Athletes & Magnesium Deficiency Diseases

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Saturday, April 15, 2017
The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), in late 2014, convened a task force to address cardiovascular care in the college athletes. The primary focus was sudden cardiac death. The results of the task force were reported in the J Am Coll Cardiol, in 2016.

To me, this publication highlighted what I’ve said all along – athletes are sweating out so much magnesium that they are developing early signs of heart disease, such as high blood pressure and palpitations and they die of seemingly mysterious heart attacks. However, nobody on the task force talked about magnesium deficiency as the cause. They just advised testing, testing, testing and drugs, drugs, drugs.

If athletes survive their college years and are picked up by the NFL, their magnesium deficiency symptoms of pain and inflammation are covered up by an abusive system of drug use. I’ve had professional athletes contact me when their symptoms escalate into anxiety attacks and heart palpitations but their doctors usually force them to take heart medications instead of magnesium.

The abuse of drugs by organized sports came to a head in March 2017 when court documents released to the Washington Post revealed systemic abuse of painkillers and other drugs by NFL teams in violation of federal laws governing prescription drugs. Team doctors plied their players with powerful painkillers and anti-inflammatories each season, according testimony in a federal lawsuit filed by 1,800 former players!

It’s not just the NFL that we have to be concerned about. When NBA star LeBron James was benched because of muscle cramping toward the end of Game 1 of the 2014, NBA Finals, I wrote an expose of how little sports doctors know about sports-induced magnesium deficiency.

And it’s not just college or professional sports. In the Magnesium Miracle, I wrote the following about high school athletes and magnesium deficiency.

“…the coach of a Florida high school football team was concerned about his players’ frequent complaints of leg cramps, so he gave them a calcium supplement on a very hot day before a rigorous game. Early in the second half, eleven players became disoriented and had difficulty walking. Their speech was slurred, they complained of muscle spasms, and they were breathing very deeply. Within an hour, eight of the boys collapsed into full-blown seizures; two had repeated seizures. Those having the worst symptoms had been playing the hardest. Thirteen more players reported headaches, blurred vision, muscle twitching, nausea, and weakness.”

Maybe that why super-athletes demand multimillion dollar contracts because their bodies are burnt out and completely toasted while they are still young.

Athletes by their training schedules, drug intake, and magnesium burn rate qualify as victims of Total Body Meltdown. The only treatment for TBM is my Total Body ReSet!
