(NaturalNews) Are you vitamin D deficient? Most people, living in the "modern" (indoor) world are deficient in this "sunshine" vitamin - which is actually an essential hormone for every facet of your life. In fact, a low vitamin D level in your blood is directly connected to a higher incidence of cancer, osteoporosis, depression, arthritis and just about every other degenerative disease.
If your doctor doesn't believe, or understand, the value of vitamin D - find another healthcare provider. Healthcare costs are skyrocketing and conventional medicine only "treats" disease while ignoring natural solutions. Forget what you've heard from the lamesteam media, vitamin D can help reverse disease (naturally) without drugs or surgery.
The top 10 most prescribed drugs cause toxicity and (more) pain
According to the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics, a pharmaceutical market intelligence firm, here is a list of the 10 most-prescribed drugs in the United States:
1.Hydrocodone (combined with acetaminophen) -- 131.2 million prescriptions 2.Generic Zocor (simvastatin), a cholesterol-lowering statin drug -- 94.1 million prescriptions 3.Lisinopril (brand names include Prinivil and Zestril), a blood pressure drug -- 87.4 million prescriptions 4.Generic Synthroid (levothyroxine sodium), synthetic thyroid hormone -- 70.5 million prescriptions 5.Generic Norvasc (amlodipine besylate), an angina/blood pressure drug -- 57.2 million prescriptions 6.Generic Prilosec (omeprazole), an antacid drug -- 53.4 million prescriptions (does not include over-the-counter sales) 7.Azithromycin (brand names include Z-Pak and Zithromax), an antibiotic -- 52.6 million prescriptions 8.Amoxicillin (various brand names), an antibiotic -- 52.3 million prescriptions 9.Generic Glucophage (metformin), a diabetes drug -- 48.3 million prescriptions 10.Hydrochlorothiazide (various brand names), a water pill used to lower blood pressure -- 47.8 million prescriptions.
But, here's the problem, not one of these drugs - listed above - address the underlying nutrient deficiencies that cause inflammation (pain); depression or any other health-related dis-ease. Contrary to popular belief, most conventionally-trained physicians have a very limited education about health.
They've been taught how to write prescriptions; perform surgical procedures and make referrals - when necessary. But, remember, this has nothing to do with health - only "disease management".
Vitamin D can prevent serious health problems and here's the scientific evidence to prove it
According to Harvard School of Public Health, several studies link low vitamin D levels with an increased risk of fractures in older adults. In fact, "researchers found that high intakes of vitamin D supplements - of about 800 IU per day - reduced hip and non-spine fractures by 20 percent, while lower intakes (400 IU or less) failed to offer any fracture prevention benefit."
The Health Professional Follow-Up Study checked the vitamin D blood levels in nearly 50,000 men who were healthy, and then followed them for 10 years. They found that men who were deficient in vitamin D were twice as likely to have a heart attack as men who had adequate levels of vitamin D. Most natural health experts agree that a healthy blood level for vitamin D is around 50 - 60ng/ml - some suggest even higher levels for therapeutic reasons.
There are literally hundreds (if not thousands) of well-done, scientific papers about how vitamin D virtually eliminates the risks for disease. But, William Grant, Ph.D., a top vitamin D researcher, sums it up best when he said, "vitamin D intake or production at the rate of 2000 - 4000 IU/day, leading to serum calcidiol levels of greater than 40ng/mL (100nmol/L) can significantly reduce the burden of both chronic and infectious diseases. Those with darker skin should take higher vitamin D supplementation."

Learn how vitamin D helps to stop cancer, arthritis, heart disease + much more - Sun. June 30
Dr. Sorenson graduated from Brigham Young University with a doctorate in education and an emphasis in health education and exercise. He has a passion for wellness which has driven his career. Years of advanced medical and scientific research led him to gather a comprehensive understanding of health and weight control. With his wife, Vicki, Dr. Sorenson founded National Institute of Fitness (NIF), one of the world's highest rated destination health and fitness resorts.
National Institute of Fitness was credited with successes such as helping clients lose remarkable amounts of weight, and for educating diabetics regarding methods to help reduce or eliminate medications. The Institute also provided health education on topics like high cholesterol, lupus, arthritis, migraines, heart disease, hypertension, angina, and allergies. Many physicians visited NIF to achieve better health and to find alternative methods for their patients.
With healthcare costs skyrocketing and the failure of conventional medicine to cure disease - isn't it time for a change? In truth, there are very simple ways to prevent, even reverse disease - naturally without drugs or surgery. Discover the importance of vitamin D in your life.
