Is Sunlight The Best Medicine?
Given the recent results from Vitamin D research, could it be so that sunlight is the best medicine there is?
What if a “WONDER-DRUG” existed, that would: ! Reduce the risk of getting more than 60 different kinds of diseases among them:
- Most kind of cancers (inclusive skin-cancers)
- Heart Disease
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
- Type 1 Diabetes
- Tuberculosis (TB)
- Rickets (low bone-density)
! Be available free during at least 6 months and through safe technology the rest of the year
! Have serious side effects only if:
- Overdosing or not following the recommendations “on the package”.
- Taken by individuals with skin-type I or with a large amount (>100) of “liver-spots” on their body.
This “miracle-drug” would also:
- Make calcification, hardening and stiffening of your blood vessels disappear.
- Make your immune system work at optimal efficiency, enough to fight off infections like the common cold and seasonal flu-epidemics.
- Strengthen your teeth
- Raise your mood
- Strengthen your muscles
- Improve your metabolism
- Enhance your sex-life
- Make you loose weight
WOULDN’T EVERYONE WANT TO TAKE SUCH MEDICINE? THE FACT IS THAT THIS “DRUG” EXISTS. IT IS CALLED UVB AND YOU CAN GET IT FROM THE SUN AND FROM LAMPS IN A SOLARIUM.
UVB RAYS ON NAKED SKIN IS BY FAR THE BEST AND SAFEST WAY FOR THE BODY TO CREATE VITAMIN-D, THE HORMONE PROVED TO HAVE THE ABILITY TO SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE THE RISK FOR, AND EVEN REMEDY, MOST HUMAN DISEASES.
Still more than 80% of the world’s population living above the latitude of 40 degree is Vitamin-D deficient most of the year.
Because: The discovery of penicillin and other chemically manufactured drugs plus the fanatic fear-driven propaganda against sunlight with the purpose of selling chemical sunscreen lotions, have made us forget the wisdom and knowledge collected by our ancestors since the beginning of humankind, namely that the sun is necessary for all life on Earth, and that Man is no exclusion.
In 1903, just a little bit more than 100 years ago, the Nobel-prize for Medicine was awarded to the Danish doctor Niels Finsen for his work with treating tuberculosis with UV-light. Even until the fifties, sunlight was considered as an important medical cure and hospitals were constructed with this in the mind of the architects.
However, sunshine is free and when confronted with huge commercial interests, the voices of its few defenders were easily silenced by the manipulating marketing loudspeakers from large, multinational, chemical drug- and sunscreen- companies. The “re-discovery” of the ancient knowledge of UV-light‘s healing power is although gaining more and more momentum, again supported by scientifically obtained proof.
What makes UV-exposure the target of intensive witch-hunt by the established cancer-industry? It is simply because regular and moderate exposure to UV-light is their biggest competitor.
Unfortunately, politicians in many countries are still leaning on the dubious results from narrow researches of which some could be considered to be scientific fraud (since they are omitting contradictory facts) when they are making legislations that are very counter-productive towards common health. Such legislation and regulations are costing taxpayers billions of dollars in the, often unsuccessful, caring of diseases that could be cured simply by restoring the usage of UV-light where it belongs in medical health-care, either provided free from the sun or from inexpensive and easily available technology (sunbeds).
The ignorance (or, even worse, commercial interests) that are “keeping us in the dark” will of course be defeated by common sense supported by proof from recent real scientific medical research. Research that is “sponsored” by the genuine understanding and feeling among the “grassroots” about the need for sunlight for life on Earth. The question is how much more suffering we have to withstand before the ignorance among legislators will be shattered.
Is sunlight the best medicine “only” because of that it gives us vitamin D in the way Mother Nature intended it? No, probably not. The Nitric Oxide we get from UVA is only one example of probably many more benefits we can get from sun-exposure.
You can join this grass-root-movement in many ways. One is to leave your comments (support or objections) to this post. Another is to inform yourself better not by trusting twisted media reports from flawed research, but by your own investigations and by spreading your findings.
