The Great Potassium Breakthrough

August 25, 2020

Why have we practitioners shied away from prescribing, or even recommending, high doses of potassium to our patients? We can lay the blame at the feet of the FDA who, with an overabundance of caution, ruled that potassium supplements cannot exceed 99mg of potassium per dose, which is only 2% of the 4,700mg Adequate Intake […]

Diagnosing Magnesium Deficiency

August 11, 2020

Why do I recommend the Magnesium Deficiency Questionnaire instead of magnesium blood testing? In The Magnesium Miracle I wrote about two famous magnesium researchers Drs. Bella and Burton Altura who have been researching magnesium and its clinical application for over forty years. They helped develop and test the Ionized Magnesium electrode, produced by Nova Biomedical of Waltham, Massachusetts.

Vitamin D, Magnesium, and Calcium are Co-Nutrients

August 4, 2020

In medicine, we’re trained to be isolationists. We only focus on one disease, one drug, or one nutrient at a time. But that’s not how the body works. The dynamic interaction of nutrients is what keeps us alive and thriving. Calcium For many years I was concerned that women were being asked to take poorly […]

Magnesium-Deficient Obesity

October 20, 2019

I wrote “Magnesium The Weight Loss Cure” in May, 2012 and it’s time for an update. In 2012 the statistics on the number of people being overweight and obese were not as dire as they are today. According to the CDC, in 2015-2016 the prevalence of obesity was 39.8% and affected about 93.3 million US […]

No Future for Medicine

October 13, 2019

I came across a series of 4 articles on Medscape that explain why the current health-care system is truly a disease-care system where chronically ill patients don’t have much hope of getting healthy when they are under allopathic care. The first article, “Physicians, Patients at Odds on Chronic Care Priorities” reports on an exploratory study […]

Treating Superbugs

September 29, 2019

Antibiotic resistance is nothing new. Most people don’t realize that it began within a year of the introduction of penicillin in 1928 when superbugs immediately learned to outsmart the drugs that were meant to kill them. Big Pharma’s single-minded workaround for this inconvenience is to make endless variations of antibiotic drugs hoping to outwit the […]

Misdiagnosing Magnesium Deficiency

September 22, 2019

When I wrote Death by Modern Medicine, I simply added up government death statistics on Hospital ADRs (adverse drug reactions), Medical Errors, Bedsores, Infections, Malnutrition, Outpatient ADRs, Unnecessary Procedures, and Surgery-Related Deaths to obtain a 1 million iatrogenic and premature annual death total. But I didn’t write about misdiagnosis, which is the topic of this Medscape […]
