Magnesium as a Pain Reliever

8 March 2021

Magnesium is a remarkably effective way to treat pain and stress, without any of the side-effects of pharmaceutical drugs. People from different cultures all over the world have understood this for millennia: very often, you will find that traditional cures for pain have one thing in common, which is that they have a high magnesium content.

Why Magnesium?

In a world obsessed with patenting new medicines, we tend to lose sight of highly effective remedies that are readily available and cost next to nothing. Magnesium is undoubtedly a case in point. It is easy to source magnesium in our natural environment, and science has proven its remarkable efficacy as a pain reliever. What’s more, clinical evidence suggests that mild magnesium deficiency is widespread in humans. We need magnesium for optimal health, and many of us do not have enough of it in our body.

How does magnesium work?

It works in a very simple way: by relaxing you. To be precise, magnesium can be found on the synapses between neurons, where they act like a guard against elements like calcium and glutamate that excite neurotransmitters in our central nervous system. If we do not have enough magnesium in our body, we are more vulnerable to toxic stress that can actually damage the neurons, causing permanent damage. Magnesium also has the ability to slow down the release of ACTH, which is the hormone that directs your adrenal glands to produce adrenaline and cortisol. 

When you are experiencing stress, you’ll know that your heart starts beating more rapidly and your skin flushes. Your body is speeding up so that you can protect yourself from danger. However, in the modern world we are rarely in a situation where we have to run away from predators to protect our lives. The things that cause us stress and anxiety are more likely to be long-term and difficult to remove from our lives, like a demanding boss or worries about our finances. We cannot afford to flood our bodies with adrenaline day in and night out. Eventually we feel depleted and depressed. Magnesium is one of the safest, most effective ways to reduce chronic stress.

How do I naturally increase my bodies magnesium levels?

You do not need to ingest magnesium to enjoy its health benefits. Magnesium can be absorbed naturally through the skin. Immersing yourself in a relaxing mineral pool can help replenish your magnesium levels and reduce stress. When the body is under less strain, we also experience a significant reduction in pain. Magnesium is so effective as a pain reliever that some doctors use it in the emergency room. Combine the absorption of magnesium with a relaxing swim in a sparkling clean, clear odourless mineral pool, and you have one of the best recipes for natural relief from anxiety and pain.
