Magnesium and My Story

July 21, 2017

By Joan McDaniel              July 21, 2017

I have written about the importance of magnesium in my article Magnesium are you deficient. 

Since that time I have learned the value of Dr. Dean’s ReMag™ over the other magnesium supplement products on the market.

This is my story about Dr. Carolyn Dean’s product ReMag™

ReMag™ was developed by Dr. Carolyn Dean.  I normally do not recommend anyone’s product but I have found her product is the only magnesium supplement that is fully absorbed and works.

My own experience

I recently had hernia surgery and as I was getting ready for it by doing the surgery pre qualification when a panic attack and indication of high blood pressure made me aware I was critically low on magnesium. I continued work, It wasn’t an emergency yet, I still had time to prepare but each day I used a little more precaution and a moved little slower.

I had been taking magnesium as a supplement for almost 3 years.  I started a round of research and found I have been taking the wrong kind of magnesium.  I had been taking the powdered form of magnesium not Dr. Deans.  I was familiar with her product but didn’t see why I couldn’t use any magnesium that was on the market.  I bought the powdered form and would mix it myself.

I have found out the hard way that my body wasn’t absorbing much of the powdered form of magnesium.

ReMag™ The Magnesium Miracle™ – 8oz

Also Available on Amazon type Dr. Carolyn Dean ReMag

According to Dr. Carolyn Dean “…low magnesium”… is the reason for many diseases.”  I was told by a friend of mine who is also an Intensive care nurse that most patients are in intensive care because they are very low in magnesium and are treated by giving them magnesium Intravenous for recovery.

The importance of magnesium is in all the medical texts but modern medicine only treats disease with chemicals and pharmaceutical drugs.  Doctors are never taught the importance of minerals in medical school.  When Doctors are concerned about your Magnesium Level, they order the wrong test.  (Covered later)

What happen to Magnesium?

Magnesium use to be in our food but due to the increase of chemicals in the environment, fertilizers, and toxins and in our food magnesium is almost none existent.  Also, we no longer have wood ash.  Wood stoves provided wood ash for our grandparents gardens and wood is a great source of magnesium.  Walnuts, and other tree nuts for an example, are a great source of magnesium.

It is difficult to find a magnesium in supplemental form  that your body can easily accept.  Most magnesium supplements are in powdered form. I found by my own experience which was later verified by Dr. Dean — Your body only accepts or absorbs 1/4 of the powder and treats the rest with the diuretic effect.  In other words you get more laxative than magnesium. Magnesium in pill form is completely worthless your body doesn’t accept much of it at all.

Now back to my story —-

My own experience and my Out of Control Blood Pressure

I was critically low on magnesium.

I only had about 2 weeks before the surgery which wasn’t enough time to use her product to slowly build up my magnesium to control my blood pressure but with the 2 weeks worth and use of my natural herbs i was able to control my blood pressure enough to pass a complete physical and do the surgery but It took me almost another 3 months to rebuild my magnesium level.

It took several panic attacks with an irregular racing heart and skyrocketing blood pressure for me to realize my condition.  It was touch and go.  I thought they would force me to use hyper tension meds.  I had a history of taking Hypertension meds and knew all about their side effects.


ReMag™ is truly The Magnesium Miracle™ as it is an essential cofactor required by 700-800 enzyme systems that promote thousands of biochemical reactors in the body. It regulates temperature, produces and transports energy, transmits nerve signals, and relaxes muscles. Magnesium is vital for glucose, fat, and protein metabolism, and affects every cell in the body in a positive life-supporting way. Magnesium also ensures that we have healthy bones by regulating calcium absorption and metabolizing the active form of Vitamin D from its storage form.

Created by Dr. Carolyn Dean (author of The Magnesium Miracle), ReMag™ minerals are meticulously created from a pure source of magnesium chloride and developed to deliver stabilized magnesium ions that are similar in size to plant magnesium. ReMag is a picometer-ionic form of magnesium, smaller in diameter than the body’s cell mineral ion channels. Its direct and complete absorption into cells means ReMag™ bypasses a leaky gut and does not even reach the large intestine to cause diarrhea. Therefore, ReMag does not have a laxative effect.

Dr. Dean’s Has a whole line of Books and Other Products

I have read many of her books. Her products may seem to be expensive but so is a partially insurance covered massive hospital stay.

Common Magnesium Deficiency Symptoms:


Weak or brittle bones

High Blood Pressure

Low Energy



Abnormal Heart Rhythm


Muscle Tension, Spasms, Cramps especially leg cramps of spastic leg Nervousness

Panic attack

PMS and Hormonal Imbalances

Muscle Tension, Spasms, Cramps especially leg cramps of spastic leg


These are just a few of the most common magnesium deficiency symptoms. Additional  magnesium deficiency symptoms include: constipation, vertigo, stiff and achy muscles, insomnia, and muscle weakness. There are many more health problems that having low magnesium can cause.

The main benefit of magnesium is your biggest muscle YOUR HEART!

Adult Dosage

Maximum Therapeutic Dose is 2 – 4 Teaspoons.  This dose is reached slowly over several months.  Carolyn has found, It is best to put the full day’s dose into a liter of water and sip through the day along with Himalayan Pink Sea Salt.  Magnesium doesn’t taste well and you can mix it with juice or food.  I mix it with water and hold my nose while taking a few swallows every 1/2 hour or so.

Begin slowly taking 1/4 tsp daily and increasing by 1/4 tsp every 2 days to the desired dose.

Consult your Doctor

Determine therapeutic dose with your health care practitioner.  Try to get you Doctor to order a Magnesium RBC test which is the only reliable test available.  They normally order the serum magnesium test which is highly inaccurate.

You can determine you Magnesium Saturation Level without a Doctors order. Your can order a Magnesium RBC test online. Go to Request A Test, type in Magnesium RBC, pay $49.00 and they will send you to a nearby lab to have your blood drawn. The optimum level of your Magnesium RBC should be 6.0-6.5mg/dL in a range of 4.2-6.8mg/dL.You can do periodic blood testing for your magnesium levels with a Magnesium RBC test through your doctor or from Request A Test.

Many People are magnesium-deficient

Many people are very magnesium-deficient or are toxic from use of medications and an unhealthy diet.  Beginning very slowly to allow your body to adjust.  Your body is so used to toxins it will take it a little while to actually put this magnesium intake to good use and not flush it out like it has had to do with the toxins.

In summary: ReMag™ is Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) by the FDA and is free of heavy metals.
