Vitamin D Therapy Has Gone Mainstream
The most exciting development in natural health in the last two decades would have to be the realization that vitamin D has a simply amazing potential to prevent and even cure a very large number of diseases, including the big "C" word: Cancer.
What could be even more amazing than this extremely valuable information coming from mainstream medicine?
Vitamin D Therapy
To document just how conventional vitamin D therapy is today, we are presenting the following 44 minute long video. A video that was produced by the UCSD School of Medicine and GrassrootsHealth with lecturer Robert Heaney, MD, who gives an extremely detailed and authoritative overview of vitamin D deficiency.
A picture is worth a thousand words, but a long video like this one seals our case for just how mainstream and safe supplementing yourself with between 2,600 to 4,000 IU of vitamin D3 a day is. This is the recommended dosage presented throughout this long video by Robert Heaney, MD. Thirty thousand IU was presented as the point at which long term dosing of vitamin D3 has a potential to become toxic. And, that 10,000 IU a day is reported to be the safe upper limit of vitamin D dosing by Doctor Heaney.
Are you Vitamin D Deficient?

25(OH)D, or the 25-hydroxy Vitamin D Blood Test
The blood test that everyone should get in order to determine their own vitamin D serum blood levels is called the 25(OH) D or the 25-hydroxy vitamin D test. The long-term goal should be to maintain your blood levels of vitamin D between 40-60 ng/ml (100-150 nmol/L).
This YouTube video was made at the beginning of 2009. Robert Heaney, MD, was on the panel that originally came up with a 400 IU per day RDA. The video claims that 97% of the information that science currently knows about vitamin D was obtained during the last ten years of health research. Concern about toxicity should begin when your blood reaches the 200 nmol/L level. You would be extremely unlikely to achieve a blood serum range of 180-200 nmol/L. Nor, would you ever want to maintain them at that level per the level of scientific information currently available, according to this video presentation.
