6:05 How to prevent high calcium levels in the blood

In this video, we’re going to talk about the critical roles of vitamin D and parathyroid hormone in helping to prevent autoimmune diseases. Many people with an autoimmune disease have had success with the Coimbra protocol, which involves taking high doses of vitamin D.

The Coimbra protocol checks parathyroid hormone levels produced by the parathyroid gland, which is intimately involved in calcium regulation. If you have low calcium, the parathyroid gland pulls calcium from your bones and distributes it into the blood. Vitamin D helps with the absorption of calcium by a factor of 20x!

Vitamin D resistance occurs when the body does not absorb vitamin D. You can have normal vitamin D levels in the blood yet still be deficient in vitamin D. Parathyroid hormone levels can tell you if that's happening.

If you are not getting enough vitamin D, you will have trouble with calcium absorption. The parathyroid gland will have to overcompensate to combat vitamin D resistance.

Usually, if you have high vitamin D, you’ll have low parathyroid hormone levels. Low vitamin D and high parathyroid hormone levels can signify vitamin D resistance.

If you have vitamin D resistance, the solution is to take more vitamin D! The Coimbra protocol involves adjusting vitamin D until the parathyroid hormone lowers to a low to normal level.

Vitamin D resistance is typically caused by a problem with vitamin D receptors or a genetic issue known as polymorphism.

Other barriers to vitamin D absorption include:
• Low sun exposure
• Darker skin complexions
• Old age
• High stress
• Location
• Air pollution

Pathogens have strategic methods of downgrading vitamin D receptors. Pathogens from tick bites can downgrade your receptors by a factor of 60x!

Cancer cells, especially those affecting the colon and bones, downgrade vitamin D receptors to survive. Heavy metals can also downgrade vitamin D receptors.

Magnesium and zinc can protect against high calcium levels in the blood, but your best defense is vitamin K2.

Low-Dose Naltrexone and autoimmune

Low-dose naltrexone Wikipedia

  • " off-label use of the medication naltrexone at low doses for diseases such as Crohn's disease and multiple sclerosis"
  • "Naltrexone is an opioid receptor antagonist, meaning it binds to opioid receptors in cells"
  • "Low-dose naltrexone refers to doses at about 1/10th the size of the dose used normally."
  • "One hypothesis behind low-dose naltrexone's mechanism of action is that inhibiting opioid receptors at low doses might cause the body to increase production of endorphins and upregulate the immune system."

  • "LDN can act as an immunomodulator in multiple autoimmune diseases and malignant tumors as well as alleviate the symptoms of some mental disorders. The results of increasing studies indicate that LDN exerts its immunoregulatory activity by binding to opioid receptors in or on immune cells and tumor cells."    doi: 10.1016/j.intimp.2018.05.020
