So I knew for sometime that I need to get more Magnesium in my food which is why I was eating dark chocolate, spinach and almonds almost every day. Even though these are by far the best sources of Mg, it turns out that they are not enough, in other words we can not get all of the required Mg from the food, we should get the rest , get this , from the seawater. Even more importantly , we need just as much Mg as we have Calcium if not more but in our diet, Calcium is much more prevalent about 3 times.Mg is poorly absorbed orally as well.
Mg is basically antidote to Ca and when there is not enough of it , Ca runs wild , constricting arteries, making body more rigid and so on. That's where Magnesium Oil comes in, it's basically magnesium mineral extracted from sea water that you would apply on the skin and it gets absorbed about 20-30 minutes after. This is called Magnesium Chloride. It's a very alkalizing mineral so when it meets any toxins on the skin as in psoriasis plaques, it starts to work, it starts this burning sensation which is rather relaxing than painful at least for me. . The burning sensation really makes me think it works . So this is where I first read about this transdermal Magnesium/Magnesium Oil/Magnesium Chloride.
Psoriasis is but one thing that can happen when not enough oxygen gets into the blood cells. Oxygen is delivered through respiratory function, and through hydration. In addition to life itself, our health is dependent on sufficient quantities of oxygen being delivered to each cell.
When oxygen levels decrease, the body chemistry becomes more acidic, and turns it into a breeding ground for anaerobic organisms. The bad bacteria so often connected with any disease condition, are anaerobic. They not only dont need oxygen, they are intolerant of it. They are drawn toward necrotic tissue whose cells have died. They in fact, serve a beneficial purpose, as they will remove diseased or dead tissue from the body. That is, until their numbers are out of balance.
Psoriasis is but one result of what happens when the body is not in chemical balance, which occurs as a result of chronic deficiency in certain minerals, magnesium being a key one. Toxin build up, and toxic medical treatments, all contribute to the further lowering of body pH from its natural alkaline level of 7.3-7.4, into the acidic range. All necrotic tissue will have an acidic pH.
The absence of enough magnesium allows calcium to run amok. Dermatological evidence of this process is excessive skin production, which we label as psoriasis, and think of as having a unique pathogenesis. The pathogenesis is not unique; how it is expressed, is.
Im not claiming any of this to be definitive. You are free to refute or reject any part that doesnt resonate as true to you. It simply makes sense to me. Knowing what I now know, heres what Id do about
Alkalize the body with nutrients, particularly magnesium. However, depending on where the outbreak is located, applying ocean-derived magnesium chloride, may be a problem at first because when it encounters toxins, the effect can be itching or a burning sensation. However, the nutrients are still needed. So Id suggest foot baths with magnesium oil, or rubbing it on in areas that are outbreak free.
