Sunburn – a Nutritional Deficiency Issue?

Did you know that a sunburn is actually a sign of nutritional imbalance? It means you don’t have enough calcium in your tissues. Tissue calcium provides sun protection. And just because you have enough blood or bone calcium does not necessarily mean you will have enough in your skin. Essential fatty acids (EFA’s) help mobilize calcium to the tissues and the skin, but unfortunately most of us are deficient in EFA’s, calcium, or both.

Easy Sun Protection Protocol

The good news is, there is an easy protocol if you want to protect yourself out in the sun that does not involve toxic chemical lotions. Just take 6 Calcium Lactate and 6 Cataplex F tablets every 2 hours during sun exposure. If you have very fair skin or the sun is especially strong, you can take that same dose every hour. Use in combination with a natural sunblock for best results, depending on your skin type.

What kind of results can you expect from using these products for sun protection? We hear our patients report they would not do without the Cataplex F and Calcium Lactate when they have to go out in the sun. My own experience with this protocol? I can use the gentlest most non-toxic sun block and the supplement protocol combined, and stay out in the sun for hours. I have very fair skin, but I get a healthy rosy glow.
