Magnesium and Seizures...
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Jamie,

I have lots of comments on this. First of all, magnesium MIGHT help with seizures- whether YOUR seizures will be improved or not, I don't know. But seizures CAN be related and since you are feeling 'funny' taking vitamin d, then it might be worth it to take magnesium regardless of whether it helps your seizures or not.

Next, please read my page on Vitamin D Therapy and follow the instructions to bring your levels up. I don't know how you got onto 2000 IU's per day, but it is about 1/3 to 1/4 the proper dosage to bring up levels of those who are deficient- and it may even make your levels go DOWN further because it's just such a ridiculously low dose.

Next, nutrients are not drugs and you don't go through 'withdrawals' when you stop taking them. You may become deficient again, and if your seizures are helped when you become magnesium replete, then going off could make your seizures become worse again simply because you become deficient again- but not from 'withdrawals'.

Also, as you are finding out with vitamin d, it's a BAD idea to take single nutrients and I absolutely don't recommend that you 'just' add magnesium to your regimen or you may get other problems because you've created other imbalances. If you are going to take magnesium and vitamin d, then I urge you to consider taking a HIGH quality multivitamin supplement pack with vitamins, minerals and omegas, such as Jigsaw Health's Essential Daily Packs.

These already have 5000 IU's of vitamin d and a bunch of high quality magnesium and so are my preferred choice in vitamins. Don't make the mistake of ignoring this or you are likely to cause other problems by doing so...
