    "Good Information With a Couple of Exceptions."

    In general, Dr. Dean does an excellent job of informing the public about the critical need for magnesium supplementation. There are two exceptions that I take regarding her recommendations.

    The first is not a big deal, but it did bother me when the author kept pushing a specific brand of ionic magnesium. Don't get me wrong, it is an exceptionally effective brand but it made me wonder what ties she had to this company.

    The second, and in my opinion, a very important point is how Dr. Dean pushed and insisted on the "importance of grains in the diet". I thought that as an ND she would at least mention that the phytic acid in grains make any minerals contained in them unavailable to the body if the grains are not optimally prepared. A high phytic acid diet can result in serious mineral deficiencies. A diet high in grains can make any digestive issues worse due to the inflammatory effect grains have on the digestive system. It has been recommended that those with Crohn's, IBS or celiac disease should avoid all grains. Additionally, grains have a higher glycemic index than sugar, so what would the recommendation be for diabetics?

    In my opinion, ionic solutions and transdermal application should have been stressed since our food sources of magnesium are so very poor.

    "Good primer on Magnesium"
    What made the experience of listening to The Magnesium Miracle the most enjoyable?

    Narration was excellent.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Carolyn Dean, M.D, N.D.? Why or why not?

    Probably not. Some of her health and nutritional recommendations are contrary to recent research. So even though this is a "new edition", some information is definitely dated and potential probablematic for some individuals (example: gut biome, leaky gut).

    Fair amount of repition of the same information - useful if one was only reading the chapters that applied to them - tedious if you listened to the entire book.

    "Thank GOD for this audio book!!"
    Would you listen to The Magnesium Miracle again? Why?

    Hmm.. listening to it just ONCE is good enough. It has a TON of information, but you will get the message just listening to it once as there is a fair bit of repetition. Doesn't bother me at all. Actually I would say it's a GOOD thing, as you will remember the information more easily, instead of getting lost in a sea of information overload!


    What other book might you compare The Magnesium Miracle to and why?

    The Vitamin D Cure by Dr. James Dowd and Diane Stafford. There is a direct co-relation between Vitamin D and Magnesium intake for superior health and after listening to both books, would say that it goes very well together!


    Which character – as performed by Pam Ward – was your favorite?

    Not relevant, but very expressive narration! She makes the book 'come alive' with her energy and vibrant attitude!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Oh no but it DID keep me very attentive! I have discovered SO many things on this one mineral alone that has helped my personal health tremendously! Including twitching muscles in my eye lid, my life long battle with asthma, muscle cramps, and so much more!


    Any additional comments?

    Get this book! And get your Magnesium in your diet and medicine cabinet!! And watch your health improve!!

    "Ad for writer's products"

    The book surely contains all one could know about Magnesium! It is however very confusing unless you are a chemist, a doctor or a scientist and even if you are any of those, most of the book is focused on selling the author's products.
    Long, boring and a brain wash towards sales.

    I love self-help books that deal with mind and body in a more holistic way. Also theology, history, literature~ among others.

    "this is an awesome book!"

    I found this book to be very helpful and informative. I not realize how important magnesium is to the normal functioning of the human body. I'm grateful for all that I learned from the writer. I highly recommend it.

    "Wow!! What a great informative book!"

    She went in great detail why Magnesium is such a wonderful miraculous mineral for us all. And how we are all are all deficient of it. She gives a long list of symptoms that may indicate that we are defiant. She did repeat In some aspect but I could use that in order to remember and learn. The conventional meds are making us worse so this supplement is a great one to try to possibly replace the conventional meds that may be doing more harm than good. Especially if we are deficient of Mg. It's a great book and I am glad I bought it in audible finished it quicker that way. Enjoy it!
