Magnesium for Asthma

February 24, 2013

The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) is having their annual meeting this month to tackle the causes of asthma and allergy. They will have more than 850 presentations of original research at this meeting. And you can be sure nobody is going to speak about the role of magnesium deficiency in asthma. The number of speakers is far more than the audience of most alternative medicine meeting. Thousands will attend this meeting and those of all the other medical specialties; they represent big business for the drug industry,

Magnesium for Asthma: Canine and Human

January 25, 2012

In my book, The Magnesium Miracle, I write about magnesium and asthma.

1. Research shows that many patients with asthma and other bronchial diseases have low magnesium.

3. Patients treated with simple magnesium supplementation report marked improvement in their symptoms.

4. Both histamine production and bronchial spasms increase with magnesium deficiency.

5. Magnesium is an environmental detoxifier reducing the triggers for asthma.

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.

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.

Magnesium or Biologics for Inflammation

Inflammation is a major cause of chronic disease; I’ve been saying this for years and now allopathic medicine is agreeing. If you Google my name and inflammation you’ll access a whole screen-full of blogs like “Excess Calcium Fuels Neuro-Inflammation.” “Magnesium The Safe and Natural Anti-inflammatory” In my Magnesium Miracle book I mention inflammation 93 times. I’ve also […]

Magnesium and Minerals, Not Surgery, for Your Thyroid

August 12, 2019

Two things just happened in quick succession to propel me to write this blog about the thyroid. One is quite scary. It’s a Medscape article “Can Surgery Alleviate Persistent Symptoms in Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis?” The other was a comment from Ginney who sent me an awesome testimonial from a Mom about her toddler. It’s off topic […]

July 31, 2019

Detox is a hot buzzword in the alternative medical community but for everyone else, including allopathic medicine, the word still resonates with drug and alcohol rehab. Activated charcoal is used in the alternative medicine community to treat GI symptoms and for detoxification. It must be a big enough trend for an attack to be unleashed in an article […]
