God's Plan: Sunshine


Dear brothers and sisters of the congregation of God,

This article is written for your profit and for the profit of the kingdom of heaven. Our sleeping sister Ellen G. White wrote extensively for the express purpose of profiting God's people. Much of what she wrote was devoted to the maintenance of our health, and for our healing.

Sister Ellen outlined eight natural laws or principles of health that were available to all of us; and that if practiced and obeyed would result in vibrant good health and longevity. The laws and principles that she outlined [not in any particular order] are: Sunshine; Pure Water; Pure Air; Adequate Rest; Proper Nutrition; Temperance/Moderation; Exercise; and Faith and Obedience in and to God.

Some of these principles we have learned and readily understand and know the cause and effect of obedience and/or disobedience to these laws and principles.

Ellen G. White extolled Sunshine as one of the 'eight natural laws of health'. Unless we believe and obey [read 2 Chronicles 20:20] we may not fully experience the healing effects of sunshine and sunshine's ability to keep us well. Even modern science now confirms that direct exposure of human skin to Sunshine causes a reaction with the chemicals in the cells of our skin to manufacture Vitamin D [in the form of vitamin D3]. Vitamin D is essential in keeping us well!

Direct exposure of the skin to sunshine provides many benefits. Some of the benefits are: strong healthy bones [absorption of calcium]; a sense of well being [Endorphins]; protection against disease [Cathelicidin]; and sunshine promotes good sleep [Melatonin].

One of the most beneficial effects of sunshine is that it causes the skin to produce Vitamin D3. Human skin when exposed to direct sunlight converts cholesterol into Vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 is then processed by the body which produces a compound called cathelicidin. Cathelicidin is an all natural product of the body and it acts as a powerful antibiotic to destroy germs.

When Vitamin D3 is formed in the skin as a result of direct exposure to sunshine [transforming cholesterol into Vitamin D3] it then stimulates the body to form 'cathelicidin' which is a super strong antibiotic. And its all natural! Cathelicidin is naturally formed in the body as an indirect product of the stimulation of sunlight on the skin! This is the 'antibiotic' that God prescribed in the garden of Eden. It will keep us well and healthy even today! It makes war on cancers, diabetes, and all other diseases!

If we shall obey God and believe His prophets shall we not prosper? 2 Chronicles 20:20. Which do we need most? The protection of man made vaccines [which contain the poisonous element mercury]; or do we need the protection that God has provided to all of us in His wonderful gift of nature; and here in this letter, particularly, sunshine.

Because we get less exposure to direct sunlight in the fall, winter, and early spring, these seasons are cold and flu seasons. You might want to plan to increase your time outside in the direct warmth of the sun in the fall, winter, and spring. Or consider a dietary supplement of vitamin D3 when it is not possible or convenient to be outside in the sunshine.

In addition we must also remember, especially for those who suffer from osteo-arthritis and osteoporosis, that vitamin D is essential to the absorption of calcium and phosphorus from the food in our intestines into the bloodstream [and also re-absorption of calcium by the kidneys] to keep the bones strong and healthy. Sunshine is vitally important to good vibrant bone health! 'Believe in God and so shall you be established: believe His prophets and so shall you prosper!' 2 Chronicles 20:20.

Remember, if it is impossible to spend some more time in the sun during the fall, winter, and spring, consider taking dietary supplemental vitamin D3 of approximately no more than 400 to 600 iu daily supplements divided into two or three doses with your meals.

Note: Vitamin D has the most toxic potential of all the vitamins! While 'theraputic dosages' [higher daily dosages of up to 5000 iu for use in treating specific illnesses or conditions] may be utilized; but not safely for more than thirty days! Research this information and inform yourself. Arm yourself with knowledge!

"Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth." 3 John 2.
