Vitamin B6
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Nancy,

That's definitely a strange reaction. I would have no idea if you are making your deficiency worse, but I have a few ideas that might help you solve this problem.

First off, if you've not tried epsom salt baths you can see if that will help you. You can see my page on Epsom Salt Uses for more information. This is similar to using transdermal magnesium, so may have the same effect.

Next, you may have intestinal parasites that are predisposing you to loose stools. You should not be getting loose stools simply from eating food high in fiber. People who eat whole food raw vegan diets probably get twice the fiber that you are getting and don't get loose stools. Fiber should actually regulate bowels so that loose stools firm up and constipated people become less constipated. If you think about large primates like gorillas, too, they eat something like 20 pounds a day of fibrous leaves and nuts and they don't suffer from loose stools either.

So a reaction of loose stools to increased fiber is not a normal reaction and may be due to intestinal parasites. I recommend that you take a look at the Intestinal Pathogen Test that I offer. I do NOT recommend getting tested through your doctor because tests done by 'regular' labs are NOTORIOUSLY inaccurate and could give you a false sense that you do NOT have intestinal parasites when it comes back negative.

You could also have Gluten Sensitivity that is causing irritation and/or inflammation to your bowels causing this tendency towards loose stools. Getting on a gluten free diet and eliminating any parasites that you have may solve this problem.


Oh, and also a Vitamin B6 deficiency can lead to magnesium deficiency since B6 is required in order to absorb magnesium.

Thanks for all the advice. I will try the gluten free diet and the test. I have tried the epsom salts with the same result. If I have a severe deficiency, which I'm pretty sure I do, how long do you think it might take to see some kind of results? It's already been a week and I don't see any improvement.

Hi Nancy,

If you can't get any magnesium into you and you are magnesium deficient, then it will take forever to 'get results'. If you are 'only' going to do the gluten free diet, then I don't know how long it will take. It can take months to begin absorbing again because you are having to heal your digestive tract. And if you have parasites, then you may not fix this issue.

So, getting results will depend upon a lot of issues and what your problem is...

Magnesium
by: Anonymous

I had magnesium absorption problems, but they went off when i started the vitamin k2 with my vitamin D3. If you find out you got one deficiency, you got alteast 1 more, but more like 3 or more nutrient deficiencies. Vitamin K, specially k2 interacts positive with your gut flora.

I suppose your bacteria flora is out of control. Therefore d3&k2 is possibly very helpful in this case. Probiotic supplements could help a little, but you got to fix your gut flora by getting the nutrients your body lacks.

Take vitamin D3 with vitamin k2 and magnesium and try that [like in our Vitamin D Absorption Pack].

You don't drink the Epson salts but put it in your bath. The magnesium will absorb through your skin. At least a cupful in a small bath.
