Now, Soram Khalsa, M.D., sheds new light on the power of this long-forgotten vitamin. He reveals how to recognize signs of Vitamin D deficiency, which has reached epidemic proportions in North America, and then shares insights from his Beverly Hills medical practice, where he normalizes his own patients' Vitamin D levels for their optimal health.

    You HAVE to take the time to read this!

    I am SO glad I bought this book. I had no idea how vital vitamin D was to nearly every process in my body. I also had no idea how deficient I was in it. I started by asking my primary care physician to take my vitamin D level when I went for my annual physical and had a blood draw. The optimum number is somewhere between 35 - 50, closer to 50 if you are overweight. I was a 16!!! My Dr. prescribed a couple of months of mega-doses of vitamin D as a result of the blood test. I started noticing positive differences as soon as I started taking vitamin D. Aches and pains (that I'd had for years - and was told were from fibromyalgia) started disappearing almost immediately, my skin is softer and not so dry...the list goes on.
    Do yourself a favor and GET THIS BOOK!

    You may need to read this to feel healthier!

    I saw Dr. Khalsa on Dr Oz's show and got the book to read. That started me thinking of how I felt, and had my D level checked. I was quite low so I started supplements of D3. After several weeks I started to feel more alert and somehow happier. Those are not things that I usually associate with low Vitamin D, but it must reflect my over-all better condition.

    Dr. Khalsa is very clear about his research and what he recommends to his patients. He gives some case studies and how those people had changed after beginning supplemental vitamin D. He recommends that the reader check with their own doctor before beginning supplements and that we need to have periodic blood tests to check vitamin D levels. That is always good medical advice. I liked that this book is from a medical doctor's point of view, not a celebrity or self-studied activist who may not have the background to correctly advise the general public. Dr. Khalsa even suggests giving your doctor a copy of the book. Your doctor may or may not take that kindly, but it is worth discussing that you researched the subject and have some knowledge on the subject.

    This book is very well worth the money.

    Poor quality

    There are so many odd hyphenations in this book that it leaves one wondering about the validity content.
