As in, number 7 Schuessler tissue salt, magnesium phosphate. The “hot 7” is a simple drink:
- Dissolve 5 to 10 crushed magnesium phosphate tablets in half to a full cup of hot water
- Allow the lactose to sink to the bottom
- Sip, holding the drink in the mouth for a few seconds
It works well on headaches, muscle spasms, cramps, nerves and constipation. Next time you feel a migraine coming on, cramps, or had a stressful day, try a hot 7 before taking any pain medication. It can often prevent the need for anything else.
In an earlier post you can read more about why magnesium is so important and why we are not getting enough. The hot 7 is a great way to take advantage of the Schuessler magnesium phosphate to replenish our magnesium levels.
Magnesium phosphate does work particularly well with this method. The hot water improves the absorption of the magnesium through the mucous membrane of the mouth.
A word of caution: It should be taken into consideration that electromagnetic radiation (tvs, computer screens, etc) do use up a fair amount of magnesium. Coffee will also use up your store of magnesium. So, if you do want to drink the hot 7, don’t do it right before a cup of coffee or tea, as this will negate all the benefits. Wait a half hour and then drink the coffee or tea. Use that time to relax with a hot water bottle.
