Yes! I have dealt with eczema and psoriasis for years. I have tried pretty much everything and spent so much money on different remedies and practitioners to heal it. I read a book about Vitamin D3 and started on 50,000IU about 3-4 times a week along with Vitamin K and B complex and the eczema was gone within a couple days of starting the vitamins and the psoriasis that was covering most of my torso is almost completely gone. It has been less than 2 months since I started the Vitamin D. So easy and inexpensive. Vitamin D is not even a vitamin. It is a natural steroid. I also gave my son 50,000 IU for his chronic bronchitis and the next day, that was gone. He takes it 3-4 times a week too.
I have dealt with this itchy problem for years. Over time I started realizing my situation was worse during the winter months when I would spend more time inside. Then I read somewhere on the internet that most people who work indoors do not have enough vitamin D3, which is the sunshine vitamin.
I realized that I should start supplementing and started off at a low dosage of 1,000 IU per day, then 10,000 per day and then finally I jumped it up to 60,000 IU per day and I totally got rid of the problem.
I only boosted my dosage after reading lots of information online, including stuff on the Vitamin D council website, Dr. Mercola, and interesting videos on youtube.
Now that my eczema has been eliminated for good, I have lowered the dosage down to 20,000 IU per day. Oddly enough, the government’s recommendation for this important vitamin is only 400 IU. That amount is just barely enough to keep Rickets away.
As always, do your own research to determine what dosage will help your severly depleted body. Also, it may be a good idea to have a blood test done so you know what your vitamin level is in the first place.
May the Lord bless you on your question for knowledge and health.
First off – I love Earth Clinic. Thanks to all of you who write in and offer advice. This site has helped me on many occasions. Concerning my eczema – I suffered from eczema all over my hands for 5-6 years after the birth of my son. It was extremely embarrassing, itched like crazy and made me absolutely miserable. I wish I could have enjoyed those early years with my son, but I did not because of the horrible itch, pain, and embarrassment. I know it was very much stress related. I tried all kinds of remedies – watch my diet, omega 3’s, and multiple vitamins, etc… When my son went to kindergarten, the stress level went down and my hands got better, but still aggravated. It was not until I went to have a physical and had my Vit. D level checked that I believe I found the answer. Optimal Vit. D level should be over 50, and mine was 20. So I started to supplement with Vit.D and my hands immediately cleared up. Interestingly, so did that “redness and heat” within my body that I always felt was with me. I haven’t had my level checked again but I am still on higher than usual doses. I also learned that if you are overweight, you require more Vit. D because the fat cells absorb a lot of it. Most folks supplement with 1000 a day but I take 5 – 6,000 a day. Also, I learned that going outside can work but you have to live where the sun is just right in relation to your location, has to be the right time of the day, and need 15 minutes of that sun on large parts of your body – like arms and legs. And in the winter in most of the USA, there is no way to get enough Vit D. from the sun. Also, there is a huge deficiency nationwide of Vit. D. And this causes all kinds of illnesses. There is a major epidemic of Vit. D deficiency. I found that when I got my Vit. D. level up, my hands cleared up, and I stopped getting colds, flu, etc… Actually, quite amazing. This is especially true of elderly who hardly ever get any sun and have lower immune function anyway. Bottom line: If you don’t know your Vit. D, get it checked. If below 50, supplement or make intentional effort to get nature’s Vit.D – the sun most every day.
I also notice that summer time usually stops the eczema but comes back in the winter. But chlorine has always made it worse whenever I’ve gone swimming. I think sunlight might help.
i have red blotches of eczema on my arms. It gets really bad in winter and spring. In summer, when I’m out in the pool and sunlight it heals, almost totally goes away. Then comes back again with a vegence in the fall/winter. Does sunlight or chlorine help in healing it?
re: Eczema: Sunlight seems to make my skin more itchy and red, I believe that my skin better in summer because of the relaxing time of year were I seem to have more fun and not because of the sun.
