You may not think about Magnesium when making sure you're getting the proper nutrients, but according to medical and naturopathic doctor, Dr. Carolyn Dean, it's one of the most important minerals. It activates muscles and nerves, creates energy and helps your digestive system among other things, yet, most people don't seem to get enough of it.

The other day, in a very early dawn, I sat down at my laptop, and felt very inspired to write.
It is the story, in a sense, of Cranial Therapy, a therapy that is incredibly beneficial, yet, a bit difficult to describe!
I hope sharing this story may bring a different perspective and better understanding to this amazing work!
Please read slowly……
My vision as a practitioner of Cranial Therapy:
Once upon time, I am walking the Land – the majestic land with its many lakes and its wide variety of animals. Today, I am the bare-handed Hunter. I am on a mission. I am going to catch the Healing Creature!
I am the creator of my own journey. Shhh! Listen. I need to catch it. I need silence; my six senses are up – emotion is my sixth sense; I feel with my heart. First, let me share with you that it has been a long journey with years of tracking, sensing, following my feelings. Today, now, I need to center, to calm myself. There is so much going on in my head – too much. I must allow myself to breathe, to relax now!
I feel better already. I feel the energy fluid along my spine. My spine is growing wider. My energy is expanding side-to-side and that is a great feeling – things start to happen. I need to open my eyes. There is so much going on around me. When the dust has settled I perceive a noise. “Follow your instincts” I was told by a master. The first thought is a good thought.
Something is happening to my left – far below next to the pond. What is catching my third eye? No, I cannot “see” it; my hands are holding the field of energy. There is so much going on that I’ve got to reset to go deeper. Perhaps letting go a little would help. Ah, now that’s better! My senses have deepened. I love it! I have arrived – here in the stillness, in the calm. The deeper energy field is larger, stronger, lighter, and calmer – here is a sense of closeness with Mother Nature. I am with it, part of it, no separation there, the Sacred has arrived.
It is so good here, in the now. There is a sense of freedom, of stillness, like nothing matters; just me and Nature. I could say Universal energy or even God’s field. Peace is here. I must let go of my agenda now. I’ve got a lot to do. Yet, the paradox is “not really”. There is not that much that I must do – in fact, almost nothing! I am not in charge here! Healing is happening! I just breathe and enjoy the ride, like during the most wonderful peaceful meditation.
I am present here. My hands are observing and feeling the waves, the undulations. Now, the wind has shifted here; something is happening. I get a sense of widening, stillness, and more changes, some opening. Freedom, realignment to the source! The beast has now rediscovered its inner tracks, the place where is has come from – back to the Source. I can perceive so many colors in the field; life is good! It’s time to go home for the day. I got exactly that I was longing for. I helped the beautiful beast to return home. Life is really good.
Thanks for letting me share my story to describe a session of Cranial Therapy. And, may I find you some days out there in the majestic land. Blessings!

Discover CranioSacral Therapy CST was pioneered and developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger following extensive scientific studies from 1975 to 1983 at Michigan State University, where he served as a clinical researcher and Professor of Biomechanics.
CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.
Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.
By complementing the body's natural healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including:
