My own doctor was thrilled to bring my level up from 22 to 30 because he got me into the “normal range” (between 30-100), great, I won’t get rickets. The truth is a level of 52 would decrease my incidence of Type 1 Diabetes by 66%, a level of 44 will drop my risk of any broken bones by more than 50%, and a level of only 33 makes me 72% less likely to even have a fall. How many elders would that save?

Every pound of fat we gain adds 1 mile of extra blood vessels that deplete our nutrients. 1 extra pound adds 3 million pounds of stress on your knees and hips.

Functional (science based) Medicine seeks to identify and treat the root cause of disease. In fact therapeutic doses of fatty acids, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, herbs or hormones can often control disease (diabetes, depression, hypertension, and all disease) as well and often better than the monster drugs pharmaceutical companies push.
The pharmaceutical Industry will never attempt to cure disease, they merely treat symptoms. By keeping our diseases, and continuing to buy their expensive drugs, they profit from our suffering. If they develop a cure they put themselves out of business but remember, these drugs are dangerous, even when used as directed. Did you know, the 3rd leading cause of death in the US is properly prescribed medications?
