I ended a 16 year relationship because my husband was a chronic Marijuana user. Now my new husband of 15 years has started using it on a daily basis to self medicate serious PTSD from 20 years in law enforcement. I absolutely despise this behavior but my husband has been wonderful up until this recent diagnosis. What should i do? I can’t even stand the smell of it in my house. We’re fighting all the time now when our relationship has been butterflies and rainbows until recently. I love him so much but have lost a lot of respect.
What a Godsend that you asked me this question. Perhaps you didn’t know that I wrote a book this past year on how to reverse PTSD. The book is called If You Think You Don’t Have PTSD: THINK AGAIN!
The impetus for my writing the book sprang from my falling in love with a State Trooper with serious PTSD! Long story short, like many people with PTSD, he needed to put himself in isolation to control the stimuli coming at him—a common reaction in PTSD sufferers. Long story short, he withdrew and broke my heart.
I vowed to search high and low to find a way to reverse PTSD, and I did.
For one year, I wrote a magazine column called “Winning the War on PTSD”. Each month, I presented the latest, published scientific research on what causes PTSD and what reverses it.
What I uncovered shocked me. There is a very simple solution and most doctors are so busy seeing patients that they don’t take the time to read the research journals and get informed on the latest research.
Here is the what the research says. All it takes is one accident, one illness or one stress for PTSD to occur. Who reaches adulthood without suffering one accident, one illness or one stressful event! Of course, police officers experience stress on a daily basis.
When we experience an accident, illness or stress, the body loses its magnesium stores.
The research is clear: The rapid loss of magnesium causes HPA-Axis dysfunction, which instantly triggers PTSD. It’s as simple as that.
Moreover, the research shows that supplementing with magnesium reverses PTSD. There is a lot of research proving this. Simple, but true.
There is a catch. Oral magnesium is not well absorbed by most people. Medicinal doses often cause digestive disturbances. The workaround is to apply the magnesium on the skin, which enables it to enter the bloodstream right away. I’ve watched PTSD literally vaporize in front of my eyes when my patients apply the magnesium to their skin. I know it seems too good to be true, but what I am telling you is the God’s truth.
I discovered Elektra Magnesium, the purest and most potent form of trans-dermal magnesium. I recommend Elektra to all my patients and TV/radio audiences. I don’t sell the product and I don’t make commission. I just recommend it as a public service. If you use the code dr.jamie, you will receive a discount on your first order. And, if you order 100 AUD, the shipping is free.
Elektra is beginning to sell on Amazon in the US. They have their most potent form of magnesium, the Magnesium Spritz Oil, on Amazon.
I encourage you and your guy to read my PTSD book. The science will convince you both.
By the way, many other conditions such as pain syndromes, sexual dysfunctions, mood disorders (depression, anxiety and even bi-polar disorder) digestive disorders and addictions are symptoms of PTSD.
Please be patient with your partner. His use of marijuana is a desperate attempt to calm down his nervous system. Yes, marijuana is a temporary relaxant but it doesn’t address the underlying cause of PTSD. The magnesium does. Magnesium is very powerful and potent natural tranquilizer.
By the way, here are a couple more facts for you:
Magnesium is needed in 1040 enzymatic bodily functions:
Most diseases and conditions are a magnesium deficiency in disguise;
Most people are deficient in magnesium because our food supply lacks essential nutrients due to depleted soil;
As we age, magnesium deficiency grows worse, which explains why we grow sicker as we age;
The prescribed drugs used to treat the conditions we develop flush magnesium from the body, which explains why people end up sicker as they pile on the drugs.
Last but not least, blood tests do not accurately measure our cellular magnesium level. This is because the body must maintain serum magnesium within a very narrow range or else a heart attack will occur. While the blood levels of magnesium may appear normal, most of us have raging cellular magnesium deficiency.
I urge you to read my book and see all the science proving what I have summarized above.
And get him (and yourself) on Elektra Magnesium right away.
I recommend the Spritz Oil for treating PTSD because it is the strongest formula that Elektra makes. He will need a minimum of 21 sprays per day in 3 divided doses. He will feel the benefit from the very first dose. It can take up to 2 years for the depleted cells to be fully replenished. Don’t worry about using too much. The body will draw the magnesium from the skin as needed. People will severe kidney damage may have trouble assimilating magnesium, but this problem is mitigated by applying the magnesium to the skin.
Please, please keep in touch with me and let me know how you’re both doing.
