Can a kiss from Mother Nature make us feel immortal? One day you will kiss someone you can't breathe without and find out that breath is of little consequence.
It’s hard to overstate how intense it feels to be kissed after so many years in a loveless relationship.......When you have a great kiss it is like an ACLS algorithm that uses paddle shocks. Sometimes they bring us back to life after our heart has stopped. There was a part of me I assumed was dead and suddenly there it was, alive and kicking. Going outside and being kissed by the AM light awoken me to what I was missing. With a kiss, she was oxygen and I was dying to breathe.
Marriage is a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and a dollar for your soul. I know, because I turned down the first offer and held out for the dollar by connecting with nature once again ... See MoreSee Less
Up for learning more about the science of (sun)light?Are you awake yet?
The cure is in nature! 42% of SUNLIGHT is a RED light. RED LIGHT = LLLT or PBM.
There are so many truth bombs in this article, so many gold nuggets...Rick wanted to break it down for the lazy people who don't like to read real data:
Do you need to wear sunscreen? NOPE. Not if you spend enough time exposing your skin to the sun's rays in the early AM and late afternoon before sundown.
Because UV rays are low during that time, but IR (Infrared) light is strong during those times of the day DIURNALLY.
Why does that matter?
Read this paper in its entirety and be ready for your jaw to drop several times. IR light is beneficial to us in many ways. Aside from powering our mitochondria to produce more ATP, it also prepares our skin for the coming UV radiation around solar noon. IR light IS THE SUNSCREEN WE NEED to protect us from the deleterious effects of UV radiation.
In the late afternoon, IR light also acts to help repair damage to skin that has been overexposed to UV rays at solar noon.
In order to understand the significance of this, you have to think about how humans evolved. We ate the whole animal, not just the muscle meat. And we spent most of our days outdoors in the sun, hunting-gathering, or playing. As a result of our natural way of life, we were protected from UV rays, because we spent hours outside in the morning and in the evening, which prepared our skin for UV exposure and then helped it repair.
The takeaway? If you are going to the beach this summer, get there EARLY, stay LATE, and make sure your skin is exposed to lots of early mornings and late afternoon sunshine! During solar noon, get enough sun so that your skin gets flush but does not burn. Then wear clothing and hats to block the sun's rays until late afternoon and then...get naked again! The more exposure you give your skin to early morning sunlight, the more resilient it will be to the UV rays midday. ;).
"Yet, it has been shown that at realistic irradiances/doses, IR-A radiation has beneficial effects on collagen metabolism and upcoming UVR damage. Similar to PBM parameters, daily IR-A sun exposure delivers a much lower irradiance and fluence (dose) than powerful artificial sources (760-1450 nm).
One could, therefore, assume that early morning “sun salutation” (Surya Namaskar) and late afternoon procrastination on the beach are actually natural PBM treatments to prevent and repair, respectively. Consequently, if your shadow is taller than you are (in the early morning and late afternoon) you're taking advantage of the beneficial effects of IR-A while avoiding peak (Zenithal) harmful UVR [60, 61]. Ultimately, it is another way of being sun smart." www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4745411/ ... See MoreSee Less
