This article highlights recent research suggesting that sunlight can help those with gut problems (like me?), but it only seems to help those with vitamin D deficiency. For the past several years I’ve actively sought out lots of sunshine in the winter months, as I found it really helped lessen the tightness in my chest. I also started taking vitamin D pills per a friend’s recommendation, and that works very well too.
It’s very interesting how God created our bodies to interact with the environment, and even work most of the time in a sinful, cursed world.
