Amazingly Underutilized Healing From a Simple Mineral & My Personal Testimony

There is a mineral that is found in the earth, in plants and the sea. It’s so essential to us because every cell in our body contains it and needs it to function. About 60% of this mineral in our bodies is found in bone and the rest in muscles, soft tissues and fluids, including our blood. It’s involved in over 400 cellular reactions! This mineral is none other than Magnesium.

It has some extremely amazing properties that make it so critical for us to thrive and maintain optimum health. Some that are just currently being researched and spoken about. More and more physicians are waking up to the fact that we have been fooled for centuries into believing that we are actually healing the sick with medication versus alleviating symptoms and in a way arresting the disease; but what’s at the root cause. Could a lot of what we suffer for come from deficiencies of vitamins and minerals in the body?

Do you suffer from osteoporosis and take calcium with or without vitamin D? What about Diabetes or at risk for Stroke? How about have you been told that you have calcifications in your arteries? Check out this video on Magnesium. I think you’ll find it extremely interesting.

Must See This Vid!!!!

In seeing how a magnesium deficiency can cause so many problems but yet be so simple to rid ourselves of these symptoms or diseases, or even prevent them, NOW WHAT WILL YOU DO ABOUT IT? The first thing you should do is make sure you consult your doctor. Hopefully you have a physician that is open to utilizing diet and nutrition to heal. Second, do your research and find the best supplement if you really feel you have a deficiency. Blood draws can be done as well. There is an excellent magnesium supplement that crosses the Blood Brain Barrier and therefore gets this amazing mineral to the site of action in which it’s needed if you suffer from Central Nervous System issues and more. It’s called Magnesium L-Threonate.

My Personal Testimony of Healing

This story begins about a year and a half ago when I began taking supplemental calcium and vitamin D tablets daily as prevention for osteoporosis, which runs in my family. My Mother and Grandmother seemed to develop it and I did not want to acquire it. My doctor recommended it and about 5-6 months after taking it daily, I developed what looked like a bone spur or some time of deposit on my hand. My research began and I tried a number of things. After researching about Magnesium and how it can help calcium to be balanced in the body and even help with this issue, I decided to try it.

This is what happened:

You can make a huge difference in your health through eating to live, eating healthy and if needed, taking a select amount of supplements if needed. Supplements are not to be taken on a whim. Do your own research, find out if you are deficient in something that is causing you to suffer from Dis-ease, try something natural if it is not an urgent situation and then monitor for results.

I’m #Nuts About You

So which nut is more beneficial to our health?  Let’s get to the point!

The Brazilian Nut:

In just one-fourth of a cup there are 218 calories, 4 grams of carbs, 5 grams of protein, and 22 grams of fat (mostly unsaturated and great for the heart).  Selenium is a huge health benefit, which we will talk about in a bit.  You also get the added benefit of iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sodium.  There are trace amounts of thiamin, vitamin B6, riboflavin and niacin.

The Almond:
In one-fourth of a cup of almonds there are 162 calories, 14 grams of unsaturated fat (great for our hearts) and 6 grams of protein, but don’t get carried away.  This is only about 23 almonds and we must remember this about all nuts….the portion is important.  Almonds contain fiber in addition to protein and magnesium.  They also contain vitamin E.  This small nut helps us to lower blood sugar levels, blood pressure and cholesterol levels.  Due to the amount of fiber and protein, they can also decrease appetite and help with weight loss.
So who are the stars of the contents:
Selenium– This is a trace element found in the soil and in certain foods as well as water.  It is good for preventing coronary heart disease, fighting inflammation, reducing free radicals, helping with antioxidant activity and increasing blood flow.  It also helps the thyroid convert T4 (thyroid hormone) into the active T3 form.  Healthy thyroid function equals a healthier metabolism.  It also plays a role in cancer prevention and improves sexual performance.  In men it boosts testosterone levels and helps with sperm production and motility.
Iron– Although pistachio nuts lead in the amount of iron as far as nuts go (four times more as Brazilian nuts or almonds), these above nuts are still a great source of iron.  Iron is one of the components of hemoglobin, the material in red blood cells that helps our blood to carry oxygen throughout our bodies.  Vitamin C can boost the amount of absorption of iron.
Nuts are loaded with vitamin E, healthy fats, protein and magnesium and those that eat nuts as a regular part of their diet have been shown to lower their risk of obesity, heart disease and diabetes type 2.
So, based on which one of the above packs in more of the above important components, THE WINNER IS the Brazilian Nut over the Almond.  The fact that the Brazilian Nut comes in at number one for Selenium in food charts and the almond only yields about 2% of the daily amount that we use, for me, there is no contest!
What is a good serving size for most nuts:  one handful, 1/4 cup or  1 ounce.  So add these little delightful snacks as a regular part of your diet, especially to curb your appetite in between meals.  I like them with yogurt and a bit of granola.  If you currently enjoy them as a part of your regular diet, share your way of eating them below:
