Our discovery of the power of Vitamin D will be the greatest silver lining to the COVID-19 Pandemic. As more and more COVID-19 patients are found to be Vitamin D deficient, we are starting to understand the importance of Vitamin D.
The Vitamin D Protocol - Dr Lesley Ray Matthews
Dr Leslie Ray Matthews, a trauma surgeon at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia
Dr. Matthews has spoken nationally and internationally regarding his patented treatment of Vitamin D in extreme trauma. Some of the organizations that have requested his expertise are: The Center of Disease Control, The U.S. Food & Drug Administration, The United Nations, Health and Human Services, and the U.S. Army. His expertise has been sought after especially during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
“I’ve met with a lot of government officials who didn’t know about what vitamin D can do,” Matthews says. “I’ve been giving lectures to educate them. You have to have a passion for it. Most people, once they see the evidence, accept what I’m saying. For instance, in our hospital, our mortality rate is down 42% with critically ill patients for all traumas with our new vitamin D protocol.”
Vitamin D controls the Immune Response System in the fight against COVID-19 and all other illnesses
Dr Matthews biggest message to people is that Vitamin D is NOT a vitamin. Vitamin D is a natural steroid hormone that controls over 30% of Human DNA including the Immune and Inflammatory Response systems. It is critical in the human body's ability to fight infections, diseases, and viruses.
"It increases the number of white blood cells able to fight off the CoronaVirus."
Dr Matthews' High-Dose Vitamin D Treatment decreased Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia from 80% down to 20% at Grady Memorial Hospital.
