I love Amazing
Oils Magnesium Oil and have been using them for the past few months. I am going
to share with you why I like it so much & why you may need some in your
life. It has made such a huge difference to my health, it is clean & easy
to use, doesn’t smell and you can be sure that it is pure and free of nasties.
Are you Magnesium deficient?
A few months ago I discovered that I was Magnesium deficient
and apparently many of us are. I was aware of the fact that Magnesium is one of
the essential minerals and required by our bodies for numerous functions but I
was unaware of how easy it is to become deficient and how common it is in this
day and age.
Did you know that Magnesium deficiency can lead to a number
of these common issues?
Insomnia & Sleeplessness
Irritability & Restlessness
Anxiety, Stress or Depression
Muscle Soreness or spasms
Period Pain & PMS
Heart Palpitations or ‘flutters’
Fatigue or general tiredness
Allergies and Sensitivities
Lack of appetite
Diabetes & Insulin resistance
Irritable Bowl Syndrome and Fibromyalgia
Just to name a few! It
is important to remember that we are all individuals and there could of course
be other factors involved, or aggravating the problem. Important to check with
your health practitioner or GP if you are concerned.
How do I get Magnesium into my body?
Magnesium is responsible for over 300 enzyme reactions in
our bodies and essential to our general health. Because our soils are so
depleted these days it is harder to intake enough through even the healthiest
of foods. It is possible to take Magnesium as an oral supplement but it can be
a potential laxative and the body can struggle to absorb enough Magnesium
through the gut in the time it takes to digest – leading to a lot of potential pill
applied to the skin is safe, convenient and highly effective. It allows you to maximize
the amount you are getting daily without the worry of swallowing pills or
potentially getting an upset tummy. It can be applied directly to problem areas
and help with pain management without the wait for your digestive system. The
skin is a living, breathing organ that is most efficient for detoxification
with tremendous potential for re-mineralizing the body. Topical magnesium takes
advantage of the absorptive properties of the skin, whether it’s from a simple
spray, soak, or massage, giving you almost immediate results.
About ME & why I LOVE the Magnesium
So I suffered from a combination of things – at least 5 of
the aforementioned symptoms above- unfortunately not loss of appetite :( Some of those
symptoms I hadn’t even thought about before, just accepted as part of life and
being a woman, mum and generally busy person.
Earlier this year I had been suffering from muscle cramps in
my right leg, triggered by the also very painful Plantar Fasciitis in my foot,
a stiff knee joint and spasming calf muscle – all of which I did a combination
of stretches, exercise and visits to a chiropractor to ease and help. The pain would be worse mainly at night and
first thing in the morning. As soon as I started applying the Magnesium
roll-on before going to bed at night I immediately felt the benefits. It
does sting slightly at first, especially if you are deficient but this subsided
after a few applications. Then, about a week after daily applications, I started
my period out of the blue without having the usual lower back pain and stomach
cramps. So then I also applied it to my lower back as well and have done so
monthly ever since. I also love soaking in a hot bath with the Magnesium
Flakes which I attempt to do at least twice a week. Now, I only apply the
roll-on to my aching muscles and problem areas occasionally, depending on
exercise frequency. All my muscle aches and pains (even the Plantar Fasciitis) are SO much better. I have no muscle spasms, twitches or isolated painful areas.
And when I do cardio exercise, which is pretty infrequent, I make sure I apply
roll-on afterwards or do a Magnesium
bath soak, it really makes a difference.
I no longer suffer from period pain. I sleep better & deeper
and feel I have been less anxious and generally more relaxed. I also have more
energy and am able to concentrate more when required. This could of course be
due to other factors in my life and healthier options that I have recently incorporated
but I do feel the Magnesium is a key component and one that I will not be
stopping any time soon.
So if you think you may be magnesium deficient or you need
some pain relief for sore and aching muscles, whether it’s from illness,
exercise or something else - check out Amazing
Oils Magnesium products here at TreeHugga.
