Manganese orotate against migraine
I stumbled across what
seems to be a panacea against migraine: manganese orotate. It is considered
to be a simple food supplement so it is not subject to
prescription. However do consult your doctor. Manganese is toxic in
high quantities. You will probably have to ask
your pharmacist to manufacture capsules, because tablets are not
yet commercially available.
A friend who is a pharmacist has suggested to clients
to give it a try. They were buying "heavy" drugs against
migraine. He says that 75% of these persons, who now
take manganese orotate every day, do no more need drugs. In 15% of
the cases, manganese orotate brought a significant relief but
the person still needs some pain medication. In the
remaining 10% of cases, there was no effect.
out that there is a huge difference between manganese orotate
and heavy medications. First of all: it does not loose its effect
overtime; it goes on protecting the person even after two years. Heavy
medications often lose their
effectiveness and must be changed. The other big
advantage is that there are no side effects (if the person is
taking the appropriate dose). It would even be the opposite: the persons
feel better, sleep better ...
Most people take 4 mg per day, in the morning
or noon. Some
people should not exceed 2 mg per day. He
knows two persons who must not exceed 1 mg per day. It is better to avoid starting
with 4 mg per day, because if it is not the appropriate dose,
there is a side effect: an unpleasant form of nervousness. Another reason to
increase the dose gradually, until you find the right balance,
is that in a few cases manganese orotate started by *triggering*
a migraine. People who have had this problem but have continued
to take manganese orotate, had no more migraine afterwards. Protection against migraine is established in a
few days time. It is better to start with 1 mg the
first few days. Then try 2 mg a day...
to a maximum of 4 mg per day, but stop increasing the dose as
soon as you feel a problem, like nervousness. You must
stabilize at a dose that has no downside. Continue with
this daily dose for a few weeks and see if it has, or not, an
effect on the migraines. In general,
people prefer not to take it in the evening because it wakes
them up. But some people sleep better if they take it
during the evening...
friend has of course never told any of these persons to stop
their medications. It would have been a serious breach of
the majority of them have stopped by themselves. And some of them now show an
anxiety at the idea of being short of manganese orotate.
When the intake of manganese orotate is stopped, the protection
against migraine will continue for about a week.
It all started with a friend who has very
strong migraines, which each time incapacitated him for a week.
Only the heaviest drugs helped but their side effects
are such that he was reluctant to take them. It was through him that I realized that it works. I gave him some,
one day that a migraine was starting. The migraine simply like melted
away... He was stunned by the strength of the effect. He
immediately started taking it regularly and helped evaluate the
correct daily dose. He still can have "a headache" or even a
"light" migraine but nothing comparable to the extreme pain he
experienced before. The dose that I gave him that day was greater
than 4 mg, which was a bit irresponsible. I do not know if this can be a shock
treatment against a migraine in progress. This
must first be studied scientifically. If it is taken only once,
a dose of 10 mg or 40 mg is not supposed to be dangerous. But this can only be done under medical
supervision, because it is a toxic dose.
I do not know why it is
imperative that the *orotate* salt of Manganese be used... Other salts of manganese, such as gluconate or
sulfate, seem ineffective. In
theory, manganese orotate can be more directly assimilated in
Manganese orotate is also effective against my toothache. It can
help ease anxiety or loose weight... There seem to be many cases
where it might be of use. I got interested in manganese because
of a correspondent who has Asperger syndrome like me. His
physician had extensively studied his problems and came up with
a prescription of omega-3 oil and manganese. This was very
successful. So I tried it out too. But the first sources of
manganese I took had no significant effect. I asked my
pharmacist to order a whole can of pure organic manganese salt
for me. He ordered several different ones, to allow me to
choose. I picked out manganese orotate... and the result when I
tried it out was astounding.
Orotic acid showed to be mutagenic in animal experimentations.
The human body naturally contains orotic acid. Breast milk
contains about 2 mg/l of orotic acid. Taking 4 mg of manganese
orotate a day should hardly increase the level of orotic acid in
the body hence it is probably not a significant danger. Yet for
someone who takes for exemple magnesium salts, there could be a
real danger to use magnesium orotate, because the doses can be
up to around a gram a day.
