Magnesium is a mineral required to keep your bones, muscles, heart, and pretty much everything else healthy. It’s the fourth most abundant mineral in the body, required for the activity of over 300 chemical reactions. That means if you’re low in this mineral, your body can't operate at tip top shape. Studies have found, however, that nearly 70% of us don’t get enough of it! Don’t wait for symptoms of deficiency (tremors, cramps in your hands and feet, anxiety, etc.) to reveal themselves. If you consume a lot of processed foods or too much booze, or take certain medications, you might be running low. If so, an integrative nutritionist can determine your levels, guide you to more mag-rich foods, find the right supplement, and help you kick your chips-and-G&T habit!

Having a hard time calming down after I found a tick crawling on my arm tonight. I’ve had Lyme for 32 years...and this is the first tick I’ve ever seen up close in person. I was on the couch soaking my feet in magnesium and felt a tickle on my arm — looked and lost my breath & started shaking/crying. I took my dog for a walk earlier - stayed on sidewalks in town but she did sniff some leaf piles a few times. I bet one rode in on her. Insane & scary and I have no idea how I’m going to sleep tn.
anyone have any sleep remedies when all else has failed? i’ve had insomnia (trouble staying asleep) since i got sick. tried melatonin, OTC sleep aids, lots of pills (even ambien) and nothing’s worked. think it’s linked to inflammation in my body due to lyme and that’s why my body is so resistant. anyone have any natural remedies? my sleep hygiene is good and i take magnesium glycinate at night but still waking up so many times.
so personally for me, miralax does absolutely nothing. ill be 3 days and four to five doses in and nothing. Magnesium citrate is the only thing that works for me, that and glyercin suppositories. i only drink miralax if Im eextremely plugged up and need to be on laxatives for multiple days, because then I use it when I give my stomach a break but still needs to keep moving. (i dont mean minor constipation I mean lands me in the er bc my guts wont move ANYTHING constipation).
Had magnesium citrate and suppository clean out last Monday to Wednesday and haven’t gone since Wednesday. Ideas because I’m out
i don't need a colonoscopy but i do have chronic constipation and have tried two different methods of "clearing" my colon, neither of which have worked for me. i haven't been back to the doctor since the third attempt (i tried the second method twice) failed, but i wanted to know if anyone had any advice or solutions to finally getting everything "clear" or if anyone could tell me why it didn't work. i tried both magnesium citrate and miralax cleanouts.

Magnesium deficiency is running rampant. Many experts estimate that 80% of Americans are magnesium deficient. And, a major contributing factor is the presence of excess calcium in the body mainly coming from the extreme ratio difference in common foods such as: fortified orange juice (27:1), cheese (26:1), yogurt (11:1), dairy (7:1) and the very commonly used antacids (300:1). Other common contributing factors include: -Fluoride -Processed foods -Alcohol -Coffee -Sugar -Stress -Medications When should you take magnesium? How do you test your magnesium levels or know if you have a deficiency? It’s critical to get high enough doses of magnesium to compensate for the fact that our typical diet runs low on this vital mineral.
