Explaining how and why we should get sunlight back into our lives - safely - this book shows how sunlight was used to prevent and cure diseases in the past, and how it can heal and help us in the future. Over the last 40 years, there has been a complete reversal in medical thinking on sunlight. Sunbathing is regarded by the experts to be a dangerous pastime which should be actively discouraged, yet little more than 50 years ago doctors in Europe and North America were using sunlight to treat potentially fatal diseases on a routine basis, and a number of hospitals were built specifically for sunlight treatment. The human race evolved under the sun and for thousands of years lived in close harmony with its heat and light. Many of us have lost this close contact with the sun and its healing powers.

Table of Contents

Healing with the sun; too much sun - or too little?; the right amount of sun; how to sunbathe safely; sunlight, diet and lifestyle; indoors, outdoors.

This book is a MAJOR eye opener. After all of the "doctor's orders" over the past decade to stay out of the sun because of skin cancer, this book gives you a 180 degree different perspective and led me on a quest to learn more about the benefits of Vitamin D -and the lack of it- on our health. If you are struggling with ANY form of chronic health problems, you may just be surprised that following the guidelines in this book just may seriously improve your health!! Having been a Registered Nurse for over 14 years, a lot of the information in this book goes against EVERYTHING that I had been taught. But in a nation of increasing antibiotic resistant infections, we just may be forced to return to whatever works for good health- and it's contained in this book. Learn these principles now and when antibiotics are useless, you'll have free medicine in your toolkit that you can use anytime. - Kerri Knox, RN
