It might sound strange, but taking higher doses of vitamin D or sitting in the sun may not always be the best way to boost your vitamin D levels. For some people losing weight might do the trick.
Written by Capt. Randall
The most important medicine is invisible, mostly free and usually overlooked. Natural therapies can help keep your body healthy on a cellular level.
Researchers from the University of Maryland’s School of Medicine have determined that just one hour of bright light therapy significantly reduces depression and depressed moods.
Sunshine isn't toxic, nor is it just about getting a tan. And it's also not just about vitamin D. Among other benefits, research finds sunshine also decreases a child's risk of asthma when mom gets enough of it.
Several recent studies have confirmed that premenstrual syndrome symptoms can be significantly reduced by including certain nutrient-dense foods in the diet.
Multiple studies have now confirmed that vitamin D deficiency increases the risk of obesity. Stock up on vitamin D with some fun in the sun this summer.

While ubiquitous in nature, melanin, which provides the coloring found in hair, skin, eyes, feathers, scales, etc., is an especially important substance as far as the human condition is concerned. After all, melanin's role in determining skin color makes it the primary physiological basis for racial differentiation among humans.
Written by Paul Stamets
This cool tweak will increase the power of mushrooms to maintain and improve your health!

A groundbreaking new study has revealed that a deficiency of sunlight could be as harmful to your health as smoking cigarettes.
Confused about what to put on your skin to protect it from the sun? Is a tanning bed a safer way of maintaining that "healthy glow"? How much sun is good for us? How much sun is bad? Is it better to get natural sunlight or controlled exposure through a tanning bed?
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
Some of the most powerful medicines on the planet are masquerading around as foods and spices. While they do not lend themselves to being patented, nor will multi-billion dollar human clinical trials ever be funded to prove them efficacious, they have been used since time immemorial to both nourish our bodies, and to prevent and treat disease.
Written by Dr. Michael Murray
Avoiding sun exposure may cause an increase in vitamin D deficiency so dangerous that it is comparable to smoking.
Written by Heidi Stevenson
Alzheimer’s is largely a disease of the modern world & a big part of the problem is the atrocious advice given by doctors. Their decades-long battle to keep us out of the sun is one of the epidemic’s causes.
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
While ubiquitous in nature, melanin, which provides the coloring found in hair, skin, eyes, feathers, scales, etc., is an especially important substance as far as the human condition is concerned. Melanin’s role in determining skin color makes it the primary physiological basis for racial differentiation among humans; in fact, entire civilizations have arisen and fallen due to perceptions and misperceptions concerning its nature and signification.
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
For the same reason that the conventional energy industry has not harnessed the full potential of solar energy (its free!), sunlight and its indispensable byproduct in our skin: vitamin D, represents a serious threat to the conventional medical establishment whose questionable and aggressive promotion of vaccination and drug-based strategies in place of inexpensive, safe and effective vitamin D supplementation for immunity has many questioning their motives.
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
Sunlight is recognized for its vitamin D producing properties, but it has far more to offer than that. Did you know that it kills pain, modulates our lifespan, and may even convert directly into metabolic energy?
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
A new study finds vitamin D -- the 'sunlight vitamin' -- strikes to the very heart of breast cancer malignancy.
We already knew sunshine and vitamin D were important to health - given the over 70 diseases now associated with their deficiency. Now research is proving their role in food allergies.
