Dr. Pierre Kory @ 44:40 “Like I said, this country needed a national vitamin D campaign. Everybody should have had their vitamin D levels checked. We should have had a replenishment protocol for everybody. That would have been one of the most simplest and safest, and one of the most potent ways to protect ourselves from the morbidity and mortality. We did not do that.”
43:40 “The only thing they recommended was Tylenol.”

2:11:05 Tulsi Gabbard: “It blew my mind during the Covid pandemic era that Jen Psaki at the White House refused to say: hey, nutrition and being healthy could actually help you. If you get Covid, that the symptoms might not be so bad.” …
2:12:24 Joe Rogan: “If they really cared, they would tell people ‘supplement with vitamin D.’ That would have been one of the first things to say. It’s cheap. It’s not hard to do. We have plenty of it. Let’s go!”
Tulsi: “And we know statistically that people are radically deficient in this country.”
Excellent, except that many don’t need to supplement with K2.
Dr. Joel Wallach is famous for his “Dead Doctors Don’t Lie” lectures, where he tells how doctors live almost 10 years less than the average person, dying from simple vitamin and mineral deficiencies, especially low copper.
Breast Cancer Risk Declined as Vitamin D Level Rose
The dose response relationship between vitamin D level and breast cancer risk is shown on the chart below. Specifically, the researchers found a 6% decrease in breast cancer risk for every 2 ng/ml (5 nmol/L) increase in vitamin D level. This translates to a 71% lower risk from 20 to 60 ng/ml (50 to 150 nmol/L).
Dr. Anne Zink TOTALLY IGNORED the peer reviewed studies that proved high enough VITAMIN D levels REDUCED the SEVERITY of Covid by 1,000-1,500%! The first such study was published early in the pandemic in April 2020.
Zink hasn’t said one word about the truth about vitamin D, which makes her RESPONSIBLE — lying by omission and commission. Few Alaskans would have died if their vitamin D levels were above 50 ng/ml, if people would have tested their D levels instead of lining up for the unreliable PCR tests that didn’t cure Covid.
The majority of Alaskans are still deficient or insufficient with levels of about 10-20 ng/ml. And Zink still says NOTHING about the main key to Covid and a main key to many health issues, longevity and DEPRESSION!
Fast acting D, calcifediol could have been used in hospitals to treat Covid late too, saving many who entered the hospital low in D.
Big Pharma is “love of money” driven, not wellness driven. They can’t patent and make $billions from vitamin D. The American Medical Association was started by John D. Rockefeller to make medicine a business model, not a wellness model.
If Pharma had told the truth about vitamin D, they couldn’t have gotten emergency use authorization for their jabs that damaged many, so they destroyed many lives in order to make ~$100 billion for Pharma.
Dr. Zink wants massive surveillance, admits officials made Covid policy ‘without the data’
Dr. Anne Zink is a formidable and controversial player when it comes to directing public healthcare policy both in Alaska and across the nation. As Alaska’s chief medical officer, she has enthusiastically and relentlessly pushed pro-Covid jab messaging. Now, as the new leader of a powerful left-leaning public policy organization, she is poised to step onto the national stage as a leading advocate for massive expansion of government health surveillance and crackdown on so-called “misinformation.”
46:05 Del Bigtree, the question: “If you’re head of Health and Human Services tomorrow, Dr. Robert Malone and maybe you guys, CDC and NIH, how should we move forward right now with all the knowledge we now have in this nation and around the world? How do we get out of this?”
49:25 Dr. Pierre Kory: “If I were ever put in charge of the response to this, first thing I would have done: a national public service campaign telling all the doctors to check the vitamin D levels of all their patients, and put them on a replenishment protocol, getting those levels above 50 [ng/ml]. If you had just done that simple thing, the government knows, and they’ve known for decades that in some estimates, 90% of our population is vitamin D deficient. And that’s deficient even according to their very low levels of vitamin D. Had we done a national vitamin D replenishment campaign , that would have changed the face of this [sweeping his hands to his sides, palms down].”Continue reading “Dr. Pierre Kory: A national VITAMIN D campaign to get levels above 50 would have changed the face of Covid!”→
“Why isn’t this on the front page of the news? … I don’t see doctors using vitamin D probably because it’s very inexpensive. … Vitamin D puts out the cytokine storm like a water hose on a fire. If you don’t have enough vitamin D and you’re going into this infection, you are really, really at risk.” – Dr. Berg, May 4, 2020
This early study, April 2020 already showed vitamin D the key to low severity from Covid! Had the study’s threshold been more optimal, 50 ng/ml instead of 30 ng/ml for ‘normal’), deaths would have been closer to nil.
A study I read recently talked about how vitamin D levels could be linked to depressed teens. A few symptoms linked to a vitamin D deficiency are sadness, hopelessness, loss of interest, loss of concentration, and even thoughts of suicide.
Potential causes of a vitamin D deficiency in teens:
• Not getting enough sun
• Not consuming enough vegetables (not enough magnesium)
• Snacking (insulin resistance blocks vitamin D)
• A high carb diet (fructose blocks vitamin D)
• Obesity (increases the need for vitamin D)
• Darker skin blocks vitamin D absorption
Other symptoms of a vitamin D deficiency:
• Achy joints
• Low back pain
17:45 “One indication to know that you are deficient in vitamin D is just to press on your sternum, your breastbone here, or on your shin, and if you have pain, it’s a good way to know you are deficient, because lacking vitamin D causes bone pain — and especially pain in your lower back.”
“Vitamin D is not really a vitamin. It’s a hormone, and it’s been extensively studied. Just doing a real quick search on PubMed, there’s over 64,000 studies or reviews on vitamin D.”
Vitamin D affects certain organs and tissues, including the:
3. Scalp and skin
5. Thymus gland
6. Immune system
12. Adrenal glands
19. Reproductive organs
Vitamin D is essential to support a healthy body, but most people are low in vitamin D.
The RDAs for vitamin D are 600 IU. These RDAs are based on preventing bone loss. However, vitamin D has many other functions that go way beyond bone health.
I believe the average person should have around 10,000 IU of vitamin D daily. This could be a good maintenance dose, but if you have certain conditions, you may need more.
It’s nearly impossible to get the amount of vitamin D you need from your diet alone. You have to be largely dependent on the sun for vitamin D.
Factors that can negatively affect vitamin D absorption:
• Low stomach pH
• Gut inflammation
• Kidney problems
• Liver problems
• Bile deficiency
• Insulin resistance
• Gastric bypass surgery
• Low diversity of microbes
• High stress
• A low-fat diet
• Certain medications
• Inability to swallow large capsules
• Darker skin types
• Living further from the equator
• The winter months
• Low magnesium, zinc, or K2
• Not spending enough time outdoors
The best ways to boost vitamin D:
1. Get one hour of sun per day [if sun angle is above 45°]
2. Take vitamin D with fat or a meal that contains enough magnesium and zinc
3. Do keto and intermittent fasting
4. Consume more fatty fish or cod liver oil
5. Take vitamin D in liquid form
6. Consume more vitamin D (if a genetic factor is preventing absorption)
7. Increase your bile
FLCCC is including calcifediol (fast acting D) in their early Covid treatment protocol, which the body can use right away if sick from Covid, unlike Vitamin D3, which can take many weeks to build up to high enough levels, and can be hard to digest if seriously ill from Covid; though, extra high doses of D3 can be used if calcifediol isn’t available for those seriously ill from Covid.
Dosing recommendations for Vitamin D…. The optimal target is over 50 ng/ml; at this level the risk of dying from COVID-19 is extremely reduced. It may take many months or years to achieve optimal levels in patients who are extremely Vitamin D deficient.
‘Normal’ vitamin D blood level is now considered to be 30-100 ng/ml, with 80-100 ng/ml optimum for overall health, all-cause mortality, resistance to serious Covid and depression. – ed
Amounts of vitamin D you may want to consider taking: • For maintenance: 10,000-20,000 IUs
• For therapeutic purposes (short term use): 20,000-50,000 IUs
Vitamin D toxicity is very rare. But, vitamin D deficiency or insufficiency is extremely common. 65% of the population has a vitamin D deficiency, and 95% of the population has a vitamin D insufficiency.
Seven warning signs of a vitamin D deficiency: 1. High blood pressure 2. Low back pain 3. High blood sugar 4. High susceptibility to viruses 5. Autoimmune conditions 6. Daytime sleepiness 7. Depression
24:00 “A black individual would need to be in a sun tanning bed probably more than ten times longer to make the same amount of vitamin D.”
26:00 Aging: “A 70-year-old will make about 25-30% of vitamin D that a 20-year-old will make.”
28:00 Toxicity: Canadian study showed taking 20,000 iu/day no toxicity and 60-80 ng/ml: “We did a study with a group up in Canada, and showed that taking up to 20,000 units a day, blood levels with 60-80 ng/ml; there was no toxicity.” 100,000 iu/day for extended periods can cause toxicity.
Holick takes 6,000 iu/day year-round with 70-80 ng/ml.
Says to keep taking D in summer.
34 Breast milk has “no” vitamin D unless mother has enough D, about 6,000 iu/day.
C-section reduced with enough D.
38 2,000 iu for infants shows less type 1 diabetes
On this Episode Doctor Michael Hanifen and myself discuss the changing political landscape in Anchorage. With covid in the mix, it’s anybody’s guess as to what we will see next.
4:30 Studies show that people with low vitamin D levels had bad Covid outcomes
8:50 Covid affected Black and Brown communities more because dark skin protects body from the rays that produce vitamin D, and nobody is talking about it! Big Pharma, Big Government and Big Media claim to care about Black lives, then don’t say a word to the Blacks about the need to take vitamin D at all for Covid. Blacks have died at twice the rate of Whites with Covid. Almost all of the Whites who died were severely vitamin D deficient also.
