Joining us on today’s podcast is Dr. Barb Woegerer, ND, a licensed Naturopathic Doctor and health advocate who has a clinical focus and passion in women’s health, stress management, inflammation, nutrition and a love for magnesium, which we talk about extensively today. Dr. Barb received her Doctor of Naturopathy degree from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, completed a 12-month clinical internship at The Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic as well as at Parkdale Queen West Community Health Center, and has completed a Bachelor’s of Science Honours Degree in Kinesiology and Psychology at York University.

Everything from its importance, to its high incidence of deficiency in humans these days and how to detect these, to its impact on so many health and well-being aspects in our lives are covered in detail. She also discusses the right magnesium to choose, the foods in which it is found in abundance, the use of Epsom salts, recommended supplements, and vitamin D activation. Indisputably an expert in the field of magnesium, Dr. Barb provides a masterclass in its many benefits here today which will undoubtedly result in listeners joining Walker on ‘that magnesium train’ to health.

I loved this episode! So informative! My 10 year old daughter has suffered from headaches especially over this last year. I found the popular kids magnesium formula called Natural Vitality CALM. It has magnesium carbonate and magnesium glycinate. It also has natural flavor in it which I don’t love b I know this is a really popular supplement for kids. What do you think about the magnesium carbonate and is there another magnesium supplement you recommend for children suffering headaches and stress?
