Con-Clue-Shuns of Science

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Thursday, February 9, 2012

Anyone who reads health blogs must already know that science is often not our best friend.

And it never said it was.

Science adopted the Null Hypothesis back in the 1930’s. Basically, science formulates and tests hypothesis to prove them false, i.e., null. Therefore, a null hypothesis means you can Never prove something is True. A set of data from a scientific study can only reject an hypothesis or fail to reject it.

Thus, by definition, the conclusions of science are never positive in the sense of giving us answers. Science doesn’t have answers; it just has more questions. That’s why I read at the end of most studies that “more research must be done to come to any conclusions”. It’s also a great way to ensure that the funding never stops.

That why much of science is a Con, that Shuns the many Clues that are, in fact, uncovered by science.

For example, take the following excerpt from Suzy Cohen’s book Drug Muggers. 14 Classes of Drugs that Deplete Your Body of Magnesium shows that almost 100 drugs make you lose this precious mineral.

Scientists and researchers came up with this information…yet where are the headlines announcing the conclusion that many drugs deplete you of your most important mineral?

NADA

Other research shows that most of the conditions that are treated with these magnesium-depleting drugs can actually be treated by using magnesium.

So, let’s get this straight. Science is not going to give you the conclusions you need to lead a healthy life. You have to draw your own conclusions from your own research and your own experience and reading between the lines…or from reading my books and blogs!

As always, I suggest you and your family and your friends start by experimenting with magnesium…and prove it’s amazing effects for yourself.

Try to get 400-800 mg of magnesium from food or supplements. Here are some common food sources of magnesium. But be aware that the soil foods grow in has to contain magnesium in order for these numbers to have any meaning. In other words, we really don’t know how much magnesium is in the foods we eat. But if your magnesium deficiency symptoms go away when you eat a lot of these foods, you are obviously on the right track.

1 ounce pumpkin seeds: 151.9 mg
1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds: 127.4 mg
1 cup cooked millet: 105.6 mg
3 ounces chinook salmon, baked or broiled: 103.8 mg
1/2 cup bran cereal: 93.1 mg
1/3 cup wheat germ: 90.9 mg
3 ounces halibut: 90.0 mg
1/2 cup cooked quinoa: 89.3 mg
1 cup spinach spaghetti: 86.6 mg
1 cup cooked brown rice: 86.0 mg
1/2 cup boiled Chinese long beans: 84.3 mg
1 ounce dry roasted almonds: 80.0 mg
1/2 cup frozen spinach, cooked and drained: 78 mg
1/3 cup tofu: 76.1 mg
1 ounce dry roasted cashews: 75.0 mg
1/2 cup cooked soybeans: 75.0 mg
1/2 cup cooked spinach: 75.0 mg
1/2 cup boiled Swiss chard: 75.3 mg
1/2 cup cooked black beans: 60.2 mg
1 cup fortified instant oatmeal, prepared with water: 55.0 mg
1 medium baked potato, with skin: 50.0 mg
2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter: 50.0 mg
1/2 cup cooked navy beans: 47.0 mg
1 cup nonfat plain yogurt: 45.0 mg
1/2 cup vegetarian baked beans: 40.0 mg

Thyroid Confusion

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Monday, February 6, 2012

Currently there is an epidemic of hypothyroidism that most doctors can’t properly diagnose because blood tests aren’t accurate enough. The most common cause of primary hypothyroidism is Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. This is an autoimmune condition in which the body’s immune system attacks its own thyroid cells. This condition is proven by finding thyroid antibodies in the blood.

Allopathic—or as I like to call it—allopathetic medicine thinks that’s the end of the story. If you have thyroid antibodies, therefore you have Hashimoto’s and hypothyroidism. The standard treatment is synthetic thyroid hormone replacement and that’s that.

But the question arises, from inquiring minds that actually use their brains for thinking. What causes the body to attack the thyroid gland? Allopathetic medicine says the cause is unknown.

A relatively unknown cause that I ascribe to is the cross reactivity of candida yeast toxins with thyroid tissue. Yes, it’s possible that an overgrowth of yeast is blocking your thyroid receptors. Read my article, Yeast and Inflammation to understand more about this condition.

I decided to write this blog because recently a well-known nutritionist, Donna Gates, leapt into the thyroid fray in a recent blog: Don’t Make These 2 Common Mistakes with Your Thyroid!

Donna says you shouldn’t supplement with iodine, which is also the allopathetic approach.

For a rebuttal, I went to my friend Dr. Roby Mitchell, who says “Most practitioners are operating from “conventional wisdom” paradigms. Conventional wisdom is misinformation that continues to be perpetuated simply because it continues to get repeated by so called experts. The typical mistake with iodine supplementation is the shallow understanding that its only role is as a substrate for the formation of thyroid hormone. Not so. Every cell in the body needs iodine and iodide is also required to prevent attack from the sea of microbes they are surrounded by. Our bodies are saturated by 10 times more germs than human cells. Iodine supplementation serves the same purpose in the body that its chemical cousin chlorine does in a swimming pool or municipal water supply; it prevents germ overgrowth. Therefore, much more iodide is needed than just for thyroid hormone formation.”

I used to order 24-hr urine tests for iodine on many of my clients. There was not one person who had sufficient iodine in their body. Now I recommend low dose iodine supplementation in the form of Nascent Iodine for most of my clients. See my blog Taking Iodine For Your Thyroid.

Donna also says people are mistaken when they think that thyroid hormone replacement can fix hypothyroidism. And in this instance she is right. She recommends healing the underlying causes of an autoimmune condition by avoiding sugar, grains and processed oils. Which is essentially how I begin to treat thyroid disease.

So, the take home message for thyroid disease is:

1. Read the best overview of thyroid disease, Dr. Mark Starr’s book, Hypothyroidism Type 2: The Epidemic
2. Include Free T3, Free T4, TSH and thyroid antibodies in thyroid tests.
3. Go on a yeast free diet.
4. Take low dose iodine for your whole body, not just your thyroid.

Magnesium and Whales

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Thursday, February 2, 2012

Perhaps you think I’m joking. Not at all. Whales are constantly immersed in seawater which contains 1300 ppm, second only to sodium at 11,000ppm. By the way, calcium is only present in 400ppm. That’s one of the many reasons why I would like people to take more magnesium than calcium.

But I stared this post to tell you about my whale watching adventure last week with Blue Water Rafting in a very tiny boat holding about 18 people, including my friend Kelly. The whales were everywhere, beside us, around us and under us in great pods of males fighting for the attention of several females. In retrospect it was probably scary but I was too excited to notice.

However, when I went for a swim later that day, both my feet cramped up. For me, a sure sign of magnesium deficiency. Then I realized that the stress of my morning adventure had burned up my magnesium. So, just a heads up for you folks who are under stress that you may want to stock up on magnesium.

Here are some recent magnesium miracles I want to share with you.

1. A manager of a big natural products store said that he had personally watched three fellow employees get off a lifetime of medications merely by addressing their magnesium deficiency using Natural Calm.

2. On Facebook, someone gave a testimonial about magnesium and specifically Natural Clam. “I love Calm because I have Lyme Disease, which causes magnesium depletion, and it has helped me to manage my symptoms such as heart palpitations and muscle spasms. I agree with another comment that was left about how I can notice a difference very soon after taking it. Last night my father-in-law, who just had surgery to remove his kidney due to cancer, went in to tachycardia. My husband gave him some calm and within 2 minutes his heart was back to normal.”

3. A woman wrote that she had a migraine for 4 days, and took every pill she could get her hands on. Nothing was working… then she went into work and a coworker suggested she try Natural Calm. She went to the health food store, bought the raspberry lemon flavor, and within 45 minutes of drinking it, her migraine was GONE! Needless to say, she was very impressed.

4. And here’s a very interesting testimonial from a woman with nerve pain.
“The other night, while I was sleeping, my inside ankle bone began having electric shocks, strong enough to wake me up and keep me up all night. I kept trying to change my position, but nothing helped. I put Blue Stuff on, nothing, then DMSO, nothing. I just kept shocking all the next day when I had an appointment with my Naprapath and he couldn’t figure out what was causing it. He even tried cold laser…nothing helped. Later that evening I decided to try magnesium oil. I sprayed some on, rubbed it in. I had a few more twinges that got lighter and lighter, then it stopped altogether. It’s been 3 days now. Miraculous Magnesium. I am still walking around with my little spray bottle of magnesium oil, just in case.”

About the Button contest…More people chose the Green button and those who chose the White often said that it was easier to read than the Green. So, I alerted OrganizedWisdom.com and told them to sharpen up their images. Until they do, I’ll just keep both buttons on my blogs! Cause I can!!

Organize Your Wisdom

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Tuesday, January 31, 2012

I know I just did a post yesterday and I don’t like to overload you with emails but today I’m excited because I’ve just got a new button to put on my blogs. Actually, I’m more excited because I figured out how to use it! The button is from a new website called Organized Wisdom where I’m able to display my Health Library which has about 200 resources listed so far.

Now, here’s where I want your help. Below you will see two buttons from Organized Wisdom. One with a green background and one with a white background and I want to know which one you like best. I can’t decide.

Also, I want to introduce you to a new friend, Morley Robbins, who is a magnesium fan/atic! He was a hospital executive for over 30 years and he’s repenting now and will be doing payback for the next 30 years.

Morley learned how to make people sick and he’s going to let you in on the secret to a short lifespan in this article Let’s Get Sick in 10 Easy Steps. Yes, Morley is an unlicensed comedian and knows that “when you’re laughin’ you’re learnin’. Morley is a certified Magnesium Man and starts his article with a quote “Without enough Magnesium, cells simply don’t work.”

You can find out more about Morley at Nexus Whole Health in Evanston, Ilinois.

I’ll be meeting up with him at the Long Beach, Health Freedom Expo, March 2-4, 2012 where we are both speaking. By some miracle, Morley nabbed the magnesium lecture and my lecture is titled: Death by Modern Medicine: Detox and Rejuvenate Instead!

More Media: One of my 29 books is called 365 Ways to Boost Your Brain Power. It’s a great list of choices you have for a better brain. My friend, Dr. Don Wagner has interviewed me several times and the latest was on Jan 27th when we delved into Brain Boosters.

Curing the Autism Stats

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Monday, January 30, 2012

Allopathic medicine has finally found a cure for Austim! Read and Weep!

No, it’s not what we’d hoped for. Instead, the American Psychiatric Association is introducing a new definition for Autism that will eliminate many cases overnight.

This new definition will downplay the stats of 1 in 100 kids suffering Autism but it definitely won’t cure the condition. Also troubling is that many people will no longer qualify for special assistance programs that have been developed for Autism and which parents have fought long and hard for.

Of course, my question is, why spend all this time and money redefining the condition? Why not start treating it with therapies that work.

Whether Autism is caused, triggered or worsened by antibiotics, vaccines, junk food diet, toxicity and stress, the following is a short summary of remedies that work to alleviate this condition.

1. Avoid sugar, wheat, dairy.
2. Detox with clay and magnesium baths.
3. Take supplements, Kids Calm Multi is especially formulated for autism and ADHD.
4. Exercise daily.
5. Use EFT tapping for emotional release.

You can see my recommendations below and you can read more in Autism Can Be Treated, a paper that I co-wrote.

MEDIA:

Magnesium for Asthma: Canine and Human

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Wednesday, January 25, 2012

In my book, The Magnesium Miracle, I wrote about the following six reasons why magnesium is important in the treatment of asthma:

1. Research shows that many patients with asthma and other bronchial diseases have low magnesium.

2. Both histamine production and bronchial spasms increase with magnesium deficiency.

3. Many drugs used in the treatment of asthma cause a loss of magnesium, only making symptoms worse.

4. Magnesium is an environmental detoxifier reducing the triggers for asthma.

5. Magnesium relieves stress to alleviate the emotional triggers for asthma.

6. Patients treated with simple magnesium supplementation report marked improvement in their symptoms.

I wanted to write a blog about asthma and magnesium because I received this report on magnesium oil being used for asthma in a dog.

The dog owner said that she’d read that asthma is caused by a magnesium deficiency. Since her dog has asthma attacks she decided to start spraying magnesium oil on the dog’s belly and it worked. It prevented attacks and it also stopped an attack if she applied it as soon as one occurred. She said the best way to apply the magnesium is to spray it on your hand or a cotton ball and rub it on the dog’s skin keeping it from running into the private parts. The magnesium is salty and oily so it can be irritating and in that case would need to be diluted with water.

When I first wrote The Magnesium Miracle, I realized that many people can’t take oral magnesium because of the laxative effect. Therefore I began advising people to put supersaturated magnesium chloride—called magnesium oil on their skin to bypass the intestines. It also stimulates DHEA production that occurs in the skin. And it can be used it in baths and foot baths for muscle aches, joint pain, and foot pain and neuropathy.

You can dilute the magnesium oil 50:50 with distilled water or coconut oil and apply 1-2 tsp on your skin every day. Or you can apply full strength magnesium oil all over your body and leave on for at least 30 minutes, then shower off because it gets itchy when it dries. One ounce of oil is a sufficient amount to put in a bath. I use LL’s Magnesium Oil.

How much magnesium are you getting with magnesium oil? According to some manufacturers the amount of magnesium chloride per teaspoon is about 2,500 mg. However, that’s not the amount of magnesium or the amount that will be absorbed. There is 60mg of magnesium in 500 mg of magnesium chloride. Therefore the amount of magnesium in a tsp is about 300 mg, which is a normal dose of oral magnesium.

You have many choices when it comes to magnesium. I use all of them at one time or another: Natural Calm magnesium powder, magnesium oil, magnesium flakes and angstrom magnesium. I’m off to have my magnesium flakes and clay bath right now!

MEDIA: On Natural News you can listen to my interview about ADHD (and much more) on the Jan 24, 2012, Robert Scott Bell show.

Keep Kids off Drugs

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Saturday, January 21, 2012

I spent the morning at the Swap Meet (farmer’s market) in Kahului with my friend, Barbara-Ann (the best masseuse in the world) where we were blitzing everyone with our bubble gun. Everyone loves bubbles, especially kids. So, I came home ready to do a blog dedicated to our most precious resource.

A recent Medscape article talks about “the short supply of drugs used to treat ADHD, including certain brands and dosages of dextroamphetamine with amphetamine (Adderall, Shire PLC) and methylphenidate (Ritalin, Novartis).”

Apparently doctors and parents are outraged that the DEA is controlling the amount of amphetamines their children are getting. Personally, I think the drug companies are causing this shortage in order to get the doctors and parents to force the DEA to allow more speed to be used on kids.

But why are we drugging kids in the first place?

This week, Abby Nelson sent me her article called, 10 Common Medications your Child Should Never Take. It’s a very thorough piece explaining the side effects of medications commonly given to kids.

Let’s get this straight; our kids are not suffering from an amphetamine deficiency or any other drug deficiency! They are suffering nutrient deficiencies. And simple nutritional formulas treat them every bit as well as drugs…and without the added side effects of stunting their growth and the potential of turning them into drug addicts.

But why medicate when you can give your child safe supplements? My overall supplement recommendation is Kids Calm Multi. It’s a liquid supplement by Natural Vitality that contains organic fruits and vegetables, DHA, EPA, amino acids along with A, B, C, D, magnesium, zinc and calcium. You can get it at a deep discount at my favorite online retailer VitaCost.com.

I’m a big supporter of Natural Vitality and highly recommend their environmentally aware online magazine Organic Connections. This month’s issue features a 14-year old beekeeper, chicken farmer, and sustainable-food advocate, Orren Fox. This young man is a true testament to the immense benefits of natural living.

To learn more about safe and effective natural remedies, read my booklets, Kids Health: A Doctor’s Guide for Parents and Homeopathic Remedies for Children’s Common Ailments and my article on Natural News, Homeopathy for Children’s Emotional Health.

If you feel your child is toxic from vaccines and junk food, you can offer soothing baths in detoxifying clay and magnesium. I recommend the Natural Clay and Magnesium Flakes at LL’s Magnetic Clay. Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) may be a substitute but I’ve had parents who have tested different brands and found they contained measurable levels of mercury. So, I can’t recommend Epsom salts for kids.

Of course, I should mention diet. It’s important to limit your child’s intake of sugar and rotate wheat and dairy so that they don’t eat these foods every day. Encourage them to eat vegetables and fruits and stay away from processed and fried foods. A client of mine who took my advice and turned her kids health around is writing a recipe book. I’ll let you know when it’s available.

Why Wait for Weight Loss?

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Tuesday, January 17, 2012

Join me tonight, 8pm EST for the launch of Kathi Casey’s new teleseminar series, “Permanent Weight Loss IS Possible!” It’s free and it will be fun and informative.

In tonight’s seminar, I’ll be explaining how toxins, like excess stress hormones for example, make it more difficult for our bodies to lose the fat we are trying to get rid of, and how we can detox easily and quickly.

In Today’s Blog, Kathi shared a link to a TV show I did about yeast overgrowth with Dr. Becker. But tonight I’ll be focusing on how yeast can lead to inflammatory weight gain.

Here are three of Kathi’s weight loss tips to wet your appetite for more!

“1. Drink more green tea. Green tea leaves aren’t fermented like black, so they contain the highest concentration of catechins (powerful antioxidants). Studies have shown that drinking several cups of green tea a day can lower “bad” (LDL) cholesterol and promote weight loss!

2. Plan your grocery shopping! We really need to get back to the days of making a list with the entire week in mind, including bringing your own lunch to work! That’s how my parents shopped when I was a kid. There was no stopping for take-out on a rushed day back then. We know our schedule and can plan ahead so that on busy days we toss dinner in a slow cooker before we leave in the morning, or make double lasagna one week and freeze half for our busy day next week. It only takes a little planning to cut out a huge amount of extra fat, calories, and cost from our weekly meal plans! And don’t forget to bring your reusable shopping bags to the grocery store…

3. Smoothies are a great all natural treat! Keep a bowl of fruit on the kitchen table or counter with the blender right next to it. Teach everyone in the family how to make nutritious and tasty smoothies at home and start a healthy new family routine.”

People from all over the world have already signed up for “Permanent Weight Loss IS Possible!” Join us and you can send in your own questions for the Q&A section of the seminar. And, as an extra bonus, you can purchase my Completement Now! Online Wellness Program for half price!

It’s your choice. You can buy Kathi Casey’s book, Get Off The Couch, Potato! or Dr. Mercola $5,699 machine that will shake your belly fat off!

Here’s where I say, “Lord Suffering Cats! Is that any choice at all?”

Perhaps this machine is made of gold?

And what does it do? It SHAKES OFF BELLY FAT. How gullible are we to spend all our hard-earned money on something you should be able to do by running around the block a few times a week? Or maybe “the placebo effect” of spending all that money will make it work!

Instead of a belly-shaking machine, I recommend following Kathi’s month-long fitness program outlined in Get Off The Couch, Potato! where she coaches you on how to improve your lifestyle in order to attain all-round health, while losing weight.

On Tuesday, January 17, 2012, I help Kathi kick off a teleseminar series that is part of the swag-bag of gifts you receive when you purchase her book.

Kathi’s Get Off the Couch, Potato! book is not only fun and funny but it’s the perfect solution for over-worked parents, television-addicted teens, out-of-shape Baby Boomers, and more. Her book will make you laugh and provide you with many tips and tools so you can take charge of your own health.

Her bonus gifts are from today’s leaders in self-help, mind body spirit, and social media. So, order your copy of Kathi Casey’s book “Get Off the Couch, Potato!” today!

Besides doing the teleseminar, I’m also giving away my How to Change Your Life With Magnesium ebook, as well as a special $97.00 offer on my $240.00 Completement Now! 2-year wellness program.

So, get off the couch and join.

Get Off The Couch, Potato!

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Monday, January 9, 2012

My friend Kathi Casey, the Baby Boomer Coach, has produced a fun book called Get Off The Couch, Potato! and I’m part of the bonus package that comes when you purchase the book. The book launches tomorrow, January 10, 2012 and I kick off a month long seminar series with Kathi on January 17.

Kathi’s book offers a 30-day fitness plan as the perfect solution for over-worked parents, television-addicted teens, out of shape Baby Boomers, and more. Already a classic, this little book will make you laugh and provide you with many tips and tools so you can take charge of your own health care – regardless of what Congress does!

Kathi includes everything you need for dropping that Holiday weight gain fast, along with hundreds of bonuses from today’s leaders in self help, mind body spirit, and social media that await you when you order your copy of Kathi Casey’s book “Get Off the Couch, Potato!” today!

Besides the seminar, I’m also giving away my How to Change Your Life With Magnesium as well as a special on my Completement Now! 2-year wellness program.

So, get off the couch and get with the Program.

Or while you’re still on the couch you can listen to my interview with Dr. Don Wagner on the Dr. Don Show: KAAA – 1230 AM and WYCD – 99.5. We talked about Irritable Bowel Syndrome and tried to figure out why allopathic medicine ignores the nutritional component of this condition.
