Re: Harry - magnesium absorption rates?
T--- That's good to have a Doctor that is open minded enough to accept that regular medicine is not the only way to treat problems!!!
One Doctor that I have read his books and articles is Dr Linus Pauling--- winner of 2 Nobel prizes. He said "You can trace every sickness, every disease and every ailment to a mineral deficiency"
He out lived all of his critics about the use of Vitamin C and the Common Cold. He was very active even in his 90'ties.
If his statement is true then we should all learn more and practice the principles of absorbing more minerals.
In out society today we suffer from problems that were just minor just 50 years ago. Fruits and veggies that supplied our minerals as well as vitamins are now grown in areas that the nutrients are depleted.
Signs of magnesium deficiency is: Muscle aches, pains, cramps, spasms, low bone density and early onset of cateracts.Confusion, sleep problems, seizures, IBS, diabetes, cardiovascular problems, heart arrhythmia, high BP, birth defects, osteoporsis, certain forms of cancer, depession, chronic fatigue, kidney stones--- and on --- and on!!!
This is just one mineral-- What about all the others your body needs for optimum health? Are you on the Right tract?? YOU BET !!
I write with some experience because I am living it --- in just 8 days~~~~ I will be 71 yo.
