Recently I received a magnesium sulfate IV with 3.5 grams of Mg sulfate.
Right before the IV, my balance was very poor and I moved very slowly (this is normal for me). Falling was very likely. In fact, I had already fallen backward just standing by the car.
Right after the IV, my balance was hugely improved and I was fairly steady on my feet. My walking speed had probably tripled. It was actually somewhat enjoyable to walk instead of just frustrating and scary.
This is similar to the walking improvement I've experienced many times during a strong niacin flush, but unlike the niacin flush walking improvement, it lasted a for hours.
When I've tried to get doctors to help me walk better, I couldn't help but think that I was not getting through to them regarding just how large the improvements which I experience from niacin flushes and also from strong Mg treatments. Sooo...I've started filming my walking before and during the niacin flush. And now, before and after the Magnesium IV. I have witnesses too.
Doctors typically won't give magnesium because their standard Mg test (serum Mg) will almost always come back "normal", even if the body stores are low in Mg.
The underestimated problem of using serum magnesium measurements to exclude magnesium deficiency in adults; a health warning is needed for "normal" results.
I have my ideas about how the Mg IV transformed my walking.
What do you guys think
