Learn about the healt effects of sunlight and learn how to make nut cheese
After a twenty minute audience generated health question and answer session, there will be two presentations. Dr. Adiel Tel-Oren will discuss in detail the health benefits of sunshine. Jillian Love will then give a demonstration on how to make nut cheese. Civilization’s Sun-Deficiency Epidemic Adiel Tel-Oren, MD, DC, CCN Sunlight influences hormone secretion, libido, heart rate, alertness, sleep propensity, body temperature, and gene expression. Therefore, it is not surprising that human physiology, well-being, immune response and productivity are all affected by the daily and seasonal changes in the solar spectrum. When you are with the rhythm of nature you sleep more soundly, cope more easily with stress, reduce anxiety and depression, and reduce the risk of autoimmune disorders. Conversely, exposure to unnatural light sources at the wrong time of the day is highly detrimental to human health. In Nature, humans (like all other life forms) have resided outdoors (structures with doors did not exist...). Since time immemorial, our ancestors would experience significant daily doses of full-spectrum solar radiation even when seeking intermittent shelter within shallow caves and shadows cast by trees and rocks. They had to gather their food and create their tools during daylight Today’s obsessions with technology, light-deprived life, altered light rhythms, and imbalanced light spectra dramatically compromise our health by causing severe imbalance and deficiency of hormonal, neurological, behavioral, vascular, immunological, and dermatological photo- products, many of which are discussed below or within the book Embrace The Sun. Modern people shun the sun, stay up well past dusk, spend much of their time indoors, cover most of their skin during the day, and bombard themselves with artificial light at night. They alternate between deficiency of sunlight and excess of “junk” light, severely disrupting their natural clocks. is creates confusion in the signaling within our bodies, hampering our physiological functions, resistance to illness, and sense of well-being. Furthermore, the fear of sunshine created by orthodox medicine and the pharmaceutical industry (both harnessing the commercial power of modern media, as documented in Embrace The Sun) has caused individuals to avoid the sun or apply sunscreen products, which block beneficial solar wavelengths. Sunlight is the conductor in the symphony of living. It governs our biological clocks, behaviorism and daily metabolic processes. Existence has evolved around the dance between the cycles of light and darkness, also known as the circadian rhythm. The term circadian rhythm is derived from the Latin root circa diem, “about a day.” These inner rhythms have a course of approximately 24 hours, and provide a pattern that anticipates what we need to be healthy. ey regulate our day-to-day biological routines, which are synchronized to our physical environment and are stimulated by various photic (visible) spectra and non-photic (invisible) spectra of solar radiation. Circadian rhythms control the timing, quantity and quality of hormones and neurotransmitters the body produces, which regulate appetite, energy, mood, sleep and libido,3,4 thus supporting health and maintaining disease resistance. He will discuss the healing and health benefits of UVA and UVB light Cost. $10 per person: $60 for a year
