How to Raise Vitamin D Levels Naturally
Many people are deficient in Vitamin D and don’t realize that it can cause health issues. Vitamin D deficiency is associated with many diseases; including Cancer, osteoporosis, diabetes, infertility, Multiple Sclerosis, Heart Disease, high blood pressure, depression, memory lapses, and Inflammatory bowel disease, to name a few.
Back when I had Cancer, I had my vitamin D levels tested and I was at a 27, which is low. I just got my results back from my doctor and my Vitamin D level is now at 41. As you can see from the chart above; an optimal level of Vitamin D is between 50-70, so I am still on the low side but improving.
How did I raise my vitamin D levels? I lay out in the sun on a regular basis, without sunscreen. I am not talking about laying out in the sun for hours until you are burnt to a crisp, but even 15 minutes of sunlight per day can help to increase the vitamin D levels within your body. I would lay out for 15 minutes on each side of my body and gradually increase it daily, that way I don’t get burned. If you do get sunburned, virgin coconut oil slathered on the burned areas (all throughout the day) will turn the burn into a tan and you will not peel.
But, you don’t need to lay out in the sun to increase your vitamin D level, as long as you are getting sunlight daily, it all helps. But what about those who live in colder climates where the sun doesn’t always shine? There are vitamin D supplements that can also help to raise your level. You want to make sure that you are getting vitamin D3 and not the inferior version of vitamin D; known as vitamin D2.
Make sure to talk to your doctor and get your vitamin D level tested to find out where you are. “You Can Achieve Optimum Health Through God’s Pharmacy.”
