Re, "Missing him": Oh, yes, I still can see him standing there taking that "golden nugget" out of the lunch sack, and to this day, whenever I am tempted to eat a candy bar, you better believe at least it has nuts, usually a Payday, lol!
It really upsets me when I hear, "the cause of toxemia is still not known," what BS! Poor guy, was so disheartened that other docs wouldn't pay attention to his research! In the last phone conversation I had with him before he died, he said, "I am tired of hitting my head against a brick wall!" I assured him the midwives were paying attention, even if the docs weren't.
Brewer's diet is specific for preventing toxemia, if HTN is related to other problems (as it sounds like yours is), and not preeclampsia, other methods must be used.
Re Magnesium: yes, mag deficiency is rampant in our culture, and you should never take a Ca suppliment w/o Mag to balance it out.
But... I thought hypomagnesia was related to high BP, not low? Can it go either way? If it causes low BP, why do they start Mag drips on hypertensive women? This makes no sense to me. Please explain how hypomagnesia can cause hypotension.
