Femmemuscle, I'll try this method. So it gives you energy all day? I really need to get on this.


You likely need a B Complex/stress supplement in addition to D3.  D-ribose is also a good way to get added energy.  If you have a sluggish thyroid
or adrenal fatigue consider Lugol's/iodine. If you are very low consider taking 10000iu daily. 


Thanks, sometimes I think my thyroid is crazy but I can't afford to get the test done. I do have b12 so I'll be more consistent taking them.

Thank you ladies for the additional information. I will see this week what the new levels are, but I am now going to make sure I take my doses with food/fat.

I remember before I left the states I had a ultra sound/pap smear and I had a nice-sized fibroid..My stream would slant side ways. When I moved to Spain...it was sunny nearly everyday and I was out in it all the time..I don't wear sunblock and I noticed after spending time there my stream no longer slanted side ways. I already knew I was Vitamin D deficient because I couldn't drink milk in the states...so I had to take Magnesium supplements with Vitamin D and Calcium. Be sure you are taking a supplement with the Magnesium because that works hand in hand with the Vitamin D and Calcium as well. Anyways, the sun is pretty consistent where I live in China and I eat a lot of seaweed, which has magnesium, calcium in it...I should still take some supplements in addition...but so far, so good with me. I know when I do return to the states I will definitely be back on my supplements and I will be drinking Black Strap Molasses tea..so thanks for that info. I think the black folks up north suffer the most due to lack of sun ...well I know coming from Seattle we rarely saw the sun so I definitely was hurting there..over in NY/NJ it wasn't too bad, but I was on supplements heavy..I just noticed the biggest improvement living near the Mediterranean.

Thanks for your tips! Vitamin deficiency really effect hair loss and growth.
So for healthy hairs, you must have healthy diet ( Protein rich diet), proper sleep and stress free. Also for vitamin D, you can take proper sun heat.Else vitamin D rich diet can help for the same.

Ladies please don't forget about this vitamin.

I live in an area of elevation/harsh climates and winter 9 months out of the year.  Thus, there's hardly enough sun.. What's worse is "elevation".. living above sea level, the sun seems to "go overboard" on our skin when it's exposed..

All i can say is anyone living at sea level + gets lots of sun all year round?  you're very, very lucky, indeed.

Research has indicated it makes no difference if you have a monthly dose as an injection, take it weekly in one dose, in a few doses a week or every day. Simply because Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin.  They have researched having larger doses less frequently but they don't work as Vitamin D's half-life is about 30 days.

I was tested in January and found to have a level just under 7ng/ml.  I was eventually put on a dose of 60,000 IU of D3 per week  as 20,000IU tablets.

Apart from my hair falling out last April and continuing to fall out my symptoms where:
  • Acne
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle weakness
  • Leg pain in my shins and thighs
  • Back ache
  • Knee and ankle pain - so bad that I didn't get out of bed on some days
  • Foot pain - I had to put insoles in my shoes so they didn't hurt my feet and could walk, and that was in flat shoes. I couldn't wear heels.
  • A couple of my toes felt like they were broken
  • Tingling in my hands and arms
  • Breathlessness when trying to walk down the road
  • Nails with horizontal ridges that kept breaking or splitting half way up the nail bed

When I mentioned some of my initial symptoms to my doctor his response was to say there was nothing wrong with me.  It was a nurse at the practice who decided I may be Vitamin D deficient and test me.

When I took my tablets for the first nine weeks I was in a lot of pain.  The leg and joint pain was actually worse and I ended up staying in bed for 2 days at a time.  No-one warns you about this but it's worth knowing. 

As well as taking Vitamin D tablets I also take a multivitamin with Iron. As my Iron level was slightly lower than normal. Though 2/3 times I'm tested my Iron level is slightly low.
