The aim of a recent study was to investigate the effect of oral magnesium on asthma morbidity for children and adolescents. It was a randomized, placebo-controlled study that included 37 patients ages 7 to 19 suffering from moderate, persistent asthma. One group received magnesium 300 mg per day for two months. The second group received a placebo (fake pill). All patients received medication prescribed for asthma. The drugs were taken via inhalation.
The conclusion of the study was that the number of days with asthma attacks and the need to use inhalers was significantly lower in the group that was also supplemented with magnesium. The group on the placebo required higher dosages of the drugs.
TODAY'S WORD From Joel and Victoria
Take Off the Limits
Did you know you can limit your life by dwelling on the wrong things? So often, wrong thinking keeps people stuck right where they are. If you think you’ll never accomplish your dreams, then you’ll stay stuck where you are. If you think you don’t have the talent, the connections or the funds, then you are limiting yourself. We have to remember that God’s promises never return void. His Word stands true forever!
Don’t limit what God can do in your life by focusing on what you see in the natural realm. You have to realize that you serve a supernatural God, and just because you don’t see a way doesn’t mean that God doesn’t have a way. God can bring one opportunity across your path that will launch you to a whole new level. He has explosive blessings in store that can blast you out of where you are and into a place of abundance! Shift your focus from this limited realm, start looking at God’s supernatural realm, and see His unlimited possibilities for your future!
