The Age Busters Power Summit for Men

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Tuesday, October 14, 2014

I suspect my readership is mostly women but I’d like to change that statistic. To that end I participated in the Age Busters Power Summit for Men with host Jonny Friedman.

No one prepares us for life in what Jonny calls “the Retirement Zone”. People just say, “I can’t wait until I’ve retired” as if that’s the ultimate goal. We’ve developed life skills to deal with the first parts of our lives, but what about the next?

Jonny, like many men, was looking for answers. And he found more than just answers – he found a whole new way of looking at life. With tremendous enthusiasm, he’s assembled an all-star panel of experts in a broad variety of fields who will give you an appreciation for what is possible for you in the future, as well as covering the sometimes daunting task of making changes in your life – Social Security, Medicare, Retirement, Relationships, Health issues, New Careers, New Income Sources and More.

I know most of my readers know about mineral supplementation but some of the concepts may seem alien to you – things like, EFT tapping, dream work, new careers, wellness, dating, sex after 60, and others. But I can tell you that you will gain something from listening to every interview. And you’ll likely find information and knowledge that will change your life forever. I know that during our interview, Jonny was amazed that he had all the signs of magnesium deficiency and didn’t even know it.

I’ll be joined by some of my friends and others whom I know you’ll find fascinating. The roster includes Marc Miller, Robert Silverstone, Andy Landis, Charlie Poznek, David James, April Braswell, Michael Fowler, Rick Miners, Thembi Buthelezi, Kelley Sullivan Walden, and Brad Yates.

And the best part – there is no charge whatsoever for this summit!
I’ve participated in about a dozen summits and this is a first-of-its-kind event. There will be two experts each day for 2 weeks and they are sharing their best, high-level content with you.

This telesummit and gifts that I and the other experts are giving YOU are easily valued at over $25,000 – and there is no cost. I’m proud to be joined by the best of the best and can’t wait to share this journey with you!
I look forward to having you join this exciting event.

Remember — you will always have 48 hours to access the free recordings so you won’t miss a nugget.

Looking forward to seeing you at the Summit!

Register NOW and get a jump-start on recapturing your power to create the time of your life!

P.S. Share the gift of The Age Busters Power Summit and forward this email to your friends, colleagues and family members – anyone who wants to create the life they want. They’re sure to appreciate the invitation. Women are welcome too!

Screening for Glucose

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, October 12, 2014

In an attempt to stem the tide of epidemic levels of diabetes in the American population, the US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) wants to screen adults aged 45 and older for abnormal blood glucose and type 2 diabetes.

The screening will first target those individuals with high blood pressure. And I can assure you they are going to find what they are looking for. Why is that? Because people with high BP are going to be on medication, which lowers magnesium levels. A sign of diabetes is low magnesium levels in the blood. Ergo, the very meds these patients are taking is creating diabetes yet doctors don’t have a clue they are the cause.

On the surface these guidelines do not appear to be offering medication to treat the DM but they suggest intensive lifestyle intervention! Another case of closing the barn door after all the animals – including the rats – have escaped. Why not promote intensive lifestyle intervention BEFORE the high blood pressure? Unfortunately lifestyle intervention is not going to bring you out of magnesium deficient conditions like high BP and elevated glucose. Guess what will do that? MAGNESIUM. Especially my ReMag!

Data from 2012 found that about 86 million Americans have impaired glucose tolerance or impaired fasting glucose; 8 million have undiagnosed diabetes; and about 9% of the US population had diabetes, up from 5% in 1995.

The Task Force that came up with the recommendations admitted that implementing lifestyle intervention and doing follow up would be a daunting task. But they are inviting comments until Nov 3, 2014. They say “We look forward to hearing from people because this is an important issue. We’ll take their comments into strong consideration.”

I went to the Draft Recommendation Statement and saw a document that resembled my mortgage agreement in length and complexity. But you are welcome to go to the Statement and leave your comments. I’m going to put TAKE MAGNESIUM in each of their answer boxes. Maybe if enough of us do that they might ask – Why?

Fructose Increases Kidney Calcification

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Saturday, October 11, 2014

In my 2014 edition of Magnesium Miracle, I mention that 1 molecule of table sugar (sucrose) requires 28 molecules of magnesium in order to metabolize it. However, fructose (fruit sugar) strips the body of 56 molecules of magnesium. Well, the validation of that statement is in the following study: “The Interaction Between Dietary Fructose and Magnesium Adversely Affects Macromineral Homeostasis in Men.”

Very simply, this study found that high dietary fructose significantly increases kidney calcification in both male and female rats, which was even worse when dietary magnesium was low. The researchers said that in future studies they will assess whether a high fructose diet along with low dietary magnesium and marginal calcium leads to bone loss.

But they don’t realize that fructose causes magnesium deficiency and that’s what causes the calcification because there isn’t enough magnesium to dissolve.

My blog Death by Sugar references the work of Dr. Robert Lustig and his video showing the dangers of high fructose corn syrup sweeteners. Lustig blames HFCS for the surge in obesity, diabetes and heart disease. He doesn’t mention magnesium deficiency as a factor.

You might think that I’m saying it’s all about magnesium – and Lustig is trying to say it’s all about HFCS. However, my case relies on the fact that magnesium is responsible for the function of 700-800 enzyme systems in the body and when it is deficient, the body suffers on many levels.

Every study I read about magnesium reinforces its importance, which the scientists themselves don’t even seem to realize. That’s why I keep reporting on these scientific studies and drawing broader conclusions that hopefully help you to see the necessity of continuing to take your magnesium and of recommending it to everyone you know!

To learn why more about why the kidneys require magnesium read: Kidney Disease Requires Magnesium and use ReMag for the best form to treat kidney disease.

You can send people to my ReMag book, which is free under the FAQ link on RnA ReSet. You can give them a copy of The Magnesium Miracle or send them to the link through my website to get it.

Minerals for Post Surgical Hypertension

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, October 5, 2014

A 19-year old client has been taking ReMag, ReLyte and sea salt for years to prevent severe leg cramps that used to occur due to her heavy athletic schedule. However, immediately after knee ligament surgery her BP was elevated (150/106) and the doctors were trying to force her to take drugs. She had never had high BP and her mother refused medication and emailed me from the hospital for my input.

I am aware of the inappropriate use of sugar water in IV’s instead of salt solution, in children and teens, so I said that she was probably dehydrated and lacking the sea salt, magnesium and minerals that her body depends on – especially in times of stress – i.e., sports and surgery! (Reference: Risk Of Acute Hyponatremia In Hospitalized Children And Youth Receiving Maintenance Intravenous Fluids)

The next day her mother reported that (fortunately) she had a tiny bottle of magnesium oil in her purse. She sprayed her daughter’s non-surgical leg and the bottom of both feet. Her BP went from 150/106 to 147/100 after 20 minutes. It was not a huge decrease, but seeing that her BP was going down the doctors finally agreed to her parents’ demands that they discharge her. An hour later, on the car ride home, her BP was 130/83. When they got home she started drinking the ReMag, ReLyte and sea salt mixture. That evening her BP was 122/76 and the next morning it was 120/71.

Her mother said that the worst part was how the anesthesiologist was trying to frighten them into taking the BP meds. She describes in great detail what could be causing the high BP – from a narrowed renal artery to “just having high blood pressure.” At one point, the doctor did say that her magnesium level could be low, but that any magnesium supplement would just cause diarrhea!

It turns out that our young athlete didn’t drink her sea salt water or take her minerals the day before her surgery because she was so busy, but her mother said “It is a lesson learned!” Her mother also said she was doing well in her first college sports season with no muscle cramping on her ReMag, ReLyte and sea salt water before she got injured.

My favorite line in this case is the anesthesiologist saying “any magnesium supplement would just cause diarrhea” so why bother.

I’m sure high blood pressure after surgery is quite common and probably treated with medication. Since the hospital staff won’t let you take supplements if you are a patient, I personally would add ReMag to a hand cream and put on my skin to help replace magnesium. I wrote about this in an article on Natural News “Helping Someone in the Hospital” where I gave several simple remedies for hospital patients. I now recommend ReMag as the mineral of choice.

ReWire Your Brain with Minerals – ReMag and ReLyte

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Tuesday, September 30, 2014

Rewire Your Brain to Think Thin is a Summit that goes far beyond dieting. It features many wonderful health experts including my dear friend Teresa Tapp. The Summit began yesterday, September 29, 2014; my talk is on October 1st. Register now so you don’t miss any more lectures!

In my Blog of September 18, 2014 I spoke at length about my participation in the Summit and if you haven’t already read the blog or signed up, now is the time.

In a previous blog about weight loss I reported the following distressing facts about obesity: “An article on Medscape titled Hope on Horizon for Newer Obesity Drugs in Europe caught my eye. Apparently, the European Association for the Study of Obesity (EASO) thinks there is a dire lack of obesity drugs in the European Union. Here’s how they express their dilemma ‘We cannot solve the obesity problem by surgery, and we know the clinical reality is that lifestyle therapy is failing in 80% to 90% of our patients. We are living in a very difficult environment, so we need drugs.’ Medicine has always ignored lifestyle and depends on drugs and surgery. And, obesity surgery is a bust as well. But, like my friend, Dr. Roby Mitchell says ‘You’ll never medicate your way out of diseases you behave yourself into.’

To add my two cents worth to the weight loss debate, I wrote an article for Natural News with the tongue-in-cheek title “Magnesium the Weight Loss Cure.” But the more research I did for the article the more I realized my statement is true. So the title of my presentation in the Summit is ReWire Your Brain with Minerals. I talk about ReMag, which provides the most effective and therapeutic magnesium and ReLyte, the multimineral that supports the thyroid, adrenals, pancreas and all the organs and tissues of the body. When you give it the correct structure- and function-minerals, the body will take care of itself.

I forget whether I had a chance to speak about ReAline and RnA Drops in the Summit. ReAline has the ability to detoxify heavy metals and chemical because it has precursors to glutathione as well as methyl groups and sulfur for the liver’s methylation and sulfation detoxification pathways. When you lose weight, the break down of fat cells releases stores toxins. Actually, fat cells can protect you by storing toxins and can be one of the reasons for weight gain. It can also explain why you can feel horrible when you diet because of the toxins being released. Taking ReAline will help mop up those toxins.

Print Your Own Death by Modern Medicine Book

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, September 28, 2014

After my announcement that my Death by Modern Medicine – 3rd Edition is out in eBook (PDF) and Kindle format I received the following comment:

“I was interested to read about this book, but I was very disappointed to learn it is only an e-book or a Kindle book. I refuse to buy e-books. I want something in my hand that I can pick up any old time without having to go out to my office, turn on my computer, and sit in front of a screen. I know these e-books save time and money — and are also often badly edited — and that many people love Kindle. I, however, hate all these electronic gadgets and won’t have them. Give me a print book any day, even if it costs more. So if you decide to go to a print book, I’ll consider making the investment.

I wrote back. “I’m sorry but I just as adamantly refuse to kill so many trees to print paper books. Also, Death by Modern Medicine is such a huge book that to print it would more than quadruple the cost. However here is what one inventive person does who has your same issues.”

She wrote: “I’ve been thinking about buying your book for a few years, and was ‘hung up’ over the lack of printed book format. However recently, with the proliferation of PDF docs, I’ve been taking PDFs to Office Depot and getting them printed double-sided B&W on laser paper with clear plastic cover, glossy book cover (in color) page on heavier stock, and a colored vinyl back cover material.
It’s then spiral bound which is GOOD because the doc can be opened up to any page and laid flat, folded back on itself, and stored in a file cabinet. Also easy to mark-up (notate), highlight and underline.”

Restless Legs No More

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Saturday, September 27, 2014

Here is what a friend wrote about her experience with ReMag and Restless Legs.

“Our RnA Drops and ReMag arrived. I am astounded because after taking ½ tsp of ReMag my RLS was much, much better last night.” She wrote back the next day. “I’m very amazed, again last night I had almost no RLS symptoms. I usually have RLS all night long, every night, and even at 5am when I awaken and sometimes during the day when I am relaxing. In order to get to sleep I take several natural sleep aids but almost never sleep for more than two hours at a time. Apparently I even move my legs and kick in my sleep. When I wake up I have to walk around and do things to distract myself, if I sit down the RLS starts up again. All the doctors say there is no cure and you must take strong drugs (ones that affect your dopamine). I have tried many things, and nothing has really worked at all, not even Life Extension magnesium.” So this is very surprising, to have two nights with almost no symptoms.”

I looked up the long list of drugs being used for RLS. I don’t usually like to beat a dead horse about drug side effects but for a condition that may be due to magnesium and mineral deficiency It’s sad to see drugs with dozens of potential side effects approved for RLS. Even more ironic is that many of the side effects are magnesium deficiency symptoms themselves.

Dopamine agonists: Mirapex, Neupro and Requip act like the neurotransmitter dopamine in the brain. Side effects include euphoria, pericardial effusion, fibrous thickening of heart and lungs, hallucinations, psychosis, weight loss, anorexia, nausea, vomiting, insomnia, fatigue, dizziness, drowsiness, narcolepsy, lightheadedness, Raynaud’s, fainting, twitching, twisting, unusual body movements, pathological addiction.

Dopaminergic agents: Sinemet used for Parkinsons may increase the level of dopamine in the brain and may improve leg sensations in RLS. However, they may cause a worsening of symptoms for some people after daily use. Side effects include nausea, vomiting, hallucinations, and involuntary movements (dyskinesias).

Benzodiazepines: Restoril, Xanax, Klonopin are sedatives. They don’t relieve symptoms but just help you sleep through the symptoms. These drugs are addictive and very difficult to quit. Side effects include sedation, dizziness, weakness, unsteadiness, depression, loss of orientation, headache, sleep disturbance.

Opiates: One example is Vicodin. Opiates are very addictive and as your body gets used to them you need more and more to give you any relief. Side effects include shallow breathing, light headedness, fainting, confusion, fear, unusual thoughts for behavior, seizures, difficulty urinating, anorexia, nausea, vomiting, drowsiness, itching, dry mouth, dizziness and constipation.

Anticonvulsants: Neurontin and Horizant may help relieve the symptoms of RLS as well as chronic pain or nerve pain. Side effects include dizziness, drowsiness, blurred vision, anxiety, depression, agitation, hostility, restlessness, hyperactivity (mentally or physically), suicidal thoughts.

Alpha2 agonists: Catapres is an example. Such drugs stimulate alpha2 receptors in the brain stem. This activates nerve cells (neurons) that “dials down” the part of the nervous system that controls muscle involuntary movements and sensations. Side effects include fast or pounding heartbeats, tremors, shortness of breath, rapid weight gain, confusion, hallucinations, flu symptoms, problems urinating, drowsiness dizziness, fatigue, irritability, cold symptoms, mood changes, insomnia, nightmares, headache, fever, constipation, diarrhea, stomach pain, dry mouth, impotence.

People are amazed when a chronic and difficult-to-treat conditions respond to ReMag. Especially when they have tried other forms of magnesium. With each new testimonial it’s obvious that many magnesium products are not well enough absorbed to give the therapeutic levels offered by ReMag.

Another interesting fact is that about 5% of the people who take ReMag get an aggravation of their symptoms when first beginning ReMag. It seems that the more toxic you are, the more drugs you take, and the longer you have been magnesium-deficient the more slowly you should introduce ReMag. When the magnesium in ReMag and the picometer minerals in ReLyte are absorbed directly into cells they exert a detox effect on the cells that clears out heavy metals and chemicals. This detox can feel like your symptoms are getting a bit worse or you may feel tired and sluggish. The symptoms are not serious but if you are expecting to feel better and you don’t, you may doubt the treatment. You can read the section “When Magnesium Makes Me Worse” in my ReMag book to understand what’s happening. However, most people who take ReMag begin to feel better right away.

Another tip in taking ReMag is to put a full day’s dose in a liter of water and sip throughout the day. Begin with ¼ tsp per day for 2 days and every 2 days add another ¼ tsp. The therapeutic dose can be 2-3 tsp or even 4 tsp a day. The maintenance dosage amount on the ReMag label says ½ tsp twice a day – this is the dose you take after you saturate your body with ReMag and take ReLyte for the other minerals and get your Magnesium RBC blood levels up to 6.0-6.5mg/dL. To follow your magnesium saturation, you can order your own Magnesium RBC test from Request A Test without a doctor’s script. More information on these is in the free ReMag and ReLyte books under the FAQs at RnA ReSet.

ReLyte is a good addition to the treatment of RLS in case there are other mineral deficiencies involved. In my ReLyte book I also give a recipe for potassium broth if low potassium shows up on your blood tests.

Death by Modern Medicine 3rd Edition

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Saturday, September 20, 2014

Forewords by Dr. Abram Hoffer, Dr. Joseph Mercola and Dr. Julian Whitaker set the stage for a book that identifies the tragic aspects of a medical system that in its short history of about eighty years, has managed to kill tens of millions of victims. My paper, “Death by Medicine”, written in November 2003, was the first to identify the extent of these casualties. In Death by Modern Medicine, published in 2005 I tried to fathom the reasons why.

Using government databases and peer review journals I found that the annual death rate due to iatrogenic medicine was 783,936 at a total cost of $282 billion to the public. In the 2008, 2nd edition, the annual death rate had risen to 895,936 but the total cost to the public only rose a fraction to $282.85 billion. In the 3rd edition, the death rate is now hovering over one million. The 2013-2014 annual death rate is 1,095,936 at a total cost of $282.85 billion. It appears that allopathic medicine is working to keep the costs down but their efforts have not affected the death rate.

Many people are shocked by these statistics and don’t believe such a thing is possible. But we’ve seen evidence of a single drug, like Vioxx causing 140,000 fatal or near fatal reaction; one third of the millions of women who took fen-phen, the weight loss drug, suffered heart and lung damage; heart disease is caused by Celebrex and all the other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs; Prozac is causing suicides and homicides as well as heart disease – the list goes on and the numbers accumulate.

Death by Modern Medicine goes beyond the statistics of deaths due to drugs to explore the medical monopoly and it’s control over health care. The book is 483 pages long with chapters on propaganda, health care bureaucracy, the business of cancer, media, our own personal addictions to sugar and drugs, and the denial we all harbor to help us cope.

Why should you read this book? It will help you realize that the medical establishment, the government and medical insurance are not going to take care of you. Once that becomes very clear then it’s easier for you to begin taking responsibility for your own health.

In this 3rd edition of Death by Modern Medicine, I list the following as my personal solutions to Death by Medicine.

1. Listen to Studio B on Achieve Radio for 24/7 Radio Free iON.

2. Take the Completement Formulas: RnA Drops, ReAline, ReMag, ReLyte and ReNew.

3. Get Happy and Get Healthy and your joy will spill over to others.

The link under Death by Modern Medicine goes to my website where you can scroll down and order the Kindle or the PDF copy of the book for only $9.99. Amazon is taking a while to enter the new text on the 2014 edition but the cover shows the 3rd edition quite clearly.

Rewire Your Brain To Think Thin Summit

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Thursday, September 18, 2014

Rewire Your Brain to Think Thin is the 10th Summit I’ve done this year and it’s a free series of interviews with top specialists in weight loss.

Host Marna Goldstein Thall takes a different approach to weight loss than most. She’s focusing on how to Rewire Your Brain so that it doesn’t get in the way of your desire to lose weight. Of course when I was interviewed I said that magnesium is the most well known tool to help rewire your brain.

Byron Richards wrote that in a 2011 study, researchers found that Magnesium Improves Fear Conditions. Elevated brain levels of magnesium induce the production of BDNF, a brain rejuvenation compound. This leads to an increase in synaptic plasticity (malleability), enabling, for example, a learned fear response to actually change. Emotional experiences contribute to future behavior and are influenced by fear or anxiety. Intense painful experiences can lead to an overheated brain stem and limbic system. But, elevating brain levels of magnesium can help undo the bad programming and help create new brain response patterns not influenced by fear or anxiety. There is no need to get stuck in a rut. Fear and anxiety erect obstacles that interfere with the quality of life and willingness to do new things. Magnesium is a potent anti-inflammatory mineral, which eliminates brain irritation that can cause behavioral changes. Magnesium also helps make energy in the brain. The fact that magnesium is able to assist in the rewiring of past memories is good news for any person who is tired of listening to their old tapes play at the most inopportune times.

A highly absorbed form of magnesium like my ReMag will cross the blood brain barrier. However, people with a history of trauma and toxicity should introduce magnesium very slowly because as magnesium enters cells it will force heavy metals and foreign chemicals out of the cells and perhaps cause a detox or healing reaction. However, magnesium is needed by all the detoxification pathways of the liver so it’s crucial to take magnesium when you are going on a weight loss program. People who lose weight can feel more toxic if they don’t have enough magnesium to assist.

Another aspect of weight loss that I spoke about on the Thin Within Summit is the need for healthy thyroid function. To achieve that I recommend ReLyte, a highly absorbed multiple mineral with 12 minerals including iodine, selenium and the half dozen minerals required by the thyroid to perform its functions.

A big part of the Thin Within Summit is how to use your thoughts and emotions to make losing weight easier and more automatic. Various guest speakers will talk about NLP, EFT, Access Therapy, TBR, Neuro Nutrition, guided meditations, and hypnotherapy. However I think our RnA Drops cut to the chase giving you “Bliss in a Bottle.” Countless people have said that when they take the RnA Drops they stop worrying; the labyrinth of the mind stops spinning endless scenarios of self doubt; you wake up each day as a new person with new cells and don’t bring your past into your new life. Listening to the words of iON will also help remind you of that you are in charge and you create your own reality.

In summary: Sign up for the free summit: Rewire Your Brain to Think Thin. And:

1. Listen to Studio B on Achieve Radio for 24/7 Radio Free iON.

2. Take the Completement Formulas: RnA Drops, ReAline, ReMag, ReLyte and ReNew.

3. Get Happy and Get Healthy and your joy will spill over to others.

Viruses & Vaccines: The Future of Medicine

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Wednesday, September 17, 2014

A client told me, before it was discovered that she mainly suffers from a specific magnesium deficiency condition, there was some talk of her symptoms being caused by a latent virus infection. She asked me how to treat this virus.

I said attacking the virus was not the answer. There are precedents for latent viruses popping up and causing harm. Shingles is a reactivated chicken pox virus and everyone knows they can appear when someone is under great stress. Even the common cold virus will rear its ugly head during the holidays when people are run down and exposed to armies of germs at parties and celebrations.

Stress is the key to virus infections – they are lurking around everyone but only gain a foothold when your immune system is vulnerable. When I was doing AIDS and chronic fatigue clinical trials in New York we asked for blood tests on every possible virus. We found antibodies to herpes, CMV, Epstein Barr, hepatitis and varicella zoster (chickenpox) in everyone we tested. The weaker the individual’s immune system the more they would express these viruses.

So, to tell someone they have a latent virus is simply to say that they are run down and immune-compromised. In natural medicine, we use diet, lifestyle and supplementation. In my world I give people the Completement Formulas to build the immune system and perfect cells. I also treat yeast overgrowth to keep viruses in their place. Before I began taking my RnA Drops and Completement Formulas, cold sores would blossom on my lips when exposed to the sun. Now, even though I live in the fabulous Maui sunshine, I’m not affected.

However, in allopathic medicine viruses have become the enemy and we are being told that vaccines are the cure.

There is a subtle shift away from a focus on bacterial infections and the ineffectiveness of antibiotics to a concerted effort to vaccinate the pubic against every as many viruses as possible. I talk about this in Death by Modern Medicine in a section called “The Vaccine Flu Business,” where there is the avid promotion of vaccines to prevent flu, cervical cancer, avian flu, HIV, and many other diseases. But do they even work? The Cochrane Collaborative meta analysis on the flu vaccine concluded that the evidence does not support universal immunization of healthy adults. In fact, the report says the flu shot only reduces the incidence of clinical influenza an average of 6%. If they can’t even get the flu vaccine right, how can we trust the ones that have much less research and testing behind them?

Note: The 2014 3rd Edition of Death by Modern Medicine is available on Kindle. The PDF copy has not been updated but will be this week.

In summary: Don’t make viruses and vaccines your future. Try not to be thrown in to fear that you are a sitting duck for viral infections with no way to protect yourself. Here are my recommendations:

1. Listen to Studio B on Achieve Radio for 24/7 Radio Free iON.

2. Take the Completement Formulas: RnA Drops, ReAline, ReMag, ReLyte and ReNew.

3. Get Happy and Get Healthy and your joy will spill over to others.
