HELIOTHERAPY

The Benefits of Light

Although heliotherapy traditionally refers to treatments that use natural sunlight, the term is also applied to artificial sources of ultraviolet, visible or infrared light radiation.

HEALTH BENEFITS

Health benefits from Sunlight and Ultra-Violet Light

Stress Relief - Exposure to sunlight is known to reduce the levels of adrenaline and non-adrenaline released in the body, reducing overall stress level.

Alleviate Skin Disease – Ultra-violet light has been used for years in the medical community to treat skin disorders such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema.

Cancer prevention – One study showed that colon and breast cancer rates are three times higher in northern states like Vermont and New Hampshire than sunny states.

Seasonal Affective Disorder – In a 1993 study, 70% of patients with SAD showed improvement after light therapy, the only known cure for the “winter blues.”

PMS - Exposure to bright light helps neutralize women’s menstrual cycles.

Heart Rate – UV light creates many of the same results as exercise – decreased blood pressure, lower resting heart rate, increased metabolism, and a 39% increase in the output of blood – lowering your risk of heart disease.

OVERALL WELL-BEING

Health benefits from Sunlight and Ultra-Violet Light

Research from the Harvard Medical School determined that exposure to UVA light can result in a significant rise in endorphin levels. Endorphins are natural opiates produced in the brain that are characterized by a feeling of well-being and a rush of energy. The pineal gland, located in the center of the brain, coordinates most of our life-sustaining functions based on the light information it receives. These light cues affect growth and development, body temperature, blood cell count, fertility and the immune system.

Daily exposure to light also resets the circadian system, and the body’s internal clock. This system is responsible for moods, appetite, energy levels, behavior, sexual desire, and productivity. This would also explain why doses of sunlight can lessen the effects of “jet lag!”

TANNING AND HEALTH

Vitamin D is an 'inexpensive solution' to heart drugs find scientists as they reveal the sunshine supplement can repair and prevent the damage caused by diabetes and high blood pressure

  • Stimulates the production of nitric acid, which helps to regulate blood flow

  • Also prevents blood clots and lowers 'internal stress' in the cardio-system

  • Vitamin D may be able to repair damaged cells elsewhere, such as in the brain

  • Heart disease is defined as any disorder affecting the organ or blood vessels

  • Is the leading cause of death in adults in the US; resulting in one in four fatalities
