About 15 years ago, I was mentally in such a bad way, my friends pretty much forced me to go and see a Doctor to get some Anti-Depressants. I was in a very high pressure job, exercising a lot, I was going through a break-up and I was just not coping, at all. I was under so much pressure at work, I would just start crying, I couldn’t sleep properly, when I did sleep, I had nightmares.
I talked to my friends about everything till I got sick of myself talking about it, and that didn’t even help. Although I thank god I had an amazing circle of friends who were there for me. I consider myself one of the lucky ones, as the doctor I went to see was a bit more alternate and thorough. He went through everything with me, including what I was eating, was I exercising, what was I going through and we talked for about 40 minutes. In the end, he filled the script for me, but he then said “Do me a favour, before you fill the script, go and buy some Magnesium and Calcium Tablets, have 2 morning and night, be very consistent, have them for a week, and if you still feel the same way this time next week, fill the script, if you feel better, rip it up”.A week later to the day, I felt my body take a deep sigh (weirdest feeling ever), my whole body relaxed, I felt like a completely different person. Everything was still going on around me, the same as the week before, although now I was coping with it. In reality this Doctor changed my whole life. Saved my Life.
I started working Saturdays in a Health Food store, and learning more and more everyday about, Minerals, Vitamins, Herbs and the health benefits they have. And I haven’t stopped learning since. I tell people this story so many times, and then let them make their own decision about Magnesium. If someone isn’t sleeping properly, Magnesium is my first suggestion. So many people have come back and thanked me for my guidance and for helping to turn their lives around with one simple solution.This is my story only and what helped me, you can take from it what you wish, I hope that even if this story reaches one person and saves them, then my story was worth telling. You see I could have talked till the cows came home, but without topping up the Minerals my nervous system was lacking, in order for it to function properly, it was impossible for me to sleep properly and for me to feel better.
I still have Magnesium every day.
