DR. MARK SIRCUS
Almost ten years ago, Dr. Mark Hymen wrote, “I find it very funny that more doctors aren’t clued to Magnesium’s benefits because we use it in conventional medicine. But we never stop to think about why or how important it is to our general health or why it helps our bodies function better.” Magnesium is to humans as oil is to a properly functioning car.
Magnesium deficiency causes a lot of pain and suffering, so we do not want to be ignorant. Uncountable millions have died of cardiac arrest over the last few decades because cardiologists do not prescribe Magnesium. Surgery is also made safer with Magnesium. Life is safer and more prolonged if one has enough Magnesium in the cells and the blood.
Low serum and intracellular magnesium concentrations are associated with insulin resistance, impaired glucose tolerance, and decreased insulin secretion. Magnesium improves insulin sensitivity, thus lowering insulin resistance. Magnesium and insulin need each other.
Without Magnesium, our pancreas won’t secrete enough insulin–or the insulin it secretes won’t be efficient enough–to control our blood sugar. Insulin resistance and magnesium depletion result in a vicious cycle of worsening insulin resistance and a decrease in intracellular Mg(2+).
It does not take much to convince people that Magnesium is a significant and vital mineral. There is no equal for Magnesium, certainly no substitute. The more you consume between diet and heavy supplementation, the longer you will live. It is as simple as that. Imagine changing the oil in your car every one thousand miles. It is just going to last longer. But with our bodies, it is best if we top off our magnesium levels every day.
In writing Forbidden Cures (hopefully available in a month to six weeks), I occasionally split my mind into communicating with two different communities of people. On one side are all the people who will read my words who have never used chlorine dioxide, and on the other side are many thousands or millions who have already used it for their health.
“I did Adreas Klacker’s Parasite Protocol for three months, completed in April.
I did not see any dramatic results, aside from having more energy to stay up
longer at night. In contrast, my wife had the fountain of youth spring up
in her! She went front chronically fatigued to jogging in the mornings.”
It is easy to get passionate about chlorine dioxide. It is that good. However, we should resist going overboard (fanatical) and remain rational to see and understand the best way to go forward. Broad-based information about chlorine dioxide and all its help mates, like Magnesium and bicarbonates, needs to get out to the billions who need it.
Chlorine Dioxide Leaders Have It Wrong
When it comes to Magnesium, we cannot depend on Mark Grenon, Jim Humble, or Andreas Klacker. For instance, Grenon says, “Get your Magnesium and other nutrition from Real foods as God intended and stop wasting money on vitamins and supplements! High magnesium foods include dark leafy greens, seeds, beans, fish, whole grains, nuts, dark chocolate, yogurt, avocados, bananas, etc.”
According to Scientific American, fruits and vegetables grown decades ago were much richer in vitamins and minerals than the varieties most of us get today. The main culprit in this disturbing nutritional trend is soil depletion: Modern intensive agricultural methods have stripped increasing amounts of nutrients from the soil in which the food we eat grows. Sadly, each successive generation of fast-growing, pest-resistant carrot is truly less good for you than the one before.”
Andreas Klaker recommends seawater to use with CDS, but that is not good enough to satisfy the body’s need for Magnesium. One would have to drink a lot of seawater to get enough Magnesium. Kerri Rivera, who works with MMS and autistic children, warns that seawater is perhaps not a good idea because of pollution and radiation that can now be found in seawater, especially in the Pacific. She recommends fulvic minerals instead. They come from deep underground like magnesium oil, so they are exceptionally pure. Unfortunately, everything above ground is contaminated with chemicals and heavy metals, with mercury worthy of critical attention.
Jim Humble warns people from taking supplements in general. “It can actually be helpful to avoid taking nutritional supplements for a time. This is because pathogens also feed on good nutrition, so in a sense, if you are taking nutritional supplements while the pathogens are still alive, you are building up with one hand and tearing down with the other. In addition, some nutritional supplements neutralize MMS,” writes Jim Humble. Sorry Jim, but that is conceptual quicksand. There is never a reason not to give the body what it needs.
Looking at heavy metals, I see nothing in the literature that would make me report that chlorine dioxide effectively removes or even moves heavy metals around—no actual tests of before and after measurements. In this book, you will see paragraphs that point to what chlorine dioxide does not do, which is critical to know if one wants to use it correctly.
So chelation of heavy metals is only a hope in the chlorine dioxide community that is not based on evidence. However, it is easy to believe that chlorine dioxide would help the body deal with the heavy metals it is burdened with, even if it does not get rid of them.
If chlorine dioxide does not do everything, and we establish what it does not do, we can adjust our protocols to include substances that do what chlorine dioxide cannot do. For example, CDS or MMS cannot do what Magnesium does. Thus Magnesium should be included in all chlorine dioxide protocols.
The only question about Magnesium is the dosage necessary for it to do its job for each person. When I tell people a gram a day minimum, I am talking about magnesium medicine, not magnesium supplementation. Few still know or understand that Magnesium can and should be used as a prime medication. We will talk about dosage recommendations and supplementation later in the book, but when talking to people, I tell them to flood their bodies with Magnesium.
Magnesium serves hundreds of essential functions in the body, and one of them has to do with the efficiencyof red blood cells and their capacity to carry oxygen.
Knowing appropriate dosages is essential to practitioners and patients because dosages are mission-critical for achieving therapeutic effects. Low doses do not get clinical results! Through the years, the mistake I have seen people making repeatedly is under-dosing. Healing substances like Magnesium become front-line medicines when dosages are taken up to the level of what doctors might use during cardiac arrest in ICU and emergency departments. So if regular pharmaceuticals do not do the job and the patient is dying, a reasonable emergency room doctor would reach for Magnesium. They would inject or give it intravenously.
The Universal Antidote
These first three medicines in my Natural Allopathic protocol represent three superhero medical substances coming together as equals in the eyes of medicine. And then, for a good reason, we will add iodine and selenium to bring together six giant medicinal substances for health recovery. All are necessary for a healthy existence, and when given together, it is hard not to experience deep healing.
For people first coming to chlorine dioxide, the first place I would send you to is Curious Outliers The Universal Antidote Documentary, and then on to his series of videos for beginners. Then one should look at Jim Humble and Andreas Klacker’s work, knowing that they give wonderful information on dosages but can be misleading about other subjects, so take what they say about certain things with a grain of salt.
Does Chlorine Dioxide Deplete Magnesium?
Someone asked me if chlorine dioxide depletes magnesium levels. I responded: Yes, life depletes Magnesium, so anything that stimulates energy would deplete Magnesium, but poisons deplete Magnesium much more because Magnesium gets used up with detox. The clinical reality is that for at least 30 percent, magnesium levels are already critically low. One slight drop, and there is often hell to pay.
Vaccines are aggressive interventions and often shock the body.
Magnesium-deficient bodies do not respond well to stress, so Magnesium
deficiencies could be a matter of life and death for some people.
The kidney does have an extraordinary ability to reduce magnesium loss in urine and thus achieve magnesium balance on a wide variety of intakes. Still, that balance only is maintained in the blood to avoid instant cardiac arrest if magnesium levels crash in the blood. The body will always steal Magnesium from the bones and cells to keep blood levels, which is why doctors who use blood serum magnesium tests give misleading results.
Magnesium deficiency is often misdiagnosed because it does not show up in blood tests – only 1% of the body’s Magnesium is stored in the blood.
Most doctors and laboratories don’t even include magnesium status in routine blood tests. Thus, most doctors don’t know when their patients are deficient in Magnesium, even though studies show that most Americans are low. Dr. Norman Shealy states, “Every known illness is associated with a magnesium deficiency. Magnesium is the most critical mineral required for the electrical stability of every cell in the body. Therefore, a magnesium deficiency may be responsible for more diseases than any other nutrient.”
Because magnesium deficiency is largely overlooked, millions of Americans suffer needlessly. One has to recognize the signs of magnesium thirst or hunger on their own since most doctors are lost in this regard. After oxygen, water, and basic food, Magnesium may be the most essential element our bodies need, vitally important.Yet, millions suffer daily from magnesium deficiency without even knowing it.
Over a decade ago, the number 67 percent was thrown around to describe the size of the magnesium deficient population. And that depended much on the wrong type of blood test to measure it. I would say, ‘everyone needs more magnesium.’ It is a safe medical assumption. It would be hard to find many people who eat spinach all day, for that is what one would need to do to keep up with the necessary magnesium levels to endure chronic toxic exposures and the increased stress of modern living.
That might be a slight exaggeration, but I still would assume 95 percent would have some cellular (not blood serum) deficiencies. It is hard unless one supplement to keep up with daily needs for Magnesium. So even if we get only a little behind, the shortage builds through time, creating profound chronic deficits that throw us down hard onto the mats of misery.
Magnesium Torment (Deficiency)
Symptoms of Magnesium Deficiency
The first symptoms of deficiency can be subtle – as most Magnesium is stored in the tissues, leg cramps, foot pain, or muscle ‘twitches’ can be the first sign. Other early deficiency symptoms include loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, and weakness. As magnesium deficiency worsens, numbness, tingling, seizures, personality changes, abnormal heart rhythms, and coronary spasms occur.
Dr. Sidney Baker: “Magnesium deficiency can affect virtually every organ system of the body. Concerning skeletal muscle, one may experience twitches, cramps, muscle tension, and muscle soreness, including backaches, neck pain, tension headaches, and jaw joint (or TMJ) dysfunction. Also, one may experience chest tightness or a peculiar sensation that he can’t take a deep breath. Sometimes a person may sigh a lot.”
“Symptoms involving impaired contraction of smooth muscles include constipation; urinary spasms; menstrual cramps; difficulty swallowing or a lump in the throat-especially provoked by eating sugar; photophobia, especially difficulty adjusting to oncoming bright headlights in the absence of eye disease; and loud noise sensitivity from stapedius muscle tension in the ear.”
“Other symptoms and signs of magnesium deficiency, in terms of how it affects the central nervous system, include insomnia, anxiety, hyperactivity and restlessness with constant movement, panic attacks, agoraphobia, and premenstrual irritability. Magnesium deficiency symptoms involving the peripheral nervous system include numbness, tingling, and other abnormal sensations, such vibratory sensations.”
Magnesium is critical because of its vital role in hundreds of enzyme systems and functions related to reactions in cell metabolism. It is essential for synthesizing proteins and utilizing fats and carbohydrates. In addition, Magnesium is needed to produce specific detoxification enzymes and is also crucial for energy production related to cell detoxification. Therefore, a magnesium deficiency can and will affect virtually every system of the body.
Like water, we need Magnesium every day. There is an
eternal need for Magnesium as well as water and when
Magnesium is present in water life, and health is enhanced.
One of the principal reasons doctors write millions of prescriptions for tranquilizers each year is the nervousness, irritability, and jitters essentially brought on by inadequate diets lacking Magnesium.Persons only slightly deficient in Magnesium become irritable, highly strung, sensitive to noise, hyper-excitable, apprehensive, and belligerent. If the deficiency is more severe or prolonged, they may develop twitching, tremors, irregular pulse, insomnia, muscle weakness, jerkiness, and leg and foot cramps.
If Magnesium is severely deficient, the brain is particularly affected. Clouded thinking, confusion, disorientation, marked depression, and even the terrifying hallucinations of delirium tremens are primarily brought on by a lack of this nutrient and remedied when Magnesium is given.
Suggestive early warning signs of magnesium insufficiency:
Physical and mental fatigue
Persistent under-eye twitch
Tension in the upper back, shoulders, and neck
Premenstrual fluid retention and breast tenderness
Possible manifestations of magnesium deficiency include:
Seizures (and tantrums)
PMS and hormonal imbalances
Inability to sleep
Muscle tension, spasms, and cramps
Calcification of organs
Weakening of the bones
Abnormal heart rhythm
Severe magnesium deficiency can result in low calcium levels in the blood (hypocalcemia). Magnesium deficiency is also associated with low potassium levels in the blood (hypokalemia). In addition, magnesium levels drop at night, leading to poor REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep cycles and unrefreshed sleep. Headaches, blurred vision, mouth ulcers, fatigue, and anxiety are early signs of depletion.
We hear all the time about how heart disease is the number one health crisis in the country, about how high blood pressure is the “silent killer,” and about how ever-increasing numbers of our citizens are having their lives and the lives of their families destroyed by diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and a host of other chronic diseases
Signs of severe magnesium deficiency include:
Sores or bruises that heal slowly
Dry, itchy skin
Unexplained weight loss
Blurry vision that changes
Unusual tiredness or drowsiness
Tingling or numbness in the hands or feet
Frequent or recurring skin, gum, bladder, or vaginal yeast infections
But wait a minute, aren’t those the same symptoms for diabetes?
Many people have diabetes for about five years before they show intense symptoms. By that time, some people already have eye, kidney, gum, or nerve damage caused by the deteriorating condition of their cells due to insulin resistance and magnesium deficiency. Dump some mercury and arsenic on the mixture of etiologies, and pronto we have the disease condition we call diabetes.
Magnesium deficiency is synonymous with diabetes and is at the root of many, if not all, cardiovascular problems.
Magnesium Is The Ultimate Heart Medicine
Forty percent of all first heart attacks end in death! Magnesium’s most crucial action is its vasodilating effects, which improve the blood supply to ischemic areas and reduce infarct size. A ten-year study of 2,182 men in Wales found that those eating diets low in Magnesium had a 50% higher risk of sudden death from heart attacks than those eating one-third more Magnesium. Due to a lack of Magnesium, the heart muscle can develop a spasm or cramp and stop beating. Most people, including doctors, don’t know it, but without sufficient Magnesium, we will die. When someone dies of a heart attack, people never say, “He died from magnesium deficiency.”
Magnesium probably would go a long way with athletes and the
young suffering from heart inflammation from COVID injections.
