Magnesium and pregnancy

Lee Harold

Pregnancy is an amazing miracle occurring within the female body. Changes? You bet! Your baby will grow 10,000 times larger in the first month of your pregnancy. Ten thousand! That level of growth calls for some serious resources from your body. Guess what mineral you will need to be aware of during your pregnancy (and why do doctors only rarely study essential minerals or nutrition)?

Magnesium is what helps your body repair maintain and build tissue. This becomes especially important when growing another body inside yourself. Medical studies have shown that a Magnesium supplement during pregnancy can provide an amazing number of benefits, from preventing preeclampsia to building strong bones and even preventing infant mortality. Calcium is responsible for all muscular contraction in the body through the actions of the main proteins in the signalling apparatus. Magnesium on the other hand is largely responsible for the relaxing of the muscles .

There is significant scientific evidence that adequate Magnesium levels PREVENTS premature contraction of the uterus. 

Many people recommend Magnesium to help with morning sickness and overall well-being during pregnancy. Another of the latest fads is bone broth! Here is another link to a recipe for bone broth.


So  obviously your baby needs Magnesium during the pregnancy…where do you think it will get it from?

Naturally, from the mother. So YOUR Magnesium levels need to be kept up as well during pregnancy.

Magnesium deficiency can manifest as fatigue, aches and pains or cramping, as well as insomnia and a cloudy mind. So if you are pregnant, or planning a pregnancy in the next twelve months, Dr Carolyn Dean recommends building your body’s Magnesium levels. We recommend using the Amazing Oils daily on your lower back and on the tops of your feet before sleep. In the third trimester we recommend only using on the feet at night.

I sprayed some oil and massaged directly to the area and it was all cleared within 20 mins!  I thought it works for just about everything else!! If the spray hadn't of worked it would have developed into mastitis!! Love this stuff! "
