In the recent Ode Magazine, there was an article on the healing qualities of sunlight. The writer reported how critics of natural sunlight claim that the sun is dangerous and harmful to our health. I strongly disagree. Since we are made of light does this mean we have become alienated from ourselves? Fortunately, there has been a great deal of research reporting the benefits of light. I have been treating patients with light therapy for twenty-five years and the results speak for themselves. Light is a food and when we invite the colors into our eyes, the light helps balance our endocrine system, our nervous system and it opens up our peripheral vision. The more open our peripheral vision, the present we are. On a biochemical level, natural full spectrum light helps convert Vitamin D into cholesterol in the skin. Vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium in the bones and boosts the immune system. Natural sunlight also can affect our moods and neutralize SAD (seasonal affective disorder). I have used light and color therapy to help reverse certain types of eye diseases like macular degeneration and glaucoma. I have also been successful applying light/color therapy to children diagnosed in the Autism Spectrum Disorder Syndrome.
Thanks to Dr. Konstantin Korotkov, a brilliant and innovative biophysicist from St. Petersburg, Russia, I am using his Electrophotonic Imaging Camera to measure the affects of light/color therapy on the energy fields and chakras.
Exposure to fifteen minutes of natural sunlight everyday is a great preventative measure for wellness! A safe practice is looking at the sun with your eyes closed before 10 AM and after 4 PM. Happy fall!!
