• Pre-menstrual fluid retention and/ breast tenderness

Possible manifestations of magnesium deficiency include:

• Low energy • Fatigue • Weakness • Confusion • Nervousness • Anxiousness • Irritability • Seizures (and tantrums) • Poor digestion • PMS and hormonal imbalances • Inability to sleep • Muscle tension, spasm and cramps • Calcification of organs • Weakening of the bones • Abnormal heart rhythm

Severe magnesium deficiency can result in low levels of calcium in the blood

(hypocalcemia). Magnesium deficiency is also associated with low levels of potas- sium in the blood (hypokalemia). Magne- sium levels drop at night, leading to poor REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep cycles and unrefreshed sleep. Headaches, blurred vision, mouth ulcers, fatigue and anxiety are also early signs of depletion. We hear all the time about how heart disease is the number one health crisis in the country, about how high blood pres- sure is the "silent killer", and about how ever increasing numbers of our citizens are having their lives and the lives of their families destroyed by diabetes, Alzheim- er's disease, and a host of other chronic diseases. Signs of severe magnesium deficiency


• Extreme thirst • Extreme hunger • Frequent urination

• Sores or bruises that heal slowly • Dry, itchy skin

• Unexplained weight loss

Neurofeedback is direct training of brain function, by which the brain learns to function more efficiently.

• Blurry vision that changes from day to day

• Unusual tiredness or drowsiness

• Tingling or numbness in the hands or feet

• Frequent or recurring skin, gum, bladder or vaginal yeast infections

But wait a minute, aren't those the same symptoms for diabetes? Many people have diabetes for about 5 years before they show strong symptoms. By that time, some people already have eye, kidney, gum or nerve damage caused by the deteriorating condition of their cells due to insulin re- sistance and magnesium deficiency. Dump some mercury and arsenic on the mixture of etiologies and pronto we have the dis- ease condition we call diabetes. Magnesium deficiency is synonymous with diabetes and is at the root of many if not all cardiovascular problems. Magnesium deficiency is a predictor of diabetes and heart disease both; diabet- ics both need more magnesium and lose more magnesium than most people. In two new studies, in both men and women, those who consumed the most magnesium in their diet were least likely to develop type 2 diabetes, according to a report in the January 2006 issue of the journal Dia- betes Care. Until now, very few large studies have directly examined the long- term effects of dietary magnesium on dia- betes. Dr. Simin Liu of the Harvard Medi- cal School and School of Public Health in Boston says, "Our studies provided some direct evidence that greater intake of di- etary magnesium may have a long-term protective effect on lowering risk," said Liu, who was involved in both studies. The thirst of diabetes is part of the

body's response to excessive urination. The excessive urination is the body's attempt to get rid of the extra glucose in the blood. This excessive urination causes the in- creased thirst. But we have to look at what is causing this level of disharmony. We have to probe deeper into layers of cause. The body needs to dump glucose because of increasing insulin resistance and that resistance is being fueled directly by mag- nesium deficiency, which makes toxic insults more damaging to the tissues at the same time.
