SIGNS YOU MAY BE DEFICIENT IN MAGNESIUM 

 

There’s seems to be plenty of talk about Vitamin D deficiency today, but are you aware that one of the most common nutritional deficiencies is magnesium?

The truth is, according to estimates, 80 percent of Americans are deficient in this mineral, which can result in significant health consequences.
Although there are blood tests that can be done by your doctor, only one percent of magnesium in your body is found in your blood, making these tests inaccurate. Your physician may perform other tests to estimate your levels according to your symptoms.

Here are Some of the Signs and Symptoms that You May be Deficient in Magnesium.

cd62cba1b1dd0bbb15c6142a6c873117• Insomnia

According to a study done at the Human Nutrition Research study, those individuals on a high magnesium, low aluminum diet, were found to be associated with a deeper, and less interrupted sleep. Chronic insomnia, and frequent awakenings during the night, on the other hand, is one of the main signs of a magnesium deficiency. It’s important to note , however, that for your overall health, both magnesium and calcium should be taken in a balanced ratio.

• Muscle Soreness

Magnesium helps to maintain normal function of the muscles and nerves. When a muscle needs to contract, magnesium allows calcium into the cell allowing it to contract, and then magnesium helps it to relax. Since magnesium’s role is to push calcium out of the cell when it’s job is done, when there is an insufficient amount of magnesium in the cell, the calcium won’t leave and stays there. If this happens, the cells continue to
contract and won’t relax, leading to muscle tension, spasms, cramps, and restlessness.

• Irritability

Without a sufficient amount of magnesium in the body, the nervous system can be affected since it relies on magnesium for nerve conduction. Low magnesium levels are associated with an electrolyte imbalance affecting the nervous system which can lead to irritability, anxiety, and other conditions.

• Sensitivity to Noise

If you suffer from noise sensitivity, it could be because you are low on magnesium in yourbody.The truth is, magnesium plays an important role in hearing health. Although, it’s not clear why, adequate levels of magnesium may reduce your sensitivity to noise, and even help reduce symptoms of tinnitus. The idea is that magnesium seems to act as a glutamate inhibitor, and the cause of tinnitus is thought to be caused from an overabundance of the neurotransmitter, glutamate.

Factors that May Contribute to Low Magnesium Levels.

• Drink Caffeinated Drinks Daily

Consuming caffeinated drinks daily, such as coffee, and tea, can deplete your magnesium levels. Caffeine can cause the kidneys to get rid of excess magnesium, since magnesium levels are controlled largely by the kidneys.

• Stress

Magnesium deficiencies can be caused by stress, according to some studies. As stated in this research, stress and anxiety by products, such as cortisol, and adrenaline, were also associated with lower magnesium levels.

• Carbonated Beverages

The consumption of carbonated beverages has risen at an alarming pace since 1940. Phosphates contained in many of the dark-colored carbonated beverages  can bind magnesium inside the digestive tract, making it unavailable to your body, depleting your magnesium levels.

Top Foods that are Rich in Magnesium.

1. Nuts (Almonds, Cashews, Pumpkin Seeds)
2. Beans (Black beans, Navy Beans, Pinto Beans, Kidney Beans)
3. Seafood ( Halibut, Mackerel)
4. Dark Green vegetables (Spinach, Kale)
5.Whole Grain Cereals ( Bran, Wheat Germ , Oats)

If you think you are deficient in magnesium it’s best to consult your healthcare professional for further tests, and include more magnesium rich foods as part of a healthy diet. Consider using Magnesium Plus or click picture below

Life Is Really Very Simple. What We Give Out- We Get Back-You Can Heal Your Life

Life Is Really Very Simple. What We Give Out, We Get Back-You Can Heal Your Life

What we think about ourselves becomes the truth for us. I believe that everyone, myself included, is responsible for everything in our lives, the best and the worst. Every thought we think is creating our future. Each one of us creates our experiences by our thoughts and our feelings. The thoughts we think and the words we speak create our experiences.

Louise L. Hay, bestselling author, of the book You Can Heal Your Life and is an internationally known leader in the self-help field. Her key message is: “If we are willing to do the mental work, almost anything can be healed.” The author has a great deal of experience and firsthand information to share about healing, including how she cured herself after being diagnosed with cancer.

WHAT ARE YOUR 2015 PREPAREDNESS GOALS?

WHAT ARE YOUR 2015 PREPAREDNESS GOALS?

The Ready Store® – Always Here | Always Ready

Home_Banner-2015-National-Preparedness-Month

2015 is fast approaching and that means New Year’s Resolutions! So, what are your preparedness goals going to be?

The beginning of the new year is a great time to analyze your needs and wants as a family. That’s why we’ve prepared this easy-to-use preparedness checklist.

Preparedness Checklist Printable

Many people don’t even know where to begin when it comes to preparedness. Lucky for them, they have great friends like you! Use this sheet to help them know where they can begin.

Gather Information
The first thing you’ll want to do is assess your risks. For example, if you live on the east coast hurricanes would be a threat. If you live in the Midwest, tornadoes might be your biggest threat.

If you’re not sure what to prepare for in your area, contact one of our ReadyExperts or your local community’s emergency management team.

This is also a great time to ask your work if they have an emergency plan or your children’s schools and daycares.

Make a Plan
Once you’ve figured out what you’re planning for, begin to make a plan of how you’ll be prepared. The best thing you can do is discuss these issues with family members and friends. In order to help children know what to do during a disaster, talk about it and practice.

Have an evacuation plan in place to get out of your home in case of a fire. Also plan how you would leave the city if there were a community-wide evacuation like a wildfire or hurricane warning.

This is the time when you should also prepare by assessing how much food and water you’ll need. Your Ready Expert can help you know how much food and water you’ll need for your family.

Collect and Prepare
Now is the time to execute your plan. Begin to collect the non-perishable foods you’ll need. Gather supplies for your 72-hour kit, water containers, etc. Based on what you’ve planned, your needs will be unique.

It’s important to prepare but don’t run faster than your legs can carry you. Pace yourself and take the list one step at a time.

Your goals?
So, what are your preparedness goals for this next year? Comment below and let us know how we can help. http://www.thereadystore.com/?utm_medium=affiliate&utm_campaign=PAP&aid=53445c4a30e53

Why Prepping is a Growing Urban Movement

When people think of preppers – also known as survivalists – many of them automatically visualize individuals that are off the beaten path, already living off the grid with a rugged lifestyle that wouldn’t change much if civilization were to collapse.

If you think that, you’d be wrong.

Today, more and more preppers are living in urban areas. Recent events like Hurricane Sandy and the constant fear terrorist threats have made many urbanites turn their focus to being prepared for serious disasters. In a lot of ways, people living in large cities have more to consider and prepare for than people living in rural areas.

Urban Obstacles Increase the Need to Prep

In the last few years we have seen an increase in terror threats, natural disasters and financial instability. Natural disasters can strike anywhere. Global economic issues affect everyone no matter where they live. People in cities, suburban areas, small towns and the countryside are all susceptible.  That said, there immediate environment will dictate the types of risks they face.

If you think about it, if you live in an urban environment, having an emergency preparation plan makes a lot of sense. Urbanites have several distinct obstacles that people in smaller, rural areas don’t have to worry about.

  • They often live in areas or have lifestyles that are less conducive to self-sustainability.
  • Urban areas are more likely to be hit by disasters that aren’t natural, like terrorist attacks.
  • There are more people competing for resources.
  • Strong possibility of congestion if there is mass exodus.
  • Emergency service personnel have more people they have to help.

Many people living in urban areas don’t have some of the survival options that are open to people living in rural areas, such as yards big enough for sizable survival gardens and a place for an underground bunker. Because of this and the additional considerations listed above, urbanites especially need to plan, collect the best survival gear for their particular environment, and prepare well in advance.

Prepping Tips for Urbanites

Preparedness is important for everyone. However, where you live can affect how and what you prepare. If you live in an urban area here are things that you need to put at the top of your prepping list.

Personal Safety – Looting, violence, hysteria – these are all issues a person may face when there are thousands, if not millions of people in an area that are facing a disaster. Situations that threaten a person’s wellbeing can make them do desperate things they would never think of doing normally. It’s important that you have the means to protect yourself and your family.

Terrorism Threats – Terrorists are going to try to do the most damage possible incurring the largest loss of life possible, making urban areas attractive targets. As we learned on 9/11 a terrorist attack can take many forms, including bio warfare. An urbanite’s bug out bag should include additional items such as a facemask, awater purification straw and even iodine pills.

Escape Routes – Planning an escape route as well as several alternatives is of key concern for urbanites. History has shown that during disaster situations in urban areas roads can quickly become overwhelmed with bumper-to-bumper traffic, impeding people’s ability to make a quick, safe escape. There are also the issues of having enough gas and the possibility of others trying to confiscate cars if their own mode of transportation fails.

Plan Your Safe Haven – You should always plan your escape destinations ahead of time.  You will want several alternative destinations spread out in various directions. Have an area map for your city as well as the safe haven areas on hand in case roads are blocked. A good location will be outside the “danger zone,” with family or like-minded friends you trust. My Patriot Supply highly recommends collaborating with other preppers to establish locations where you can meet and support one another as a community.

Whether you live in a rural area or an urban city center, it is always important to have an emergency strategy in case disaster strikes.  This means having on hand an adequate emergency food supply, supplies for purifying drinking water, survival tools, important medication, and a safe haven planned ahead of time.

The time to plan is today!
