Magnesium A Natural Way To Treat Constipation Insomnia and Muscle Tension
Magnesium is essential to life, period. Itjust is. It's one of the most prevalent minerals in the body. It's involved in over300 metabolic pathways in the body. You're never going to get adequate magnesium in amultivitamin. Magnesium is found in dark, leafy greens. Almonds are a really good sourceof magnesium. I have my patients supplement with magnesium because so many of the issuesthat I see are magnesiumrelated. Magnesium deficiency can cause leg cramps and migraines.Insomnia from a lack of magnesium is a really common problem. Muscle tension can be causedby lack of magnesium and lots of my patients have muscle tension. They're just workingtoo hard. Magnesium will help with all of
those things. So I really like Natural Calmbrand. This is available everywhere such as Whole Foods and other health food stores.Natural Calm magnesium is so easy because the one thing about magnesium is it's kindof a large molecule, so sometimes to get a good dose of pills, you kind of have to takelike, three or four pills and nobody likes takingâ€¦ I mean, some people are just pillpeople, and that's totally fine, but most of my patients are like, â€œNo more pills.â€�It's like, they totally are just, â€œNo more pills.â€� With Natural Calm magnesiumI have my patients do about a teaspoon in water before bed, and they just kind of worktheir way up in dosage. There are different
flavors. I think the raspberry lemonade tastesbetter. It kind of makes a little fizzy drink, but you could make it as a tea as well. Thisis just magnesium citrate. Some people are a little bit sensitive to magnesium if theytend towards diarrhea; if their stools are looser, magnesium can really accelerate that.On the flip side, if a person has had chronic constipation issues, this is typically theirMecca. And the other thing to say is that magnesium can drop blood pressure, so peoplewho are already really hypotensive, careful with taking too much at once. You really justwant to kind of break up your doses throughout the day, and you can add sea salt to the dietto kind of bring up the blood pressure if
the blood pressure's too low. But I thinkthat magnesium is really wonderful. The only other place to really caution with magnesiumis if people have kidney damage. It's actually really helpful for kidney stones, but if peoplehave kidney damage, like they're on dialysis, that is a place where they would need to checkwith their physician, but otherwise, I love magnesium across the board. You had a questionon magnesium. So her comment was that she had heard all of the beneficial health thingsabout magnesium, but she was also told that it really helps just keep the colon clean,and it does. I mean, if you dose up with magnesium the same way as if you dose up with vitaminC, you will really promote a looser stool.
The higher up you go, you will just see adirect effect, so it does help you clean out constantly. So in terms of a gentle detoxon a regular basis, magnesium will keep your bowels moving. Depending on your body typeI recommend taking 400 milligrams to 1,000 milligrams of magnesium per day. Start witha teaspoon of Natural Calm magnesium. Make sure you tolerate that, and then just workyour way up. So basically start with 150 milligrams and just kind of inch your way up and makesure you're tolerating the amount without diarrhea. Most of my patients take 600 milligramseasily in a sitting, but it's better to kind of start slow and work your way up.

Why You Should Stop Using Homeopathic Medicine
This is a true story. A few years ago I fell down and I hurt my ankle really badly. Like I had to call my mom and say quot;can you pick me up from my apartment cause I can't even walkquot;. And so she picked me up, took me back to my parents house. And when I was there, she gave me this medicine, this thing I was supposed to rub on my ankle And it was this ointment that she had used on me when I was a kid, and I got hurt. She'd rub it on me; it smelled really nice. And I remember it was, like, after she put that on me, I felt a lot better And so, here I was much older. But now she was rubbing this thing on my ankle and I'm thinking, oh this smells nice, this is gonna help me. And I'm looking at the bottle. And it said on there quot;homeopathicquot;.
That word was in that, on the label somewhere. And now I knew what that word meant. It basically meant that there was nothing in this ointment that was actually gonna make me feel better. Nothing. It was all in my head. It had always been in my head. But my mom, she genuinely believed it was going to help me. And for the longest time, so did I This sort of quot;medicinequot; exists for everything. Headaches, arthritis, even ADHD. And its all fake. Here's how homeopathy works. They take a supposed active ingredient; like a mineral or an herb. And then they mix it in to a lot of water. And they stir the thing.
And then they take that mixture, and take a little bit of it, and put it in even mor water. And mix it. And then they take a little bit of that and put it in even more water. And they keep doing this. Eventually the ratio of that actual ingredient is to the water is, like, a raindrop compared to all the oceans of the world. It's nothing. It's not enough to have an impact on you. In fact, the more diluted it is, the more useless it is. Some homeopaths will tell you that the water has a memory of the active ingredient. As it affects all the water that it touches. Which is just not true. Have you ever been to the beach and you see a kid, like a mile away peeing in the wateré And you're, like, that's disgusting. I'm glad it's happening there because it won't affect me over here. Now imagine just one drop of that.
And homeopaths are saying quot;it doesn't matter if it happens over a mile away. Its totally going to infest the water that you're inquot;. Get it. It just doesn't work that way. Now the people who sell this medicine to you, they make it look real. I mean, the packaging is really nice. The bottles look legitimate. The pills look like they're real pills. But it's just a placebo. A very expensive placebo by the way. People in the US spend about three billion dollars a year on this fake medicine. Now why do they buy ité Well, sometimes it's cheaper than real medicine. And people who take it will tell you, they swear to you, that it totally works.
Because they don't understand science. And they believe anecdotes over evidence. You could literally swallow a whole bottle of homeopathic sleeping pills and you would be OK. People have actually done this as a demonstration of how useless this quot;medicinequot; is. Yeah, you could try it yourself and you would see nothing would happen. Just make sure that it is actually homeopathic, otherwise you're in for a world of trouble. Now maybe you're thinking. quot;Who cares, if it makes you feel better, even in your head, isn't that the point. Isn't that OKé Why is this such a big dealéquot; The problem is that there are so many people out there who use homeopathic medicine instead of going to a real and getting real medicine, that could actually help them.
You know, my ankle was gonna get better over time. But what if the problem was a lot more seriousé If you're taking homeopathic medicine for an infection or cancer. Or swine flu; yeah, that actually happened. You're making the problem much worse And you're putting yourself in danger by not getting real help. You may be putting other people in danger. And you're throwing your money away too. Walgreens and CVS sell these medicines, by the way. Even though they don't actually help There have been people who started online petitions to get them to take this stuff off the shelves. But it hasn't worked.
