Magnesia muriatica is homeopathic remedy for a wide range of health ailments. Also known as magnesium chloride, it has been used for treating liver troubles, chest complaints, and other diseases. It is available in liquid, tablet, and granule forms.

Muriate magnesia is created by combining hydrochloric acid with ammonia and magnesia. Two equal parts of hydrochloric acid are separated. One part is neutralized with ammonia, while the other is neutralized with magnesia. The products of these two solutions are then mixed, allowed to evaporate, and combined to yield chloride of magnesium. This white crystalline product is water soluble.

Anxiety, headaches, insomnia, vertigo, and restlessness have been treated by magnesia muriatica. Constipation can be relieved from the homeopathic medicine. Some of the chest complaints the homeopathic remedy is known to aid or cure include heart palpitations and shortness of breath. Toothaches can be treated with the alternative medicine as well.

The remedy is said to be one of the best available for liver problems, especially if the liver is enlarged or in pain, or if jaundice is present. The same concept applies for an extended abdomen, nausea, colic, poor digestion, cramps, vomiting, tenderness, swelling, flatulence, and other stomach issues. Tapeworms and other intestinal parasites may be cured with magnesia muriatica.

Problems of the bladder, such as trouble with urination, have been treated with magnesia muriatica. Uterine spasms are similarly medicated. Night sweats may be alleviated through use of the solution. Ear ringing, back pain, limb numbness, joint pain, frequent cramping of the legs, arm numbness upon waking, nightmares, heavy perspiration, muscle spasms, and pelvic pain may also be remedied with the homeopathic treatment.

Sailors have found magnesia muriatica to be helpful in relieving some of their health issues. Chest congestion from being at sea has been treated with the solution. Homeopaths have also prescribed the remedy for chest colds from the seashore and salt exposure, as well as body shocks. General weakness from being at sea, and sensitivity to the cold have both been treated with magnesia muriatica.

In the past, some doctors have prescribed magnesia muriatica for so-called "women's hysteria." The remedy was used for cases of post-dinner nausea or fainting spells in particular. It has also been called a remedy for ill-behaved children. Though these problems have since either been discredited, or treated as better understood ailments, the remedy can still be used as a general nerve tonic for both sexes.

@alisha-- Do you also get headaches and sweat a lot while sleeping?

I have the same symptoms you mentioned but also headaches and sweating and I am taking magnesia muriatica for it. I am seeing some difference, the headaches have lessened and the sweating has stopped entirely but I still feel a little restless and anxious at night. I think it's also helped my period to be more regular. It might be beneficial for you as well.

The only side effect that I experienced from it is diarrhea but it lasted just for a few days. I guess there could be other side effects, for example, if you are allergic to it. Other than that, it doesn't have much side effects.

@alisha-- Actually it's not uncommon for homeopathic remedies to be used for various illnesses and magnesium chloride is definitely one of them.

It is generally known for treating the liver but is also used as an additional medicine for headaches, breathing problems and bowel movements. This doesn't mean that the same amounts are used for treating all of these. Homeopathic doctors usually prescribe more than one medicine to treat a problem and magnesium chloride can be one of those.

I have heard that it is also beneficial for anxiety symptoms, which seems to be what you're having. I couldn't say for sure though. I think you should see a homeopathic doctor again and tell them what the issue is. Whatever it is, they will make the best judgment about whether you should use magnesium chloride or not and will generally provide it to you as well.

Also speak with your family doctor, especially if you are on any medications right now. You wouldn't want the homeopathic medicine and your regular medicine to clash and cause adverse side effects.

I have never seen so many different types of benefits listed for a homeopathic medicine before. How does it have such wide ranging effects?

And what are some of the side effects of using this?

I was recommended to take this by a homeopathic doctor once but didn't. I am restless, especially at night time. It just feels like something bad is going to happen, I don't feel good.

Would magnesia muriatica be a good supplement for these symptoms?
