It really makes me feel great to know My Boticario is helping people.
A customer wrote in to say this:
“As you know, I suffer with debilitating pain in my feet due to neuropathy from diabetes. For one week I tried the pain cream I usually use on one foot and I used My Boticario Magnesium Butter on the other. My Boticario Magnesium Butter was just as effective as my usual cream and it lasted about an hour longer! Thank you!”
I wanted to leave some information about the Magnesium Lotion I make and why it is so important for your body.
This started because I was going through some hormone issues with my doctor and I was doing HTC (we will talk about that in another post)
One of the things I was told was NOT take Tylenol or Ibuprofen. What?! That’s as normal as my morning coffee!
During this treatment I developed a migraine like I often do and I was ready to pop the Advil when I instead called my doctor. The EMT at the office, (omg! I have to tell you about my doctor and her staff!), suggested magnesium. It worked! It dulled the pain and I was able to continue my day. The wheels started turning in my brain and I started to check this out. Tada! Here we are!
With the toxic foods (yes, our foods in the United States are toxic) we don’t get the amounts of magnesium to meet our body’s needs. This creates a myriad of health issues.
Magnesium deficiency has been linked
to many conditions, some of which include:
* heart disease
* Alzheimer’s disease
* attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
One small study, reported in the Journal of Integrative MedicineTrusted Source, indicated that transdermal application of magnesium chloride on the arms and legs of people with fibromyalgia reduced symptoms, such as pain. Participants were asked to spray magnesium chloride four times on each limb, twice daily, for one month. Some people with fibromyalgia have too little magnesium in muscle cells. Most magnesium in the body is housed in either muscle cells or bone.
