Ladies and gentlemen, I have stumbled upon the most amazing and grossest item in my daily regime and I must share. I was on set last week talking to one of my favorite producers about health and wellness, a subject I am obsessed with in which he knows a lot about. I love picking his brain because he is wise to all the workings of the human body, remedies for illness through diet, everything. So long story short, he shared with me an alarming nugget of wisdom. I found out last year I was Vitamin D deficient,
I thought nothing of this and started taking some D Drops. He said this was to be taken very seriously, and that most Americans (and women have the higher percentage here) are Vitamin D deficient due to the overuse of sunscreen and the covering up from the sun. He shared some articles about how over the last 25 years cancer has gone up, mostly due to people not getting the exposure they need form the sun (I’m sure the toxic sunscreens didn’t help out though). The studies showed that out of 2 groups, one who never wore sunscreen and got ample sun each day and the other who covered up all the time and wore sunscreen, the results were a HUGE cancer arrow pointing right to the covered up group! Vitamin D is one of the most important Vitamins in aiding the body to naturally fight cancer cells……and without knowing it I took that away from myself.
So, long story short, he said my supplement wasn’t going to solve my problem and clued me in on an age old secret that was in every cupboard in the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s and seems to have disappeared over time. A fail safe to wellness and energy, and an amazing sourse of Vitamin D and your Omegas. Cod Liver Oil! Eeeeeeeeewwwwwww! But I hold this man’s advice as though it is coming straight from the gods of nutrition, so after we wrapped for the day I went straight to Wholefoods and purchased a bottle of Cod Liver Oil. I began taking it (and giving it to my husband and 2 year old son) the next day. First of all it’s lemon flavored and it tastes totally fine. Secondly, after a few days of taking it, I suddenly and for the first time felt this amazing feeling of wellness. This has never happened to me before, and I try a lot of different healthy things all the time. This time was different. It’s been 2 weeks and the feeling has not gone away. I feel clear, connected, one, full of energy, calm, focused. I feel like a new person. My body must have reeeeaaalllly needed this particular item because it transformed me over night.
Needless to say this will be a part of my family regime for the rest of time and I will be making sure to get my body into the sun more often without so much fear.
