SUNBURN

As its name suggests, sunburn is a condition characterized the skin becoming red, painful and hot to the touch as a result of being burned by the sun. Sunburn typically appears within a few hours after exposure to the sun and may last from several days to several weeks.

Over exposure to the sun, which results in numerous cases of sunburn increases risk of certain complications and related skin diseases including dry, wrinkled skin, liver spots, actinic keratoses and skin cancer.

Signs and symptoms of sunburn which usually begin to appear within 4-6 hours after the sun exposure include:

- Pinkness or redness

- Skin that feels warm or hot to the touch

- Pain or tenderness

- Swelling

- Small fluid-filled blisters, which may break

- Headache, fever and fatigue if sunburn covers a large area

The sun can burn any part of the body. Even the eyes, which are extremely sensitive to the sun's ultraviolet light, can burn. A painful or gritty feeling is common in eyes that have been sunburned.

Sunburn pain usually peaks six hours to 48 hours after exposure to ultraviolet light. After a few days, the body's natural healing process begins to take place, which is characterized by the top layer of skin "peeling". Once the peeling process has finished, a temporary, irregular color and pattern on the skin may appear. It may take several days or up to three weeks for the sunburn to heal, depending on the severity.

Sunburns are caused by exposure to too much ultraviolet (UV) light. UV radiation is a wavelength of sunlight in a range too short to be seen by the human eye. UV light is divided into three wavelength bands which are known as ultraviolet A (UVA), ultraviolet B (UVB) and ultraviolet C (UVC) but UVC rays never actually reach the earth.

During exposure to UV light, the skin protects the deeper layers of skin by producing extra melanin, the dark pigment in the epidermis that gives the skin its normal color. The result is what we call a "tan". A suntan is actually the body's defense mechanism against sunburn and other damage to the skin. This protection however, has its limits as the amount of melanin produced in one's body is determined by one's genetics. Once the production of melanin stops, the burning begins. Some people don't produce as much melanin as others which is why some people burn easily and some do not.

The following regimen includes a safe, holistic approach to treating & preventing sunburn:

Soak for 30 minutes or more in an herbal bath containing six cups of chamomile tea or lavender oil added to lukewarm water. This will reduce the stinging and pain. You can also apply a salve containing calendula flowers and St. John's wort to bad burns as these herbs hold antiseptic properties that promote healing.

Many times people think that because the sun causes sunburn, they should avoid the sun altogether. This should not be the case. The sun itself is not the cause of sunburn, over exposure to UV light is. In fact, natural sunlight is one of the best ways to naturally stimulate the production of vitamin D in the body.

Moderation is key. You know your skin better than anyone else. If you burn easily, your time in the sun should be limited. If that's not an option for any reason, wear protective clothing. But whatever you do, do not wear sunscreen or sun block. Studies have shown chemicals in these products to be cancer causing themselves and the only reason why they continue to remain on the market is for the same reason prescription drugs do: because they generate profits.

If you still choose to wear sunscreen use a natural, non-toxic form of sunblock that's free of toxic chemicals such as Octyl methoxycinnamate (OMC), which is present in most commercial brands. I've found two brands that are made of natural ingredients and free of petrochemicals: “Natural Sun” by Aubrey Organics and “Caribbean Blue” by Natmed Limited.

The following supplements may also be beneficial:

Aloe Vera Gel - Very effective in treating any kind of burn. Gently apply a thin layer of the gel to the affected area and repeat every hour until the pain subsides.

Coenzyme Q10 (60 mg daily) - Increases the oxygen supply to the cells. I recommend the brand “Q-absorb” by Jarrow Formulas.

Colloidal Silver (apply topically as directed on label) - Prevents infection and promotes healing.

Dimethylglycine (DMG) (take as directed on label) - Increases tissue oxygenation.

Silica or horsetail (take as directed on label) - Provides silicon which is needed for tissue repair.

L-Cysteine (500 mg daily on empty stomach. Take with water or juice & never with milk) - Promotes healing of burns.

High-Potency Multivitamin and Mineral Supplement (take as directed on label) - Supplies all necessary nutrients.

Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids (10,000 mg & up in divided doses) - Needed for tissue repair and healing.

Primrose Oil - Needed for tissue healing.
