NOTE: I am pleased to present our first guest essay. This new work was written by Mark Sircus, Ac., OMD, author of Transdermal Magnesium Therapy.
Mark Sircus, Ac., OMD The secrets of the sea are miracles waiting to be discovered by medical science. The world of tomorrow will see a different kind of medicine that uses one of the many possible forms that sea water can be found in. First there is pure sea water and the health benefits that can be arrived from it. Seawater contains every mineral and trace mineral known, in organic form and in the proper ratios needed by human tissues. Dr. René Quinton, French biologist/physiologist, proved that seawater properly formulated and under certain conditions, is virtually identical to mammalian blood plasma. With the assistance of many eminent physicians, he successfully used seawater as a healing agent on thousands of patients in France and Egypt in the early 1900s.
Many disease conditions responded to injections of the diluted
ocean water—a true “[i]marine plasma ” which could re-mineralize
a sick body, normalize the pH (acid–alkali) level and balance the
electrolytes, thereby correcting the underlying cause of many disease
conditionsby regenerating the “internal terrain”, as Quinton called it.
Then there is pure sea water with just the salt removed and the Japanese are pumping it up from the deepest depths of the waters surrounding Hawaii, taking the salt out of it, and selling it in exponentially expanding quantities to their populations living half an ocean away. They seem to know something that their western counterparts have not even guessed at. A century ago doctors in France routinely used sea water to great effect. Babies were brought back from near death from cholera and other causes; cadaver-like bodies filled out to healthy plumpness; raw, weeping skin from eczema made smooth and lesion free all by the power of seawater.
We also have diluted sea water concentrations that are ideal for treating children and for use in transfusions instead of whole blood plasma.[ii] And then we have sea water concentrates where not only the salt has been removed but much of the water. When we concentrate sea water in this way we end up with a magnesium chloride solution that acts simultaneously as a super nutrient and a powerful medicine without equal.
Seawater can be ingested orally, can be injected,
or when concentrated can be applied topically.
To use ocean water as blood plasma, it must be diluted with ultra-pure water to the same concentration as blood plasma: namely, nine grams of salts per litre. “Just think what a safe, effective, plentiful substitute for blood transfusion would mean to the world: no side effects, no blood-type matching needed, no pathogen screening required, and it would be a true plasma with proven healing properties in itself,” writes Dianne Jacobs Thompson in Nexus Magazine. She continues saying, “As the perfect mineral supplement, it can be consumed orally in dilute form or full strength by those with no sodium sensitivities—but only in small amounts, like an ounce [0.03 litres] at a time, several times a day if necessary.”
The Greatest Miracle from the Sea
65% of Magnesium metal is produced in
the world is from seawater. Almost
every element, including gold and uranium,
is found in traces in seawater.[iii]
Magnesium chloride solutions gained from sea water evaporation (or by industrial pharmaceutical fabrication) offers a medical miracle to humanity, the one that many have sought for but have not found. Nothing short of a miracle is to be expected in ones health status if one is ill when one increases the cellular levels of magnesium. There is no wonder drug that can claim in the clear what magnesium chloride can.
Approximately nine out of ten people will show dramatic improvements in the state of their health when they replete their magnesium levels and the very best way to do that is with magnesium chloride gained from the sea. With such “brine solutions” one can simply apply the concentrate to the skin or pour it into ones bath water and one will have a medical treatment of primordial priority.
Hidden in each cubic mile of ocean water is enough healing
power to put the pharmaceutical businesses out of business.
The evidence is in and medical science and the pharmaceutical companies will eventually have to deal with the fact the most powerful and universal medicine on earth is a basic nutrient from the sea and can be purchased by anyone at low cost. Magnesium is nothing short of a miracle to a person deficient in this critical nutrient (minimum of 68% of the general population is deficient in magnesium according to MIT). Application through oral, intravenous or transdermal methods in sufficient quantities will deliver medical and health benefits unimaginable by most practicing physicians today.
In today’s restrictive medical atmosphere seawater can only be referred to as
a “mineral drink”. If the word “cure” were uttered or written in relation to a
brand name, the “offence” would be legally actionable.
I have used the word miracle repeatedly above because sea water products and naturally derived magnesium chloride solutions (and even the more toxic over the counter pharmaceutical grade type of magnesium chloride) produce dramatic changes in person after person. So clear and observable are the effects that there is no mistake, no mysticism, no false claim made. Emergency room personnel know of this and use either magnesium sulfate or chloride to save peoples lives during heart attacks or diminish the damage from strokes. And new research suggests that MgSO4 infusions may have a role in cerebral vasospasm prophylaxis if therapy is initiated within 48 hours of aneurysm rupture.[iv]
In the most dramatic life threatening situations magnesium salts deliver on their promise of being the universal medicine of tomorrow available today without paying through the nose for billions of pharmaceutical research and development for a long list of drugs that can easily kill as well as cure.
Vast reservoirs of magnesium chloride have been with us all
along as a healing and life-giving agent, hidden in plain sight.
Medicine today is more and more frequently described in terms of science. With the origin and development of drugs and surgical techniques modern medicine has thought itself to be evermore exact and evermore resembling the hard sciences of chemistry and physics. Evidence based medicine promises a clearer future even though the quality of the evidence used in modern allopathic medicine is highly suspect. There is no such cloud hanging over the scientific evidence that makes it perfectly clear why magnesium would be so potent and safe. All one has to do is do some research or read The Magnesium Miracle by Dr. Carolyn Dean or my book Transdermal Magnesium Therapy and you will meet basic researchers from all over the globe who have weighed in on the subject.
Transdermal is the ultimate best way to replenish cellular magnesium
levels. Every cell in the body bathes and feeds in it and even DHEA
levels are increased naturally, according to Dr. Norman Shealy
There is no denying the medical power and potential of magnesium yet we do find obtuse arrogance in the medical world which is content to see millions hurt by pharmaceutical drugs that were designed more to make money than help people. When it comes to magnesium chloride and how easily it can be safely applied, it’s a sad crime to see professionals in responsible positions turn their back on the medical breakthrough of the century.
It seems apparent that medical people who have sold their souls to the pharmaceutical monolith are no more interested in helping people than the drug companies, which can trace their reign of terror back to the concentration camps where they had doctors torturing men, woman and children on a routine basis.
Magnesium chloride will find a home not only in the medical world, where some fine physicians have been using it for decades, but also in the sports world, where it will be used to prevent injuries, heal injuries that have already occurred and improve athletic performance, and in the beauty business. In reality, beauty and health are highly related subjects. Rarely do we see an unhealthy person who is beautiful or a beautiful person who is grossly unhealthy. As we lose our health, our beauty is diminished by the diseases we fall victim to. In ancient China, magnesium was and still is called the beautiful metal and it will bring nothing but beauty to one’s life, body and skin.
In a minimum of ninety percent of clinical situations, magnesium chloride is the first substance that should be applied. It is a foundational treatment that is only exceeded by the importance of water and full hydration of patients. Its elevation in importance, and use as the cornerstone in medical treatment, will cut off the need for tens of billions of dollars of other drugs that hold dangers that are not inherent in the use of a basic mineral from the sea. Dangers that the FDA should indeed be vigilant about, but do not apply to the great macronutrient that is the sea.[i] Rene Quinton “was the first person to discern and to investigate the similarity between sea water and mammalian lymph and blood plasma systems. He endeavored to solve the mysteries of sea water and its compatibility with living organisms by proceeding to carry out several scientific experiments in hospitals. The results he obtained were dramatically unexpected, since several people who were dying regained their vigor. Rene Quinton worked in collaboration with Drs. Potocki, Mace and Jarricot, and for four years he labored at perfecting his techniques and adjusting dosages. In 1904, he released the results of his hospital experiments in a book entitled, ‘L’eau de mer, milieu organique’ (Sea Water: Organic Medium). The book was re-issued in 1995 because of the timeliness of its well- researched contents.” [ii] In one experiment, René Quinton and his medical team drained a dog of all of its blood and replaced it with isotonic (diluted) seawater. The dog should have died immediately, one would think, but the dog lived. On day two after the transfusion, 50% of the blood components had reappeared. By day four, almost 100% of the missing blood components were restored in what appeared to be proof of biological transmutation (a change from one element to another). Not only did the blood completely regenerate, but soon after the procedure the dog bounced around like a puppy with greater vitality than before, and it lived for many years afterwards. [iii] The major ions are conservative. This means that they have constant ratios, to one another and to salinity, in almost all ocean water. Sea salts have constant composition. They almost always consist of: 55% sodium ion, 31% chloride, 8% sulfate, 4% magnesium ion, 1% calcium ion, 1% potassium ion.
