Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for June 30, 2006

Two symptoms that I have had for years are related to a Magnesium deficiency: Sensitivity to bright lights and weak knees.

Reasons Your Brain Needs Magnesium

#1 Your brain needs magnesium to build the protective myelin sheaths that insulate the nerve fibers which network your nervous system.

#2 Magnesium activates a key enzyme in cell membranes that controls the balance of sodium and potassium. This is absolutely essential to the electrical activity of nerve cells, as well as to the very existence of a cell. If its sodium-potassium ratio got too far out of balance, the cell would burst.

#3 Magnesium activates glutamine synthetase, an enzyme responsible for converting waste ammonia – an extremely toxic byproduct of normal protein metabolism – into urea for proper disposal. The ability to focus and pay attention can be compromised by even small increases in brain ammonia.

#4 Magnesium activates almost all the key enzymes needed for your neurons to produce energy from glucose, in the form of ATP molecules. Magnesium is also necessary for the stable storage of ATP, so it won’t spontaneously break down and waste its energy as heat.

#5 Of the 300+ different enzymes in the human body that require magnesium to function, a great many are crucial to cerebral metabolism and cognitive function. In the cerebrospinal fluid that bathes the brain and spinal cord, magnesium is present in higher concentrations than in the blood plasma.

#6 Magnesium is needed to activate the enzyme (D6D) that converts dietary fatty acids into DHA, the most abundant fatty acid in brain cell membranes. Deficiencies in DHA have been associated with numerous neurological disorders – from attention-deficits to Alzheimer’s disease

Here’s another web site:

Magnesium is the central atom in the chlorophyll molecule and in physiology it activates the ATP energy system. More than 300 enzymes require the presence of this mineral. Seventy percent of the body’s magnesium is found in the bones, and the rest is found mainly in the soft tissues and blood. There is more magnesium than calcium in muscle tissue and the brain has twice as much magnesium as any other tissue.

Every person, every doctor that I’ve mentioned my health history to has commented on the fact that I have done a tremendous amount of research to try and figure out my symptoms and the more deeper I get, the more I realize how I’ve only scratched the surface and looking back, I wish I’d done a better job.

I think if I was a doctor, I’d hire a research assistant to google symptoms for me. Actually, it’s more like an investigative researcher.

My iridology exam is tomorrow and I can’t wait. Hopefully, it’s the beginning of the end.

And then I skip ahead in the book and come across a chapter called ” The Brain and Nerves” on page 158. This sounds like the chapter for me:

The brain and nerves are the most highly-evolved tissues in the human body, designed to send and receive the electromagnetic vibrations that direct all the physiological functions of the body and allow man to creatively adapt to and alter his environment.

Each organ and tissue structure of the body is connected via the nervous system to a specialized part of the brain that directs it’s function. Thus we have a “heart brain”, a “kidney brain”,  a “stomach brain”, and so forth and electromagnetic messages contantly pass back and forth along the autonomic nerves, telling the brain the state of each organ and tissue area. The brain responds by instructing the organ to adjust itself, not only in accordance with what is going on in that organ alone, but in consideration of the needs of all other organs and tissues in the body. No single organ or tissue can be treated in isolation.

Could this have been why it had such an effect on me? Having an electromagnetic device beside my head would certainly appear to have an effect on the normal communicating function of the brain. Would a doctor tell me this? Not a chance.

Iridology is facinating. I’m really enjoying the book by Doctor Jensen. Here are some paragraphs from his book Beyond Basic Health:

PAGE 11

The Balanced Diet:

  1. Pure natural foods
  2. 6 vegetables, 2 fruits, 1 starch & 1 protein
  3. Foods should be 80% alkaline and 20% acid
  4. Variety of foods
  5. 60% raw foods
  6. Avoid overeating
  7. Avoid deficiencies in food regimen

—————————————————————————————————————

PAGE 37

When we find one degenerative stage in an organ, there are usually other organs that have developed degenerative conditions as well. People seldom die from one disease. There is no condition that cannot be found in the iris that doesn’t also have inherent weaknesses, toxic settlements, and mineral deficiencies. Every underactive organ tends to drag down the rest of the body.

—————————————————————————————————————

PAGE 53

Today, very few doctors practice preventive health care, but I would not advise going to any other kind. The doctor who is interested in keeping you well is of greater value than the doctor who says he can’t do anything until you are sick.

What kind of profession is it that thrives and grows wealthy on sickness and disease, but shows so little interest in maintaining health?

—————————————————————————————————————

PAGE 70

Unfortunatley, very few mothers know how to feed children properly. They don’t know that the formulas they use are synthetic foods, not real food and may cause diabetic tendencies in later years.

—————————————————————————————————————

PAGE 82

Every disease is a sign of a chemical shortage in the body. All of these chemical elements are in our foods but we don’t know what a proper diet is.

—————————————————————————————————————

PAGE 84

If our patients do not improve, we are not using the right foods to treat them. Diseases are the end result of chemically deficient organs in the body that are not functioning properly. For example: We may have different diseases produced when the liver, bronchial tubes and stomach are not working normally together. We have another type of disease entirely when the kidneys, lungs and small intestines are not working together properly.

I didn’t eat any of the high fibre cereal yesterday and today I’m feeling better with no stomach cramps. So if I am deficient in magnesium, why have I been okay taking high doses of B Complex suppliments for such a long time without any magnesium?

Higher amounts of Vitamin B6 will also increase magnesium retention, although this only takes place following long-term oral supplementation, while regular Vitamin B6 injections will quickly result in a high magnesium / low calcium ratio.

WOW! B6 will increase magnesium retention following long-term oral supplementation. Could this be why my symptoms are not really improving? I’ve been trying to have wheatgrass which is high in magnesium at least once, sometimes twice a week along with high doses of B6. I’ve also been drinking two litres of water every day.
