read about Bios Life, read about the Heart.

I believe that the responsibility is ours to pay attention to our lifestyle alternatives.  We are running out of time!
