Sunlight

Just back from a holiday with a bit too much sun.
I wasn't sunbathing at all I can assure you - I try to cover my skin and wear medically effective sunglasses to block all types of lightwaves. The glasses are to protect my extremely light sensitive eyes, which produce one of the seven forms of vitamin D in the body resulting in big swings in my condition.

As I am generally physically better after more than a year on my personalised drug treatment (hooray!), I was trying to be more active and sociable with my family on holiday. Unfortunately the kickback from the excess of sun has knocked me for six. Back to trying to have a normal life while keeping myself away from too much UV light (which also includes some fluorescent lights).

Has anyone else noticed an increase in pains or depression or other physical changes about one or two days after getting an excess of sunshine - maybe by the sea with the extra reflections from the water? Sometimes the sunlight and changeable weather at the turn of the seasons have a similar effect.

  2. Can definitely relate to this. I tend to experience a cummulative effect. I won't notice so much of a difference on the first day or 2 of heightened sun exposure, but then after those few days I'll gradually get worse and the head is the first to go - that and feeling extremely cold. Emily x

  3. I agree, for some people it will not be obvious the day after. But most folks don't consider this possible effect of light at all. It seems more obvious to make a link to what they ate the day before, or how much sleep they got the night before, or whether they have had a stressful time lately. I understand that you have learned a lot more than others about these complex interactions in the body through doing the Marshall Protocol, like me. :-)
