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.
History of Cincinnati Music Part 2
Alright, so, it's 7:02, shall we go aheadand do ité Welcome everyone, thanks for coming tonight, I'm Uncle Dave Lewis and the subjectof tonight's talk, which is a series of talks about music history in Cincinnati, deals withthe Rodeheaver Record Company's visit to Cincinnati in 1921. We have exhibits at either end ofthe speaking area. Print over here, and some discs over there. Feel free to check out theexhibits. You can interrupt me, too, if you like. Not right now, as I'm doing the acknowledgments.I would like to send out my thanks to Steve and Cassie Kemple, the Popular Library hereat the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, the folks at the online staff herefor helping me to get a grip on some of the
troubles researching the Cincinnati Enquireronline through the library. The staff at Magazines and Newspapers, the Association of RecordedSound Collections, Tim Brooks, who is a former president of ARSC that keeps a pretty closeeye on the developments in this project, the late Richard Warren, who was an ARSC officerand once of the Yale sound recordings library, who issued me the grant to research this topicyears ago. Carl Forbes and Steve Grill, of the Reneker Museum in Winona Lake, Indiana,Bill Firstenberger, who was the former curator of the now closed Billy Sunday Museum in WinonaLake, and my collaborators, Reverend Kevin Mungams of Chicago and Keith Larson of AnnArbor, Michigan and, another collaborator,
the late Mike Montgomery of Southfield Michigan,and last but not least, my late wife Allison Lewis, who was not a big Homer Rodeheaverfan, we went back and forth to Winona Late together quite a few times, and there wasa restaurant she liked there, so that was okay, thank you for putting up with that,Allison. Last time we got together we discussed the impact of Cincinnati and Cincinnatianson the rise of American sacred vernacular hymnody, or gospel music, in the last halfof the 19th century. While this month's subject is perhaps not so consequential as last month'swas, it allows us to peer back through a window into time in Cincinnati in which everythingwas different. And to directly access that
time through the miracle of recordings. I'mtalking about gospel recording pioneer Homer Rodeheaver, his trip to Cincinnati in thespring of 1921. You won't find much about this in established histories, particularlyas I am the chief cook and bottle washer of research in this area, and was the first todiscover that it happened at all. A fair amount of what you will hear tonight will be thefirst time in public that some of this information has been aired out. Next slide please. Thisis a, there are actual photographs of the Ohio Phonograph Company offices and structures,but this is a generic unknown location in the 1890s of a court phonograph parlor, andno, I have no idea what the gentleman with
the bicycle is doing inside.laughter In order to provide context, however, Indeedto recap some information about the beginnings of recording in Cincinnati, and as we're dealingin detail in a future program, I'm not gonna give too much away tonight, but even thoughwe don't think of Cincinnati as being a place where recording was being done until afterthe second world war, Cincinnati was actually one of the first places in the world wherecommercial recordings were being made. Thomas Edison invented the phonograph in 1877, buthe did not exploit it right away. It wasn't until Alexander Graham Bell's Volta Labs inWashington D.C., began to make patentable
improvements to the phonograph in the mid1880s that the proverbial fire was lit to Edison' feet in that regard. Edison and Volta'spatents were pooled and in 1889 the North American Phonograph Company was established.This business model divided the United States into regional territories where phonographinterests would be promoted and controlled by local entrepreneurs. The first of theselocal companies to incorporate was founded in April 1889 in Cincinnati as the Ohio PhonographCompany. North American, however the parent, was built on a house of cards and collapsedamidst a flurry of lawsuits in 1896. Next slide please. IN 1897 Ohio Phonograph waspurchased from the receivers index by the
