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.)
