Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for January 07, 2007

The other day I saw a multivitamin and I always like to look at the contents and dosages. This “Complete” multivitamin had 500 mg of calcium but no magnesium. That’s just crazy! All vitamins and minerals are NOT created equal.

THE CALCIUM PROBLEM

Excess calcium is a vastly widespread problem, as excess calcium DEPLETES magnesium from the body, and as a result brings about all of the symptoms of magnesium deficiency. At this point, it will be unimportant how much magnesium you consumed, but how much is left in your body. If you feel your body is out of balance and isn’t functioning right (with some symptoms manifesting), I would suspect excess calcium especially if you have been supplementing it.

Remember. Calcium and magnesium need to be in the correct proportions for your own needs. otherwise the calcium turns from a nutrient into a pollutant causing heart disease. arthritis. hardening of the arteries, senility, osteoporosis and calcification of organs and tissues that eventually completely degenerate.

For this very reason excess calcium can become a real problem, while excess magnesium, on the other hand, is not of any concern. Unlike calcium, magnesium does not build up in the body, as excess is eliminated.

Take the following example: What country has the highest rate of pasteurized milk consumption? That’s right: America. Now, what country has the highest rate of consuming calcium supplements? Correct again: America. So, America must have the lowest occurrence of osteoporosis (calcium loss & bone fragility) of all countries? Right?.. Wrong! We have the highest rate! Why? Excess calcium combined with low magnesium. A lethal combination indeed.

Taking more calcium will not fix a calcium deficiency, which is quite evident from the statistics. It is magnesium that will handle the calcium deficiency as well as the magnesium deficiency itself (it will dissolve any excess calcium from the body, while helping any needed calcium to assimilate).

I’ve been doing some research on candida lately and I came across a web site that suggests taking garlic throughout the day with yogurt that contains bacterial culture. So we went shopping today and I picked some up.

Time to REGROUP.

I really need to summarize my observations, review my successes and list my outstanding symptoms.

1) The first thing I need to do is to use iridology to see if there is any change since the last set of photos. It’s been six months since the last time so there should be some changes. I’ve been taking a great multivitamin and a higher dose of magnesium so I would expect to see some improvement because the vibration is not as strong as it used to be.

2) I really need to go through the entire blog again to see if anything I’ve discovered in the past is relevant now that I have overlooked at the time. I’d like to look at the deficiencies that I know for sure: Magnesium, vitamin A, Niacin, Riboflavin and vitamin E to see if I can find a common ground to the cause.

3) I need to find a list of factors that contribute to Magnesium loss and investigate the symptoms of each one.

4) Make a list of vitamins and minerals that are destroyed by high sugar intake.

Since I’ve had such great results with the magnesium from Nu Life, I’ve been thinking for a while now of trying the Nu Life Multivitamin. I take a look at the ingredients and I’m totaly amazed. For every mineral they use the same formula as my magnesium: (Citrate, Malate, Fumarate, Succinate, Glutarate) plus it contains the active form of B2 and B6. WOW!

I’ll start by taking one twice a day. With the move coming up next week, this stuff could be what I need.

I’ve tried so many different brands of vitamins but this company seems to be the highest quality. By doctor actually recommended taking Centrum. Centrum’s formula next to Nu life is a joke by comparision. Centrum uses Magnesium Oxide… Enough said.

Previous Night Vibration Status: Extremely Weak
Morning Vibration Status: Normal Vibration

I was expecting the vibration to be stronger this morning… I took a multivitamin before going to bed and it had calcium. It was in the same amount as magnesium so I thought I would try it.

If one multivitamin has this much effect on the vibration, I think that’s a clear indication of how defcient I am in magnesium.

Picked up the multi-vitamin today from SISU. Even the multi contains the high grade formula of B2 & B6. The advantage now is that the dosage is only 10 mg and 1 mg respectfully so I’ll be able to take it three times a day for better absorption without getting too much. I take one with my dinner.

Suggested Adult Dosage: 2 capsules daily with meals.

Each capsule contains:

Vitamin A (palmitate) 4,000 IU
Vitamin E 80 IU (dl-alpha tocopherol acetate)
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) 50 mg
Thiamine hydrochloride 20 mg (Vitamin B1)
Riboflavin-5’-phosphate (B2) 10 mg
Niacinamide (B3) 10 mg
Pantothenic acid 100 mg (B5 – D-calcium pantothenate)
Pyridoxine hydrochloride (B6) 30 mg
Pyridoxine 1 mg (pyridoxal-5’-phosphate)
Cobalamin (B12) 160 mcg
Folic Acid 0.06 mg
Biotin 80 mcg
Magnesium (oxide) 50 mg
Potassium (chloride) 20 mg
Manganese (sulfate) 3 mg
Zinc (sulfate) 6 mg
Selenium (selenite) 40 mcg
Molybdenum (molybdate) 40 mcg
Chromium (HVP* chelate) 80 mcg *HVP=hydrolyzed vegetable (rice) protein
Iron (ferric ammonium citrate) 4 mg
Para Aminobenzoic Acid 40 mg
Glutamic acid 40 mg

What are the ingredients in Multi-Vi-Min?

Vitamin A: Most of our organs require vitamin A for healthy function, especially the eyes and reproductive system. Deficiency can depress the immune response, which can improve with supplementation.

B Vitamins: B vitamins work together in the support of many bodily systems and are important to cardiovascular, nervous system, gastrointestinal, skin and mental health to name a few.

Vitamin C: Immune response is comprised of a complex network of multiple actions, reactions and interactions. Vitamin C is known primarily as an immune booster because it enhances virtually every aspect of immune function. It is also a potent antioxidant as well as an anti-viral and antibacterial agent.

Vitamin E: Another powerful antioxidant, Vitamin E is important in cardiovascular, nervous system and immune function. It works synergistically with other antioxidants, including Vitamin C and selenium, and plays a role in protecting the body against such toxins such as lead, mercury and other heavy metals, environ-mental pollutants, compounds such as benzene, carbon tetrachloride and cleaning solvents, as well as drugs and radiation.

Biotin: Deficiency is associated with baldness, fatigue, insomnia, muscle pain and weakness.

Magnesium: Calcium and magnesium together are essential to heart health. Magnesium works closely with potassium, which is also vital to heart health. Magnesium also can help regulate blood pressure.

Potassium: Linked with heart health, potassium supplements have been shown to lower blood pressure. However, potassium should always be taken together with magnesium, as the two work synergistically.

Manganese: Supports bone formation and glucose metabolism, and enhances natural killer cell activity.

Zinc: Deficiency can impair immune function, male fertility and wound healing, and can contribute to eczema and acne.

Selenium: Another antioxidant, selenium works synergistically with Vitamin E. Deficiency can impair growth, immune function and pancreatic function.

Molybdenum: This trace mineral may help the body detoxify sulfites, which are used to preserve many foods and have been linked to allergic reactions.

Chromium: This mineral is essential to glucose metabolism. In fact, glucose intolerance is one of the first signs of chromium deficiency. High blood glucose can impair immune function. Supplementation can improve glucose tolerance.

Iron: Iron deficiency is the most common nutrient deficiency in North America which can cause anemia and impaired immune function.

Para aminobenzoic acid: Deficiency is associated with fatigue, constipation, headaches and irritability.

Glutamic acid: A metabolite of the amino acid glutamine. Deficiency has been linked with depressed immune function.

Here is a picture taken on June 19th, 2004.

 For years now I’ve had chapped lips and nothing seems to work to heel it. This is not something new and I have tried drinking more water and different kinds of lip balm and nothing ever worked. On every acupuncture appoinment, the doctor would look at my lips and ask me if I was drinking enough water and everytime I would answer two litres a day. She thought it was strange that after ten weeks of drinking two litres that it was still very visible.

Occasionally I would also have red, itchy eyes and they have always been sensitive to light. If I forget my sunglasses on a sunny day, I’ll go back inside the house to get them. Usually I thought it was my allergies or lack of sleep and I would use allergy eye drops and go about my day. Then I came across something very interesting today:

Riboflavin Deficiency Symptoms:

  • swelling and fissuring of the lips (cheilosis)
  • ulceration and cracking of the angles of the mouth (angular stomatitisis)
  • oily, scaly skin rashes on the scrotum, vulva, or area between the nose and lips
  • inflammation of the tongue
  • red, itchy eyes that are sensitive to light

The nervous symptoms of riboflavin deficiency include:

  • Numbness of the hands
  • Decreased sensitivity to touch, temperature, and vibration

Riboflavin deficiency includes a nervous symptom of a vibration??? Holy cow! Again, Doctor Google is light years ahead of mainstream healthcare. Seems a vibration is quite common within vitamin deficiencies. Every doctor I’ve mentioned the vibration to looks at me like I’m a raving lunatic.

Another web site says that with a B2 deficiency, the cheilosis occurs in the middle of the bottom lip. Right were I happen to have one. Will have to do some more research…

Wasn’t vibrating when I went to bed but I was when I woke up. This has been happening a lot lately. On my way home from work I dropped into the health food store and picked up a multivitamin that I used to take along with a 100 mg B2 suppliment and take them both with my dinner. Tonight was my last dose of the chinese herb for my sinuses.

I was reading about how taking a multivitamin is best for the body because it can provide a wide variety of minerals and that allows the body to take what it needs and discard the rest.

I am still not eating any microwaveable food and I’m not sure if it’s had any effect for not. I guess I’m not patient enough and should probably try it for a couple of months but it is actually quite hard to keep up.
