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.

Hey loves! I have a bit of a special tutorial foryou today. Something that I have never filmed before. A few weeks ago, I asked you on myInstagram what tutorials you'd like to see next and so many of you said morning routine. SoI thought : ' Why not!'

Does it happen toyou that during the week when you have to get up, you would give everything for an extra10 minutes sleep, but on the weekends when
you have no pressure to get up you wake upsuper earlyé Well it happens to me a lot. And since I am awake, I decided to get upand make the most from this morning and you guys are coming with me. First I head to thebathroom to brush my teeth and wash my face. My skin is super thin, sensitive and rosaceaprone. Warm water usually makes me flare up a lot. Although it calms down right after.On top of that my face is very dry so I have to put on some moisturizer. Now it's timefor the food! On the weekends I like to work out in the morning so I usually have a properbreakfast after. But I have to eat a little something to give me energy for the workout,so today I'll make myself a smoothie. I just
grabbed whatever fruit I have in my fridgeand some milk. I've found raspberries, strawberries and a banana. I really love making smoothiesbecause they are literally done in seconds and they taste delicious! And they are alsohealthy, which is a bonus. While sipping on my smoothie I like to check emails, answeryour comments and watch some YouTube tutorials. Oh and by the way, I actually decorated this jarmyself and I think it looks so pretty! Here's how you do it: Pour some glue in a container I am makingthree different colors, so I need three glasses. Then simply color your glue using acrylicpaint or food coloring. Give it a nice stir
and voila! You have a glue paint which youcan use to decorate any kind of material. Now you can put the paint into a squeeze tubeor a plastic bag and make a knot. This way you'll be able to draw with the paint justlike when you're decorating the cake. But seriously, how amazing are these colors. Asyou may have noticed in my tutorials : I do have a tiny neon obsession at the moment. Brightcolors just make me so happy! Simply cut away a tiny piece of bag's corner and you can startdrawing. I decided to make colorful hearts all over this jar. Normally, I use my jarto drink but this can be a beautiful decorating piece too. Use it for pencil holders on your desk,as a vase for flowers, whatever you wish.
When you're done just let it dry for a fewhours and you have the most beautiful jar ever! Oh and if you want you can just buythese glass paints and create super cool designs on your jars.
