Blockbuster Drug Might Devastate Your Health

You have to read down the article to discover the kind of drug he’s talking about. It’s cholesterol lowering statin drugs.

Dr. Wright makes two points. First, that new guidelines say you don’t have to have high cholesterol to take them. What? Are they kidding? That would include almost half of everyone between 45 and 70 years old. And if you’re a man over 60, you are automatically included.

The second point is the list of negative side effects. It’s huge. And none of the effects are minor. They include:

  • Bad memory

  • Cataracts

  • Increased chance of heart failure

  • Greater chance of type 2 diabetes

  • Muscle pain and weakness

Ironically, the new guidelines emphasize giving these drugs to diabetics and smokers. This is puzzling because statins won’t protect from these. And if you look at the list above, it actually can cause diabetes. Unbelievable!

Surprising Magnesium Deficiency Symptoms

“Every known illness is associated with a magnesium deficiency.”

That is a quote from Dr. Norman Shealy. He also says it is rarely diagnosed.

But why is this so?

First, every organ in the body and every tissue needs magnesium. Second, modern agriculture has created food very low in this vital nutrient. Third, most of it is in tissues, not blood. This makes it hard to spot with a simple blood test.

But you can spot it in symptoms. Here are some of the more obvious:

  • Muscle cramps, twitches and pain.

  • Chest tightness or sighing.

  • Constipation, urinary spasms, menstrual cramps, difficulty swallowing.

  • Insomnia, anxiety, hyperactivity and restlessness.

  • Heart palpitations or arrhythmias, angina.

Even brain issues can indicate a need for more magnesium.

The full list is much, much longer. To see the whole story, click here.

All the best to you for your health and happiness,
