The Magnesium Factor
by Mildred Seelig, M.D. and Andrea Rosanoff, Ph.D.
How one simple nutrient can prevent, treat, and help to
reverse high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke,
diabetes, and other chronic conditions.
This important book brings to light an often overlooked
but central factor in some of the most prevalent and
serious disorders that affect Americans today: magnesium
deficiency. Written by a medical doctor and researcher who
is considered to be the world's leading expert on the
actions and uses of this vital mineral, The Magnesium
Factor explains how magnesium deficiencies develop, why
they are so widespread, and how they translate into
metabolic disruptions that ultimately threaten the health
of virtually every bodily system. The author then details
how to determine whether you have, or are at risk for, this
problem-and what you can do about it.
Backed by the latest scientific research, yet written in
a clear, accessible style, here is the authoritative source
for information on a topic of critical interest for all

Author of Lower Your Blood Pressure in Eight
More than seventy-five years ago, medical scientists
declared magnesium to be an essential nutrient,
indispensable to life. When this mineral is part of your
diet, you are guarding against-and helping to
alleviate-health threats such as heart disease, stroke,
osteoporosis, diabetes, depression, arthritis, and asthma.
But while research continues to reaffirm magnesium's
irreplaceable contribution to good health, many Americans
remain dangerously deficient.
In The Miracle of Magnesium, Dr. Carolyn Dean, an
authority on this mineral who has used it with dramatic
success in her own practice, explains the vital role that
magnesium plays in the control of many serious
ailments-from painful muscle spasms and bladder problems to
traumatic brain injury and complications of pregnancy and
childbirth. Inside you will discover
- How diets and lifestyles can create a dangerous
- Which magnesium-rich foods keep your vital organs
healthy and which to avoid
- Why other nutrients, including calcium, need
magnesium to become potent
- What vitamins and minerals work with magnesium to
treat specific ailments
- Why prescription medicines, such as birth control
pills, can deplete magnesium
- Which magnesium supplements are best for you
Whether you need help with a serious health problem or
merely want to protect the good health you already enjoy,
The Miracle of Magnesium will answer all your
questions. It may even save your life.

Breakthrough Program That Can Help End Your Pain
by Alexander Mauskop, MD and Barry Fox, Ph.D.
GET RELIEF FROM MIGRAINES NOW WITH A NEW, BREAKTHROUGH
TREATMENT! Some twenty-five million Americans suffer from
migraines, those excruciating headaches that can last for
hours or even days. The symptoms can include debilitating
pain, extreme sensitivity to sound and light, sweats,
double vision, nausea and vomiting, slurred speech, and
more. Current treatments and prescription drugs fail to
help millions of these patients. But now there's a safe,
all-natural "triple therapy" program that can relieve the
pain-and often even prevent recurrences-of migraines. A
combination of three easy-to-find, over-the-counter
supplements (magnesium, vitamin B2, and the herb feverfew)
this scientifically proven remedy was developed by Dr.
Alexander Mauskop, one of the nation's leading migraine
experts, and has already helped thousands. Discover:
- Dr. Mauskop's patient-tested, seven-step program for

Heart Healthy Magnesium: your nutritional key to
by James B. Pierce, Ph.D.
Do you suffer from high blood pressure, irregular
heartbeat, or chest pains? Do you get unexplained cramps or
pains in your legs or back? Do you have trouble keeping
your hands and feet warm? Has your doctor told you that you
may be at risk for heart attack or stroke? If your answer
is "yes, " you may be surprised to learn that a deficiency
of one simple mineral - magnesium - may be at the root of
your problem. In Heart Healthy Magnesium, author James B.
Pierce, Ph.D., explains how a surprising array of health
problems - from insomnia, fading memory, and stiff, aching
muscles, all the way to high blood pressure, arrhythmia,
angina, heart attack, and stroke - may all be related to
inadequate levels of magnesium in the body's muscle cells.
Using clear non-technical language, Dr. Pierce explains the
ways in which magnesium works to maintain the healthy
functioning of the body as a whole, and of the
cardiovascular system in particular. He discusses why and
how magnesium deficiencies develop, how to know whether you
are one of the many people affected by this condition, and
what can happen when the body becomes starved for this
essential mineral. Most important, he tells about the
remarkable results that have been attained by using
magnesium to promote heart health, and relates his own
personal experience with cardiovascular disease. Dr. Pierce
gives easy-to-follow guidelines for developing your own
comprehensive and personalized nutritional program,
including up-to-date information on diet, exercise, and
stress reduction. Heart Healthy Magnesium provides an
accurate account of the breakthrough scientific research
that is now underway. It offers an approach to
cardiovascular wellness that involves no costly drugs and
no undesirable side effects - just a simple, safe, and
effective program that can help you feel better than you
have in years.

A valuable source of information and research
This comprehensive treatise by international authorities
provide a major reference for all those interested in any
aspect of magnesium.
Magnesium plays an
essential role in a wide range of fundamental cellular
reactions. Hence it is not surprising that deficiency in the
organism or disturbances of magnesium homeostasis may lead to
serious biochemical and symptomatic changes. Recent surveys in
industrialised countries suggest that a signivicant number of
people consume less than international dietary reference
intakes and there is emerging evidence that habitually low
intakes of Mg are associated with etiologic factors in various
This book is the
edited proceedings of Mag2000 the 9th International Magnesium
Symposium organised with the assistance of the National
Institute of Agricultural Research (INRA), held in Vichy
(France), September 2000. The meeting provided a forum to
present recent advances on the functional role and metabolism
of magnesium, and applications in the fields of nutrition,
medicine and agriculture. The contributions cover a broad
spectrum of material from the total organism through individual
organ systems and down to the cellular, subcellular and
molecular levels. The book comprises the reports from basic and
clinical scientists who have been selected because of their
recognised expertise and also original voluntary papers.
International leaders in the field of magnesium have accepted
to express their views not only on the major results obtained
in the past years but also by pointing out new
is rapidly moving and it is clear that in the next few years of
the millennium there will be many advances in understanding the
role of magnesium.
