I was just diagnosed with low Vitamin D. I originally went to the doctor because of severe leg, feet, and hand cramps. He did blood work, and it turns out my level is 5.9. I am now on 50,000 iu per week and 2000 iu per day. I just started this week, but I honestly feel worse instead of better. My muscle cramps are much worse. Of course, I know it's early in the treatment, but I too, would like to know how long before I start feeling better. I work full time, and I am so exhausted, I can hardly function.
I had the Same problem myself. Did so much reading and called Dr a few more times. I had 3 deficiencies already and found out I had a 4th. Magnesium!
Taking vitamin D will magnify any magnesium deficiency symptoms. Even if you are just slightly low in magnesium. So I take 250mg a day now of Mag & 6,000iu of D. Also 1500 of B12 & 325mg of Iron and a multivitamin with extra 'energy' vitamins. Horrible feeling this way! Stay strong!!
This is probably because of how vitamin D works according to the HI DOSE video I saw, that explains that high doses of vitamin D , is very effective , and needed to heal.
But there's a catch , at first ,the injury becomes worse ,and then it gets better.
The reason , is very interesting.
It is because , vitamin D at first , breaks apart the injured tissues , and then re-formulates them. All this can kinda hurt.
Just as vit D inserts calcium into bones , it also transports healing properties into injuries.
The Video I saw , gave an example of a man who had a sore , abscessed area in his arm , and it had healed partially.
But when he started to take vitamin D in hi doses, it became sore again , but then, it healed much better than ever.
Apparently, vitamin D in high doses , has been hijacked by the pharmaceutical industry and they give it some pharmaceutical fancy name to patent it , and disguise it . ... but it's just highjacking mother nature .
Their ally, the FDA lies , tellng the public ,we need a much with lower dose!
This also relates to vitamin c suggested FDA amount.
Vit c in high doses ,is also able to cure cancer and heal many issues, and we need it , to keep our collogen strong in our arteries TO PREVENT heart attacks (gorillas in zoos ,having heart attacks triggered this research)
We need as much vit c , as a goat consumes , around 9,000 mg per day .any zoo keeper has to provide hi doses, for snimals but doctors are unaware for people!!
Even if we pee it out .. Thats what we need .. As much as a goat!!!
Look it up !
And vit c gives me sprinter energy..
Its amazing - works with our ATP
The youtube videos about both vitamin topics can be found by googling the key words ...
but the vit D explanation ,as to why the sun heals us , goes something like :
It relates to a hibernating bear...
Mr bear , goes without the sun, for months , so his cells stop dividing while its sleeping, ...
and that is how ,our bodies react to being indoors out of the sun.
We shut off , our system thinks that we are hibernating ...
and so,when we take vitamin D ,it wakes ours cells , so they can break down and then create new ones.
Cosmetic issue and vit D
I learned that my thinning eyelashes could be due to a lack of vitamin D which makes sense , because I forgot to take it for many months , and I stayed inside a lot , it's partially due to being older, 52 , but perhaps the science behind it , relates to getting older , low harmones , and needing vitamin D even more !!
Since , Estrogens make cells grow , being older , my harmones are lnow low ...
then, being low on vit d , would , makes cells far slower
... So goodbye ,new eyelash growth!
The lash + vit D connection:
I discovered this , when I looked into lash enhancer's , and it has a similar Component in it ,that relates to what vitamin D has inside it's miraculous composition ,
I can't recall the name of it right now , because I'm tired ...
some kind of fat , we all need...
Im signing off now , hope that helps
