If you cannot readily get medical treatment, consider Alternative Med such as vitamin D

Questions to ask yourself about surgery and drugs

Can I get the surgery soon?
Can I afford the medical treatment ?
Am I young enough to have the surgery?
Am I healthy enough for the surgery?
Do I have access to a medical facility?
Can I tolerate the drugs prescribed?
   If you answered yes to ALL of the above, then do get the standard surgery/drug, but consider augmenting with Alternative Medicine

If you answered no to any of the above, then consider Alternative Medical options, such as

Get a high level of vitamin D (as supplements or lots of time in the sun)
Take supplements appropriate for the medical problem
Lose weight
Eat better
Reduce stress
Use medical tourism (typically 1/3 but can be as low as 1/10 the cost in the US)
Physical Therapy, Feldenkrais, Yoga
Hypnosis, NLP
Whole Body Vibration (reduce falls)
Use an air cleaner (improve breathing)
Use Low Level Laser Therapy reduce lymph build-up etc.

I (Henry Lahore) have tried and used many alternative medical options, such as the ones above.
Only vitamin D has provided me, and many others, with powerful and quick treatment for a wide variety of problems
Others also believe that vitamin D is great

Having lots of vitamin D

  • reduces many chronic pains
  • allows the body the heal itself of some diseases
  • reduces the progress of some diseases
  • apparently increases many different “growth factors”, which help in healing

How much is a high level of vitamin D?

Minimum of 40 nanograms, preferably 50 nanograms and perhaps > 80 nanograms.

How to go about getting lots of vitamin D (under medical supervision if you can afford it)

  1. Make sure you are not allergic to vitamin D
    take perhaps a single 1,000 IU dose and watch for an allergic reaction in the next few days
  2. Take a loading dose of vitamin D to get your vitamin D level high as soon as possible
    Example: 20,000 IU vitamin D3 daily for a month (consider 40,000 daily if obese)

Cofactors– to increase the effectiveness of the vitamin D and balance the body
For some people the body becomes unbalanced if vitamin D is increased and cofactors such as Magnesium are not increased at the same time.

Risk Summary – approximate

1 in 10,000 people get too much vitamin D: >150 ng Toxic
1 in 50 people: vitamin D level did not get high enough
1 in 20 people: imbalance by not taking cofactors

How this web page came to exist May 2012

This idea started from my noticing the 6-12 month waits Canadians have for surgery.
I thought that some Canadians should trying getting lots of vitamin D to relieve pain while waiting and perhaps get some treatment.
Ken, my 99 year-old father-in-law, thought that I should extend the concept to those who are too old to get surgery.
Then I considered the half of the world who cannot afford medical treatment.
Then . . then . .then . . . this web page

Canadians wait many weeks: first see the doctor, then more weeks to see the specialist


Percentage of people having to wait more than 6 days - many countries


Vitamin D might eliminate the pain and occasionally eliminate the need for the medical treatment

400,000 IU of vitamin D reduced adult pain and improved quality of life – March 2014
