Why 80% of Us Are Magnesium-Defi cient

1% of the body's magnesium is stored in the blood. Most doctors and laboratories don't


even include magnesium status in routine blood tests. Thus, most doctors don't know when their patients are defi cient in mag- nesium, even though studies show that the majority of Americans are defi cient in magnesium. Consider Dr. Norman Shealy's state-

ments, "Every known illness is associated with a magnesium defi ciency" and that, "magnesium is the most critical mineral required for electrical stability of every cell

agnesium deficiency is often misdiagnosed because it does not show up in blood tests – only

in the body. A magnesium defi ciency may be responsible for more diseases than any other nutrient." The truth he states exposes a gapping hole in modern medicine that explains a good deal about iatrogenic death and disease. Because magnesium defi ciency is largely overlooked, millions of Americans suffer needlessly or are hav- ing their symptoms treated with expensive drugs when they could be cured with magnesium supplementation.

One has to recognize the signs of magnesium thirst or hunger on their own since allopathic medicine is lost in this regard. It is really something much more subtle then hunger or thirst but it is com- parable. In a world though where doctors

and patients alike do not even pay atten- tion to thirst and important issues of hydra- tion, it is not hopeful that we will fi nd many recognizing and paying attention to magnesium thirst and hunger, which is a dramatic way of expressing the concept of magnesium defi ciency. Few people are aware of the enormous role magnesium plays in our bodies. Mag- nesium is by far the most important min- eral in the body. After oxygen, water, and basic food, magnesium may be the most important element needed by our bodies; vitally important, yet hardly known. It is more important than calcium, potassium or sodium and regulates all three of them. Millions suffer daily from magnesium defi ciency without even knowing it. In fact, there happens to be a relation- ship between what we perceive as thirst and defi ciencies in electrolytes. I remem- ber a person asking, "Why am I dehy- drated and thirsty when I drink so much water?" Thirst can mean not only lack of water but it can also mean that one is not getting enough nutrients and electrolytes. Magnesium, Potassium, Bicarbonate, Chloride and Sodium are some principle examples and that is one of the reasons magnesium chloride is so useful. You know all those years, when doc- tors used to tell their patients 'its all in your
