Vitamins D3 and K2 For Diseased Hearts — A Case Report

I’d logged too few hours of good sleep for two nights in a row. So last night, I prowled and caroused early at the Usual Haunts—no mask or helmet on my GPX cafe-racer motorbike here in Rawai Beach, Thailand.

I returned about 21.30, intending for a 22.00 retirement with an 8-hr soak. Check emails and such. Don’t touch that dial! (Netflix) That’s what got me into sleep deprivation in the first place.

Here’s one of the emails in the queue:

Just thought you’d like to chalk up a small victory.

Several years ago I was on the verge of giving up. I was what my father (a cardiologist) used to call a cardiac cripple. Walking a flight of stairs sent me to bed for 15 minutes to recover.

In desperation, I turned to the internet and found you. I was really interested in what you had to say about K2 and D3 and figured what the hell. It can’t be any worse than the advice cardiologists have been giving to me for 20 years that if anything, sped up my disease. Against my family’s skepticism, I embarked on the regimen. It was after my father’s death, but I was reassured by several conversations he and I had late in his life where he lamented the direction of the medical profession in general, and the field of cardiology in particular. I think he would have approved.

Now coincidentally, I had just had three stents put in my circumflex coronary artery, but given that I’d already had 5 stents that all closed, a triple bypass where two grafts closed, and three heart attacks, I wasn’t celebrating my new-found health.

In any case, something happened. Not instantaneously of course, but slowly, over time, I started to be able to walk increasing distances. Now I’m up to 3 miles at a 20 minute pace, three (and sometimes 4) times per week. A cath done recently because of an afib problem showed that against all hope, my three “new” stents were “clean and open” after three years. And I had never had a stent stay open for more than 6 months.

So I tell anyone who will listen (doctors, by the way, never listen) about D3, K2 and you. I can’t thank you enough. It may not match with your beliefs, but I pray for your well-being, safety, and the “others” yet to discover you and get the same sort of life-changing help I did.

Thank you again.

Let’s get one thing straight right off. Though one could possibly find statements to the contrary in this blog’s 5,000-post archives, I do very much appreciate good thoughts, well wishes, and prayers directed my way.

Feel free to blow me a kiss, too.

These NAZI Say Vitamin D3 Plus K2 Kills Covid; WOKE Issues Warnings

The NAZI suspects are: Lorenz Borsche, Heidelberg, Germany (how suspect is that?), Bernd Glauner, Tübingen, Germany (plot thickens), and Julian von Mendel, Erfurt, Germany (and there you have it, the aristocratic-von-NAZI-alliance).

The three NAZI under suspicion of criminal acts against the WOKE-State had the audacious criminal courage to submit a paper that got published in the Journal Nutrients, an obviously subversive organization, fronted by the “Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute” (MDPI), a well-established NAZI-sympathizer and pawn that goes against all WOKE.

In it, they claim to find that Vitamin D status combined with Vitamin K2 status basically makes Covid less arduous than the hangovers Good-NAZI-Germans are already used to.

Get a load of this NAZI propaganda:

COVID-19 Mortality Risk Correlates Inversely with Vitamin D3 Status, and a Mortality Rate Close to Zero Could Theoretically Be Achieved at 50 ng/mL 25(OH)D3: Results of a Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

Background: Much research shows that blood calcidiol (25(OH)D3) levels correlate strongly with SARS-CoV-2 infection severity. There is open discussion regarding whether low D3 is caused by the infection or if deficiency negatively affects immune defense. The aim of this study was to collect further evidence on this topic. […]

Regression suggested a theoretical point of zero mortality at approximately 50 ng/mL D3. Conclusions: The datasets provide strong evidence that low D3 is a predictor rather than just a side effect of the infection. Despite ongoing vaccinations, we recommend raising serum 25(OH)D levels to above 50 ng/mL to prevent or mitigate new outbreaks due to escape mutations or decreasing antibody activity. […]

Even when calcium blood levels are high, the culprit for undesirable vascular calcification is not vitamin D but insufficient blood levels of vitamin K2. Thus, daily vitamin D3 supplementation in the range of 4000 to 10,000 units (100 to 250 µg) needed to generate an optimal vitamin D3 blood level in the range of 40–60 ng/mL has been shown to be completely safe when combined with approximately 200 µg/mL vitamin K2 [80,81,82]. However, this knowledge is still not widespread in the medical community. […]

As future mutations of the SARS-CoV-2 virus may not be susceptible to the acquired immunity from vaccination or from a preceding infection, the entire population should raise their serum vitamin D level to a safe level as soon as possible. As long as enough vitamin K2 is provided, the suggested D3 levels are entirely safe to achieve by supplementation. […]

Fuckin’ NAZI. How long must WOKE have to put up with them?

Vitamin K1 vs. Vitamin K2

I’ve written a healthy bit on the enormous benefits of vitamin K2 (MK-4) Menatetrenone. To access those posts, click here. Via Dr. Eades’ excellent Twitter feed, I just got wind of this study on K1 (Phylloquinone) and its ability to modestly slow the progression of coronary artery calcium (“CAC” – 6% less progression than the control). Conclusions: Phylloquinone supplementation slows the progression of CAC in healthy older adults with preexisting CAC, independent of its effect on total MGP concentrations. There’s also a media writeup on the affair. Let’s probe. Speaking to at the recent Vitafoods show in Geneva, vitamin K expert Professor Cees Vermeer from VitaK at the University of Maastricht explained that matrix Gla protein (MGP) in the vessel walls is a hot topic. “It is the most powerful inhibitor of soft tissue calcification presently known, and it definitely needs the vitamin K to be active in that way. So, vessel walls have only MGP to defend themselves against calcification,” he said. So, what’s “MGP,” or, matrix gla protein? Lets close the loop, and Wikipedia will do just fine. Matrix gla protein (MGP) is a protein found in numerous body tissues that requires vitamin K for its optimum…

Hot Off The Presses: Stephan (The Great One) on K2

Well, I can’t recall a blog post ever getting so much attention, both off blog and on. For the on-blog activity, just read the comments. For the off-blog goings on, see Robert M’s comment that sparked off a whirlwind. Let me back up. I had emailed Stephan even before publishing that entry (an entire day before, actually). Even though he’s a PhD candidate in neurobiology and has lots of access to the full texts of studies via his academic institution, he didn’t have access to this one (he mentioned it was published in a rinky dink journal), but clearly Robert M did. So, after a few back & forths with Stephan, mostly speculation, Robert’s comment goes up and then the mad dash to get Stephan the full text. Thanks, Robert (who also maintains — at a glance or two — a very fine blog). Let me make something clear before I continue. When I mention that Stephan and I have been emailing back & fort, this is not to imply in any way that we’re peers or that I have much to offer Stephan beyond a “hey; heads up, mate.” My style is slash & burn; hit & run. But,…

Vitamin K2 and Massive Reduction in Heart Disease: Leading Edge

I had wanted to do another installment of held over questions from readers this morning (sorry, folks), but I just have to get this out now. Actually, I caught wind of this a few weeks back, set it aside, forgot about it, and reader Ankit brought it to my attention in email last night. Before I get into it, let’s address something. This applies to my blog and a number of others out there. This is leading edge stuff. That is, you are learning of strong associations with resultant likely benefits now, all the while most of your friends, family, and acquaintances will scoff, dismiss, or otherwise ignore you if you bring it up; and yet, in 3-5 year’s time they will think they’ve made a big discovery once the material is distilled and dumbed down sufficiently that the regurgitators in the news media can even begin to get it right. Vitamin D is an example. Exploding in the news, but as yet, woefully mis-reported most of the time. I’ve shown through a lot of posts on D over the months that it’s about the level of 25 (OH) D in ng/ml in your blood that counts, and it’s not…

Menatetrenone (K2, MK-4) Shown to be Beneficial in Pre-Leukemia

Menatetrenone, a vitamin K2 analog, ameliorates cytopenia in patients with refractory anemia of myelodysplastic syndrome. Abstract: Vitamin K2 induces differentiation of leukemic cell lines and apoptosis of immature blasts in myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). We recently reported a case of MDS-refractory anemia (MDS-RA) with trilineage hematologic response to oral administration of menatetrenone, a vitamin K2 analogue. To determine a possible role of this agent in treatment of MDS-RA, we conducted a prospective randomized trial assessing the safety and efficacy of menatetrenone. A total of 18 consecutive patients newly diagnosed with MDS-RA were randomized to receive either 45 mg of oral menatetrenone (group 1) or no menatetrenone (group 2). Administration of menatetrenone was well tolerated. Of the nine patients in group 1 (56%), five improved with menatetrenone treatment while only one (11%) of the group 2 patients improved. Three patients (33%) showed a major response in absolute neutrophil count (ANC), two (22%) showed a major response in hemoglobin concentration, and two of the nine (22%) showed a major response in platelet count. The ANC of group 1 patients rose after treatment, while that of group 2 patients decreased slightly at follow-up after 16 weeks (p=0.03). Significant improvement was also seen in final…

Harping on Vitamin K2

More on Vitamin K2

No need to do much here but point you to the goods. Stephan (who else?) asks: “Can Vitamin K2 Reverse Arterial Calcification?” 2 MK-4 (and perhaps other menaquinones like MK-7) may turn out to be an effective treatment for arterial calcification and cardiovascular disease in general. It’s extremely effective at preventing osteoporosis-related fractures in humans. That’s a highly significant fact. Osteoporosis and arterial calcification often come hand-in-hand. Thus, they are not a result of insufficient or excessive calcium, but of a failure to use the available calcium effectively. In the warfarin-treated rats described above, the serum (blood) calcium concentration was the same in all groups. Osteoporosis and arterial calcification are two sides of the same coin, and the fact that one can be addressed with K2 MK-4 means that the other may be as well. Both osteoporosis and arterial calcification may turn out to be symptoms of vitamin K2 deficiency, resulting from the modern fear of animal fats and organs, and the deterioration of traditional animal husbandry practices. So eat your pastured dairy, organs, fish roe and shellfish! And if you have arterial calcification, as judged by a heart scan, you may want to consider supplementing with additional K2 MK-4…

Vitamin K2, Menatetrenone (MK-4)

Since my last but fairly recent vitamin K2 post, Stephan has posted on K2 from the perspective of cardiovascular disease. Take a good look at it, as well the references he cites. Did you read his other posts on K2, as I suggested? If not, maybe now is the time. I previously wrote: You really owe it to yourself to look into this. Think of it this way: 60 years ago they were curing cavities in teeth by getting them to re-calcify using this exact thing. Now, think of what happens with a vitamin D deficiency; rickets, right? rubbery bones. Calcium. Other mineral salts. What you will find is that these vitamins, in combination, essentially cause your minerals to go everyplace they should, and no place they shouldn’t (such as the walls of your arteries). Now here’s some of the research Stephan dug up. Tissue-specific utilization of menaquinone-4 results in the prevention of arterial calcification in warfarin-treated rats. (link) Dietary intake of menaquinone is associated with a reduced risk of coronary heart disease: the Rotterdam Study. (link) High dietary menaquinone intake is associated with reduced coronary calcification. (link) Matrix Gla-protein: the calcification inhibitor in need of vitamin K. (link) Coincidentally,…

Doubling of Vitamin D for Children Is Urged; I Also “Urge” K2, Menatetrenone (MK-4)

Yet again, something I blogged about 18 months ago may just now be coming to the mainstream. Stay tuned, and it’s not the only thing. Within another 18 months, you might hear a bombshell about K2, Menatetrenone (MK-4) as well. More on that, below. Here are my past entries on Vitamin D. Politicized Science: How the Sun Might Save Your Life Vitamin D An elegant slice of evolution “Loving Lard” The first of those is the most important. Feel free to go take a look at how I used to blog (political), but the important thing is the article I linked. How-a-bouts a couple of quick excerpts? For decades, researchers have puzzled over why rich northern countries have cancer rates many times higher than those in developing countries — and many have laid the blame on dangerous pollutants spewed out by industry. But research into vitamin D is suggesting both a plausible answer to this medical puzzle and a heretical notion: that cancers and other disorders in rich countries aren’t caused mainly by pollutants but by a vitamin deficiency known to be less acute or even non-existent in poor nations. […] What’s more, researchers are linking low vitamin D status…

2,400 Employees Is A Lot When There’s Nothing To Worry About

There’s a true story out there, likely never reported on even Fox—just as bad—News, that certain entities had sought to obtain all the documents from Pfizer for their SAFE AND EFFECTIVE!!! mRNA jab that got authorized for “emergency use” way back in December of 2020. We’re nearly a year and a half into that “emergency.”

It’s a fuck-ton of pages, like 400,000. In opposing the request for the documents, FDA wanted to distribute them in batches of 500 pages per month, a schedule that would take decades. I can’t recall. It was like 50-70 YEARS!!! before the documents attesting to an ongoing EMERGENCY use would be made available. The FDA took 108 days to thoroughly review every single page of the 400,000 to ensure they’re TOTALLY SAFE AND EFFECTIVE!!! I’m absolutely sure.

(Yes, this is your world, now, voters.)

The judge called fucking bullshit. Duh.
