The other day, I happened to run into an article surrounding Magnesium and what happens if one doesn’t get enough of it into their diet. I skimmed over it, but then didn’t give it much thought. Then over the weekend, a friend of mine began talking about how supplementing her diet with Magnesium and B6 has changed her life.
She told me of how difficult her life would become near her periods and how depressed she was following the birth of her baby. Her doctor worked to prescribe everything under the sun from anti-depressants to anxiety meds and more. She felt that there was something missing…that there had to be a diet based answer to her problems. This led her to a nutrition conference in which she learned that Magnesium and b6 deficiencies can cause major problems in the lives of children and adults. Among them are:
– Symptoms of ADD & ADHD
– Frustration & anger
– Painful cramps & backaches for women on periods
And the list goes on…
After supplementing her diet with Magnesium Citrate (experts say this is probably the best form to take and to AVOID Mag. Oxide like the plague) and B6, my friend’s life has changed dramatically. She isn’t on any prescribed meds. via her doctor. Additionally, she has cut out refined foods and as much gluten as possible. Not only does she feel better, she looks so very energized. I noticed this as compared to months ago.
There are many, many articles surrounding this topic. Please Google it and learn more on this subject, especially if you have any of the symptoms above, have been diagnosed with a panic attack disorder, or if your child has been diagnosed as ADD or ADHD.
Here is a comprehensive article on the subject: http://www.mbschachter.com/importance_of_magnesium_to_human.htm
Hope this helps!! I felt that it was necessary for me to share, as I think there are many who could benefit from this knowledge.
