Is Sunlight The Best Medicine?

sunlight-the-best-medicineGiven the recent results from Vitamin D research, could it be so that sunlight is the best medicine there is?

What if a “WONDER-DRUG” existed, that would: ! Reduce the risk of getting more than 60 different kinds of diseases among them:

  • Most kind of cancers (inclusive skin-cancers)
  • Heart Disease
  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
  • Type 1 Diabetes
  • Tuberculosis (TB)
  • Rickets (low bone-density)

! Be available free during at least 6 months and through safe technology the rest of the year

! Have serious side effects only if:

  • Overdosing or not following the recommendations “on the package”.
  • Taken by individuals with skin-type I or with a large amount (>100) of “liver-spots” on their body.

This “miracle-drug” would also:

  • Make calcification, hardening and stiffening of your blood vessels disappear.
  • Make your immune system work at optimal efficiency, enough to fight off infections like the common cold and seasonal flu-epidemics.
  • Strengthen your teeth
  • Raise your mood
  • Strengthen your muscles
  • Improve your metabolism
  • Enhance your sex-life
  • Make you loose weight



Still more than 80% of the world’s population living above the latitude of 40 degree is Vitamin-D deficient most of the year.


Because: The discovery of penicillin and other chemically manufactured drugs plus the fanatic fear-driven propaganda against sunlight with the purpose of selling chemical sunscreen lotions, have made us forget the wisdom and knowledge collected by our ancestors since the beginning of humankind, namely that the sun is necessary for all life on Earth, and that Man is no exclusion.

In 1903, just a little bit more than 100 years ago, the Nobel-prize for Medicine was awarded to the Danish doctor Niels Finsen for his work with treating tuberculosis with UV-light. Even until the fifties, sunlight was considered as an important medical cure and hospitals were constructed with this in the mind of the architects.

However, sunshine is free and when confronted with huge commercial interests, the voices of its few defenders were easily silenced by the manipulating marketing loudspeakers from large, multinational, chemical drug- and sunscreen- companies. The “re-discovery” of the ancient knowledge of UV-light‘s healing power is although gaining more and more momentum, again supported by scientifically obtained proof.

What makes UV-exposure the target of intensive witch-hunt by the established cancer-industry? It is simply because regular and moderate exposure to UV-light is their biggest competitor.

Unfortunately, politicians in many countries are still leaning on the dubious results from narrow researches of which some could be considered to be scientific fraud (since they are omitting contradictory facts) when they are making legislations that are very counter-productive towards common health. Such legislation and regulations are costing taxpayers billions of dollars in the, often unsuccessful, caring of diseases that could be cured simply by restoring the usage of UV-light where it belongs in medical health-care, either provided free from the sun or from inexpensive and easily available technology (sunbeds).

The ignorance (or, even worse, commercial interests) that are “keeping us in the dark” will of course be defeated by common sense supported by proof from recent real scientific medical research. Research that is “sponsored” by the genuine understanding and feeling among the “grassroots” about the need for sunlight for life on Earth. The question is how much more suffering we have to withstand before the ignorance among legislators will be shattered.

Is sunlight the best medicine “only” because of that it gives us vitamin D in the way Mother Nature intended it? No, probably not. The Nitric Oxide we get from UVA is only one example of probably many more benefits we can get from sun-exposure.

You can join this grass-root-movement in many ways. One is to leave your comments (support or objections) to this post. Another is to inform yourself better not by trusting twisted media reports from flawed research, but by your own investigations and by spreading your findings. Some good places for getting real information are:


There is no doubt about it – sunlight is the best medicine!

    Thanks so much for publishing this post. I found it very informative, as I have never realized that the fact that sunlight is so necessary for us has been purposely “hushed up” to sell sunscreen. I always assumed that the reason the “authorities” push the use of sunscreen was to reduce skin cancer.
    I always knew that vitamin D is important, but did not realize how important it is for preventing and healing diseases.

    I really learned a lot from this article. Never thought those things that sunlight can brought to our lives til I read this post though I know that vitamin D is really essential for our health.

    I think a lot of people would take it. I have eczema and a part of me think its because I do not get much exposure to natural sunlight on a daily basis. I work in an office building and only spend probably 10 minutes (and probably even less) of sun walking to and from my car. It’s a shame.

    I was aware of the benefits of Sunlight but there is increase in my knowledge after going through your post. You really explained that what is “importance of Sunlight in our life”.The Source of Vitamin D which protects our body from various major diseases like

    Osteoporosis and Osteopenia
    17 varieties of Cancer (including breast, prostate and colon)
    Heart disease
    High blood pressure
    Metabolic Syndrome and Diabetes
    Autoimmune diseases
    Multiple sclerosis
    Rheumatoid arthritis

    Yes, sunlight is good for vitamin D and also good for getting rid of infant jaundice. That is how we cured our baby’s jaundice.

    What´s that thing of “liver-spots”?. I´m treating Vitamin D deficiency through solar exposure as I don´t tolerate supplements and I have many freckels through my body. I think my skin type is between Type II and III. I don´t want to stop sunbathing because I´m recovering my health.

    I have to say that I used to burn and I was really pale before, but now that I´ve been exposing my skin since the early spring I have tanned for the very first in my life and I can be in the sun for much longer periods without burning. I could not do that before.

    I even bought a lamp to have Vitamin D in winter. I don´t want to avoid using it for having freckels, birthmarks or spot. I don´t know exactly what you´re refering to.

    Interesting this article made me very clear. I did not know that she was the source of vitamin D. Big companies even want to have only profits. That’s why a doctor recommended me a lot of sunbathing.
