I have to confess that I had no idea just how life changing Vitamin D can be. It can play a role in many illnesses like cancer, mental illnesses, cardiovascular health, bone, chronic pain, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, sinusitis and more. Dr. Khalsa tells the reader how he treats his own patients and gives a lot of practical information like when you make the most vitamin D from the sun according to the place where you live, your age, the color of your skin, the quantities of vitamin D supplements to take in order to optimize health, toxicity, etc.
Interestingly enough he says that at that time (and this book is quite recent), top researchers were trying to have the RDA augmented but.... as I understand it, the RDA for most supplements is going to be reviewed on the down, not up. As far as fortified foods go I think that we have a lot less of that here in Europe which is good. How can you monitor what foods people eat and how much? Better each person who needs a supplement takes it, I think, it is time people were treated as responsible adults again!
There is a very interesting subject in this book, the fact that one day doctors could be sued big time because inexpensive, harmless supplements have been available forever that could cure a lot of ailments, only the authorities in the matter don't quite seem to care.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

There is so much good information contained in this book I would recommend it to anyone. It is clearly written in non-technical language and is carefully and extensively researched. Starting on page 67, Dr. Khalsa's explanation of long-latency vs short-latency deficiency diseases sheds important light in how and why the government recommends an inadequate daily dose of 400 international units. (They were addressing bone disease but were unaware at the time of vitamin D's role in other far more serious diseases that take decades to develop.) There is an excellent description on page 8 on what makes vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) better than D2 (ergocalciferol). On page 140 he points out doctors sometimes mistakenly prescribe the 1,25(OH2)D blood test whereas the only reliable test is the 25(OH)D.
The ultimate message of the book is that we should all be trying to obtain a blood level around 50 mg/mL based on the 25(OH)D blood test, which in most people requires supplementing with 5000 IU of vitamin D3. Semiannual blood test are a good idea to track your progress and insure you don't overdose. If you take away nothing more than this message you and vow to follow through on it, you will be well on your way to better health.
I am giving this book a rating of 5 stars. Dr. Khalsa is to be highly commended for his dedication to the health of his patients and readers of this excellent book. If everyone everywhere became knowledgeable on vitamin D and optimized their blood level, the impact on public health would be extreme. Dr. Khalsa states that widespread vitamin D supplementation has the very real potential of putting a serious dent in the health crisis that costs over $2 trillion per year in the US alone.
The Vitamin D Revolution starts with you, and reading this book and implementing its suggestions will place you squarely at the front lines of this important grassroots movement.
Vitamin K is essential not only for preventing potentially deadly blood clots but also for bone building (including delaying tooth decay) and maintenance. Perhaps most important - K has powerful anti-cancer effects. It is known to be helpful for cardiovascular disease, varicose veins, brain health problems, including dementia and even prevents infectious diseases such as pneumonia. Some claim that most people need daily vitamin D3 of at least 2000 IU with 3000 IU of vitamin A and 100mcg of vitamin K2. The synergy between them is vital as there is evidence that the safety of high dose vitamin D is dependent on vitamin K, and that vitamin D toxicity (although very rare with the D3 form) is actually caused by vitamin K2 deficiency.
Also worth reading: "Primal Panacea" by Thomas E. Levy, explaining that vitamin C is equally important for bones. Vitamin C is also uniquely suited to kill pathogens, neutralise toxins and supercharge the immune system.]
Of the 8 books on vitamin D I've now read, this was my favorite last year. Of the other books, "Vitamin D Prescription" by Eric Madrid is also good. "The Vitamin D Cure" by James Dowd is not basic, comprehensive or practical. Then there is "Vitamin D" by Michael Merrill which was too brief and simply inadequate. At the other extreme is the comprehensive but somewhat technical "Sunshine and Vitamin D" by Frank Murray - mainly brief compilations of hundreds of studies but no practical guidelines, so not really suitable for the layman who wants to experiment with high-dose vitamin D.
Of this year's books so far: "Vitamin D" by Rona and "Power of Vitamin D" by Zaidi are both brief but quite good and the one that is now my favorite pick is "The Vitamin D Solution: A 3-Step Strategy to Cure Our Most Common Health Problem" by Holick. It is a practical and easy read. At 300 pages I also found it thorough. I liked that it straightforwardly explained that sunshine, when it shines strongly enough, is always better than supplementing with Vitamin D.
Going back to this book, Khalsa is both a clinical professor of medicine and a naturopathic doctor. His sincerity and genuine desire to help you shine out. This book is much more simply and clearly set out than most of the pre-2010 books, and includes the differences between the three forms of vitamin D (D3 is the important one), the pros and cons of getting vitamin D from sunshine or tanning beds, which vitamin D test you/your doctor should use (and why), and several careful pages on dosage. The aim was to help you to help yourself, whereas other books are keen for you to consult a doctor. I felt immediately able to apply the information from this book.
It's also worth noting that over a decade ago several books were already lauding the much-overlooked benefits of sunshine, the best way to get vitamin D, although the further away from the equator, the less effective. Anyone living above the 35th parallel is highly likely to have a sunshine/vit D deficiency that can also lead to many common symptoms. Those who react badly to Vitamin D and/or sunshine may have a rare disease called sarcoidosis.)
According to this book, vitamin D can cure 17 types of cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, bone density issues, arthritis, flu, muscle pain, fatigue, chronic pain, seasonal (and other) depression and various autoimmune disorders. Perhaps it's just my cynicism from decades of reading endless books singing the praises of so-called miracles such as DMSO, MMS, DHEA, vitamin C, magnesium, iodine, omega 3 EFAs, breathwork, oxygen therapy, hydrogen peroxide, water, thyroid hormone, adrenal hormone, liver cleanses, detoxes, fasts, exercise, neutralizing electromagnetic stress, juicing, mangosteen, noni juice, superfoods, organic foods, wholefoods, celiac diets, dairy-free diets, veggie diets, protein diets, carb diets, food combining, acid-alkaline balancing diets, Glycemic Index diets, high fiber diets, raw food diets, candida/fungus elimination, parasite cleansing - oh dear, the list of my gullibility seems endless.
Yes, I've tried all of these; yes, thoroughly and sometimes repeating them in various combinations and on each occasion with enthusiasm and bright-eyed hope but I saw no measurable benefits. "Trick and Treat" by Groves explains in detail just why my efforts were doomed. Nowadays, when I read about health wonders, I wonder how many claims of success are made up or at least tweaked - and I wonder what proportion of actual patients were successful in any way, much less miraculously so, as is always claimed by books touting single strategies.
I was startled to learn - from the Holick book - that about a third of the population has kidney disease (which never gets diagnosed until too late), about the same number who are obese (hello... anyone making a connection here?) and that their bodies may not be able to produce enough activated vitamin D. However, the books are not clear enough that the elderly and those with poor health simply cannot produce enough activated vitamin D in their bodies even when taking high-dose vitamin D2 or D3 - this was explained only in the Holick book.
Based on my personal experience of taking 10,000iu daily of vitamin D3 for 6 months (but Rona's book mentions Norm Shealy, a physician who has taken 50,000iu per day for 18 months), I'm not convinced that vitamin D supplementation of the non-prescription kind is a panacea, as so many of the books are claiming - and I am not convinced that all these authors got the unanimously fantastic results they allege. While I believe that vitamin D supplementation at 5,000 ius daily is beneficial, too many single-strategy books have a way of sounding a little overzealous, attributing every malady to whatever deficiency they're tackling and proposing it as the magic solution across the board. Further, not one of these books on vitamin D explains that vitamin D cannot work without magnesium, and that anyone with a chronic health issue is magnesium deficient, as explained in "Treatment Essentials" by Dr Mark Sircus.
LATER NOTES: I eventually was diagnosed, by a metabolic specialist, with serious adrenal fatigue and serious low thyroid issues. The thyroid issue had been getting worse for 2 decades, whilst "standard" medicine denied I had either, repeatedly assuring me all their tests "proved" this. Turns out you have an 80% chance of one or both, if you have a chronic health issue. Visit the Broda Barnes Foundation website for a list of the few thyroid-sympathetic doctors in your state: click on the "educational info" button on the left. It's also worth knowing about "The Calcium Lie II" an intriguing book plausibly claiming to explain the root cause of most illnesses and which shows how taking calcium with vitamin D is actually dangerous and that the increased cancer and medical problems related to "vitamin" D hormone deficiency are more likely related to D hormone suppression from intracellular calcium excess thus leading to adrenal suppression with a resulting increase in illnesses.
He guides the reader step by step in understanding what is known of vitamin D, where it comes from, how to know if you are likely to have a deficiency, how and where to test, how to supplement, diseases that have already been found to have a direct relation to this vitamin, as well as health situations that are not necessarily a "disease" such as chronic fatigue, excess stress, moodiness, etc.
I think that this doctor is way ahead as far as this subject is concerned.
On March 3,2012 I experienced excruciating pain and an ugly rash around the upper part of my body. This condition necessitated a quick trip to a hospital emergency room one evening. The condition was diagnosed as "typical T-4 Shingles," Herpes Zoster, that often occurs as an aftermath of a long-forgotten childhood bout with Chicken Pox!
In that ER, I received prescriptions for an anti-bacterial cleanser for treating the rash, and a strong pain medication, as well as advice that maybe an anti-histamine would be helpful in coping with the painful rash. The pain medication had horrible side effects, and barely diminished the pain of the rash. The anti-histamine just made me sleepy, and did little else. I was reminded of something my mother once said after a long time of coping with various medical treatments:
She said: "Now I understand why doctors call it 'practicing' medicine, because they just keep on practicing, never really getting it just right."
At the end of three months my symptoms had improved only slightly. The rash was healed, but there remained deep pain where the rash had appeared, and there was deep scarring from that rash. I was told by my doctor that I could not receive a vaccination against a future onset of Shingles as long as I experienced any symptoms of this attack. I also learned from my internet search that the pain could last the rest of my lifetime, because I am elderly. Very discouraging.
This information and continued pain caused me to explore the internet for more information. I found information about how to strentthen one's basic immune system, including data on which supplements to include to accomplish this. That is how I found this book, "The Vitamin D Revolution." This information has been most valuable to me in overcoming the Shingles symptoms, and seems to have brought significant improvement in my arthritic feet as well! I now have very little pain. I am so grateful for the information in this book.
This book is well-written, easy to read, and worth the reading time, especially if one needs treatment that is more than just a prescription to alleviate symptoms. The information in this book can actually bring about cures of many of our common ailments. Trust me. I am living proof that it is true, based on good science and great results.
One of the best things about this book is that it was offered as a free download for my Kindle. Thanks, Amazon.
