8 Warning Signs of Magnesium Deficiency
Hey guys.Axe here, founder of draxe.Today, i’m going to share with you eight warning signs that you have magnesium deficiency, and there are many symptoms of magnesium deficiency that a lot of people have.So then, think about this, there is a good chance that you have a health condition and if you just got more magnesium in your diet, it could be gone for good.There are people suffering with eight common conditions that if you just get more magnesium in your diet it is going to transform your health forever.
According to recent research, 80 of americans are magnesium deficient.So, you’ve got to get more magnesium in your diet or at least 80 of people do.The first warning sign that you are magnesium deficient is that if you have any form of a headache, whether it’s a tension headache or a migraine headache that’s a big warning sign and one of the reasons is that magnesium really helps in relaxing muscles, it helps with overall cellular function, and so again, magnesium is critical.If you have a headache, had any type of headache at all, consider getting more magnesium foods.
In your diet or taking a magnesium supplement, and at the end, i’ll share more with you about magnesium foods and supplements.The number two sign that you have a magnesium deficiency is if you get muscle cramps.Now, a lot of the times people think that that’s potassium and it can be, but it’s also magnesium.And so again, if you are an athlete or let’s say you’re laying sic in bed at night and you ever get muscle cramps or if you struggle with muscle cramps on a regular basis, you.
Are magnesium deficient.You really want to work on increasing both potassium intake and magnesium intake if you get muscle cramps.The third warning sign that you’re magnesium deficient is if you have osteoporosis or if you have osteopenia or any type of weak muscles or weak bones, or you get injured easily.You know magnesium is a major building block of your muscles.And listen to this, a lot of people will go and take a calcium supplement without even taking a magnesium supplement for your body to even use calcium.You have to have magnesium.
So again, magnesium, it’s critical for building strong bones.So, it’s essential that children are getting magnesium rich foods, adults’, especially aging women, are getting magnesium foods and supplements on a regular basis.The fourth warning sign that you are magnesium deficient is if you have diabetes or imbalanced blood sugar.If you tend to eat something and then afterwards you get really tired.In fact if you’re one of those people that hits the sort of two o’clock coma at work after lunch, that’s a big warning sign that you are magnesium deficient.
So, again if you have diabetes or you have low energy levels, or even have adrenal fatigue, those are warning signs that you’re not getting enough magnesium in your diet.The reason is that magnesium is a critical mineral for improving glucose absorption and really balancing out your blood sugar.You really have to have magnesium for cellular function.The fifth warning sign, you may have high blood pressure.So blood pressure issues, if you have high blood pressure on a blood pressure medication, magnesium has been shown to be one of the best natural remedies to naturally lower or balance out your blood.
Pressure.The sixth warning sign that you have a magnesium deficiency is if you struggle with insomnia or not being able to sleep at night, and that includes both not being able to fall asleep or stay asleep during the night or even waking up early on a consistent basis.You need magnesium for that.If you do struggle with that, the best time to take magnesium is with dinner or right before bed in the evening.The seventh warning sign you are magnesium deficient is if you struggle with anxiety.
And depression.In fact, magnesium has been shown to help calm the body, the muscles, and help improve mood.It is a vital mineral for overall mood.In fact one of the things i’ve recommended to patients over time with anxiety is taking magnesium on a daily basis and they’ve seen great results.And last but not least, would be muscle pain.That’s a sign that you’re magnesium deficient as well.Things like fibromyalgia.So muscle pain, fibromyalgia, those are warning signs.The reason is magnesium, even within minutes of taking it, it can start to relax your muscles.
Also why it helps with migraine headaches.That’s number eight.Then one other bonus warning sign you’re magnesium deficient is if you struggle with constipation.Constipation and irregular bowel movements is a major warning sign.So if you do struggle with constipation, magnesium, specifically magnesium citrate has great benefits in helping improve bowel movements.Now, let me tell you how to get more magnesium in your diet.Number one is through foods, specifically fruits, vegetables and sprouted nuts and seeds are a great source.Avocados are my number one recommendation for getting more magnesium in your diet.
Bananas are great as well, also even things like pumpkin seeds.If you want to learn more about the magnesium foods just go to my website draxe or google search online Axe magnesium foods and you can find my list of my top magnesium foods there as well.And last but not least, take a quality magnesium supplement.Now, the problem is most magnesium and mineral supplements out there today in multivitamins are made from rocks.Literally, rocks and mineral salts.You don’t want to take those.Take a magnesium chelate supplement that also has other cofactors in it like boron.And.
So again, i know that i personally take the axe naturals brand of magnesium.It’s a great brand you can check out there as well, online.And so again, guys, if you’re going to be healthy or if you have any one of those warning signs, you know that you are magnesium deficient, make sure that you get more magnesium in your diet and consider a magnesium supplement.Hey, if you’ve enjoyed this information make sure you’ve subscribe to the youtube page.I’m always giving more information on the top vitamins and minerals to help your body.

Achilles Tendonitis Natural Treatment Prevention Sock Doc
Hey.This is sock doc and today i’m going to talk about a common running injury called achilles tendinitis.This is an injury that many people suffer from if they’re training hard, if they’re racing a lot.It’s a pain in the lower part of your leg, right where your achilles tendon attaches to the heel of your bone.So your achilles tendon is actually an extension of your two calf muscles, your gastrocnemius and your soleus muscle, and they go down and form a tendon.Tendons attach muscles to bones and it’s called your.
Achilles tendon.We’ll just get right to it.Your achilles tendon is right here and many people will feel pain right where their achilles tendon attaches to the calcaneus, their heel bone.Now you can see right there i have a very little bump that i had from when i had some achilles tendinitis back in 19921993, when i was training hard in college.It’s the one time i actually got a cortisone shot right there in my heel bone and it basically calcified up.So to this day i still have a little bit of a bump.
Now some people might call that a heel spur and there’s actually a term called a pump bump, kind of a funny name, when that spur kind of flares up a little bit.There’s also a term called retrocalcaneal bursitis, which is when the bursa, which is underneath that achilles tendon flares up and you have bursitis, another type of inflammation, itis means inflammation, so bursitis inflammation of the bursa tendinitis inflammation of the tendon.Many people say that the pump bump, that swelling on the outside, the lateral part of your achilles is from scuffing against the back of a shoe.
Or a walking shoe.I don’t agree with that at all.Typically you have the achilles tendinitis or you have a calf issue resulting in a strain of the achilles tendon, and then that flaring up, that inflammation of the achilles causes you to approximate the distance between your heel and the shoe more, in other words you have less space, and that rubbing then creates the spur or the pump bump.Here’s the important thing though.As i’ve talked about in the other tutorials it’s always more important to diagnose why you have a problem rather than.
What exactly you have.Whether you want to call this achilles tendinitis, whether you want to call your pain a heel spur, a bone spur, retrocalcaneal bursitis, or a pump bump, ultimately it really doesn’t matter.Diagnosing what you have does very little, if anything, to fix the problem.So we’re going to diagnose why you have it and that’s the important thing, to hopefully prevent it from happening again and recover from this injury faster than you would otherwise.One of the sock doc rules, as you know, is we don’t stretch any injuries.
Stretching pulls muscle fibers away from one another and when you want to heal muscle fibers you want to approximate those back together.Even physical therapist today are starting to use methods such as scraping methods, very painful methods, when they go down the belly of a muscle and try to line those fibers up.And that’s now proven that lining those fibers up and approximating these fibers helps to heal injuries.It’s actually, in my opinion, one of the most effective ways you can heal an injury.And this is also known as trigger point therapy or origin insertion.
Technique.So it’s very painful and i’m going to show you how to do that right now because the achilles tendon is an extension, again, of your calf muscle.So we’re going to look for an injury here on the calf and you’re going to especially look right here, right where the meaty part of your calf muscle starts to narrow down and come to the more narrow part of your calf and then ultimately into your achilles tendon.You’re going to look for tender spots, like right in there and push with your thumb.
See what’s tender, poke around.You can squeeze with your thumb and index finger too, down this soleus, the lower part of your calf, down to your achilles here, and look for any tender spots.And if you find them either hold them or rub them out in a circular motion.They’re going to be very tender, very hot, compared to the other side that might not be injured and you can see what might really be painful.A lot of runners have tender calves anyway and sometimes it’s because there’s an injury that’s starting.
And you can possibly prevent it if you start to work those out.So you’re going to work those out.Sometimes they’ll wash away, we say, they sort of dissolve and feel better.And they might not, but they hopefully feel better the next day or even right now.If you work them out a little bit you might notice that as you walk or run more they don’t hurt as bad.Typically, as you may know, with achilles tendinitis, if you have it, it hurts more when you walk or run up hill because of the plantar flexion.
Aspect of using your calves while you’re doing that activity.Another little device i like to use sometimes on people is the stick.You might have seen these at running stores or expos.It’s got these little movable beads in the middle and you hold it like this and then go up the back side of your leg so you’re working it up and down your calf like that, especially over, obviously, the tender area.I’m putting pressure towards my leg and my leg pressure towards the stick and you’re rolling that up and.
Down.This is a nice little instrument to use for hamstring issues and calf issues where you can get right in there.So look for those injuries in the calf.Second, remember, no stretching.And third, as usual, with any injury, as i’ve always said, no orthotics.Let’s get off those orthotics and those built up shoes.The more your foot can stay closer to the ground, the more you can walk barefoot, the more you can use minimalist shoes with a very low heel to forefoot drop, a wide toe box, and very little support or.
Cushion, the more you’ll strengthen your feet and get over your injury quicker and prevent other injuries from hopefully occurring.But there’s other reasons why injuries can occur just other than bad footwear and one of those reasons, again, as i’ve talked about before, is when you overtrain.Training at too high of a heart rate anaerobically, training too often, racing too often, or too high of stress levels which could even be from eating a poor diet, or from too much emotional stress like if you’re working too many hours, family stress, or any other mental.
Stress you might have that’s basically too much that you can handle.That tends to stress our bodies out and injuries result from that because there are certain links between stress levels in the body and cortisol levels, which are one of your stress hormones, like adrenaline, and these tend to provoke injuries in people.It happens basically from the way that they work with muscles, the relationship between your hormones and muscles.And i talk more about this on the sock doc website about eating better, about eating more appropriately, no hydrogenated fats, low sugar in your.
Diet, and staying away from things like msg, refined foods and monitoring stress levels, training aerobically rather than anaerobically, using heart rate monitors and that sort of thing.So if you’re training properly, if you’re eating well, if your stress levels are in check, and you have the proper equipment, in this case, with a running injury, that usually just means footwear, and if your feet are strong from wearing the proper footwear, and not wearing orthotics and walking barefoot often, you’re going to probably never end up with an injury like achilles tendinitis, or a pump bump, or a retrocalcaneal.
Bursitis, or a heel spur, or a bone spur, whatever you want to call it, and your feet are going to feel very strong and you’re going to have strong calves and lower legs and great balance.The other thing is, other than no stretching, no orthotics, is with the entire sock doc philosophy make sure you always stay off that injury, especially in the acute phase.It might be okay to ice it a little bit if you need to settle down the injury, if that makes it feel better, to cut.
Down on some of the inflammation.But ultimately, to heal the injury, you need to look distant from the injury, as i’ve talked about in the other tutorials like plantar fasciitis and iliotibial band injuries.In this case, stay off your achilles.Don’t be pushing around right where that achilles inserts into your calcaneus, your heel bone.Go up towards the calf.You might even have to go all the way up towards where your calf actually comes over to the other side, behind your knee bone, the tendons of the calf.
Muscles up here where it’s closer to your hamstring.So focus on that area behind your leg, and not too much on the achilles tendon area because often pushing on the achilles and doing any strong techniques there, the trigger point therapy, or using the stick actually on your achilles, will most likely just inflame it.You should be able to settle down a lot of it, hopefully all of it, by addressing the muscle further up.But don’t forget to address why you have the problem.And again, it might not be from the shoes.It could be from over training and.

Heel Spur Treatment How to Avoid Heel Spur Surgery Seattle Podiatrist
Hi.I want to talk for a few minutes about heel spurs, mainly because i keep getting patients coming into my office that have been told they have a heel spur and they think they need surgery for it.So, before we talk about heel spurs, we have to spend a minute talking about the condition, plantar fasciitis, which is the most common cause of heel pain in the foot.Now, the plantar fascia is this thick ligament that runs from here up to your toes.If your foot is flattening.
More than it should, as it flattens, it gets longer.And as it gets longer, if you look at these bottom pictures, that plantar fascia goes from quite loose to quite tight.So, it tugs back here on the heel and causes pain in that region.Now, over many years, tugging on that plantar fascia can result in a heel spur.There’s a law of physiology called wolff’s law that says, if you tug on bone for a long enough period of time, you’ll develop a spur here.So, you have a lot of patients that have heel pain.They go somewhere, maybe an urgent care.
, and get an xray, and it’s seen that they have a heel spur.They’re told that the heel spur causes the pain.But in fact, the spur doesn’t cause any pain.The spur is just a reaction to the bone.What’s causing the pain is the tight plantar fascia.So, if you’ve been told you have a heel spur and you’re told you need surgery for, get a second, third or fourth opinion.You probably do not need surgery.This problem rarely, rarely needs surgery.What we do need to do is to take tension off of the plantar fascia so it is not tugging.
So hard on this region.And there are some simple ways to do that.You want to wear good shoes.So, if you just go to our website and do a search for shoes, you’ll find our list of recommended shoes.We update it every year.There are athletic shoes, basketball shoes, hiking boots, sandals and dress shoes any type of shoe you’re looking for.Number two is, we want to make sure we’ve got good arch support under the foot to stop that foot from going down.By doing so, you take tension off the plantar fascia, and then.
It doesn’t matter if you have a heel spur.You won’t have pain down there.So, this is a good overthecounter support.If you just go to our website and do a search for, home care or self care of heel pain, you’ll find our recommendation on the best overthecounter arch supports for heel pain and plantar fasciitis.You’ll find some for athletic shoes.You’ll find others that are made for dress shoes.And then if that’s not enough, you’d see a podiatrist.There are a lot of ways to treat.
Heel pain.Again, on the website, we go over that in great detail.I don’t want to oversimplify this right now.But one of the things we may end up doing is making you a custom orthotic that grabs the arch tighter so it takes more tension off of the plantar fascia.Again, by stopping that tugging, in most cases, you can eliminate the pain in that region.Or at least it plays a big role in helping people get over the problem.Again, i don’t want to oversimplify that.There are a lot of different treatments for.
HEAL PLANTAR FASCIITIS WITH 3 EXERCISES
Hi welcome to our three daily exercises to heal plantar fasciitis some of you know and some of you don’t, so what is plantar fasciitis it’s the most common cause of heel pain chances are you’ve had it if you’ve felt pain in your heel.I’ve been suffering from it on and off since running an excruciatingly long marathon, and i’ve been trying almost everything to fix it so i know what i’m talking about plantar fasciitis refers to the plantar fascia the plantar fascia is the ligament that connects your heel bone to your toes.
It supports the arch of your foot if you strain your plantar fascia, it gets weak, swollen and inflamed then your heel or the bottom of your foot hurts when you stand or walk.If you have it, you’ll feel the pain straight out of bed when you take that first step plantar fasciitis is common with middleaged people and people who stand on their feet a lot.If you’re part of these two groups, you’ve come to the right place i’m going to present 3 exercises you can do every day to heal plantar fasciitis.
I recommend you do these exercises first thing in the morning and then two to three times a day.They’ve worked miracles for me and they’ll do the same for you let me introduce the first exercise stretch your calves this is the position you want to reproduce place your right leg behind your left leg gently bend your left leg forward, keep your right knee straightand your right heel on the ground hold the stretch for 15 to maximum 30 seconds and release.Reverse the position of your legs and repeat.
Repeat 23 times a day the second exercise is very simple the tennis ball exercise get yourself a tennis ball while seated, roll your foot back and forth over it.Do this for one minute and then switch the third exercise is the towel stretch fold a towel lengthwise to make an exercise strap sit down, and place the folded towel under the arches of both feet grab the ends of the towel with both handsand gently pull the top of your feet toward you hold for 15 to 30 seconds, and repeat three times.
Top 3 Exercises for Plantar Fasciitis
Today we are going to do the top 3 exercises for plantar fasciitis.First we are going to talk about what plantar fasciitis is.If you break down plantar fasciitis, the word plantar means the bottom surface of the foot, right here.Fascia, like myofascial pain syndrome, what fascia is is the loose covering around muscle and tendons in the body.If you ever eat chicken and you take off the skin, there is that thin membrane surrounding the actual meat of the chicken.That is fascia.You have a really thick.
Fascia on the underside of your foot.That is the plantar fascia.Fasciitis, that last itis, what that means, itis means inflammation.So dermatitis, appendicitis, they are inflammation of the skin and appendix respectively.Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of that fascia on the underside of the foot.It happens a lot with running.It also happens a lot with people who are overweight and stand on their feet for long periods.It is pretty painful condition that we see a lot.What will happen is the person will usually have very.
Specific pain right here on the calcaneus.That is where the plantar fascia connects to.The 3 things that we normally do in the are this.The first is you can take a roll or a coke can works well or any sort of cold can.Because with plantar fasciitis meaning inflammation, you want to use ice to calm it down.One of the common exercises we will do is just have a person start on their heel then roll it forward the whole way along the plantar fascia, the whole way along the plantar surface of the foot.You can do that.
For a minute or two.Pretty simple.The second exercise that we do is a common condition that accompanies plantar fasciitis is something called hallux rigidus.It is a big fancy term that means that the big toe, your first toe, cannot bend back adequately.So what happens is the person is walking through and they are walking and they are pushing off.When they strike their heel and they go to roll through, they don’t have that extension, they don’t have that movement, the range of motion with their big toe.So another thing we want to do is.
Stretch that.What that will do is take pressure off of the plantar fasciitis as the person is walking or as they are running.What we do is sit figure 4, grab the big toe and pull it back towards you.30 second hold and in the , we do 3 of those.The second is a big toe stretch or the great toe stretch.You should feel that right through here and if you do have plantar fasciitis, you may feel it the whole way back to your heel.The third and final exercise is a plantar fascia stretch.What we do is it is very similar to.
The great toe stretch but you stretch all 5 toes back at the same time.You grab a bath towel and anchor your heel.Into the towel then pull back.It is pretty simple.The same thing, you should feel a stretch all along the plantar fascia, all along the underside of your foot.30 second hold, 3 times.What you can do, a little trick is you can anchor the towel on your knee so you are not having to pull up the whole time and end up with some other sort of problem.
