When Dr. Davis of Track Your Plaque first reported his phenomenal success using Vitamin D to reverse coronary plaque I pretty much blew it off as coincidental and too good to be true. But, once again, Dr. Davis has proven to be the "Nostradamus of Heart Disease Reversal" as breaking data continues to support his prediction and clinical evidence.
After much brow beating, I finally decided to try Vitamin D. With some rather interesting results. Let's first set the table for my experience.
When I first became a follower of Dr. Davis (long before there was a Track Your Plaque) I had my testosterone tested and it was fairly low (near the bottom end of normal). Because testosterone can be an effective Lp(a) remedy (my scourge) I tried using a testosterone cream to raise my level and it promptly went up to the high end of normal. But, for various reasons (no effect on Lp(a), lowering of HDL, and it's inconvenient as hell to use) I stopped. But look at my Testosterone (T) blood levels since I started using Vitamin D!
|Date||T (ng/dL)||Vit D (ng/mL)||Notes|
|02/06/03||774||Unknown||Started topical testosterone|
|08/04/06||792||53.0||Stopped T 1 year earlier/started 2100IU D|
|12/26/07||735||40.7||8000IU Vitamin D (increased for winter)|
|03/06/08||728||69.2||10000IU Vitamin D (needed more to hit TYP threshhold)|
As you can see the Vitamin D was just as effective at raising my endogenous testosterone as was using synthetic, topically applied testosterone cream. Also note that I had to signficantly raise my D dosage in winter months to offset the lack of sun. The other goofy thing is that for some reason there is a threshhold effect at around 50ng/mL (although mine kicked in at 40). This Vitamin D stuff is damn interesting. The numbers do not lie and for a numbers guy like me its all the proof I need.
