Vitamin C and Vitamin D3

I know I have been very neglectful of this blog.  Let's just say I can barely keep my head above water with all the important things in life, so the blog will have to patiently wait until I have more time for computer activities.
But, I do hope to still occasionally pop on here and put something of worth together to share with everybody.

These past few months our family has been using therapeutic amounts of Vitamin C and Vitamin D to try and stay healthy this winter.  We have been so blessed by the results, that Nathan and I can't seem to shut up about it.  If you have spent any amount of time with us you have probably already heard us talk about it.  I wanted to post some links on my blog so that people could read up on it themselves and see if it is something that would work for them and their family.  We have used it for everyone from the baby and toddler all the way up to the grandparents and great-grandparents in our family.  I hope you find some value in it.

The site to read up on for Vitamin C and other therapeutic vitamins is
Here are a few articles from that site

Nathan and I have been taking about 4,000mg or so of Vitamin C daily when we are healthy.  The kids have been averaging 2,000 to 4,000 a day.  When we feel we are getting sick we take much more throughout the course of the day until our symptoms subside or we hit the saturation point (read the titration link to know about that).

Dr. Mercola has wonderful information on the importance of Vitamin D and how the government recommended amounts are ridiculously low.  You can read up on some information at
Here are a few important articles

Nathan and I try and take about 10,000 IUs daily of Vitamin D3.  We give the kids a few thousand IUs.  This is the amount we take when healthy.  If we start to get sick we up the dosage quite a bit for just a few days.

Let me know if any of this is helpful!  Stay healthy!
