Here is My Question:
Please post regarding this Coimbra high dose Vitamin D protocol. 95% shut down activity seems really great. Why isn't this talked about more? Or is this another vein surgery gimmick?
Thank you so much for this website and the help you all provide.
Recommendations for Vitamin D3 supplementation in MS patients will remain unchanged until further studies are completed.
Generally, most MS specialists continue to recommend 2,000 IU to 10,000 IU daily in order to achieve a total 25 hydroxy (OH) Vitamin D level between 40 and 60 ng/ml (same as 100 to 150 nmoles/lt). It may be more beneficial to achieve higher levels but this is not yet proven.
It should be noted that Dr. Coimbra has published no studies on his high dose vitamin D protocol involving MS patients.
There are however, numerous Vitamin D studies underway in Europe and the United States, so stay tuned.
