Re: Mg to overcome longstanding "candida"??

Hi, Marj.

I do not think anyone has linked magnesium to candida although we still know so litle about that.

How have you been doing with your SR?

I wouldn't think the magnesium would be directly related to the candida. plus, I wouldn't trust the blood magesium test. Very few doctors really know how to interpret these tests. I was told that I had a high level of magnesium in my blood and was advised against magnesium supplements. Now, this may be the right move but for the wrong reason. Usually, when a vitamin or mineral is high in the blood, it is usally low in the cells which means it is not being absorbed properly so her result that says the magesium is normal may or may not mean anything. It's the same in people who are found to be anemic. The doctor may give this person iron supplents not realizing that this person is getting plenty of iron. It is that they are not abosrbing it properly (the condition is called iron-poor anemia for anyone who is interested). If she had a magnesium deficiency and it were bad enough, I would imagine she would have terrible muscle and joint aches too which I don't hear. I would implicate low seratonin, poor endocrine function or low hormones in sleep problems rather than low magsesium unless the sleep difficulty is caused by pain. Then, I would agree on that. DOC ?

Hi, Rich.

IF it was a serum magnesium I agree with you (The doc had no idea what he was ordering.) During this early transition of our understanding even the intracellular magnesium might not tell what the individual actually needs since standards are still not well established and individual needs are very "individual".

SO, the best way is still using the bodymind as the best laboratory. Since it is hard to take too much magnesium, a trial dosage for a few weeks is what is the most accurate.

Maybe in the future, this type of "individualized" testing might be available. This would be a great step. But for now, SR is best!! Nmi
