The Amazing Healing Power of Sunlight
Along with healthy lifestyle habits and the right diet, sunlight offers tremendous health benefits including protection against all types of diseases. In fact, exposure to ultraviolet light is one of the most impressive healing methods available. We are naturally attracted to being in the sun, because it's our body's' instinct to heal and cleanse through the power of sunlight. Our cells are bundles of sun energy since the glucose and oxygen are products of the sun.
Recent studies have revealed that exposing patients to controlled amounts of sunlight significantly lowered elevated blood pressure, decreases cholesterol in the bloodstream, stabilized blood sugar levels and increased white blood cells which are needed to resist infection and disease.
Being in sunlight is a great way to provide your body with sufficient Vitamin D which is essential for good health and a strong immune system. Sunlight is a vital nutrient which gives us energy and disinfects our skin from harmful germs.
The Ultraviolet rays are necessary for normal cell division and the lack of Ultraviolet light disturbs normal cell growth. The use of sunglasses and even contact lenses are co-responsible for certain degenerative eye diseases. By regularly blocking UV light, the eyes are unable to properly repair themselves and replace worn out eye cells. Furthermore, use of sunscreen lotions block out most Ultra Violet rays and the health benefits of sunlight.
To improve your health and to support the recovery from illnesses, spend some time outside daily preferably before 11:00 am or after 3:00 pm with as much skin exposed as possible.
Forget the sunscreen, sunglasses and the fear of sun exposure - embrace the healing power of the sun!
