By D. R. Schryer on July 17, 2005
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Dr. Cohen's book does the public a great service in discussing the importance of magnesium for maintaining a healthy level of blood pressure. However, as Dr. Carolyn Dean discusses in her very important book The Miracle of Magnesium, magnesium deficiency is a significant factor -- often the major factor -- in many other severe illnesses including heart attacks and other forms of heart disease, asthma, anxiety and panic attacks, depression, fatigue, diabetes, migraines and other headaches, osteoporosis, insomnia, and most cases of muscular problems. Unfortunately, the majority of Americans are deficient in magnesium to some degree and many are severely deficient. Because magnesium deficiency is largely overlooked by orthodox medical doctors, 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. While I recommend Dr. Cohen's book, I recommend even more highly Dr. Dean's more comprehensive (but easy to read) book The Miracle of Magnesium. Getting the right level of magnesium can not only mitigate a large number of seemingly-unrelated ailments, it may save your life.

This useful little book is in the same series as one I reviewed earlier (The Magnesium Solution for Migraine Sufferers).
High blood pressure accounts for more trips to the doctor than any other condition. Almost always, patients are put on prescription drugs. As Dr. Peter Galgut said so eloquently on [...] ALL drugs have side-effects. [This is no small matter: side effects to prescription drugs in hospital are the 4th leading cause of death in the United States, according to Lazarou in JAMA. 1998 Apr 15;279(15):1200-5.]
Moreover, doctors do not like to admit that, using drugs to lower blood pressure, does not reduce your risk of cardio-vascular disease to the same extent of someone who has the lower level naturally. In other words, drugs are dealing with the symptoms not the cause.
Dr. Cohen looks at one probable underlying cause of high blood pressure -- magnesium deficiency. He describes how up to 75% of Americans are deficient in this mineral and as a consequence are sick in many ways. Doctors are widely ignorant about magnesium and tend to think of drugs as first resort rather than last.
Dr. Cohen explains how magnesium is an essential micronutrient in maintaining suppleness in the walls of blood vessels. In magnesium deficiency, the vessels become stiffer and so do not absorb the blood pressure surges properly.
Dr. Cohen reviews many of the other lifestyle factors that are responsible for high blood pressure. These include obesity, lack of exercise, low fiber intake, salt, alcohol and smoking. However, even correcting these matters (particularly in black Americans) is not very effective; magnesium must be corrected too.
Dr. Cohen does not claim that fixing magnesium deficiency will "cure" high blood pressure.

A little "pocket book" the kind you would see at a grocery checkout.

But the data presented about this vital mineral magnesium most persons would have to locate and research the various books and articles the author has included in his bibliography to find.

The general public AND most doctors are unaware of the number of problems magnesium deficiency is currently causing us.

I wish everybody could read what this very qualified author says in this little book. I took his advice and it changed my life too.

Get it. Its very affordable and your health issues may take a turn for the better.

I should of bought this book years ago. My high blood pressure has always been a mystery. I eat well, drink adult beverages rarely, exercise six days a week, low weight and I still have high blood pressure. Not one doctor ever told me about magnesium. Since I have introduced magnesium into my diet, along with a few other supplements my blood pressure is now to a level that I do not have to take my high blood pressure medicine. This book should be in every Doctors office.

There's enough research in this small book to provide a basis for discussion w/your Dr. concerning supplementation with magnesium. I take 3 Magnesium Taurate (from Cardiovascular Research) per day for heart health and also sleep. It has definetly helped keep me asleep without my usual awakenings. (Chelated mag. is absorbed w/o diarhea) I wish the book was updated with the latest on the various types/brands of magnesium but is surely contains enough info to decide if you may benefit from supplementation.

I can attest to the benefits of Magnesium for High Blood Pressure.
For the last several years I had elevated BP (circa 140/95) due to about 30 excess lbs. In fact, my Doctor was ready to prescribe and put me on Blood Pressure medicine.

Then I read this book along with The Magnesium Miracle and started adding
a few drops of liquid Magnesium Chloride to my drinking water...when I returned
to the Doctor for a sinus infection - I was shocked to learn that my Blood Pressure
had completely returned to normal - and has STAYED in the normal range
(circa 120/80) since adding Magnesium to my Water. It is also a natural relaxant.
Anyone who suffers from nervousness and anxiety should take Magnesium supplements.

Now - I don't go a day without Magnesium !
