top       toc       Information concerning the 3 pillars for good health.

On this page of website  www.mercola.com  you see:
If you are concerned about your bones, you must balance this nutritional triad:
  1. Vitamin D
  2. Vitamin K
  3. Calcium

Increasing calcium is good for your bones but not so beneficial for your arteries, which can become calcified, but vitamin K protects your blood vessels from calcifying when in the presence of high calcium levels.

So you really must pay attention to the synergism of all three of these nutrients if you want to optimize your benefits.

I am convinced we are seeing just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to vitamin K and its many valuable functions in your health. It’s truly an exciting area in nutritional science today.

In the meantime it is my STRONG encouragement to make sure you find some regular source of vitamin K2. This will mean eating about four ounces of fermented cheese a day (preferably raw) or taking a high quality vitamin K2 supplement.

It is my strong belief that in ten years time there will be as much passion and appreciation for this stealth vitamin as we have for vitamin D today.


Remark: The cheapest form of vitamin K is in natto. Click here for more info.

top       toc       The synergy of the vitamins D and K.

On page http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21155624 you read about the synergy of the vitamins D and K.


top       toc       The importance of vitamins D and K for the bone health and immune function in inflammatory bowel disease.

On page http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22914505 you read:


Vitamins D and K potentially contribute to the maintenance of bone health in IBD, but this effect may be diminished by other factors such as steroid use, reduced exposure to sunlight, and inflammatory cytokines. Vitamin D and possibly vitamin K are suggested to be involved in the suppression of immune-mediated inflammation and modulation of disease activity.


top       toc       Vitamin K and vitamin D status: associations with inflammatory markers in the Framingham Offspring Study.

On page http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18006902/ you read:  

The observation that high vitamin K status was associated with lower concentrations of inflammatory markers suggests that a possible protective role for vitamin K in inflammation merits further investigation.

top       toc       3p and eczema

On page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eczema you see that there are many 'possible' causes for eczema. 
On that page you read also: 

The cause of eczema is unknown but is presumed to be a combination of genetic and environmental factors.[7]

And you read on that page also: 

There is no known cure for eczema; therefore, treatments aim to control the symptoms by reducing inflammation and relieving itching.

But .......you could try the '3p' strategy. There are good reasons why that could help you. See the next chapters.  

top       toc       Pillar 1 (vitamin D): Sunlight (or UVB)  For Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis).

See this article on website www.mercola.com for more info.
Here in The Netherlands you can buy an UVB lamp at website: http://www.leplantage.nl/ 
Click here to see the UVB lamp. See for more information my page: http://www.news4all.org/mijn-uvb-lamp 
That page is in Dutch, but you could try to read  the by google translated version.

top       toc       Pillar 2 (probiotic (natto)) for eczema.

See this article on website www.mercola.com for more info.
In that article you see:

In adults and older children, you can also increase your body’s good bacteria by eating plenty of properly fermented foods such as natto, kefir and unpasteurized sauerkraut.

I am very much in favour of natto. See: http://www.news4all.org/natto  (This English page I have so far not yet made. 
Just try (with google translate) the Dutch version: http://www.news4all.org/nl-natto 

top       toc       Pillar 3:  Raw milk (a source of gamma-linolenic acid( which might help with eczema).

See this article on website www.mercola.com for more info.
In that article you see: 

Researchers suggest that this may be due to a reduced conversion of LA into GLA and subsequent LCPs, possibly as a result of impaired activity of the enzyme linoleoyl-CoA desaturase (delta6-desaturase).

GLA stands for: gamma-linolenic acid. And the impaired activity of the mentioned enzyme can be caused by (too many) bad bacteria in your gut. The bacterium bacilles subtillis in the natto will help you to get rid of tpp many bad bacteria in your gut.

A good source of gamma-linolenic acid  is raw milk. See: http://www.news4all.org/melk (This is the Dutch version. Just try with google translate.)
