Magnesium Deficiency

Magnesium deficiency in humans can be mild or severe, and studies suggest it is more and more common. Reports published by the World Health Organization have estimated that three quarters of Americans do not meet the Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) of magnesium.

How serious is this problem? Average magnesium intake in the U.S. has dwindled to less than half what it was a century ago:

•           In the year 1900: 500 mg per day
•           Today: 175-225 mg per day

Magnesium deficiency has far-reaching impacts on health and well-being. Evidence has linked insufficient intake to a variety of conditions and symptoms, from simple irritability to chronic pain to life-threatening disease… continue reading HERE

Judith Todero: Magnesium spray for shoulder is in constant pain and can’t grasp anything.

“Hello, my name is Judith Todero, and I’m a nutritionist, an author, and a speaker.
Part of the problem, I think, in trying to find natural and safe products to enhance our health is that the manufacturer’s hands are tied when it comes to making claims or telling people their benefits. There is, however, no law in the land that precludes us from helping ourselves with so many of the wonderful products that are on the market today.

I just want to say I very, very, rarely lend my name or recommendation to products, but I’m so impressed with the transdermal magnesium line from LL Magnetic Clay that I wanted to share my experiences with the public so perhaps others can benefit. This is really the only way some people find out about these great products.

I do a lot of research in trying to locate unusual health products, but in this case I had a personal motivation. I have an elderly mom, and I love her dearly as we all love our moms. But her shoulder is in constant pain — it’s almost frozen. She really can’t even use her hand much; she can’t grasp anything.

Unfortunately, this is her right hand, and it has really limited her ability to do anything. She loves to can foods; and even though she’s elderly, she’s very spry and loves to do things on her own.

I was looking for a product that would help her, and that’s when I found the magnesium flakes and the magnesium spray.

Amazingly, in a few days it has made such a difference!

It’s the biggest surprise because as you know when we’re elderly, our bodies heal much slower, and she’s in her mid-80s. She’s not a spring chicken even though she likes to think she is!

Well, when that happened and I saw how much it helped her, I said, ‘My clients need to know about this.’

So, one client who has severe ankle pain: She’s used the magnesium spray. The pain is totally gone.

I use it because it really helps with more relaxed sleep!

I put another client on it, and I told her to put a little bit on her temple — to put a little bit on the hairline on her neck, because she has terrible headaches. The headaches are totally gone.

So, my opinion is too many people are over medicated. You know the drugs in this country: We’re so flamboyant with using this prescription and that prescription! People are just so tired of being over medicated, and they are looking for something that is safe, that is natural, that can help them relieve pain, that can help them relax.

In my opinion, the magnesium spray, the magnesium flakes, the gel — there are so many benefits to using these products.

People are just hungry for natural and safe alternatives. So I look forward to helping many of my clients. And I do hope that this little message will help many out there.

Whether it’s for your mom, for yourself, for your friend — give them a try because these products work. Thank you so much.”

Lois from Tennessee: No longer have the leg aches or cramps.

“I’m certain my magnesium level has been low for a long time and while I cannot relate my experiences with the Ancient Minerals transdermal magnesium through medical testing, my observation is that it has helped to resupply my magnesium level.

I no longer have the leg aches or cramps I used to have and I’m sleeping better at night and do not seem to have as much tension. These are great benefits!

In the past, I’ve used two other types of transdermal magnesium from other companies, one being a gel and the other an oil.

I’ve found the Ancient Minerals transdermal is not as irritating to my skin.

It definitely absorbs into the skin better and it doesn’t make me itch like the other transdermal products I’ve tried. My preference is to rub it onto my skin right after a shower and wear it throughout the day. I never could have left the other two magnesium products on throughout the day as I do with the Ancient Minerals! I always had to wash those types off after no more than 30-60 minutes of wearing them because they either didn’t soak in properly or they made my skin itch as well as feel like it was burning.

I’ve found the Ancient Minerals can be put on areas of soreness, for example an aching knee, and it does seem to help take the general aches out from that area.

My conclusion is that it is the best transdermal product available on the market (at least that I know about) and seems to be more pure than others I’ve used.”

Brian Hirsch from Massachusetts: Magnesium gel for direct massage on many elderly clients.

“I have been massaging five of my clients up to three times a week with the Ancient Mineral Magnesium Gel for a month now. I found the oil is a little too potent for direct massage on many elderly clients with thin skin especially in light of thinners, etc. The magnesium gel is much better received.

For nearly four weeks one of my 86 year old clients has been receiving the gel on his legs arms shoulders and chest via massage three times per week only. Some of this client’s maladies were: practically non responsive 90% of the time; difficulty walking; latter stages of retinal neuropathy; and was in consistent excruciating cervical pain.

Recently he has been walking to the bathroom unaided and started reading again for the first time in a year! My client has not complained for over a week about his neck. He converses much more, and is more responsive.

These are not my observations only. The home care nurses have all remarked upon the miraculous recovery he has made.

I would love to take credit for it, but my massage has not changed. The only thing that has changed in my clients vast medical protocol and diet preparation… is the Ancient Minerals magnesium gel.

I am amazed!

I have 28 years of massage therapy experience and so far what I am anecdotally observing regarding this magnesium gel is very impressive. I have been searching for a viable magnesium vector for my clients and now I have it. Thanks!”

Diane: Fibromyalgia.

“My name is Diane and I have fibromyalgia. I have suffered with stinging and burning all over actually, but mostly in my legs.

My sister uses your magnesium spray, and she has been telling me about it. She sent me a bottle of it in the mail; and I was thinking, ‘Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, it’s probably just another natural remedy that’s not going to work.’

The moment I sprayed it on my legs, it instantly took the stinging and burning away, and I was just in awe. I could not believe that there was actually a product out there that worked!
I am so excited about it that I’m going to be sending some to all my friends that have fibromyalgia, because they all suffer with that. And I am just so happy to find something that — that has given me relief. I can’t wait to pass it on to others!

So, I thank you for a wonderful, wonderful product.

And I hope that many people will be helped like I have. And it’s just — it’s just wonderful! So, thank you very much. Bye, bye.”

Carmen Kulik: Spasm and neck pain.

“Hello, my name is Carmen Kulik. I just started using the product last week. I called and was quickly sent some samples. I have been undergoing physical therapy and chiropractic care for neck pain and stiffness, and also taking special exercises and was having still a lot of spasm and neck pain.

Since I’ve started using the Magnetic [Magnesium] Oil, rubbing it in, and doing it at night and in the morning — right away I noticed a difference. I’ve been not totally pain free, but a great improvement.

I’m able to function much better, and I’m going to keep using the product.

And I hope this helps others. I have given this referral to others here at work that are suffering from different ailments, and they also are going to try the product. So far this has been a wonderful thing to try to use and see how far I can go with it.

It’s helping me to function better, which is a blessing. Thank you. Bye!”

Ned Barlowe, Thompson Falls, MT: Back problems.

“My name is Ned Barlowe, and I live in Thompson Falls, Montana. I am 67 years old, and up until about a year ago, I could shovel the snow out of my driveway without too many problems.

Thompson, Montana gets a lot of snow, so I shovel on a regular basis around here. Well, about a year ago, I started having back problems that have just been getting worse as the days go by.

It has gotten so bad that I already know that I am going to be laid up in bed for at least 3-4 days every time I clean that driveway off. The wife and I can’t afford to hire someone, so I have to do it, or we can’t get out to get our groceries or do our errands.

Last month, I saw an ad in a health magazine that we subscribe to — for your Ancient Mineral products. I ordered the magnesium chloride oil and a jar of flakes, because my wife likes to take baths. It got here pretty quick, and I tried it first. I put on the oil three days in a row, and then I had to shovel that driveway again.

I was all ready for the pain and the three or four days in bed, but got the surprise of my life. I not only skipped the pain, but I felt pretty darn good!

In fact, I felt so good that I offered to clean the lady next door’s driveway, too; as she is a widow and does not have much money either.

Just wanted to thank you for the great products and the help it gave me. There are so many products out there, that sometimes you just don’t know which one is going to work. Keep up the good work, and I will keep shoveling my driveway!”

Samantha Gordon, Provo, UT: Migraines are most likely a cause of severe magnesium deficiency.

“For about the last 10 years, I would get migraines at least 2 times per week. These migraines were debilitating, I couldn’t sleep, eat, work….nothing. I would just lie in bed with the lights off and just hope it would go away. My doctors, at the time, put me on every medication you can think of that was supposed to help migraines. I was also on a migraine preventative everyday.

I tried weekly massages, ice, heat, baths, and acupuncture; I was doing anything and everything possible to get rid of it. Although these treatments would help, they were only temporary.

One day, I went to my weekly massage appointment. I walked in and my therapist was so excited to see me. She said that she is now carrying a product called Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil and Gel and that she wanted to try the gel in my session instead of a lotion.

She called it ‘Magnesium Massage’. She said that she had done research and that magnesium chloride helps with migraines and that my migraines are most likely a cause of severe magnesium deficiency. I figured, why not? I would’ve tried anything at that point!

After my massage session, I already started feeling better. My therapist gave me a sample of the oil and some literature and suggested that I should try applying the oil on daily, so I did.
As soon as my sample was finished, I knew this was a product that I could not go without. 

Every week my normal deep tissue massage sessions were now always magnesium massage sessions and I purchased the half gallon from her.

I have used it for about 60 days now, and not ONE migraine, not even one headache.

This product is amazing and has completely changed my life. I don’t have to miss work, I sleep like a log, I’m happier and more stable all because of one mineral that I was deficient in. Why this wasn’t recommended to me earlier, I will never know!”

Christine Gable, Pensacola FL: Restless legs syndrome (RLS)

“My name is Christine Gable, and I am writing to you about my experience with Ancient Minerals, specifically the magnesium oil. I have had RLS for six years now, and was beginning to wonder whether this was something I had to live with for the rest of my life.

I have been to four different doctors, and all of them had different ideas as to what was causing this, including one who said it was stress. The only stress I had was from the RLS, so needless to say, I was not too happy with that diagnosis’s I am not a big fan of pharmaceuticals, but after you have had this problem for any length of time, you are just about open to anything that remotely sounds like a fix.

I have tried everything from painkillers, anti-depressants, muscle relaxers and hot baths every night. I even tried yoga, because one of my friends told me that stretching would help. 

My lack of sleep is probably my worst problem, as I have to go to work every day, and by the time lunch comes around, I am so tired that I can hardly keep my eyes open. I have also taken to sleeping on the couch most of the time, because I keep my husband awake.

The rest of the story is good news and it all because I accidentally found out about Ancient Minerals.

I attended a networking meeting through my company a couple of weeks ago, and was lucky enough to get to know the lady beside me. I shared with her the fact that I had RLS, and she told me about using Ancient Minerals for her fibromyalgia. She suggested that I try it, and that it might just help.

Well, I purchased the small size and used it a couple of days. The first day I noticed that I was actually able to sleep for a straight four hours (that’s alot for me!). That was amazing in itself, but it just kept getting better.

To make a long story short, I am now sleeping 7-8 hours a night, in the same bed with my husband and the six year problem seems to be a thing of the past.

Just wanted to thank you for an excellent product, and I hope that the RLS community finds out about it sooner than I did.”

M. Ludwig, Warrenton, VA: I stopped the cramps with the magnesium spray last night, spraying and spraying away on my tummy! I slept like a baby!

“Well, I have to tell you the magnesium spray really saved me last night and this morning. The [smoking cessation aid] or something has thrown me into bad cramps, and I stopped the cramps with the magnesium spray last night, spraying and spraying away on my tummy! I slept like a baby!

Then this morning I woke with bad cramps, the kind that put me into seizure mode, and again the spray held everything at bay. So I’m going to up my magnesium spraying quite a bit! I knew the [medications] drained it from my body.

I’ve been doing a lot of oral magnesium, but the spray gets there so much better!”

Jayne Peralta-Forbes, Seattle, WA: With severe eczema.

“Hi, this is Jayne Peralta-Forbes calling from the Seattle area. I am calling to thank the Magnetic Clay Company for their amazing Ancient Minerals bath — the magnesium [chloride] flakes.

My daughter has really suffered from the eczema — some really pretty severe eczema the last three years. I have not been able to using anything in her baths for this period of time. She always comes out the bath with a red activation of her eczema.

So, when I learned about this Ancient Minerals bath, I was very intrigued and hopeful that this would be a great solution for my daughter’s eczema. I’m very pleased to say that the very first time I put her into one of these baths and had her soak for 20 minutes; she had absolutely no reaction to the bath at all in terms of activation of her eczema. Her skin was not red when she came out.

For the first time in three years my daughter wasn’t crying saying, ‘Mommy, my skin hurts!’
This was a huge win for our family. I can’t thank Magnetic Clay enough for the results that we’ve been able to achieve since that first bath. Her eczema is significantly reduced, almost completely gone. And it’s been about two weeks of these baths.

So, I want to thank Magnetic Clay again for the difference that they have made in my daughter Sophia’s life and deeply appreciate the healing process that they have helped to kick-start. Thanks again, Magnetic Clay.”

Patricia: 74 years old, eczema on my lower legs.

“Hi, my name is Patricia, and I’m 74 years old. I’ve had eczema on my lower legs, especially on the right, very bad now for about 10 years, and have spent a lot of money on creams, and potions, and steroids, and so forth. I just can’t tell you how much money I have spent — and all it would do was calm it down, and slow it down for a little while. I’d have a little bit of relief, but not complete, because the itch was unbelievable.

It would just drive you crazy. You just feel like you’re going crazy if it doesn’t stop itching! And the itch of course causes very large lesions, and infection, and all kinds of things. And I have varicose veins really bad in that leg, in the right leg especially.

So, I would get swelling, and redness, and rashing, and I didn’t even know what I had until I went to the dermatologist. They did take a biopsy of some lesions that I had. And he said, ‘It’s just eczema, and you have to live with it.’

But, you know how you do: you just hope and pray that you can get rid of it. And then I had a friend at my Bible study that gave me a spray called Ancient Minerals Ultra Pure Magnesium Oil. I was so desperate I sprayed it on right then and there at the meeting!

And I thought my legs were on fire! It burned so bad, but I knew it was because I had scratched and scratched, and had it red, and inflamed, and swelled. And so I knew it was doing its job. In about half an hour it calmed down.

I told my friend, I said, ‘Oh, my gosh, just to have the relief of not itching is wonderful.’
So, he encouraged me to use it that night before I went to bed and in the morning. So I did that, and I did that for two weeks. And let me tell you: it burned that first five or six days terrible, and then it began to get less and less.

I used it every single day for at least two weeks. And I began to see: the swelling went down! The redness went down.

And I hadn’t had any itch since I used it the very first time. It stopped itching, which was such a blessing! Oh, my gosh, such a relief. And now that’s been, oh, my goodness, maybe a couple of months now at least.

And I am so proud of my legs!

Even the varicose veins are not as puffy and poochy as they were before. I still have a lot of discoloration on my skin due to the years of treating it with steroids and other things, but the rash is gone. My skin is smooth. There’s no pain, no swelling.

I’m wearing capri’s again to show off my great legs and my great ankles! They’re not swollen up anymore.

So, I just love this stuff, and I’m never going to stop using it. It has been such a miracle for my skin.

And I have used it on my face! I feel so confident at night, before I go to bed after I wash my face I just spray some in my hands, rub my hands together and then just put it all over my face and avoid my eyes and my lips. (If I do get it on my lips, it’s okay, but it tastes terrible!)
I find that it heals any little blemish I might have. It makes my skin look smoother.

And like I said, I’m 74 years old. I’m not anything special other than a healthy old lady that enjoys feeling good and looking her best!

So, I really recommend anyone that has any problems with their skin — I don’t care what it is, if it’s your hands or arms. (And I understand after reading the material that you can even put it in your hair and in your scalp if you have that kind of problem.)

It’s just so good for your exterior — the largest organ of your body — your skin. Anywhere you have problems.

Just don’t even think about using anything other than that! Why spend so much money on expensive creams, and lotions, and potions, and who knows what all and not get the results that you do with this?

You’re going to see a difference, if you just stick with it. I know it may burn or feel — it’ll feel like it’s irritating you. It’s not, it’s not: It’s healing. That’s the healing. It’s like when you have a cast on, and you’re feeling the itch!”

Natalie Reed, Arroyo Grande, CA: Recently in a car accident where I was rear-ended in a vehicle.

“Hello, my name is Natalie Reed. I’m from Arroyo Grande, California, and I was recently in a car accident where I was rear-ended in a vehicle. I have not been able to get into a doctor — a primary care giver. I’ve had three insurances, and I was turned down by all three with the state of our economy.

I had gone to my girlfriend’s house, and she had the magnesium oil. And she said, ‘Let me try it. I’m going to put it on your neck and your back. I’ll be liberal about it, but I’ll be careful because you are hurt.’ So, she rubbed it in, and I was there for maybe an hour or so.

I got up to leave, and I was very relaxed. I had no pain at all.

I went to drive home, and I I felt like I had been in a spa for about an hour. I had to be careful driving home because I was so relaxed!

Then I got home, and I had gotten a sample from her, and used it on my husband who was in the same accident with me. …Didn’t even tell him what it was, and I asked him how he was doing.

He said, ‘Well, I don’t have any pain right now.’

I said, ‘You have no pain at all?’

‘No,’ he says. ‘I’m kind of relaxed. It worked better than icing it or any other thing that I’ve tried.’

So, we’re pretty set on this and I’m going to pass the word along because it’s been so horrible for me to go through everything. I just keep using the sample, and I’m going to get some. But everybody else should too!

I’m going to be introducing it to a whole line of people who can use it to help other people because it really does work going in through the skin.

And I’m just excited about it! I just cannot tell you how elated I am with the relief that I’ve had and the possibility of what this could do for me and other health issues. Thank you!”

Amy Perry: My daughter has autism, and she is now 12 years old.

“My daughter has autism, and she is now 12 years old. We recently tried the Ancient Minerals Magnesium Bath Flakes. We used it when we were out of town for a family wedding, hoping it would keep her calm and able to handle all of the new people, places etc…

I have never seen her behave so well as she did at that wedding.

A child who usually shies away from crowds was actually dancing in a room full of people! For me the night was flooded with compliments on how fantastic she looked. (Normal even!)

But I know I must give the credit for that day to the magnesium bath we gave her the night before – she has never been so calm and relaxed! Thank you for making such a special day for our family enjoyable to everyone!”

Mary Ludwig: Great for kids with autism and heavy metals poisoning.

“Hi, this is Mary Ludwig, mother to Alex Ludwig. I just wanted to say some things about how well the Ancient Minerals baths work.

They work wonderfully for calming our son down, and he actually reaches for them. He wants more and more!

He loves his magnesium baths so much!

And the other thing that I wanted to mention is how it has helped our Magnetic Clay routine. We use a somewhat innovative, I think, push-pull technique where we give him the Ancient Minerals baths. And it kind of fills him up with minerals and gets him really pumped up, and then the next night we’ll give him a Magnetic Clay bath. And, I guess because there’s so many good minerals in him, he can let more metals go.

Since we’ve started doing that we’re getting more and more release. So, you know, with push the minerals in, we pull the metals out with the clay baths, we push the minerals in, and calm him down even more with the magnesium baths.

So, I just want to say: It is a wonderful product by itself, and it is a wonderful product as an adjunct. Everyone in the family enjoys the magnesium baths. So, thank you again, for coming out with something else that’s really great for kids with autism and heavy metals poisoning.”

But alas, the ‘Miracle of Magnesium’ is real… I did not need to take any pain killers as there was NO PAIN whatsoever, a mild twinge at best… So I simply applied some magnesium chloride oil to the abdomen and it vanished in minutes. And this is after only two weeks!

From time to time I also experienced the odd migraine… Once again laid up… So surreal and intense that I often felt I was leaving the body, and had to get my husband to simply hold me to keep me grounded.

But here’s the good news: I have not had to even a minor headache since taking magnesium!

All my migraine suffering friends will attest to the same positive results!”

Mona Lieberman: Swishing magnesium oil for periodontal disease.

“I was diagnosed seven years ago with periodontal disease. Every night I would wake up with blood on my pillow. My gums were bleeding profusely. No matter how many products I took, I never could remedy this situation.

Well, after taking the magnesium oil, putting it in my mouth, and swishing it around, after about five days there is absolutely no bleeding anymore, and my gums feel entirely new.

This is a great product. It did worlds of good for me, and I would recommend it to anyone that has this problem. Thank you.”

L. Morton, Albuquerque, NM: Magnesium oil for severe muscle spasms.

“I have been on a medication… for severe muscle spasms. This medication is primarily used for spinal issues. I have also been prescribed… a medication used for neurological disorders. I am driving my doctors nuts, so you might say that I am crazy! Just ask my wife!

The doctors are puzzled with what is going on with me. The spinal docs and the brain docs are trying to determine if these cluster seizures are spinal or neurological. These spasms are most frequently small in number throughout the day, yet very discomforting. On bad days I can get up to 200 a day in clusters of ten to fifteen — leaving me at times unable to move.

Stress and fatigue seem to accentuate the amount of them and the intensity of each. These spasms are so difficult that it takes all my wits to lull them in to a controllable state.

I thought it would never be possible to overcome this state of being. I was succumbing to the fact that pharmaceuticals would be my last and final resort. I have tried numerous naturopathic protocols, none of which seemed to solve the discomfort, while the spasms continued to worsen in both intensity and occurrence. One of our decisions for a detox protocol was to acquire some of your fantastic clay baths we had been hearing about. With our shipment came a sample of the Ancient Minerals liquid magnesium oil in a spray bottle for topical use, and a book by Dr. Mark Sircus on transdermal magnesium therapy.

I have tried magnesium in capsule form with calcium as suggested by one of my doctors — it gave some relief, until the spasms intensified. At this point destined toward heavy medications, I thought: what do I have to lose?

Within two days of the first application of spraying my entire body with magnesium both days, the spasms subsided!

It is still very early to say ‘This is it’, but in life’s little synchronicities through a series of unknown events myself and your liquid magnesium have come together to enrich my life.
I can’t even begin to tell you what this simple mineral has done for me.

Within a short period of a couple of weeks I am a different person. No longer am I chasing an elusive creature taking over my life and leaving me in shambles. I am calm and at peace.
No longer am I preoccupied with just trying to be me. There is just simply, not enough I can say about the Ancient Minerals magnesium chloride oil with the exception of thank you! Thank you very much!”

Magnesium Oil has many benefits! It can help to counteract stress and help you to sleep better.
