Element IV - Sunlight
It is most unfortunate that sunlight is becoming the scape goat for the condition known as skin cancer. My childhood image of a benevolent old sol has been replaced by a ball of heat that is disease producing.
The sun is the powerhouse of planet earth - without its beneficial rays - life would not exist as we know. Cover the lawn with a cardboard box or a piece of plastic and it isn't long before life under the covering begins to die.
Light affects our entire organism
- The rays of the sun have a most salutory effect on the skin and reproductive organs.
- Check your attitude after a few days without the sun - it will probably be as bleak as the climate.
- Do not bathe in the intense rays of mid-day. Allow small amounts of exposure to the sun early in the morning and late in the afternoon. Begin with small periods of time and extend this gradually.
- When possible, combine the effects of the sun, earth and air - they compliment one another.
'Light does not cure, but rather it aids the Vis Medicatrix Naturae ‑ the body heals itself' - Milton
