Aches and Pains and Vitamin D...
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Health Queen

Hi Ginny,

While I am not saying that you HAVE arthritis, joint pain can be a SYMPTOM of arthritis and there is definitely some evidence that vitamin D deficiency can cause Osteoarthritis as well as being a risk factor for the development of Rheumatoid Arthritis and can simply cause muscle and joint pain as well.

You can read up on the Vitamin D Research on that here if you like research.

For one thing, you may want to switch to Vitamin D3 Supplements as opposed to the prescription Vitamin D2 supplements that your doctor gave you.

Vitamin D2, the stuff that is in ALL prescription supplements has been called Unsuitable For Supplementation by many researchers and I'm not sure why doctors in the US prescribe it, other than because of 'habit'.

Then, if your level is corrected to the OPTIMAL range of between 40 to 80 ng/ml and your pain is gone, then HURRAY, it was because of Vitamin D deficiency. If your pain is NOT gone, then you need to begin to look elsewhere as well.

The first place that I would look is your fatty acid intake. Are you getting enough Omega 3 Fatty Acids? If not, then you may want to add an Omega 3 Fatty Acid Supplement and/or High Vitamin Butter Oil which contains something called 'Factor X' that is known as the 'anti stiffness factor'.

The vast majority of Americans are Omega 3 fatty acid deficient and this causes a HUGE amount of problems- from joint pain to heart disease. So it's really a good practice to get a lot more Omega 3's anyway- and they are generally pretty hard to get in a general diet.

There are a LOT more things that can cause joint pains and arthritis, but that is a MINIMAL start, so try those out and if you still have your joint pains then come on back and we'll go into some more solutions for your joint pains.
