Vitamin D has shown a lot of promise with regards to preventing COVID-19. As was stated in Chapter 2 of my book “The Corona Virus Survival Guide: The Secrets and Power of Your Immune System”, low vitamin D levels have been shown to be a risk factor for COVID-19.
In the book, I shared one study showed that, “Through several mechanisms, vitamin D can reduce risk of infections…
Those mechanisms include inducing cathelicidins and defensins that can lower viral replication rates and reducing concentrations of pro-inflammatory cytokines that produce the inflammation that injures the lining of the lungs, leading to pneumonia, as well as increasing concentrations of anti-inflammatory cytokines….
Evidence supporting the role of vitamin D in reducing risk of COVID-19 includes that the outbreak occurred in winter, a time when 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) concentrations are lowest; that the number of cases in the Southern Hemisphere near the end of summer are low; that vitamin D deficiency has been found to contribute to acute respiratory distress syndrome; and that case-fatality rates increase with age and with chronic disease comorbidity, both of which are associated with lower 25(OH)D concentration.
To reduce the risk of infection, it is recommended that people at risk of influenza and/or COVID-19 consider taking 10,000 IU/d of vitamin D3 for a few weeks to rapidly raise 25(OH)D concentrations, followed by 5000 IU/d. The goal should be to raise 25(OH)D concentrations above 40-60 ng/mL (100-150 nmol/L). For treatment of people who become infected with COVID-19, higher vitamin D3 doses might be useful.” (39)
Dr Klinghardt’s COVID Prevention Protocol:
Dr Dietrich Klinghardt, the founder of The Klinghardt Institute, (https://klinghardtinstitute.com) is a world renowned doctor with one of the best reputations in the world for healing patients. Below, is a protocol he recommends for any wishing to prevent any illness from the Coronavirus.
Of course, it should go without saying that these recommendations are an addition and not a substitute for the other recommendations previously suggested in my blogs on nutrition.
There has never been a better time in history to improve your health and wellbeing!!! 🙏🙏🙏
