MAG-pie & MAG-net Alert!…

Iron Toxicity Post #53: You were NOT born with a “Red Light” deficiency!

“The two most Important Days of your Life: the day you were born, and the day you discover WHY!” — Mark Twain

I LOVE that quote from Mr. Clemmons!… He was such a sage. And he’s right, the day you FINALLY figure out WHY you’re here is MAG-ical. It is indelibly etched in my psyche and relates ENTIRELY to stepping onto this virtual “Podium” or some would say, “Bully Pulpit!” Nevertheless, I’m having the time of my life and I never regret this 2nd “birthday!

OK, enough of that reflective stuff, what’s Magnesium Man got up his sleeve today?…


Yesterday there was a Thread on Hypothyroidism that had some very interesting comments and links, not the least of which was this one on “Red Light!”

I also enjoyed the appearance of our “Light being” @Jack Kruse, MD. He never fails to stimulate our little grey cells, n’est ce pas?!?…

In any event, I elected to take the dive with the Blog on how “Red Light” helps to address an underactive Thyroid. It was provocative and thoughtful, but do people have ANY idea where “Red Light” comes from INSIDE of our cells?…

“Red Light” is GENERATED when there is PROPER function of Complex IV (Cytochrome c Oxidase) of the Mitochondrial ETC (Electron Transport Chain). Why is THAT?… Because Complex IV does NOT work without Bioavailable Copper. It’s ALSO worth noting that Copper & “Red Light” have a VERY symbiotic relationship.

So this Blog article is an IMPORTANT Clue about what is MISSING from a HEALTHY Thyroid – bioavailable Copper! Do you get that?!? And where is that Copper absence GREATEST?… The KEY Enzyme TPO (Thyroid Peroxidase) works BEST when there is Wholefood Vit-C in the system, as it is a source of bioavailable Copper. (Do you think the Tyrosinase in that Wholefood Vit-C MIGHT have a connection to the Tyrosines that are being loaded with Iodine?!?… Am I the ONLY one that sees this OBVIOUS deflection of reality by the world of convention obsessed with taking our Thyroids HOSTAGE?…)

In any event, that got me thinking and searching this morning for some additional research re this “Red Light” phenomenon. What I came across is an ABSOLUTE Blockbuster:

Kim, 2014, “Lightening up Light Therapy: Activation of Retrograde Pathway by Photobiomodulation”

I know you all have very active, demanding & stress-filled lives. But please, take the 30 min it will take you to read through this VERY IMPORTANT & TIMELY study. What’s important to understand at the outset that PBM (Photobiomodulation) is considered a “cutting edge” mechanism for addressing metabolic shortages and dysfunction via the use of LLLT (Low Level Laser Therapy).

Yes, there’s great BUZZ about using Lasers, LEDs, and related technology. It clearly works to relieve symptoms, but is it just ANOTHER expensive CRUTCH or just MORE diversion from the REAL mineral & metabolic issues?!?… And fundamentally, does PBM CORRECT the underlying issues that are CAUSING this metabolic chaos?

Know that I could spend the rest of this month commenting on what I learned reading this CRITICAL article, but what I want to stress are just a few key points:

  1. Rapidly growing cells prefer cell death instead of fixing the damaged mitochondria
  2. Electromagnetic light must Ionize biological systems that it effects
  3. Irradiation [by] External Electromagnetic Energy can INCREASE & SUBSTITUTE [emphasis added] for Endogenous ATP production
  4. Radiation of Red Light (at 628 nm on the Light Spectrum) results in Expression Shifts of 111 Genes in HS27 Human Fibroblasts (Zhang, 2013) [PLEASE RE-READ THAT AGAIN… 😉 ]
  5. These “111 Expressive Shifts” were grouped into 10 Functional Categories that promoted extracellular matrix proteins, orchestrated an Increase in ATP production, and orchestrated an INCREASE IN CELLULAR STRESS RESISTANCE [Again, emphasis added]; and the GRANDADDY of them all
  6. Retrograde Signaling [a form of mitochondrial “Stress!” response] can be “mediated” [stupid way of saying STIMULATED] by
    1. Mitochondrial Membrane Potential (CAUSED by Copper<>Iron dysregulation…)
    2. ROS, Reactive Oxygen Species. (CAUSED by Copper<>Iron dysregulation…)
    3. Changes in Calcium Flow (Caused by Iron dysregulation affecting Mg status…)
    4. Nitric Oxide binding to Cytochrome c Oxidase (Again, CAUSED by Iron dysregulation which is spelled out here:

And those wishing to dig in EVEN deeper, please follow this trail. These are BOTH BLOCKBUSTER articles, as well:

Lane, N., 2006, “Power Games”

Karu, T. I., 2008, “Mitochondrial Signaling in Mammalian Cells Activated by Red & Near-IR Radiation”

OK, so what’s my point?…

Yes, there clearly is Mitochondrial Stress – we KNOW that – and what we are NOW learning is that it reaches over and TOUCHES the Nucleus. (Please see the Figure below… ) Think this Iron-induced Oxidative Stress, as noted in points 6a thru 6d MIGHT just be the TRUE source of the Genetic “defects” that we’re supposed to beLIEve come from MARS?!?…

And yes, these exogenous electromagnetic machines emit a “Red Light” that CLEARLY helps to CORRECT this chaos and confusion inside our cells. So, why am I NOT excited at this prospect?…

YOU WERE NOT BORN WITH A “RED LIGHT” DEFICIENCY. YOU WERE BORN WITH EXCESS, UNBOUND IRON ALONG WITH A NOTABBLE SHORTAGE OF BIOAVAILABLE COPPER. And that’s ^^^^ a FACT! Please know that these powerful & penetrating research studies are “lighting” the way for what the TRUE issues are – just as we’ve been saying for FOUR YEARS…

And please don’t misunderstand my comments above. I’m very excited with these developments. In fact, I’m seriously contemplating ADDING “Red Light” to the Root Cause Protocol. It’s that powerful, but I do so as a MEANS TO AN END. And the ultimate purpose in our efforts on MAG are to create MORE Ceruloplasmin and allow the body to regain its mineral and metabolic homeostasis.

Now last licks…

I was fascinated to learn that the great Otto Warburg KNEW much of this back in 1931 when he received the Nobel Prize for his work on NONE OTHER than the Mitochondrial Respiratory Enzyme that was related to Hemoglobin, which turns out to be Cytochrome c Oxidase (E.C. We have learned a thing or two since 1931, but he was on the trail. Here’s what he had to say about his award at the banquet in December of 1931:

What Otto Warburg said in his Nobel Speech in Dec, 1931

As you often read, Dr. Warburg is credited with theorizing the CAUSE of Cancer. It turns out that that is not entirely correct. Here’s a provocative overview of what he DID discover:

What Otto Warburg REALLY discovered:

But what Dr. Warburg did know was that Cancer cells had THREE key conditions: 1) LOW Ph; 2) LOW Oxygen; and 3) LOW ATP… Intriguing…. And know that when Oxygen is LOW, the cell is forced to produced ATP via Fermentation, and NOT via Oxygen, which is its PREFERRED route.

It turns out that Otto Warburg was STUDYING the KEY Mitochondrial Enzyme (Cytochrome c Oxidase) that is FUELED by bioavailable Copper and he theorized the very 3 cellular conditions that are CAUSED by excess, unbound Iron…

Fascinating… ABSOLUTELY Fascinating! Forgive me, but my mind’s BLOWN at this point!…

Now here’s what you may NOT know…

When the Mitochondria has access to Oxygen to “burn its food-based fuel,” it is relying on Copper to OXIDIZE the sugars and fats to enable the production of ATP. And here’s the breakdown:

  • 1 Unit of Fat yields 120 ATPs…
  • 1 Unit of Sugar yields 32-34 ATPs…
  • But when the cell is FORCED to go “Anaerobic” (because of a LOSS of Copper and/or excess of Iron…) and Fermentation is used to breakdown the sugars, the yield is 2 ATPs… (Please note the prevalence of Mg ions needed to make the Anaerobic Citric Acid Cycle work properly… )


So, the methodical depletion of Copper in our diet over the last 100 yrs, and the KNOWN process of Iron fortification that have introduced absurd levels of Iron into our bodies have LOWERED our ability to use “gas” that can do 120 MPG or 32 MPG, and we are forced to ferment our foods and BURN UP whatever Maggie we might possibly have. And for those of you wondering HOW & WHY you have Chronic Fatigue – please look NO FURTHER…


Know that we’re on the RIGHT track with our focus on MAG. And for those that are just joining us, please take the time to familiarize yourself with the Video and the Root Cause Protocol.

Taking the time to do that just might save your life, and it will certainly save you YEARS of misery groping for a “solution” in a conventional medical system that is ONLY committed to “treating” your condition. And the LATEST GADGET in their arsenal of goodies are their Lasers that help, but, again, ONLY “treat” your condition…

MAG is FULLY committed to allowing you to regain your mineral & metabolic balance – NATURALLY.

A votre sante!
