Let me first say that it is rather unbelievable that so many people email me for health / fitness advice — and I'm working up a post to show you just exactly what I mean.
A gentleman I'm working with to eventually commercialize this project, somewhat, always tells me that I'm hugely underestimating my influence, impact, et cetera, et cetera. "Bla bla bla; bla…bla." But guess what? He has obviously obtained his predictive abilities via tried & true experience, because one of the most common themes in the emails I get (more and more, every day) is: you have no idea!
Go figure. For years I gave you the deepest political insights. …Cutting analysis and reduction to first principles far removed from the bromide & slogan drivel of any news station or print rag. Almost nobody cared. But I get a bead on health, fitness, weight loss and demonstrate some credibility vis-à-vis my own personal progress, and suddenly, we're off and running.
All that, simply to say that I can't even begin to imagine what it must be like for someone like cardiologist Dr. Davis.
I continue to see this in many, though not all, patients with aortic valve disease. Though I've more frequently witnessed either stalled progression or reversal of aortic valve stenosis (stiffness), I've now seen a handful of people with aortic valve leakiness (insufficiency) also reverse.
Prior to vitamin D, I had NEVER witnessed any aortic valve disease stop or reverse.
Go read the rest of the story.
Dr. Davis has the courage to, essentially, go it alone. In his line of work, nobody — especially doctors — care. Goddammit; they don''t really care. They spend 12 years getting their ticket punched, and what they care about is maintaining their position. To the extent they stray from the mainstream, they potentially compromise their position. They don't even want to consider simple, natural alternatives.
They want to practice medicine. How literal.
