A lot has been said about taking Calcium in our diet, to promote healthy bones and to prevent Osteoporosis and many more symptoms.

In my book: “Victory over dis…eases”, I have written about calcium already and also told the readers about the drinking of available milk these days, which has been pasteurised and homogenised.

This milk does not provide us with calcium for two reasons

      1. As mammals, we do not digest milk (mother’s milk) after the age of two years, so drinking milk is a waste of time as a food source.
      2. The processing of cow’s milk, a milk meant to feed calves only, locks up the calcium and therefor we cannot access it in our digestion.

        If however we could have access to RAW milk and ferment it and produce products such as yoghurt, kefir, brie and camembert cheeses, we will get some calcium benefit.

        Raw goats milk or even sheep milk are even better as the fat globules are smaller, similar to human milk and the human digestion can handle these products better.

        Still the question remains, that the digestive system of a mammal, does not digest milk very well after the age of two years.

Now there is another thing to be considered. Eating or drinking foods of one source only, is usually throwing our vitamin and mineral balances out. It is always wrong to take one vitamin or one mineral on their own, rather than taking a well combined multi vitamin and mineral supplement, if we need a boost.

Of course eating a well balanced diet is the real way, to be and keep well, without supplements, especially if the foods are bio-dynamically grown, in soils that have all the necessary minerals in them. So many foods are grown on soils, that are in themselves depleted from all minerals and vitamins, so artificial fertilisers are used, to boost these missing elements. However, these artificial fertilisers are of an in-organic nature and are not the same as the natural, organic types, created by organisms in the soil. This matter can be discussed at another forum, but I hope you see the difference and understand that we need quality food. We can expect the same problem to arise, when you put a poor quality fuel in your car’s fuel tank. This car is not going to perform at it’s best.

All this is leading me to the intake of Magnesium, a mineral most of us are short of in our diet and a very important one for a good calcium uptake. Calcium and magnesium, must be well balanced for good health and if we do not have this balance and we are short of the required amount of Magnesium, we can get quite sick and get all sorts of problems.

Magnesium (Mg) deficiency may cause:

  1. Anxiety and panic attacks, as Mg keeps the adrenal stress hormones under control.
  2. Asthma. Insufficient Mg increases both histamine production and bronchial spasms.
  3. Blood clots. Mg Works the same as Aspirin and keeps the blood thin in a natural way.
  4. Bowel disease. Deficiency slows the bowel action and causes constipation.
  5. Cystitis. Deficiency of Mg Make bladder spasms worse.
  6. Depression. Serotonin, which elevate moods, depend on Mg.
  7. Detoxification. Mg is crucial for the removal of toxins such as metals, aluminium and lead.
  8. Diabetes. Mg enhances insulin secretion, facilitating sugar metabolism.
  9. Fatigue
  10. Heart disease. Mg is used in hospitals for acute myocardial infarction and cardiac arrhythmia.
  11. Hypertension. Insufficient Mg causes blood vessel spasms, causing High BP.
  12. Hypoglycaemia. Mg keeps insulin under control.
  13. Insomnia. Sleep regulating melatonin is enhanced.
  14. Kidney disease. Mg deficiency contributes to atherosclerosis kidney failure.
  15. Migraine. The serotonin balance is Mg dependant.
  16. Musculoskeletal conditions. Fibrositis, Fibromyalgia, Muscle spasms, eye twitching.
  17. Nerve problems. Cramps in calf muscle, foot and toes. Vertigo and confusion.
  18. Obstetric and Gynaecology. Mg prevents Premenstrual syndrome and cramping pains during menses.
  19. Tooth decay. Mg deficiency causes an unhealthy balance of phosphorous and calcium in the saliva.

These and more negative symptoms may occur, during times when the Mg levels are below par. Always maintain the happy balance for good health.

The best way to get sufficient Mg in your body, if your diet is not up to scratch, is the mineral combination called. MAGNESIUM CHLORIDE.

This is available in a crystallised form and is soaked in water, to make it drinkable. Another way to take it is a liquid form, often called Magnesium oil, as it feels very oily, but is really soaked crystals in water. This form can be drunk, following the instructions or rubbed into the skin and is that way taken up into the body.


I can recommend Magnesium to most people, especially if you suffer from one or more of the above described symptoms.

Naturally, I cannot be responsible for you and I always suggest you go to a natural healer, who is conversant with the use of minerals. I have written about the treatment of people in my book and always stated, that no one is the same, even if you display the same symptoms.

The above information is derived from research material and personal experience.

Shanti with love
