Carolyn Dean, MD, ND, author of the Magnesium Miracle and Medical Director of the Nutritional Magnesium Association at www.nutritionalmagnesium.org More than seventy-five years ago, scientists declared magnesium to be an essential mineral. Each year since then, research has revealed more ways in which magnesium is indispensable to life. Yet it is continually being lost from the natural food supply due to modern farming methods, food processing, mineral depletion from soil and environmental toxins. There has been a gradual decline of dietary magnesium in the United States, from a high of 500 mg/day at the turn of the century to barely 175–225 mg/day today. The National Academy of Sciences has determined that most American men obtain about 80 percent of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) and women average only 70 percent. In addition, most magnesium researchers find that the RDA is inadequate to prevent magnesium deficiency, making the above statistics of even more concern. In spite of this concern, few medical doctors are sounding the alarm, so it is left up to you to inform yourself and protect your health and that of your family. Magnesium is the one safe, inexpensive and simple nutrient that can prevent, treat, and reverse some of the most prevalent and serious health disorders that affect Americans today. High blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and many other chronic conditions can be attributed to deficiencies in magnesium. Dr. Dean will answer how magnesium deficiencies develop, why they are so widespread, and how they disrupt metabolic functions that ultimately threaten the health of virtually every bodily system. She will help you understand the causes of these disorders as they relate to magnesium deficiencies and she will talk about how to prevent these disorders and/or reverse them and thereby transform your health.
