Magnesium chloride is the medical miracle from the sea that made me famous in the world of medicine. It is popularly known as magnesium oil (when the magnesium content of seawater is concentrated to about 35 percent in solution), which can be thus applied topically to the skin for almost instant therapeutic effect on pain, inflammation and a wide range of other physiological functions like ATP production and oxygen-carrying capacity.
My book Transdermal Magnesium Therapy put me on the medical map of the world and describes why magnesium chloride is the very best medicine in the world for a wide range of disorders including cancer. With magnesium chloride one can reduce one’s chance of getting cancer by a factor of ten. With magnesium chloride one can increase immune system strength as well as ensure that calcium does not get out of control causing all kinds of problems.
When taken orally with sodium bicarbonate and iodine we have a super threesome with which to battle infections, even the ones that are becoming resistant to antibiotics, turning themselves into super killers. In fact the very best medicine in the world is magnesium bicarbonate, which only exists in seawater, not to be had in any kind of solid form. That said, there is one exception and it is the best bottled water in the word. Hospitals should be buying this water by the tanker full because if all the water we drink is of medical quality, not only free of contaminants but also full of magnesium bicarbonate, we have the best and most basic medicine in our hands.

During these past few years that I have been building my Natural Allopathic Medicine protocol magnesium chloride has always retained the heavyweight crown for the most important medicine in the world and that is partly because it can be administered via injection (for emergency room cases), intravenously for situations in general in hospital settings, transdermally as in using magnesium oil to do magnesium massages, and in baths for powerful therapeutic effect.
Magnesium chloride can also be taken orally in liquid form mixed with juice or water and it can be taken in pill form as well. It makes for a quick medicine for constipation when used this way and is a good complement to transdermal application. It can be nebulized directly into the lungs or greatly diluted and used as an eyewash. Used full strength as a gargle, it strengthens gums and teeth. For these types of applications only the purest forms of magnesium oil should be used.
Lately, as I discover more about baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) and how it increases cell voltage, pH, oxygen levels and CO2, it has been threatening magnesium’s undisputed number-one spot because of its powerful effect on these basic physiological parameters that make our bodies tick. But no, even a super powerful emergency room medicine like sodium bicarbonate, that also saves lives in a heartbeat, remains behind magnesium chloride because there are hundreds of enzymes and biological processes that depend on optimum magnesium levels.
Alas there is a place higher and that takes us to a natural combination (found in seawater) and that is magnesium bicarbonate. I have a chapter in my Sodium Bicarbonate book entitled “The Ultimate Mitochondrial Cocktail”—this cocktail is magnesium bicarbonate. What I am going to say next is startling in its implications and that is that the very best medicine in the world would be water that is highest in both magnesium and bicarbonate in the form of magnesium bicarbonate and that would be the water of Paul Mason, bottled as Noah’s California Spring Water.
He did not like it particularly when I started calling his water a medicine but the truth is, it is! Drinking this water has to be as close as it comes to effortless natural medicine because we all have to make sure we hydrate ourselves everyday especially when trying to recover from cancer or any other disease. Seawater has been used as a medicine by European doctors for over a century. Seawater is ideal for IVs, Noah’s California Spring Water, for drinking. Hospitals at a distance can buy a tanker full and have it delivered to their door, even in New York, as the cheapest medicine in the world.
I mention this because if you live far away from California it gets expensive to ship this water to your door. I would still recommend it even then for a month or two when trying to recover from cancer. The point is you can make this water yourself if you filter your own water. Then all you need to do is add the highest quality magnesium chloride product to taste in the water and some big pinches of sodium bicarbonate. It is not quite the same but quite similar.
Driving one’s life without magnesium is like driving one’s car up a mountain road without oil—but that is exactly what most people are doing—and believe you me, they are literally losing sleep because of it. Without magnesium stress becomes much more stressful and that is why a nice hot magnesium bath is so wonderful before bed.
Research published in the American Journal of Epidemiology in 2002 shows that when the diets of 2,566 children ages 11-19 were studied, less than 14% of boys and 12% of girls had adequate intakes of magnesium.
So important is magnesium that, simply put, there would be no life on earth without it. At the heart of the chlorophyll molecule it enables plants to capture sunlight and turn it into food. Inside of us in sufficient quantity it enables us to have a wonderful life with less stress and disease.
Magnesium deficiency is carcinogenic, and in the case of solid tumors, a high level of supplemented magnesium inhibits carcinogenesis. Magnesium ions stabilize structures of proteins, nucleic acids, and cell membranes by binding to the macromolecule’s surface and promote specific structural or catalytic activities of proteins, enzymes, or ribozymes.
The most perfect medicines in the world are the ones you have to have—no matter what—to continue your life. There are certain substances, all nutritional in nature, which provide essential lifelines to happy and fully functional cells. Though contemporary medicine does not want to admit the truth and reality about diseases and their causes, it is clear that nutritional law holds the key to the resolution of disease—not pharmaceuticals that are toxic and damaging to cellular environments.
Anything that drives down magnesium levels is going to hurt us. Many pharmaceutical drugs drive magnesium levels into dangerous zones and surgery done without increasing magnesium levels is more dangerous than surgery done when magnesium is administered before, during and after surgery. Dr. Matthias Rath says, “Almost all the prescription drugs currently taken by millions of people lead to a gradual depletion of vitamins and other essential cellular nutrients in the body.”
