It seems that Vitamin D therapy could be the greatest miracle of the millennium. But, there is some opposition to these findings. Trevor Marshall, PhD, recently co-chaired the 6th International Congress on Autoimmunity. He presented his team’s findings from the past eight years.
Recent technological progress has given us the ability to discover smaller microscopic bacteria, which has lead to the discovery of a tiny bacteria that block the Vitamin D receptors (VDR) in our body. Measurement then shows abnormally low levels of Vitamin D. Studies indicate that supplementing Vitamin D acts more like an immunosuppressive steroid in suppressing our immune system, which gives the Prostate Protocol bacteria an opportunity to increase. Symptoms will then decrease in the short term, possibly a number of years, but the bacteria continue to increase. Vitamin D receptors are important in the function of the immune system, producing some of the body’s natural antibiotics.
These studies indicate Vitamin D supplementation may make an individual feel better in the short term but, in the long term, the bacterial infection will increase, causing a chronic infection and progression of disease.
Professor Marshall suggests a protocol of pulsed, low dosages of bacteriostatic antibiotics to eliminate the bacterial infections causing the diseases.
It seems to me that, until all the results are in, it may be a good idea to refrain from taking large doses of Vitamin D. We’ve all seen so called miracle drugs before that turned out to have long term, negative effects.
