Scurvy- The Disease? Carolyn Dean MD ND

I went out of town this weekend and spent some time with some lovely women one of whom is an eighty-year-old matriarch of a large family boasting 13 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren. She is a fortunate woman who has done well for herself in life and in business and is enjoying her retirement to the fullest.  Her only issue in life is a diagnosis of the ‘disease’ of atrial fibrillation which looms over her and steals her joy.  Three years ago her a-fib was so bad she had a cardioversion which didn’t take followed several weeks later by another one that did take. After the ‘successful’ procedure she was prescribed the typical regime of statins and other heart rhythm drugs including flecainide, a fluoride drug that binds magnesium and exacerbates a magnesium deficiency condition.

Of course, I had to jump right in and tell her about ReMag and what she might be able to do to protect her health and recover some of her energy and was she ever interested!  BUT, in all of her enthusiasm for what might be possible – feeling better, settling the a-fib issue, and getting off the drugs – she was still stuck in the medical paradigm of disease, decay, and decline. Somewhere along the way she got convinced that a-fib is a disease – not just a magnesium deficiency – and just couldn’t quite grasp that she didn’t have to live the rest of her life with a disease. Instead, she could solve her magnesium deficiency.

As we were talking about all this a metaphor popped into my head and I said, “What if you had scurvy and you went to the doctor and they told you that you had a disease? And then they put you on a drug to remove some of the symptoms but it didn’t work – and how could it work?  Because scurvy is a vitamin C deficiency – not a disease!”

And, all of the sudden, just like that – the lights went ON and she got it!  She understood that she didn’t have a ‘disease’ she just had a mineral deficiency and the relief flooded her face. Soon after we returned to the place we were staying and I made her a glass of sea salted water with some ReMag in it and did the same the days following.  Now she is on the way home with my partially full bottle of ReMag and a pending order waiting to ship to her this week!

Somewhere along the line we’ve gotten our X’s and O’s mixed up and made diseases out of nutritional deficiencies. One of these days, mostly due to the work of Dr. Carolyn Dean and other dedicated advocates, we will know heart rhythm issues for the symptoms they are – indicators of magnesium and mineral deficiencies – however long-standing and complicated they may have become.

Dr. Carolyn Dean has been educating the public on the dangers of modern medicine for over 20 years and her weekly radio show has become the GO-TO health information show for HOW-TO manage health, vitality, and well-being using picometer minerals and essential nutrients to avoid those dangers – drugs and surgeries being primary among the things to avoid!

Tonight on our internet based radio show, we’ll  be talking with Dr. Carolyn Dean about how Magnesium Alleviates Heart Rhythm Symptoms along with a wide range of health topics and safe solutions. You will love hearing the beneficial interactions with our callers and hosts alike including the body/mind connection, identifying the ‘conflict’ in the ‘conflict basis’ of disease and much more!!

  1. I had a mild stroke last Aug.and a month later my heart rate went down to 20. i had to have a pacemaker. I can’t seem to gain any energy and have much anxiety. I take Jigsaw magnesium along w/ Vit D morning and night which seems to help me sleep. What can I do differently to regain my energy and get rid of this depression and anxiety.? Can you help me? I am 79 yrs. old. Thanks so much!

    • Hello, Gloria – sorry to hear of your many health challenges. We are very confident in our formulas to restore cellular function and proper energy metabolism – you may want to consider adding ReMag and ReMyte to your protocol – I know you are taking Jigsaw but it’s just not as powerful as ReMag. ALSO, watch how much Vitamin D you are taking – Dr. Dean’s full supplement recommendation and dosages can be found here:

      • I was told by my Dr to take 4000 units of Vitamin D daily. This was before I had the stroke. Is that sufficient or not? Also, I plan to order the two products that you recommend but are you sure that they won’t counteract w/ the meds I have to take (eliquis, cartia, sotalol, & pepsin to prevent stomach ulcers. Is it possible that I might could wean myself off some of the drugs. I have never taken drugs and It really upsets me that I have to do so now. I know they cause alot of side effects but I see no way out. I’m really anxious to try Dr Dean’s products. I have read the testimonies and am really impressed and excited!!!

  2. Hello, Gloria – Dr. Dean recommends 1,000-2,000 units of Vit D per day. You can take any of our products with your drugs or any diet regime and they are all perfectly wonderful and in some cases the drugs actually work better with the minerals! Hope this answers your questions.

    • Thanks for your reply. I greatly appreciate it and I will be ordering the ReMag & ReMyte. soon. Thanks again!
