Minerals Control Your Mind and Nervous System
You can control your mental states with mineral supplementation. If you have too little of magnesium, you may need to add MUCH more than you expected, if you are the right Metabolic Type.
Four Minerals that Control Your Autonomic Nervous System
Calcium and Magnesium regulate the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) which controls our fight or flight reaction and rest and digest on the parasympathetic side. SNS is stimulated by calcium and inhibited by magnesium. Imbalance causes SNS dominance, an uptight nervous, jittery person. Magnesium will calm you down and bring back your sunny personality. Potassium and Sodium regulate the parasympathetic nervous system (PSNS), which controls our rest and digest reaction. PSNS is stimulated by potassium, and inhibited by sodium. Imbalance causes PSNS dominance, a lethargic, tired, slow-moving person. Supplementing potassium will revive you out of the evening fatigue.
The Result of Mineral Imbalance on Your Autonomic Nervous System
Free excess calcium will over-stimulate your SNS when there’s insufficient magnesium to balance it out. Potassium is depleted, so the PSNS cannot be properly stimulated to offset the SNS. If you have an acidic cellular environment and free excess calcium, you’ll have an imbalance between the SNS and the PSNS of your autonomic nervous system. This can cause you to be hyperactive, quick to anger, nervous & jittery, and burnt out (like many people in our fast-paced society).
Calcium to Magnesium Ratio
This ratio between calcium and magnesium is very important in dealing with the cause and prevention of a number of disorders, including cardiovascular, heart and blood pressure illnesses. The absorption and metabolism of magnesium depends upon calcium intake, and vice versa. The balance between these two minerals is extremely important. The mainstream medicine system treats everybody the same, ignoring Biological Individuality. Unlike the statistical average person, you have specific needs. You need either more calcium, or more magnesium, and NOT both.
In view of the overwhelming benefits of magnesium, the traditional ratio of approximately 2 parts calcium to 1 part magnesium needs to be revised. The ideal ratio is different, depending on a persons Biological Individuality. Note: The trace mineral boron plays a part in preventing the urinary loss of magnesium and calcium. Take a serious look at our topical magnesium products. They are unlike anything else on the market. They deliver magnesium through your skin, transdermally.
