In this episode of the Vegetable Gardening show, Mike chats with best selling author and certified naturopathic doctor, Dr Carolyn Dean about the beneficial effects magnesium has on the human body.
Dr Dean will tell us why magnesium is so important for basic activity in our daily lives, how lack of magnesium can lead to other health issues and the early warning signs of magnesium deficiency.
From there Dr Dean will fill us in on why the fruits and veggies in the store may not contain the proper amounts of magnesium you need to function, how growing your own fruits and vegetables will help when the soil is amended properly, and some other magnesium tips so you can increase your own magnesium levels.
About this episode's guest on the Vegetable Gardening Show, Dr. Carolyn Dean, MD, ND
Dr. Dean is not only a medical doctor, but also a naturopath, herbalist, acupuncturist, nutritionist, lecturer, consultant, author, inventor, and entrepreneur. Dr. Dean has been in the forefront of health issues for over 30 years.
She graduated from Dalhousie Medical School in 1978, holds a medical license in California and is a graduate of The Ontario College of Naturopathic Medicine – now the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto. She served on the board of Governors of the CCNM for six years.
Presently, Dr. Dean is on the Board of Directors of the non-profit, Nutritional Magnesium Association.
After writing about magnesium deficiency for over 15 years, Dr. Dean had encouraged magnesium companies to make a fully absorbed magnesium product instead of the medical recommendation for magnesium oxide which is only 4% absorbed. Finally, she realized she had to accomplish this task herself and created ReMag® which is 100% absorbed at the cellular level in its stabilized ionic form. Thus, nothing is lost to the laxative effect. Then, she went on to create more RnA ReSet formulas of the highest quality, which are fully absorbed at the cellular level and give the body the building blocks it needs in order to maintain optimal health.
