Since reading this book we both are now taking 400mg of magnesium a day and the changes in just a couple of weeks have been incredible. For the first time in probably 10 years we are both sleeping through the night like babies...almost every night...and dreaming crazy dreams! Before my husband always said he never dreamed and we learned that is a symptom of mag deficiency. Now we are both so much ore relaxed and calm. It has taken the edge off, and the twitches and soreness is dramatically less. But the most exciting for us has been his blood pressure numbers. They are way down. From the 160's/high 90's to the 120's/low 80's and 70's and even yesterday he had a lower number in the 60's. Unbelievable for him.
I have to mention that our symptoms were actually getting a little worse right before we started on Magnesium because I had read that the BP meds were types of diuretics. So I found a natural diuretic in hibiscus (Jamaican) tea and it does work well to flush out the water. But what I learned from this book is that diuretics can cause dehydration. This can thicken the blood and can actually cause high BP and also constipation and flushes out the minerals, making magnesium levels even lower. And we both were drinking hibiscus tea (which is so delicious by the way) daily. So now that we learned through this book how diuretics can make things worse, we are limiting our hibiscus tea for when we feel we have overloaded on salt when eating out. But we will be sticking with the magnesium supplements. It is like turning back the clock 20 years. My husband is like a new man.
I am not discrediting doctors, I think very highly them and have a lot of respect for their knowledge, but NO ONE mentioned to us to try magnesium before suggesting going on meds. Either they don't know about natural remedies or liability risk encourages them to write a script. Maybe the fix is just too simple. Or maybe it doesn't work for everyone so they suggest it to no one. Do you own research. You have to take control of your own health. If you've gotten this far in your research to be reading these reviews, you are on the right track! Get this book!

Mar 2017 - Update: We are still taking our 400 mg of magnesium a day. We both recently had our blood work done and had magnesium levels tested just to make sure we weren't over doing it and it showed our mag levels were perfectly normal. (But I read that the blood test isn't that accurate and one could still be deficient even if the levels show normal.) And I wanted to update that my husband's blood pressure is consistently NORMAL. He continues to exercise, has cut way back on sugar, and mostly is keeping the extra 20 lbs off. He no longer consistently snores, thanks to the weight loss I suspect. We both are sleeping better than we have for years thanks to that and the magnesium. And on a positive note for me, I no longer struggle with constipation. I have celiac disease and constipation comes with the territory. But the nightly magnesium dose has cured that. I can eat chocolate again (which is very constipating) without a problem. That alone is worth it for me. :) We are no longer experiencing any muscle twitches or mysterious aches and my husband consistently says how good he feels. It is truly amazing. He is so much more mellow and able to enjoy life, no longer bug-eyed and on the edge all the time. Read about which ones are best absorbed. Magnesium Chloride is well absorbed. This book will tell you which ones are better absorbed and which ones aren't - for instance, Mag. Oxide isn't. And take a B6 when you take your mag or a good natural-sourced raw B-Complex. That also helps with absorption. But most importantly, read this book. I am not an expert, only giving our experiences, but she is!
