My friends of ATS,
Yes indeed, a REAL FACT, and a personal experience for sure
I work in a residential care home looking after children from the ages of 9 to 18 years old, there are 39 kids in total. In addition to this, there
are 61 staff making a total of 100 people in the work place. The work place is A HIVE FOR THE FLU VIRUS. Some kids go home and bring it back, staff go
home and bring it back, they share it, spread it and suffer greatly from it. The whole school, with the exception of a few, have either had it or are
curently suffering from it. If you want the flu, come to my work place
Not me, Why? I have been taken Vit D for around 4 years now and have never come down with a flu, or cold for that matter, not even a sniffle, nada,
nowt, ever! I nearly tricked myself into believing that my healthy diet was the cause of prevention, until today.
Hiking without Vit D
Coming up to the xmas holidays I took a few days off to go hiking in Scotland, and forgot to bring my Vit D, my first time in 4 years. When I went
into work yesterday I picked up the flu virus from a generous kid named " Have IT ", bless him. Yes, one of my kids on my care was loaded with it. I
knew I had it upon waking at 4.20am this morning, sweating, shaking and running to the loo, sore head and somewhat dizzy..... sounds and feels like a
flu virus to me
The Miracle wonder of Vit D
On my way to work this morning I stopped of and got some Vit D. I must stress i was absolutely MINGING with the flu at this stage. I fell out of the
car, stumbled into the Pharmacy, stumbled back out and drove the 6 miles to work....MINGING!! As soon as I arrived in work I took four 200mg Vit D
tablets. Within about 1.5 hours I was starting to perk up, within 3 hours my headache had gone, along with the dizzyness and shaking, though I was
still sweating and felt a tad feaver'ish. I took another four tablets 6 hours later, and after one hour I felt ALMOST normal.
As I write this, almost 13 hours later, and after taking another two tablets an hour ago..... I FEEL ABSOLUTELY FINE!!!!
I will sleep well tonight
Many thanks for reading, and hopefully this will inspire some of you to invest in some Vit D?
Be safe be well, healthy and sane...
