While reading Dr Dean's new book - Magnesium - The Missing Link to Total Health, a Bible verse kept coming to mind, which reads: "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge for thou hast rejected knowledge". Hosea, Chapter 4 verse 6. This book is priceless, it is saving lives, and I am grateful to have this opportunity to share this knowledge with my customers.

"Magnesium The Missing Link to Total Health and other books by Dr Carolyn Dean have taught me that magnesium is "a fortiori" vital, now more than ever before! I own a health spa focusing on colon hydrotherapy and have learned that magnesium is critical to achieve gut peristalsis. Consistent, daily use of a well-absorbed magnesium, in conjunction with our colon hydrotherapy protocol, works incredibly well for our many clients who rely on our services for their optimal health."

I have been a big fan of Dr. Dean's work for years. I have been carrying her products in my practice. I was reluctant at first to add any new products, but after getting samples of some of her liquid minerals, magnesium lotion and balm, I was converted as a user and as a practitioner. It has enabled so much good healing and optimal health for my patients. I love her videos and articles. She is an excellent teacher and resource. I recently got my hands on a copy of her new book Magnesium The Missing Link to Total Health. As a busy practitioner, I found the book extremely easy to read. I appreciated the explanations and user friendly tips about different ways Magnesium is so beneficial. It makes me feel like a well-educated subject matter expert who is changing the health of my patients. Thanks Dr. Dean for such an incredible resource.

Dr. Carolyn Dean has hit the mark for both practitioner and laymen on the amazing overlooked benefits of Magnesium yet again. Her ability to write in a comforting tone yet firm stance is bar none when it comes to her expertise on this subject matter. Anyone who has been held in the dark about Magnesium will be brought into the light in this work. Purchase this book for yourself and all your doctors to give away as a gift. This one oversight on the application of pico meter sized magnesium is one of the biggest in medicine today considering the sheer amount of pressure everyone is under these days. Thank you Dr. Carolyn Dean for being the Magneisum Matriach we all need you to be. Aho!

I am so happy Dr. Carolyn Dean took the time to write this new book Magnesium The Missing Link to Total Health. This book feels and looks more accessible than the Magnesium Miracle she previously wrote. The table of contents is well organized allowing practitioners to quickly search for health issues and find a How & Why. I love how she included QR scannables inside the book providing direct access to the referenced research. I found the book to be easy to read and always appreciate Dr. Dean’s approach to helping clients. The idea of prescribing low potency nutrients with high bioavailability really stood out to me. From potential FDA regulations to preventing nutrient toxicity the approach to low dosing really made sense and was a reminder how well thought out Dr. Dean’s approach to patient health really is. Reading this book motivates me to continue spreading the word of pico-ionic minerals and how impactful they can be for others. I am grateful to have this knowledge and look forward to sharing these blessings. Thank You!! :)

“Anyone can pick up Dr. Carolyn Dean’s new release, Magnesium: The Missing Link to Total Health, and within a few minutes, be in awe of what magnesium can do for their health. Her bestselling book, The Magnesium Miracle, a magnum opus on magnesium, brought crucial information on magnesium to her readers, including myself. Her understanding and explanations of how magnesium works in our bodies are even more accessible in her latest book, reaching a wider audience that may be overwhelmed by information overload. Pay particular attention to Fun Fact 6 for Dr. Dean's take on the importance of both the absorption and stability of your picometer sized magnesium ion supplement, backed by her personal experience with only being able to reverse her own magnesium deficiency with a picometer sized, stable magnesium supplement source.”

More Great Words About Dr. Dean


Dr Dean’s book, Magnesium The Missing Link to Total Health is an excellent read and covers many topics that people need to know. It explains the issues. Magnesium is such an important piece of the puzzle. The book is of huge value. It needs to be shared with everyone, especially the seniors!

Marie Anderson

"The fact that picometer magnesium has the ability to be absorbed at higher therapeutic doses is a huge game changer. As someone who has been magnesium deficient my entire life, I now know how to maintain magnesium sufficiency. I am super grateful to Dr Carolyn Dean for writing these two books: The Magnesium Miracle and Magnesium - The Missing Link to Total Health. I recommend them to anyone who wants to learn all there is to know about magnesium!"

Terry Truesdale, DDS

"I started learning about magnesium in 2017 when I read Dr. Dean’s book, The Magnesium Miracle. At that time, I couldn’t fully comprehend the research regarding magnesium deficiency but I was convinced that it was a supplement I needed to try. Within weeks, magnesium supplementation greatly improved my sleep and reduced muscle tension and soreness. In 2021, I completed medical training to become a Physician Assistant. Based on my own experience, I began to recommend magnesium supplementation to my patients and noticed immense improvements in sleep quality, exercise capacity, digestive health and stress management.

Now, as a clinician, I have revisited the literature in Dr. Dean’s newest book Magnesium: The Missing Link to Total Health. This book has convinced me that magnesium deficiency is a public health issue that needs to be taken seriously by both conventional healthcare professionals and natural medicine practitioners. While the use of magnesium supplementation lacks randomized placebo controlled trials, as most vitamins and minerals do, the evidence in Dr. Dean’s latest book strongly supports the efficacy and safety of magnesium supplementation as a staple supplement for both lifestyle and preventive medicine.

I'm a business owner and a heart patient who believes in the benefits of magnesium. Dr Carolyn Dean's new book, Magnesium - The Missing Link to Total Health, gets right to the point. It contains the "nuts and bolts" about magnesium and is easy to read.

Kevin Horning

This book is an incredibly valuable resource for health practitioners and their patients. It is a concise summary of the importance of correcting magnesium deficiency for long term health, and the importance of the most absorbable form: stable, pico-ions of magnesium. Dr. Dean presents a summary of research and clinical experience in small, digestible pieces. Magnesium - The Missing Link to Total Health will not only guide practitioners in advising patients on how to supplement magnesium, it provides the baseline information on how magnesium supports the structure and function of the body and brain along the continuum from poor health to complete wellness. After reading this book, I will be informing all of my clients to supplement with stable, pico-sized ions of magnesium.

It combines medical expertise with accessible writing, practical advice, and a focus on empowerment, making it a potentially impactful read for individuals seeking to improve their health naturally.

Jesse Guiterrez

The book, Magnesium - The Missing Link to Total Health by Dr Carolyn Dean, contains really good information that is important to know! Two of the most important things magnesium does is to regulate calcium and activate vitamin D3. It may not be the only supplement to take, but it is the most important one. The challenge is that it there are hurdles to getting enough of it because it is blocked by many things including herbicides, pesticides, pharmaceuticals and more. When customers supplement sufficiently, it is amazing to witness how beneficial magnesium is!

Magnesium, The Missing Link to Total Health is a great resource for my patients to get a better understanding of the importance of Magnesium. I found the book to be very helpful and informative. It is written in a way that makes it easy to read. Dr. Carolyn Dean has dedicated lots of time and energy studying and researching the benefits of liquid magnesium. I always have to do my own extensive homework when it comes to joining forces with other practitioners like Dr. Dean. I have to put my name behind each product I sell here so that I can ensure it is of the highest quality and that it is effective and worth the cost and effort of taking it. Dr. Dean has hit a grand slam with this book. I am thrilled to be able to offer her high-quality products and have been incredibly happy with the resources and educational materials like this book.

Christopher Mclaine, DC, HHC

My late father, renowned compounding pharmacist E. George Roentsch, gifted me a copy of Dr. Dean's "The Magnesium Miracle" back in 2003. For my own health,and for the health of my clients. I have faithfully incorporated magnesium into recommended protocols since opening my practice in 2005.

Last year I reread Dean's The Magnesium Miracle's 2nd Edition, once again impressed with both the importance of the subject and Dr. Dean's thorough treatment of it. I have purchased several copies and lent or given them to clients to help inform them.

Her latest book "Magnesium: The Missing Link to Total Health" continues to drive the many points home and does so most compellingly. An excellent read for the lay person, as a researcher and practioner I especially value the many excellent references. It took longer to read this book than many, simply because I was hunting down reference after reference and adding them to my files. (I also purchased another book Dean recommended - a collection of studies "Magnesium in the Central Nervous System" edited by Robert Vink and Mihai Nechifor and another that caught my eye based on Dean's work, "Death by Calcium" by Thomas Levy, MD, JD.)

The bad news is that magnesium deficiency is at epidemic proportion in our population and has been for a very long time. The good news is that correcting it is easily done and can improve and sometimes remedy virtually all of our chronic health conditions.

For the person interested in what is behind today's most pressing health issues, Dean's new book starts out as a page turner in Chapter 1 - 'Exploring Magnesium Facts,' with the very first simply and powerfully stated: "Fun Fact One: 80% of Metabolism and 18 Main Functions." From here she follows with twelve more "fun facts" (sometimes not so "fun!") regarding magnesium and its profound influence on health.

The heart of the book is dedicated to detailing a full 68 magnesium deficiency related health conditions, and it would have been a much shorter list to detail what ISN'T there than what is! This is an excellent quick reference for whatever it is that "ails 'ya."

Dean spent more time in this book compared to ""The Magnesium Miracle,"" as I recall, talking about the importance of the pico ionic form of magnesium when it comes to optimal absorption. While reading this book I personally switched my magnesium supplement to this form and am in the process of educating my clients in that direction. As a strong proponent and user of the l-threonate form of magnesium for the brain, I was very intrigued with her clarification regarding magnesium, cerebral spinal fluid, and the blood brain barrier. I still haven't given up the concomitant use of l-threonate, but it is something I would love to discuss with her.

Resounding strongly with me and what I value when it comes to protecting and improving health from a nutrional perspective, I appreciated Dean's elucidation of magnesium's critical role in:
1. mitochondrial energy production
2. glutathione production
3. epigenetic influence to include methylation and MTHFR defects

Dean also importantly emphasizes common factors that deplete magnesium, perhaps chief among them very commonly prescribed medications very often prescribed to treat the very conditions caused by magnesium deficiency in the first place!

This book will remain an important part of my reference library and another book I will purchase several copies of to enthusiastically share with my clients.

I have three main points to share about Dr Carolyn Dean's book:
1. It could not have been written any better.
2. The book is well formatted and fun to read.
3. Dr Dean, as a MD and ND, encompasses the whole spectrum of health knowledge and has the credentials that should open minds across all of healthcare. The current system of medicine has put doctors in the backseat and they don't even know it. They all need to read this book and get a different toolbox!

As a pharmacist who consults and does retail pharmacy, I include a bag tag on the prescriptions that I send, which states: "Magnesium is responsible for 80% of known metabolic body functions." Glad it's on the front of the book! Next I am going to read Dr Dean's book, titled: "Death by Modern Medicine".
