Low Blood Pressure From Taking Magnesium

by Karen
(Bossier City Louisiana)

I normally have low blood pressure, (107/60), but when I take 200mg of magnesium with vitamin D3, my blood pressure reads 89/60, pulse 70. I feel very weak. I am 62, and have MVP (Mitral Valve Prolapse) syndrome with mild regurgitation, and have all the symptoms that go along with it, anxiety is the worst of all, so I wanted to take magnesium because of the calming effect it has.


My question is, what kind of magnesium could I take that won't effect my blood pressure, because I feel like I really need it with mvp.

Thanks,
Karen

Probably none!
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Karen,

If you get low blood pressure and feel horrible after taking magnesium, then you just might not be able to take magnesium.

It sounds like you have SEVERE Adrenal Gland Fatigue and that's the reason why your blood pressure is so low and gets lower with such a slight amount of magnesium.

So, before you'll be able to take magnesium, you might need to address both your adrenal gland fatigue and the underlying reasons that you are experiencing such severe adrenal gland fatigue, such as:

* Emotional stress
* Eating processed foods and sugar
* Gluten Sensitivity
* Intestinal Candida
* Low Blood Sugar
* H Pylori Bacteria
* Other intestinal parasites
* Environmental Toxins

etc, etc, etc.

Low Blood Pressure
by: Karen

Thanks Kerri for responding so quickly.I've been dealing with this problem for four years now, and you make more sense than all of these doctors I've seen. All they want to do is hand out anti-depressants which I don't won't.

That's not getting to the root of the problem. That's more like a band aid. I have waves of depression maybe three times a day, sluggish and so tired, and keep getting bladder infections even after being on antibiotics for six months. I believe like you said it might be Adrenal Fatigue syndrome, and with low blood pressure, I don't think I'm getting enough oxygen to my brain causing waves of anxiety or depression.

I just feel sleepy all the time. My body is lacking something. I've been using Bio-identical hormones thinking maybe that I needed them because of being post menopausal, but can't tell if they are helping or not.I just want to be myself again.

Thanks...

Chronic Bladder infections
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Karen,

Be sure to note also that chronic bladder infections are nearly ALWAYS a problem of Gluten Sensitivity because chronic damage from gluten destroys the immune system in your digestive tract responsible for the patrolling of your 'mucosa' of which the bladder lining is a part. This part of your immune system is called the 'Mucosal Associated Lymphatic Tissue' or MALT if you want to learn more about it, and it's primarily housed in your digestive tract believe it or not.

Also, if you are on chronic antibiotics, PLEASE PLEASE be sure to read the pages on Quinolone Antibiotics to see why taking any of the quinolones, which are commonly given for UTI's, is asking for BIG BIG trouble.

In any case, I URGE you to look into a natural substance called D Mannose Supplements which can completely eliminate urinary tract infections in a day or two without antibiotics. The discovery of D-Mannose was actually what got me into natural medicine in the first place. I had the first UTI of my life and I though, "There's GOT to be something other than antibiotics for this." and my research brought me to D-Mannose which took away a raging UTI by the next day! No antibiotics necessary.

Then, for your fatigue and depression, I can almost guarantee that you have SEVERE Vitamin D Deficiency. Get your level checked and follow the instructions on the Vitamin D Therapy page.

Low Blood Pressure
by: Karen

Thanks Kerri, I will get my Vitamin D checked, and also I will try the D Mannose Supplement that you suggested. I was really worried about taking antibiotics, (Macrodantin) for six months but felt like I had no choice, so thank you so much..I'm going to watch my diet, and not eat anything that has gluten to see if that will help..

And one more thing, I took vitamin B12 1000 mg. today and I feel pretty good. Maybe that is another problem that I was lacking.

PS..So glad I found this wonderful web-site, and was able to get some great info from you because you just don't know how long I've been searching for answers.

Best Regards,

Karen

Low Blood Pressure
by: Karen

Hi Kerri, I wrote in earlier about not being able to take magnesium because of low blood pressure. My question is, I take 5000mg of vitamin D3, is it true that magnesium is what helps to absorb Vit. D3?
If so, I can take 100mg magnesium oxide which doesn't seem to bother me. Then I've read magnesium Oxide is poorly absorbed.

Low Blood Pressure
by: Karen

Hi Kerri,

I started taking 5000mg of vitamin D3 for about a week now. My neck and shoulder muscles were aching really bad a couple of days ago, so I was thinking maybe it was vitamin D3, so I stopped taking it, and today it feels much better. I probably need to have my levels checked, or maybe go with 1000mg instead. I'm one of those that hates going to the doctor.

And also,not being able to take Magnesium because of having low blood pressure, I'm sure taking vitamin D3 uses up what little magnesium that I have. Is there a topical type of magnesium that I could use?...Thanks

Re: Vitamins for my 4 year old w/ Apraxia
by: Erin C.

Our four year old son has apraxia of speech and cognitive delays. He was a healthy, normally developing infant and toddler until about fifteen months of age when he began regressing. We have been to several different doctors, none of which seem open to the idea of more than a multivitamin. Our son is very social, outgoing, happy and has been responding well to speech and OT. Recently, we took it upon ourselves to research and decided to take him off the vitamin supplements and give him D3 - Omega 3 combo supplement. We saw increased speech and focus! QUESTION: What is the correct dosage? D3 is 1000 IU and Omega is 2200 IU daily. I am considering Vitamin E and Magnesium supplements as well, but not sure if I can mix these (four) together and what the correct dosage would be for those? Also...am wondering about a good food vitamin for him? He is a picky eater and does not get veggies or fruits very often...and he hates MILK. Ugh! We are very encouraged by his progress on the D3 and Omega and want to do all we can for him. All vitamins have to be tasteless powder or citrus type liquids because he won't take pills.

Thank you in advance!
Erin C.

You should visit the DAN website
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

You should visit the Defeat Autism Now website and you can look in your area to potentially find a doctor than can help you more effectively. While I'm not suggesting that your son has autism or even that he might have it, I'm only saying that the DAN doctors have nutritional protocols for children with cognitive delays and/or some of the same symptoms that your son seems to be experiencing and that they would be better qualified to provide recommendations on protocols and dosages for supplements for children than I would be.
