Why Transdermal Magnesium?

There is a power and a force in magnesium chloride that cannot be equalled anywhere else in the world of medicine. There is no substitute for magnesium in human physiology; nothing comes even close to it in terms of its effect on overall cell physiology.

Nothing short of a miracle is to be expected with increases in the cellular levels of magnesium if those levels have been depleted. There is no wonder drug that can claim, in the clear, what magnesium chloride can do. Most people will show dramatic improvements in the state of their health when they replete their magnesium levels in an effective manner.

“Magnesium is poorly absorbed orally" - Dr. Sarah Myhill

Magnesium chloride, applied transdermally is the ideal magnesium delivery system with medical benefits unequalled in the entire world of medicine. Yet one does not need a doctor to prescribe or administer it. One can simply put it on the skin and have someone massage you for sublime effect.

Our cells are best served when they
are brimming with magnesium reserves

It goes against a strong gale wind of medical science to ignore magnesium chloride used transdermally in the treatment of any chronic or acute disorder.

Daniel Reid, author of Tao of Detox says, “Using magnesium oil is the quickest and most convenient way to transmit magnesium chloride into the cells and tissues through the skin.

2-3 sprays under each armpit function as a highly effective deodorant, while at the same time transporting magnesium swiftly through the thin skin into the glands, lymph channels, and bloodstream, for distribution throughout the body.

Spray it onto the back of the hand or the top of the feet any time of day or night for continuous magnesium absorption. Regardless of where you apply the spray on the body, once it penetrates the surface of the skin, the body transports it to whichever tissues need magnesium most.”

Our need for magnesium has increased due to toxic exposure. We need increasing amounts of antioxidants like Vitamin C, A, E, and minerals like magnesium, selenium and zinc to deal with the toxic overloads.

The clinical situation is so bad that when it comes to magnesium, people with chronic diseases can be sure that their levels will be very low. This means that they will respond exceptionally well to treatments with magnesium chloride.

The cause and cure of many physical illnesses can be as simple as correcting a magnesium deficiency

Magnesium chloride treatments:
·        address systemic nutritional deficiencies
·        improve the function of our cells and immune system
·        help protect cells from oxidative damage
·        activate your vital enzyme processes
·        increase energy levels (speed up mitochondrial production of    ATP adenosine triphosphate) 
·        help people to sleep
·        lower blood pressure
·        increase sports performance
·        alleviate pain
·        help repair injuries
·        increase the oxygen carrying capacity of the red blood cells
·        ensure that insulin is produced and received by the cells.
·        improve digestion
·        calm the nervous system
·        lower blood sugar levels
·        strengthen nails and hair.

Magnesium is a systemic medicine as well as a local one bringing new life and energy to the cells wherever it is applied topically. Transdermal magnesium therapy offers us the opportunity to get dosages up to the powerful therapeutic range without compromising intestinal comfort through oral use alone.

Magnesium is important and desperately needed because it is so terribly deficient in people that even at low concentrations people have felt results. It is basic to our life processes and is vitally important to our bodies, minds and emotions. No wonder the Chinese called it “The most beautiful metal.”

Most doctors and patients think of magnesium chloride as a medicine that can be injected while you are having a heart attack and it does save the day for both heart and stroke patients if used quickly enough.

Magnesium chloride and Vitamin C have similar toxicity profiles, with overdose from both resulting at worst usually in diarrhea unless the kidneys are seriously compromised.

Transdermal delivery of medicines is generally considered safer, more efficient, convenient and less painful than injections or IV’s.

Most people will show dramatic improvements in the state of their health when they replete their magnesium levels in an effective manner.
Intensive transdermal and oral magnesium therapy can be safely applied day in and day out for consistent health benefits.  Magnesium oil is nothing short of a miracle to a person deficient in magnesium. So clear and observable are the effects that there is no mistake, no mysticism, no false claim made. There are not too many medicinal substances or medicines that can make this claim

Why Magnesium Chloride?

Magnesium chloride is easily assimilated and metabolized in the human body

All the forms of magnesium available on the market are not equally effective. In one study four different forms of magnesium were compared and they found a significantly higher availability and absorption from magnesium chloride.

According to Daniel Reid, author of The Tao of Detox, magnesium sulfate, commonly known as Epsom salts, is rapidly excreted through the kidneys and therefore difficult to assimilate.

For purposes of cellular detoxification and tissue purification, the most effective form of magnesium is magnesium chloride, which has a strong excretory effect on toxins and stagnant energies stuck in the tissues of the body, drawing them out through the pores of the skin.

This is a powerful hydrotherapy that:
·        draws toxins from the tissues
·        replenishes the “vital fluid” of the cells
·        increases circulation
·        alleviates pain
·        calms the nervous system
·        relaxes skeletal muscles

·       draws inflammation out of the muscles and joints

Chloride is an “essential” mineral for humans. It is a major mineral nutrient that occurs primarily in body fluids. It serves as one of the main electrolytes of the body. Chloride salts are essential for sustaining human metabolism. It combines with hydrogen in the stomach to make hydrochloric acid, a powerful digestive enzyme.

It helps to govern the pH balance and transport of carbon dioxide from the body. It works in the nervous system to aid in the transport of electrical impulses throughout the body.

Chloride toxicity has not been observed in humans except in the special case of congestive heart failure. Healthy individuals can tolerate the intake of large quantities of chloride provided that there is an intake of fresh water. Suggested amount of chloride intake ranges from 750 to 900 milligrams per day,

In summary, chloride is a highly important, vital mineral required for both human and animal life. Without chloride, the human body would be unable to maintain fluids in blood vessels, conduct nerve transmissions, move muscles, or maintain proper kidney function.

Using other magnesium salts is less advantageous because these have to be converted into chlorides in the body anyway. We may use magnesium as oxide or carbonate but then we need to produce additional hydrochloric acid to absorb them.

Many aging individuals, especially with chronic diseases who desperately need more magnesium cannot produce sufficient hydrochloric acid and then cannot absorb the oxide or carbonate.

Epsom salt is magnesium sulphate. It is soluble but not well absorbed and acts mainly as a laxative. Chelated magnesium is well absorbed but much more expensive and lacks the beneficial contribution of the chloride ions. Orotates are good but very expensive for the amount of magnesium that they provide and both orotates and chelates seem to lack the infection-fighting potential of the magnesium chloride.
Magnesium Chloride for Health and Rejuvenation by Walter Last November 27, 2006
There are literally hundreds of other health benefits to using magnesium:

v    Necessary for energy production (ATP)
v    Required by 325 enzymes in the body as well as ion transport
v    Protects our cells from heavy metals and toxins
v    Insulin production
v    Prevents calcification of soft tissues (ensures that calcium is stored in the bones and not the soft tissues thereby preventing kidney stones, gallstones, atherosclerosis)
v    Lowers blood pressure (through it's vasodilating effect)
v    Anti-thrombotic effect (prevents blood clots)
v    Natural tranquilizer which calms and nourishes the nervous system (treats epilepsy, ADHD, insomnia as well as Restless Legs Syndrome)
v    Cancer preventative (membrane permeability, detoxification, energy production)
v    Boosts the immune system
v    Prevents spasms associated with Multiple Sclerosis, IBS (relaxes both skeletal and smooth muscle)
v    Ensures proper absorption of nutrients from our food
v    Lubricates and facilitates heart function
