guys think?

I have to be me; no one else wants the job!

Praise God and Pass the Ammo!

If only my Aunt had balls she'd be my Uncle!


1. I don't think that would work.

2. I don't think they had fibro to start with.
I will put you in the trunk, and help people look for you, DON'T TEST ME.


As Robby said I don't thin so if it was that easy many of us would be cured. I take magnesium for muscle cramps so maybe this guy was mineral deficient? Maybe he was self diagnosed as well?


I'm not saying that it might not change something in your body, just that we have no idea if that is the right thing for you.  Simple cures almost never deal with the real issues.  In this case, I'm in total agreement that either this person made this tale up or the person they were talking to never suffered from fibro.

Low magnesium is linked to muscle twitches, muscle cramping, difficulty thinking, fatigue, and muscle weakness, so... it is always a possibility.  From my understanding, magnesium is better processed by the body when taken in concert with calcium and potassium.  Having the doc take a look at your potassium, calcium, and magnesium levels is always a good idea.  If you are in the low or low-normal range, supplements may help.

...but alkaline water???  Another one of those "blood type" things I keep having crazy people yack in my ear.  "You have to eat according to your blood type" which has no medical basis.  Alkaline water is mainly made by adding bicarbonate soda to tap water and sold at enormous profits.  It's a scam!!
Where God leads, His hand always provides keep Calm and code on....



If it sounds too good to be true ... It probably is.

Blood tests are easy enough and should show if there is a lack of anything, otherwise it sounds like a waste of time, effort, and $$$$.
Times are tough when "Happy Hour" is your nap.
My mind not only wanders, sometimes it leaves completely!


I was told acid body hurts you but i was addicted to alca selzer(sic)and my body was still acid.
I think it takes a whole lot more than that.

It is what it is...
