Dr. Leslie Ray Matthews, a retired doctor born in Indianola, Mississippi, B.B. King’s hometown, has had a goal, a burning passion, to explore and establish the usefulness of large dosages of Vitamin D3 on humans, particularly in the treatment of COVID-19.
Statistics demonstrate that persons who are hospitalized and ultimately die are all vitamin D3 deficient, regardless of vaccination status, according to Dr. Matthews, a worldwide, award-winning surgeon.
“Research has shown that 80 percent of patients that have died from coronavirus or required ICU care were Vitamin D deficient,” said Dr. Matthews referring to a study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.
“Vitamin D3 is the most common nutritional deficiency in the world. Vitamin D pre-deficiency is a pandemic within itself,” he said.
That is why Dr. Matthews initiated a global programme last year to educate people about the benefits of taking Vitamin D on a daily basis. He continues to educate people about the benefits of taking high doses of Vitamin D in the treatment of the Coronavirus and other diseases or chronic illnesses such as traumatic brain injuries, heart attacks, strokes, concussions, ventilator associated pneumonia, sepsis, menopausal symptoms management, ARDS, a life-threatening lung injury, and infections.
Education around the importance of increasing one’s immune system via a high-dose regimen of Vitamin D3 is Dr. Matthews’ primary mission. He calls Vitamin D3 “the miracle vitamin,” and that its effect on the human body should be more widely discussed in order to save lives.
According to him, vaccination will not cure the coronavirus pandemic. Vitamin D3 is required for a strong immune system capable of combating any infection, whether viral, bacterial, fungal, or parasitic. A healthy immune system is incompatible with vitamin D3 deficiency.
Vitamin D3 functions as an anti-stress hormone. When the human body is under stress, such as after a heart attack, coronavirus, delivery, traumatic brain injury, or a gunshot wound, it is essential. Your vitamin D3 level drops by half within the first 24 hours of being admitted to the hospital. Vitamin D3 assists in the body’s response to stress.
Vitamin D3 is an anti-inflammatory agent. It is not a form of treatment. The Federal Drug Administration frowns on the phrase “cure.” Chronic inflammation can be slowed or stopped with vitamin D3. In addition, vitamin D3 can help to decrease and attenuate chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation plays a role in the development of the majority of illnesses. Vitamin D3 reduces chronic inflammation. Wearing face masks, frequently washing your hands, eating a nutritious diet, exercising, social isolation, and getting enough sleep are all things that should be done, he added.
On asking, how could taking Vitamin D3 helps to reduce an individual’s overall health care costs?
He said: “Vitamin D3 deficiency reduces the chances of achieving optimal health. Vitamin D3 decreases hospital length of stay, hospital cost, and the overall mortality rate. A vitamin D3 level less than 18 nanograms/per milliliter increases your risk of death by 30%. Therefore, keeping your Vitamin D3 levels greater than 18 nanograms reduces your risk of death and overall medical cost.”
According to the expert, “half of the world’s 7.8 billion population is Vitamin D3 deficient. I hope to do global education on the importance of Vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 deficiency is a pandemic that must be addressed before we can address the coronavirus pandemic.”
According to a new study from a systematic review and meta-analysis presented at the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) 2021 Annual Meeting, held from October 1 to 4, 2021, in San Diego, California and real-time virtually, also linked Vitamin D Deficiency to Increased Risk for SARS-CoV-2 Infection, COVID-19 Severity and Death.
The researchers concluded in this study that “[The] results [from the analysis] suggest that [individuals] with either vitamin D insufficiency or deficiency present an increased risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection, [COVID-19-related] severity and death.”
