Superman Was More Than a Comic Book, Apparently

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created June 09, 2012 at 12:28 AM

So I tried coconut oil as a sun screen. Did not work. Ow. Now, I'm a coconut fried Irish-Indian...awesome (I can now empathize with all those fried coconut shrimp I've eaten over the years...I'm sorry delicious prawns).

Anyways! Here's my question: I've taken a Vit D supplement for several months now. But being in the sun? There's nothing like it! (No wonder Superman was a beast!) My allergies are starting to clear up, my skin is starting to clear up and my digestive issues seem somewhat tied to my sun exposure as well. I was having a little reflux, and as soon as I went into the sun (15-20 minutes maybe) they stopped. Placebo? Possibly. But the one day I missed, I had me some good ol' fashioned reflux. Thankfully, it wasn't anything too bad that's to MHGL's protocol.

My question is: Has anyone had stubborn maladies get progressively better after sun exposure?

I've been doing this for several days though, haha. Plus, despite my heritage, I've always had sun-sensitive skin. I was out walking around for a couple of hours. With the sandals, beard and hair combo I may have tried to bless a few people on my travels...and was smote for the joke.

Make sure it's grass-fed. No white man antibiotics or hormones.

I shall go to the farmer's market and hunt the buffalo-of-inflated-prices. This is my sacrifice.

My Nana took my to Hardees last week, cuz she knows I can eat a lettuce-wrapped burger. She asked if I wanted fries. I wrinkled my nose, no. She squinted her eyes at me and said, honest to God, said, "You've always hated the potatoes." Like it was a freakin' blight on the family!

I don't have any healing-sun specific anecdotes to share. But I will mention that my father used to work in the lab at the local health clinic here and aside from myself had only seen one other person whose D levels weren't deficient (the other guy supplemented). I spend a lot of my summers working in the field and I also supplement D the rest of the year. I think for me that spending a few days at the beach or in the field may not be entirely sufficient considering my recent ancestors lived in the same place and probably ran around half-naked for much of the year. I still burn too at the start of the season especially if I go from no sun to a day of yardwork without a shirt but as the season goes on it doesn't seem to be an issue. That may be the case with you as well in spite of any benefit the coconut oil might have.

Also here is a cool picture.

As a Scottish/Welsh/Indian, I sympathize. I burn, then get brownish-gold. Mineral Make-up protects my face. I wear sunscreen for the rest of my flesh, after 15 minutes of full-exposure. You can freakin' have it all! Rock on, my Indian-Celt brethren! Our super-power is freckles and gold skin! Dark hair, green eyes= magic stuff.

What's this about Superman and the sun? I'm pretty sure it was Birdman. :)

I personally still turn into a crisp critter after too much sun, but certainly do appreciate going outside and feeling the sun on my face, not a panacea, but it's a pick-me-up.

I only recently really started doing the whole spending more time in the sun thing and I am trying out the coconut oil thing. The last time I spent about 2 hours out after slathering myself in coconut oil, but I played around in a kiddie pool with my niece for a bit too. I burned a bit on the tops of my shoulders and back but not bad, doesn't hurt, just a little red. I was wearing a bikini, the rest of me seemed to fare well. I really, really hate being sunburned, so now you got me kinda worried. I will keep trying it but maybe monitor my skin more closely, though the burn doesn't usually show up until hours later sometimes. I am pretty much white (dutch/german) and 1/8th commanche, so maybe I'm not as sensitive to sun exposure? Were you in the sun for a very long time or just a short time when you tried the coconut oil?
