Normal, natural, optimum vitamin D levels

Toxic effect over 300 ng/ml
Risk of excessively high calcium over 150 ng/ml
Recommended upper limit in the blood 100 ng/ml
Level with regular sunbathing 50 to 90 ng/ml
Optimal (minimum risk of illness) 50 to 90 ng/ml
Good (low susceptibility to illness) over 40 ng/ml
Satisfactory (good calcium intake) over 30 ng/ml
Deficiency (risk of osteoporosis in old age) under 30 ng/ml

The standard baby doses of 400 or 800 units will do nothing.
This dose for infants with a body weight of three kilograms was purely aimed at preventing rickets.
Adults' requirements are much greater.

Formulae for calculating doses for the initial and ongoing treatment.
The incremental factor and loss rate are average values, and vary in individual cases.
Short formula for initial treatment (capsules with 5,000 units):
Number of capsules = Desired increase x body weight x 0.028
Example: 40 ng/ml x 100 kg x 0.028 = 112 capsules initially
Short formula for maintenance treatment (capsules per month):
Number of capsules = Target value x body weight [kg] x 0.0056
Example: 50 ng/mlx 68 kgx 0.0056 = 19 capsules

In Germany, all pre-formed vitamin D medications containing more than 1,000 units require a prescription.
But this is a mistaken preventive measure.
French pharmacies have for years been selling drinkable 200,000-unit ampoules on prescription for less than 2 Euros without any problems.

The MANOS concept (Muscles , Adynamia, Nervous system , Orthostasis , Skeletal damage) covers the main symptoms of acute vitamin D deficiency .
  Note: Adynamic disorders : Debility , listlessness, lack of energy , permanent exhaustion and constant fatigue.

He was a doctor for 20 years, then discovered Vitamin D

He comments in the introduction that animals get much higher vitamin D supplementation than Germans
(VitaminDWiki notes that vets around the world give animals a good level of vitamin D because vets are typically paid to keep their patients healthy, vs doctors are typically only paid when the patient is not healthy) see Overview Veterinary and vitamin D

Hippocrates himself recommended daily sun bathing.
