My life changed dramatically since I began long-term supplementation of Magnesium (~1,000mg/day).  Just a few days without it, and I feel terrible.  I recently got a fellow non-secretor friend with bowel irregularity to start using it, and she says the same thing.  Wondering if specific blood type/secretor combinations are at a greater need for Mg?

I take Magnesium every day, 200 up to 400 mg per day..

Magnesium can also be inhaled and by the skin by bathing in magnesiumchloride or envelopped in a magn packing. Or by bathing your feet in a magnesiumbath!

I will be trained on the 17th of March by the Dutch Magnesium Institute to be a Magnesium therapist.
I follow this course because in France I will need this certificate in the Wellnesscenter in Lalouvesc on the Domaine of La Vie Tara. (www.lavietara.nl)
Magnesium absorbed by the skin is the ultimate way, as you can never overdose in this way!

Eric, you take a huge dose of Magnesium!!  :o :o That dose would give me diarrea  :-/ :-/

Eric, which one do you use? Do you use glycinate or something along the lines of a Natural Calm?

I started using magnesium years ago when I discovered it helped reduce migraine pain, and continue to take it with calcium.

400mg of magnesium citrate. A health food store worker who was BTD certified told me years ago to take it to reduce my every other year rate of kidney stones. It worked like a charm.

I use intrinsa but try to include foods that have it, also sea salt things like that.

I am using Calmag. I am sleeping better. I do wish it was more calcium, less magnesium though. Straight magnesium doesn't work on me. It seems I am always low on calcium which causes a lot of hypertension issues, and heart issues.

Interesting - I take Vitamin D (calciferol, i.e., absorbs calcium) with magnesium for a similar balancing effect.  Those are the only two supplements that I absolutely depend on.  Everything else is just pleasantry and experimentation. lol

I use magnesium oil spray...and orally take 500 mg glycinate twice a day with a total of 6,000 iu of D..  I take no calcium supplements... I get plenty from food.  My muscles love magnesium...don't seem to want or need calcium.  Magnesium supplementation totally got rid of my tight muscles.
And I sleep like a baby! :)

I am a B+ Nomad so I NEED magnesium! It keeps my asthma under control (I am asymptomatic as long as I follow the GTD) and helps with my female cramps. I take the cheapie kind since that is all I can afford right now.

I always take Mg on a daily basis.

I use Natural calm with calcium, no sulfites which I have developed an allergy to. Feel great with it, supper crappy without and have awful leg cramps and then can't do yoga. :o

I use mag oil spray over my whole body (except feet, lower arms, and hands) every day, sometimes twice a day. Occasionally I take epsom salts baths (if so, that's at night, and then the mag oil followed by a shower in the morning.)

I used to take mag citrate or mag malate, but I'm now afraid of corn contamination in either one. I tried the mag oil orally, and it caused loose stools and GI discomfort. I do best getting all my magnesium through my skin plus whatever I get through foods, rather than taking oral supplements.

I do much  better without calcium supplementation. If I take calcium, I need to double or triple my magnesium.

If it doesn't have calcium in it, it just acts like a laxative for me. Perhaps if my digestion would process stuff normally I would acquire enough calcium and magnesium wouldn't just make my GI dump.

I do take Vitamin D, currently, as well.

Christopher, you think Nederlanders take small doses of supps??  :o :o
I agree we are on the 'safe' side, Nederlanders.. ;D ;D

I remember Eric taking huge doses ( I thought 8.000 IU per day) of vit D3.
This dose gave me rashes..  :-/ so I stick to my dutch doses!!  ::)

I have extenuating circumstances, so I don't know that my comments count.  But I still have to take it just about every single day.  Way more than should be needed.

I'm beginning to think I can't live without magnesium either. I have quite high calcium levels (10.2) and too high blood phosphate, not sure if this has something to do with magnesium or not.

I took it diligently when I was on a loading vitamin D programme, after reading they work in synergy and that sometimes problems with vitamin D supplementation (constipation etc) is caused by magnesium deficiency.

I also take lots of magnesium (citrate) if I have period pains or really bad migraines. Generally I take about 300 or 450 mg a day. 600 during desperate times!

I used to use Magnesium oil spray every day, until I got saturated and felt terribly exhausted for a few days. Then I knew it was time to stop. Since two of those episodes occurred, I have stopped taking magnesium. I feel that I don't depend on it anymore. Perhaps I already have enough in my diet.

I bought a bottle of liquid ionic magnesium..400mg dropper...thinking I needed it for cellular energy/aging cells ... ??) does this make sense? I purchased it months ago and haven't taken it yet. I do take Dr. D's polyvite and phytocal (mag citrate) so I wonder if I actually would benefit from more? ??)

Dr. D. obviously set the ratio of calcium to magnesium in phytocal to what he thinks most people of your blood type would need.

Some of us find we do better with more. Since you have magnesium, you may want to try taking it if any of these are an issue for you:

Not sleeping through the night,
constipation,
muscle contractions and cramps
muscle weakness
depression,
nausea,
vomiting,
fatigue,
numbness,
tingling,
seizures,
abnormal heart rhythm

I supplement every day with 100mg mag glycinate 4 times and when I get up and go to bed I put a saturated solution of Epsom salts on quite a large portion of my skin.
I use it primarily for helping keep afib at bay.

Magnesium seasalt foot bath as I feel I need it (sometimes Intrinsa). I think I was severely deficient and got topped up. I wasn't absorbing minerals in the gut. Need to go have my green smoothie now (got away from these for a long time)...

I depend on Intrinsa to both help keep me regular and to get a decent sleep at night.

I have been using it since 09'.  I went to an acupuncturist due to anger problems, and he said i had some liver congestion.  He prescribed daily supplementation with magnesium, and i find it very helpful.  

I used to have muscle twitching and anxiety, and it went away.  Also helps with a lot of functions in the body.

I use magnesium caps, and they contain 100 percent daily value per cap.

Okay Christopher! Leuk om ook via dit forum Mede-Nederlanders te ontmoeten!

Jij komt binnenkort naar Nederland, mijn man en ik vertrekken 1 juli naar Frankrijk om daar het grootste deel van het jaar te gaan wonen! Nederlanders zijn toch wel een mobiel volkje.. ;D
