For nearly twenty years I suffered with migraines. I tried many prescription medications, but none of them worked and they all produced unacceptable side effects. Around 1998 (at 34 years old), my blood pressure was becoming elevated, my average resting heart rate was 95-100 bpm. My migraines were more frequent and severe, and I had started having frequent chest pains, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, and overwhelming fatigue. I would go to the doctor's only to be told that they could not find anything wrong.
Then, in May 2000, my blood pressure was extremely low and my heart was beating so fast until it began to spasm rather than beat. I was rushed to the hospital by ambulance and I spent nearly a week in the hospital undergoing testing. When I left the hospital, I was hunched over with barely enough strength to walk, and had no real answers as to what had happened to me. A week or two later I was back in the hospital with the same symptoms. After that, it seemed as if everything was triggering panic attacks--sugary and starchy foods, certain types of exercise, viral infections, migraines, excessive heat, and, of course, everyday stressors. Finally, I decided that "anxiety" was no longer an acceptable answer for what I was experiencing. I saw a psychologist who told me that many people who get panic attacks also have a condition called Mitral Valve Prolapse (MVP). I read many books and articles about MVP even though I was never diagnosed with it.Read more ›
Both books are great resources on magnesium but there are some very important differences between them:
"The Magnesium Factor" spends a lot of time discussing the results and debating the conclusions of magnesium research. It also goes into great detail about the biochemical processes that are involved in various magnesium-dependent reactions in the body. While this is important data, it may be overkill for the average reader. In my opinion, this book would be better suited to health professionals or those with scientific backgrounds who need and/or want more detailed information.
"The Magnesium Miracle" by Carolyn Dean provides the pertinent research and biochemical information in a concise and easily readable format that would likely be more accessible to the layperson. This is the book I would recommend to family and friends.
