healthy is Magnesium Chloride?
as well as chloride have some important functions in keeping the body in
shape; young and healthy. Chloride is required for production of gastric
acid each day and is also needed to stimulate starch-digesting enzymes.
Magnesium rejuvenates and prevents the calcification of our organs and
tissues that is characteristic of the old-age related degeneration of our
Using other magnesium salts is less advantageous because
these have to be converted into chlorides in the body anyway. We may use
magnesium as oxide or carbonate but then we need to produce additional
hydrochloric acid to absorb them. Many aging individuals, especially with
chronic diseases who desperately need more magnesium cannot produce
sufficient hydrochloric acid and then cannot absorb the oxide or carbonate.
Table salt is sodium chloride, Epsom salt is magnesium sulphate - it is
soluble but not well absorbed and acts mainly as a laxative. Chelated
magnesium is well absorbed but much more expensive and lacks the beneficial
contribution of the chloride ions. Chelated magnesium seem to lack the
infection-fighting potential of the magnesium chloride ... as W. Last wrote
in his excellent article.

general rule, magnesium is extremely safe and useful. In fact it is so
safe and useful that we have to wonder why it has been ignored and
underused by allopathic medicine. One good explanation put out many years
ago was that official medicine saw in Magnesium Chloride Therapy a threat
to its new and growing business: vaccinations. It is little known, for
instance, that magnesium increases the efficiency of white blood cells.
What we have on our hands is a vastly underestimated medicine to employ in
the treatment of a range of diseases. “Think what it could mean if we
could induce the white cells in our blood to double their protective
activity without any increase in numbers.
It would reduce sharply the possibility that invaders of the bloodstream
could get by these defenders and do consequent damage to our systems. It
would mean that the need for drugs to fight bacterial invasions would be
just about eliminated. It would mean bringing the protective ability of
everybody's blood up to the level that is now possessed by the superbly

This is not a fantasy
but the celebrated work of Dr. Pierre Delbet, called Politique Préventif
du Cancer. Dr Raul Vergini, in Italy says that epidemiological
studies confirmed Delbet´s views and demonstrated that the regions with
soil more rich in magnesium had less cancer incidence, and vice versa and
says that in experimental studies the Magnesium Chloride solution was able
to slow down the course of cancer in laboratory animals. Dr. Delbet
demonstrated many years ago that Magnesium Chloride solution was a very
good therapy for many diseases because it had an effect on the whole
organism. He obtained very good results in: colitis, angiocholitis and
cholecystitis in the digestive apparatus; Parkinson´s Disease, senile
tremors and muscular cramps in the nervous system; acne, eczema,
psoriasis, warts, itch of various origins and chilblains in the skin.
There was a strengthening of hair and nails, a good effect on diseases
typical of the aged (impotency, prostatic hypertrophy, cerebral and
circulatory troubles) and on diseases of allergic origin (hay-fever,
asthma, urticaria and anaphylactic reactions).
"The clinical facts have, for the most part, been observed by
chance. My followers take much magnesium chloride. They are
enthusiasts propagandizing for it. Others adopt it, partly,
perhaps, because it often produces systemic excitation. Among those
who take it for its tonic action, several are afflicted with various
ailments which disappear, and they report from time to time
successes I did not expect."
one should be astounded and stand in awe when studying nature and a basic
medicine like magnesium. Hippocrates said food is our medicine and when we
look at magnesium we can see that this is no joke and that nutritionists can
often equal or outdistance doctors in the practice of medicine. What we will
read about magnesium is almost too good to be true for magnesium basically
is good for anything that ails us. This is not a ridiculous statement when
we look at how many crucial biological functions in which it participates
in, the hundreds of enzyme reactions for which it is needed. The newspapers
sing the praises of the wonder drugs that have devastating side effects but
the action of this miracle mineral is swept neatly under the rug by the
medical establishment that clearly favors pharmaceutically- formulated drugs
from which fortunes can be made.
problem is that very probably their physicians and pediatricians don't know
anything about this magnesium therapy, so how can they give good advice?

Dr. Raul Vergini
In 1943 Dr. A.
Neveu used the magnesium chloride solution in a case of diphtheria to reduce
the risks of anaphylactic reaction due to the anti-diphtheria serum that he
was ready to administer. To his great surprise, when the next day the
laboratory results confirmed the diagnosis of diphtheria, the little girl
was completely cured before he could use the serum. Now what would be safer
to administer to a child, a vaccine for diphtheria or a form of magnesium
that comes from the sea. According to Dr. Delbet:
chloride has a cytophilactic"
activity that no other magnesium salt has.
It is not surprising that books have been written about magnesium and that
in serious situations like autism, where the brain is flooded with mercury,
that magnesium is effective in treatment, as Dr. Rimland has clearly
indicated. Magnesium has even been seen to attenuate increased
blood-brain barrier permeability during insulin-induced hypoglycemia in
which might explain yet one more reason why magnesium is essential in
chelation and detoxification. If it can increase blood-brain barrier
permeability during insulin-induced hypoglycemia it could possibly be a key
to opening the gates for mercury to flow out of the cells. Magnesium
protects brain tissue against the effects of cerebral ischemia, brain injury
and stroke through its actions as a calcium antagonist and inhibitor of
excitatory amino acids. This particular action might also explain why

studies to protect patients from strokes.

We all should be using the simplest, safest way of getting

Dr. Norman Shealy
Dr. Shealy is referring
here to transdermal application. In this chapter we are going to discover
that magnesium, when used correctly, is the best weapon we have to defend
the body, not only from infectious diseases of both viral and bacterial
origin, but also from the chemical deluge of toxic chemicals that are
invading our bodies everyday. Between its power to stimulate white blood
cells and glutathione we have a heavy weight non toxic medicine we can use
without a prescription. So basic and important is magnesium that we need to
put it up on the same alter as Vitamin C though there are medical and
pharmaceutical terrorists (CODEX) who would limit the amounts and dosages of
crucial supplements even as our need for them goes dramatically up. Probably
there has never been a greater form of terrorism conceived than that of
deliberately denying the human race of the nutrition they need for health.
the most widely deficient essential nutrient,,

associated with virtually every known disease: heart attacks,
diabetes, depression, cancer, etc. Oral magnesium supplements are
not easy to assimilate and many take five years or longer to give
Dr. Norman Shealy
It is estimated that 80%
of the people in the world today are deficient in magnesium. The time scale of
mineral uptake and loss is long, it can be many months or even years before
exposure or lack of exposure to certain elements is noted with respect to a
person’s state of health. Improving your mineral status by eating a whole
food diet used to ensure that you get the right minerals in the correct,
purpose-built proportions. But today supplementing is necessary
because of increased chemical body burdens and the decreased mineral food
values. Re-mineralization can improve the levels of long-term imbalances
with truly life-changing results, and very quickly if administered in highly
mineral levels can cause, or at least, increase seizures. Mineral
levels had a huge impact on the frequency of my son's seizures. His
seemed most related to low magnesium levels, but others could also
contribute. We found that we had to be very careful to re-mineralize
after each round of chelation and he also benefited from longer breaks in
between rounds. While he did have a few flare-ups of seizures during
chelation, it actually helped reduce them greatly and now it is extremely
rare for him to have a seizure.
rapidly distributes throughout the body following absorption.
Normal plasma levels of magnesium range from about 1.6 to 2.1 nM.
Magnesium supplementation is actually crucial for everyone today but we have
to pay especial attention to the method of supplementation because this is
critical in terms of effective body utilization. There are several foods
that are very high in magnesium and adults can pick and choose foods to
maximize magnesium consumption. But when treating children this is not
always possible and often people resist dramatic dietary changes. Eating a
wide variety of legumes, nuts, whole grains, and vegetables will help you
meet your daily dietary need for magnesium. Selected food sources of
magnesium are listed in the reference note section. [viii] Magnesium
is absorbed primarily in the distal small intestines or colon. Active uptake
is required involving various transport systems such as the vitamin
D-sensitive transport system. Since magnesium is not passively absorbed it
demonstrates saturable absorption resulting in variable bioavailability
averaging 35-40% of administered dose even under the best conditions of
intestinal health. These and other conditions make oral magnesium
supplements intake chancy and inefficient compared to transdermal intake.
Transdermal application of magnesium is far superior to oral supplements and
is in reality the only practical way magnesium can be used as a medicine
besides by direct injection. Though nothing can substitute for magnesium
absorbed through foods high in magnesium medically speaking it avails us to
status of the digestive system and the kidneys significantly influence
Magnesium is absorbed in the intestines and then transported through the
blood to cells and tissues. Approximately one-third to one-half of dietary
magnesium is absorbed into the body.
Gastrointestinal disorders that impair absorption such as Crohn's
disease can limit the body's ability to absorb magnesium. We cannot benefit
from minerals unless we can absorb them. The absorption of minerals
primarily takes place within the small intestines. As food matter passes
through the intestines, minerals transfer into the blood stream through the
walls of the intestines. This can only happen if the minerals are ionically
100 patients suffering from coronary heart disease were treated

The British Medical Journal
In no illness is DHEA/magnesium deficiency more prevalent than myocardial
infarction (acute heart attack). On average, heart attack patients
immediately given magnesium intravenously have a 50% greater survival rate.
For conditions such as acute heart attacks,
magnesium given by either an intramuscular
injection or as an intravenous drip, is the preferred method of treatment.
In spite of its low cost or perhaps as a result of its low cost, it is not
given routinely to heart attack victims and this is sad.
The Myers' cocktail, which was used effectively for acute
asthma attacks, migraines, fatigue (including chronic fatigue syndrome),
fibromyalgia, acute muscle spasm, upper respiratory tract infections,

Epson Salt baths have been famous for many years and they impart magnesium
transdermally in the form of magnesium sulfate. The
"recipe" traditionally consists of one cup of Epson salts in a tub
of warm water, soaking for approximately 30 minutes per day. There are two
possible explanations for the success of this particular treatment: 1. Heat
and/or relaxation therapy. 2. Transdermal (through the skin) absorption of
magnesium. The Epsom salts some people take as a magnesium supplement
contains magnesium sulfate, which is rapidly excreted through the kidneys
and therefore difficult to assimilate. Whole sea salt contains magnesium
chloride and magnesium bromide, which are easily assimilated and metabolized
in the human body.
Magnesium chloride, which
is the prevalent form of magnesium obtained from sea water, is a very unique
and powerful form of magnesium that is almost immediately assimilated by the
body, through the skin, directly to the cellular level. By using what is
called Magnesium Oil, either topically or in a soak, massive amounts of
magnesium can be absorbed by our bodies. Body pains can be eliminated
quickly in a strong soak. Magnesium Oil is made up of 35% magnesium
chloride. Even though magnesium chloride is the most efficacious form
of magnesium, when delivered orally it is minimally effective in delivering
the magnesium to the cellular level where it can be used by the body to
address the many areas of magnesium deficiency.
I think it is
very hard to mineralize our kids because of their leaky
guts. After treating my son with clay he does not have a leaky gut
but still I can not mineralize him the way he should be, because
supplements are not in the right form in order to be absorbed by the
Magnesium Oil delivers high levels of magnesium directly through the skin to
the cellular level, bypassing common intestinal and kidney symptoms
associated with oral use. Magnesium chloride has a major advantage over
magnesium sulfate because it is hygroscopic and will attract water to it,
thus keeping it wet on the skin and vastly more likely to be absorbed, while
magnesium sulfate simply dries and becomes powdery. Magnesium Oil feels oily
on the skin. The biggest benefit of topical magnesium chloride
administration is that the intestines are not adversely impacted by large
doses of oral magnesium.
magnesium chloride works fast to stop asthma attacks.
The only contraindication to Magnesium Chloride
Therapy is a severe renal insufficiency.
Fick’s Law of
Membrane Permeability says that the amount of any solute (magnesium) that
will be absorbed is directly dependent upon the area of contact, the
concentration of the solution and the time that the solute is in contact
with the membrane Daniel Reid obviously realizes this basic principle and
indicates that, “Using Magnesium Oil is the quickest and most convenient
way to transmit magnesium chloride into the cells and tissues through the
skin. 2-3 sprays under each armpit function as a highly effective deodorant,
while at the same time transporting magnesium swiftly through the thin skin
into the glands, lymph channels, and bloodstream, for distribution
throughout the body. Spray it onto the back of the hand or the top of the
feet any time of day or night for continuous magnesium absorption.
Daniel Reid continues saying, “For purposes of cellular detoxification and
tissue purification, the most effective form of magnesium is magnesium
chloride, which has a strong excretory effect on toxins and stagnant
energies stuck in the tissues of the body, drawing them out through the
pores of the skin. This is a powerful hydrotherapy that draws toxins from
the tissues, replenishes the vital fluid of the cells with energized
microwater, and restores cellular magnesium to optimum levels. It may be
applied as a full-body immersion bath or as a simple footbath, with equally
the whole body or just the feet in this bath water for 20-30 minutes, at a
temperature of about 108 degrees The most effective protocol for this
therapy is to begin with a daily body or foot bath every day for the first 7
days, then continue with a maintenance program of 2-3 times a week for 6-8
weeks or longer. To the bath water one can add 1/4 cup of Bath Salts, 1
tablespoon or more of Magnesium Oil and even Magnesium Bath Flakes, which
are also sold. As with any healing process sensitive care must be taken
especially with children as to dose levels, water temperature and magnesium
concentrations. Reactions are rare but overdoing it is not a good idea.
In his book "Holy Water, Sacred Oil", Dr. C. Norman Shealy has
documented almost ninety health issues that are directly related to
magnesium deficiency. Additionally, Dr. Shealy draws a strong correlation
between magnesium levels and DHEA levels. He has also determined that when
the body is presented with adequate levels of magnesium at the cellular
level, the body will begin to naturally produce DHEA and also DHEA-S. The
role of magnesium plays in the transmission of hormones (such as insulin,
thyroid, estrogen, testosterone, DHEA, etc.), neurotransmitters (such as
dopamine, catecholamines, serotonin, GABA, etc.), and minerals and mineral
electrolytes is a strong one. This research concludes that it is magnesium
status that controls cell membrane potential and through this means controls
uptake and release of many hormones, nutrients and neurotransmitters.
Since DHEA is one of the primary bio-markers for aging, the long range
effect of large doses of magnesium in a usable form is to significantly
raise DHEA levels and thus produce true Age Reversal results. Dr.
Shealy refers to DHEA as the Master Hormone and when produced at sufficient
levels, will induce the production of all of the other hormones whose
depletion can be associated with many symptoms of aging. Indeed, through the
use of Magnesium Oil, women have reported complete abatement of menopausal
symptoms and some have even returned to their menstrual cycle.
