Can I Get Magnesium Through My Food?

by Paula
(Brazil)

I would be interested to know which food contain natural magnesium? I would rather cook those food, I think it is better than take hundreds of pills. Also I would like to know what is the role of magnesium in our body. Where it is going and how it improves our health?


Motivation to introduce something in my daily diet comes from knowledge, if I don't know where it is improving most likely I will not take it. I am also concerned that there are many doctors that claim to be an alternative to Big Pharma but when we go to see such alternative doctors they come up with pills as well.

What is the difference between alternative doctors from Big Pharma doctors? None, in my opinion, It has just shifted the money to another kind of industry, the alternative medicine industry that is profiting instead.

Alternative for me is rather different. It is a doctor that is able to recommend changes in my food diet that can balance my intake of magnesium, selenium and other useful elements.

Thanks in advance for your attention,

Yours Sincerely,

Paula Coppede

Hi Paula,

I have provided dozens of pages of education on magnesium on my site and I have NEVER recommended that anyone 'just go take some pills' without understanding why they are taking them or what they are for. If you would like to see the information on magnesium to learn about it then please read the MANY MANY pages on magnesium on my site and the MANY references to other resources on magnesium that I recommend such as the books:

Magnesium Medicine

and

Transdermal Magnesium The Book


So, when you say that you think that alternative doctors shouldn't make money, then what you are saying is that YOU want help from doctors with dozens of years of education for free- and you want those doctors to be poor and not be able to work in their business so that they can help people.

Nice attitude.


Well, if YOU want to work for free, then you go ahead and do so. But those of us in the alternative health professions work hard and prefer not to live on the streets in a cardboard shack where we can't help anyone, so thank you for telling me that we don't deserve to make money, I beg to differ.

By the way, both those books above that I recommended are also by an 'alternative' doctor who is making money off of them. So, I suggest that you DON'T buy either one of those otherwise you will be supporting his evil plot to make money and educate people about their health.

Good luck with your health and good day to you...

Thanks for your Tips Ms.Knox.
I am not suggesting doctors should work for free. I am just suggesting that by eating foods with magnesium I will spend less money than buying pills with it.
If you come from a country that taxes its people just like the most rich european country and suddenly you don't have access to education, transport and health services than you start understanding why I am not happy with the prices I have to pay to get these services.

Best Regards,

Paula

I've discussed this
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Paula,

I'm all for people getting their magnesium from their food. If you can do that, that is WONDERFUL and I advocate it highly and have discussed getting magnesium from food many many times to people who have asked the same question as you.

However, many if not most of the people who are coming to this site are showing severe symptoms of magnesium deficiency which is a sign that they are SEVERELY deficient.

When this is the case, it will be nearly impossible to get enough magnesium in foods in order to resolve this deficiency and that is why I recommend magnesium supplements - for those who need them.

Personally, I don't take magnesium supplements and not everyone does. I do not believe that people who don't need extra magnesium need to even take magnesium supplements at all. But getting enough magnesium in food, in general, will NOT correct a deficiency.


There are MANY sites on the internet that will give you the magnesium content of foods, however, if you prefer to get your magnesium through foods.
