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 […]

Athletes’ Yips? Magnesium Deficiency 

February 24, 2019

This Medscape article “When Athletes Fail: The Science Behind ‘The Yips’” caught my attention because I’d never heard of this bizarre term ‘Yips’ or its association with athletes.  Apparently Yips is a state of extreme nervousness in a golfer that can be accompanied by an involuntary jerk, twitch, or shake that blows an otherwise easy putt.  Neurologists are […]

Hammering Hypertension

February 17, 2019

A Medscape article about “When to Start Treating Hypertension” caught my eye, and my mind immediately went to the studies showing that people with magnesium deficiency are at risk for hypertension. The paper that I’m asking everyone to print up and take to their doctor and give to friends and family is called “Subclinical Magnesium […]

Statin Safety – An Oxymoron

February 10, 2019

How is it even possible that it took the American Heart Association (AHA) until Dec 2018 to produce their “First Scientific Statement on Statin Safety” over 30 years since statins were approved? It comes at a time when the death knell has been sounded for cholesterol being a cause of heart disease. Even the title […]

Supplements and Chronic Disease 

February 4, 2019

In what the authors probably assume is a fantastic expose, they conclude that “Dietary Supplements Don’t Prevent Chronic Disease.”  The authors first note that the dietary supplement industry had an estimated $41.1 billion in sales in 2016 while the Academy of Nutrition and Dieteticsis cautioning against their “routine and indiscriminate use.”  They qualify that while “single- and […]
