"Magnificent Magnesium by Dennis Goodman, MD should be read by everyone who is concerned about the issues of health."--Richard W. Walker, Jr. MD "Richard W. Walker, Jr. MD"
"Magnificent Magnesium by Dennis Goodman, MD should be read by everyone who is concerned about the issues of health. That would include both the lay public and healthcare professionals. There are several ways I use to determine if a writer, of healthcare information, has done a good job with the material being presented: first, has the writer been able to translate difficult medical and scientific constructs so that it digestible? This means can one understand, on a basic level, what's being said; can a reader who may not have an advanced education learn from what is written? Second, is the material scientifically sound and presents up to date knowledge that is confirmed in the literature? Third, and probably the most important, can the reader use the information to improve the quality of their lives, and hopefully, at cost and permanently? Fourth, is there something that, I as a physician, can extract as new and usable information? After reading Dr. Goodman's book the answer to all the above questions is a resounding, yes!
The book is easy reading and will educate you as you go through it. It addresses many issues that healthcare providers who practice the new medicine called Functional Medicine believe and do. Functional Medicine is medicine that looks for the root causation of illness and does not just treat the manifestations of a disease but addresses why the disease/condition is there in the first place. It also attempts to reduce the use of pharmaceuticals/medications as much as possible. Exchanging medications for what the body is natural lacking or requiring that allows it to function better physiologically.
After I read the book my wife started reading it. She asked me, are we taking magnesium? I said no. We both looked at each other and said we'll start today. Good work Dr. Goodman and thanks."
