Fighting off the Madness & Standing up for Hope

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, June 22, 2012

The title of this blog is from a science fiction book that I’m reading but it describes perfectly what the Health Freedom Expo is all about. I just attended the Chicago Expo and I have dozens of stories that I can blog about. But probably the most important one is how dedicated lawyers are working tirelessly to protect our health freedom.

Diane Miller, straight out of law school, successfully helped to defend a Minnesota farmer from charges of practicing medicine without a license. The farmer developed a “cure” for cancer by injecting blood from a sick person into the udder of a pregnant cow and then giving the “immunized” colostrum to that same person to drink. Simple, safe, effective and individualized. But the cures he demonstrated got him into hot water. Instead of studying his method, medicine sought to destroy him. Please read more about Diane Miller and the National Health Freedom Coalition, whose work is to maintain our freedom of choice in health care person-by-person and state-by-state.

Jonathan Emord is a Constitutional Lawyer with the presence and stature of our Founding Fathers. He is the only attorney in history who has defeated the Food and Drug Administration in federal court on six separate occasions His book Restore the Republic is a must-read. I was on the George Noory panel with Jonathan when he told the story about a single-mother whose daughter was diagnosed with osteosarcoma of the kneecap. The surgeon was ready to amputate her whole leg and told the mother she was crazy to think of getting a second opinion because he was the best in his field. He threatened to call Child Services if she did not comply. She fled from his office and found Jonathan who assembled a team of experts. Child Services did get involved and the mother had to go to court to exercise her right to other options. The experts told the Judge that the more prudent path was to do exploratory surgery and determine if the cancer was isolated to the kneecap. If so, the kneecap could be removed and replaced with a prosthesis. Fortunately the Judge decided in favor of the exploratory surgery and a prosthesis was put in place instead of amputation. The girl is now in college and walking around on her own two legs!

Jim Turner has been involved in every major battle concerning food, drug, health, environmental and product-safety matters since the early 1980’s when he worked with Ralph Nader. During his time with Nader he wrote The Chemical Feast: The Nader Report on the Food and Drug Administration and has testified about the dangers of aspartame. Jim was instrumental in the passing of the DSHEA bill that protects our right to dietary supplements. He continues to work non-stop for health freedom through his legal work and his non-profit foundation: Voice for Hope.

Visit and support these lawyers in any way you can. They stand for hope!

The Health Freedom Movement: Alive & Well

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, June 10, 2012

My friend Tim Bolen wrote about the meetings I’m speaking at in Chicago next week and the one I attended last March in Long Beach.

Tim says, in his Saturday June 9, 2012 blog:

“…there has been an effort to form alliances between the North American Health Freedom movement and the Autism world. It is succeeding. Both the Long Beach Health Freedom Expo and AutismOne worked well together. And now we are heading for the third, and fourth, collaborations – both in Chicago.” June 14-17.

Click Tim Bolen’s Link to meet the 40 participants in Diane Miller’s Health Freedom Congress on June 14. Diane is a dear friend and one of the most influential leaders in the health freedom movement because she’s actually managed to get our 40 groups together to talk about health freedom.

Many of you don’t even know there is a health freedom movement. So it’s time you found out because that’s what I talk about in every blog. The freedom to choose your own health therapies and not be forced to go to doctors who only use drugs and surgery. Doctors also need the freedom to use other options but mostly they are punished if they don’t use drugs and surgery.

Then click on Health Freedom Expo to see the line up of people that I’m speaking with June 15-17.

ONE MORE DAY: The 2-for-1 special of Whey Too Good low glycemic protein powder is only available until June 11, 2012. So, be sure to get stocked up before the sale ends.

Hiatal Hernia Self Massage

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Tuesday, June 5, 2012

I first developed what I thought was a small hiatal hernia when I was doing a lot of situps a few decades ago. I would have burping and pressure under my sternum and occasionally a very sharp pain in my left back at the level of my diaphragm and between my left neck and shoulder. My chiropractor confirmed a hiatal hernia and showed me how to pull my stomach back into position.

From that time on, I began doing the procedure on my patients and relieving a lot of distress. Children especially can develop a small hiatal hernia after a lot of coughing or vomiting leaving them with stomach pain and a finicky appetite.

A hiatal hernia is part of the stomach that pushes through a weak sphincter in the diaphragm beside the esophagus. If I had gone to a doctor I would have had barium x-rays to try to diagnose my pain. But the weight of the barium itself can push a hernia back into place making it hard to diagnose. Like too many things in medicine, doctors say the cause of hiatal hernia is unknown, even though they are very common, especially in people over 50 years old.

The symptoms are heartburn, chest pain, inability to take a deep breath, problems swallowing and the panicky feeling that there is something wrong with your heart!

I think hiatal hernias are common because we have so many digestive problems leading to gas and bloating, which can push the stomach up into a herniation. We are overweight, which pushes up on the stomach and we don’t exercise, which means our diaphragm doesn’t move with deep breathing which massages the stomach into place. And when we are under stress we hold our breath and breathe shallowly and therefore don’t properly massage our internal organs with the diaphragm.

Then there is magnesium deficiency! Yes, you thought this would be a magnesium-free blog, but there is no such thing in my world! If you’ve been coughing or vomiting or under a lot of stress, your stomach can go into spasm. Magnesium can relieve that stress, either taken by mouth or rubbing magnesium oil or cream on your stomach.

Besides being overweight and under stress, women during pregnancy are susceptible, as are people with constipation, all of which puts more pressure on the stomach.

There is no medical treatment for hiatus hernia and when it is very severe, surgery is offered. This operation is a last resort because of the many possible side effects including limited stomach capacity, severe discomfort when eating, and inability to vomit or belch normally.

However, there are natural treatments for this condition.
1. Avoid coffee, tea, and alcohol, which relax and weaken the sphincter between the stomach and esophagus.

2. Avoid sit-ups or do modified sit-ups. To do a modified sit-up, sit on a mat with your knees bent and back straight. Fold your arms over your chest, lean back a few inches, and sit up. Choose the number of repetitions that is best for you.

3. Do not lie down after a meal.

4. Do not drink liquids with meals.

5. In the morning, to settle the stomach in proper position, drink a glass of water, rise up on your toes, and then thump down on your heels about ten times.

6. Learn yogic breathing; when you inhale, let your abdomen rise so that your diaphragm falls. This opens up the lungs to full capacity and massages the stomach in place.

7. And the most important treatment is a traction massage on the abdomen to relax the stomach and ease it into its proper position.

I describe this in my book, Future Health Now Encyclopedia but since a picture is worth a thousand words I’m including a hiatal hernal self massage youtube by chiropractor, Dr. David Dahlman, which my 87-year old client in England found very helpful. It’s only 2:40 minutes long and can save you a world or suffering.

Being Body Sensitive

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, June 3, 2012

People keep asking me how much magnesium they should take. So, it’s high time I wrote a general statement on the topic. But you may not like what I have to say.

The answer is to become “body sensitive” so you don’t have to depend on someone else to be your body monitor and so you don’t have to take a standard amount that may not be what you really need. (The “standard” amount is 400 mg of elemental magnesium per day. But I personally know I need about 1,000 mg per day.)

Most people deny the sensations and feelings from their bodies until they are in so much pain or discomfort that they feel they have to go to a “so-called” professional to be told what to do. Trouble is, most health practitioners these days just give you a prescription for drugs or a truckload of supplements that don’t help…or even hurt.

I had one client who took 80 supplements a day…and there wasn’t much wrong with him in the first place. His doctor just played on his fears because he knew he could afford all those high priced pills.

Since I believe that magnesium deficiency is the basis of most chronic disease (and I can prove it), I’m saying to begin your health program with a good diet, a good attitude, good sleep and magnesium.

How do you know how much magnesium to take? Go to my blog, Gauging Magnesium Deficiency for a list of symptoms/conditions related to magnesium deficiency. Do this right. Print them up, check off what applies to you. You can even place a numerical value by each one (from 1-10). Then as you take your magnesium, and change your lifestyle, see what disappears. This means becoming aware of your body and what it’s trying to tell you. Nobody else can do that for you.

My magnesium deficiency symptoms are heart palpitations, charley horses, and muscle twitching. They disappear completely when I take “enough” magnesium. How do I know I have enough? My symptoms start to come back when I forget to take my magnesium or I have extra stress that drains my magnesium. However, as you replete your body stores of magnesium, you will need less as time goes on.

FREE TELECLASS: Too much calcium and not enough magnesium? To answer your questions about magnesium and what to take join me and HealthLady.com where we reveal Potential Health Risks of Imbalanced Mineral Consumption.

RnA Drops Tribute Show

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, June 1, 2012

I’ve gotten tons of queries about RnA Drops (since my blog post: It’s the RNA Not the DNA) and find it difficult to explain such a complex topic even though I patented the base ingredient in the drops. (Patent # 13204063) Of course, it’s also against FDA regulations to make claims for products.

Fortunately, all your questions are answered on the 3-hour James Martinez’ Cash Flow Radio Show (2012-05-31) with Virginia Gunther and Gregg Sanders. Even the ones about RNA and how it’s more important than DNA and the incredible revelation that the cross represents the “open” arms of Chromosome 14 in biblical teachings.
Hour One: begin at the 5 minute mark; Hour Two; Hour Three

On the show Virginia, a Christian minister, and Gregg, a long-time dabbler In the esoteric, discuss their amazing, individual and shared, experiences with the RnA Drops and the non-physical environment in which they were conceived.

My overwhelming interest in the RnA Drops is that they seem to have multidimensional effects that go beyond the physical. They ARE the medicine of the future, the next step in evolution. What do we need in our future? Something that prevents aging; helps detox environmental chemicals and heavy metals; and gives us bliss. I know I can’t claim that RnA Drops can do these things…or anything, for that matter. That’s why you should listen to Virginia and Gregg and hear for yourself what RnA Drops can do for you.

OFFER ENDING: The 2-for-1 special of Whey Too Good low glycemic meal replacement powder is still available. Several clients and friends have told me this week that they want to take advantage of this offer. Several others tell me that they are very happy with the product and the customer service. So, be sure to get stocked up before the sale ends.

MEDIA: Come to the Health Freedom Expo June 15-17, 2012, in Chicago where I will be giving two talks. The first is a keynote called: Death by Modern Medicine: What Your Doctors Don’t Know Can Kill you. Friday June 15, 2012 at 12 Noon. My second talk on Sunday June 17 at 12 noon is all about Magnesium. It’s called Death by Magnesium Deficiency: What Your Doctor Doesn’t Know and Can’t Tell You. I’m presenting with Morley Robbins a magnesium genius who credits (or blames) me for making him a magnesium fanatic. Morley has a talk about Magnesium on Friday June 15th at 3pm called Misled & Misfed: How Magnesium Deficiency is the Stealth Bomber in Chronic Disease. (I’ll be there in the front row!) In our Sunday presentation Morley and I will be answering magnesium deficiency health questions. I will also be on a Panel called Food As Medicine, Sunday June 17 at 3pm.

The Calcium Lie

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Monday, May 28, 2012

I recently did an Audio Interview for The Nutritional Magnesium Association (NMA) with Kathleen Barnes, coauthor of “The Calcium Lie”.

This interview has a very timely message since we’re now being warned that taking calcium supplements can double the risk of heart attack for women. Yes, that’s right…I did tell you so. You can google my name and calcium and find out why I hate this insoluble mineral.

While your at the NMA website, watch the video called A Look Inside the Cell which is about the importance of calcium magnesium balance. It’s on the same page as the Kathleen Barnes interview.

Then read the press release I wrote for the NMA in March 2012: High Calcium – Low Magnesium Consumption Poses Health Risk.

If you want to get maximized your magnesium intake from foods just beware of taking in too much oxalic acid. Here is an attack on green smoothies that explains the problem but unfortunately is designed for shock and awe.

I asked my foster-daughter, Shakaya Breeze to be the voice of reason in this debate. Shakaya said this warning against green smoothies isn’t a valid concern for people who are educated in the most nutritious foods on earth- greens and seaweeds. She said oxalates are higher in spinach than kale so she always recommends rotating greens (also for the micro amounts of toxic/poison/alkaloid that make our immune system stronger. For example, there are homeopathic amounts of arsenic in parsley and clover, and nicotine and opium in romaine lettuce.

Putting things into perspective, Shakaya also reminds us that there are far more oxalates in coffee and people drink way more coffee than green smoothies!

The Benefits of Green Smoothies:

1. Convenient- takes 3 minutes to make
2. Clean up is a breeze
3. Very economical- moreso than juicing
4. Easily digested nutrition
5. Easier than changing one’s diet, adding green smoothies helps people STOP craving junk food and they start craving greens and healthy food
6. Reverse low HCL because of deficiency in zinc and greens blended have absorbable zinc
7. Our digestive system is rested and heals on blended foods/greens with high nutrition

You can find out more about raw food and green smoothies and much more on Shakaya’s Earth Empress Website.

Magnesium for Pseudogout, MS, Gingivitis and Teeth

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Wednesday, May 23, 2012

A blog reader said he had high hopes that he would read a blog from me that resisted any mention of my favorite supplement, magnesium. Then he wanted to know if he really needed a magnesium supplement if he eats lots of green veggies. Well, I’m very sorry but the magnesium blog keeps chugging along fueled by constant input from magnesium fans. And yes, I think that everyone needs more magnesium in spite of a good diet. I know I do.

One reader wrote: “Another disease you can add to your list that’s caused by magnesium deficiency is pseudogout (CPPD). I had calcium crystals in both knees, both ankles and my left wrist. Within three days of starting magnesium the pain in my left wrist started going away.” He said he found an article in Medical Hypotheses that reported Vitamin B1 (thiamine) needs sufficient magnesium to create thiamine pyrophosphate, but when magnesium is deficient calcium pyrophosphate is produced instead. He asked me to add this information to my website so it can help others regain their quality of life as he has.

I think the following report is even more amazing. “I want to tell you a wonderful thing about Magnesium. I had pyorrhea and gingivitis for years. When I started taking magnesium the pyorrhea and gingivitis cleared up. Then I noticed my right front cuspid was thinner than the left but there was also a diagonal chip in the left cuspid. I began a regimen of brushing my teeth with magnesium and within 3 months the tooth had remineralized. Both teeth are fine and the right cuspid that was thinner is now normal. It truly is a miracle mineral. I told my dentist about it but really, he didn’t pay attention. Professionals think it’s some kind of idiocy. When will they wake up?”

The type of magnesium to use on your toothbrush is magnesium oil. This is a supersaturated magnesium chloride (from sea water) in distilled water.

I use LL’s Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil because I know it’s safe without contaminants.

Just put a few drops on a toothbrush and brush well.

I use some of my regular, natural tooth paste; and spray some mag oil from a small spray bottle. One or two sprays will do.

Some people use baking soda along with the mag oil.

Some people floss first.

Some dilute the oil if it’s too strong.

Some also gargle with a few drops of magnesium oil in water for gingivitis.

However, if you have mercury fillings, I would not use magnesium in the mouth.
Magnesium pulls out toxic metals and could pull mercury into your mouth which you might then swallow.

All in all, the results from using magnesium oil for dental hygiene are impressive.

Another blog reader wrote that his mother is on a lot of medications but he got her taking magnesium. He said, “After her first dose she said that she later had a really good BM–and felt 10 years younger. WOW–that makes me feel it’s really worth it to remind her to take it—she’s almost 89 years old.

Even multiple sclerosis can respond to magnesium. A blog reader wrote the following. “As an MS patient I was blown away to find that after only two days on magnesium citrate, several of my symptoms disappeared to the point that I am more of a functioning woman.”

What about migraines? Here is a newly published article in the Journal of Neural Transmission. It’s called Why All Migraine Patients Should Be Treated With Magnesium. The lead author is Dr. A. Mauskop who runs the New York Headache Center and has written many papers on magnesium and migraines. I quoted him in my Magnesium Miracle book. You can read the abstract of his paper which he ends by saying “…the fact that magnesium deficiency may be present in up to half of migraine patients, and that routine blood tests are not indicative of magnesium status, empiric treatment with at least oral magnesium is warranted in all migraine sufferers.” That’s a pretty clear directive that you don’t often see in journal articles…usually they say, we need more funding to research this further!

Low Cost Health Practices

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Tuesday, May 15, 2012

A couple recently wrote that they love my blogs. But they find that my personal health routine is too expensive to follow (supplements, water purifier, clay, etc.). All their time is spent on two low-paying jobs and they don’t even have time to take baths. Even they they think that ‘you have to be wealthy to be healthy’ they would desperately like to follow a health routine because they’ve been suffering for years with serious health problems.

Do you have to be wealthy to be healthy? Not necessarily so!

Supplements? If you can afford only one or two supplements make them magnesium and a good multi. My recommendations are Natural Calm and Organic Life Vitamins (liquid) that you can get at almost half price at VitaCost.

If you can’t afford any supplements, then please use Sea Salt (Celtic or Real Salt). Eighty percent of the population is deficient in sodium…in spite of what doctors say, so, table salt is the real problem. It’s just sodium and chloride and added iodine. Sea Salt has 72 different minerals, many of which we’ve never even tested to know how important they are for the body. I know when I started taking 1/8th tsp of sea salt in every pint of water I drank, I suddenly stopped getting up at night to go to the bathroom. Something was making the water stay in my cells longer and not flush straight through me.

Food? It’s best to eat organic food but many people say it’s too expensive. That’s not the case if you join a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Typically food is half the price at a good farmer’s market or through a CSA. You can even start your own CSA, gather members, find an organic farmer and get your food shares free for organizing the program.

Do a cost analysis of what you are eating, where you are eating and where you are shopping. Become a bargain hunter and coupon collector. Keeping track of sales in grocery stores and health food stores and shopping online at VitaCost to save on quality foods and products and get free shipping.

Another blog reader sent the following list of low cost tips. He said “We no longer use store-bought toothpaste (which discolored our teeth and made us sick countless times in years past) and instead use baking soda with a dropper of McCormick mint extract (from grocery store) and a dropper of hydrogen peroxide. We like your sinus irrigation and find it WORKS when a cold come on. We simply use a dropper and snort warm saline (purified water with table salt). We also use a warm saline gargle and a touch of H2O2 for bad sore throats.”

Exercise? Many people say they don’t have time to exercise, but it’s one of the most important things you can do. For short trips around town, try biking or walking. You’ll save gas and detox your lymphatic system, improve your heart health, build muscle that burns fat. A host of benefits for a no cost solution.

Detoxing? I do recommend purified Magnesium Flakes but Epsom salts are definitely better than not doing a magnesium bath at all! Most drug store chains have 6 lb bags for about $5.00. A pound per bath and you’re detoxing for under a dollar.

Time? For people who feel they don’t have the time to live a healthy lifestyle, I guarantee that if you add a few more healthy practices your energy improves, your sleep improves and you will have time and energy to spare.

If you email me your low- or no-cost health tips I’ll pass them along. In the meantime, if you have a question, please google it with my name and I may have already posted an answer. Or check out my expanding Health Library.

Magnesium for Mother’s Day

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, May 13, 2012

As the Medical Director of the non-profit, Nutritional Magnesium Association I’m doing a series of dialogues with health professionals about magnesium. One of my first dialogues, available at the Nutritional Magnesium Website, is with former cardiology technologist, Huelyn Betts.

I met Huelyn at the Health Freedom Expo in Long Beach in March, 2012. What she has to say about the overuse of cardiac devices in patients exposes the complete lack of commonsense and lack of nutritional awareness in medicine.

Having worked with thousands of cardiac device patients, Huelyn wonders how many health conditions, that lead to these device implants, could be prevented. The vast majority of patients she saw were typically taking an excess of medications, and few were consuming any nutritional supplements critical to cardiac health.

When Huelyn developed her own cardiac arrhythmia and treated it successfully with magnesium, she realized she wanted to help educate people to make healthier choices and to prevent disease, specifically with respect to arrhythmias and heart disease.

Listen to what Huelyn has to say and be sure to pass on this information.

Death by Sugar

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Wednesday, May 9, 2012

Death by Sugar is the title of Chapter 10 of my eBook, Death by Modern Medicine. If you haven’t read it, then come to the Chicago, Health Freedom Expo in June where I will be giving two talks and speaking on two panels. The first is a keynote called: Death by Modern Medicine: What Your Doctors Don’t Know Can Kill You. Friday June 15, 2012 at 12 Noon. Bring your lunch!!

Sugar is a huge topic for me. I wrote a book about sugar back in 1989. I never did publish it. Christmas 1989, I was on national TV, the Dini Petty Show in Canada, talking about the dangers of sugar. Because of that show my medical licensing body upheld a complaint made against me by a sugar lobby group and all that ensued led to my license in Ontario being stolen from me. (I still hold a license in California). You can read the whole story in Death by Modern Medicine or in an article I wrote for Natural News. The Medical Monopoly: It’s Not About Who’s Right or Wrong but Who’s In Charge.

Well it seems that I was right all those years ago and it’s high time I finished my sugar book. Vindication may be sweet victory for me but it does nothing to help the millions of people who have been knowingly misled and misfed! Vindication comes in the form of several recent studies, an article in the NY Times called Is Sugar Toxic, and a segment on 60 Minutes, also called, Is Sugar Toxic?

These reports all reference Dr. Robert Lustig, a pediatric endocrinologist whose lecture, Sugar: The Bitter Truth has been viewed about 2.5 million times on YouTube. Lustig and his fellow researchers have concluded that it’s the fructose component in sucrose (processed table sugar) and high fructose corn syrup that’s causing the epidemic of Metabolic Syndrome with it’s components of obesity, Type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance, elevated cholesterol and triglyerides, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, stroke, inflammation, and non-alcoholic fatty-liver disease.

As it turns out we were only meant to eat fructose in the form of fruit with all its fiber intact. Duh!

Fructose isn’t processed like glucose, which is necessary for cellular nutrition. It’s processed in the liver as a toxin and transformed into fat. Alcohol is processed the same way…in the liver, as a toxin. Chronic fructose consumption and chronic alcohol consumption have most of the same side effects.

As I said, I knew all this decades ago and I’ve worked out the remedy. You have to get re-educated about diet and lifestyle. Simply sign up for my weekly online wellness program called Completement Now! where you will find out what to eat, how to exercise and how to relieve stresses of all kinds.

In the meantime choose low glycemic foods! If you find it impossible to switch to cooking foods from scratch overnight, or juicing or making green vegetable smoothies, begin with my favorite protein powder Whey Too Good.

I’m medical advisor for this product and the company is in the midst of offering a 2 for 1 special to my readers. So, please take advantage of this opportunity.

I mix Whey Too Good with Antioxidant Omega-3 Greens from Tropical Traditions.

Media: Please send this email to anyone you know in Chicago and encourage them to come to the Health Freedom Expo June 15-17, 2012.

My first talk, Death by Medicine, is 12 Noon on Friday June 15, 2012. My second talk on Sunday June 17 at 12 noon is all about Magnesium.
