Natural and easily-accessible support for stress/trauma
When we are stressed and/or traumatized, it can be difficult to trust our intuition. This is because the physical symptoms of stress and trauma can confuse us.
We need all the help we can get!
So, according to science, what is supportive during times of stress and trauma?
Importance of Magnesium
It is important in the human body that it is involved in over 600 cellular reactions. Medical sources also share that 50-68% of American adults are magnesium-deficient.
It has been found that trauma depletes cellular magnesium levels*. And that a supplemented dose of magnesium has been found to reduce fear and anxiety responses. It has even been nicknamed “nature’s valium” and the “ultimate chill pill.”
When we feel stressed or traumatized, we tend to feel that others don’t understand us.
This can lead to us pulling back from others and alienating ourselves. And the isolation measures required during the pandemic haven’t helped either.
What is Homeopathy?
It has been identified that magnesium carries the energy of preserving relationships and connections. So not only does it provide support for anxiety-based disorders, but it also carries the energetic pattern of connection!
We all need connection, physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. When we have a connection physically, it reduces stress and trauma within our nervous systems.
Try increasing foods in your diet with high levels of magnesium. These include avocados, nuts, seeds, and whole grains. I don’t eat gluten grains, so my favorite whole grain is black rice. It is high in antioxidants and fiber and has a nutty flavor.
I have also benefitted from magnesium supplementation for many years.
One of my favorite ways is transdermal – by rubbing magnesium cream into my skin before bed at night to help me relax and sleep more soundly. Try it! Magnesium taken internally or transdermally will reduce your stress levels and the effects of trauma, allowing you to tune into your intuition more easily.
Note: Magnesium supplementation can be problematic for those suffering from chronic kidney disease (CKD). Please consult your doctor or health care professional before taking additional supplements.
