That's so wonderful, Maukik!!  

Here's something else that could possibly help ~
I've been rinsing my mouth with a solution of baking soda and sea salt for a long time, just to get a healthy PH for the gums and teeth.  It occurred to me that the inside of the mouth would absorb magnesium also;  so I have been adding magnesium to the mix.  I slosh and hold it in my mouth for as long as I can, then spit.  A nice side effect is that mag. is supposed to help to remineralize the teeth.



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

yup...I do that too, and brush my teeth with it a few times a week as well. My teeth have never been whiter!

Victoria, I've been doing the same thing for a week.....Water, baking soda, no sea salt because
I take a tsp of sole in plain water when I wake up....but I spray about 12 sprays of mag oil into
my mouth before drinking some baking soda/water....and hold it and swish it for about 20
minutes while I'm showering and getting dressed.  By the time I brush my teeth, though, my
mouth feels like cotton, although my teeth are so much whiter.

I thought the same thing....magnesium oil has to be transdermally absorbed in the mouth as
well as the rest of the body.

As for sole, that's a whole other subject....that would require another thread if anyone is interested in chatting about it.

Chloe, I drank a sole solution for at least a couple of years.  Then I think I reached a saturation point where it didn't appeal to me so I stopped.  But I started using more salt in my cooking, which I enjoy a lot!  Especially that yummy Himalayan Crystal salt!

I drank it for a few years, stopped for a few years and just started using it again.  I do that
too...I know when my body wants something then quits needing it.  Nice to have a smart body
that speaks to me so very quietly!

Great idea!  I will suggest he do that and I am sure he will try it.  He has to take meticulous care of his mouth because once radiated you don't want to have any work done on your teeth if you can help it.  And they can disintegrate easily because of the destruction radiation does to the bone.  Prior to radiation they tell you to go have all of the dental work done, teeth pulled, that you think you may ever have a problem with...that is what caused one of his worst side effects.  

He had a wisdom tooth pulled about 2 weeks before starting radiation.  His gut told him not to do it, but they instilled such fear in him that he went ahead and had it done.  First mistake of several.  He went back a week later because he was having so much pain.  They said that was normal, he didn't think so, but left, came home and lived with it for a week.  He started radiation, still having a lot of pain.  I looked in his mouth and he had an obvious abscess.  We went to the oncology dentist, they looked into his mouth and said everything looked fine, pushing us out the door.  I said, "what is that red, edematous, hot area there in his mouth".  They called in another dentist.  He took one look and said YES, infected.  That was the beginning of multiple surgeries on his jaw, loss of jaw bone and some teeth, trismus (the inability to open your mouth, in his case less than your little finger would fit), septicemia, a PICC line, nearly dying, a feeding tube (not so unusual with that kind of cancer), all while getting daily radiation, broken jawbone for over two years (vitamin D healed that after 40 hyperbaric oxygen treatments early on didn't ), ongoing physical dependence to morphine and on and on.

Lesson: Getting on my soapbox now...I pay my good hard earned money to a doctor because he has education, knowledge and expertise that I do not have.  As far as blindly following what he tells me to do, I do not, (with the exception of Dr D, so far lo these 13 or so years, but that is because he makes incredible sense to me).  I appreciate and take what a doctor says, sometimes do exactly what he/she says, sometimes think about it, sometimes ask others, sometimes search online, etc. I have known great doctors and not so great.  I love my doctors and usually do exactly what they recommend, not always.  I do not feel that is disrespecting the doctor, I have paid him for his knowledge.  If he feels offended, he will have to get over it.  I would not expect anyone to do what I tell them to do if it does not make sense to them or if they feel it isn't right for them.  When friends and family call me for advise (an everday occurance), it does sometimes frustrate me that they take my time and don't try what I recommend, as in "you might want to stop drinking all of that milk you blood type A" (only nicer). (I don't practice medicine, I am only a nurse, I simply tell them what I would do, which many times is just, "you better call the doctor".  If I were being paid, it would be a different matter.  They could call me and disregard what I tell them if they want.  It was a fair exchange.  I think I would consider it the end of the deal (other than my overall concern for their well-being).  

I know you didn't ask for all of that, geeze were were just talking about magnesium oil being good for the teeth, but I think it is important to seek expert advise then use your own brain, follow your gut.  I have many other stories about loved ones who did not do that and paid a very high price or the ultimate price.

Back to the subject.  My husband's neck was starting to stiffen just a little today; nothing like yesterday.  We will use the mag oil tonight and I will report back.  

Thanks everybody for your comments.

TMI?

Had to share this...never knew there could be a magnesium deficiency connection to hair
loss.

I used to randomly find lots of hair in my shower drain...thinking it could be aging, low thyroid
or stress...but lately, I don't see much hair in the drain...and I've been diligently
spraying magnesium oil all over my body in the morning for the past 4 weeks.  Wonder if
anyone else has noticed their hair isn't falling out (if it was)  I always thought thinning hair
was expected as one aged.  Don't think so anymore.  Magnesium deficiency.  WOW!

Maukik, I am so glad that your husband is reaping the benefits of the mag oil.  The stuff is amazing!

I have stopped using it on my chest, where I had the rash, for the past three days.  The rash is clearing up.  My shoulders and bum still get quite red and sting, but that is ok.  It goes away after a short time.

I was interested to hear that some people dilute it with oil instead of distilled water.  Maybe that would ease the incidence of the rash?

Patty, are you real fair skinned?  So far, only 2 doses, it hasn't burned my husband. He just put some on again and it really is amazing how different his neck feels.  He is not real fair skinned.
I was wondering if using oil would cause the absorption to be slower or different. Is there somewhere else on your body that is a little tougher that you could try?

Victoria, he came right in and did a mouth cleanse using the mag oil when I told him what you guys are doing with it.  I am going to try it that way, too.  

I haven't used it at all yet.  I may tonight.  I had been soaking my feet in epsom salt every night.  That was relaxing.  I was falling asleep 2 hrs earlier doing that.  Went from 2am to midnight.

I have a feeling that the oil would slow absorption.  Not necessarily a bad thing.  Since applying it to the skin leaves a kind of "salty-ish" coating (much like swimming in the ocean and not rinsing it off), it might feel more comfortable to use the oil with it.

No, Lola.  He never smoked.  He drank alcohol occasionally.  

He is an A.  I suspect he is a warrior based on his measurements.  Could be an explorer because of all of his illnesses.  He contracted polio on his 2nd birthday.  He had a poor diet, huge milk drinker, lived on hot dogs.  He still does not follow the BTD.  I have tried cooking for him.  He likes, and will eat some things, but then he eats so many foods that he shouldn't eat.  He admires the way I eat and the changes in my health/appearance, but he tells me not to worry about fixing food for him. To be honest, it is all I can do to prepare food for myself.  If he would follow the diet, I would invest the time.  I make a lot of veggie things that he could eat, but he doesn't. At least he is not eating beef now.  His taste buds were destroyed, along with his saliva glands when he had radiation, and he lost his taste for beef.  The taste buds and saliva glands have healed slightly. He still has a lot of dairy.

He has health insurance, I don't have any.  I am very motivated to be as healthy as I can be, not to mention how much better I feel. But, I was that way when I had health insurance and he had always been one that would rather have a surgery/pill and eat whatever.  Hard for me to fathom when he has suffered so many illnesses.

Yes, maukik, I am very fair skinned.  In fact I went to a dermatologist recently and he pointed out how many freckles I have and how fair skinned I am.  I sometimes forget because I always use tinted moisturizer with spf in it.

It does not burn as much when I apply it to my legs and arms.  Honestly, though, I am not too bothered by the redness an slight burning on my other body parts.  I stopped using it on my chest which has helped.  I feel I need it so I am powering through it!

Thank you, Lola.  All of that is just the tip of the iceburg.  But, I have a lot of joy in my life, too.  

I used our new magnesium oil last night.  I woke up moving my shoulder, that has been aching when I move it in a certain direction lately, with perfect ease.  That ache had gone away completely with leaving off wheat and sugar, but has returned (not as badly) with carrying around my youngest 17 mo. old grandchild.  I just can't not do that  .

I find SWANSON'S to be the cheapest for those in the USA and equal to Ancient Minerals.  Both are from the same Zechstein sea bed.  I started with this 3 pack and later bought a gallon.
