|The Power of Magnesium|
There is no healing system more powerful than that which employs Nature’s primordial substances; materials so pure and close to nature that they yield benefits without the typical side effects of most drugs. The secret to safe and effective medicine is found in using medicinal substances that do not have side effects in reasonable doses. This is the very meaning of safe, something that will not harm or hurt you.
I received a letter from a professional colleague named George Eby in 2007 that stated that his daughter was destroyed by the terrible side effects of a special type of antibiotic called fluoroquinolones. He said, “My daughter was stricken with this horrible affliction. Cipro sensitivity causes long term (multiple years to life) chronic pain, weakness and tendon weakness leading to tendon breakage and many other horrible effects, some physical and some mental. This is something that everyone needs to know about. We have been destroyed by cipro. I don’t think there is much anyone can do, except to give her magnesium, which is somewhat of an antidote. I am very worried but I haven’t lost hope, but I am being realistic. Some of the tendon damage is necrotic and permanent. However, we have studies with rattlesnake venom that produce necrosis on animals and simply applying magnesium (chloride) and zinc (gluconate) topically, the necrosis vanishes.” Ten days later I received this email from George.
“Topical magnesium chloride for 10 days = well daughter!”
There is a power and a force in magnesium chloride that cannot be equaled anywhere else in the world of medicine. There is no substitute for magnesium in human physiology; nothing comes even close to it in terms of its effect on overall cell physiology. It goes against a strong gale wind of medical science to ignore magnesium chloride used transdermally in the treatment of any chronic or acute disorder.
In the emergency room medicines have to be safe while delivering an instant life saving burst of healing power. Magnesium obviously is the heavy weight champion in this regard though there is a terrible ignorance about this fact. Its like medical hypnosis, doctors cannot see what is in front of their very eyes. They have a medical super weapon that unfortunately no one can make much money off, so it’s not supported in the literature or in medical schools. Talking about the blinding light of conflict of interest, in the area of medicine it kills millions. In the area of magnesium medicine there is a mountain range of scientists who have for decades penetrated magnesium’s secrets. There are four hundred references in this book, the majority linking to original medical research.
Magnesium is life saving and that is power. It is as simple as that! Magnesium has the power to reduce human suffering in a wide variety of clinical situations. Results of a 10-year study published in the August 28, 2008 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine found that magnesium sulfate administered to women delivering before 32 weeks of gestation reduced the risk of cerebral palsy by 50 percent. The Beneficial Effects of Antenatal Magnesium Sulfate (BEAM) trial was conducted in 18 centers in the U.S., including Northwestern Memorial, and is the first prenatal intervention ever found to reduce the instance of cerebral palsy related to premature birth. Magnesium sulfate is traditionally used in obstetrics to stop premature labor and prevent seizures in women with hypertension.
Obviously if a medicine is safe and strong enough for emergency situations it is going to help us with chronic diseases. The field of cardiology has to deal with heart disease as both an acute and chronic disorder and that is just one more reason they should fall heads of heels in love with magnesium chloride. Magnesium is truly astounding in terms of safety, low cost and proven effectiveness.
Put in the clearest terms possible, our suggestion from the first day for cancer patients is to almost drown oneself in transdermally applied magnesium chloride. George Eby used on his slight daughter approximately one ounce applied to the skin a day.
When I used magnesium chloride treatments for sports reasons I used upward of two ounces each day for immediate pain relief and muscle relaxation. Such intensive use would almost equal the healing power that is achieved with intravenous magnesium chloride/sulfate when used in emergency rooms and intensive care wards. At the back of this book is even a chapter on magnesium massage and taking luscious baths for transdermal affect is at the core of magnesium medicine practices.
The Power of Magnesium VS the Power of Poison
Magnesium is life saving, it is as simple as that. And it is not just for cardiac care. Results of a 10-year study published in the August 28, 2008 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine found that magnesium sulfate administered to women delivering before 32 weeks of gestation reduced the risk of cerebral palsy by 50 percent. The Beneficial Effects of Antenatal Magnesium Sulfate (BEAM) trial was conducted in 18 centers in the U.S., including Northwestern Memorial, and is the first prenatal intervention ever found to reduce the instance of cerebral palsy related to premature birth.

"What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger" is a phrase that many feel contains more than a grain of truth. It describes the theory of hormesis — the process whereby organisms exposed to low levels of stress or toxins become more resistant to tougher challenges. It is a cousin concept for "The dose makes the poison." The original quote actually is: "All things are poison and nothing (is) without poison; only the dose makes that a thing is no poison."
The theory of hormesis has been around for decades, but has long been met with skepticism or downright suspicion. On the other hand "The dose makes the poison," has been widely embraced. It is the essence, the center of allopathic pharmacology. In recent years, however, biologists have pieced together a clear molecular explanation of how hormesis works thus the theory has finally been accepted as a fundamental principle of biology and biomedicine. An example of this principle is seen when exposing mice to small doses of gamma ray radiation shortly before irradiating them with very high levels of gamma rays actually decreases the likelihood of cancer. A similar effect occurs when dioxin is given to rats.
It is thought that a low dose of a poison can trigger certain repair mechanisms in the body, and these mechanisms, having been initiated, are efficient enough that they not only neutralize the toxin’s effect, but can even repair other defects not caused by the toxin. Nice theory to justify poisoning people and taking pot luck at achieving exactly the right dose. It makes much more sense to dance with magnesium and other extraordinarily safe substances that don’t poison the patient.
