Every year around this time I start to long for a holiday in the sun. I think this year more than ever!
One reason why I’d love to get away for a week or two of sun is because of my Vitamin D deficiency. It’s really bad and as I’ve said before it’s made my muscles extremely weak. Living in Canada we don’t get any health benefits from the sun (like the ability to natural make Vitamin D in our skin from sun exposure) from Mid October until about Mid March.
So you can see where I’m going here right? If I went off to some sunny location and spent some time getting “sun therapy” it might help my Vitamin D deficiency right? Pretty smart huh?
Ok well I am taking Vitamin D supplements but considering I have Crohn’s which causes digestion and malabsorption problems it’s going to take a LONG time for those supplements to work.
It’s a pipe dream at any rate. Chris and I can’t afford a holiday right now – even if was just for me … no matter how much I’d love to pack my luggage tonight and catch a flight tomorrow.
Hmmm maybe I should do some research on Tanning beds and see if they can help with Vitamin D deficiency … that might be more affordable.
