OK, thanks for the tip. Do you use Curcuma in your food or some other way, capsules/tablets?

Found this on wikipedia
"Curcuma is a genus of about 80    accepted species in the plant family Zingiberaceae that contains such species as turmeric and Siam Tulip."

I think I read somewhere about Turmeric beeing good. Do you mean Turmeric?

fine  may I dig a bit  deeper...e or i  

about curcuma, yessss also fine +- for everybody but not for O sechis, I guess coz it's also a bloodthinner; then perhaps better to go for ginger root in your case  
The curcumaquestion ist mostly a superbene for A's& AB's... .....Turmeric taken as a supplement 250-500mg's 2-3x daily is a great prevention suppl. in case for ca-prevention, dito during ca-treatments like chemo and/or radiation therapy  
here also the O's can use it.....but perhaps not that much in its' amounts   ......
I use the curcuma as described above ca-prevention,immunsystem enhacer and digestions aid   so the bloodthinner comes in as well but not really needed...I hope....

Quoted from Stefina
I take Magnesium at night.  It has made me hyper a couple of times tho.  Usually it does not and helps me to sleep.  


That's interesting. Magnesium calms me and then lifts my mood
If I forget to take it, I know it...

I take magnesium internally for my bowel movements, but also have (recently) begun to put mag oil externally on my bumps. I have a couple of weird growths (one on my thigh, and one on my nose -- both very small) that I've been putting the mag oil onto, and the one on my thigh is now turning brown (after just 7 days). I'm hoping it will fall off and never return.  


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

well I never thought I see the day that I got too much of a good thing, but after having diarrhea for a few weeks I realized I was taking too much mag!!!! At first I couldn't imagine what was going wrong and then it dawned on me.....I've been taking a lot of mag for a looong time and there is a build up I believe. Cuz I think at first the body needs the extra mag to make up for a lack....but then eventually it is enough already!!! Now I am back to normal, taking a lot less mag.

Practically everything you ever wanted to know about magnesium is here.

And I've been reading this site daily for nearly two weeks.  What I've discovered is that a lot
of my aches and pains might be because I'd been taking too much calcium and have managed to actually give myself a deficiency of magnesium.  Also when D is high, magnesium levels
fall.  The latest research keeps saying to take more D, but these articles show evidence that
it's not necessarily true. More calcium might be absorbed but more magnesium is lost.

In the left hand corner of this site is an entire book online by Mildred Seelig that I've been
reading.  Fascinating information for anyone wanting to understand the pathogensis of
magnesium deficiency.

Yes I'm anxious to try the Magnesium Oil as well but I'm waiting to see how my levels are as my NP just ordered a full vit/mineral level test on me.

But again... I am using the Natural Calm as shown above... anyone else????

This Natural Calm is a very superior product. I have used it a lot over the years. Magnesium regulates heart rate
and there was a study done with heart attack victims and very low magnesium
deficiencies. Magnesium with Boron are
the catalyst to assimilating Calcium.

What makes the natural calm so effective? You mix it with boiling water and the
fizzy reaction gives it a strong ionic
charge that adheres to the negitive receptors in the gut. I may have polarity mixed up but you get my point. Yes, too
much will give you very loose bowls.
It works wonders for a good night sleep
and smooths out the mylon sheath, the
outer coating on the nerves. Very relaxing indeed.

I'm not responsible for this statement
and you should seek medical attention.
My father had bad chest pains one afternoon and I gave him a strong
glass of this ionized magnesium
and with-in minutes the chest pains
where gone. Anxiety? Natural Calm!

The Magnesium Oil looks interesting.
I'll research. Thanks!

Ok, whenever I balance my calcium and magnesium my muscles are less stiff and don't accumulate toxins.  When I was little I had night terrors and when I was 20 I had a night terror from overdosing on calcium.  Ok now when detoxing from the GTD I had the same issue but when awake.  I was detoxing from Uric Acid so bad I could smell it in my nose and taste it.  So when I detox on the GTD is it safe to say that I need magnesium?

Speaking of magnesium oil, I just bought a bottle on-line.  I was really surprised how amazingly well it works!  It's definitely a keeper in my book!

About Magnesium:

The bottle we have is Magnesium Citrate at 400 mg.

We take it with dinner as recommended but I notice I get exhausted from it making me sleepy way to early in the evening.

I know many others take theirs at bedtime, but this bottle of tabs says to take it with dinner.

Would it hurt to take on a semi empty or completely empty tummy?  And why do they recommend taking it with dinner do you think?

Hey people,
Can taking magnesium cause insomnia ?  Should I take more ?  I take about 800 mg phytocal to 500 mg magnesium.  What would be the best form to take ?

I do magnesium oil for the past two years, and I am very happy with it, and if I miss for some reason to put it on the body, I take 40 drops in a glass of water and drink it just before going to bed.

I would like to try some, but I'm afraid I won't tolerate the sticky business.  How can I get around this problem & where can I get some ?

Sorry if this was already answered somewhere in thread, but I am @ work & cannot read back through.

Here's what I've been buying although I have a gallon I bought online that's almost
used up.

http://www.swansonvitamins.com/SWU485/ItemDetail?n=4294967189

I pump about 5-6 sprays into my hand...rub it on one arm..do the same for the other
arm...same for each leg...5-6 sprays in hand rubbed in for each location...Then I pump again same
amount for my torso...and rub some on my shoulders and whatever part of my back
I can reach.  Then I wait 30 minutes.  First time you use it, it might burn a bit...
you can water it down so it's diluted....After 30 minutes it's totally absorbed so your
body has gotten the benefits.  Then I take a shower and I'm not sticky.

Also, if you want to totally avoid putting in on your body, do it as a foot bath...
pour some in a small tub of warm water and soak your feet...or put some in the tub
and take a 30 minute bath and then rinse.

I do this every day...the spraying, ie...and it's really pretty easy.

Thanks Chloe,
I will try your method.  I need to do something, I have been having insomnia for a long time & sometimes I wake in am, stretch a little & my calf would cramp up PAINFUL & sometimes my toes during the day.

How do you water it down ?  Just in case if I need to.
