05-24-21 MAGNESIUM AND MINERALS – Kickstart Your Life– Carolyn Dean MD ND 

In medical school, I studied acupuncture as a second-year elective. I also read all the health books I could get my hands on. After med school and during my internship I began my naturopathic training, so when I went into practice I immediately incorporated  acupuncture, herbal medicine, homeopathy, nutrition, and vitamin and mineral supplements.

Even before medical school, I read everything I could about natural health. After almost 50 years of study, I’m convinced that magnesium and mineral supplementation is the most valuable healing tool you can use. It’s the easiest to implement, the most cost effective to use, and the most valuable for your health. But it depends on fully absorbed minerals having access to your cells.

Magnesium and minerals charge us up and can help us feel better fast.  Not only do minerals provide the necessary building blocks for the structure and function of the body, they are also required for the electrical conductivity that occurs between all cells. The electrical or energetic message that minerals send is created from very small amounts of minerals, but it results in a huge impact. The nervous system uses electrical energy to transmit messages (nerve impulses) from one cell to another. The muscles are similarly activated to create all movement – large and small.

According to Dr. Roderick MacKinnon of the Rockefeller University, electrical signals have many roles to play in the body. They control the heart rate, regulate hormones, and transfer information from one cell to the next in the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. The end result is muscle movement, nerve firing, glandular secretion, excretion, temperature regulation, and even thought.

The electricity in the body is very real. It can be measured by several medical instruments, like the EKG or EEG. Those measurements are made possible due to cells having what’s known as a “membrane potential,” which is the difference in electricity between the inside and the outside of the cell. The amount of this potential ranges from 70 to 90 millivolts. The cell membrane is a double layer of fat and protein. The fats insulate the membrane, and the proteins create ion channels to transport ions in and out of the cell. The mineral ion pump and ion channels are compared to a set of batteries and resistors, inserted in the membrane, that create a voltage difference between the two sides of the membrane.

What kind of symptoms accompany mineral imbalances?

  • Anxiety
  • Blood pressure changes
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Dizziness, especially when standing up suddenly
  • Changes in appetite or body weight
  • Confusion and difficulty concentrating
  • Headaches
  • Muscle weakness, aches or twitching 
  • Extreme thirst
  • Insomnia
  • Fever
  • Heart palpitations or irregular heartbeats
  • Digestive issues such as diarrhea or constipation
  • Joint pain or numbness

If you suspect you have a magnesium or mineral deficiency, the best course of action is a two-pronged approach – get immediate relief through an effective hydration and supplementation protocol and identify a long-term strategy by assessing your current mineral levels and determining a sustainable plan of remineralization.

Tonight, we’ll talk with Dr. Carolyn Dean about both strategies -along with a wide range of other health topics and clinically recommended nutritional assets to support your body. You will love hearing the beneficial interactions with our callers and hosts alike including the body/mind connection, identifying the ‘conflict’ in the ‘conflict basis’ of disease and much more!!
