Question: Does applying magnesium oil topically offer any benefit for osteoporosis pain? I am using magnesium sprays on my lower back
and it seems to be helping.


Dr. Brownstein's Answer:

The human body contains a large amount of magnesium — more than 25 grams. Magnesium is needed for bone formation, nerve impulses, protein
synthesis, and many other crucial body functions.

I have been checking red blood cell magnesium levels in my patients for nearly 20 years. After thousands of tests, I can assure you that the majority
of patients are deficient in magnesium. The reason for this deficiency is that our soil has been depleted of magnesium due to poor farming techniques.

Magnesium deficiency predisposes the heart to rhythm abnormalities, osteoporosis, diabetes, hypertension, headaches, as well as muscle weakness
and cramps.

Unfortunately, many patients cannot take magnesium due to its major side effect — loose stools and diarrhea.

Applying magnesium topically can bypass the gastrointestinal side effects. I have found topical magnesium very effective for raising red blood cell magnesium levels and improving the clinical conditions I mentioned above.
