The Magnesium Solution for High Blood Pressure

How to Use Magnesium to Help
Prevent & Relieve Hypertension Naturally

Magnesium is a key element in maintaining healthy body functioning and one of the few natural substances that has been studied extensively in scientifically studies. From professional and personal experience, I have learned how important magnesium can be for preventing and treating vascular disorders, and I have published on magnesium in the Annals of Pharmacotherapy (Feb. 2002).

High blood pressure (hypertension) is one of the major vascular disorders that magnesium can help. But diagnosing magnesium deficiencies is difficult, and taking effective amounts of magnesium often causes diarrhea. Most mainstream doctors know little about magnesium and never think about replacing it even when giving patients antihypertensive drugs that wash magnesium from their bodies. Fortunately, there are ways to identify the 75% of people in Western societies who are magnesium deficient and to use therapeutic amounts of magnesium without problems.

To this end, I have now published a new, expanded, evidence-based, how-to book on magnesium for you and your doctor. Considering that 90% of us develop hypertension in our lifetime, and that medication treatment does not entirely reduce the extra risk that hypertension causes for heart attacks and strokes, magnesium is something that you should learn about now. High blood pressure is more dangerous than high cholesterol. Magnesium is something that most people's bodies need and can be essential in helping to prevent hypertension before it begins and to treat it naturally with less reliance on drugs. If magnesium were properly included in the mainstream medical approach to hypertension, it would save people hundreds and health-care systems millions of dollars a year.

The Magnesium Solution for High Blood Pressure explains:

  • Why 50 million Americans have hypertension. Why 90% of us will develop hypertension in our lifetime.
  • Why it is so important to treat hypertension.
  • Why it is even more important to prevent hypertension. The key role that magnesium can play.
  • Why most people are magnesium deficient. Why magnesium deficiencies aren't recognized or treated.
  • Why magnesium is a key factor in relaxing blood vessels and lowering blood pressure.
  • Women, the elderly, high blood pressure, and magnesium.
  • Diabetes, high blood pressure, and magnesium.
  • How to take magnesium with blood pressure medications.
  • Why people taking diuretics need magnesium.
  • Scientific studies. Interviews with recognized experts. Evidence your doctor will respect.
  • Why many magnesium supplements don't work or cause diarrhea. The best magnesium supplements. How much to take.

Did You Know?

Mainstream doctors receive almost all of their information about medications from the drug industry: 90,000 sales reps, pervasive advertising, drug company-conducted studies, package inserts and the PDR that are written by the drug industry, and drug industry-underwritten continuing medical education courses. No wonder mainstream doctors' methods are skewed toward prescription drugs.

Alternative medicine has its own problems with accurate information. On March 30, 2002, the British Medical Journal (BMJ) reported: "Many Websites Make False Health Claims: An international sweep of health related websites has uncovered more than a thousand sites that carry misleading information or make false claims." will provide you with accurate, up-to-date, scientifically-sound information that you and your doctors can rely on.
