On August 8 I blogged about increasing my husband's and my calcium and magnesium after a one year experiment with lower doses lead to a series of muscle spasms for both of us. I am pleased to report that we are both feeling much better.
His back pain is gone. From the day I increased his cal/mag he improved each day. Last night he told me there is a some residual stiffness, but he has resumed all normal activity. I can reach both of my arms over my head. My right arm feels a little weak, but that's probably because I have been babying it for months. I need to start trying to rebuild my muscles.
If you take hard calcium-only tablets from the grocery store, you should probably read the study that warns about too much calcium and Arteriosclerosis. If you balance your calcium and magnesium and take Vitamin K along with it, ignore the study. Just my opinion. All I am is a volunteer blogger.
I reread my birthday blog. If it sounded negative to you, I apologize. That's not the way I meant it. On milestone birthdays people tend to get introspective.
I've spent a lot of time researching health since I was 23. I've spent a lot of money buying healthy food and supplements. When you are young, your body will take a lot of neglect, but when you are old you pay the price for neglect. I really do hope that I reap the rewards of living healthy.
Now (drum roll) I am going to change the subject of this blog, and future blogs for several months. More detail next time, but I'll drop a hint and say that I bought two copies of Dr. D'Adamo's book "Eat Right for your Baby."
