    I think it's about time we differentiated personal health from the medical "industry". We need to accept the "industry" for what it is. They're not there to help us, they're there to help themselves. Thank you, by the way, I'm doing a Vitamin D test today. They are available, no problem!

      @Piotr Ang Unless he means certain veg and fruit, but the old 5 a day is a myth, as clearly you realise, but many don't. The dietary advice of conventional medical healthcare practitioners tends to be well wide of the mark of what we really need. Dr Campbell tends to go broader and deeper into topics than most practitioners from the allopathic field do, but he's maybe still ltd somewhat in his approach. I guess working with narrow-minded people for so may yrs has its drawbacks!

      @Piotr Ang I'm unsure about your answer. These are my definitions of sugar and carbohydrates and how I live. My definitions are only relative to my organs, you make your own definitions and eat accordingly. I am height/weight proportionate, no sign of diabetes, 63 years old, test for Vitamin D, never had Covid and remain healthy, but equally importantly content and happy. 😂

    As a shift worker, my Vit D levels were very low and last year, I crossed the threshold into type 2 diabetes. Since hearing of Vit D and it's role in good health, I started taking supplements. I wish the health implications of shift working was taken more seriously by companies.

      stevekitt52: I'm sympathetic to your health situation. Companies these days are undoubtedly driven by profit, the workers are expendable by all accounts, so unless a forced radical change occurs, you are very much on your own health-wise. Dr Campbell is a great source on genuine advise and Vitamin D3 is your friend, however, as he indicates, Vitamin K2 taken at the same time stops the build up of Calcium being deposited into your arteries. The body then naturally directs the calcium to your bones for strength etc. There's plenty of authentic research in the public domain to support this as fact. Apparently it's best to consult a good doctor on this, especially if you take blood thinning medications etc. Offered without prejudice.
      Best wishes.

    Interesting! I was considered pre-diabetic by my GP for years. I started taking vitamin D supplements at the beginning of the covid pandemic because I heard it helped the immune system. In my last three physicals my doctor congratulated me on no longer being pre-diabetic. I had not connected the vitamin d to that but it makes sense now.

      You are exactly right about big pharma! It began in the medical schools with big pharma supplying the medical text books in medical schools, back in the early 1900's. We were using holistic and chiropractors until John Rockefeller came up with this brilliant idea to use pharmaceuticals & give free medical text books to the medical schools. With only one stipulation that doctor's be taught that only big pharma's PETROCHEMICAL based products could be used which caused the end of holistic medicine being used by most doctor's at the time. It was never about providing better health just using petroleum based pills and might help some people in the process but definitely no cures! The US is 4.25% of the world's population but we take 75% of all the pharmaceutical drugs. We are less healthy than most Asian countries although we have infiltrated their markets with a lot of unhealthy foods and drinks and of course push our legal drugs there too.
      We know herbs and organic natural foods will cure most aliments yet we have legalized drugs and our doctor's don't promote the use of herbs or true healthy foods. Our conventional medical doctors are complicit in just recommending drugs from the legal drug cartels although if they want to be a conventional doctor they have to prescribe only parmaceuticals because it's the "science!" Do you find it odd anything that is healthy always needs more scientific random controlled studies etc. etc. Why doesn't the government fund healthy foods or herbs that look promising? In a word, LOBBYIST!! We can't compete against big pharma...
      Funny how we started the war on cancer under the Nixon administration and cancer has skyrocketed since that time! The American cancer society, diabetes association etc are more about keeping their nonprofits in business than they are about a cure for diseases. It's all about "managed care," they would loose their funding with a cure. It's 100% about the Benjamin's. Of course it's a shame there are some very good people who mean well doctor's included but they are in a rigged system!
      The pandemic was a windfall for big pharma and that fact they can't be sued because the vaccines are still listed as an experimental is unbelievable!!
      Functional medical doctors in my opinion are the way to go, they try and find the root cause of a problem, instead of treating the symptoms like conventional docs do. I hope I shed some light to a few people with my ramblings! Thanks to "swainsongable"for initiating this conversation!

    Thankyou John, this is quite staggering. I've been a big fan of vitamin D3 for decades, since I worked as a counsellor and support worker at MS Society of the ACT and became aware of the importance of vitamin D sufficiency in managing MS and the global latitudinal gradient of MS cases. However, I had no idea that it was useful in diabetes protection. I agree that populations should be tested for vitamin D levels, yet in Australia, I have found that some Dr's are reluctant to screen for vitamin D levels. In 2009/10 MS Research Australian compared taking high'ish levels of Vitamin D daily [about 6000iu per day from memory] against the pharmaceutical injection medications for MS [where injection sites are difficult to manage]. They found Vitamin D to be as good in managing the condition. Alas, we didn't get to hear much about that piece of research. I think it got ‘lost’ in the bottom draw of a filing cabinet somewhere, never to see the light of day.

      @MatlasX be careful of directed research there are a million reasons that could be true or false or directed to a belief, for example you could easily say the farther north ya go the colder it gets and less and less time spent out in the sun and more time hiding in house. You could argue it's food choices as it takes a high degree of knowledge and work to eat clean food in Canada, if it's in a store it's likely been tampered with or contains additives

    I’m a Veteran, USAF, and the Veterans Administration provides all of my health care. I have a blood test every 6 months, and Vitamin D is something they always check.
    They use a ng/mL with an acceptable range of 30-70. I am running about 60 ng/mL. I take 2000 units of Vitamin D daily.
    And as you have pointed out in previous videos, Vitamin D is helpful protection from the COVID virus.

    I was diagnosed with Pre-diabetes last year and during this last year I lost 30lbs through exercise and intermittent fasting and this year my blood sugar levels were normal. I am a strong believer in intermittent fasting for lowering risk of insulin resistance. I also supplement with Vitamin D (I take anywhere from 4,000 iu to as much as 20,000iu a day). The only risk I still struggle with as a man of 55 is Cholesterol levels which started to inch up as I gained weight and started taking blood pressure medication. Vitamin D is very important and yes, it is very simple to increase our intake.

    I find it absolutely remarkable is that it took till 2023 for real doctors to figure this one out. It was actually discovered in Edmonton Alberta 30 years ago. I'm not sure if the guy was an archaeologist or a geologist but he decided to study the world after a seventeen-year-old ended up with MS. After he did his research he discovered that anyone living around the equator that got more than 4,000 units of vitamin D a day didn't have diabetes and didn't have any MS. He put his son on 4,000 units a day and he never had any more attacks from MS. The original article came out in the Globe and Mail in Canada. I do believe in the early 90s. I find it extremely frustrating when egotistical doctors refuse to look at good information. As well any Inuits poor people in the Northern parts of Canada ie Nunavut Northwest Territories if they eat enough fish with vitamin D they don't have the problem either. Science needs to be moving a lot faster than the way they put her around about stuff.

    I took on your advice during lockdown about taking vitamin D but didn't know about K2 until you discovered the combination much later on. I have recently been diagnosed with heart disease and peripheral vascular disease (Claudication in legs), which was undetected beforehand, and as I had always been a fit person came as a complete shock to me. Not pointing a finger at you one iota, but I understand that without the 2 combined there is a risk that the calcium formed goes to unwanted places and can form calcification, which is what has happened to me. For other peoples benefit can I ask that you stress the combined Vit D and K2 be imperative together. I have the utmost respect for you and have followed you for the past few years and will continue to do so.

    I've never been pre-diabetic but I was pre-RA and autoimmune disease. My doctor had a awakening one day during our visit and she tested by 25hydro VitD and it came back at 7! Started 50,000 units a week and six months later, my blood work was all normal and I felt much better. Tested my VitD again and I came out at 45 after six months. Still taking and will take VitD rest of my life. It's amazing. My fibro went away. Why did medicine not figure this out long ago? I also take hydroxychloroquine and it has been huge help, also! Covid about did me in in 2020 and it took the lives of two uncles and my father with shattered glass lungs.

      @Maree George Exactly. I sit in the sun mostly unclothed for about 10 min, then apply at least SPF 15, usually 30, if I’m going to remain in the sun for awhile up to 30 min. Bear in mind, it takes a little time for sunscreen to be effective; it’s not immediate. I’ll do this about three times weekly. I’m white but not light complected. Do not burn easily and currently have a moderate tan. Also, my weight is in normal range. I sweeten foods with stevia.

    something so simple and safe. I’m a RN case manager in the states and I see this first hand daily when I talk to our patients, when I review labs with them (after their physician has done that of course).
    I do find that we are testing the A1C a lot more in the recent years, and in younger patients now, I’ve seen it checked in patients in their 30s -which is excellent.
    One thing I encourage everyone to ask from their doctors.. I encourage them to request an insulin level-this shows how resistant or sensitive our cells are to sugar/glucose..
    If fasting insulin is high, it means your cells are less sensitive to the effects of that insulin and your body makes more. This is the precursor to “pre-diabetes” , so in essence it’s the pre-prediabetes marker..
    “Normal” fasting insulin is under 19, some labs will have under 20. Optimal level is under 8..
    ** would love to hear a chat about insulin level and insulin sensitivity/resistance Dr Campbell..🤗🤓

      'Bumping up your dosage' won't help combat an infection at the time, as it takes up to a week for vitamin D to be processed by the body. More likely it is the vitamin D already in your blood that is combatting the infection by ensuring your immune system has what it requires. Vitamin D doesn't prevent infection, but ensuring that your immune system has sufficient vitamin D will help your immune system to combat infection more quickly.
      It's entirely normal to feel an infection coming on and then for it to go away again, as that is what happens when your immune system fights off infection.
      It's possible that 'bumping up your dosage' has a placebo effect, but there is no substitute for maintaining a sufficient dosage at all times and, since it is almost impossible to over dose on vitamin D, it makes sense to be on a high dose, especially if elderly or obese.

    I have type 2. Nearly all of my mom's 1 siblings, except for two, have been diagnosed at 50. I was diagnosed last Fall. My maternal grandmother wasn't diagnosed until it was too late.
    My Doctor always checks for Vitamin D deficiency. I used to have it until I started drinking a lactose free milk that I like. I hadn't had any milk for a while. I was having more trouble controlling it, until I started have milk in my cereal again and now my levels are usually in the 5 to 6.4 range. Granted I usually cook my own food everyday. I rarely eat fast food. So lots of things are going on. I stopped drinking pop. Chocolate bars are difficult, but I have a chocolate chip cookies that are low carb and no added sugar that doesn't put my sugars up. I am not losing weight though due to hypothyroidism that is not controlled because I can't have the available ones because lactose is in all the ones available in my country. Lactose makes me sick. I am working on it though.

    This is quite astonishing. For context, I’m an man in my early sixties. Three years ago I was pre diabetic, with a Blood Glucose test score of 6.4. I’ve been taking Vitamin D3, 2,500 iu per day, since February 2020, primarily to protect me from the worse effects of Covid. Recently I had my Vitamin D3 levels measured, I has a test result of 85. At this time, among other tests, I also had a HbA1c test done. My score had dropped down to 5.4. My GP was so impressed he rang me to congratulate me and ask me what I’d been doing to bring about this change. I told him I’d been swimming four days a week and taking Vitamin D3 daily. He seemed oblivious to the Vitamin D benefit, and said rather sceptically, “it must be the swimming that did it”
    I look forward to emailing him a link to your podcast this evening.

    My brother had diabetes II for 16 years; with a septuple heart bypass in the 10th year and 80 units insulin per day. Just kept getting worse with this standard of care. I then taught him an extreme keto diet (75% fats ... mostly olive, avocado or coconut oils, 15% proteins, and 15% "roughage". By the end of the 3rd week insulin needed was 0 (zero). 2 months later his A1C was down to 5.3 compared to 6.7 for the last 16 years. His doctors proclaimed him 'cured', no longer diabetic or even pre-diabetic. Prevent a diabetic relapse mainly requires less than 25 grams sugar or refined starches per day. Re; Vit D3, he has had monthly bouts of gout for 20+ years, yet upon taking 30,000 unit vit D3, his gout attack went away in 20 minutes, and has not returned in the 4 years since, while taking 30.000 units/day. As always thank you Dr. Campbell for your continuing education on health.

    I was diagnosed with T2 niddm in November of 2017 weight then was 23 stone. My GP instantly prescribed Metformin and Statins. I asked for time. By June 2018 I had lost 8 stone and was returning a normal HbA1c for a non diabetic. Fast forward to last week and my GP stating that I’m in remission from T2 diabetes after never having a high HbA1c since.
    I have kept the weight off. Run 40 plus half marathons, 2 trail marathons, an ultra marathon and completed several loaded challenges. I will be 56 this year. My resting HR is 54 BP 112/78 VO2 max is 43. Prior to 2017 I couldn’t walk 500m.
    I simply cut out all processed foods and free sugars and walked 5km per day to get my initial weight loss. I’ve also survived CV19 despite being unvaccinated and in the at risk group. Oh and I never took the statins or metformin. Exercise and diet also brought me back from the brink of suicide after a diagnosis of ptsd in 2018.

    Great insight as usual from Dr. Campbell. That said, reducing caloric intake, especially carbs would also reduce the incidence of diabetes in our overfed and overweight population here in the US. I think this is very important to note as obesity is now being excused, if not celebrated in the US from the woke crowd.
    Yes, I also take D3 / K2 and magnesium every day.

    Vitamin D maybe a factor but as a long term type 2 diabetic the thing that has saved me is the keto diet. I had out of control blood sugar and stage 4 kidney disease, and 2 years later I have lost 27kg, have stopped
    all diabetic meds and have fully controlled blood sugar. Three months after I started the diet my kidney
    specialist (nephrologist) was amazed that my kidney function had improved 25%. When you are accustomed to this diet your whole view of eating changes, intermittent fasting comes almost naturally,
    and I have lost the cravings for highly processed high carb foods. If you look at the average diet of most
    people they eat literally hundreds of grams of carb every day, this is the poison that, even with all our modern medicine, is causing millions of cases of type 2 diabetes every year. All of this leads to the economic reality, if the whole population started to eat to control or avoid diabetes, the economy would
    likely collapse. I would never listen to the organisation, Diabetes Australia again, if I followed their
    recommended diet I would be back on meds again, it’s only a half way approach with them and it makes
    me wonder, why exactly that is?

      I started taking it because I was having mood swings and bouts of crying for the first time in my life at 45 years old. I'd heard it helps with emotional issues. I can say I have definitely had far fewer mood swings. As a side note, I never get serious colds, but I did a year ago, so it was most likely Covid, and was only extremely tired for two days. I had a severe headache for 4 days (before and during) and a slight amount of chest congestion and cough, but that was all. So it may have helped lighten my symptoms there, too.

    Outstanding report doctor. I've been a pre-diabetic for a couple of years. Issues yes. October 2019,
    I was concerned about brittle bones and I understood vitamin D helped with strengthening.
    I check the RDA requirement for my age and weight and it indicated I could take upward of 10,000 IUs a day.
    All through the pandemic, I took 10K Vitamin D, plus other vitamins of course. I recently this year discovered K2 and its assistance with Calcium, and I had a blood test and it was a 43 with Vitamin D, no other indicator to know what that meant, based on your presentation, I am up near 40. That was vital for me to know. I think starting next month I am going back to 10,000 with Liposome.
    One other thing, I was completely insane with Sodium. I think because of the Vitamin D, I did not have a massive coronary. When I appeared at the doctor's office I was in Hypertension Critical she said her protocol was to immediately send me to the emergency room. I had no outward indication of stress but I was scared a bit. I think the first number was 199. I'm walking around every day with that number, and I am having the symptoms, the mental fog, out of breath climbing the stairs, etc., but I had no idea about my high blood pressure.
    When it was shown to me, I acquiesced to taking BP drugs. And to finally clean up my diet, and get salt out of my life. You want to hear something funny. I've done so well, I actually put myself in a Hypotensive Critical situation and she didn’t tell me anything about that danger.
    I just happen to look up what the 3 numbers mean and read low blood pressure is as dangerous as HBP. I had to then get salt in the body fast. So, I have a machine and take my BP twice a day. I stay within the limit up and down, and the fog is gone and I can walk up all the flights without taking a break, and reach my door without huffing and puffing like and train.
    The reason I had to go to the doctor I was getting bad symptoms, diabetic blisters, and fluid coming out of the skin, it was bad for a while, and all the time, I have no idea what is wrong and why is my body doing this. It took a long time for me to find out. I was putting garbage in my body, plain and simple.
    So, I know everything you said is true. The least medical authorities can do is educate those 37 million on what to look for, and if they recognize it, stop the sweets and supplement with vitamin D, and get healthy, or else.
    In the interest of science.

    The information that you offered on vitamin D originally brought me to your channel in March 2020. For my family this clearer understanding of the role that quality sunlight (and the need to supplement when this sunlight is not available) plays in our health is the number one benefit that has come out of watching your channel during that period, and from the C-19 pandemic generally.
    When you cross reference the top pathologies associated with vitamin D deficiency (diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and cancer), the top pathologies suffered in deficient populations, and the prevalence of these deficiencies/pathologies in these populations (40-85% < 20 ng/mL) the picture becomes very clear. Eradicating Vitamin D deficiency is the low hanging fruit in a healthcare crisis! It is perhaps the most shameful scandal of our time that our public health officials have ignored these basic correlations and failed to develop strategies that could safely and effectively mitigate such massive suffering on a global scale with relative ease.

    Quite dramatic figures. Excellent job you do in presenting these figures. I am aware since a long time ago that D3 is important, kind of the king among the vitamins. I was not aware of the efficiency to prevent DM2. However, the vast majority of DM2 cases are caused by excessive intake of added sugar and starch, carbohydrates, (Starch, that in reality turns to sugar, glucose, already when reaching the stomach. Seconds later...) and lack of exercise. My belief is that by just reducing that added sugar, combined with vitamin D, will bring a huge improvement for most pre- and fullblown DM2. Read the label, sugar is everywhere... // Thank you, great job, i am one of your dedicated viewers!!!

    Dr. John, again thank you for the information. I take a daily multivitamin supplement. At my last Doctor visit, my Dr. said I should stop taking Vitamin D, because my levels were too high. I countered with "what if I cut my dose in half"? She suggested none. My daily supplement has a small amount, so I'm still taking it. I had been taking 4,000 IU daily since nearly the beginning of Covid.
    I was concerned you wouldn't mention the dietary causes of Diabetes, but you did, and I'm grateful. Since May of 2020 I've been following a strict food program. I've lost about 50 pounds and my blood work shows my health has increased significantly. I wonder how many people know that the companies who produce food actually do MRI scans to see when the recipes light up our brain the most? I have little faith in the food industry. As one poster said here, the medical industry is just that, "industry". They are helping themselves, as are the food companies. They are NOT helping us. It would be interesting if you did a study on the increase of sugar in the American/UK diet, and correlation to increased Diabetes. Again, thank you for your thoughtful and thought-provoking commentaries.

    Hi John, I've had type 1 diabetes for over 45 years. I'm 100% convinced that obesity is caused by the processed food diet which is high in carbohydrates. Insulin is the hormone that stores fat. Any excess carbohydrates eaten is stored as fat. A simple understanding of the metabolic pathways is all that is needed. Carbohydrate is the bodies fastest form of fuel. Problem is we eat way more than needed. The excess is stored as fat. I have often looked at what people eat and do a quick calculation of how much insulin I would need to take to cover that. Most times it would require my total daily amount of insulin to cover one meal. The body works very hard to maintain a very narrow level of sugar in the blood. This results in high insulin levels. Process food is a very upfront absorption of sugar. The body doesn't have to process it. It is already processed. This requires a high amount of insulin to maintain blood sugar levels. Insulin has a 4-6 hour window of action. After about 2 hours of this high carb meal the person is hungry. Famished!!! Craving sugar. Why? The active insulin in their body is now dropping their sugar. Faster than the stored glygogen can convert back to sugar. They eat to feed their insulin. I have watched people eat 4 or more times as much food as I do because of hunger. I'm not hungry. The only time I am hungry is when I have too much insulin on board and my sugar is low or dropping too fast. You want to loose weight start by lowering your carbs. The only people that need lots of carbs are those who are burning lots through exercise or work. The fat free diet is the biggest mistake the healthcare system ever created. It is the cause of all this obesity as the food industry followed its lead.Prediabetes can be corrected in a very short period of time by a low carb diet. Insulin resistance can be corrected by low carb. It can by exercise too but it is just matching the amount of carbs to what you really need. You can't eat too litlle carbs. Your body can get sugar from fats and protein. And your body won't make too much sugar through this process. Just some things I've learnt while titrating insulin to match my need and watching everyone arond me get fat.

    in Germany there are Vitamin D tests for a reasonable price by Vitamoment. You send in 3 big blooddrops on a testplate (I don't know the right English word) and then you get your results about one week later. I regularly test my Vitamin D level in this way and the first time I did it was frightening. I really thought: why am I still alive?

    Your focus on D and k2 have been truly illuminating.
    It would be great if you could expand your videos to cover other vitamins & supplements like C, E, Magnesium, Potassium, Iron, the B family, etc, etc.
    You are able to ferret out studies on these compounds that could benefit your viewers immensely. We are basically left to our own devices, given the pharmaceutical industry isn't interested in promoting anything unless they have patented it.

      @LAT Yes. Have you looked up issues regarding toxicity of too much Vitamin D, which can take many years to appear. It is impossible to get too much vitamin D from the sun or food, but you can easily do yourself damage by taking it in supplement form. Taking pills is not a substitute for a healthy diet and lifestyle, and if you are leading a healthy lifestyle, you don't need to be taking loads of supplements.

      @LAT I don't think anyone knows exactly how much Vitamin D we need to stay alive. There are many elderly people in their 80s or 90s that have gone their whole lives and never taken a single food supplement. A balanced diet provides what we need, if someone is deficient in Vitamin D then they will also be lacking in other vitamins, so you might as well take a supplement that contains everything and is often cheaper. Too much vitamin D is harmful and becomes toxic and builds up calcium in the blood that can go on to cause all manner of complications. Just telling people to pop a load of vitamin D is dangerous. Telling people to eat a healthy diet is safe and more effective and has a wide overall benefit. Too many people take the lazy route and pop pills and medicines and continue an unhealthy lifestyle.

      @Chris Lee the 100% and RDA figure is deceptive. It is the absolute minimum required to stay alive. Aa many people are deficient in Vitamin D in the UK, taking a standard multivitamin would take up to 4 years to address vit D deficiency alone. Or you can take higher dosage to reach optimum levels quickly. It's your choice. If you're happy with multivitamins, fine. But it is rather like having a large credit card bill and only making minimum payments, it takes years to clear the deficit.

    Wow! I think you're spot on. They should consider prescribing or recommending it for glucokinase (mody) a condition which is very prone to tipping into type 2 diabetes. I have this condition, I've never been overweight & I've been trying not to tip into type 2 for years. Except for a couple of occasions mostly I've succeeded. The last time my blood glucose was too high I was also feeling unwell & very achy. A blood test showed my vit D levels were extremely low. I was prescribed vit D/calcium and I couldn't believe the difference. It was wonderful to feel well again! My blood glucose levels also returned to normal and out of the type 2 range. I thought this was a consequence of feeling better, so did my GP. Your video is certainly food for thought. Thank you.

Fast forward to now and I sure am glad he did and that I listened to him. I take 2000 IU a day. I tried 4000 IU and I found it to interfere with my ability to sleep, so I went back down to 2000 IU. It has definitely helped with my depression, and I guess with my immunity because I have not gotten covid. I'm American.

    I am type 2 diabetic and no longer on meds and all I can tell you is that vitamin D3 played a big part in this and I continue to take it as I’m a whole lot better when I’ve had it than when I haven’t. Take it with vitamin K2 , I take the mk7 variant of this because that takes the calcium from your soft tissue and blood and puts the calcium in the places that it’s supposed to go. Vitamin D3 & vitamin K2 taken together helps with the stiffness in the body that is caused by calcium buildup in the soft body tissue, it’s called the sunshine vitamin for a very good reason because it also raises your mood and helps with depression. I had Hodgkin’s lymphoma and the treatment along with other factors resulted in my diabetes, I was diagnosed with diabetes in the March of 2018 with diet and exercise, walking 4 miles a day and taking the vitamins and minerals that my body was lacking after the chemotherapy I lost 4 stones in weight and was off the meds by the October of that same year. The doctor and my diabetes nurse all said that I’d done amazing. I returned to work and it was a bit difficult at first but now I’m over the trauma of the whole situation because having cancer was traumatic even though I didn’t realise it at the time because it developed after the treatment and when I was diagnosed as diabetic and with the stress off now having money worries and being afraid of losing my house and my hand being forced to return to work but the vitamin D3 helped with that and I’ve now been back at work nearly 5 years. I enjoy your videos Dr John because they’re fact based evidence and you’re not some tin foil hat wearing conspiracy theorist and all what you said in this video resonated with me and what I personally know about vitamin D3 because of my experiences with it, I also had a chronic stiff neck and it sounded like my neck was full of gravel when I turned my head and it cured that also. It’s good stuff and people should take it but always take it with vitamin K2 / mk7 as this variant of K2 stays in the body longer and therefore works for a longer period.

      @King I also take cod liver oil capsules for joint pain, this also helps with circulation by cleaning veins and arteries, I also take turmeric with black pepper capsules for muscle pain and inflammation and most things are linked to inflammation because inflammation is the absolute enemy of the body and it brings illnesses and conditions, also apple cider vinegar with lemon juice helps the digestive system and many things are linked to that because if the stomach isn’t acid enough you can’t absorb the vitamins and minerals from your food and supplements and therefore get problems associated with that. Sorry for going on but after cancer which left me with type 2 diabetes I had to learn how my body worked and what it needed, must be doing some good because I’ve seen the doctor once in 5 years and I don’t even bother with the Diabetes nurse anymore and if I have problems I’ll let them know instead of them pestering me all the time. Like I said before, have a look on KZclip for Dr Eric berg because he’s got good videos regarding just about anything, also doctor Alan Mandell has some good videos too, I watched one of his videos on Drinking Turmeric Milk before bedtime, it worked pretty good, here’s what I did, got a big mug, put a heaped teaspoon of Turmeric in it, quarter spoon of black pepper in there too, boiled kettle put a little hot water in and mixed to a runny paste, topped it up with full fat milk and Microwave until the top of the milk froths up, put a teaspoon of butter in and let it cool down a bit and then drink it. You can put honey or some sweetener in but I don’t because I’m Diabetic and sugar is the cause of inflammation and many other things in the body so cut the sugar out if you can this will help the inflammation which will be present because of your Arthritis and the Milk and Turmeric mixture will help your bones , you say you already take K2 so this will transport the calcium in the milk to where it needs to be. Hope this helps, Adrian. Oh, I forgot to mention that 10,000 iu’s of vitamin D3 is actually 0.25 milligrams and not 25 milligrams as I previously put in my last post so it’s not a massive amount even though it sounds like it is so you’ll be fine to increase your dose, I took 40,000 iu’s last night with 4 k2 tablets so increase your dose if you want to but work out by doing a bit at a time until you get the desired effect that you are looking for.

      I had this problem when I first started taking 10k iu. Make sure you are using a high quality D3 and k2 but you need magnesium glycinate 600-800 mg to lock the calcium in the bones after the k2 gets it out of the tissues and moves it there. It took me about a year and a half of doing the protocol to get my levels to about 60. Now in between 68-75. I take 5000iu now but with intermittent fasting I have dropped 45 lbs so far and the bone pain I used to have has diminished by 90%.

      Yes, a difficult problem. High sugar levels, so the obvious thing is to cut down the sugar. People with diabetes suffer from high sugar levels which is very harmful in your blood.
      But at the end of the day you have to choose between whether you think taking a handful of different drugs is the way to good health or improving your diet with good food and avoiding processed foods.
      I think people mention cutting down on foods so the body feels a little hungry at times and avoiding sugar at all costs if you think your body is not coping with it.
      Exercise is important too but again as we see with sports people this can be over done too.
      Life is a bit like walking a tightrope but listening to your body is important and then reacting to what it says and deciding whether you need a doctor or whether you can identify your bad habits.
      Smoking is big no no for me but it’s amazing how many believe in its good qualities
      And for many the pharmacy is their choice for their health as I find out when queuing up for dozens of medicines daily for other people.

It may not be the doctor is purposely overlooking better solutions for their patients, but that it may be a deficiency in their medical training, not staying up to date, dealing with the pressures of running their clinic, not having enough time to spend with each patient, limitations on what tests they can order due to insurance limitations, and influence of the pharmaceutical companies. Some physicians practice 'functional' medicine, which may include using food (nutrients) as medicine, as mentioned recently by John, the nutraceutical approach.

    And along with preventing diabetes, it’s cancer protective. Double win!

    So well explained, it made more sense than when my doctor explained it to me. Thank you so much Sir.

    Great information! My aunt is going through pre-diabetes, and already changed her diet to zero carbs (but not carnivore, sadly).
