Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for August 25, 2006


Came across two interesting things today from Doctor Google:

  • Boron is essential for proper magnesium metabolism.
  • Thiamine may be critical for magnesium metabolism and possibly selenium metabolism.

Could it be possible that the reason Benfotamine has such an effect was due to the connection with magnesium? I’ve also come across something called Coenzyme Q10. Here’s what I found:

Coenzyme Q10 is a substance naturally produced by the body, but is also contained in all plant and animal foods. This coenzyme is also known as ubiquinone. Coenzyme Q10 is an essential component of the body’s process that makes the energy molecule, also known as adenosine triphosphate (ATP), from the food we eat. If coenzyme Q10 levels are compromised so is the ability of the body to make energy. All body processes depend on energy and so, ultimately, does good health. CoenzymeQ10 has also been shown to possess antioxidant properties. Both coenzyme Q10 and the mineral magnesium are key nutrients in the production process that yields the energy molecule, known as ATP (adenosine triphosphate).

Found this review on Amazon regarding a book on Mitral Valve Prolapse called “Natural Therapies for Mitral Valve Prolapse.”

“My wife suffered from mitral valve prolapse for several years until we discovered the many healing benefits of appropriate nutrient supplementation. Now that we take chelated magnesium and coenzyme Q10 daily for heart health, her MVP symptoms have disappeared. Anyone wishing verification of the role of magnesium in mitigating the symptoms of mitral valve prolapse can find it discussed in Dr. Carolyn Dean’s excellent book The Miracle of Magnesium. Another excellent book which also discusses the role of supplemental magnesium in relieving MVP is The Magnesium Factor by Dr. Mildred Seelig.”

I decide to see if I can contact David to find out what the dosage was for magenesium and Q10. I’m also curious to find out how long it took. I click on his profile to get his email address and it says he’s a retired research chemist! He may be the perfect person to talk to so I send him an email.

In the meantime, I’ll need to do some more research on the magnesium metabolism…
