About Morley Robbins
MAGNESIUM ADVOCACY GROUP Founder Morley M. Robbins (aka. “Magnesium Man”) has a mainstream medical industry background. That’s intriguing when you consider that he is now devoted to promoting natural and preventive health solutions.
Morley had been a hospital executive and consultant for 32 years when, several years ago, he developed a condition called “frozen shoulder.” His family doctor quickly recommended surgery as the only hope for Morley if he wanted to be able to lift his right hand above his waist ever again.
Friends who owned a health food store intervened and encouraged Morley to try chiropractic care. His initial response: “Thanks guys, but I don’t do witchcraft.”
Several months later, the pain was wearing on him, and his friends insisted.
It only took a couple weeks of “light touch chiropractic care” (Network Spinal Analysis) before his shoulder had full range of motion once again.
The experience was so life-changing for Morley, he questioned everything he knew — or thought he knew — about healing.
He left the world of hospital administration and became a Wellness Coach.
Morley Discovers Magnesium.
In July 2009, Morley read Carolyn Dean’s wonderful book The Magnesium Miracle. He realized that this was a key piece of the whole health puzzle that virtually no practitioners seemed to be aware of — even in the natural health world.
He was captivated by this mineral, and went on to read even more. Much more…
Twenty-one books and ~2,000 articles (and counting) on Magnesium and Magnesium deficiency, Morley has come to realize that Magnesium plays a role in all metabolic systems, and is therefore a contributing factor to nearly all major health issues.
Magnesium deficiency is the common thread for millions of Americans who are dealing with heart disease, diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis, cancer, general fatigue, and any chronic condition borne out of inflammation.
As Morley read and made connections between hundreds of scientific studies, what he found was shocking: Magnesium deficiency, or insufficiency, was at the center of all these common modern diseases due to its central role in activating 3,751 proteins, and thus thousands of enzyme systems (far more than the Internet figure of 300 enzyme pathways…).
It became increasingly easy to see why this family of Magnesium-related health problems would be so common in modern life. Over the past century, drinking water treatment and food processing has removed naturally-occurring Magnesium from our dietary environment. Meanwhile stressful lifestyles cause our bodies to burn through what little Magnesium we do have inside us. Furthermore, many prescription medications are known to cause Magnesium, and other mineral loss, as well.
Morley, in concert with his partner, “Dr. Liz” Erkenswick, DC, (who MAG-ically healed his shoulder…) began working with their clients on a program of natural healing, with particular emphasis on this “Magnesium deficiency issue.”
Because of Magnesium, their clients’ lives changed. Profoundly.
Their clients’ “need” for statins, anti-depressants, digestive meds, sleeping pills, and osteoporosis medications (just to name a few) were effectively offset by concerted efforts to manage their stress response, eating REAL foods rich in minerals, vitamins and fats, and undertaking protocols to restore bio-available Magnesium supplements. (3 Steps to Restore Magnesium)
Morley had read the published studies on how Magnesium repletion could help reverse high cholesterol, cure low-grade depression, stop insomnia, increase bone density, and support hundreds of other enzyme-dependent (and thus Magnesium-dependent) processes in the body…
But it was seeing the results in his clients’ lives that really galvanized his purpose.
Today, Morley views it as his life’s work to push back the tides of nutritional insanity and Magnesium deficiency in the day-to-day lives of inhabitants of Planet Earth!
Through MAG, he is committed to educating as many people as possible about the MAG–nificence of Magnesium and ending the epidemic of Magnesium deficiency plaguing the health and well-being of American society.
