Magnesium. There is a product called Nature Calm, which is a drinkable magensium citrate you put in water. There is another product called magnesium oil, which is magnesium chloride hexahydrate, which you spray on the skin and it soaks in. The third option is epsom salts, 1/2 c put in a warm water footbath and soak for 30 minutes, every day. of course another option is magnsium malate /pills.
If it were me I would a combination of the Nature calm and the magnesium oil, and I would use it daily. Magnesium supplementation is something that should be ongoing and not just a short term fix. It takes 4-8 months to get cellular magnesium levels where they should be with transdermal exposure and foot baths (daily). Why we are so deficient as a nation is because we consume to much soy, which blocks uptake of MANY minerals, We consume too much milk in which the high calcium content pulls magnesium out of body stores (calcium needs magnesium to assimilate it), and three, because the farmers use potassium on our crops which depletes magnesium in the soil. 80% of us are deficient and 20% consume LESS THAN HALF of the USRDA of magnesium, which is already on the lower scale to begin with. Refined foods, sodas, illness and other issues contribute.
Much of our current issues with hyperactivity, ADHD, agression and learning problems in children is due to low magnesium stores which aggitate the nervous system.
Minimize dairy products, or at least counter the high calcium with MUCH MORE magnesium.
Minimize SOY as much as possible.Dont use soy milks. Soy additives are in almost all processed foods so it will be tough. Soy casientate, soy isolate, soy protien, soy extract, any word with soy in it is the suspect. Besides depleting a large bevy of vitamins and minerals because of their phytates, they are highly estrogenic. High estrogen is proven to reduce fertility and contribute to cancer.
Mirilax works by pulling water out of other areas of the body and into the colon. This is a temporary fix. It creates bodily dehydration, and more dependency on the product as it dehydrates a person further, creating even less water available to the colon. A much better and permanent solution, besides magnesium, is to drink more water and put a PINCH OF IODINED SEA SALT in each glass. Mirilax is a poison. It is in essence anti-freeze, and I personally wouldn't use it.
