Carole Baggerly explains which doctors can help women improve their vitamin D levels.
Many doctors are really behind the curve today with this. They care but they are behind the curve. And what we end up doing as Grassroots Health right now is to, to answer the, how, working with the doctor question, is there are some materials on our website that we suggest to people they take to their doctors to tell them how to work with them about the vitamin D status.
It’s, one of them is our scientist call to action and one of them is the serum incidence disease prevention chart which shows how much you need for different diseases. All the doctors can do the testing of the calcium and the calcium ions and make sure that those levels are there. And they will work with you, it’s just that they’re a little behind the curve.
If you want to get your hands on all of the advocacy papers that I just mentioned, go to our website which is www.grassrootshealth.org.
