Magnesium relieves nerve pain and helps muscles relax, a benefit to people suffering arthritis joint pain.
Magnesium helps balance the brain chemical NMDA with few side effects, unlike other medications doing the same thing, making it an inexpensive and less toxic treatment for pain, said Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum on the Dr. Oz website
. However, magnesium has not yet been approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

Some holistic medicine practitioners use magnesium intravenously to help with everything from migraine headaches to fibromyalgia and fatigue, wrote Teitelbaum.
Many people are magnesium deficient due to poor dietary habits. Long-term deficiency of magnesium can impact your immune system and create hormonal imbalances and changes in the bones, according to Progressive Health
Those who are deficient in magnesium may also be deficient in calcium, the website said, but warned against taking too much calcium without magnesium, too.

"Large doses of calcium in the absence of magnesium will cause the calcification of soft tissues and joints," Progressive Health said. "Since calcium supplementation without magnesium can cause the deposition of calcium in the joints, it is not advisable since it does not properly mineralize the bone but cause joint pain. Therefore, the overall results of magnesium deficiency are osteoporosis, arthritis and joint pain."
Dr. Tanya Edwards, medical director of the Center for Integrative Medicine at the Cleveland Clinic, told WebMD she recommends magnesium
for patients with chronic pain. "It's really easy to be magnesium deficient," she said. "The foods that are highest in magnesium are things like sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. Most of us just don't eat those very often."
