I had been having a discussion with Morley Robbins
I had been having a discussion with Morley today brought up by a different post conversation I was having with someone else. I was discussing with him my experience with cramps and how I solved my cramping depending on where the cramps were. And here is a comment he made to me. “Please know that your PBR (Potassium BURN Rate) is a function of your Iron status… They are NOT independent variables… Iron CAUSES an acidic pH… Potassium LEAVES when the pH Drops!
Does that make sense?… And as you lighten the load of Iron, there is Mo’ Maggie to manage the Potassium so that it doesn’t LEAVE causing you Palps & Muscle cramps….”
Did a light bulb just get brighter?????
So the reason why we cramp is dysregulation of Iron causing a acidic pH followed by lowered potassium status and Maggie status. So one minute you might have Leg cramps, and then finger or toe cramps. Your trying to figure out WHY! You have your answer above. Too much excess unbound Iron is lowering mineral status especially Mag and K. But if you don’t resolve the Excess unbound iron, your going to need constant magnesium and potassium in supplements or food to keep replenishing the loss. ANd that circle or tail chasing will not end until the Iron Issue is corrected.
This is why he is partly harping on the IRON Issue. The other part is it is slowly overcoming the minerals and overwhelming the Liver, Kidney’s, Pancreas and Heart and who knows what other parts of the body. and you get symptoms and wonder WHY! You will never be able to overcome this problem of excess unbound Iron without a plan because you have been for years prior in your life, ate a higher Iron fortified diet not knowing you were doing it, and storing all the Iron to the point of Excess. It takes allot of effort to correct this problem like a major change in diet and a plan to correct the Iron overload. But first you need the blood tests and HTMA to know where to start and the analysis of those tests. Your just wasting time and money otherwise. It is YOUR Health we are talking about, yours and mine. And it is your choice what is important to you. Obviously your here because you have something bothering you and trying to fix the problem as you have not had results elsewhere. I was in the same boat when the Mag Group only had 2500 members. I procrastinated for 3 years to get the tests, but it was not about money for the tests. I wanted something to relieve my symptoms in a natural way. I found Magnesium and this group. But it turned out way more than that. As I took the Mag I got more and more heart palps! Wonder why?
Anyway, I just wanted to chime in and maybe add info to those of you new and older to the group, that there is a path to success. I am in the process of going down the path to better health natures way!
Hopefully by next January I will have donated enough blood that I will see much better results. I was asked to do a follow up testimonial, but that will wait until next year. This is not a sprint, but a Marathon in length, to see results. For me I expect 18 months to 2 years and I started in March 2016 with testing, blood donations in June and supplementing started in May.
I hope for much more success. Hope you do as well.
