Considering Vitamin-D depression and water cures connection, there are some interesting facts you need to know.
In the vitamin D research, there is a strong association between vitamin D and Depression. In obese patients there has been research that points to a relationship.
In the overweight and obese, those with low vitamin D levels had more depressive symptoms than those with higher vitamin D levels. It was further found that when vitamin D was supplemented over a period of 12 months, the symptoms were improved.
Those suffering with lupus often times have to avoid getting too much sunlight. Lupus patients are often vitamin D deficient.
Using the water cures protocol and natural sun light, you will most likely get all the vitamin D your body will need and a bit extra to store for future use (about a 2 week supply, all for free).
What the vitamin D supplement pusher don't want you to know is the dark side of D supplements.
One PubMed published paper reviewed the widespread vitamin D supplementation. There is a concern that vitamin D can cause immunomodulatory related problems, namely, predispose the population to immune dysfunction. Lifelong supplementation of vitamin D in foods just may be a contributing factor in obesity and chronic disease around us.
Note: There is no evidence that we can get too much vitamin D from the sun. Likewise, there is little evidence indicating there is any risk of overdosing on any vitamins that naturally occur in foods. Only supplements can cause overdose induced toxicity.
Connect the dots.
Sunlight helps our skin make vitamin D which is technically a steroid.
One study found that young people in Hawaii, who frequented the beach, were still vitamin D deficient.
We are getting a lot of vitamin D in processed foods and yet we still have an epidemic of obesity and chronic disease.
Vitamin D has been found to help depression.
Vitamin D is water soluble.
There is a commonality, although it is not that obvious at first glance.
First, consider that we have two oceans of water inside our body. One outside our cells and one inside our cells. Our organs, including our skin, work best when they are properly hydrated and properly nourished with essential minerals.
Why would someone who spends a lot of time in the sun not have a lot of vitamin D? What if they were dehydrated on the cellular level and they could not produce the vitamin D in their skin? It would certainly provide a viable theory for the low numbers.
Finally, why does following the water cures help so many with depression and why does it help so many different kinds of depression? For vitamin D to work effectively, we need to be properly hydrated.
Once our bodies are completely and fully hydrated, every part can function optimally. So from getting the most vitamin D from our skin exposure to the sun.
Properly hydrating our bodies will prevent overdosing on vitamin D.
Vitamin-D depression and water cures are related. Although some may benefit from vitamin D supplementation, especially the elderly, those with cardiac conditions, those who get little sun and the depressed, there may be a better way.
Simply using the water cures protocol may provide both the anti-depression properties and help the body produce more vitamin D from the sun exposure we do get during the day.
