Staring at the Sun
My journey with the ancient practice of sun gazing, began in Arizona, a little over three years ago. I had discovered an incredible diet that was to save my life, by the same man who recommended sun gazing. His name was Vinny Pinto, and he ran a Yahoo group that focused on a man named Hira Ratan Manek. He was originally from India, and is commonly referred to as HRM.
HRM has literally subsisted, and lived off of the sun’s energy since June 18th, 1995. That is right, he has not eaten solid food in 12 years. He has been studied by various researchers, such as the Thomas Jefferson University, and the University of Pennsylvania. Not only have they found his claims to be true, but medical evidence suggests this man is more healthy than a normal person of his age. This year he is 76.
How does he do it? The ancient practice of sun gazing. Doctor’s found his neurons were active, and not dying. His pineal gland is actually growing, not shrinking, which is very unusual in someone over the age of fifty. The greatest average in someone over fifty, is a pineal size of 6×6 mm, HRM’s is 8×11 mm.
SUNLIGHT WILL HELP HEAL YOUR EYES
“Gazing directly into the sun actually improves sight and aids in overcoming disease,,” wrote Dr. Herbert Shelton.
WITHOUT SUNLIGHT YOU WILL DIE”Without sunshine, there would be no life possible on earth,” writes Dr. Edwin Flatto. The sun provides the basis for all life on earth.
The sun is the source of energy for all plants, and indirectly, for all animals. Sunlight purifies water, air and the surfaces of objects.
“Shut up the strongest man in a dark dungeon, and he becomes pale like a corpse, his blood loses its vitality, and he is liable to scrofulous disease. He loses the power of resisting disease influences,” wrote Dr. Thomas Low Nichols.
“Take away the sunlight and all life on earth would soon perish. Deprived of sunlight, man loses physical vigor and strength and will develop a disinclination for activity,” wrote Dr. Herbert Shelton. Shelton wrote that the “jailbird” who has been locked in his cell for sometime with a lack of sunlight, is in line for disease and will waste away.
Feed two animals the same diet but keep one in a dark closet and allow the other to be out in the sunshine. The animal that’s kept in the closet will be weak, stunted and die prematurely.
FOR BEST RESULTS WHEN EXPOSED TO SUNLIGHT, DO NOT USE EYEGLASSES, SUNGLASSES, SUNLAMPS, SUNSCREENS, SUNTAN LOTIONS OR TANNING PILLS
Eyeglasses and contact lenses rob you of energy by blocking some of the ultra violet rays that travel through the eyes to the pineal gland, writes Patricia McCormac.
After discontinuing wearing his eyeglasses, Dr. John Ott writes that he exposed his eyes to the sunlight without lenses. His vision was much improved. He recommended similar therapy to his friends and they received similar improvement in their vision. Ott writes that nothing should block out the full spectrum of sunlight, no glasses of any kind to block the ultra violet rays, and especially, no dark glasses.
Sunglasses block healing ultra-violet light and thus contribute to the increased incidence of blindness and eye disease in this country, writes Dr. Jacob Liberman.
Suntan lotions should not be used because they can cause cancer, writes Dr. Zane R. Kime.
“Artificial sun-lamps can do irreparable damage. None of the lamps, regardless of the price, contain more than a few of the rays found in the sun. The ultra-violet rays, because of their short length in artificial lamps, can be very harmful,” writes Dr. William Esser.
Sunscreen may actually increase the risk of cancer, so proposed California researchers in a paper published in January, 1993, in the Annals of Epidemiology. The researchers contended that UVB- blocking sunscreens had contributed to increasing skin-cancer rates, by disabling the body’s natural alarm mechanism: sunburn. The researchers also posited that because UVB rays are the main source of vitamin D, and because vitamin D may inhibit the progression of melanoma, and because sunscreens block UVB rays- sunscreens might promote vitamin D deficiencies and cause melanomas. (UVB is the shorter wavelength of ultraviolet light that damages the skin. UVA is the longer of the two types of ultraviolet light that reaches the earth. UVA is responsible for tanning.)
In a study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute in January,1993, researchers from the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center applied three common types of sunscreen to mice and then exposed most of them to sunlamps twice a week for three weeks. Melanoma cells were then injected into all the mice. The mice exposed to the ultraviolet (UV) rays, even if they were treated with sunscreen, had a higher incidence of melanoma than those not exposed to UV rays. The researchers theorized that sunscreens may allow enough UV to penetrate the skin to suppress the immune response and/or damage DNA, thus allowing tumors to develop.
UVA can cause skin cancer, particularly melanoma, according to the Texas researchers. The sunscreens used in the mouse study blocked little or no UVA.
Tanning pills are unsafe, writes Consumer Reports. Consumer Reports write that Canthaxanthin, a dye, used in tanning pills, builds up in the retina and liver, causes skin reactions and itching, and leads to a type of hepatitis.
If we choose to expose our nude skins to the sunshine, all we need do is pay attention to our bodies. Our bodies are always talking to us and we must learn to listen. If the sunshine is going to be harmful to us, our bodies will feel uncomfortable in the sunshine. This will force us to withdraw our bodies from the sunshine before the sunshine can injure us. DON’T BLOCK THE SUN OR YOU MAY DEVELOP CANCER BY REDUCING VITAMIN D ABSORPTION
Anything that blocks sunshine from penetrating the skin will reduce the amount of vitamin D that the body makes.
People with lower levels of activated vitamin D are at greater risk for colon cancer, writes the Lancet.
Vitamin D “in man, absorption is through the skin,” by the influence of sunlight, writes Dr. Viviana Virginia Vetrano.
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. -8- 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 u~restrained 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!
