A customer wrote: “I have read your book on AFib and I use your ReMag lotion, which I believe has helped me avoid ectopic heartbeats following a cryo-ablation this past July. However, I came across a 2016 Editorial in the journal Circulation and Electrophysiology by the American Heart Association, which references a recent study that says magnesium doesn’t help AFib. Can you comment?”
The editorial is called “Magnesium for Atrial Fibrillation, Myth or Magic?” The study’s title is “Efficacy of Intravenous Magnesium in Facilitating Cardioversion of Atrial Fibrillation” and it’s another sad waste of money in a ridiculous attempt to make magnesium act like a drug and then bashing it when it fails! Magnesium is not a drug, You can’t just give one dose of magnesium to someone and expect it to perform. Magnesium is a mineral that is crucial for ensuring the proper structure and function of the heart and most people have deficits that need to be built up slowly over time. One bolus of magnesium in someone in AFib is not going to shock the heart into normal rhythm. I repeat, magnesium is not a drug.
This study, however, is even worse than useless because it gives ammunition to supplement bashers. You may have noticed them polluting the Internet, allopathic doctors violently putting down alternative medicine. It’s a form of extreme bullying by people with an allopathic agenda who from their self-imposed, vaulted position think they are right and will never look at non drug, non surgical choices in medicine. Actually these people are so violent and aggressive I’m sure they have severe magnesium deficiency and might mellow out if they took ReMag!
The conclusion reached by the head researcher of the study actually, sets up the people who use magnesium, for ridicule. Dr. Kotecha says “at present, the available data would suggest that magnesium, as an adjunct to electric cardioversion or for prevention, is more myth than practical, easy (or magical) solution to the growing problem of AF.” Giving evidence of his pro drug bias, Kotecha discloses that he has accepted research grants and funding from two pharmaceutical companies and a company that makes surgical tools for treating AFib.
I have come across cardiologists and electrophysiologists on the Internet who admit that there is an epidemic of AFib and they are losing the battle. However, they refuse point blank to consider alternatives! While pulling in their ½ to ¾ million dollar salaries, they accuse doctors like Mercola and Sinatra and websites like Mike Adams, Natural News and Life Extension of making money from the sale of dietary supplements for AFib. Pot – Kettle – Black!
If only we could convince these doctors to read some of the incredible and credible research that’s being done on magnesium. Would they even care that I received “The Arrhythmia Alliance Outstanding Medical Contribution to Cardiac Rhythm Management Services Award 2012” at The Heart Rhythm Congress organized by the Heart Rhythm Society in the UK. They would just have to pick up my Magnesium Miracle book and scan the 600 references. Unfortunately, most would probably just focus on the fact that I have a product that I discuss in the book. That would give them enough reason to dismiss anything I say and ignore the fact that there may be a magnesium solution to conditions that are really magnesium deficiency.
But all is not lost. You can perform a valid clinical trial on ReMag where the number of patients enrolled is N=1. The 1 being the individual who takes ReMag and sees what it does to her/his body.
