Anxiety Mended with Magnesium: Join The Anxiety Summit

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, October 31, 2014
I’ve mentioned Trudy Scott’s upcoming “Anxiety Summit” in several of my recent blogs. Then, a few days ago I wrote “Before Magnesium I Was A Wreck” and received an overwhelming response from readers who were quite amazed by the story of a young client in her 30s who was housebound and desperate with overwhelming symptoms of anxiety until she took magnesium. There was another wave of interest as my client posted her story on several forums and received hundreds of private messages. 

I should have realized what a HUGE topic anxiety is! Here are some facts from the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (with my comments in brackets).

  1. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older; 18% of U.S. population.
  2. Anxiety disorders are highly treatable, yet only about one-third of those suffering receive treatment. (The medical treatment is therapy and medication.)
  3. Anxiety disorders cost the U.S. more than $42 billion a year, almost one-third of the country’s $148 billion total mental health bill. (By 2006, that amount was $57.5 billion and likely much more by 2014.)
  4. More than $22.84 billion of those costs are associated with the repeated use of health care services; people with anxiety disorders seek relief for symptoms that mimic physical illnesses. (If magnesium deficiency is a major cause of anxiety and people don’t take magnesium, their symptoms escalate, especially when they take unnecessary drugs with many side effects that further deplete magnesium.)
  5. People with an anxiety disorder are 3-5 times more likely to go to the doctor and 6 times more likely to be hospitalized for psychiatric disorders than those who do not suffer from anxiety disorders. (And that’s because drugs will not treat a magnesium deficiency, they will just make it worse.)
  6. Anxiety disorders develop from a complex set of risk factors, including genetics, brain chemistry, personality, and life events. (They of course leave out magnesium and mineral deficiencies!)

After I wrote “Before Magnesium I Was A Wreck”, my client remembered even more symptoms that she used to have. I’ve added them to the original blog, so you can go back and reread it. My client says she is now 90% better and what’s left over will be eliminated when she can find time in her busy schedule to do a good exercise program! I guess I’ll have to remind her to read my Lying Down Therapy blog!

I brought the magnesium and mineral message to my interview for the Anxiety Summit. My talk, “Take Magnesium and Melt Your Anxiety Away: The Mineral Biochemistry of Anxiety” takes place on Nov 11, 2014.   That’s Veteran’s Day and a fitting time to listen to a talk that deals with symptoms that many veterans who have been in combat situations suffer from.

Highlights of my interview: I talk about the overuse of Vitamin D and how high doses can make you magnesium deficient. I list the many commonly used drugs that are embedded with fluoride molecules that makes them more toxic in the cells since the fluoride can bind with magnesium into a brittle substance that can damage tissues and tendons. I run through the scenario of a stressed-out, magnesium-deficient individual going to the doctor and being mistreated for high blood pressure with medications instead of magnesium. The medications used for high blood pressure can further drain magnesium and lead to magnesium-deficiency side effects of diabetes and high cholesterol. I mention the Magnesium RBC blood test as a way of following your magnesium saturation instead of serum magnesium.

It was a very thorough interview. Even if you’re read my books on magnesium, The Magnesium Miracle and my Invisible Minerals Part I – Magnesium, you will learn more from my talk. For anxiety, I do think magnesium and minerals along with sea salt are the most important nutrients to support a healthy mind and body; I also add B complex and C complex vitamins. You can go to my Resources page for my short and comprehensive list.

In this interview I didn’t have time to go beyond the magnesium and mineral connection to anxiety but there are other solutions that you can learn from the long list of other guest speakers. So, be sure and sign up for the Anxiety Summit now and mark your calendar for November 3-16, 2014.

Before Magnesium I Was A Wreck

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Wednesday, October 29, 2014

The following report is from a 34-year old client and mother of two young teens. She told me that before she started taking magnesium she was a wreck. She gave me permission to share her story in hopes that it will help people to understand the benefits of magnesium.

People of all ages experience these same symptoms, but if you treat them with medications and not magnesium, by the time you are 50 or 60 you’ve added drug side effects, adrenal exhaustion, thyroid fatigue and menopausal symptoms. These symptoms are still treatable with my Completement Formulas, but a far better solution is early treatment and prevention.

My client says:

In 2014 all the stress in my life finally caught up with me. Being an overly worried mom, school volunteer, perfectionist wife, people pleaser, business owner w/ husband and everyone’s go-to-person took me over the edge

Panic attacks and anxiety were in full swing and it just got worse. Before all this I was very confident and strong willed and could do anything and drive anywhere. One day, supposedly “out of the blue” I had a panic attack on the road driving and it scared me so much that I was afraid it would happen again and the fear overwhelmed me and created a mass of episodes daily.

These are the things I could no longer do:
* be around groups of people
* eat at restaurants
* leave the house
* drive far distances or even wait for over 5 minutes in a car without panicking.. The heat made it worse.
* go to work
* watch anything bad on TV or hear bad stories…
* sit for more than 10 minutes watching TV without twitching
* go to the store or movies

I became afraid of Western Doctors. I still am due to pill pushers trying to make me take drugs. I was scared to take anything new (vitamins and supplements). I was actually afraid they might kill me.

Body effects Daily from anxiety and panic attacks:
* Insomnia
* Twitching-shoulders, legs, eyes, face, feet other body parts
* Head scratching/picking from nerves
* A sense of ready to jump out of my skin and ready to lose it
* Stomach issues- indigestion, fullness with little food, pain, choking feeling and gagging
* Weird head sensations and burning
* Numbness and tingling in face and extremities
* Sharp pains in the back between shoulder blades
* Sensitivity to heat
* Lack of appetite
* Afraid I was going to die daily and never going to get better
* Loss of muscle strength
* Bad/fear thoughts
* Nightmares
* Loss of weight due to lack of appetite
* Easy bruising
* Everything frustrated me
* Crying easily

There were other symptoms that are hard to just put in a few words. I would wake up from a  deep sleep with panic and gasp for air thinking this is it, I’m dying because I couldn’t catch my breath. I could be shaking so badly from the anxiety that my joints would tighten up; I couldn’t move and I would be frozen cold. I would have my husband hold me to calm me down and warm me up. When I was really bad, I had insomnia where I would fall asleep and 10-15 min later I would jolt awake. This would happen over and over for hours and hours. I also had what I call a Nervous Bladder where I would want to go to the bathroom and couldn’t or I would go a lot but only produce small amounts of urine.

I became a research queen and prayed a whole lot and I feel like the higher power lead me to Magnesium. Before I knew it, Magnesium was everywhere I looked, on books, on covers of magazines where I went, on and on and I took it as a sign. The final kicker was when I was on the internet researching natural solutions and I ran across a man who was referring people to the Magnesium Miracle book by Dr. Dean because he said it is a miracle.

I emailed him, he replied and told me how his over 25 yrs. of depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts ended by the miracle of Magnesium. It was a major sign, the man is a NASA scientist and I believed him – we still keep in touch.

All through this time all the doctors just wanted me to be on Paxil or Celexa. I tried them and they made me feel worse. Dr. Dean later warned me that they both contain fluoride. Doctors told me I had an anxiety disorder and it will NEVER go away. No wonder I was terrified of them. I was hopeless and they gave me no hope.

I had a consult with Dr. Dean and started her ReMag (magnesium) at a snail’s pace because I was still terrified of everything killing me – but she told me that even a few drops would begin helping and they did and I increased my dose over time. The symptoms disappeared day-by-day and week-by-week.

I also took Vitamin C complex and B complex from Grown by Nature. I incorporated getting outdoors as much as possible, looking at nature and daily meditation/contemplation. I realized I had to slow down and look at my life in a different way. I even felt I had to eliminate the negative people from my life and focus on what I love and enjoy

Now, when symptoms creep up, I can pin point what I have done to cause my magnesium deficiency and simply increase it. I also too the advice of a dear friend who said “Just know that you will get better.”

My client shared her story with me and I’m sharing it with you. Please pass it on to all your friends and share it with health forums and health clubs. Besides my ReMag I recommend my 100% absorbed multiple mineral, ReLyte to my clients and ReAline for a safe detoxifier and RnA Drops for helping make perfect cells.

I make no apologies for recommending my own Completement Formulas. I do that because they work so well. ReMag is much better than all other magnesium products because it is 100% absorbed at the cellular level; it helps detox cells and turn on 700-800 different enzyme systems in the body that give us energy during the day and sleep at night!

Magnesium: Safe and Effective

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, October 24, 2014
Unbeknownst to me, one of my magnesium videos was featured on a new online publication called Organic Health. The article that quotes me is called Magnesium – The Missing Link to Better Health. I learned about it from a Facebook forward where some people were saying that magnesium could be dangerous. 

I replied with the following:You have to read more about magnesium from clinical reports not from medical websites. I learned nothing about magnesium in medical school. Doctors just think magnesium is a laxative and are not aware that it’s needed by 700-800 enzyme systems in the body. So, 80% of the population ends up with severe magnesium deficiency; drugs cause magnesium deficiency – especially all the fluoride drugs; there is only 1/3rd of the magnesium in the soil compared to 100 years ago; fluoride and chlorine in the water depletes magnesium – the list is pretty long.

Thus, in my books I conclude that magnesium is a necessary supplement; it’s also extremely safe – if you take too much at one time, it will cause diarrhea and therefore not build up in the body. The opposite happens with calcium supplements; they are so poorly absorbed, they are causing heart disease because they precipitate in the soft tissues of the body including the arteries. Most people can get their calcium from their diet – especially if they eat dairy. You can learn more about calcium and 11 more minerals in my ReLyte book, which is a free download at RnA ReSet under the FAQs.

Magnesium is a big topic but very exciting – especially when you take the type of magnesium that I work with – ReMag, which is 100% absorbed at the cellular level and has no laxative effect. ReMag is the topic of another free eBook under the FAQs at RnA ReSet.

The more widely spread is the topic of magnesium the more people are going to google and come across ridiculous statements by people who know nothing about this miraculous mineral and how it is saving lives. To counter that misinformation, read my books that contain miraculous testimonials.

Here is one miracle I heard about yesterday. A client of mine took it into her own hands to give her 87-year old, senile father magnesium and slowly wean him off his half-dozen medications. She gradually increased his dose of ReMag to 5 tsp per day and says he has come back to life. Her family is astonished at the miraculous recovery of the father they thought they had lost to dementia.

These types of miracles you have to create yourself. Doctors do not learn about magnesium in medical school and will never be able to guide you in taking this lifesaving mineral.

Drugs for Restless Leg Syndrome and Parkinson’s Trigger Serious Impulse Control Disorders

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Parkinson’s disease and restless legs syndrome are being treated by dopamine agonists drugs that include Pramipexole (Mirapex, Mirapexin, Sifrol) and Ropinirole (Requip, Repreve, Ronirol, Adartrel). If you are taking one of these drugs you may not be aware that over the past 10 years they have been linked to the bizarre side effects of pathologic gambling, compulsive shopping, and other impulse control disorders.

The researchers, from the Drug Safety and Policy, Institute for Safe Medication Practices, Alexandria, Virginia conclude that “… the associations were significant, the magnitude of the effects was large, and the effects were seen for all 6 dopamine receptor agonist drugs.” The study, published online can be found in the Oct 20, 2014 edition of JAMA Internal Medicine.

The study analyzed adverse drug events reported by physicians into the FDA Adverse Event Reporting System database from 2003 to 2012. Of the 1580 reports of impulse control disorders, gambling was the most frequent behavior, reported (39.7%), followed by hypersexuality (29.4%), compulsive shopping (12.8%), and poriomania (the morbid impulse to wander away from home (7.9%)). Since very few doctors take the time to report adverse drug events, the 1580 reports were by no means exhaustive.

None of the dopamine receptor agonist drugs approved by the FDA have boxed warnings. The authors warn that “Physicians who prescribe dopamine agonists should also vigilantly monitor their patients and ensure that patients, families, and caregivers are counseled about the risk of these serious adverse events.”

My advice is to take magnesium for these conditions. I’ve blogged that Restless Legs Need Magnesium.

Regarding Parkinson’s disease, I can direct you to a free eBook Magnesium in the Central Nervous System that contains a study called “Magnesium in Parkinson’s Disease: An Update In Clinical And Basic Aspects”. The abstract reads as follows: “Magnesium (Mg) is essential for cell functions such as transport of calcium and potassium ions, and modulates signal transduction, energy metabolism, and cell proliferation. Several studies elucidated a reduced concentration of Mg in patients with Parkinson’s disease, and experimentally, severe loss of dopaminergic neurons exclusively in the substantia nigra in 1-year old rats that has been subjected to continuously low Mg intake one-fifth of the normal level) over generations. A study conducted by the authors revealed a significant and striking effect of Mg to prevent neurite and neuron pathology and also to ameliorate neurite pathology in a rat Parkinson disease module involving culture of ventral mesencephalic-striatal cells.”

The most effective and efficient form of magnesium to use is my ReMag. It’s 100% absorbed at the cellular level and does not cause a laxative effect.

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.

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.

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.”
