Hello one and all, as promised  here is the very important and informative post Ty sent in for us. I Obara Meji am so blessed to be supported by you all and by that I mean your attention/attendance here daily. I thank you for being here with me always, Charles blogging from so far (Nigeria) I appreciate you sir, E’kabo! (welcome). Each and everyone of you inspire me and cheer me up daily. Ty like all of you, is a Gem worth more than diamonds, she brighta dan ten stadium bulb and yet so humble with her brilliance.

I have learned so much from all of you God sent folks here. On this blog site you will find the proof that quality bares the best fruit than quantity. God did not send me a bunch of Bafoons/dullards, instead he sent brilliant, worthy students and teachers for us to gather together and share love, laughter, comfort, teach Nunu how fi wear heels, find MTH a mawga man wid ah hell of ah nose, pass wisdom and laugh while begging ourselves not to turn Yazzy in for the  $50.00 and a tin ah Milo dung ah Bellevue.

Cami is mi twin given away at birth, I have never seen somebody so close to me in personality, I just love you Cami, and no weapon formed against you shall prosper, de odda day yuh threatened to stay away from the blog, and I ws cool, but behind your back me Kia, Ty and Nunu wuk ah piece ah Juju pon yuh fi stop yuh from go whey and seet deh yuh come back widouuten knowing ah ting! Confession is good fi de soul, how could you leave us, no it nuh possible, we love yuh too much.

This week I have received five emails from people who loves us here on Embracing Spirituality, Caroline  from the UK, says “it is so refreshing to see wisdom mixed in with humor”, she says she loves the blog and shares it with her friends, she says  its like a good novel you just cannot put down. She is trying to get up the nerve to blog with us. We welcome you whenever you are ready.

Shana says she loves the blog and can really see how close we all are and that we love each other, she also is working on her nerves to join us, and she is welcome.

Josh says, he reads everyday and he is also learning patois as he is Caucasian but he finds the challenge very soothing and he pats himself on the back when he gets the understanding of a hard word, welcome Josh. Lorna and Maribel, Welcome. teeA  (who is Nigerian) come as you like, so the peepers are becoming a little more comfortable, and the emails are coming in.

Also the email for initiations inquiry have been coming in, so the response to the post has been good. We are progressing, our blog is growing and to Osun and Orunmila, and Olodumare we give the glory and praise…Ase!

I thank you all, Sea Queen, welcome…Spiritual Seeker we are always happy to see you. Courtney, I so appreciate you!

Today lets us learn of the great benefits of Vitamin D, information given to us by our trusted Sister TY, and trust mi, she never Google nutten, de ooman is learned! She love we and she nah guh tell we nutten wrong, Thank you Ty!

 

Vitamin D by TY

 

 

A few weeks ago MTH had asked me to write about winter blues. She wanted to delve more into why people got more depressed during this time of year. I can understand this concern. Who would be depressed with thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas boxing day, and new years all string together? This got me to think about vitamin D and the role it plays in our body.

 

Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin. This means that it can be more readily stored by the body, as opposed to water soluble vitamins that are easily eliminated in your urine. There are three forms of vitamin D. The first type, vitamin D1, is made by your skin when you go out in the sun. This however is not the active form, that the body can readily use. It has to go to the liver to be hydroxylated to make vitamin D2, or  25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D], also known as calcidiol. This form is also not the active form and not readily available for use. It too has to undergo another hydroxylation. The second hydroxylation occurs in the kidneys to form 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D [1,25(OH)2D], also known as calcitriol. Vitamin D3 or calcitriol is the active form that the body can readily use.

 

Some of the many things vitamin D is used for are:

  • calcium and phosphorous balance
  • bone growth and maintenance
  • cell growth
  • neuromuscular and immune function
  • reduction of inflammation
  • gene modulation and cancer protection ( especially colon, prostate, and breast cancer)
  • So when it is low you can imagine the devastation. You can have your vitamin D level check when you get your blood checked. And you guessed it, ask for them to check your 1,25 dihydroxyvitamin D, the active form. If the levels are below 30, you should consider taking a supplement. Typically the replacement dose for adults is 2000 IU daily for six months and the maintenance dose about 400 to 800 IU daily according to your dietary intake of vitamin D.

     

    Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to many things, some common ones are:

    • depression
    • increased cancer risk
    • diabetes
    • worsening thyroid problems
    • winter blues
    • muscle aches
    • joint pains
    • osteoporosis

     

    Foods that are rich in vitamin D include cod liver oil, salmon, tuna, yogurt, sardines, liver, eggs, and swiss cheese. Some breads, cereals, milk, and margarine are fortified with vitamin D (i.e. it is added to them). Please note that breast feed babies MUST be given vitamin D supplements for proper bone growth because breast milk does not have enough vitamin D to support health bone growth.  Also with everything, there should be balance, so please do not overdose. extremely high level can be toxic, and since it is a fat soluble vitamin, it is hard to remove toxic levels.

    Ok, so now we have the basics about vitamin D, lets get to MTH’s question, winter blues. Winter blues is also called Season Affective Disorder. It can have all the symptoms of regular depression such as decreased energy, increased appetite, increased need or desire for sleep, lost of interest in usually pleasurable activities, irritability, and weight gain. It however does not happen all year like regular depression but typically happens during the winter months or during the same season each year. It is believed that it occurs more in the winter season because the days are shorter and so there is decreased sunlight. This coupled with colder temperature and increased time spent indoors, all give a recipe for lower vitamin D levels. So if you are feeling the winter blues this year, consider going out in the sun more, taking a vitamin D3 supplement or eating more vitamin D rich foods.


    I am sure there are many other reasons for the winter blues and people being more depressed during this time of year. i just wanted to address just one of the myriad of possibilities. I hope you learned something and that we can have a great discussion on vitamins.

There are no disappointments in life only lessons learned!

Ty, I love your suggestion about to write how we have grown. I would like to through out this suggestion, we could start the New Year with a fast and write what we would like to accomplish during 2015 (and beyond) and we all pray on them.

I wanted to make a suggestion to everyone…that in the last week of this year we all post about how we have grown spiritually this year….Cami’s post stimulated this idea…no need for New Years resolution but a mere reflection and introspection on how we have grown spiritually….

I do not know any brands to endorse…seven seas cod liver oil has been a tried and true ….

No…the excess sunbathing not only gives sunburns…but damage the skin tissue underneath and affects the cells ability to regenerate….additionally we have taken such poor care of Mother Earth that the protective ozone layer is so thin that damaging UVA and UVB cause severe often up repairable damage ….to the upper and lower skin layers…

Hey Kia and SeaQ. SQ hope you’ll be able to tuck in early tonight. I notice most Jamaicans don’t like sleep and feel the need to not see bed until night. Not me, sleep is whenever I have nothing to do, even if it’s just laying down to read.

Good evening obara, toy, yazzy, mth, kb, nunu, ty, and all es family! I am fighting these winter blues as we speak. I was out on the road today and dosed off at the yield sign, all mi hear ah “beep, beep!” I was so embarrassed lol. As I comment there is a news report on this same topic (Vitamin D and depression). There is always some excitement over there in Nigeria, from juju war to a rebellious king lol

Ty

Hey Sea Queen, we so happy you are with us…hopefully we can cheer you up…we will definitely lift you up in prayer and send lots of love and light…

I am so grateful you are safe, your guides are on the job and saved you…God is so amazing…

Ty, I like that you stress about babies needing Vit D supplement to aide in their growth and development. Likewise, it is also important for prospective moms to take to prepare their bodies for birth and for pregnant moms to implement with prenatal regimen. I think it’s also good for women without children that have fertility issues…

Ty, I was clueless its used in gene modulation and cancer protection. Can you discuss that some more. You’re always great with breaking it down fi mi undastan

Ty
Blogger
Blogger

Yazzy, yes atleast 3 months before a planned pregnancy, prenatal vitamin are EXCELLENT…adding vitamin D and omega fatty acids are good too..

the best way I can answer the gene modulation and cancer protection, is to give you an analogy…think of vitamin D as the stuff they pour in your gas tank to prolong the gas mileage and efficiency of the engine…it makes the engine run smoother, shift gear smoother, and make the tank of gas last longer…the human body being the great machine ever made, thrives on vitamin D…

vitamin D receptors are now being found in tissues that were never though to have them and most of the studies show that they help to modulate or gatekeep with entry and exit in the brain of cells… Kinda like what we learned about BABA ESU…a gatekeeper for all messages…who can speed up or slow down any message if not appeased…( I am trying to tie in spirituality, lol…iba Baba ESU, Lasunkan, ESU ma se mi o)

I usually take my vitamin in the morning with my juice (that way it doesn’t upset my stomach) however we have been getting really really really tired around 3-4 in the afternoon (no matter what time I wake and even if I take a nap), should I take it later or take just a D later in the day?

Ty
Blogger
Blogger

You can give that a try and see if it works for you…

I forgot to mention that vitamin d supplements are better absorbed when taken with food..

hey lovely peoples thank you Ty for the wealth of information concerning SAD. Recently my fren was talking about this and while I know it is a serious disorder, I suggested to her that she strengthen her mind. She said it’s more than that to her. She is a housewife and the old grumpy man nuh help her just a tear her down. I told her go out daily, read, exercise, drive the streets, take down them dark drapes and open her house up daily to receive the sun. What little sun may be out I want it! She happy a yaad or florida but old grumpy fraid a hurricane…hmmm see my dying trail…satan frighten a storm. lol

M, that’s excellent. Supplement ain’t for everyone but as yuh age yuh body is depleted of some essential things it needs and the likkle supplement dem help but I don’t trust the pill forms of these drugs… I also would prefer the natural way to acquire most of whatever we are lacking by sourcing it from our diet. But then here in American yuh also affi a watch weh yuh food comes from and where it’s grown and how it’s stored… Lawd… Everything is a damn production. Kmt

exactly Yazzy, the best way is to get it naturally but if you cannot get it that way then it is ok to do supplement…Old time Jcans are some of the smartest people I know, one of the few supplements dem have as staple is seven seas cod liver oil…and you guessed it, it have vitamin D, fish oil, and vitamin E…

Ty, I had a few questions…

Since vitamin D3 is dat soluble and we don’t need much, as Cami asked, how can we make sure we don’t come dangerously close to overdosage. I personally over do every damn thing. I recently went vegan but I LOVE fishes so much that I plan on having an interchangeable diet, come New Year, where I swing from vegan to vegetarian and it’s lifestyle than to focus solely on the food. I noticed you mentioned some of my favs such as Salmon and Sardines. Love ‘me! So while eating all the vitamin D3 rich meals, should we still supplement with the pills? I also take Cod Liver Oil… from birt’ weh granny grow mi pan and I still continue to make that a staple in my daily regimen then I recently went out and actually bought a bottle of Vitamin D mi affi guy check di backkle fi see if its D1 or D3. So I think I’m sorta pushing it ya now as you mention it being toxic as its fat soluble and isnt easily excreted.

Also, does Vit D3 work synergistically with any other Vits and if so, what are they??

Ty
Blogger
Blogger

The most reliable way to know what your levels is to have the lab work done…under 30, too low and over 100 too high…

the other fat soluble vitamins are vitamin A, E, and K…these all work with vitamin D. However vitamin D is the boss…it is thought to be a catalyst for numerous reactions in the body…it speeds up almost every process…it plays a HUGE role in cancer apoptosis…see everyday our cells are fighting cancer, and putting up a defense against infections. Vitamin D is a small but well need player in the cancer fight, cell breakdown and regeneration…it make al these go faster and run more efficiently…

He lived in a Gully or something to the effect. Mash up and pap dung. Someone you-chube him an di ress is HIS-story. Mad lyrics a flow like Kartel, bad like Ninja Man.

Ty, really I had to read over. So many pearls of wisdom….

Remember I told you that when I was in first form and I would get home first from school I had to cook and liver was the first think I learnt to cook? Well I am seeing the co-relation with everything. Then I ate an abudance of liver and eggs and was always in the sun. Maybe that is what is responsible for my ‘sunny disposition’…

I always knew that there was something to people in England so dam grumpy all the time (ax pardon Caroline) it is the missing sun. Geez, now I feel so smart. LOL…

Ty I’m so proud of you! Yuh hilarious eenuh. Yuh a get ready fi buss big toast and drink and yuh seh hell no! Prefect M stop drink suh no way, Jose! I love it! That’s what happened to me, I knew I wanted to start a good workout routine to add to my already amazing nutritional diet but I didn’t have the enthusiasm until I kept seeing you hittin’ up the gym chic. I was like hell no! If Ty can do it bout 2x -3x/ week… Mi mus can take some inspirational do it at least once! And I did. So thank you! I’m happy you’re juicing way more. Juicing daily becomes a lifestyle. It’s like waking up and brushing your teeth. I’ve now been exposed to juicing more veggies as opposed to fruits as with the fruits we have to take into account the higher levels of sugar intake.

Muah me smart sister-in-law (hail up me missing brother). THANKS for that load of information, and I never really knew that the term ‘winter blues’ had a medical terminology.

How do you know if you OD on vitamin D? I once had an obsession with cod liver capsules, lol.

**I wished everyone a great work week on the other post…the same here too.

A special greetings to our fellow silent blog readers…hope to see you all one day. Big ups to Josh for going beyond to learn the native tongue of most of us here…blessings to you and all.

Obara, love you said way. You older than me spiritually, but we are mates from beyond.

Cami, there are many thoughts about vitamin D overdose..if the levels are over 100, toxicity usually ensues…there are not many good human studies to tell symptoms of toxicity…most are from studies with dogs..the symptoms include vomiting, constipation, muscle weakness….when it really bad and go on for years, the body in its attempt to get rid of it, bind it to calcium and form a calcified stone in soft tissues and muscles…
