Just letting you know....
What is being discussed here is the coimbra approach.
The levels of vitamin D given for this are far more than what we take to maintain a high vitamin D level.
On the coimbra approach it is done under the supervision of a doctor and yes calcium should be avoided.
We on OMS take daily anywhere from 1000iu - 10 000iu
If we take a mega dose because of level is too low it's usually 50 000iu for one or two days depending on how far we are from being in the safe zone.
We don't mega dose continually, the coimbra approach is more like that.
2 bananas a day is fine calcium wise, sugar wise it's not as good as just having one.
Hope this all answers what you were wishing to know.
