Magnesium: Critical for Every Body Tissue

I have been studying magnesium and using it in my neurosurgical practice for almost 30 years. I discovered this incredible element during my medical residency. At the time, one of the most difficult complications for patients suffering from intracranial bleeding (bleeding within the skull, also called subarachnoid hemorrhage) was intense spasm of the brain’s vital blood vessels.
 
This complication often led to death. Yet medicine offered little to treat this deadly condition. After studying the mechanism by which intracranial bleeding caused vessels to go into spasm, I looked for drugs that were known to relax spastic vessels. None were available.
 
Further research led me to several studies that demonstrated the ability of magnesium to relax blood vessels. I tested various combinations of magnesium solutions and found that as the concentration of the magnesium increased, the spasm could be stopped by irrigating the area. I showed my program chairman what I had discovered, but he showed little interest.
 
Back then, I didn’t know that an even better solution was to prevent the spasm in the first place by giving a patient magnesium along with the IV fluids rather than merely irrigating the surface of the brain. A fatal spasm was prevented because the real problem was a deficiency of magnesium in the brain and the blood vessels themselves.
 
Years later, I started giving subarachnoid hemorrhage patients intravenous magnesium in large doses, and I never had a patient die from blood vessel spasms again. Meanwhile, this devastating complication continued to occur with my colleagues’ patients.
 
I have since learned that magnesium is critical for the health of not only blood vessels, but also every tissue and organ in the body. Deficiencies of this essential element are linked to many maladies. These include:
 
• Heart disease
• Strokes
• Atherosclerosis
• Abnormal kidney function
• Muscle weakness
• Diabetes
• Insulin resistance
• Metabolic syndrome
• Inflammation
• Excitotoxicity
• Neurodegenerative diseases
• Impaired lung function
• Cancer
• Immune system disorders
 
Magnesium has also been shown to be a major weapon against depression and even suicide.
