Magnesium for Father’s Day

June 14, 2014

Pastor Ginney, who elevates RnA ReSet Customer Service to a new level of efficiency and compassion posted a YouTube that I call: Give ReMag Not Roses. When Ginney found out that heart disease is the number one killer of women, and knowing that too much calcium and not enough magnesium are the main causes of heart disease, she took action.

I’ll expand Ginney’s outreach to include all those Dads out there, who will celebrate Father’s day tomorrow. Give them the gift of life – magnesium.

Here is a magnesium miracle story from a blog reader. “I learned my neighbor had been suffering heart problems for years. Like yours truly, he had lost his wife and his stress was also through the roof. I suggested magnesium (and briefly explained the nuances). He took the data and after a few months his doctors were ‘blown away’ by his vast improvement. He was so encouraged, he now goes to an alternative medical clinic and his health is an order of magnitude improved.”

I think most of us realize we are nothing without our health, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading health blogs and I wouldn’t be writing them. And for many, the current drug-treatment approach for chronic health problems is fast losing favor. When I was in medical school I was taught to use drugs for as short a time as possible and then let the body take over.

Yet, I keep finding confirmation that drugs drain magnesium and have side effects that affect the heart. The heart has the highest amount of magnesium in the body and it’s important for the proper function of the heart muscle. If you don’t have enough magnesium in the heart, it goes into spasm causing angina, atrial fibrillation and even heart attack.

The following article confirms that anti-inflammatory drugs can cause Atrial Fibrillation. NSAIDs Linked to Higher Atrial Fibrillation Risk. How many people may be affected? The most recent stats that I could find were on wiki. In 2001, NSAIDs accounted for 70 million prescriptions and 30 billion OTC doses sold annually in the U.S.

Antibiotic Use and Increased Risk of Cardiac Arrhythmia and Death. Zithromax and Levaquin were the drugs mentioned in this study. Levaquin is a fluoride drug, and like Cipro, can lead to tendon rupture. I’ve written about the dangers of fluoride binding magnesium and causing magnesium deficiency symptoms in my Magnesium Miracle book.

Drug Induced Atrial Fibrillation lists 8 classes of suspected drugs. That’s not 8 drugs but 8 classes of drugs. And this 2004 study does not even list antibiotics or NSAIDs. So, it’s really 10 classes of drugs. I repeat, it’s very probable that taking these drugs depletes magnesium and triggers symptoms of heart disease.

When you are diagnosed with atrial fibrillation you are immediately put on several medications but not magnesium. However, if you have read my blogs you know that one of the causes of AFib is magnesium deficiency. Similarly, when have symptoms of a heart attack, you are immediately given at least 6 prescription medications – some are to “prevent” further episodes. Magnesium is not included on the list.

I repeat, give all those Dads out there the gift of life – magnesium.
