as the Fall Equinox is upon us

 

Those of us traveling to be in the sunshine for the Winter or those who’s Summer is upon them,

Nadine Artemis has VERY interesting information in this 6 min. video about excess or lack of sun exposure.

Also, this:

We have known since the early 80’s that ultraviolet light activates the production of beta endorphin by the skin. We also know that ultraviolet stimulates the skin to produce nitric oxide, the most critical chemical for immune strength, cardiovascular health and energy! This endorphin production is so good that it provides significant pain relief for patients with fibromyalgia. All this is in addition to production of vitamin D 3, another overall health essential. Actually, the skin produces all the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis homeostatic hormones—corticotrophin releasing hormone, proopiomelanocortin, ACTH, & beta-endorphin, (Am J Physiol Endocrinol Metab, 2011, 301: E484-493)
