Vitamin D and Allergies: More Vitamin D is better

Saturday, March 05, 2011

Yesterday I read that children with low vitamin D were vulnerable to higher levels of allergies, according to some of the lastest research. I am about to soak up more Vitamin D the natural way, just in case the supplement I have been taking isn't enough. I'm not a child obviously, but I do think that Vitamin D and allergy/asthma connection could be an indicator for adults as well.

Mostly what I know at this moment is that I am sneezing a whole lot as cherry blossom season starts to ramp up, the peak now several days early before April 3rd. The blossoms aren't here yet, but I do have the realization that I may be contending with allergies more than I expected, despite allergy shots and anithistamine.

I'm grateful to be heading out to absorb more Vitamin D, but I also would welcome relief from allergies, even though they are still much less than last year. I also would welcome my right ear healing so that I can hear and swim. Let's hear it for the sunshine vitamin.

And I haven't forgotten about the advice from the nutritionist who said that going vegan for two years could eliminate allergies for good. That seems like the rainbow above the clouds right now!

(I should note that I already take at least 3,000 of Vitamin D daily after Dr. Andrew Weil's report that 2,000 was a more likely dosage, higher for those who are very overweight or obese.)

    Thanks for posting this. Just another reason being vegan rocks. I have absolutely miserable allergies to everything outside. Summer is torture because grass is probably the thing I'm the most allergic too. Looks like I might need to up my vitamin D.

    I was diagnosed with lacking Vitamin D in December.
Since then I took liquid D and have been running outside since.
get tested again in a couple months.

    The sun is shining there? I'm so jealous. It's cloudy, cold and snowy here today. At least the snow isn't sticking and it's just blowing around like crazy. Enjoy your day out and soak up some D for me too.

Just remember to take calcium to help your body absorb all that Vit D.
