Magnesium Crosses the BBB 

March 17, 2019

I’ve been thinking a lot about the BBB since the 2009 rat study “Enhancement of Learning and Memory by Elevating Brain Magnesium.” Everyone heard about this study because the news that a patented magnesium was able to get into the brain and cerebrospinal fluid – of rats – was promoted relentlessly. The study authors implied […]

Create the Disease and Offer the Cure for Kids

March 10, 2019

I’ve used the title Create the Disease and Offer the Cure before in a post about potential goldmines for Big Pharma in treating Adult ADHD, Fibromyalgia, Middle of the Night Insomnia, Excessive Sleepiness, Shift Work Sleep Disorder, and Insomnia That is Really Depression. In this present blog I’m critiquing an article in Medscape titled “One in Six US […]

Medicine Mad At Supplement Sales

March 4, 2019

Why do I keep harping about the attacks on dietary supplements? It’s because nutrients represent the last bastion of defense that vulnerable medical patients can turn to when drugs and doctors let them down. And allopathic medicine is doing it darndest to keep patients away from supplements. A Medscape article “Supplements and CVD: Why Negative […]

Athletes’ Yips? Magnesium Deficiency 

February 24, 2019

This Medscape article “When Athletes Fail: The Science Behind ‘The Yips’” caught my attention because I’d never heard of this bizarre term ‘Yips’ or its association with athletes.  Apparently Yips is a state of extreme nervousness in a golfer that can be accompanied by an involuntary jerk, twitch, or shake that blows an otherwise easy putt.  Neurologists are […]

Hammering Hypertension

February 17, 2019

A Medscape article about “When to Start Treating Hypertension” caught my eye, and my mind immediately went to the studies showing that people with magnesium deficiency are at risk for hypertension. The paper that I’m asking everyone to print up and take to their doctor and give to friends and family is called “Subclinical Magnesium […]

Statin Safety – An Oxymoron

February 10, 2019

How is it even possible that it took the American Heart Association (AHA) until Dec 2018 to produce their “First Scientific Statement on Statin Safety” over 30 years since statins were approved? It comes at a time when the death knell has been sounded for cholesterol being a cause of heart disease. Even the title […]

Supplements and Chronic Disease 

February 4, 2019

In what the authors probably assume is a fantastic expose, they conclude that “Dietary Supplements Don’t Prevent Chronic Disease.”  The authors first note that the dietary supplement industry had an estimated $41.1 billion in sales in 2016 while the Academy of Nutrition and Dieteticsis cautioning against their “routine and indiscriminate use.”  They qualify that while “single- and […]

Feds to Limit Opioid Exposure

January 27, 2019

And how do they propose doing that? A Medscape article, “Federal Task Force Highlights Ways to Limit Opioid Exposure”, says they want to take a closer look at how insurers’ policies deny Americans ways to manage their acute and chronic pain without facing the risk for opioid addiction.   Well look no further! They can just […]

Adapt, Adopt, and Survive

January 20, 2019

After several conversations with a keen and cool millennial, I realized I should consider my own mantra of “adapt, adopt, and survive” when I discuss millennials and their drug intake.  You can Google what I’ve previously written about ADHD and Ritalin. My blog, “Recycling Amphetamines” speaks to the generation of young people who have grown […]

Demeaning Dietary Supplements

January 13, 2019

How can nutrients that the body requires for every breath we take, every move we make, and every thought we have be so misunderstood by doctors? When I first began taking a close look at magnesium in the late 1990s I was astounded at what it can do – and I remain astounded as the […]
