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!!!

Mahalo everyone for reading my blogs and spreading the word about health and magnesium.

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.

Why Worry about Radiation?

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, November 8, 2013

On Facebook someone recently asked me how to deal with radiation from Fukushima. I blogged about Radiation Therapies and Alternatives for Disease and Radiation shortly after Fukushima and I’m still of the opinion that Clay and Magnesium Baths are a great defense against radiation.

But is the radiation from Fukushima that dangerous?

As usual, I have a contrary opinion to most people who are terrified of radiation. I am in agreement with Paul Lavely a Radiation and Radiation Risk expert. (Paul offers his email address for interested parties: pjcrs@pacbell.net). Paul told me that “UC Berkeley’s nuclear engineering department has monitored radioactive materials reaching the west coast from Japan. They report little above the lower limit of detection. Risk level is Essentially zero. However, let’s assume that the dose reaching California from Japan is 1 mRem per person (1 chest x-ray is about 5 mRem) AND the annual background radiation is 300 mRem. Therefore over a lifetime of 70 years we have an increase from 21,000 mRem to 21,001. I repeat, there is no risk.”

Paul went on to say that if people really want to decrease their risk for disease, they should stop smoking, lose weight, exercise and stop worrying about minutia.

Personally, I’m not interested in spending my life being fearful of something that may not even be a problem. It’s becoming painfully obvious to many that the more your worry about something the more possibility that you simply attract that negative scenario into your life.

But if you want to take action and keep your body in top working condition and assist your body in dealing with radiation or any other toxins, I still recommend LL’s Magnetic Clay and Magnesium Flakes. Since I posted two years ago on Radiation Therapies, I’ve found many articles on the internet recommending calcium bentonite clay as a natural radiation detox. I’ve also spoken to Japanese magnesium researchers who say magnesium prevents radiation damage. Magnesium is a powerful antioxidant.

I had been taking a Clay and Magnesium baths every day for ages, but then I got busy writing 4 books and dropped my baths. What happened? I noticed I developed armpit odor that had been eliminated with my baths! I wrote about this in Clay and Magnesium Baths Banish Body Odor.

So, it’s obvious that my baths are helping my body to detoxify by pulling out toxins and without my baths I go back to having to eliminate my own toxins. Of course there are many other external ways to detox: Saunas, baking soda and sea salt in the bath but, for me, the Clay and Magnesium baths are very easy to do and a great way to relax. (For the Clay portion, I blend up ½ cup of LL’s Natural Clay in a blender and pour into my bath. Thus there is no danger of clay clogging your drains. Then I add 2 cups of Magnesium Flakes.)

For internal detox, I take RnA Drops every day to make perfect cells that can handle radiation and ReAline (a glutathione precursor with methylated B vitamins) to “clean out the trash.” You can read several blogs about RnA Drops: “RnA Drops: It’s the RNA Not the DNA!” and “RnA Drops Tribute Show.” For more about RnA Drops and all the Completement Formulas, listen and/or call in to my weekly radio show “Live with Dr. Dean” on Achieve Radio every Monday at 4pm PST.

Antibiotic Damage Requires Antioxidants That Are Banned from Hospitals

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Saturday, November 2, 2013

What follows is a story woven by three recent articles showing the continuing decline in American medicine and health care.

In a July, 2013 article in Science News, titled “New Insights Into How Antibiotics Damage Human Cells Suggest Novel Strategies for Making Long-Term Antibiotic Use Safer”, researchers admit that therapeutic levels of antibiotics can cause oxidative stress that can damage DNA, enzyme systems, proteins and cell membranes in human cells. But they say the good news is that these effects can be alleviated by antioxidants.

The study tested three antibiotics ciprofloxacin, ampicillin, kanamycin that are known to cause oxidative stress in human cells. The safe zone for these drugs lasted for only six hours and by day four, human cell mitochrondria are malfunctioning.

Mitochondria are “cellular power plants” generating most of the body’s energy called ATP. The mitochondria also take part in cell signaling, cell differentiation, cell death and control the cell cycle and cell growth. Longer than 4 days and levels of the body’s own antioxidant, glutathione, begins to decline.

The researchers say there are two solutions. One is to go back to bacteriostatic antibiotics that stop bacteria from replicating but don’t kill them (and in the process kill human cells). The second solution is to use antioxidants to help undo the damage that bactericidal antibiotics cause. Magnesium, selenium, vitamins A, C, and E are the major supplemental antioxidants. Never is there any talk of using alternatives to antibiotics such as you will find in my Future Health Now Encyclopedia.

Magnesium is my top choice as antioxidant and when you consider the facts, antibiotics cause magnesium depletion. Magnesium is a necessary factor in ATP production; of the 10 enzymatic steps involved in making ATP, magnesium is required for 6 of them. Magnesium is required for the production of glutathione. Also, drugs deplete magnesium; Cipro is the worst offender of the three named in this study because it contains fluoride molecules which irreversibly bind magnesium making it unavailable in the body

But here’s the kicker on the supplement front. This story made headlines in Forbes magazine on October 18, 2013: “Children’s Hospital Of Philadelphia Bans Dietary Supplements From Its Pharmacy.” Right when supplements are being acknowledged as being lifelines to people on antibiotics, hospitals are removing supplements from their formularies.

Some of you may know, this is exactly what Codex Alimentarius was designed to do. I wrote about it in 2005 in an article called “Kiss Your Vitamins Goodbye” and in my Death by Modern Medicine: Seeking Safe Solutions book. Dietary supplements are being regulated world wide to make sure they do not reach therapeutic levels that could interfere with drug therapy. But instead of drug companies saying they don’t want supplements to compete with their toxic drugs, supplements are being labeled dangerous and should be banned! But, I guarantee you will see these supplements return soon enough when drug companies figure out how to patent them, make them prescription items and charge exorbitant fees for them.

Add to this overwhelming travesty the recent LA Times report that “Science Has Lost Its Way, Costing All Of Us.” The LA Times reports that most scientific research is false. A few years ago, scientists at the biotech firm Amgen analyzed the results of 53 landmark papers in cancer research and blood biology that Amgen was investing in. Of the 53 landmark papers evaluated, only six papers, or 11 percent, proved valid.

What is the take-home message here? Medicine and drug companies are in the business of making a profit, not health, leaving you responsible for your own health and your own health care. My aim is to Educate Not Medicate.

Dr. Dean’s Supplement Recommendations

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Wednesday, October 23, 2013

People ask me all the time what supplements I take. After 45+ years of research, I’ve created the Completement Formulas. There are 4 Completement Formulas to which I add homemade Liposomal Vitamin C, Green Powder and a Vit D, A, K combination but I start with water and sea salt.

Here are the details.

1) Water Intake Guidelines: ½ your body weight (in pounds) in ounces of water. If you weigh 150 lbs you will drink 75 ounces. Sea salt – 1/4-1/2 tsp of sea salt in every quart of drinking water – to one of those bottles add your ReMag and ReMyte.

2) Magnesium: ReMag – in picometer ionic form for superior cellular absorption.

3) 12 Minerals: ReMyte – in picometer ionic form for superior cellular absorption.

4) Detox: ReAline: Methylated B Vitamins and two sulfur amino acids: l-taurine and dl-methionine the precursor to glutathione.

5) B Vitamins in ReAline: Methylated B Vitamins – folate, methylcobalaminer (B12), pyridoxyl-5-phosphate, riboflavin-5-phosphate are important for the nervous system and the adrenals glands, acting as cofactors for hundreds of enzyme reactions in the body. (ReAline does not (as yet) have thiamine- which can be found in whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, eggs, beef, liver, pork.

6) RnA Drops – Creation of Perfect Cells
Products 1-4 can be found at the RnA ReSet website, books on ReMag and ReMyte can be downloaded under the FAQs.

7) Vitamin D, A, K2: 20-30 minutes of sun per day and/or Blue Ice Royal from Green Pastures for a proper balance of vitamin D, vitamin A and vitamin K and essential fatty acids. I take one capsule twice per day.

8) Essential Fatty Acids: Wild Salmon, Freshly ground flax seeds and Blue Ice Royal.

9) Probiotics: Prescript Assist is the only probiotic that worked and continues to work for me. See my blog about Soil-Based Probiotics.

10) Vitamin C Complex – Food based organic  from Grown by Nature. Dosage 1 or 2 per day, with or without food. (Use Code gbn123 for 20% discount.) Or, you can make your own Vitamin C.

11) Vitamin C Complex in Liposomal form: There is a new “fad” in the supplement world to mix ascorbic acid with lecithin. It’s called Liposomal Vitamin C. Mixing nutrients with fat-soluble lecithin helps absorption through fatty cell membranes. However ascorbic acid is not Vitamin C complex it’s just one of the 12 compounds that make up Vitamin C complex. Instead of purchasing a liposomal ascorbic acid supplement, you can make a much more effective and less expensive compound using rose hip powder, which gives you the whole Vitamin C complex. I thank Sue, who is a T-Tapp trainer for her Liposomal Vitamin C Recipe.

a.  3 TBSP of non GMO soy lecithin granules dissolved in 1 cup of very warm purified water. (Purchased from Vitacost.)

b.  2 TBSP of Rosehip powder dissolved in half a cup of warm purified water. (Purchased from Vitacost.)

c.  When the two solutions are dissolved individually (a few hours at room temperature) put them in a blender and mix well. (I leave the two jars in the fridge overnight, they dissolve so well I don’t need to blend them.)

d. Then, put the blended solution in an ultrasound jewelry cleaner for 30 mins. Watch the video below to learn more. I purchased my jewelry cleaner from Amazon.

e. Use glass jars.

Dosage is 2 TBSP (1 ounce) per day. The best time to take liposomal Vitamin C is in the morning on an empty stomach or several times a day if you are treating an acute condition.

YouTube on Liposomal Vitamin C: Making Liposomal Vitamin C

12) Any other nutrients that I may require I feel are covered in my Green drink formula that I make myself from: equal parts of Barley green powder, Wheat grass powder, Alfalfa powder and Maca powder and one half part of Spirulina powder and Chlorella powder that I get from VitaCost.com. VitaCost also has an Organic Green Powder mix that I often use. I mix 2 TBSP of my green formula with 4 TBSP of the good-tasting Whey Too Good protein powder for my breakfast.

Turning Off the RNA Cholesterol Gene!

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, October 6, 2013
Rant Alert!!   Hold onto your hats, people, the proverbial crap is about to hit the fan with the latest efforts of the pharmaceutical industry. Even though cholesterol is being shunted aside as The Cause of heart disease in favor of Inflammation, medical research marches on. NOW they want to mess with your RNA. They probably heard that my RnA Drops effectively create new, perfect cells so they decided that’s the way to go. But typically, instead of enhancing RNA, they decided to turn off the RNA gene that makes LDL cholesterol!My first reaction was to gasp at the level of hubris, arrogance and stupidity that goes into such thinking – but look what they have already done with GMOs!I wrote the following a decade ago in my Death by Modern Medicine book.“Genetic engineering, and gene therapy, are major avenues that drug companies and modern medicine are pursuing to develop new lines of revenue as more and more drugs are recalled because of the high rate of side effects. When scientists on the Human Genome Project claimed that identifying all the genes in the body would allow us to have complete control over our bodies, everybody believed this Star Trek fantasy.In 1990, Dr. French Anderson, Director of Gene Therapy at the University of Southern California Medical School, performed the first human gene therapy experiment. Unfortunately, the procedure, on a young four‐year old girl was successful. Unfortunate, because the first experience was such a huge success, it created a very optimistic view of the procedure. By 1996, according to Dr. Anderson, gene experiments in over 3,000 participants mostly ended in tragedy. Ten years later, the evidence for gene therapy solving all our problems is still remote.”

When the Human Genome Project found only one third of the genes they predicted, the scientists realized that genes don’t control individual body processes but work synergistically with epigenetic factors in the environment including vitamins, minerals, diet, stress, toxins etc. But instead of pursuing the study of these things that turn genes on and off they continue to declare that faulty genes can create fatal disease like cancer. This just directs people to chop off body parts instead of learning how to make their genes work as God and nature intended.

Turning off a gene involved with cholesterol metabolism may sound promising to scientists. But GENES DO MORE THAN ONE THING!! They are multitaskers and they are affected by their environment in a way that has never been studied. So, I’m back to wishing I had continued in Honors Biology-majoring in Genetics so I could have isolated the STUPIDITY gene and removed it from medical scientists. With the public backlash against antibiotics, cholesterol drugs and vaccines, I’m afraid the focus will be on genetic “solutions” to disease and drug companies will continue to be the most lucrative industry on the planet.

My advice is to stay far, far away from anything to do with synthetic genetic manipulation but instead create perfect cells with a safe, food-based formula called RnA Drops.

Diabetes Drug Deaths

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Saturday, September 28, 2013

You would think a drug is put in place to increase your chances for a longer life. Not the case in many drugs, including a class of diabetic drugs called sulfonylureas.

A recent study shows that these drugs significantly increase the risk for death in patients with type 2 diabetes when compared with treatment with metformin. The combination of metformin and a sulfonylurea was also associated with a significantly increased risk for death when compared with combination therapy with metformin and a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor.

You may notice that drug companies no longer compare a drug to placebo in their trials, but compare it to another drug. That’s because most of the time a placebo will outperform a drug! Seeing those results over and over, surely the public would eventually say “Lord Suffering Cats, why am I taking a drug when taking nothing works better?”

Dr. Craig Curry, at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) 2013, where these studies were unveiled said “I am bewildered that (sulfonylurea) is still being used. People should avoid using a drug where the balance of evidence, at the moment, demonstrates that it kills people.” Yes, that’s right Craig. So, why, when the evidence shows that a drug kills people do doctors go on prescribing it?

In my Death by Modern Medicine: Seeking Safe Solutions book I present studies showing that doctors only recognize drug side effects FOUR PERCENT of the time.  And medical mishaps and adverse drug reactions are covered up like a rug. Only about TEN PERCENT see the light of day. A recent article in Scientific American reviews the data on Medical Mistakes and finds that it’s not 98,000 a year like the IOM reported in 1999; it’s not 180,000 in Medicare patients alone as reported in 2010 by the Inspector General for Health and Human Services, but more like 440,000 patients per year. My numbers are closer to the truth at about 900,000 unnecessary deaths annually.

There was another chilling revelation in EASD. Cardiologists railed against the Diabetologists saying “Heart Failure Is Killing Your Diabetes Patients.” The “attention” that the Cardiologists demand is in the form of a bucket list of drugs to take to prevent heart disease, diuretics to prevent high blood pressure, and statins to prevent cholesterol.

Nowhere in the articles is there any mention that one of the medical signs of diabetes is low magnesium or that magnesium treats high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Do they not know that the highest levels of magnesium are found in the heart? And no one mentions that most drugs drain the body of magnesium and just hasten heart failure. Sure, there is more to it than just magnesium, but for Crying Out Loud, please start somewhere and do it with a nutrient as necessary and as safe as magnesium.

Doctors have limited their view of health and disease to diagnosing disease symptoms and treating with drugs. But increasingly they are using drugs in a misguided and fatal effort to prevent disease. They will never succeed. And in the meantime people are dying. The doctors know people are dying, they study and enumerate the deaths, but they seem to be utterly blind to any solution other than More Drugs that Kill More People.

One reason why blinders are worn by many doctors became evident in the Disclosure documents of these presenters. Each speaker had a long list of drug companies (some had more than a dozen) from which they receive funding. Obviously, “Do not bite the hand that feeds you.” has become more important than the Hippocratic Oath “First Do No Harm.”

Kidneys Need Magnesium

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, September 22, 2013

Every day I receive emails or read on the Magnesium Advocacy Facebook page that people are afraid to take magnesium because of kidney disease. Even alternative medicine practitioners parrot the safety warning that ‘People with kidney disease should not take magnesium except by physician’s orders.

Let’s be clear about this warning: It should say, as I do in The Magnesium Miracle under Contraindications: “With kidney failure there is an inability to clear magnesium from the kidneys.”

However, it seems there is a fine line between kidney disease and kidney failure and doctors believe that every human being is in Pre-kidney failure. And with any abnormality in BUN, Creatinine, Glomerular Filtration Rate or Protein in the urine the patient is diagnosed with one of the progressive stages of kidney disease or kidney failure! And with any hint of kidney disease, doctors tell patients to stay away from magnesium!

Please read my article on Natural News called: Kidney Disease Requires Magnesium. In it I make the case that people with kidney disease must have magnesium but it has to be in a bioavailable form. I wrote this article two years ago before I knew about ReMag. This form of magnesium is 100 percent absorbed at the cellular level and can be used for people with kidney disease, as long as they follow their intake with Magnesium RBC blood testing at www.requestatest.com.

Here are two testimonials on kidney disease and magnesium from the Magnesium Advocacy Group Facebook Page.

The first is from a client of mine –  female, age 40 who says:

“I know there are many out there struggling with some sort of kidney disease. I have a “genetic kidney disease”. I am monitored every six months by a nephrologist who doesn’t agree with my magnesium regimen. She actually doesn’t know how much I’m on because I think her head would explode if she knew.

I saw her yesterday and here are the results on a small nutshell.

1) My BP was 110/80 and I went off my BP med 4 months ago

2) My BUN has dropped from 34 (since I started the magnesium last December) to 27 (24 is the top of the range…so I’m getting closer!)

3) My creatinine is 1.8 which she’s not really worried about because I have a lot of muscle mass.

4) The test that measures how much protein I’m spilling into my urine, the range is 0-200. A couple years ago it was 2500!!! Six months ago, it was 1,000. Yesterday it was 476!!!!! This one has me the most excited!!!

Here’s the funny part. She actually sat there staring at me and mentioned 3 other drugs she’d like to put me on to help me!!!!! HAHAHAHAHA!!! She actually thinks she’s helping me!!! This makes me giggle!!”

The second story is from someone reporting on her friend.

“My friend had a liver transplant in 1998, then he had another kidney transplant in January of 2002. He was told that the anti-rejection medicine he took for the liver transplant causes damage to the kidneys and that his new kidney would not last more than 9 years, before he would need a third transplant. Well, thankfully we learned about the importance of magnesium and started supplementing over a year ago. He is also a type 2 diabetic. Ever since he started taking magnesium supplements, his lab work has improved. He has actually reversed his kidney failure and was recently removed from the transplant list! Also, his A1C, the last 6 months has been normal and he has been able to decrease the amount of insulin he was taking. His highest A1C was 9.6. The Nephrologist he has been seeing has ignored the information he gave her about the magnesium helping to make the difference in his kidney failure. However, his prior transplant doctor was so impressed by his improved lab work, he is trying the magnesium for himself! It has been almost 12 years since his second transplant and his creatinine is lower than it has been, in over 2 years! I am also a testament to the “Miracle of Magnesium”! It has really helped me eliminate prescribed medications I was taking for chronic pain, caused by herniated lumbar discs and disease of the sciatic nerve root, which included 2 antidepressants, strong narcotics, and an anti-seizure medication for neuropathy. My doctor prescribed an anti-inflammatory, but I haven’t even needed to take it, in over 2 months!”

You obviously have to make your own decision about taking magnesium if you have kidney disease. If you do take magnesium be sure and get your blood tested regularly. Maybe you can educate your doctors about magnesium as your health improves.
