When it comes to vitamin D, I do things a little bit different than what most people do…

I started learning about vitamin D because my levels were low…

I didn’t know it at the time, but I just knew that there was something wrong with me and I didn’t know what…

I was tired all the time, would toss and turn all night and my hair was falling off in clumps…

When I went to see doctors about this, they would say there was nothing wrong with me…

“You’re crazy!”

… but I was pretty sure that what I was going through wasn’t normal…

I started reading up and came across vitamin D…

When I asked to be tested for this, they were hesitant… apparently it wouldn’t tell them anything about what was going on with me…

Turns out I was low in vitamin D and so my journey to understand vitamin D began…

The reason why I see vitamin D a little bit different than most people is because I didn’t learn about this from health books or doctors…

I learned about this from brewing beer…

I started out looking for ways to get more energy…

At first I thought I had low energy because of hypothyroidism (low thyroid function)…

… but lucky for me, I had learned about how energy is produced thanks to brewing literature…

In the book “Froth – the science of beer” by Mark Denny, I learned that energy is produced by the mitochondria as ATP… So if you ever go to the grocery store and you feel drained like you just ran a marathon, that means you are out of ATP…

So how do you produce more energy?

As I started looking into this I realized that our bodies are made up of the same cells that are described in brewing literature… they are called probiotics… yeast and bacteria… also known as our gut flora…

80% of our immune system is our gut flora…

Just like brewing beer, the health of our gut flora depends on

#1 Water
#2 Minerals
#3 pH
#4 Temperature
#5 Probiotics

Take the health of a tree for example… when all of these conditions (water, minerals, pH, temperature and bacteria) are ideal and you add a little bit of sunshine, you get growth…

That’s because when the root system of a tree is healthy it can digest nutrients in the soil and absorb those nutrients…

The body is the same way… when your gut is healthy you can digest food properly and absorb nutrients…

When you have low vitamin D, your gut flora gets weak and you can’t digest or absorb nutrients properly…

Without nutrients, you can’t grow hair, you can’t produce hormones like the sleeping hormone melatonin…

Even more important to understand is that Vitamin D activates hormones like serotonin… serotonin turns to melatonin…

Without vitamin D you get neither serotonin or melatonin…

Which is why people with low vitamin D are often experiencing depression, anxiety, poor sleep and hormone imbalances…

When you understand vitamin D you can start to improve your sleep like Ina did by going through our Bootcamps

Sleep is important, but more important is knowing that what activates the immune system is vitamin D…

If you do a search online for “Vitamin D Immune System” you’ll see that your immune system depends on vitamin D

The cells of your body are called cells because they are battery cells… they produce and store energy…

That energy is needed for growth and when it comes to the body… healing…

Your body is constantly regenerating itself… it is constantly building new cells and vitamin D is the fuel that gets these cells going and replicating…

Vitamin D increases voltage…

Low vitamin D lowers voltage… it lowers pH of the body… When the pH of your body drops you create an environment that allows bad bacteria to wake up and start eating you…

Most people try to raise their vitamin D levels by taking supplements…

Most people I talk to are taking 3,000-5,000 IU’s a day… some are taking upwards of 50,000 IU’s…

… but to me that doesn’t make sense because raising your vitamin D levels should improve your sleep and energy…

I don’t know what these supplements are made of, but as far as I’m concerned I only know of 2 ways to raise your vitamin D levels naturally…

#1 Sunshine exposure

#2 Diet

The problem with sunshine exposure is that if you have a weak immune system, chances are you have a toxic lymph system which means you’ll get sunburnt…

The problem with diet is that you need probiotics and a healthy gut to make vitamins…

All vitamins are created through the fermentation process… for that you need strong probiotics… for strong probiotics you need vitamin D…

That puts people in quite a predicament… a catch 22… because if you have low vitamin D, you likely have weak probiotics and will struggle to make vitamins in your gut…

Foods don’t have vitamins… they have the nutrients needed for probiotics to turn them into vitamins…

So even if you eat foods that “have vitamin D” like mushrooms, you won’t get vitamin D because you don’t have the right environment or strong enough probiotics to make vitamin D out of mushrooms…

Cod liver oil is another great dietary source of nutrients that would turn into vitamin D… but again, if you have weak probiotics, then you won’t get vitamin D because your digestion and nutrient absorption will be weak…

That’s why I personally used fermented cod liver oil + butter oil because the word “fermented” means that it has already been digested and vitamins have already been created…

The vitamin D in fermented cod liver oil + butter oil is what gave me that kickstart to strengthen the probiotics in my gut… strong probiotics means a strong immune system…

In our program we walk you through how to create an environment to grow probiotics in your gut…

We help you design a diet that helps you raise your vitamin D levels…
