The community at large is only just now coming to the realization that magnesium is essential to our bodies. It helps our organs function, our muscles stay healthy, our brains focus and stay calm... it even helps us absorb water better. With the way that most of us eat these days, we just don't get enough of it, though. In fact, according to one study, published in The Journal of Nutrition, only 25% of adults in the U.S. consume the minimum recommended daily amount of magnesium.
Consuming magnesium is a good step, but our bodies can actually absorb it easily and readily transdermally--through the skin. Transdermal application gets the mineral straight to muscles and joints, where it can immediately start to bring relief. Combining transdermal magnesium application and massage therapy is a great way to provide anyone with relief from aches and pains, tension, and many other body symptoms.
We here at Body Harmony Healing aren't the only ones who have been studying all the benefits of magnesium therapy. Here's what a few others have to say about it:
"Besides inducing a relaxation effect in the body’s muscles, magnesium breaks the chemical cascade that leads to inflammation. Thus, magnesium eases tension and protects the body from a number of chronic diseases...magnesium is shown to increase oxygen to the cells, protecting us from: cancer, stroke, heart and vascular disease, Alzheimer’s..."
"Magnesium is an essential mineral used for hundreds of biochemical reactions, making it crucial for health. Massive magnesium deficiencies in the general population have led to a tidal wave of sudden coronary deaths, diabetes, strokes and cancer. Even a mild deficiency of magnesium can cause increased sensitivity to noise, nervousness, irritability, mental depression, confusion, twitching, trembling, apprehension, and insomnia.(http://drsircus.com/medicine/magnesium/)
