(NaturalNews) Regular sun exposure is one of the most basic human genetic requirements. Sunlight provides biophotons in the form of ultraviolet (UV) radiation. These biophotons help to energize our cells and stimulate vitamin D3 production. Biophoton absorption and rhythmic expression in our bodies enhances immunity and helps us prevent chronic disease.
Light is the most basic component of life itself. Light is a measurement of health, and the more light one has flowing symmetrically through their body, the better their expression of health will be. Humans are considered photobiotic beings in that we depend upon light stimulation and distribute light energy through our body in order to produce living energy.
Science has confirmed that the body acts much like a green plant, collecting energy photons from the sun. A full spectrum of biophotons entering the body through the eyes and skin regulates brain chemistry and immune expression. Inside of our body, this light stimulation helps coordinate communication processes in all 75 trillion cells. It also stimulates vitamin D3 production which is a powerful regulator of bodily functions.
Biophotons and your body:
The human body emits biophotons in the form of ultra-weak photon emissions (UPE) with a visibility 1,000 times lower than the sensitivity of our naked eyes. These particles of light are part of the electromagnetic spectrum (380-780nm) that is detectable with sophisticated instrumentation.
Every cell emits more than 100,000 light pulses or photons per second. Our cells use these biophotons to communicate information throughout the body. They are the steering mechanisms behind all biochemical reactions. These biophotons can be viewed as the letters that make up the language of light and life.
Understanding how to speak the language of light energy enhances our insight into life and health. Our ability to identify biophotonic imbalances helps us get rid of all kinds of symptoms of disorder.
Mal-illumination is a key factor in chronic disease:
Insufficient biophotonic absorption from the sun and living foods leads to disturbances in our vital circadian rhythms. These circadian rhythms regulate appetite, immunity, energy, mood, sleep, libido and digestion. A lifestyle that is low in biophotons leads us to a condition labeled “mal-illumination.” Dr. John Ott, the renowned photobiologist and father of full-spectrum lighting gave mal-illumination its name and considered it one of the greatest detriments to human health.
Millions of people throughout North America are suffering from mal-illumination due to low sun exposure; lack of raw fruits, vegetables and herbs; and improper indoor lighting.
Much like malnutrition, mal-illumination deprives an individual of the level of biophotonic nutrients and rhythmic stimulation that are essential for all life processes. Getting beneficial light therapy from regular sun exposure, a diet rich in raw, living foods, and full-spectrum lighting is critical for optimal health.
Sunlight and vitamin D production:
The sun provides our body with an essential stress through its UV radiation. This UV radiation stress signals a molecule on the skin (7-dehydrocholesterol) to convert to the active form of vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) in the body. Vitamin D3 synthesis depends upon UVB radiation, which effectively penetrates only the epidermal (outer) layers of the skin.
Vitamin D deficiency is a current epidemic in our society today, affecting 90% of our world’s population. According to vitamin D expert Michael Holick, “We estimate that vitamin D deficiency is the most common medical condition in the world.” It is clear that most people are not getting enough healthy sun exposure. Vitamin D deficiency is linked to increased risk of virtually every form of cancer, including skin cancer, as well as cardiovascular disease and immune insufficiencies.
Vitamin D is an immune modulator
Vitamin D is an important immune system modulator in that it helps coordinate accurate immune activity. This is especially important, as it is necessary in order for the body to produce the appropriate immune response to kill off infection and abnormal cell development without causing inflammation and damaging its own tissue. This reduces stress on the body and conserves energy for tissue healing and the promotion of anti-aging characteristics.
Most chronic diseases in modern America are related to poor immune coordination. Chronic infections and cancer are often related to weak immune output, whereas auto-immune and chronic inflammatory conditions are related to excessive immune output. Vitamin D3 is a critical player in maintaining optimal immune expression.
