This review is from: Transdermal Magnesium Therapy:A New Modality for the Maintenance of Health (Kindle Edition)I have a blog about healthy lifestyle choices and how they affect me, so Dr. Mark Sircus' books are an absolute must read for me. His research on the use of magnesium chloride is stellar and his recommendations for use of magnesium chloride are starting to show up in mainstream medicine.
I am currently taking magnesium orally and transdermally and will publish my results in a few months time but I already feel that knee pain has decreased and my cramping feet have improved much more than they had with any other type of magnesium.

How long have you been using the mag oil? Did it help your foot cramping fairly quickly? How much are you using. I am asking because this is precisely why I am taking mag oil. For horrid foot cramps. It's all very discouraging so your info is useful to me.

When my feet are cramping I spray 5-10 sprays of magnesium oil on each foot and then again up the calf. I also take oral magnesium chloride and have found my cramping to be greatly reduced. Here is my blog on the subject: http://krisinsight.com/2011/02/07/miracul
If transdermal magnesium provides no relief you might want to look in to your potassium levels at the cellular level (RBC magnesium) might be recommended. Low potassium can also cause cramping of muscles.
Have you read Dr. Mark Sircus' book on Transdermal Magnesium? It is a must read for anyone with cramping muscles and/or heart disease.

I have only read posts, not his books. Do you recommend the first or second book to start? Or are they both very similar? My potasium levels are good according to my blood panel. I think I am just very depleted. So will keep up with the oil using twice a day at 50 pumps per session.

This review is about his second book on Transdermal Magnesium, it looks like the first one was published in 2007 and this one in 2012. I recently read in either his book or another one I am reading (Magnesium for High Blood Pressure) that 1-2 ounces of magnesium oil is used. Do you think that would be 50 sprays? I know it would be quite a bit of magnesium oil. I hope it works.

To be honest I am not sure! They recommended putting it in an ounce cup to measure it out, and then applying it. That you know you are getting the right amount. I do 50 or so morning and then night. I am really hoping to pull out of low magnesium status and feel normal again! My oldest daughter is pre diabetic. I am hoping she will start using the oil as well. I understand it can really help balance blood sugar.
