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.

Balancing Adrenals and Thyroid

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Saturday, December 28, 2013

Here is the response from someone on an online forum when I posted my Adrenal Fatigue and Thyroid Insufficiency excerpt from my ReMyte book (Invisible Minerals Part I – Multiple Minerals).

“Dr. Dean, thank you so much. In over 15 years of struggling with hypothyroid, adrenal fatigue, and fibromyalgia, and going to multiple doctors, I have never heard such a complete picture of how the thyroid, adrenals, and sex hormones work together and how to repair them.” You can download a free copy of this book and its companion Invisible Minerals Part II – Magnesium about ReMag from the RnA Drops website under the Knowledge Base/Free Ebooks.

But first, I want to remind you that today, December 29, 2013, I’ll be on The Ultimate Women’s Health Summit. It’s an end-of-the year symposium that will help you make great health choices for 2014 – and it’s free. There are 24 guest speakers with 2 speakers on the virtual podium every day. Please join now and support your own health.

Adrenal Fatigue and Thyroid Insufficiency
Minerals play a huge part in the rehabilitation of two major hormone systems in the body. The three major hormone systems in the body: adrenals, thyroid and sex hormones, I refer to as a three-sided stool. When one of the legs of the stool is shortened, it affects the other two. This can be seen on blood testing; when cortisol levels go up, thyroid hormone levels go down.

There is an ongoing debate among natural medicine practitioners about what comes first, adrenal fatigue or thyroid insufficiency and what do you treat first? I think it’s a moot point because they are often not looking at one of the main causes of both conditions – mineral deficiency, which means you can treat the two conditions simultaneously.

The standard treatment for thyroid, even for natural medicine practitioners, is to give thyroid replacement therapy. It may be the more natural form of Armour thyroid, but it’s still treating with hormones instead of treating the reason the thyroid became weakened in the first place. In my experience, most low thyroid conditions are caused by mineral deficiency.

Treating disease in a linear format, one thing at a time, is not consistent with the way the body works, where everything is interrelated and works synergistically.

It’s usually agreed that the most common reasons for adrenal fatigue and dysfunction are poor diet, mineral deficiency, intense emotional stress, chronic inflammation and an underactive thyroid. But what’s causing the inflammation and underactive thyroid, and what diet is feeding into the problem?

Since I’ve worked closely with Candida (yeast) overgrowth for decades, I think a poor diet of refined sugars, high gluten wheat and processed dairy feeds yeast. Diet, antibiotics and cortisol from acute and chronic emotional stress causes yeast overgrowth.

There are 178 different yeast toxins that are produced by yeast in their life cycle. These toxins are absorbed into the bloodstream and lead to a chronic inflammatory state that can cause arthritis, chronic fatigue and pain. Magnesium and molybdenum help detoxify yeast toxins. Some yeast toxins can directly block thyroid function and possibly adrenal function as well. The best anti-inflammatory agent available to the body is magnesium. When magnesium is depleted because of being overused, adrenal fatigue symptoms continue unabated.

The treatment for adrenal fatigue begins with sodium, which is vitally important for proper adrenal function. If your adrenal glands are weak or depleted as indicated by exhaustion, low blood pressure and chronic stress, there is a combined sodium and magnesium depletion. If you start taking large doses of magnesium without replacing sodium, you may feel even worse. I recommend ¼ tsp of sea salt in every pint of drinking water. How much water? Half your body weight in ounces of water.

The best diet for the adrenals is a yeast-free diet avoiding sugar, wheat and dairy to cut down on the body-wide inflammation that yeast produces. Magnesium will also treat inflammation. The adrenals are supported with food-based Vitamin C Complex and Vitamin B Complex. Under the Resources Link on the Dr Carolyn Dean website, I recommend Grown by Nature and Natural Vitality brands and give you links for discounts.

The other key ingredient to adrenal health is plenty of rest. In one of my blogs I call it “Lying Down Therapy.” Please don’t think you can “tough it out” and just “muscle your way through” adrenal fatigue. That’s the worst thing you can do. You may require 8-10 hours of sleep and naps to fully recover. It’s extremely important to take care of your adrenals because they are responsible for the production of more than 50 hormones that are essential for proper body function.

Extra sleep, rest, sea salt and high dose magnesium work to help alleviate adrenal fatigue. But it’s also important to face the cause of your stress and realize your body may be producing physical symptoms as a result of this stress.

Adrenal stress causes loss of minerals, across the board, that have to be replaced. I recommend ReMag for magnesium and ReMyte for its 12 minerals. As noted above, I also recommend ¼ tsp of sea salt in each pint of drinking water for the dozens of trace minerals in salt. If someone isn’t able to eat enough greens, I recommend potassium broth. You can find the recipe for this broth under the heading Potassium. (in my ReMyte book).

Some practitioners suggest that you have to take DHEA and pregnenolone for adrenal repair but I have some more simple suggestions. Instead of immediately jumping to hormone replacement, let’s use the proper building blocks to make our own hormones. For example, transdermal magnesium using ReMag in a spray bottle will stimulate DHEA receptors. You need cholesterol to make hormones like pregnenolone and for cholesterol you need good fats such as olive oil and coconut oil.

The third requirement for making your own hormones is properly functioning enzyme systems. And we know that in order for enzyme systems to function properly you need lots of bioavailable magnesium.

An underactive thyroid, as one of the triggers for adrenal fatigue, has its own list of causes that includes thyroid receptor blockage due to yeast toxins. So, the diet for underactive thyroid is the same as for adrenal fatigue. Six minerals in ReMyte that support thyroid function include: iodine, selenium, magnesium, manganese, molybdenum and zinc.

The sex hormones, are also supported by minerals and the proper function of the thyroid and adrenals. DHEA stimulation by transdermal magnesium will stimulate production of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. I’ve had clients tell me that when they started taking ReMag and ReMyte, their bioidentical hormones started working better.

Exercise Is Better Than Drugs

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Thursday, December 26, 2013
We knew it all along but researchers have finally confirmed that Exercise is better than Drugs.It’s not just that exercise is better but it doesn’t cause harm, like drugs do. The study title reads: “Exercise May Match Medication in Reducing Mortality Associated With Cardiovascular Disease, Diabetes.” Since science can’t come to any conclusions or offer any advice, it’s going to say exercise “may” match medication. So, I’m taking the leap and telling you that exercise is better than drugs.Journalists reporting on this study say that “Researchers may be concentrating so much on pharmaceutical interventions that they downplay or even ignore the health benefits of exercise.” I’ve said the same thing many times. Doctors who don’t exercise and don’t eat properly themselves are the last people to give advice. They also don’t get paid to talk to you about lifestyle interventions so they don’t spend any time on it.

Here are the findings of this BMJ study published October 1, 2013. They performed an analysis of previous exercise and drug trials and compared the two and found that:

1. Exercise and drug interventions may provide similar benefits in the prevention of heart disease and diabetes.

2. Exercise was more effective than drug treatment among patients recovering from stroke.

3. But diuretics were more effective than exercise in heart failure.

About the third point. If a person uses the right kinds of magnesium and electrolytes (ReMag and ReMyte) they can avoid heart failure. And ReMag and ReMyte along with exercise gives you triple protection.

So, dust off your health club membership, start walking, swimming, riding a bicycle, dancing, doing tai chi or yoga. Anything that makes your body move more is exercise and it’s going to keep you well. I walk, swim, use an exercise bicycle and do T-Tapp every day.

UPCOMING EVENT: Starting tomorrow, December 27, 2013 is The Ultimate Women’s Health Summit. An end-of-the year symposium that will help you make great health choices for 2014 – and it’s free. There are 24 guest speakers with 2 speakers on the virtual podium every day. My talk is on December 29th and it’s on my favorite topic – Magnesium. Please join now and support your own health.

MAGNESIUM RESEARCH: Hidden away the Grand Forks Human Nutrition Research Center (GFHNRC) is Dr. Forrest Nielsen proving every day that magnesium is a miracle. If you search his name on the GFHNRC site, you’ll find he’s done dozens of human studies on minerals, including magnesium. He’s proven that low magnesium is associated with numerous disorders including coronary heart disease, fatigue, hypertension, migraine headaches, sleep disorders, mood disturbances, and osteoporosis.

Holiday Appreciation and Gifts

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Monday, December 23, 2013

I send out thanks and appreciation to everyone as I recap an amazing year!!

A 3-hour Coast to Coast AM radio appearance allowed the message of magnesium to be heard by millions. A video and article – Magnesium: The Missing Link to Better Health has had over 270,000 views. People are telling me that these two pieces of magnesium education, especially the video, are the best way to get their friends and family involved with this important mineral.

Happily, our new RnA Drops Website went Live December 22, 2013! Check it out. It’s quite awesome!

RnA Drops are giving people a new chance at perfect cells and amazing mental/emotional/physical health. ReMag is more powerful and safer than IV magnesium. ReMyte (just released March 22/13) is bringing back people’s thyroids and adrenal glands. ReNew is working miracles on the skin. ReAline is clearing out the trash! They all make great presents. In the meantime, under the Knowledge Base on the site you can download free copies of Invisible Minerals Part I and Part II about ReMag and ReMyte and send them around to your friends and family.

I’m also remodeling my own website. My updated Health Library can be viewed at Organized Wisdom. It contains an outrageous amount of information, almost 600 videos, audios and articles including a new RnA Drops and Completement Formula Link.

If your friends don’t believe the health care system has failed us, I give you – Helke Ferrie, a brilliant medical anthropologist and health writer who is offering her latest book Creative Outrage for free on her website. It describes the plight of millions caught in a system that allows the pharmaceutical industry to create drugs simply for huge profits.

In the New Year you can have a happier time with some basic iON philosophies. Relax & Allow. Would you rather be Happy or Right? Love is not an Emotion, it’s a Force Field. There are lots of websites where you can play with iON: HowIonic; Ginney’s 2012RnARadio Site; Bart’s RnA Drops Blog: Bart’s Interactive Website.

Ultimate Women’s Health Summit

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Wednesday, December 18, 2013
I was recently asked if I would be interested in doing a speaking tour for a new book I’m writing. I thought about it for 2.3 seconds and said – No Thank You! Besides the energy and financial costs involved in traveling around the country, I wondered who has time to go to talks anymore. I know I don’t.I find the best way to pass on health information is via my 2-hour radio show: Live! with Dr. Carolyn Dean. A close second is the health webinars and conferences that I’m often asked to speak at.One such summit begins on December 27, 2013. The Ultimate Women’s Health Summit is an end-of-the year symposium that will help you make great health choices for 2014 – and it’s free. There are 24 guest speakers with 2 speakers on the virtual podium every day. My talk is on December 29th and it’s on my favorite topic – magnesium.

Let me assure you this summit is not simply for entertainment purposes. Taking charge of your health is a serious matter and you want to hear what the experts have to say.

Otherwise you’re faced with mainstream media telling you what the drug companies want you to know about health. I wrote recently that Magnesium Deficiency and Yeast Overgrowth are the main reasons for chronic disease but I said the public is never going to know this because hospitals are now banning vitamins from their formulary.

The latest outrage is the wide promotion of a study that purportedly shows vitamins are useless! Lord Suffering Cats, how can the vitamin and mineral cofactors that are NECESSARY in EVERY METABOLIC PROCESS in our bodies be evil? Unless they interfere with drug sales? Yes, then they are evil.

An op-ed on this study in the New York Times told us to Skip the Supplements. It says supplements are being banned because The Joint Commission responsible for hospital accreditation in the United States requires that dietary supplements be treated like drugs.

So there you have it. We should obtain our vitamins and minerals from our food. But we can’t because our soils are depleted of minerals and contaminated with chemicals that further bind up minerals. And these minerals are now designated as drugs. It’s all over folks, unless you take matters in your own hands.

Although I don’t condone synthetic vitamins or dirt-based minerals, you can absolutely see the difference in people’s health when they take supplements that are well absorbed. For example, the testimonials on ReMag (magnesium) and ReMyte (multimineral) are incredible. The Magnesium Advocacy Group on Facebook has similar outpourings of positive things to say about these minerals.

You are already taking matters in your own hands by reading this blog and sending it to all your friends. You can also go to The Ultimate Woman’s Summit  and register now. You’ll see a list of the other guest speakers and their topics pertaining to your health, which only you can preserve. Take Charge or Take Cover!

Doctors Are The Biggest Drug Users

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Thursday, December 12, 2013

A Medscape email alerted me this week to two important articles that help explain why doctors prescribe so many meds. The reason? Many doctors are abusing and addicted to meds themselves. An October, 2013 survey in the Journal of Addiction Medicine showed 10-15% of doctors will experience a substance abuse disorder in their lifetime. The survey was anonymous but believe me, if that many are admitting a problem, you can double or triple those numbers. After all, how much of addictive behavior is about denial? The prescription drugs most commonly misused were opiates and sedatives but were also associated with use of illegal drugs and alcohol. According to the study participants, 94.5% of whom were men, the drugs were taken to help manage physical pain and emotional problems.

Hot on the heels of that survey was a study of anesthesiology residents, titled “Substance Abuse on the rise in Residents.”

It’s only commonsense that if you are a doctor taking meds to get high or to zone out, you are going to avoid counseling your patients to get off their meds. There’s also the reasoning that I wrote about in Death by Modern Medicine – doctors only recognize drug side effects 4% of the time. So, they seem to have a very biased opinion of the safety of drugs.

Any sane doctor should take you off your meds when you no longer need them. That’s what I was taught in medical school. So it’s shocking to see people being put on life-long medications for no good reason other than – “just in case.”

Maybe some of you will take the advice of a 93-year-old when faced with this question of continuing her medications. This story was reported by a reader of my blog. “My 93-year-old cousin said she was considered “the dietitian” at the hospital when she worked there as a cook. She was tired of going to doctors and feeling like she was always getting a sales pitch for their drugs. After reading your articles and articles by Dr. Blaylock and Dr. Sircus, she told the pharmacist to please send her some magnesium with her medication refill order. They did. Her BP was not what it should be and her heartbeat had not been regular. She checks herself daily at home. She said after one week, the beats were nearly normal. She decided on her own to quit her BP meds! She said she was certain the magnesium was her answer and she did not want the BP meds to interfere with the magnesium. She said her BP went to normal, better than it has been in years and her heartbeat was very good! It has now been two months and she just gave me another good report. She said the shoes she thought she would never wear again, because they were to tight, now slip on with ease!”

Magnesium: The Missing Link to Better Health

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, December 8, 2013
When I was in Chicago June 2013, at the Health Freedom Expo, Dr. Joseph Mercola invited me to do a video interview to update his audience on magnesium. It was just posted today and is receiving a lot of views. Please forward to your Facebook and Twitter friends and spread the word that Magnesium is the Missing Link to Better Health!

Here’s an amazing scientific breakthrough that was sent to me by another magnesium expert, Morley Robbins. In the interview I mention Vitamin D, but it’s such a big topic I just talked about the need to balance it with magnesium and Vitamin K2. The following publication in the British Medical Journal, Magnesium, Vitamin D Status and Mortality gives us a much better understanding of the role of magnesium and Vitamin D.

The researchers say: “Magnesium plays an essential role in the synthesis and metabolism of vitamin D. They conclude that “Our preliminary findings indicate it is possible that magnesium intake alone or its interaction with vitamin D intake may contribute to vitamin D status. The associations between serum 25(OH)D and risk of mortality may be modified by the intake level of magnesium.”Read that conclusion several times. They are saying that Vitamin D status may be due to magnesium! And they also say “Furthermore, the associations of serum 25(OH)D with mortality, particularly due to cardiovascular disease (CVD) and colorectal cancer, were modified by magnesium intake.”

Does this mean that when Vitamin D appears to be working, it could be because you have enough magnesium? I’ve been toying with that very idea recently. Supplemental Vitamin D pulls magnesium out of bones and muscles to make Vitamin D active, in the process magnesium pulled into the blood will be available for the 700-800 enzyme systems that require magnesium.

I certainly know what happens when you don’t have enough magnesium and you take high doses of Vitamin D: you start experience severe magnesium deficiency symptoms. I’ve had people complain of seizures, heart arrhythmia and month-long migraines. So when you take normal doses of Vitamin D (around 1,000iu) and enough magnesium (around 700mg) you can have the best of both because they work synergistically.

I’ve been getting a lot of emails from the Mercola crowd, which I’m sorry but I can’t answer most of them personally – I have zero staff. But I did get this very fun email that I will share.

“Over gratified with your magnificent video. It was so easy to listen to and watch the. Your presentation was clear and simple. Your eye contact is marvelous, perhaps because you have the most beautiful eyes. Your hair is more than cute, your perkiness is an essential ingredient of your personality. Your smile is so healthy and genuine.  Your skin is luscious.  And, great hand gestures. Please do not think I am flirting with you.  I just like giving credit where it’s due.” I told the gentleman that my husband loves hearing these types of compliments because he thinks the same!!!

Science Proves Magnesium Deficiency Can Be Treated with Drugs

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, December 1, 2013

The Nutritional Magnesium Association (NMA) recently published my article, “Magnesium Deficiency Induces Anxiety.” In it I comment on a 2012 study in Neuropharmacology. The study initially sounded promising “Magnesium Deficiency Induces Anxiety and HPA Axis Dysregulation” but then the second part of the title “Modulation by Therapeutic Drug Treatment” made no sense at all.

While it’s good to know that without magnesium, anxiety and hormonal dysregulation occur, instead of simply advising more magnesium, they found a drug that would “treat” magnesium deficiency symptoms! “Suppress” would be a better word to use in this regard. By the way, this study was done in mice, which I think is a waste of research money. They could have found the same results in humans!

You can go to the NMA and read the full article, but here I want to focus on several important points. One is to remind you that many anxiolytics and antidepressants contain fluoride molecules. Prozac contains three fluoride molecules. What’s wrong with fluoride? Fluoride binds magnesium making it unavailable and ineffective. Thus, the dysregulation caused by magnesium deficiency is compounded by the use of magnesium-depleting drugs.

Secondly, I’d like to encourage you to join the Nutritional Magnesium Association (NMA). It’s a nonprofit magnesium educational site, where I serve on the medical board. By increasing the number of people who join the NMA, we can begin to turn the tide of ignorance about this important mineral.

Thirdly, I’d like you all to also join the Magnesium Advocacy Group (MAG) facebook page. Even if you don’t participate, you can search topics that we’ve discussed and learn from other people suffering magnesium deficiency and how they overcame their problems. The site was founded by Morley Robbins, a tireless magnesium advocate. There are almost 5,000 members presently but we want tens of thousands of people to join.

As more people join NMA and MAG, by numbers alone, we show the desire of the public to know more about magnesium and to have less exposure to drugs. The numbers alone will show the anti-nutrient forces that we are not going away!

Speaking of drugs, the chemical content, including fluoride is not the only thing you have to worry about. Look at the inactive ingredients of Tecfidera that a client of mine was prescribed. It’s for MS, an inflammatory condition of the lining of nerves in the brain and central nervous system. What causes inflammation? Chemicals, heavy metals, calcium and a lack of magnesium. So why in the name of all that is holy would a drug to treat an inflammatory condition contain about 16 unnecessary chemicals.

TECFIDERA is provided as hard gelatin delayed-release capsules for oral administration, containing 120 mg or 240 mg of dimethyl fumarate consisting of the following inactive ingredients: microcrystalline cellulose, silicified microcrystalline cellulose, croscarmellose sodium, talc, silica, colloidal silicon dioxide, magnesium stearate, triethyl citrate, methacrylic acid copolymer – Type A, methacrylic acid copolymer dispersion, simethicone (30% emulsion), sodium lauryl sulphate, and polysorbate 80. The capsule shell, printed with black ink, contains the following inactive ingredients: gelatin, titanium dioxide, FD&C blue 1; brilliant blue FCF, yellow iron oxide and black iron oxide.

It amazes me that doctors have become such drug pushers taught to diagnose disease and treat disease symptoms with drugs! Where there is no disease they invent it so they can give a drug to fulfill their mandate!! Here is how one blog reader put it. “I do massages at a nearby resort. One of my clients, a female, 60 years old, in excellent muscular shape, recently had a physical exam with her doctor. She tells me that all her blood-work and physical exam came out perfectly normal. Her doctor told my client that didn’t really matter because she has a genetic pre-disposition for cholesterol problems so they are treating her with a statin for a non-existent dis-ease!!!”

Inventing Diabetes Drugs

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Monday, November 25, 2013

Scientists, in their latest attempt to control your body, want to manipulate the following enzymes to treat diabetes: Calcium /Calcium-modulated Dependent Protein Kinase I and II (CaM kinase II and CaMKII).

Here’s the researchers’ preliminary evidence. In one experiment in obese mice, they found that no matter how CaMKII was knocked out, it led to lower blood glucose levels and lower fasting plasma insulin levels in response to a glucose challenge. They concluded that this enzyme plays an important role in the development of hyperglycemia and hyperinsulinemia in obese mice.

Their recommendation: LETS KILL THIS ENZYME

Here’s my thinking. Any enzyme controlled by calcium is naturally balanced by magnesium. So, if they think CaMKII is malfunctioning, just hit it with magnesium to rebalance it – DON’T KILL IT.

Why is it a BAD idea to Kill CaMKII? Because CaMKII does MUCH more than help to control blood sugar. It is important in learning and memory; necessary for calcium homeostasis and calcium reuptake in heart muscle cells; positive T-cell selection; CD8 T-cell activation; neurotransitter secretion; transcription factor regulation; and glycogen metabolism. Misregulation of CaMKII is linked to deranged myosin phosphorylation (myosins: ATP-dependent proteins creating muscle contraction), imbalanced smooth muscle contraction, heart arrhythmia, Alzheimer’s disease and Angelman Syndrome (a neuro-genetic disorder characterized by severe intellectual and development disability, sleep disturbance, seizures, jerky movements (especially hand-flapping), frequent laughter or smiling, and usually a happy demeanor).

If you know anything about magnesium you know it’s involved with everything in the above paragraph. Imagine me Screaming now  – “Lord Suffering Cats, why are scientists trying to find a drug to KILL this enzyme instead of just using magnesium?” When they do make their drugs to kill this enzyme, I can guarantee they  are going to cause arrhythmia, insomnia, seizures and many more magnesium deficiency symptoms.

It only took me a few moments to find a study showing that “…magnesium depleted rats experience spontaneous epileptiform (seizure) activity and simultaneous changes in CaM kinase II activity.” And another study in 1985 focused on balancing the kinase enzymes with magnesium. They concluded that: “magnesium is an important coherent controller of glycolysis and the Krebs cycle. Many of the glycolytic kinase enzymes are sensitive to Mg2+.”

This scenario reminds me of a 2012 study in Neuropharmacology, it initially sounded promising “Magnesium Induces Anxiety and HPT Axis Dysregulation” but then the second part of the title “Modulation by Therapeutic Drug Treatment” made no sense at all.

I’ve written a paper for the Nutritional Magnesium Association on this study. I’ll let you know when it is published. In the meantime, think about the insanity of treating magnesium-induced anxiety and and hormone dysregulation with antidepressant drugs. What would you use instead? How about MAGNESIUM?

Stuck on Statins

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Monday, November 18, 2013

This morning a client sent the following NY Times article “Risk Calculator for Cholesterol Appears Flawed.” She said it was right up my alley because it was all about Big Pharma and Death by Modern Medicine. She also said her father, a heart doctor and former president of the American Heart Association thought promoting cholesterol as the cause of heart disease was “a lot of nonsensical exaggeration.”

In any disaster – you want to find the cause and eliminate the threat. In the disaster that is heart disease in the U.S., doctors want to blame something. Cholesterol became that something. Now with the newest guidelines for lowering cholesterol, they seem to be saying that everyone is at risk and should be on a statin drug!

When I read the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology guidelines a week ago I saw they gave statins “high marks” in their new cardiac prevention guidelines. But at the same time, they agreed to stop using LDL (the bad cholesterol) levels as a way to guide therapy. Why? Because they found they weren’t reliable.

OK, allow me to translate. The TOP people in heart disease say that it no longer matters if your LDL cholesterol numbers drop to a specific level. BUT you STILL need to take STATINS, even though study after study shows that statins don’t extend life (probably because of their side effects of reducing magnesium). And the side effects of statin drugs (especially the ones containing fluoride) are mounting. Fluoride binds magnesium turning it into magnesium fluoride or selliate, a brittle compound that replaces flexible magnesium in bones and cartilage. That’s probably why statins cause such muscle pain and damage.

And here I thought that cholesterol was becoming a distant memory and the medical community has given up on it and moved on to inflammation as the cause of heart disease. Just google “Cholesterol does not cause heart disease.” and you’ll find all kinds of damning information.

Many of the comments about these guidelines have been negative with talk of withdrawing them. But in the spirit of “I have a small brain and I intend to use it” the creators are not backing down. Here is the latest “The dust-up over the new cardiovascular disease prevention guidelines – already named “Calculator-gate” – prompted the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology to stage a public defense at a hastily assembled press briefing.”

You may think this doesn’t concern you, but trust me when I say, it’s the brave new world of medicine. If medicine says you need statin drugs or diabetes drugs or blood pressure drugs or vaccinations to “prevent” illness, you just may have to pay a fine if you aren’t compliant with what they prescribe. In the meantime, remember to take your magnesium to prevent heart disease and keep your cholesterol, your blood sugar, and your blood pressure under control.
