NEW HOPE FOR THOSE WITH MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS


As a Florida plastic and cosmetic surgeon, I have written several blogs on the benefits of high doses of vitamin D.  Now another study, done in Sweden, shows people with HIGH levels of vitamin D have a lower risk of developing multiple sclerosis.  

People with high levels of Vitamin D had 61% less chance of developing MS.  

It's hard to get adequate amounts of vitamin D from food alone. Researchers speculate that not only are you at an increase risk of multiple sclerosis but other chronic health problems such as diabetes and heart disease.  

Dr. Solomon, who did the study, recommends his patients take 2-4000 units a day.

Of course, this information, like information published here, is one doctor's view of current medical news and is not medical advice. Check with your physician for advice that may be right specifically for you.
