The impulse for any and all movement in the body arises from electrical transmissions. These micro currents of electricity that pass along the nerves were first measured in 1966. Scientists soon discovered that the conductor for these bodily electrical currents is calcium and that magnesium is essential to maintain the proper level of calcium in the blood and cells.
Magnesium and calcium remain positively charged, but when they contact negatively charged particles, they form an electrical current. The fatty acids in the nerve tissue are negatively charged, which is why magnesium levels must constantly be renewed in order to retain a proper nerve current. It’s also why we need to eat healthy fats to maintain proper nerve conduction.
When calcium is not properly balanced by magnesium a calcium overload will occur. Calcium overload is one of the main causes of nerve pain and inflammation within the body. On tonight’s radio program I will emphasize the role that calcium and other antagonists like fluoride, and sugar play in nerve pain and that can neutralize calcium with magnesium and stop eating so much sugar to dramatically reduce your levels of inflammation.
The FDA and drug companies are aware of the importance of treating inflammation, but regrettably they are using drugs, with all their side effects, as the primary treatment instead of recommending magnesium. Even worse, anti-inflammatory steroids and many nonsteroidal anti- inflammatory drugs are often fluoride compounds, which means they bind up magnesium. Hence, treating inflammation with ineffective and unsafe drugs inevitably creates more inflammation. The worst seems to be gabapentin, which besides having many side effects seems to be addictive.
Fortunately, clinical experience and research in nerve pain conditions show that magnesium can be an effective treatment for nerve pain. The interaction of magnesium with calcium causes muscles to relax and nerves to fire properly. Beyond that, it’s possible for magnesium supplements to promote something as dramatic as sciatic nerve regeneration and decrease inflammatory responses. In this particular study, magnesium-rich diets enhanced nerve regeneration and improved neurological recovery in mice with sciatic nerve injuries.
A therapeutic magnesium like ReMag can be used to get a substantial and beneficial amount of magnesium into the body to settle down muscles and nerves! Not only does magnesium helps calm both the nervous system and your muscles – helping to ease nerve-related pain and restless legs, but it can also ease anxiety and promote better sleep – which can be hugely beneficial to those whose muscle or nerve pain makes sleep difficult.
