Vit D Gets Nod from Congress

February 18, 2021

We must support a new resolution that officially recognizes what the FDA and FTC refuse to acknowledge—that vitamin D can help us fight COVID. Action Alert!

Congressman Glenn Grotham (R-WI) has introduced a House Resolution to “recognize the significant role vitamin D may play in the fight against COVID-19.” If passed, the resolution will encourage official recognition of vitamin D as effective in preventing serious COVID-19 infection. Supporting this resolution also builds momentum towards further recognition of natural medicine’s role in treating and preventing illnesses—even as the federal government seeks to undermine the free flow of information about these benefits.

Rep. Grotham’s press release cites, among other evidence, an initiative from an international alliance of researchers and doctors calling on governments to raise the daily recommended intake of vitamin D from 400 IU to 4,000 IU to reduce the severity of COVID-19.

Many in the natural health community have long understood the importance of vitamin D for preventing serious COVID-19 cases. Studies have shown that vitamin D deficiency is strongly correlated to COVID-19 mortality.

Rep. Grotham’s resolution underscores the absurdity of the federal government’s current position. As we’ve been reporting for months now, doctors and clinics have been attacked by the FDA and the FTC for sharing information about how vitamin D, in addition to other natural medicines, can help with COVID. Why? Because vitamin D isn’t FDA-approved for the treatment of COVID, and only FDA-approved drugs can claim to treat or prevent a disease.

This goes beyond just vitamin D, of course. We reported recently that Thailand approved the herb Andrographis paniculate to treat early COVID-19 infection. Other natural medicines like zinc, quercetin, and melatonin have shown promise in fighting COVID-19—so much promise that former President Trump’s medical team used natural medicines to treat his COVID infection. Hospital protocols in the US are even including vitamins D, C, and B, as well as zinc and melatonin, in their COVID-19 treatment protocols.

Older Americans and communities of color are at greatest risk of death from COVID-19, yet the government is blocking all of us from learning about how natural medicine can help keep us healthy. This is murderous bureaucratic indifference to what is happening to people, especially older Americans who are most at risk. 

There is a way forward. ANH is building support for a legislative proposal that will allow companies to cite reputable studies describing the benefits of natural medicines. Making this information accessible will offer Americans more healthcare choices outside of expensive, dangerous, and often ineffective prescription drugs. Take action below to help us get this message to every member of Congress.

    We healthfully take vitamin D daily, and must support a new resolution that officially recognizes what the FDA and FTC refuse to acknowledge—that vitamin D can help us fight COVID.

    What have medical doctors told us for years? Stay out of the mid-day sun. How do we get vitamin D? From the UVB rays from midday sun. Granted, we’re in winter, but getting plenty of sunshine during the spring and summer will give you enough vitaminD to last through the winter. For those who don’t get enough sunshine, taking vitamin D is a good idea. Thank you for standing up for natural remedies. We can stop this pandemic by eating healthy plant foods, and getting adequate vitamins D and C. Thank you for your efforts.

  5. Thank You for your effort, Even my ND has said that a 75 yr old taking 5,000IU of Vit D could have the resistance of a 50 yr old to Covid. I work 4 Days a week in a therapy oriented practice at 75 in very close contact with folks for an hr. at a time, and have remained well through Covid.

  6. In attempting to do this I got a “HOST ERROR” – I have no idea what that meant

    Your ‘take action’; is too confusing for me. Too much redunant info. Too long. When simpler, I will respond.

    I used high doses of Vitamin D & C. While my other family members ended up in the hospital – I did not.

    I’ve taken nearly all the supplements mentioned in this article for many years now and honestly have not been sick for at least 12 years. Not even a cold! They are all good for your immune system!

  10. DK Weamer says:

    It is a good start. Can’t wait until zinc, Vit C complex which includes quercetin , Elderberry extract, Andrographis and other immune supporting supplements are also recognized.

    Ever since the British and the 200 year Opium War against China drugs have been the sneaky weapon of choice to destroy individuals and families. That plus LIES or omissions i.e. Where did yearly influenza go? Pharma is sliding down to harma at super speed! Sandy Acosta

    Thank you for introducing this House resolution. I sincerely hope it is voted on and accepted for the health and well being of our nation. I am so very fortunate to have a physician that has stressed healthy vitamin D levels for many years. Members of Congress, please work for the well being of your constituents and vote for this resolution! It has been very frustrating to me that throughout this past year there have been NO recommendations made for achieving healthy vitamin D levels or for any other lifestyle changes that would improve a person’s health.
    Thank you,
    Roma Jenkins

    It is high time that we take power away from the agencies who have abused their power by colluding with corrupt pharmaceutical company agreements to silence the access of life affirming solutions.
