D3, Swine Flu And A Few Other Things: Summary of Findings.
UPDATE: D3SwineFlu.com launched. All future info on D3 will be published there.
D3 is a potent hormone which acts on many body systems.
70 per cent or so – more than 1 in 3 westerners do not have enough in their bodies. This is because of modern living and hence this widespread shortage of “Vitamin” D3 is causally associated with many widespread modern diseases such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, asthma and other allergies and auto-imune diseases.
Nothing gets worse quicker than if you starve the body of Vitamin D3 and if you feed it D3 the body stays well. Of course a balanced diet and trips to your physician do not replace a simple supplement. But they can help.
Get your serum D3 measured by the doc and aim for something around the 90 level. Take supplements to keep to that. In spring start taking the sun in moderate dose so you build a healthy tan whilst never burning.
Avoid sunscreen. It does not lead to healthy habits with the sun or stop skin cancer and it does stop D3 production. So in the summer, if you do this, reduce your supplementation. Take repeat blood tests.
D3 shortage is also associated with depression, seasonal affectve disorder and schizophrenia.
