Help for Hemorrhoids

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Wednesday, April 22, 2015
I’ve been itching (pun intended) to write a blog about hemorrhoids for ages. They are common; they are irritating but they can be treated naturally.

You may wonder how I’m going to bring magnesium into this blog! Well, that’s easy. When you don’t have enough magnesium to relax your intestinal muscles, you get constipated, which puts pressure on the anal canal and can cause hemorrhoids to pop out.

I do say that ReMag is not laxative because it does not cause diarrhea but if your constipation is caused by tight intestinal muscles, then ReMag is the cure.

Here is an excerpt from my Future Health Now Encyclopedia, which, by the way, you should have on hand to answer any health concern you might have. Within its 538 pages I cover ailments with many choices of treatments. I also go into optimum eating and cleansing. The final section of the book includes a comprehensive homeopathic handbook.

Hemorrhoids occur in the anal canal and can be internal (invisible) or external (protruding from the anal canal). They are weakened, swollen veins that can swell and even bleed due to pressure from the liver’s major blood circulation, pressure from constipation, pregnancy, sitting all day – especially in a car or truck or straining the abdomen in any way. They can cause a fair amount of disability and irritation.

A discussion of hemorrhoids was my topic when I first appeared on the television show The View. When we rehearsed the segment, I had a huge audience of the show’s crew, mostly men, who seemed very interested in hemorrhoids. After rehearsal, one of the producers remarked that she hadn’t seen such a turnout since Pamela Lee Anderson’s rehearsal!

On that show, I demonstrated that hemorrhoids are like a cluster of grapes that pop out of the anal canal. I used the cardboard center of an empty toilet roll to demonstrate the canal and grapes to show how they were positioned as they burst out of the canal. The crowd was in hysterics. Meredith Vieira, one of the show’s hosts, not to be outdone, said hers were even bigger than grapes after giving birth.

Surgical treatment can be very simple for single hemorrhoids. A gastroenterologist expertly places a very tight rubber band at the base of the hemorrhoid to cut off circulation; the hemorrhoid then shrinks and dries up within a few days.

If you have hemorrhoids or rectal fissures, pay special attention to cleaning the anus after a bowel movement. Tiny sharp particles in the feces (especially from seeds or nuts) can cut the anal skin. A bidet is the best solution, allowing you to wash the area immediately after a bowel movement. Otherwise use soft, undyed, unscented toilet paper. Wet some paper and clean the first inch of the anal canal. A thin, wet washcloth and neutral pH soap can also be used.

Diet:

Treatment begins by eating an optimum diet and eliminating alcohol, cigarettes and drugs. Treat constipation with a high-fiber diet, including bran and beets. Foods that help veins regain elasticity are garlic, onions, lecithin, okra, green leafy vegetables and whole grains. Use plenty of liquids and avoid straining when passing stool. Veins are strengthened by bioflavonoids, which are part of the vitamin C complex. These nutrients help treat varicose veins, uterine hemorrhage and strokes. Food sources are buckwheat or citrus pulp.

First Aid:

* Anurex: This is a reusable suppository that is chilled in the freezer and when inserted into a painful anus gives immediate relief and also lasting relief as it treats inflammation and flattens hemorrhoids. Obtain it from the Anurex website.

* Sit on a donut-shaped cushion to take the pressure off the area while they are healing.

* Sitz baths: Use one or a combination of witch hazel, plantain leaves, comfrey root or white oak bark. These herbs are all strong astringents. Use 2 ounces of dried herb and 1/2 gallon of boiling water. Steep for one hour, strain, pour some into a shallow pan and sit in it for fifteen minutes.

* Vitamin E oil on the area is soothing and can relieve swelling.

* To ease swelling and pain, coat a piece of potato the size of your small finger with vitamin E and insert into the anus.

* For swelling, bleeding and pain, apply comfrey ointment.

* For pain and to assist shrinking of the swollen tissues, apply plantain and yarrow ointment.

* Zinc ointment and vitamin E oil can also help heal fissures, which may occur along with hemorrhoids. Most of the above suggestions for hemorrhoids are useful for fissures.

Supplements:

* Magnesium: Choose ReMag, a 100% absorbed, bioavailable, non-laxative magnesium. Dosage: ½ -1 tsp twice per day. This mineral drives 700-800 enzyme systems and is responsible for the production of energy in the body.

* Multi-mineral: Use 100% bioavailable ReLyte multiple mineral, which contains 12 complementary minerals. Zinc, copper, selenium and magnesium are especially important for healing blood vessels. Dosage: ¾ tsp three times per day.

* Vitamin C complex: Choose a food-based organic product. Dosage: One tablet, once or twice daily to support the adrenal glands. I recommend Grown by Nature. (Use gbn123 at checkout.)

* RnA Drops: A unique product made from barley sprouts that test negative for gluten and produce a unique cell called the iCell, which helps make perfect cells and balances

body, mind and spirit. Read the FAQs at RnA ReSet for dosage instructions and more information.

* ReAline: A companion product to RnA Drops, but may also be used alone as a safe, natural detoxifier that assists any condition. It contains dl’methionine, the precursor to glutathione and l’taurine along with methylated B vitamins and Betaine HCL. Dosage: 1 capsule twice per day.

Atrial Fibrillation: The Magnesium Option

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, April 19, 2015
I’ve neglected my blog posts recently because I’m busy writing a short book on Atrial Fibrillation. I was motivated to do this when I found my picture, my Magnesium Miracle book and my words being used, without my permission, to sell a $30.00 book that promotes the surgical treatment of Atrial Fibrillation. I decided to write an inexpensive Kindle book and offer, what I know to be, a safe option for preventing and treating this condition. That option is very simple and very effective and consists of minerals (especially magnesium) and proper hydration.

In the book I’ll talk about my own brand of magnesium (ReMag), which is 100% absorbed at the cellular level. And I make no bones about it because I’ve come to realize over the past several years that it’s the unprecedented absorption of ReMag that allows you to reach therapeutic levels without any laxative effects. Up till now, many people haven’t know how much to take and when they get diarrhea they immediately stop their magnesium and don’t k now how to proceed. Cardiologists, to this day, prescribe magnesium oxide, which is only 4% absorbed causing worse magnesium deficiency as the diarrhea progresses.

Because I have severe magnesium deficiency symptoms if I don’t take ReMag, I’ve been able to personally research all the intricacies involved. If you’re read my ReMag book with the section called When Magnesium Makes Me Worse, you realize that ReMag isn’t like some drug that suppresses symptoms and then creates a hundred side effects. Instead, ReMag creates hundreds of beneficial effects – some of which stir up the body and can be misinterpreted as a side effect.

In my AFib book, I’ll be talking about the many natural back-up pacemakers in the hear that can be irritated into activity by magnesium deficiency spasms; the role of dehydration in people that can lead to blood clotting; the need for adequate magnesium, minerals and sea salt in cells. Adequate water and optimum minerals reinvigorate cells and allow for proper function. Minerals in the cells pulls water in after them removing edema from ankles and legs.

NOTE: When patients have ankle edema, what do doctors do? They prescribe diuretics that drain out more water and more minerals! The exact opposite of what you require.

On every page of the book I will discuss how magnesium deficiency is associated with all the so-called causes of AFib such as: high blood pressure, heart attacks, coronary artery disease, and exposure to stimulants like drugs, caffeine, tobacco and alcohol. So, it’s not enough to give these “causes” of AFib without acknowledging that all these causes are really just a manifestation of magnesium deficiency!

I’ve read two recent books on AFib, they both reference me and the Magnesium Miracle but they don’t focus on magnesium deficiency because they don’t have access to ReMag and the miracles that it can produce.

Steve’s Case Story:

“I am a 57-year old man who was diagnosed with AFib 4 months ago. My symptoms included an irregular heartbeat, shortness of breath, anxiety, and lack of strength. I was unable to walk up a short flight of stairs without my symptoms kicking in. Up to this point I had been a very healthy person that did regular workouts and ate extremely healthy. The next month consisted of a cardioversion and numerous visits with doctors and electrophysiologists. I was put on 3 different prescription drugs and told I would need a catheter ablation. During this time, my condition did not improve.

I kept reading and researching a-fib and noticed that while my doctors could never give me a reason for my AFib, Dr. Dean said it was due to a lack of magnesium. I contacted her and she prescribed ReMag (1 tsp twice a day), ReLyte (1/2 tsp three times a day) and she told me to start slowly on them at ½ tsp a day and working up by ½ tsp every 3 days. She also had me take a Magnesium RBC blood test which confirmed my magnesium was low. I started to feel more energized after taking the ReMag, ReLyte, although I was still taking my prescription drugs. I was seeing improvement, but my pulse was still irregular and anytime I did something physical, my AFib symptoms came back.

During this time, I continued to watch videos and read articles by Dr. Dean. She mentioned that some drugs could block the magnesium from working in your body. It was at that time that I decided on my own to stop taking my prescription drugs. I decided it was the magnesium that was making me better. I asked Dr. Dean how to wean off my prescription drugs, which she said to do one at a time and by cutting the pills in half and then in quarters and reducing every 3-4 days.

The rest of the story is I noticed great improvement after getting off the prescription drugs. It was the breakthrough I had been hoping for. My pulse has been steady. My energy is great. All my symptoms disappeared. I am back to doing physical activities; walking on the treadmill, jumping rope, and shoveling snow! Getting off the prescription drugs, I feel, allowed my magnesium to work. My follow up RBC test shows that my magnesium level is back up where it should be. I feel better and better each day!

After numerous doctors’ visits that all told me I needed prescription drugs and catheter ablations, it was Dr.Dean who guided me back to health.

I cannot express in words how thankful I am for all that Dr. Dean has done for me. Thank-you, Dr. Dean for giving me a life back that allows me to do all the things I desire and enjoy!”

My recommendation for people with AFib is to go to RnA ReSet, read the two eBooks on ReMag and ReLyte under the INFO link and follow the Completement Formulas protocol. Taking all four Completement Formulas gives the best results.

SUMMITS: May 4th: Terry Sobon invited me to speak at her exclusive Beautiful, Sexy, Badass Over 40 telesummit event that launches May 4, 2015.

Learning to Walk Right

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, April 10, 2015
In Sept 2013 I talked about using Egoscue exercises to Align the Perfect Cells that we are forming with the Completement Formulas. I’ve used some of the exercises eversince, but recently I found an Egoscue practitioner in my neighborhood and began the program in earnest.On the day I received my list of exercises, I met a family therapist who told me about her experience with a Kaiser physical therapist that she saw for neck and shoulder spasms. Of course, she was not told to take magnesium for her muscle spasms; that’s not unusual. But what I found incredible was that the therapist made it clear that she was not allowed to touch my friend during the course of her therapy.Lord Sufferin’ Cats. How in the name of Glory can you properly identify a person’s problem and set them on a course of therapy if you can’t touch them! Such is the state of medicine and all the ancillary departments of medicine that they are doing the exact opposite of what needs to be done.

Since you will never hear it from your doctor, I’ve set myself the task to make recommendations for body alignment exercises that you will find on my Aligning Perfect Cells blog.  These exercises will help you better take care of your own health – because medicine is not equipped to do the job.

For example, when has a doctor ever asked you to walk across the floor to assess your gait and give you a program to correct your gait? When has a doctor ever taken front, side and back pictures of your posture and prescribed physical therapy. Of course, if you went to a physical therapist in a medical clinic they would just point to some pictures in a book and tell you to do that exercise so you’d be no further ahead!

My Egoscue therapist looked at the soles of my shoes and showed me where they were worn down on the outside of the heels without much wear on the ball of the foot. So, he prescibed heel-ball-toe walking so that I really feel the ball of my foot engaging the ground. At first it felt strange and but now it feels normal to walk with my toes pointed straight ahead and not Walking Like A Duck! Yes, I’ve blogged about that too!

I do shudder when I see people walking and even running with their feet pointing at a 45 degree angle. For all the good aerobic exercise is doing for their lungs, they are setting themsevles up for hip and knee replacement because of the abnormal angle ricocheting up from their feet.

I’ve got a dozen exercises to do and I love doing them because I know they are waking up hundreds of muscles in my body that I hardly ever use. Think about it; we have 600 muscles and we rarely engage them all. But if we did, our body would work much more efficiently.

An Atrial Fibrillation Epidemic

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, April 3, 2015
I’ve written about AFib and magnesium many times because it’s reaching epidemic proportions. I received “The Arrhythmia Alliance Outstanding Medical Contribution to Cardiac Rhythm Management Services Award 2012″ from the Heart Rhythm Society. In spite of that, magnesium continues to go unnoticed. Doctors meet by the thousands in conferences dedicated to AFib and come way with more drugs and more surgical procedures to treat the symptoms of this condition.

Why is the heart suddenly beating erratically and mystifying doctors? Because they do not even measure magnesium when they investigate AFib. Because they don’t ask their patients if they are drinking enough water. Because they don’t make sure their patients are taking enough magnesium and other minerals including sea salt in their water. Because 80% of the population is magnesium deficient and heart palpitations are a symptom of magnesium deficiency.

I’ve said many times that doctors do not see patients with AFib or other heart conditions getting better – so they assume that they have to keep patients on their drugs to have any hope of survival. They don’t even pause to think that their drugs can be causing more magnesium and mineral deficiency and worsening of symptoms. Instead, they browbeat their patients into taking medications and make patients’ symptoms worse with their scare tactics.

Here’s what one new client told me about her brush with modern medicine:

“I saw a doctor from hell who diagnosed me with having Atrial Fibrillation. He told me outright that the bad news was that I would be on blood thinners for life. I told him, no, that if I had AFib I would opt for the catheter ablation procedure that would be my best chance for a cure.

He screamed at me that there is NO CURE for AFib. By the time I got out of there I thought I was going to stroke out in the parking lot. Then, to top it all off, he only spent 10 minutes with me and billed my insurance $600.00. I never went back but after that appointment my symptoms were much worse. I was scared.

I did a lot of research and found another cardiologist. He looked at the EKGs and said I had been misdiagnosed. I had no signs of AFib. Instead I have relatively benign PACs (premature atrial contractions). But even he said I will develop AFib down the road. I had a consult with one of the best electrophysiologists in the country and he also said I don’t have AFib or anything serious as of now.”

Each doctor she saw assumed she was going to get worse and offered her no hope of curing her PACs and preventing AFib. However, you can read An Atrial Fibrillation Testimonal from one of my clients who found that by drinking enough water (with sea salt), and ReMag and ReLyte minerals and taking back his power, he was able to wean off his meds and eliminate his symptoms.

I get emails and reports like this from people every week saying they have overcome symptoms of heart arrhythmia with my Completement Formulas. After all, AFib is mostly an electrolyte mineral imbalance in the heart. But the scare tactics of modern medicine put fear into people that they have an incurable heart condition. So, you have to not only treat the physical symptoms of mineral deficiency but the psychological fear of doctors and medicine.

One of the treatments for fear is Walnut, the Bach Flower Remedy, which is called The Link Breaker. It helps break links with past fears and traumas and keeps them from being triggered in the present and linked to the past.

March Media Spotlight

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Tuesday, March 31, 2015
March 2015 was a very busy media month and I’d like to blog the highlights instead of just listing them at the end as an afterthought. Dr. Mercola and his team have continued their love affair with magnesium with a publication on Mar 30, 2015 called:  “Can Magnesium Reduce Your Risk of Diabetes?” On Facebook the title reads “22 Little-Known Dangers of Magnesium Deficiency” which is a quote and a list taken from my Magnesium Miracle book. A sidebar on that page had a Mar 3, 2014 article called “Magnesium May Help Prevent Hip Fractures” where they quoted my statistics on the increase in osteoporosis because of massive prescribing of calcium supplements. Magnesium, The Missing Link to Better Health is a magnesium video I did for Dr. Mercola that was uploaded Dec 2013. It’s had over 600,000 views and is the perfect video to forward to people you want to educate about magnesium.

I’ve blogged about Dr. Mercola’s latest book called Effortless Healing: 9 Simple Ways to Sidestep Illness, Shed Excess Weight, and Help Your body Fix Itself. I praise Dr. Mercola for having the courage to go back to basics and put the power to heal back in the hands of the individual.

Tony Wrighton interviewed me about magnesium and minerals and posted “The Natural Miracle that Improves Health, Energy and Sleep.” Tony is one of the UK’s top sports TV personalities, personal development authors and presenters. And Tony loves Magnesium.

Damien interviewed me on The Quantified Body about “The Tricky Art of Testing for and Fixing Magnesium Deficiency.” He sent me several links to share with my readers: Blog Link with Audio Interview + Show Notes, iTunes Link. Mar 15.

I did a great interview with Jonathon Landsman about my book, Death by Modern Medicine: Seeking Safe Solutions. He created an article out of our interview called: “Three Reasons Why Modern Medicine Will Never Cure Chronic Disease” and posted it on NaturalNews. An iPod of the interview should eventually appear on Jonathon’s website.

An article called “Why We’re All Deficient In Magnesium, The Many Signs & What To Do” by Organic Olivia on March 25th came out of the blue but quoted me and The Magnesium Miracle heavily.

My interview with Travis Richardson on his Body Black Belt Summit was on March 20, 2015.

The Magnesium Miracle” with Kim Power Stilson played on Sirius Radio on Mar 11.

I was also quoted in Parade Magazine:Stay Healthy Smart Food: Give Your Body a Boost with Nutrient Rich Food.” It was a pretty watered down article attempting to make people think that they could get their nutrients from food – something that I do not believe is possible anymore. But Ginney, my cohost on Dr. Carolyn Dean Live (Mondays at 4pm PST), was impressed because Parade is apparently the most widely read magazine in the U.S., Parade has a circulation of 32 million and a readership of 54.1 million.

Other educational opportunities exist on Facebook. My blogs go to my CarolynDean FB page and great testimonials are appearing all the time on the RnA ReSet and Magnesium Miracle FB pages.

With all this attention on magnesium, Amazon has been doing a brisk trade in my Magnesium Miracle book. Amazon has an astounding 32.8 million books for sale and my sales rank is usually around 2,000 but recently it’s gone to well below 1,000. And I’m usually Number 1 in sales for Vitamin & Supplement books.

Celeste’s Garden Delights was published in March. I was asked to write a blub for the book. I said: “It is truly inspiring to read how Celeste and Bob have lived sustainably for 40 years. I appreciate the attention to minerals because they are absolutely necessary to grow healthy plants that will sustain healthy bodies. The book is sustainable in itself! It is densely packed with hundreds of action steps as well as being a very enjoyable read.”

Help for Hopeless Hypertension

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Saturday, March 28, 2015
In 2014, I was forced by the government to obtain health insurance or be hassled with fines and fees. Now I’m hassled by letters and phone calls badgering me to show up for physical exams, mammograms and blood tests, etc. It’s part of the Electronic Health Record that medicine is embracing to ensure compliance with their allopathic drugs and surgery approach.

A Medscape article lauding the EHR approach for controlling hypertension said that clinics can ensure patients keep coming back with helpful letters such as: “Your last blood pressure was 170/110 and we are gravely concerned you are at high risk for having a stroke or a heart attack. We strongly urge you to schedule an appointment.”

Medscape reported that in one such program, the EHR was credited with improving the hypertension control rate from 63.9% in 2011-2012 to 70.3% in 2012-2014. Forgive me for my cynicism, but is a 6.4% improvement in ANYTHING even worth noting.

Then it became clear that the whole incentive was directed to the following bonus system: “Physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners could receive…bonuses every quarter if at least 65% of the hypertensive patients they saw had their blood pressure controlled.” So, that 6.4% increase was just what the doctor ordered.

While practitioners are vying for bonuses, another Medscape report asks if Hypertension is Becoming More Deadly. Hypertension-related deaths rose 23.1% – from 255.1 to 314.1 per 100,000 population from 2000 to 2013. To belabor the point above – a 23.1% rise in hypertension beats the 6.4% increase in BP control by EHR methods.

Of course, I think hypertension is becoming more deadly because the drugs used to treat it cause more severe magnesium deficiency which can lead to fatal heart and stroke consequences.

How is medicine dealing with the epidemic of hypertension? They are throwing TEN different classes of blood pressure drugs (with about 10 drugs in each class) at the problem. THAT’S OVER ONE HUNDRED DRUGS, FOLKS!

Don’t you think that if blood pressure drugs were going to cure the condition, they would have done so by now? What? Nobody thought of asking doctors that question? What? We just keep doing the same wrong thing that doesn’t work over and over and – expect that it might eventually work?

In my Magnesium Miracle book I asked that question of an Internist when I sat in with him and a patient who was on 4 different types of BP medication. I asked why he didn’t use magnesium and the Internist said, I use it after I try everything else and it usually works!

Lord Sufferin’ Cats, instead of spending money on coercion and bribes and drugs that don’t work and make hypertension worse – just give ReMag to patients and you’ll see an improvement in many symptoms and conditions!

When I look at hypertension, I also consider the Total Biology “conflict” that can create this condition. Total Biology sees high blood pressure as the need for someone to try to control “territory” outside the home. The “territory” can be work or school or a person or even a club they belong to that they can no longer control or that they may lose. Of course, this is never going to be considered by allopathic medicine but it is something that you now know and can consider along with ReMag.

I often tell people to start ReMag before lifestyle changes because they often don’t have the energy or incentive to bother. But with ReMag, you can start sleeping properly, have more energy, drop your tension and irritability and then have the motivation to tackle a bit or exercise or make a home cooked meal. For more information on ReMag, read the free eBook at the RnA ReSet website.

Fast Food Failure

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, March 27, 2015
The media, instead of promoting resources for people to learn about healthy food choices, has chosen (for a fee) to support the dark side.

The Associated Press exposed Coca-Cola in a massive payola scheme to churn out deceptive corporate propaganda on over 1,000 news sites as reported in Natural News. Coca-Cola paid “fitness and nutrition experts” to place pro-Coke articles in over 1,000 news websites (including major newspapers) positioning Coca-Cola as a “healthy snack.”

I’ve talked about the high fructose corn syrup in sodas diverting magnesium away from its many important roles in the body. The phosphoric acid and chemical additives in soda don’t seem to bother the “experts” being paid to brainwash readers.

The Huffington Post ran an article titled: 10 Nutritionists Reveal What They’d Order At McDonald’s. Maybe the nutritionists, who were mostly RDs (registered dieticians) anxious to see their name in print, decided to abandon whatever concerns they may have about fast foods and played into the hands of the writer. Will we find out that this is another propaganda piece funded by McDonalds like the Coca-Cola payola scheme?

And the Dairy Council of California educates us on the oxymoron called Pizza Nutrition. Oxymoron is a figure of speech in which contradictory terms appear together. In this case the emphasis is on the word moron as the Dairy Council assures us that every food group can be found in pizza and that’s all that’s important in providing nutrition for a child.

Readers of my blog are well aware of the unhealthy nature of Coca-Cola, McDonalds and pizza. Sure you can have junk food as a treat or in an emergency but putting it out there in the media as go-to healthy foods is confusing to millions of people who believe what they read and what they see advertised on TV. This propaganda is creating a world of unhealthy people who are medicated because of their diet making them sick, unproductive and unhappy.

Sugar and simple carbs are the main ingredients in junk food. Dr. Abram Hoffer said that sugar is the most dangerous addictive substance there is and leads to further addictive behaviors.

If you have children or grandchildren who are growing up on Coca-Cola, McDonalds and pizza, engage them in The Junk Food Experiment. Ask them to give up junk food for 6 days and on a Saturday allow them anything they want for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They will usually be so sick on Sunday that they can’t help but make the connection between junk food and how they feel. It could be the turning point in their lives.

The people who come to me for telephone consultations have often been through years of bad diet choices. However, they find that a healthy diet and the Completement Formulas give them the right building blocks to repair their bodies.

Medicating with Supplements

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Saturday, March 21, 2015
Years ago I had a client who was prescribed 80 supplement pills a day by a holistic doctor. I thought that was an outrageous amount until a client told me recently that a nutritionist sold her supplements to the tune of 300-500 pills per day costing her $200-$500 per week. My client said that some of them helped but some of them made her worse.

I didn’t believe it until she sent me copies of her weekly prescriptions. My client said “Yes, I was taking up to 500 pills a day. At times I took less, but rarely did it drop below 300. It was crazy. But I was desperate, so very desperate to feel better. I finally stopped because an acupuncturist told me the supplements were making me worse and that I needed to stop all of them ASAP.  She was right, within a few days of stopping I began feeling better, stronger and not as symptomatic.”

I’ve coined the term “medicating with supplements” to emphasize the imbalance created in the body by this practice. In my experience the body works best with small amounts of food-based vitamins and well-absorbed minerals. When poorly absorbed supplements are used in huge doses, you are artificially forcing a response. The binders and fillers alone in that many pills could be toxic.

When clients come to me on dozens of supplements, I often say that if the supplements were helping they wouldn’t need to consult with me.

Another problem is that people are choosing supplements out of fear. The same tactics used by drug companies are being adopted by alternative practitioners and supplement companies: “Create the disease and offer the cure.” I also see a trend where executives from drug companies supposedly “jump ship” and take positions in supplement companies. They may say they are fed up with drugs making people sick and they want to work in a way that doesn’t harm people. That may be true, however, I see them bringing the same drug industry advertising tactics into their new careers.

Alternative medicine is certainly a better option that allopathic medicine to prevent and treat most chronic disease. But just using supplements for symptoms, I call Green Allopathy. Instead of drugs each symptom is medicated with a handful of supplements and everyone is persuaded that they are doing the right thing. I believe that people are buying the hype surrounding supplements and neglecting the basic building blocks. And, yes, I’m referring to magnesium and other important minerals that are the basis of the structure and function of the body. I would be remiss if I didn’t tell you that the simple combination of ReMag, ReLyte, ReAline and RnA Drops can replace dozens of supplement – that’s why I call them Completement Formulas.

When I first began practicing alternative medicine in 1979, I saw the rise in the use of supplements. In fact, I was responsible for it in Toronto! Instead of selling supplements, I sent my patients to health food stores and supplement dispensaries. Now the industry is huge and has lost sight of its original mission.

The seven principles of naturopathic medicine are being ignored. I want you to know them and know that this is how you will be able to recognize a true natural medicine practitioner.

1.    First Do No Harm

2.    Identify and Treat the Cause(s)

3.    Doctor as Teacher

4.    Treat The Whole Person

5.    Emphasize Prevention

6.    Support The Healing Power Of The Body

7.    Physician Heal Thyself

Treating Chronic Pain

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, March 15, 2015
The pain killer, acetaminophen has been found to have more risks than originally thought, according to a new comprehensive review (March 1, 2015 in BMJ). Acetaminophin is the most widely used over-the-counter and prescription analgesic worldwide but studies suggest a connection to diabetes, hypertension and coronary artery disease. Of course, these conditions are related to magnesium deficiency. Yet doctors keep ignoring the fact that their drugs deplete magnesium.

How many times have we heard “Whoops, we didn’t know that drug could kill you!” Then why exactly are billions spent on drug research if not to find safe drugs?

I don’t usually comment on movies or TV shows, but just as I was thinking about this blog, I just watched Jennifer Aniston’s movie, Cake. The heroine, Claire struggles to cope with tremendous physical and emotional pain and her addiction to pain medication.

Claire has gone way beyond acetaminophen and uses Percocet, an opium alkaloid combined with acetaminophen, with no relief in sight.

Here’s what I think would help Claire:

1. Start with Epsom salts baths. I had visions of dumping a truck full of Epsom salts into her pool.

2. Then I’d add ReAline to help detox the buildup from all those meds.

3. Next add ReMag.

4. Then ReLyte.

5. But most importantly take RnA Drops to activate Chromosome 14.

According to iON, Chromosome 14 can lead us down a path of addiction when we layer on negative experiences and keep reinforcing them with guilt, fear and anger. However, with RnA Drops you can activate Chromosome 14 to make perfect cells and help overlay positive things that you do want in your life. That may sound bizarre but we’ve had so many testimonials from people with terrible diagnoses like heart failure; cirrhosis of the liver; depression: chronic pain and ankylosing spondylitis whose lives have been turned around. These people claim that the RnA Drops make them happy, release fear and worry and allow them to heal.

Besides the RnA Drops, for Claire’s emotional pain, I would play her the opera called: Time to Say Goodbye to help release her grief. I’d recommend the Bach Flower Remedy, Walnut – the Linkbreaker and have her repeat the following affirmation: I break all links, which hinder my growth. I now have the strength to follow my own inner guidance. I move forward with ease into the next phase of my life.

Of course, the tough and bitter Claire would snap my head off if I suggested this affirmation too soon but as she started to feel better, I’m sure she would embrace them.

Illness is the New Normal

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Tuesday, March 10, 2015
Illness became the New Normal when doctors began using drugs to “prevent” chronic disease; when drugs became the “go to” solution for social anxiety; when drugs began to be used by 70% of the population!

A story from a friend in Berlin encouraged me to write this blog. She’s on the RnA Drops and all the Completement Formulas and would never have a reason to go to a doctor. However, in Germany, businesses have mandated annual physical exams. She has been avoiding them for years and when she could no longer find an excuse not to go she had a very surreal experience. First, the doctor looked at her forms and immediately told her she got her birth year wrong; she couldn’t possibly be 47 years old, she looked too young. Then he proceeded to question her whole file asking her why she wasn’t on any medication and told her it was not normal to be so healthy. He told her that surely she felt tired and ill at some time during the day. He finally said he would be checking up on her to make sure she was telling the truth!

Yes, illness is the new norm. I’ve been hearing for a few years that doctors are quite surprised when patients are not on any medication. Doctors and drug companies keep trying to say that previously normal blood pressure or cholesterol readings are now abnormal and require medication.

How has this been allowed to happen? It’s the “boiling frog” story. The premise is that if a frog is placed in boiling water, it will jump out, but if it is placed in cold water that is slowly heated, it will not perceive the danger and will be cooked to death. Sound familiar?

Take the new eating disorder called Orthorexia nervosa. It’s a newly defined eating disorder or mental disorder characterized by an extreme or excessive preoccupation with avoiding foods perceived to be unhealthy. So, essentially, Illness is the New Normal and Eating Healthy is a Disease! This is a great example of George Orwell’s Newspeak in his book, 1984.

What can I say other than, please Take Control of Your Own Health. If you want guidance I can help you with the media, books, products, resources and programs listed below!
