Today's topic is one that is very personal to me. Many years ago, before I became a natural health advocate, I experienced a period of very poor health. For more than three years I struggled with physical illness and mental health issues, including high blood pressure, fatigue, chronic migraines, anxiety and depression. My health status fluctuated, first forcing me to withdraw from law school, only to improve, then later cause me to stop working and living independently.
After seeing many specialists, and trying various medications and combinations, it was working with a naturopathic doctor that finally allowed me to restore my health. At this point, there were several factors influencing how I felt: side effects and interactions from medications being number one. I also had several other contributing factors including poor nutritional status, systemic yeast, endocrine imbalance and you guessed it, magnesium deficiency. And I'm not alone on that one. Studies show that up to 70% of North Americans don't get enough magnesium in their diet! So here's your crash course on this vital mineral.
