Miraculous results with magnesium!

Posted by JLx on March 29, 2003, at 5:49:41

Hi all, this is my first post here though I have lurked from time to time. I found George Eby's "Rapid Recovery From Severe, Stress-Induced Depression Using Magnesium" site linked on a British online psychiatry journal. I see the link has been provided here before, but I wanted to mention his name, as I think he deserves a lot of credit for all his research, provided free for the rest of us.

I started on magnesium glycinate and quit my meds (Zoloft, Provigil) 24 hours later because I was already feeling so much better. (Not recommended, I know, but I could NOT bring myself to take what now felt like poison.) It's been nearly 5 weeks now of CAREFULLY following Eby's advice about not just magnesium, but also boron, no glutamates, etc. and I am convinced that I am through with depression for good! After being dysthymic and/or depressed (to the point of being on disability for 10 years) for most of my adult life, this is indeed miraculous to me. AND I've lost 30 pounds -- painlessly -- a miracle in itself. ;) I made radical changes in my diet the FIRST WEEK on magnesium -- no sugar (chocolate!), cheese (pizza!) aspartame, caffeine (Pepsi!) -- with NO cravings. And those were my favorite vices where giving up any one of those has always been extremely difficult in the past.

I've also been reading "Depression Free Naturally" by Joan Mathews Larson, "Your Miracle Brain" by Jean Carper, "The Cortisol Connection" by Shawn Talbott, and "The Omega-3 Connection" by Andrew Stoll. Between the info in those books and my recent experience, I am wondering if ALL of our mental illnesses are related to nutritional deficiencies -- if we can just figure out which ones apply to us individually. As someone said, "Where do neurotransmitters come from?"
