Important Health News: Proactive Steps To A Cancer Free Life: Vitamin D

I have long been a proponent of seeking natural readily available chemicals and nutrients to prevent the development of Cancer..  It is also a fact that many important preventative chemicals that actually cure that horrendous disease are actually readily available.  People absolutely do NOT have to subject themselves to the so called Cancer "treatments" that the criminals behind the so called Medical profession recommend.  The fact is that these "treatments" do not cure Cancer at all, and in fact weaken the immune systems of patients to the point that in almost all cases the patient eventually dies.

I have constantly brought forward into this blog many reports about one chemical in particular that does wonder for the body.  That chemical is of course, Vitamin D.    Just today, I found the following article from the Intel Hub, at, entitled: "Proactive Steps To A Cancer Free Life: Vitamin D".   In this article, that I have here for everyone to see for themselves, you will see that Vitamin D actually helps the body prevent the onset of Cancer itself!   I have some of my own comments to follow:

Proactive Steps to a Cancer Free Life: Vitamin D

By Cynthia Henrich

Cancer is an opportunistic disease. It uses the opportunity that it recognizes in a toxically burdened, nutritionally and emotionally deficient body to overrun your normal defense system.

Cancer, which seems like such an overwhelming and complicated disease, truly has the potential to be vastly simplified when you break it down to its most basic issues: deficiency and toxicity.

Figure out the reasons behind the deficiency and clean up the toxic burden, and your body is enabled to carry on the healing processes of which it is intrinsically capable. This actually applies to virtually all disease, both physical and emotional.

More and more research supports the optimization of our Vitamin D levels as an extremely important step in the quest for a cancer free, long, healthy life. In fact, a recent study in The American Journal of Cardiology found that Vitamin D deficiency (serum levels below 30 ng/ml or 75 nmol/L) was a strong independent predictor of all causes of death.

More than 70% of the people in the study were below the status of 30 ng/ml required for “sufficiency”, but many clinicians believe that the number for sufficiency should be closer to 50 ng/ml, putting about 95% of the people in a state of deficiency.

Vitamin D3, Cholecalciferol, is what our bodies produce when our skin is exposed to the sun or UV-B light. Everyone should know their Vitamin D status, simply ask your doctor to run a 25(OH)D test (not a 1,25(OH)D test) the next time you get your blood drawn.

It’s as important as knowing your address or phone number, and it’s virtually guaranteed that you are not at optimal levels. But since Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin, which your body will store, it’s important to check your baseline, and also a good way to gauge, over time, how much sun and supplementation is required to get you and keep you sufficient.

The importance of becoming sufficient in regards to your Vitamin D levels cannot be overstated when it comes to cancer, but the incredible benefits extend much further.

Having optimized Vit D levels enables our immune system to function correctly, both in it’s ability to ward off disease and to effectively modulate itself so as not to create autoimmune conditions.

Vit D has been shown to clear the brain of the plaques found in Alzheimer’s disease, shrink uterine fibroids, and prevent cavities in your teeth. Is there nothing this sunshine jewel cannot conquer?

From Therapeutic Advances in Gastroenterology: “Some nontraditional roles ascribed to vitamin D include anti-inflammatory and immune-modulating effects. These effects have led to possible implications in the pathophysiology of immune-mediated diseases including multiple sclerosis and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). In addition, vitamin D insufficiency has been linked to higher rates of cancers including colon, prostate and breast cancers.”

  • deficient < 50 ng/ml
  • optimal 50-70 ng/ml
  • to address cancer, disease and calcium absorption 70-100 ng/ml
  • pregnancy outcomes 120 ng/ml
Most adults will require between 1,000-5,000 IU per day to maintain sufficiency, and up to 8,000 IU per day to get sufficient, in addition to the sun and what little is derived from foods. What about toxicity? Not a problem indicates the study, which found no toxicity with up to 10,000 IU per day and up to 200 ng/ml serum levels.

Take advantage of the energy of the sun by getting as much Vitamin D as possible by going outside, without sunscreen, for 10-15 minutes, or until you notice a faint pink tinge to your skin.

Of course, adjust for the fairness of your skin according to what you know your limits may be, but you need to expose your arms, at least, and NO sunscreen or the magic will not happen!

Our human ancestors did not have sunscreen and their bodies were capable of handling daily sun exposure; farmers have been out in the sun for years without massive waves of death and skin cancer.

Our issue is that we do not consume the proper nutrition to support the health and protection of our skin, such as the antioxidants and phyto-nutrients found in fruits and vegetables, preferably organic, and another source of ultra-protection, astaxanthin.

Astaxanthin is a super-antioxidant found in krill and other sea creatures that consume a micro-algae rich diet of this incredible super fat-soluble carotenoid.

Supplementing with 4 mg of high quality astaxanthin can be extremely protective against sun damage and supportive of your overall immune function and is definitely high on the list of things to add to your regimen for optimal health. It’s also the perfect compliment in your quest for optimal Vitamin D from sunshine!

NTS Notes:  It does make sense that Vitamin D is an important chemical in the prevention of Cancer, due to this amazing vitamin's abilities to strengthen the body's own immune system against the onset of diseases.

I personally take 8000 IU daily of Vitamin D3 in the form of natural source supplement capsules.  I have found that since I started this regimen of taking a high dosage of Vitamin D3 daily over two years ago, I have had less bouts of disease, less cases of Sinus infections (my most recent bout was actually less severe than in years past and I did NOT require any antibiotics), and I feel healthier than I have felt in years.

It is still up to each individual to determine if they want to add this supplement to their daily routines.   But because there is no adverse side effects to taking this chemical, then why not?

On one other side note:  I have come across some very interesting facts about Cancer itself that I do want to share with readers here.... Recent reports that I have read show that Cancer itself is due almost entirely to the body's own pH level falling from a normal of around neutral 7 to somewhere around 6.5.   At that pH level, the body becomes acidic, and Oxygen metabolism within cells becomes suppressed.   It seems that with some cells cut off from proper Oxygen supply due to an acidic pH environment, the cells turn to a form of fermentation of chemicals for metabolism, and they become "Cancerous".   It does appear therefore that Cancer is a method for cells to survive!   The trick therefore it to take foods and supplements that keep the body at a neutral or higher pH level for proper Oxygen metabolism.   One method that some people have suggested is simple baking soda in water taken twice a day to create a more basic pH level in the body to keep Oxygen levels in the body at a high level, and therefore to ward off Cancer.

More to come
