The Magnesium Factor

by Mildred Seelig, M.D. and Andrea Rosanoff, Ph.D.

Book Description

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 health-conscious individuals.

The Miracle of Magnesium

by Carolyn Dean, M.D., N.D.

Editorial Reviews

Book Description

"Magnesium is indeed the unsung hero and is a key nutriceutical that everybody needs to know about. . . . This book needs to be read by any individual wishing to improve their quality of life. . . . Dr Dean has the best credentials in bringing solutions to those suffering from the hidden magnesium disorders that affect most of us."
Author of Lower Your Blood Pressure in Eight Weeks

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 magnesium deficiency
  • 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.

by Alexander Mauskop, MD and Barry Fox, Ph.D.

Editorial Reviews

Book Description

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.

Heart Healthy Magnesium: your nutritional key to cardiovascular wellness

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.

Focuses on the molecular and biochemical aspects of magnesium in the cell that relate to its regulatory role. Three distinct audiences are addressed: biochemists and pharmacologists studying the processes in which magnesium has a pivotal role; clinicians who recognize that magnesium deficiency, as well as that of potassium, is associated with several conditions; and researchers investigating the role of metal ions in the regulation of biological processes, or the role of biomolecular interactions in cellular signalling and control.

Advances in Magnesium Research:
Nutrition and Health

Editors Yves Rayssiguier, André Mazur and Jean Durlach

A valuable source of information and research

This comprehensive treatise by international authorities will
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 metabolic diseases.

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 directions.

Magnesium research 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.

This book will help to stimulate research and encourage progress in this advancing field.
