|Now Magnesium Citrate|
I have been taking magnesium to help with an annoying eye twitch and a few other things. Lately I've had some trouble taking the magnesium citrate so I stopped taking it for a while. Sure enough the annoying eye twitch came back. I found this at WestonAPrice.org:
When excess calcium enters the cells because of insufficient magnesium, muscle contraction is sustained for too long, and we suffer, for example, twitches and tics in mild cases. When magnesium deficiency becomes chronic, we suffer the symptoms of heart disease such as angina pectoris, hypertension and arrhythmia, or the spasms and contractions characteristic of asthma, migraine headache or painful menstrual cramping.
A long time ago I bought some magnesium oil spray. It burns burns burns when I put it on so I hadn't been using it (doesn't burn my husband or son when they use it.) When the magnesium citrate stopped working I decided to tough out the burn because it seemed like a better alternative than the eye twitch.
It was burning so bad that I wiped the spray off. Shortly after that my eye stopped twitching. This revelation is FREAKING ME OUT!!! I just cannot believe that by spraying on the magnesium oil and wiping it off a few minutes later could help the eye twitch, but I've tried it repeatedly and over and over again I have the same results.
I always thought "those weird people" that claimed we are ingesting what we put on our skin were crazy. I thought they just wanted me to buy their products...ummmm I may have to rethink my position on this. CRAZY!!!
