Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
The present level of vit d3 is very low and therefore injections are indicated for fast recovery. If you dont want to take injections, the recovery will be slow.
Here is what you can do.
Tab. D3 must 60k once a week to be chewed for 12 weeks.
Get adequate sun exposure for at least 20 minutes everyday with 20 percent of body surface area exposed daily before 1.
And get the levels checked out after 12 weeks, if its still low, you might have to continue the medications for another 12 weeks.
Add tab. Supracal pro once a day after food for a month for better results.
Best regards.
Dr. Anil kumar jain.
