Vitamin A (aka “The Love Vitamin”) This vitamin is commonly known as the “universal” or “love” vitamin, as coined by humanologist Bethany Argisle. One of the most important nutrients for optimum health is a daily dose (or more) of love. This vital human emotion/expression/experience is necessary for the optimal functioning of people and all of their cells, tissues, and organs. It is found in most of Nature-in foods, domestic animals, friends, and family- and is used to heal a wide variety of diseases. There are no toxic effects, but deficiency can cause a wide range of aliments.
Sources. As stated, L is found in a great variety of sources but must be developed and nurtured to be available. Fear, anger, worry, self-concern, and many other human emotions can destroy vitamin L. It is found readily in most moms and dads and is highly concentrated in grandmothers and grandfathers. Sisters and brothers may be a good source of vitamin L, although often this is covered up in early years, developed in the teens, and more available in adulthood. Massage therapy is a particularly good source of vitamin L. Vitamin L is also found in cats, dogs, and horses, in flowers and birds, and in trees and plants. In food, it is especially found in home-cooked or other meals where vitamin L is used consciously as an ingredient. It is digested and absorbed easily and used by the body in its pure state, being eliminated almost unchanged; in this, it is unique among the vitamins. It is also made by friendly bacteria and all positive reactions and attitudes in the body.
Functions. This vitamin acts as the “universal” vitalizing energy. Vitamin L helps to catalyze all human functions and is particularly important to heart function and the circulation of warmth and joy. Digestion is very dependent on appropriate doses of vitamin L, as is the function of the nervous system. Adrenaline, the brain endorphins (natural tranquilizers and energizers), and other hormones are enhanced by vitamin L as well. A wide variety of other bodily and life functions are dependent on vitamin L, and is extremely important to the healing process.
Uses. The list of uses is even longer than that of the functions. Vitamin L is an important nutrient in all-human relations, domestic and international. We should definitely put it in the drinking supply! It is a vital ingredient in all health practitioners, doctors, clinics, and hospitals Love is also known as the catalytic “vitamin of healing”. It can pass through the healer’s energy vibrations to the recipient. It should be used in all heart problems and a wide variety of medical conditions. Vitamin L is also particularly helpful in all kinds of psychological disturbances. Depression, sadness, under, fear, worry, pain, concern over world affairs, and many stresses of life can be helped by vitamin L therapy. It is particularity important in resolving relationship difficulties. Fear, one of the more difficult problems to treat, usually requires mega doses of vitamin L, as does greed. Deficiency and toxicity. There are rarely any serious problems from excess intake of vitamin L.
Side Effects. May include swooning, a strange feeling in the center of the chest, goose bumps, staring blankly into space, or singing without cause. Usually, though, amounts many times the minimum requirements offer no difficulty and are often helpful.
Deficiency. As with many of the vitamins causes a great many more problems than overdoses. Fatigue, muscle tension, increased likelihood of stress conditions, digestive upset, drug problems, and sexual aberrations are only a few of the possible effects of vitamin L deficiency. Diseases of the heart are of particular concern. Vitamin L can become deficient easily in people under great demand to perform, such as doctors, nurse, and other hospital workers, or in people whose jobs are very cerebral, such as businesspeople, accountants, and stockbrokers. Abrupt withdrawal from regular Vitamin L use could be hazardous, as the love vitamin is somewhat addicting. People have varying sensitivities to decreases in Vitamin L, and deficiency symptoms may occur easily. It is wise to replace any reductions with vitamin L from other sources (a key reason for having compassionate health practitioners). Increased amounts of vitamin L are more easily tolerated by most people, although huge increases should be taken slowly to prevent the side effects just mentioned.
Requirements. The requirements may vary from person to person, according to a wide range of factors. There are specific RDAs for vitamin L, although infants and small children usually require fairly large doses. International hug experts advise a minimum of 4 hugs daily is needed to prevent vitamin L deficiency, 6 hugs a day for maintenance, and 10 hugs a day fro growth. The whole body just works better when there is plenty of LOVE!
