Vitamin D, Magnesium and Our Bones: Free Webinar

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Tuesday, December 7, 2010

The Institute of Medicine’s Food and Nutrition Board decided on November 30, 2010 to drag us back into the dark ages with regard to Vitamin D supplementation. An enormous body of research exists showing that the sunshine vitamin is needed in higher amounts. But all that research was thrown out the window by a “head-in-the-sand” policy that says an infant and a 300-pound pregnant woman both require the same amount of Vitamin D.

To get to the bottom of the Vitamin D controversy, especially how it relates to bone health, join me for a Webinar on Wednesday, December 8th: 7:00-8:00 PM (PST) 10:00-11:00pm (EST). Or find the archive here.

I’m teaming up with Dr. Lani Simpson who is hosting the Webinar. Of course we’ll be talking about my favorite mineral, magnesium and its importance in growing strong bones. Did you know that Vitamin D and magnesium work together. If one is low, you can experience deficiency symptoms in the other! We’ll begin our discussion about Vitamin D this week and continue it in next’s week’s Webinar!

Four hundred eager people have already signed up and are sending in their questions. So, be sure and join us.

Over the past 25 years, Dr. Simpson has established herself as one of the leading experts in women’s health care. Her clinical experience and her multi-disciplinary approach in chiropractic care have enabled her to educate thousands of patients and professionals about some of today’s most common health challenges for women.

On December 8th, she will interview me on the following topics:

• Do you need supplements or are you getting enough from food?
• How much magnesium do we need?
• What is the link to strong bones and magnesium?
• Is the soil depleted of magnesium? What about organically grown produce?
• Can you treat illnesses with magnesium?
• What do the studies show regarding osteoporosis and magnesium?
• If we do use supplements containing magnesium, which form is best?
• What are the side effects of magnesium overdose?
• What about herbal infusions and magnesium?
• Can you take magnesium with calcium, or do they compete with each other?
• What ratio of magnesium to calcium is best?
• What is the best form of magnesium to take: oxide, citrate, or glycinate?
• What delivery is best? Orally or transdermally (through the skin)?
• Are supplement companies testing their gels and sprays to find out if the mg is being absorbed?
• How do you test for magnesium deficiency, and is the testing reliable?
