Did you know that magnesium sulfate helps reduce the symptoms of acute asthma?

What is magnesium sulfate? Magnesium Sulfate is commonly called Epsom salt.

Magnesium sulfate is the primary substance that causes the absorption of sound in seawater.Absorption, in this case, means the conversion of acoustic energy to heat energy. The sound appears to be absorbed into the ocean. The conversion is a strong function of frequency, lower frequencies are less affected by the salt, so that the acoustic energy travels much farther in the ocean.

Sodium chloride is the most common salt in the sea, but it has no effect on sound absorption. Boric acid is the second substance found in seawater that has some effect on absorption, but it is a distant second to magnesium sulfate.

In agriculture and gardening, magnesium sulfate is used to correct magnesium deficiency in soil (magnesium is an essential element in the chlorophyll molecule). It is most commonly applied to potted plants, or to magnesium-hungry crops, such as potatoes, roses, tomatoes, peppers and cannabis. The advantage of magnesium sulfate over other magnesium soil amendments (such as dolomitic lime) is its high solubility.

Magnesium is a naturally occurring mineral. Magnesium is important for many systems in the body especially the muscles and nerves. Magnesium sulfate also increases water in the intestines, which may induce defecation.(taking a dump)

Oral magnesium sulfate, or magnesium hydroxide, is commonly used as a saline laxative. Epsom salt is also available in a gel form for topical application in treating aches and pains.

Indications for its use are

Replacement therapy for hypomagnesemia.

Magnesium sulfate is the first-line antiarrhythmic agent for Torsades de pointes in cardiac arrest under the 2005 ECC guidelines as well as managing Quinidine-induced arrythmias.

As a bronchodilator after beta-agonist and anticholinergic agents have been tried, e.g. in severe exacerbations of asthma.[6] Recent studies have revealed that magnesium sulfate can be nebulized to reduce the symptoms of acute asthma.[6] It is commonly administered via the intravenous route for the management of severe asthma attacks.

Users of Epsom salt in the gel form have reported significant and lasting reduction of pain associated with fibromyalgia and osteoporosis.[citation needed]
A 2004 research study showed that both magnesium and sulfate are absorbed through the skin when bathing in 1% solution.[7]

Magnesium sulfate can be used to treat eclampsia in pregnant women.[8]
Magnesium sulfate can also delay labor in the case of premature labor, to delay preterm birth.

Intravenous magnesium sulfate may be able to prevent cerebral palsy in preterm babies.[9]

Solutions of sulfate salts such as Epsom salt may be given as first aid for Barium chloride poisoning.

Magnesium sulfate paste has been used as an agent for dehydrating (drawing) boils, carbuncles and abscesses.

Magnesium sulfate solution has also been shown to be an effective aid in the fight against blemishes and acne when applied directly to problematic areas, usually in poultice form.

Magnesium sulfate when used through soaking, can soothe muscle pains and help improve rough patches in the skin.

The body's magnesium level increases when soaking with magnesium sulfate which is necessary for serotonin, a mood-regulating neurotransmitter that may increase feelings of relaxation and well-being.[10]

Soaking in a warm bath containing Epsom Salt (magnesium sulfate) can be beneficial to soothe and relieve Herpes outbreak symptoms, such as itching and lesions relating to Genital Herpes and Shingles.[11][12]

Did you know that Phillip J. Berg filled a lawsuit against Obama?

The only thing this Berg seem good at is hating on Obama... He continues with these frivolous law suits challenging Obama citizenship. Although when he goes to Court, and it gets dismissed and he continues on with his bogus crimes of filing false lawsuits! To make matters worse, he even as the nerve to ask for donation... What a sham! I have listened to this crock pot make his claims and allegations based simply on what he thinks... The ideal of truth needs to take place at some point, right? He wants to look at the mans birth certificate, his college grades, his pass port. Now what does all this have to do with the price of tea in china? Mr Bergs notion is because Obama will not provide his information that he must not be a citizen??? Lets look at it like this, maybe when he was born, if family knew that he was going to be the man... So they developed this conspiracy theory to protect Obama. So after 45 plus years they have concealed his information just so that he could become president? Corny, yea... So why can this Berg not get how silly his allegations sound... I have said enough, you read and listen and tell me what you think.

Obama appeals to Supreme Court
Posted on October 4, 2008 by goesdownbitter
Update October 26th, 2008: Philip Berg has appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the ruling against his lawsuit. The case is Berg v. Obama, No. 08-cv-04083
“I am totally disappointed by Judge Surrick’s decision and, for all citizens of the United States, I am immediately appealing to the U.S. Supreme Court. This is a question of who has standing to uphold our Constitution. If I don’t have standing, if you don’t have standing, if your neighbor doesn’t have standing to question the eligibility of an individual to be President of the United States - the Commander-in-Chief, the most powerful person in the world - then who does? So, anyone can just claim to be eligible for congress or the presidency without having their legal status, age or citizenship questioned. According to Judge Surrick, we the people have no right to police the eligibility requirements under the U.S. Constitution.”
Update October 24th, 2008: A federal judge in Philadelphia last night threw out a complaint by a Montgomery County lawyer who claimed that Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama was not qualified to be president and that his name should be removed from the Nov. 4 ballot.
Judge rejects Montco lawyer’s bid to have Obama removed from ballot, By MICHAEL HINKELMAN, Philadelphia Daily News
Update October 22nd, 2008: The Federal Election Commission files petition to dismiss based on plaintiffs lack of constitutional jurisdiction.
Out in the Bitter Hinterlands the question of whether Barack Obama is eligible under the Constitution of the United States of America has long been in doubt.
This link to What’s your evidence? is a detailed legal rejection of the Philip Berg lawsuit. In the comment thread below is additional information.
The Philadelphia Times-Herald reports here of a motion to dismiss the lawsuit of Philip Berg against Barack Obama on September 26th, 2008. [Note: The Times-Herald link is no longer active.] The text of the Philip Berg’s rejection of the move to dismiss is dated September 29th, 2008. The entire case history is here.[New filings are posted weekly. Read the latest entry by scrolling down.]
The lawsuit alleges that Barack Obama was in fact born in Kenya and thus ineligible to be president. Berg’s latest order demands Obama’s “vault” version ( certified copy of his “original” long version ) Birth Certificate; and a certified copy of Obama’s Certification of Citizenship; a certified copy of Obama’s Oath of Allegiance.
Posted on Barack Obama’s website Fight The Smears is his Hawai’ian birth certificate and this statement:
“When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom’s dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.‘s children.Since Sen. Obama has neither renounced his U.S. citizenship nor sworn an oath of allegiance to Kenya, his Kenyan citizenship automatically expired on Aug. 4,1982.”
A broader issue however is that even though Barack was certainly born in Hawai’i when Obama was possibly adopted by Lolo Soetoro around age six that meant that Barack’s name was changed to Barry Soetoro and he may have become an Indonesian citizen as a child. This also means that the birth certificate posted on Fight The Smears would have been sealed per adoption laws in Hawai’i and a new record created listing Lolo Soetoro as the father. This documentation has never been shown. As with Kenya, Indonesia did not allow dual-citizenship at that time.
The Constitution of the United States of AmericaArticle IISection 1.[Paragraph 5:] No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.
