Magnesium Deficiency, Calcification and Kidney Disease – Carolyn Dean MD ND

If you don’t have enough magnesium in your body to help keep calcium dissolved, you can develop many symptoms, including muscle spasms, fibromyalgia, neuralgia, calcified arteries, dental cavities, and calcium deposits (including breast tissue calcification). Some researchers equate aging with calcification. A recent study found that elderly women who take calcium supplements and had a history of stroke or white matter lesions (WMLs) may face an increased risk for dementia. And remember, elderly means anyone over 65!

Another scenario plays out in the kidneys and bladder. If there is too much calcium in the kidneys and not enough magnesium to dissolve it, you can develop kidney stones. Calcium deposited throughout the bladder can make it rigid, lower its capacity, and lead to frequent urination and leaking. A 2015 study confirms magnesium’s role in dissolving calcium crystals in artery calcification. This study focused on aortic valve calcification at a time when there has been a huge increase in heart valve problems.

Kidney artery calcification is common in chronic kidney disease but it’s been neglected because it can’t be treated with stents or artery bypass as is done in coronary artery and carotid artery calcification. Drug therapy is all that’s left, but drugs are not used to treat kidney disease, drugs are given to prevent the diseases that are commonly associated with kidney disease: antihypertensives, blood thinners, and statins. Ignored is the fact that magnesium can dissolve calcification and potentially cure the problem, whereas statins and blood pressure drugs just make the calcification worse because they drain magnesium from the body.

To add insult to injury, anyone with any level of kidney disease is told to avoid magnesium! That’s because patients with NO kidney function, who are on dialysis, can build up high levels of magnesium if they are given IV magnesium. Those cases led to detrimental advice that you should avoid magnesium if you have ANY level of kidney disease.

Here is what one customer said after 4 weeks on the products:

KIDNEY’S NO LONGER FAILING – I thought I would give you an up-date on my health and my Renal failure, which was cured in about 4 weeks, and I believe my numbers will continue to improve.

 I’m 69 years old, I weigh 185 lbs. I am not diabetic have never smoked exercised regularly have no history family history of any kidney problems. I have taken proton pump inhibitors for a very long time and blood pressure meds since I was 25 years old. I suspect that proton pump inhibitors had something to do with it, but my doctor says all medications have side effects and he would keep a very close eye on my blood test to see if there’s anything they could do. 

 My blood levels started to go down last year and it really took a dive this summer which really surprised me.I looked long and hard on the internet for ND doctors that had an answer, and yours was the only one that made sense to me. Fixing things at the cellular level was My convincing key. I remember my biology way back when, and magnesium was the key to life. I can’t wait for my next blood test in another 4 weeks. If it keeps going up that fast it should be back to normal. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for this product.

Instead of expensive and disruptive IV chelation therapies, you can be in charge of dissolving your own calcification. A customer wrote the following, “My wife had open heart surgery 2½ years ago, due mostly to hypertension and obstruction of the coronary arteries. After being on ReMag and ReMyte for several months, her blood pressure dropped from 180/95 to 110/60. Also, her ejection fraction improved to 60%, and the last ultrasound of her carotid artery showed a 30% to 40% lessening of calcified occlusions.”

  1. Hi,

    I would really like to know what Dr. Dean said about how many mgs of calcium daily that we need if we have dairy in our diets. As I listened to the Radio Archives, words were scrambled so I could not hear it for about a couple of minutes. I played it back but no avail. So I missed all that was said about the daily calcium mgs.

    I don’t have a lot of dairy every day so I really don’t know what to take. I am interested in the new Calcium supplement though, as I already take ReMag.

    I hope you can help.

    Thank you,

    • Hello, Crystal – Ginney emailing you today – sorry for the bad audio – Dr. Dean thinks people do best on a 1:1 balance of calcium to magnesium. She supports the
      calcium RDA from the UK (700mg) and the WHO (500-600mg). I personally try to get 600mg of calcium in my diet, which includes occasional yogurt, green leafy
      vegetables, nuts, seeds, and a small amount of bioavailable calcium in ReMyte. ReMyte contains 31 mg of calcium in the picometer form. That means it can readily
      enter into cells as needed. It’s not in the formula as a therapeutic amount of calcium, but it is enough to balance the other minerals in ReMyte.

      If you feel you might not get enough calcium in your diet, or you are dairy-free – then you will want to use ReCalcia. It’s 300 mgs per teaspoon are 100% bio-available and we are starting to consider, based on testimonials, that our calcium will actually push calcification out of the body by replacing it with a readily available form – along with proper magnesium supplementation.

      • Hello, Joy!

        Dr. Dean has written a whole section on Kidneys in The Magnesium Miracle – you can email our support team and they will send you the whole chapter will be FREE!

  2. Wow! This is very interesting . . . I’m looking to shrink, dissolve, rid my thyroid area of clusters of calcification nodules that surfaced some 10 years ago. Per yearly thyroid sonograms, the nodules do not increase in size or quantity, and possibly have gotten minutely smaller. There are numerous small nodules, not painful, but are located towards the front of my neck, so I can notice a raised area about the size of a small jaw breaker. , and I would like to get this GONE! Love Love Love all of your info and 24/7 live broadcasts! Have just now started the ReMag and am thinking about ReMyte next. Have also been dealing with a plantar fasciitis type foot pain for about 5 years now, but I feel patches of grittiness when massaging the bottoms of my feet and wonder that this issue could also be calcification based. Increasing my magnesium with ReMag over the last five days has already made a difference in my foot pain! So, YAAAY!!!


    Thanks so Much,

    • Hi, Cyndy!

      Great news about the foot pain. YIPPEE!!! We’re hearing lots of calcification shrinking going on – and I think – but I am not a doctor – that calcifications are pretty much the same and they will go away eventually! SOOOOO exciting!Keep us posted.
