Sunlight provides the human body with the essential ingredients for optimal health April 07 2015
In March, an important article from Dr. Mercola and Dr Wunsch was published on the essential benefits of sunlight to overall wellness.
However, they are still unaware of the SunFriend, a new tool you wear to manage the right amount of sun. SunFriend tracks exactly how much sunlight you are exposed to in terms of UVA and UVB. SunFriend® is officially approved by the Vitamin D Council as an effective tool for optimizing healthy sun exposure. When you wear a SunFriend sun tracker, you can more accurately determine how much sun is enough for maximum benefit before you do any skin damage. It's perfect for all all ages and does not require a smart phone to operate.
Here are some highlights from the article;
By now you’re probably aware of the importance of vitamin D. Ideally, it’s best to get it from the sun, because sunlight provides a number of other benefits as well, over and beyond vitamin D synthesis, that you simply cannot get from food or a supplement.
Alexander Wunsch is a German physician of holistic medicine and photobiology. He’s also the CEO of Medical Light Consulting in Heidelberg, Germany. He believes, like I do, that the sun is a great healer.
He believes that it’s the unity of biophysics and biochemistry that allows for life, and provides the human body with the essential ingredients for optimal health.
“We need the stimulus at a certain dosage to keep our system running,”
“We need the stimulus at a certain dosage to keep our system running,”he says. “Sunlight exposure is definitely much more than tanning. Tanning is just what you see, what is visible on your skin...
This is one very important part: if your skin is exposed to sunlight, you will experience some invisible changes in your circulatory system. The capillaries, for example, will be modified under the influence of sunlight.
The skin is closely linked to the autonomic nervous system (ANS). It’s a kind of an external organ of the vegetative system in your body. For example, when you live under summer conditions, we need much more water in our system in order to produce enough sweat, in order to cool down our body.
This means that sunlight not only influences the skin, but it influences all the inner organs as well. It’s a kind of concert, which is started by the stimulus of sunlight.”
