Rapid recovery from MDD using magnesium treatment

Recommended Posts

Magnesium ions regulate calcium ion flow in neuronal calcium channels, helping to regulate neuronal nitric oxide

production. In magnesium deficiency, neuronal requirements for magnesium may not be met, causing neuronal damage
which could manifest as depression. Magnesium treatment is hypothesized to be effective in treating major depression
resulting from intraneuronal magnesium deficits. These magnesium ion neuronal deficits may be induced by stress
hormones, excessive dietary calcium as well as dietary deficiencies of magnesium. Case histories are presented showing
rapid recovery (less than 7 days) from major depression using 125–300 mg of magnesium (as glycinate and taurinate)
with each meal and at bedtime. Magnesium was found usually effective for treatment of depression in general use.
Related and accompanying mental illnesses in these case histories including traumatic brain injury, headache, suicidal
ideation, anxiety, irritability, insomnia, postpartum depression, cocaine, alcohol and tobacco abuse, hypersensitivity to
calcium, short-term memory loss and IQ loss were also benefited. Dietary deficiencies of magnesium, coupled with
excess calcium and stress may cause many cases of other related symptoms including agitation, anxiety, irritability,
confusion, asthenia, sleeplessness, headache, delirium, hallucinations and hyperexcitability, with each of these having
been previously documented.
