Raise Your Vitamin D Levels Naturally


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.”
