She references highly credible multiple research studies that you can read yourself to back up her claims. (I read a bunch of them.. they hold up). If you have figured out that chemical meds are not the answer for you- her Re-set program may be the Godsend for you that it has been for me and the few people (so far) in my life who have been up for trying the intervention on themselves. This book and my applying it to my recovery from MCS disease could have saved me 4 really horrible years of debilitating illness and my entire retirement savings spent on expensive supplements and protocols that never really delivered the stability that my system is starting to achieve after not even 1 month following her protocol. Everyone is different, and, 80-% of us are magnesium deficient. I promise you, she is worth listening to. Best, most useful info I have found in 4 years of researching and trying things with getting my life back on the line. Happy to say i am doing terrific and the more I listen to her radio show and read her blogs, the more I appreciate her work and contribution to health care in general and my ability to take care of my system and understand what is going on within it in new and empowering ways.
Magnesium is the supplement that I find my self advising the most often. I suggest it to people with high blood pressure, menstrual cramps, insomnia, depression and irritability as well as nerve problems and constipation. I have relatives who are downright irritable. This book has helped me give them reasons why they should be taking magnesium. I will say, you should really try magnesium for sleep or for hypertension. I don't go up to them and say "You are an irritable person, take this and chill." No, I would say that I read in the "Magnesium Miracle" how important magnesium is for the heart and to lower blood pressure naturally, and give them a bottle of magnesium too. One relative even stated how magnesium helped him to quit smoking. Read this book and you will be a magnesium expert.
The author suggests her brand Re-mag. I have never tried it. Some forms that I am familiar with and which I would recommend are: magnesium citrate by either Thorne Research or Superior Labs or the Natural Calm gummy that has magnesium citrate if you have fussy kids, magnesium malate by Seeking Health which is a chewable or Jigsaw's slow release magnesium malate. Jigsaw also has magnesium glycinate by itself to take at night, if you are using their slow release malate during the day. There are some good combination products too. I like Innovix's combination of magnesium malate with magnesium glycinate and Triple Calm has a combination of citrate, malate and glycinate. Corganic website sells a product called Wake up Maggie! It is expensive probably because of the magnesium orotate but that product contains a combination of boron, and magnesium orotate, malate and taurinate (taurate). I have the MTHFR genetic snp and do not do well with methyfolate or methycobalamin. I do better with Perfect's or Ancestral's, etc. dessicated liver pills for folate and b12. Dr. Lynch has a strategy for raising Sam-e without taking methylated vitamins which is to take creatine or PC. I take creatine which is in the form of magnesium creatinate from Seeking Health.That is yet another form of magnesium I did have low creatine scores before taking it. Usually people with bad kidneys may have high scores, and people with low scores may have low muscle mass. At any rate, I am not sure if taking magnesium creatine is helping or more exercise is helping but my scores are now right in the middle of the reference range. Finally, there is magnesium threonate (usually quite a low dose) and I am also familiar with Nutricology's magnesium chloride for those who want to ingest a liquid form. Generally the additive magnesium strearate is considered undesirable in a magnesium product and magnesium oxide is considered a form of magnesium that is not highly useful . Dr. Lynch's Seeking Health's Optimal Magnesium product does have a small amount of magnesium oxide in it as well. He has explained the advantages of having a small amount of magnesium oxide it the formula.
I take 100mg of Innovix's magnesium malate/glycinate or alternate with magnesium citrate sometimes and about another 80mg of magnesium when I take Seeking Health's Creatine product. I love Seeking Health's magnesium malate chewable but I try to save those for the kids. On the rare occasion that I can't sleep, I will take 100-200mg Jigsaw's magnesium glycinate. I measured my magnesium status before I started supplementing with the RBC test and came up with 5.9 so according to Dr. Dean, I would have been considered only mildly deficient. That is why I don't take a lot. My autistic daughter takes more than 300mg/day. Depressed people may need a relatively large amount. Taking magnesium for menstrual cramps my require a larger amount also during the times of the cramps. I have also tried topical magnesium spray. I have tried it on some joints without relief but on other joints, for me the finger joints, it is nearly miraculous. Buy a bottle and try some if you suffer from nerve or joint pain. It might work for you. The book Transdermal Magnesium is a great resource on magnesium in general but especially good for those people that would like to try magnesium for joints, nerves or really any reason. Read both books if you are a magnesium fanatic.
