This is very important information for all women to read.
Many of us are unaware of the value and importance of
having an adequate supply of Vitamin D. To see how
seriously we should take Vitamin D, have a very close
look at the following diagram with the causes and
consquences of Vitamin D deficiency.
After reading the following information, do not rely soley
upon blood tests to indicate whether or not you have a
Vitamin D deficiency. I have had Type 1 Diabetes for twenty years now, and not once did my Vitamin D deficiency show up
in all the blood tests I had, even though I had the symptoms.
I told the doctor all my symptoms and as usual I just got a
blank look and an offer for me to have an x-ray. I had muscle weakness, muscle pain, rickets on my legs, type 1 diabetes and still the doctor did not recognize the symptoms of Vitamin D deficiency.
Sadly most people know more than doctors these days. You can find most answers to your symptoms on the internet. Doctors are super religious about not ever going on the internet for information. They refuse to check out my website.
The job for most doctors these days is to work for the powerful drug companies, by only prescribing medications, and not in preventing illnesses before they become serious. This is exactly how the drug companies want doctors to work.
The drug companies and many doctors are now only interested in one thing, making MONEY out of us. Heaven forbid if people were to find out just how much sugar and gluten are destroying our health. What would the doctors and drug companies do if we all started to get healthy.
The standard blood tests do not show up any results until
your problem has become quite serious, and then all doctors
do is happily hand over to you a prescription for medication,
which most likely you will have to take for the rest of your life.
Of course this makes the doctor happy, because you will have to come back routinely for a new prescriptions, and it will also make the drug companies very happy too.
I had a underactive thyroid for many years and not once did
the blood tests pick it up, until it was seriously affecting
my health. Once again, the doctor did not recognize the symptoms of an underactive thyroid in me, and refused to believe me because of the lack of results in the blood tests.
I was also severely gluten intolerant and the blood tests
never ever showed up anything, until my health was severely
I believe that many doctors are just working for the big
drug companies now, and are only trained to give out
medications. They are purposely not trained enough in the field of vitamin deficiency symptoms, and they certain do not
get trained at all about the negative effects of sugar and gluten
on our bodies.
Sugar and gluten are responsible for so many serious health problems that we develop as we become older. All of my many health problems were created by sugar and gluten.
Both sugar and gluten wreak havoc throughout your mind and body, causing more and more inflammation in your joints and in your organs. As a result you can develop a whole host of serious physical and mental issues such Diabetes, Bi-Polar,
Cancer and Arthritis.
Please share the following valuable information with all your
friends and family. You may just help prevent them from developing Type 1 Diabetes and Cancer.

The 10 Symptoms Of Vitamin D Deficiency
Decades ago, health care professionals thought vitamin D was only good for keeping healthy bones and teeth. Recent advances in science, however, have put this vitamin in the spotlight by revealing its multifaceted role in the proper functioning of the human body and its ability to lower the risk of illnesses not formerly associated with it.
Despite the recent revelations about the potential of vitamin D, it appears that not everyone appreciates this discovery. The current lifestyle of working indoors has contributed to the growing number of vitamin D deficiency cases worldwide. This is compounded by the fact that not everyone is aware that he or she may be vitamin D deficient.
Am I vitamin D deficient?
The best way to discover vitamin D deficiency is to take a blood test that will measure the level of the vitamin in your blood. You can either ask your doctor to administer the test or buy a home test kit do the test yourself. However, you are certainly vitamin D deficient if you have any of the following ailments, and you need to consult with your doctor regarding your preventive, as well as curative, options as soon as possible.
*Do not rely on blood tests to show your Vitamin D deficiency.
They will only show results when it has become quite serious.
Look at the diagram to see if you have the symptoms. If you do not get much sunlight, then it is highly likely that you are deficient in Vitamin D. Simple. ~ Sony
1.) The flu - In a study published in the Cambridge Journals, it was discovered that vitamin D deficiency predisposes children to respiratory diseases. An intervention study conducted showed that vitamin D reduces the incidence of respiratory infections in children.
2.) Muscle weakness - According to Michael F. Holick, a leading vitamin D expert, muscle weakness is usually caused by vitamin D deficiency because for skeletal muscles to function properly, their vitamin D receptors must be sustained by vitamin D.
3.) Psoriasis - In a study published by the UK PubMed central, it was discovered that synthetic vitamin D analogues were found useful in the treatment of psoriasis.
4.) Chronic kidney disease - According to Holick, patients with advanced chronic kidney diseases (especially those requiring dialysis) are unable to make the active form of vitamin D. These individuals need to take 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 or one of its calcemic analogues to support calcium metabolism, decrease the risk of renal bone disease and regulate parathyroid hormone levels.
5.) Diabetes - A study conducted in Finland was featured in Lancet.com in which 10,366 children were given 2000 international units (IU)/day of vitamin D3 per day during their first day of life. The children were monitored for 31 years and in all of them, the risk of type 1 diabetes was reduced by 80 percent.
6.) Asthma - Vitamin D may reduce the severity of asthma attacks. Research conducted in Japan revealed that asthma attacks in school children were significantly lowered in those subjects taking a daily vitamin D supplement of 1200 IU a day.
7.) Periodontal disease - Those suffering from this chronic gum disease that causes swelling and bleeding gums should consider raising their vitamin D levels to produce defensins and cathelicidin, compounds that contain microbial properties and lower the number of bacteria in the mouth.
8.) Cardiovascular disease - Congestive heart failure is associated with vitamin D deficiency. Research conducted at Harvard University among nurses found that women with low vitamin D levels (17 ng/m [42 nmol/L]) had a 67 percent increased risk of developing hypertension.
9.) Schizophrenia and Depression - These disorders have been linked to vitamin D deficiency. In a study, it was discovered that maintaining sufficient vitamin D among pregnant women and during childhood was necessary to satisfy the vitamin D receptor in the brain integral for brain development and mental function maintenance in later life.
10.) Cancer - Researchers at Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington DC discovered a connection between high vitamin D intake and reduced risk of breast cancer. These findings, presented at the American Association for Cancer Research, revealed that increased doses of the sunshine vitamin were linked to a 75 percent reduction in overall cancer growth and 50 percent reduction in tumor cases among those already having the disease. Of interest was the capacity of vitamin supplementation to help control the development and growth of breast cancer specially estrogen-sensitive breast cancer.
Prevention is proactive
These various health conditions associated with vitamin D deficiency need not be something to fear. A proactive approach to prevention can assist in the avoidance of the many chronic diseases associated with vitamin D deficiency.
