Some researching I have found on magnesium. Please read.
« on: June 29, 2014, 09:39:48 PM »
 I'm not saying this is a magic pill. But I have done some researching on a lot of things anxiety related and videos and so on. What we are unsure of is exactly what vitamins and minerals are body isn't getting. We have anxiety disorder for a reason. It's not all in our heads other than the fact we have a chemical imbalance in our brains that is being misfired and sending our bodies off in fight or flight mode.


I can't write this all out on here it's too long but magnesium in our body is very important. We get it in certain foods we eat but it's not enough our bodies need. It can cause a lot of things to happen in our bodies. Even twitching and I know a lot of you have that. Even if it is anxiety or not. It can cause memory problems, lack of energy, insomnia and more. It's good for the heart to take it as well.

Our doctors do not find what vitamins and minerals that our bodies are lack of by blood tests. I thought they did but they don't. It takes a hair analysis. So therefore we have no idea most of the time.  All doctors want to do is tell us that we have anxiety and here's some pills they should help you or you need a shrink. Not saying that therapists aren't helpful. What works for you is great. All I'm saying is from what I've been researching on that tons of people like us have found out that magnesium has been very helpful in their well being. It has helped them to think normally, and so on. We can't expect this to be a magical cure but it could help us more than what we think. I'm tired of anxiety. So I'm gonna do whatever it takes to overcome it. I may have bad days where I feel like there's no hope but I can't let that get me down. It's my brain. It's a chemical imbalance. I've known that but there's a reason for it.

Here's a great article on magnesium and if I find more info I will be posting so please subscribe to my thread. I'm just trying to help all of you as myself. We are not living normal cause of this.

Think about it, we worry about diseases and our bodies. But look at what anxiety is doing to our bodies. We may have allergies, we may have a real benign illness, but because of our chemical imbalance, we make it out to be a major illness. If you have new symptoms yes see a doctor and have things ruled out and move on but we don't, instead we continue to worry. Yes I'm still battling my fear of a brain tumor it's hell but I'm tired of it. That's why I'm gonna do whatever it takes. And gonna find a solution to overcome anxiety.

I hope you all are with me!

i appreciated this post, but unfortunately, there is more to it than just what is stated here. i am sure that magnesium can/will help some. but at the end of the day, too much magnesium is bad for you [so i hope nobody is running to their nearest pharmacy to get these pills] so i would check with your doctor before doing anything. i just feel like there's more of a mental thing [for me] because little magnesium doesn't cause me to freak out at red lights only, or busy roads only. there is much more to it.

i think everyone wants a miracle pill/drug/outlet - and unfortunately, for so many, it differs from person to person.

Yeah of course it's always good to check with your doctors first and helpful to get a test to see what vitamins your body may be slacking.

Yes it does depend on the person. Like I said therapy may help others, chemical drugs, so on. Its all about changing the way we think. Facing our fears. Leap of faith. :)

Magnesium is not the only essential salt people tend to be deficient in, either. The WHO estimates that as much as 85% of people in first-world countries suffer from insufficient potassium in their diet. Also, as much as 40% get too little calcium (especially women). If I recall about 30% don't get enough vitamin D. Vitamin D is essential for mood health and proper brain function, and guess who gets the least of it in their diet? Shut-ins such as those with agoraphobia and depression, because they don't get any sun which is necessary for the formation of vitamin D. Especially in the winter it is important to make sure you get enough vitamin D. But all of these things can be worse for you if you take too much than if you get too little, so don't overdo it.

Yup. I never took daily vitamins.   I'm a smoker, never got exercise besides yard work and never drank water and ate ok. So I would not be surprised what lack of vitamins my body could be lack of. The Vitamin d one is interesting.

I only take a daily vitamin now, and a vitamin b 12 and I have magnesium in 500mg and I hear that the body needs at least 800 a day.

Women should get at least 400 milligrams (mg) of magnesium a day, and men should get at least 333 mg a day. Current studies show that the average intake of Americans is less than 300 mg. People who need to be extra careful to get the right amounts of magnesium include those who are pregnant or lactating, those with kidney disease, diabetics, those on low-calorie diets, and those taking digitalis preparations and diuretics. All of these people should consult their physician before beginning any new regimen.

Government guidelines suggest 420 milligrams (mg) per day for men, 320 mg for women. We recommend that both men and women aim to get 400-500 mg of magnesium per day. It may be tough to get all the magnesium you need from food, so top up your daily intake with a multivitamin that contains at least 100 mg of magnesium.

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have kidney disease or diabetes, are on a low-calorie diet, or are taking digitalis preparations or diuretics, talk to your doctor about how much magnesium you should be getting.

Do research on it. You can take that amount a day and it's safe. I didn't want people to think I was telling them to take it like candy. Just do some research on magnesium and anxiety. And you can find good stuff on YouTube.

Thanks for the heads-up.

I was actually very big into nutrition/fitness before my most recent HA episode. I've always taken 300-500mg in supplements (I literally had tablets just hangin'-out in my cupboard). I meant to say you've just convinced me to start trying a daily dose to help with my anxiety.

Yeah. Once a day should be ok. I know a lot of people who do and they have had good results. Everyone is different but it doesn't hurt to try.
