If you have back pain have you tried boosting your Vitamin D ?
A woman who had had back pain for over 20 years found that the pain went away after 2 weeks of high dose Vitamin D. Similarly, there are many people with Fibromyalgia who find that boosting their Vitamin D helps
Some people find that their back pain is seasonal. Since the Vitamin D in our bodies from the sun is at its lowest in January, February and March the New Year is the time of year in which back pain is often the worst
What is your experience ?
Boosting your Vitamin D has 2 advantages. It increases the strength of your muscles as well as helping your bones to grow stronger. This will help you take a little more exercise, which will also speed up the improvement.
You may wish to take a large Loading Dose for a few days to see if it works and provide faster relief.
How much should you take ?
