Invisible Minerals : The Magnesium Pico-Ionic Solution
By Dr. Carolyn Dean M.D., N.D.
Invisible Minerals is the updated version of How to Change Your Life with Magnesium. The book describes magnesium and gives dozens of testimonials about the effectiveness of this miracle magnesium. There are many forms of magnesium but there are forms that are better absorbed than others. Pico-Ionic magnesium is the best absorbed form of magnesium you will ever find.
Magnesium is a necessary cofactor for over 325 enzymes that perform vital metabolic functions in the body. It’s a simple mineral that prevents and treats diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, migraines, heart disease, osteoporosis, anxiety, insomnia, and a dozen other serious health conditions.
I’ve just listed many chronic conditions that people are suffering today, yet has your doctor ever told you to take magnesium? Probably not. That’s because nutrient therapy is not taught in medical school. Magnesium is not regarded as a first-line therapeutic agent in hospitals or doctor’s offices and it’s not a patentable drug. For all these reasons, mainstream medicine remains blind to the extent of magnesium deficiency that is reported to be present in 70-80 percent of the population.
In the past few years physicists have determined that the mineral ion channels that are the gateways through which minerals enter cells are only 400-500 picometers in diameter.
Ion channels are composed of proteins that form pores through a cell membrane. These specialized proteins help establish and control the voltage traveling across the cell membranes by allowing ions to flow along a particular gradient. That may not make a lot of sense to you but these ion channels are crucial components of the membranes that surround all biological cells.
If minerals don’t properly get inside cells, because they are too large, then non-mineralized water floods into the cells and the large-sized minerals stay outside. All forms of edema, including brain edema, are caused by fluid and electrolyte imbalance at the cellular level.
Pico-Ionic minerals are small enough to directly enter into cells bringing the minerals where they are most needed. Inside the cell, minerals are responsible for the 70-90 millivolts of energy that creates intracellular communication. A body can only be as healthy as its cells.
Another important aspect about Pico-Ionic minerals is that people who suffer from IBS-diarrhea, Crohn’s and colitis can use Pico-Ionic magnesium without causing a laxative effect.
Magnesium has a wonderful failsafe mechanism that prevents it from building up in the body – the laxative effect. What’s not absorbed into the bloodstream and into the cells after a dose of magnesium goes through the kidneys into the urine and also through the intestines as loose stool. Some people find that any form of magnesium in pills or powder can cause an immediate laxative effect. This means you can’t get enough magnesium into your blood and cells to effectively fight your magnesium deficiency symptoms before it explodes out the other end!! Even the Pico-Ionic form of magnesium will cause this effect, but only if you take very large doses.

Healthy Kids Cookbook
By Jennifer Hawkins, foreword by Dr. Carolyn Dean M.D., N.D.
Simple ways to boost your child’s immune system with food.
a.k.a. The Anti-Candida diet for kids
For three years my kids kept getting sick no matter what I did. Their pediatrician wanted to put them on steroids for the winter. When I talked with Dr. Carolyn Dean M.D., N.D. she said my kids had yeast overgrowth in their gut, (from overuse of antibiotics) and needed to go on an anti-candida diet. That meant no sugar, wheat, dairy, or yeast! I thought, “How in the world am I going to feed them?”
This book is a compilation of the answers to that question that I learned over the next three years (of almost NO sickness).
This is not a book about learning how to cook, goodness knows I’m not the one to teach anyone that. This is not even a book filled with fancy recipes. Instead, this book is intended to show you the path we took to repair our broken health. The American diet is filled with foods that lower immune system functioning leading to a host of physical issues (See forward), and create obesity. Poor health, due to the “American diet”, is an epidemic that will most likely cripple the health care industry like nothing else. Not to mention lower our quality of life.
This book will give you easy substitutions for the foods that contribute to your child’s (and your) health issues. It will give you ideas you can use to create a diet that’s healthy and right for your family. And finally yes, it will give you some great easy yummy recipes… that my kids like.

Dubbed the multi-tasking mineral, magnesium is a critical but often overlooked nutrient for the prevention of asthma, diabetes, heart disease, insomnia, migraines, osteoporosis, and more. That’s not surprising since magnesium plays a key role in over 325 enzyme reactions in the body—from energy production to cholesterol control. But as important as magnesium is for optimum health, up to 80 percent of Americans suffer from a deficiency. Dr. Carolyn Dean, MD, ND, helps you understand why you may be deficient and how low magnesium levels impact your overall health. She also gives you the tools you need to naturally enhance your body’s magnesium stores through smart supplementation and a magnesium-rich diet.
The Magnesium Miracle – Ballentine 2007
Magnesium is extremely important for good health. Yet for far too many years this vital mineral has been largely overlooked by most doctors. Shockingly, most laboratory blood tests do not even measure magnesium status although magnesium is involved as an essential factor in more aspects of health than any other mineral. Since magnesium status is rarely measured, most doctors don’t know when their patients are deficient in magnesium, even though about 80% of Americans are deficient in this essential mineral. And magnesium deficiency is a significant factor — often the primary factor — in many severe illnesses including heart attacks and other forms of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, anxiety and panic attacks, depression, fatigue, migraines and other headaches, osteoporosis, insomnia, and most cases of muscular problems.
Because magnesium deficiency is largely overlooked, millions of Americans suffer needlessly from the foregoing ailments or are having their symptoms treated with expensive drugs (which often have unpleasant or dangerous side effects) when they could be cured with magnesium supplementation. This excellent and easily-readable new book by Dr. Dean (an up-to-date revision and expansion of her ground-breaking book The Miracle of Magnesium) discusses these and other important aspects of this vital mineral in detail. Everyone who is concerned about his or her health should acquire and read this very important book, even if you already own its earlier version. So should their doctors. And the vast majority of Americans should increase their magnesium intake by suitable diet and appropriate supplementation as Dr. Dean recommends. Those who do will very likely find themselves free of many ailments they may now have.
Purchase : The Magnesium Miracle
Every day I receive emails from readers like you asking me how to integrate magnesium into their lives. Should I take magnesium, will it help me, what type of magnesium should I take, how much should I take, when do I take it, how do I know if I have too much or if I don’t have enough. Even people who’ve read my Magnesium Miracle book still have questions.
I try my best to answer questions from readers but it’s very time consuming and the answers could be voluminous. So, I decided to answer all these questions. I also address a variety of conditions that magnesium can treat; tell some magnesium miracle stories and update The Magnesium Miracle with the latest information on the different types of magnesium available.

Kids’ Health: A Doctor’s Guide for Parents (2010) $4.95
Acknowledging the alarming increase in children’s lifestyle-related illnesses across America, this guide addresses obesity, diabetes, attention deficit disorder, and several other conditions currently interfering with kids’ well-being. The chapters shed light on unhealthy elements such as inadequate exercise, poor nutrition, and environmental toxins, demonstrating how these factors are the root of the problem and how they can be changed. With this simple and straightforward plan for diet and supplements, parents can turn their children’s state around and give them the foundation they need to grow into healthy adults.
This book goes far beyond the statistics of deaths due to drugs. It shows how the allopathic medical monopoly has created a Health Care system that fails to encourage good health, especially by prevention. “Death by Modern Medicine” documents the tales of propaganda, health care bureaucracy, and the focus on profits instead of healing. It shows, statistically, that the number 1 killer in North America, is in fact, one of the most heavily regulated products, services and facilities industry in North America – The Allopathic Medical Industry. In this second edition of Death by Modern Medicine, Dr. Dean points to the future of natural health care and how we can take responsibility for our health and have access to safe organic supplements even in these trying times.

Dr. Dean recognized the work of Dr. William Crook and The Yeast Connection very early in her practice. She treated Candida, had a Candida antibody testing lab, and was on the board of the Candida Foundation for many years. Dr. Dean lectured widely on Candida and the myriad conditions and symptoms it could produce, trigger, and exacerbate. These include chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, arthritis, multiple sclerosis – in fact, most chronic conditions can have an element of Candida overgrowth because the body is in a weakened immune state. www.yeastconnection.com
THE YEAST CONNECTION AND WOMEN’S HEALTH
INTRODUCTION by Dr. Dean
If I told you that there is a living fungus trapped in your intestines that spews out180 chemical toxins capable of shutting down your thyroid, throwing your hormones off balance, causing you to crave sugar and alcohol, all of which make you put on weight, would you believe me? Chances are you absolutely would not. Such a devastating condition should be headline news. Moreover, every high tech research lab in the country should be frantically searching for a cure. Unfortunately, that’s far from the case. But what I’m saying is true, and I’m so convinced about it that it’s the basis for a completely new section in this book. A section that is devoted to weight and the yeast connection.
If you’ve been shuffling from doctor to doctor in search of answers to health problems, including weight gain, that have been plaguing you, perhaps for years, you’ve come to the right place. I don’t have to tell you that not many doctors know about the yeast connection! From the time Dr. William Crook, or “Billy” as his friends knew him, published The Yeast Connection in 1983, he suffered professional ridicule and ostracism for his theories about the connection between candida yeast overgrowth and a wide variety of seemingly unconnected physical ailments. Unfortunately, modern allopathic, or conventional, medicine has abandoned many people who have genuine problems with yeast overgrowth. But doctors like Billy Crook kept bringing hope to thousands of people desperate for answers to their problems.
In my years of conventional medical training, I was taught only that yeast causes vaginitis and, on the opposite extreme, it causes a life threatening blood infection in patients with advanced cancers or AIDS. Fortunately, I studied yeast overgrowth as part of my naturopathic training in the early 1980s after I graduated from medical school. From the time I entered practice, I treated yeast in my patients with remarkable results. Then one day in 1986, I had the honor of being a guest with Dr. Crook on a Canadian television show. During our 90-minute program on yeast, the station tabulated an astounding 80,000 people clamoring to ask questions! After that show, the treatment of yeast occupied an even greater part of my medical practice. By 1991, I had treated more than 2,000 cases of the disease and I began to call yeast overgrowth, Crook’s Candidiasis. I know that it was Dr. Crook’s life’s dream for this condition to be accepted by the medical community and I’m honored to be able to help achieve this.
So what is Crook’s Candidiasis? In the simplest of terms, it encompasses overgrowth of yeast stimulated by excessive intake of sugar and overuse of antibiotics that leads to yeast invading the GI tract and creates leaky gut syndrome; yeast allergy with burning and itching; and widespread reactions due to the toxic yeast byproducts. These terms may not be part of your vocabulary right now, but they will be by the time you’ve finished reading this book.
Crook’s Candidiasis is not new, but the rise of this insidious set of health problems is directly related to the advent of antibiotics about 60 years ago. I’m not trying to say that antibiotics are all bad, but the pervasive use of antibiotics for viruses, for which they are completely ineffective. Also, when they are used to encourage weight gain in livestock they become part of our food supply and help create the current epidemic of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Just take a minute to consider what I just said. It is an industry-wide policy to give antibiotics to livestock because it makes them gain weight. Well, I’m telling you that the same thing happens in humans.
As I will explain in Chapter XX destroying the normal balance of bacterial flora in the intestines and encouraging yeast overgrowth leads to weight gain that’s very difficult to lose -unless you target yeast. In the past 50 years, we have ruthlessly bombarded the delicate ecology of our intestines with drugs that invisibly, but absolutely, encourage Crook’s Candidiasis. Part of turning that tide is to replace those chemicals with natural products and work with diet and natural antifungals to eliminate yeast.
Please enjoy this latest edition of Yeast Connection and Women’s Health, especially the new section on weight. I hope in some small way it helps carry on Dr. Crook’s tremendous work.
