Anyone here feeling best on high calcium alone without vitamin D?

I feel best with a high calcium intake with no added supplemental vitamin D3.
If I take vitamin D3 I feel decent, but cannot tolerate much calcium and need much more magnesium to avoid feeling anxious, tensed muscles, jittery, low libido, getting cold hands and sleeplessness.
With high calcium only + K2 I can tolerate a lot of calcium and I feel the benefits of it mainly - calm mind, quieting inner chatter, less anxiety, deeper sleep, perked up libido.

Has anybody had the same experience?

High calcium plus high vitamin D - finding this combination problematic. Will stop the vitamin d.

I feel bad with vitamin D too but for some people it's supposed to feel bad. It took me a long time to realize that. If you're healthy already then vitamin D feels good, but if you're unhealthy, vitamin D feels bad but the end result is good. Sort of like how two wrongs can sometimes make a right.

I think sugar and salt (fruits, cheese) and milk and butter and coffee (basically everything that raises CO2 and lowers phosphate) help to make sure the end result of vitamin D is as good as it can be (by keeping phosphate low so that it turns into the non-activated form as opposed to the activated form).

My experience is that you need to supplement Vitamin A as well if you are supplementing Vitamin D. You can look into Chriss Masterjohn's work. There seems to be a requirement for balance between those two. You might as well add Vitamin K2 to that.

Thank you for posting this. I've been wondering about vitamin A for a while now but keep running into conflicting information. The main problem is the Vitamin D is easy to test but Vitamin A is not.

Yes I was aware of that information and most of the time I used vitamin A together with vitamin D in a ratio of 3:1, up to 5:1. Vitamin A seemed to prevent the calcium side effects, but I got yellow hands from it and dry skin and I stopped taking it since then.

I used to experience some higher serotonin symptoms like a year ago when taking vitamin D . Now I dont get those anymore. No idea why . It might have went away as my vitamin D level increased .

Actually I get warm feet and slowed breathing plus increased buteyko pause when I take my vitamin D 5-10 minutes AFTER the calcium, that makes a difference.

Yellow hands would seem to indicate beta carotene in your vitamin A.
