Information on the latest vitamin D news and research.

Find out more information on deficiency, supplementation, sun exposure, and how vitamin D relates to your health.

Sharing my experience: I have MS an have been taking 100,000iu vitamin D daily, this following the Coimbra protocol. I started last August and I now feel better than I ever have since 2 years. Last year alone I had 4 relapses, was terribly tired and couldn't do much of my self other than resting the whole day; I had a terrible year, experiencing extreme fatigue, memory fogs, couldn't go up the stairs without resting after, etc. I never watched so many TV shows :) I am however now able to go back to work and perform my activities. My fatigue has improved every week since on the protocol and my mind is also now clear as it was before. I of course take co-factors and have been doing this jointly with health professionals with timely blood tests, etc. I am very grateful that this protocol exists.

    So Fred I knew about the doctor is South America that is using high amounts of Vitamin D for MS. I did steer one or two people there so they could investigate but I have not investigated it myself.
    Since you have and are on the protocol, how are blood levels handled? Meaning if you take that much a day, I assume(?) you have a really high blood level? Or am I wrong? Does the protocol not really worry about “blood levels” and only worries about calcium levels or how does that part work?
    Glad you feel better!!!

      Thanks!!! That is right, at the beginning of the protocol the D level is measured but what matters more is the calcium level in the blood and urine and the PTH level. PTH is directly tied to Vitamin D and calcium level. The first phase of the protocol is to determine the correct level of vitamin D for your situation and have that daily dose until your PTH lowers to around 10. At around 10, this is the moment when the vitamin D will have the most effect on your body. So when you are there, usually after a few months, a new and lower vitamind D ‘maintenance’ dose is calculated for you and that is the dose you will take for until you are in remission, and after. The only thing I know about my D level for now is that it’s off the chart. This is good for MS but also for Psoriasis and other autoimmune diseases.

      Fred is the “patient sheet” actually posted anywhere and if so do you have a link. Since you have more knowledge than me in this area, is there a “best” website or posting area for information. I found http://www.thisisms.com/forum/coimbra-high-dose-vitamin-d-protocol-f57/topic25393.html today but if you have any suggestions, they would be appreciated.

      There is a web site here about the protocol: http://www.vitamindprotocol.com/ but you can actually find the patient sheet on this facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/EscleroseMultiplaOTratamento/
      you can post there in english or translate to portuguese using google and somebody will answer you for sure. If you want to look at one video then this is the best one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hOfO29rL-gI
