Sunshine is not your enemy. What about for muscle growth? Did you know that gladiators would work out in the sun because they knew it helped grow stronger muscle? Well, now recent research has caught up to ancient warriors.
The January edition of Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise found an association between Vitamin D and significantly stronger muscles and it could not be explained away by other factors.
Feeling chronically fatigued? Maybe lack of sunshine is the answer.
Low levels of Vitamin D are to blame for some cases of chronic sleepiness, according to a pair of recent studies by researchers from Louisiana State University.
Hydration, Salt, Sunshine
Did you know hydration, salt and sunshine are the building blocks for calcium? Think about how coral calcium forms in the ocean (sunshine, water and salt). Recent studies of kids in many countries link Vitamin D intake to a whopping 50 percent reduction in cavities.
I recently had a client who had five one centimetre fibroid tumors in her uterus and doctors wanted to take it out. She came to my house in Bali and did a juice fast for five days then a 10 day water fast while getting out in the sun for two hours at least per day. The results? A great tan and all the fibroid tumors GONE!!
A new study published online in The Journal Biology of Reproduction has found that Vitamin D effectively reduces the size of existing uterine fibroids, and may even help prevent them from forming in the first place.
D3 Deficiencies and Depression
Recent studies link D3 deficiencies to depression and indicate the potential for preventing and treating mental disorders such as depression, seasonal affective disorder (SAD), anxiety, and schizophrenia.
Sunshine has been hailed for its unique ability to dramatically lower the risk of many forms of cancer, and has been shown to lower the risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke and dementia.
Recent studies of kids in many countries link Vitamin D intake to a whopping 50 percent reduction in cavities.
Sunshine it turns out, is necessary for the production of anti-microbial peptides, substances that fight off infection-causing bacteria, fungi, and viruses.
Swedish researchers from Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm show strong protection against another common health problem like urinary tract infections.
Sunshine for the Flu
Sunshine is a great replacement for toxic flu shots as well. University School of Medicine Minato-ku in Tokyo found that vitamin D was extremely effective at halting influenza infections in children and adults. The American Journal of Clinical
What if you live in a city with low or no sunshine?
Tanning beds are designed to synthesize the perfect conditions of a summer’s day. It is because of these ideal conditions that people can absorb all the UVs and produce all the vitamin D they need in such a short period of time.
Just remember too much of anything is a bad thing. If I lived in a city with little sunshine I would go three times a week. I would use a stand up bed and if it was a 15 minutes, max. I would go for eight after building a tan. This would get me ample amounts of the crucial Vitamin D that does all these amazing things including reducing the risk of skin cancer by some 50 percent!
Also, research has shown that drying mushrooms in the sun creates Vitamin D that can be consumed and assimilated by the liver.
Let’s all get out in the sun more often and use coconut oil instead of petroleum based (cancer causing) chemicals…
