  1. Low D is a sign of low magnesium. Supplement Magnesium not synthetic D.

  2. He shouldn't take the vitamin D is the thing. Any magnesium would be good. In his case LOTS of it!

  3. Magnesium, boron and silica are needed for strong bones.

  4. sounds like one of those kids that grows fast and his bones end up being weak .. not enough essential minerals

  5. Oh no! Skip the D and take magnesium + cofactors (especially borax/boron). Plus diatomaceous earth for silica.

  6. Thank you so much for your responses. This helps! I know the Dr. has prescribed D2, which is synthetic . Would it hurt him to take a small amount of D3 along with Mg, boron, silica (DE), and essential minerals?

  7. I'm learning so much from you guys in this group. So grateful to you for taking the time to enlighten me!! Thank you!

  8. We have Celtic salt… Would that help?

  9. YES ! From 9 to 26
