The solar-powered cure for infection

Big Pharma wants billions of dollars in YOUR money to develop new ways to fight infections.

But one of the best ways to beat disease – including potentially deadly bacterial infections – just might be something that’s available right outside your home for FREE.

It’s the sun!

I know that sounds wacko. If the sun could beat disease, we’d NEVER get sick – especially in summer.

But most folks don’t get nearly the sun they need to make enough disease-beating vitamin D.

Now, a new study shows what you get along with high levels of the sunshine vitamin: a turbo-charged immune system with the power to zero in on killer bacteria and wipe them out long before they ever have a chance to make you sick.

In the new study, volunteers given relatively high doses of vitamin D showed absolutely stunning changes in the bacteria in the upper gastrointestinal tract.

Their levels of bad bacteria – the ones that lurk inside you, waiting for a chance to make you sick – plunged, including Pseudomonas, Escherichia (the “E” in E. coli) and Shigella.

These are ALL germs that are increasingly resistant to antibiotics!

The bacteria weren’t attacked by the D3 directly – they were wiped out by a sunshine-powered immune system!

The D3 seemed to boost the number of a certain type of T cell, or immune system cells that seek out and destroy infected cells. That same process also slashes your levels of inflammation, another major risk factor for infection (as well as chronic disease).

Now, all the talk on this study I’ve seen is on how these folks were given “mega” doses of vitamin D.

Hogwash.

The maximum daily dose was less than 10,000 IU per day, and after a month that amount was cut in half, or just under 5,000 IU per day.

In other words: what most naturopathic docs will tell you is the MINIMUM you should be getting – which isn’t even “high” at all.

It used the very levels many health-conscious Americans are already getting every day!

The best way to get your D is completely free: Get out under the sun. Your body can convert UV rays into 10,000 IU of vitamin D per day in as little as 15 or 20 minutes, depending on the time of year, where you are, and how much skin you’re showing (for maximum D, show as much as you can without getting arrested).

You don’t need sunscreen. Just be sure to get inside before you get burned.

Since there are so many variables that can affect D production, take a supplement daily as well. If you get plenty of sunshine, you may need a lower dose.

If you don’t get much, you’ll need a higher one.

Your doc can help figure out where you stand and how much you need.
