#47: Magnesium with Kristen Bowen | An Essential Mineral That We Often Forget Discover with Dr. Dan | Proactive Health

    • Nutrition

It took a complete health crash to lead Kristen Bowen to create Living the Good Life Naturally in 2002. Autoimmune issues and a series of failed surgeries left Kristen bed ridden and depressed with daily seizures. Through research and looking for outside the box solutions, she discovered that to regain her health, she needed to build a strong foundation. That foundation included Food Is Medicine and the number one building block for optimal health: magnesium. She discovered that oral magnesium was not effective and began using liquid magnesium as a foot soak, finding that the body could utilize it more effectively. As Kristen’s health improved, she began to research and create natural bath and body products for herself, family, and friends with skin sensitivities. She began sharing her knowledge as she researched and found clean sources of whole food supplements and minerals. She never intended to start a business, but friends offered to pay her for her products and advice. Living the Good Life Naturally was created.

“It’s when you’re in that calcium dominant environment that bones become brittle and that there are issues. Now, it didn’t happen overnight and it didn’t happen in six months, but my bones now are stronger than they were as a 30 year old and I no longer have that diagnosis.” 25:20
