An Atrial Fibrillation Testimonial

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, February 21, 2014

The following is a testimonial from a client of mine who wants to support other people who take magnesium and then decide to wean off their medications for AFib.

Here are his words:

“I am a 57-year old man who was diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillation 4 months ago. My symptoms included an irregular heartbeat, shortness of breath, anxiety, and lack of strength. I was unable to walk up a short flight of stairs without my symptoms kicking in. Up to this point I had been a very healthy person doing regular workouts and eating extremely healthy.

The next month consisted of a cardioversion and numerous visits with doctors and electrophysiologists. I was put on 3 different prescription drugs and told I would need a catheter ablation. During this time, my condition did not improve. I kept reading and researching AFib and noticed that while my doctors could never give me a reason for my AFib, Dr. Dean said it was due to a lack of magnesium. I contacted her and she recommended ReMag (1 tsp 2-3 times a day) and ReMyte (1/2 tsp three times a day) and she told me to start slowly on them at ½ tsp a day and work up by ½ tsp every 3 days.

She also had me take a Magnesium RBC blood test, which confirmed that my magnesium was low. I started to feel more energized after taking the ReMag and ReMyte. I was seeing improvement, but my pulse was still irregular and anytime I did something physical, my AFib symptoms came back. But I was still taking three prescription drugs.

During this time, I continued to watch videos and read articles by Dr. Dean and learned that some drugs can block magnesium from working in the body. My Magnesium RBC blood levels were improving but not to the optimum of 6.0mg/dL. It was at that time I decided on my own to stop taking my prescription drugs. I knew the magnesium was making me better but the drugs were keeping it from being totally effective. I asked Dr. Dean how to wean off my prescription drugs. She wanted me to work with my doctor and said to wean off one drug at a time by cutting the pills in half and then in quarters and reducing the dosage every 3-4 days.

The rest of the story is that I noticed great improvement after getting off the prescription drugs. It was the breakthrough I had been hoping for. My pulse has been steady. My energy is great. All my symptoms disappeared. I am back to doing physical activities; walking on the treadmill, jumping rope, and shoveling snow! Getting off the prescription drugs, I feel, allowed my magnesium to work. My followed up RBC test shows that my magnesium level is at optimum levels where it should be. I feel better and better each day!

After numerous doctors told me I needed long-term prescription drugs and catheter ablations, it was Dr. Dean who guided me back to health. I cannot express in words how thankful I am for all that Dr. Dean has done for me. Thank-you, Dr. Dean for giving me back my life that allows me to do all the things I desire and enjoy!”

Heartburn Drugs Burn the Heart

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Wednesday, February 12, 2014

I quoted a Forbes Magazine article from Jan 16, 2014 in my blog Killer Beta Blocker Guidelines. Forbes has come out with another piece on the dangers of drugs: “Animal Study Raises Safety Questions About Heartburn Drugs.”

It seems that the stomach acid-suppressing proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) (Prilosec, Nexium, Prevacid) used to treat acid reflux, heartburn and GERD may cause blood vessels to constrict, reducing blood flow, leading to long term heart damage.What do you magnesium-aware people think constricted blood vessels and heart damage means? You’re Right! Magnesium Deficiency. But do the researchers know that? Absolutely not!

The study, called, “An Unexpected Effect of Proton Pump Inhibitors” was published July 3, 2013, in Circulation. I could do a whole rant on how ridiculous it is that doctors think heart side effects are “unexpected” reactions to drugs, when that’s what they mainly do – deplete the body of magnesium and put the heart at risk. But I won’t, I’ll just stick with the facts.

PPIs reduce the ability of mouse blood vessels to relax by an average of more than 30%. The same effect is found in human blood vessels. The authors state the obvious that: “This is very important because blood vessels need to be able to contract and open up to control blood flow.” DUH!

Previous studies have linked PPIs with increased risk of heart attack and heart damage. Yet the American Heart Association considers proton pump inhibitors safe. Several studies have linked these drugs to a higher risk of pneumonia; infection with the bacteria Clostridium difficile which causes severe diarrhea and intestinal infection; and an increased risk of fractures.

And finally, In April 2011 the FDA warned that using PPIs for more than one year could lead to lower than normal levels of magnesium, increasing the risk of arrhythmias, seizures, and muscle spasms.

Why aren’t they off the market if they are causing harm? Here’s a reason. Proton pump inhibitors are very big business; in 2009 they surpassed cholesterol drugs becoming the second-largest class of drugs sold in the U.S. Total sales were 13.6 billion. Nexium alone brought $6.3 billion in sales to AstraZeneca.

What do I advise for acid reflux, heartburn and GERD? Magnesium to relax spasms of the esophageal sphincter, diaphragm and stomach. Magnesium to improve the gastric acid in the stomach. Magnesium to help the digestion and absorption of all food groups. Magnesium to help treat the symptoms of yeast overgrowth. Magnesium to prevent constipation – I could go on you know!!

I also recommend DGL Licorice, chew 1-2 tablets before meals. In my patient population they work even better than PPI’s. But first, chew your food well – 30 times per bite; no more than a few ounces of liquids with a meal. If you use digestive enzymes make sure you take HCL tablets for protein digestion at the end of meals. If you want more suggestions beyond these, get my Future Health Now Encyclopedia which contains the natural treatment of 134 health conditions.

Oral Magnesium Better Than IV

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Saturday, February 1, 2014

What follows are the words from the grateful wife of a man whose life was saved by ReMag. They offered this testimonial on the Magnesium Advocacy Facebook page and said I could use it including their last name. But I’m choosing to just use their first names.

“Thank you Dr. Carolyn Dean and ReMag! My name is Lynn. My husband, Dana has hypomagnesemia. He was diagnosed with malabsorption at the Mayo Clinic. He loses magnesium through his bowels, therefore oral magnesium was never an option. We have been told by 40 well known specialists that all they could do was IV magnesium.

He has had a PICC line for over 7 years and required 4 grams of IV magnesium 3 times per week up until September of 2013. In the past 2 years he has had 3 life threatening events as a direct result of the PICC line (blood infection and on 2 different occasions, blood clots). When the PICC line stopped working the next step was to put in a permanent PORT Line in his chest.

In September 2013, the PICC line came out for good as a result of another blood clot. We took a giant leap of faith against all of his doctors’ advice and he started on ReMag under the guidance of Dr. Dean. The results were immediate; his magnesium levels are testing higher on ReMag than they did on weekly IV infusions. We are forever grateful to Dr. Carolyn Dean and her commitment to helping others.

My husband now has a quality of life he was told was not possible! ReMag does not affect his bowels. Dr. Dean was the one who pointed out the obvious to us, that my husband’s IV would give him highs and lows on magnesium whereas ReMag has stabilized his levels because he can take it several times a day and it’s also gotten his labs higher than they have ever been on the IV mag.

We have paid out of pocket for a home health nurse weekly for over 7 years. Our insurance would not cover unless he was homebound. We have both primary and secondary insurance however, we still paid a small fortune annually for home health, labs, supplies, medicine etc. But a one hour consultation and a couple of emails with Dr. Dean forever changed the course of our lives.

The timing of all of this coming together is no coincidence either. Our phone call with Dr. Dean was one week prior to the unexpected issue with the PICC line. Had I not spoken with her on that particular day and things fallen into place like they did, my husband would have a PORT and be sitting in an infusion center 3 times a week. I still can’t believe the answer was so simple. I have given Dr. Dean’s book to several of his doctors. I wonder how many people are not as lucky as we are?

The PICC line was his lifeline to magnesium however almost cost him his life more than once. I refused to believe that was his path and that is how I found Dr. Carolyn Dean. Dr. Dean not only gave him a better quality of life, there is no doubt that she saved his life!  As the Holidays approach and I think of the things I am most grateful for, it would be the answer to Prayer and many hours of research – Dr. Carolyn Dean!”

Fighting Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Thursday, January 30, 2014
Fibromyalgia (FM) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) are caused by a combination of yeast overgrowth, a lack of magnesium and a deficiency of minerals that leads to thyroid, adrenal and sex hormone weakness.The list of symptoms and conditions related to FM and CFS is long and can be overwhelming to the mind adding to the chronic stress and suffering.I’ve studied chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia from the beginning, so I know what works.1. Rest: Read Lying Down Therapy2. Very gentle exercise3. Balancing minerals (ReMag, ReMyte)4. Treating yeast. See The Yeast Connection Website

5. Detoxing (with ReAline)

6. Taking RnA Drops to make “perfect” cells

7. “Knowing” that you will get well

Women of “action” are hit the most with FM and CFS and they want to keep taking action to fix it. So, it’s actually not a matter of “fighting” these conditions but the opposite is necessary – Relaxing and Allowing as your genius body takes over and the new perfect cells you are creating are not affected by words of hopelessness.

Allopathic medicine treats FM and CFS with a host of drugs, including pain medication. The ones that have added fluoride molecules are the worst because they bind magnesium making it unavailable for its 700-800 enzyme functions in the body – including energy and treating pain and inflammation!

I received the following email from a nutritional psychologist who works in pain management. She says: “Most of my patients are on multiple drug ‘cocktails’ too numerous to list. The pain docs recommend so many drugs that I have to spend hours going over them with each person. The latest was a patient who was told by his doctor not to tell me, that he was given Topamax for weight loss. This patient (60 years old) wasn’t even overweight! He was already on 22 drugs and this was #23! His doctor also instructed the patient to ‘not look the drug up on the internet as it would scare him!’ Even I was shocked. I have heard so many experiences like this one. Doctors do literally force these drugs on patients and get very angry if they are questioned. Many patients in my practice just don’t take the drugs and drop them off at the drug re-cycling centers! What is actually going on in medicine is beyond me. I have been a medical psychologist for over 30 years and have never seen this type of overuse of drugs and over reactions of physicians.”

Drug Noncompliance BS

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Saturday, January 25, 2014
A couple of horrendously long Medscape articles really got my blood boiling this morning. One is called “An Epidemic of Noncompliance” the other “Can We Get Patients To Be More Compliant?” The writers said that doctors are “baffled by how many patients, particularly those with chronic conditions, don’t take their medications as prescribed – if at all.”Here are the noncompliance stats:

  • In the U.S, 3.8 Billion prescriptions are written each year; 50% are taken incorrectly or not at all.
  • In a 1,000-patient survey, 75% said they didn’t take their meds as directed.
  • In a 75,000-patient survey, 30% failed to fill a new prescription. New scripts for high BP, diabetes and high cholesterol were not filled 20-22% of the time.
  • In a 8,400-patient survey, only 1 in 3 were taking their high BP and high cholesterol drugs after 6 months.
  • In a 240,000-patient study, 30% were not taking their antidepressant meds after 6 months.

Then attempting to ‘baffle with bullshit,’ the article hammers at the same old tune that patients who don’t take their meds risk hospitalization and premature death. I’m sure they haven’t read my Death by Modern Medicine book. In the 3rd edition, the stats of drug side effects and deaths are even higher. Ten years ago it was ¾ of a million, now, over 1 Million people die prematurely per year due to modern medicine interventions.

But it struck me that noncompliance is the way medicine is going to explain away iatrogenic medicine. They are saying that you get sick and die because most of you are noncompliant anyway! Wow! Now there’s a Machiavellian twist.

Why are doctors so blind and don’t realize people don’t want to take meds that make them sicker, not better? After all, if their drugs worked, people would be happy to take them! One reason they are so blind is that the allopathic medical industry does not believe in drug side effects. In the articles they say one of the reasons for noncompliance is the “perceived side effects of drugs” by patients!

A person suffering a tendon rupture from the fluoride antibiotic, Cipro, does not have a “perceived side effect” that person could be crippled for life.

Here’s a long email (6 paragraphs) from a blog reader who wants to help her mother get off some of her meds. She said:

“Hello Dr. Dean. We shared with my mother your blog post about the 93 year old who stopped taking her BP meds after supplementing with Magnesium… also the familiar story of how visiting the doctor with a minor issue typically leads to a snowball drug effect. I think she has a hard time believing doctors would find it so easy to put you (keep you) on drugs without due cause – we’re ALL led to believe this fallacy!

In my own personal experience with trying to help family members improve their health, we had a sad event yesterday between my Mother and her Primary Physician. The experience was quite shocking and mind boggling to say the least.

We took her in for her checkup and told her doctor we wanted to try and get her off some medications, at the very least reduce where possible. We simply want our Mom to have the best quality of life that is left. We explained that we weaned her off the Statin as we felt the risk outweighed the benefits for her — at 84 my mom’s cholesterol is a low 145, she weighs a mere 120 lbs, and her lifestyle has improved greatly from 2005 when she started with Statins. She’s on other heart meds and also on Metformin for decades now, but no longer has risk factors for diabetes and we felt it was ridiculous to keep taking it. Sounds reasonable enough to monitor her blood sugar and go from there!

The doctor took all this to mean that we were questioning her ability as a doctor and flew off the handle at us, in a BIG way, accusing us of sabotaging our Mother’s health – ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ mentality. We explained we wanted what was best for her, that we weren’t wanting to mess with her other heart drugs at this point, but so much of what she takes interacts with the other drugs, and based on symptoms, seem to be the likely cause of her problems, so yes, we want her off drugs, slowly but surely. She insisted our reasoning was off-base, saying it’s science and it’s working. Who were we to question it?! She basically scared my mom into believing she would die without the drugs!

Adding to all that, my Mom has taken calcium her entire life, as directed by her doctors, yet she still has Osteoporosis! She just had an Osteo test done and they’ve told her that her Osteo is now severe and she is at high risk for fracture. Now they want her to have the Reclast injection. They tell her she needs to keep taking her Calcium and Vitamin D3 but no mention of Magnesium!! Why don’t they address the fact that she’s been on calcium her whole life and it didn’t help!?

So, with all this, even though the magnesium is helping her we have little faith of getting anywhere without taking matters into our own hands. At this point we are feeling discouraged, and in the end, we must honor our Mother’s wishes. Unfortunately she will listen to the doctor, after all, ‘doctors know best!’ I realize it is difficult for older people to change. Personally I have hopes that the Magnesium will continue to make positive changes that may force the doctor to reconsider. There’s still hope, but honestly, sometimes I wish we were living on another planet!”

TAKE ACTION: What can you do about all this craziness. I suggest you go to Medscape.com and sign up as a free member and put the titles of the noncompliance articles into the search function and WRITE YOUR COMMENTS ABOUT EXACTLY WHY PEOPLE ARE NONCOMPLIANT WITH THEIR WORTHLESS DRUGS! Maybe more doctors will get the message! As for you and your family members, please avail yourself of the information I’ve learned over the past 45 years studying natural medicine.

Weight Loss Wisdom

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, January 19, 2014
This is the year of the health summit! I’m a presenter in five of them so far in 2014.The Ultimate Weight Loss Success Summit runs from Monday January 20 until February 15, 2014 with new speakers every day. My presentation is on January 24th. Just click on the link and sign up, for free, and every day you will be emailed a link to the interviews. In those 26 days, you will find many strategies you can put to use in your desire to balance your weight.During my talk I referenced an article I wrote for Natural News. Please read: Magnesium – The Weight Loss Cure. The title was “tongue-in-cheek” until I realized how accurate it was.Magnesium isn’t the only mineral that’s important to the body, but it is the most important, especially my magnesium, called ReMag. After magnesium come iodine, selenium, manganese, molybdenum and zinc. This grouping supports the thyroid, but each mineral assists the body in many remarkable ways. Another six minerals – boron, calcium, chromium, copper, potassium and sodium make up ReMyte to support bones, adrenals, prostate and innumerable other functions in the body.The other major aspect of weight loss is getting your yeast under control.  I’ve written extensively about yeast. You can google my name and yeast for more information. You can also go to The Yeast Connection website for more information.

Book Review: On Amazon about The Magnesium Miracle: “This Book Saved My Life. I have been suffering with migraine headaches for a long time. The pain was becoming unbearable. I was getting concerned that I was going to become disabled. I happened upon a blog post while I was researching natural cures for migraines. Someone had mentioned this book and how magnesium had changed their life. I thought what the heck and bought the book. Within a week of using magnesium, my migraines were cut in half. Now after just a few short months. My migraines are gone. I mean it, they are gone! And I’ve also noticed a general calmness now that I haven’t felt in I don’t know how long. I strongly encourage everyone to read this book. It could save your life or the life of someone your love.”

Just in time to add to the outrage expressed in the 3rd Edition of my Death by Modern Medicine book comes a provocative headline “Killer Guidelines” in my Medscape mail alerting me to an article in Forbes called “Medicine or Mass Murder: Guideline Based on Discredited Research May Have Caused 800,000 Deaths in Europe Over the Last 5 Years.”It seems that European guidelines to give everyone beta blockers to prevent heart symptoms during any type of surgery has lead to many unnecessary deaths. The original paper, studying the problem found data was faked to create the guidelines and there were at least 10,000 deaths each year from the inappropriate use of beta blockers. Further research published Jan 3, 2014 in the European Heart Journal under the title Research Failure Can Result In Lost Lives estimates as many as 800,000 people in Europe over the last 5 years were killed by these inappropriate guidelines.Researchers say the number of lives lost “is so large that the only context in the last 50 years comes from the largest scale professional failures in the political sphere.” Forbes says that “The 800,000 deaths are comparable in size to the worst cases of genocide and mass murder in recent history.”The Forbes article ended with the following “There is, it has now become clear, a general lack of concern and response to evidence of scientific fraud and misconduct. Journal editors, deans, department chairs, and others seem more concerned with protecting the reputation of their respective institutions than aggressively upholding the integrity of science and research.”

I read the EHJ paper online but one hour later, I could no longer access it! I wanted to quote the part where the main concerns expressed seemed to be for the humiliating blow to so-called scientific research but nothing said about the incredible number of lives lost. Of course, I wondered why it was pulled.

My message? Magnesium deficiency is often the underlying causes of heart disease and is a natural calcium channel blocker, beta blocker, statin, ACE Inhibitor and diuretic without the harmful side effects. Giving magnesium before and during surgery will save lives, not extinguish them like this beta blocker fiasco.

More than Magnesium: After a recent blog, someone reminded me that tachycardia can also be due to underlying psychological problems. She said: “I was in my late thirties when I began to get tachycardia. I had 3 children, a husband, a mother and I was taking care of all of them.  After suffering symptoms for a few months I put on my thinking cap.  We were middle class, ate well and lived well so I knew it was not a physical ailment.  I sat with the tachycardia day after day and began monitoring what was going on psychologically.  I went through all known problems and finally got down to my mother.  The minute I realized the fear I had of her the palpitations stopped.  A few days later I decided to test this revelation.  I sat down on the couch and thought of my mother and the palpitations started.  I started to laugh.  The culprit was emotional. Once the fear was understood it died and I never had another twinge. This really elevated my understanding of the mind/body system.”

When Magnesium Makes Me Worse
is a blog I did Oct 11, 2012. It’s really worth reading to understand how the best way to take magnesium. I’ve updated it many times since it was first published.

Balancing Adrenals and Thyroid is the most instructive blog for the mega-stressed-out individual to help focus on where to begin your healing journey.

Magnesium in the Media

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, January 10, 2014

It’s been a busy media month and a busy year. Let me list the various events I’ve participated in so you can keep learning about magnesium and minerals and RnA Drops and their interaction with yeast, thyroid, adrenals and sex hormones.

Jan 9, 2014: Magnesium: The Miracle Mineral on Red Ice Creations: Radio 3Fourteen. This is a great interview and I even got to speak about the amazing properties of RnA Drops. I imagine I’ll be back on the show for a more in depth discussion. You can also view a youtube video, Magnesium – Unsung Hero of Health of that audio interview created by Ginney Almighty, my cohost of Live! with Dr. Carolyn Dean.

January 7, 2014: This was a new experience for me. It’s a “Live Chat: Resolve to Lose Weight” on Canada.com with typed responses. It turns out I was “up against” a couple of Registered Dieticians who spouted erroneous diet solutions such as: Drink Diet Beverages, Don’t avoid sugar, gluten and dairy! which of course I had to counter. The host ignored the fist fight in the corner, but the words are still there on the site for you to scan! The chat appears on Postmedia’s newspaper websites (including the Vancouver Sun, Edmonton Journal, Montreal Gazette, Ottawa Citizen and several others) as well as on canada.com.

December 29, 2013: The Ultimate Women’s Health Summit is ending soon, so be sure and get in there and register to listen to all 27 guest speakers. My talk on magnesium was on Dec 29.

Dec 8, 2013: Magnesium: The Missing Link to Better Health has over 286,000 views and over 11,000 Facebook forwards. Keep viewing and keep forwarding and keep saving lives. The article is translated into Spanish as well.

March 20, 2013: if you still haven’t had enough magnesium, listen to my 3-hour Coast to Coast AM radio appearance with George Noory.

Scary Stories from Allopathic Medicine
1. A doctor from a prestigious medical school, who is about to retire said the way medicine is today, she would never want to be a doctor if she was just starting out now. Her practice was told by insurance companies that they had to see a patient every 10 minutes because they were spending too much time talking to patients and not writing enough prescriptions.

2. If you have “never been well” since surgery, consider that the inhaled anesthetic used, such as Desflurane, may contain fluoride molecules and bind up the majority of your magnesium. What’s the treatment – take lots of magnesium and get your Magnesium RBC levels up to 6.0-6.5mg/dL. Order the test from www.requestatest.com for $49.00.

3. 70% of the American population is on at least one medication and that medication is very likely draining their magnesium and they will never know…unless someone tells them!

Ultimate Bernie Siegel & A Makeover

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Thursday, January 2, 2014

Today, Bernie Siegel took the stage at The Ultimate Women’s Health Summit. Sign up and you’ll be sent an email with the URL to attend the archive of this free lecture and all the ones from the previous week. I appeared on Day 3 and that audio is still available. Also, most speakers have bonus gifts to share. There are 27 guest speakers with 2 speakers on the virtual podium every day. Please join now and support your own health.

The makeover that I’ll share was inspired by my Dec 28, 2013 post on Balancing Adrenals & Thyroid. A 47-year old woman with 6 children ages 18-5 wrote me about her anxiety and panic attacks, daily heart palpitations and 3 tachycardia episodes over the last 2 years. All the doctors could find was low iron. She said that 3 different cardiologists said there was nothing wrong with her heart but she must have an “inclination toward tachycardia and beta blockers should take care of it.” She did not want to be on drugs so early in her life but she said she goes to bed every night afraid and is afraid every day. She said she just began to take magnesium, calcium, Vitamin D, 5000iu due to deficiency, and Vitamin K. She also recently changed her diet and is trying to stick to a lean protein, vegetables, seeds and nuts.

I was pretty shocked by this story, especially doctors medicating an “inclination to tachycardia!” Here is what I wrote back about what I would personally do.

1. If I had 6 children, my thyroid would be low and that might not show up on blood tests.
2. When one mineral (iron) is low, most of them are usually low.
3. When magnesium is low, anxiety, panic attacks, palpitations and tachycardia occur.
4. Taking more than 1,000 iu a day of Vit D depletes magnesium.
5. Taking calcium depletes magnesium.
6. Full Disclosure: The minerals I take and recommend are my own. ReMag for magnesium and ReMyte for multiple minerals including the 6 minerals that the thyroid needs to function properly and minerals for adrenal support.
7. I take 1/2 tsp three times a day of ReMag but needed 1 tsp three times a day at the beginning to get rid of my heart palpitations and leg cramps. After two months I only needed the 1/2 tsp three times a day.
8. I take 1/2 tsp three times a day of ReMyte, which got me off Armour thyroid meds.
9. For the adrenals I also take 1/4 tsp sea salt in every pint of drinking water and drink 1/2 my body weight in ounces of water per day.
10. If you have more questions google my name and the question and I’ve most likely written about it.

UPCOMING MEDIA: Join me on a Live Chat called Resolve to Lose Weight Jan 7, 2014 at 11am PST.
