nelalebrije asked: I heard your podcast with Sean Croxton. I couldn't believe how important Mg was for us, and all this years w/o supplementing it. Here goes the question: I understand now that excess Ca leads to calcifications. I am 39, some years ago I was diagnosed with small testicular calcifications. Ultrasounds didn't show any sign of cancer yet but needed to be monitored. Do you think Mg can reverse this? Somewhere I read Mg oil could be applied topically in affected areas. Is it safe to do it there?
Wow! Fantastic question…
I would do a full court press. 1) I would do nightly Epsom Salt baths (1-2 Cups Epsom Salts + 1 Cup Arm & Hammer); 2) I would apply the Mg Oil, but it might sting, so be prepared. You can get MgCream which is 40% strength, and might be less irritating (bodies deficient in Mg react with sensitivity…); 3) Take a healthy dose of an oral Mg supplement (I take 1,000 mg of Jigsaw’s Mg SRT daily); 4) focus on eating Mg-rich foods (grass-fed organ meats, oysters, kelp, green, nuts [almonds, cashews, pistachio] & pumpkin seeds; and 5) dial back on your intake of Calcium & Vit-D supplements which only create challenges for increasing tissue level Mg uptake.
The other factors are the stress load that you’re carrying: level of processed foods, lack of sleep, heavy metals, environmental toxins, prescription meds, etc. to name just a few. You’ll need to deal with these, as well. Stress activates the Sympathetic Nervous System which causes a Mg loss due to the upsurge of Adrenaline, Noradrenaline and Cortisol in your system.
This is certainly worth a try. You might also get a MagRBC test (www.requestatest.com) and see where your Mg levels are. Drop me a line at Morley@MagnesiumMan.com and I’ll be happy to interpret them for you.
