Dangers of Vitamin A, D, & Fish Oil

Recently, I have been learning about Vitamins A, D, E, and more about fish oil. I would like to share some of the information with you.

I have probably expressed my opinion about fish oil before, but I want to reiterate the dangers. I have promoted Vitamin D and downplayed Vitamin E. I have never studied or promoted Vitamin A other than when promoting a multivitamin. I have clear opinions on all of these at this point.

Vitamin A is not a vitamin. It is a hormone. It is also one step up from a poison, and in reality, technically, it really is a poison. It causes liver disease and cranial hypertension. I always wondered why Vitamin A gave me a headache, now I know. It’s the cranial hypertension.

Chemotherapy is basically a form of Vitamin A. People with skin problems have been prescribed Retin-A and other Vitamin A poisons. We have thought, because it is Vitamin A, it is good for us. Wrong!

I highly recommend avoiding supplements containing Vitamin A. I would suggest avoiding foods high in A, but it would severely limit our diet. I do discourage carrot juice, liver, and recommend limiting dairy. I just promoted a multivitamin and was even taking it myself. When I would take it, my head would hurt. I figured it was the A since I’ve never been able to take A. Needless to say, neither I, nor my family will be taking this multivitamin.

I have been a strong advocate of Vitamin D3 5000IU for years. I have even shook my head and argued when muscle testing showed that I or whoever I was testing didn’t need D. Everyone is Vitamin D deficient, right? That was what I had been taught. Well, I no longer argue or shake my head. Vitamin D isn’t all it has been cracked up to be. Don’t get me wrong, we must have it, but supplementing is not the way to get it. Does that mean I will not take another D3 supplement? No! I have been taking 1 a week since the days are getting shorter. I will probably start muscle testing before I take even 1.

Both A and D are hormones. You don’t want to disrupt the body’s natural production of hormones of any kind. Both cause Calcium to build up and we do not need Calcium in our arteries and certainly do not want a calcified heart. Calcium is another supplement I highly recommend avoiding. We do NOT need to supplement Calcium! This is another mark against my multivitamin.

Vitamin E is something we do need to supplement, but you have to search for a clean source. All Vitamin E is NOT created equal. The medical field discouraged the use of Vitamin E and began promoting fish oil instead. This should have been our first clue that Vitamin E is good and fish oil is bad. A mainstream medical doctor, nurse practitioner, RN, LPN, etc. has no clue what the body needs when it comes to nutrients/vitamins. And they certainly don’t know which vitamins are clean. We had a nurse practitioner tell my mom to take a certain kind of multivitamin that I would never allow her to take. They aren’t trained in that area. So when they say to take a certain supplement, like fish oil, don’t accept that blindly.

Fish oil is laced with mercury and is rancid. It does more harm than good. We don’t need it. I usually say, “I’m not a fish, I don’t need fish oil.”

So, don’t allow yourself to be drawn into taking things that could harm you. It may, like Vitamin A, make you feel good for a little while, but it won’t last. Be careful! If you want to learn more about this, go to and listen to the podcasts.

Until next time, have a healthy and blessed week!
