Could Magnesium benefit you?

As most of you know I took a long vacation from blogging. During this time I was experiencing daily migraines, anxiety, difficulty sleeping, and difficulty focusing. I always seemed to be so tired, but could never fall asleep. It had a huge impact on my life, my work, and my relationships with others. I had been to my doctor multiple times and was placed on medication for depression, sleep, and migraines. Sadly the Topamax for migraines made me more forgetful than I already was and the sleeping medicine made me feel groggy every morning.

I had mentioned to my doctor that I thought some of my problems may be related to some sort of vitamin deficiency, but all of the blood work came back fine. I had no idea what else to do.

One day I made a stop at the local health food store, Healthy Habits. This was the best thing I could have done. The owner of the store was very knowledgeable in vitamin and mineral supplements. She recommended Natural Calm (magnesium supplement) and a food based energy multi-vitamin. At this point I would have tried anything and I am so glad that I did.

After reading up on Magnesium deficiencies I learned that every symptom I was experiencing could be a direct result of a deficiency. I also learned that blood work could show adequate magnesium levels even if you are suffering from this deficiency since the majority of magnesium is used intracellularly. Magnesium has a huge impact on our bodies and could easily be overlooked. Magnesium can have direct impacts on blood sugar, blood pressure, cardiovascular health, stress management and more.

Many people in the United States are magnesium deficient and do not realize it. Wikipedia actually states that "61% of the US population does not meet the US RDA for levels of magnesium." Magnesium deficiency can cause lots of medically related symptoms that could be treated simply with a Magnesium supplement.

If you are experiencing any of the problems that I have mentioned earlier than you may want to look into a magnesium supplement. I am so glad that I did!

The last few months have been so crazy I cannot believe how much time has gone by since I stopped blogging! Now things are finally starting to calm down and I have found that I miss it. I hope that I can remember how to jump back into it. I also have to do some evaluating on what I want to accomplish with Brea's Mommy. I know that I want the sharing and interactions with other bloggers. After all that is what I miss the most! Other than that I am going to go slow and see what happens! I am looking forward to catching up with everyone soon!
