Sunlit from Heaven
“When pain brings you down, don’t be silly, don’t close your eyes and cry, you just might be in the best position to see the sun shine.”
― Alanis Morissette
The Sun is healing.
It’s good for you. It makes you feel good.
Sunlight is nature’s energy, it’s a mood enhancer and our skin absorbs essential Vitamin D from it.
According to statistics 3 out of 4 people are Vitamin D deficient.
By spending 20 mins in the sun each day, you can restore your Vitamin D levels.
*Do not cover your arms or legs with clothing or sunscreen, as both prevent synthesis of vitamin D from the sun.
The skin is the largest organ in our body,
our major source of vitamin D comes from absorbing sunlight through our skin.
The Vit. D we absorb from the sun regulates our immune system, promotes bone growth, so makes our bodies strong and plays major roles in the life cycle of human cells. It has many other essential functions.
Sunblock may just be the major culprit in the world-wide Vitamin D deficiency.
The sun is not dangerous if you’re responsible.
Would you slather sunblock all over your other organs, like your liver or kidneys..or would you protect them?
Allow the sun on your skin first, then cover up areas that could get burnt – a hat, a light overshirt, sunglasses, a sarong etc.. or move into the shade if you’re outside for the rest of the day.
Use sunblock only if necessary and only on areas that need it.
Low Vitamin D
Low vitamin D levels increase risk of several diseases such as hypertension, heart failure, stroke, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes and prostate, colon and breast cancers. In contrast, high vitamin D levels reduce risk of arthritis, increase lung function and boost the immune system.
Simply walking, working or reading in the sun for 5 to 10 minutes every day allows your body to make sufficient amounts of vitamin D.
Set up an area and get into the light daily – relax, restore and enjoy!
