    Cancer, heart disease, asthma, depression -- vitamin D3 was supposed to protect against it all. But the supplement may be losing its luster.

    When you take a supplement of Vitamin D it is akin to hiring a trainer in a gym and asking him to do push-ups for you and thinking you are getting the benefit.

    There is a short term benefit for supplementation in a medical context but there is no evidence that long term supplementation works at all and this puts the dermatology idea of burying the sun and just taking pills to bed for a Black Swan.

    Rebuilding your solar redox is the key metric to get right when you want a disease reversal of extended longevity.

    Vitamin D from sun exposure also increases venous O2 saturation. People who stay indoors often develop COPD and depression with panic attacks.


    It is estimated that more than 60 percent of people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have anxiety or depressive disorders. These disorders probably stem in part from concerns about the consequences of the disease at the mitochondrial level (what could be more distressing than struggling to breathe?). People forget oxygen is the terminal electron acceptor in humans.

    Purely mechanical factors may contribute as well: the difficulty these patients experience often leads to faster breathing, which does not necessarily improve the quality of their oxygen supply but can aggravate their physical discomfort and anxiety because of big changes in the resultant ROS involved.

    Rapid breathing can contribute to and exacerbates panic attacks through a vicious circle: fear triggers faster breathing, which increases fear. It also alters lactate metabolism in neurons and astrocytes and this is the real reason the two are linked.

    Sunlight is a calcium channel blocker that alters the firing rate of Voltage-gated channels on cells. This is done in a few ways with sunlight. UVA light = NO release = lowers BP and the blue light in sun balanced by red light also stimulates melanopsin relaxation of the arterioles in our skin. This one reason why just going outside reduces depression and anxiety because sunlight slows breathing.

    Breathing indoors requires us to use suboptimal air which is not moving or mixing with the wind or interacting with the sun so its charge is lower. This poor oxygen level = pseudohypoxia = NAD+ drops = you age faster = More PVN firing = less vagal tone = you get sick quicker indoors.

    Since solar redox and oxygen tensions are linked can this help?

    Sunlight causes a natural cardiac coherence for breathing. It offers more detail about the ways sunlight and meditation can augment breathing exercises that promote relaxation.

    It turns out slow, deep breathing increases the activity of the vagus nerve, a part of the parasympathetic nervous system; the vagus nerve controls and also measures the activity of many internal organs. When the vagus nerve is stimulated, calmness pervades the body: the heart rate slows and becomes regular; blood pressure decreases; muscles relax. How does the brain change its metabolism when this occurs? The hydrogen bonding networks in water are altered and this alters the use of pyruvate and lactate metabolism in the neuron/astrocyte complex.

    When the vagus nerve informs the brain of these changes, it, too, relaxes by lowering PVN firing, increasing feelings of peacefulness. Thus, the solar technique works through both quantum mechanical, neurobiological and psychological mechanisms that are all interwoven in our cells.

    In 2017, for instance, Mark Krasnow of Stanford University and his colleagues showed in mice that a group of neurons that regulates respiratory rhythms (the pre-Bötzinger complex in the brain stem) controls some of the activity of the locus coeruleus, a region involved in attention, wakefulness, and anxiety. Breathing techniques may influence this seat of emotions by modulating the activity of the pre-Bötzinger complex.

    What is the best time to apply slow-breathing techniques? One is during occasional episodes of stress like blue light stress or nnEMF exposure before flying.

    Modern man is intimidated by the sacred aspect of breathing in nature in my opinion. This is connected to our life by way of our colony of mitochondria and, especially, to death. It has been known for a long time. This is why I wrote the Quantum Breathing Patreon blog that covers the Haldane and Bohr effect. This thread adds the effect of sunlight to those effects.

    In the 1869 novel The Man Who Laughs, Victor Hugo wrote: “Generations are puffs of breath, that pass away. Man respires, aspires, and expires.” Ultimately, we don’t like to think that we are nothing more than “puffs of breath.” The 2019 update is that we are smaller puffs of breath when we add the sun to the mix of man.

    How to lower PVN firing and raising the vagal tone:

    1. Breath in the sun. Outside with your skin in the game.
    2. Stand erect because it increases abdominal and thoracic volumes.
    3. Become aware of how you breathe in different environments.
    4. Breathe via your tummy. Place your hand on your gut and feel your breath to learn how to slow down
    5. Near the end of each inhalation, pause briefly while mentally counting “1, 2, 3” and holding the air before exhaling.
    6. Breathe in and out slowly through one nostril, holding the other one closed using your finger; then reverse and continue by alternating regularly.
    7. Think positively when you're slowing your breath down in the sun.

    In life you are either a passenger or a pilot, it's your choice if you want to be reactive or proactive with your choices. You can choose nature or wait for man to come up with a brilliant idea to implant light inside you for your light deficit from your poor choices. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/01/190102151215.htm
