Where are You?
Recent blood tests showed that I am deficient in Vitamin D. Vitamin D is the sunshine vitamin. We need to expose our bodies to the sun for our skin to absorb the vitamin which is vital for healthy bones and teeth. I have been prescribed 6 months worth of the supplement and need to take it weekly to build up my reserves.
For years, on the advice of health professionals, I have judiciously applied sunscreen and covered up in the sun and yesterday my GP told me to (in the Summer months) expose my face, legs and arms to the sun every morning between 8.00 and 10.00am and every evening after 6.00pm. I guess I was over cautious in the past?
So, now I need to make amends with my old sunshine. After all, he is the life force of nature.
