Have you heard the buzz about Vitamin D? If you have visited my blog previously, you have....it has been shown to be a very important hormone (that's right, Vitamin D is not a vitamin, but a hormone) in the fight against cancer, as well as other diseases. In fact, if you have a passion to donate to cancer research for in lieu of holiday gift giving, I highly recommend the Vitamin D Society for the paramount work they are doing in D research and education.
I wanted to share what I have learned about Vitamin D3, which is a major immunity booster. It can alleviate several health concerns when taken in higher doses of 5,000 iu per day. In this linked article, Dr. Sircus, one of the doctors who spoke at the Cure to Cancer symposium, he talks about the immune boosting effects of D.
For those concerned about Ebola...Vit D is key, according to a recently published article by Natural News - apparently the Center for Disease Control has Vitamin D in its ebola fighting plan of attack.
Vitamin D is known to be anti-angiogenesis (prevents cancer from spreading), and in fact, one of the research speakers at the Cure to Cancer summit series talked about a group of men with stage 1 and 2 prostrate cancer - who agreed to forgo conventional treatment and use 10,000 iu of Vit D for a year. After that one year period 50% were cancer free and the remainder of the group all had lower PSAs and were doing well, and decided to continue Vit D3. if one were to explore PubMed and medical journals you can find numerous studies on the benefits of Vit D. Not too long ago I published much more in depth notes specifically on benefits of D as part of a protocol for cancer. You can scroll down or search in the field with the key words VItamin D.
Another mineral important for immune and overall health is Magnesium - which is better absorbed through the skin, per the books on overcoming cancer that I have been reading.
Magnesium is good for the heart. Magnesium Chloride can be obtained in crystal flakes, and dissolved in water to create a spray that is misted on the skin to dry. Another recommendation is to bathe in dissolved magnesium crystals and baking soda.
When taking higher doses of vitamin D we have been instructed by one of our doctors to ensure adequate vitamin K2 intake. Jesse's chiropractor is in agreement with the 10,000 iu of vitamin D3 he is taking to help reduce the inflammation from the three bulged discs.
The next time you have a doctor appointment you may wish to request a Vit D level test from the lab - ideally, levels for healthy people should be between 40-70, but with compromised health one may wish to achieve levels 70-100, as is the case for Jesse and his anti cancer protocol.
May you stay well this coming cold and flu season,
