Let the Sunshine In..
The proper amount of sunlight can have healing and cleansing effects on the body. While too much sun can cause adverse effects on health, too little can have negative health effects also.

What are some of the benefits of sunlight?

Perhaps one of its greatest benefits may be the strengthening of the immune system. Fungal infections of the skin are cured or go into remission after sunlight therapy. White blood cells and antibody levels increase, and neutrophils are stimulated to engulf bacteria more rapidly with exposure to ultraviolet light or sunlight in amounts that do not redden skin.

Studies have shown that repeated short exposures to the sun lower cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, and blood sugar. Sunlight speeds the elimination of toxic chemicals, including metals and pesticides. It also has a dramatic effect on trace minerals, making them more accessible to the body. Jaundice is reduced in both children and adults by exposure to sunlight. Many skin diseases, including acne and psoriases, improve with exposure to sun.

Dr. Esther John of the North Carolina Cancer Center has found that a moderate exposure to sunlight very well may lower the risk of breast cancer by 30 to 40%. It has been found that because of light’s influence on various physiological and psychological functions, moderate sunlight may profoundly influence mood and fertility in women. PMS has been proven extensively to be quite responsive to light treatment. It appears that light affects serotonin levels in the brain, which will elevate or improve mood.. Women receiving adequate levels of sunlight report less depression, fewer mood swings, better sleep, more energy, increased concentration and greater mental alertness. Sunlight has been found to be beneficial in the treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, insomnia and bulimia as well.

Sunlight has been found to be extremely beneficial in the treatment of depression. According to Dr. Norman Rosenthal of the National Institute of Mental Health. “Light, a versatile therapeutic tool, has been shown scientifically to have beneficial clinical effects in treating depression. Light therapy may be used alone or in concert with other modalities to treat depression, and properly administered, has no known side effects.” The December 1995 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association stated, “… light therapy should be regarded as a first-line treatment, given its high success…”

Why tubular instead of traditional skylights?Tubular skylights emit more light than traditional skylights because of the high reflectivity of the mirror-like light pipe.

Tubular skylights are far more energy efficient than traditional skylights. They are designed with a sealed shaft which minimizes the transfer of heat or cold into your home, unlike traditional skylights which generate heat.

Tubular skylights scatter 100% of the natural light spectrum through the use of a diffuser, thereby eliminating the spot light effect common with the traditional system.

99% of harmful UV rays are absorbed by both the specially designed dome and by the light pipe, thereby eliminating the bleaching effect on rugs and furniture.

Tubular Skylights are far more economical; a tubular skylight can be installed in less that two hours-a fraction of the time it takes to install a traditional skylight. No structural changes or painting required for the installation of a tubular skylight.

Seasonal affective disorder (also called SAD) is a type of depression that occurs at the same time every year. If you’re like most people with seasonal affective disorder, your symptoms start in the fall and may continue into the winter months, sapping your energy and making you feel moody. Less often, seasonal affective disorder causes depression in the spring or early summer.

Don’t brush off that yearly feeling as simply a case of the “winter blues” or a seasonal funk that you have to tough out on your own — you may have seasonal affective disorder. Treatment for seasonal affective disorder includes light therapy (phototherapy), psychotherapy and medications. Addressing the problem can help you keep your mood and motivation steady throughout the year.Install An American Dream Tubular Skylite in the dark areas of your home or office today, Bath rooms,Kitchens,Hall ways,Closets,living room,and dining areas are all great places to light up your world.
