Researches about Magnesium

Stress, Magnesium & Disease:
IMVA – 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, and strong
increases in environmental background radiation that has increased because of
the American militaries passion for depleted uranium weapons, which they
use on every major battlefield in modern times.
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 in late 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
     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 the stress 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 are well known by researchers around the world. 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 people like
Bill Gates and others like him who want to cut population not increase it.
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 office 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 they.re 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.
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 is now little question that stress can kill, meaning that magnesium deficiencies
can 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, and
schizophrenia.
     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.
