CDC – The Vaccine Fraud – Part 2

autism coverupIn Part 2 of CDC – the vaccine fraud, I would like to remind you just how fraudulent the pharmaceutical industry is. This is why you should be so careful and do your homework, before you ingest any of the drugs or have any procedures that the pharmaceutical industry produce and that includes vaccinations.  For Part 1 click here  and Part 3, Part 4, Part 5 and Part 6.  But first some information about childhood diseases.

CDC – The Vaccine Fraud

Robert De NiroHow many of you have been told by your government, your doctor, the FDA, the CDC, that vaccines are safe and effective?  Of course, the pharmaceutical industry are always touting the safety and efficacy of their products, but that’s to be expected, they’re all about making profits, which is at the top of their priority list.

Magnesium Deficiency Test

Mg glassHow many of you have gone to the doctor and been told you should have a Magnesium (Mg) deficiency test?  Not many I bet.

So out of those of you that’s had a test, how many were given the Total Serum Mg Test?  All of you I suspect.

And of those of you who had the serum test, how many of you were found to be Mg deficient?  One, two, none?

So, you’re not Mg deficient, the test says so.  What else could it be.  Perhaps you are..uhm..calcium deficient.  There’s a couple of clinical tests for that and if you are unfortunate enough to be one of those that reacts to these tests, your doctor could come to the conclusion that you are in fact calcium deficient.

A clinical test

So lets look at the common Mg testing procedures in the UK and the US.    There are a number of tests that can be used for Mg deficiency and 2 common clinical tests that can be done in the doctor’s surgery.  The problem with these clinical tests is they indicate either a Ca or Mg deficiency.  Because the tests cannot distinguish between which mineral is deficient and Mg deficiency is deemed to be rareCa:Mg ratio, if the test is positive, it is Ca deficiency that will be presumed and a suitable supplement or diet plan prescribed.  As a result, a Mg deficiency, which is more likely to be the case, is overlooked, exacerbated and depleted even lower, causing more problems and symptoms.

For those interested, the two clinical tests are
  1. Chvostek’s sign which is a twitching of facial muscles as a response to tapping a facial nerve in front of the ear.
  2. Trousseau’s sign which causes spasm in hand muscles after applying a blood pressure cuff to the forearm below the elbow for 3 minutes, at a level above systolic pressure.
The totally useless total serum Mg test

This is the most commonly used Mg test in the UK and the US.  Unfortunately, it is next to useless and invariably gives a false positive result.

serum testIt’s no wonder that most doctors think it is very rare to be Mg deficient.  They get this duff information from the results of serum tests.  The tests comes back normal and patients’ records are updated to reflect this result.

This is what happens when dogma and an inability to change, encumbers the medical profession, making a profound difference to a patient’s diagnosis!  This mis-diagnosis could cause incalculable distress and misery for a patient that may have a simple Mg deficiency.  So patients are told that Mg levels are normal and they dismiss the fact that a Mg deficiency could be the cause of their condition.

So why is this?

Less than 1% of our body’s total Mg can be measured in blood serum.  Most of our Mg is found in bones – around 60% and inside muscle and other cells – around 40%.  If magnesium drops in the extracellular fluids, there’s a danger of a heart event.  Thus, the body makes sure that the amount of Mg in blood fluids is stable at all times, even when bodywide levels are low.  This means, even if you are deficient in this mineral, your body will keep your blood serum magnesium level normal.  So the antiquated blood serum test has no value in showing your real Mg levels. In fact, it is positively dangerous because it gives false information and consequently the wrong diagnosis can result, with the wrong treatment and possible improper use of prescription drugs.

red blood cellsThe RBC (red blood cell) test

Every cell in our body contains Mg and that includes red blood cells.  About 40% of Mg is found in our cells so using red blood cells is deemed to be a more accurate measuring procedure. Even so, it’s still not testing the whole of the body’s Mg levels.  Despite this not being an ideal method, it is marginally better than the serum test.  Why the rbc test is not done in favour of the serum test, is a mystery.  By the way, you can request a test from  RequestATest.com if you want to get yourself tested, but don’t rely too much on the result!

Educate your doctor?

Your doctor could arrange a rbc test for you if you can convince him of the folly of a serum test.  This could be a tricky conversation as many doctors seem to get tetchy if questioned or informed of something they don’t know already.  Many patients are nervous about questioning their doctor but this is your health and you have a right to query your treatment and any aspect of your diagnosis.  Some doctors though, are grateful for the facts and are genuinly pleased when patients take an interest in their own health.

The EXATest

The third test I want to talk about is the EXATest.  This is a test devised by IntraCellular Diagnostics and is used to identify certain minerals within a cell.  The test is very expensive so check your insurance or Medicare and see if they cover it.

EXATestHow it works

This test uses cells scraped from the inside of your mouth.  Not in the usual place like for DNA testing ie. the inside of the cheek, but rather from under the tongue close to the bottom teeth.  It is called a ‘buccal cell smear test’.  Sampling kits are sent to your doctor’s surgery and he then takes a smear using a wooden spatula.  It takes no longer than a minute.  The scraping is carefully placed onto a microscope slide, left to dry and sent back to the EXATest company.  The problem with the EXATest is not many doctor’s even know about it, let alone offer it.

The serum versus the EXATest

Quite by accident, I came across a site about AF (atrial fibrillation).  It is run by Travis who suffers from AF.  He already knows about the benefits of Mg and that most AFibbers are deficient and asked his doctor for a test, done in early 2013. The test result was normal.  He then returned to be tested again in early 2015.  The test came back normal, again.

doctorHe had heard of the EXATest in 2014 and decided to get it done.  After much searching, he found a naturopath that offered the test.  The total fee, was a little over $700 but I understand that the cost has come down markedly since then.  The result of his test, done just two months after the 2nd serum test, showed him to be Mg deficient, well below the normal range, despite the serum test showing twice that he was in the middle of the normal range.

Other tests?

There are a couple more tests that can be done ie. The Challenge Test and the Blood Ionized Mg Test but the challenge test is inconvenient and needs constant monitoring and the ionizing test is limited to the inventors, the Alturas’ laboratory and for research purposes, at the present time.

So what’s the answer?

Are these false positive results of the serum test the reason why the medical profession think this deficiency is rare?  Could it be that physicians are so used to the same old, same old that they are missing something vital to the health of us all?  Is this lack of knowledge actually compromising accurate diagnoses and treatments?

grass tetanyIn my mind, it would be better not to test at all and just give the patient some good quality Mg.  Why is the medical profession not listening to the research that has proven that a large majority of the population is Mg deficient.  After all it is not a drug, it is a natural mineral that we all need; us, all other animals and all plant life.  Even our farm animals are treated better than us with respect to Mg.  Ever heard of ‘grass tetany’?

Why are we not informed?

If the whole population was informed about the indispensable need for Mg it could alleviate a plethora of symptoms, illnesses and cardiovascular problems!  It could also save tax payers lives, tax payers money and tax payers misery!

How would you feel without it?

Here are just a few symptoms of Mg deficiency.  Remember, everyone is different and each of us will suffer different symptoms in varying degrees of severity.  All the conditions listed below have been endured and tolerated by countless sufferers in varying degrees over decades.  Mg is vital for recovery from any illness and condition and guards against further disease.  The majority of the conditions listed below are not induced by genetics.

Mg testsADHD, anxiety, arrhythmia, asthma, atherosclerosis, atrial fibrillation, brain fog, chronic fatigue syndrome, confusion, constipation, cystitis, depression, diabetes, fibrositis, fibromyalgia, headaches, heart disease, high blood pressure, hyperactivity, hypoglycemia, insomnia, irritable bowel syndrome, kidney disease, liver disease, memory loss, migraines, mitral valve prolapse, muscle spasms, muscle weakness, nerve problems, numb hands and feet, osteoporosis, polycystic ovarian disease, preeclampsia, raynaud’s syndrome, restless legs syndrome, shortness of breath, seizures, stroke, syndrome X, tooth decay, tremor, twitches and tics, vertigo.
Perhaps it’s because…

Well, there’s one big drawback with using Mg.  It won’t help Big Pharma’s coffers!!  Businesses are not interested in a product that doesn’t make money and Mg is a cheap mineral that can’t be patented.  Profits will be in jeopardy if patients start getting well and recovering from diseases.  If you think Big Pharma’s prime concern is the welfare of its paying customers, think again.  Money comes first!  Therefore, Mg will not be in widespread use anytime soon from those medics controlled by the pharmaceutical industry.

Ches PowerTake control

There’s only one answer.  Take control.  Do your own research.  A good start would be replete your body with Mg.

What is Magnesium Chloride?

MgCl2Many people ask me which is the best magnesium (Mg) supplement to take and I always answer Mg Chloride (MgCl2). Then there’s the inevitable second question. What is Mg Chloride? Before I can answer there is often a 3rd question.  Why do you recommend Mg Chloride rather than any other Mg supplement?

So this article is to fully explain what MgCl2 is and why I think it is the best Mg supplement to take.  Have a look at this article about the benefits of this supplement.

Mg Chloride is the name for the chemical compound with the formula MgCl2 and its various hydrates MgCl2(H2O)x. These salts are highly soluble in water.  The hydrated Mg Chloride can be extracted from brine or sea water.

So many variables

The problem with Mg is, there are so many variations with some Mg salts being more bio available than others.   But who do you trust to tell you the truth?  The pharmaceutical companies?  The food manufacturers?   Your doctor?  It’s no wonder the public is confused as to which is the most efficient and bio available.  This is apart from the fact that few in the medical industry seem to even know about Mg and that includes allopathic doctors!

Not sure?

If you’re not sure what to do, research for yourself and your family.  If you haven’t got time to do your own research, look for a source that has no axe to grind and gives out information freely.  A source that has no ties with big pharma, big agra or food manufacturers.

A list of different Mg salts

Listed below in alphabetical order, is a rundown of the different magnesium salts available. You have probably realised that you can’t take magnesium in its elemental form ie. as a metal so it has to be processed to make it available to the body as a supplement.

  • Magnesium Aspartate – SCV 2.43 –  Avoid – breaks down to aspartic acid which is neurotoxic
  • Magnesium Bicarbonate – used as antacids
  • Magnesium Carbonate – used as antacids
  • Magnesium Chloride (6H2O) – SCV zero – 120mg of elemental Mg per 1 gram of salt
  • Magnesium Citrate – SCV 2.8 – 150mg of elemental Mg per 1 gram of salt
  • Magnesium Gluconate – SCV 0.70 – 50mg of elemental Mg per 1 gram of salt – used in drips
  • Magnesium Glutamate – Avoid – breaks down to glutamic acid which is neurotoxic
  • Magnesium Glycinate – SCV 3.45 – 100mg of elemental Mg per 1 gram of salt
  • Magnesium Lysinate – used as a food additive
  • Magnesium Malate – SCV 1.55 – 150mg of elemental Mg per l gram of salt
  • Magnesium Orotate – 60mg of elemental Mg per 1 gram of salt
  • Magnesium Oxide –  Only 4% bio available – 600mg of elemental Mg per 1 gram of salt
  • Magnesium Phosphate – laxatives and antacids
  • Magnesium Sulfate – Epsom Salts – Laxative – 100mg of elemental Mg per 1 gram of salt – used in drips
  • Magnesium Taurate – 100mg of elemental Mg per 1 gram of salt
It’s all about the bond

You may have noticed there is an SCV number next to some of them.  This is the Stability Constant Value of the Mg salts. This tells you if the strength of the bond between the two components is strong or weak.  The higher the number, the stronger the bond and the less bio availability.

Mg oxide’s laxative effect

Mg Oxide, for instance, has a very strong bond between the Mg and the oxygen which means it will not dissociate easily so the Mg cannot be used to any great extent biologically.  Instead, most of the compound will go straight through you giving a laxative Mg oxideeffect.  OK if you want a clear out!  I cannot find the official SCV of Mg oxide or some of the other salts, but I know the SCV of Mg oxide is high and is therefore strongly bonded to oxygen.  Unfortunately, Mg oxide is commonly added as the dietary source of magnesium to foods and supplements, because it’s cheap.  This likely produces dietary deficiencies resulting in poor health and a reduced life span. Mg oxide is at most only 4% bio available.

MgCl2 stability constant of zero

As you can see, Mg Chloride (MgCl2) has an SCV of zero.  This means the bond between the Mg and the chlorine to produce Mg Chloride is very weak.  This is good, because the two quickly disassociate from each other leaving the Mg in its ionic state to do its work immediately within the body.

What about Mg Citrate?

Mg Citrate also has quite a low SCV of just 2.8 and has good bio availability.  This molecule will give you a gentle laxative effect if you suffer from constipation which is a symptom for some people who have a Mg deficiency.  It is also very good for children, who often suffer with constipation, mainly because of all the junk food that’s available to them.  This is a very distressing condition for a child as well as the parents and also means that child has a Mg deficiency which can cause all kinds of serious conditions such as ADHD, ADD and asthma to name but a few and if not addressed, heralds health problems for the child’s future.  See this article which covers child constipation.

Food manufacturers at fault


You can blame the food manufacturers for putting temptation in a youngsters way with all  the relentless advertising of all the sweets and processed foods such as cereals, biscuits and fizzy drinks.   Parents will generally relent when being nagged constantly by their child to buy certain items of sweets, junk food or carbonated drinks.

Mg Citrate can be bought in a tasteless powder form which you can put into soups, porridges etc..  The kids won’t even know it’s there.  With Mg Chloride such as ReMag, the taste can be salty and bitter, especially if not taken with enough water.  Kids will often baulk at taking it unless it is well disguised (please, not with aspartame laced fizzy drinks).

Mg Gluconate in hospital drips

The other low SCV supplement is Mg Gluconate at SCV 0.70.  Have you ever visited a hospital, particularly to see an older friend or relative.   The patient is often attached to a clear fluid drip for re-hydration.  If you look at the contents of the drip bag (without touching it of course) you will likely see Mg Gluconate as one of the salts.

Mg SulphateMg Sulphate & Pregnancy

Mg Sulphate is a treatment for preeclampsia, a condition of pregnancy.  This dangerous problem can be avoided if the mother is well supplemented with Mg before and during her pregnancy.  The lack of this vital mineral can kill. That does sound a little dramatic but this is a condition that can be a danger to both mother and child and has also been linked to SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome).

Naming salts

The name of a salt has two parts. The first part is the name of the metal and second is the salt that is formed.  The second part of the name comes from the acid used to make it. The names of salts made from hydrochloric acid end in -chloride, while the names of salts made from sulfuric acid end in -sulfate.

Formation of salts
Metal Acid Salt
aluminium reacts with hydrochloricacid to make aluminium chloride
copper reacts with hydrochloricacid to make copper chloride
calcium reacts with sulfuric acid to make calcium sulfate
zinc reacts with sulfuric acid to make zinc sulfate

Mg forms Mg salts when it reacts with acids. Therefore, Mg reacts with hydrochloric acid to make Mg chloride

So why is Mg Chloride so bio available
  1. Mg is dissociated from the weak chloride bond, leaving a Mg ion that is so small it will readily permeate through cell walls.  Because of this permeability, the Mg does not cause the laxative effect because much of it does not get into the gut before it has been absorbed into the body.
  2. The compound MgCl2 is a very small molecule, consequently it can even be absorbed through the skin, that’s why many people use it topically.  (Another topical application is Mg sulphate (epsom salts), which people often put in their bathwater for a relaxing soak.)  Great for getting more Mg into your body whilst pregnant
ReMagMgClsupplements on the market

There are a few MgClsupplements on the market, perhaps the most famous is Dr Carolyn Dean’s ReMag, a very popular and high quality supplement.  Dr Dean advertises her product concentrating on the tiny size of the molecule, calling it ‘picometer’ size.  This well explains how very small this compound is.  It could be misconstrued that the picometer size is only applicable to this particular brand of  MgCl2 but this is not the case.  Whichever brand you use, all the supplements will be this very small ‘picometer’ size and this is the beauty of MgCl2

Dr Carolyn Dean’s ReMag

ReMag is easily available in the US where it is competitively priced, not so in the UK, where it is very expensive.  This makes it difficult for those with limited funding to afford.  That being the case, if you really want to use MgCl2 you can make it up yourself.

You must, however obtain the best quality MgCl2 salt to make into your solution.  Always use food quality, don’t be tempted to go for the cheaper lower quality stuff.  Once you have obtained your MgCl2 from a reputable supplier, you can make up a 250ml bottle of the solution as follows:

Pyrex JugHow to make up MgClsolution

Put 125 grams into a small marked pyrex jug.  Add just a little mineral water, enough to dissolve the salts and stir.   Add more water to make your solution up to the 250ml mark, stir again and then pour it into a suitable glass bottle.  It will be very cloudy at first but that is not sediment, it is air bubbles, which will start to clear in a few minutes.

100 doses from 250ml

This will give you 100 doses of 2.5ml (½ teaspoon).  Put one dose into a glass of water and drink over the course of the day.  If you don’t like the taste, lace it with a little cordial (NOT low sugar, we don’t want aspartame in it).  The taste doesn’t bother me but some find it a little bitter (hubby uses Rose’s lime cordial).  Up your doses gradually until you feel the difference.  Always spread your doses throughout the day.  Everyone needs a different dose and it’s a case of finding your own level.  I take around 2 teaspoons in a litre of water and drink it slowly throughout the day.  This gives me the equivalent of 600mg of elemental Mg. I used to suffer from insomnia, so to stop it recurring, I drink at least a quarter of my daily dose in the evening.  If I’m stressed or have a heavy day ahead, I will up my dose from 2 teaspoons to 2½.

Making up your own MgCl2 solution is much cheaper than buying it ready made.  It is a little inconvenient but well worth the trouble.  I have never bought MgCl2 in solution, I am quite happy Ches Powermaking it up myself.  Mind you, it is quite useful having hubby around as he has qualifications in peptide chemistry and has worked in a laboratory environment as a senior technical officer.
If someone who is au fait with chemistry takes this supplement every day, it may give you a clue as to how important it is for your overall health.
