I wonder about the healing powers of the sun. Can the sun heal the body?
Yesterday (an unseasonably warm day) I was able to enjoy the outdoors and the wonderful sun, after being cooped up inside for the past week dragging myself around the house coughing, blowing my nose and trying to get rid of a headache. I headed straight for the lounger. As I closed my eyes I could feel the warmth penetrating my achy body ~ pure heaven. Fresh clean air cleared my sinuses. A soft breeze moved through the tinkling windchine, a peacefulness beyond words.
If this isn't a healing power, I don't know what is. I remember my Dad saying how the sun would always help his aching muscles and make him feel better (he had hemophelia and would suffer from a lot of pain). I believe he was right. And despite all the controversy about the effects of the sun, to me, in moderation, the sunshine is truly a healing force (for the mind and the body)!
