How Common Is Polypharmacy in Old Age?

May 5, 2019

You notice from my blog title, which is same as the Medscape article “How Chronic Is Polypharmacy in Old Age?” they are not asking IF there is polypharmacy in old age, they are asking HOW MUCH. Polypharmacy in the elderly is entrenched and has become a topic of research. I think the funding of the […]

Moisturizing for Mental Health

April 28, 2019

The Sacramento Bee published the coolest article titled “Want to Cut Your Risk of Dementia? Moisturize Your Skin, UCSF Researchers Say.” You can read the Full Text of this study about age-damaged skin in older adults. You can even print it out to accompany the bottle of body lotion – filled with ReMag Lotion – that you […]

The Apple Heart Study

April 21, 2019

My favorite cardiologist Dr. John Mandrola is skeptical, like me, about Apple getting into the medical research business. You can read Taking the Pulse of the Apple Heart Study and draw your own conclusions, but I’ll give you mine. A study investigator from Stanford said that the Apple Heart Study (AHS) “…gives clinicians information they can use. […]

Keto and IF Lower Triglycerides

April 14, 2019

An article on Medscape called “Intermittent Fasting Lowers Triglycerides More Than Regular Diet” reported on a study showing “Triglyceride (TGL) levels were reduced by 40% compared with the usual calorie-restricted diet in healthy but overweight/obese individuals.” The researchers said this was the first time such an effect has been observed in humans. They couldn’t figure out why […]

Drugging Coronary Arteries

April 7, 2019

Here’s what happens when you are diagnosed with blocked coronary arteries after an angiogram. Doctors mechanically open up the narrowed artery. The procedure is called angioplasty. An incision is made in the wrist or groin and a catheter with a balloon at the tip is inserted and advanced to the point of blockage. All this […]

Shortage of Antianxiety Drug

March 31, 2019

It was very frustrating to read this article “Shortage of Antianxiety Drug Leaves Patients in the Lurch” because nobody has to be left in the lurch. There is so much more to preventing and treating anxiety than drugs. In Chapter 3 of The Magnesium Miracle I talk about magnesium deficiency and anxiety, depression and sleep. I begin […]

Rewarding Physicians

March 24, 2019

I’ve written blogs about doctors’ dissatisfaction with their jobs and the high suicide rate. I say it because their patients are also dissatisfied with their drug- and surgery-based treatment. What satisfies doctors? Patients may think that money is a motivation but doctors are increasingly being used to drive revenue into hospitals not into their pockets. […]

Magnesium Crosses the BBB 

March 17, 2019

I’ve been thinking a lot about the BBB since the 2009 rat study “Enhancement of Learning and Memory by Elevating Brain Magnesium.” Everyone heard about this study because the news that a patented magnesium was able to get into the brain and cerebrospinal fluid – of rats – was promoted relentlessly. The study authors implied […]

Create the Disease and Offer the Cure for Kids

March 10, 2019

I’ve used the title Create the Disease and Offer the Cure before in a post about potential goldmines for Big Pharma in treating Adult ADHD, Fibromyalgia, Middle of the Night Insomnia, Excessive Sleepiness, Shift Work Sleep Disorder, and Insomnia That is Really Depression. In this present blog I’m critiquing an article in Medscape titled “One in Six US […]

Medicine Mad At Supplement Sales

March 4, 2019

Why do I keep harping about the attacks on dietary supplements? It’s because nutrients represent the last bastion of defense that vulnerable medical patients can turn to when drugs and doctors let them down. And allopathic medicine is doing it darndest to keep patients away from supplements. A Medscape article “Supplements and CVD: Why Negative […]
