Magnesium is a key mineral for the body. However, women with endometriosis are believed to have a lower magnesium levels. The irony is that magnesium is believed to help reduced cramping, so our demand for it is higher, and our levels are lower.1
There are many forms of magnesium. Recently, I’ve experimented with three non-pill options:
Magnesium soak: This foot soak is the most time consuming, but also has multiple benefits.
Magnesium gel: I place about a grape-sized amount on the soles of my feet at bedtime.
Magnesium powder: Mix with water and drink about an hour before bed.
