Heal your body with sunshine: Magical sun rays

The sun heals. I know that is hard to believe but yes sun therapy is an actual thing.

Our intention is to provide basic information on the human body to hopefully inspire you to be more intentional about your health. Sun therapy typically involves artificial lighting in order to help improve SAD and depression. Sun therapy is known for having a positive impact on melatonin and Serotonin to help with mood, stress and overall wellbeing. Not only can sunshine help ease your body but can be use to remedy period cramps. There are so many  benefits to sunshine but we will be covering emotional wellbeing first.

Since Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) comes during winter time, any sun and  vitamin D is essential. Low levels of light can result in increased melatonin production which makes it effective in aiding people who suffer from SAD. Sunlight also positively affects mood-regulating brain chemical activity such as serotonin.The goal to a bearable menstrual cycle is to make sure your body has the necessary nutrients to sustain and replenish itself. Vitamin deficiency is the leading cause of all or most menstrual symptoms. Therefore Vitamin D, a fat-soluble vitamin, can ease period pains by decreasing inflammation.

Inflammation is responsible for pain in our bodies especially during a menstrual cycle. You can take Vitamins, but there are other, faster natural effective ways. Sun therapy.Your body can naturally produce vitamin D with enough safe sun exposure. The sun is in abundance and works relatively faster than taking a capsule, both are equally important but some days you may not have access to pills. In those cases, step outside, not only for the fresh air but for the healing power of the sun.

Not only does the sun provide Vitamin D but it also acts as a natural heater   to warm up the uterus. The heat radiating from the sun can relax those sore muscles and help improve blood flow.

Getting outside is not only good for your mental wellbeing but could prove  beneficial in reducing inflammation in your body. 

Remember to wear sunscreen to protect yourself from sun over-exposure. You can pair a sunscreen with a rosehip oil which has natural sun protective properties. 

Although sun therapy is useful please do not use sun therapy alone to heal, consult with your doctor or healthcare provider for more options.
