Research about Magnesium

Magnesium, Stress & Disease: 

IMVA (International Medical Veritas Association ) – 18-08-10 
              The U.S. Department  of  Agriculture  says  that  about  60% of  adults in  the United States do  not  consume  the  estimated  average  requirement  for  magnesium.
What they don`t tell us is that this 60% is  based  on  minimum  daily  estimates  set  by the Department of Agriculture are  set  terribly  low, so  actually  the  number  is  much higher. In the best of times magnesium  intake  from  white  processed  foods is on  the level of starvation of this precious and  very  necessary  mineral.  Most Americans  are actually malnourished and diseased because of it and because of  the  toxic  loads  they carry in their cells and blood.
             The normal accepted recommended  daily  dietary  amount of   magnesium  is only 300-400 mg. Many professionals feel  this  to  be  a  bare  minimum.  Some  would say that 1,000 mg is probably more in  the  range of   what  most  people  need  due  to stress  (measured by  cortisol levels) causing  magnesium to be dumped into  the sweat in increasing quantities. Actually there are all kinds of cellular  stresses that  drive  down magnesium levels including chemical stress. 
           Radiation, chemicals and heavy metals put enormous stress  on  organs,  tissues and cells. Magnesium mediates a good part of our body`s ability to deal with and remove such toxic insults. Toxicities actually increase as magnesium levels fall. In plain language that means we have more allergic reactions, come down with the flu more often   (never listen or trust anything the World Health Organizations says about the flu for most  cases are actually not caused by a virus but by chemical stress), suffer from diabetes (diabetes is largely a result of these toxic stresses combined  with  overall  malnutrition  especially magnesium deficiency).
         Magnesium is the Ultimate Heart Medicine for you will always see deficient cellular magnesium in each and every case of heart disease, stroke, cancer and neurological decline. In the Age of Toxicity we are suffering to live through we are from conception being exposed to poison and increased radiation exposure from medical tests, constant microwave exposure etc. Magnesium levels thus fall through the years and it is not easy to reverse this decline. Oral supplementation is chancy at best because high dosages loosen the intestines. My book Transdermal Magnesium Therapy was a landmark medical text in that it presented what is commonly known as magnesium oil and how it can be applied directly to the skin or put into medical baths for transdermal absorption. The second edition of this in print text will be out inlate November. Mg deficiency increases susceptibility to the physiologic damage produced by stress. The adrenergic effects of psychological stress induce a shift of Mg from the intracellular to the extracellular space, increasing urinary excretion and eventually depleting body stores.
Dr. Leo Galland

Magnesium is one of the most well studied nutrients and smart doctors reach for it quickly for patients suffering from heart attacks  or  strokes.  We  would  have  an entirely different world if governments got behind magnesium supplementation. People  would be healthier and happier,  would miss less days of work, would be less stressed and would be able to work harder and enjoy life more. We would also cut the world's medical bill down by a trillion or two  dollars. This would  upset  peoplelike Bill Gates and others like him who want to cut population not increase it. 
     Recently the British Journal of  Psychiatry  published that  people with a diet  heavy in processed food had a   58%  higher risk  of  depression. What  they  don't say is that the reason for the depression was lack of dietary magnesium in such diets and that depression can easily  and best  be treated  with  magnesium.   What they do say is that a "whole food”  diet  protects  against  depression because  of  the  combined  effect  of  consuming  nutrients   from  lots of  different   types of food, rather than the effect of one single nutrient. Though there is a glint of truth to this statement it hides the well-researched reality  that it  is  magnesium   levels that provide the key to our mental and emotional states. In today.s stressful world magnesium levels get driven further down. Not only does thestress eat  up   our magnesium stores at an  accelerated  pace but how we  deal with our stress is also telling. For instance it.s generally understood that liquor sales  spike  during   an economic slump. According to a recent poll by Gallup Americans are downing more booze – 67% of Americans report that they consume alcohol on a regular  basis. Increased alcoholic intake, which happens frequently in times of stress for some people, depletes magnesium in our bodies.  Alcohol increases  urinary  magnesium excretion by as much as 260% above baseline values; this occurs within  minutes of ingestion. Often by  increasing  magnesium,  the  perceived  need for  alcohol decreases while some of the depression and anxiety are alleviated. 
     Research published in the American Journal of Epidemiology in 2002 shows that when the diets of 2,566 children ages 11-19 were studied, less than 14% of boys and 12% of girls had adequate intakes of magnesium. 
   We can actually see the hate and foul viciousness of some of the richest people and companies on earth in this story because the truth and facts about magnesium
    Pharmaceutical  companies  especially don't  want us to  know anything about  using simple minerals to  help depression,  reduce violence,  reduce   stress or stay healthy and out of the doctor's  o ffice  and out  of hospitals.  Since  the  arrival  of selective   serotonin reuptake  inhibitors   antidepressants  (SSRIs)  and   atypical antipsychotics  on  the market' countless studies have shown the so-called "new generation” of psychiatric drugs to be ineffective  and  dangerous  but   exceptionally profitable. There is no such thing as a substitute for the mineral magnesium.
     Worldwide, sales of anti-psychotics  went  from $263 million in  1986 to $8.6 billion in  2004 and  antidepressant  sales  went from   $240  million in  1986 to  $11.2 billion  in  2004.  For these  two  classes  of drugs  combined, sales went  from $500  million in  1986 to nearly  $20 billion in  2004, a  40-fold  increase,  according  to Robert Whitaker, best-selling author of Mad in  America.  And God  only  knows how  high  these numbers have climbed to in the year 2010 when stress, mental and emotional disturbances are going off the charts.
     Despite a dramatic increase in treatment of psychiatric disorders during the past 10 years, there has been no decrease in the rate of suicidal thoughts and behavior among adults, according to a federal study primarily funded by the National Institute of Mental Health. 
     The Washington Post Police Chief Nannette H. Hegerty of Milwaukee said a few years ago that, "We're  seeing a very  angry  population, and  they don't go  to fists anymore, they go right to guns,” she said. "When we ask, „Why did you shoot this guy?. it.s, „He bumped into me.. or, „He  looked  at  my girl the  wrong  way..”  said Police Commissioner Sylvester M. Johnson of Philadelphia. "It.s not like riding around doing drive-by shootings. It.s arguments – stupid arguments over  stupid things.” While arguments have always made up a large number of homicides, the police say  the  trigger  point  now comes   faster . In  robberies,  Milwaukee.s  Chief Hegerty said, "Even after the person gives up, the guy with the gun shoots him anyway. We didn.t have as much of that before.”
     A marginal deficiency can easily be transformed into a more significant problem when stressful events trigger additional magnesium loss. In the extreme  situations stressful events trigger sudden drops of serum magnesium leading to cardiac arrest. Even a mild deficiency  of  magnesium can  cause  increased  sensitivity to  noise, nervousness, irritability, mental depression, confusion, twitching, trembling, apprehension, and insomnia.
     In recent years we've seen an increase of all kinds of weird violence as magnesium levels are driven lower and lower. Almost every week now we  hear  reports  of people walking into schools in China stabbing teachers and children and in America also mass killings are slaughtering people and there they hide the fact that most   of these assaulters are on pharmaceutical medications that drive their magnesium levels to the bottom. I am in no way  saying  that  magnesium is  the  answer  to  every problem in the world but it would go a long way to calm people down and reset the trigger points much higher .
     The  World Health  Organization  (WHO) has  recommended drinking  water  containing  25-50 mg  of magnesium (Mg) per  liter to prevent deaths from  heart attack and stroke.
     American bottled water contains about 5 mg of Mg per liter, well below the 20 mg/l in the  rest of the world.s bottled water,  according  to the  WHO.  If the WHO was really interested in  helping Americans, like  they want to help with their dangerous vaccines, they would  make sure  that the  government implemented  these  kinds of recommendations that would save countless lives.
     Magnesium deficiency causes serotonin deficiency with possible resultant aberrant behaviors, including depression suicide or irrational violence. 
Dr.Paul Mason

     The Department of Family Medicine, Pomeranian Medical Academy, states that dietetic factors can play a  significant role in the  origin of ADHD  and that  magnesium deficiency  can  result in  disruptive  behaviors.  Even a  mild  deficiency  of magnesium  can cause sensitiveness  to noise,  nervousness,  irritability, mental  depression, confusion, twitching, trembling, apprehension, and insomnia. A significant number of researchers have shown that as much as 60-90% of illnesses are directly caused  or exacerbated by stress. And in fact, numerous studies have shown that stress is related to major illnesses like heart disease, high blood pressure,  and diabetes.  There isnow little question that stress can kill, meaning that magnesium deficienciescan put you in your grave.
     Harvard physiologist Walter Cannon recognized 90 years ago that when confronted by a threat – physical or  emotional, real or  imagined – the body responds  with a rise in blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension and  breathing  rate. We  now  know  that this  physiological  "stress  response”  involves  hormones  and  inflammatory chemicals that can foster everything from headaches to heart attacks in overdose. It is  clear that  magnesium  deficiency or  imbalance plays a role in  the symptoms  of mood disorders. Observational and experimental studies have shown an association between magnesium and aggression,anxiety, ADHD, bipolar disorder,depression, andschizophrenia.
     So you tell me who the real terrorists are? The sea is full of magnesium and it is easily sourced and  applied  orally,  transdermally,  through  IVs and  even  nebulized directly into the lungs. 
     Patients who had made suicide attempts (by using either violent or nonviolent means)  had significantly lower mean CSF magnesium level irrespective of the  diagnosis.
