You may be vitamin D Deficient and not even know it! Check out this article I found on Dr. Ben Kim’ s website called “The Miracle of Vitamin D” written by Krispin Sullivan. She mentions sunlamps by Sperti Tanning Systems for those who can’t get enough vitamin D from the sun because of latitude or season. Unlike tanning salon beds, she say’s they “can be used to provide a natural balance of UV-B and UV-A.” I guess it would be a good idea to get tested for my vitamin D status. For a while I had a dark ring around my neck, and had no idea why. I found out through research that I may have a thyroid problem. Then I came across an article called The Thyroid/ Fibromyalgia Connection. This can also be related to PCOS. Scrubbing your neck is not the answer, it won’t go away. The solution to all of these symptoms I believe is Vitamin D therapy, along with Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics 12 Plus. I would take this over Dr. Ben Kim’s greens because he writes on his site : “I first used Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotic formula in the care of someone who had a severe case of ulcerative colitis. This particular person had severe inflammation of her intestines, so was unable to tolerate significant amounts of raw vegetables (this is why I didn’t use our green food formula in her care). I was so impressed by the effectiveness of Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotic formula in this case that I used it in the care of several other people who required intensive probiotic intake. Over time, I found Dr. Ohhira’s formula to be effective for addressing constipation, yeast overgrowth issues, severe acne, food poisoning, hay fever, nasal congestion, and asthma.” Thyroid problems most likely link to clogged intestines, and so I think that people with this problem should buy this instead of his greens formula, until they recover.
