Health Insurance is Big Business

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Monday, July 27, 2015
If you didn’t know before that health insurance is BIG business you’ll know it when you read the following headlines. Anthem Inc. a US health insurance company is buying out rival Cigna in a deal valued at $54.2 billion.

But let me start by asking, just what are we paying for when we are forced to buy health insurance? Here’s what I recently found out. I went to a HMO clinic with a friend for her first appointment with a primary care doctor. She wanted several skin lesions looked at and a referral for a colonoscopy.

Here’s what her appointment looked like: She was asked to fill out a very brief medical history form. A medical technician (not a nurse) weighed her in the hallway of this very large clinic. She was told she could leave her shoes on. Her blood pressure was taken over her clothes. She was not given a gown for her physical exam. In fact, when she saw the doctor he didn’t even touch her. She mentioned her skin lesions and asked if she should get up and go over to his desk for him to examine them because he made no move to come to her. He said not to bother, that he would have a technician come in and take a picture of the worst skin lesion and send it to a dermatologist to see if she needed a referral. She has a history of previous intestinal polyps, which were removed on her last colonoscopy 8 years ago and a positive family history of fatal colon cancer but instead of an immediate referral she was given a fecal stool test kit for blood in the stool to determine IF she was eligible for a colonoscopy. I cannot express how shocked I was at this absolute disregard for proper medical attention and the fact that the staff and doctor could easily have been replaced by a bright 10-year old.

Cigna and Anthem are both publicly traded companies. I know very little about the stock market but I do know that a company that trades its stock is not beholding to the public that it serves, but to its stock holders to give them the most money possible in their quarterly dividends. Such companies will always look for the bottom line of saving money. As far as I can tell from the stories my clients tell me – health insurance companies spend a lot of time and effort on denying services and procedures to their customers instead of giving people the therapies they require.

With a merger like this we would hope they will reduce costs and overhead etc. and GIVE US LOWER PREMIUMS for the health insurance we are forced to purchase. But that’s not what’s being reported in the media.

One CNN Money reporter said that “Some doctors are concerned that the mergers will put too much power in just a handful of insurance companies. The American Medical Association said the mergers will ‘reduce competition and decrease choice.’ There are also worries that costs for customers will go up because of less competition.

Now that there are only 3 major health insurance companies we can say goodbye to the possibility of alternative medicine being covered and we are left to fend for ourselves.

Now a word from our sponsor! I’ve been studying and researching for decades against this possibility and I know I’ve found the perfect set of formulas that can help everyone achieve balanced health. They are the Completement Formulas! I also make myself available for questions for two hours on my radio show, Dr. Carolyn Dean Live every Monday at 4pm PST. Please join me tomorrow.

Atrial Fibrillation: Remineralize Your Heart -My New Book

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Saturday, July 25, 2015
I am bouncing off the walls with excitement today because Atrial Fibrillation: Remineralize Your Heart ($2.99) is up on the Amazon-Kindle store! I’m also totally jumping the gun here because I don’t have it up on my website yet as a PDF document for folks who don’t have Kindle. But I will announce the launch of the PDF version soon.

Here’s the description of the book that I put on Kindle:

“Atrial Fibrillation, an electrical disruption of the rhythm of the heart, is occurring in epidemic proportions. Medicine says there is no cure and only offers drugs and surgery for the symptoms. Because of my own heart palpitations, I searched for an effective treatment for many years. That treatment I found is based on the right kind of magnesium – one that doesn’t give you a laxative effect – well-absorbed multiple minerals and proper hydration with water and sea salt or Himalayan salt. Giving your heart the necessary minerals overcomes the electrical disruption and balances your heart rhythm. Atrial Fibrillation: Remineralize Your Heart walks you through the possible triggers for this condition and uncovers their basis in magnesium deficiency. Numerous case histories help you realize that you don’t necessarily have a heart condition, you have a magnesium deficiency condition that can be treated.”

All I’ve ever wanted to achieve with my thousands of books, articles, blogs and print, audio and visual interviews is to help propel you into your place of power to be in charge of your body and to be in control of your health.

With the help of countless people with AFib who have taught me what I know and testimonials from recovered AFibbers, I have written a book that will help you get your life back.

Over the years I’ve tried to educate people about lifestyle and diet as the basis for health but more and more people kept asking me what supplements to take for their problems. I consulted with patients who were on dozens of supplements and I knew there had to be a better way. And I found it. I make no apologies for the fact that this book outlines a treatment protocol that I created for my own heart palpitations and that uses my 4 Completement Formulas that can meet most of your nutrient and therapeutic requirements.

I’ve been using and recommending my Completement Formulas, especially ReMag for several years and have accumulated enough clinical evidence to know that it’s the best absorbed, most therapeutic and effective magnesium there is. People with severe magnesium deficiency, who were forced to take several IV magnesium treatments per week because they developed diarrhea from oral magnesium, have switched to ReMag only to find that their magnesium blood levels increase and their overall health improves.

Please pass this information about Atrial Fibrillation: Remineralize Your Heart along to anyone you know who has AFib, to the AFib Forums, and to health sites and let people know that much of AFib is really a magnesium deficiency and not heart disease. I know people with AFib and doctors may fight this message but in my world, the proof is in the pudding as people discover the Miracle of Magnesium.

If you want to get their attention, point out that I received “The Arrhythmia Alliance Outstanding Medical Contribution to Cardiac Rhythm Management Services Award 2012″ at The Heart Rhythm Congress organized by the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS), Sept 23-26, 2012. For me, getting that award was not enough – I wanted to write this book to show people that they can get better, that AFib can be eliminated. And in those cases where the structural damage to the heart is too extensive and my protocol is not enough, they can have their ablation and cardioversion procedures as long as they keep taking their magnesium.

Go GoodGopher.com

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Thursday, July 23, 2015
I’ve often complained that there is way too much misleading health information on the Internet. Drug companies control health websites and promote drug solutions while attacking or dismissing alternatives. The public is constantly being fed a biased media diet making them afraid to go outside the allopathetic model. Former drug company and medical industry executives grab jobs in the supplement and health field claiming they are turning over a new leaf but they often bring the highly-competitive medical model with them.

Now, humanitarian and visionary, Mike Adams, is leveling the playing field with a new and untainted Internet search engine. You may have already read his article titled: Health Ranger launches world’s first search engine that favors New Media while banning corporate and government propaganda: GoodGopher.com.

I identify Mike Adams as a humanitarian and visionary because control of the media is our greatest challenge and Mike is smart enough to realize that. From personal experience I know that my own message has been tainted over the years by a medical establishment who attacked me for saying the truth about sugar. Mike published my side of the story on NaturalNews.com in “The Medical Monopoly.”

Drug advertising, which makes up 70% of mainstream media advertising is banned from GoodGopher. Also, there will be no cyberbullies or cyberterrorists trying to discredit their competition or discredit doctors who practice alternatives. I’m not going to whine and complain about the attacks on me because every time I’ve been cyberbullied, I’ve come out the winner. But all this false information and the biased attacks on alternative medicine confuses the public so much that often they just give up trying to find the truth.

Please use GoodGopher.com for all your health-related questions. And, as Mike says in his article you can be part of making this search engine work for you: “To maintain search results quality, GoodGopher search results can be LIKED or FLAGGED by users. Websites with high numbers of LIKED search results receive a boost in search results relevancy, making GoodGopher a search engine weighted in part by crowdsourced votes in the positive direction.”

Magnesium & Knee Arthritis

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Tuesday, July 21, 2015
I’ve been writing about arthritis and magnesium for years. In a 2011 blog, Magnesium & Arthritis, I gave a testimonial about a 78-year old woman with arthritis at the base of her thumbs. A steroid shot in the left thumb did help but she didn’t want to chance another shot in her right thumb. Instead she decided to spray her right thumb every morning and night with 2 bursts of magnesium oil. Not only did the pain go away but she had much better range of motion of her thumb because she was able to stretch out her shortening thumb tendons.

In The Magnesium Miracle, I list the Top Ten Improvements that Jane experienced on magnesium. Number one was: Less Knee Pain. I commented that “Our knees take the brunt of our weight. The knee is just a simple hinge joint that is held in place by the thigh and leg muscles. If those muscles are tight or in spasm, that alone can cause a slight displacement of the knee, which over time can turn into what medicine calls ‘knee arthritis.’ However, instead of immediately going on pain medication or undergoing knee surgery to ‘clean out the joint,’ magnesium is the treatment of choice.

In The Journal of Rheumatology, July, 2015, a group of researchers decided to look at the relationship between knee arthritis and magnesium levels. Their research was based on the fact that magnesium, along with calcium, is crucial for good bone and muscle health. They said that magnesium, unlike calcium, can’t be readily stored in the body and a new supply is needed daily.

I do think that magnesium is held in reserve for emergencies, but I found it extremely interesting that these researchers say we need a daily supply of magnesium. They also said that magnesium ensures that the calcium you take in actually gets to your bones. Magnesium does this by suppressing a hormone called PTH produced by the parathyroid gland, which erroneously pulls the calcium away from the bones to be held in muscle.

When magnesium and calcium are in the right balance, a hormone called calcitonin, produced by calcium, assists in this suppression, ensuring that adequate calcium stays in the bone.  For this reason, it is thought that low magnesium may be involved in osteoarthritis.

The study measured blood levels of magnesium in 2855 subjects and compared those levels to X-ray evidence of knee arthritis. They were able to easily identify that higher magnesium blood levels correlate to less knee arthritis. So, that’s the take-away, folks. The higher your magnesium intake and magnesium levels the less chance you will have of developing arthritis.

Ruining Kale’s Image

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, July 19, 2015
Mother Jones magazine knew just what they were doing when they titled their July 15, 2015 article: “Sorry, Foodies: We’re About to Ruin Kale.”

As soon as the article came out, my agent for The Magnesium Miracle emailed and asked me what I thought of the article. I scanned it quickly and wrote back saying “I think this has to do with the fad of raw green drinkers who down enormous amounts of kale, which is how the thallium can build up.”

Yes, kale and the other brassica vegetables are a good way to get thallium out of the soil – the poison is preferentially absorbed through brassica roots. When you juice vast quantities of kale grown in high thallium soil, you concentrate that poison in your body.

I do think it’s a matter of the amount of kale you drink or eat – a leaf or two of kale a day may be just fine. But I still think Mother Jones should have done some more research before scaring people with this story. Now people are going to avoid kale or be afraid of it and miss out on the benefits.

Thallium is a poison and I first recall hearing about it as a Thallium Stress Test for the heart. All the definitions of this test talk about thallium being tagged with radioactivity to assess blood flow and blockages but they don’t mention that it’s a poison in and of itself. Why they continue to use it is another mystery of allopathetic medicine.

As I’ve said before, I’m not a big fan of the 140-ounce green drink diet because I’ve had these faddists test low on magnesium and display magnesium deficiency heart palpitations and leg cramps. They assume they are getting lots of minerals with their juice diet but if the soil doesn’t have the minerals then the plants can’t possibly have them either.

If you read the Mother Jones article, it quotes another magazine and a story about people at a Marin County clinic who turned up with hard-to-diagnose symptoms that were finally thought to be due to higher than normal levels of thallium in the blood.

There is only a small amount of thallium in the Earth’s crust, so it mainly comes from coal burning plants, cement plants, oil drilling, smelting, and medical waste.

What’s the take-away from this story? Eat and drink everything in moderation – except, take lots of ReMag – which actually, along with ReMyte and ReAline help you detoxify any thallium that finds its way into your body!

Heart Disease Linked With Osteoporosis

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, July 12, 2015
This study just confirms that magnesium deficiency causes osteoporosis. Here’s what happens – when you have heart disease you take medications and those meds cause magnesium deficiency. When you are magnesium-deficient, you develop osteoporosis. And now the studies are proving just that.

The July 2015 issue of Osteoporosis International uncovered this association in a New Scanning Study. But what will allopathic medicine do with this information? Mostly likely they will do the opposite of what they should do. They will order more bone density tests and begin using high doses of calcium and vitamin D and osteoporosis drugs earlier in people with heart disease!

It astounds me that they can be so close to the truth but ignore it completely. They even say that “the two conditions may have a common cause…bone metabolism and vascular physiology share several regulatory factors, and the process of vascular calcification in many ways resembles that of bone formation.” Which brings us right back to magnesium deficiency – a door that remains locked to allopathetic medicine.

That’s not a typo, it’s not allopathic medicine; it’s now and forevermore allopathetic medicine!

Google my name, calcium, vitamin D and magnesium and see the long list of blogs about high dose calcium and vitamin D causing magnesium deficiency. In Build Better Bones, I talk about the side effects of osteoporosis drugs.

Instead of looking for the real reason that heart disease and osteoporosis are associated, the researchers are all giddy about the new toy they used to measure bone density in this study. I presume they are doing studies to prove what an important and righteous tool it is so the manufacturer can sell them to every hospital and clinic in the world! It’s a high-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HR-pQCT) that assesses bone geometry, density, and microstructure of the wrist and ankle bone.

With CT scanning comes the question of the amount of radiation you are exposed to – and the answer was very difficult to obtain. What they do say is that initially, a scout view is obtained to determine a precise region for the three-dimensional measurement. Then each site (wrist and ankle) includes 110 computerized tomography slices, which takes about 3 min to fully scan.

I don’t know about you but one chest x-ray is already too much. One click for a chest x-ray exposes you to a radiation dose of 20 μSv. But THREE MINUTES is a LONG time to be radiated. Even cancer radiation treatments only last a few minutes.

They say that a single-scan radiation dose is less than 5 μSv. The international recommendation for an average annual dose for planned radiation exposure must not exceed 20 μSv/year. Since radiation in the body is accumulative, they don’t recommend more than three scans at a time from the HR-pQCT.

To Test or Not To Test? Over the years I’ve counseled my patients and clients about testing. My general rule is that if the test will tell you something that you can do something positive about – get the test. If the test, in this case, for bone density, gives your doctor ammunition to tell you to take an osteoporosis drug, which you have sworn you will never take anyway – then why do the test?

Instead of taking drugs with a long list of side effects, go to my blog: Build Better Bones and follow the advice of 88-year old Berei who miraculously increased her bone density by 18% with ReMag, ReMyte and a T-Tapp Exercise Program.

NSAIDs Can Cause Heart Attack and Stroke

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, July 10, 2015
I’ve written about the dangers of NSAIDs in the following blogs: Magnesium the Safe & Effective Anti-inflammatory and Magnesium & Arthritis. Now, the FDA Strengthens NSAID Warning for Heart, Stroke Risks because earlier warnings didn’t seem to reduce the death rate from these drugs.

In fact, I don’t know what FDA drug warnings are for if not to tell doctors to stop using these drugs – and maybe switch to something safe, like ReMag. But I realize the warnings are probably put in place to prevent lawsuits because the doctors and drug companies can just say “We told you so!” if you try to sue them for drug side effects, and there is nothing you can do about it.

Here’s what the warning says:

· Heart attack or stroke risk can increase as early as the first weeks of NSAID use, and the risk may increase with longer NSAID use. The risk appears to be greater at higher doses.

· A large number of studies show that patients with or without heart disease or risk factors for heart disease are at increased risk for heart attack or stroke.

· Patients are at increased risk for heart failure with NSAID use.

I think the most interesting part of the warning is that it’s not just the people with heart disease that are at risk but ANYONE can suffer heart attack or stroke when they take NSAIDs.

Here is a list of NSAIDs, some of which have been completely withdrawn from the market because of the damage they have caused:

Ibuprofen, Naproxen, Fenoprofen, Ketoprofen, Flurbiprofen, Oxaprozin, Indomethacin, Sulindac, Etodolac, Diclofenac (Safety alert by FDA), Piroxicam, Meloxicam, Tenoxicam, Droxicam, Lornoxicam, Isoxicam, Mefenamic acid, Meclofenamic acid, Flufenamic acid, Tolfenamic acid, Celecoxib (FDA alert), Rofecoxib (withdrawn from market), Valdecoxib (withdrawn from market), Parecoxib (FDA withdrawn), Lumiracoxib (TGA cancelled registration), Etoricoxib (FDA withdrawn)

How much is your pain worth? Decision Resources, a research and advisory firm for pharmaceutical and healthcare issues, says “Similar to the chronic pain market, opioid analgesics and NSAIDs continue to hold leading market status in the acute pain space. That market will increase to $17.4 billion in 2021 in the G7.

The fact that pain killers are a huge commodity means we will never be rid of these drugs. They will continue to be sold in mass quantities even if there are skull and crossbone warnings on them.

Of course, pain killers are necessary but not for long-term use. If you have long-term pain you have to look for the cause and use non lethal means of treatment.

What do I recommend? Completement Formulas, of course. Here are some testimonies:

“I had a severe hip, rotator, hamstring and quad breakdown. I was limping like a old man and in pain for 3 months. The chiropractor could almost do nothing for it; he left me in more pain. I have been taking all the Completement formulas including RnA Drops, ReAline, ReMag and ReMyte for several years so I just kept taking them. As of today my pain and has gone away almost completely and my mobility in stretching is almost normal more every day. I can walk better than I did 25 years ago. I can almost jog too now.”

“I started ReMag and I had a huge decrease in chronic pain and heart palpitations and felt more energy.”

“I bought ReMag for my daughter and within 1.5 weeks, her cramps were gone after having them for many years and with no help from doctors. An aunt in Honduras had terrible bone pain for 11 years. I sent her ReMag. One tsp twice a day took away 75% of her symptoms. After a massage using ReMag her pain went away in 5 minutes.”

“I recently ran out of my Completement Formulas and my sciatica came back after years of no pain, but it quickly disappeared once I began taking the ReMag again!”

“I just bought my bottles of ReMag and ReLyte. I started taking them on Saturday along with my salted water. I’m building up slowly but already, within 4 days my joint pain and inflammation in my shoulders are already feeling better.”

One 53-year old man, whose spine was painfully inflamed and rigid after 38 years of the painful arthritic condition, ankylosing spondylitis, within 3 months of taking RnA Drops, ReAline, ReMag and ReMyte got off all his meds and became so flexible he’s riding around on his bicycle. We have many cases of rheumatoid arthritis improving drastically using ReMag, RnA Drops, ReMyte and ReAline.

I could give you countless examples of how ReMag and the Completement Formulas act as superior anti-inflammatories but perhaps you have to try them to prove this miracle for yourself. They are available at RnA ReSet and you can download two free eBooks about ReMag and ReMyte under the INFO link and see how these minerals can help you in dozens of other ways. ReMag and ReMyte are liquid minerals but you can also put ReMag in a spray bottle and spray painful areas. Spray and let dry for a few minutes and spray and dry and do that 4-5 times and the pain will lessen.

Magnesium Prevents Cardiac Arrest

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, July 5, 2015
Apparently, in a move to shut several hundred thousand barn doors after over half-a-million horses have escaped, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) wants all of us to learn how to give CPR to someone experiencing cardiac arrest. Of course, I know that ReMag and my Completement Formulas have an excellent chance of preventing cardiac arrest and heart disease in the first place, so I find it very frustrating that most people aren’t informed about the alternatives.

Heart disease is a global problem. In 2014, the American Heart Association compiled data from more than 190 countries showing that heart disease remains the #1 global cause of death with 17.3 million deaths each year. They say that number is expected to rise to more than 23.6 million by 2030.

A July 1, 2015 Huffington Post article titled “Far Too Many People Die After Cardiac Arrest. Here’s What You Can Do To Help” spreads the word about CPR but not about magnesium. The IOM says 395,000 people in the US suffer cardiac arrest outside hospital and less than 6 percent survive. An additional 200,000 cardiac arrests occur in hospitals every year and 25% survive. That’s over half a million lives lost that could be saved.

You may think cardiac arrest is just another name for a heart attack, but it’s not – it’s worse. A heart attack may come on relatively slowly and occurs when blood flow to the heart is blocked. Sudden cardiac arrest occurs when the heart malfunctions and suddenly stops beating when its electrical activity is knocked out of rhythm. A heart attack is a “circulation” problem and sudden cardiac arrest is an “electrical” problem.

What do my faithful readers think about when they hear that cardiac arrest is an electrical problem? Magnesium, of course. I just wrote a 60+ page book on Atrial Fibrillation addressing how the electrical conductivity of the heart can be distorted to cause arrhythmia. The treatment begins with ReMag. The book, called Atrial Fibrillation: ReMineralize The Heart is currently being kindled and will be available within a few weeks in PDF and Kindle versions.

In cardiac arrest, CPR or cardioversion with a defibrillator can buy critical time if it’s started immediately, Each year, less than 3 percent of the U.S. population receives training in CPR or defibrillator use, while some European countries mandate training. I learned CPR in my medical training and I think it’s wise for everyone to learn it, given the high probability of someone dropping with a cardiac arrest in front of your.

The commitment of the medical establishment to try and keep people alive after cardiac arrest death, instead of preventing it from occurring, is seen in the enormous internet presence of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation. Their stated mission is to prevent death and disability from sudden cardiac arrest; to increase awareness about sudden cardiac arrest and influence attitudinal and behavioral changes that will reduce mortality and morbidity from SCA.

They want more people to survive cardiac arrest. I want more people to have a mineral-balanced heart so that its electrical conductivity never fails! I have had countless emails from people with heart disease who swear by the Completement Formula approach that I will continue to write and blog about it to try and reach as many people as possible.

Build Better Bones!

Berei and T Tapp 2015-5-27_62615

In early June, my friend Teresa Tapp, the creator of T-Tapp, the multi-tasking exercise program that I recommend, sent me an amazing testimonial of someone who I’ve met several times at Teresa’s T-Tapp Retreats.

Teresa’s dear friend, Berei, in her 88th year, has beaten all the odds and improved her bone density tests. She has been on a two-year program of T-Tapp, ReMag and ReMyte. It’s the perfect combination for bone regeneration with mineral building blocks and specific exercises to target osteoporotic areas.

Teresa says that the basic T-Tapp position of “tuck butt with knees out” targets Berei’s L1-4 and her posture is much improved. Teresa and Berei work out together at 6am three to four times a week using several programs Senior Fit and Brain Body Fitness Turn Back Time, which are available on DVD.

Teresa sent me Berei’s most recent Dexa Bone Scan that shows a remarkable 18.0% increase in bone density in L1-4 compared with a previous scan done two years prior. Femoral neck studies show a 4.5% and 2.5% increase. Medically, her condition has been upgraded to osteopenia from frank osteoporosis.

Because of the previous osteoporosis condition Berei was prescribed daily shots of an osteoporosis drug called Forteo. However when she took the shots for two years prior to ReMag and ReMyte, there was only a 2% increase in bone density and she was only doing T-Tapp sporadically. It was when she began doing T-Tapp exercises consistently and taking ReMag and ReMyte that the real miracle happened.

In spite of her amazing improvement, which Berei credits to T-Tapp, ReMag and ReMyte, her doctor doesn’t agree, and just wants to put her on a different osteoporosis drug, Prolia. Teresa and Berei were very confused and asked me why the doctor would suggest another drug when she is doing so well.

I researched Forteo and Prolia and found a recent report that suggests Forteo never really helped that much. People may gain some bone density but lose it if they don’t switch to another drug. With Berei’s 18% increase, that her doctor thinks is due to Forteo and not T-Tapp, ReMag and ReMyte, they want to hold onto that increase with Prolia.

I can’t tell Berei what to do but I said, personally, I would keep doing what works and try to avoid drugs with side effects. They may have statistics that say Prolia can improve bone density but at what cost – because they never mention the side effects.

Prolia is a drug that inhibits the maturation of osteoclasts – the cells that create the proper bone architecture and reabsorb old bone cells. Researchers think that stopping bone cells from being reabsorbed helps improve bone density but what it really does is create thicker and more brittle bones that shatter more easily. The side effects of Prolia can be horrific: joint and muscle pain in arms and legs; increased risk of infection; osteonecrosis of the jaw; hip fractures; eczema, skin infections requiring hospitalization; and disruption of the immune system because Prolia inhibits more than just osteoclasts.

I told Berei and Teresa it was time for Berei to add our ReAline to help detox the drug that she’s been on and our RnA Drops to help make perfect cells. They agreed!

Cholesterol Drugs Fight Back

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, June 12, 2015
In spite of the increasing awareness that cholesterol does not “cause” heart disease (it’s got more to do with inflammation, which is mostly due to magnesium deficiency!). In spite of 25 years of statin drugs not being able to “cure” heart disease (although cholesterol levels may drop, people don’t live longer on statins). In spite of statin-induced lower cholesterol levels causing erectile dysfunction (impotence) and neurologic dysfunction (dementia) and maybe because statins seem to be accumulating dangerous side effects, there is a new cholesterol drug on the block.

An injectable drug called evolocumab (Repatha) just received a 11-4 approval by an FDA advisory committee. A similar drug alirocumba (Praulent) was unanimously supported by all 15 members of the committee. They are so desperate for these drugs that the FDA isn’t even waiting for the outcome of clinical trials before approval.

The PCSK9 gene provides instructions for making a protein that helps regulate the amount of cholesterol in the bloodstream. These injectables inhibit the PCSK9 enzymes in the liver lowering the amount of low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol in the blood, potentially reducing the risk of clogged arteries and heart attacks. But again, cholesterol does not cause heart disease – inflammation does.

I haven’t yet found a reference that associates PCSK9 enzymes and magnesium, but I’m sure I will because magnesium is responsible for the proper functioning of 700-800 enzyme systems in the body. HMG-CoA reductase is another liver enzyme: it controls the rate of cholesterol production in the body but it needs magnesium in order to work. If there is too much cholesterol, HMG-CoA reductase reduces production. If magnesium is deficient, this activity is lost and cholesterol rises. Magnesium is therefore called a natural statin

What causes elevated cholesterol? Diet, stress, lack of magnesium in 80% of the population, taking medications – especially those with fluoride molecules that bind up magnesium. What do I recommend for high cholesterol?

Read Chapter 6 in The Magnesium Miracle about “Cholesterol and Hypertension.” These are two conditions that respond to magnesium therapy. And note my comments about 245-250 being the average normal cholesterol when I was in medical school. To get therapeutic amounts of magnesium into your cells you need ReMag. More and more customers are telling us that they have tried many forms of magnesium but when they switched to ReMag they immediately noticed the difference. Besides ReMag, I recommend the other Completement Formulas for treating cholesterol. ReMyte to support the thyroid and adrenals; ReAline for a safe and gentle detox and RnA Drops to help make perfect cells.

Here are a few short testimonials from Completement Formula users:

“I got my cholesterol lab results back… and the numbers were lower… YAY. The doctor said that I should just keep doing what I’ve been doing (NO LIPITOR) and check again in 6 months.”

“Magnesium helps me sleep, keeps my heart from racing and keeps cholesterol in check.”

“My doctor is impressed with my cholesterol results, then I fess up that I haven’t taken the cholesterol drug since the end of 2013, when I began ReMag.”

For more information, go to my radio show archive site Dr. Carolyn Dean Live, type cholesterol in the search field and find radio shows where I talk about cholesterol and what to do for it.
