Please keep up the good reporting in WIND. It’s so good to know that not everybody in this world has gone insane…
As for the magnesium: I’ve been taking 1000mg per day since June, and things are getting better with my shoulder and muscle cramps. Not to mention that my hayfever subsided. My family got curious and also started to take Mg, and their asthma has gotten much better.
Thanks again for your info on this! I had researched this high and low but somehow never came upon Magnesium Chloride until your reporting.
WIND: magnesium deficiency is the norm, and it’s degrading the health of hundreds of millions of people worldwide, yet it’s exceedingly rare for doctors to ever mention magnesium to their patients, let alone know how to correctly test for magnesium deficiency—unacceptable, but sadly the norm.
The modern food supply is badly deficient in many things but particularly magnesium which is critical in hundreds of physiological processes, including mitochondrial energy production. Adequate dietary intake of magnesium via food is not really a solution; magnesium is one of those things you really cannot fix with dietary choices—you’d have to eat 5000 calories a day due to depleted soils and hence poor Mg content in food.
Getting adequate potassium in diet is fairly hard too—I say that based on carefully calculating intake on a day when I was trying to eat potassium-rich foods and yet barely getting to the RDA. Consider both magnesium chloride and potassium chloride.
