Vitamin D actually saves lives

While the so-called "vaccines" are actually killing hundreds, if not thousands of people. It's not a mystery what is the real motivation behind pushing the shots, and it obviously isn't "saving lives" or the governments would be mandating Vitamin D supplements for everyone instead of trying to modify their genes.

Vitamin D reduces Covid-19 deaths by 60 per cent, a study has found, as MP David Davis today called for the therapy to be rolled out in hospitals immediately to 'save many thousands of lives.' The study evaluated the effectiveness of calcifediol - a Vitamin D3 - on more than 550 people admitted to the Covid-19 wards of the Hospital del Mar in Barcelona, Spain. 

Subjects were randomly assigned as either recipients of the calcifediol treatment or as controls on admission, before receiving five doses of the vitamin in increasing intervals of two, four, eight and 15 days. 

The research, published by the Social Science Research Network, found Covid-19 patients given doses of Vitamin D were 80 per cent less likely to require ICU treatment. Those from the University of Barcelona also concluded that 'adjusted results showed a reduced mortality of more than 60 per cent' for those who were given the calcifediol treatment. 

Now why do I suspect that those questioning this science - which is actual scientody as opposed to the scientistry of reading press releases from Big Pharma - aren't going to find themselves banned from social media?

From the "anecdote is data" file: been taking a 50,000IU D3 twice a week since last March, and otherwise doing nothing different. (No C or Zinc, no mask, not staying locked in the house, etc.)

There's a reason why our Northern European ancestor lost their skin melanin thousands of years ago. Dark skin can't make enough vitamin D under low light conditions of a northern winter, especially when skin is covered with animal furs to stay warm.

A daily dose of 2,000 IU of vitamin D keeps my blood levels mid range here in the Pacific Northwet. Don't forget to take a zinc supplement to aid your body in fighting off viruses, along with a copper supplement to prevent copper deficiency should the zinc supplement be a high dose.

Whether or not this particular study is valid, it has long been known that Vitamin D is effective when dealing with flus in general. Also, there are other reports of it being helpful when dealing with covid-19. It takes time for the vitamin to accumulate in your body, and you should be taking it ahead of any flue symptoms. If not, a really heavy dose is recommended by some people with the onset of flue symptoms. I take 5,000 units a day, which is a safe dosage, but may be more than necessary.

Regardless of all this conspiracy theory stuff, just watching how things develop makes me deeply disappointed in how the medical community is run. I used to blame doctors for how much medicine costs, and they do go along, but the major culprit is in how the system is set up.

I've been taking D3 for many years. Right now I'm at 4000IU daily. When I was at 5000IU I had a blood test done to make sure I wasn't suffering from Vitamin D toxicity, a known issue when taking large doses for long periods. My level was right smack in the middle of the acceptable range. It wasn't low, but it wasn't anywhere close to high. I'm 5'7" and 135 pounds. So, a relative lightweight like me can tolerate high doses like that for long periods of time with no ill effect and certainly lots of good effects. Dose away people!

I think you have to take 10000IU or more for a sustained period of time to become toxic.

Highly recommended to take with K2-Mk7, which I also take (150mcg daily), as it is known to be synergistic with D3. Although if you suffer from clotting disorders or are on blood thinners, be careful, because it is known to affect that function.

Blogger Kelly February 15, 2021 11:41 AM  

About a year before COVID, I took a course in grad school that focused on decision analysis in healthcare, taught by a data scientist whose day job was working for a large hospital system in my area. He mentioned in passing during one class that this hospital system had done a cost-benefit analysis on checking vitamin D levels as part of yearly physicals and decided against doing so. I was very curious about this because I've followed the research on D for a long time and also had a personal experience of being low, supplementing to correct it, and the difference was like night and day.

He didn't know the exact reason for it. Maybe it was as simple as everyone could benefit from supplementation regardless of their blood levels, but I think about this all the time since the connection between it and COVID has come out. I've also noted that (anecdotally of course) no doctors I see, or those of friends/family that I've asked about ever mention vitamin D at all, in any context.

And don't even THINK about mentioning chlorine dioxide. The FDA says a girl died once after taking it, so it must be super dangerous. So dangerous they can spray it on your meats, put it in blood bags, and use it for malaria. And it treats more things than I could list here. The problem is it costs like $0.01 per dose, and you don't have to be a doctor to make it. Just sodium chlorite and citric acid. Stuff from walmart or a hardware store.

During winter, people in Northern latitudes cannot make enough vitamin D from sunlight. In January, even the northern parts of Florida have too little.

Be aware 'vitamin D' is actually a hormone. It's also fat soluble, meaning it takes considerable time to process through the body, unlike water soluble vitamins. Excess levels are not good (highly concentrated is also called rat poison, literally the exact same D3 form, look it up). Vitamin D is not very common in nature besides through sunlight, and in that pathway has a feedback mechanism to avoid excess. Sunlight or a UVB lamp is far preferable to supplements. I went deep down this rabbit hole 10 years ago. Blood tests, experimentation, etc (my autoimmune condition worsened). It's not the miracle so many tout. Caution advised.

On a related note, 'vitamin A' isn't a vitamin either, and in reality is quite toxic. A number of 'deficiencies' are actually because of vitamin A toxicity. This is an emerging topic of epic scale that requires a paradigm shift towards nutrition beliefs (my autoimmune condition is much improved this time around, the ultimate litmus test, not vague blood work analysis but dramatic improvements in pain symptoms and quality of life).

I've noticed another benefit of taking Vitamin D, at least anecdotally in regards to myself. I've been taking 5,000 IU pills every day for the last couple months or so.

Before, I would have moments of intense anger. Irrational almost. Hard to control. I struggled to control it and keep myself from snapping sometimes. Sometimes I failed and snapped.

But lately, I haven't been feeling those moments. I still get angry, of course, but it's not the same. It's almost as if the Vitamin D is somehow affecting my mood. Again, this is just something I've been noticing anecdotally.

Re K2, it directs the calcium to bones and teeth where it's supposed to go, while K1, the original K, related to platelets and clotting.

I took Vit D3 after my doctor included that test and mine was too low, long ago.
I took it for a long time and even more after covid. Around 4-5000 IU.
My vit D level is 50, where standard range is 30-90.

Remember the US FDA does not care if you die as long as they can do long term studies to gather data.

Here is a link to a vit D3 chart that is striking. Ivor Cummins said that a sampling of Japanese showed 50% anti body presence but very low mortality. He credits high vit D levels.

My brother ignored my Vit D3 and horse paste ivermectin advice.

My 62 year old brother texted me. He did not tell me he was sick with covid for several days at home. Finally he tested in the 70% O2 sat level and is in the hospital.
Now this. He is getting better. 4 bags of IV remdesivir so far.

Actually, 10000 IU daily is just fine.

See the following studies.

The ones that are interesting to me are the studies about proper levels of supplementation, and corresponding serum levels balanced against the risks of side effects, particularly high levels of calcium -- hypercalcemia.

Go here
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5402701/

and here

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/25939935/

and here.

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/19364661/

All you need to do is read the abstracts.

The "standard/acceptable" levels can range from 600-2000 IU daily and a serum level of 25ng. Those levels seem to me very conservative and, in fact, these studies show you can take much more -- even up to 15,000 IU daily --and you can have serum levels in up to 100ng without any serious side effects. So it's not the dosage that's key, it's the level you get to WITH the dosage that matters.

Moreover, since Vitamin D is used by every cell in body there's ample reason to be more on the high side than not.

Our local hospital is doing this. As I have mentioned before, my friend who got sick and hospitalized with breathing problems and was given C, D3, Zinc, and B1. Plus steroids to calm the immune system and antibiotics to prevent his pneumonia from becoming bacterial. He was out in 5 days. Also note that back around March/April many doctors and nurses were warning about intubation, that it was actually killing the patients. They were called medical kooks. Well, this same hospital is doing exactly what those "medical kooks" said should be done. Give the patients oxygen and lay them on their stomachs. My friend says that as soon as they laid him on his stomach, his breathing became easier.

I told him way back when this thing first started to take C, D3, Zinc and Fever Tree Soda Water and he just brushed it off. As soon as he got out of the hospital, he bought a supply of C, D3, Zinc, and Fever Tree Soda Water with natural Quinine. He makes sure that his whole family takes it now.

I'm thinking as far back as maybe the mid nineties. You use to see kids out riding their bikes about. Kids playing in their yards and out in the streets. Neighborhood kids playing with neighborhood kids. You hardly see that anymore. Everyone has computers, Nintendo's, Play Stations, what not. All bundled up in their homes and barely venturing outside. Teens and young adults are absorbed with their iphone friends and chat. If they get out at all, it's usually party night. As for the older folks, many are just dumped into old folks homes to be medicated and out of sight. Not everyone is like this of course. There are still the outdoors types, but they are becoming fewer and fewer. Maybe technology isn't so grand as we think it is. Wall-E comes to mind. And, you will own nothing and you'll be happy!

It makes me happy to visit the kids and grandkids, seeing the grandkids out in their little 2 acre backyard covered in mother nature, having fun. Wild things.

They also figured out the flu wasn't the killer, it was the bacterial pneumonia, and they weren't aware of and hadn't invented antibiotics back then; that could have fought off the pneumonia!

As a contrarian voice, I had a doctor who put me on vitamin D for a while. Not even a particularly high dose from memory. Within 10 days I developed severe muscle pain and spams in my back. I stopped taking the vitamin D and they went away in two days. To this day we have no idea what was going on.

I do take a multivitamin supplement that has 400 IU of vitamin D daily, but apparently for me trying to increase that dosage isn't a good idea. This doesn't seem to be the case for the vast majority of people.

My primary care doc does check D as part of her patent's annual testing. I don't know if she eats it because the insurer only covers the standard panel, or they cover it.

Anyway, I was low, my office was on an atrium so I got little sun all day. Since covid hit we gave up half of our suite and the few times I go into the office, we share.

But I have been on D for three years with no issue and no affect on my other panel results.

I did have another blood test two months ago, and my lipids and kidney levels, which had been in the okay range, were better. The doctor said it was likely because working from home I am eating home cooked breakfast and dinner almost every day.

While investigating prostate problems my GP discovered that my Vit D levels were "pathetically" low...dangerously low. I've been supplementing with 2000 units per day and 20000 units every 3 weeks and the results have changed my life. My level is now spoton midrange and all the symptoms I attributed to getting old disappeared. I can work out with much greater intensity, joint and muscle aches and pains are gone and my generally low mood has turned into youthful optimism. I also missed out on the whole cold and flu season, though anti covid handwashing etc probably affected that.

Highly recommended.

They've known about this for over 100 years as it was the most effective treatment discovered during the Spanish flu.
Here's link to a video by an US military doctor, Dr Lee Merritt. In it she berates the medical establishment for not teaching med students about the simple, cheap and effective treatment/prophylaxis for these lung problems that they've known for decades.

Excess levels are not good (highly concentrated is also called rat poison, literally the exact same D3 form, look it up). Vitamin D is not very common in nature besides through sunlight, and in that pathway has a feedback mechanism to avoid excess. Sunlight or a UVB lamp is far preferable to supplements. I went deep down this rabbit hole 10 years ago. Blood tests, experimentation, etc (my autoimmune condition worsened). It's not the miracle so many tout. Caution advised.

On a related note, 'vitamin A' isn't a vitamin either, and in reality is quite toxic. A number of 'deficiencies' are actually because of vitamin A toxicity. This is an emerging topic of epic scale that requires a paradigm shift towards nutrition beliefs (my autoimmune condition is much improved this time around, the ultimate litmus test, not vague blood work analysis but dramatic improvements in pain symptoms and quality of life).

There's a reason why our Northern European ancestor lost their skin melanin thousands of years ago. Dark skin can't make enough vitamin D under low light conditions of a northern winter, especially when skin is covered with animal furs to stay warm.

You're not seriously suggesting that you believe in evolution are you?

If only Pfizer could patent vitamin D then Fauci would be screaming its importance from the roof tops.

Blogger The Pitchfork Rebel February 15, 2021 5:29 PM  

A family physician I had years ago told me how "treating the disease" rather than the patient and not recognizing the need for balance and re-evaluation can create problems that aren't anticipated. He talked about how the popular culture convinced people that to avoid skin cancer people needed to avoid sun exposure and when it couldn't be avoided, to trowel on the SPF.

He went on to say that you need to understand that the human body manufactures tens of thousands of units in just twenty minutes of sun exposure. which it then stores in the liver, adding that's your first clue about the importance of Vitamin D.

His advice was not to bake in the sun for hours and to avoid sunburn, but to get some sun exposure (half hour to an hour) when possible. He also told me most people are deficient and that the 400 IU daily requirement was promulgated when people had a lot more occupational sun exposure.

Too little Vitamin D is associated with cancer, diabetes, immunological disorders and the incidence of multiple sclerosis is much higher in northern locales than it is in tropical ones. The Eskimo affection for salmon is a necessity in the arctic or else they would all have Rickets.

He went on too say of course things can be overdone, so don't eat polar bear liver (contains an acute toxic dose) and you don't want to induce hypercalcemia, but all other things remaining equal you'll be much better off if your blood level is 50, rather than 25 (which an increasingly fewer proportion of physicians accept as sufficient).

Vitamin D, which is actually a group of fat-soluble secosteroids responsible for increasing intestinal absorption of minerals is among a lengthy list of important things there are common deficiencies for, such as Magnesium-principally due to soil depletion-and that contributes to mood disorders, insomnia and hypertension, that can all be remedied over the counter without a prescription (bummer for Big Pharma).

Next up, Vitamin B12, which tends to decrease as we age because of less efficient digestion, which is important for the production of healthy blood cells and hemoglobin and is only obtained from animal sources. If the deficiency is great enough, it produces symptoms that mimic Alzheimer's. It was common to give Vietnam era soldiers B-12 shots.

I'd love to see the covariance of poorer COVID outcomes and B-12 and magnesium deficiencies, given the effects of such deficiencies.

By the way @24 Evan E: Rat poison is usually warfarin, which is the the non-pharmaceutical grade of the blood thinner Coumadin. Most efficacious things can become toxic in a sufficient enough dose, so in all things moderation-hypervitaminosis D is usually associated with long-term replacement at doses of almost 10,000 U/day or more.

QUESTION:
Do you take that 5000units/day Vitamin D with calcium or in addition to a calcium+D supplement?

BTW:
Johnny said:
“... a really heavy dose is recommended by some people with the onset of flue symptoms.”


That really heavy [initial] dose is called a loading dose. It is used to quickly bring the medication level with-in the body to clinical dosage levels.

Today it is often used with certain families of antibiotics, it's been an accepted practice since the 1960's.

Extending the practice to suppliments is logical and reasonable.

I would suggest using dose loading when starting any supplement addition to a regimen, regardless of any illness concurrently extant.

A surgeon friend of mine recommended chelated zinc (daily), high IU vitamin D (once a week), and hydroxychloroquine (once a week), to help avoid coming down with covid, or to recover from it very quickly. I believe that's what he is currently taking!

He is correct however about Vit. A. I found in the course of my cold weather training that if you are forced to kill a polar bear for food, don't eat the liver. It is a prime source of Vitamin A and will kill you immediately.

I do not know the toxic natures of D, however I doubt that it is rat poison. I have not done any research...yet. I have a vague recollection Warfarin has a component and it is a drug that is strictly regulated.

We also know the the FDA is responsible for killing more people than helping them, so there's that little aspect.

Blogger RedJack February 15, 2021 5:59 PM  

I take about 2,00o to 4,000 IU of Vitamin D daily, and eat a diet rich in K.

When I had the COVID, it was a non event. Lost my sense of smell, felt a bit tired, but no other symptoms. Only reason I knew I had it is my bride tested positive. I later tested positive for antibodies.

Blogger eclecticme February 15, 2021 6:03 PM  

> "So its a global pandemic and you want people to just take vitamins?"

No, that would be silly. Also take Zinc, and maybe Quercetin.
After you come down with covid symptoms, and maybe before, take some ivermectin. The horse paste IVM is cheapest and easily available.

Trivia. There are a couple public interest patent cases, both out of Wisconsin. One related to sewage treatment. The other is related to Vit D. Some UW prof Steenbock invented a process for adding vit D to dairy products using UV radiation as I recall. It was assigned to the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF).

The only thing people in WI (the dairy state) hated more than Nazis were the people who made margarine. There were laws against coloring the naturally white margarine yellow, requiring separate food dye packets. Also high taxes so my IL relatives smuggled up margarine when they visited.

It was during WWII and WARF refused to grant a patent license to the evil margarine people to add vit D. In short, let people get rickets if they ate margarine instead of butter.

Someone did it anyway, and a patent suit resulted. On appeal. the court told WARF to pound sand.

WARFarin is named after WARF.

@59 There are for sure "hall monitors" being sent forth into social media to stop wrong-think, but on the other hand, it is important for a person to know what he's doing when he starts supplementing far above the (worthless) RDA levels for vitamin D. I had some issues for which my health care provider recommended 5000IU of D3 -- that's 5 drops of the liquid form. Those issues improved. I was already taking a multi with some D in it, and I got to thinking if 5 drops is good, no harm in taking 6 once in awhile... long story short, after a few years of going on like that, my blood tested in excess for vitamin D, which might have caused other kinds of trouble had it been allowed to continue. I capped my intake of vitamin D at 5000 IU, and my D levels were measured at an acceptable range. A person really does need to be careful with the fat soluble vitamins, but being TOO careful and avoiding supplementation when one might really need it is also harmful.

@87 You may be right VMF #7684, but I wonder is there is an even more sinister motive. (See the comments relating angry mood with low D levels.) Another harebrained do-gooder arrangement made by the rather profitable--- and soon to become profitable again -- "refugee resettlement biz" in the USA is to put Christian victims of severe persecution by Muslims in the same housing complex with Muslim refugees from the same country. And there ARE problems, from the Muslims, again. I know that there are organizations in Africa run by Christians seeking to help the victims of persecution FROM their own continent ON their own continent. That's much better stewardship of a charity buck than shipping Africans to far-away and hostile Northern climes.

I knew about D3-K2-Calcium and Magnesium all working together, but did not know backache could be a symptom of insufficient mag vs D ratio.

Lower back has been stiff last few days, and possibly not coincidentally, have boosted D recently to fend off some possible crud. Will experiment w bumping up mag for a few days. I do use chelated instead of the cheap stuff.

I've said before that I take a lot of D. I also take quite a bit of magnesium; maybe that's why I'm getting away with taking more than twice what the cautious folks are calling a maximum dose of D.

Even vitamin d levels ranging from 90-120 are fine....at this level, your risk for multiple cancers falls precipitously . The hypothetical increased risk of kidney stones is more than an equitable trade off. Keep what you are doing.

Blogger wgmeisheid February 16, 2021 11:04 AM  

Sorry if someone else did the calculations but this is a miniscule amount of Vitaminme D complared to actual recommended doses.

The patients were given "532 ug on day one and 266 ug on day 3, 7, 15, and 30"
100 micrograms (ug) = 400 IUs
532 micrograms = 2,128 IUs original dose
266 micrograms = 1,064 IUs secondary doses increasing timeframes later.

This is almost nothing yet it reduced death rates by 60% and ICU need by 80%.

Even the NIH recommended 10,000 IUs a day to get the blood serum levels up and then dropping back to 5,000 IUs A DAY! Not the stupid scheduled they used. Given even this amount would have reduced deaths by probably 95+% and ICU to almost ZERO.

The physician I know in GA uses 100,000 IU D3 three times, eight hours apart for 300,000 IU total (about what you would get for two-three full days at the beach) for any type of flu, incuding COVID and it usually completely clears in 24-26 hours with marked improvement in 4-8 hours.

Love to see someone do a real test, but then that would TOTALLY reduce the need for flu/COVID vaccines to ZERO.

Blogger wgmeisheid February 16, 2021 11:12 AM  

Should have included that everyone should be supplementing magnesium, especially the type that passes the blood/brain barrier, magnesium theonate. There are very few people these days who are not magnesium deficient and if you are taking the requisite amount of D3 (I take 10,000 IUs a day and have since 2013) you will not even get the flu and therefore need more magnesium.

I have been seriously exposed to COVID - direct contact for over 6 hours - no precautions (did not know they were active) and did not get it, despite being 73. Added benefit of magnesium theonate - better sleep - better sleep - better joints since most joint repair is done during deep rem sleep when your body freezes your joints so it can do the repair cycle. Magnesium Theonate helps the sleep cycle. Have seen people who began taking it cancel future knee replacements after 2-3 months.
