Stop wearing your sunglasses to increase your health today

Hello, everyone! Dr. Saylor from Van Every Family Chiropractic here with a friendly reminder about the wonders of sunlight for our health. Our bodies are intricate systems that thrive with a little help from our natural environment, especially sunlight. Here’s how soaking up some Michigan sunshine (without sunglasses, when possible) can benefit various systems in your body:

**Checklist for Sunlight Benefits:**
– **Endocrine System:** Sunlight helps regulate hormones that control everything from your mood to how your body grows and processes food.
– **Mood and Sleep:** Natural light boosts serotonin levels, improving mood and helping set your body’s internal clock for better sleep.
– **Vitamin D Production:** Just a few minutes of sun exposure helps your body produce Vitamin D, which is crucial for bone health, immune function, and fighting off depression.
– **Immune System:** Vitamin D from sunlight also plays a role in strengthening your immune system.
– **Skin Health:** In moderation, sunlight can help with certain skin conditions, though it’s important to balance this with the risk of too much sun exposure.

**Important Tips:**
– Enjoy the Michigan sunshine, but remember to protect your skin with sunscreen if you’ll be outside for more than a short while.
– Try to get sunlight exposure in the morning or late afternoon when the sun is less intense.

Making the most of the sunny days we get in Michigan is not just enjoyable—it’s a simple, effective way to support your health across these key systems. So next time the sun’s out, step outside and let its rays help keep your body and mind in harmony. Stay healthy and vibrant, everyone!
