Indians have been doing Surya Namaskar (seeing sunrise facing sun) for thousands of years, and were mocked by the West. On the other hand, the western scientists probably spend millions to prove What Hindu Indians Knew Centuries Ago, and were doing.
Recently on Aug 3rd, a professor of Neurobiology at Stanford Medicine, Host of the Huberman Lab Podcast whose complete focus of study is on Science & Health Research & Public Education tweeted:
Viewing sunlight in the morning causes a 50% increase in circulating cortisol, epinephrine and dopamine. These leverage healthy increases in energy, immune system function and mood.
Let us understand what Mr Andrew’s study, the benefits we derive by seeing the sun early morning every morning.
Cortisol – Cortisol is an essential hormone that affects almost every organ and tissue in the human body. It plays several key roles, including: Regulating body’s stress response, helping control body’s use of fats, proteins and carbohydrates and metabolism, Suppressing inflammation.
Epinephrine – is in a class of medications called alpha- and beta-adrenergic agonists (sympathomimetic agents). It works by relaxing the muscles in the airways and tightening the blood vessels.
Dopamine – is a type of neurotransmitter and hormone. It plays an essential role in functioning the body properly like movement, memory and pleasurable reward and motivation.
High or low levels of dopamine are associated with many mental health and neurological diseases
In his study he described how the mechanisms by which different wavelengths of light impact the cells, tissues and organs of the human body, and how specifically timed light exposure of specific wavelengths can be used to improve sleep, enhance alertness, modulate hormone levels, and improve mood.
The Vedic Religion of the Sun and Light
The Vedas, with which classical Yoga is closely connected, are based upon a solar symbolism as a religion of light and of the Sun. The Sun is the supreme deity of the Vedas, the Divine power in Heaven, which functions in the Atmosphere as Lightning and on Earth as Fire, which are the three main manifestations of light in our visible world. The Vedic ritual, which is the main outer Vedic practice, involves making offerings to a sacred fire in order to connect with the beneficent powers of the solar deity.
