Vitamin D Deficient

Posted in VITAMINS tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 11:12 pm by PCOSLady

PCOS Lady:
I just had my Vitamin D level tested… Good is 50-80 i am at 8.4 low… Not good! A sure indicator i have something eating at it in me… I am sure of “bad”parasites!
~
My primary doctor’s office rep said most all of the patients checked are real low… They have no idea why she added…
~
I copied the whole page…The author is from the UK…

Why Do People Become Vitamin-D Deficient?
On 01.26.13 • In Diet • by Dave Hompes
~
There are actually two forms of vitamin D: vitamin D3 and vitamin D2.
Vitamin D3 is also called cholecalciferol. It is formed in the skin upon exposure to the sun.
~
Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) comes from food and some types of nutritional supplements.
~
Once vitamins D3 and D2 have been formed, they are transported in the blood to the liver where chemical transformation occurs to create a molecule called 25-Hydroxyvitamin-D.
~
This chemical is important as it is the primary form of circulating vitamin D and is one that is most frequently measured in vitamin D Testing, which I’ll teach you about very soon.
~
There is enormous concern over the occurrence of poor vitamin D status and some prominent researchers have identified vitamin D deficiency as pandemic…
~
The consequences of vitamin D deficiency are also of great concern in healthcare. Vitamin D deficiency is associated with:
~
~ Osteoporosis (as vitamin D is needed for proper calcium absorption from the gut)
~ Cancer
~ Autoimmune diseases such as type I diabetes and multiple sclerosis
~ Childhood immune-related illnesses and symptoms, including wheezing (which is extremely common!)
~ Poor ability to fight infection (including H pylori)
~ Mood and energy levels (especially S.A.D syndrome, where folk suffer with depression and low energy in the winter months)
~
How Can You Become Deficient In Vitamin D?
~
Well, there are two obvious reasons why we have such an epidemic of vitamin D deficiency:
~
Lack of Sun Exposure
~
In order for vitamin D3 to be formed in our skin, we must have exposure to UV radiation from the sun!
~
Problem number One is that, at high latitudes, there is not enough sunshine during the year, full stop!
~
Problem number Two is that even in places where there is enough sunshine, we spend too much time indoors (at work, etc).
~
Problem number Three is that even when we do venture outside, we wear clothes and we don’t expose enough skin to the UV rays.
~
Problem number Four is that even when we do get our kit off, we plaster ourselves with large amounts of toxic sunscreen that acts like a thick layer of clothing and prevents the sun’s rays getting through to our skin (largely due to the fact that we are told that the sun is “bad” for us and that exposure causes skin cancer).
~
Vitamin D Deficiency is a Human Behaviour Problem (& One of Profit-Driven Scare-Mongering)
Of course, if you stay out in the midday sun having not had much exposure, you’re going to get burned!
But this is a human behavior problem, not the fault of the sun! The sun drives life on this planet. The notion that it is in some way ‘bad’ for us is ridiculous.
~
It is “spin” that has been driven by profit-seeking companies who want to sell sunscreen. Incidentally, these companies often happen to be the very same ones who recommend drugs like antacids for heartburn, even though heartburn is most often caused by low stomach acid already.
~
Lack of Vitamin D2 In Your Diet
~
Oily fish (wild-caught, not farmed) are good sources of vitamin D2. Eggs can be good sources as long as they are organic. Beef liver is good for D2 as well.
~
The list below is copied from Wikipedia:
Catfish, 85 g (3 oz) provides 425 IU (5 IU/g)
Salmon, cooked, 100 g (3.5 oz) provides 360 IU (3.6 IU/g)
Mackerel, cooked, 100 g (3.5 oz), 345 IU (3.45 IU/g)
Sardines, canned in oil, drained, 50 g (1.75 oz), 250 IU (5 IU/g)
Tuna, canned in oil, 100 g (3.5 oz), 235 IU (2.35 IU/g)
Eel, cooked, 100 g (3.5 oz), 200 IU (2.00 IU/g)
A whole egg provides 20 IU if egg weighs 60 g (0.33 IU/g)
Beef liver, cooked, 100 g (3.5 oz), provides 15 IU (0.15 IU/g)
Fish liver oils, such as cod liver oil, 1 Tbs. (15 ml) provides 1360 IU (90.6 IU/ml)
~
The problem is that many of us simply don’t eat anywhere near enough of these foods to get enough vitamin D2 for our bodies to use.
~
*
The issue can be complicated even further by the fact that so many people have problems with gut function.
Gluten intolerance, processed foods, chronic digestive infections such as H pylori, fungal overgrowth and parasites can all impact our ability to digest and absorb protein-rich and fatty foods.
*
~
Low stomach acid levels (hypochloridia), low levels of pancreatic digestive enzymes and sluggish liver/gallbladder function can all prevent proper absorption of all the fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K, CoQ10).
~
Summary
Vitamin D is such an important vitamin that we simply cannot afford to be deficient! Cancer, autoimmune illness, infections, inflammation, mood and energy levels can all result from lower than optimal levels of this vital nutrient.
~
Lack of sun exposure is a massive problem, even in countries where the sun shines a lot (because most of us work indoors)
~
Lack of dietary intake and poor digestive function also contribute to Vitamin D deficiency.
~
As we’re having an “Indian Summer” here in the UK, I am going out to sunbathe!

Parasites, A Modern Epidemic

PARASITES, A MODERN EPIDEMIC

~
by Garcia Thompson
~
In today’s society there are many forms of disease, many of which are well documented, researched and acknowledged. However, there is one plague currently infecting over 80% of all Americans (and 85% of people around the world) that receives little or no attention in today’s medical society – the one of parasites and parasitic infections. Yes, it is a documented fact that almost every adult in the United States is not only susceptible to, but is also currently hosting some form of internal parasite. Disgusted? Appalled? Disturbed? Sickened? Those words all described how I felt when I first came to read those statistics. You might ask yourself why I would have been reading about this subject (trust me, not something I’d do in my idle time, normally!) However, after a month long bout with debilitating fatigue and chronic gastrointestinal pain, coupled with several unhelpful visits to the doctor, I did a little research into what may be causing my symptoms and creating this discomfort. Here’s the information I found, which hopefully may help anyone out there to overcome, eliminate and defeat these silent attackers.
~
Realize that although you may not feel ill or tired, there may still be parasites within your system. Parasitic infections are masters at hiding while feeding off the human body. So, how can you tell? You can try to take a medical test, but as Dr Andersen (a leading authority on parasitic infections) has said:
~ *** ~
If you were tested by a doctor for parasites, chances are the results would come back negative. Does this mean you do not have parasites? Unfortunately, medical testing procedures only catch about 20% of the actual cases of parasites. Over a 1,000 species of parasites can live in your body and tests are available for approximately 40 to 50 types. This means, doctors are only testing for about 5% of the parasites and missing 80% of those. This brings the clinically found parasites down to 1%. Now, if I had a 1% chance of winning in the stock market, I don’t think I would invest. Only 1% of parasites are ever clinically found.
~
I went through a medical test that cost me $400, was sent to a “top lab” for the detection of parasites, and still was diagnosed as negative (yet after a few cleanses I have been flushing infections, toxins and parasites from my body daily.) So, although there is a chance the lab test will catch the infection, the likelihood is that it won’t. (the major problem is that the parasites must not only be on the “list” the lab looks for, but also must be laying eggs when the samples are taken.)
~ *** ~

This leads me to explain about the way parasites reproduce, live and thrive, as well as to give a brief description of the two major types:
Let’s try to understand what a parasite does. A parasite eats, lays eggs and secretes. Ok? Let’s break this down into the three parts: the first is “eats.” Depending on the kind, parasites will eat different things. Many thrive off certain types of food, from dairy to sugar to proteins. These parasites live off the food that goes into your body. Mainly found in the digestive tract, they can also be found in the liver as well as throughout the body. No organ within your body is immune to parasites, in reality. Some parasites actually get their nutrition directly from the cells of the body, and feed off those cells, thus making you sick. They can literally attach themselves anywhere and suck nutrition out of the cells. These parasites are perhaps the most dangerous because they can travel to places in the body where they can do a lot more damage than a parasite living solely in the digestive tract.
~
Parasites rob you off all your finest nutrients and you get the scraps and leftovers. They grow healthy and fat while your body starves for nutrition. And these visitors can subside and exist in the human body for anywhere in the upwards of 10, 20 or even 30 years.
~
To illustrate the longevity of parasites in the human body, consider this example. In 1979 a British study reported on 600 former prisoners from World War II. These men had been stationed in the Far East. Thirty years after the war, 15% were still infected with a parasite called Strongyloides that they had contracted during the war. This means you could have eaten meat 10 years ago that was contaminated, and still be hosting the tapeworms or other types of parasites that were in that meat.
~
Let’s now look at the way parasites reproduce – this is the “lays eggs” part. To start, let’s examine the two main types of parasites and then discuss how each reproduces: Large parasites are visible and are primarily worms and small parasites, which are mainly microscopic in size, include what are called protozoa and amoebae.
~
Which is more dangerous? Despite their almost invisibility, small parasites can be extremely dangerous. Microscopic parasites can destroy calcium lining in your bones, eat the myecin lining off your nerve cells (causing breakdown of the brain-nerve connection) and even inhabit the liver, colon and other areas causing major discomforts and problems. The small parasites reproduce by duplicating themselves in a manner similar to bacteria or viral reproduction.
~
Large parasites, which are the worm type, can usually be seen by the naked eye. Sizes can exceed 15 inches long and normally these worms cannot/do not travel past the digestive tract. The smaller organisms, the protozoa and amoebas, tend to act like a bacteria by traveling through the blood stream to virtually any part of the body. They reproduce without laying eggs and behave more like an infection in the body than do the larger parasites. The larger parasites are worms which reproduce by laying eggs. Eggs are left in the intestinal tract, where they cling to the intestinal walls among the feces, and when they hatch, the young feed on the food that we eat and eventually grow into adults. The adults then repeat the process.
~
The third thing that parasites do is secrete toxins. Simply put, the secretions from parasites in our bodies are poisons and toxins that our bodies are forced to deal with by increasing the process of detoxification. Anyone who has experienced food poisoning or dysentery will tell you how debilitating these toxins can be. These are intense and very high levels of toxins being released into the body at once. On the other end, a chronic parasitic infection that secretes low levels of toxins can eventually create an extremely stressed immune system. When the immune system is stressed over a long period of time, it weakens. When the immune system “goes off line,” our bodies become susceptible to infections of other kinds. This can be extremely dangerous in this day and age because we are more exposed to more viruses than ever before. Also, the viruses are changing and adapting at a very fast rate as are the bacteria, many of which are now resistant to antibiotics and other artificial measures that are used to combat them.
~
In addition, the antibiotics of today as well as any other drug of tomorrow can have a slightly different than intended effect…again, I will let Dr Andersen explain:
~
Once you have established that you do have parasites, taking drugs to get rid of them may not always work. This is because a drug will often drive a parasite from one organ of the body to another. It’s like people moving to better climates to make their living conditions more pleasant, or birds flying south for the winter.
~
So, if we aren’t able to combat the rising number of parasitic infections with conventional medicine, it is even more important to understand just how we can go about that process. First, let’s look at what parasites do and how we sometimes unknowingly “help” them. Parasites tend to secrete toxins as they live within the human body, which, when coupled with other toxins (like alcohol, cigarettes, junk food, polluted air, etc) can lead to what is termed by many doctors as “toxic overload.” Toxic overload comes about when the four primary cleaning systems of the body have been pushed too far by an overload of toxins in the body.
~
Within the four cleaning systems, the lungs, kidneys, skin and bowels, there are many types of overload that can occur. As an example, toxins will travel from one system to another as the current system gets overloaded. In toxic bowel syndrome, the excess of toxins in the bowels pass onto the liver and the liver becomes over clogged and the toxins begin to spill into the bloodstream. This can take a long time or can occur very quickly, depending on how the body and its immune system handles the overload. Parasites have an ability to cause a complete system breakdown, making them one of the most dangerous epidemics facing medicine today.
~
For the time being, the news isn’t going to get much better, I’m afraid. Not only do 80-85% of all American adults have some form of parasite, not only are they hard to diagnose, not only can they cause serious damage internally (and often silently for a long period of time) they also come in many forms. From here, you can read about the different types of parasites, or you can skip to “How Do We Get Parasites?”

What’s the Big Deal with Egg Yolks Anyway?

~
Egg yolks actually contain all the healthy, fatty acids that are contained within the egg. It is a nucleus of wholesome goodness that supplied our ancestors with their sustenance since before they were upright. When you strip away the egg yolk and eat only the white, you’re completely missing out on the benefits of those fatty acids like the Omega-3 fats.
~
Egg yolks also contain over 80% of the overall vitamins and minerals that can be found within the egg as a whole
. The facts point to the conclusion that the egg should be consumed without division. In the process of eliminating the cholesterol intake by shedding the egg yolks, you’re losing the majority of the vitamins and minerals such as: Iron, Potassium, Folate, Selenium, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin B, Vitamin D, Biotin, and Choline.
~
There is a line dividing many people about whether egg yolks are safe to eat, mainly due to the issues with cholesterol. The fact remains that the bulk of the nutrition in an egg comes from the yolk (including 1/5 of the total protein). Logic would dictate that if you are a person who has an issue with cholesterol, you shouldn’t eat eggs on a constant basis, but when you do you should eat the whole thing.
~
The issue of cholesterol is completely negligible and recent studies such as those performed by the University of Science have proven that other nutrients within the egg yolks can actually help the body manage the cholesterol intake. Vitamin B (particularly Riboflavin) has been known to aid in lowering cholesterol levels and the Lecithin within the egg prevents much of the cholesterol from even being absorbed within your digestive tract. There have also been some preliminary research done into the antioxidant Lutien which may reduce inflammation in the body, which is a much more deadly problem in the heart disease battle.”
