The 12 laws of karma

Karma has a bit of a negative connotation here in the West. When you hit your toe after using a swear word, people will quickly say ‘karma’s a b****’.

Yet even when the underlying causes of stress are dealt with and removed, symptoms can persist. One reason for this is a lack of one of the most vital nutrients for the human body in our 21st century diet, namely magnesium.
