Do to the fact, that I nave neither a thyroid, nor para-thyroids, I have been on certain supplements, that are at this time, because of symptoms associated with them questionable. In Germany, a pharmacist and many others told me I was not taking in enough magnesium but too much calcium, and this is why I had the symptoms, I had. I followed their advice and felt much better. But than I came back to the US and had my old symptoms back.
In the search for answers, I stumbled across this book, that seams to have exactly the answers I need and points out why everyone needs the info, bec. of our modern lifestyle, food etc. virtually all of us don't get enough magnesium. It points to the connections between certain more and more common disorders, illnesses.. etc. what relationship it has to magnesium vs. calcium and how much is right for each... I can only recommend reading it!
