A large part of the answer is that we are bio-organisms that need the sun. We draw minerals and vitamins from sunlight, but more so our biological systems are programmed through exposure to the light, creating natural rhythms that affect our overarching well-being. The sun provides building blocks for our body to convert light into vitamins, such as Vitamin D. We are just beginning to learn more and more about these kinds of essential processes that are a direct result of the sun, yet we still only hear about a fraction of what our body converts to our benefit during daytime exposure.
Then there is the sea, deep ocean nutrients, and vibrancy. Deep-sea water has a similar composition to the amniotic fluid which surrounds the fetus during pregnancy. It is the perfect environment for building new young, vital cells. It has intelligence and the same coded DNA language we do. We are made up of twelve different types of salts that keep us balanced, strong and healthy. So your desire for the sun and sea in the depths of winter is your body’s desire for balance, strength, and well-being.
Our connection to the natural world is bigger than we often recognize. The quality and supply of the food and nutrients we consume, the products we place on our skin, even the water we drink – it all works together to fuel our bodies, affecting the quality of our health, our being and our state of mind. Bringing all of these into the model of seasonal and circadian living, in other words living life in tune with the changing rhythms of light and dark and seasonal shifts, is the best support we can give our bodies as we interact with the natural world.
Be cautious of synthetics. Artificial creams create damage, put simply they do not speak the same language as our DNA. Our body sees them as toxic intruders, putting our skin and our whole systems on alert to protect. Products that use these as fillers do so because synthetic creams are cheap, but are they worth the still unknown risks of long-term use? Alternatively, seek products that source the highest quality natural and eco-conscious ingredients and practices. Use products that contain zero fillers, bases, perfumes, chemicals, synthetics or parabens. Use formulas that are never animal tested, and are safe for you, your family, your pets and the earth.
