Tim Ioannides is a licensed dermatologist who has been practicing for over 15 years. He founded the company Treasure Coast Dermatology, which is a company that is more focused on taking steps to be proactive rather than just being reactive. Ioannides mainly focuses on medical issues dealing with skin conditions and does not tend to focus very much on cosmetic issues. Tim Ioannides received his medical degree from Miami University School of Medicine and is a certified member of the American Board of Dermatology.
Ioannides believes that vitamin D is a vitamin which possibly can offer help with skin conditions, such as rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, or contact dermatitis. Vitamin D is a vitamin which can be obtained through food as well as from exposure to sunlight. Some of the common reasons people have vitamin D deficiencies include not enough exposure to sunlight, being overweight, not getting enough vitamin D through food, having digestion issues, using sunscreen often, or being of older age. Some of the most common signs of low exposure to vitamin D include back pain, loss of hair, wounds not healing as fast as they should, constant sickness, staying tired all the time, and being depressed. Ioannides recommends everyone in general should try to get about 10 to 15 minutes of exposure to sunlight every day.
Ioannides suggests that any patients who have skin conditions take 10,000 IU of vitamin D3 per day, which is a bit more than what is typically recommended. Just this dose of vitamin D has helped some of Ioannides’ patients skin conditions clear up. Some of the patients that had the skin conditions eczema and intractable psoriasis had a complete end to skin problems just by supplementing vitamin D. Vitamin D is readily available, inexpensive, and is a highly safe supplement.
