Why are Magnesium and Calcium so Important?

Magnesium and Calcium are the two elements that are leached out of our bodies when our PH is not correct and our body is acidic. You see, our body naturally tries to correct its own PH, but in doing this it causes damage to the body. Just what kind of damage happends when this occurs? I'm glad you asked. The symptoms of Calcium deficiency are numerous but some of them are: back pain, neck pain, and muscle cramps. While the symptoms of Magnesium deficiency include muscle cramps, cronic pain, mental stress, joint pain and the list goes on.  I have been trying to become more healthy (because I suffer from chronic pain), so that I can enjoy more time with my little ones while there is still time. Below are some ideas on how you can include these into you diet.

Magnesium in the diet:

Fish-Halibut and Tuna
Vegtables- Artichokes, Broccoli, Corn meal, chick peas, Spinach, potatoes, tomatoes and more
Fruit-Banana and dried Figs
Grains- Brown Rice Wheat Flour, Oat Bran and more
Nuts and nut milks which are fun to make

Calcium in the diet:
Vegtables: Green leafy vegtables like Spinach, kale, collard greens,

If you are taking supplements for calcium it is important to note that getting too much calcium is just as harmful as not getting enough as it causes the same damage. So if you are getting a lot of dietary calcium and taking a supplement and it doesn't seem to be doing any good check to see if you are taking too much.
Also not balancing your Calcium with Magnesium will result in damage because the two work hand in hand kind of like tension and release.

What has been your experience?
