Mrs. Rodgers, would you keep us posted about the magnesium oil you're using and what you think about it?  You can keep me informed, if you want to, by private message.  I would really appreciate it.  I read the site you provided for us.  Thanks.

Quoted from funkymuse
What about Peter Gillham's 'Natural Calm'?

3 tsp in a cup of warm water provides 615 mg of elemental magnesium citrate.

Would this be as good as the spray on oil?


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 thread revved me up so much I just went to Amazon and ordered two books about magnesium.  One was "The Magnesium Miracle" by Carolyn Dean and the other was "Transdermal Magnesium Therapy" by Mark Sircus.

I take magnesium twice a day in capsule form but now I'm especially intrigued by this transdermal method using magnesium "oil."

It sounds too good to be true!  I'll be very interested to hear how it works.

I'm also interested in hearing about the long term results of the Magnesium oil.

My daughter likes Peter Gillham's Cal/Mag fizzy powder.  It's the same as the Natual Calm with the addition of Calcium.

I will let you know how the magnesium oil goes.  Right now I'm noticing some moles got itchy and I scratched and they came off!  A small one on my chin that has been there for ever and one on my side that got extra magnesium oil dripped on it when I spritzed my armpits. (Magnesium is supposed to be antimicrobial so you can use it as a deodorant.  Works pretty good.)  Anyway, 2 moles down, many others to go.

Lots of research backs up the Magnesium Miracle book.  The transdermal one also sounds interesting.  I mostly spritz it on (I diluted mine with half rose water because that's what was in my spray bottle and it makes it aroma therapy as well.  I did put some in the bath when I was pretty sore after gardening for 7 hours and it helped and then I was back at it again for 6 hours the next day, and 4 hours today (why did I start so many plants last winter!!!??? I planted 54 blue flax plants!  Soon I will be surrounded by clouds of blue flowers, that's why.)   Magnesium is supposed to increase the energy production  of the cell and I think it does.

Victoria knows I was taking maca root for hot flashes, but after a while it quit working.  I remembered she mentioned to take a break from it for a while and then it will work again.  While on that break, I started the magnesium oil and then I noticed hey!, hot flashes are gone again without the maca!  Then I read somewhere that magnesium is also involved in temperature regulation.

This guinea pig will let you know if there are any more new developments.

Dear Ms. Guinea Pig    I can't wait to hear more from you.  I'm eagerly awaiting my books from Amazon.  After reading these posts I know I'm going to use the magnesium oil, I just want to read the books first.

Very interesting information... thanks all!!  


Magnesium had always been a mystery for me as for most of my adult life my mag levels had always been low, while my calcium was always smack dab in the middle of normal range. This frustrated me for many years as I had been taking a cal/mag supplement like a good girl since my early thirties. I had a lightbulb moment when I first read back in Eat Right that B's tend to have lower levels of magnesium. Since then I have been trying different ratios of cal to mag with varying degrees of success. But I hadn't heard of transdermal use of magnesium and the magnesium oil sounds so interesting!! I hope it works for you Mrs. Rodgers!!! Please keep us informed!!!

So, guess what?!  I just ordered a small amount of magnesium oil to try out.  I was very impressed with my two books.  I haven't finished reading the one by Carolyn Dean, yet, but I'll probably read it as fast as I read the one by Mark Sircus.  I am very excited to try this out and I really expect to notice results since I am a B.  It's very hard to get the mag supplement just right as too much will cause loose stools and who wants to put up with that!  I can understand, now, that the mag "oil" will not cause the same problem.

I believe I will follow Mrs. Rodgers' method and dilute the "oil."  I'm going to use distilled water.  I thought about just spraying the armpits but, who knows, I might end up spraying it everywhere and having myself a really good time of it    Soaking in the bathtub sounds pretty inviting, too.

So did we, oil and gel!

The BTD has proved to be good for most of our ageing ailments but nothing seems to work for our skin, so we are going to give this a go.

Also I have severe pain in my spine due to degeneration so we hope this may give some relief too.

Rubbing magnesium chloride 45% oral solution onto the skin on my legs worked a treat so we rubbed some onto the skin of my back where the pain is worst and it seemed to help ease the pain a bit.

Imagination? Perhaps but we shall see when the order arrives!    Cheers, John.

Encouraged by the information on this thread and the Webb link info.

I have been taking 2.5 to 5.0mg of Mag chloride at night so I tried rubbing some into the skin on my legs and it made a big difference to my skin but I have run out now, so am waiting for the order from the States to come. Cheers John.

Good, Pipnjohn!  Very encouraging.  As for the books, I'm going to pay more attention to the lists of foods that are high in magnesium.  I can see that I have neglected eating some of the good ones lately.  Can't have that!!  By the way, do you play the bagpipes?

You had me stumped there for a while, it's Pip (my wife Philippa) and (n) John  

There are some who would say I am a bag of wind, but no, I am not a piper! (lol)  

I just used the it when I joined the Webb site because I didn't know what else to do at the time.

Never even thought of what it could mean to any one else.   Cheers John.

I think Philippa is a beautiful name!  Pip-n-john!  Hey, that's really cute!    I like the bagpipes but don't know anyone, personally, who plays them.

I received the mag oil yesterday and slathered some on last night before bed.  Slept well but too early to know if I can attribute it to mag oil or not.  I'm excited to have it and will try it different ways.  I did dilute it half-and-half with distilled water.  So, that's the latest with me and mag oil.  Just keeping everybody posted.

I'm curious as to what you are hoping the Mag oil will do for you. I'm also wondering if it would do anything for circulation issues/tissue repair. I'm torn between spending my dollars on emu oil or mag oil...

I take the Natural Calm but not on a regular basis but am now going to be doing that as I have been diagnosed with diverticulitis - thought it was some after effects of my colon resection 4 yrs ago but when I think back on it ... yep, it was the start of this situation.

I am under a huge amount of stress right now and the other day I started with the chest burns - that tells me I'm over the top with stress.  Downed a cuppa Natural Calm and voila !  within minutes the pains were gone.  I only do about 1 tsp in a half cup of water.  Realized that it was a help with the elimination process of my digestion I decided it would definitely help with the diver. situation.

After reading theT-Tap link article I can see where I've been deficient in mag for years and years based on the list in the side bar.

I'm moving tomorrow (only one of the stressors in my life) and taking about 10 or 12 days off from my f/t job.  As well as unpacking I'm planning to get busy and get myself firmly planted on the BTD again.  I seemed to have slipped a little, a little more, a little more than that, OMG how did I end up in a 20/80 situation??  when it s/b an 80/20 ... climbing back up outta da hole and back into the healthy world.  Magnesium is going to be a part of this climb back to health.

What transdermal mag "oil" can do for me is to make sure I have enough magnesium.  In reading the books I mentioned earlier I am realizing that little by little I have been eating less magnesium-containing foods.  For instance, I stopped eating almonds and brazil nuts because hard nuts hurt my jaw and it wants to lock up.  I used to eat peanuts but since learning I'm a B I can't eat them anymore.  I used to every day eat wheat germ and whole wheat but since beginning BTD I don't do that anymore, either.  I read both books thoroughly and I can see I have cheated myself on the magnesium side and I had forgotten just how important mag is for us.  

The transdermal method is gentle and does not purge the system as too much oral magnesium is capable of doing.

Well, we have received our order and have begun to use it.

Believe it or not I have experienced a reduction in the pains in my back already!

I can walk more freely than at any time having Physio and taking painkillers from an MD.

The pain killers and Physio were stopped a week ago because I had to have a colonoscopy. (clear too thanks to BTD)

We will keep you posted. Cheers John.
