Radio Show Interview by Bill Xam with Dr. Carolyn Dean, author of The Magnesium Miracle.
It’s a two hour show during which Dr. Dean realizes that her host’s so-called incurable condition is likely severe magnesium deficiency.
Testing for Magnesium Deficiency – If you are concerned about being magnesium deficient you can get a Magnesium RBC blood test at www.requestatest.com – the optimum value is 6.0-6.5mg/dL. Note: This is not an endorsement of requestatest and The Nutritional Magnesium Association does not receive any compensation from requestatest.com. Please do your own research on this subject.
Note: The Nutritional Magnesium Association recommends a 2:1 magnesium to calcium ratio for supplemental use of these minerals.
It’s based on several points of research.
1. The amount of magnesium in the diet has dropped from 500 mg a day 100 years ago to 150 mg presently.
2. People seem to require two to three times the RDA of 400 mg per day of magnesium.
Looking at calcium and magnesium content of common foods, there is more calcium in the diet. Also, magnesium is rapidly lost from cooking and processing food, unlike calcium.
