“Everyone Knows Someone Who Needs This Information!” (TM)

I want to revisit low thyroid, as it is a possible source of an incomplete or inaccurate diagnosis for diabetes! Yes, you read that right. Let’s learn more from Dr. Robert Rowen, MD and from Dr. David Brownstein, MD. The first article is here: Diabetes and Thyroid Connection

Dr. Rowen asks in a recent email:

Is your diabetes really hypothyroidism?

If you have hard-to-treat Type 2 diabetes, your problem might not be insulin and your pancreas, but rather, it could be your thyroid!

Research scientists know that both humans and animals exposed to cold temperatures get high blood pressure. Next, they wondered if diabetic mice exposed to cold would get the problem even faster than normal mice.

They placed diabetic and control mice in a constant 41 degrees F environment. The normal mice survived, while the diabetic mice died (in just two hours)!

The team surmised that the diabetic animals died because they couldn’t maintain their body heat — which is regulated by their thyroid gland.

In good scientific fashion, the researchers decided to take it to the next step. They wondered if giving the diabetic animals thyroid hormone might help them withstand the cold.

So, they administered thyroid hormone to the diabetic mice. Those mice increased their body temperature AND even more interestingly, they also had a significant drop in their blood sugar within two hours (and a 50% blood-sugar decrease within four hours)!

The researchers then looked at blood sugar levels at the start of the study, and in the diabetic animals, they found the level had been five times normal! They found that the thyroid levels in these animals were also low.

Diabetes affects at least 150 million people worldwide, and that’s an understatement, as many people do NOT know they are diabetic.

In Oklahoma, where this research was conducted, there are over 268,500 cases of human diabetes. Most of these people, at any age, are obese or overweight;  most can cure it with a proper diet and moderate exercise, alone.

However, Dr. Rowen says that in his practice, he has  seen a number of people resistant to a simple dietary fix. And, there is also a group of adult diabetics who are thin. Yes, you can be thin and be hypothyroid (low thyroid). You can also be heavy, with low thyroid as a contributing factor to that overweight condition — often ascribed to your “diabetes”.

If you have Type 2 diabetes, at any age, then get your doctor to check your thyroid level by blood tests, to include a “free T3, free T4 and TSH” (and Dr. Brownstein insists on these and a few more lab tests: reverse T3, antithyroglobulin and antimicrosomal antibodies … and I think and knowing your Iodine level would be useful). Do not allow your doctor to just order a TSH test (it’s notoriously inaccurate).

However, Dr. Rowen uses the tests and learns a lot because he also compares the results to his patient’s basal body temperature. What’s that?

It’s the important lab test you take yourself as Dr. Broda Barnes, MD, famous endocrinologist in the early 20th century, described.

Dr. Rowen and Dr. Brownstein both ask you to check your “under the tongue” temperature the moment you open your eyes in the morning, three days in a row (several days away from your menstrual period, for women).

You have to have a Basal Thermometer (a special one from the pharmacy — with a numbering scale that let’s you see the tiniest changes in the temperature range that you need to understand).

Shake the mercury down the night before. Have a clock where you register the time. Open your eyes and reach for the thermometer and look at the clock. Do not move, except to breathe, until the 2 or 3 minutes are up.

Your morning, without movement, “basal temperature” should be at least 97.8F. If it’s not, see your integrative physician immediately!

What’s likely needed then? A prescription for T3 (as used in this study) might help your low thyroid and diabetes all in one go. Do NOT let any physician put you on synthetic thyroid preparations! Read more on that next time.

Meanwhile, Dr. Brownstein, MD alerts us to the facts that:
“Your body is composed of 70-80% water, and your brain is closer to 85% water!”

And, thyroid problems, like all illnesses, cannot be solved without getting sufficient water in your diet.

So, here’s how to know if you’re drinking enough water:

Do you have any of these signs of dehydration?

Fatigue
Dry tongue
Coated tongue
Vertical ridges on your nails
Dry skin
Poor skin elasticity

Even if you don’t notice any of these signs, Dr. Brownstein says you could still be water-deficient. It’s extremely common, especially in those with thyroid issues, and maybe that helps to account for that famous “diabetic” thirst!

Here’s an important formula for your recommended water intake:

Take your weight (in pounds) and divide in half.
That amount (in fluid ounces) is your recommended water intake.
That number divided by 8 equals the number of 8 ounce-sized glasses of water you should drink per day.

This process probably works for metric, too, but confirm this with your physician.

I recommend getting a big water bottle and loading it up in the morning. Then, carry it with you, while sipping on it through the day. That’s what I do.

Also, Dr. Brownstein addresses tips to prevent water loss that could lead to dehydration. All liquids are not equal. Only water counts to hydrate you, the rest dehydraye your tissues, in varying degrees. He says:

___   “Don’t overload on caffeine”  . . . (I say, try not to use caffeine, except for 2 cups of green tea a day)
___   “Don’t drink a lot of soda”  . . . (I say, don’t drink any! It’s VERY pH acidic.)
___   “Take it easy on the alcoholic beverages”  . . . ( I say “Why use them?” They are Carbs and do affect your blood-sugar levels, rob you of minerals and vitamins and stress your liver.) Get the “goodness” of wine by eating red organic grapes, instead!

Dr. Brownstein and I recommend that you use a water filter that removes fluoride and chlorine as well as bacteria and parasites. Tap water and bottled water (in plastic bottles) contain chemicals potentially harmful to your thyroid.

Now, I have yet to find a water filter which states that it removes fluoride! So, as my city stupidly voted to fluoridate the water, before I arrived, I go to markets in nearby suburbs which do NOT fluoridate their water and get state-of-the-art commercially-filtered water OR I buy spring water — and decant it into a porcelain crock, immediately.

You need to do all these steps to get baseline information on your health AND to stop the slide on a slippery-slope from these various beverages. More next week.

“Everyone Knows Someone Who Needs This Information!” (TM)

I have been overwhelmed during my California trip and like others with diabetes, overwhelm has to be managed smartly. So, I’m late in posting, but am catching up using some important information on medications, conditions and suggestions for the problems described. These will be shorter articles.

1) Read the article at the New York times: New Group of Diabetes Drugs whereby the drug companies are seeking approval from the Federal Drug Administration (F.D.A.) for whole new types of diabetes drugs which sound like they have serious side-effects.

2) If you find your mind wandering (whether from low blood sugar, boredom or tiredness), then get out of that state quickly by watching photos of Nature for 7-10 minutes. There are lots of sites online which offer nature photos. This will not just help you focus (so you can take care of your low blood sugar, if that’s the cause), but also potentially lower your blood pressure and reduce stress hormones (which in turn, favorably affects insulin). Doing this will enhance attention and memory by about 20% say researchers at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

Another choice to optimize focus and brain function: scientists published in Human & Experimental Toxicology that using the herb marjoram in a salad, dressing etc. is beneficial. Components in this mint-family herb prevent the break-down of the memory neurotransmitter acetylcholine.  This process may also offer protection against Alzheimer’s (senile dementia).  Add the herb to the cooler recipe below.

The herb sage also has some of the same qualities and is used by Native Americans to help brain function.

3) And, if you are feeling stressed-out, be sure to sprinkle some nutmeg onto your food. Researchers at Texas A&M University say that myristin induces you to relax by increasing your levels of the hormone serotonin. Just use a quick sprinkle. It would be even more beneficial in the evening with a glass of milk just before bed. More on helping diabetics sleep — next time.

WATERMELON SURPRISE

Use your blender and produce this energy-drink!

2C organic watermelon, diced (if you include the seeds, then strain)
1/2C organic mango, diced
1C coconut “water” / “juice” – chilled *
a few leaves of fresh marjoram – to taste
1/2C spring water ice cubes
Garnish: fresh mint, fresh pineapple *

Blend 30 secs on the appropriate speed for your mixer.
Garnish. Use 20 minutes before any other food. Melons are very alkaline and should never be eaten with other types of food.

Many of us need Vitamin B6 to cope with stress and keep healthy nerves. Watermelon is a good source, along with many phytonutrients and lycopene.

The coconut is a source of catalase which helps your liver flush out undigested protein molecules. If you want more fiber, actually add some organic shredded coconut to desired thickness.  Coconut is beneficial for diabetics and everyone else! (See my archived articles about coconut on the upper navigation bar Archive tab.)

The fresh pineapple helps to pre-digest this food and speeds it through with less work for your over-taxed liver.

Enjoy!

“Everyone Knows Someone Who Needs That Information” (TM)

Trying new foods which are healthy is imperative for diabetics, as many people are stuck in a rut, continuing to eat foods and sustain habits which are not helping, and which may harm. The new foods are generally vegetarian, and in this case, they are essential. If you haven’t been eating them, you are putting yourself in jeopardy.  Some options are more expensive than others, but in the BIG food-picture, saving money on one part of your food budget (the most expensive is processed foods and more protein than you need), then enables you to buy healthier fresh or lightly-processed real foods.

We do not have to buy processed foods for the smart 2-snacks-a-day in a diabetic diet. In fact, snacks are a chance to try out other new items and recipes. When this season’s Biggest Loser Finale show this week revealed 59 year old Deni and 35 year old Olivia winning, as the at-home and grand-prize winners, respectively, there were lessons to learn there. We’ll discuss that over coming weeks, but small, healthy meals and snacks, paced through the day, is integral for beating both obesity and diabetes.

Famed holistic physician, Dr. Andrew Weil, MD says “As a physician, I recommend nutritious hemp seeds and oil to anyone interested in maintaining a healthy diet. Everyone will benefit when American farmers can grow this amazing crop once again.

What’s going on here?

Well, Hemp History Week occurred May 2-8, 2011 and you can learn more at: Grow American Hemp! – it’s Nature’s Wonder Food and the safest ecologically for food, clothes (excellent and no pesticides — cotton accounts for 25% of all pesticide use!), building materials, cosmetics, industrial products (Chrysler, Mercedes Benz, Lotus, GM and BMW already use it in cars)  and on and on.

Currently, one needs a permit to grow even industrial hemp (which cannot produce marijuana) and the American government has not been granting permits and has been waging war on those who want to grow this amazing, healthy, useful plant.

It’s even burned fields on the permit-holding, sovereign lands of several Native American tribes, for their own home-building use (they did the American government the  “courtesy” to get a permit, although they should not need it). The ATF agents burned 2 seasons of crops and left individuals and tribes without their crop after investing all their money.

No-one is getting permits in America, and meanwhile, we are importing hemp food and hemp products from Canada and other European and Asian countries which are more enlightened. So, we pay more and our farmers are locked out from one of the few lucrative crops which could help them save their family farms and provide a decent living-wage.

Hemp is one of the most nutritious foods on earth and if I had to choose 3 foods to have plenty of on a desert island, it would be one. Hemp seeds are a nearly-perfect food source. And, they are one of the few foods which have the needed human ratio of 1:3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) of Omega-3s to Omega-6s.

We must get these essential fatty acids everyday: either from cold water fish, molecularly-distilled fish oil capsules, organic hemp seed, organic chia seed or organic flax seed. Omega-3s are severely lacking in the modern diet, and this is possibly why neurological problems are increasing, as the brain is 70% these essential fats. Episodes of Parkinson’s, ADD, Autism, Alzheimers and more, along with IQ’s falling can all be attributed to lack of these EFAs. And, their lack also lets body-wide inflammation wreke havoc; this impacts diabetics directly.

So, like last week, when I wrote about chia seed recipes, I’ll add some interesting hemp seed ones this week.

I prefer NOT to cook hemp seeds, flax seeds or chia seeds. If you do, please do not use any heat higher than 325F. That’s critical. Flaxseeds must be ground to be accessible and then used immediately.

You will not be failing drug tests if you eat hemp! Only those who use drugs will register on those tests.

“Everyone Knows Someone Who Needs This Information!” (TM)

The British Royal Family tends to use alternative medicine practitioners and seems in quite good shape, especially Queen Elizabeth at 85 and the Duke of Edinburgh at 90. What can we learn here and what can we learn from their food choice perspective for celebrations?

Eighteen years ago, the Queen’s naturopathic physician, at that time, made a visit to my American city and was doing health consultations. All of my own family went. Jan de Vries had been trained in Switzerland by famed physician Dr. Alfred Vogel and came back to practice in Britain, with a couple of clinics in London and in Scotland. His view of keeping one’s Health was simple: keep Balance, and if lost, then regain it with life-giving, natural methods.

I think this is why you see such a calm demeanor in Queen Elizabeth, even though her work-load is grueling, especially for a senior citizen. She is surrounded by all that wealth and power and yet she lives a simple-life amidst it, for Balance. And, by all accounts, she’s very healthy in mind and body, just what we’d hope to be at her age.

So, as she walked down the 400 feet from her car at the entry, to the high altar in Westminster Abbey, to attend the wedding of her grandson Prince William Philip Arthur Louis Windsor and Catherine Elizabeth Middleton, we saw an elder to emulate, who took it all in her stride. She also wisely knew not to upset her routine and “party” into the night with the youngsters. Instead, she celebrated with family and dignataries at lunch, with family and friends at dinner, and then retired to Windsor Castle for a normal bedtime, leaving Buckingham Palace to party to 6am!

And, for the food she chose at Luncheon, which was the only menu I saw published, (dinner was in Prince Charles’ purview) (much of the food was sourced from his organic farm for both meals), what can we see as to how to enjoy food at a celebration and yet be prudent?

Here’s the menu, and in all cases, we don’t have the details of the recipe, so these are general  comments.

Cornish Crab Pate on Lemon Blini
Pressed Duck Terrine with Fruit Chutney
Roulade of Goat’s Cheese with Carmelized Walnuts
Variety of Palmiers and Cheese Straws (grain carbs / fancy crackers)
Scottish Smoked Salmon on Beetroot Blini (Blintzes)
Miniature Watercress and Asparagus Tarts
Poached Asparagus Spears and Hollandaise Sauce
Quails Eggs with Celery Salt
Scottish Langoustines (a type of small lobster) with lemon mayo, pressed pork and cracklings
Wild Mushroom and Celeriac Chausson
Bubble and Sqyeak with Organic Lamb Confit
Grainy Mustard with Chipolata Sausages
Smoked Scotch Haddock Fishcake with Pea Guacamole
Miniature Yorkshire Pudding with Roast Filet of Organic Beef and Horseradish Mousse

Desserts:
Gateau Opera
Blood Orange Pate of Fruits
Raspberry Financier
Rhubarb Creme Brulee Tarlets
Passionfruit Praline
White Ganache Chocolate Truffle
Milk Chocolate Praline with Nuts

WEDDING CAKES:
Traditional English Fruitcake
McVitties Chocolate Biscuit Cake from a Palace Recipe.

___   The first thing I noticed was that the food was “local” and in season.

___   Next, the food was organic or sourced from clean waters, etc. and it was weighted towards fish and shellfish, rather than red meats.

___   The portions were small and able to be tailored to an individual’s appetite according to what and how many items a person ate.

___   There were numerous options for Orthodox Jews and Muslims (fish, vegetables, vegetarian foods, fruits) as well as lacto-ovo vegetarians.

___   There was an array of mostly low-fat protein sources or healthy fats.

___   There were nationally-traditional recipes and traditional family recipes used as well as some adventurous ones for “foodies”.

___   There was an abundance of vegetables.

___   Fruit was relied on for most of the desserts.

___   The starchy desserts or accompaniments were not to excess.

I am sure that if you really gorged yourself on these amouse-bouche canapes, you could get a serious calorie count, but if you ate sensibly, this could be quite a delicious and healthy meal.

Now, here’s a Palace recipe which was speculated in The Mirror newspaper, by former Palace chefs, to be served, but it was not chosen. However, as other Palace recipes were not shared, and this one sounds delicious and healthy, this one is a “keeper” for all occasions.

GLEANEAGLE’S PÂTÉ
(Serves 12 plus)

2 lbs smoked salmon, thinly sliced and divided
1 lb smoked trout
1.5 lbs unsalted, organic butter, softened, divided into 6 portions *

1 T finely chopped fresh dill
1 t lemon juice
1 lbs smoked mackerel

1 T finely chopped fresh chives

Line a 1lb loaf tin or pate terrine with plastic wrap, overlapping the sides. Take half of the smoked salmon and line the sides and bottom of the loaf tin. Overlap the top edge by two inches, so the salmon will fold over and finally cover the filling at the top-level of the terrine dish.

Remove and discard the skin from the smoked trout.  Place the trout in a food processor and chop finely; add 1/3  of the butter to the processor.

Blend again until smooth and add chopped dill and lemon juice.

Carefully put dollops of the trout mix into the terrine and gently link-up and even the level.  Place the loaf tin in the freezer for 10 minutes while you prepare the second layer.

Clean the food processor bowl. Remove and discard skin from the mackerel, and place the mackerel into the food processor; chop finely.

Add 2 portions of butter and blend until smooth. Take the loaf tin from the freezer, and spread the mackerel mixture smoothly on top of the trout layer.

Place the loaf tin back in the freezer for 10 minutes while you prepare the third layer.

Clean the food processor bowl yet again. Place remaining smoked salmon in the food processor and chop finely. Add remaining two portions of butter and chives to the processor and blend again until smooth.

Remove loaf tin from the freezer, and spread the smoked salmon on top of the mackerel. Smooth the top.

Fold the overlapping pieces of smoked salmon over the top layer of the salmon spread.

Cover the top with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight, or for at least four hours, until firm. Remove from refrigerator and lift off top plastic wrap.

Invert the terrine on to a cutting board and remove the loaf tin and additional plastic wrap. Slice the terrine into one inch slices. Serve on salad leaves as a sit-down appetizer or slice the terrine into suitably-sized strips and serve on suitably-sized and shaped crackers, as a canape hors d’oeuvre.

* Do NOT substitute margarine or non-organic butter. Either of those other items are NOT healthy and margarine may also not do the job of solidifying the pate at all.

Enjoy!

“Everyone Knows Someone Who Needs This Information!” (TM)

There’s been lots going on this week, and I want to share a new diagnostic modality I’ve been investigating which has had a constantly-improving track-record for the past 30 years. You’ll be surprised!

There’s a healing discipline called Bio-Acoustics and it was begun from a natural-gift bestowed upon Sharry Edwards.  At school, once she mentioned her extra powers of observation (and proved them), her professors advised her to keep her special-talent hidden. But, when Sharry realized how much Good she could DO, she took the Path of Courage and stepped into the frey.

Sharry can hear way beyond the normal range of human hearing. What has that to do with helping diabetics? Wait and see; it’s a fabulously interesting Journey.

When Sharry walks around, she is able to hear the quite real “Individual Sound” we each emit. (I would think this would be difficult to bear, but she does not mention it bothers her. Like others with paranormal senses, she is used to her Gift, I guess.)

The Individual Signature is emitted FROM your ear! All of us could be unconsciously picking up these waves, but for Sharry, this is conscious input. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the ear is on the Kidney Meridian which certainly is where Stress lands. So, it all makes sense.

About 30 years ago, she began to realize that there were differences among people, but there were also similarities., especially among people with similar health challenges.

She was hearing it even more when they spoke, for the Human Voice is like a “reporter” of every energy-transaction happening in your body.

I know that I have always noticed that when I am unsettled and certainly when I am too stressed or ill, that I can no longer sing well. In fact, I have used that for the past 40 years as a personal guide to when I am over-doing it!

For Sharry, it’s much more important when she hears what’s “missing” or “in excess” as a person speaks. The frequencies in your Voice are reflective of processes deep within you, and, in fact, over the years, Sharry and her fellow researchers have found that your brain uses this bio-feedback to make vital decisions!

Very few people have a perfect set of frequencies in their Voice Profile, when tested by the increasingly sophisticated computer programs which Sharry and her trained practitioners use. Those who do are those few people you see once-in-a-while and then you KNOW what Health really looks like. (Except for young children, I think I have seen only 3 people in adulthood — who don’t work on their Health with a daily energetic-healing practice — and I’m nearly 65 years old.)

We feel those people’s “magnetism” as like no other.

Sharry worked patiently sorting out the frequency-energy signatures — for each organ, each organ system, each metabolic and chemical bio-process. She mapped the human body in a totally new way, using an Individual Voice Signature to show what was in-Balance and what was not. Then, she learned what to do to attain and regain and maintain Balance.

Wow!

Many of her patients (and she always works with physicians) were leaving to have their diagnosis verified by lab tests. Sometimes the path out of illness was quick (even minutes for some, no matter how long the condition had existed) and for others it took several visits and several adjustments of the healing frequencies.

The brain is quick to entrain itself to pick-up “missing” frequencies. It may take a little different path for “excessive’ ones, but sooner rather than later, your brain is reBalanced for that issue.

So, here’s the gist of the treatment and how to contact her and the practitioners she’s trained.

She is still the only one who can hear the Individual Signature and match the tones needed to re-Balance. So, as others don’t have the Gift, she had computer engineers developed programs for analysis of our spoken words, at her instruction.

The practitioner then must be fastidious in choosing what’s needed to Balance. Some frequencies are “thin”, others are “missing”, yet others are in “excess”, others show patterns of disorganization, microbial invasion, poor assimilation of nutrients or poisoning (even by foods and supplements) and also such things as lack of discernment.

The practitioner does the Math (only high school level needed) and calculates the frequencies or combination of frequencies needed to start the Healing right there.

Then, a portable device is programmed so you can listen on a prescription time-frame or as needed.

A return visit, a new Voice sample, a new status and you may or may not need a new Sound Prescription.

What is basically happening is Everything in the Universe has a Frequency, especially living things, which have quite individual signatures within their Kind.

The given prescription sounds start to entrain your brain and re-organize it to Balance. The bio-feedback then helps your brain send healthy messages out to your body. Systems and biochemistry and individual organs, bones and even individual muscles all respond.

And, taking new Voice Prints show if more needs to be done, or not. Sometimes there are layers to dis-ease, which just peel back like an onion. Other times, it’s fairly straight forward.

Balancing the Voice Print even heals the most traumatic and life-threatening situations. One of the situations happened to Sharry’s child who was in a diving accident in a remote place, waiting 45 minutes for emergency help to arrive. She could have easily bled to death in minutes, but Sharry was able to perfectly-intone the frequencies which kept her child alive because there was NO bleeding from a MASSIVE wound. Yep!

Now, they have researched causes for the imbalances for many conditions, including Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Diabetes, Gout, Parkinson’s, AUTISM, allergies and many more.

If you want to get in touch, then go to Sound Health Inc. You’ll see a list of practitioners there, too, and when classes are being given if you would like to learn the real-healing edge of modern medicine. We certainly need more people to be willing to learn this.

“Everyone Knows Someone Who Needs This Information!” (TM)

This post contains helpful health information and the request for some advocacy to support a particular health-oriented Bill in the US House of Representatives! Read on.

First, the legislation, as you need to contact your Congressional delegate. Read about the situation and go to the letter-to-respond site, below.

From our friends at The Life-Extension Foundation: Thanks for alerting me!

April 5, 2011, a bipartisan bill was introduced in the US House of Representatives. It’s  called the Free Speech about Science Act (H.R. 1364). This landmark legislation protects the public’s right-to-know by protecting basic free speech rights as they pertain to the current censorship of science.

The Bill enables the natural health community to share peer-reviewed scientific findings with the public – which will help introduce the public to efficacious therapies and natural products for alternative (and mainstream) physicians to use or for self-administration from a position of educated choice.

The Free Speech about Science Bill has the potential to transform medical practice by educating the public about the real science behind natural health, instead of it being demonized by an actually organized, self-serving campaign, especially from an online group (Quackwatch) that serves no-one’s best interest. It’s been exposed that some of those people have links to Big Pharma, in varying degrees.

The Bill will have opposition:

___   from the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) (which has many members increasingly “muffled” or others with deep ties to Big Pharma) – who will oppose it since the Bill restricts their ability to censor the dissemination of published scientific data.

___   from drug companies fearing competition from natural health approaches based on diet, dietary supplements and lifestyle. These pharmaceutical companies show they are motivated by self-interest and with their “deep-pockets”, they have held Congress captive. Just the fact there is a courageous Bill is real progress. Now you have to boost individual law-makers to have the courage to pass it!

___   and possibly from mainstream medical associations, who pipe-their-own-tune as they desire, but constantly want to “muffle” others, including their own members!

The public,  wants and needs access to credible information they can use to make wise dietary and Health choices. Please don’t let any special interest groups stop this bill.

Here’s where to write your Congressional delegate. Do it for yourself, and more importantly, do it for your children and future generations. The world needs people to be proactive about their Health as dis-ease and poor health is spreading because of ignorance. Society needs this information to turn-things-around before poor Health robs us individually and as a nation.

Next, Magnesium is critically depleted in most Westerners, especially Americans, and even more so within diabetics, anywhere!

Please read my previous article about MAGNESIUM
– click on link.

Among other critical functions, magnesium is needed for over 300 enzymes, your nerves and your bio-electric cellular ion-transport system. Many of your immune system cells require magnesium to fight for you effectively. Read the article above!

Very few scientific studies utilize women as subjects, but women are at risk for cardiac death because many doctors aren’t monitoring them well-enough, preferring to think it’s mostly a male problem.

Well, I had a savvy, otherwise-healthy friend keel-over and die, when she could afford the best care. So, here again, take this study into your doctor and let him watch over you without thinking you’re being a hypochondriac.

The Life Extension Foundation Magazine reports:

“Greater dietary intake of magnesium and higher plasma magnesium levels are associated with a reduced risk of sudden cardiac death in women, according to a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.  It’s long [been] known for its anti-arrhythmic properties in cellular and experimental models … .

Scientists examined dietary intake data collected from more than 88,000 women enrolled in the Nurses’ Health Study. During 26 years of follow-up, 505 cases of sudden cardiac death occurred. In a case-control analysis, the scientists compared plasma magnesium levels between 99 sudden cardiac death cases and 291 control patients. Higher dietary intake of magnesium and higher plasma magnesium levels were associated with lower risks of sudden cardiac death.

These findings suggest that increasing magnesium intake and plasma levels may protect women against sudden cardiac death by preventing abnormal heart rhythms.”  Dr. E. Wagner, MD reported.
