"We are human photocells. Our ultimate biological nutrient is sunlight.
Nature's rhythmic 'light stimulation & bio-nutrients' are essential for manufacturing vitamin D and regulating circadian rhythms that control appetite, energy, mood, sleep, libido and other body mind functions."
Since the beginning of human history people have lived, worked and played outdoors during the light of day, active and vibrant, absorbing the full spectrum of light energy photons from the sky. An average of 10 hours each day, 70 hours weekly, was common for eons. But in less than a mere two hundred years, millions of people have unwittingly become "contemporary cave dwellers" living and working indoors. This dramatic reduction of natural light exposure, and its' domino-effect disturbance to vital 'light regulated' circadian rhythms, was coined "malillumination" by the late Dr. John Ott, the father of full-spectrum light.
Malillumination silently contributes to many adverse health and wellness issues; some quite serious. Fact is — humans are photobiotic ‘solar beings’ — all of us are absolutely dependent on the absorption of radiant, solar energy. Every metabolic process, every enzyme reaction, muscular movements, the digestion of food and the burning of fat are all biological processes (electro-chemical) that are augmented by sunlight energy. A reduction of 'natural light energy' causes a slowdown in these processes that leads to decreased metabolism, reduced burning of fat, reduced vitality and compromised immunity.
The human body functions much like a green plant, collecting energy from the atmosphere. The nervous system may be described as a network of electrical wires which conduct photons of light energy. Light energy is collected by the skin and eyes; converted into photocurrent and channeled throughout the entire nervous system. This photocurrent is then distributed to the internal organs and cells via the individual nerves. In addition to activating sight in the visual cortex, photocurrent also travels to the brain’s main control center, the hypothalamus. Informed by photocurrent, the hypothalamus then helps regulate brain chemistry, essential hormones and circadian rhythms that control appetite, energy, mood, sleep, libido and other essential bodymind functions.
Mankind's radical shift indoors, away from nature's source of the health regulating energy that our genes are programmed to respond to, leave us starving for 'life-supporting' solar energy. Don’t be in the dark about your health.
