Vitamin D and Treatments for Hair Loss and how this is connected to health and your immune system, what the experts have to say:
- “Current research has implicated vitamin D deficiency as a major factor in the pathology of at least 17 varieties of cancer as well as heart disease, stroke, hypertension, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, depression, chronic pain, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, muscle weakness, muscle wasting, birth defects, periodontal disease, and more.” – The Vitamin D Council
- “Because vitamin D is so cheap and so clearly reduces all-cause mortality, I can say this with great certainty: Vitamin D represents the single most cost-effective medical intervention in the United States.” – Dr. Greg Plotnikoff, Medical Director, Penny George Institute for Health and Healing, Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis.
- “Sunlight is more powerful than any drug; it is safe, effective, and available free of charge. If it could be patented, it would be hyped as the greatest medical breakthrough in history. It’s that good.” – Mike Adams, author
- “This is like the Holy Grail of cancer medicine; vitamin D produced a drop in cancer rates greater than that for quitting smoking, or indeed any other countermeasure in existence.” – Dennis Mangan, clinical laboratory scientist
- “In all my many years of practice of medicine, I’ve never seen one vitamin, even vitamin C, have such profound effects on human health.” – Dr Soram Khalsa, board-certified internist and medical director for the East-West Medical Research Institute
- “Vitamin D insufficiency and deficiency is a worldwide public health problem in both developed and developing nations…. Nearly one billion people worldwide are deficient.” – EurekaAlert

Daily requirements for vitamin D are around 800–1000 IU, but larger doses are needed for patients who are already deficient. For moderate deficiency, that is 15–25 nmol/L, oral supplementation with 3000–5000 IU daily for 6–12 weeks can be used to replete stores followed by a maintenance dose of 1000–2000 IU per day. Vitamin D status should be assessed 3–4 months after commencing treatment as vitamin D is stored in fat and muscle and there is a lag time before normalisation of serum concentrations. http://www.australianprescriber.com/magazine/33/4/103/6 Bischoff-Ferrari HA, Dawson-Hughes B, Staehelin HB, Orav JE, Stuck AE, Theiler R, et al.
