Thanx for posting that article.  I was having cramps in my feet, calves and sometimes in my obliques, which made it very hard to do my pilates exercises.  Also I would occasionaly get very severe cramps in my inner thighs.  I've started taking NATURAL CALM 3 weeks ago and have noticed that I have no cramps in my feet.  It says to take 3 tsp but to work up to it gradually if you are very difficient or you will have loose stool right off the batt.  I really like the NATURAL CALM because it's not another pill and it absorbes quickly.

You're welcome, BuzyBee.

Swimming in the ocean sounds
like it would have some benefit.
You can't miss swimming in the
Dead Sea. Now that is as concentrated,
if not more so, than the Mag Oil!
I assume that the Mag Oil also
contains all the other minerials
that are in the ocean water or
Great Lakes water.

Cordially,
Margaret

I have a friend that has a salt water swimming pool that says it has such a nice soft feeling. When you get out of the pool you skin feels silky smooth - unlike the chlorine pools. There must be a benefit from this.

Don't know if the mineral salt pool has any benefits(such as magnesium) or not but would be like to know.

I have been applying transdermal magnesium to my legs and hips before bedtime ever since the subject of transdermal magnesium cropped up.  It does wonders for the nerves in these areas and I usually have a good night's sleep.  However, I'm getting annoyed at the gummy feeling of the bed sheets and tired of changing sheets so much more, now, that I'm thinking of doing the soak in the tub for 20 minutes.  You can't imagine how startling it was for me to come to that decision as I don't like soaking at all.    Last night I soaked my feet in a pan and that was easy but I'm wondering which method is better.  Probably I should soak a lot more of my body in the magnesium water.  

Those of you who have tried the various methods, what do you think?  Is anyone still using transdermal magnesium chloride?

Lola, where are you getting your mag chloride?  Mine is from Global Light Network and I'm wary of drinking it.

I've been using powdered magnesium citrate, and have to use *a lot* less than when I was taking it in compressed tablet form (chelated magnesium). I'm sleeping better, and most importantly, eliminating better.

Yes, I used to take magnesium citrate every day and it is excellent but then I discovered this thread concerning transdermal mag chloride and changed over to that.  When nerves are spasming in my legs and thighs it has been extremely helpful to spray mag chloride on my legs before bed and it does help me sleep peacefully.   But, as I noted, it is gummy.  Perhaps I will limit the use to soaking my feet twice a week.  But, I was interested in Lola's taking it by mouth and I did read that others have done the same.  I just wanted to know whatever product I buy is okay to take by mouth.  I'm a little leery of that, I admit.

also instant results for me

magnesium is extremely important if you have got problems with digestion (disorders etc)

i get cramps, constipation and trouble sleeping if i am depleted
coffee totally zaps it for me like... instantly... i hardly ever drink it but if i do i get cramps after 5 minutes or so

there is a huge difference on what kind and potency you take though...from my experience

Oh, oh, I didn't make myself clear.   My question was to those on the forum who are taking mag chloride by mouth (drinking it).  Whose product do you trust for that?

sorry, not much help there!

Is Mag Chloride supposed to be more absorbable than Mag Citrate?

Magnesium Chloride for Health and Rejuvenation

by Walter Last


Magnesium is nothing short of a miracle mineral in its healing effect on a wide range of diseases as well as in its ability to rejuvenate the aging body. We know that it is essential for many enzyme reactions, especially in regard to cellular energy production, for the health of the brain and nervous system and also for healthy teeth and bones. However, it may come as a surprise that in the form of magnesium chloride it is also an impressive infection fighter.

The first prominent researcher to investigate and promote the antibiotic effects of magnesium was a French surgeon, Prof. Pierre Delbet MD. In 1915 he was looking for a solution to cleanse wounds of soldiers, because he found that traditionally used antiseptics actually damaged tissues and encouraged infections instead of preventing them. In all his tests magnesium chloride solution was by far the best. Not only was it harmless for tissues, but it also greatly increased leucocyte activity and phagocytosis, the destruction of microbes.

Later Prof. Delbet also performed experiments with the internal applications of magnesium chloride and found it to be a powerful immune-stimulant. In his experiments phagocytosis increased by up to 333%. This means after magnesium chloride intake the same number of white blood cells destroyed up to three times more microbes than beforehand.

Gradually Prof. Delbet found magnesium chloride to be beneficial in a wide range of diseases. These included diseases of the digestive tract such as colitis and gall bladder problems, Parkinson's disease, tremors and muscle cramps; acne, eczema, psoriasis, warts and itching skin; impotence, prostatic hypertrophy, cerebral and circulatory problems; asthma, hay fever, urticaria and anaphylactic reactions. Hair and nails became stronger and healthier and patients had more energy.

Prof. Delbet also found a very good preventative effect on cancer and cured precancerous conditions such as leukoplasia, hyperkeratosis and chronic mastitis.

Epidemiological studies confirmed that regions with magnesium-rich soil had less cancer than those with low magnesium levels.Another French doctor, A. Neveu, cured several diphtheria patients with magnesium chloride within two days.

He also published 15 cases of poliomyelitis that were cured within days if treatment was started immediately, or within months if paralysis had already progressed. Neveu also found magnesium chloride effective with asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia and emphysema; pharyngitis, tonsillitis, hoarseness, common cold, influenza, whooping cough, measles, rubella, mumps, scarlet fever; poisoning, gastro-enteritis, boils, abscesses, whitlow, infected wounds and osteomyelitis.

In more recent years Dr Vergini and others have confirmed these earlier results and have added more diseases to the list of successful uses: acute asthma attacks, shock, tetanus, herpes zoster, acute and chronic conjunctivitis, optic neuritis, rheumatic diseases, many allergic diseases, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and beneficial effects in cancer therapy.

In all of these cases magnesium chloride had been used and gave much better results than other magnesium compounds.

Thank you, luanaflacco.  Very interesting article, indeed.

Drea, if you can get hold of the book "Transdermal Magnesium" by Mark Sircus you will find a wealth of information.  

The foot soaks and the soak in the bathtub both sound good.  I know I have had enough of gummy sheets from using the spray although the spray before bed was wonderful for me and calmed the nerves in the legs and thighs and helped me sleep.

Has anyone ever had a problem with their legs aching from taking magnesium? A couple of months after starting magnesium my legs started aching at night after I had been in bed for  several hours.  That is the only thing I can think of that had changed.  I am afraid to stop takiang it as my Dr. had me take it for atrial fib.
I read a lomg time ago that if you take supplements for any length of time and suddenly stop taking them you could create a shortage in your system because your body had come to rely on the supplement.  I have been taking 400 mg of magnesium every other day for about 6 months.
I do have strange reactions to some things.  I took dolomite for calcium and magnesium years ago and created tendonitis in by elbow and wrist.  When I quit taking it the tendonitis went away.
Thanks for any information you can give me.

This sounds like such a miracle mineral. I am looking to purchase some. Possible the liquid magnesium to help aid and heal digestion issues.

Since this is such a wonderful mineral and helps with so many different health problems I am shocked that is was not mentioned in Dr. D's list of items(for A's) to promote intestinal health and healing. I just looked at a link provided by Lloyd(I think-under leaky gut syndrome) and no magnesium listed for A's. Here is the link http://www.dadamo.com/protocols/18.html

I d say it sounds like a great way to do the soak......

To answer my question. According to Intrinsa (which has magnesium) is possible being added to the Intestinal Health Protocol. Please correct me if I am wrong.
