Winter – How can I get enough vitamin D?

Nov 3, 2017

Vitamin D scientists recommend to maintain an optimal vitamin D blood level between 100-150 nmol/L. This is approximately 4,000 IU per day to reach this level. UV exposure to skin is best for producing Vitamin D. A sun bed can produce up to 10,000 IU in just one session!

Experts Speak Out on Sunlight

Dec 10, 2014

Professors of medicine Robert P.Heaney, Reinhold Vieth, and Michael F. Hollick speak out: “The most natural way to make vitamin D, is to expose our skin to the sun. A sure way to know that you are producing vitamin D, is when you see your skin start to tan. Sun beds are used as an alternative to going outdoors, particularly in the winter time and can produce vitamin D perfectly well. When experiments are covered on how much vitamin D the sun really does produce, the results are actually conducted in Tanning Salons!” A last point Dr. Heaney states is “Sunscreen manufacturers have invested interest in scaring us to death so we will use more of their product, and that I think needs to be resisted, it is a mistake.

Tanning Beds and Vitamin D

Feb 20, 2017

In this video, Dr. Jory from Toronto, states he uses tanning beds to get vitamin D synthesis. If you live in a northern climate anywhere in Canada, a lot of the U.S, Europe etc, a lot of these places don’t have any Vitamin D in the winter time, even if it’s a beautiful sunny day in February. One of the best ways to supplement for the sun, is using tanning beds because they have ultraviolet B radiation and can also be effective for those suffering from seasonal affective disorder (S.A.D).

What are Vitamin D Deficiency Symptoms?

Apr 23, 2015

Dr. Josh Axe talks about Vitamin D deficiency. He says, “There are ways to know if you are vitamin D deficient such as: having a weak immune system, struggling with ups and downs emotionally like depression or anxiety, hormone imbalances, having trouble gaining muscle or losing weight, weak bones & teeth or suffering from osteoporosis. Vitamin D is not just a vitamin, it is also a pro hormone. There are many causes to being deficient, and the major cause is not getting enough sunlight. You will only get small amounts of vitamin D through diet alone. Make sure you are getting enough vitamin D, because it’s an immune boosting nutrient that you’ve got to have!

Dr. Oz on The Importance of Vitamin D

2009

Dr.Oz & the importance of Vitamin D
“ If I had to think of one vitamin to push for everyone to think about again in their lives.. it’s vitamin D, not only is it important just for bone health like most people think vitamin D is for, it’s important for high blood pressure, it’s important for cancer: breast, colon, prostate. Getting vitamin D is the best way to enhance your immune system. The sun is the best way to produce vitamin D because the sun rays hit us, and convert our cholesterol into Vitamin D and that’s exactly why in the winter months, our cholesterol numbers go up!”

Vitamin D kills the flu virus so STOP BLOCKING OUR SUNLIGHT!

2009

If you ask anybody that takes 5000 units of vitamin D every day, they will tell you they just don’t get sick anymore, it just doesn’t happen. How that works is- Your body makes natural incurring antibiotics, and Vitamin D regulates and increases production of these natural antibiotics. Of course that makes sense, do you generally get colds or flu’s in the summertime? This is more common in the wintertime because your body produces less than one third of vitamin D than it does in the summer. Scientists confuse facts with theories. For example, people get more heart attacks in the winter because they are shovelling snow, or because of influenza.. the fact is people get more heart attacks in the winter, everything else is theory. Over 100 years ago, every doctor knew that the sunshine was a cure for tuberculosis because of the vitamin D. Any infectious disease is more common in the winter time, as a target of vitamin D.

Ian Wishart, Vitamin D author, clashes with Cancer Society

Sep 26, 2012

Is our obsession with being “sun safe” killing us? Ian Wishart, vitamin D author states “In the last 10 to 15 years scientists have realized vitamin D is actually quite unique, and is not technically a vitamin, it’s a hormone. For pregnant women, your fetus; your developing baby is desperate for vitamin D for brain development. Studies have shown, if you don’t have vitamin D during pregnancy, your child has a higher risk of a lower IQ & poor motor skills. Lack of vitamin D is creating major health issues for our planet. We’ve become so concerned with being “sun safe” that we are putting our health at risk at a much greater level. We are killing more people by saying don’t stay in the sun.” Ian Wishart debates with the Cancer Society proving that people that have higher levels of Vitamin D and are getting more sun, have LESS risk of dying from melanoma & other cancers. Ian challenges a Cancer Society representative to name a study that proves sunscreen protects against melanoma, but there are none to be found. “This is not personal against the cancer Society, says Ian, but’s it’s a massive conflict of interest. They make money from marketing sunscreen, in fact the melanoma foundation is sed by sunscreen manufacturers! Like I said, there is not one credible study in the world that proves sunscreen protects against melanoma, but yet every summer The Cancer Society, The Ministry of Health and the Melanoma Foundations around the world are telling us to use more sunscreen.” This video is a Must Watch!
