Vitamin D, Infections and Chronic Disease
A normal vitamin D level means little.
We think bacteria and viruses are tiny little things we can easily eliminate. Sometimes yes. Other times – far from. They are smart. They have evolved with us and also way faster than us.
Turns out that these little punks (infections) hijack our ability to USE vitamin D for our immune system.
Because they know that vitamin D kills them.
Next time you go to the doctor, check your 25 OH vitamin D3, don’t think you’re ‘Great! Your levels are above 50’ – no.
That’s not how it works.
I highly recommend you talk with your doctor about checking your 25 OH Vitamin D3 AND 1,25 OH Vitamin D3 levels.
It is the 1,25 OH Vitamin D3 that is the active one.
However, that still isn’t enough because what that active vitamin D3 does is stimulate your vitamin D gene to get to work fighting infections.
Some of infections can block your vitamin D gene from working!
If you’ve struggled for a long time, you MUST look for infections.
- chronic pain
- chronic fatigue
- mental dysfunction / mood swings
- autoimmune conditions
- chronic stress
You MUST look for infections.
Any type of infection you must look for:
All locations should be evaluated:
- Nose and Sinus (swab – culture and sensitivity and possible x-ray)
- Teeth and Gums (swab and possible x-ray)
- Stool (comprehensive digestive stool analysis)
Having a ‘normal’ 25 OH Vitamin D3 level is NOT enough.
Is your 25 OH Vitamin D3 level above normal but feeling abnormal?
Has your doctor checked for chronic infections?
