My mom has told me of similar experiences where she’s become more klutzy than usual because so much of the stiffness she’d had has gone. Movement has become so much easier that she puts the same amount of effort that she’d had to in the past and get much further.
An interesting flip side of this increased awareness, mobility, and relaxation: Adam and I seem to be experiencing soreness from past tension releasing. For myself this seems to be concentrated around my head, neck, and upper back where I hold the majority of stress. I’ve always had tension on my upper back that made it extremely difficult for me to get through a day without a trip to the gym to literally work out the tension. I’d be dancing around in pain by the end of the work day if I didn’t. A stability ball for a seat and a standing desk helped, but never alleviated the tension. When I began taking ionic magnesium, I experienced mild tension headaches. Searching through research and reports, magnesium should alleviate headaches so I’m not positive there’s a correlation, but it’s a shot in the dark that my body was finally releasing the tension I’d never fully let go of and addressing the strain I had been carrying. A bit more directly, I also began feeling extremely sore in my upper back, very similar to when I’d been extremely stressed for a period of time and finally let it go. Continuing with the magnesium, the soreness has subsided and I have stopped feeling the daily tension I have held since beginning my first full time job. I can actually feel when my jaw first begins to clench and immediately release rather than realizing it halfway through the day and releasing only to bring awareness back an hour later to find it clenched again.
Adam had experienced a lot of pain in his knees immediately following his recovery. The pain has been lessening, especially once I started giving him a supplement of collagen. After that, about the time he took the ionic magnesium, his leg muscles started feeling sore. He described it as “tired”. He also caught up on some sleep, I don’t keep a tally but it seemed to me that he’s been more in the “debt” side of range.
Overall I’ve seen some very direct results that seem very positive and some changes that may or may not correlate but seem very interesting.
Below is the brand I’ve been using. I HIGHLY recommend taking it in water or coconut milk as the taste is quite strong.
