Topical Magnesium Chloride and autoimmune diseases

Lee Harold

“Magnesium literally puts the chill on inflammation especially when used transdermally.”

So many people these days either have an autoimmune disease, or at least know someone with one. Simply put, autoimmune disease is associated with a malfunctioning immune system causing the body to attack its own tissues. When the immune system malfunctions, the body mistakes its own tissues as foreign producing immune cells and autoantibodies that target and attack those tissues, this is referred to as an autoimmune reaction, which can cause inflammation and tissue damage.

There are more than 80 types of autoimmune diseases with symptoms depending on which part of the body is affected. Autoimmune disorders can target blood vessels, skin, cartilage and specific organs. Characteristics typically associated with autoimmune disease include inflammation, pain, muscle aches, fatigue and a low grade fever. The first sign of an autoimmune disease is usually inflammation.

I have a close relative who is living with an autoimmune disease and I can see what a struggle it can sometimes be just to do the normal everyday things that we all take for granted, like simply blinking or breathing! Her condition has affected her eyes, airways and lungs as well as being recently diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. She has struggled through numerous bouts of pneumonia and pleurisy and Specialists have likened her airways, lungs and breathing difficulties to Cystic Fibrosis. But she is a fighter and doesn’t let her condition stop her from enjoying the things she loves doing such as teaching, travelling and gardening. As a teacher, just being on playground duty on a windy day can cause her problems and she often says she must look like a crazy person standing there with her sunnies on, her hoodie up and her hat on top, but you do what you have to do just to keep going!!

Since starting work at Amazing Oils in April and learning about the wonderful anti-inflammatory pain relief our Magnesium Oils brings, I made sure that my relative is using our Magnesium daily and she assures me that the roll-on gel is definitely helping relieve the aches and pains associated with her RA, allowing her to have much improved sleep. By just using our Magnesium Chloride daily, she is also helping to relieve quite a few of her other symptoms, including her breathing, which all helps to make living with an Autoimmune condition, easier.

In my role as “Director of First Impressions” (a fancy name for Receptionist), I love talking to people daily about how our Magnesium Chloride can help change their lives and to hear their success stories, so being able to help my family is just an added bonus!

A quote from Dr. David Perlmutter:

"This chronic inflammatory response breaks down healthy tissue in a misdirected attempt at repair and healing. Doctors who specialize in rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, lupus and other autoimmune disorders are very familiar with what happens when the body goes to war with itself. These diseases demonstrate a direct inflammatory attack against healthy cells in such places as the joints, nerves and connective tissue. Magnesium is central to immunocompetence and plays a crucial role in natural and adaptive immunity."
