My family doc nearly refused my request for vitamin D level, she acquiesced and then as my result was 70 ( I’ve been actively working on elevating it) told me to stop supplementation. A “D” level should be routine with every annual physical. But when advised to stop supplementation, by a mask wearing doc ( who should know better) it’s hard to take any of her advice seriously. I need a new doc 🤷‍♀️

If your 25(OH)D level is 70 ng/mL 175 nmol/L then (according to my understanding of all the research - and I am an electronic technician and computer programmer) this is perfectly healthy. I am 70 kg, and take a 1.25mg 50,000 IU capsule once a week. This is 7123 IU plus whatever small amount is in my daily multivitamin. I haven't bothered to get my 25(OH)D level tested. I am sure it is over 50 ng/mL. I guess it is probably below 100 ng/mL, but if it is higher, such as up to 150 ng/mL (very, very, unlikely) this is fine too.

I stopped supplementing calcium. I need to research this more, such as by reading Patrick McCullough MD's article: "Ca:Mg D, the Shield that Interdicts the Crown Viruses and Vaccines": https://www.oalib.com/paper/6781033 .

Yes 70 ng/ml

You are probably using nmol/L units for circulating 25-hydroxvitamin D, which are 2.5 times the ng/mL units.

Your doctor should read the research cited and discussed at:

https://vitamindstopscovid.info/00-evi/ - which begins with Quraishi et al. 2014 https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamasurgery/fullarticle/1782085 who showed weakened innate and adaptive responses to the bacterial pathogens which cause post-operative infections, the more the pre-operative 25-hydroxyvitamin D level was below 50 ng/mL 125 nmol/L (1 part in 20,000,000 by mass).

These Doctors do not 'know better'. My brother is an MD and just follows protocol. Always. They do not do research, because they don't have the time or interest. And giving them data or stats a complete waste of time. They took chem and bio at high school, not math or physics. Their treatments are locked into what they learned at med school many years ago and what the latest pharma brochure tells them. Glorified drug dealers....

My experience is to describe most docs as lemmings. They simply follow an algorithm or protocol. They literally haven’t any curiosity. As an example: I have been advised to take statins for high cholesterol. I have refused - I don’t like the black box warning of cognitive decline, muscle aches, development of diabetes. When I explain finding a meta-analysis of statin use and mortality- statins have been found to result in only a 0.8% increase in mortality. (JAMA)The risks far out weigh this benefit. More importantly not one doctor/cardiologist can tell me why if statins are so great - meaning they have been prescribed to millions over decades- why does heart disease remain the number one killer? Or why half of us who suffer heart attacks have normal cholesterol? They just respond saying that’s their best advice. They are lemmings. They don’t even reflect, scratch their heads. Essentially they could be replaced with a robot, after all they spend most of their time with you typing on the computer rather than listening or examining. The practice of medicine is broken.

Thanks Simon! This page https://vitamindstopscovid.info/00-evi/ cites and discusses the most pertinent research on vitamin D and the immune system.

This includes how much vitamin D3 to take a day, on average (up to 10 days between intakes is OK) according to bodyweight and some health conditions, especially obesity which reduces the ability to raise circulating 25-hydroxyvitamin D for any vitamin D3 intake as a ratio of bodyweight: https://vitamindstopscovid.info/00-evi/index.html#sjw-updated-ratios .

To raise the circulating 25-hydroxyvitamin D level safely over 50 ng/mL 125 nmol/L in clinical emergencies such as COVID-19, sepsis, Kawasaki disease, MIS-C, severe influenza - or any acute illness - a single oral dose of 1mg calcefediol (which _is_ 25-hydroxyvitamin D) for 70 kg bodyweight will do this in 4 hours. Bolus 10m 400,000 IU vitamin D3 takes about 4 days due to the need for hydroxylation in the liver. Ordinary healthy intakes such as 0.125 mg 5000 IU vitamin D3 a day take months to raise the 25-hydroxyvitamin D from typical unsupplemented levels of 5 to 25 ng/mL to 50 ng/mL. See: Professor Sunil Wimalawansa's recent article in Nutrients: https://www.mdpi.com/2072-6643/14/14/2997, https://nutritionmatters.substack.com/p/calcifediol-25-hydroxyvitamin-d-or and https://vitamindstopscovid.info/04-calcifediol/ .

Nothing is more important than raising your circulating 25-hydroxvyvitamin D level to 50 ng/mL 125 nmol/L, which is what the immune system needs to work properly, including reducing the risk of excessive inflammation.

See: https://vitamindstopscovid.info/06-adv/ on the Coimbra protocol (higher vitamin D3 intakes) to suppress the excessive inflammation which causes auto-immune disorders such as psoriasis, MS and rheumatoid arthritis. This excessively strong immune response evolved in our ancestors to counter the inflammation down-modulating compounds emitted by helminths (intestinal worms), which infected most or all of our ancestors all the time. Now we are dewormed, our inflammatory responses are often too strong. Helminthic therapy involves deliberately being infected with intestinal worms to suppress these inflammatory diseases: https://helminthictherapywiki.org/

The vitamin D people know nothing about helminths and the helminthic people do not seem to think about vitamin D.

If most or all people had 50 ng/mL or more circulating vitamin D3 humanity's burden of ill-health would be, very approximately, halved. There would only be occasional influenza and COVID-19 infections. There would be no pandemic spread, and those infected would rarely develop severe symptoms.

No worries, Pfizer has a solution to all these diseases... FDA approved.

The greatest pandemic is for sure Type II diabetes, the virus is the processed food industry.

I agree. I wrote an article about diabetes recently and how governmental food guides are steering us down a dangerous path.


Expand full comment

I wrote similar for Public Health England, highlighting their dietary advice for Type II diabetics was diametrically opposed to what actually works (the advise starchy carbohydrates!)

A 16 page report including and most importantly, a shopping list of low glycemic index, anti-inflammatory wholefoods as a prescription to give diabetics. If it isn't on the list, it doesn't go in the basket.

With MCT oil based keto, transitioning to LCHF, I brought a late stage Type II diabetes patient's hba1c, that hadn't been below 100mmol/mol in over a decade, from 106mmol/mol to 45mmol/mol in one month whilst at the same time stopping daily insulin injections and Metformin the week the keto regimen began.

Health authorities simply don’t care. They haven’t the intellect or courage to challenge their own belief systems.

In our case, it’s easier to walk around the boulder than it is to move it.

I suspect it's deliberate. No diabetes means no Metformin, Gliclazide and Insulin sales. Nurses who specialise in diabetes know it's easy to fix with a low carb diet, but they're not allowed to push keto or LCHF on patients.

For a disease that costs the UK tens of billions of Pounds in lost productivity, health care and welfare costs, you'd think it would be a priority.

Whole place is crooked.

It does amaze me that the governmental response is universal. They’re all falling over each other pushing a high carb diet.

Can I ask, do you personally eat LFHC? Or do you just recommend it for metabolically unhealthy patients?

I was the patient.

I mean HFLC sorry.

A small contribution is this.

Quit the exercise quest if you’re not already into it.

Everyone gets hyped up to “get in shape” then they join a gym, then quit after a week.

Because exercise sucks. It’s not fun… and you’re alone.

Find an activity that fits your fitness capabilities, fits your interests, one that includes people. Join a new tribe.

My tribe was joining Brazilian Jujitsu, which gave me a dozen new friends, who then introduced me to boxing, then rock climbing, and fishing.

Before I knew it, my life outside of work became BJJ, boxing, rock climbing, and fishing, which led to kayaking.

Finding your tribe is the game changer.

Well of course "COVID" is mostly the "Flu" - originally in sick and old people. They rebadged it to get their numbers up. You got to give it too them - they claim a new sickness - no distinguishing diagnosis - so they package up all the normal maladies and name it "COVID". It's like "Climate Change" - take something everyone knows and commandeer it for your One World asperations - ingenious! Of course there is no such thing as a "virus" - that once again is the same pattern playing out. WHat we have now is a true "Pandemic of the Injected". I agree on VitD of course - I try and get 30 minutes sun a day - not easy as they are "greying" the sky currently here is AUST.

I could remember in the early days everyone and the MSM was calling the disease "CoViD 19" from the SARS-CoV2. Then the fear porn wasn't working enough by them, so they ramped it up a few weeks later, in part, by switching the name from CoViD 19 to "CoViD."

CoViD is the generalisation for just Corona Virus Disease.This was to scare people on anything Corona Virus related whether it was just the Corona Virus responsible for the Common Cold, CoViD 19(SARS-CoV2), or any other kind.

Now we see that after the "CoViD" narrative mindcontrol stuck in much of the general population, we also see most of the Conservative Media followed lockstep by the influence of the MSM Syndrome. Many doctors and nurses which should know better are doing it, too.

People it is NOT CoViD that came out of the 2019 "pandemic" (aka, Plandemic), but is CoviD 19 as per the SARS-CoV2. There is a huge distinction, and we need people to know this, so that they're not in fear of everything corona virus related; they're not all the same!

The public needs to know the correct label, just as if you were writing an itemised bill, or a science article, or an announcement to the public.

Main point: This is not a true vaccine

Dr Martin | The CoViD 19 (modified) mRNA Gene-Code(Editing) Serum is an inoculum, NOT A VACCINE. I refer to it as an mRNA injection.
