treated my Vit D ABSORPTION difficulty using a healing modality called NAET. It
combines acupuncture with other elements that frankly sound a bit like
“voodoo”, but in my case it worked. (At the time, I was feeling soo weak
and very badly most ALL of the time, I’d have tried anything that did not
involve an actual human sacrifice! ((And NAET is grounded in very sane and
humane wellness principles.)) I also had excellent NAET practitioners. (If you
want more info about NAET, go to the inventor’s website . There’s lots
of info there, and a directory. Some practitioners are much better than others,
If there is one near you, you could, if you like, call & ask have they have
successfully treated Vit absorption problems, and about your particular form of
Vit D deficiency…) NAET might provide “the missing link” fro you,
as it did for me. (Later on Network Chiropractic care was also another key
bridge back to wellness for me. I mention it because it was the last part of
the package of my particular blessed full recovery.) NAET is not for everyone,
and I know there are some other GI (gastro-intestinal track) cleans & detox
methods to help with VIt D absorption issues. Other modalities are probably out
their as well. It is worth exploring “alternatives”. (You deserve to
feel better; everyone does. And again, I know from firsthand experience how
horrible Vit D deficiencies can make you feel) I wish EVERYONE reading this and
still searching for their own way out of the misery this (& other) basic
Vit. deficiencies, all the best, and (truly) Godspeed in finding a cure or
combo of cures (as in my case) that works for you!!
Steroid isolation , depending on context, is the isolation of chemical matter required for chemical structure elucidation, derivitzation or degradation chemistry, biological testing, and other research needs (generally milligrams to grams, but often more  or the isolation of "analytical quantities" of the substance of interest (where the focus is on identifying and quantifying the substance (for example, in biological tissue or fluid). The amount isolated depends on the analytical method, but is generally less than one microgram.  [ page needed ] The methods of isolation to achieve the two scales of product are distinct, but include extraction , precipitation, adsorption , chromatography , and crystallization . In both cases, the isolated substance is purified to chemical homogeneity; combined separation and analytical methods, such as LC-MS , are chosen to be "orthogonal"—achieving their separations based on distinct modes of interaction between substance and isolating matrix—to detect a single species in the pure sample. Structure determination refers to the methods to determine the chemical structure of an isolated pure steroid, using an evolving array of chemical and physical methods which have included NMR and small-molecule crystallography .  : 10–19 Methods of analysis overlap both of the above areas, emphasizing analytical methods to determining if a steroid is present in a mixture and determining its quantity.
