Who Needs Magnesium?

According to Dr Carolyn Dean M.D., N.D. in her book “The Miracle of Magnesium”, practically everyone. Particularly those with muscle/joint pain, migraine, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure, those with arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes, restless legs syndrome, chronic fatigue, depression, anxiety, stress, heart disease, PMS, kidney stones, gout, insomnia, those who take calcium without magnesium, and those who exercise, particularly athletes.

Why is Transdermal (absorbed through the skin) Magnesium Chloride the best option?

Topical Magnesium Chloride immediately relieves muscle pain, activates cell energy (ATP) thus rejuvenating the body. Magnesium Chloride applied to the skin assists in cleaning the cells of excess acids, toxins & heavy metals; plus it helps to assimilate excess calcium which is often the cause of many diseases including heart disease, arthritis & osteoporosis. Our bodies do not produce magnesium, and it has all but gone from the soils and food chain says Dr Mark Sircus.

What does Magnesium Chloride, transdermally applied, do that oral magnesium tablets/powders cannot do?

  • Magnesium Chloride quickly passes through the skin & works immediately to reduce body pain & raise magnesium levels 12 times faster than oral supplementation, by-passing the digestive process completely.
  • It increases crucial ATP or cellular energy to assist in the transporting out of the body the CAUSE of the pain- usually toxins, acids, excess calcium and heavy metals.
  • It de-stresses as it soothes the nervous system and triggers DHEA, the master or youth hormone which controls all of the other hormones in our body.
  • Over 3300mg of elemental magnesium is in each 30ml rubbed into the skin - and in a few minutes, it's in there working to balance the entire body at a cellular level. This amount of magnesium cannot be tolerated by the digestive system with oral magnesium.
  • Magnesium Chloride oil, transdermally applied, can rapidly improve your health, energy and state of well being....naturally.

Why are oral magnesium supplements so slow to raise crucial magnesium levels?

The signs of magnesium deficiency are many. Restless legs, cramps, muscle spasms, aching muscles, lack of energy, migraines, high blood pressure, arthritis, osteoporosis, anxiety are just a few as described by Dr Carolyn Dean in her ground breaking book The Miracle of Magnesium. Transdermal Magnesium Therapy offers a stunning breakthrough in medicine, an entirely new way to supplement magnesium that naturally increases DHEA levels, boosts cellular magnesium levels quickly, relieves pain & brings down blood pressure. Magnesium chloride oil, delivered transdermally, brings a quick release from a broad range of conditions. Magnesium chloride is one of the best kept secrets, not only in natural medicine, but in the world of allopathic medicine where it is used in emergency rooms to save lives" Dr Mark Sircus. Based on the Gold Coast, Queensland, MagnesiumLife specialises in Transdermal Magnesium Chloride Oil and educating people about the many benefits of using it via the skin. “Topical application of pure, high strength magnesium chloride oil is a cornerstone for achieving vibrant health and once you have experienced it first hand you will be convinced of its integrity.  

Where is it sourced?

MagnesiumLife Pure Magnesium Chloride Oil is sourced from an Ancient seabed in Northern Europe. It has been preserved at 1500 -2000 feet for over 250 million years to its pristine condition, uncontaminated from pollutants. This pure magnesium source is the one that delivers the most potent therapeutic benefits - Daniel Reid, Byron Bay - best selling author of many natural health books including The Tao of Detox - and leading expert on eastern medicine.    

How to Use Transdermal Magnesium

Can I use it more than once per day?

Certainly. For example, you can take a few body sprays in the A.M. and when you get home in the P.M. you can repeat or soak your feet in a magnesium foot soak. This is particularly useful and encouraged if you're not feeling 100%.

What is the benefit of the transdermal magnesium application over oral magnesium supplementation?

Magnesium supplements taken orally are often poorly absorbed and when taken in larger doses may cause diarrhoea. Transdermal application where Magnesium Life Magnesium Oil is applied topically to the skin bypasses the digestive system and raises levels effectively.

Is magnesium 'oil' actually an oil?

No. Magnesium "oil" is a coiner term for a highly saturated solution of magnesium chloride in water along with other trace elements, which happens to present itself in an oil-like texture due to its hygroscopic nature (attracts water molecules).

Can I use magnesium oil as a massage oil?

Absolutely! In fact, the use of magnesium oil in massages melts away knots and painful areas much more effectively than massage alone. Not to mention the added benefit of increasing the absorption of the magnesium through the skin. If your massage therapist has not yet discovered the many wonders of Magnesium Life Magnesium Oil, take some along for them to try. They'll thank you for it.

Are there any contraindications?

Those people with sever renal (kidney) insufficiency (failure) or very low blood pressure should seek the advice of their health care professional first. Otherwise transdermal application of magnesium oil is completely safe and once can not overdose.

Will I experience any detox symptoms?

You may initially, but this is quite normal, as it is a sign that your body is eliminating unwanted toxins from the body. A magnesium foot soak is helpful during this process as it not only is soothing and gentle, but it assists with the body's absorption of this essential mineral.

What is the difference between types of magnesium chloride oil?

Magnesium Life Magnesium Chloride Oil is derived from a 250 million year old ancient seabed, deep in the interior of the earth. It is regarded as the purest and highest grade and quality magnesium chloride oil and bath flakes in the world and is clear and odourless. This is especially good for the body, hair, face and mouth. Magnesium Chloride farmed from the ocean or inland waters can contain heavy metals, particularly mercury and lead.

Why haven't I heard about the benefits of transdermally applied Magnesium Chloride before?

A good question for your health care professional. Transdermal Magnesium Chloride application is more common overseas. There are a number of books written by medical doctors outlining the many health benefits. Particularly as many people can not take magnesium orally in the amounts required to re-balance the body's requirements. The skin is our largest organ and through transdermal application the magnesium bypasses the sensitive digestive tract allowing larger doses to be safely, quickly and more easily absorbed.

Where can I read more about the benefits of Magnesium Chloride?

We highly recommend the following books, which are also available in our shop.
    • Transdermal Magnesium Therapy by Dr. Mark Sircus, Ac, O.M.D."Magnesium deficiency has been scientifically identified as a critical factor in the onset of a wide variety of diseases, from heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, inflammation and stroke, to Alzheimer's, autism, cancer and many more".
    • The Magnesium Miracle by Dr. Carolyn Dean, M.D., N.D. "Discover the missing link to total health. Lower the risk of heart disease, prevent stroke and obesity, treat diabetes, improve mood and memory, alleviate muscle pain, insomnia and help prevent a host of serious illnesses such as depression".
    • The Magnesium Factor by Dr. Mildred S. Seeling, M.D., M.P.H. Master, American College of Nutrition"How on simple nutrient can prevent, treat and reverse high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and other chronic conditions".

Am I Magnesium Deficient?

Am I Magnesium Deficient?

Studies published in The Journal of Intensive Care Medicine, have shown that a deficiency in this critical nutrient can make you twice as likely to die early than others. It also accounts for a long list of symptoms and diseases — which are easily helped and often cured by simply adding this nutrient into your diet. In fact, this nutrient is one of my secret weapons against illness. Yet up to half of us are deficient in this nutrient and are unaware.

According to the World Health Organisation, many western countries display high rates of magnesium deficiency, with countries such as America and certain European countries failing to meet the recommended daily intake by as much as 80% of the population.

Possible signs that you could be magnesium deficient are:

• Muscle cramps or twitches
• Insomnia
• Irritability
• Sensitivity to loud noises
• Anxiety
• Autism
• ADD
• Palpitations
• Angina
• Constipation
• Anal spasms
• Headaches
• Migraines
• Fibromyalgia
• Chronic fatigue
• Asthma
• Kidney stone>
• Diabetes
• Obesity
• Osteoporosis
• High blood pressure
• PMS
• Menstrual cramps
• Irritable bladder
• Irritable bowel syndrome
• Reflux
• Trouble swallowing

If you have more than one of the above symptoms, it is highly likely you could be deficient in magnesium, and could benefit from some sort of magnesium supplement.


Magnesium is necessary for many functions throughout the body such as;

• Relieves muscle cramp and twitches
• Decreases insulin resistance
• Provides rigidity and flexibility to your bones
• Increases absorption of calcium
• Regulates blood pressure
• Promotes restful sleep
• Lessens or removes ADD or ADHD in children
• Aids weight loss
• Treats asthma and emphysema
• Allows for proper vitamin D consumption
• Enhances circulation
• Helps prevent congestive heart failure
• Prevents and reverses kidney stones
• Lowers cholesterol levels and triglycerides
• Ends cluster and migrane headaches
• Helps make proteins
• Aids the digestion of carbohydrates
• Prevents osteoporosis
• Can prevent atherosclerosis and stroke
• Relieves fibromyalgia and chronic pain
• New evidence showing preventative roles in many cancers
• Inflammation in the body and higher CRP (c-reactive protein).

Therefore by adding enough Magnesium into your diet, you could help lower Magnesium deficiency linked to many of the problems associated, and reap the health benefits.

Magnesium has long been widely used throughout medicine, with doctors using it for many various ailments. It features as a critical part of the emergency room crash cart in the form of intravenous magnesium, used in life threatening arrhythmia (irregular heart beat). It has been used for constipation, or in the preparation of a colonoscopy, in the form of Milk of Magnesia or liquid Magnesium Citrate, which empties the bowels. It has also been used in association with pre-term labour, high blood pressure (pre-eclampsia) or seizures, and given intravenously in these cases.

With this in mind, why is it then, that so many of us are low in magnesium?

Tests conducted using conservative standards of measurement (blood, or serum magnesium levels), found 65% of people admitted to the intensive care unit and about 15% of the general population have a magnesium deficiency.

This method of testing, however, is a very inaccurate way of testing for deficiencies, as only about 1% of the bodies magnesium is actually located in the blood. Therefore the true rates of magnesium deficiency are bound to be much higher and many cases are left untreated due to these errors in readings.

The reason many of us are so deficient is simple: Many of us eat a diet containing practically no magnesium. Modern diets consisting on highly-processed, refined food containing white flour, meat, and dairy (all of which have no magnesium), contribute to the levels of magnesium consumed today dwindling to less than half of what it was a century ago.

Much of modern life conspires to help us lose what little magnesium we do in our diet. Magnesium levels are decreased by excess alcohol, salt, coffee, phosphoric acid found in colas, profuse sweating (with exercise), prolonged or intense stress, chronic diarrhoea, excessive menstruation, diuretics (water pills), antibiotics and other medications, and some intestinal parasites. In fact, one study in Kosovo, found people dealing with chronic war stress lost large amounts of magnesium in their urine.

This is all further complicated by the fact that magnesium is often poorly absorbed and easily lost from our bodies. To properly absorb magnesium we need a lot of it in our diet, plus enough vitamin B6, vitamin D, and selenium to get the job done.
It is difficult to measure and hard to study, but magnesium deficiency accounts for much untold suffering — and is simple to correct. If you suffer from any of the symptoms mentioned or have any of the diseases noted, don’t worry — it can be easy to fix!!


The Relaxation Mineral

Think of magnesium as the relaxation mineral. It is a great antidote to stress, helping improve anything tight, cramping or stiff - whether part of the body or mood, and can help improve sleep.

Magnesium is actually responsible for over 300 enzyme reactions and is found in all body tissue — but mainly in your bones, muscles, and brain. It is a vital mineral in order for your cells to make energy, for many different chemical pumps to work, to stabilise membranes, and to help relax muscles.

When was the last time you had a good dose of seaweed, nuts, greens, and beans? If you are like most westerners, your nut consumption mostly comes from peanut butter.

That is why the list of conditions that are found relating to magnesium deficiency is so long. In fact, there are over 3,500 medical references on magnesium deficiency!


Stop Draining Your Body of Magnesium

• Limit coffee, colas, salt, sugar, and alcohol intake
• Limit processed foods
• Learn how to practice active relaxation, (tensing then relaxing different muscles)
• Check with your doctor if your medication is causing magnesium loss (many high blood pressure drugs or diuretics cause a loss of magnesium)


Adding Magnesium into your body

Include the following in your diet as often as you can:

Kelp, wheat bran, wheat germ, almonds, cashews, buckwheat, Brazil nuts, dulse, filberts, millet, pecans, walnuts, rye, tofu, soy beans, brown rice, figs, dates, collard greens, shrimp, avocado, parsley, beans, barley, dandelion greens, and garlic.

Use MagnesiumLife Transdermal Magnesium Chloride to Raise your levels safely and effectively.

Use other supplements such as tablets or liquid form which can be added to your diet.

Due to the fact that magnesium is often hard to absorb into the body, due to low vitamin D, poor gut bacteria and a number of other conditions, it is recommended to include a magnesium supplement into your diet, as increasing your levels by food alone is often difficult. Transdermal supplementation is deemed one of the best forms of supplementation.

A recent scientific review of magnesium concluded, “It is highly regrettable that the deficiency of such an inexpensive, low-toxicity nutrient results in diseases that cause incalculable suffering and expense throughout the world.” I couldn't have said it better myself!

Practicing Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture I see a lot of patients with long term tension in muscles that eventually affect correct posture and healthy muscle function causing pain. The most common cause being excess calcium in the muscle causing contraction and deficient magnesium required to release the muscle. Without correct supplementation treatments can only be a temporary fix. I recommend to my patients to use undiluted transdermal Magnesium Chloride spray from Magnesium LIfe to maintain muscle health and alleviate pain.

As a holistic health practitioner I recommend that people get their nutrition right before even thinking of supplements, as most have more marketing qualities than actual benefits to our bodies. There are some specific conditions though for which I recommend people who are low in magnesium undergo a magnesium replenishment protocol. This makes use of daily magnesium chloride salt baths and the topical use of transdermal magnesium. In these cases where i recommend a supplement I will still only recommend using the most organic and purest forms, and as far as magnesium goes the best I have found is MagnesiumLife as it comes from a very clean source and is also the only one I have found that is not watered down, something that is evident when you pick up a bottle and feel the density of it. For the everyday person who does not have access to a practitioner who can prescribe these measures, using MagnesiumLife spray at home is in my opinion the best you can do from a supplement/product perspective.

As a holistic dentist I understand the importance of not only good quality supplements, but also the bioavailability of those supplements. When it comes to Magnesium supplementation, I recommend taking magnesium transdermally. Our skin is our largest organ and applying magnesium on our skin is in my opinion a more effective way of absorbing this vitally important mineral. I recommend MagnesiumLife magnesium supplements to all of my patients.

I took magnesium spray away with me on holiday and for as many days as I could I sprayed myself with it... I really felt it helped me to stay balanced and vital. My body loved it!
Fiona Bond Exercise Physiologist
I purchased a bottle of magnesium chloride oil from the local Motueka Markets, 6 or 7 weeks agao (28/11/2010) after talking to the lovely lady selling it. I broke my shoulder a year ago and still have restricted movements and varying levels of pain so this was one of the reasons for buying the oil. I had great results, although when I first started I had to be careful where I sprayed it as I do have sensitve skin but now can pretty much spray most places. My shoulder feels heaps better and if I have pain I spray some on and the pain subsides, it's amazing. I have recurrent bladder infections and tummy problems, since with the oil I haven't had an infection or tummy pain, if I feel the tell-tale discomfort and it disappears. I am doing quite a bit of bike riding and had been getting a lot of cramp in my calmes but spray the oil on my calmes before bed and NO cramp. My knees also have had a bit of pain but that too cleared up. I personally recommend it. Thank you magnesium chloride...

I had a car accident over ten years ago and have never been able to fully turn my neck since. I started using the Magnesium Oil on my neck and after only a few applications I am able to turn my neck again. I am so grateful to have found this product and think everyone should use it. It really has made a huge difference to the way I feel. Thank you for introducing me to this wonderful mineral...
Sandy Gold Coast, Australia
I recently came across the Magnesium Life chloride Oil at the Gold Coast Craft Markets. I was very interested in this product and decided to buy some. I went home and spray it on after my nightly shower and was very surprised when my body tingled all over, as you told me if my uric acid levels were high this would occur. After experiencing the tingling release all over my body I felt the deepest sense of relaxation I have ever felt in my body. I could not believe how fast it works! I have now been using the product for well over a month and now maintain my magnesium levels every two or three days as it no longer tingles but I feel like a weight has been lifted off me and my energy levels are building up. Thank you for your knowledge, you have turned my life around!...

I was booked into have a hip replacement but I have been using Magnesium Chloride Oil liberally all over my body and have been so relieved with the amount of flexibility and relief I have been getting that I decided to cancel my hip replacement. I am also using MSM powder daily with citric acid and feel that this has made an amazing difference. Thanks to Magnesium Oil my health is changing for the better...
Barbara Woolongong, Australia
Dear Sara, Many thanks for your most interesting talk to our group last month. It has been very remiss of me not to congratulate you earlier as I have had such positive feedback from those who attended. With our next meeting upon us this Friday I now remember that I said that I would contact you and ask you for the Chicken Soup Recipe that you mentioned is very beneficial for those living with IBS. if you can spare the time I would love to receive the recipe so that I can print a copy out for the members. I am also looking forward to feedback from those who have used the magnesium regularly and will keep you updated. Thank you...
