You’ve heard the saying “To err is human, to forgive is divine”? In the medical world, to err is human, to test is divine. I’m not a huge fan of laboratory tests because the results are compared to average values in our unhealthy population, not to optimal values. And errors can occur. I tell my readers that lab testing should be used to confirm what our senses and intuition tells us. But all too often doctors place all their faith in tests and only glance at the results, looking for numbers above or below normal.
Tonight on my weekly radio program I’m going to do a comprehensive presentation on the pros and cons of lab testing:
- Hair analysis
- Stool Analysis
- Genetic Testing
- X-rays, CT scans, MRIs,
- EEGs, EKGs
When it comes to supplementing with magnesium, I do not think that the majority of people require testing. Magnesium is extremely safe, and it does produce a laxative effect when you take too much at one time or when you are saturated with magnesium after several months of supplementation. Even with ReMag, which is fully absorbed at the cellular level, when cell saturation is reached you will experience the laxative effect. I encourage you to follow your magnesium deficiency symptoms and the 100 Factors Related to Magnesium Deficiency as guides to how much magnesium you should take.
Since most people are deficient and magnesium is one of the safest nutrients, I tell people to just start taking it and keep track of symptoms, and you will see for yourself how it’s working for you. This process is called an oral clinical trial.
There may be other situations where a diagnostic test can be beneficial and we’ll talk about these tonight on my show as well as what type of test you may want to have if you decide to test your magnesium sufficiency as you continue your supplementation program. Please join us tonight for TO TEST IS DIVINE– DIAGNOSING AND FIXING NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCIESalong with a wide range of health topics and safe solutions. You will love hearing the beneficial interactions with our callers and hosts alike including the body/mind connection, identifying the ‘conflict’ in the ‘conflict basis’ of disease and much more!!
