    I use Red Sperti.
    One turn of timer is 16 min.
    I do that every day from very close distance, sometimes touching lamp.
    8min back then front.
    Center of lamp is at the height of my navel.

    It is good idea to check vit D levels after at least three months of such exposure.
    For me, in winter time that may not be enough.

    @JanSz I would imagine that your navel area gets quite tanned and your legs are pale. Is that true?

    Not really, I also use natural sunlight.

  5. I do 20 minutes per session. The Dminder app has a Sperti option. It’s for the Vit D lamp but I think @JanSz and I have established that the Red provides just as much UVB as the Vit D - along with some UVA. The Dminder, given my skin type and exposure (naked), says I’m getting 2000 IU.

    I do one session on most days. I rotate 90 degrees every 5 minutes. Each session I do a new level:
    1. Head/Chest
    2. Torso
    3. Upper Legs/Balls!
    4. Lower Legs/Feet

    I was able to maintain vitamin D level at 53 ng/mL last winter - that’s down from 60 ng/mL going into the winter. I’m okay with that - it’s unsupplemented, I felt good, and my vitiligo continues to repigment. The tests are cheap so I recommend just doing tests to figure out what works for you.

    I also have rigged up 4 NIR-A flood lights for simultaneous red/IR treatment. I open the window to keep the room cold during treatments.

    Both screen captures are at the surface of Red Sperti.

    Isn't the idea to irradiate the blood and have the RBCs carry the light to where it needs to go?

    Think about were the Quantlet does it's thing . . . where the blood comes close to the surface . . . .
