Quoted from Mrs._Rodgers
I have the book Magnesium Miracle and Dr. Dean says in her book that magnesium oxide, while good as a laxative, is the least absorbable form of magnesium.  Magnesium Malate with malic acid is a form she recommends, also transdermal magnesium chloride, which you can spray on your skin.  That way it can be absorbed into the cells without the problem of loose stools.  This is where I got my Magnesium Oil as it is called:  

http://www.internationalhealth.net/Page8.html

I've noticed a decrease in seasonal and cat allergies, and iincreased energy.  I've only been using a small amount for a month but they also claim it increases DHEA levels in the skin and repairs sun damaged skin in a few months so we'll see.  


What do they charge for their mag products?  I couldn't find any pricing

Hi everyone, I'm ready to check in with my results!  I went to the web site of http://www.oceanmagnesium.com and ordered 8 ounces of magnesium oil. That was approx. 2 weeks ago.  The order came fast, too!    I poured half the liquid into a clean bottle for further use.  I filled up the half-remainder of the original bottle with distilled water. Then I bought a small spray bottle that I could handle easily and I fill that with the diluted mag oil.  I have been squirting myself every evening before bed with this "oil", let it dry and then plunk myself into bed for the night.  

I have been sleeping like a baby!! ever since.  This is great stuff!  One night in the middle of the night I awoke with nervous tension in my right leg.  This stems from the area of the sacroiliac which gives me trouble at night.  So, I decided to give this mag oil a real test.  I got up, reached for the mag oil and squirted that leg and thigh all over.  Really covered it!  Then I went back to bed and waited with a bit of scepticism (okay, maybe a lot of scepticism) but truly within 5 minutes I could feel the nerves in that leg putting themselves to sleep so I said why don't I go to sleep, too   Honestly, it was so miraculous, I couldn't believe it.  I slept the rest of that night very peacefully.

So, now, I have cut down my doses of magnesium tablets during the day so that now I take only 200 mg twice a day.  I am very confident in this mag oil.  I believe starting tonight I won't squirt the whole body, just from the hips on down.  The stuff is a little gummy feeling.

I'm interested in hearing what Mrs. Rodgers has to say, also.  I did read Dr. Dean's book and also Mark Sircus' book.  Very valuable books!

Pipin John, I think the results you are getting are fabulous.  So happy for you and I'm happy to learn everything I can about the use of the mag oil.

Go to the link that is titled Online Store and you can go to the Magnesium products from there and get pricing.  They are much more reasonable than the other site.

Well, funkymuse, I would say get the book by Mark Sircus.  There is more detail in there about transdermal magnesium.  He does, in fact, quote Dr. Dean quite often so you will get some of her wisdom in this book, too.  Dean's book is good for various lists, such as a listing of foods high in magnesium, etc.  The two books actually are a good complement to each other.

You could check both books out from the library and just glean whatever information you need from both.

I am currently reading Dr. Dean's book (from the library) It gives information on the importance of magnesium, what functions it serves in the human body and the problems that may arise in a lack of magnesium and also what types of oral magnesium are most effective ie: mag citrate is the one with laxative effects, how much magnesium is in an oral tablet... that your body excretes 50% of an oral mag supplement, the difficulty in getting an accurate assessment of magnesium levels through blood tests etc. All really good info... but not something I would purchase if you are looking for a book to buy. Just mho....

Looking forward to reading the Sircus book soon..........

Also... check out MoDon's thread on heavy metal contaminants in supplements... magnesium is one that is more likely to be contaminated. As I posted in the thread, the magnesium supplement I currently use claims it has been tested for heavy metals and solvent residues.

Oh... and thanks for the update New Hampshire Girl!!!!!

Hi everyone.  Wow, fun to hear about everyone's mag oil.  I'm still using it too and didn't post because I didn't think much was going on but after reviewing the last 2 weeks, I realized, I was taking being a little more normal for granted.  

Chemical sensitivities:  I've been traveling and usually I take my own down pillows with me because those synthetic pillows (and blankets) in hotels cause a reaction, irregular heartbeats to be specific.  Well, I forgot my pillows and did just fine with the synthetic ones!  (I still rip those blankets that look like plastic off the beds.)  Even with my own pillows, I never felt good staying in hotels, everything is bad, those pillowtop mattresses in the high end hotels, who knows what's in those, those old cheap saggy ones--ewww.  Anyway, not to have irregular heartbeats and not be exhausted until I get home to my own bed is amazing.

Allergies:  I brushed my old (16 years) outside cat Moonie, (actually all four of our cats are outside cats because of my allergies).  It just hit me that fur was flying everywhere and I didn't sneeze and my nose didn't get stuffed up.  

Skin:  The small mole on my chin that became itchy and that I then scratched off (I know "yuk") gone without a scar.  Another small one above my eye brow, the same thing is happening.  Kinda weird, one mole at a time, but still it's great.  Some moles under my armpit, slightly itching.  

I gave some to my sister and she's just been spraying her legs and she says this large raised mole on her leg is getting irritated and itchy.  

Maybe it is true that the Mag oil does increase the DHEA in the skin.  Sure seems like it.  I ordered a gallon because I wanted to start adding it to my bath, which I do in the mornings.  I guess because I'm vain, I've been doing a facial treatment in the evenings.  I apply it liberally to my face and neck full strength and leave it there until it drys, then rinse off.  It does burn slightly.  Then I apply pure shea butter.  I'm hoping the age spots and sun damage will improve.  We'll see.

Oh boy, Mrs. Rodgers, I want to hear about age spots!!!  Do let us know if you have improvement in those.

Thanks for the update on your use of mag "oil."  It's true we all need magnesium but I found it tough to get the right amount in pill form and I'm very thankful to learn about the transdermal method.  In fact, I'm very excited about this subject!

You're welcome, Kristin.  Thanks for all the info you give us.

I haven't read any of the books  yet, but why do the moles fall off?  Is this a safe way to get rid of them?  And do you specifically place the oil on the moles to achieve this end?

I don't know for sure.  I read that moles are caused by a virus and that magnesium is an antimicrobial so maybe that's why.  Or maybe raising the DHEA and magnesium levels in the skin makes it healthier and able to fight viruses.

Two years ago a friend gave me some Two Feathers Healing Formula which I applied to 2 large moles, one on my neck and one on my arm pit.  It took 10 days for them to fall off and I was in pain the whole time (burning). I wouldn't recommend it. The magnesium oil was painless.  

I applied the magnesium oil to my face, neck, armpits, arms and legs via spray bottle, than applied lotion after.

I followed the link in this thread to the T-Tapp forum and purchased from a lovely lady named Joan at this site below.  
I hesitate to tell you how much less I paid for a gallon of magnesium oil from Health and Wisdom

Thanks so much for the other source of Magnesium oil.  About half the price, not bad.  Now we know why your name is Scout!

I'm so glad I came across this thread - my husband has been suffering from migranes and that's one of the symptoms of mag deficiency - and he's a B - which I also now know they are more prone to the deficincy to begin with.  I'm going to be getting some suppliments right away for us both.

Without a doubt, transdermal magnesium chloride.  See the site listed by Scout.

Thanks. That idea makes a good case for just soaking in epsom salts in the bath too. (Magnesium chloride)

OUCH!  

I wish I would have gotten the cheaper prices!  At least I didn't order the gallon from the International Health site!  Next time I'm going to Health and Wisdom!

I believe that Epsom salts is magnesium sulfate.
