Topical Magnesium1 is superb at making tight muscles relax; it is a cream that you rub into the skin over the tight muscles. Since magnesium is the mineral of relaxation, if you rub Topical Magnesium into a sleepless baby’s feet, it will help it stop yelling, sigh contentedly and fall into a lovely slumber. Ahhh. And Phew. It costs £24 for a tube from me. Contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
My clients call it Magic Cream. A couple of them decided to climb Mont Blanc and I persuaded them to take a tube of Topical Mag with them. In the mountain hut on the way up, all the climbers were snuggled in their bunks, with many complaints about stiff legs. So my clients popped open the Topical Mag and all the men rubbed the cream into their legs. The next morning, everyone was astonished that their legs felt completely fresh – and christened it New Leg Cream.
As a Z-Health practitioner, I spend much time helping people rewire their brains to reduce pain and dysfunction and improve performance. I know only too well that the only person who can break the pain cycle and improve performance is us, ourselves. If things get really bad, rubbing in Topical Magnesium helps the muscles let go and then the application of a few brain drills dig us out of a painful pit, avoiding the need for a treatment. Much better in every possible way. Whilst massage/chiropracty and so on is vital if bones have managed to get themselves out of place, when the problems are in the tissues, the much bigger benefit comes from our own brain sorting out the mess rather than someone else doing it for us, which leaves the nervous system confused as to how that happened and set upon returning things to how they were, thus continuing the cycle of pain.
Topical Magnesium contains Magnesium Sulphate – this is important. I have stocked and used Topical Mag for years now, and in recent years have not pushed the product because I thought it easy to get Mag creams here – Holland And Barrett stock one. Then someone came in to see me and part of the problem was a baby who would only sleep for one hour at a time then wake for a feed – exhausting. I like to start with the simple, so I advised rubbing a Mag cream into the baby’s feet – this did not work. So I investigated further and found that most mag creams we can get in the UK contain magnesium chloride – nothing like as effective as magnesium sulphate.
A tube of Topical Mag does last ages and is an essential part of the active person’s store cupboard. It’s certainly cheaper than most massages/trips to the osteopath – and is readily to hand, even half way up Mont Blanc.
