Magnesium and Cardiovascular Disease – Urgent Call to Action – Carolyn Dean MD ND

Hour One 1-14-2019
Hour Two 1-14-2019

Let’s get right down to it:

  • Cardiovascular disease, listed as the underlying cause of death, accounts for nearly 836,546 deaths in the US. That’s about 1 of every 3 deaths in the US. 
  • About 2,300 Americans die of cardiovascular disease each day, an average of 1 death every 38 seconds. 
  • Cardiovascular diseases claim more lives each year than all forms of cancer and Chronic Lower Respiratory Disease combined. 
  • About 92.1 million American adults are living with some form of cardiovascular disease or the after-effects of stroke. Direct and indirect costs of total cardiovascular diseases and stroke are estimated to total more than $329.7 billion; that includes both health expenditures and lost productivity.
  • Nearly half of all NH black adults have some form of cardiovascular disease, 47.7 percent of females and 46.0 percent of males. 
  • Coronary Heart Disease is the leading cause (43.8 percent) of deaths attributable to cardiovascular disease in the US, followed by Stroke (16.8 percent), Heart Failure (9.0 percent), High Blood Pressure (9.4 percent), diseases of the arteries (3.1 percent), and other cardiovascular diseases (17.9 percent). [1]

By the time you finish reading this email, another four Americans will have had a heart attack and another four will have had a stroke or heart failure. 

What can be done to prevent this human avalanche of death from cascading into your life or the life of your loved ones?


1. Magnesium prevents muscle spasms of the blood vessels in the heart, which can lead to heart attack.

2. Magnesium prevents muscle spasms of the peripheral blood vessels, which can lead to high blood pressure.

3. Magnesium prevents calcium buildup in cholesterol plaque in arteries, which leads to clogged arteries, atherosclerosis, and stroke.

Since 2001 Dr. Carolyn Dean has been making the public aware that magnesium deficiency is a contributing factor to cardiovascular disease and magnesium sufficiency – or magnesium saturation – contributes greatly to heart health and proper cardiovascular function.

Recently, Dr. Dean has been joined by cardiovascular doctors and researchers around the world, citing the importance of magnesium supplementation as a strategy for improving the structure and function of the entire cardiovascular system. The summary of one finding states:

“Subclinical magnesium deficiency increases the risk of numerous types of cardiovascular disease, costs nations around the world an incalculable amount of healthcare costs and suffering, and should be considered a public health crisis. That an easy, cost-effective strategy exists to prevent and treat subclinical magnesium deficiency should provide an urgent call to action.”

Tonight on our internet based radio show we’ll be talking to Carolyn Dean MD ND about Magnesium and Cardiovascular Disease – An Urgent Call to Action in addition to 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!!

SO…be sure join us this evening for another wonderful, information-packed broadcast. If you yourself are unable to make the show, you have the option to email me [Ginney] and have your question or comment included in our MailBag Segment that is featured in Hour Two. Remember, the valuable information, suggestions, and insights about your health choices can always be discussed with your doctor, should you choose to do so.

  1. I am a 82 year old male, and currently take 400mg mg MgO. Have never had any heart problems and my cholesterol is excellant using 20mg of Pravastatin at bedtime. Is there any need for more magnesium?

  2. What can I say Dr. C, you are a gift from heaven, God’s earthly Angel. I am so blessed to have found you over two years ago. May God bless you every day of your life. Thank you dear heart for all our do, say, and are.

  3. Somewhere along in my life, I was told to take potassium when I take magnesium, if so how much mcg/mg should I take. I do take L-Threonate every morning one hour before breakfast and also Magnesium Taurate with Co-Q10 in the evening with my dinner, I do eat leafy greens and a full spectrum of supplements including VD3,K2. My problem is if I take more Mgnesium I get leg cramps that gets me up and walking to release the cramp. So I had to limit myself to just one of each as explained above. I would appreciate your input on the subject. Thank you
    I do have to mention that I have been diagnosed with COPD in 2005 and have been on Inhalers since then. Of course have to constantly fight the side effects which helps me keep alive. I am 76 going on 77 in 2 months.
