Magnesium vs. Migraines

I’ve done a lot of reading lately about magnesium deficiency and migraines. Apparently with Mg deficiency it’s not as easy as getting your blood drawn to get an answer. Not only do I exhibit the symptoms of Magnesium deficiency, but Mg is what the Lyme spirochetes use to build their biofilms- therefore very likely for my Mg supply to be depleted. So i’ve decided to start supplementing because despite eating gluten free and being on 2 prescriptions medications for migraines (which I never wanted to do in the first place), i still get them, a lot. I’m taking a chance here since I don’t actually know if Lyme is active in my blood and will take advantage of the Mg or dormant in my tissues and leave it alone. I also read about a protocol of treating chronic Lyme with Magnesium Malate, Selenium & Vitamin B6 so I’m a little confused about how this works anyways. Anyone know anything about Lyme & Magnesium, or taking Mg supplements?

Today is my 4th day on chlorella. I’ve been taking 3g a day so far (15 tablets throughout the day). I’m not sure what kind of relief or changes I should expect, but I felt more energized the past 2 days. I’m gonna increase to 4g today and slowly progress to 6g a day. I think that sounds like a good idea?

These thunderstorms for 2 weeks straight need to stop. Every day it rains my joints feel worse and worse. Last night I couldn’t even walk up a staircase on my own. That is such a discouraging feeling. The sunshine was a relief today, hopefully it sticks around 🌞

Lavender Oil

I made a spray with water and lavender oil that I use on my pillow at night to de-stress and help me sleep but tonight I put a few drops of the oil in a hot bath. I heard it helps aches and pains and muscle stiffness and given that rainy days make all the worse I thought it’d be a good idea. And it was, ill probably make a habit out of it.

Educational Interview: Ronald D. Whitmont, MD

This interview features questions I have always sought to know the true answers to such as "How do we know when we are getting better or just in a dormant stage of Lyme disease?", "Is it really the Lyme disease organism that makes a patient so sick, or a patient’s own immune system that was dysfunctional to begin with?", "What form of therapy do you recommend for chronic LD?" - any many more.
