Why Magnesium Matters…

Magnesium is an essential mineral and is the fourth most abundant mineral used in the body. It is an essential cofactor for over 300 enzymatic systems in the body that regulate biochemical reactions. Some of these include protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, blood pressure maintenance, bone structure, energy production, memory, and detoxification. In 2015 the Food and Drug Administration concluded that Americans were under consuming magnesium and listed it as a “nutrient of concern”. Turns out over 60% of Americans are deficient in magnesium. The recommended RDA in men is 400 mg and in women is 310 mg. (older adults and athletes may need 20 – 50 mg more). Deficiency symptoms include anxiety and agitation, restless legs and muscle cramps, sleep disorders, abnormal heart rhythms, poor nail...

The Power of A Second Opinion

The Power of A Second Opinion by Dr. Nancy Palermo Lietz, MD Caroline was a healthy 46 year old diagnosed with breast carcinoma in situ following a radiology biopsy done after an abnormal mammogram. As with many women, she was eager to proceed with treatment and was quickly referred to a surgeon through her primary care with no forethought or research on treatment options.  She was quickly scheduled for a lumpectomy and node biopsy only to find out a month later that the cancer was more advanced and she would require further surgery and treatment.
