There are so many reasons to lead an organic lifestyle. Vitamins and minerals are being stripped from our bodies when it tries to fight off the chemicals and toxins we ingest. We also cannot forget about the chemicals we put onto our skin through lotions, oils, and cosmetics. The skin has no filter, so what it absorbs goes straight in! The article below talks about magnesium deficiency and how super important it is to have this mineral in our diets and keep it there!

“(NaturalNews) The latest government study shows a staggering 68% of Americans do not consume the recommended daily intake of magnesium. Even more frightening are data from this study showing that 19% of Americans do not consume even half of the government’s recommended daily intake of magnesium.(1) This article is an excerpt from the book “Transdermal Magnesium Therapy” by Mark Sircus AC., OMD.
‘Studies show that as many as half of all Americans do not consume enough magnesium. Magnesium deficits have been tied to allergies, asthma, attention deficit disorder, anxiety, heart disease, muscle cramps and other conditions.'(2) – Massachusetts Institute of Technology
One of the great challenges in medicine today is to understand the complexity of causes that leads to the breakdown of health and the formation of serious disease. There are so many factors that simultaneously impinge on our physical systems that it is truly a daunting task to ascertain what is causing what. During this past century the physical environment that surrounds us has gotten incredibly toxic and even the food most people eat acts to destroy rather than nourish. There are people and organizations that hide behind this complexity of causes thus making it impossible to prove anymore what is harming our children and us, what is causing autism, why certain kids fall down dead after being vaccinated and others not.
Magnesium deficiency is a health problem of first cause. Magnesium is a nutritional element that is dangerously low today. Because of its essential role as a foundational building block of cell physiology, we have a huge health problem that allopathic medicine is dragging its feet to address. Populations in the first world are dangerously deficient and are actually starving for magnesium. Doctors are missing a huge opportunity to help their patients when they ignore the increasing deficiency of magnesium in them. We are familiar with the malnourishment of third world populations and do not expect to see this in the west. The clinical impact of magnesium deficiency is huge and can be tied into the majority of clinical situations. …”
