I thought a place for gentle health & well-being reminders was needed. I am kicking it off with this, on a very sunny Sunday at the end of March.   cool

I find it bizarre that we have done so well with sun protection we now have a revival of rickets. All my children spent part of each day of their babyhood in the pram in the garden. I am an outdoors person too so my vitamin d levels are fine.

Ooh sympathy Kaye, I had a bout of psoriasis after my eldest son was born, was not pleasant.

It is amazing indeed how things have turned around Aly too. It makes quite a bit of sense now to see convalescents in old pictures wrapped up and put outside to absorb the sun's rays. I also had some sort of sunlamp therapy because I used to get a lot of coughs as a child. I think getting outside is a good idea anyway, not just for the vitamin D but for many aspects of health. Getting outside and seeing the flowers and trees is good for our mental health too.

My psoriasis is usually better during the summer too, especially since I started to get my hair cut shorter than usual. Unfortunately I still need to be careful when it's sunny since I get cold sores and they can be triggered by too much sun frown

I cans end you some lovely homemade lip balm Mike if you like, it's made from lemon balm and beeswax by my own fair hands and is bril for cold sores. I'm lucky I don't suffer from them, but I have a friend who does and she swears by the balm. PM me with your address and I'll stick you a pot in the post.

Or I can post the recipe if others are interested

I find that nuts and too much chocolate cause me to get cold sores. A real pain as I love nuts of all kinds. I can still eat them but in moderation, same with the chocolate just not quite so much moderation whistle Have you tried making sure you eat lysine rich foods too Mike?
