Stress, Magnesium and Mental Health:
What You Need to Know
Featured Speaker: Rick Malter
Dr. Rick Malter will discuss the profound effect that intense stress has on mental health and psychological functioning. He will show how stress depletes a person’s magnesium levels in brain and body cells. Magnesium deficiency also is involved in depression, bipolar disorder, and ADHD. Henry Schroeder, MD observed that minerals are the “spark plugs” of life. Magnesium is the major spark plug among all of the minerals.
Rick Malter, Ph.D. earned his MA degree in psychology and human development from the University of Chicago in 1964. He earned his Ph.D. degree in School and Educational Psychology from the University of Illinois in 1971. Dr. Malter passed the Illinois psychologist licensing exam in 1969. He also became an Illinois licensed nutrition counselor in 1996. In 1980, when Dr. Malter was struggling with his own stress burnout, he was introduced to the importance of minerals and, especially magnesium, in recovering from stress burn out using hair tissue mineral analysis. Dr. Malter has published several articles relating stress, minerals, and psychological problems. He also published 2 books, The Strands of Health on minerals and Shrinking the Judge: Freeing the Inner Child.
