    Same here.


    In this case, I used logic and observation to defend myself against what I perceived as sarcasm. That's sometimes a mistake, since logic infuriates people who are hoping for an emotional response (not that you were). If sarcasm isn't what you intended, I apologize.
    I wasn't. I even used one of the friendly smilies to convey this but, as a dear forum member would say, what you say/mean on forums isn't always how it's interpreted.


    I'm only here to relate my experiences, read about others, and contribute a few observations and theories. If you still have issues with me, please take it to PM.
    I don't have any issues with you and I hope it is reciprocal.

    This thread was started by someone who thinks that D3 caused their rosacea (which may not be the case at all, IMO). They also think that "something isn't right with the pills" and I happen to agree with that, that's why I posted about my experience and then you posted what, to me and one other forum member, sounded like a compendium of what iDan has been writing about since Jan '09.

    No animosity, really, at least from me. I just think that one should be able to question D3 on this forum without fearing jealous scrutiny by their proponents. And that is why I replied to Michael's last post with a "I couldn't agree more."

    I first noticed my nose oozing clear liquid.. and thought "what the heck.. that's weird" Then I started breaking out around my nose and between the eyes.. It finally occurred to me that the VD3 was having some sort of reaction on my skin..

    I stopped VD3 cold turkey.. and my face seem to clear for a bit. Then a few weeks later had a bunch of stress and whamo! face explodes in all out redness, noose resumed it's oozing and the whole nine yards..

    Now after 2 months of this insanity I'm actually considering taking VD3 again to try to fix the problem I feel it started in the first place. Am I crazy?

    3 days in my face is already more red and hotter.. is this vitamin D3 really worth all this headache?

    Like I know sunshine is good for us.. But, does that really mean synthetic man-made sunshine pills are equally good for us? You know cause after reading iDan's stuff on here he explains it can take years for synthetic D3 to help you.. and that you have to ease up the dose. But, even when easing you still suffer a worsening of symptoms.. I know I've been sunburned my fair share in this life and never has it caused me rosacea.. And think about it, humans wouldn't be able to successfully ease up their naturally sunshine exposure right? So why is it like that with the pills? Something isn't right with the pills.

    I don't think our body's quite know how to handle the synthetic vitamin D. At very least it throws off some kinda natural balance.. I think we are meant to be in the sun.. man made stuff is always going to be flawed in some way shape or form.

    Hi O,
    Sorry we sort of took over your thread!
    I am not sure if you said what type of vitamin D you were taking because a number of people at the RF had a bad reaction to anything but the dry tablet VitD3. Something to consider because all the vitD preparations vary somewhat and some people have allergic reactions or sensitivity issues with the fillers and/or preservatives and not the actual VitD3.
    Here is the brand that I use:

    Hey, it's cool.. that's what threads are for right?

    Something interesting just occurred for me.. I have cut back on jogging lately due to all this Rosacea stuff. Cause every time I do my face would get soo red it would almost swell. Since I started Doxycycline about 6 weeks ago the swelling stopped occurring but, I'd still be several shades redder after a short jog (I only do 1 to 2 miles)

    So tonight, I took 1000mg Ester-C with grape seed extract 100mg.. and 1500mg of L-Lysine.. Ran one mile and climbed 3 flights of stairs and looked in the mirror and I was less red than before I left.

    Things that make you go hmm.. right? I've taken these supplements before.. this was actually my last Ester-C tablet in the bottle. So I may try this again and see if it has any lasting results.. Maybe these supplements work better while your heart is pumping.

    Food for thought,

    O

    Hi Matos,
    I'm sorry you had such a bad reaction. Do you know what your blood serum vit D levels were before you began supplementing? It sounds like you definitely do not have any need for supplementing due to the fact that you live in a sunny climate and are probably making more than enough vit D. I would get your levels tested just for your own information.

    Hopefully your rosacea will calm down and return to the calm state you enjoyed before you decided to add this to your regime.

    Best,
    Melissa

    I have been told many times by Prof Ayers, Paul Jaminet and a few others (see links on their sites), that while it is said we get 10,000IU to 20,000IU from 20 minutes of sun exposure, that may not be the case.

    Those with lots of inflammation may not be able to metabolise vitamin D, so when people say time in the sunlight doesn't exacerbate health problems, they may not have upped their stores at all.

    In addition, the 10,000IU sun dose may only occur for a few days, in a healthy person and thereafter the amount the body produces will be significantly lessened.

    Finally, Sunlight no doubt provides benefits that can't be packaged into a tablet. What exactly they are is yet to be seen. I suppose it is a bit like antioxidants. We can get some of them in a tablet, but the fruit etc is thought to provide yet to be discovered benefits.

    It is unfortunate some people experience on going negative effects, from any treatment, including D3 supplements.

    I still believe infection is at the heart of this rotten disease. I see vitamin D as one of the tools. Other factors have to be addressed.
    Previous Numerous IPL.
    Supplements: Niacinamide, Vit K2, low D3, Moderate Dose Vit C, Iodine, Taurine, Magnesium. Very low dose B's. Low dose zinc (to correct deficiency).
    Skin Care: No Cleanser, ZZ cream mixed with Niacinamide gel 4% and LMW HA.

    Treating for gut dysbiosis under specialist care. (This is helping).
    Previous GAPS diet. Testing tolerance of resistant starch.
    Fermented Foods. 2 to 3 days per week, Intermittent fasting -16-18 hours.
