    I got the Readers Digest this week and found this article on Vitamin D. I found it on line for the ones that do not subscribe to Readers Digest. You can find it at:

    PS Don't forget at the bottom to read all 6 pages of the article.

    I sure hope you all will read this as it is so helpful to us all.

    Very good information, I'm one who believes this all to be very true living here in the north. I do feel so much better when out in the sunshine so even in winter try to get out and walk on a sunny day.

    My PA told me about this a few months ago. Her rheumy doc husband prescribes it for all his pain patients here in Michigan for help with pain and mood. He recommends 2,000 mgs. daily to begin. Blood levels should be monitored.

    Yes I think it is a wonderful way help all of us. I haven't had my D levels tested but I started the Vitamin D today. I used to take it and then stopped for no reason. I will not stop this time LOL They said it was good for high blood presure and arthritis also. My hip and knees hurt terrible!

    Shirley,
    I'm so glad you loved this state when you visited, I moved here some 23 years ago and have stayed here longer than any place in my life and love it too. Where did you visit when here?
