Bathe

Let the sun’s rays heal you. The flow of energy in waves from the sun changes cells and molecules in our skin. The most well-known effect is the production of Vitamin D. However, taking Vitamin D does not confer the same benefits as sun exposure. Vitamin D is now seen as a proxy for sun exposure, rather than being considered the single beneficial molecule from the sun.

Taste

Salt has been used as currency, caused wars and uprisings, and influenced economies. Sodium is essential to the body. The body does all in its power to keep the level of sodium in the blood constant. Low sodium causes everything from fatigue and nausea to seizures and coma.

Enjoy

Butter. There is no substitute. The case for low carbohydrate, healthy fat intakes are increasing daily. Butter is one of these healthy fats; seed oils are not. I refer skeptics to the easy-to-read book, What the Fat.

Stop

Your body needs time for rest and rejuvenation. The current interest in fasting is a rediscovery of ancient practices. Humans have adapted to interruptions to their food supply. We have yet to adapt to a food store on every corner.

Feel

There is a medical reason we feel good walking barefoot on wet grass, soft sand, or even hard concrete. This reason is electrons. We need them. In the body available electrons are carried by molecules often referred to as anti-oxidants.
