Medicalizing Sleeplessness

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Saturday, September 17, 2011

“The Medicalization of Sleeplessness: A Public Health Concern” is the title of an article in the August, 2011 issue of the American Journal of Public health. The authors address the fact that sleeplessness is being increasingly diagnosed and medicalized as a disease condition called insomnia. I call it “creating the disease and offering the cure.”

To come to this conclusion they examined the trend in sleeplessness complaints, diagnoses, and prescriptions of sedative hypnotics in doctor’s office visits from 1993 to 2007.

They found that complaints and insomnia diagnoses increased over time and were far outpaced by prescriptions for sedative hypnotics. They conclude that “insomnia may be a public health concern, but potential overtreatment with marginally effective, expensive medications with nontrivial side effects raises definite population health concerns.”

What do you do instead of taking sleeping pills? Magnesium? Clay baths?

Actually, it’s more than just taking a pill, even if it is magnesium. And more than just detoxing, even if it is clay. Magnesium and clay will definitely help but what if you’re not sleeping because you have a lot of electrical appliances in your bedroom that irritate your brain. A member of Completement Now! told me she hadn’t slept well for a year until she discovered the electrical box for new house was in her bedroom. She took the advice of Module 4 in my program and shuts off her electricity at night. You can obtain that module as well as Modules 1-3 for free by signing up for this newsletter.

Yes, it’s much more than just taking a pill to knock you out! What if the sugar you eat before bedtime keeps you awake? What if there is too much light coming into your bedroom at night? What if your stress hormones kick in at night and keep you awake? Sure, magnesium can help, and that’s where I start but I’d also advise you to look into your lifestyle.

To make it easy for you to modify your lifestyle I spent two years developing an online wellness program that holds you hand and shows you the way to a healthy life. In the month of September, for the bargain of a lifetime sign up for Kathi Casey’s free “Ultimate Back Care Summit – Natural Healing with 7 Masters” where you can click on my Special Offer and join my 2-year, Completement Now! program. It’s only $97.00 instead of $240.00. For a short time only and for a limited number of new members, with Kathi’s offer, you get all 104 modules for less than a dollar apiece!

It’s All About Lifestyle

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Thursday, September 15, 2011

Here’s an unsolicited testimonial from a reader who just completed the two years of my online wellness program: Completement Now!

She says:

“I just wanted to thank you for all the effort and thought you put into your health modules. It has been a big blessing to me and I’m going back through them all now with a journal book, taking notes and seeing where I am with each one.

Some have been hard for me, like not washing my meal down with water. Many things have helped me right away like darkening my bedroom for better sleep.

I am going through some withdrawal without the weekly input but that’s why I’m keeping my notebooks around me constantly and going back through the info. I did put every page in a plastic protector sheet. Since I can’t sit at the computer long, it has really helped me to have them handy.

Here is a picture of them against the carpet I put in my bedroom last year at the exact same time as your module on carpets… I still say you spied on me….Ho’ponopono nothwithstanding! LOL. That was too funny.

Thanks again for all that you do.”

Since she loved it so much, I signed her up to repeat the whole series (for free) so she could keep enjoying the benefits.

Beneficial Mucus Elimination (BME) Weight Loss Cure!

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Tuesday, September 13, 2011

Earlier this year I videotaped a series of critiques on various “diet cures.” Mostly I dissed them all and promoted a balanced diet along with exercise and lifestyle changes. You can see the series at HowCast.com.

However, my recent brush with a cold left me on a minimal diet with the result of losing a few pounds. So I’ll share it with you as the BME Weight Loss Cure!

Here’s what I’m presently eating and drinking.

a. 1-2 shakes of protein powder (Calories 60) (and green powder (Calories 40) (from Tropical Traditions).
b. 1 nectarine: Calories 50
c. 2 oranges: Calories 110
d. Hot Lemonade (AKA The Master Cleanser): 1 quart water, 4 TBSP concentrated lemon juice, 1 TBSP maple syrup, pinch of cayenne, pinch of ginger. Calories: 60
e. 1 quart Costco organic chicken broth seasoned with Spike and cayenne and 1/8th cup chicken. I began drinking this after about 4pm. Calories: 30
f. Popcorn, from organic corn, popped in coconut oil, with added seasalt (no butter). Every 2-3 days. Calories not counted.

Total Calories: 350

Of course it helped to have no appetite as I was exuding gobs of mucus. However, I feel fine on it and am losing a half to a full pound a day. I think it’s a great detox to do if you don’t feel well.

Media: On my recent radio show about magnesium on Magnificent Menopause a question about Vitamin K2 helping to grow bones came up. I said if you eat lots of greens you get your Vitamin K. But the whole story is that Vit K1 comes from greens and is broken down in your gut by beneficial bacteria to Vit K2. But, in order for that to happen, you have to have those beneficial bacteria. To ensure a good supply of beneficial bacteria, I recommend the probiotic, Prescript Assist. It’s so powerful you only have to take one or two per week. You can also get Vit K2 from natto, cheese and curds or pills. But why buy pills when you can just improve your gut and let your body do what comes naturally.

Drugs versus Magnesium

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Saturday, September 10, 2011

Two things caught my attention recently and I just had to pass them along. A reader reminded me that many types of aspirin are buffered with magnesium, which some researchers say may be the actual reason why aspirin helps treat heart disease! Ain’t that a kicker!

So, a wise person might ask, why not just take magnesium if that’s what’s doing all the work anyway? But do your own research before you stop your drugs. Google buffered aspirin and magnesium and see what comes up.

The second thing was the FDA approving botox injections into your face and head for migraines! Compare this painful multi-thousand dollar approach with taking magnesium along with some feverfew and B6 for natural relief. I talk about magnesium for migraines in The Magnesium Miracle.

Migraines can also indicate a toxic overload, for which I recommend clay and magnesium baths. This past week I experienced a “beneficial mucus elimination” AKA-a bad cold. Every day for a week I did a clay and magnesium bath and I noticed that by the end of the week the clay at the bottom of the bath was no longer black but the original grey color. I have no lab tests to prove it but I’m sure it’s an indication that I had less toxins by the end of the week! I recommend LL’s Magnetic Clay and Magnesium Flakes.

Media: Last week on Sept. 8, 2011 I was a guest on the Magnificent Menopause radio show that you can listen to right here. Yes, we did focus on magnesium!

I also presented at Kathi Casey’s “Ultimate Back Care Summit – Natural Healing with 7 Masters”. My seminar was Tuesday Sept 6, 2011 but you can still access the archives. And you can continue with the rest of the series. You can also sign up for a very special offer of my online wellness program.

Eat Dirt, It’s Organic!

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Wednesday, September 7, 2011

The handsome reader (his words) who sent me the note about longevity being a benefit of getting your hands dirty in your garden just forwarded me an article about soil bacteria as a possible cure for cancer. Which gives us even more reason to use soil-based probiotics, bathe in clay and eat dirt.

As a new twist on the sarcastic phrase “Eat dirt, it’s organic!” I have tried a product called Edible Earth but find that it has so much magnesium, it gives me a laxative effect! So I only use it when I’m fasting because it’s designed for detoxification and to revitalize the entire GI tract. It’s also a great way to get all the known minerals. Most people can take it every morning an hour away from meals either alone or along with psyllium seed for bulk.

What does it do? According to LL’s, Edible Earth:

*Soothes and Purifies the Digestive Tract
*Remineralizes Cells and Tissues
*Promotes Bacterial Balance in the Colon
*Assists in Heavy Metal and Chemical Detoxification
*Augments Digestive Efficiency
*Supports Nutrient Assimilation in the Gut
*Alkalizes the Body

I get my soil-based Prescript Assist, Magnetic Clay and Edible Earth from LL’s Magnetic Clay.

A Note from a Reader:

“I wanted to throw a thought over to you – I am in my upper 50s and I remember reading a national geographic article late 60s or early 70s I think….of folks who lived to be 100+…the article talked about 30 or 40 folks…from all over the world…different levels of wealth…different occupations…some from tropics some from cold climates…some male some female…most outlived at least one spouse…some even SMOKED! but the ONE common denominator was that ALL had gardens!!!”

Questions about Water Quality

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Saturday, September 3, 2011

A reader sent in the following question. “How does the fluoride in municipal water affect clay/magnesium baths?”

I haven’t done the research on fluoride but I have on chlorine. I have chlorine test strips that I use to check my Athena water filter. So, one day I had the idea to use them in my bath water, before and after pouring in my blended ½ cup of clay. Before, I got a high chlorine reading; after, there was a negative chlorine reading. After that I began telling clients to take clay with them when they traveled so they could have relaxing baths in the hotel and not have to worry about chlorine. I also know it works to neutralize “chemicals” because the lavender drops I use to put in my bath are negated and there is no lavender aroma anymore!

My source for clay to be used as a powerful detox agent in baths and footbaths is LL’s Magnetic Clay. Blend up ½ cup of clay in 32 ounces of water and pour into your bath.

If anyone has any before and after testing for fluoride in a clay bath, please let me know.

The reader also said “I drink distilled water to avoid fluoride, nitrites and other chemicals.”

I personally avoid distilled water. It is devoid of chemicals, alright, but also devoid of minerals which give it its life force and make it an unparalleled electromagnetic conductor that orchestrates the body’s metabolism. I use an Athena water filter that eliminates most chemicals from the water including chlorine, chloramines, fluoride.

Reading Matthew Silverstone’s book, Blinded by Science you will be literally swept away by his scientific confirmation of the importance of good water.

Consumer Reports Disses Magnesium

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Saturday, August 27, 2011

In the August, 2011 issue of Consumer Reports on Health you’ll find a treatment overview of leg cramps. Based on the latest research, they concluded that when it came to leg cramps, magnesium is only effective for pregnant women. A blog reader sent me this information and was appalled that they said it was not effective for anyone else. He was very disappointed with the report since he has found magnesium (along with some calcium) totally effective in controlling his leg, foot and hand cramps.

Consumer Reports said two studies of people who had leg cramps for unknown reasons found that treatment with magnesium didn’t work any better than treatment with a placebo. They concluded that: “More good-quality studies are needed to show whether taking a supplement of magnesium can reduce the number of leg cramps you get and make them less painful.”

Don’t be blinded by this lack of science! Because there are no studies doesn’t mean magnesium is not beneficial. It just means that since magnesium can’t be patented, drug companies are not going to put up the billion dollars necessary to do a large study.

And don’t be blinded by this report. Consumer Reports’ opinion should not stop you from doing your own experiment. I’ve experimented countless times over the years. It’s very simple. When I don’t take enough magnesium, I get Charlie horses in bed at night and leg cramps when I swim too long in cold water.

If anyone you know is pregnant, make sure to send them this blog so they can take magnesium. It’s a very important nutrient for dozens of pregnancy symptoms, including leg cramps.

To find out more about the shocking failings of science, read Blinded by Science by Matthew Silverstone.

Curing Colitis with the SCD Diet

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Wednesday, August 24, 2011

Here’s a wonderful testimonial on the benefits of The Specific Carbohydrate Diet.

I recommended this diet to my client in June of 2009 to treat her colitis. She writes the following:

“My case followed the Specific Carbohydrate Diet book (written by Elaine Gottschall) to the letter. I had colitis for about 4 years before I went on the diet. The worst triggers were exhaustion due to sleepless nights with three young children; head colds: and seeing or speaking to my gastro doctor!

On the diet, I had a mildly bumpy first 2 years (but significant shift in symptoms right away, so it was easy to keep going). The bumps occurred every 3 months or so when I would get minor symptoms. After one year I went 7 months with no symptoms, then had another minor attack. The attacks changed in nature right away; they were mild and short-lived. I just passed the 2-year mark (on the diet) and I have no symptoms – bags of energy and I’m about to run a half marathon.

Not only has the diet settled down my colitis, it cured me of the constipation, which I’ve had since childhood (when not in a colitis attack, of course!).

I also believe that my diet is amazingly healthy and I’m so happy that I am cooking and eating such a delicious and healthy diet after all I’ve been through.

I do not use supplements now. I make and use the SCD yogurt for my probiotics and can tell I am best when I’m having some of this.

The book suggests 2 years for Crohns/Colitis to expect to be symptom-free and I seem to be going in that direction. As a testament to that, I’m working part-time in my profession and looking after my 3 young children without any pain or interruptions.

I have also benefited a lot also from mindfulness meditation practice and its message for staying present and in the moment.

The only minor negative (or maybe positive?) thing I would say is that the diet gets you back in the kitchen and you have to be prepared for that. I have managed it through wonderful family support. I would highly recommend the delicious recipes on a website called No More Crohns.”

My client made the choice to embrace diet instead of drugs for her colitis and couldn’t be more happy and healthy! The same choice is always yours!
