Vitamin D is not a vitamin, but a hormone, a fact physicians have known for about 30 years. However, we continue to call it vitamin D. Perhaps it is the biggest misnomer in recent medical history. It’s time to recognize this extremely important medical condition. Therefore, I call it exactly what it is: Hormone D Deficiency or HDD.
How common is HDD? According to conservative estimates, more than 150 million Americans have HDD. Worldwide, billions suffer from it: it is the true pandemic of our times.
Scientific evidence clearly links HDD to a wide range of serious illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, kidney disease, osteoporosis, asthma, M.S., lupus, arthritis, hyperparathyroidism, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, susceptibility to infections, depression and memory loss.
Fortunately treatment of this mother of all diseases is very effective, extremely safe and dirt cheap. Please consult my book, “Power of Vitamin D” to optimize your hormone D level without risking toxicity.
