A lot of people get sick during the winter because their vitamin D level is low? Not so! A lot of people get sick during the winter because their immune system is compromised! Low vitamin D is only an indication of a compromised immune system. Yes, you will feel better replacing D3, but that DOESN’T fixes the problem.
TB (Tuberculosis) is not a low vitamin D problem. TB is an iron toxicity and acidity problem in the lungs and surrounding area, causing bacterial infection/infestation! Taking high doses of D3 supplement will cover the problem — then make it WORSE!
The vitamin D from the sun is different from the vitamin D3 in supplements. True sunlight — the UV-B rays and others — has a strong impact in healing many diseases, including TB. In contrast, supplementing 20,000 IU of D3 (even with K2-MK7) will make you feel better, while simultaneously making your health worse. While supplemental D3 is increasing your D3 level, it is also DEPLETING your magnesium level, your vitamin A level, your copper level and your zinc level — the very things that are MOST needed with TB infection!
Vitamin D3 supplement is not candy. You cannot be supplementing 20,000 IU per day– because you just can’t. Anything over 1000 IU is toxic.
I do consume D3 supplements, but from lichens; rather than the cholecalciferol rat poison made from sheep-wool.
There are many herbs that may show promise in building back up the immune system of someone with TB. Pelargonium sidoides, aka African geranium, may be one to consider. Other immune system building herbs are guduchi, andrographis, olive leaf extract and eclipta alba. All of the aforementioned herbs have two things in common: they destroy bacteria and reduce inflammation. They are also loaded with immune support minerals.
