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. 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.
- Vitamin K
- Vitamin A
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.
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.
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. 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.

 Promising research indicates that a biogel made from seaweed may have the healing powers after heart attack that have thus far eluded them. Some of the principle healing agents in seaweed are magnesium, iodine, and selenium. http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=can-seaweed-mend-a-broken-heart
