"Mal-illumination is to light as malnutrition is to food."
Come into rhythm
Gentle, morning light is especially important for regulating 'light sensitive' hormones and neurotransmitters, such as; melatonin, serotonin, insulin, cortisol and dopamine. The newness of morning light also synchronizes one’s (daily) circadian rhythms that control appetite, energy, mood, sleep, libido and other bodymind functions. Miraculously, the sun is also the natural source of vitamin D.
Unknowingly, millions suffer from chronic Mal-illumination. Fortunately, medical science is now discovering that humans need a 'full-spectrum' of light frequencies for physical, emotional and mental health.
To escape the ravages of mal-illumination all we need is moderate, daily, sunlight exposure.
Mal-illumination... the silent epidemic
Mal-illumination contributes to many serious health conditions that include obesity, depression, fatigue, sleep disorders as well as breast, prostate and colon cancer.
The late Dr. John Ott, renowned photobiologist and father of full-spectrum light technology, coined the term, mal-illumination, to describe the current 'sunlight deprivation & vitamin D starvation' epidemic. Like malnutrition, mal-illumination causes deficiencies by depriving us of vital energetic nutrients (e.g. UV light/vitamin D). When we suffer from mal-illumination we also lack the rhythmic stimulation that is essential for humans to live in unison with nature's daily rhythms.
When we're out of synchronization with the rhythms of nature we experience dis-ease in all of its manifest forms.
Humans are photobiotic! We're human photocells whose ultimate biological nutrient is sunlight. All humans are absolutely dependent on the absorption of the sun’s vital energy. In fact, the full spectrum of sunlight energy is essential for the development, growth, and maintenance of not only a healthy body, but critical for a healthy mind as well. Now more than ever in this Age of Information, millions of people have become “contemporary cave-dwellers” living and working indoors, unwittingly starving for the sun's life energy!
