Vitamin D: A powerful natural antibiotic
The purpose of this blog is to provide you with actionable information that will empower you to take control of your health and free yourself from the dysfunctional disease treatment system which is increasingly exclusive, dangerous, demeaning, disempowering, and unaffordably expensive for millions of people and for the United States government. You don't believe that? I'll be telling you what the director of the Government accounting office said about it.
To take control of your health, you must be able to stop infections. The use of the correct dose of vitamin D. will usually do this quicker, more economically, more reliably, easier, safer, and more comfortably than any other method I know. I have been using this method for over a year and continue to find it works better than any other method I have ever used.
Here's how: at the first sign of an infection take vitamin D 1000 IU per pound of body weight each day for three days. If you weigh if you weigh 150 pounds, you take 150,000 units each day for three days. By the third day you'll probably be free of any symptoms or at least they will be much milder than usual.
Vitamin D 50,000 IU capsules is available from Biotech Pharmacal, 800.345.1199. Ask for vitamin D 3-50, which comes in 12 count bottles.
Here's how it worked for Ronald, a 73-year-old retired executive, who consulted me on the advice of a physician friend of his for advice on how he could extend his healthspan and delay the effects of aging. There were, of course, many things that Ronald could do and we talked about them. One of the more important things was to avoid getting sick with an infection. Infections, particularly the flu and pneumonia, are not friends of people in their 70s. Before long, several people in Ronald's family got colds that went into bronchitis. Ronald, too, started getting sick, but took his vitamin D 200,000 IU daily for three days. In three days he was symptom-free. The rest of the family recovered in about three weeks. About two months later another bout of colds and bronchitis started through the family. Same thing again: Ronald took his vitamin D and didn't get sick. This time the family noticed that he was the only one who had not been sick with these respiratory infections. They then decided that they all wanted to take vitamin D.
Vitamin D is not the only thing you must know about and use skillfully if you are to declare your independence from the disease treatment system. However, vitamin D is probably the most important one thing you need to know about and use because it does so many things so well at so little expense. The other thing, also a natural substance, normally present in the body and necessary for health, is thyroid hormone, both T-3 and T4. I intend to be writing about thyroid hormone soon, but before that I would like to tell you where you can get excellent very interesting information about vitamin D, what all it does, and how to use it. In subsequent posts I will tell you about some of the more important additional uses.
