BATHS AND FOOT BATHS
This is a great way to absorb magnesium. The skin is the biggest organ on our body and our feet have the largest pores allowing ample absorption of magnesium. Using epsom salt (which is magnesium) in the baths is a wonderful way to reduce stress and absorb minerals at the same time. A dosage to start out with would be 1-2 cups of epsom salt + 1 cup of baking soda (not baking powder). Immerse yourself in this rejuvenating liquid for 30-40 minutes, 2-3 times a week. Graduate over time to as much as 8 cups of epsom salt.
One can also go ahead and take a magnesium foot bath which is a way to replenish an extreme deficiency quickly by doing it daily. Dosage is 1-2 oz of this oil in hot water covering your toes in a small tub. Both can be purchased at any local drug store.
Put magnesium (I add as well electrolytes) drops in your water. The real purpose of water is to receive minerals! If you want to take it in capsule form, I found the best form is to take is malate or glycinate.
Eating more magnesium rich foods such as: oysters, prawns, clams, shrimp, crab, haddock, salmon, brown rice, raw oats, buckwheat, millet and wild rice, collards, chard, beet greens, kelp/seaweed, spinach and kale (cook all leafy green vegetables), cashews, almonds, brazil nuts, walnuts, fresh/dried coconut and avocados.
Cofactors (to help absorb and utilize it better) such as vitamin B6 or boron are wonderful supplements to help get magnesium inside of one’s cells.
Remember to go slow since magnesium can have a laxative effect on your gut!
