The vaccines provoke the immune system to mobilize and the immune system’s fuel is vitamin D. Three vaccines in a short time have emptied the stores of vitamin D for many. Then they become vulnerable to new infections.

This is a translation of the article «Historisk lavt D-vitaminnivå«, written by the Norwegian journalist John Enebak. The article is free to publish.

The fuel for the immune system is vitamin D. The immune cells cannot multiply without vitamin D. The immune system will not start without vitamin D. Thsi has been shown by 40 years of continuous research. (Sources at the end of the article.)

The immune system uses a lot of vitamin D.

When the immune system mobilizes, the consumption of vitamin D increases and the level of vitamin D in the blood drops. The last year, virtually everyone has mobilized the immune system at least twice with vaccines. This affects the vitamin D status as hard as two rounds of flu. And those rounds came BEFORE the winter and the flu season.

It has never happened before that the entire population has undergone two rounds of flu during one summer. No wonder the strain on hospitals increased during last winter. And it is absolutely no wonder that covid-19 still is on the rise in April 2022.

We are doomed to have a historically low vitamin D status in the European population in the spring of 2022.

Historically low production of vitamin D.

In addition to the historically high consumption of vitamin D in the population, the production of vitamin D in the skin has also been historically low. Throughout the summer, the media has been campaigning against tanning and informing about the danger of getting skin cancer. As a result, most people have become very focused on sunscreen, which inhibits the production of vitamin D in the skin.

This summer, we registered experts who in interviews on TV and radio have directly encouraged that people should stay as little as possible in the sun. When people pull out of the sun, it does NOT contribute to the production of vitamin D in the skin.

Trips to the sunny south have also been in short supply this winter. A week on the beach in Spain produces vitamin D equivalent to one bottle of cod liver oil per. day. Most come home from the vacation with vitamin D equal to seven to 10 bottles of cod liver oil stored in the body. This year, most of this vitamin D production is missing.

The kids are most vulnerable

Have you noticed that most kids were as pale when they started school in August as they were when they went on summer vacation in june? Parents have become good at literally lubricating the kids with a sun factor of 50 when the kids are to stay in the sun. Some kids even have to wear beach coveralls, so that their skin will not be exposed to any sunshine at all.

Sunscreen, clothes and a lot of indoor screen time mean that the kids this year have had little opportunity to produce vitamin D supplements themselves in the skin. Thus, the young also enter the winter with very low vitamin D stores. 

This does not necessarily have much effect on the course of covid-19, but makes kids very vulnerable to repeated infections with bacteria and viruses throughout the winter. Low vitamin D status also causes the kids to get dry skin, eczema, poor sleep and drain them of energy.

Juveniles that have already been infected with covid-19 have also had initially reduced small amounts of vitamin D.

Vitamin D levels in infants reflect maternal vitamin D levels. Researchers who studied vitamin D levels in pregnant Masai women on the savannah of Kenya found that the pups were born with 65% of maternal vitamin D levels.

According to a study conducted by the Norwegian Institute of Marine Research , 60% of the new mothers who participated in the Norwegian study had insufficient vitamin D levels. When pregnant women are also to be vaccinated, it does not help to increase vitamin D levels in either mothers or infants.

There may be a reason why hospitals last autumn were filled with kids infected with RS virus.

Old people should get more focus

According to the Norwegian Directorate of Health, the elderly in nursing homes are a high-risk group for vitamin D deficiency. The food served in institutions is not exactly power food. The old people do not spend so many hours a year sunbathing either. In addition, the elderly are less able to utilize vitamin D.

Most seniors have now undergone three immunizations, with the first and second doses of covid vaccine and then a booster dose. After that comes the fourth beating on a worn out immune system when the nurses come to set this year’s flu vaccine.

And THEN comes covid.

We know that the immune system will not start without access to vitamin D. Then it is not difficult to calculate why it is primarily the elderly and «frail» who die of respiratory infections in the winter. It IS possible to do something about it. Give them vitamin D. Patients in nursing homes have guaranteed low levels of vitamin D.

Signs of widespread vitamin D deficiency

A somewhat peculiar sign of extensive vitamin D deficiency in the population are hairdressers who report a historically high level of hair loss. Hairdresser Siv Oldervik, who owns the salon Stas Hår og Bryn in Trondheim, Norway, tells the website MinMote.no that hair loss is something that is talked about a lot these days – both among hairdressers and customers.

– I have never seen so much hair loss as now, says the hairdresser to the website Minmote.no.

Hair loss occurs when the cells that build and maintain the hair follicles (keratinocytes) do not find enough vitamin D in the blood. Keratinocytes must, just like immune cells, find vitamin D in the blood to trigger proliferation (make new cells).

Major consequences

The leaders in the health care system deny that there is a connection between full hospitals, high sickness absence and vitamin D deficiency. They have probably missed 40 years of research that unanimously concludes that the immune system will not function without access to vitamin D.

As early as October 2021 hospitals in Norway began to be full of patients with all sorts of diagnoses. Infections from RS virus and covid-19 dominated among the admissions, according to the national media. When people get pneumonia from the common cold, then it warns of tough months until April, when the sun again begins to produce vitamin D supplements in the skin of people.

– simple solution

The solution is simple: Eat vitamin D supplements. The best way to protect your kids from snot, fever and home days from kindergarten and school is to provide them with plenty of vitamin D. The medical association Endocrine Society has a recipe for how we can cure vitamin D deficiency with daily supplements of 6,000 IU vitamin D for eight weeks.

The medical association «Endocring Society» recommends that children from 1 to 11 years of age be treated with 2,000 IU of vitamin D per day for eight weeks for vitamin D deficiency and then receive daily maintenance supplement of 800-1,000 IU vitamin D per. day as a maintenance dose. The recommendation is in chapter 3.0 of this document.

If you want a quick fix that cures the cold in a day or two, Canadian doctor Gerry Schwalfenberg has the solution: A single dose or two of 50,000 IU vitamin D to kickstart the immune system, followed by adequate daily doses to build up vitamin D storage and cure vitamin D deficiency.

«Moreover, calcitriol inhibits the proliferation of monocytes, and promotes the differentiation of monocytes to macrophages, these effects being mediated by the upregulation of Fc surface cell receptors and by an increase in cell respiration. In addition, calcitriol inhibits DC proliferation, maturation, as well as their immunostimulatory properties leading to the induction of T-reg cells. Consequently, vitamin D deficiency results in a less tolerogenic status to foreign antigens.»
