Magnesium, Cannabis a serious double act for diabetes.

Cannabis is bizarrely still controversial, despite its ubiquitous use for recreation and medical uses in many enlightened countries, it just seems that it’s still a red rag for certain kinds of people, still a subject certain kinds of newspapers and other media to panic and become hysterical about and for certain kinds of politicians to frighten usually older people with claiming if they allow its use the world will go to hell in handcart.

It’s no coincidence that the major pharmaceutical companies rather than embrace it, universally lobby against it. Their concern isn’t your health, it’s your wallet.

One of the worlds leading advocates about magnesium is Dr Mark Sircus and he has this to say about magnesium and cannabis;

“Magnesium chloride is a potent mineral medicine, it is safe and incredibly fast-acting, as is marijuana. When magnesium is combined with cannabinoid medicine we dramatically increase the medical horsepower we are applying and can expect superior results. For many conditions, using both together will yield results much greater than when using either alone. Magnesium is the lamp of life and without it we are toast! Cannabinoids tap into communication on cellular and intracellular levels like nothing else does, orchestrating changes in people not only on physical levels but also on emotional, mental and spiritual planes of existence”

There is established medical opinion supporting the use of cannabinoid medication and transdermal magnesium chloride as a powerful alternative to traditional anti-diabetes medicine, both as an adjunct to existing treatment and also as a complete alternative to those treatments.

Inflammation plays a key role in a set of disorders that include type-2 diabetes, obesity, and heart disease—collectively called the metabolic syndrome (or Syndrome X). Dr. Steve Shoelson, a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School has focused squarely on inflammation. Epidemiologists have found that patients with type-2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease have slightly elevated levels of inflammatory markers in their bloodstream.

In another report by Dr. Andrzej Mazur said, “Magnesium deficiency induces a systemic stress response by activation of neuro endocrinological pathways. Magnesium deficiency contributes to an exaggerated response to immune stress and oxidative stress is the consequence of the inflammatory response.”

Magnesium improves and helps correct insulin sensitivity, which is the fundamental defect that characterizes pre-diabetes, metabolic syndrome and even full blown diabetes and heart disease. An intracellular enzyme called tyrosine kinase requires magnesium to allow insulin to exert its blood-sugar-lowering effects. In several studies, daily oral magnesium supplementation substantially improved insulin sensitivity by 10% and reduced blood sugar by 37%.

This numbers alone will actually resolve many early stages of diabetes without resorting to conventional medicines, The Magnesium Guru believe that anyone who has been diagnosed as pre-diabetic from an A1CL (fasting) blood test should begin using transdermal magnesium immediately and test again for two months.

They should of course make the dietary changes suggested by the doctors as well, all diabetes treatment requires lifestyle change, by adding magnesium to those changes is a viable alternative to conventional medication and the associated side effects.

If it’s available in your area then medical cannabinoid medication will only enhance the benefits of transdermal magnesium.
