The opposite is actually true.  Magnesium softens stools and if you take too much magnesium, you will know from "running" to the bathroom too often.  


Except the transdermal magnesium chloride causes no laxative effect (or is it affect)?

Transdermal Mag does not Affect bowel movements.

Transdermal Mag has no Effect on bowel movements.

Does anyone know if one can get too much magnesium?  And also has anyone tried it on their hair to notice the gray going away?  

I guess I'll try rubbing the gel all over my body after my showers!  As far as my face.. I'm not sure how to fit it in... maybe I'll do the copper peptide serum in the morning and the magnesium at night... suggestions?

I think I'll have hubby rub it on my back so I can have the moles back there disappear.  

Also is rubbing it on better than spraying?  

AND one final question... are the bath crystals the same as epsom salt?  Just wondering!

Oh.. also... where can one get 'purified water?'  is that like distilled or?

I believe they are two different things....
purified is ok to drink on a regular basis, while distilled is not recommended.

But for the purpose of mixing the recommended 'purified' water with the magnesium oil, would distilled be ok?

If you put the mag oil on full strength and it nips, apparently, you are magnesium deficient!

Well, if that is true, I need buckets of the stuff, because it nips like you were sleeping on an ants nest!

Yes, it does darken your hair, I said nothing and applied it.

A couple of days later, Pip and our daughter both remarked, your hair looks darker today Dad!

Bit annoyed, because I was enjoying my grey hair, sort of like a status symbol! I had arrived!

The change seems to slow down pretty quick though.

Transdermal oil definitely does work on pain, in fact quite amazingly so.

I will write up my account of it later on when I have a few more concrete facts to tell. Cheers John.

I was already getting all excited until I read this!!

No Lola, it doesn't stop changing but it does slow down after the first few days.

Well at least mine seems to have! (you can get all excited again now) (lol)

Boy it (The magnesium) sure is a sticky business, it just gets all through your clothes and bedding, or maybe I am not using it correctly!

I haven't read the book, "Transdermal Magnesium", I just started spraying it on and rubbing it in, man it is sticky and bloody stings too!      Cheers John.

John, from what I've read, after 20 minutes or so, you can shower the mag oil off because it's all but been absorbed.  

I can't WAIT to get my order!  DH doesn't know what he's in for *wink wink*

Funky, not sure about the crystals, I'd have to read it closer.

Apparently, like someone said earlier, if your skin stings with full strength mag oil, you're deficient.  It's suggested that you dilute 50/50 or more till you can tolerate it.  Supposedly, after a few treatments, you get used to it and can use it full strength.  The gel is not as potent as the oil.  You can't over dose on magnesium oil.  The body will take what it needs and leave the rest.  
They say starting out with footbaths a few times a week, is the easiest way to get your mag built up in order to take it full strength.
Then, graduate to full body baths with it.
Then try massaging it into the skin--all over or just where there's pain and discomfort.
Of course, your mileage may vary.  Some can use it full strength from the beginning!
You can also make a paste of the powder and use it as a facial to cleanse pores and reduce fine lines.  Is there anything this stuff can't do?????  
By the way, it's not actually *oil*.  The viscosity of the sea water/magnesium makes it *feel* oily.

Hurry up and get here, already!

Thank you Scout!  Now about that paste... what do you make it with?  I rubbed the oil on my face last night - full strength - and it stung a bit but felt good.  Was very sticky all night.  So I can put it on and then wash it off after 20?  I can handle that cause my face was sticking to my pillow all night!  HAAA!!!  

I also put the gel on my calves hoping it would take away the Restless Leg Syndrome, but it didn't.. .maybe after time.

They say to put the gel all over your body after a shower, but I can't imagine being sticky all day!  Maybe I'll just put it on the moles and skin tags...

Also, how long does one leave it in the hair and the more important question... my hair has color on it... will it affect the color?  I'd love to not have to color it anymore.  I was going to try and just put it on the gray and not on the processed color area... any information on this?  I don't want my colored hair to turn orange or anything!!! Ha..!

Also I wonder if you have to keep putting the gel or oil in your hair to maintain your natural color....

Funky!    Yes, I believe you can wash it off after 20 minutes but don't quote me on the facial application!

Here are 29 pages that can answer a couple of your questions.

I plan on doing all my mag stuff after work so I won't have any issues whatsoever.

 
Part way through, a lady named Joan from the site I purchased from chimes in and answers a LOT of questions about the mag products.  She's also an herbalist.

The paste is made with her product called mag *snow*, I believe, its a powdered form.  

She also answers the hair color question somewhere in this lengthy thread!  

SUCH an interesting read!  I mistakenly thought that the link to the same t-tapp site in the first post in this thread was the same one I'm mentioning--but it's not!  

Check this out!

quote:

Jack Samuels, President of the Truth in Labeling Campaign, gives us more reason to avoid oral magnesium products. “Most, but not all of the magnesium being sold "over the counter" is chelated with neurotoxic substances. Magnesium glutamate is clearly of concern because the magnesium is chelated to neurotoxic glutamic acid. Magnesium aspartate is clearly of concern because the magnesium is chelated to neurotoxic aspartic acid, an amino acid that has been found by neuroscientists, in animal studies, to load on the same receptors in the brain as does glutamic acid, to cause identical brain lesions and neuroendocrine disorders as glutamic acid, and to act in an additive fashion with glutamic acid. Magnesium citrate is of concern because the magnesium has been chelated with citric acid. Most of the citric acid used in this country is made from corn. Producers of corn based citric acid do not take the time nor undertake the expense to remove all protein from the product. During production, the remaining protein is broken down, resulting in some glutamic acid and some aspartic acid. Some magnesium product producers now try to hide the presence of neurotoxins by stating that their magnesium is chelated with protein or with an amino acid. Finally, if a magnesium product is in a gelatin capsule, the gelatin is over 11% processed free glutamic acid (MSG].

After reading all this, will try mg   oil, as replacement to magnesium citrate.

What's the best way to use transdermal mag. for those of us who are pressed for time?  I don't have time to do all those things that you all are describing.  I do good just to get in a daily shower, prepare and take all my herbs and supplements, shop and cook all my food and work for a living.  

Is there a quicky way to get it in the skin that won't leave me so sticky that my clothes adhere permanently to my body?  

Just kidding. .

But really, what is the most simple version?  Foot baths?  Gel?  No time for a second shower every day to remove the film.

So here's what I did today... sorry Victoria, it's not a quick routine!  

I did my 45 minutes of Elliptical, stretched, took a Magnesium Crystal bath for 20 minutes, showered off and then rubbed 100% Magnesium oil all over my body, put my clothes on, and washed my hands.  

I'm very very relaxed and have a tingly feeling all over.  It's not too sticky.  I think I can live with this.

I'm planning to rub some of the gel into my gray areas shortly.

After reading those 29 pages of T-Tapp (whew) Joan said over and over that foot soaks are the most efficient - 10 to 30 min - with a rinse after to reduce stickiness.  Next best is to spray it on.  It is sticky once it dries (feels just like taking a dip in the ocean), but can be wiped off with a damp cloth after it dries, as you supposedly absorb all you can in 20 min.

Ah.. but the bath was absolutely delicious as far as my skin was concerned!  It was so relaxing overall... BUT if you don't have time... certainly the foot bath would be the next best.  

I was wondering if I could add bubbles to the bath hoping that it would not take away from the magnesium being fully absorbed... any thoughts?

Could you do a 20 minute foot bath a few times then try the gel?  
I'm still waiting for my stuff but one thing that seems to be stressed it that not all folks react the same way--so it's just a trial and error.
I'm going to start with a foot soak--most likely while I'm on the computer    and go from there.

I'd think the ingredients in the bubbles would absorb, too...not sure!  
So many questions!

You can call Joan's 800# she's CST, she's very generous and forthcoming with her knowledge.
