For most of my life I have been very interested in health, and have taken many supplements daily.
For decades I have enjoyed helping people by providing them with access to information.
Now I can combine those two portions of my life and can say that
if you take only a single supplement it should be vitamin D
Vitamin D will improve your health immediately.
Vitamin D helps health in both the near-term (treatment) and the long-term (prevention).
With the vitamin D my previous medical problems of growing pains, sore tibia, sunburning, etc have gone away
I emailed the following to a friend on our shared 66th birthday, March 2012
Ah, I am 66 years old now but feel like I am in my early 50's (taking 12,000 IU vitamin D daily in the winter)
Lots of vitamin D in the past 2 years
All aches and pains are gone.
My psoriasis on my knee is treated with topical vitamin D (several times a month)
My feet no longer develop cracked skin
Essential tremor in my hands is totally gone
My neck is no longer sore (a stiff pillow helped)
My back is no longer sore (Magnesium also helped)
My brain is back (able to think and remember much better - Posit Science helped)
It is a great decade
As I said to the person who got me interested in vitamin D: You have really made my decade (not just my day)
My wife feels 10 years younger too (she is taking 10,000 IU Vitamin D daily)
Not everything has reset back to my 50's
Less hair ( but have had great success by vibrating my scalp daily),
no longer jogging in my 70's (but still bicycling)
Some of the reason for the better brain may be due to my use of Brain Plasticity Software (Posit Science)
Update March 2014 (My 68th birthday)
Other than vitamin D. I bike about 3 tiimes per week (often on a tandem with my wife Judy)
I try to never post information based on a single study, and try to integrate the information
I treat something as a Fact: if there are 3 studies agree and none disagree
I treat something as a Hint if there are 3 studies which agree and 1 disagrees
I treat something as Controversial if 3 studies agree and 2 disagree
My long-term goal: get the world to benefit from Vitamin D
I currently read the titles of about 100 studies daily, read the abstracts of 20,
I make new pages with the abstracts/PDF of about 3
I add the information of another 3 to existing pages
While an additional 3 items end up in my backlog - which I rarely have time to get back to.
I am able to see behind the publishers pay-walls (purchased life-long library privileges from my University) but am not allowed to post the information on the web.
Trees found to increase healthy (get outdoors more)
Neighborhoods with more trees are healthier (vitamin D not mentioned) – July 2015
