Kidney Artery Calcification Causes Kidney Disease

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, August 19, 2016
If you don’t have enough magnesium in your body to help keep calcium dissolved, you can develop many symptoms, including muscle spasms, fibromyalgia, neuralgia, calcified arteries, dental cavities, and calcium deposits (including breast tissue calcification). Some researchers equate aging with calcification. A recent study found that elderly women who take calcium supplements and had a history of stroke or white matter lesions (WMLs) may face an increased risk for dementia. And remember, elderly means anyone over 65!

Another scenario plays out in the kidneys and bladder. If there is too much calcium in the kidneys and not enough magnesium to dissolve it, you can develop kidney stones. Calcium deposited throughout the bladder can make it rigid, lower its capacity, and lead to frequent urination and leaking. A 2015 study confirms magnesium’s role in dissolving calcium crystals in artery calcification. This study focused on aortic valve calcification at a time when there has been a huge increase in heart valve problems.

Kidney artery calcification is common in chronic kidney disease but it’s been neglected because it can’t be treated with stents or artery bypass as is done in coronary artery and carotid artery calcification. Drug therapy is all that’s left, but drugs are not used to treat kidney disease, drugs are given to prevent the diseases that are commonly associated with kidney disease: antihypertensives, blood thinners, and statins. Ignored is the fact that magnesium can dissolve calcification and potentially cure the problem, whereas statins and blood pressure drugs just make the calcification worse because they drain magnesium from the body.

To add insult to injury, anyone with any level of kidney disease is told to avoid magnesium! That’s because patients with NO kidney function, who are on dialysis, can build up high levels of magnesium if they are given IV magnesium. Those cases led to detrimental advice that you should avoid magnesium if you have ANY level of kidney disease.

A ReMag customer who is on home dialysis says that her magnesium level plummets after each and every dialysis treatment because the treatment drains magnesium. If she doesn’t take her ReMag she develops heart palpitations and leg cramps like most patients who are on dialysis. Yet, doctors don’t make the connection and just keep giving medications for what they say are complications of kidney disease. They are so convinced that kidney disease causes heart disease, they put patients on “preventive” heart meds and statin drugs when they should be giving magnesium!

Instead of expensive and disruptive IV chelation therapies, you can be in charge of dissolving your own calcification. A customer wrote the following, “My wife had open heart surgery 2½ years ago, due mostly to hypertension and obstruction of the coronary arteries. After being on ReMag and ReMyte for several months, her blood pressure dropped from 180/95 to 110/60. Also, her ejection fraction improved to 60%, and the last ultrasound of her carotid artery showed a 30% to 40% lessening of calcified occlusions.”

Elderly Hospital Patients Arrive Sick, Leave Disabled

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, August 12, 2016
You’ll be shocked to learn that most developed countries have accepted the chronological age of 65 years as a definition for the elderly! So, a recent article in Medscape about hospitals being dangerous for elderly patients hits too close to home for my readership.

In my world, age 60 is the new 40, so I don’t even acknowledge “old age”. That’s because I take my Completement Formulas, I don’t take drugs, I exercise every day, I eat well, and I love what I do. And I also have Bob and Maui!

A few weeks ago, an 82-year old Completement Formula customer in New York who had a serious dizzy spell after a particular grueling dental appointment. The doctors told her she had a mini stroke, yet none of her tests indicated a stroke or any health problems whatsoever, but they still wanted to put her on drugs anyway – because of her age! Her children wanted her in a senior’s home. And I wanted her to define the event as a reaction to having her teeth drilled for over an hour and not any impeding disease or condition!

Ageism is a medical bias, wherein, after the age of 65, you are continually told that it’s your age that’s the basis of all your problems. Nurses and doctors are shocked when you tell them you aren’t on any meds! It’s quite insane that taking drugs is the new norm.

Go to Medscape and look up this article (Elderly Hospital Patients Arrive Sick, Leave Disabled) and read it for yourself. You’ve all probably heard similar stories and there is likely no end in sight to this type of medical intervention. The writer paints a very scary picture. She quotes a geriatric physician and researcher at UCLA who says, “The older you are, the worse the hospital is for you. A lot of the stuff we do in medicine does more harm than good. And sometimes with the care of older people, less is more.”

The writer said, “Hospital staff often fail to feed older patients properly, get them out of bed enough or control their pain adequately. Providers frequently restrict their movements by tethering them to beds with oxygen tanks and IV poles. Doctors subject them to unnecessary procedures and prescribe redundant or potentially harmful medications. And caregivers deprive them of sleep by placing them in noisy wards or checking vital signs at all hours of the night. Interrupted sleep, unappetizing food and days in bed may be merely annoying for younger patients, but they can cause lasting damage to older ones.”

Here’s one story I just received from a customer about her 95-year old mother that has a happy ending. She was not hospitalized but would have been if her daughter had not intervened.

“My mom was having serious blood pressure issues back in Feb, 2016. She had been taking Diovan 320 and Bystolic 5mg for many years, but in Feb her blood pressure shot up, and so the Dr added another 5 mg Bystolic to take in the AM with her Diovan. That did not bring the blood pressure to a satisfactory level, so the Dr then added another 5 mg Bystolic to be taken in the PM to get a level of about 178/84, but it still would go up to 236/108 on many days. I read your book, and decided to get her on magnesium.”

Let me just interject here, that when drugs aren’t working, it amazes me that the doctor doesn’t question the fact that the drugs aren’t working but just adds more drugs!

Back to our 95-year old’s story, “In March we started on magnesium glycinate, (1 TBSP) per day, and after a while the blood pressure began to lower. In June, I started her slowly on ReMag until she built up to 1 tsp per day. Last week I took her for a RBC Mag blood test, and she was 4.5, so I can just imagine how low she was before the supplementation! I figure she needs even more magnesium so I have increased it to 1 1/4 tsp, and was intending to get her up to maybe 2 tsp and retest her.

What the ReMag has done for her blood pressure is a miracle. She has slowly gotten off ALL Bystolic, and is seeing her blood pressure around 130/74. I was actually hoping to get her off that awful Diovan gradually, so made a Dr. appointment (it won’t be until Aug 24th).”

I thought this testimonial was Awesome! I did say that I personally would be taking 2-3 tsp of ReMag along with ReMyte, ReAline and RnA Drops. The daughter, however, did have a concern about a kidney test (urinary albumin, creatinine ratio) that was abnormal and she worried about the myth that has spread far and wide that magnesium is unsafe in kidney disease!

Here is my answer, “The micro alb/creat ratio is likely due to KIDNEY ARTERY CALCIFICATION! So, she needs magnesium to dissolve calcium in her arteries.

There is coronary artery calcification leading to angina, heart attack and hypertension; carotid artery calcification causing stroke, then there is kidney artery calcification leading to “kidney disease,” which they diagnose by finding elevated creatinine levels and/or albumin in the urine.

Medicine says there is no treatment for kidney disease, except to give you heart meds and statins to prevent cardiovascular disease, which they say is inevitable with kidney disease. I think that’s because they tell you to NOT take magnesium, which is horrible advice!” Please read my blog Diabetes, Kidney Disease and Magnesium, which references two long articles about the absolute requirement of magnesium in kidney disease!

It remains that our only protection against misdiagnosis and mistreatment is to stay healthy, and keep out of hospitals, which is best accomplished by taking the Completement Formulas and asking questions either of Customer Service or on my radio show at Achieve Radio, every Monday at 4pm PST!

You Can’t Fix Stupid!

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Saturday, August 6, 2016
I received this blog title and the following article from a customer who is a practicing minister. You can direct any comments about politically incorrect language his way. I totally agree with his sentiments – sometimes you just have to tell it like it is. The title refers to an article about an All-Star pitcher in Major League Baseball who was prescribed potato chips for his arm cramps!

I kid you not, the latest nonsense from a team physician for the Chicago Cubs is to treat Jason Hammel’s arm cramps with a Potato Chip Diet. Why? Supposedly because they contain lots of potassium! Not only did the allopathetic doctor not factor in the high sodium content of potato chips, he neglected to acknowledge the role that magnesium deficiency plays in muscle cramps. Then there’s the 10 grams of fried fat in one ounce of chips! Wash them down with team-sponsored athletic electrolyte drinks containing 35 grams (9 tsp) of sugar per half liter – and you can develop diabetes!

In the next edition of The Magnesium Miracle I write, “Magnesium deficiency may also play a role in sudden cardiac death syndrome, which can affect athletes. In a study of young, healthy, well-conditioned men, strenuous exercise was reported to give rise to persistent magnesium deficiency and a related long-term increase in cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood sugar. This study postulates that the sudden death of athletes and other intensely training individuals during extreme exertion is triggered by the detrimental effects of persistent magnesium deficiency on the cardiovascular system.”

I have reached out occasionally to athletes to try and educate them about how much magnesium they are burning and their need for replacement. Based on their experience I also wrote, “What could be worse for a 6’, 300 pound college or pro football player than to suffer frightening atrial fibrillation and humiliating panic attacks and have to give up his 10 million dollar contract, when all he had to do was drink sea salted-water along with magnesium and multiple minerals?”

High school athletes are also victims of magnesium deficiency. Many of my clients and customers developed their symptoms in their teens and only recognized their magnesium deficiency decades later.

June 10, 2014, I wrote a very detailed article called “LeBron James Has Magnesium Deficiency” a few days after he was pulled from the 1st game of the NBA finals due to muscle cramps. I wrote about magnesium deficiency and heart disease in “Magnesium, Endurance, Athletes & Atrial Fibrillation”. I discuss athletics and magnesium in the following youtubes: Energy, Athlete Performance and Magnesium and Magnesium: Athlete Performance Enhancer.

Recently an NFL football player approached me about magnesium for his heart palpitations and anxiety. He was very excited after our conversation but then he never followed up, likely because his doctors would demand that he take drugs and not listen to a quack like Dr. Dean.

It’s very sad that so few people learn about magnesium and even fewer find out about the miraculous benefits of ReMag – the most concentrated and therapeutic magnesium available.

Could Ablation for AFib Be an Elaborate Placebo?

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Monday, August 1, 2016
Dr. John Mandrola, a cardiac electrophysiologist, practicing in Louisville KY, has been doing AFib cardiac ablations for 12 years. Back in 2012, he’s all gung ho, writing in his blog about how much easier ablations have gotten with new technologies, and he’s doing more procedures than ever.

Then in 2015 he writes a blog called “A Cautionary Note On AF Ablation”. He’s doing fewer ablations because he says the drugs and/or the ablation fix aren’t working on everyone. He talks about a new way of thinking about AFib, where cardiologists say that it seems to occur as a sign or symptom of something else. He’s surprised that he and his colleagues took so long to figure this out. The factors he lists include obesity, sleep apnea, alcohol, high blood pressure, inflammatory conditions (infections, trauma), excess exercise and stress. He says that, “most experts now agree that each of these conditions, either alone or together, create the milieu in which AF starts and perpetuates.”

Unfortunately, he gives no thought to the fact that, since AFib is an electrical condition, why not look at the electrolytes – especially magnesium? Instead he just says that “The above conditions (with inflammation and excess being the common thread) cause atrial chamber dilation, enlargement of individual atrial cells, loss of atria skeleton, change in cell membrane connections and deposition of scar. In total, we call these effects remodeling, and remodeling favors the development and persistence of AF.” He admits that, “Since embracing this holistic approach to people with AF, I’ve done far fewer ablations and redo ablations.” He concludes, “The take-home message for patients and doctors alike is that AF ablation remains a reasonable option for carefully selected patients. But we should no longer rush to treat a condition caused by scar by creating more scar.”

Then in June 2016, Mandrola gives it all up and posts on Medscape for all to read, “Could Ablation for AFib Be an Elaborate Placebo?” He says that AFib ablation has never been properly tested against placebo and cardiologists are beginning to question the procedure. His concerns seem to have been triggered by a trial of a more invasive ablation procedure to prevent recurrence of AFib. He said that “German authors called the 2-year results after cryoballoon ablation in patients with persistent AF ‘promising.’ How promising? The procedure failed in 22 of the 50 patients (44%). Not only are the results poor, but the procedure is big—ablation lesions in the left atrium, often millimeters away from the esophagus or phrenic nerve, general anesthesia, transseptal puncture, multiple vascular entries, and hours of bed rest put patients at significant risk. Creating scar to treat a disease that is often caused by scar hardly seems elegant.”

Please go to Medscape, become a free member, and read Mandrola’s 1,500 word paper “Could Ablation for AFib Be an Elaborate Placebo?” AFib ablation has only been around for 20 years. Perhaps it’s like many other therapies that have great success in the beginning because of a huge placebo effect and then that effect levels off. Mandrola even says that because AFib drugs have so many side effects “…in a comparison of ablation vs drugs, the ablation procedure could be neutral but look positive relative to drugs.” He asks a tough question, “Is it a stretch to posit that an…antiarrhythmic drug worsens symptoms when it converts intermittent AF to sustained flutter?”

Mandrola ends by saying, “I’ve ablated AF many hundreds of times over the past 12 years. I do fewer AF ablations now. I go slower. Patients and I have long chats about AF; we discuss their symptoms, the reasons for these symptoms, the vast uncertainty of AF and its treatment, and, mostly, the expectations of ablation or no ablation. Could a nurturing, respectful, and optimistic doctor-patient interaction deliver antiarrhythmic effects?”

Dr. Mandrola sounds like he’s ready to hear about ReMag for AFib, but I’m not going to tell him. Back in the early 1990’s, my licensing body came after me because I said bad things about sugar, so I’m sure they would send out a firing squad if I tried to tell doctors that magnesium can help treat AFib. No, I’ll just keep helping those people who do their research and homework and find me and my work.

In my AFib book, Atrial Fibrillation: ReMineralize Your Heart, I outline the 33 triggers for AFib (which are all caused by magnesium deficiency), and offer my treatment recommendations. The book is available Amazon Kindle for $0.99, or you can email Customer Service through our website and ask for a free PDF copy.

Dr. Mercola Appreciation Week!

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, July 31, 2016
This week, Dr. Joseph Mercola begins his Twentieth Year of providing vital, online health content with his award-winning Mercola.com website. During this anniversary week, you will receive new and exciting information each day by joining his newsletter. Kicking off the week is an article and video on A Typical Day In The Life of Dr. Mercola, which will be of interest to many people.

I remember when Dr. Mercola first went online with an educational website. It wasn’t long before he had millions of followers. A statistics website says Mercola.com is the number one Health-Alternative/Natural Medicine site and visits to the site are around 20 million per month. For two decades, Dr. Mercola has generously provided alternative health information that has benefited millions of readers.

We have no way of knowing the extent of the effect that Dr. Mercola has had on the world but I know it’s tremendous because I know how much he has done for one person – me. Over the years Dr. Mercola has been incredibly supportive of my work. When I was more active as medical director of YeastConnection.com, I regularly wrote articles about yeast overgrowth for Mercola.com. This was at a time when most doctors ignored yeast.

On Aug. 7, 2004, Dr. Mercola published an in depth article about my book, The Miracle of Magnesium. It’s had 187,531 views. In 2005, he wrote a foreword to my book, Death by Modern Medicine along with Abram Hoffer and Julian Whittiker. More recently, on Dec. 8, 2013, he released an article and a video “Magnesium – The Missing Link to Better Health”, which has garnered over 1 million views. Jan 19, 2015. “Magnesium: An Invisible Deficiency That Could Be Harming Your Health” has netted a total of 2.2 million views. Dec 28, 2015, “Magnesium – A Key Nutrient for Health and Disease Prevention” has had 314,000 views. The latest article, July 25, 2016, “Magnesium – An Essential Mineral for Heart Health” totaled 232,263 views in 5 short days.

My blog and Facebook pages only total about 50,000 followers, so I am deeply indebted to Dr. Mercola for allowing me to reach millions of viewers.

Thank you Joe, I wish you much bliss and comfort in knowing that you continue to positively affect countless millions with your health message.

My Manifesto – Carolyn F. A. Dean MD ND

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Saturday, July 23, 2016
My personal lifelong commitment is to research commonsense, practical, efficient, affordable ways of staying well and make these tools available so you can take charge of your own body and your own health.

I try to convey this message on my radio show and in my writings and through our Customer Service at RnA ReSet. You do need reliable health information, you do need reliable tools and I encourage you to take that information and those tools and make them your own.

Gone are the days when doctors and drug companies put medicine in an ivory tower and presume they know more about your body than you do. The people that read my blogs know that medicine, and even alternative medicine, has become so specialized that they don’t see the whole picture – they just see specialized parts. I spoke about this recently in my blog Total Body Meltdown.

Because doctors don’t see the whole body, they don’t see that basic remineralization and gentle detox are the solutions – they think it’s to simplistic. So they complexify illness and keep searching deeper and deeper. They look at genetics, amino acids, neurotransmitters, hormones, intestinal flora – all individually and come up with lots of data that they then try to manipulate with ineffective solutions – mostly too many drugs or too many supplements.

I’m convinced that our bodies are brilliant and know what to do with their genes, amino acids, neurotransmitters, hormones and intestinal flora if they have access to well absorbed minerals (sea salted water, ReMag, ReMyte) and gentle detox (ReAline, RnA Drops, and a yeast-free diet).

So, my advice is to study my information and make your own decision whether to take my Completement Formulas and get in touch with questions only if you need to fine-tune your protocol. This approach puts you in charge of your own body and me as your helper – not the other way around.

Medications ARE The New Parents

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, July 22, 2016

It’s common knowledge that kids are overmedicated but I’m concerned that medications are taking the place of parents to keep kids under control and in a weird way, to show that they care!

Young people today are on their own and faced with a multitude of problems: parents don’t have time for their children, they are both working and are likely divorced and often there’s a new step-mother or step-father to contend with; raging hormones; peer pressure at school to smoke or do drugs; a junk food diet because nobody has time to cook; growing up on vaccines and antibiotics; and keeping up with social media. With all this pressure, kids may “act out” in school and they are often put on medication to make the teacher’s job easier as it dulls their reaction to the chaos and to their true feelings.

Pivotal trigger events can happen in a child’s life that overwhelming and set the stage for ongoing fear and anxiety. Parents divorcing, a parent or grandparent dying, a family pet being struck by a car, a fire or a flood can all make a child feel unprotected, abandoned and fearful. When a parent’s “protection” is lost, a child often blames him/herself and “bargains” to reverse the situation. The bargaining often takes the form of OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) behavior. Fear that the traumatic event is going to repeat itself leads to anxiety and panic attacks or the child shuts down and becomes depressed. Parents often misinterpret emotional reactions to teenage angst and ignore the kid shut up in their room listening to loud music. Girls, more often, will develop physical symptoms in an attempt to get attention and comfort.

The adult that kids are exposed to most is their teacher, who is often the one to tell the parent that their child needs to be medicated! A supportive school counselor may be helpful at this stage but they are few and far between. Now your child is on meds and the only job of the parent is to make sure the meds are taken – which becomes the way they show that they care! And they don’t have to take time out of their own Total Body Meltdown and Medicated life!

I’m even amazed at the negative picture I’ve just painted as I add up the case histories that I’ve heard over the years. On a mental health watchdog website you can read the statistical breakdown for yourself in the report: Number of Children & Adolescents Taking Psychiatric Drugs in the U.S. For children aged 0-17, 8,389,034 are on psychiatric drugs, which is over 10% of that population.

I’m also amazed that a good diet along with minerals can quickly turn this picture around and result in a positive outcome. No, it won’t change the stresses but it will change the ability of a child to cope with stress. Children on ReMag and ReMyte and a good diet don’t get sick, they don’t get irritable, they sleep well, they don’t get constipated, they can focus and concentrate and lead happy lives.

A good diet is often the hardest part to attain but it is the most important. To prove how important it is, run The Experiment on your kids or grandkids. Tell your kids that if they avoid all sugar and junk food for a week, then at the end of the week, on Saturday, they can eat as much sugar and junk food as they can swallow. You have to do it on Saturday so they have Sunday to recover. This experiment will prove to them how yucky their body feels on a bad diet and will make your job easier of keeping them healthy much easier.

The Unlucky Years

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, July 10, 2016
The Lucky Years: How to Thrive in the Brave New World of Health is a book that presents a Utopian view of health data mining that will be used by allopathic medicine to promote more drugs and medical procedures. As the author states,   “…data is becoming one of the most powerful health care tools around—helping to generate a staggering volume of new knowledge and technologies in medicine. Scientists are developing drugs to reverse once-fatal ailments such as heart disease and figuring out how to harness a person’s immune system to melt away cancer.”

Is this writer living in some alternate universe where he actually believes that “Scientists are developing drugs to reverse once-fatal ailments such as heart disease and figuring out how to harness a person’s immune system to melt away cancer?” Or am I totally missing the boat and there is a realm in which people happily take their 6-10 drugs a day and ‘dance like a kid again’? I don’t think so!

Every day I hear from those Unlucky patients who have been on their 6-10 drugs and desperately want to get off them because of the mounting side effects. And the news reports about drug side effects are becoming more commonplace. You can read about “The 50 Most Dangerous Drugs on the Market” posted on the MSN Network. Using FDA data for the years 2004-2015 a research company called HealthGrove identified the 150 drugs with the highest number of adverse reactions and published the first 50. The number of reported side effects for the first 15 drugs was 1.24 million and the percentage of serious side effects was around 75%. And that’s only 10% of the total. How in the name of sanity have we managed to accept drugs that carry so many side effects and not even blink and not even imagine there are alternatives? That’s not even the worst of it. Only about 4% of drug side effects are acknowledged by doctors and even less are reported. So, the true numbers are swept under the rug.

In The Lucky Years, the author enthused about a new high-tech test called VirScan, which can identify more than a thousand strains of viruses from 206 species, reflecting the entire human “virome” from one drop of blood. He says “The application of this type of test will be astounding. We’ve long suspected that viruses may contribute to chronic ailments such as heart disease, asthma, and autoimmune diseases.” Don’t be surprised when VirScan is used to promote hundreds of vaccines to “prevent” chronic ailments while exposing people to mercury, aluminum and RNA fragments from viral particles. I’m afraid the love affair of allopathetic medicine with drugs is never going to end – a certain segment of the population will keep the myth alive that drugs are the “cure” they are looking for.

Fortunately there is the 1% of the population that is turning to natural medicine solutions and some of them are reading my blogs. Yes, I’m sure it’s only a handful of people who are getting the message and the only way that will change is if you spread the message. It may sound like a fear-based message – that drugs have tremendous side effects – but it’s not, it’s a reality and the other reality is that there are solutions. You can read the information that I’ve gathered over the past 40 years on my websites (Dr. Carolyn Dean, RnA ReSet) to understand how to support your body with the right building blocks to overcome most chronic diseases. Only you can take that first step to a healthy future!

Total Body Meltdown

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, July 8, 2016
Total Body Meltdown: Where Nothing Works and Everything Hurts is the title of a new book I’m writing. It describes the current state of health of many of my customers in a health care system that is more about the system than about the care. The system that you are shunted into when you are suffering Total Body Meltdown separates you into your body parts treating each part individually with the “appropriate” drug or surgery.

It’s no wonder you are turning to self-help books, Internet health information and online doctors but you usually find the same specialist approach. A book agent I interviewed in New York in the mid 1990’s told me I had to become a specialist in one health topic to attract an audience. That’s the way the publishing industry still works but that’s not the way the body works.

In 1988, in a paper about yeast overgrowth, I wrote about the downward spiral of health. Childhood vaccinations and antibiotics lead to allergies and yeast overgrowth; the BCP causes more yeast overgrowth; the immune system weakens allowing more infections and more drugs are prescribed. I actually witnessed the development of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and see it as part of yeast overgrowth and magnesium deficiency. Along with CFS came adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism. Each condition and symptom added onto the next. And no one grasps the larger picture. In Total Body Meltdown I list the common symptoms of a dozen different health conditions, which confirms to me they have similar origins. They include: hypoglycemia, allergies, CFS, fibromyalgia, hypothyroid, adrenal fatigue, early menopause, Candida, leaky gut, IBS, estrogen dominance, ADHD.

I’m convinced the similar origins of these, and many more conditions, are mineral deficiencies and yeast overgrowth. Instead of a cupboard full of drugs or supplements, my Total Body Approach to Total Body Meltdown focuses on the 4 Completement Formulas designed to both heal and prevent health problems by 1. Supplying minerals that work, 2. Gently detoxing the body, and 3. Making perfect cells.

ReMag is a unique 60,000ppm concentrate of stabilized magnesium ions where 1 tsp equals 300mg. It works synergistically with ReMyte. Instead of purchasing a dozen different bottles of minerals, ReMyte is a multiple mineral where 9 of the 12 ingredients help heal the thyroid and the adrenals – and dozens of other body systems. ReAline is an important precursor to glutathione and has methylated B’s including B12 to support the nervous system and liver detoxification. RnA Drops are the catalyst for the Completement Formulas providing the impetus for RNA to make perfect copies of DNA for new cell development using the ionized minerals in ReMag and ReMyte.

We are adding a Meal Replacement formula called ReStructure to our Completement Formulas in a few weeks. It will be the perfect addition to your yeast-free diet, which is the next step in a Total Body Approach to Meltdown. You can find the yeast detox program on my radio show archive. It begins with diet; the probiotic Prescript Assist and antifungal foods like garlic.

As you are beginning to see, we put the care back in Health Care. My Total Body Approach to Meltdown is meant to relieve you of the stress of believing you have a dozen different health conditions, or that your genes are malfunctioning, or that you need dozens of drugs and supplements. We offer you a simple, workable treatment protocol that has been successful in thousands of patients and customers. As we say on the Dr. Dean Live Radio Show – The Worst if Over! We also say to “Partner up and do your own research” and we provide you with all the research material you will ever need! You can download two free eBooks on ReMag and ReMyte at RnAReSet and be sure to listen to my radio show every Monday at 4pm PST on Achieve Radio.

Desalinated Water Without Magnesium Is Dangerous!

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Thursday, July 7, 2016
That desalinated water without added magnesium is dangerous is set to shock water-safety experts world wide. I’ve met Dr. Michael Shechter several times in the world of magnesium research. I’ve mentioned him in my Magnesium Miracle book – especially citing his studies proving that magnesium deficiency causes heart disease and magnesium supplementation treats it.

Today (July 6, 2016), Michael emailed a magnesium experts’ list of 12 people with a stunning announcement about his most recent scientific paper. He said that his “provocative manuscript” “Desalinated seawater supply and all-cause mortality in hospitalized acute myocardial infarction patients from the Acute Coronary Syndrome Israeli Survey 2002–2013” was published online today having been submitted only 2 weeks before. Michael said he had never seen such a quick publication. And that’s because it contains life-threatening and live-saving findings.

He described that in this study “…we investigated patients with acute myocardial infarction in Israel…dividing the patients into 2 areas: those who live in areas with desalinated seawater (almost no magnesium) and those who live in areas with regular tap water (normal magnesium levels).”

The results were shocking. “We found an amazing increased 1-year mortality rate in patients who live in desalinated water area compared to normal water, which was also reflected in their serum magnesium levels.”

I think the results have terrified the public enough that there is a media frenzy happening in Israel. Michael said that “Following our preliminary announcement all media in Israel was very busy reporting the results in on-air discussions and for 2 consecutive days I’ve been interviewed on prime time news in the Israel national TV. The result is that our Prime Minister Mr. Netanyahu decided to add magnesium to the desalinated water!!!”

I heartily congratulated Dr. Shechter and told him “I know you put your heart into this study because the government wouldn’t accept your request to put magnesium in the DSW a few years ago. Now you have thoroughly proven them wrong! And already they have changed their minds and are adding magnesium to the DSW! I will blog about what you have proven here and it can extend to the dangers of all low magnesium water, which Paul Mason at Mg Water has been trying to educate people about for decades. Bravo!

Hopefully the rest of the world will look at this study, which you can read online, and identify the contributing factor of low levels of magnesium in our food and water to our overwhelming epidemic of heart disease. Think of the water you are now drinking – is it filtered extensively, or distilled or subjected to reverse osmosis, which remove the good minerals along with the bad? It’s through our water that we are supposed to receive magnesium and all our minerals but we no longer have this luxury. This study by Dr. Shechter proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that drinking water without magnesium causes heart attacks!

And, since you aren’t going to find much magnesium in your food or water, please take therapeutic magnesium in the form of ReMag to build up your stores. Of course, it’s not just about magnesium – as I’ve learned over the past several decades we also need good multiple minerals, such as ReMyte, a daily gentle detox – ReAline and the enigmatic RnA Drops. This synergistic combination of quality products covers most of what you require to stay healthy and happy.
