Two days ago Domehead couldn't eat but tried. His jaws were cracking and he managed a piece or two, but yesterday he couldn't even eat that much. I know he's dying but I didn't understand what was going on.
This morning I had magnesium chloride in my tea, and ate well the rest of the day. This evening, I noticed how dry my mouth was. That's when I realised what work the mag chlor was doing - it was allowing my stomach acids to function better! It wasn't the magnesium part so much as the chloride part doing the work during the new moon.
We need chlorides to form hydrochloric acid in the stomach, which also encourages the salivary glands to do their work. Iodides probably do the same work in the thyroid gland. Without these two, I think New Moon is very harsh on the body because the acids which are formed by the body aren't soft but hard - thick bile, thick saliva, thick pus. Acids probably allow fluidity.
