Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain condition with symptoms of depression, fatigue and sleep disturbance. But pain in the form of headaches, leg cramps, joint and muscle pain is the most common symptom.
“Since fibromyalgia is characterised by a hyperactive stress response, anything that we can do to activate the opposite reaction in our bodies by generating a relaxation response can reduce symptoms. One easy way to do that is with topical magnesium lotions or soaking in magnesium enriched water. “ Nearly all fibromyalgia sufferers are deficient in magnesium.
Studies have found a correlation between decreased magnesium levels and fibromyalgia symptoms and because oral supplementation is often problematic due to digestive issues such as IBS also being part of the overall fibromyalgia picture, transdermal magnesium therapy is a valuable adjunct to alternative therapies for this complex condition.
Although magnesium is available from multiple food sources, the depletion of soils and invariability of diets suggest that magnesium treatment for fibromyalgia is needed. Magnesium, known as the relaxation mineral has many functions throughout the body – it has calming effects on the brain, nerves and muscles. This is in large part due to the fact that magnesium is part of the enzyme activation process throughout the body. As it turns out magnesium is better absorbed through our skin than through our intestines so bathing in Epsom Salts to relax tight and sore muscles and to improve sleep is the most effective way of increasing magnesium levels if you’re a fibromyalgia sufferer.
Transdermal magnesium therapy is a powerful tool that combines the healing power of the body’s largest organ - the skin - with the life-sustaining properties of one of our most vital minerals. The skin is a living, breathing organ - the most efficient organ for detoxification with tremendous potential for re-mineralizing the body.
