In a word - no. What is done is done and what's in must come out! Peppermint or ginger tea help settle your stomach a little, the temper is due to hormal imbalances and has to work its self out. Rest and pamper yourself for 24-48 hours is the... (more)

Sitting in a hot shower running over you. It is only a mask but it helps. I am a celiac. Usually when I ingest gluten (I am very careful not to) you just have to ride it out. I would drink a lot of water. Applesause. Hope you feel better soon. (more)

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)

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'm extremely sensitive to gluten, and that reaction sounds about right. Any time I accidentally ingest the stuff it takes about 3-5 days for me to feel better. (I hope you feel better sooner than that!)
