Interesting. I just recently added magnesium oil. My doc would not be happy with me. He says Lyme and Protomyzoa Rehumatica usE magnesium to help proliferate themselves. It helps form biofilms too. There are other docs that think calcium and iron are the "cause". I think my avoiding magnesium for so long has caused more problems than helping. I think I'm really deficient in magnesium now and avoiding it hasn't seemed to make that much difference with eliminating the protozoa. So, I use it a few times a week. I am having lots of inflammation issues and wonder if the DMSO would be doable for me. Thanks for the info.Thanks Cort for the congrats. DMSO definitely feels like it's becoming a game changer for me. Every time I get up in the morning and see the bottle of it on my bathroom counter, I feel grateful and have HOPE, something that's been in short supply the past couple of years. The way I see it, is the various ways to experiment with and use DMSO is only limited by our imagination, especially with its ability to be a carrier of other substances into our bodies.
Re: Magnesium Oil. Bryan Rosner, who cured himself of Lyme and has written several books on treating Lyme (and who I have a high regard for), just wrote a really good article on magnesium and magnesium oil entitled:
July Supplement of the Month: Magnesium Oil (Old Topic, New Protocol) by BRYAN on JULY 10, 2016
This is his beginning note:
(Note: Many of you, and myself as well, have used magnesium supplements. However, personally, I started achieving incredible results when I stopped using regular magnesium supplements and started following the below protocol. So, even if you’ve taken magnesium in the past, keep reading, this is important).
There was also a thread over at PR started by Sherpa that I thought was very good, whose first post read as follows. His illustrated guide offers good insights and details
I've made it a priority since late last year to apply magnesium oil virtually every day to my skin, and have definitely experienced some of its calming effects as a result. I've come to believe that treating Lyme (which I have) while dealing with a magnesium deficiency can not only be relatively futile, but perhaps even dangerous. I read the same thing about iodine from a testimonial a few years ago. A guy with Lyme absolutely couldn't tolerate the dieoff reactions from doing Lyme treatment until he raised his deficient iodine levels.
