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 my Completement 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!

Mixed Flu Messages

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, December 5, 2014
The CDC’s Influenza FAQ urges that everyone over the age of 6 months receive a flu vaccine but they didn’t check with another branch of the CDC that says “This Year’s Vaccine Doesn’t Work!

 

Here are my recommendations for Colds and Flu from my Future Health Now Encyclopedia.

COLDS AND FLU

In natural medicine we think of colds and flu as the body’s way of eliminating mucus. In Total Biology, they are evidence of resolution of conflict. Therefore it’s no mystery why colds and flu abound around the holidays when lots of people get together who may not want to be together and breed conflict as well as germs.

The mucus builds up due to excessive eating, drinking alcohol, eating junk food, lack of rest, overwork, temperature changes, conflict, worry or climate changes as in the fall and spring. To remedy this, eat wholesome foods and get enough rest. At the onset of seasonal weather changes, take hot and cold showers to acclimatize the skin. Short thirty-second blasts of cold will do.

If a cold or flu begins, don’t fight it and don’t get mad. Take some time off, rest and heal. If you go to work, you bring your germs for others to share. If you take antibiotics unnecessarily, you just put more toxins into your system and the drugs won’t really help because viruses (which are not killed by antibiotics) cause 90% of colds and flu. If anything, drugs suppress the condition and drive it deeper into your system, so it potentially can come back later in a more virulent form. Antibiotics also encourage the overgrowth of yeast, which causes more problems.

Of course, if you have a painful sore throat or a cough, phone your doctor for a throat swab or sputum culture to see if you have a bacterial and not a viral infection. If you must take antibiotics, always eat plain, unsweetened organic yogurt or take probiotic capsules. I recommend Prescript Assist. These replace the good bacteria that the antibiotics kill.

First Aid:

* To prevent germs from spreading to other susceptible people, cover your mouth when coughing, don’t use cloth handkerchiefs and wash your hands before touching other people or their possessions.

* While you are sick, keep your toothbrush in 3% hydrogen peroxide (that you can get from the drug store), then replace or boil your toothbrush when you recover so you won’t reinfect yourself.

* Stop all sugar, dairy and gluten to decrease mucus and don’t eat heavy foods such as meat and fried foods.

* Don’t smoke.

* Take plenty of fruit and vegetable juices and chicken broth.

* If there are no contraindications, use a warm-water enema with the juice of one lemon to pull out toxins.

* Take Epsom salts baths, 2 cups in hot water, to open pores.

* For winter colds wear lots of clothing layers to encourage sweating, wrap a scarf around your throat and wear a hat at all times to avoid the possible loss of 40% of your body heat.

* Use a vaporizer; mucus can collect at night if the air is too dry.

* Do chest clapping to loosen mucus in the chest.

Supplements:

* 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.)

* 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. In the FAQ Section on the ReMag website download the free book on magnesium: Invisible Minerals Part I – Magnesium. Make sure to take enough magnesium to maintain an optimum level of Magnesium RBC at 6.0-6.5mg/dL.

* Zinc: Use 100% absorbed bioavailable ReLyte multiple mineral, which contains zinc and 11 other minerals that all work together synergistically. Dosage: 3/4 tsp three times per day.

* Blue Ice Royal: Fermented Cod Liver Oil and Butter Oil provide balanced doses of Vitamin D, Vitamin A and Vitamin K2. Dosage: 1 capsule twice per day.

* Probiotics: I recommend Prescript Assist. Dosage: Begin with 2 capsules person day for 30 days. Continue with 1-2 capsules per day, 30 minutes away from food.

Herbs:

* Garlic: place a small clove or half a clove of garlic in your mouth and let it sit without chewing through the day and night. Swallow with water when it becomes macerated.

* Sage tea for cough (steep twenty minutes)

* Fenugreek tea for mucus (steep five minutes)

* Ginger grated and boiled, 2 tablespoons in 3 cups of water, gargle and use as a poultice by saturating a hand towel and wrapping around the throat, changing when the poultice becomes cool.

* Use wild oregano oil, garlic or echinacea herbal antibiotics as tincture, tablets or teas at least three times a day

* Mullein and lobelia are for chest congestion, 1/2 teaspoon each in hot water three times a day. These herbs can also be used as a chest poultice for pleurisy, pneumonia or bronchitis.

Homeopathy:

The most common cold remedies are:

* Oscillococcinum is a combination remedy used at the first signs of a cold or flu. Some people use it when they travel, are in crowds or throughout the flu season on a weekly basis. Oscillo has undergone clinical trials for the treatment of colds and flu and is about 70% effective. Considering that flu vaccines are only about 8% effective and have side effects, it is important to have a safe remedy in the medicine cabinet.

* Gelsemium: for colds and flu due to overwork and exhaustion

* Dulcamara: for colds and flu developing at the end of summer and into fall.

* Aconite: can be used for the first signs of a cold or flu.

* Ferrum phos: is also used for the beginning of a cold.

* Kali bich: is used for colds and sinusitis with tough, stringy mucus.

*Hepar sulph. is used for a left-sided sore throat with a cold.

* Pulsatilla: is used for a cold with thick yellow mucus.

Dosage: In all cases you can use the 6X or 12X potency; take one dose every 2 hours the first day, three times a day the second and third day. However, on the first day, if it hasn’t worked by the third dose, switch to another remedy.

GIFT REMINDER: To spread cheer this holiday season, many people are giving the Completement Formulas and The Magnesium Miracle to their loved ones.

Dispensing Drugs on Campus

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, November 23, 2014
As reported in Natural News, Arizona State is the second university to install prescription drug vending machines on campus. Of the 50 drugs being dispensed, antidepressants, antipsychotics, and prescription “speed” top the list.Who exactly benefits from such swift access to these drugs? The students, the doctors, the drug companies? I’m sure the drug companies say it’s for the benefit of students but read carefully this Huffington Post article: “When Doctors Go On Strike Patients Stop Dying”.

The peer-reviewed journal Social Science and Medicine analyzed five physician strikes around the world, between 1976 and 2003 that lasted between 9 days and 17 weeks. Not a single study found that death rates increased during the weeks of the strikes, compared to other times. The death rates either stayed the same or decreased.

When I first noticed the increase in ADHD medication in New York schools I speculated that kids would grow up thinking that taking meds is normal behavior. Sure enough, drugs are so ingrained in the youth culture that drug vending machines are just another convenience like fast food restaurants both of which can be devastating to our health.

I really don’t know want to fight this drug vending machine horror. It would take all my time and energy to mount resistance against Big Pharma. What I can do is report the problem and provide conscious people with safe alternatives. The unconscious majority of the population will happily continue to take their pills until the side effects can no longer be controlled.

Be vigilant and stay conscious about your health and keep questioning the need for drugs or surgery. Every week I get a call or email from a conscious individual who was “talked into” taking a medication that they probably didn’t need and ended up causing them side effects. Doctors can be very persuasive, especially when they think they are right, or they think they know more about your body than you do.

Magnesium for Anxiety Encore

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, November 14, 2014
Trudy Scott’s Anxiety Summit is a resounding success. There is an encore presentation featuring nine of her best guest interviews on Sat Nov 14 through Mon Nov 16. My encore is on Monday Nov 16.Of course I talk about magnesium and how it alleviates anxiety. Several people, including Trudy, discuss the impact of food on mood. Sugar and simple carbs are the biggest triggers for anxiety. You eat sugary foods and your blood sugar quickly rises and falls just as fast. As it drops, the adrenal glands release adrenalin to bring the blood sugar back up. That adrenaline also elevates your pulse and makes you feel anxious. And, if your heart muscle is low in magnesium, you can have heart palpitations. You really don’t know what your blood sugar is doing so you blame your anxiety on stress.

Metabolizing carbs puts a big drain on magnesium. You can read the following statistic in my Magnesium Miracle book: “…28 atoms of magnesium are required to process one molecule of glucose. If you are trying to break down a molecule of fructose, you need 56 atoms of magnesium.” Sugarholics are magnesium deficient.

You may think I just focus on one thing in my talk, but my ReMag and the other Completement Formulas treat many aspects of anxiety. For example, there were interviews about balancing the adrenals and thyroid. I recommend my ReMag and ReLyte and sea salt in water to accomplish hormone balance. Several speakers mentioned the need for liver cleansing, yeast treatment and mercury detoxification. I recommend my ReAline to support liver detox and to help eliminate yeast toxins and heavy metals. RnA Drops alone can help gain detachment from your gramophone thoughts and fears.

I find myself saying over and over – please start your health program by saturating yourself with magnesium first. I was not able to talk about my product on my recent NPR show and there are many questions on the People’s Pharmacy site from people asking what form of magnesium to take. So, in my blogs I make no apologies about recommending ReMag since it’s the most concentrated, best absorbed and most therapeutic magnesium that I have ever found. It along with the other Completement Formulas are changing lives every day.

SUMMITS: Join me on Encore presentation of The Anxiety Summit Nov 15-17.

MEDIA: My NPR Interview on People’s Pharmacy can be downloaded for free for six weeks after the date of broadcast on Nov 10, 2014. After that time, digital downloads may be purchased.

Magnesium Turns On The Will To Live

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Wednesday, November 12, 2014
I would like to thank the hundreds of people from Trudy Scott’s Anxiety Summit who signed up for my newsletter. The Summit hasn’t finished yet, so you can still join.Anxiety is a condition that rarely has outward manifestations as people suffer in silence or suffer in their own homes, afraid to venture outside and risk a panic attack. Today’s blog is about anxiety. It features a very moving testimonial from a woman who overcame her severe anxiety using magnesium.“I would like to add my name to the long list of grateful users of your effective magnesium product – ReMag.

I am a 68-year old female. I had always thought I needed magnesium, but had negative reactions and little improvement with the magnesium supplements available for the last half-century. In a most recent attempt, I tried your ReMag and the initial reaction was leg cramps that kept me up at night. I stopped taking the ReMag and therefore, made zero inroads into all the many symptoms of magnesium deficiency I was experiencing. But I stayed on your emailed newsletter.

Then somewhere you mentioned putting the ReMag in water and sipping throughout the day. This was the trick! First of all, I never took a sufficient amount of ReMag by taking it all at once, so I did not get any positive response. Secondly, taking it all day in water has helped remind me about water consumption (dehydration has always been my default), so I solved two problems at once. Then the real benefits exploded onto my consciousness!

I have lifelong issues caused by multiple TBI’s (traumatic brain injuries) that have nearly totally taken over my brain, mood, cognition, consciousness, relationships, performance, productivity, etc. with its many manifestations including organic depression and the often concurring demon – Anxiety.

I had come to understand the symptoms of anxiety as much worse than those of depression because anxiety is so much more than an inability to get up and do something that might have a positive impact on oneself – this is classic depression. What anxiety does is to put the nail in your coffin in terms of self-healing because anxiety prevents you from ever arriving at the something you could do! Anxiety causes me to wander around at a snail’s pace before sinking back into bed, to never be capable of making a decision about that object in my hand or across the room (glass of water, phone calls to respond to, music button to push, curtains to open up). I remain in an immobilized, indecisive state of total loss of any conscious thinking. Anxiety is totally immune to the influence of your own self-motivating efforts.

As I went through the various approaches to how to maximize my healing, I once again tried ReMag and this time using my new method – drinking the maximum dose throughout the day, and doing it religiously. The Bottom Line is This: My Lifelong Anxiety has nearly completely disappeared.

This single most important discovery trumps all the other wonderful things I have figured out about cancers and diet and supplements because it gave me back my will to live. There is a big difference between having no will to live and having a will to die. Magnesium deficiency and the anxiety it caused in me had created the obsession to die – will to die is exponentially worse than lack of will to live.

I think magnesium turned off the will to die because it removed the faulty wiring caused by my TBI’s, and the evidence is that for the first time in my life, I walk through my day with this veil of anxiety removed – the entire world looks different, my thoughts are totally different, and every day I discover another connection in terms of the many body functions which were impaired or not happening at all, due to functional magnesium deficiency. Its like being color blind to the color red – you can try to explain the color red to this person, but without them actually experiencing “red” they cannot grasp it. Conversely, when the anxiety was gone, many things – moment by moment – happen in my conscious awareness of something that was not there, or being blocked, or was so impaired that I could not experience it enough to understand that body signal trying to alert me to the magnesium deficiency because there is something mysterious and magical and holy about this missing link in my bio-electrical system. Magnesium is a kind of holy medicine that brings my psycho-spiritual health back in ways I did not know I was missing.

I think the method of producing your ReMag is unique enough to make the difference in a very hard-to-treat person with multiple broken systems – me.”

I thank the writer of this statement for her eloquent expression of symptoms that too many people are experiencing these days. I hope her words will motivate you enough to begin taking magnesium and improve your life. The best resource for learning more about magnesium is my ReMag book which is free at RnAReset under the FAQs. I also encourage you to take ReLyte – my multiple mineral product and add sea salt to your drinking water. All that information is in my ReMag and ReLyte books – both free at RnAReSet.

2014 Guidelines For Hypothyroidism

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Thursday, November 6, 2014
I have three major concerns with the current treatment of hypothyroidism and in my world, three wrongs don’t make a right.

  1. Both allopathic and alternative medicine doctors wait until the thyroid is so weakened that their treatment of choice is to use hormone replacement. Allopaths use synthetic thyroid hormone and alternative medicine doctors and their patients fight for the right to use natural hormones. Both approaches are lacking.
  2. Allopathic doctors know nothing about the mineral treatment of the thyroid. Alternative medicine doctors focus on using iodine and some use selenium and forget about the other 7 minerals required for proper thyroid function.
  3. Even if alternative medicine doctors use minerals they go by inaccurate hair analysis tests and do not choose minerals that are 100% absorbed at the cellular level so their results are inconsistent and mostly ineffective.

Now, at a point in time when levothyroxine (Synthroid) is THE top selling drug in the US, at 22.6 million prescriptions annually, the 2014 Guidelines for the Treatment of Hypothyroidism by the American Thyroid Association Task Force on Thyroid Hormone Replacement is consolidating the monopoly on thyroid treatment.

Here is the Task Force’s recommendation: “We concluded that levothyroxine should remain the standard of care for treating hypothyroidism. We found no consistently strong evidence for the superiority of alternative preparations (levothyroxine-liothyronine combination therapy or thyroid extract therapy, or others) over monotherapy with levothyroxine, in improving health outcomes.” Levothyroxine is synthetic T4, liothyronine is synthetic T3.

It took the committee 207 pages to justify why they would not make any changes in how hypothyroidism has been treated for decades. They did take the time, however to put down natural thyroid hormone replacement. Of course no mention was made of using minerals to support the function of the thyroid.

Medicine is becoming increasingly standardized and the major concern with these strict guidelines to only use Synthroid may result in doctor’s not being allowed to prescribe anything else. You notice how they used the term “standard of care” in their conclusion. Insurance companies could conceivably not cover the costs for a doctor’s appointment that results in a prescription other than Synthroid.

Synthroid may be called “hormone replacement” which makes it sound benign but there are many side effects of Synthroid that are attributed to taking too much. However, those side effects may also be because of just using T4 hormone and no T3 hormone. Or maybe we do need the T1 and T2 components that researches say we don’t.

The side effects of Synthroid include fatigue, increased appetite, weight loss heat intolerance, fever, excessive sweating, headache, hyperactivity, nervousness, anxiety, irritability, emotionality, insomnia, tremors muscle weakness, palpitations, tachycardia, arrhythmias, increased pulse and blood pressure, heart failure, angina, myocardial infarction, cardiac arrest, dyspnea, diarrhea, vomiting abdominal cramps, elevation of liver function tests, hair loss, flushing, decreased bone mineral density, menstrual irregularities, impaired fertility and seizures (rarely).

Here is my guideline for hypothyroidism, which I write about in my free ReLyte Book: “In my experience, most low thyroid conditions are caused by mineral deficiency. Treating with ReLyte, you have the nine minerals necessary for the creation, conversion, activation and transport of thyroid hormones: These include: iodine, selenium, zinc, molybdenum, boron, copper, chromium, manganese and magnesium.” ReLyte minerals are picometer in size and 100% absorbed at the celluar level making them an effective therapy.

When you take well-absorbed minerals like ReLyte, you have to be aware that your thyroid can start functioning “normally” and you may not need your thyroid medications. I wish I could tell you that your doctor will help you wean off your medications, but I don’t think doctors learn how to do that in medical school anymore. Doctors seem to think that once you are on a medication, you are on it for life. I’m from the “old school” where we were taught to use medications for as short a time as possible until the body resumed its ability to take care of itself.

In my case, after about five or six weeks of taking ReLyte, I began to feel a bit “sped up” and my pulse was slightly elevated. I was aware that those symptoms can be due to too much thyroid hormone. Since I was on Armour thyroid I decided to stop taking it. Within a couple of days my thyroid hormones settled down and I felt great and continue to feel great months later.

Magnesium for Stress, Diabetes, Gastroparesis and Leg Cramps

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Saturday, November 1, 2014
People are lining up with their in depth testimonials to inspire and validate the miracle of magnesium. Here is an amazing testimonial from a woman who listens to my radio show. She tells her story below and my comments are in brackets and below. 

Hello Dr. Dean,

I talked to you on your talk radio show about three weeks ago. I was the 52 y/o female with Insulin Dependent Diabetes since age two. Both my husband and I started your ReMag about four weeks ago and what an improvement in both of us. It’s interesting though because it has affected us in very different ways. My husband is much more relaxed and calm. He also had severe leg cramps, especially at night and he’s had more energy in the past 10 days than the past 10 years. The ReMag has helped him considerably.

My teeth grinding stopped after 2 weeks on ReMag; my dentist wanted to give me a bite guard! Because of the diabetes, I was diagnosed with gastroparesis about seven years ago and my slow digestion is a complete nightmare. (Gastroparesis is a condition where the muscles in the wall of your stomach work poorly or not at all. This prevents the stomach from emptying properly.)

If I ate a medium sized dinner at 6pm, it would not finish digesting until 7-8am the next morning. This very slow digestion means my blood sugars cannot be controlled over a 12-14 hour time span accurately. Now for some reason, and I don’t understand the physiology behind this, but the digestion seems to have picked up significantly after about two weeks of taking the ReMag. I am still baffled by this but it’s the only thing in my life that has changed.

(Magnesium wakes up so many things in the body that it would be hard to say exactly what’s happening. It could be because magnesium increases the level of HCL in the stomach. Also, ReMag will dump more calcium from cells than other magnesium products and the stomach could have been a bit calcified and interfering with the muscular action of the stomach. We find a similar situation in the elderly with bladder leaking – as the bladder gets “less calcified” the leaking stops!)

I also had almost complete contraction of my back muscles from the waist up to my head due to stress. It happened so slowly that I didn’t notice. The tetany happened over a year and a half time frame so it was very slow and unnoticed. When I read your Invisible Mineral Part I eBook about magnesium it occurred to me that I may be very depleted and should doing something about it.

To make matters worse, I had taken a lot of calcium, about 1000-1500mg every day for probably 10 years but had stopped about four years ago upon doing a hair analysis that came back that I was at 400% calcium and all my other minerals were just about nonexistent. It was then I started taking a capsule form of magnesium that had magnesium stearate in it, probably not so good for the body. I took it on and off for a couple of years to detox my body of the calcium. The last hair analysis that I had done two years ago showed that I was down to 150% of the calcium. An improvement but not perfect. The muscles for the most part are good or much better now with the ReMag, still a slight problem in the neck area-TMJ area but completely gone in the back.

I love the ReMag, it has helped on many fronts with both myself and my husband and very differently in both of us. Both my husband and I are on 1 tsp twice a day for now and may remain on this dosage. Me because of the IDDM and him because he’s a constant worrier and it definitely calms him and slows the worrying process down and has 80-90% taken care of the muscle spasms in his legs.

We also stopped taking Vitamin D3 and I took my husband off Red Yeast Rice. I can’t wait to see what his cholesterol values will be once he’s been on ReMag for a while.

Thank you so much for making the “perfect” Magnesium!!!!!

Since this person is not a client of mine I replied to her with the following FAQ. Also I told her that 2 tsp of magnesium may not be enough if someone has a chronic disease (like diabetes); has taken calcium for years and likely has calcified tissues; and is on medications. All of these situations call for more magnesium. The beauty of ReMag is that you can get therapeutic doses of magnesium without the laxative effect. To check magnesium saturation get a Magnesium RBC blood test. You can read about the Magnesium RBC test in the Invisible Minerals Part I free eBook.

COMPLETEMENT FORMULAS GUIDELINES
1 BE SURE YOUR BODY IS PROPERLY HYDRATED AT ALL TIMES.

You can begin hydrating your body by increasing water intake and adding high quality sea salt. Water Intake Guidelines: ½ your body weight (in pounds) in ounces of water. If you weigh 150 lbs you will drink 75 ounces. Sea salt – 1/4-1/2 tsp of sea salt in every quart of drinking water – to one of those bottles add you ReMag and ReLyte.

2. Dosing ReMag: Start with a low dose of ReMag if you feel you are toxic. Begin with ¼ tsp per day. If you are a veteran magnesium-taker, you can begin with ½ tsp a day and every two days add another ½ tsp. Put ReMag and ReLyte together in a bottle of water and sip through the day. Work your way up to between 2- 3 tsp a day depending on how you feel and your Magnesium RBC results.

3. Dosing ReLyte: You can begin with ¼ tsp a day and increase by ¼ tsp every 2 days. Final dosage is 2 tsp a day. ReLyte contains several minerals that support the thyroid: Iodine, Selenium, Zinc, Molybdenum, Copper and Magnesium. When you take ReLyte it can “wake up” your thyroid and improve your metabolism. But be aware that if you are on thyroid medication, you may find yourself a bit hyperactive because you no longer need as much thyroid medication as you are taking. Be sure and check with your doctor about reducing your medication.

4. You can follow your magnesium saturation with a blood test that you can order online. Go to Request A Test, type in Magnesium RBC, pay $49.00 and they will send you to a nearby lab to have your blood drawn. The optimum level of your Magnesium RBC test should be 6.0-6.5mg/dL.

5. If you require Magnesium for topical use or as a replacement for magnesium oil – use it as follows:

ReMag Spray Facts

1 ml = 8 sprays

5 mls in a tsp

1.25 ml in a ¼ tsp = 11 sprays

11 sprays 4 times a day would be a good dosage to start with.

ReMag can be sprayed anywhere face –arms, legs, belly, back.

ReMag Spray Protocol

Dosing ReMag for local injury, arthritis, muscle pain or joint pain.

You can put ReMag full strength in a spray bottle.

Spray ReMag lightly and don’t rub in, just let it sit and dry.

After a few minutes, spray again and do that 4-5 times and let the layers build.

Do this 2-3 times a day for painful injuries to help heal deep tissues.

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!
