Sun is Good Medicine

Spring is in the Air. 15 minutes of sun per day is a great source of vitamin D for the body. The sun is great medicine for the mind, body and spirit. Try allowing your body to breath the natural sun without the use of sunscreen. Sun can be soothing to those that suffer from depression. Some studies suggest that more than 21% of adolescents suffer from vitamin D deficiency. If you are wearing a sunscreen with more than an 8 spf, you are blocking 95% of vitamin D absorption. It is critical to allow your skin to soak in the sun without the use of sunscreen. Enjoy your summer, but please remember to enjoy the sun as well.
