Can The Sun Cure Cancer?
From What They Won't Tell You: The Sun Is A Full-Spectrum Medicine That Can Heal
"Those that have attempted to convince the world that the Sun, the Earth's
primary source of energy and life causes cancer, have done so with malicious
intent to deceive the masses into retreating from the one thing that can
prevent disease." - Dave Mihalovic, Naturopathic Doctor and writer.
Truth is, we've been systematically lied to about the sun and skin cancer for
years. How many know that there is no definitive proof that the sun alone
causes skin cancer? In the book The Healing Sun, author Dr. Richard Hobday documents a wide array of
studies which show that the sun protects against cancer of the breast, colon,
ovaries and prostate. It can also prevent diabetes, multiple sclerosis, heart
disease and high blood pressure, osteoporosis, psoriasis and seasonal affective
Then there's the case of Dr. Harland G. Call, who was diagnosed with skin cancer
and was advised by a surgeon to have it removed. Instead, he decided to sunbath
the cancerous area. After a short period of continuous sunbathing, the skin
cancer was completely gone. He returned to his MD for a confirmation, and his
doctor confirmed that the skin cancer had disappeared and no surgery was
According to Dr. Bernarr Zovluck, "Cancer is helped by sunbathing, writes Dr.
Zane R. Kime. Kime writes
that those who get more sunlight have less cancer. Sunbathing heals cancer by
building up the immune system and increasing the oxygen in the tissues." Still,
we're bombarded almost daily with dire "warnings" from reputable "authorities"
admonishing us, for our own good of course, to avoid the sun at all costs.
Epidemic Levels Of Sun Phobia
For example, Dr. Robin Ashinoff, chief of dermatological and cosmetic surgery at
Hackensack University Medical Center advised: "Wearing sunscreen and then
deliberately going out in the sun is almost as [bad] as going out with no
sunscreen at all." She continued, "You don't get burned, but the UV rays are
still getting into your skin. Sunscreen is important, but you should also wear
the right clothing and shield yourself as much as possible from direct sun
exposure." Is Dr. Ashinoff advocating a vampire lifestyle? The reality is that the vast
majority of people, including doctors, have been duped into believing the myth
that the sun is toxic, carcinogenic and a deadly health hazard. That's why most
people slavishly and lavishly slather toxic sunscreens on their skin whenever
they anticipate direct contact with the sun's rays. But in fact, most
conventional sunscreens are cancer-causing biohazards. Meanwhile, the multi-billion-dollar cancer industry and the billion-dollar toxic
sunscreen industry are making hay with this hoax. True believers are left
scratching their heads in bewilderment as statistics reveal that the dreaded
malignant melanoma skin cancer is on the rise.
The Sun Doctor
Dr. Auguste Rollier opened the first European "Sun Clinic" in 1903 at Leysin,
Switzerland. He also wrote a very influential book: Heliotherapy. He was
considered the most famous heliotherapist in the world. At his peak, he
operated 36 clinics. Dr. Rollier espoused that the sun was an unsurpassed
broad-spectrum medicine. He healed his patients using a wholesome diet combined
with the power of the sun.
By 1933, there were over 165 different diseases successfully treated with
heliotherapy including tuberculosis, wounds, rickets and much more. Dr.
Rollier's death in 1954 marked the end of sun therapy not because it was
ineffective, but because it had been replaced by Big Pharma's "miracle drugs."

Sun And Tanning Not Just For Vitamin D
As reported by Brant Cebulla (Vitamin D Council 08/12) Sun Exposure: Benefits Beyond D Production
Some of our readers have requested for more information on the benefits of sun
exposure outside of vitamin D production. Fortunately, a review asking this
very question was published in the last issue of Dermato Endocrinology by
Professors Asta Juzeniene and Johan Moan- Juzeniene A and Moan J. Beneficial effects of UV radiation other than via
vitamin D production. Dermato Endocrinology, 2012.
Here is what we know, sometimes incompletely, about the effects of sun exposure
on the human body:
Enhances Mood And Energy
Generally, a little bit of sun exposure is associated with better mood, while
tanners commonly report feeling more relaxed than non-tanners. One study
demonstrated that β-endorphins increase after sun exposure, which would explain this association.
Three studies found no increase in β-endorphin production after sun exposure, but the authors speculate that the
anxiety from a blood draw to check on endorphins would negatively affect
Treats Skin Diseases
These diseases include treatment of lupus vulgaris, psoriasis, vitiligo, atopic
dermatitis and localized scleroderma. Why phototherapy works in the treatment
of these diseases is not completely understood (usually broadband UVB or
narrow-band UVB, but sometimes UVA also), researchers do know of some
mechanisms during phototherapy. UV radiation reduces the rate of cell
proliferation in the skin, activation and proliferation of melanocytes,
reduction of T-lymphocytes, and reduction of Langerhans and mast cells.
Relieves Pain in Fibromyalgia
Sunbathing seems to have potential to reduce pain in patients with fibromyalgia
compared to no exposure. The mechanism is unknown.
Skin Barrier Functions
Skin exposed to UVB and UVA is more resistant to primary irritants. Once again,
the mechanism is unknown.
Protects From Disease Beyond Vitamin D?
In an animal model, researchers discovered that sun exposure is more protective
and suppressive against multiple sclerosis than just vitamin D alone.
Induces Nitric Oxide
UVA exposure induces nitric oxide (NO*) production. It has been suggested that
NO* protects the skin for 20-30 minutes from UV damage, offers cardiovascular
protection, helps wounds and have some anti-tumor activity.
One area that the authors did not mention was melatonin regulation. It is
believed that the more light one is exposed to during the day, the sooner
melatonin production occurs at night. Melatonin is involved in the sleep-wake
schedule and when released, makes the body drowsier and cooler.
While there is much work to be done in the realm of figuring out specific
mechanisms of action induced by UV exposure, we have some clues as to what sun
exposure accomplishes outside of vitamin D production.

believes Paleo dieting, high intensity fitness and sun exposure are the future
