Re: 2017 study: desalinated water = lower serum mag

Just a couple nights ago, my husband and I watched an episode of the series Parched on the National Geographic Channel. It focused on the seawater desalination in Israel – something that we knew nothing about. There was no mention of desalination removing magnesium. By the way, I have read somewhere...

Re: Crazy symptoms, scared to death

Neurologist thinks Lyme or MS. Drew the D level (hydroxy 25 ) at my request and also a Lyme titre. Lyme takes 7 business days for results. If those are negative then I will have a lumbar puncture. I went for a massage last night which was horrifically painful but I felt good after, looser etc. toda...

Re: Crazy symptoms, scared to death

Neurologist today............ Will ask for the D test and hoping I didnt mess up any results by taking this supplements yesterday.

I have read many studies that indicated contrast is very toxic and I would like to opt out of it and just do a scan without. My question is, is contrast detrimenta...
