The Vitamin D Cure: Drop the Pounds and Feel Great, Stay Younger Longer, Reduce Pain and Prevent Disease

While I’m not looking to lose weight right now, I am concerned with the health of my growing baby.   I recently read The Vitamin D Cure and have found some benefits for the growth of my baby, as well as my overall health and losing weight after the baby comes.

How Vitamin D Helps Pregnancy and Children of Different Ages:

  • Sufficient vitamin D during pregnancy and my child’s early childhood helps prevent infections, osteoporosis, autoimmune diseases and cancer in my child.
  • The book complains that breast feeding isn’t sufficient in itself for obtaining the baby’s necessary vitamin D. As an expecting mother, I need to get sufficient vitamin D myself for the baby’s benefit.
  • Benefits and aids in exercise of adults and children and during pregnancy.

How Vitamin D Helps With Over All Health

  • Boosts your exercise benefits and vice versa.  Included in the book are exercises for better health and pain relief.
  • Improves blood pressure, mood and memory.
  • Decreases obesity and breast cancer risk.

Also Included in the Vitamin D Cure

  • Facts about Vitamin D Cure that I didn’t already know, such as how other vitamins work with and increase or reduce Vitamin D’s effect and how alkaline foods (fruits and vegetables) must be balanced with acidic foods (pasta meat, nuts, cheese, etc.) to refrain from losing calcium, potassium and magnesium.
  • Meal plans and recipes.
  • How to determine and supplement your Vitamin D needs.

One Gripe

  • I don’t like the encouragement to use tanning beds.


Most realistic diet books will tell you to eat healthier and exercise to lose weight.  This book is a realistic book that goes beyond that and into the importance of Vitamin D.  My weight gain over the years indicates a possible lack of Vitamin D.  Looking back, I see a gradual increase in my weight when I stopped drinking Vitamin D milk with breakfast.

Getting more Vitamin D in my diet recently may be the very cause I’ve become pregnant after being diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome 6 years ago.

I’m curious to see how my health improves as I use the advice found in this book to increase my levels of Vitamin D to the recommended amount.

  1. I get my Vit D from sitting in the sun every day – but whether I get enough is another question. I have just started to take Mage B as that helps the brain and can help with things like dementia down the track.

    But I would never recommend tanning beds – EVER – I live in Australia and they are banned in some areas as they are known to lead to skin cancer. They are very dangerous. Did the book recommend tanning beds?
