The Sun is the Orchestra Leader for the Dance of Life
Its Saturday again and our 40th day hibernating, Its time for some sunshine. Dan and I take vitamin D supplements, although its much better for the original sunshine. However, we woke up to a gloomy day. Going to take advantage of the window of time that the sun is out.
Most people are deficient of vitamin D, when having our blood work done, we always ask for this test to be done. Its one component to a healthy life. “More than three fourths of all Americans are vitamin D-deficient.”
Light is the basic component from which all life originates, evolves, and is energized. Light and health are inseparable.
Ken Ceder, former co-director Hippocrates Health Institute, Boston, Massachusetts.
Sunlight is more powerful than any drug; it is safe, effective, and available free of charge.
If it could be patented, it would be hyped as the greatest medical breakthrough in history.
It's that good. ~ Mike Adams, natural health researcher and author.
Natural sunlight's benefits are not limited to vitamin D production.
As light enters the eyes, photoreceptors convert the light into nerve impulses that travel along the optic nerve to the brain.
These impulses trigger the hypothalamus gland to send neurotransmitters to regulate the automatic functions of the body, such as blood pressure, body temperature, respiration, digestion, sexual function, moods, immune and hormonal modulation, and circadian rhythm. ~ John Maher, DC, DCCN, FAAIM.
Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows- Lesley Gore- Lyrics
Since, I blogged about singing yesterday, I thought this would be proper; an oldy but goody.
It is not just plants that absorb and metabolize sunlight. Human beings do it too. However, the relationship between sun exposure and health in humans isn’t as straightforward as we might want it to be. Genes are a factor of how humans metabolize sunlight; as is skin type. For instance, people with pale skin that burns easily in the sun are likely to get skin cancer if exposed to too much sun. The timing and duration of exposure is also a crucial factor when it comes to how our bodies metabolize sunlight.
Here are ten huge health benefits of moderate sun exposure you absolutely should know about.
Sun exposure lowers blood pressure.
Sun exposure improves bone health.
Sun exposure improves brain function.
Sun exposure eases mild depression.
Sun exposure improves sleep quality.

🌻 When Sunshine's it not brightens our day; it enlightens us, our soul, cleansing it of the gloominess that the night darkness had brought in. Go out and smell the 🌹 roses.
So, go out this weekend, if the sun is out for, experts recommend no more than 15 to 20 minutes of direct sunlight daily for a healthy adult.
