Stress is an inherent part of everyday life. You just have to work around it, and even with it, to attain your goals. However, sleep is necessary to recuperate from everyday activities. With proper relaxation and sleep, your cells have the chance to regenerate to function optimally the following day. You have to reduce stress and improve your sleeping patterns to achieve ideal physical and mental health.

Increasing Your Magnesium Levels

With today's diet, it's easy to overlook the fact that you might be deficient in magnesium. Magnesium is needed for strong teeth, muscles, joints, and bones. It's also very helpful for reducing stress and improving your sleeping patterns. Because of today's fast-paced lifestyle, there are several reasons why many of us are lacking the magnesium our bodies require, and things that deplete magnesium levels in our body. An increase in the consumption of sugar, caffeine, and alcohol, inadequate sleep, use of pesticides in produce, filtration systems in water supplies, and too the fact that people are under too much pressure, causing anxiety, are all responsible for depleting the body's much needed magnesium.

For health reasons, you should take the initiative to increase the levels of magnesium in your body. If you live near the sea, you can do this by swimming in the ocean every day. The ocean is rich in magnesium. However, if you are too far from the ocean, you can simply apply magnesium oil to your skin, the easiest method of increasing your levels of magnesium. If you do this every day, you will eventually reduce stress in your life and attain better sleep patterns.

Do You Have Enough Magnesium?

Babybearmian upload3 mg oil.jpg

Statistics show that about 90 percent of Americans these days are magnesium deficient, even those who eat a healthy diet. The reason behind this is that the soil that our food grows in, is itself, lacking in magnesium, making it a challenge to get the minerals through the food we eat.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

The following are signs and symptoms of magnesium deficiency:

  • Headaches.
  • Fatigue.
  • Difficulty sleeping.
  • Hormonal imbalance.
  • Premenstrual syndrome.
  • Anxiety.
  • Low energy levels.

If you're thinking of taking oral magnesium supplement, think again. Magnesium is not optimally absorbed when ingested. The ideal delivery to get magnesium into your system is absorption or transdermal (medicines being absorbed through the skin). You don't even need a prescription from your doctor to acquire this form of magnesium supplement. Instead of being injected with a magnesium supplement, you only need to apply it to your skin in the form of oil. It is a lot more convenient, non-invasive, more effective, and much safer.

Magnesium, in the form of oil, can be used as an additive to your bath or massage oil. Both methods give you a powerful, speedy medical treatment. If administered every day, you will be able to reap the many benefits magnesium offers. If you want to manage your pain with the help of magnesium oil, you should massage it into the affected area. Most patients with chronic pain are benefited by their daily magnesium massages. People who suffer from fibromyalgia, cramps, constipation, and migraines, receive relief through a magnesium oil massage. The following are some ways in which magnesium oil is used:

  1. 1
    Sports Medicine.
    Magnesium oil is now used in sports medicine. It is directly applied to the inflamed. The oil reduces the amount of pain and swelling, while initiating tissue regeneration. Once the magnesium oil is applied, the body becomes more flexible, resulting in fewer injuries. In liquid form, magnesium chloride can just be sprayed on the affected area. Magnesium is also used in foot soaks to treat or prevent injuries in the leg or hamstring. TMT (transdermal magnesium therapy) is becoming recognized as a staple in sports medicine.

  2. 2
    Massage.

Magnesium massages really bring the truth in the words "healing touch". By massaging your body with magnesium oil, your cells get their daily dose of magnesium. The frequency of applying magnesium on your skin depends on your size – obviously much less for children.
