Sunlight and Life Consistency

Sunlight is vitally important in the nutritive processes of both plant and animal life. Take away sunlight and all life upon earth would perish. In the tropics, where the sunlight is most abundant, life exists in greatest profusion. In those portions of the earth where nights are longest and days are shortest, and where long winters prevail, life is either absent altogether or it consists of poorly developed forms. One can increase energy in the body and live to an age of hundred. From the sunrays one gets vital life energy or Praann and also heat both of which make the body healthy and long lived. The sunrays are also instrumental in producing the ozone gas, which protects the earth from harmful ultraviolet rays. Ozone increases the body power and makes the blood pure. It also makes the heart strong and the bones powerful.

Sunshine stimulates the growth of hair. Under its influence, breathing becomes deeper and slower; sleep sounder, blood pressure is diminished, and urinary excretion is increased. Ulcers, sores, skin diseases, etc.; heal more rapidly under its influence. Such bathing rejuvenates the skin itself. Sunshine aids in building good teeth. It undoubtedly aids in preserving the normal alkalinity of the blood and should prove an effective aid in restoring normal alkalinity. The germicidal power of sunlight is well known. It is the greatest of all disinfectants and antiseptics.

Use of Sunlight at the Cellular Level of Body

Sunlight greatly increases the body’s consumption of oxygen. Through added numbers of red cells and increase in their hemoglobin, the oxygen carrying power of the blood is increased. A few minutes of exposure daily to the sunlight will double the quantity of phosphorus in a baby’s blood in a fortnight. The circulation of the blood itself is improved while blood pressure is lessened. The power of the blood to build and repair tissue is increased, and its coagulating power greatly improved. Sunbaths are indispensable to hemophiliacs or “bleeders. It is also clearly mentioned in Vedas as the only treatment for physiological neonatal jaundice.

Sunlight in Mother and Childcare

The subjection of a pregnant woman to daily sunbaths will benefit both her and the developing fetus. Sufficient sunshine during pregnancy produces better general health in the mother and better development in the child. Nursing mothers, also need sunlight to maintain the purity of their system. The unborn child is supplied with food, water and oxygen from the mother’s blood. Sunlight aids in skeletal development of babies before birth and aids in the production of milk after birth. Sunbaths before and after childbirth increase the mother’s ability to nurse her baby and improve the quality of the milk, while they tend to prevent tiredness, backache, nausea, and loss of appetite, emotionalism and hysteria during pregnancy.

Sunshine in Growth

Sunlight is also especially important during puberty and adolescence, when profound internal reorganizations are taking place. by the aid of sunshine the body manufactures a substance called cholestrin which is essential to calcium metabolism. It is an important aid in building and maintaining health and we should not wait until we become sick to make use of it. It was known to the ancients that “sunshine feeds the muscles.” Today every athlete employs sunbathing as a regular part of his or her training. For it not only adds to the size and qualities of the muscles, it increases the calcium in them and adds to their enduring powers. Muscles subjected to proper sun exposure grow larger, firmer, and have their contractile powers enhanced even without exercise, due partly to the increase of lime in them, and partly to improved nutrition in general.
