Are You Lacking Magnesium?

While magnesium may not sound all that important because it is not a “vitamin” it is more important than you can possibly imagine. Not only does magnesium keep your heart, bones and mind healthy, it also can reduce the effects of autism, help diabetes and limit the affects of anxiety disorders. That is a whole lot packed into the teeny tiny magnesium ion!

If you are lacking magnesium, there are a lot of symptoms that will let you know it. Some of these symptoms include:

  • Irregular heart rhythm
  • Muscle spasms
  • Mood swings
  • Depression Irritability
  • Anxiety
  • Tremors
  • Weakness
  • Fatigue
  • Confusion
  • Memory loss
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Hallucinations

Yikes! That is some pretty serious stuff there. If you are exhibiting any of these symptoms, you should definitely see your doctor right away.

However, some people in the earliest stages of magnesium deficiency may not have any symptoms at all. They may be on a gradual decline and hardly notice anything weird going on with their bodies until some serious complications arise like the above. But how can you tell if you are magnesium deficient if you have no symptoms?

That is easy. An at home wellness panel test should be able to tell you everything you need to know about the levels of magnesium in your body and if you have anything to worry about. A wellness panel works by detecting up to ten different substances at once. All you do is take four oral fluid samples throughout a 24-hour period, send it off to the lab and then wait a few days for your results. The shipping and lab fees are all included in the price of the testing kit.

Using an at home test kits can help you find out if you have a problem before you pay a visit to the doctor. With the healthcare industry on a steady decline, individuals have to take charge of their own healthcare and that means being forward thinking and testing yourself when you think there may be a problem afoot.

So once you complete this test and you find out you have low levels of magnesium, it is time to set up an appointment with your doctor. That way, you can go into the office knowing what your problem is. You will more than likely need to undergo another test to verify, but at least this way you can acknowledge what you think may be the problem from the get go.

Remember: prevention is by far the best cure. By testing yourself at home on a semi-regular basis, you can monitor your own levels of various substances and determine whether or not you need to seek treatment. You can stop a problem before it starts and before it begins to manifest itself through symptoms! Now that is the way to go about staying healthy.

    I’m 36 years old, mother of a 17yr old & almost 4 yr old. After the birth of my 2nd child I had gained about 60lbs. Being that I am tall, I wear the weight well but now several things are happening, toe twitching, Muscle pain and Spasms on my lower legs and slowly building its way to my thighs! I feel like I workout HARD and I don’t even move. The pain is keeping me from walking anywhere. I have chest pains at times and palpitations but hardly as much. I also have a very irregular mentrual cycle for instance no menses to maybe 2x a year. I have already ruled out Lupus, Diabetes, High Blood Pressure and Cholestral, EKG’s done, Sugar etc is all perfect. Any suggestions or is anyone experiencing the same symptoms? email: maria_morales329@yahoo.com
