Vitamin D is this good for you?

Thought I would resurrect this article from 2005 and clarify why I think Vit D is essential but to explain that it should not be taken in the form of supplements.

The original article with the comments: Vitamin D therapy

Just to clarify: The Vitamin D that is so essential is the Vitamin D that our bodies make themselves.

The article appears below but first read the comment with updates that I have added to the original article:

Perhaps it would help to understand why NOT taking Vit D supplements is better?

Click on the click here link and go to the ‘history’ tab.

You will learn that the ‘D’ in the skin is a FAT called 7-dehydrocholesterol and is not Vit D but the precursor to Vit D and part of the hormonal sequence that gets played out in the body when the body makes its own Vit D.

I originally wrote the article when I heard of someone staying in a darkened room and keeping out of the sunlight. I was horrified and concerned about that person and frustrated that anyone should listen to such advice to stay out of the daylight and live in a darkened room.

The ‘stuff’ we need in our skins that is activated by sunlight is not Vit D.

So I wonder if the supplements of Vit D are not what the body needs and may actually confuse the body as it tries to assimilate something it makes itself?

So for the sake of clarity for the moment I am calling the stuff the body does need when the sunlight is on the skin – ‘Stuff’.

We do need the ‘stuff’ that makes a substance that helps calcium work and I don’t believe we get that substance from supplements.

I believe we get it from oily fish and animal fat and daylight, sunlight on our skin.

The fad to avoid animal fat is bad health advice as that fat contains many substances our bodies need.

Animal fat is not a cause of bad cholesterol and bad health.

Bad cholesterol in the body is caused by an absence of good cholesterol from oily fish, runny eggs and animal fat, an absence of an amino acid (from protein) and an absence of minerals and vitamins in other words an absence of good quality fish, meat, vegetables and fruits.

But Bad cholesterol’s main cause is the increase of the consumption of refined carbohydrates.

The point I was trying to make in the article above was the bad advice to avoid Vit D from our food and from the daylight or sunlight.

Our bodies need the type of ‘stuff’ that is produced in the skin by the sunlight. We need the type of ‘stuff’ that is found in animals and fish.

That type of ‘stuff’ is 7-dehydrocholesterol a precursor to vitamin D in other words the body makes its own Vitamin D from 7-dehydrocholesterol so therefore we do not need to take supplements but do need to go out into the daylight and eat oily fish and animal fat.

Perhaps this is why low vitamin D levels are being reported everywhere – because of the lack of going out into the daylight, the practice of wearing sunglasses and the practice of not eating a little animal fat and gristle when we eat meat.

What does the team think … about Vitamin D? Also click here and here for reasons why Vitamin D is essential!

If you can believe the Marshall Protocol, in ME people, the immune system having been bombarded with bacteria, hasn’t coped. This has resulted in the bacteria reforming as bacteria cells without walls (which are difficult to kill) so Dr Marshall (not an MD or GP but a scientist) has suggested living a life that denies the newly formed bacteria its life force which in this case is Vit D. Interestingly if you click on to the Marshall Protocol website you will find it difficult to gain information because you have to register first. Which I am always suspicious of, I mean why make it difficult for people to read about your discoveries, why have a website in the first place?

I think that living such a restricted lifestyle for a long unspecified period of time (sunglasses, darkened rooms, no food that contains Vit D, no sitting in the light never mind the sun) is really quite dodgy if not dangerous. Has no-one heard of Rickets? Osteoporosis? What else? And for what? A hoped for cure from ME, but what will it leave you with? Will the final end justify the means?

This ‘cure’ for ME could result in other very distressing diseases because of the lack of Vitamin D.

Rickets is caused by a lack of calcium, and to absorb calcium you need Vitamin D.

Osteoporosis is caused by calcium being leached from the bones generally because of hormonal imbalances, a lack of Vitamin D has the potential to be very harmful in this situation as it is needed to utilise calcium.

Vitamin D is also involved in many other functions of the body and a lack, and in the Marshall Protocol a total lack, could be extremely debilitating.
