SICK? WELL? … SUNBATHING HELPS YOU AND EVERYONE

By Dr. Bernarr, D.C. D.D.

SUNBATHING DOES NOT CAUSE CANCER OF THE SKIN NOR WRINKLES.
SUNBATHING HELPS HEAL CANCER OF THE SKIN.

Part 3

HOW TO SUNBATHE CORRECTLY

“Sun-baths must, of course, be taken in the nude because clothing prevents passage of the sun’s rays to the body and the result is only heat and sweat,” writes Dr. William Esser.

“A full sunbath in the nude is ideal. This is not a mere cosmetic measure, but a health requirement for greatest value,” wrote Dr. Herbert Shelton.

“Wild animal life spends the cool portions of the day in the sun and seeks the shade and rest when it is hottest,” wrote Dr. Shelton.

“Absorb the sun’s rays during the early morning or just before sunset, when the sun’s rays are slanting, and when your shadow is longer than you are,” writes Dr. Edwin Flatto.

“Rooms which are poorly ventilated, into which the sunshine is not permitted to shine and which are damp and not dried by your home heating system are destructive of both life and health,” writes Rise Rafferty. Rafferty also writes, shutters and heavy curtains block the life-giving rays of sunlight from the chamber. This should not be so.

A sunny exposure, plenty of large windows, and no blinds or curtains, wrote Dr. Thomas Low Nichols.

CANCER OF THE BREAST, PROSTATE, REPRODUCTIVE ORGANS & COLON ARE CAUSED BY NOT EXPOSING THESE VITAL ORGANS TO THE SUN & AIR

Unfortunately we are forced in our “un-civilization to constantly keep covered with tight, restrictive garments and undergarments, brassieres, panties, underpants,& bathing suits, our breasts, prostates, reproductive organs and colons.

“No skin can be maintained in any thing like a clean condition if it ‘does not come in contact with the sun and air,” wrote Dr. Herbert Shelton.

Shelton also wrote “Complete organs may be removed from the body, not only the arms and legs, but some of the internal organs, and life will continue as before, but if the function of the skin is suspended for only a few minutes, death is the result” … “The resistant powers of Elie-normal skin counteracts in a marvelous way those changes of temperature to which the body is so frequently subjected.

The skin weakened by clothing is unable to do this very effectively.” “The skin that has become weakened by clothing serves as a less effective barrier to infectious matter from the outside.”

“Man also breathes through his skin and it is vitally necessary that a constant supply of fresh pure air reach the skin if it is to carry on its respiratory function normally. A healthy skin is essential to normal health and can be had only by giving it the advantage of those agencies which are intended by nature to come in contact with and affect the skin.”

“Anyone who ever had his feet to sweat knows how disagreeable is the odor that exudes from them when his or her shoes are removed. Every one is acquainted with the fact that the feet of the ‘bare foot boy with cheeks of tan’ may sweat the whole day through without producing such a condition. Why the difference? It is because the sun and air disintegrate and carry away the excretions from the skin of the feet. If they are tightly sealed up in those leather sweat boxes called shoes they are not only denied the benefits of light and air but are forced to remain in their own filthy exudations. Someday man will substitute the sun and air bath for the present water bath.”

“The manual laborer goes to work on a hot summer day and sweats profusely throughout the day. His clothes become saturated with sweat. It gives off a very disagreeable odor. The hands and face which have been exposed to the sun and air do not give off such an odor. If one examines he finds the space between the man’s body and his clothes occupied by foul hot air and gases which are very repugnant to the olfactory sense. The man is literally wallowing in his own excretions, he has them bound to him by his clothing so that they escape slowly. This is filthy. This same thing is true of every one who wears clothes whether they are ‘high collared’ financiers or just plain folks. It is not true of those who work without clothing. This condition caused by the clothing weakens the skin. In many cases it is almost dead.”

“Man’s resistance to atmospheric changes is also lowered to such an extent that every time he meets a sudden change in temperature he suffers. The Indian could travel all day in a blinding snowstorm or swim frozen streams but if his ‘pale face’ brother attempted this he died a few days later of pneumonia. A skin debilitated by the hot house conditions produced by clothing is not an adequate protection for its owner. The sooner he begins to harden and revive it the better it will be for his health.”

“This attitude toward clothes will have to pass away if man is again to enjoy the health and vigor that is his by right. In this we have said nothing about the evils of corsets and high heeled shoes worn by women and the worse styles in men’s clothing, as we were dealing with clothes as they exclude the light and air from the body. The effects of these two things are indeed bad.”

“So prone are we to regard those conditions under which we are born and reared as natural and to look upon those things which the majority of mankind do as an average as the best for us to do as a whole that almost everyone regards clothing as both natural and best for man.

The fact is, clothing is both artificial and harmful.” “In truth man was designed by the Creator to enjoy the direct rays of the sun and the soothing and strengthening influence of the winds over the whole surface of his body. He is by nature a nude animal.”

Dr. C. W. Saleeby, wrote in, “Sunlight and Health”, ” … this most beautiful, versatile and wonderful organ (skin) is, for the most part, smothered, blanched and blinded in clothes, and can only gradually be restored to the air and light which are its natural surroundings. Then, and only then, we learn what it is capable of.”

Arnold Rickli, whose sun and air institution in Switzerland attracted patients from all over the world in the 19th century, wrote: “Man is made to live in the open air; therefore when exposed to the action of light, air and sun, he is in his real element. As a natural agent, water takes only an inferior place, above it comes air, whilst light takes precedence of every other natural agent, and is the greatest essential wherever organic life exists. The nervous system, which is an inherent principle of our organism is acted upon by light, especially through the skin. The purpose of the air treatment is the strengthening of the skin by restoring its natural functions and vitality and elasticity it has absorbed from its primitive state when directly in contact with the skin.”

Sylvester Graham, wrote in “Lectures on The Science of Human Life”: “If man were always to go entirely naked, the external skin, the anatomical structure and functional character and relations of which we have fully contemplated, would be preserved in a more healthy and vigorous state, And perform its functions more perfectly, and thereby the whole human system in all its properties, powers and interests, would be benefitted; the circulation, and particularly the venous circulation which is near the surface, would be more free, full and perfect; respiration or breathing would also be more free, full and perfect; voluntary action would be more unrestrained and easy; the bones would be less liable to disease and distortion; all the muscles of voluntary motion would be better developed and more powerful; in short, the anatomical development and symmetrical proportion, and the physiological power, and functions of every part in the whole system, would be more perfect; and, as a natural consequence, the sensual appetites would be more purely instinctive, and exert a less energetic and despotic influence on the mental and moral faculties, and imagination would be deprived of its greatest power to do evil”.

EAT FRUITS & PLANTS TO GET STORED SUN ENERGY

Fruits and plants have the ability to trap and store sun energy. We get our energy from eating fruits and plants. When we eat fruits & green leafy vegetables, we are eating stored sun power.

SUNBATHING HAS BEEN USED TO HEAL, SINCE THE DAWN OF HISTORY

“For untold centuries the sun has been worshiped as the visible symbol of the creative power,” wrote Bernarr McFadden.

“From the dawn of history the sun has been utilized specifically as an aid to the restoration of health and as a means of maintaining and increasing it. The ancient, Greeks and Romans, Egyptians and Assyrians, Arabians, Babylonians and Cretans, the Aztecs, and the early Chinese and Japanese, the inhabitants of India and most of the other nations that were glorious in their day, derived their superb health partly from their contact with the rays of the sun, and healed their ailments by their aid.”

HIPPOCRATES, THE FATHER OF MEDICINE, PRACTICED THE SUN-CURE

Hippocrates, “the Father of Medicine”, practiced the sun-cure in the temple of Esculapius on the island of Cos, in ancient Greece.

Hippocrates used “medicine (drugs) very little but relied upon sunlight, hydrotherapy, diet and water drinking, rest, and gymnastic exercise,” wrote Bernarr McFadden.

SUNBATHING HELPS EVERYONE LOOK, FEEL, GET AND FUNCTION BETTER

Everyone sick or well, looks better, feels better, gets better and functions better, after exposing every part of their nude bodies to the beautiful sunshine. Sunbathe each moment you can. It helps you in every possible way!
