CAUTION.  Do not load body up with indicated missing ingredient/vitamin/mineral/herb, as some ingested in excess (too quickly in wrong proportions) are stored in and not excreted by body and can become toxic.

Vitamin A - "Conversion of carotenes to Vitamin A takes place in the upper intestinal tract in the presence of bile salts and fat-splitting enzymes. While early studies on this biological process suggested a 4:1 ratio of beta carotene to Vitamin A conversion, later studies revised this to 6:1 or perhaps even higher...
Periods of stress, rigorous exercise and fevers deplete this critical nutrient even more making a daily dose of fermented cod liver oil, arguably the best and most easily obtained whole food which supplies Vitamin A in adequate amounts (sources), extremely important.  Other excellent sources are...butter, egg yolks, grass fed cream and milk, liver...Note that supermarket butter would contain little Vitamin A as cows are only be able to produce this nutrient if grazing on green grass. This is why synthetic Vitamin A is added to pasteurized milk even if organic. Synthetic Vitamin A is not a good stand-in for true Vitamin A either as synthetic vitamins are the chemical mirror images of the real, natural versions and can cause imbalances over time."
Autism Symptoms re Vitamin A after vaccination - 9/1/2016 "Loss of eye contact, unresponsiveness to sounds or other stimuli, and the sudden inability to walk are common observations by parents of young children after a round of vaccinations...Your child suddenly starts to regress...Dr. Megson has developed a framework for treating autism based on...blocked Vitamin A pathways in the brain...Spring-boarding off earlier research by Ron Evans which found that language centers in the brain were dependent on Vitamin A pathways, Dr. Megson examined the diets of the autistic children in her practice. She noted that while these children were getting plenty of Vitamin A, it was the synthetic version found in fortified foods and multi-vitamins. It was not the natural form of Vitamin A found in liver, kidney, milk fat (small amounts), and cod liver oil...The beta carotene in vegetables, while natural, is not true Vitamin A either. It is a precursor of Vitamin A that must be converted by the body, and this conversion is very inefficient or does not occur at all for many people, particularly young children whose digestion is still developing...Cod liver oil contains the most concentrated form of natural Vitamin A of any food as well as the special form of Vitamin A named 14 hydroxy retro-retinol, which turns on memory T-cells;
this is what Dr. Megson decided to give her patients:
2-5 years old: 1/2 tsp per day (2,500 IU Vitamin A/day)
5-10 years old: 3/4 tsp per day (3,750 IU Vitamin A/day)
10-12 years old: 1 tsp per day (5,000 IU Vitamin A/day)
The results indicated improvements in eye contact, overall health, reduction in asthma symptoms, and better language skills (with receptive language skills preceding expressive language ability) for those children who received the cod liver oil...
Ive treated several infants now who went in and got their vaccines who lost eye contact, stopped turning to sounds, became unresponsive.  With .85 cc, less than 1/5 of a teaspoon [cod liver oil] once per day either rubbed on the belly or in the bottle for 2-3 days all of it comes back (1)...Many of the brands of cod liver oil on the market now contain synthetic Vitamin A. Dr. Megson specifically warns...Following brands are confirmed by the Weston A. Price Foundation to contain natural Vitamin A:
Green Pasture Products: Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil (plain)
NutraPro International: Virgin cod liver oil
Rosita Real Foods: Extra Virgin cod liver oil...
having a bottle of cod liver oil containing natural Vitamin A on hand is a smart strategy. Giving your child small doses of cod liver oil several days before the shots as a preventative would no doubt be a wise move too...Click here to watch Dr. Mary Megson."

[CAUTION.  Excess (over 10,000 units/day, consistently over a long period of time, esp. if synthetic) vitamin A can be toxic unto death as it is stored in body.]

Vitamin D

D3 - @ The Merck Veterinary Manual -
Cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) is used both as a dietary supplement and a rodent-icide.
It appears to be toxic at a much lower dose when consumed in a bait form than when ingested as a technical grade agent. Most rodenticide baits contain 0.075% cholecalciferol. Incidence of vitamin D3 toxicosis in animals is relatively less than that of anticoagulant and bromethalin toxicosis. Relay toxicosis from vitamin D3 has not been documented. One international unit (1 IU) of vitamin D3 in nutritional supplement is equivalent to 0.025 mcg of cholecalciferol. 
Cholecalciferol toxicosis is characterized by hyperphosphatemia and hypercalcemia, leading to renal failure, cardiac abnormalities, hypertension, CNS depression, anorexia, vomiting, diarrhea, and lethargy. The increased calcium and phosphorus can lead to calcification of soft tissue, notably the highly vascular areas of kidneys and lungs, as well as within the walls of the great blood vessels.
Clinical signs generally develop within 1836 hr of ingestion; initial signs can include depression, anorexia, polyuria, and polydipsia...Nausea, vomiting, hematemesis, and depression are common as the clinical signs progress...May require decontamination (induction of emesis and administration of activated charcoal) and monitoring of serum calcium, phosphorus, and renal values. Emesis can be induced within 2 hr of exposure with 3% hydrogen peroxide or apomorphine...Activated charcoal at 12 g/kg is an appropriate initial dose for decontamination, and a 2nd half dose after ~68 hr may be helpful. In addition, use of cholestyramine, a bile acid sequestrant, may be useful to decrease the body burden of vitamin D3 that undergoes enterohepatic recirculation with bile acids. [One can derive vitamin D3 from daily outdoor sunshine.)

Vitamin K - 8/23/2016 - "Vitamin K is given to newborns to prevent Vitamin K Deficiency Bleeding (VKDB). Prior to 1999, the term Hemorrhagic Disease of the Newborn was used for this condition.  VKDB is defined as bleeding from any source stopped by the administration of vitamin K.
Vitamin K is a fat-soluble group of vitamins (Vitamin K1 and K2) that are essential for the production of the factors needed to clot blood.  There are 3 types of VKDB: early, classic, and late. Late onset VKDB is the key reason for vitamin K supplementation shortly after birth.
This condition can present anywhere from 8 days up to 6 months of age.
While extremely rare, late onset VKDB is often fatal (20% of cases) or results in serious morbidity (40% of cases). Bleeding in the brain is often the first sign of VKDB...
Phylloquinone, the safe and natural form of vitamin K1, is not present in the vitamin K shot...The vitamin K shot contains no natural vitamin K1 at all.  Instead, the shot contains phytonadione, a synthetic vitamin K1 analog. Phytonadione can cause severe, sometimes fatal, allergic reactions when injected into a muscle or vein (2)
According to Dr. Joseph Mercola D.O., it is better to take (natural) K1 orally or injected subcutaneously (just under the skin).
According to the Cochrane Collaboration (an international committee of medical doctors of the highest caliber): (and) Vitamin K expert Dr. Cees Vermeer PhD :'Very similar rates of protection against classical and late hemorrhagic disease can be achieved by giving repeated oral doses, either 1 milli-gram weekly (or 25 micro-grams daily). Undertaking this form of oral prophylaxis requires that parents accept responsibility for ensuring the course is completed'."



Copper Anemia, balding, prematurely gray, general weakness, skin sores, diarrhea, impaired respiratory function, and osteoporosis. [CAUTION.  Copper is a trace mineral and needs to be taken in
minimal portions, with other offsetting vitamins, over time, as a dash, not in bulk .] 
(It seems that in fact copper is NOT typically a deficiency, as indicated/implied at this web site, but rather the opposite: excess/imbalance.) - "Almost 90 % of the copper imbalances are on the toxic side. How do you get too much copper? Drinking water is one source. If your area has 'hard' water, it can play a role in copper toxicity...If water is the problem, drink bottled water."  (CAUTION.  Much of bottled water is 'public' municipal water. 
Read label.) - Excess copper
can be reduced by changing diet + offset with complimentary minerals such as zinc.
