 What I did to Improve my Hormonal Balance

(In a nutshell)
  • Lots of grounding inside using grounding pads or outside with skin touching the earth as much as possible (for protection from EMFs, to lower cortisol stress hormone levels, to reduce inflammation, to reduce pain)  
    • I use portable grounding pads from here:
 (you can see the specials on top left after clicking on this link)
  • Every morning within 30 minutes of waking up, look East towards the sun and expose skin for about 10 minutes (no windows, glasses, or contacts between myself and the sunlight) for Circadian Rhythm and Pituitary gland and Paraventricular Nucleus hormonal balance (blue light in the morning sunlight lets your brain know it is time to be awake)
    • At solar noon go outside for at least 20 minutes (longer when possible but do not stay out long enough to get a sunburn)and expose as much skin as possible to the sunlight photons without wearing sunglasses or contacts so the natural light can get through the retina
    • Use ‘dminder’ app to know when you can increase Vitamin D and the time of solar noon
    • Eat fish 2-3 times a week to increase DHA levels (needed for brain health)
      • Use natural sunlight through windows to see throughout the house whenever possible (to avoid unnatural lighting)
      • If I feel extra stressed, I take Emotional Stress Release drops or if my mind gets into a loop of overthinking about something over and over (doesn't happen when I am eating plenty of the right fats) then I take chill drops (from NES Health).  Both of these do exactly what their name says!

      Circadian Rhythm and the Gift of
      Hormonal Balance
      (More Details)

      I am so excited to share some fantastic information with you!  In my quest for hormonal balance, I have found a way to better achieve it that is accessible to everyone and very simple and easy to do. I happen to think it is a lot of fun, especially since it rewards me with so many benefits.  This has increased my enjoyment of life even when I am not doing it because it helps to balance my hormones and set my circadian rhythm.

      Now without further delay, I present to you my view while doing it today:

      Take 15-20 minutes each morning between about 7:15-11:00 a.m. to take in the morning light photons through your eyes.  Try to do this within 30 minutes after you get out of bed (if you get up before the sun, you will have to wait a bit longer; sorry). Look toward the side so you are not looking directly at the sun.  Be sure to not wear any type of glasses or contacts so the sunlight can go through your retina.

      Surprise!  The early morning sunlight can help to balance your hormones!

      It’s free, it’s easy and it’s fun!

      Just 10-15 minutes (even 2-3 minutes should help) each morning and the sunlight can help to balance your hormones by going through your retina to the anterior pituitary gland.  This gland controls all except for 2 of your hormones. 

      ADRENALS: The paraventricular nucleus in the hypothalamus of the brain controls the hormones released from your adrenals.  The morning light through the eyes helps the PVN function better by bringing in UV and IR light and helping to set the circadian rhythm. 
      Wow!  This is so simple but for many of us it just doesn’t happen.  Hooray! We can fix that and as my daughter would say, "BOOM!", the journey of balancing your hormones begins!  You just have to love this kind of gift that is built right into our existence.

      This is also part of the process for a healthy circadian rhythm.  The photoelectric rays from the sun tell your eyes where you are at in your circadian rhythm.  This is one of the most important things your body needs to know in order to be healthy, happy, sleep well and yes, be at your optimal weight.  Sleeping is part of our hormonal cycle and needs to be greatly valued.  Trouble sleeping is one of the first signs that something is off in your hormonal balance.  Setting your circadian rhythm with morning light will help with getting better sleep.

      My sleep has been so much better now that I am making sure I eat plenty of coconut oil and DHA and spending time outside taking in the morning light through my eyes.  Not only am I sleeping more but I have long dreams.  Long dreams are a sign that I am having the type of sleep that is great for cellular repair.

      Even 2-3 minutes of sunlight photons through the retina can help set your circadian rhythm and improve hormonal balance. I usually do this for about 10 minutes.  It is best to look towards (not directly at) the sun within 30 minutes of getting out of bed in the morning.  This will begin the process of setting your circadian rhythm and give you a great start towards hormonal balance. Photons on the skin are also an important part of hormonal balance so don't be afraid to let the sunshine on the surface of your skin also.

      I have an east window in my bedroom that has 2 window panes I can open and lay flat to let the sunlight in.  Here is a video.  It is a little tricky taking a video towards the sun.

      When I look out this window, I get very close to the window and I look at the pine tree on the left for a while and then the chestnut tree on the right so the photons can enter the eyes without looking directly at the sun.  I also make sure there is skin exposed to the photons.  Here is a photo through the same window so you can see the trees a little better.

      I prefer going outside but when in a pinch, this will do.

      Fats make up 60 percent of the brain and the nerves that run every system in the body.  It is important that we get the right fats.  The brain sends chemical messengers throughout the body.  Omega 6 (linoleic) and omega 3 (alpha-linolenic) fatty acids are very important for a healthy brain and body.  DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is an omega 3 fatty acid.  DHA is in high concentration in the brain and the highest body concentrations of DHA are found in the membrane of the photoreceptor outer segments of the retina.  I include DHA foods in my diet to support the function of the retina which is especially important when using sunlight photosynthesis for hormonal balance.
      Eat enough protein (grass-fed beef, fish, farm eggs if no allergy, chicken, etc.) and fat (helps you feel full to prevent sugar and simple carbohydrate cravings & good for the brain) for breakfast. Eat 1-3 tablespoons of coconut oil per day (begin with only 1 teaspoon per day and gradually increase  Gently massage near gallbladder to help digest fats, if needed (body needs to be able to assimilate fats; for brain health).

      Circadian Rhythm and
       Hormonal Balance Interference

      We have learned about the value of photosynthesis from the sun's rays and setting our circadian rhythm by looking toward the sun within 30 minutes of rising.  The blue light in the morning sunlight tells our brain it is time to be awake. 

      What might be interfering with your circadian rhythm and hormonal balance?

      Blue Light from Electronic Devices Near the End of the Day 

      Blue light from the morning sun actually tells our brain it is time to be awake and so it helps to set our circadian rhythm for the day.  However, exposure to non-natural blue light from computers, cellphone, television screens, etc. near the end of the day can keep us from going to sleep.  See link to blue light study below and quote from *Harvard study about the possible link to higher cancer rates of night shift workers. 

      It is best not to be looking at the screen of a computer, cellphone or other electronic devices 2-3 hours before bedtime.  If there is no way around not looking at a screen before bed, you can wear blue light filtering glasses.  I avoid screens before bed for the most part, but on occasion when I do need to look at a screen in the evening, I wear my orange, blue filtering glasses.

      Uvex Skyper safety eyewear (orange tinted) was tested by Consumer Reports and was found to cut out almost all blue light.                             
      I purchased my pair from amazon (I will try to add a link on the right column of my blog). 


      The health risks of nighttime light

      Study after study has linked working the night shift and exposure to light at night to several types of cancer (breast, prostate), diabetes, heart disease, and obesity...exposure to light suppresses the secretion of melatonin, a hormone that influences circadian rhythms, and there's some experimental evidence (it's very preliminary) that lower melatonin levels might explain the association with cancer.
      A Harvard study shed a little bit of light on the possible connection to diabetes and possibly obesity. The researchers put 10 people on a schedule that gradually shifted the timing of their circadian rhythms. Their blood sugar levels increased, throwing them into a prediabetic state, and levels of leptin, a hormone that leaves people feeling full after a meal, went down.
      Even dim light can interfere with a person's circadian rhythm and melatonin secretion. A mere eight lux—a level of brightness exceeded by most table lamps and about twice that of a night light—has an effect, notes Stephen Lockley, a Harvard sleep researcher. Light at night is part of the reason so many people don't get enough sleep, says Lockley, and researchers have linked short sleep to increased risk for depression, as well as diabetes and cardiovascular problems. Harvard study of blue light:
