Again Vitamin D Proven to Safeguard Health!

Life as it's lived

Now is D3 time- from Lifeasitslived

First, Vitamin D found itself on the cover of US News & World Report ("The Amazing Vitamin D", Dec. 18, 2006 issue, pp.65, 66). Inside was a two page article on the benefits of Vitamin D, and some of the problems people encounter when there is a deficiency. By the end of the article, it stated "that 2000IUs is a worthy goal for everybody".

Vitamin D deficiency showed up in back pain sufferers, type 2 diabetes, female infertility, osteoarthritis and osteoporosis, migraines, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's Disease, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, tooth decay, and obesity. Interestingly, Vitamin D levels decline by up to 50% as part of the aging process.

Then on June 23rd, 2008 in the journal Archives of Internal Medicine the lead author Dr. Harald Dobnig, of the Medical University of Graz in Austria said, it's not "ultimate proof" of the harmful effects of too little vitamin D, "But the evidence is just becoming overwhelming at this point." Dr. Dobnig goes on to state, "Physicians should be aware of the widespread problem of low vitamin D status." He bases these statements on his "study showing a significant association between serum (blood) vitamin D levels and risk of all-cause and cardiovascular mortality,"

Low vitamin D levels have been linked in recent studies to an increased risk of breast, colon and endometrial cancers, and multiple sclerosis. Men with low vitamin D appear to have a higher risk of heart attacks.

Vitamin D is best known for its role in working with calcium to build strong bones. New studies indicate Vitamin D may also reduce cancer risk, prevent tooth loss, help with muscle strength (including our heart muscle), fight infection (such as the flu), prevent the progression and development of multiple sclerosis, improve lung function, protect against rheumatoid arthritis, protect against Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), and the list goes on.

Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is the preferred form of Vitamin D and the form made by animals. Vitamin A, magnesium and strontium compete with Vitamin D for absorption and when supplemented should be taken separately. Vitamin K2 aids absorption.  Vitamin D should be taken with Calcium supplements to improve its bone building ability, and also with Boron, which is essential for the conversion of Vitamin D to its active form.

Basically, our bodies can make vitamin D3 only when our skin is exposed to sunlight under the proper conditions. This production is dependent on the season, where we live and time of day. Also, people with darkly pigmented skin living in northern or southern latitudes have lower synthesis compared to fair skin people. Plus, sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 8 reduces the production of vitamin D3 by over 95%. During late autumn through winter, little or no vitamin D can be produced by sun exposure at latitudes above 35° north, which runs through the middle of the United States. Elderly, nursing home residents and people who work night shifts or spend a lot of time indoors are also at high risk for vitamin D deficiency.

Old Time TB Remedy to Modern Day Cold Corrective

It's that season again and a natural remedy that has become Europe's favorite is now becoming the favorite cold remedy in the US. First some history about this remarkable herb.

In 1897 Charles Stevens arrived in South Africa suffering from a serious upper respiratory illness, tuberculosis. A native Zulu healer gave him a decoction of Pelargonium sidoides (Umcka) a unique species of geranium found in South Africa. Stevens fully recovered and returned to England, where he sold the decoction commercially as Stevens Consumption Cure. It was very popular throughout Europe.

In 1920, Adrien Sechehaye, a Swiss missionary doctor used the remedy to treat over 800 patients successfully. As pharmaceutical drugs emerged, Stevens’ remedy was slowly forgotten, only to be rediscovered by European researchers who verified its remarkable abilities. It has been shown clinically to shorten the duration and reduce the severity of symptoms associated with the common cold- congestion, headache, cough, sore throat, hoarseness and minor aches. Even  more important this herb helps to reduce the migration of the cold into bronchitis, tonsillitis and sinusitis. It also reduces those symptoms.

It is widely recommended by doctors and pediatricians because of its high success rate and safety even for very young children over the age of two. In an evaluation study, over 90% of patients and doctors rated Pelrgonium sidoides as an effective remedy for colds and upper respiratory irritations.

Sore throat warning: if sore throat is severe, persists more than 2 days, is accompanied or followed by a fever, headache, rash, nausea or vomiting, consult a doctor promptly.

They located an H1N1 (Hi-one No-one) virus lurking in the store and proceeded to attack and kill it.  Given that their tools were ineffective, (gee, wonder why) they decided to befriend it and the virus lived out it's short life in peace, bothering no one. As reported by Starr Reporter, SF top reporter reporting at the scene as it happens, to be reported.

     Here we have a final close-up of the brave agents and the inimical H1N1. Agent Flugonebad on the left and Agent Sickalot on the right and we know who is the middle.
