Chloe and Spring,
Please do start a thread re: minerals/alka vs. acid/aches in blood type A!!!!!
I am definitely interested!
I would like to be as informed as you ladies are.  
I haven't a clue how to make sure my body is balanced with acidity/alkalinity.
Not sure if I need extra magnesium or even which method to use.
My only aches/pains are occasional stiffness if I sit too long or lift weights not often enough. Once in a while I may get a foot/toe or calf/thigh cramp at night.
I worry about staying hydrated in my dry, hot environment.I rarely feel thirst.   


Anyone have a clue where this topic belongs?  I mean under what forum topic should I start this thread?
This doesn't seem to be a "supplement" topic....is it an ER4YT topic?  Just don't want to put this in the wrong
place....

I think this is appropriate...  Magnesium is available as a supplement, but like all supplements, can be found in foods as well...

I have been getting my magnesium from robust molasses.  It seems to be the best-tolerated form I can find.


Confused....my question was in relation to a recent post by cajun (see post 99-102)....responding to the chats
Spring and I have had on this thread....believing it might be hijacking this magnesium thread
as we were getting off topic.....So, now there are 3 of us in agreement that
our slightly off topic conversation about ph, and other minerals needed to be moved to another
thread.  I would gladly start that thread entitled "type A -balancing acidity, alkalinity/aches/pains"
but I couldn't figure out what category was appropriate for this thread.  Is it really a thread for supplements?

I'm still thinking about a title for this subject that has been on my mind for some time, but simply haven't had the time to research it as I should before posting anything about it.

Listen A's as you are /// yes others are piping in also because we learn even through the back door.

But if you should not wish to hear from any 'others' just say so after each post from them.. they will see your objections and they can delete it for 4 days.

As for the topic we all learn, and that makes us more aware of differences.. Nothing wrong with some wrong answers like my experience with diabetes, I am happy you A's are less likely to have it.

Yet, I thought this interesting enough to post it twice!

Quoted Text
I don't think O-types have anything to worry about having too much acid. In fact, it seems to me that they thrive on it! The more the better! The pain I have been having isn't a cramp, it is downright pain, and raising my alkaline level helps it. I had been having trouble sleeping lately but when I got my alkaline levels into a decent range I have slept and rested wonderfully!

This is a very complicated subject, but one thing is certain, we must supply our individual bodies with what they need to get into the "comfort zone." If too much activity and stress deplete our stores, our acid level will go up because our blood is grabbing everything  it needs from bones or anything else it can to stay normal. We are going to suffer if we don't take measures to replenish our bodies with the right foods and supplements. In effect, the blood will be robbing Peter to pay Paul and we are the losers if we don't do something about it. I've seen too many A-Types looking old as the hills when they are decades younger than I am. Not only do they look old, they consider themselves old and some of them are in their fifties! Is it because they are losing ground because of too much acid because of stress upon stress upon stress of all kinds for years? I can't help but wonder about too much acid taking its toll. When you think of people smoking, drinking harmful beverages by the gallon, eating the common, mostly junk diet in this country, besides not eating according to their blood type, and all of this being conducive to an acidic condition, it horrifies me.  


A thread on:'Mineral acid/alcaline for A's Only'   is what you are grabbing at... go for it I will not pipe in. promise. As for others just be pleasant with a standard precise message that tells them to bug out...    If such 'do not this or that' message is precise, and politely worded, and repeated often - always with the same standard words - then Understanding happens and no one would object.  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Hi all,

Yes, this topic should probably be in Eat Right forum, because alkalinizing is all about food.

I spend my life trying to alkalinize, because I know that is the cause of my psoriatic arthritis. I probably touched on that fact in my thread about PsA. One of my long term symptoms has been burning in my bladder, and yes, I am afraid of getting bladder cancer. I juice and take Himalayan salt and eat lots of salads and other veggies in an attempt to alkalinize. I think I wrote something in my thread about the most alkaline foods- or I did in some thread.

Again, they are alkaline water, Himalayan salt, grasses, cucumber, kale, kelp, spinach, parsley, broccoli, sprouts, sea veggies, and green drinks. Of which I will pour some more as we speak. And yes, minerals! They buffer acids and are vital.

I will start a thread in Eat Right for this called Alkalinity. If someone can move this part of the topic there, it would be great.

OK, Lola didn't want that moved.


You guys are great!

On the Warpath! Grrrr, watch out!

Without reading through this entire thread.. which type of magnesium supplement is best to take.. we have been taking Magnesium Citrate 400mg every night.

I take it at night before bed because it makes me sleepy.

Is this ok?  

I have tried the topical Magnesium Oil and I do not like it.  

Also are we supposed to take anything else with it?  I just ordered Calcium Supplements as I read you are supposed to take Magnesium and Calcium together.  

Thanks much for your help.

My understanding is that the calcium/magnesium balance matters more than the total amounts of either one. Most Americans get way too much calcium via diet, and taking cal/mag supplements don't do anything to correct that imbalance- the supplements are completely worthless. Supplementing with JUST magnesium, however, helps many people.

Since you're on SWAMI, presumably you don't eat a lot of dairy and you do eat a lot of greens. You may or may not be getting enough calcium in your diet.

A good book on the subject is The Magnesium Miracle by Caroline Dean. There's also a facebook group where she responds.  https://www.facebook.com/groups/MagnesiumAdvocacy/

So Magnesium Citrate is ok?

I don't eat any dairy except for a bit of cheese each week and I don't get greens on a daily basis - maybe every other day.  

i am going to take the Clear Cal so I should be ok.

According to the muscle response testing I just did for my DD, Magnesium Citrate is the best form for her to use...  It seemed like the major problem was all of the additives in the capsule that made the most difference, however.  We found one made by Now brand that only has rice flour and the capsule and filling stuffs that was the best for her...
