Transdermal Magnesium Therapy

"Transdermal Magnesium Therapy Is Ideal For Pain Management".

The use of Magnesium spray is a breakthrough in Magnesium Supplementation that accelerates the absorption rate so that what normally takes 12 months can be achieved in one month.

Magnesium is actually not an oil but does have an oily feel to it. The evaporation of sea water will produce a salinity that results in the salt crystalising. The concentrated liquid sea water left after crystalisation of the salt is rich in Magnesium and other trace elements and minerals. This is reffered to as 'Magnesium Oil'. Magnesium Oil can also be made from Diluting Magnesium into purified water.

Spraying the Magnesium onto the skin results in rapid absorption of Magnesium into the body. The body only absorbs as much as it needs and with Transdermal application overdosing is not an issue.

Principles and Practices of Transdermal Medicine by Dr Mark Sircus, International Medical Veritas Association,

Transdermal medicine delivers medications to the exact site of injury/pain.

Transdermal medicine is ideal for pain management as well as sports and pediatric medicine. In fact it is one of the best ways of administering medicines quickly and effectively. Transdermal methods of delivery are widely used because they allow the absorption of medicine directly through the skin. Gels, emulsion creams, sprays and lip balm stick applicators are easy to use and are effective in getting medicine into the blood stream quickly.

Traditional methods of administering medicine such as tablets or capsules get watered down and become much less effective due to stomach acids and digestive enzymes, before they eventually get into the bloodstream. Bypassing the stomach and liver means a much greater percentage of the active ingredient goes straight into the bloodstream where it’s needed. In many cases, transdermal methods are used to help avoid potential side effects such as stomach upset or drowsiness. The full potential for transdermal medicine has not been explored by modern medicine though it has been practiced for thousands of years in hot springs around the world.

Transdermal medicine is a versatile form of medicine everyone can use and benefit from. With transdermal medicine we can address systemic nutritional deficiencies, act to improve immune, hormonal and nervous systems, protect cells from oxidative damage, open up cell wall permeability, reduce the risk of cancers, shrink tumors and do just about anything else we do with oral and intravenous drugs.

Now imagine receiving your medical treatment right in the comfort of your own home if you cannot get to the warm sea water.

Transdermal magnesium therapy is ideal for pain management. The combination of heat and magnesium chloride increases circulation and waste removal. The therapeutic effect of magnesium baths is to draw inflammation out of the muscles and joints. Magnesium chloride, when applied directly to the skin is transdermally absorbed and has an almost immediate effect on pain.

What better way to reduce or eliminate pain than by simply taking a therapeutic bath or rubbing magnesium chloride substance in liquid form directly onto the skin or affected area of the body? From the pain of sports injuries to low back pain and sciatica, headaches, relief from kidney stones, the pain of restless legs, arthritic pain, and just about every painful condition imaginable will in all likelyhood benefit from medicines applied topically.

Medicines taken by mouth (oral) pass through the liver before they are absorbed into the bloodstream. Other forms of drug administration bypass the liver, entering the blood directly.

Magnesium can be applied directly to inflamed areas.

Transdermal magnesium therapy in particular offers an exciting breakthrough in sports medicine. Coaches can now treat injuries, prevent them, and increase athletic performance all at the same time. Transdermal magnesium chloride mineral therapy enhances recovery from athletic activity or injuries. It reduces pain and inflammation while propagating quicker regeneration of tissues. Topical application of magnesium chloride increases flexibility, which helps avoid injury. It also increases strength and endurance. Transdermal Magnesium Therapy is a boon for athletes, coaches and doctors who practice sports medicine.

What a few can do with intravenous magnesium injections everyone can do with transdermal magnesium
“oils” that really have no oil but feel very oily.

In summary, magnesium is a safe and simple intervention (one of the highest considerations in most clinical situations). Transdermal mineral therapy with Magnesium Oil is the most powerful, safe; first line all purpose medical intervention we have to care for many of our needs. With the simple application of an oily lotion on the skin or used in baths we can easily have our patients take up their magnesium to healthier levels. With patients who are deficient in magnesium (the great majority of patients are magnesium deficient) expect dramatic improvements in a broad range of conditions.

“Yesterday I witnessed one of the most amazing benefits of transdermal medicine I have ever seen. It certainly was a demonstration of the absorption properties of the skin. I work with another RN who is afflicted with arthritis, especially in her hands, and frequent muscle cramping/spasms in her legs. Yesterday I received a phone call from her begging me to please bring to the hospital some magnesium oil (‘oil’ = magnesium chloride hexahydrate flakes mixed with water 30 to 70%), as her hands were so cramped up and painful that she could barely stand to continue working.

“When I got there, her hands and fingers were very contorted in spasm. Her fingers were curled up and stiff and her legs were cramping badly. She reported they had been this way all day, and the pain was driving her to tears. She immediately slathered the magnesium oil all over her hands. We were in report and she wanted it on her hands right away so the entire nursing staff watched and within 5 minutes you could visibly see her fingers extend back to normal and the finger movement return. We could literally see the relaxation taking place. Within minutes her hands were completely relaxed and functional again and stayed that way the remainder of the evening.” Claudia French RN Relevant Research — Transdermal Magnesium Therapy

Dr. Norman Shealy MD, Ph.DC. one of the founders of the Holistic Medical Society and expert in pain management investigated the benefits of a 25% magnesium chloride oil and has found that it is effectively absorbed through the skin and significantly raises magnesium levels. Here he shows the typical results of a 25% magnesium oil used in foot baths and daily all over application by means of Magnesium oil body spraying.

Dr. Shealy stated at the time: "This insight led me to test the possibility that the oil, known to contain up to 25% magnesium chloride might facilitate absorption of magnesium through the skin. We then recruited 16 individuals with low intracellular magnesium levels to participate in the following experiment"

"Our purpose was to research whether or not magnesium was absorbed through the skin. Exclusion factors included anyone taking oral or IV magnesium during the last 6 weeks and smokers. Individuals sprayed a solution of 50% Mag Oil over the entire body once daily for a month and did a 20 minute foot soak in Mag Oil once daily for a month. Subjects had a baseline Intracellular Magnesium Test documenting their deficiency and another post-Intracellular Magnesium Test after 1 month of daily soaks.
The results were impressive. Twelve of sixteen patients, 75%, had significant improvements in intracellular magnesium levels after only four weeks of foot soaking and skin spray."

Test results before and after 4 weeks of foot soaks:

 Magnesium deficiency triggers or causes the following conditions:

  1. Anxiety and Panic attacks- Magnesium (Mg) normally keeps adrenal stress hormones under control.
  2. Asthma- Both histamine production and bronchial spasms increase with Mg deficiency.
  3. Blood clots- Mg has an important role to play in preventing blood clots and keeping the blood thin-much like aspirin but without the side effects.
  4. Bowel disease- Mg deficiency slows down the bowel causing constipation, which could lead to toxicity and malabsorption of nutrients, as well as colitis.
  5. Cystitis- Bladder spasms are worsened by Mg deficiency.
  6. Depression-Serotonin, which elevates moods, is dependent on Mg. A Mg-deficient brain is also more susceptible to allergens, foreign substances that can cause symptoms similar to mental illness.
  7. Detoxification- Mg is crucial for the removal of toxic substances and heavy metals such as aluminum and lead.
  8. Diabetes- Mg enhances insulin secretion, facilitating sugar metabolism. Without Mg insulin is not able to transfer glucose into cells. Glucose and insulin build up in the blood causing various types of tissue damage.
  9. Fatigue- Mg-deficient patients commonly experience fatigue because dozens of enzyme systems are under-functioning. An early symptom of Mg deficiency is frequently fatigue.
  10. Heart disease- Mg deficiency is common in people with heart disease. Mg is administered in hospitals for acute myocardial infarction and cardiac arrhythmia. Like any other muscle, the heart muscle requires Mg. Mg is also used to treat angina, or chest pain.
  11. Hypertension- With insufficient Mg, spasm of blood vessels and high cholesterol occur, both of which lead to blood pressure problems.
  12. Hypoglycemia- Mg keeps insulin under control; without Mg episodes of low blood sugar can result.
  13. Insomnia- Sleep-regulating melatonin production is disturbed without sufficient Mg.
  14. Kidney Disease- Mg deficiency contributes to atherosclerotic kidney failure. Mg deficiency creates abnormal lipid levels and worsening blood sugar control in kidney transplant patients.
  15. Liver Disease leading to liver failure- Mg deficiency commonly occurs during liver transplantation.
  16. Migraine- Serotonin balance is Mg-dependent. Deficiency of serotonin can result in migraine headaches and depression.
  17. Musculoskeletal conditions- Fibrositis, fibromyalgia, muscle spasms, eye twitches, cramps and chronic neck and back pain may be caused by Mg deficiency and can be relieved with Mg supplements.
  18. Nerve problems- Mg alleviates peripheral nerve disturbances throughout the whole body, such as migraines, muscle contractions, gastrointestinal spasms, and calf, foot and toe cramps. It is also used in treating central nervous symptoms of vertigo and confusion.
  19. Obstetrics and Gynecology- Mg prevents Premenstrual Syndrome; prevents dysmenorrhea (cramping pain during menses); is important in the treatment of infertility; and alleviates premature contractions, preeclampsia, and eclampsia in pregnancy. Intravenous Mg is given in obstetrical wards for pregnancy-induced hypertension and to lessen the risk of cerebral palsy and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Mg should be a required supplement for pregnant mothers.
  20. Osteoporosis- Use of calcium with Vitamin D to enhance calcium absorption without a balancing amount of Mg causes further Mg deficiency, which triggers a cascade of events leading to bone loss.
  21. Raynaud's Syndrome- Mg helps relax the spastic blood vessels that cause pain and numbness of the fingers.
  22. Tooth decay- Mg deficiency causes an unhealthy balance of phosphorus and calcium in saliva, which damages teeth. Material excerpted from Dean, Carolyn. The Miracle of Magnesium (2003 Ballantine Books: New York, NY), 2003. pp. 5-7.


1. Atomised Body Spray:- Spray magnesium oil directly on the skin. This has been shown to be the easiest and most effective transdermal application method.

There are a few different approaches in using Magnesium oil as a spray. A simple, quick and effective method is to spray selected areas of the body — e.g. armpits, thighs, abdomen, feet etc. If possible a few spray applications, in accessible areas, during the day gives increased absorption. It is also beneficial to target specific problem areas, where you are experiencing joint pain and stiffness or sore and cramping muscles. The wet ‘oil’ can be rubbed into the skin, which will facilitate absorption. For best results leave the Magnesium Oil on for the day. Moisturiser can be applied after the ‘oil’ has dried on the skin. Do not moisturise before applying Magnesium Oil as this will affect the absorption. Sprayed into the armpits Magnesium oil is a very effective natural deodorant.

The Magnesium Oil can also be sprayed on the whole body and gently rubbed into the skin. For difficult areas to reach, the hands can be wet and then rubbed onto the area of skin needed. Sensitive areas may sting and it is not advised to spray onto skin immediately after shaving. The sting is similar to putting salt onto open pores and sensitive skin. No harm is done from the sting and a little extra water can be applied to the area to dilute the ‘oil’ and reduce the sting.

Once you have wet the whole body from neck to ankles leave on for 10 to 30 minutes before showering off, without using soap, and then dry yourself down. A light spray on specific small areas can also be done afterwards and left on for the day.

2. Foot Bath. Adding 100 to 200mls magnesium oil to a foot bath also provides excellent magnesium absorption and is great for problems in the feet and ankles.

3. Bathing. Pouring magnesium oil into a bath of warm water is extremely relaxing and provides good magnesium absorption. At least 250 mls should be used in a bath of water.

Frequency: For best results regular, in fact daily, spray applications should be done for the first few months. This is a Magnesium supplement and to achieve and maintain optimum Magnesium levels consistent application is necessary. This should become part of your regular maintenance and supplementation. Spray at least 10 to 20 mls on daily for the first few months. Some people use the oil less frequently after a few months to maintain Magnesium levels. It depends on your individual needs.


To increase the absorption of the magnesium oil by the skin

1. Exfoliation or Brushing. We recommend doing an exfoliation with African Healing Clay before applying the Magnesium Oil. Leaving the African Healing Clay on the area for 15 to 20 minutes will also provide an excellent detox before replenishing the Magnesium through Transdermal therapy. The African Healing Clay also stimulates the circulation and prepares the skin for optimal absorption. For the braver, opening the pores and stimulating the skin through dry brushing can also be beneficial.

2. Massage. Although Magnesium Oil is not actually Oil the oily feel lends itself to massaging the oil into the skin.Massaging stimulates circulation to the skin, and underlying tissues, which helps absorption of the Magnesium.

3. Warm Bath or Shower. Cleaning all residue of moisturising lotions, oils and chemicals off the skin, with the added circulatory stimulation from the warmth of a bath or shower, opens the pores and prepares the skin for better absorption.

NB: Do not apply any moisturiser, lotion or cream before applying Magnesium Oil.This will reduce effective absorption.


Can Magnesium Oil be applied more than once a day? Yes, especially in the initial stages to build Magnesium levels up to optimum point, the more often the better OR for chronic pain, burns, bruising, stiffness.

What Is Magnesium oil? Magnesium “oil” is a term for a high % solution of magnesium chloride in water usually with other trace elements found in Sea Water, In natural form, Magnesium Oil is the concentrated brine or ‘bitterns’ left after the salt has crystallised from the evaporation of Sea Water in pools. Magnesium Oil can also be made from USP grade Magnesium Chloride. We use the purest grade of Magnesium Chloride that is suitable for intravenous injections — especially used for people arriving at hospital with a heart attack. Magnesium reduces the mortality rate from heart attacks by up to 50%
