Spinal bone spurs (osteophytes) formation is the natural response of the body to save the spine. WfLC understands that the body has the innate intelligence to heal and develop from inside out.
Every function of the body is under total control of the nervous system with the spine protecting the spinal cord and nerves. We restore optimal alignment in the spineso that the nerve flow is not interrupted by any spinal issues. Chiropractic is known to be effective for the relief of these common health problems, particularly if they are related to the spine and nerves. If you have chronic health problems and are prone to seasonal illnesses, your vitamin D levels may be too low.
Contrary to popular belief, sun exposure does not provide sufficient Vit D production for many people.
It’s important to be tested to determine a baseline in the event of subsequent symptoms and illness. As with all supplements, only take supplements that have been USP certified, which means the purity and amount has been certified.
PLEASE be aware that Vitamin D is not water soluble, which means more is not necessarily better. Good Advice there Sheila, My level was very low when I was Diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer. I was diagnosed with Vit D deficiency for a few years before developing osteoporosis and arthritis.
My health drastically improved since I’ve kept my Vitamin D level in the 70-90 range. I suspected a deficiency and requested a Vit D check along with my annual checkup and blood panel.
If you want an isotonic form of Vitamin D that is effective (it’s like getting it in an IV), please let me know.
Take a good probiotic — either a great quality yogurt with billions of active yogurt cultures or Culturelle (Health and Wellness version preferred, without the inulin in the other versions).
Probiotics are a definite, but recent studies have shown that there aren’t enough probiotics in yogurt.
Vitamins and Supplements are great, getting those specific Vitamins and Supplements naturally is the best way to get them in your system, fruits, vegetables, the sun, etc. Medical Ailment Cartoons and ComicsMedical Ailment cartoon 1 of 7Dislike this cartoon?'I can't come to work today.
Restore Your Health by Resetting Your Body TemperatureA low body temperature is a very reliable indicator of poor health that can often be corrected with restorative medical techniques. Your doctor wants to give you antidepressants because he doesn't believe your symptoms are real.
You're suffering from a number of disturbing and baffling symptoms, and your doctor says there's nothing wrong with you and that there's nothing that can be done to help you.
You might be wondering about your own sanity, or if everyone with your age and circumstances feels the way that you do. A Normal Temperature Is Critical for Good HealthBody temperature is the foundation of good health. This symptom can explain many health problems, such as: fatigue, headaches, migraines, PMS, easy weight gain, depression, irritability, fluid retention, anxiety and panic attacks, hair loss, poor memory, poor concentration, low sex drive, unhealthy nails, dry skin and hair, cold intolerance, heat intolerance, low motivation, low ambition, insomnia, allergies, acne, carpal tunnel syndrome, asthma, odd swallowing sensations, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, muscle and joint aches, slow healing, sweating abnormalities, Raynaud's Phenomenon, itchiness, irregular periods, easy bruising, ringing of the ears, flushing, bad breath, dry eyes, blurred vision, and more. All of our bodily functions are the result of chemical reactions that are catalyzed by enzymes. Wilson's Temperature Syndrome is a term used to describe a chronically low body temperature, which is often the result of people becoming physically or emotionally overwhelmed. Though your body temperature should recover once the stress is over, sometimes it doesn't (a condition known as Wilson's Temperature Syndrome, or WTS).
When their temperatures normalize, most people get their lives back and it's as if there was never anything wrong.
Many doctors will say, "You're just getting older," or, "You're just not getting enough sleep or exercise," or, "You're just under stress." This is compounded by the fact that thyroid blood tests are often completely normal. How Can You Recover From WTS?If left untreated, Wilson's Temperature Syndrome can sometimes correct itself over a period of months to years though it often persists and even worsens. More severe cases of Wilson's Syndrome may require a supplement called the WT3 protocol to bring the temperature up and correct the symptoms. Medical Treatment for WTSa€”The WT3 ProtocolWTS appears to be due to a bogging down of the thyroid system due to impaired T4 to T3 conversion. Wilson's T3 protocol is aimed at depleting RT3 levels in the tissues of the body, for a time. When patients are given pure T3 directly, their bodies sense that they are getting enough thyroid stimulation so they reduce their own production of thyroid hormones. The purpose of the treatment is not so much to give patients' thyroid glands a rest (although that does happen), as it is to clear RT3 (by clearing T4) out of the tissues so that their thyroid systems can get de-bogged, cleaned out, and reset. Fortunately, if the T3 therapy is given properly, patients can often feel terrifically well even while their thyroid systems are on the way to recovery! The keys to the WT3 protocol are making sure you're taking the correct kind of thyroid medication properly so you can re-achieve a normal body temperature with minimal side effects.
Like any medication, if Wilson's Temperature Treatment is not done properly patients can waste a lot of time and money (on visits and medicine) without even knowing it. A lot of mistakes, frustration, guesswork, worrying and perhaps even severe side effects can usually be easily avoided with good information. Herbal Solutions to Wilson's Temperature SyndromeWTSmed Supplements are an assortment of supplements designed to support optimal good health.
Many compounds within a given plant can work together to help restore certain organ functions. Restoring health often requires a particular combination of herbs taken in different quantities at the same time. Different organ systems (circulatory system, respiratory system, digestive system) carry out different body functions, and different herbs can help different organ systems. Unlike drugs that are typically aimed at single symptoms (anti-anxiety, anti-inflammatory, anti-diarrhea, etc.), herbs tend to restore specific organs or organ systems. The healing powers are actually in the plants themselves and the secrets are knowing which plants to use together. JustWondrin 7 years ago My doctor has diagnosed me with Wilson's Temperature Syndrome.

I am a New Zealand registered nurse and nutritionist (Grad Cert Sci: nutrition, Massey Univ).
Firstly no serious scientist would refute that humans evolved as omnivores, and that an omnivorous diet is the best diet for us to thrive. In the short term however some people appear to benefit from a change to a raw vegan diet, however long term, health problems from dietary deficiencies and imbalances inevitably catch up with people.
But somewhere down the line—months for some people, years for others—the wonder starts to wane. In other words, you start seeing raw foods’ freaky nose hairs and you begin to wonder: what did I get myself into? 2. a foray into other dietary regimens, such as paleo, low-carb, cooked vegan, macrobiotic, or ayurvedic.
Contrary to what the testimonial section in books and websites may indicate, raw doesn’t always end with Happily Ever After. I would skip school a lot, because just the thought of getting out of bed made me anxious some days. I also adjusted my diet to add more cooked foods to see if that would change the way I felt as well. What it always came back to, even when faced with all these considerations, was that I wasn’t feeling great and my blood tests reflected it.
The results explained perfectly why I had been feeling weak and exhausted for more than 6 months. One morning over breakfast, Holly Paige looked at her daughter and realised things weren’t right. What are the most commonly reported symptoms from long-term vegans and raw foodists who have been forced to add some animal fat and protein back into their diets to regain or maintain superior health, energy, and well-being? Mr Norris writes about his own experience on a raw vegan diet that led him to write an article dispelling the myths of the dangers of cooked vegan foods. The experience turned me to science, relying more on published scientific research and much less on popular theories and anecdotal reports. Before I look at typical nutrient deficiencies, I’m curious as to why at first many people feel so great initially on a raw vegan diet? Another reason for some short term improvements could be the switch from a high protein to a low protein diet which starts a process called autophagy. As an aside for those paleo folks who constantly eat a high protein diet: cycling protein and having protein fasts to induce autophagy may well be beneficial.
There are a number of nutrient deficiencies and imbalances in raw vegan and vegan diets, that eventually cause a number of health problems, which may not appear until months or occasionally years on the diet. Chris Masterjohn has written an excellent article on this subject, which draws from numerous clinical studies.Vegetarianism and nutrient deficiencies This article discusses the nutrients that are deficient, their functions and their sources. A thorough outline of vegan diet nutrient deficiencies comes from vegan Registered Dietitian Jack Norris, President of Vegan Outreach who maintains an informative website Vegan Health. As the consumption of raw foods gains popularity, some potentially unsafe foods have reentered the diets of humans. Beyond Vegetarianism, Site by Tom Billings (long time friend of Jack Norris) contains reports from veterans of vegetarian and raw-food diets, veganism, fruitarianism, and instinctive eating, plus new science from paleolithic diet research and clinical nutrition.

An Asian study of kids supplementing 1,200 units daily during winter lessened their risk of the flu by around 40 percent.
As well, as well the reference made to D2, which is the patented version of vitaminD because the more tolerated and absorbable and natural form D3 cannot be patented. And yes, I get it checked at least annually and my doctor is happy with the improvements in my health. As someone who is personally deficient in Vitamin D, my doctor prescribes 50,000 Units per week and rechecks levels in 6-8 weeks. Someone also recommended the vitamin D emulsion for me to take,but I wanted to know if u had any side effects when u took this? I taught several times a year medication passing for non medical personal as well as state besting for NA”s. Learn here about a special thyroid treatment that many doctors are using to reset patients' body temperatures. You know something is wrong with your health, and that you need to fix it so you can live a normal life.
Like a fever, a low body temperature is a strong indicator that there is something wrong, but it can be fixed.
Without proper enzyme function, the chemical reactions will either take place too sluggishly, or not at all.
In fact, many people are mad that they were suffering needlessly (and lost so much of their lives) when the solution was so simple. WTS is five times more common in women, and it is more common in patients whose ancestors survived famine, such as those with Irish, American Indian, Scot, Welsh, Russian, and Polish backgrounds. Since people suffering from Wilson's Temperature Syndrome (WTS) have normal thyroid blood tests, it's common for it to go undiagnosed. Anything that can enhance patients' physical or emotional well-being has a chance of turning their WTS around. This bogging down of the thyroid system appears to be perpetuated by RT3 in the tissues, as well as perhaps other factors.
This appears to be what enables the patients' thyroid systems to function well on their own again. The T3 is usually found in capsules that are designed to be taken twice a day, every 12 hours. The term Wilson's T3 protocol or WT3 protocol is used to distinguish it from other ways doctors give T3 medicine. Wilson began emphasizing the importance of T3 medicine over T4, many doctors have started using T3 medicine. They are made up of natural substances such as herbs, vitamins, and minerals, and many are available without a prescription.
WTSmed Supplements have been formulated in such a way that each bottle could be considered a complete herbal kit unto itself (many WTSmed Supplements contain a combination of 5 or more herbs). In other words, the functions of the body are organized by organ systems, and the herbs that benefit the functions of the body also seem to be organized by organ system (not just symptom). If your body is lacking something it needs to recover then it makes sense that it would come from plants because all your food comes directly or indirectly from plants.
I am going to look into this more as I bet some people with anxiety might have this as well.
I am a Certified Zone Instructor, and have worked teaching Zone diet principles to hundreds of clients over the last 10 years. As I wrote in the analysis, because one person is able to do this – it does not make it a diet that I would recommend. I see no evidence that making a permanent switch from an omnivorous to a vegan diet would improve the health of any client. Intermittent fatigue, dental woes, hair loss, concentration problems, and some not-so-happy blood test results forced me to rethink the dietary regimen I was so tightly clutching. What worked in the beginning may not work forever, and sometimes you need to tweak things to regain a sense of vitality and health. Speaking of the bed, I also had some difficulty sleeping once in a while around my second year of LFRV. My teeth started getting incredibly sensitive, and there were clear signs of heavy acid erosion.
I actually asked her to show me the blood test results because I thought there had to be some sort of mistake.
Whereas I had previously lived for working out and even an hour on the elliptical wasn’t enough for me, lately doing more than 20 minutes at a leisurely pace caused me to yearn to spend the rest of the day in bed recuperating. I had low body fat to begin with, and on the raw foods diet my weight dropped from 138 to 128 lbs. With respect to gluten alone 30% of the population has a gene that makes them sensitive to it and just cutting this one food item could account for many of the health improvements. A committed vegan, he dispels myths surrounding vegan diets, and provides practical information on deficiencies and supplements required to remain healthy on a vegan diet.
However, the following list includes many foods which are rarely promoted by the educated proponents of raw foodism, especially beans or legumes.
The chemical component fagopyrin is known to cause severe photosensitivity and other dermatological complaints. Other parasites and viruses may also be present, such as Toxoplasma, Trichinella, or rotavirus, which may cause serious foodborne illnesses. It is a diet that has multiple nutrient deficiencies, that can only be sorted out with supplements.
Let them eat meat – but farm it properly, The ethical case against eating animal produce once seemed clear.
I remember a flatmate (room-mate) years ago did a fast for 40 days – just vegetable broths, fresh juices and psyllium hulls (crazy gal) and she was simply buzzing from that high.
Actually, recent research indicates that vitamin D plays a much bigger role in fighting disease than once thought.
Vitamin D3 (OTC) is superior because it is non-toxic, stays in the body for up to 10 weeks, so taking 50,000 IU once a week is safe. There are many people in the medical field who are shills for the pharmaceutical companies and the so-called healthcare business. I found a protocol on the internet, and I took 10,000 units a day for 10 days, to bring it up quickly, and cut back to 5000 a day in the dark winter months, and 2000 units a day in the summer, when I am outside a lot. My level is really low (15) and I have be prescribed to take the 50,000 mg but every time I take a vitamin D supplement it makes me sick and dizzy..just wondering if this would help?? You MUST check how many different probiotics are in the supplement, 7 different probiotics is good, but 10 or more is better. Again, consult your doctors before taking anything over the counter, along with potentially harmful medication reactions, you can overdose on Vitamins and Supplements, maybe not very horrible, but if, for instance, you take too much Calcium, it can cause Kidney Stones… all I have to say to that is OUCH! The function of every enzyme depends on its shape for its activity, and its shape depends on its temperature. The problem can be so severe that the body cannot adapt under the current circumstances and recover a normal temperature. Once the system is bogged down, it appears that backlogged raw thyroid hormone (T4) can also adversely compete with the active thyroid hormone (T3). Wilson's T3 therapy does not need to be taken for life, but only for a few weeks or months.
However, achieving the benefits of T3 therapy is not just a matter of taking the substance, but of taking it properly.
As someone who has been tested for hypothyrodism over and over because of the same symptoms, I am glad to see someone is making this problem public.
More recently after finding that eating Paleo food choices was the "icing on the cake" health wise, I have become a Paleo enthusiast and teacher. I believe only the extremely high calorie intake has allowed him to get adequate nutrients, added to this some genetic luck.
During this time, I started scouting out the counsel and wisdom of other disgruntled rawbies.
Anything would get to me, and I had to learn about self-mastery and breathing techniques and all that shit. Not only was my sleep too light, I also had difficulty falling asleep, since I had to shift my legs all the time. I thought the tips of my teeth were always this transparent and that the darkened spots near my gum line were just stains from all the colorful food I was eating. But there was no mistake, it was right there in black and white; deficiencies and abnormalities across the board. When I could I slept till noon, I felt lightheaded when I stood up, I couldn’t remember simple words or the names of my friends, and I was freezing cold even in the midst of a sweltering Saudi summer.
Instead, her cheeks were pinched, she was small for her age, and although she had skinny arms and legs, her belly was big and swollen. They contained story after story of people curing their heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and other diseases through raw foods. These health improvements are also similar to those that people rave about when they switch to a conventional paleo diet, that also removes grains, legumes, dairy, processed foods, and high omega 6 vegetable oils and sugar.
They depend on chronic illnesses for their continuous cash influx and don’t give a rats a$$ about people being healed or cured. Even though T4 is the source of T3, if it's not being converted well it can actually be a significant hindrance! A loose observation is that all those who are able to stay on this type of diet do a large amount of endurance exercise.
It’s funny, because I was saying I was eating a raw vegan diet because it was “natural”, but here I was depending upon all these “unnatural” techniques. I would later learn that this is a medical condition called Restless Legs Syndrome, a neurological problem. My gums started to recede, I broke a molar by biting a tiny piece of a hazelnut shell by mistake, and a few months later my dentist would find six cavities in my raw vegan mouth.
Of the myriad symptoms I’ve listed here and the ones I will not be describing publicly, the absolute worst of all was my depression.
A walk on a sunny day, sun on uncovered unblocked skin produces 10s of thousands of iu’s of vitamin D and no one is ODing.
Someone also said above about hearing you need magnesium to help with the absorption of vitamin D, I’m not sure about that but I do know for a fact that if you are taking calcium, you NEED to take magnesium sulfate with it. To get where you want to go, it's not just a matter of getting in the car and driving, but you must make the correct turns, at the correct times, and under the correct circumstances. This uses a large amount of carbohydrate for fuel, maximises insulin sensitivity in the muscles and thus enables the high carbohydrate intake. I became addicted to my mp3 player, because I just didn’t have the zest to go through the day without some stimulating rhythm. I told her what I did, and she said they were looking into vitamin D for a lot of various ailments. Maybe those niggly health problems you had prior to raw—aches and pains, lethargy, allergies, arthritis, skin conditions—start resurfacing out of nowhere.
Personally I start taking 10,000 iu’s of Vitamin D3 October 1st and continue till March 1st due to my northern lattitude home with much less sun than most of the US and generally 5,000 the rest of the year plus sunshine when possible.
They have Calcium with Magnesium Sulfate supplements all together in one pill as well, this will save you from purchasing 2 different supplements. Whatever the reason, raw just doesn’t seem to be working as well as it did in the beginning. But, like I said, I didn’t acknowledge this as a problem with me, I just thought today’s world was too harsh. For years I suffered from seasonal affective disorder and D3 seems to have alleviated this for years now and generally I have felt better with a better and healthier outlook on everyday life.
But all my research indicates it takes massive doses to reach toxic levels, more than most people would take. Just remember to consult your doctors before taking any supplements and also check for side effects of medications with supplements. Your enthusiasm diminishes, and in its place comes doubt, discontentment, and a plethora of questions. I wondered how I remained cavity free before when I didn’t even brush, let alone floss, let alone brush and floss thrice a day.
At one time I was taking 2 different medications, I expected a pharmacist to warn me of any interactions, but they didn’t.
I had started with severe degenerative bone and disc disease took me out of nursing not by the ca. Do your research, get healthy amounts of natural sunlight on bare skin as healthy sunshine is not the boogie man and avoid the man made chemical D2. There are also other medications that people take that require their levels in your blood be checked as they can also cause serious problems. I had that happen as well and only an off-handed comment alerted my doctor to test my blood (unexplained bruising).
I for one believe with vitamin D anyway that supplementation is a must, but only really with D3 and don’t be afraid as your not going to overdose. I have malabsorbtion so check in with endocrinology before changing vitamins for possible other causes, needs and issues. The Patients Advocate will recommend a coarse of action for you so that you can receive the best level of treatment from that medical group. There are a lot of Vitamins, Minerals and Supplements that you should never take with specific medications.
