Vitamin of the month - Vitamin D

Sunlight is necessary to make Vit D3, which is produced under the skin.   Small amounts of Vit D are found in oily fish, eggs, sweet potato, vegetable oils, milk, beef and liver and Swiss cheese.   Herbs that contain Vit D are nettles, alfalfa and parsley.

We need sufficient sunlight to synthesise Vit D and it is a common deficiency particularly as we lose more daylight hours as we move into winter.   In kinesiology we can test to see if you need Vit D.

Why do we need enough VIT D?  It maintains strong bones and teeth, helps support the immune system (therefore prevents many diseases), maintains normal muscle function and is needed for healthy thyroid function.

What is balanced natural health?

This is what it means to me....We are not in pain, we sleep well and soundly, we digest well,  we are drug free, we feel able to cope with life’s stresses and strains.   We have a greater awareness, we make choices out of love not fear, we can express ourselves, we do not hold on to the past hurts and frustrations, we can let go when we need to.   We feed our body with nourishing foods that nurture us, we drink lots of water, we boost ourselves when we need to with supplements.  We are grounded and centred. Our energy flows well.   We value, love and appreciate ourselves.  We feel well,  we feel good and we feel happy.
