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.
Deep Sleep and The Bedwetter Bed Wetting Alarm Tips
Hi, I'm Karen from Anzacare the manufacturerof Dri Sleeper bedwetting alarms and Urosensers. I'm often asked for help by parents whosechildren are deepsleepers. These children can sleep right through the bedwetting alarmeven though it wakes the rest of the family. If this is a problem your child has then thistutorial will give you some strategies to help him or her respond to the alarm in their sleep.The most important thing to do is to practice what your child needs to do when the alarmtriggers before they go to bed. So, before your child settles down to go sleep, havehim or her turn on the alarm, then lie in bed and pretend to be asleep. Take the Urosenserand trigger it by putting something metal
like a stainless steel knife across the sensingstrips. Ask your child to get up, turn off the alarm, and then go to the bathroom andpretend to go to the toilet. When they come back to bed, make sure they turn the alarmon again. Practice this three or four times so that your child's brain is more ready torespond when they hear the alarm during the night. In the first few weeks you will probablyneed to get up when the alarm triggers to make sure your child wakes up and followsthe bedwetting routine. If you have to wake your child, do it gently by wiping his orher face with a damp cloth. It's important that your child remembers hearing the alarmand going to the toilet. One way to do this
is to give them a code word which you askthem to repeat to you the next morning. Another thing your child could practice during theday is holding the urine flow when they go to the toilet. So when your child needs togo to the bathroom, go with them and take the alarm. Trigger it while they are goingto the toilet and ask them to try and stop the urine mid flow. This can help your childholt the bedwetting when the alarm triggers during the night. It is really worth whileto support and encourage your child right through their bedwetting training. Stayingdry or responding to the alarm, should be a cause for celebration.
Childrens Bedwetting Deep Sleep Bedwetting
My name is Randy Hyde and I have Amywith me, we are going to talk about physiological basis or deep sleeping with nocturnal Enuresisor bed wetting. Randy I noticed that some of my children sleep a lot more deeply thansome of the others. Is that part of the problemé It really is. We all naturally have differentlevels of depth when we sleep. But for Enuretic kids, that's the cause for bed wetting, isthey sleep so deeply the brain doesn't pick up the signal from the bladder, it's quot;Hey,it's time to wake up and go the bathroom!quot; But, what happens as a child gets older, theirsleep lightens. We all lighten. We sleep less deep as we get older. That's why a lot ofkids have a tendency to outgrow bed wetting.
But, you know, that can be pretty late aftera lot of emotional damage and psychological damage can be done because it's hard on kids.Very hard. I was a chief psychologist at a inpatient for children. And a lotof these kids struggled with Enuresis. Part of the treatment. Part, not exclusive, butpart of the treatment is having a bell pad. An alarm pad where, if a child were to weta hundred decibel alarm would go off. Now, what's interesting about this is one nightI was walking down the hall, eleven o'clock at night, just trying to be quiet so I wouldn'twake anyone up, and one of these pads went off. A hundred decibels. Man, you had to peelme off the ceiling. I'm like, quot;Ahhhhhh!quot; I
was freaking out! This kid slept through thatalarm. As I have treated Enuresis, I have noticed, the majority of kids never wake upwith a hundred decibel alarm. In fact, those pads aren't made for the child, they're madefor the parent to help with the child. But we can get into that more as we talk abouttreatment.
