Coronary Artery Calcification Increases Atrial Fibrillation

January 3, 2016

Coronary Calcium Scans assess the degree of calcification of the coronary arteries using CT scans. X-rays and CT scan radiation accumulates in the body and I recommend they be used with caution and only for emergencies. The Coronary Calcium Scan has not “caught on” as a screening tool because there are no drugs to “dissolve” the calcium in coronary arteries. Allopathic medicine uses stents, calcium channel blockers, statin drugs – ineffectively.

Atrial Fibrillation: The Magnesium Option

April 19, 2015

I’ve neglected my blog posts recently because I’m busy writing a short book on Atrial Fibrillation. I was motivated to do this when I found my picture, my Magnesium Miracle book and my words being used, without my permission, to sell a $30.00 book that promotes the surgical treatment of Atrial Fibrillation. I decided to write an inexpensive Kindle book and offer, what I know to be, a safe option for preventing and treating this condition. That option is very simple and very effective and consists of minerals (especially magnesium) and proper hydration.

An Atrial Fibrillation Epidemic

April 3, 2015

I’ve written about AFib and magnesium many times because it’s reaching epidemic proportions. I received “The Arrhythmia Alliance Outstanding Medical Contribution to Cardiac Rhythm Management Services Award 2012” from the Heart Rhythm Society. In spite of that, magnesium continues to go unnoticed. Doctors meet by the thousands in conferences dedicated to AFib and come way with more drugs and more surgical procedures to treat the symptoms of this condition.

Magnesium deficiency is epidemic. The heart has the highest amount of magnesium in the body. If the heart muscles are lacking in magnesium, they can go into spasm causing pain or heart rhythm disturbances. You may not even feel any symptoms but on a routine physical with an EKG your doctor may say – Oh, […]

An Atrial Fibrillation Testimonial

February 21, 2014

“I am a 57-year old man who was diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillation 4 months ago. My symptoms included an irregular heartbeat, shortness of breath, anxiety, and lack of strength. I was unable to walk up a short flight of stairs without my symptoms kicking in. Up to this point I had been a very healthy person doing regular workouts and eating extremely healthy.

The next month consisted of a cardioversion and numerous visits with doctors and electrophysiologists. I was put on 3 different prescription drugs and told I would need a catheter ablation. During this time, my condition did not improve.

Magnesium, Endurance Athletes & Atrial Fibrillation

June 26, 2013

In a Medscape blog by an electrophysiology cardiologist called “Endurance Exercise and Heart Disease: Look for Clues in the Genes” it seems the good doctor has stopped looking for a proper reason for heart disease. Yes, when all else fails – blame the genes. Researchers say that gene mutations that code for certain proteins in […]

Giving Thanks for Magnesium

November 22, 2012

A blog reader just sent me a wonderful Thanksgiving message that I want to share with you.

“Dear Dr. Dean:
I read your Magnesium Miracle early last summer. My husband has had episodes of atrial fibrillation for the last three years. Since starting on magnesium taurate he has had just five, two-hour episodes. Prior to magnesium he had episodes that lasted 1-2 days. His cardiologist acknowledged it ‘probably was the magnesium.’
