1 Corinthians 3:16
Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
Know your body and the things that happen to it!
Most women who crave chocolate during their “time of the month” seldom realise that this craving for chocolate is because their bodies are deficient in magnesium and chocolate is a source of magnesium.
When you are exposed to continuous stress, you become irritable & easily fatigued, and you lose your ability to concentrate. Your blood 🩸 pressure may begin to creep up because adrenaline levels increase in your blood. 🩸
It is under these conditions, magnesium is released from your blood 🩸 cells and goes into your blood plasma. From there it is excreted in the urine.
This stress-induced depletion of magnesium is more dramatic in those with type-a personalities who are competitive and known to be prone to heart 💓 disease.
It is interesting to note that when an individual suffers a heart 💓 attack magnesium is administered immediately! Magnesium helps to regulate heart rhythms 💓and thins the blood.🩸
Another benefit of magnesium is its ability to relax arteries, thereby lowering blood 🩸 pressure.
Almonds, bananas 🍌, dates,broccoli 🥦, tuna, millet, green beans, watermelon🍉 & fiber are good sources of magnesium.
Therefore, know your body is meant to be a temple.
Eat right, exercise daily, sleep well, and praise your way into soul-victory to avoid all forms of stress caused by prolonged taking care of a sick person, dealing with hormonal issues, dealing with rebellious teenagers, financial problems, marital problems or anything else that continues to give you prolonged stress!
