Doctors are mostly trained in physiology and anatomy. Pharmaceuticals are the experts in medications. When a doctor prescribed something, we trust him/her implicitly. We take the pill, and no questions asked.
At our doctor's office recently, there were two flyers posted. One, about the side effects of drugs prescribed for depression, side effects worse than the original diagnosis of depression. The other, about the connection between depression and dementia, dementia occurring in the absence of adequate Vitamin D.
So, voila', we are now all tested for Vitamin D deficiency, and most of us are found to be in need of supplements.
Remember when your mother told you to go outside and play?
Mothers are the repository of ancient wisdom passed down through generations: listen to them. Get out of the woods, the dark rooms, and go out and play in the sunshine.
Oh, and don't forget to wear cancer prevention cream!
