There are 5 forms that you can take Magnesium: Oral, Transdermal (Topical), Nebulized and in Baths or Foot Baths, which is another form of transdermal. My favorite though is magnesium massages, which I highly recommend because it combines magnesium medicine with therapeutic touch,
Oral: magnesium chloride is well tolerated and gets absorbed quickly and is inexpensive. The problem with oral magnesium is that all magnesium compounds are potentially laxative. Magnesium chloride can also be taken 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. Only about 30% of any oral preparation of magnesium is absorbed;
Transdermally: It is one of the best ways to use the Magnesium, because it delivers medications straight to the bloodstream. There is nothing more delicious than a magnesium massage using magnesium oil or gel. The biggest benefit of topical/transdermal magnesium chloride administration is that the intestines are not adversely impacted by large doses of oral magnesium. It can be applied topically to the skin for almost instant therapeutic effect on pain, inflammation and a wide range of other physiological functions like increasing ATP production and oxygen-carrying capacity. It will help with the chelation process if you combine oral with transdermal, as you will be able to take large amounts of Magnesium, increasing your detox process, as the oral may cause nausea or diarrhea.
Nebulization: Magnesium can be nebulized directly into the lungs. Nebulization of magnesium is an alternative method of treatment for patients with pulmonary problems or infections, lung cancer or for those undergoing bronchoscopy. Magnesium nebulized directly into the lungs offers all the same positive therapeutic effects that other types of administration methods do. The lungs are like our inner skin so it is a transdermal type of treatment that concentrates the effects in the lung and bronchial tissues. Nebulizing
Bath or Foot Baths:. A most luxurious and relaxing experience. Use several cups to several pounds of magnesium bath flakes in very warm water before bedtime for ultimate relaxation, relief of aches, pains, to promote sleep, replenish magnesium levels and also detox. You will notice at the end of it the water with black small particulates, which are the toxins going out of your body.
