"Light does not cure, but rather it aids the 'Vis Medicatrix Naturae' the body heals itself" - Milton
The sun is the powerhouse of planet earth. Without its beneficial rays life would not exist. 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 health-building effect on the skin and reproductive organs.
- 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 complement one another.
