    I have been feeling rick sick since having a flu/fever about a month ago. Turns out I am feeling on the mend after taking cod liver oil. I think I had a vitamin A deficinecy, I have been suffering with light sensitivity for a while now. I was taking large dose vitamin D, on a low fat diet doing gerson therapy. It turns out that you need to take vitamin A and D together, taking one will deplete the other. It also turns out we don't really convert beta carotene into vitamin A, especially when not taking fat at the same time. So don't listen to people who say eating carrots is enough for your vitamin A. Get extra virgin cod liver oil that has its vitamin A and D intact.

    Also since taking more healthy fatty foods my teeth have been yellowing less. You need A, D and K together in whole foods, liver and cod liver oil being one of the best. I don't think butter cuts it because they are fed hay which has less nutrition in winter.

    Vitamin K2-MK7
    tells calcium where to go, bones or cardiovascular surfaces.
    Supplementation with K2-MK7 removes calcium from already existing cardiovascular surfaces.
    Status and progress can be checked using test:
    Coronary CT calcium scan
    Calcium Agatston score
    This test is not paid by insurance.
    It does not need doctor's script.
    They do that on request, cost $100

    In my neighborhood:
    Princeton Radiology
    You can call them asking for other places.
