Time Change Health | 5 Ways to Avoid Adverse Effects From Daylight Savings Time

The practice of day light savings time was developed long ago, mainly for farmers to take advantage of all the light available during the day. But prior to the modern informational age, humanity was much more connected to the Earth, and any adverse health effects were limited due to electromagnetic connectivity. Is this practice having an adverse affect on health in our modern age?

The human body is a bioelectrical and chemical machine of unfathomable coordination and harmony. Contrary to the accepted medial view, this coordination actually extends beyond the body, as electromagnetic fields from the Earth and Sun provide an essential foundation for all of its functions. These connections are strongest when the human organism is in direct contact with nature, physically touching the surface of the wet Earth, creating an electrical pathway for negative ions to flow through the body. 

The frequency ranges of the body are organized around the Schumann Resonances, a series of harmonics produced via the Earth and Sun dynamic. The body's rhythmic cycles are essential to health and proper function and we are literally tuned or synchronized to the Earth's rhythms. Sleep patterns, dietary urges, energy production, emotional stability and so on, are all governed by cycles maintained by the body directly as a result of its connection to the Earth. When we lose this connection, chronic mental and physical health problems flourish.

In today's world, when are we ever connected to the Earth? Most of us spend all of our time wearing rubber shoes that prevent our bodies making this essential contact. Further, the electrical grid that powers our technical civilization further disrupts the body's natural processes, de-synchronizing the body.

Now add day light savings time into the mix, which further disrupts our essential rhythmic processes and scores of deleterious effects. Over the past 100 years, these effects have been magnified, creating such conditions as Seasonal Affective Disorder or 'Winter Depression', now affecting 5% of the American population every year. 

But despite pandemic electro-smog and difficulties of modern life, there are ways to restore the body's natural function and avoid the adverse effects of daylight savings time. The below article is a list of five such methods, which in my view, shed light on other practices of the information age which may need to be changed. 

If you're like me, being connected to the Internet is an essential part of your daily life. All too often the first thing I see when I wake up and the last thing I touch before I go to bed is an electronic device. These devices produce a frequency range of light that disturbs the pineal gland in its ability to produce melatonin, the body's natural sleep hormone. As such one method to restore proper function is to simply read a book or listen to some music in a dark place before going to bed and avoid the temptation to check your cell phone, laptop or tv. This will help activate the body's natural sleep process for better rest, health and mental function. 

The habits we form in life provide the foundation for overall health, if left unchecked; they will eventually lead to disease and unhappiness. With all things in life, knowledge will lead to power, if acted upon.

Daylight savings time is very near, and the shorter days and longer nights can wreak havoc on you emotionally and physically. That lost hour of sleep can be killer, too, unless you’re a night owl who appreciates the sun being low in the sky a little bit longer. Moving the clocks in either direction knocks our circadian rhythms out of whack.

If you can’t pack up and move to a part of the world where there is no daylight savings time, here are a few tips for surviving the lack of sunlight – and the onslaught of Christmas decorations in stores.

1. Go Towards the Light

Light prevents the pineal gland in the brain from secreting melatonin, a hormone that produces feelings of sleepiness and regulates the body’s internal clock. As it gets darker and later, the brain produces more of the substance. During the fall and winter, it’s important to expose yourself to light during your waking hours as much as possible to keep the cycle in check. Conversely, it’s important to avoid light at night. Install a nightlight so you don’t have to turn the light if you get up to use the bathroom, for example. Taking melatonin as a supplement may also help your sleep schedule. [1]

2. Eat Whole Foods

Eating processed foods and sugar have been shown to trigger inflammation and make you tired and lethargic, which is exactly what you’re trying to fight. Fill you plate with leafy green veggies, lean protein, good fats and complex carbs to keep your blood sugar in check. You can also naturally produce serotonin, a chemical that improves mood, by consuming plenty of good fats, like olive oil and avocado. [2]

3. Log off and Relax

Shut off your computer and electronic gadgets. The blue light emitted from these devices make it difficult to sleep. In one study, researchers examined the effects of reading on a light-emitting device compared with reading a regular book. Those who read on an electronic device took longer to fall asleep, experienced less deep REM sleep, were sleepier the next day and had trouble waking up. Instead, create a relaxing environment and unwind by reading a book, listening to music, or taking a bath. When you get out of the water and your body temp dips, it helps your brain transition into sleep mode. [3]

4. Don’t Oversleep

The warm, comfy pillows and blankets might beckon to you, but resist the temptation to roll over and hit the snooze button. Getting up early will ensure you’re good and tired that night. [4]

5. Take a Nap – A Short One

If you’ve eaten healthy, gotten plenty of sunshine, turned off your smartphone and dunked yourself in a tub of hot water and you still feel like a character from “The Walking Dead,” go ahead and take a nap, but limit it to 20-30 minutes. A short snooze can refresh your groggy brain’ improve your memory, mood and focus; and possibly even boost your immunity.
