Europe Pulling 48 Drugs

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, January 25, 2015
Has offshore drug production and testing finally caught up with us? On Jan 23, 2015, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) recommended pulling four dozen generic drugs because they were approved based on flawed clinical studies conducted in India.

 

I’m familiar with many of the names on the 120-page list: Metformin, Arisept, Lexapro, Nexium, Valsartan/hydrochlorothiazide. These drugs are prescribed for diabetes, Alzheimer’s, depression, GERD, and hypertension – all lifestyle diseases not necessarily amenable to drug intervention. I also recognized many of the biggest companies in the pharmaceutical industry on the list.

A French inspection of GVK Biosciences in India revealed that “data manipulations of electrocardiograms during the conduct of some studies of generic medicines,” occurred for 5 years. They said that the systematic and prolonged nature of these manipulations and the number of staff involved “cast doubt” on the integrity of the trial methodology and the reliability of the data generated.

Drug regulators in France, Germany, Belgium, and Luxembourg immediately took action to stop the sales of 25 drugs. However, the FDA inspected GVK Biosciences in September 2014 after the French inspection in May 2014 but they said they found no evidence “that affects the safety or efficacy of drug products subject to pending applications or products approved in the US.”

About 40 drug applications received by the FDA from 2007 to March 2012 contained GVK clinical data, and some of these applications were approved. The FDA declined to name the drugs in question or say which were approved. Yet, they promised to take “swift and appropriate action” to protect American consumers.” We are still waiting for that swift action.

According to the Boston Globe Business Section, the cost of bringing a new drug to market is an astounding $2.5 billion and can take up to 10 years. So, what’s the point of doing it wrong? Actually, I don’t care to know because it seems like an incredible amount of money to spend on a drug, which, on average, will have 79 side effects and just suppress symptoms. As I noted in my last blog, we are on drug overload; there are 40 drugs to choose from for migraine pain and nothing to “cure” migraines.

While the whole allopathic medical world is distracted with the production of symptom-suppressing drugs, I urge you to look for real solutions. Listen to my Monday radio show at 4pm PST on Achieve Radio where you can learn about my Completement Formulas and Completement Now! Online Wellness Program. Your health is in your own hands.

Therapeutic Levels of Magnesium Treat Migraines

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Thursday, January 22, 2015

The American Headache Society (AHS), January 20 2015 released new Guidelines for the treatment of migraine — the first update since 2000. The paper was authored by two leading headache specialists who disclosed numerous ties to the pharmaceutical industry.

The paper said “The new guidelines will help doctors make the best decisions for the acute treatment of patients with migraine.” However, the guidelines are just a long list of over 40 drugs that doctors have to choose from to treat each patient.

Lord Sufferin’ Cats, how is it humanly possible to learn the efficacy, safety, side effects and interactions of 40 drugs and know what to give to the next patient that steps through your doors? Well, it’s not. And that’s the dilemma of medicine today – there are just too many drugs to choose from and no matter which one you choose, it’s going to have side effects. The average number of side effects of drugs is 79, some drugs go as high as 250. And the focus on all those drugs completely obscures any alternatives.

Happily, magnesium is on the list. But it’s IV magnesium and it’s buried in Level B treatments, presumably to be taken after the first 16 drugs don’t work. Nothing is said about using oral magnesium to prevent migraines in the first place. The paper and the recommendations are just to treat the pain. I was going to include the list of drugs, but you can look them up in the link above.

I’d rather use the space to tell you that MIGRAINES CAN BE TREATED WITH MAGNESIUM. As I say in my book, Magnesium Miracle (2014) “My hero in migraine therapy is Dr. Alexander Mauskop, the founder and director of the New York Headache Center. He has had enough clinical success and published enough papers on treating migraine with magnesium to title his latest paper “Why All Migraine Patients Should Be Treated with Magnesium.”

Dr. Mauskop, a neurologist and headache specialist was a magnesium skeptic before Drs. Burton and Bella Altura (giants in magnesium research) recruited him to study magnesium in his patients. It was not long before he became a convert and is now a magnesium fanatic.

Dr. Mauskaup also created a magnesium product. However, it contains 500mg of aspirin and 75 mg of magnesium oxide. You may have read my reports that magnesium oxide is only 4% absorbed and has a tremendous laxative effect. So, I’m not in agreement with using magnesium oxide for the treatment of migraines.

I’ve asked myself many times why most magnesium studies are done on magnesium oxide and why most magnesium experts still use this highly unabsorbed form. I don’t know the answer but I saw it again last weekend when I attended a magnesium think tank with a dozen of the most famous magnesium researchers in the world. They assume that the laxative effect of magnesium oxide indicates magnesium saturation!

So, ladies and gentlemen, I’m on my own out here in the wilderness. I’m on the leading edge of magnesium therapy telling you to step away from magnesium oxide and the other magnesiums that are only about 20% absorbed. Magnesium therapy is not just about adding a little magnesium to your long list of supplements.  If you want THERAPEUTIC levels of magnesium; if you want to prevent migraine (and a hundred other conditions) – use sufficient amounts of ReMag – the picometer magnesium that is absorbed directly into the cells and does not cause a laxative effect.

NOTE: Unlike other forms of magnesium, with ReMag sufficient levels of magnesium inside cells will begin eliminating excess calcium, heavy metals and toxins, so go slowly. Yes, you want to detox your cells, but you want to do it slowly and safely. If you are aiming for a therapeutic dose of 2-3 tsp (600-900mg), then begin with ¼ tsp in a liter of water and sip it through the day. Increase by another ¼ tsp every 2-3 days.

Find out more about dosage and about following your magnesium levels with a Magnesium RBC blood test in my two free eBooks on minerals under the FAQs at the product website RnA ReSet.

Why Are Doctors In Denial?

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Thursday, January 15, 2015
I’ll quote heavily from an article called “Heart Disease and Lifestyle: Why Are Doctors in Denial?” bemoaning the fact that “In a randomized controlled trial of primary prevention, no cardiologist would want to be compared against a good physical trainer or nutritionist. We would get trounced. Our calcium scores, biomarkers, pills, and procedures would not stand a chance. The study would be terminated early due to obvious superiority of lifestyle coaching over doctoring…”

The writer, a medical doctor, complains that: “I write a post about new oral anticoagulant drugs or statins or AF ablation, and people (doctors) pay attention. You see it in the traffic. It’s the same story at medical meetings: sessions on drugs and procedures draw the crowds. Late-breaking studies rarely involve the role of exercise or eating well. Exercise, diet, and going to bed on time have no corporate backing. The task of drawing attention to the basics is getting harder, not easier.”

The writer takes the words right out of my mouth saying: “I believe the collective denial of lifestyle disease is the reason cardiology is in an innovation rut. This denial is not active or overt. It is indolent and apathetic. Bulging waistlines, thick necks, sagging muscles, and waddling gaits have begun to look like normal.”

He argues that: “Our tricks can no longer overcome eating too much and moving too little. We approach health but never get there. If you waddle, snore at night, and cannot see your toes while standing, how much will a statin or ACE inhibitor or even LCZ696 help?” (LCZ696 is a new two-drug antihypertensive being studied.)

The writer even admits that: “In fact, a reasonable person could make an argument that our pills and procedures might be making patients sicker.”

The doctor, an electrophysiologist, further states that: “My practice is dominated by atrial arrhythmia—a disease now recognized as being due (in large part) to excesses of life, such as obesity, high blood pressure, sleep disorders, and overindulgence in alcohol. In other words: unnecessary. I make hundreds of dollars putting a hundred burns (ablation) in a left atrium for a disease that a poorly paid physical trainer might prevent or treat.” This has become cardiology writ large. But the thing I cannot get over is that I am doctor, not a proceduralist. I am tasked with helping people be well. I fail in that task if I ignore the most effective and safest treatment option. I fail if I take the easy path. The prescription pad is easy. The EP lab is easy…New anticoagulant drugs are easy. Ablation technology is easy. Statins are even easier. The truth—nutrition, exercise, balance in life—is hard.”

The very day I read the above article, while doing a CME (Continuing Medical Education) course about atrial fibrillation one of the doctors said he wanted to make it immediately clear that “First, there is almost nothing we cure in cardiovascular medicine, and AF is not a curable disease.”

Both these doctors agree they are doing nothing for cardiovascular disease but neither make the leap and say how to improve the situation. They are in denial because they didn’t learn anything about preventing disease in medical school. They didn’t learn that Big Agra foods cannot sustain us – so we eat and eat and eat and get fat but we don’t get nourishment. They may admit their drugs aren’t working but they still prescribe them. They give drugs to young people who have magnesium-induced anxiety and make their lives miserable for decades until they find the answer themselves. If they do give prescriptions for magnesium, it’s for the highly unabsorbed magnesium oxide that can actually precipitate IBS in the susceptible.

Medicine is at a crossroads leaving patients in the cross hairs of an uneducated profession that is too arrogant to admit that they have no solutions for chronic disease.

If you know someone who suffers from anxiety or panic attacks, please let them know about magnesium and if they say they have tried magnesium but it upset their stomach, please let them know about ReMag, which is the safest and best absorbed magnesium you can find. Everyone can benefit from the whole Completement Formula package.

Cancer Caused by Bad Luck!!

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, January 9, 2015
A recent study at John Hopkins concluded that “Bad Luck To Be Blamed For Two-Thirds Of Cancers In Adults.”

Lord Sufferin’ Cats, doesn’t that beat all? Doctors are finally admitting that they haven’t got a clue what causes cancer. So why do they think they can keep treating it with toxic chemo and radiation?

Here’s one appalling reason for continuing the travesty. Enterprising doctors have found the perfect scam, they tell everyone that walks in their doors that they have cancer and then make millions treating them with ludicrously expensive chemotherapy. Here’s one such doctor who worked his scam for 15 years at a cost to Medicare of $255 MILLION DOLLARS! And for 15 years, nobody blinked an eye because ‘the doctor knows best.’

Fata is expected to face a maximum sentence of 175 years in prison at his sentencing in February, 2015. But how will that pay back the people who suffered the anguish of a misdiagnosis and the horrible side effects of chemotherapy?

Mike Adams prints a scathing report on this unbelievable story:Cancer Doctor Admits Fabricating False Positives To Profit From Selling Toxic Chemotherapy.

About 10 years ago I began studying Total Biology, an offshoot of German New Medicine. It focuses on the conflict that creates disease. So, in actuality, bad luck may be causing cancer especially when people think their bad luck or conflict represents a problem that can’t be solved. What happens then is the brain puts the problem into the body as a dis-ease to try and help solve the problem.

Many people can’t accept the thought that they are responsible for “creating” their disease but as I said above, the brain and body are trying to find a solution. I was immediately liberated with this knowledge, which to me meant that cancer is not something that appears out of nowhere or attacks for no reason. If your conflict creates it then perhaps addressing the conflict can eliminate it.

Here is the information I have on Total Biology and German New Medicine, which treat the Conflict that Creates Disease to help expand your mind about this condition. I’m not saying this is the cure for your cancer, just that it’s another way of find the cause.

1. Books that share a similar message to Total Biology.

Miscommunicating With Kids

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Thursday, January 8, 2015
The Parenting Teens Summit 2015 for moms and daughters created by Tova Garr runs from January 12 through February 1, 2015. My interview is on January 28. 

 

In this Summit, leading experts reveal how a mother can create easy and effective communication with her daughter in these crazy teenage years, allowing her to become the amazing, successful, and happy woman you know she is meant to be!It’s a free Summit featuring over 21 experts and, no matter what your daughter’s age, I’m sure you will come away with useful tips. After all, most of us never really grow up!

To that end I want to direct you to Bob’s new internet radio show/podcast launching Tuesday, January 13, 2015. It’s called “What ‘Youth’?” on Achieve Radio at 6pm PST. In my interview for the Parenting Summit, I might have said a tiny bit about all the different bodies we juggle: our Chemical/Physical bodies being dominated by our Chip Body (computer and cell phone) and our TV Body. I imagine most of the talks on the Parenting Summit will focus on physical body solutions and psychological solutions. I know I did – telling moms to use a lot of magnesium with their daughters!

But if we recognize the inevitable seduction by the Chip body, we can understand why it’s not just the fact that kids have always thought they know it all and don’t have to listen to adults. Now they have the world at their fingertips and the time to explore it while their beleaguered parents are working day and night to keep them in designer clothes and more and more expensive phones, pods and apps.

What the kids don’t understand is that we are living in a post-fact world – information has no staying power. But the adults don’t know this either, so they don’t have the ammunition to beat their kids in the information game. There are too many answers in the information sphere to establish a conclusion on any issue. Therefore, the new power is in Questions not Answers. 21st Century Man/Woman has been described as running down the street complaining he/she has all the answers but doesn’t know the questions.

On “What ‘Youth’?” Bob will provoke new questions for old answers. In my Death by Modern Medicine 3rd Edition the “Death by Media” chapter deals with our electronic environment that has never existed before. And Bob’s show will give you the perfect perspective to deal with it. So, listen to The Parenting Teens Summit and line up your questions for Bob.

Magnesium in Man & Woman

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Thursday, January 1, 2015
Sometimes I receive “signs” and today I’ll share one with you. On the first day of the 2015 New Year someone sent me a 2015 publication from Physiology Review called “Magnesium in Man: Implications for Health and Disease.”

So, I guess this means 2015 will be another year of mostly magnesium blogs!

What I LOVE about this paper is the corroborating statement that “…magnesium…is involved in over 600 enzymatic reactions.” For over a year I’ve been quoting one source that contends magnesium is responsible for 700-800 enzymatic reactions. But 600 is close enough. Hopefully all the papers and books that have stuck with the 300 enzymatic reactions for the past few decades will update their statistics.

I’ll give you the abstract with my comments. The paper is 45 pages long but it costs $20.00 to look at it for a day. Even so, it’s an important paper you want to give a solid reference to your doctor or to the skeptic that you live with.

Abstract: “Magnesium (Mg2+) is an essential ion to the human body, playing an instrumental role in supporting and sustaining health and life.”

Comment: Mg2 ions are what the body requires at the cellular level. Knowing that, a lot of companies are now selling ionic magnesium. However, an ion is very unstable and will bind with other ions in the body making it unavailable to the cell. The complex and expensive process used to create ReMag stabilizes magnesium and it’s absorbed seamlessly into the cell.

Abstract: “As the second most abundant intracellular cation after potassium, it is involved in over 600 enzymatic reactions including energy metabolism and protein synthesis. Although Mg2+ availability has been proven to be disturbed during several clinical situations, serum Mg2+ values are not generally determined in patients.”

Comment: That’s right, doctors usually don’t even bother to test for magnesium. And this review does not define the various types of magnesium testing or indicate that Magnesium RBC is better than serum magnesium and Ionized Magnesium testing is the best of all.

Abstract: “This review aims to provide an overview of the function of Mg2+ in human health and disease. In short, Mg2+ plays an important physiological role particularly in the brain, heart, and skeletal muscles. Moreover, Mg2+supplementation has been shown to be beneficial in treatment of, among others, preeclampsia, migraine, depression, coronary artery disease, and asthma.

Comment: the list is longer in the paper, but admitting that magnesium is a treatment for depression and asthma is huge.

Abstract: “Over the last decade, several hereditary forms of hypomagnesemia have been deciphered, including mutations in transient receptor potential melastatin type 6 (TRPM6), claudin 16, and cyclin M2 (CNNM2). Recently, mutations in Mg2+ transporter 1 (MagT1) were linked to T-cell deficiency underlining the important role of Mg2+ in cell viability.

Comment: The work on mutations is very interesting because it will soon be accepted that magnesium is a major epigenetic trigger to turn genes on and off.

Abstract: “Moreover, hypomagnesemia can be the consequence of the use of certain types of drugs, such as diuretics, epidermal growth factor receptor inhibitors, calcineurin inhibitors, and proton pump inhibitors.”

Comment: Every year the list of drugs that cause magnesium deficiency grows and contributes to the side effects of drugs.

Abstract: “This review provides an extensive and comprehensive overview of Mg2+ research over the last few decades, focusing on the regulation of Mg2+ homeostasis in the intestine, kidney, and bone and disturbances which may result in hypomagnesemia.

Comment: Researchers can study the regulation of magnesium homeostasis all they want but until they acknowledge that the body needs optimum water intake, sea salt and other minerals, such as the ones in ReLyte, they won’t come up with any worthwhile answers.

In the meantime, my message doesn’t waiver – take responsibility for your own health. Join my Completement Now Online Wellness Program and take Completement Formulas so you can avoid drugs and hospitals in 2015.

An Epidemic of Doctor Suicides

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Tuesday, December 30, 2014
Doctors are dissatisfied, patients a dissatisfied and they are both dying because nobody is paying attention to the cause of their discontent. 

In my Death by Modern Medicine 3rd Edition, I say iatrogenic medicine is causing over a million premature deaths annually. According to Dr. Pamela Wible (that’s pronounced Bible without the B) doctors are opting out of this mayhem by committing suicide.

I associate Bible with Dr. Wible because she’s pretty much a saint in the way she practices “ideal medical care” and mentors other doctors and clinics to do the same.

I’m feeling quite at home reading Dr. Wible’s “Pet Goats and Pap Smears” because her clinic so much resembles the one I ran from 1979-1992.

When a patient complains to Dr. Wible about a surgeon saying: “This guy didn’t listen, never even looked me in the eyes, didn’t act like he even cared! What’s with all these rich, arrogant doctors these days?”

Dr. Wible explains to him that “Physicians are good people who are victimized. They’re overwhelmed and exhausted. It starts in school with dehumanizing and barbaric animal experiments. Everyone in my medical school class had to kill a dog to graduate! Add the sleepless nights on call and the economic stranglehold. Do you realize med students graduate with over $200,000 in student loans? Then, when they graduate they’re funneled into assembly-line clinics. After all the abuse, doctors are emotionally and spiritually disconnected from themselves and their patients. It’s tragic. No wonder we lose a doctor with each day to suicide and sixty percent of doctors want to quit.”

Dr. Wible went to medical school in the mid 90’s I went in the mid 70’s. Thank goodness I wasn’t required to kill a dog in my training – I would have refused, just like Pamela did. I also refused to give chemotherapy, do abortions on women I’d never even met, and pull the plug on patients. I didn’t stage a sit in or go on strike, I just told the nurses not to call me for any of those procedures. I respected the nursing staff and they respected me, so I somehow escaped with my soul intact.

Direct action was how I handled an incident in the first week of first year medicine. A lecturer used nude female slides to keep his mostly male audience awake. The 33 women out of 100 students (and some men) were shocked. I didn’t know anyone in my class so I immediately went out and bought a Playgirl Magazine and had several nude male slides made and put them in that same lecturer’s slide carousel for his next lecture. With the first nude male slide he grabbed his briefcase and ran from the auditorium to great laughter and hilarity. Overnight all the nude female pictures in anatomy labs and all over campus disappeared.

Dr. Wible is right about the doctors graduating with so much debt that they have to immediately go into assembly line medicine and toe the line so they don’t lose their license. I’m sure the figures are closer to $500,000 owing. I had a couple of doctors come to work with me but they all left because they couldn’t make enough money in a practice consisting of extremely complex patients who required 30-60 minute appointments.

The work that Dr. Wible is doing is wonderful and she has developed a following of doctors and clinics. But she has set herself a near-impossible task if, you the public, don’t do your part. To change medicine at this point is like trying to clean up a dirty closet in a very large house. The closet is the inhumane assembly-line of current allopathic health care with all the drugs and surgery and technology that money can buy. The whole house offers the limitless possibilities of offering people ethical and humane alternatives and it’s the whole house that we want to occupy.

Dr. Wible has a tremendous amount of commonsense, and as she told me in private communication, she routinely weans patients off high blood pressure meds and cholesterol meds. Her goal is to remove patients from allopathic drugs and rely on nutrition and lifestyle changes whenever possible.

As Dr. Wible courageously, and with great humor, does her part to improve health care, my message doesn’t waiver – take responsibility for your own health. Join my Completement Now Online Wellness Program and take Completement Formulas so you can avoid drugs and hospitals in 2015.

A Comedy of Medical Errors

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, December 26, 2014
How To Talk To Your Doctor So You Don’t End Up Dead: A Comedy of Medical Errors 

A friend, who I will call Sylvia, needed a medical letter from her psychiatrist to release the pension she has paid into at work for 20 years. He had already filled out her long-term disability forms so she didn’t think the pension form would present a problem; she simply mailed it to him. When the form wasn’t sent in, Sylvia made an appointment with her doctor.

Sylvia: Would you please fill out my pension form.

Doctor: I don’t know your case well enough to fill out this form.

Sylvia: How does this form differ from the long-term disability form you filled out?

Doctor: The pension form has different criteria so I can’t fill it out.

Sylvia: What criteria?

Doctor: They want to know your treatment plan and since you are not willing to take antidepressants and not willing to do a neuropsychiatric evaluation, I’m not obligated to do this paperwork.

Sylvia: But I explained that my health insurance was cut off temporarily so I can’t afford the neuropsychiatric evaluation right now but I will do it as soon as possible. And I’ve never been unwilling to take antidepressants but I thought we both agreed that they wouldn’t be necessary for a traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Doctor: Well, it still boils down to your unwillingness to take antidepressants.

The doctor must have told Sylvia 3-4 times in various ways about her failure to comply with treatment. Then, in her brain-traumatized state and through her tears, she realized he was trying to prompt her to “play the game.” Finally she got the message and said:

Sylvia: May I have a prescription for an antidepressant?

Doctor: Certainly, here it is.

Sylvia said the prescription appeared in her hand so quickly he must have already filled it out. The next day, the doctor mailed her pension form to her company leaving Sylvia numb but happy.

Sylvia was still stunned when I debriefed her. The “game” I told her consists of the doctor having to fulfill bureaucratic requirements and comply with the standard practice of medicine. He couldn’t tell her directly that he had to give her a prescription to fulfill the requirements in case she was ever questioned.

The standard treatment for her condition is antidepressants so, if Sylvia was not on medication, her pension would be denied and his practice could come under scrutiny. It’s becoming more evident that every word on bureaucratic medical forms finds its way into a computer program and Data Collection can pinpoint statistics of who’s on what drug and who prescribed it.

Here is some advice for patients like Sylvia. Most doctors hate filling out forms and writing letters, so, if you have forms for your doctor – ask if you can print in the basic information and just have him/her sign it to save time. You can even offer to write letters for them to edit and sign. When forms are involved, read them carefully. If they are asking about medication, then be aware that you may have to accept a prescription from your doctor.

Then, be sure and fill the prescription because that will be registered in the Cloud! It is up to you whether or not you swallow the pills. When they put GPS chips in the pills, then we will talk about what small animals you will befriend to take some of your pills so they will appear to have been ingested. Oh, sorry, we can’t do that – you could be charged with cruelty to animals!

Sylvia’s story underscores the hi-tech apparatchik (what my husband calls the “Android Meme”) that has overtaken medicine. Drugs and the machines that dispense the drugs are in charge. The medical system is now geared to accumulate statistics, nothing else. Seven-minute appointments ending in a traceable prescription that can be tallied at the end of the day. If people end up getting better in this scenario – that’s not even registered. After all, they don’t really expect people to be cured.

My advice hasn’t changed. Take responsibility for your own health. The resources I recommend are below so that you can make it a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Demon Drugs

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, December 21, 2014
I’ve been troubled recently by two stories that at first seemed unassociated. One terrifying story is of Mexican young people setting themselves on fire to protest the escalating drug wars in their country that have resulted in 43 student-teachers being murdered. The second is about the increasing numbers of doctor suicides as a result of them working helplessly and hopelessly in a drug-based medical system.

Drugs are the backdrop of both stories. The Mexican drug lords apparently supply North America with drugs and they seem unstoppable. In the second story, idealistic doctors who want to help their patients find that the medical system does not support humane interventions. But what they don’t seem to realize is that prescription drugs not only don’t help but may be harming their patients. Job dissatisfaction is too mild a term for what doctors feel when their patients keep coming back with more symptoms and never seem to get better.

I finally exploded about this situation with a rant on my Jan 15, 2014 radio show when I reported on a patient’s encounter with her cancer doctor. She was doing extremely, taking her prescribed medication as well as myCompletement Formulas and working with a Total Biology practitioner. She was so upbeat when she went in for her check up and blood tests that her doctor admonished her for not realizing the gravity of her situation and told her that she would die if she didn’t get serious!

Doctors don’t believe patients when they say they are feeling well and getting better because they just aren’t used to that happening! Whereas, I get emails every day where people tell me that their lives have been “saved” with the Completement Formulas and iON. So, I have very high job satisfaction!

Patients are placed in a precarious situation where their doctors expect them to get sicker and sicker and admonish them when they “claim” to feel better and better. What a crazy twist on the “healing” profession when all you see is disease and death.

I’m sorry I have to burden you with these stories. I do it for the same reason that I wrote Death by Modern Medicine: to make you aware of the absolute need for you to take control of your own health and only use medicine and hospitals when absolutely called for.

As I say in Death by Modern Medicine there are High Points in Medicine such as:

1. Emergency medicine, 2. Surgery, 3. Diagnostics

If we could take advantage of modern allopathic medicine in these three realms, and apply natural medicine to treat and prevent chronic disease, we could start to have a top-notch health care system. Instead we have a disease-case system that rates number 19 on a list of 19 modern countries.

I would be even more frustrated and despondent if I didn’t have my Completement Now! Online Wellness Program and Completement Formulas to offer as partial solutions. To complete the solution I’ll add a recommendation to listen to iON so you, like me, can get happy or get out because, by all accounts, we are in the end times!

Sugar Leads To Addiction

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Tuesday, December 16, 2014
‘Tis the season to eat sugar. I admit that I am a sugar addict. I don’t indulge often, but when I do, I make up for lost time and really go overboard. I barely sleep after I binge because I’m so revved up and I could float away with all the gas in my gut. I can wake up with a headache, a twinge in my low back, achy muscles and I feel decidedly hungover.

Dr. Abram Hoffer, the founder of Orthomolecular Medicine along with Linus Pauling said that “Sugar is an addiction far stronger than what we see with heroin. It is the basic addictive substance from which all other addictions flow. Refined sugar and all refined foods such as polished rice, white flour and the like, are nothing less than legalized poisons.”Who knew that a craving for sweets can lead to other cravings and other addictions like alcohol, cocaine and heroin. That may sound a bit strong but much is made of the fact that Alcoholics Anonymous meetings are synonymous with heavily sweetened coffee and pastries.

Then there is the fact that sugar enhances the growth of yeast/Candida in the intestines. Yeast produces 178 different yeast toxins – alcohol and acetaldehyde (the hangover chemical) are two of the most toxic. So, by eating sugar that feeds intestinal yeast, you have your own still in your gut.

How am I going to work magnesium into this discussion you ask? Well, it turns out that sugar causes magnesium deficiency because 28 molecules of magnesium are required to metabolize one molecule of sucrose (table sugar) and 56 molecules are required to metabolize one molecule of fructose.

And magnesium is a necessary factor for the breakdown of acetaldehyde.

If you don’t have enough magnesium you can develop a mild form of Auto-Brewery Syndrome that may be misdiagnosed as depression or chronic fatigue.

The antidotes to sugar and alcohol are ReMag, Vitamin C and my ReAline. Although I’m not promoting excessive alcohol consumption, I’m getting reports that a few ReAline after drinking does help alcohol liver detoxification.

If you indulge over the holidays, like I know I will, be sure and take extra ReMag and ReAline. I would take 1-2 ReAline for each alcoholic beverage.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A SAFE, HEALTHY NEW YEAR!
