Title: Heart Disease and Stroke account for 40-50% of the annua

  • Presented at the Healthy Harvest Natural Product
    Retailers Convention September 27, 2008.
  • Dr. Carolyn Dean MD ND
  • Phone Consultations for Health

  • Are you in

If you want to help people plus build your
  • Recommend Magnesium!
  • The safest supplement
  • Does not build up in the body
  • Its only side effect is loose BMsa benefit to
    most people
  • Inexpensive
  • Delivers results
  • Often immediately relieving cramps, improving
    sleep and energy, migraines, and intestinal

Minerals Cant Be Made
  • Our body can make some vitamins but it cant make
  • Minerals
  • We are dependant on food, water, supplements
    for our mineral requirements.

American Soil is Magnesium Deficient
  • Minerals from the mountains wash into rivers
    which flood the banks in the spring and enrich
    the soil.
  • Soil organisms (bacteria and mycelia mushrooms)
    make minerals smaller so they can be absorbed by
    plant rootlets.
  • Minerals are enveloped by plant proteins in a
    process called chelation, and become a water
    soluble mineral with plant access
  • The minerals are now the correct size and
    electrical charge, perfect for absorption and
    assimilation by any animal/human

  • Visit me at the Natural Vitality Booth all day

Magnesium a daily fact of life
  • Magnesium is an essential cofactor in 325
    different enzymes in thousands of chemical
  • Energy production
  • Control of digestion, absorption, and the
    utilization of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates.
  • Cholesterol production and breakdown
  • Temperature regulation
  • Nerve and muscle firing

How Magnesium Works!
  • A unique video produced and narrated by Andrea
    Rosanoff PhD normally accompanies this slide show
    but has to be accessed through youtube.com. It is
    called Balancing Calcium and Magnesium.
  • Dr. Rosanoff is co-author of the book "The
    Magnesium Factor" and is the Directing Scholar of
    the Center for Magnesium Education Research.
  • What is shown on this video is cutting-edge
    science and has been validated by leading science
    experts in magnesium and cellular research.

Magnesium creates energy
  • Ask your customers - Are you fatigued?
  • The most important magnesium enzyme creates
    energy by activating adenosine triphosphate
    (ATP), the fundamental energy molecule of the
  • ATP may be what the Chinese refer to as Qi or
    life force.
  • Magnesium is required for the body to be able to
    produce and store energy.

Magnesium relaxes muscles
  • Ask your customers - Do you have muscle cramps?
  • Calcium causes contraction in skeletal muscle
    fibers, and magnesium causes relaxation.
  • Too much calcium inside a cell causes muscle
    contraction-twitches, spasms, and convulsions.
  • Smooth muscles with too much calcium and
    insufficient magnesium can affect
  • The bronchial tract, causing asthma
  • Muscles in the blood vessels, resulting in
  • The fallopian tubes causing infertility
  • The bladder causing frequency and pain
  • Interstitial cystitis
  • Painful periods

Magnesium and the Heart
  • Ask your Customers Do you want to prevent
    heart disease?
  • Heart Disease and Stroke account for 40-50 of
    the annual death rate.
  • Magnesium deficiency common in heart disease.
  • Women have a higher death rate from heart disease
    than men.
  • Women seem to require more magnesium than men.
  • 30 of angina patients do not have badly blocked
    arteries but may be suffering from an
    electrical imbalance that is driven by mineral

Magnesium and the Heart
  • 40-60 of MI sudden deaths are due to artery
    spasms. There is no artery blockage, clot
    formation or heart rhythm abnormalities.
  • Magnesium is a natural anti-spasmodic.
  • Magnesium deficiency has been linked to sudden
    cardiac deaths in the US for the past three
  • Magnesium is a natural calcium channel blocker.
    It should be the first line of treatment for
  • An analysis of seven major clinical studies
    showed that intravenous magnesium after acute
    heart attack reduced the risk of death by 55.

Magnesium versus Statins
  • Magnesium-ATP is the controlling factor for the
    enzyme that makes cholesterol and that enzyme is
    targeted for destruction by the statin
    pharmaceutical drugs.
  • Andrea Rosanoff, PhD and Mildred S. Seelig, MD.
    Comparison of Mechanism and Functional Effects of
    Magnesium and Statin Pharmaceuticals Journal of
    the American College of Nutrition, Vol. 23, No.
    5, 501S-505S (2004)
  • Magnesium is a natural statin.
  • Statins affect formation of cholesterol in blood,
    but this cholesterol is required to make
    hormones, and to make cell membranes for all the
    cells in the body, including brain nerve cells.
  • Side effects of statins muscle pain, impotence,
    memory loss, global amnesia, depletion of
    Coenzyme Q10.

Goals of this lecture
  • Dr. Dean will outline a magnesium eating plan and
    supplementation plan to treat
  • heart disease
  • anxiety
  • muscle cramps
  • diabetes
  • women's health issues.

Magnesium deficiency conditions
  • Anxiety and Panic attacks
  • Stress reaction, low blood sugar attack, fear,
    performance anxiety.
  • Adrenaline and noradrenaline from the adrenal
    glands require Magnesium for production.
  • Magnesium deficiency leads to erratic production
    and erratic release of these powerful hormones
  • Chronic Magnesium deficiency leads to adrenal

Magnesium deficiency conditions
  • 2. Asthma
  • Spasming of the bronchial tubes.
  • Bronchial spasms and histamine production (due to
    allergies) increase with Magnesium deficiency.
  • Magnesium relaxes bronchial muscles.
  • Musicians suffer exercise-induced asthma, like
  • Triggers Dust, dampness, and mold.

Magnesium deficiency conditions
  • 3. Blood clots
  • Magnesium prevents blood clots and keeps the
    blood thin - much like aspirin but without the
    side effects.
  • Blood clots in the legs can travel to the heart,
    lungs, or brain.
  • The most common trigger for blood clots in the
    legs is long periods of time sitting confined in

Magnesium deficiency conditions
  • 4. Bowel disease
  • Magnesium deficiency causes constipation
    (toxicity, malabsorption, colitis).
  • Travel upsets diet, sleep, and the normal
    routine and is a trigger for constipation. More
    magnesium is needed when traveling.

Magnesium deficiency conditions
  • 5. Depression
  • Serotonin-the feel-good hormone is dependent on
    Magnesium for its production. Prozac stops the
    breakdown of serotonin in the brain and allows it
    to build up.
  • A Magnesium-deficient brain is more susceptible
    to allergens, excitotoxins (MSG, aspartame),
    chemicals, heavy metals, and foreign substances
    that can cause symptoms of irritability and

Magnesium deficiency conditions
  • 6. Detoxification
  • Magnesium is crucial for the removal of toxic
    substances including heavy metals such as
    mercury, aluminum and lead.

Magnesium deficiency conditions
  • 7. Diabetes
  • Magnesium enhances insulin secretion,
    facilitating sugar metabolism. Without Magnesium
    insulin is not able to transfer glucose into
  • Glucose and insulin build up in the blood causing
    various types of tissue damage.
  • Magnesium improves insulin sensitivity and
    metabolic control in diabetes.

Magnesium deficiency conditions
  • 8. Fatigue
  • An early symptom of Magnesium deficiency is
  • Magnesium is required for the production of ATP,
    the basic energy source in the body.
  • Magnesium deficiency reduces ATP and the power is
    turned off.

Magnesium deficiency conditions
  • 9. Heart disease
  • 30 of angina patients do not have blocked
    arteries but may have an electrical imbalance
    that is driven by Magnesium deficiency.
  • 40-60 of sudden deaths from heart attack occur
    without artery blockage, clot formation or heart
    rhythm abnormalities, from spasms in the arteries
    (magnesium is a natural anti-spasmodic)
  • IV Magnesium should be used in hospitals for
    acute myocardial infarction and cardiac
  • Magnesium is natures calcium channel blocker.

Magnesium deficiency conditions
  • 10. Hypertension
  • Magnesium deficiency causes spasms of blood
    vessels leading to high blood pressure.
  • Diuretics, often the first treatment for BP,
    drain Magnesium as well as potassium.

Magnesium deficiency conditions
  • 11. Hypoglycemia-low blood sugar
  • Magnesium is involved with the secretion of
    insulin from the pancreas and its action on
    blood sugar
  • Insulin is overworked and acts erratically if the
    diet high in sugar and simple carbs.
  • High sugar meal causes high insulin output
    leading to hypoglycemia

Magnesium deficiency conditions
  • 12. Insomnia
  • Sleep-regulating melatonin production is
    disturbed without sufficient Magnesium.
  • Magnesium relaxes muscles.
  • Magnesium enhances a deeper level of sleep and
    dream production.

Magnesium deficiency conditions
  • 14. Migraine
  • Serotonin balance is Magnesium-dependent. And
    deficiency of serotonin can result in migraine
    headaches and depression.
  • IV Magnesium quickly reverses migraines.
  • Magnesium, either alone or with B6 and feverfew
    treat most migraines.

Magnesium deficiency conditions
  • 15. Musculoskeletal conditions
  • Magnesium Prevents and Treats
  • Charlie horse
  • Chronic neck and back pain
  • Fibrositis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Focal Dystonia
  • Muscle spasms
  • Muscle cramps
  • Muscle twitches
  • Restless Leg Syndrome

Magnesium deficiency conditions
  • 16. Nerve problems
  • Magnesium Prevents and Treats
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Diabetic neuropathy
  • Idiopathic neuropathy
  • Central nervous symptoms of vertigo
  • Central nervous symptoms of confusion

Magnesium deficiency conditions
  • 17. Obstetrics and Gynecology
  • Magnesium Prevents and Treats
  • Premenstrual Syndrome
  • Dysmenorrhea (cramping pain during menses
  • Premature contractions
  • Preeclampsia, and eclampsia in pregnancy
  • Pregnancy causes depleted magnesium
  • Lessens the risk of cerebral palsy
  • Lessens the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome
  • Infertility

Magnesium deficiency conditions
  • 18. Raynauds Syndrome
  • Magnesium helps relax the spastic blood vessels
    that cause pain and numbness of the fingers.

Magnesium deficiency conditions
  • 19. Tooth decay
  • Magnesium deficiency causes an unhealthy balance
    of phosphorus and calcium in saliva, which
    damages teeth.

Magnesium deficiency conditions
  • 20. Osteoporosis
  • Calcium is not deposited into bone in the absence
    of sufficient Magnesium and Vitamin D
  • Bisulphonate drugs like Fosamax destroy
    osteoclasts, which removes the repair and
    remodeling cells of the bone making them brittle
    and MORE susceptible to fracture.
  • Fosamax is associated with osteonecrosis of the

Calcium Overload
  • The calcium-magnesium ratio is out of balance in
    our modern diet, creating greater magnesium
  • Foods have more calcium than magnesium because of
    soil depletion
  • Magnesium is depleted by processing and cooking
  • High dose calcium supplements makes it even worse
  • 61 ratio of calcium to magnesium is standard
  • 21 ratio of calcium to magnesium is textbook
  • 2 parts calcium3 parts magnesium ratio is
    necessary for treating a magnesium deficiency

Calcium Toxicity
  • Calcium is promoted to the exclusion of all other
  • Is excess calcium the cause of an increase in
    heart disease in women?
  • Calcium toxicity causes gall stones, kidney
    stones, heel spurs, fibromyalgia, calcification
    in breast cysts because there is not enough
    magnesium to keep calcium in solution
  • At the Bristol Cancer Center in England, on
    autopsy, every woman dying of bowel cancer had
    the lumen of the bowel full of toxic carbonate
    from calcium carbonate.

The Consequences of Magnesium Deficiency
Mg Deficiency Unrecognized
  • In medical school the biochemistry of magnesium
    was very clear but we were not told to apply this
    knowledge clinically.
  • Only 1 of the total body magnesium is in the
  • That level is guarded closely to maintain a
    healthy heart beat making blood tests inaccurate
  • A ionized magnesium test is not available to the
  • With the safety margin of magnesium, people can
    take it for symptoms and watch for improvement

100 Symptoms of Magnesium Deficiency
  • On page 16 of The Magnesium Miracle Ive
    outlined 100 factors in 68 categories that help
    identify magnesium deficiency.
  • Symptoms range from alcohol intake, anger,
    angina, anxiety, arrhythmia and asthma to

    brochure listing these important magnesium
    deficiency factors as a guide for you and your

Magnesium Requirements
  • Amount of Magnesium in the diet then and now
  • 500 mg of magnesium in 1900
  • 150 mg of magnesium in 2008
  • RDA is 350-400 mg. Its too low!
  • Double and triple amounts of magnesium are needed
  • People with high stress People in
  • Type A personalities People on poor diets
  • Athletes and musicians Coffee Drinkers
  • People on medications People eating sugar
  • People having surgery People drinking alcohol

Magnesium Eating Plan
  • Eat significant amounts of magnesium rich foods
    that are organic, uncooked, unprocessed
  • Seaweed
  • Collards and kale (deep leafy greens)
  • Whole grains
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Make a blender salad with water, collards, sea
    salt and sunflower seeds for a high magnesium

Take Oral Magnesium
  • In the health food market, according to Dr. Paris
    Kidd, chelated magnesium is only 2 better
    absorbed than oral
  • Magnesium is best absorbed if it is dissolved in
    water-especially warm water
  • Take magnesium in divided doses to avoid the
    laxative effect
  • Take 200 mg of magnesium citrate one to four
    times per day
  • It is almost impossible to overdose on magnesium

Magnesium Side effects
  • Loose stool when taking too much at one time
  • Contraindications
  • It lowers blood pressurehigh amounts may not be
    good for someone with extremely low blood
    pressure or extremely low pulse rate (someone
    needing a pacemaker)
  • Kidney failure
