Some researchers believe that the incandescent light bulb may be ultimately responsible for a variety of illnesses.
Permanent Jet Lag
Organisms evolved to adjust themselves to predictable patterns of light and darkness, in a physiological cycle known as the circadian rhythm. Once artificial light effectively varied the length of a day, the average night's sleep decreased from around nine consistent hours to roughly seven, varying from one night to the next.
The irregularity prevents circadian rhythms from adjusting to a pattern, and creates a state of permanent "jet lag."
Ulcers, Heart Disease, CancerThis could make people more susceptible to a variety of health problems, since it activates the stress response and weakens the immune system. Irregular sleep cycles can lead to stress, constipation, stomach ulcers, depression, heart disease, and even cancer.
One of the crucial building blocks that helps you optimize your health is getting the right amount of sleep every day.
As you know I am a major fan of technology and fully appreciate the enormous benefits that electricity and efficient lighting have provided. However these benefits come with a price -- the betrayal of your inner clock.
Additionally, sitting inside an office lit with incandescent or non full-spectrum fluorescent lighting many hours during the day and night also starves your body of precious, unfiltered sunlight. Ideally you require- about an hour a day of exposure to sunlight. Unfortunately, most of us don't even come close to receiving that much.
This is such an important and central role to health that I invested many hundreds of hours in finding a practical solution for myself. After extensive investigation I was able to find one of the best full-spectrum lighting systems made.
Unfortunately, they were far too expensive for most to obtain, so I sought the Wal-Mart method and found one of the leading companies in the world that makes light bulbs to be in China. As a result of all this hard work I can now sell an alternative to sickness-inducing incandescent bulbs significantly less than I used to pay wholesale.
I just love international competition and how it is able to lower prices. So you might want to take advantage of modern technology and start moving your health in the right direction with good light. It is really the only lights I use in my home and office because I believe so strongly in them.
There are also a number of ways to ensure you get a good night's sleep. A few tips include:
