Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for July 05, 2006

Today I tried a little experiment. I didn’t take any vitamins all day and I have no symptoms whatsoever. No acidophilus, no vitamin C, no B vitamins and NO SYMPTOMS.

What does this mean? There is something else going on and I still think it’s magnesium. The order of my symptoms was the internal vibration, then the plantar fasciitis then all other symptoms. So when you look at it in that order, it was the nervous system, muscle weakness and or poor circulation then the lack of hydrochloric acid. I think the magnesium deficiency caused a number of  B deficiencies complicating the symptoms and diagnosis.

And the two foods that will stop the vibrations (Pears and Tuna) both contain magnesium. Why does the vitamin C work? Apparently it helps make magnesium more biologically available to your body.

This morning as I was getting my daily newspaper I notice that they are sold out. So I grab a free health magazine called “Your Health Source” and on page 14 is an article called “Magnesium, Are you getting enough?”. It was a very interesting article and I really didn’t find anything paticular that applied to me but I google away to find out more information.

Magnesium Deficiency

Blood tests for magnesium deficiency are irrelevant and unusable. These levels do not reflect total body magnesium (TBM). Magnesium levels of bone and intracellular levels of magnesium are what tell the true status of TBM.

Recommended Dietary Allowance

To compensate for deficiencies and/or losses the new RDA is expected to be 500 mg. per day. My RDA is a total of 500-700 mg magnesium daily.

Formula to Calculate Magnesium Daily Requirement

5 to 10 milligrams per day per kilo of ideal body weight or 2.5 to 4.5 milligrams per day per pound of ideal body weight.  

The medical community repletes magnesium by giving 400 mg of oxide, sulphate or gluconate 4-6 times a day. At this level diarrhea becomes a problem and a loose stool depletes magnesium and other electrolytes quickly. Albion Labs chelated magnesium is designed to delivery magnesium without diarrhea. Even when using the Albion chelate a loose stool can still be a problem under special circumstances. You should discontinue magnesium if your stool becomes soft or un-formed. 

If your stool becomes loose it does not mean you have adequate magnesium. You may need to do a series of experiments with different types, timing (with and without food; 2,3 or 4 times a day) and/or amounts (100-200 mg. per dose, try the higher first and the lower if you encounter a problem). You may need more than the daily requirement initially to get expected results.

Try to keep all doses at not more than 300-400 mg. each. 100-200 mg at a time work more efficiently. Some clients have experienced sleep difficulties when taking magnesium late in the day as magnesium can contribute to energy. If this happens to you confine your supplementation to earlier hours.

Be patient as many systems, muscles, bone, immune system, nerve system and brain, will begin to change with magnesium supplementation. Depending on your current condition it may take six months for you to see all of the positive changes.

My weight from yesterday was 186 lbs.

186 * 2.5 = 465
186 * 4.5 = 837

So my daily dosage should be between 465 mg and 837 mg.
