The stress factor
Another reason why almost 75% of the world population has a mineral deficiency, is stress. Stress creates a chemical substance in the body that attacks and eliminates also minerals. Magnesium levels go down, to dangerous deficiencies. One gets signs, and these differ from person to person. These signs can be, in a case of magnesium deficiency:
- Mental disorders: depression, anxieties, panic attacks
- Fatigue and muscle weakness
- Cold feet
- Cramps in legs and feet
- Pain in the muscles
- Heart palpitations
- High blood pressure
- Too high bad cholesterol
- Too low level of vitamin D
- Insomnia: problems with sleeping, waking up frequently, waking up too early, sleeping during the day
- Headache, migraine
- Loss of appetite
- Problems with sugar levels in the blood:
- Longing for sweets, candy, all what contains sugar
- And more
It is not unimaginable that lots of human beings are diagnosed and treated for mental disorders that easily could/can be healed by offering vitamins and minerals, instead of antidepressants, and for instance sleeping pills. When one uses medicine while it is not the right medicine, because of a wrong diagnose, one gets the symptoms where the medicine is for. This is not so strange at all, but pure logic. To be clear: one gets depressed really when taking antidepressants while one is not depressed for the reason the doctor assumes you are depressed of.
Doctors make often wrong diagnoses because of lack of time, working under high pressure, and a growing amount of patients. Be aware of the responsibility for your own body, mind and health and do not make a God out of your doctor.
Instead experimenting with food supplements, even if found in a recommended drugstore, please consult a professional therapist who has studied orthomolecular medicine or natural medicine.
