SharonC! I just put the magnesium gel on my face before logging on. I needed a break because my back was hurting so bad. I think that gel has eased my back pain in less than 10 minutes! (Didn't know it would be THAT powerful!) Some of it got on my lips and it tastes like ocean and it feels like how your skin feels after swimming in the ocean too!
That's great Luckitri! Magnesium works very well as a muscle relaxer. Hope it helps you with your other issues!!

The best magnesium supplement I've found is Dr. Gillham's CALM. It's a powder that you dissolve in warm water. I add it to my smoothie every morning.

Thank you so much for mentioning Mr. Glen Parnham with International Health.
I have talked to him and ordered the products he recommends. The information I learned from him is worth the price of the products even if I never take them! But, of course, I will take them.
Luckitri, I would be interested in your comments on the products. I know you have commented on the magnesium already. You mentioned wanting to share the DVD. Glen says they will send the DVD to anyone who requests it. The phone number is 480 874 1879 and I understand it is available to anyone. There is no charge. The info he gave me this morning is from the DVD and it is wonderful info.
After watching the DVD I realized that I may truly never be well unless I start taking a probiotic of good quality. As Glen Parnham explained - if you have been ingesting animal products that have been raised on antibiotics - those antibiotics have been killing the probiotics in your intestine.
My unanswered question still is can one repopulate the intestine with good flora or as I read somewhere - will I have to permanently supplement with probiotics. The somewhere (can't remember where) said that once they are gone all you can do is supplement and that the kinds in the supplements do not acclimate themselves naturally to populate your stomach.
I am taking the progesterone cream. I will just try to avoid the doctor for now so I don't get confronted about taking the Rx. I know it works. As I stated before - I was forced to live on steroids and I did grow bone with this cream while on the steroids. I hope to grow alot more bone now that I am off them.
The magnesium bath crystals seem to be easing up my body pains and making it easier for me to move more. Glen Parnham says that if I do it everyday for two weeks my insomnia should be gone. I have to say that this has been such a problem for so many years that I am sceptical but hoping to become a believer.
I wrote above about the magnesium gel (its really liquid - barely gel) easing my back pain. Makes your skin feel good too.
I am glad you called him styersky. He has alot of energy to educate. I think that how he talks to people individually is very special and rare.
Have been doing a lot of research via internet regarding osteoporosis. I have talked with Glen Parnham at International Health also. He is enlightening to say the least.

I read that osteoporosis is not a calcium deficiency but rather a magnesium deficiency. So I decided to do my own research with magnesium to see if I could deal with the insomnia.
The first day I took 2400 mg magnesium, the second day 2400, the third day 3600 mg of magnesium and began sleeping like a baby. (If one overdoses on magnesium we will know because of loose bowel movements.) That has not happened yet so I am still at 3600 mg per day.
If I am that deficient in magnesium, it makes sense to me that is part of the osteoporosis problem and I feel better now about leaving off the Fosomax. I am also using progesterone cream at the recommendation of Glen Parnham at International Health because I believe it is all tied to hormonal balance.
I certainly feel more confident about the fosomax and osteoporosis situation now. When I have another bone density test, we will know more.
hi all.. have not been around for a while.. went travellin.
so much good new information here.!
yes, i read that magnesium also is a culprit in bone loss.
. but i also read that calcium and magnesium need to be taken as a supplement, in a specific ratio or the results desired are not accomplished.
I have not been to the International Health place to hear what is said on this subject..
I know i read the above info many many times, as i have always looked at my calcium suppements to ensure that there is a correct proportion of magnesium to the calcium.
Antibiotics taken either through foods from animals which have had them, or from even widespread use of antibiotics given by the medical community at large for everything from tooth absess to earache, indeed kill the beneficial bacteria in our digestive tracts..
I have read that the beneficial bacteria can be replaced. I am in the process of trying a good probiotic.. which is apparently one of the only ones with a guarenteed live bacterial count..( most over the counter ones have only the guarentee of so many billions of bacteria at time of manufacture)(they are soon killed by warm temperatures and bad storage conditons and most of them end up being worthless.
I have been on it about 6 months.. It seems to be slowly building up my bacterial count.
can tell by the stools.
But , this stuff is expensive and i tend to agree with EZ that our Good Creator has a way for us to cure ourselves naturally..inexpensively.. we just have to find it...
I have been experimenting with fermented veggies and have found them really good.. They also change the climate of your intestinal tract and add live bacteria..I have been making my own fermented cucumbers, and kale,
I have been enjoying them immensely.. and knowing that they are building up healthy flora.. is an added enjoyment.
There has been an interesting discussion here on RFT about an inexpensive wheat grass juicer.
Here's the link:
Thank you EZ! I totally missed that. Future plans.
