difficult to refill your
prescriptions. There is a nationwide
shortage of raw material used to
produce the medications because Food

While natural thyroid (from porcine)

We think it absolutely should be.
Recent data supports it as well.
According to an 8/31 report in Endocrine
Practice, which reviewed
studies from 1948-2009, "the
clinical significance of maintaining
vitamin D sufficiency becomes more
apparent. Several studies build on
existing research in vitamin D
immunology, which demonstrates a
likely connection among vitamin D
repletion, susceptibility to
infection, and clinical outcomes in a
variety of infectious processes. The
strongest evidence supports vitamin D
therapy for tuberculosis, influenza,
and viral upper respiratory tract
illnesses. Adequate vitamin D status
(serum 25-OHD level greater than 30 to
32) may decrease all-cause infection
rates in the population."
Need we say more? One other note: the
