Modern Magnesium Treatments

Published on October 3, 2013

Transdermal Magnesium Therapy E-Book

For years I have been writing and publishing about magnesium. I have no doubt that I am happy, healthy and feeling like I am 45 when I am 61 because of the incredible amount of transdermal magnesium massages I have had through the years. Lately I have begun to take a new form of magnesium orally and I tell you it works as advertised.

When I speak face to face with people, I often use the analogy of magnesium being much like oil – as in the oil you put into a car. I tell people, “Try running your car up a mountain when the oil is very low and that is in fact what we do with our bodies when our cellular and blood serum levels of magnesium drop too low.”

We should not be surprised then to read that “magnesium plays an essential role in the synthesis and metabolism of vitamin D, and magnesium supplementation substantially reversed the resistance to vitamin D treatment in patients with magnesium-dependent vitamin-D-resistant rickets.[1] We hypothesized that dietary magnesium alone, particularly its interaction with vitamin D intake, contributes to serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) levels, and the associations between serum 25(OH)D and risk of mortality may be modified by magnesium intake level.”

This conclusion is based on clinical research and the results from US National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) between 2001 to 2006. Scientists found that, “High intake of total, dietary or supplemental magnesium was associated with significantly reduced risks of vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency respectively. Intake of magnesium significantly interacted with intake of vitamin D in relation to risk of both vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency. Additionally, the inverse association between total magnesium intake and vitamin D insufficiency primarily appeared among populations at high risk of vitamin insufficiency. Furthermore, the associations of serum 25(OH)D with mortality, particularly due to cardiovascular disease (CVD) and colorectal cancer, were modified by magnesium intake, and the inverse associations were primarily present among those with magnesium intake above the median.”

These scientists concluded that “Magnesium intake alone, or its interaction with vitamin D intake, may contribute to vitamin D status. The associations between serum 25(OH)D and risk of mortality may be modified by the intake level of magnesium.”

According to the Vitamin D Council to get the most benefit from vitamin D, you must have other cofactors in your body. Vitamin D has a number of cofactors; the ones listed below are the most important.

Magnesium has been gaining a wider audience, even among doctors; though still, all those who cling to pharmaceutical paradigms of chemical terrorism would prefer to poison patients with toxic drugs than provide magnesium, which is literally the lamp of life. Any physician who ignores magnesium, ignores the best interest of their patients – meaning, they can hardly be considered doctors. Certainly they are not healers nor are they well informed about medical issues, which is exactly what the pharmaceutical paradigm is all about – deliberately created medical ignorance.
Ancient Minerals Magnesium OIl

There are two forms of magnesium that stand out from all the rest. The first, magnesium chloride (more widely known as magnesium oil amongst the health community), is perfect for transdermal, intravenous, nebulization and even oral use. One can take strong therapeutic baths with magnesium chloride (as well as magnesium sulfate, which is also commonly utilized intravenously) and you can also slather it on the skin for direct absorption.

The second, a “newer” and less well-known compound, is magnesium bicarbonate. This form is excellent for oral use by putting it in one’s water or loading up one’s juices with it. These two forms of magnesium, especially when combined, lend a power to medical treatment that has no equal.

Mainstream medicine is sadly lacking in intuition, logic and intelligence – which certainly isn’t an accident. Medical school has become a process of conditioning medical ignorance into doctors’ brains. From the outset – they seem to lose the capacity to think and see straight about medical issues.

There is no pharmaceutical replacement. for magnesium, as well as bicarbonate, iodine and selenium. In fact many, if not most, pharmaceutical drugs strip the body of these important minerals – often causing dehydration. A good example is sleeping pills, which are a horrific substitute for magnesium supplementation. when magnesium alone can often resolve sleep problems.

People who are deficient in magnesium do not sleep well for they are more restless, tense and stressed. However, doctors, as you will see in this video, say nothing about magnesium to replace sleeping pills – despite medical science admitting that sleeping pills are very dangerous.

Richard J. Roberts, Nobel Prize winner in medicine 1993, declared that the pharmaceutical industry is not interested in medicines that cure completely. They are interested in making your disease permanent, so that you become a permanent client – so that they may “treat” you indefinitely.

Magnesium, when used with other basic minerals offers real answers and real cures for many diseases and conditions – helping us with stress on emotional, mental and even spiritual levels.

.Magnesium – The Ultimate Heart Medicine E-Book

So disinterested are cardiologists in magnesium that they would rather see their patients die of cardiac arrest than open up their minds and hearts to the ultimate heart medicine. Millions of deaths could have been prevented over recent decades if magnesium were present in people’s lives – their water, supplementation, diet and routine in general.

According to Scientific American physicians for decades have grappled with ways to block further tissue damage in patients who suffer heart attacks.[2] They have tried everything from drugs to cell therapy—all with little luck. They should have tried magnesium. After all, it is an emergency room and intensive care medicine, which can save a life in a heartbeat.

Same goes for the magnesium bicarbonate concentrate. It can be had at a discount if one buys three bottles, which is enough to turn 24 gallons of your best water into a high-octane life extending natural medicine. I will soon be publishing my book Water Medicine and it tells the story of magnesium bicarbonate and why it makes such a difference in terms of lifespan and health.

    hi doc i do have question, why not make your books hard copy? thank you cv

    • Ces,

      Its very expensive to publish hard copy. However more will be coming in hardcopy….in fact the new version of the Sodium Bicarbonate book is now being edited by a NY publisher for presenting in hard copy. Hopefully within a few months this will be available.
      Transdermal Magnesium Therapy – 2nd addition, is already available in hardcopy from or from our publisher at i Universe I also have a few copies of TMT-2nd edition available.

    I use transdermal mag daily and put mag carbinate powder in my water to drink during the day. I presume it is the same as mag bi-carbonate. I certainly have no energy slumps during the day and I am in the massage business.

  • Suzanne leaders

    I saw the video about the guy in Austrailia who said the cows lived longer because of the magnesium that was in their water.
    Can I give this water to my dog also??

    • Suzanne

      Should be ok, but use it at the maintenance level dose.

      Claudia French

      • Suzanne leaders

        I ordered 3 bottles on Oct 16, 2013. How long does it take to receive it? Does it ship out right away?

        • Suzanne, There’s been a huge influx of orders since the website went up a week ago. Orders are filled by the order that they came in, so I would encourage you to be patient.

    I am thrilled! I just ordered it!

      I just received my bottles of mag Bicarb, I thrilled and ready to go!

  • Matt

    Do you have any peer checked literature confirming the transdermal application of magnesium oil that you could refer me to? Try as I might, I cannot find a single modicum of literature confirming that applying magnesium oil transdermally has any significant effect let alone even being able to be absorbed into the skin at a rate deemed to be even close to a daily requirement of magnesium.

    I’m genuinely interested to find literature that’s evidence based and peer checked to confirm whether it’s a viable source of supplementing magnesium. The same goes for sodium bicarbonate, in fact upon trying to find literature for it, I instead found literature that the man who started the baking soda craze was stripped of his medical title in Italy and subsequently convicted for wrongful death.


  • Marla

    You say distilled water, what about using ionized water with the MAGBICARB?

    • Maria,

      Distilled water is preferred. Ionized water may be ok if it has a very low calcium content. The calcium in ionized water may cause the magnesium bicarbonate to be less effective. Low calcium mountain spring water or other low calcium waters may be ok. Claudia French

    where is Dr. Mark Sircus’s office? I am in California, near Los Angeles

    • Christine, Dr.. Sircus is in Brazil and is now retired though still doing phone consultations.

  • Brian White

    I have ordered the new magbicarb. How should it be integrated into my protocol as I have been doing the sodium bicarbonate and potassium bicarbonate as previously suggested 10 days at a time keeping my ph up to 8.0 I have just completed the first round of bs and bicarb only. How should I ad in the mannesium bicarbonate? Is there a comnbiation of the 3? I am aiming at healing prostate cancer with mets. Thanks for your guidance and all I have learned from DR Sircus’ books!

    • Brian,

      According to Dr. Sircus you can use the Magbicarb as part of your regular drinking water throughout the day, drinking at least 4 glasses per day. You will have to speak directly with him about which dosage you should be on , either the therapeutic dose of 4 oz per gallon of distilled water or the lower maintenance dose. Instructions are printed on the bottle label.
      Keep checking pH and follow the instructions for taking breaks after @ 10 days at pH of 8, etc. Drinking Magbicarb water will gradually raise pH levels.
      Watch for a new essay on this topic coming out in a few days.

    Recent studies have shown very low levels of vitamin D in the population with levels under 10 ng/mL in 90% of the population group tested in Manchester UK. Exposure to sunlight did not improve the levels very much with levels not going above 20 when research recommends levels of 60-70ng/mL I have been using transdermal magnesium for several years now and my vitamin D level is 60 ng/mL, So it would seem that Magnesium combined with vitamin A which I also take has a very positive effect and negates the need for D3 supplements.

  • beryl

    dear Claudia I have osteoporosis 4 fractures in my spine, I am on butrans 5mcg morfhine patch good for pain but don’t like side effects any info for altenative natural pain relief would be great.thanks .

    • Hi Beryl,

      You can try CBD products from Dixie Botanicals or gum from CanChew. This has helped me with similar back pain. Dr. Sircus has also recommended various PEMF devices, the BioMat, and of course Magnesiium Oil in massages, baths and topical applications. The Magnesium Bicarbonate water to drink daily may also help with your pain as it will reduce any calcifications that have occurred due to the fractures and osteoporosis.
      I empathize with your problem Beryl. Hope some of this helps you.

    A close friend in Denmark has been egging me to have Magnesium, and I’d love to – but I live in Nepal where awakening to the needs of minerals is minimal. Can I have Milk of Magnesia once in a while? Thanks.

    • Milk of Magnesia will do little to increase your magnesium levels. But there is a recipe online for making magnesium bicarbonate that uses MOM and sparkling water (seltzer water) which is very beneficial when used as a regular drinking water.
      Do a search for home-made magnesium bicarbonate on the Internet for these instructions.
