Which Supplements Or Vitamins Do You Take?

Which Supplements Or Vitamins Do You Take?

There's one vitamin that everyone with eczema should take. It's vitamin D. I know of thousands of people with eczema who have achieved complete remission with it. Some people need as little as 10,000 IU per day but others do well with as much as 30,000 IU per day. Still there are others who need much higher doses but those have to be taken under the supervision of a medical doctor trained to administer very high dose. There are such doctors in many countries. The total number is about 100 doctors with about half of them in Brazil where this got started. I've seen videos of little girls and boys covered all over with lesions. They and their parents got no sleep because the child would be up

all night scratching and crying out with pain. For many, this was happening to them for years. Then they started the vitamin D program and a few weeks to a few months later, there was no eczema left and the children looked completely normal and had big smiles instead of faces of misery.
Vitamin D must be taken with magnesium, about 400 mg per day of any magnesium except magnesium oxide which is poorly absorbed. As for vitamin D, if your eczema is mild, start with 10,000 IU per day. Since the dose has a lot to do with body weight. A light dose is approximately 100 IU per pound of body weight.

To continue: The next higher dose is 200 IU per pound of body weight. These two dose levels are completely safe. I'm currently writing a technical book on vitamin D. Doctors will tell you that it is a toxic amount but they have been programmed by the industry to think that way. I've reviewed about 15,000 peer-reviewed medical journal articles on vitamin D and can tell you there is nothing in the scientific literature that supports this idea of toxicity.
When you need to go to an even higher intake of D, it's about 400 IU per pound of body weight but it needs medical supervision and a restrictive diet. I don't want to go into details of that here.
