The following presentation is fascinating. So many people suffer from autoimmune problems. Could it be that many of them can be cured using a subset of Vitamin D?
It makes sense that many bacterial genomes damage the immune system over time and incrementally shut it down. In effect microbiota block the Vitamin D Receptors from producing antimicrobials.
Professor Trevor Marshall has worked with over 500 human subjects and demonstrated reversibility of many autoimmune conditions including Lupus, MS, Type 2 diabetes and many more conditions, typically chronic inflammation conditions.
What is even more impressive is that as the inflammation receded, a host of other conditions that the subjects suffered from also disappeared. These included memory loss, obsessive compulsive disorder, osteoporosis, bipolar and even cardiovascular disease.
In their research they discovered a couple of very interesting points. One is that only 1,25 dihydroxyviatmin-D can activate VDR transcription, whereas Vitamin D that we can take as pills actually inhibit it.
Could this be one of the discoveries that will help increase our life expectancy and potentially cure people from many terrible diseases?
