For the first 6 months after we found out my D levels were "on the floor", under doctor's orders I went out every day, summer and winter, and spent 15 minutes naked on my back, and then my front, with no sunscreen, in my back courtyard. If my father in law was home, I wore my panties and bra. During Winter I wore Ugg boots and panties and bra, and the courtyard was sheltered enough, that I could bear the "nude" sunbathing around noon.
After 6 months, my D levels were still "only just off the floor, and still badly insufficient. If it doesn't improve to minimum levels, you will need a vitamin D perfusion straight into your bone". So next step was nude sunbathing WITH extra fish AND "Normal" but high vitamin D supplementation in a multivitamin supplement that my Neurologist recommended. (don't ask why my neurologist was monitoring my D levels). 6 months after that, my D level was improved but only by a miniscule amount. Thats when I was put on the pink pill: 25,000 IU of D3. 6 months later, my vit D was halfway to the normal minimum level. Since it was on a nice upward trend, I was sent away with more of the pink pills, to continue WITH nude sunbathing, WITH extra fish, and WITH the recommended multivitamin for reaction catalysers.
