The Circadian Rhythm How does it effect everything that you are?

The Circadian Rhythm...

Science Daily describes it this way...

   A circadian rhythm is roughly [a] 24 hour cycle in the physiological processes of living beings, including plants, animals, fungi and cyanobacteria. In a strict sense, circadian rhythms are endogenously generated (having an internal cause or origin), although they can be modulated by external cues such as sunlight and temperature.

  Recently I have discovered... that after embarking on a​​ dietary program that includes Mediator Release Testing (MRT), which is the primary food sensitivity test for inflammation in the body. I found that after 10 months that my body was settling into a stable weight of 198 pounds.
  My height is just under 6ft, for a man my age (56YO) my optimal weight is between 133-179 pounds.
  In the researching of why I may be "weight challenged" or "stuck," I found that light introduced through the optic nerve of the eye triggers "the" wake-up call of our circadian rhythm (CR). I have found that gazing at the sun each morning within 15 minutes of sunrise (this can be safely accomplished due to the sun's low angle of incidence) will restart my CR internal clock.
  I have found that if I eat a very large high protein, low sugar breakfast immediately after I sun gaze (for 5 minutes), I find that I am satisfied throughout the morning well past my usual time for lunch! 
   Also, I've researched cold thermogenesis therapy (Doctor Jack Kruse has cutting edge information on this topic) can assist greatly in diminishing fat within the body. This is the same process that non-invasive body sculpting works on; usually a doctor will place a frozen metal plate on the client's bodily areas they would like diminished a little bit. For the past week, I have been submerging myself in our pool (58-64 degrees) each morning immediately after breakfast for 20 minutes. This I have found is an incredible meditation in breathing and acceptance of my physical environment.
  Remember, as mentioned above, that temperature and sunlight modulates our circadian rhythm. Blue light radiating from our technological devises such as phones, TV, computers, etc.. actually restart our inner clock, thus throwing our CR off, this is as if the sun is rising all over again! This has an ill effect on our individual body clocks. Even the gut has it's own body clock, that is influenced by light taken in through our eyes; leading to an imbalance throughout the body's systems. As a means to counter this effect, there are blue light filters for all of your technological screens; these are sold online (purchased ours through and these may help you as they have helped my family. 
   When it is dark, our bodies receive a signal to wind down, rest, recover, to sleep. This signal impacts everything from brain function, energy levels, appetite, hormone levels, to the function of your organs! Your emotional state, mood, and most of all in this article your metabolism is effected. If our CR clock is off, and the body feels that it is night when it is not... you get the idea.
  A circadian rhythm that is off time, disrupts the appetite regulation center of the brain; thus we tend to eat more, and the body's ability to digest will be impacted as well. As a consequence many of our naturally "timed" bodily functions are out of sync. 
   In closing, what do I want to share with you? How has my 198 pound body responded to my research? At the end of one week, on my new protocol, of wake, sun gaze 5 minutes, eat a big high protein low sugar breakfast, immerse my body in cold water for 20 minutes, drink lots of filtered non-floridated water (at least 1 gallon) throughout the day, light exercise in the late afternoon (around 5-6pm)  and...wait for it... my body has broken the hold it has had on losing weight! By four pounds. 194 pounds as of today 3/9/16 and continuing...I feel healthy, my snacking sensations have diminished significantly, and I feel well!  
  I have purposely not added a bunch of links for you to research, this is due to my feeling that if you are interested, then follow your own path. It will mean a lot more to you in the final analysis. 
 Bless you dearest ones on your journey to a vital, more healthy you!
