06-21-21 Safe Strategies for High Blood Pressure– Carolyn Dean MD ND
High blood pressure aka hypertension is an elevation of blood pressure suffered by more than 100 million people around the world. Most often, high blood pressure is diagnosed during a routine physical exam. It presents no distinguishing signs or symptoms unless the condition is very advanced, in which case headache, dizziness, and blurred vision can occur.
The “2017 Guideline for High Blood Pressure in Adults” set the guidelines for diagnosing hypertension so low that half of the US population suffers from high blood pressure. The three doctors who set these guidelines all have citations in the literature for treating hypertension with medications. These three, as far as I can determine, without input from public health doctors, nutritionists, naturopaths, integrative medicine doctors, or preventive medicine specialists, declared that a BP reading of 130/80 rather than 140/90 is the new cut off point for hypertension.
All doctors have to do is read the literature about magnesium deficiency. A review paper by Fox, et al, in 2001 described the reasons why magnesium deficiency is mistaken for hypertension:
- Magnesium deficiency causes a dysregulation of the sodium-magnesium exchange, resulting in higher intracellular sodium and thus higher blood pressure.
- A relatively low magnesium level creates an intracellular imbalance between calcium and magnesium, which results in increased spasms in the smooth muscle of arteries and therefore increased blood pressure.
- Magnesium deficiency causes insulin resistance, which in turn causes hyperinsulinemia, resulting in hypertension, diabetes, and hyperlipidemia.
What is remotely scientific about declaring that several million people are hypertensive without any individual testing or physical and nutritional assessment? At the risk of beating a dead and magnesium-deficient horse, I’ll comment on a Medscape video interview about the 2017 guidelines with two Cardiologists at the American Heart Association (AHA) Scientific Sessions. In the interview transcript, this quote was at the top of the session, “The day where the physician does everything is long past. We’re just too busy.”
Fortunately, in the last 10 years I have been busy providing the public with health education and safe strategies and our customers are enjoying the benefits:
Sandra: I have been on pretty much all your products for the last year and couple months. I must say, you saved my life. Literally. ReMag has calmed my spasms in my neck, calves and feet. Actually, it has relaxed all my muscle tension. My blood pressure has lowered to 115/75. It was usually 140/85 I was never a sound sleeper and would have a difficult time falling asleep and now I don’t even remember getting into bed at night and sleep like a baby 8-9 hrs. I thank the Lord every morning for you and your products. I also use the ReMag Lotion at night as a hand lotion and love it.
Barbara: I have been going low and slow with ReMag. I have now worked up to 3/4 teaspoon in my 32 oz water bottle along with 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt. I feel as if the key takeaways for me so far are a decrease in my restless legs at night and remembering my dreams. I am on a medication for high blood pressure, so before I started ReMag I took readings for several days. BP hovered around 123/73 maybe a bit higher. BP since starting ReMag is hovering around 115/68. Yay! Taking these results to my primary care doctors appointment next week.
Sharon: I have been on Dr Dean’s ReMag and all the Completement Formulas for ONE YEAR!!!! Wow! My health has improved tremendously…..no more heart palpitations, no more leg/feet cramps, anxiety is gone, thyroid TSH levels down greatly, blood pressure has lowered, and my sleep has improved immensely. So grateful for Dr. Dean and ReMag. She has saved my life. No drugs here just HER FORMULAS. Love you Dr. Dean.
Linda: Friday will be the end of my fourth week on The Total Body ReSet (ReMag, ReMyte, ReAline, ReStructure, RnA ReSet Drops). Although very fatigued today, yesterday I had a great day. I had forgotten what it was like to feel good. It was more than just that though. I was aware of my entire body being rejuvenated. I wasn’t struggling to breathe when I did my treadmill. My thinking was not foggy and the night before I got six hours of straight-through sleep. I haven’t slept more than 2 ½ hrs straight for quite a few years now. Also no AFib for eight days. I have been a very sick little puppy for so long. My husband, a year ago, was thinking about making arrangements for a burial plot. I now have hope I will be around a few more years.
Let me be clear – if you have been prescribed a hypertensive drug therapy from your doctor, I do not want you to stop taking your medication and start using poorly made magnesium pill you get at Walgreens. On tonight’s show I will go into details about how to incorporate magnesium and other essential nutrients into any hypertension program. And for those who enjoy stable blood pressure performance you’ll learn the many ways that consistent, responsible magnesium supplementation into will benefit the body in a multitude of ways while simultaneously maintaining healthy blood pressure.
