Inactivity Causes Fatigue

Dr. Wayne Brandstadt, who wrote in the New York World Telegram and Sun (August 13, 1965) said:
“In some persons nervous fatigue is actually caused by insufficient exercise. If you suffer from insomnia, one of the chief symptoms of nervous exhaustion, run around the block 3 times before tumbling into bed, then make yourself limp as a wet rag. The chances are you will go to sleep at once.”

Research shows that low magnesium levels tend to make a person irritable, nervous, aggressive and hyper-excitable. Raising magnesium levels can have a sedative effect upon the nervous system, offsetting emotional stress that leads to fatigue by calming a jittery person so that relaxation and sleep are possible.

Magnesium is found in many of the same foods that contain potassium. In home and container gardening , dolomite and dolomitic limestone are added to soils and potting mixes as a pH buffer and as a magnesium source which it turn increases this valuable mineral in your food. Your garden may contain the remedy if you grow lima beans, green beans, peas, lettuce, spinach, swiss chard, corn, pumpkins (seeds) and sunflowers (seeds).

Bonus: Eat right, get exercise working in fresh air in the garden and sleep better!
