This is one of a collection of the first clinical moves made by experienced clinicians as they describe what they do when they are caring for their chronically ill patients:

I give magnesium. Most people in America are low in serum mag. It is a co-factor in more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. Mag has been shown to slow cognitive decline in older people. I like mag threonate in cases with nerve pain or mag malate. But, I tell patients to find a brand that is not made from rice. I have them open the capsule and take a tiny amount to start with and build up slowly. But, they should wear a mask when doing so as mag powder in the lungs can be irritating. – physician
