Glymphatic System, Alzheimer's, Multiple Sclerosis, Strokes, Brain Injuries and CranioSacral Therapy
This weeks Washington Post had an excellent article about scientific research of the glymphatic system of the brain and how it may help understand Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis, strokes and traumatic brain injuries. Quote from the article: "the glymphatic system is like a dishwasher for the brain. The brain is very active....and so it produces a lot of junk that needs to be cleaned out.” Read about the study by clicking on this article link.
This past January I received advanced training applying CranioSacral Therapy techniques for the brain and spinal cord. The structures mentioned in this article are addressed.

Do you consume caffeine, processed food, sugar, alcohol, or sweat when you exercise? These are only a few of the factors that may decrease your magnesium levels which in turn may affect hundreds of functions of the body including muscle pain, insomnia and headaches.
According to Web MD: "Magnesium is required for the proper growth and maintenance of bones. Magnesium is also required for the proper function of nerves, muscles, and many other parts of the body. In the stomach, magnesium helps neutralize stomach acid and moves stools through the intestine."
You've probably heard about the importance of getting enough vitamin D and those of us in the northern states most likely don't get enough in the winter. "Magnesium is essential for absorption and metabolism of vitamin D and calcium."
Some possible symptoms of a lack of magnesium include the following:
Food sources high in magnesium include dark leafy greens, nuts, seeds, fish, beans, whole grains, avocados, yogurt, bananas, dried fruit, dark chocolate. In fact, my naturopathic doctor told me chocolate cravings may be a clue the body is searching for magnesium!
Epsom salt baths and magnesium glycinate are other options for incorporating more magnesium into your routine. (Please consult a physician for all medical advice.)
One last note: because it may act as a laxative, if you start getting too much magnesium into your diet, your stools will become loose.
Another great article about low magnesium levels may be found on the Wellness Mama website.
