How to have fun in the sun!

It’s that time of year where we head out into the sun to enjoy outdoor barbecues, swimming, vacations and sun bathing. If you are anything like me, I grew up spending my summers at the pool. There are quite a few summers I recall being so super dark from the sun and being proud of my first sunburn. Everyone always told me to be sure I wore sunscreen to protect myself from cancer. Little did I know that my years as a child of being in the sun would eventually lead to sun rash in some of my final years of being a lifeguard.

Hopefully to spare some of you the sun effects that I have, I wanted to share how to have fun in the sun from a nutritional, non-chemical kind of way. Why? There is quite a bit of debate out there canoeing-1185309_640about your typical sunscreens and what they prevent so how about a few alternatives, eh? One of my favorite resources is EWG.org/SkinDeep/. They even have a specific sunscreen sheet and rates the various brands so you can find something that is acceptable to you. The huge thing here is knowing what you are doing and simply not accepting modern advertising as the know all to what is best for you.

Did you know that sunscreen isn’t all it’s cracked up to be anyways? There are lots of ways to reduce sun exposure so a few things to keep in mind include: clothes, shade, sun glasses, playing in the early morning or evening hours, and/or check the UV index.

Another great way to help you body from the inside is by utilizing a few of the Standard Process supplements. Some people will utilize various ratios but what seems to be quite effective is taking Cataplex F & Calcium Lactate before going into the sun and after. Some have added in Tuna Omega-3 oil or Cataplex G. The results of doing these 2-3 supplements has been such an amazing support to myself, my son, my family as well as other clients. Not long ago a fair-skinned family traveled to Hawaii and came how with wonderful golden skin instead of the previous experiences of red, blisters and burns.

So, go enjoy your fun in the sun. Stay safe and be sure to support your body as you enjoy the time of year.  We look forward to seeing you soon and helping you, help you keep your body healthy!
