Could Vitamin D blood levels stem from absorption issues? Or a lack of sun on our skin, aka. outdoor time? Simply adding an isolate to treat symptoms gets us no closer to a remedy of the cause. Dig deep, many times it is less what we add to our bodies and more of what we subtract that brings our systems into homeostasis. #subtractionarymedicine

My rheumatologist was the one who checked my vitamin D level and he had me take extra. So I take daily 1800 iu.

I am a life-long asthma sufferer. I have nearly lost my life more times that I can recall from this condition. And yet, I have found ways to maintain my illness through nutrition and a healthy lifestyle, which in turns allows me to exercise more, which in turn, improves my condition.

That is a powerful story ... very encouraging! I've just started a topic on daily exercise to encourage us to get out there -- and also to keep us accountable. I'd love to have someone with your dedication and passion for exercise along for the ride -- I surely could use an excuse buster!

Thank you! Here is a video of the finish. It's a few minutes long but it's pretty exciting. I missed the cutoff by 23 seconds, but it didn't matter. Watch all the way to the end and see what happens! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ndY9xptZI9w

Awwwww, sorry! It's a fun cry though, isn't it? :-) Such amazing people out there in this world. We located the athlete who gave me his medal and he and I corresponded for quite some time. He even added a "guest blogger" entry on my blog. Can't believe it has been nearly four years. :-)

It's in the original picture post. The link is there at the end of my commentary. I haven't written on it in years but I do walk people through my journey (including details of my first lung collapse as a result of asthma) and how I maintain my asthma now. I'm a bit verbose. :-)
