- This is a personal and not so personal account;
- You need minimum 50 ng/ml by laboratory test;
- We recommend the True Botanica co. Vitamin D Plus
In the course of a general checkup I recently did a blood test on myself. I was more than surprised to find that my Vitamin D 25OH level was only 13.7 ng/ml(!) – with the laboratory range for normal values at 30.0-96.0 ng/ml.
It is probably well known to most how important an abundant supply of vitamin D is. There is essentially no function in the body that is not positively affected by this vitamin (mood improvement, sugar control, bone health, immune support, and more .
Aside from the overwhelming conventional scientific studies this is not surprising also from a spiritual scientific viewpoint since vitamin D is the physical representation of the Light Ether, one of the crucial four ethers of our life body. No wonder that one of the main sources of vitamin D is the effect of sun light on our physiology.
In my case I thought that I had adequate amount of exposure to sun light. I thought that my nutrition contained enough of the vitamin rich foods. And yet still my body demanded more.
How much more of a problem this must be for people who choose to not expose themselves to sun light; who choose to not eat certain foods or do not have the means to do so; or whose life conditions forces them to be physically more in the dark than they would like to be or even whose life’s stresses cause a “darkness” in their soul-ultimately affecting the body.
True Botanica’s Vitamin D Plus ™ supplementation might help!
It contains not only the preferred cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3), 2000 IU/serving, , but also the ingredient dioscorea batatas, a plant root of which Rudolf Steiner explained that it is the only plant that can store Light Ether in its root. Additionally, we have also included in the formula a number of essential trace minerals and Bioperine, a black pepper extract, both of which significantly enhance absorption!
This supplement has helped a lot of our patients (and especially a large number of those who saw no increase in their vitamin D blood level even after taking vitamin D from other commercial suppliers.)
I hope it will help me too.
Incidentally, I insist with my patients, and I recommend to the readers of this email the same, that the minimum laboratory level be 50ng/ml not the accepted 30ng/ml. This level needs to be explained in another place. Occasionally patients will come in with levels that are considerably above the normal range. That is not necessarily advantageous or safe either. The guidance of a doctor is important.
Our colleague Dr. Mark Kamsler, pediatrician in faraway Wisconsin, tells us that he is using the same approx. range for children as for adults (in his case he prefers 50-70 ng/ml. Incidentally, apparently in Wisconsin a considerably large children’s population has levels of 20ng/ml or lower.)
Get yourself tested. Take the supplement if you need to. Let us know how it is working for you?!
