Vitamin D and Back Pain
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Russ,

Of course I am going to say that you should maximize your vitamin d intake. But I DON'T recommend you to take ANY vitamin d- until you get your level drawn.

Then you should follow the instructions on the Vitamin D Deficiency Treatment to get your numbers into the optimal Vitamin D Level.

The danger with telling you how much to take, even if it seems like a lot, is that you still end up SEVERELY deficient. In fact, if you take a look at my Vitamin D Requirements page, at the bottom, Dr. Joseph Pizzorno says that, in his experience with a group of close to 2000 Canadians, says, "...a loading dose of 10,000 IU's for 3 months and maintenance of 5000 IU's is not enough [Vitamin D] for most people in northern climes..."

So, I wouldn't be doing right by you to recommend ANYTHING because it's not likely to be nearly enough!! And really, the connection between Vitamin D and Pain, and SPECIFICALLY back pain, is SOOO strong, that your back pain actually COULD be simply due to Vitamin D Deficiency and have absolutely NOTHING to do with your ruptured disk!!

Back Pain Continued...

I know that sounds CRAZY and your ruptured disk is 'Proof' that your back pain is caused by the ruptured disk, right? Not necessarily. It could be simply vitamin d deficiency causing the pain- and it could be that the ruptured disk is 'Incidental' and is NOT causing you pain at all!!

There are THOUSANDS of people out there with herniated disks that have NO PAIN. Until recently, they never actually did MRI's on people with no back pain as 'Controls' against people WITH back pain. And guess what? There is NO correlation between back pathology and pain!!

I highly recommend that you read the seminal book Healing Back Pain by Dr. John Sarno, who hypothesized that the majority of back pain is due to a condition called TMS.

John Stossel of 20/20 was so impressed with this work that he used Dr. Sarno's techniques to heal HIS back pain and did a 20/20 special on it. You can see it TMS Wiki Here.

And my PERSONAL experience with this technique is with my husband. He was visiting his parents and ended up with excruciating back pain after a Jiu-Jitsu class and ended up on unable to move.

After a week of inability to move, he had an MRI that showed, guess what? An L5-S1 ruptured disk. The neurologist told him that he would likely become impotent and lose bladder control if he didn't have emergency surgery ASAP!!


I immediately made him read Healing Back Pain and within a day or two he was noticeably improved. Within a couple of months he was mostly pain free (no rehab, no surgery at all!!) and two years later, he's still virtually pain free. You can confirm this story if you want to contact him on his website, The Tendonitis Expert.
