I Just Want to Walk to the Bathroom.

(This is a topic that might make some of you squeamish but others will thank me and begin buying Cottonelle, the very best brand of toilet paper in my opinion.)



Magnesium! Many warn against taking magnesium because it may give you diarrhea! Once I heard that I couldn’t order mine fast enough! I am not kidding! The first day I took the recommended dose I was running to the bathroom… the next day I was at a jog… the third-day speed walking and the fourth… a pleasant stroll with a smile on my face.

Many of you know I am not big into recommending products but this has been a 20-year problem solved in a week! I had to share! I have been on every stool softener and OTC constipation reliever that was ever made. But then I found this on a Facebook site. I ordered the above, OmniBlue Ocean Minerals. My expectations were low… but the price was reasonable so why not? I got the tincture and I put 10 drops into a glass of juice every morning. No more because ‘it’ will get messy, no less because then it doesn’t work. You’ll have to find your perfect dose.

If you are still running to the bathroom after the second day, lower your dose. If you haven’t run yet, increase! Ten drops are my perfect dose. Not eleven!!! Not nine. Ten drops.

Then I started reading more about magnesium and was aghast at the benefits this trace mineral has for your overall health and specifically for fibromyalgia.

Concerning fibromyalgia deficient amounts of magnesium plays a role in restless legs, fatigue, fibro fog and an increase in painful trigger points. As for our overall health, there are about 300 enzymes that require magnesium to function, especially many that are crucial to brain function!

This is a no-brainer! (Pardon the pun!) Get yourself on some magnesium.

Important Magnesium Benefits from the website of Dr. Axe, Food Medicine. (http//:www.dr.axe.com/)

  1. Help increase energy.
  2. Calms nerves.
  3. Helps you fall asleep and treat insomnia.
  4. Helps with digestion by relieving constipation.
  5. Relieves muscle spasms.
  6. Regulates the level of calcium and potassium.
  7. Important for heart health.
  8. Prevents migraine headaches.
  9. Helps prevent osteoporosis.

I like the OmniBlue brand, as it is in liquid form. You need to mix it with something though. It tastes like over salted ocean water! (Imagine that?) Cranberry juice and tonic does it for me. (No vodka!) Well … just make good choices! And remember, bathroom breaks can once again be pleasant.
