On the cover, the book promises to help you lose weight, feel great, stay younger longer, reduce pain and prevent disease--a tall order for a vitamin D supplement. But this excellent book provides an approach to health that emphasizes the need for proper nutrients, proper diet and regular exercise. The authors show that adjusting your diet, making sure you are getting the proper amounts of vitamins and adding some exercise to your routine really can make you feel better and decrease your chances of contracting many debilitating diseases from arthritis to cancer to depression.
The Vitamin D Cure is elegant in its simplicity, but not necessarily easy. Dr. Dowd describes how he happened upon the importance of vitamin D to good health almost by accident when he moved from Texas, where there's lots of sunshine, to Michigan, where there's not as much. After successfully raising his own vitamin D level, he began to routinely test patients in his practice at the Arthritis Institute of Michigan for vitamin D levels and found many of them had very low levels. He has scientifically gathered data on many patients and found that they felt better with vitamin D supplements and diet changes.
As most of us probably realize, diet has a significant effect on our health. The authors prescribe a diet that is a 3:1 ratio of fresh produce to lean meat.Read more ›
