My Experiences With Magnesium Deficiency And How I Solved It!

Good afternoon radical readers! Today I’m going to share my experience with having a magnesium deficiency. About two weeks ago I realized that my body just wasn’t reacting as rosy as it usually does. For starters, I have been extremely stressed, nervous, and having lots of painful cramps and muscle tension. As someone who suffers from a TMJ disorder my jaw is always hurting me but the pain has been extremely painful these last two weeks that I knew something was off. After doing some research and happily stumbling upon a water-soluble magnesium powder called Natural Calm in an herbal store I realized that Magnesium is my new pain-free best friend! After ten minutes of just taking this powder in a glass of water half of my muscle tension in my entire body disappeared. Magnesium really is a MIRACLE! The ideal amount of daily intake of Magnesium for an adult leading an active life is approximately 2,000 milligrams. If you get the packets of the Natural Calm magnesium powder you would need to take 8 packets a day because each packet equals 255 mg of magnesium. I suggest getting the bottle of Natural Calm instead of the packets. As I’m writing this I’m drinking my second packet of Natural Calm and I feel so happy, tension free, energetic, and rosy! 🙂 

Here is what Natural Calm looks like:

What’s so magnificent about magnesium?

Magnesium is a cofactor in more than 300 enzyme systems that regulate diverse biochemical reactions in the body, including protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, blood glucose control, and blood pressure regulation. Magnesium is required for energy production, oxidative phosphorylation, and glycolysis. It contributes to the structural development of bone and is required for the synthesis of DNA, RNA, and the antioxidant glutathione. Magnesium also plays a role in the active transport of calcium and potassium ions across cell membranes, a process that is important to nerve impulse conduction, muscle contraction, and normal heart rhythm (Nation Institutes Of Health para 1). 

Here are some more side effects of having magnesium deficiency? 

Because magnesium is required for hundreds of enzymatic reactions (enzymes are protein molecules that stimulate every chemical reaction in the body), deficiency can cause a wide variety of symptoms, such as

  • Low energy
  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • PMS and hormonal imbalances
  • Inability to sleep
  • Weakening bones
  • Muscle tension, spasms & cramps
  • Abnormal heart rhythms
  • Headaches
  • Anxiousness
  • Nervousness
  • Irritability

Also, early signs of magnesium deficiency include loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, and weakness. As magnesium deficiency worsens, numbness, tingling, muscle contractions and cramps, seizures, personality changes, abnormal heart rhythms, and coronary spasms can occur. Severe magnesium deficiency can result in hypocalcemia or hypokalemia (low serum calcium or potassium levels, respectively) because mineral homeostasis is disrupted.

The top ten foods sources highest in Magnesium are:
  1. Kelp
  2. Almonds
  3. Cashews
  4.  Molasses
  5. Buckwheat
  6. Brazil nuts
  7. Dulse
  8. Filberts
  9. Millet
  10. Pecans
It’s important to soak nuts for twelve hours to activate them, then rinse them, which releases enzyme inhibitors, phytic acid. Otherwise, eating nuts may increase Magnesium levels but decrease Zinc levels, which is also another essential mineral.
Below is a video you must watch:
Another way to take Magnesium is topically applying it on the body especially on the feet (where everything is best absorbed). If you are suffering from chronic/acute pain as a Licensed Massage Therapist I suggest scheduling for a massage and asking if your MT could use Magnesium oil during the massage. You will feel splendid afterwords! If you want to learn more about Magnesium oil watch this video below:
Thank you for reading and I hope you all have a magnificent day!
Stay Rosy!

Wizardly Weight Lose: Lose It Like A Wizard!

No offense dude but you need some serious cleansing!

Alright, your sick of being a fat, plump, or a non toned wizard. I get it…I feel ya! Since I’ve been a slacking nugget these days I decided to pick up wizardly qualities that I left behind and I’m beginning to venture on my health adventure once again. So if you’re interested in losing weight like a wicked wizard please read on:

1. Do a candida cleanse! Candida is a type of yeast found in everybody’s gut, and it aids in digestion. However, for a lot of people, depending on their diet and health, they can suffer Candida overgrowth. The symptoms of candida overgrowth is psoriasis, itchy skin, irritability and mood swings, intense sugar cravings, headaches and shaking and/or cold sweats when hungry, dizziness. I know I have it! I have been having itchy skin, I get dizzy sometimes, and I have mood swings. I’m done with this! I’m gonna fix my diet for once and for all and solve this unnecessary problem! On a candida diet you should avoid these foods: dairy, grains, fruits, sugar, molds, fungus. The best thing to eat to lose weight and get rid of this candida overgrowth is ingest green vegetables or juice green vegetables. Plain and simple!

Foods That Fight Candida Overgrowth

Coconut Oil- It is a potent antifungal!

Garlic- is also a powerful antifungal and and boosts good bacteria in your digestive system. It also stimulates the liver and colon. Drinking 2-4 cloves by juicing is a good tonic for candida. I actually tried this and oh my lordy is it nasty! As my mother says beauty is pain (In the physical sense)…yeah VERY painful to the tastebuds.

Onions- They are anti fungal, help get rid of those un panache’ parasite, and help with water retention (which I have).

Seaweed- It’s iodine rich and helps balance the thyroid (which the thyroid is the king of the metabolism). Also, it flushes heavy metals from the body.

Rutabaga- Is supposedly one of the best anti fungal foods out there. 

Ginger- It detoxifies the liver and stimulates the immune system.

Pumpkin seeds- are high in omega fatty acids and that helps fight candida. If your a woman I suggest staying away from these seeds though because I read they increase testosterone.

Cayenne Pepper- I can’t rave about this spice enough! I always put this spice in my water for a metabolism boost and for it’s spicy taste on my food. It increases circulation in the body and helps the digestive system.

Cleansing Is The Key

Drinking Psyllium Husk for fiber is good for cleansing. Also acacia powder and apple fiber are good fiber choices as well.

Drinking Liquid Bentonite Clay is also necessary for cleansing and combining it with fiber is the best choice. The Bentonite clay soaks up toxins, and the fiber pushes waste matter out through your colon.

Doing 15 colonics in 30 days is very helpful in cleaning out your system and of the candida overgrowth. The only reason I say 15 colonics is because I read this in the book Natural Cures “They” Don’t Want You To Know About A very good book I highly recommend it!

Iv’e also found a lot of good weight loss tips in this book and that’s what inspired me to write this article.

More Weight Loss Tips:

Use infared saunas!

Take digestive enzymes!

Eat organic grapefruit (after the candida cleanse of course)

Use a rebounder:

Here is a good video about a rebounder from Dan the man who is my favorite health guru:

Cosume 100% organic virgin coconut oil!

Use organic apple cider vinegar…I’m drinking some Bragg organic apple cider vinegar now and I definitely feel an energy boost. 🙂

Use magnetic finger ring!

Eat organic apples (again after candida cleanse)

Hope this has helped!

PS: Listen to this song to get pumped up to be a lovely wizard:

Stay Rosy!

Radical Rose
