Magnesium is the most highly lacking mineral in our society. It’s not in the soil anymore and the toxins in the environment deplete our minerals. When I say environment I mean the air, water, things we eat, things we touch, and our inner environment in our bodies, but the toxins. Things like heavy metals such as mercury or phthalates and other things like GMO’s or glyphosate that binds to our minerals and deplete them even more. All kinds of things deplete our magnesium including stress. Magnesium is the first thing to be released from our cells when we are stressed. Not just mental stress but physical stress too.
Neural plasticity is the regeneration of new brain cells. You thought that was impossible? No, it's possible. More proprioception firing causes increased neural plasticity, brain function, and heightens all of your senses.
Inversely, inflammation in the body causes stiffness of the muscles and joints which decreases proprioception firings. Less proprioception firing decreases brain function. A good anti-inflammatory diet and learning proper mobilizers will help with this. Send me a message for more help with the diet and exercise details.
