Thomas Edison said, “The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest her or his patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.” In this free audio episode, released August 5, 2009, I interview today's "Doctor of the Future" and author of The Magnesium Miracle - Dr. Carolyn Dean (I also answer follow-up questions from Podcast Episode #53 about who to contact if you want to get tested for the six performance factors)
Dr. Dean is not only a medical doctor, but also a naturopath, herbalist and acupuncturist. She’s authored 16 books including The Yeast Connection and Women’s Health, IBS for Dummies and The Magnesium Miracle. Radio, TV and magazines interview her regularly — including ABC, NBC and CBS. She's the Medical Director for the Nutritional Magnesium Association.
During our interview, Dr. Dean and I discuss her book and touch on some very interesting topics, including:
-Why people who eat healthy, exercise frequently, and take care of their bodies still need to worry about magnesium deficiency.
-Why a magnesium deficiency could give an athlete a heart attack (go to http://www.nutritionalmagnesium.org to watch the 2 minute video that shows why the calcium/magnesium balance is so important)
-Ben Greenfield and Carolyn Dean's thoughts on exactly what an athlete could do during competition to maintain magnesium levels. Dr. Dean mentions"H2O Minerals angstrom supplement"andNatural Calm's "magnesium citrate powder" and Ben mentions "Ancient Minerals topical magnesium oil".
-Exactly what needs to be on your grocery shopping list of foods that offer a high source of magnesium.
-The 26 different health hazards you risk because of a magnesium deficiency.
-And much, much more...
