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.

More Magnesium in 2012

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Wednesday, January 4, 2012

In the first few days of 2012 I’ve been inundated with emails about magnesium.

1. A reader wanted me to know that she thinks magnesium is going big-time because she heard a local talk radio advertising MagOx and saw a TV ad for Phillips Caplets. Both are magnesium oxide products for constipation.

She knows I say magnesium oxide is only 4% absorbed so it’s bound to cause the laxative effect, yet, not give you enough magnesium for other important functions. But we both agreed that at least some information about magnesium is getting out there. But I did find out that MagOx is covered by Medicaid. But avoid Phillips Caplets because of the “added ingredients” Microcrystalline Cellulose, Croscarmellose Sodium, Pregelatinized Starch, Stearic Acid, Polyvinyl Alcohol, Titanium Dioxide, Polyethylene Glycol, Talc, Silicon Dioxide.

TALC…Lord Suffering Cats!

2. A young woman wrote that she has terrible migraines and in the past six months has experienced severe leg cramps, muscle spasms, constant twitches, soreness, and aching. Her doctor did some blood work and found a folic acid deficiency but didn’t look for magnesium. Adding folic acid did nothing. Then she remembered reading something about magnesium for migraines. She had tried it years ago and seen improvement in her migraines, but stopped because she found herself constantly running to the bathroom. She asked me what to do.

I get the laxative effect with any amount and any kind of magnesium tablets. I told her that my solution to the laxative effect is to use angstrom magnesium. I also use magnesium flakes in my daily bath.

Angstrom magnesium is fairly new on the supplement scene. I’ve written about it and given case histories in my $5.00 eBook, How to Change Your Life with Magnesium. I’ve validated its effectiveness for myself snd a veterinarian friend tells me about his incredible case histories. He says the angstrom mineral liquids work as well as IV minerals for his animal patients.

Standard minerals are broken down into a size between a nanometer and a picometer. Very Small. But that’s the size of the ion channels that allow minerals inside our cells. So, angstrom minerals are very low potency but are said to be 100% absorbed into the cells. Thus, no laxative effect and relief of symptoms.

3. A gentleman from Brooklyn wanted to know about the availability of magnesium intravenous therapy. I told him to use angstrom minerals and transdermal magnesium oil. According to Dr. Norm Shealy, you can increase your blood levels of magnesium using transdermal magnesium oil faster than with IV magnesium.

4. A dutiful granddaughter, convinced that her grandmother’s angina would benefit from magnesium, bemoaned the fact that I don’t see patients and that her doctor didn’t “believe” in supplements. I told her that nobody could argue with putting Epsom salts into a footbath that would allow her body to absorb enough magnesium to make a difference.

Tools For An Uplifting New Year

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Thursday, December 29, 2011

I tend to receive questions about depression around the holidays. It’s a time when families get jumbled together and are forced to interact, dragging up past hurts and traumas. I don’t treat depression over the phone but refer to a treatment that works offered at Truehope. EMPowerplus is a high potency vitamin/mineral formula for depression that has an 80% effectiveness compared with a JAMA study conclusion that three quarters of the benefit from antidepressants seems to be a placebo effect.

A friend from Canada, Anthony Stephan, felt forced to come up with a solution for two of his children heavily medicated for bipolar disorder. His wife had committed suicide a few years before and Tony was desperate. He spoke with a friend at church, David Hardy, who had spent twenty years as an animal feed formulator. Hardy said that the bipolar behavior of Stephan’s son, Joe, sounded to him like a pig with ear-and-tail-biting syndrome. Furthermore, Hardy told him that some farmers had successfully used a nutritional supplementation program to control the syndrome.

Using Hardy’s extensive knowledge of pig feed supplementation, the two men formulated a human version of the regimen, using human grade supplements. Stephan’s children responded to the formula and were able to discontinue their medications. As they recovered and began to resume healthy lives, word spread through their communities. Stephan and Hardy were happy to share their regimen and soon there were hundreds of people trying this early version of what is now EMPowerplus.

You can read more about the Discovery of EMPowerplus and be amazed at the testimonials and 14 research papers published in peer-reviewed journals showing that much of depression is related to nutritional deficiencies.

For anxiety I often recommend the Linden Method that you can access online. And I’m also exploring The Healing Codes and Healing Codes Program by Drs. Alex Loyd and Ben Johnson. The Codes neutralize negative memories. For me, the Healing Codes provide tools that can be applied to the theories of German New Medicine…which states that physical illness is a result of mental trauma.

All in all, there are many alternative therapies for the mental stress and trauma that affect many of us so that we aren’t forced to take antidepressants that may not work but always produce side effects.

Jazz Up Your Clay Baths

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, December 23, 2011

I realize that I’ve been lazy about my clay baths and not keeping you properly informed. Don’t get me wrong, I take one almost every day but I’ve just been using the natural clay and not the ones with added herbs and charcoal.

I was reminded about this a few days ago when a reader asked me what I thought about using activated charcoal for detox. Fortunately, LL’s Magnetic Clay has the answer. They have incorporated activated charcoal as a detox agent in several of their clay formulas.

Activated charcoal is a form of carbon that has been processed to make it extremely porous giving it a very large surface area available for adsorption of toxins and chemicals.

The list of LL’s Clay Baths that include charcoal are:
Clear-Out
Smoker’s/Drug Detox
Dental/Mercury Detox
Aluminum, Copper & Lead Detox.
Tox-Away,
Arsenic, and Environmental
Radiation

For more details about the various detoxes, go to this page: What Clay Detox Bath Do I Use?

Several Clay Baths also contain herbal formulas that help tweak the detox in a specific direction. I haven’t been using them because I didn’t want to go through the bother of scraping them out of the tub at the end of my bath. But, DUH, I realize all you need to do is put the herbs in a piece of gauze, tie them up and throw them away at the end.

You can use several cups of clay in a bath at one time for a deep detox. Because I rebel against scooping the clay out of my bath at the end, I just blend up 1/2 cup of clay with 32oz of water and pour that into my tub. Blending makes sure the clay doesn’t clump and it runs down the drain without any problems. I also like to think it detoxes the environment! And I take a daily bath instead of once or twice a week, so in the long run I’m using 3.5 cups clay per week.

Here are few suggestions from clay users. One person says she doesn’t have a blender so she mixes her clay into a 2-quart jar of water, using chopsticks. She lets it sit and stirs it every time she come into her bathroom and it’s all blended after a few hours and several stirs. Another of my blog readers reminds people to open their bathroom window or have the vents on when you use a clay bath. She said the clay pulled so much toxicity from her that she could smell the fumes of old chemicals she’d been exposed to in her youth! The most recent question was whether they are safe for septic tanks…and the clay instructions online and with your clay assure that they are.

Events: Go to Kim Greenhouse’s website and listen to a Dec 22, 2011 interview on Magnificent Magnesium and Much More.

Shopping: For the Holdiays, give the gift of Clay! Or buy one of my ebooks and have me personally deliver it on a day of your choosing! See below.

Time for a Coffee…Enema!

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, December 18, 2011

Most of what I share with you in my blogs comes from personal experience. And there is one therapy I’ve been holding back on. Coffee enemas.

I guess I didn’t want your responses to degenerate into locker room humor. But the effectiveness of coffee enemas as a potent liver and intestinal detoxifier can no longer be denied.

In the past week I read something about estrogens accumulating because of entero-hepatic recirculation. Also, an online autism seminar focused on entero-hepatic recirculation being a problem for continued reabsorption of toxins in these children.

You can read about enterohepatic recycling of bile salts in Wikipedia. However, know that “numerous drugs undergo elimination via the bile in the unchanged or conjugated form. Drugs eliminated in the bile are available for absorption in the GI tract. This re-entry into the body after ‘elimination’ via the bile results in the “recycling” of drug and prolongs the time required for the drug to be irreversibly eliminated from the body.”

That’s part of the reason why drugs can become so toxic. They are reabsorbed along with bile salts back to the liver where they are reprocessed in ways that can make them infinitely more toxic than the original. Yet another reason to look for safe solutions to your health problems!

My paternal grandmother was the head nurse of a fever hospital in Montreal. They used high colonic enemas to treat their patients. Lowering fevers and removing infectious toxins was easily accomplished with this therapy. But it fell out of favor when the “scientific” method of drug therapy gained precedence.

I learned about coffee enemas when reading A Cancer Therapy: results of Fifty Cases and the Cure of Advanced Cancer by Dr. Max Gerson and Charlotte Gerson. That book was written in 1958 and is just as powerful now in its promise of a natural cure to cancer. One of the most important modalities in the Gerson Therapy is coffee enemas.

I’m honored to be on the Board of the Gerson Institute and support the ceaseless efforts of Charlotte Gerson, now in her 90th year, and her son Howard Straus. Another friend, Dr. Nicholas Gonzalas prescribes coffee enemas for his treatment of cancer. With his natural therapies, he has one of the best cure rates of pancreatic cancer. At the Gerson Institute and Dr. Gonzalas’s office, patients, staff and practitioners all benefit from this modality.

In this short blog, I won’t have time to go into the details of performing a coffee enema or even all the attributes. For more information read the Biological Basis for Coffee Enemas and Liver Detoxification with Coffee Enemas. This site has sensible enema instructions. And, of course, I would use organic coffee. The one thing I would add is to be sure and take a good probiotic on the days you are doing coffee enemas. My recommendation is Prescript Assist. You can also put the contents of one Prescript Assist capsule in 2 ounces of water and pour that in your enema bag and insert this liquid as a “rectal implant” after your enema.

Also, heed my warning below “Only you can know if something is helping you. If you don’t feel well doing a therapy, listen to your body and stop doing it! Knowing when to Not do something is a big part of taking responsibility for your health.”

Add coffee enemas to your list of safe, inexpensive and effective solutions that include clay baths, magnesium baths, coconut oil and food-based supplements…all of which I have listed below.

Miracles for the Holidays

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Tuesday, December 13, 2011

You can create miracles this holiday season with my magnesium books and magnesium supplements. Give magnesium presents to everyone to show that you care.

To remind you of the importance of magnesium, here are some recent testimonials.

1. From a 39 year old woman.

“I just want to say “Thank You” for your awesome book about magnesium. Armed with what I learned in that book, I figured out why I’d been having difficulty sleeping through the night for over a year. I had always slept perfectly my whole life until suddenly I began waking up in the night and having trouble falling back to sleep even though I slept in total darkness, ate healthy and even used herbs to promote restful sleep. I wasn’t until I began taking 800 mg of magnesium glycinate/day that I finally have what I was longing for! I now go to sleep and sleep solidly the entire night. It’s so wonderful not to dread bedtime anymore. I recommend your book to people every chance I get.

2. Another reader says she’s soaking, sipping and saturating with magnesium and loving it.

3. A Mom reports on her child.

“My son has reacted wonderfully to the magnesium. His homework is going much better and school seems easier.”

4. A military wife wrote a review of the Magnesium Miracle on amazon.com quoted the following passage about head injury and recommended that magnesium be used for everyone in the military.

“A magnesium deficit from head injury is slow to reverse. According to neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock, magnesium takes thirty minutes to get into the spinal fluid; three hours to reach the cortical area directly under the skull; and a full four to six hours for sufficient amounts of magnesium to reach the deep brain tissues. Experiments with Navy SEALs and marathon runners show that after a month of intensive training, they experience magnesium deficiency and, if no supplements are taken, the deficiency is still present three to six months later.”

5. From a Nurse of 28 years who says she’s finally awakened from the great deception occurring in medicine.

“Dr.Carolyn, just wanted to thank you for your book the Magnesium Miracle. I had a limp and joint pain, found out the fluorides were leaching out my magnesium and when I began drinking reverse osmosis water and taking a liquid calcium and magnesium and Vit D supplement in the proper ratios the limp went away the first day and the bone pain in my left hip disappeared in 6 months and the joint pain and swelling disappeared.”

I’m serious. Give the Magnesium Miracle and magnesium products to your loved ones for the holidays. There is no more lasting gift than good health.

Coffee Cancels Magnesium

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, December 11, 2011

In August 2010, I wrote an article for the Huffington Post called Coffee Addiction: How to Naturally Kick the Habit.

Recently another Huff Post article came out with the opposite view, 7 Health Benefits Of Coffee. It’s a review of the “so-called” scientific research that says coffee can lower cholesterol, prevent cancer, diabetes, depression…and make you a millionaire…

OK, that last benefit is not true…but, let’s look at what the studies really say. One study in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reports that drinking 8 cups of coffee a day can raise your HDL cholesterol allowing every coffee lover to feel vindicated. Even thought HDL was raised by a measly 7%. You can probably shift your HDL that much by holding your breath when having your blood taken. I’m kidding, but you get the point.

Some of these studies look at a few dozen people who are told to drink a certain amount of coffee and one or two types of blood tests are measured. In the above case they measure cholesterol and inflammatory markers.

But they are not looking at the underlying negative effects of too much coffee, such as magnesium deficiency caused by the diuretic effect of coffee. As your body loses magnesium, then your blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar are going to rise. Any short term gains created by coffee are soon lost…but that’s after the study is closed and the erroneous findings are blasted through the media by the coffee industry.

When clients wrote and wanted to know how much coffee they could safely drink. Here’s what I told them.

It’s all about moderation. I’d say that 200 mg a day of caffeine is “safe.” Here is a website with a rough gauge of caffeine content.

And remember this—heavy daily caffeine use—more than 500 to 600 mg a day—may cause: Insomnia, Nervousness, Restlessness, Irritability, Stomach upset, Fast heartbeat and Muscle tremors.

Muscle tremors are a sure fire indication that magnesium is being depleted from the body…which then leads to many other magnesium deficiency side effects.
So, these short-term studies just measuring one or two outcomes miss the whole picture.

So, be sensible in your caffeine intake and don’t use it to boost your flagging energy. Engage in Lying Down Therapy instead!

Healthy Holiday Presents!

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Thursday, December 8, 2011

A recent journal review reminded me how common back pain is in the general population. Researchers declared that most adults suffer low back pain at some point during their lives. The cost to U.S. taxpayers runs into the tens of billions and creates 2.63 million annual emergency room visits. A third of patients receive some sort of X-ray, CT scan or MRI. And two thirds of patients are given strong pain medication. No mention was made of magnesium, chiropractic manipulation, massage, or physical therapy.

With so many people suffering back pain, it’s good to have a plan in mind to prevent and treat this common condition. I start with magnesium—oral, transdermal and in baths. Then I move to physical therapy and specific exercises from Jesse Cannone.

I wrote about back pain in June, 2010, The Back Feels What the Back Feels. My recommendation then and now is for you to review Jesse’s Lose the Back Pain System. Why not make it a holiday present for yourself or your friends and family.

Jesse suffered excruciating pain and was on the brink of knee surgery before he realized what he could do for himself. As a fitness trainer he decided to take matters into his own hands and designed a program for himself that, over the years, he’s turned into an excellent back pain treatment for the public.

For more information you can also pick up Jesse recently updated book. It’s free. 7-Day Back Pain Cure You just pay shipping.

Other holiday presents can be found in my list of recommendations, below. In these trying times, health becomes your most valuable resource. Set the standard in your world by giving healthy presents! Give my Completement Now! online wellness course, magnesium, my books, some coconut oil and Grown by Nature supplements and you’ll be healing two birds with one salve!

Wellness Is At Hand

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Tuesday, December 6, 2011

In my last blog, First Do No Harm, I said I’d write about cancer prevention and treatment. When I was in private practice in the 1980’s cancer was rare. At least it was rare in my practice. Now, it seems epidemic. Why is that?

If cancer were just from excess synthetic estrogen or chemicals or lack of nutrients, why doesn’t every person exposed get cancer? I personally think it’s because there is also a stressful trigger to cancer. I’ve learned a lot about this from Total Biology and German New Medicine.

They say that if the mind is stressed to the breaking point it will place the problem in the body as a solution to the stress. You can read more at the German New Medicine website. A book on the topic that I found useful is Patrick Obissier’s Biogenealogy: Decoding the Psychic Roots of Illness: Freedom from the Ancestral Origins of Disease.

This medicine is practiced to a limited extent in German and France but there are even fewer practitioners in the U.S. and Canada. It flies in the face of Western Medicine which places so little emphasis on the psychological cause and impact of disease. If someone has stress, they are sent to a psychiatrist and put on medication to suppress the stress. In GNM, the trigger for the stress is uncovered and in that recognition, often healing begins.

GNM seems to demand that people stay away from Western Medicine, however I feel that people can learn about the stressful cause of their illness and also opt for surgical debulking of their tumor and employ alternative medicine options like the Gerson Therapy for mopping up any remaining toxins or aberrant cells.

In fact, it’s Gerson Therapy that most of my readers wrote me about after my last blog. It’s high on the list of effective cancer treatments.

A resource that my friend, Dr. Russell Blaylock recommends is Suzanne Sommer’s book, Knockout. In it you can learn about the many cancer treatment options that are available. Once you start looking you’ll be amazed and also appalled that allopathic medicine keeps ignoring and attacking these treatments.

My recommendations for cancer prevention are to follow a healthy lifestyle, (such as I describe in my wellness program, Completement Now!, follow a regular detoxing practice (as per my recommendations below), and stay positive (I do that by following the advice of iON).

I also avoid TV that incessantly shows commercials about drugs and “advertises” cancer. I’m amazed how many homes switch on the TV as soon as they wake up and allow themselves to be bombarded with propaganda. Instead, I watch a free online network called 1 Channel where I can choose commercial-free TV shows and movies that I like.

And never forget, Wellness Is At Hand. For support you can look into Healing Rooms and The Universal Healing Group. Or start your own!

First Do No Harm

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, December 2, 2011

I’m not an oncologist; maybe they don’t have to repeat the Hippocratic Oath when they graduate because the ones I’ve been hearing about sure aren’t following the precept “First Do No Harm.”

Several health professionals are “taking care” of a friend of mine who they diagnosed with cancer. Taking care is in quotes because I get the distinct impression that they are trying to hasten her demise. My friend lives alone and is very concerned that the chemo and radiation they are recommending would be too debilitating for her to take care of herself. When she expressed her reservations the doctors and staff tried to force her decision.

The surgeon performed a total hysterectomy which removed the tumor and there were no cancer cells in the lymph nodes. But she still strongly recommended chemo and radiation in case a few cells got away and began to spread the cancer.

The surgeon’s nurse phoned my friend and said, if you don’t have chemo and radiation as a preventative measure, you will be in bed in the next 6 months writhing in agony from spreading cancer wishing you had done the chemo and radiation, and it will be too late for you.

My friend said that the radiology oncologist was so negative that he actually made the surgeon look like a ray of sunshine. He said she had hardly any chance of survival. He said that hard-core radiation… both wide-beam pelvic and vaginal radiation, as well as chemotherapy would be her treatment. Even with that and all of the treatments’ horrific side effects, she would have a bit more chance of survival but not much.

She was told to get her affairs in order because the cancer will recurr soon. My friend refused the chemo and radiation again. Then he suggested that she do a full body CT scan to see if the chemo and radiation was worth doing at all. He said the cancer may have already spread to other parts of my body like the lungs, in which case there is no hope, so the treatment would be a waste of time. He also said that if the cancer recurs, there is nothing much they can do. They can try chemo and radiation at that point, but he said the results would not be great.

My friend said that her experience just proves that with all the billions poured into cancer research, they still know nothing!

My first thought was to get her away from these so-called health professionals who were likely creating another cancer due to the tremendous fear they were generating in her. I believe that as much as positive affirmations can help heal serious illness, multiple negative affirmations can cause disease. I believe that an unsolvable problem can worry the mind to the point that it tries to find a solution in the physical body through illness.

Over the next few blogs, I’ll give you my thoughts on the cause, the prevention and the treatment of cancer. In the meantime, follow my general recommendations below, I’m convinced they and a positive attitude will keep me cancer-free.
