Most people we see medically tend to be deficient in Vitamin D which requires magnesium for the vitamin D to be assimilated. One reason people tend to get deficient in magnesium is because of drinking water that has fluoride added to it. This is why when you are on-the-road make sure you ask if the water your are drinking is "filtered." Fluoride binds with magnesium creating a insoluble mineral compound that ends up deposited in the bones and can make them brittle. Coffee and alcohol can deplete magnesium as well as to much processed sugar and processed food. Commercial farming is the biggest issue because now our soil has been depleted of most minerals, especially magnesium.
Keeping your magnesium at the correct levels is very easy to accomplish and blood level can be easily tested. You have 2 options to get your levels tested.Magnesium RBC is used to find out how much INTERCELLULAR magnesium is in circulation and Magnesium, Serum is used to measure the level of magnesium in the blood. I recommend you make sure you know your RBC levels. You can also supplement with magnesium in various ways or combine ALL the options below in a Self Management Home Health Care Program!
