Must avoid giving Folic acid to pregnant women (Folate is OK)

Strong indications that Folic Acid is increasing Autism rate

2X to 6X more Vitamin D is needed if poor gene

Vitamin D Metabolism

Vitamin B2


PTH is a good indicator of how much more Vitamin D will be needed

Feedbacks between liver, kidney, PTH, and microphage limit toxicity problems

Protocol essentially consists of:

  1. High Vitamin D
    (and Vitamin B2 and Magnesium)
  2. Low Calcium
  3. 2.5 liters of water

Comments to VitaminDWiki by a member of the audience: Barbara M van Amerongen

Coimbra thinks autism is caused by synthetic methylfolate made by pharma.

There were at least 400 people present, mostly German doctors. The type that desperately want to cure patients (with food and supplements).
They almost gave Coimbra a standing ovation. Hij spoke on Friday and on Saturday.

The Program on Friday 13 April: International Workshop Vitamin D Sensitivity and High Dose Vitamin D Therapy included a Discussion and possible next steps between a panel (among which the 3 speakers Holick, Carlberg and Coimbra and a few others) and the chairman Prof. Spitz. (This was about the Coimbra Protocol.)

At the end when the time was up the audience was allowed to make remarks.

I think Vitamin D3 / the Coimbra Protocol is going to go viral in Germany.

Overview MS and vitamin D contains the following summary

Clinical interventions have shown that Vitamin D can prevent, treat, and even cure Multiple Sclerosis, at a tiny fraction of the cost of the drugs now used to treat it, and without side effects.

Summary: lack of consensus on how much to prevent, treat, or cure MS.

Multiple Sclerosis and (lots of) Vitamin D - book by patient on Coimbra protocol - Feb 2016 contains protocol description

Snips as of April 2016 http://www.vitamindprotocol.com/dr.-coimbra-s-ms-protocol.html

  • 1,000 IU's vitamin D per kilogram as a first approximation
    (apparently increased/decreased depending of resulting vitamin D blood level)
  • Vitamin B2, magnesium glycinate, boron, chromium picolinate, Omega 3 DHA, Zinc, Methylcobalamin form of B12, Choline, etc.
  • Lack of B12 may affect 10%–15% of the general population and may be the most prevalent genetic risk factor for several human diseases
  • Discontinue eating or drinking dairy products or calcium enriched foods or beverages, also no Ca supplements
  • Drink as least 2.5 liters [85 ounces] of fluids, preferably water
  • Required Tests:​ Vitamin D, Parathyroid, Blood calcium, urinary calcium
