How Can A Parasite Possibly Live In My Body And I Don’t Even Know It Is There?

How can a parasite possibly live in my body and I don’t even know it is there? The answer to this is simple. The purpose of a parasitical organism is to not make itself known. A smart invader lives without being detected because if it is detected, of course, something is going to be done to eradicate it. If you think these organisms are stupid, think again. They are highly intelligent invaders. Not intelligent in the same way humans are, but they are intelligent in their ability to survive and reproduce, which is of course, the purpose of any life form on the planet.

Harmful organisms live everywhere and are commonly transmitted to humans in diverse ways, such as insect bites, walking barefoot, handling objects, human contact, animal contact, water, fruits & vegetables, eating under-cooked meats and fish, and numerous other ways. Government inspectors simply do not inspect most of the animals that go through the slaughterhouse, but rather a sampling is done. What about salads, or even raw fruits and vegetables? Eating raw foods always increases the risk of invaders. According to the Center of Disease Control (CDC), illnesses linked with fruits and vegetables are on the rise. One reason could be the increased demand for fresh produce. We now import 30 billion tons of food a year into this country. Some of the produce comes from developing nations where sanitation facilities are less advanced or they commonly practice the use of human feces as fertilizer (night soil). The further products travel, the more likely they will pick up illness-causing microbes. It also increases the chance of being contaminated by infected food handlers. Food handlers have been in the news lately because of their role in the spread of parasites. Some people who prepare food, as well as the general population do not wash their hands after going to the bathroom. When you consider that many of the unhealthy organisms are spread by fecal-oral contact, this lack of personal hygiene may be one of the more common factors in the spread of these invaders. Consider everything that you touch that is handled by others; money, shopping carts, door handles, menus, salt shakers, and everything else — the possibilities for contamination are enormous.

In spite of some efforts to control parasites, their global impact has not been appreciably reduced for a variety of reasons. Why are parasitic infections among the world’s greatest neglected situation? The illusion is that it simply can’t be happening… because no one is really talking about it. You don’t hear the newspapers and television stations reporting it enough. You don’t see people asking for larger donations to research the effects of invading organisms. When a topic is rarely discussed, who is going to take it seriously?

Funding is very low for any research into this area, even if harmful organisms are the considered by some health professionals to be the single most undiagnosed health challenge in the history of the human race. We potentially have a tremendous parasite problem right here in the United States, even if it is not being properly addressed. It takes an informed person to take charge of the health of their own body. Research the facts and with an adequate cleansing regime, the effects of exposure and the continued reinfection prevalent in the course of our lifetimes, can be minimized and brought under control – resulting in perhaps reduced illness and disease in our lives.

Almost everyone has parasites. It’s simply a fact of life. Even Dr. Oz, the now famous Oprah Winfrey guest says…”ninety percent of humans will have a problem with parasites in their lifetime.” Parasites are not just something that other people get in developing countries. Everywhere we go, during just about everything we do, North Americans are potentially vulnerable to parasitic infestation.

If you are not convinced that intestinal parasites are real, check out the recent image of Oprah and Dr. Oz holding “wormzilla,” a human intestinal tapeworm.

A parasite is an organism that lives off the life force of another organism, such as an animal or a human. Parasites eat Blog parasites1the food that we eat, excrete in our system, and can also travel throughout our body. While there are over 3000 varieties of parasites, they basically fall into two major groups: protozoa and worms. Protozoa are single-celled parasites. When ingested, they germinate, reproduce and can cause havoc within our bodies. Worms come in all sizes, from thread worms, measuring less than one centimeter, to tapeworms up to 12 meters in length. Once inside our bodies, their presence could greatly add to the degradation of our overall health.

If you are like most people, you will be surprised and at the same time horrified as you witness the results. The thought that other life forms are living inside of our bodies sounds more a science fiction movie, but the reality of the fact is that for most people, a myriad of parasitical creatures call our bodies (and our pet’s bodies) home.  blog worm with ruler pic

Some people call parasites the “great masqueraders”. Many types are so well adapted to living in their human host that no obvious symptoms are presented. When you last saw your physician for an illness, did anyone ask you what you ate or if you had a preference for rare steak? Did they ask you about your recent travel plans to other countries? Did anyone event hint that the real cause of your health challenges might be related to parasites? According to the American Medical Association, physicians only correctly diagnose a disease 16 percent of the time; that’s one out of six. The average medical laboratory is lucky to correctly diagnose specific parasites 20 percent of the time. Is there any wonder a physician might not connect symptoms, especially vague ones, to parasites?

The longer a parasites is in the human body, the more likely there will be some damage, depending upon the target site of infection. If the parasite is in the intestinal tract, one of the things that the body will do is to produce more mucus to protect the intestinal cells. Unfortunately, this coating interferes with digestion, leading to the mal-absorption of important nutrients, particularly fats and fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamins A and E. As the parasites continue to flourish, they take more nutrition and leave us malnourished.

Part of detecting the presence of a parasite in the body is being able to read the body’s signals and how to interpretblog parasites2 them. Maybe you have not been paying enough attention to your symptoms, or you think that something else is causing the problem. It is amazing that so many people think that having chronic problems and other “vague” symptoms are just something you have to live with. Parasitic-related symptoms can come from anywhere in the body because they can reside almost anywhere. No organ or tissue is immune from possible infestation or from their toxic waste products.

ABC World News Tonight reported: “Most health problems are caused by unhealthy organisms”. In numerous studies the alarming report has been revealed that this problem is more prevalent than many had anticipated. In response to this news, many informed individuals and health care practitioners have been utilizing the age-old usage of herbal solutions to combat this threat.

blog parasites intestines real picThere are hundreds of species of parasites, yet today’s common medical screening procedures normally only test to identify only a few! There are two major categories of parasites: large parasites, which are primarily worms, and small parasites. Because of their microscopic size, they can burrow into the muscle, bones, or joints. Some of them may feed off the calcium linings of the bones or even the protein coating on your nerves, which can disrupt the nerve impulses to the brain. Parasites also secrete toxins, generating toxic build-up and stressing the immune system.

Check out this report…

Potentially Lethal Tapeworms Increasing Along Border

Monday, October 25, 1999

Associated Press – Parasite, which lodges in brain, blamed on poor sanitation by food handlers and more immigration.
McALLEN – Doctors in South Texas say they’re seeing more cases of a parasite that burrows into the human brain, sometimes resulting in seizures or even death.

Health officials say the increase is probably due to failure of food handlers to wash their hands after going to the bathroom. They believe increasing immigration from Central and South America, where the tapeworm is more common, may also be a factor.

A condition known as neurocysticercosis occurs when immature larvae of the pork tapeworm travel in the bloodstream and lodge in the brain or central nervous system, sometimes causing seizures and headaches. The disease kills up to 50,000 people worldwide each year, according to a Cambridge University research group.

“Neurocysticercosis is a major health problem along the United States-Mexico border,” according to a 1998 report by the Texas Department of Health, which said the increase corresponds to increased immigration from areas where the disease is more common. It also said doctors are better able to diagnose the disease, using CAT scans.

“It’s a tremendous problem in Third World countries and its becoming an increasing problem in the U.S. It definitely has to do with immigration,” Dr. Judy Teale, a researcher at the University of Texas Health Science Center, told The Monitor newspaper in McAllen.

Teale is studying the effects of treatment for the disease.

It is important to understand that as long as we live on this planet, there is an ever-present risk of exposure to unhealthy organisms. A parasite cleanse can help you to counteract some of that exposure. For superior results, we suggest using Cleanse FX (colon cleanser) with Purify. These two products, when used together – cleanse the body, assist in the healthy restoration of natural functions, and in our opinion are superior to any other like products in the marketplace.

“Other prominent physicians agree with me; that in human history, the parasite challenge is likely the most unrecognized of all endemic problems. Because they cannot be seen and rarely present immediate symptoms, they remain invisible as a cause or contributing factor to what can be a serious disorder.”
– Dr. Ross Andersen, N.D.

“We have a tremendous parasite problem right here in the United States. It is just not being addressed.”
– Dr. Peter Wina, Chief of the Patho-Biology in the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research in 1991.

“In terms of numbers there are more parasitic infections acquired in this country than in Africa.”
– Dr. Frank Nova, Chief of the Laboratory for Parasitic Diseases of the National Institute of Health.

“It is well documented that parasites will cause malnutrition by using the nutrients a victim consumes – making them unavailable for the infected person. It makes sense to use a safe reliable parasite cleanse in any chronic health challenge to ensure that you are not feeding someone else instead of yourself.”
– Dr. Ross Andersen, N.D.

“Most individuals would be truly amazed if they knew the extraordinarily high number of Americans who are unknowingly infected by parasites.”
– Dr. Hermann R. Bueno, Specialist in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.

Parasitic infestations may promote compromised health in their hosts. Parasites live off our body’s life-force and the sustenance that we ingest. In addition to a loss of nourishment and cellular damage, the toxicities produced by these creatures play havoc with our immune system and degrade the optimum health of their host.

blog tape worm parasites09You probably have never seen a parasite. So, why would you worry about them? Since we have good sanitation, how could we possibly have parasites? The World Health Organization categorizes parasites as among the six most harmful afflictions that infect humans. The magnitude of these infections is absolutely staggering. You may think that such polluted conditions do not exist in the United States, but you would be wrong. Most people think that parasitic infections only occur in distant parts of the world such as impoverished rural areas in the third-world countries, or in the tropics. Nothing could be further from the truth. Because of this misconception, many people have overlooked the possibility of parasites as being present in their own bodies. Most people recognize the names of parasites such as tapeworms and pinworms, but they are completely unaware of the variety and quantity present in the population as a whole. These potentially harmful parasites, and their affects, are increasingly prevalent in the United States. Parasites should be an important part of every medical evaluation in the care of their patients.

blog DISCOVER magazine pic parasites

The August 2000 edition of Discover magazine published a headline article on parasites. Selected excerpts are reproduced below:

“Every living thing has at least one parasite that lives inside or on it, and many, including humans, have far more.

Parasites have largely been neglected. Scientists have treated them with indifference, even contempt, viewing them as essentially hitchhikers on life’s road. But recent research reveals that parasites are remarkably sophisticated and tenacious. Some castrate their hosts and take over their minds. Others completely shut down the immune systems of their hosts.

Scientists are only just beginning to discover exactly how powerful these hidden inhabitants can be, but their research is pointing to a remarkable possibility: Parasites may rule the world.

The notion that tiny creatures we’ve largely taken for granted are such a dominant force is immensely disturbing.

We are collections of cells that work together, kept harmonized by chemical signals. If an organism can control those signals— an organism like a parasite— then it can control us. And therein lies the peculiar and precise horror of parasites.”

The safe, natural alternative to remove parasites!

Iaso detox tea is a natural answer to the help your body. Infestation of these invaders in the human body are more prevalent than most people had previously imagined – but Iaso detox tea is nature’s solution to assist your body.

blog iaso nutrition facts       blog iaso tea

A Good Cleanse is a Truly Effective Cleanse…
Iaso is the Natural Answer!

There are literally several hundreds of parasitical varieties and species that can call the human body home. Of these, approximately 200+ organisms are classified as ‘standard’ and thereby can effectively be dealt with in less than a month. Of the remaining h’hardy’ classified parasitical invaders, they simply require a longer application to effectively eradicate through safe herbal methods. Most people who have parasites generally have more than one kind of parasite living in their body, consisting of a mixture of both the standard and hardy varieties. A truly comprehensive parasite cleanse product should address a full-body purge of BOTH the standard and hardy parasites.

To adequately deal with a broad-spectrum approach to parasite cleansing in conjunction with a whole-body objective, an effective herbal blend along with an adequate portion of time MUST be utilized to maximize and more effectively deal with a whole life-cycle remedy. To ensure that you do a comprehensive cleanse to achieve the desired maximum results a full month supply is recommended but samples are available.

#1 Deadlyist Prescribed Drug

Studies prove that sleep impacts longevity, memory, energy and overall well-being. Good sleep is essential, but as we age, it is hard to get.

#1 Most deadly prescribed drugs are sleeping pills. Millions of people resort to sleeping drugs like Ambien, Lunesta, Restoril, Sonata and others. Not only are these drugs among the most widely prescribed — mainstream medicine doles them out like Halloween candy… but they are also among the most deadly, making them #1 on the list of the 7 Most Dangerous Prescription Drugs at The  Health Science Institute.

How dangerous are they? According to a new study conducted by the Scripps Clinic:

People who use sleeping pills have a 530% higher death risk
They also have a 35% higher cancer risk…
Even folks who were prescribed as few as 18 sleeping pills per year had a 360% higher death risk.

It looks like sleeping pills could be as risky as smoking cigarettes,” states study leader Daniel Kripke, M.D., a professor of psychiatry emeritus at University of California.

Fortunately, there is better way to treat insomnia…

A safe, natural way that can help you get a sound, restful sleep… Imagine waking up each morning refreshed… energized… and ready to take on the day.

As we age, our bodies change in many ways. One of the changes is an increase in the production of something called cortisol. Now, cortisol is an important hormone in the body, secreted by the adrenal glands and involved in the regulation of blood pressure.

Problem is, too much cortisol in the body can keep us awake at night. Imagine drinking a big cup of coffee before bed… That’s what is happening when our body produces too much cortisol. That’s why I’m so excited about a natural formula specifically designed to address excess cortisol in your body. Cortisol is produced with high levels of stress.

Magnolia bark, which contains two compounds believed to reduce cortisol levels. In addition, ziziphus, an herb used as a sleep aid in Chinese medicine for over 2,000 years.

The result sleep free of the deadly side effects linked to drugs like Ambien, Lunesta and Restoril.

It’s completely natural, so you don’t have the groggy wooziness associated with prescription sleep drugs. That means you wake up refreshed and raring to go! Listen: A good night’s sleep is important at any age. But it is particularly important for folks over 65.

Always check for herbal interactions with other medications you are on.

Do You Crave Sugar or Struggle with Fatigue?

Please ‘like & share’ …

The hidden epidemic that can trigger weight gain, increase anxiety, destroy digestion and fuel sugar cravings.

See what Peter Weina, PhD, FACP  the Chief of Pathobiology at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research said more that 20 years ago, “we have a tremendous parasite problem right here in the United States—it’s just not being identified.”

Are Parasites Your Missing Diagnosis?

parasiteThis is an Intestinal Parasite.

Could unsuspected parasites be holding your health hostage?

If you regularly struggle with a stubborn sweet tooth, fatigue, or any of the following symptoms, invisible culprits could be the underlying cause:

  • Anxiety, nervousness and depression
  • Frequent infections including yeast infections and colds
  • Intestinal issues like intermittent constipation, diarrhea, bloating and gas
  • Joint or muscle pain
  • Difficulty sleeping or nighttime teeth grinding
  • Dark circles around or under the eyes
  • Acne, eczema, hives, rashes or other skin conditions
  • Sensory disorders such as vertigo, brain fog or poor coordination

Most people still dismiss parasites as a third-world concern.

But, a study in The American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene found that 32% of a nationally representative sample of 2,896 people tested positive for parasitic infections, and at least 48 states have fought measurable outbreaks.

It’s time that this epidemic finally be brought into focus. Increased international travel, improperly washed fruits and vegetables, undercooked/raw or microwaved fish, meat and poultry, polluted soil and water and inadequate hygiene (particularly in daycare and senior centers) all contribute to the spread of parasites.

Parasites are responsible for an enormous panorama of human health problems. Within our bodies, these critters consume our food and nutrients, producing toxic wastes, and eventually even destroying our tissues and cells.

As the most immunosuppressive agent in the human body, parasites produce indole catabolites that our eliminating organs like the kidneys and liver have to work overtime to excrete. In addition, our immune system goes on overdrive, emitting substances called cytokines that trigger a variety of immune responses. These high levels of cytokines have been linked to increased incidences like violent suicide attempts as well as depression. Cytokines can pass through the blood-brain barrier and negatively impact neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin in the brain.

HERE ARE THE WARNING SIGNS:

  • Sugar cravings – A diet high in simple carbs like sugar, white flour, and milk can fuel your uninvited guests, even so-called “natural” sweets—honey, rice syrup, fruit juice sweeteners—provide instant nourishment for your internal hitchhikers. Simple carbohydrate foods require more time to pass through the alimentary system. A sluggish transit time allows more food to decay and putrefy, thus producing stagnation in the colon and an inviting environment for toxic buildup.
  • Anxiety – Toxoplasmosis infection has been dramatically and significantly linked to General Anxiety Disorder (GAD), for example.
  • Secondary dairy and gluten intolerance – Many parasites, like roundworm and Giardia, can trigger secondary lactose and casein intolerance, so avoiding milk and cheese is a must. Because of the damaged intestinal villi, Giardia can also precipitate a type of gluten intolerance. With any protozoan infection that can damage the intestinal villi, it is always a good idea to reduce the intake of grains.
  • Food and environmental allergies – Parasites irritate and sometimes perforate the intestinal lining, increasing bowel permeability to large undigested molecules and activating the body’s immune response, causing allergic reactions.
  • Anemia – If enough parasites are present, you can lose enough blood to cause iron deficiency or anemia.
  • Constipation – Some worms, because of their shape and size, can block the bile duct and intestinal tract, making elimination difficult and infrequent.
  • Gas and bloating – Some parasites live in the upper small intestine, making persistent abdominal distention a frequent sign of uninvited guests.
  • Irritable bowel syndrome – Parasites can inflame the intestinal cell wall, leading to various GI symptoms and malabsorption of vital nutrients.
  • Joint and muscle aches/pains – Some parasites can migrate and encyst in joint fluids and muscles, leading to chronic inflammation.
  • Skin conditions – Parasites can cause allergic skin reactions: eczema, hives, rashes, sores.
  • Inability to lose or gain weight
  • Plus, Overall fatigue, dark circles under the eyes, and grinding of the teeth

Here is another blog on the signs: DO I HAVE PARASITES? By Hanna Kroeger Healer

Ready for a Cleanse?

If a few of the warning signs sound familiar, it may be time for a parasite cleanse! Here are a few things you can do, it will require discipline and patience or you can drink this tea that has been proven to work, it’s guaranteed. Click here to watch this quick video on the benefits of this tea, it does MORE that just kill parasites!  I’m writing this blog because I want to show you that I am not just here to sell you a tea, I am here to educate you. Who wants to sit around and wait to do all these things listed below to kill the parasites? NOT ME! Feel free to use this information but if it were me, I’d just drink the tea.

Up your digestive enzymes, probiotics and HCl. All three are critical to the process of parasite elimination. You want your stomach and your gut to be acidic in order to provide an inhospitable environment for the critters to take route.

Limit raw of all kinds, especially if you eat out. Eat plenty of properly cooked proteins like wild-caught fish, organic meat, free range chicken and pastured eggs. Protein provides the amino acids necessary to strengthen tissues and enhance immunity.

Gently increase fiber intake.  Soluble and insoluble fiber have amazing detoxification and sweeping effects on both large and small invaders.

Get the sugar out.  The worst offenders are those liquid sugar calories from soda and fruit juice.

Eliminate cold drinks. These act as a shock to the body and cause the intestinal tract to contract and hold on to waste materials, exactly what you don’t want during this detox period.

Avoid most dairy and gluten-based products. The exception to this dairy ban would be plain organic yogurt and kefir.

Up the beta-carotene. Based upon clinical studies it appears that of all the vitamins and minerals, vitamin A best increases resistance to tissue penetration by parasitic larvae. Foods rich in pre-vitamin A or beta-carotene (think brightly colored orange and green veggies) should be added liberally to the diet. Note that a serving of organic wheat grass juice powder or capsules is a convenient way to obtain beta carotene as well as the nutritional value of three pounds of organic green veggies.

Think zinc. Along with vitamin A-rich foods, please increase your zinc. Vitamin A and zinc are by far the two most important nutrients to add to your diet for parasite-proofing. Zinc can be found in beef, turkey, lamp, eggs, and pumpkin seeds.

Use onions, garlic, cloves, and fennel in cooking and nibble on pumpkin seeds as a snack. These are all well-respected and time-honored parasite controllers.

Try colonic cleansing. Home enemas and colonic irrigation can play an important role in cleansing the colon of parasites. Garlic enemas, for example, are especially helpful in eliminating pinworms.

Take a tablespoon of fish or flax oil. Fish and flaxseed oils are especially helpful with parasites because their fatty acids are absorbed so readily in the structure of the body’s cellular membranes thus providing protection down to the cellular level against hidden invaders. The oils also lubricate the gastrointestinal tract and serve as a carrier for fat-soluble vitamin A, creating an environment uninviting for waste, toxins, and microorganism buildup.

Sip therapeutic teas. Drink one to two cups of mugwort tea every day. Mugwort hardly sounds like a formidable herb, but the tea made from it has been used for generations to kill intestinal parasites.

Try some antiparasitic supplements. For the microscopic parasites try an herbal formula consisting of cranberry concentrate, grapefruit seed extract, Artemisia annua, pomegranate, peppermint, slippery elm and bromelain. Cranberry is especially important because its organic acids kill parasites by breaking down their protein structure and stimulate the release of parasitic waste.

For the larger worms and flukes, try an herbal tincture containing black walnut, wormwood, centaury, male fern, orange peel, cloves and butternut. Centaury is an herb revered by Native Americans for its ability to relax the parasites triggering release of their hooks and suckers from the intestinal tract which is especially effective the newly uncovered human rope worm.

How to Test for Parasites

The best way to test for a parasite is to get a stool test. Most doctors will run a conventional stool test if they suspect a parasite, however these are not as accurate as the comprehensive stool tests that is used in functional medicine. If you think you might have a parasite, I encourage you find a functional medicine physician in your area so that they can order a comprehensive stool test for you. My motto is: Good gut health leads to good health. It all starts there!

Why A Magnesium Deficiency Is “Invisible” & How It’s Affecting Your Health Right Now

It has been dubbed the “invisible deficiency,” an appropriate title considering only 1 percent of magnesium in your body is distributed in your blood, meaning that samples of magnesium from serum magnesium blood tests are considerably useless.

It’s estimated that about 80 percent of Americans are deficient in magnesium today, with the recommended daily intake for men being 420mg and 320mg for women. However, as explained by Dr. Carolyn Dean, a medical and naturopathic doctor, even this recommended amount is merely only enough to ward of deficiency symptoms. 

What’s Important About Magnesium?

Magnesium is a mineral used by nearly every organ and muscle in your body, including your heart and kidneys. While previously it was thought that magnesium’s primary benefits were exclusive to the heart and bones, recent research has discovered 3,751 magnesium-binding sites on human proteins, indicating a more substantial role for magnesium in our overall health and the prevention of disease.

Furthermore, magnesium has been found in over 200 different human enzymes, indicating its role in the detoxification process of various environmental toxins. Dr. Carol Dean points out a few key benefits of magnesium:

  • Activating muscles and nerves
  • Creating energy in your body by activating adenosine triphosphate (ATP)
  • Helping digest proteins, carbohydrates and fats
  • Serving as a building block for RNA and DNA synthesis
  • Acting as a precursor for neurotransmitters like serotonin

What Magnesium Deficiency Is Associated With

Dr. Dean is the author of The Magnesium Miracle, a book which investigates 22 significant health disorders associated with magnesium deficiency. Some of these disorders include:

Anxiety and panic attacks Asthma Blood clots
Bowel diseases Cystitis Depression
Detoxification Diabetes Fatigue
Heart disease Hypertension Hypoglycemia
Insomnia Kidney disease Liver disease
Migraine Musculoskeletal conditions (fibromyalgia, chronic back pain) Nerve problems
Obstetrics and gynecology (PMS, infertility) Osteoporosis Raynaud’s syndrome
Tooth decay

Early signs of magnesium deficiency include loss of appetite, headache, nausea, fatigue and weakness.

Magnesium’s Connection To Cancer & Chronic Disease

Studies suggest a direct relationship between magnesium and insulin sensitivity and glucose regulation, particularly if you are of high risk already. Higher magnesium intake reduces risk of impaired glucose and insulin metabolism and slows progression from pre-diabetes to diabetes in middle-aged Americans.

Also important to note is how research has shown a direct correlation between high levels of magnesium and higher bone mineral density.

Higher dietary magnesium levels is also associated with lower cases of colorectal cancer.

Here is what Dr. Dean had to say about this,

Results from the meta-analysis indicated that for every 100-mg increase in magnesium intake, the risk of colorectal tumor decreased by 13 percent, while the risk of colorectal cancer was lowered by 12 percent. The researchers noted magnesium’s anti-cancer effects may be related to its ability to reduce insulin resistance, which may positively affect the development of tumors.

Dietary And Lifestyle Factors That Influence Your Magnesium Levels

It is true that green leafy vegetable such as kale and spinach are great sources of magnesium. It is also true that magnesium can be sourced from beans, nuts, and sunflower, pumpkin and sesame seeds. However, what most don’t realize is that due to the degradation of our soil today, a higher percentage of dietary magnesium has been lost. 100 years ago we may have found 500mg of magnesium in our soil, while today we are lucky to receive 200mg.

Another factor infringing your body’s ability to absorb magnesium is the presence of glyphosate, a popular herbicide that acts by blocking the absorption of micronutrients in the body. Glyphosate is heavily used by Monsanto (GMO).

Drinking alcohol can also interfere with mineral uptake by blocking the absorption of vitamin D, a nutrient that regulates mineral uptake.

Here are a few more factors that could interfere with your magnesium levels:

  • Excessive intake of soda or caffeine
  • Menopause
  • Older age (older adults are more likely to be magnesium deficient because absorption decreases with age and the elderly are more likely to take medications that can interfere with absorption)
  • Certain medications, including diuretics, certain antibiotics (such as gentamicin and tobramycin), corticosteroids (prednisone or Deltasone), antacids, and insulin
  • An unhealthy digestive system, which impairs your body’s ability to absorb magnesium (Crohn’s disease, leaky gut, etc.)

Some Final Tips On Increasing Your Magnesium Levels

Juicing is a powerful way to condense and receive your vitamins and minerals. Be sure to use dark green vegetables for a strong, bio-available magnesium punch.

When it comes to magnesium supplements, you are going to find the magnesium bound to another molecule because magnesium isn’t available by itself.

Magnesium threonate and citrate are some of the best sources, as it seems to penetrate cell membranes, including your mitochondria, which results in higher energy levels. Additionally, it also penetrates your blood-brain barrier and seems to do wonders to treat and prevent dementia and improve memory.

You’ll know if you are taking too much magnesium if you feel your stool is too runny. Too little magnesium can lead to constipation.

Epsom salt baths are also a great way to absorb magnesium through the skin. However, avoid any product containing magnesium stearate, a common but potentially hazardous additive.
