The D*action Campaign needs your help to get past the resistance and Move Research into Practice!

In early September, we shared with you the results of a trial in Spain that showed the administration of 25(OH)D (calcifediol) for patients admitted to the hospital in the early stages of COVID-19 significantly reduced the need for admission to the ICU, regardless of existing comorbidities.

Rather than take this result and move it into wider practice (or even larger trials), government agencies and hospital networks have shown resistance. A subsequent analysis of the study by researchers at MIT found that the reduction in ICU admissions was not a result of an imbalance in the control and treatment groups but “is most likely associated with calcifediol treatment.”

As you can see, our work is clearly not done. GrassrootsHealth needs to do a MAJOR PUSH with your help to spread the word to massive audiences all over the world, so that information such as this can be a key element for each person to take control of their own health TODAY!

We need your help to support our outreach effort and continue spreading the good news! Donating $25.00 or more today will allow us to expand our outreach efforts and positively affect millions of lives! We will take this opportunity to use our extensive network and get vital information on vitamin D to local and state government representatives around the world.

Will you help us to continue making a difference on Giving Tuesday? From the GrassrootsHealth team, we thank you!

  • How much vitamin D do I need?
  • What can I share with my health care practitioner?
  • When could it be toxic?
  • What are co-factors?

How Can You Use this Information for YOUR Health?

Having and maintaining healthy vitamin D and other nutrient levels can help improve your health now and for your future. Measuring is the only way to make sure you are getting enough!

STEP 1 Order your at-home blood spot test kit to measure vitamin D and other nutrients of concern to you, such as omega-3s, magnesium, essential and toxic elements (zinc, copper, selenium, lead, cadmium, mercury); include hsCRP as a marker of inflammation or HbA1c for blood sugar health

STEP 2 Answer the online questionnaire as part of the GrassrootsHealth study

STEP 3 Using our educational materials and tools (such as our dose calculators), assess your results to determine if you are in your desired target range or if actions should be taken to get there

STEP 4 After 3-6 months of implementing your changes, re-test to see if you have achieved your target level(s)
