Shaklee Distributor in Dallas talks about vitamin D.

Shaklee Distributor in Dallas talks about vitamin D.

Why you’re not getting enough vitamin D

Low vitamin D has been linked to less than optimal heart health, immune function, bone health, and an increased risk for certain cancers. A growing number of experts believe current vitamin D intakes and blood levels are too low to support your best health. It has been estimated that as many as 80% of Americans may not have high enough blood levels of vitamin D.

Causes of vitamin D insufficiency

What causes this high amount of vitamin D insufficiency?  There are several factors that determine the amount of vitamin D in your body each day. Vitamin D is formed in the body when your unprotected skin is exposed to sunlight, or it’s available in vitamin D-rich foods, but we are avoiding sun exposure and we don’t eat an abundance of foods containing  vitamin D today.

The season or calendar month is a risk factor for vitamin D insufficiency because of the reduced sunlight during late autumn, winter, and early spring. Sun exposure is vital to vitamin D health and vitamin D insufficiency rises with the increase in sunscreen use and reduced time spent outdoors.

The geographical latitude of your home location is another determinant of daily sunlight exposure, and skin color is a key factor because those with darker skin do not convert sunlight to vitamin D internally as well as lighter skin does.  Increasing age, being overweight, lack of exercise, and low intake of fish and other vitamin D-rich foods in the diet are some other critical factors that can create a greater need for vitamin D.

You can ‘D-fend’ yourself

Consider getting 10–20 minutes of sun exposure daily without the use of sunscreen. Exercise regularly and achieve a healthy weight. Eat fish and vitamin D-fortified foods more often.   And because we know that obtaining sufficient vitamin D from foods is difficult, find a high-quality dietary supplement of vitamin D3, the most potent form of vitamin D found naturally in the human body.

I find that Vita-D, from the Shaklee corporation to be an excellent source of vitamin D3.  Take the “D-ology” test to see if you need extra vitamin D to help ward off the conditions linked to low levels of this critical nutrient.

Colonoscopy Day

Colonoscopy day started early.  My appointment was at 7:30 a.m. and they wanted me there at 6:30.  My procedure was done at the doctor’s clinic.  It was not far from home and it was raining.  Bob took me to the office and waited for me.  My anesthesiologist later said she was surprised that everyone was showing up on time because of the weather.


After filling out paperwork, I waited only a few minutes before they called my name.  I verified the correct spelling on my wrist band and we were taken to the bed that I would have my procedure done on.


A nurse came and began asking questions. There were the typical questions about family history and current status.  She was quite impressed that at 52, I am on no medications.  She complemented me on my excellent blood pressure and the fact that I have had only one surgery in my life:  a tonsillectomy at the age of 18.  She then started an IV in my right hand.


A second nurse came and asked most of the same questions.  She, too, was impressed with my status.  I contribute my good health to the 26 years of taking vitamins and just about as many years of exercising on a regular basis.


Then the anesthesiologist came.  She, again, asked many questions and then rolled me down the hall on the bed.  I had never seen a hospital hallway from a rolling bed or guerney.  She must have passed her driving test, because she made the turns and corners with experienced ease. 


In the procedure room a nurse was very friendly and energetic.  She offered me a blanket and I waffled on the request.  She said, “You want a blanket,” and put a warm one over me. It felt good for the time I remember it.  The anesthesia began to kick in.  The last thing I remember was saying, “Here it comes.”


When I woke up I think I was back in the original space where all the prepatory questions were asked.  I felt a little groggy, but came around pretty quickly.  Someone offered me some juice and it really was good.  I was quite thirsty after the preparation day and having had no fluids after midnight.  The doctor came by and brought pictures of my colon and said he’d call in about 5 days. They had snipped off a small pollup and were sending it to the lab for a biopsy.


Soon we were on our way back home in the rain.  I seemed to feel every bump in the road.  I didn’t want to go sit in a restaurant to eat, so we came home.  I did  have some cereal with Café Latte Cinch Shake in it.  It was very good.  Soon after that I laid on the sofa and slept.  I slept off and on until about 11:30 a.m.  I kept getting up to get something to drink and going to the bathroom. 


That was the part I was not ready for.  The same routine as last night was happening on the day of the procedure.  This kept up until later in the day.  I think the corner was turned when I had more cereal, this time with high fiber.


So all is better, two days later.  The only remains are the irritated circles on my chest were they monitored my heart during the procedure and a bruise on my right hand where the IV was installed.


Colonoscopy day started early. I will get more results from the doctor 5 days after the big day.  It wasn’t as bad as I expected and it was a longer ordeal than I expected.

Dallas Colonoscopy Preparation

Dallas colonoscopy preparation can be frightening.  This preventative measure is very important and the actual procedure is very easily endured when you follow a few simple steps. 

I just had my first colonoscopy at 52 years of age.  I didn’t worry about it so much, but knew that I needed to have that first one done.  There is no history of colon cancer in my family, but one should always exercise preventative measures to ensure the future of good health.

The preparation day is the hard part-at least it was for me. I was instructed to have only clear liquids all day, eat or drink nothing red and begin the “cleansing” process at 7 p.m.  I was apprehensive about this modified fasting, but it went surprisingly well.  I used chicken broth, apple juice, ginger ale, Cinch Energizing Tea and lime jello.   I did very little of this intake until about two p.m.  I began to get a slight headache, so I ramped up the intake.  I usually eat several times a day and this fasting had cut my normal calorie intake drastically.

At seven p.m. I began drinking “the drink”.  I used the lemon/lime flavoring in it.  I really had to concentrate to taste the flavoring.  It was not tasty.  After about an hour, I began to visit the toilet.  Then it seemed that with each drink there was a visit.  The instructions are to drink eight ounces every 10 minutes.   I finished the last drink at about 11:30 p.m.  The effects are delayed, so I finally got to bed at 2 p.m.  My procedure was at 7:30 a.m. and I was required to arrive at 6:30 a.m. 


Colonospy Preparation was not as difficult as I had thought it would be.  I will discuss the day of the procedure in my next post.
