Customer Reviews

The book is easy to read and very informative.
Lawrence
Dr. Dean explains how magnesium can be defeated if other minerals are too high in comparative percentages, and how our soils have been depleted of magnesium.

I knew magnesium was important from other books I had read, and other classes I had taken, but I didn't realize how many things reduce the amount in the body such as, exercise, sweating, stress, prescription drugs, fluoride, and calcium supplementation. Magnesium is necessary to properly metabolize calcium, and it keeps calcium in solution in the body, so it prevents calcifications, which are quite common.

Magnesium is therapeutic in treating the following:
1. Anxiety and panic attacks- because it helps keep adrenal stress hormones under control
2. Asthma - both histamine production and bronchial spasms increase with magnesium deficiency
3. Blood clots - magnesium prevents blood clots and thins blood without side effects.
4. Bowel disease - magnesium deficiency is one of the main causes of constipation.
5. Cystitis - bladder spasms are worsened by a magnesium deficiency.
6. Depression - serotonin (mood elevator) is dependent on magnesium for its production and function.
7. Heavy metals - magnesium is essential for the removal of heavy metals such as aluminum and lead.
8. Diabetes - magnesium facilitates the production of insulin and the transfer of glucose into the cells.
9. Fatigue - magnesium deficiency affects hundreds of enzymes, and fatigue is one of the first signs of a magnesium deficiency.
10. Heart disease - The heart requires magnesium as does all muscles.
11. Hypertension, hypoglycemia, insomnia, kidney disease, migraines, nerve problems, PMS, osteoporosis, Raynaud's syndrome, and tooth decay are all aggravated, and sometimes caused by a magnesium deficiency.

Calcium causes muscles to contract, while magnesium gives them the ability to relax.

After reading this book, along with also having first-hand knowledge about the importance of magnesium, which indeed is a "miracle," I cannot understand why more information is not coming forward on this most important nutrient, the missing link in regaining your health. Back last winter, my wife became concerned when I had difficulty getting out of a chair, was having horrible hip pain and back pain. She researched, then started growing concerned that maybe I was showing early signs of Parkinson's. Needless to say, the research turned up several important things, but most importantly, magnesium deficiency seemed to be a number one factor causing many illnesses. Around this time frame, we found out about magnesium w/SRT (magnesium malate; malic acid), and it literally changed our lives overnight. That magnesium w/SRT is the one that was definitely a magnesium miracle for us. Then, around this same point in time, just about the same time we found magnesium w/SRT, we also found out about Dr. Carolyn Dean's book, and this has been such a blessing. You can tell others how it changed you overnight, but if you're deficient, it really will, and most people are deficient in magnesium. This book is so well written, so comprehensive in revealing the importance of the benefits of magnesium and just what a magnesium deficiency causes. This book is not only written for health-care professionals, but it's also for laypeople such as my wife and I. This book is for everyone. It's for people with depression, chest pain, migraines, muscle spasms, nerve problems, asthma, leg cramps, fatigue, hypertension, insomnia, and the list goes on and on. For the first time in over 20 years, my wife is free of back pain and horrible muscle spasms in her back.Read more ›

Magnesium is extremely important for good health. Yet for far too many years this vital mineral has been largely overlooked by most doctors. Shockingly, most laboratory blood tests do not even measure magnesium status although magnesium is involved as an essential factor in more aspects of health than any other mineral. Since magnesium status is rarely measured, most doctors don't know when their patients are deficient in magnesium, even though about 80% of Americans are deficient in this essential mineral. And magnesium deficiency is a significant factor -- often the primary factor -- in many severe illnesses including heart attacks and other forms of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, anxiety and panic attacks, depression, fatigue, migraines and other headaches, osteoporosis, insomnia, and most cases of muscular problems. Because magnesium deficiency is largely overlooked, millions of Americans suffer needlessly from the foregoing ailments or are having their symptoms treated with expensive drugs (which often have unpleasant or dangerous side effects) when they could be cured with magnesium supplementation. This excellent and easily-readable new book by Dr. Dean (an up-to-date revision and expansion of her ground-breaking book The Miracle of Magnesium) discusses these and other important aspects of this vital mineral in detail. Everyone who is concerned about his or her health should acquire and read this very important book, even if you already own its earlier version. So should their doctors. And the vast majority of Americans should increase their magnesium intake by suitable diet and appropriate supplementation as Dr. Dean recommends. Those who do will very likely find themselves free of many ailments they may now have.
