If our bodies are out of balance, then triggers are everywhere for a variety of unpleasant consequences…
For instance why would exercise with all of its benefits cause heart palpitations? We’re not just talking about heart palpitations being caused only by extreme workouts.
I find the following information helpful to provide a better understanding of what is happening and why:
As a general rule, acid substances tighten; and alkaline substances relax.
Magnesium is alkaline and relaxes the body from tightness, tension, stiffness, spasms, twitches, tics or jerkiness as in nervousness, anxiety, anger, fear, agitation, headaches, muscle cramps, menstrual cramps, arthritis, insomnia, constipation, heart palpitations, irregular heartbeats, high blood pressure, eye twitches, acne, plaque on teeth, plaque on heart and arteries due to cholesterol build-up, plaque on the brain [Alzheimer’s].
Magnesium acts as a natural gate or valve in the brain synapses that regulates influx of calcium into postsynaptic calcium channels from presynaptic neurons in parts of the brain that are involved in mood and behavior such as the hippocampus.
With inadequate magnesium (calcium toxicity), this function becomes altered and irritability, anxiety, depression, ADHD, mania, hypo-mania, bi-polar disorder, hyper-excitability and hyper-emotionality, and perhaps some psychoses, result.
Since there are people who don’t have heart palpitations, there could be some choices all of us could make to prevent them and improve our overall health.
