Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

Default Vitamin D and your joints

I have problems with one knee and tried everything.Did not want to have knee cut out by some doctor.I had heard first hand by knee replacement patients.On my last job I saw about 75 people at there houses every week as a salesman for a large company.I would run into these people with new knees.Believe me they wanted to complain to someone.
Anyway about five years ago I was at the stage of knee braces with steel flex rods on either side to get around.I had tried that popular joint mixture.Pain pills weren't my thing.When the big thing about v-D came out I took 1000 units and within a week my knees started feeling a little better.I increased the dosage finally to about 5000 units.Where I get a little stiff I sit in car for hour or more which minor.NO braces and walk around pain free.
D is suppose to boost your immune system like a fountain of youth.I am a believe.Taking to much is harmless.The dosage I say take a 1000units increase until the pain goes away.

Yes! Vitamin D is an absolute essential, especially as we don't get enough sunlight these days.

There is a blurb in the February ShirleyGram about it, too.

Happy to hear you are doing so well!
Love & Light,

Thanks for this info. My mother 82 last month had another fracture so after tests her bone density is very bad -2.5. Just last week a bone specialist told mum to take vitamin D.
I do spend much time outside and so far i am not taking any pills but I am considering if I should start taking vitamin D. I am gonna be 60 this year.

Any thoughts or sugestions on this subject? Looking forward to read more.

vitamin d as you get older the body needs more even if your outside.Because it absorbs less 5000 units for your age is good.YOU have to take 50000 units over a long time for a negitive reaction.
If you take no other vitamin take this and omega 3.
