I am always on the lookout for patients that might be having magnesium deficiency symptoms like headaches and muscle pain, but sometimes, it takes me by surprise!
One day, coming to the end of a couple of difficult stressful weeks, I was having trouble getting through the afternoon. I felt like something was wrong... maybe I didn't get enough sleep... maybe I was getting sick... I had no energy... I was really starting to hurt! My whole body hurt from head to toe, but especially my legs. I could barely think clearly enough to treat my patients.
A patient came in that was suffering migraines as a result of a car accident, so I offered her some trial packets of magnesium to see if it would help her headaches, because that can often be part of the problem.
Then it dawned on me...
Maybe I was magnesium deficient!
At home, I had run out of my magnesium supplement a few weeks earlier, life was crazy, and I had neglected to get more. I started to run down the list of Magnesium Deficiency Symptoms...
I thought, I have way too many of these symptoms going on right now to be a coincidence! So I immediately mixed two sample packets of Natural Calm Magnesium, and drank them in a glass of water.
Ten minutes later, I was done with patients... and with the pain in my legs!
I was astounded, and so was my receptionist, who had checked in to see how I was doing 20 minutes before, because I was really dragging.
I am NOT going to get deficient again.
I have learned my lesson!
At least I hope I did. Physician heal thyself!
I use Natural Calm Magnesium by Natural Vitality (pictured above). I know you are going to ask about dosing. You are going to have to follow your gut on this one - literally!
You start with one rounded teaspoon and see how your bowels
are. If they don't change, then up your dose to one and a half teaspoons and then two teaspoons. You
keep going up until your bowels get slightly loose. Another way to check it, is
to rate all your magnesium deficiency symptoms, and slowly raise your dose
until they disappear. If you already have loose bowels, you may not be able to
absorb this form of magnesium. Instead, try Ionic Magnesium.
