Daily Feng Shui News for Nov 26th – ‘Pins & Needles’

We’ve all experienced the tingling sensation known as pins and needles. This is actually the result of defective neuro-transmissions, and it’s especially prevalent if you’ve stayed in one position for a prolonged period of time. One effective holistic treatment that I personally know works is to take magnesium supplementation. Magnesium is a mineral that is essential for an optimally working nervous system and for enhancing blood circulation. Start taking this supplement and the only pins and needles you’ll have are those you use for sewing.
