Hey guys, Axe here. I want to talk aboutthe many benefits of vitamin D as well as vitamin D deficiency. So many people are strugglingwith vitamin D deficiency. In fact, according to a lot of medical studies today, they'reshowing that quite possibly the top deficiency we have in America is a vitamin D deficiency,and for a lot of us there are several reasons for that. But let me talk about the symptomsof vitamin D deficiency. I'm then going to get into what's causing vitamin D deficiency,then go over the best foods, supplements and things you can do to correct this type ofissue. But first and foremost, the big thing thatcan cause or the big symptoms you might have
with a vitamin D deficiency are immune issues.If you have a weakened immune system, that could be correlated with a vitamin D deficiency.If you have candida or bacterial overgrowth, it can be caused from a vitamin D deficiency.If you struggle with let's say emotional ups and downs, like depression and anxiety, thatcan be a cause. Hormone imbalance, major cause of vitamin D deficiency. If you have troubleputting on muscle or losing weight, those are all correlated with a vitamin D deficiency.If you have weak bones or teeth, osteoporosis or osteopenia, those are warning signs youhave a vitamin D deficiency. So again, you can see there are a lot of things and I didn't even get into certain other
things like cancer and diabetes and heartdisease but those are all warning signs you could have a vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D is responsible for really supportinga healthy immune response, digestive health, hormone balance, and here's a key thing toremember. Vitamin D is not just a vitamin. It's also a pro hormone. So it's responsiblefor so many hormone producing reactions within your body. You've got to have vitamin D. Now here are the biggest causes of vitaminD deficiency. Number one is not getting enough sunlight. The sun should be your number onesource of vitamin D. We live in a world today
where we live inside, especially if you'rein the northern states, whether it be in Canada or northern US or northern Europe. But ifyou are not getting outside enough and not getting enough direct sunlight on your skin,that will create a vitamin D deficiency. So starting off, the majority of people are vitaminD deficient because we don't get outside enough. And the other thing can be certain chemicals,especially things that are plastic in nature, those can block vitamin D absorption. So ifyou're drinking out of plastic bottles that have something called BPA, that's bisphenolA, that can cause vitamin D deficiency and really affect the way vitamin D is absorbedand utilized and created by your liver in
your body. The other thing is toxicity. If you're exposedto toxins on a regular basis, that affects the liver. Your liver is actually responsiblefor producing and creating vitamin D within your body. So again, toxicity another majorcause of vitamin D deficiency. So if you want to start to correct vitaminD deficiency and see improvements in your immune function, in your metabolism, in yourhormones and things like your thyroid and your adrenal glands and improving your overallmood and bone strength, you've got to get more vitamin D.
Again, your number one source by far is sunlight.I recommend getting outside 20 minutes to 30 minutes every single day. Even if it'scold outside, getting a little bit of sun on your face and hands, it's so importantfor getting Vitamin D. So again, number one is get sunlight 20 to 30 minutes a day. Now, apart from that, certain foods will containsmall amounts of vitamin D. Number one source will be wild caught salmon or fish, so againgetting wild caught fish on a regular basis. Also, raw fermented milk, like a goat's milkyogurt, may have small amounts of vitamin D, as will mushrooms and eggs. But again,you're going to get very small amount in diet.
My Vaginal Discharge Smells Like Vinegar
My vaginal discharge smells like vinegar. Discharge is normally a little acidic andsmells a little like vinegar. We'll just say the smell is bad enough tobe more than normal. Fortunately, the cause of that isn't asfishy as it sounds, I mean smells. It is a little fishy, yes, but I'm not usedto it smelling like this. If you were used to yeast infections, youeither have a depressed immune system or diabetes. I know out of control diabetes means highblood sugar. I didn't think it could cause too much yeast in my own body.
It could also be because you're pregnant.The immune system decreases in some regards while pregnant to not harm the baby, raisingthe odds of a yeast infection. I don't think I'm pregnant. If the vaginal discharge smells bad and lookslike curds, you have a yeast infection. It is also more likely if the itching is bad,skin is red and it hurts when you pee or have sex. If I had that many symptoms, I wouldn'tbe having sex. You could also have bacterial vaginosis.
Just what I need, a social disease. You could have thick discharge that smellsmore than usual due to bacterial overgrowth of the bacteria normally there and it isn'tclassified as a social disease. So how could I treat ité Don't douche like you might do, since thosecleansings actually worsen the normal bacterial balance. And you need yogurt That sounds like a fancy new age treatment,up there with herbs and lotions in my underwear. You eat the yogurt to help restore your body'sbacterial balance. There are some people who
do put yogurt up there, but it isn't recommended,though tea tree oil is. Drinking herbal teas is supposed to treateverything. What else can I doé Make sure you wipe front to back when youpoop so there isn't any bacteria making it from back to front. Any other ideas of what could be causing thisé It could be something sexually transmitted,especially if the cervical mucus is yellow or green or streaked with blood. I suppose the blood would be from lesionsor sores.
Yes, and you'll want to see a forany social disease. And it can be mistaken for a yeast infection, since the itching,burning and so forth are similar unless someone actually looks at it. Which is pretty much impossible for me unlessI reach the next level in yoga. You can try over the counter yeast infectiontreatments and diet changes, but if you have more than four in a year or it resists treatment,you need to see a .
