Magnesium accomplishes this by "wearing" several of its different “hats”:
(1) Affecting >300 enzymes
(2) Aiding ion transport across cell membranes
(3) Being involved in fatty acid and phospholipid metabolism;
Prevents Infection of Cell. It's easy to realize that magnesium deficiency would lead to a weakening of the cell membrane, thereby setting the stage for infection of the cell. Note that evidence is building to support the theory that such infections are involved in cancer.
Membrane integrity affects the ability of cells to prevent calcium from accumulating inside the cells. A compromised cell membrane (or low ATP production) makes it difficult for the cell to maintain the normal concentration gradient of 10,000 times more calcium outside of cells than inside; when this happens there is increased intracellular calcium.
In vivo, magnesium deficiency increases membrane fluidity and permeability

Chronic low-level inflammation (CLII) involved in almost all health problems
"The medical kit of the future"
General electrotherapy health benefits. Used systemically and/or locally at specific problem areas of the body, its effective application has many benefits:
|Detoxification||Wellness / Healthy aging||Pain relief|
|Relief from insomnia||Immune system restoral||Anti-Inflammatory|
|Maximizes cellular energy production||Accelerated tissue /bone
|Muscle relaxation / rehabilitation||Increased blood oxygen
There are several reasonably affordable electrotherapy devices available for personal use. The following electrotherapies are those that have received a significant amount of positive feedback:
|Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy|
|Near Infrared (NIR) class 4 laser therapy|
Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) applies specific frequency patterns to the head area, with the following benefits:
|Balances neurotransmitters||Relieves pain||Treats depression|
|Substance abuse withdrawal||Relieves insomnia||Relieve stress / anxiety|
