Keep The Beat With Magnesium – Dr. Carolyn Dean MD ND

Keep The Beat With Magnesium

November 26, 2012

A blog reader wrote that she had been seeing an increase in the use of pacemakers in many of her clients and families and was wondering what my thoughts were on this issue.

I’ve recently learned that the preferred method of dealing with heart arrhythmia is the surgical implantation of an artificial pacemaker so that strong medications can be used to stop the arrhythmia. Trouble is that these drugs may also have the effect of stopping the heart – thus the need for the pacemaker! However, with the judicious use of magnesium many people are finding that their heart rhythm is doing just what it should be doing. Even the Heart Rhythm Society in the UK recognized this fact by awarding me with The Arrhythmia Alliance Outstanding Medical Contribution to Cardiac Rhythm Management Services Award 2012.

The highest concentration of magnesium is in the heart muscle, so if you are magnesium deficient, how can the heart beat properly? Also, magnesium is necessary for the proper functioning of 1,440 biological enzyme systems that make up 80% of the total number in the body. So, it’s very simple, you’re either taking magnesium and getting healthy – or you’re not!

For more on pacemakers, listen to an eye-opening dialogue I had with cardiology technician, Huelyn Betts and her views on the invasiveness of cardiac technology and lack of attention to magnesium, Cardiotechnology versus Magnesium is an MP3 file on the non-profit, Nutritional Magnesium Association Website.

For my recommended magnesium sources, see my Health Resources and click on Supplements. A combination of ReMag (100% absorbed at the cellular level), Natural Calm (code magnesium-miracle) and Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil seem to work best.

I had a DUH! moment today when someone asked me for the recipes I talked about at the Weston A Price conference a few weeks ago. I googled to see if I’d blogged them at some point. And in my Organized Wisdom Health Library I found a list of my recipes that I didn’t even know were there. So if I didn’t know about them, how could you!

On Organized Wisdom you will find close to 600 files that I’ve created on health and wellness!
