I figured out for my Lat and Long (San Diego) that 15 minutes of shirtless sun per day is generally enough, in the summertime I got it . What about wintertime? Any educated guesses in order to obtain decent level of 25 hydroxy blood levels?

My UVB measurements in the DC area showed that about 1/4 the amount of UVB rays reaches the ground at solar noon on the winter solstice vs. the summer solstice. In San Diego I'd expect the difference to be lower -- perhaps between 1/3 and 1/2.... (more)

I've been gluten-free for almost a year because I suspected that I may have Celiac. Recently, I decided I wanted to determine for sure whether I have Celiac or not. After a gluten exposure, is there any good way to differentiate between the... (more)

If you were truly celiac, you would know it when you ate gluten. Trust me. But that's not to say you aren't gluten-intolerant. And depending on how gluten-intolerant you were, you might be able to eat it with zero noticeable effects- both... (more)

Are there any MEASURABLE ones you know of? I hope so, because that's one more motivation for me to move to Hawaii. My half-baked prediction: we don't know quite enough about the body yet, but something will pop up in the next 10-20 years. (more)

Hey all! So I haven't been tested for gluten intolerance yet, but have rather just avoided it forever because I had a bad experience with it during my childhood. I do know that I am very sensitive to it. Anyway, this morning I accidentally... (more)

Drink a lot of water. Soaking in a bathtub, preferably with epsom salts if you have that, really helps me. Nothing makes it all go away instantly, though, at least as far as I know. Eating anything I don't make is scary for me, so I do understand. (more)

It depends. Are we talking near the equator? Or New York in January? At some point, the body maxes out on how much D3 can be synthesized, so if you were hitting the limit, then spreading out your exposure to the sun would be helpful. But if you... (more)

I don't think that's necessarily the way that 90%-paleo or 80/20-paleo people become strict paleo; then again, I do think what you described is a fairly common experience. Sub-allergy-level "sensitivity" to wheat is a real, discernible set of... (more)

If you're sensitive enough to gluten to get a reaction from a small amount in sushi, then vomiting it back up probably won't help. You'll most likely have plenty left inside to do you harm. I also assume that vomiting is a major stressor that... (more)
