Since reading this book we both are now taking 400mg of magnesium a day and the changes in just a couple of weeks have been incredible. For the first time in probably 10 years we are both sleeping through the night like babies...almost every night...and dreaming crazy dreams! Before my husband always said he never dreamed and we learned that is a symptom of mag deficiency. Now we are both so much ore relaxed and calm. It has taken the edge off, and the twitches and soreness is dramatically less. But the most exciting for us has been his blood pressure numbers. They are way down. From the 160's/high 90's to the 120's/low 80's and 70's and even yesterday he had a lower number in the 60's. Unbelievable for him.
I have to mention that our symptoms were actually getting a little worse right before we started on Magnesium because I had read that the BP meds were types of diuretics. So I found a natural diuretic in hibiscus (Jamaican) tea and it does work well to flush out the water. But what I learned from this book is that diuretics can cause dehydration. This can thicken the blood and can actually cause high BP and also constipation and flushes out the minerals, making magnesium levels even lower. And we both were drinking hibiscus tea (which is so delicious by the way) daily. So now that we learned through this book how diuretics can make things worse, we are limiting our hibiscus tea for when we feel we have overloaded on salt when eating out. But we will be sticking with the magnesium supplements. It is like turning back the clock 20 years. My husband is like a new man.
I am not discrediting doctors, I think very highly them and have a lot of respect for their knowledge, but NO ONE mentioned to us to try magnesium before suggesting going on meds. Either they don't know about natural remedies or liability risk encourages them to write a script. Maybe the fix is just too simple. Or maybe it doesn't work for everyone so they suggest it to no one. Do you own research. You have to take control of your own health. If you've gotten this far in your research to be reading these reviews, you are on the right track! Get this book!

Mar 2017 - Update: We are still taking our 400 mg of magnesium a day. We both recently had our blood work done and had magnesium levels tested just to make sure we weren't over doing it and it showed our mag levels were perfectly normal. (But I read that the blood test isn't that accurate and one could still be deficient even if the levels show normal.) And I wanted to update that my husband's blood pressure is consistently NORMAL. He continues to exercise, has cut way back on sugar, and mostly is keeping the extra 20 lbs off. He no longer consistently snores, thanks to the weight loss I suspect. We both are sleeping better than we have for years thanks to that and the magnesium. And on a positive note for me, I no longer struggle with constipation. I have celiac disease and constipation comes with the territory. But the nightly magnesium dose has cured that. I can eat chocolate again (which is very constipating) without a problem. That alone is worth it for me. :) We are no longer experiencing any muscle twitches or mysterious aches and my husband consistently says how good he feels. It is truly amazing. He is so much more mellow and able to enjoy life, no longer bug-eyed and on the edge all the time. And I want to mention that we take Magnesium Asporotate (Vitacost) which is a blend of different sources of magnesium. Read about which ones are best absorbed. Magnesium Chloride is also well absorbed. But if all you can get is Magnesium Citrate, it is better than nothing. This book will tell you which ones are better absorbed and which ones aren't - Mag. Oxide isn't. And take a B6 when you take your mag or a good natural-sourced raw B-Complex. That also helps with absorption. But most importantly, read this book. I am not an expert, only giving our experiences, but she is!
After reading through the comments and also responding to what people have said back to me (my own family): I wanted to add this:
PLEASE stop thinking in terms of "this is yet another pill or drink". You can get easily enough daily magnesium in less than 30 seconds: Apply magnesium Chloride TOPICALLY to your skin. It might sting, but you can dilute it with lotion or water. Not trying to sell a product, but trying to give people an idea of "what works!", I am right now using Trace Mineral Research Ionic Magnesium (GNC, and Amazon), and putting some in a glass spray bottle with essential oils. Magnesium oil makes an EXCELLENT deodorant (most mineral salts do), and you spray it and rub it in. Next I use the dropper and put 1 dropper on my body (with lotion) and rub it in. DONE! I can use more if I want.
By far, this is the best book I've read in about 8 months. I think they should give Carolyn Dean a key to the city, and make her Queen for a Day. That is how important I think her contribution is her. If physicians' goals are to improve the quality of life, she has made a huge contribution. I am extremely grateful to have read this book.
That said: EVERYONE should read this book. I mean it. In three days, I have told 15 people about it. I am 62 and I found myself in the pages. In the past three days, my supplementation with magnesium (mostly chloride, applied topically) has brought about a large change.
But this review is not really about me--if you will read this, apply the concepts, and use the products (yes, I know she is pushing her own product--who cares?), you can save a life.
One of the stories in the book was about sports players who were given calcium (they should have had magnesium, adminstered long before) on a hot day, and there was at least one death. Reading this, the scene came to life for me (I was, an am, still horrified). I've seen young people die in extreme situations because a "knowledgable adult" told them what to do.
Then the story about the "model" patient who lived a medially ideal life, and ate "correctly", yet still had a heart attack. Magnesium changed the picture for her.
Then the concept of the Monday 9 am heart attack, because of a lack of magnesium. Why women crave chocolate during their periods (cocoa has magnesium).
Finally the realization that so much of what I am experiencing (I am a healthy, non smoking, 62 year old adult, taking no prescriptions), was exactly what was being described in the book.
No more. I am changing this equation, starting today. Because of the additional magnesium, my energy has gone way up, and my sleep is much better, and I don't need naps (I was taking extra D3, and wondering why my bones hurt, but not after taking magnesium), and I am now going to purse a more healthy regimen.
