5.0 out of 5 stars The Magnesium Miracle, October 18, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Magnesium Miracle (Revised and Updated Edition) (Paperback)
After reading this book, along with also having first-hand knowledge about the importance of magnesium, which indeed is a "miracle," I cannot understand why more information is not coming forward on this most important nutrient, the missing link in regaining your health. Back last winter, my wife became concerned when I had difficulty getting out of a chair, was having horrible hip pain and back pain. She researched, then started growing concerned that maybe I was showing early signs of Parkinson's. Needless to say, the research turned up several important things, but most importantly, magnesium deficiency seemed to be a number one factor causing many illnesses. Around this time frame, we found out about magnesium w/SRT (magnesium malate; malic acid), and it literally changed our lives overnight. That magnesium w/SRT is the one that was definitely a magnesium miracle for us. Then, around this same point in time, just about the same time we found magnesium w/SRT, we also found out about Dr. Carolyn Dean's book, and this has been such a blessing. You can tell others how it changed you overnight, but if you're deficient, it really will, and most people are deficient in magnesium. This book is so well written, so comprehensive in revealing the importance of the benefits of magnesium and just what a magnesium deficiency causes. This book is not only written for health-care professionals, but it's also for laypeople such as my wife and I. This book is for everyone. It's for people with depression, chest pain, migraines, muscle spasms, nerve problems, asthma, leg cramps, fatigue, hypertension, insomnia, and the list goes on and on. For the first time in over 20 years, my wife is free of back pain and horrible muscle spasms in her back. I can now get up from a chair normally, walk, do all the things that I need to do without back and hip pain. Dr. Dean is a wonderful expert in magnesium deficiencies, and she would tell you personally, I believe, it's time to take charge of your health!

As a regular customer of Jigsaw Health, I heartily concur with this re-viewer's comments. I have become virtually PAIN-FREE from my primary complaints of Carpal-Tunnel distress, overall age-related aches and pains, osteoarthritis troubles, Type ll Diabetes blood-range values have decreased exponentially , and my earlier hypertension readings have plummeted; all of these improvements have occurred within a matter of days!! I began my supplementation on Tues., 04-22-2009, and by Thurs., 04-24-2009 my Carpal-Tunnel distress was M-I-A! Yippee!! By Sun., 04-26-2009 (today), I awoke from a very sound and restful sleep to discover that although I'm still feeling somewhat stiff in the usual places, ALL of my usual body aches and pains are GONE!!! Woo-Hoo! The only thing that I've done differently is to add the 'Magnesium w/SRT' to my daily regimen of Herbs & Vitamin supplementation. I'm certain that the addition of the Jigsaw Health's formulation is the reason for my remarkable rebound to feeling like my old self, circa 1980's. How's this for a confirmation/review. "More, please." I'm going to order more of this miracle product as soon as I finish this comment. Oh, and by the way, a totally unexpected bonus of pain-free living, is the return to my joyful self; I'm more happy than I've been in recent years. I'm sure that the Magnesium must be playing its part in my renewed sense of chirpiness and joie d' vie.

Jenny,
How much Mag are you taking, and is it in capsel, tablet, or powder?
What is SRT?
Btw, you need Magnesium for calcium to absorb in your Bones & body.
Thank you..

Like Jenny, I'm taking JigSaw Magnesium w/SRT and I swear by it. It's in caplet form and very easy to swallow. I take their (not RDA) recommended amount, 500 mg which equals 4 caplets. I split this between AM/PM. This is probably the only magnesium supplement you can take 500 mg of and not get diarrhea. If I don't take it I get horrible muscle spasms in my back and foot. I ingest enough calcium/dairy where I don't need to supplement. SRT = Sustained Release Technology

Wonderful product that I have purchased and given away. Especially to my niece who has fibromyalgia. In her Fibro support group she did remarkably better than her peers and functioned well enought to go back to work. I have also given it to relatives with diabetes.

It's worth a try for sure. Also consider trying other things such as massage, and some good exercises, like the ones in Treat Your Own Hand and Thumb Osteoarthritis.
