Running low on Vitamin D? What would a Vitamin D deficiency look like? 

This episode is all about your energy, (and your metabolism), and whether you might be overlooking a micronutrient insufficiency at the root cause of some signs and symptoms you have. Did you know Vitamin D is not a vitamin but a hormone? 

My Guest:

Missy Bane is a Functional Diagnostic Practitioner and Holistic Health Coach. She dove into functional medicine in 2012 after her own health crisis and personally experienced the natural healing that she now teaches.

She helps clients “age healthy” by creating a health plan that incorporates not only diet and exercise, but detoxification, sleep, stress, digestion and all the things that contribute to optimal health.

Many clients come to her when they want to dig to the root cause of health issues and no longer want to just treat symptoms, while others focus on long term health and preventing illness.

As an FDN Missy works under a medical director’s license with credentials to run functional labs such as stool tests, neurotransmitter tests, hormone panels and more to uncover hidden stressors that contribute to health issues.

Questions we cover in this episode:

  • So, what was your health crisis? What happened?
  • I brought you here to chat Vitamin D, though I imagine we may go elsewhere…
  • Why does everyone have so much more energy in the summer?
  • What are signs listeners might be deficient in D?
  • Vitamin D or hormone?
  • What does it do?
  • What does it need to work?
  • Optimal ranges and “Norms” where we get into western vs functional medicine
