Vitamine D is een vetoplosbare vitamine welke onder invloed van zonlicht kan worden aangemaakt in de huid. Alleen in de periode mei tot en met oktober is de zon krachtig genoeg om te zorgen voor een adequate vitamine D aanmaak. Enkele voedingsmiddelen leveren daarnaast ook vitamine D, helaas is het vrijwel onmogelijk om voldoende vitamine D uit deze voedingsmiddelen te halen. Om die reden zijn we voor een goede vitamine D voorziening afhankelijk van vitamine D uit voedingssupplementen.

Het afweersysteem in de darmen kan een stof aanmaken die ervoor zorgt dat miljarden bacteriën die in het orgaan leven getolereerd worden. De stof komt onder andere vrij bij de afbraak van het aminozuur 'tryptofaan', dat zit in vlees, bananen, brood en kaas. Dit ondervonden onderzoekers van de afdeling Maag-, Lever- en Darmziekten van het Erasmus MC.

Most articles you read on fibromyalgia (FM) will focus on symptoms such as, vitamin deficiencies, hormone imbalance, mineral resorption, or lowered cell function. Then they talk about the symptoms of these symptoms: muscle pain, back pain, sleeplessness, depression, chronic fatigue, irritable bowel, etc. The problem is that with this disease, until we discover its underlying cause, we are left in the dark chasing never-ending symptoms. Time and time again you will read, "No one knows the cause of fibromyalgia…." and so fibromyalgia sufferers believe that they are left with an endless revolving door of symptom care, as their condition worsens, they rush from one temporary relief to the next.

The truth is that the underlying cause of fibromyalgia has been found and thousands of people have been helped. This discovery stemmed from a certain chiropractor's work on Degenerative Disk Disease (DDD) in the 1980's. Dr. Brice Vickery found that an alarming number of his patients had a consistent severe imbalance in the pancreas meridian points for protein, carbohydrates, and fat (these points were discovered by Reinholdt Voll M.D.) These same patients would not hold their chiropractic adjustments. Suspecting structural changes in the spinal disks, Vickery used the CAT scan and MRI. He knew that structural changes must be present and that he needed an adequate testing method and so developed the BEV Tests and the Confirmatory Challenge Tests (both of which have been published in professional journals in 1989 and 1991) These tests showed Grade 1 intradiskal lesions (lesions inside the disks) in all the patients with pancreatic point imbalances. Vickery deduced that even if his patients were eating enough dietary protein, their pancreatic ability to produce digestive enzymes must be inhibited to the point that complete digestion of protein, carbohydrates and fats was impossible, leaving them deficient in systemic protein.

Vickery knew that food must be broken down to its basic components of amino acids in order to be reassembled into systemic proteins by the body. Partially broken down food is at best useless and at worst irritating to the system. If the system does not have the proper materials, it cannot provide maintenance, protection, and repair services to the body. Immune cells, hormones, fluid regulators, brain functions, energy production, structural integrity, clotting factors, nervous tissue, joint receptors, enzymes, and on and on, these things require adequate amounts of systemic protein. If just a small amount of the food we eat is being completely digested, then we will only have a small number of systemic proteins to take care of the huge job of maintaining our bodies in a state of good health. If we don't have the systemic proteins that our body needs to regulate, repair, protect and maintain our system, we cannot maintain good health. We can only get these proteins if our body breaks its food down fully into the basic building blocks, amino acids. This can only happen if the pancreas and duodenum are able to make the proper enzymes to complete digestion
