Vitamin D

Posted in General, Health

Vitamin D: Did you Know? It is needed in the intestine for the absorption of dietary calcium. It has also been found to be important in protecting the body from a wide range of diseases. This long list of diseases could be linked to vitamin D deficiency: several forms of cancer, stroke, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, osteomalacia, some autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and type 1 diabetes, and even type 2 diabetes, depression and schizophrenia. How do we help prevent vitamin D deficiency? Well most of us already know, adequate sunshine, of course. I happen to think sunshine is so invigorating. It can really change my ho hum attitude attitude into a happy one. I don’t need to see documentation, a little walk out side can really give me a boost. (Sunscreen and or having yourself completely covered can block the adequate exposure to the sun.) Cod liver oil, good quality only, and or other supplementation.  Routine vitamin D screening has been rcommended as part of an annual physical.

Though I attend several of her classes, where Darla truly shines is as a personal trainer and
health coach. She saw where I was, and helped me to get where I wanted to be, even though I
wasn’t sure I was communicating it clearly. After just a year my Dr. was amazed to report my
bone density had improved, and my overall health was enhanced. Darla keeps training fresh,
challenging, and enjoyable; and she is always supportive and encouraging. During this time of
sheltering I have been continuing my training sessions via Skype, and her eagle eye doesn’t
miss a thing…still correcting my form and pushing me to go beyond where I thought I could go.
Thank you doesn’t seem nearly enough for someone who got me back on a positive health track
that has enriched body, mind and spirit. But thank you anyway, Darla.
