Vitamin D – The lowest hanging fruit for Covid-era health, rarely picked

Hello Dear Reader,

We’ve been back for three weeks now and we are pleased to present our third video in this weekly Covid series, once again drawing on the vast medical commons that is so rich online. The first video uncovered conflict of interest in media reporting. The second drew on scientists with alternative analysis to what’s reported in the corporatised media. Now we are excited to share this third story with you as we believe it is essential information to hold in our community Covid toolkits. In this video (11 mins) we take a look at the overwhelming scientific literature pointing towards the importance of vitamin D in the unfolding Covid story, and the conspicuous absence of government health advice about vitamin D deficiency and its ‘predictor’ relationship to Covid-19 morbidity and mortality.

Well, we hope you enjoyed this video as much as we did making it. Please find below the articles we drew upon to make this video and please let us know what you think in the comments.

    hey you mob, hope yr travelling well… i didnt watch the video yet but i keep getting those learnings from this time— vitamin d- isnt that about being outside- other learnings have been about caring for each other, living locally and close to ground and growing food… sadly so many don’t have those opportunities and privileges…

    1. Hello Trace,
      Lovely to hear from you. It is good to be home in the hearth of community, be cared for and be caring for others. Look forward to you watching the video. Sending it with love as gift.

    Thank you for all the information you give us. I hope that one day our paths shall cross. 15-20 mins out in the sun, go pick the weeds – to eat of course, this should help us. Blessed be.

    1. Hey, yeah we also heard 20 minutes is the minimum time for the skin to start making vit D. We’re sure it’s more complex than that but nothing like some good ol fashion intuition and listening to our sensorial world. Way too much Prometheus, not enough Epimetheus or Pandora.

  8. Christiane Rostek says:

    Thank you very much for this interesting video! Feeling more and more like an ‘outlaw’ whithout vaccination… the pressure from outside it’s getting higher and higher… and sometimes I am full of doubts! But I try to hear of my intuition, eat our own eggs and vegetables and most of all, spending a lot of time outside. So guys, stay healthy… always so nice to hear something from you! Christiane

    1. Yes, that feeling is with us too, Christiane. This brillain essay puts that feeling into context: https://paulkingsnorth.substack.com/p/the-vaccine-moment-part-one
      Sending much courage, resistance, health and love.

    Such important information thanks Patrick and Meg. I appreciate this research and analysis you are bringing together and making available… helping us better understand context as well as options we have before us, and contributing towards a process of informed decisions in complex and divisive times.
