cannot even roll over because I am so dizzy. When I try to get up I fall over as if I am drunk as a skunk.
I used to wake up at 3.15 and remember that was the same time things happened in all the horror movies, then I'd scare myself silly till I
fell asleep again. lol.Edwyna, I wonder if your fiance's father was advised to let him sit in the moonlight for health reasons, i.e. Light Therapy.
I found this article today, you might find somethign of interest. Sorry I've completely forgotten how to do a link. Moonlight may be beneficial to
sick - Four years ago, UA alumni Richard and Monica Chapin were searching for a way to help a friend stricken with pancreatic cancer."We used to talk
about finding ways to help her," Richard Chapin said. "And light therapy came up as a very big deal."
Although their friend died before they could complete it, they embarked on a $2 million project, uncovering research indicating that light from the
moon could have healing powers.
"Moonlight is different from sunlight in that it has its own chemical makeup and spectrum," Chapin said. "Using these parts of the spectrum may
indeed help our bodies and immune system."
After following research and a hunch regarding the importance of moonlight on health, the Chapins put their heads together with a team of experts
whose backgrounds ranged from optical sciences to mechanical engineering.
Two years later, the result was a massive five-story-high by 60-foot-long moonlight collector, which lives in the darkness of the desert near Kitt
Peak, where the greatest amount of moonlight can be reflected.
"We worked long and hard on it and spent a lot of time and money to come up with the first of its kind," Chapin said. "It collects more light than
any telescope on earth, and this type of light can be projected at the size of a pinpoint laser or spread out to a 10 or 15 foot area."
Each night, the interstellar light application reflects the light projected from the moon. When aimed towards humans, Chapin said, the effects on
health are awe-inspiring.
"We have had over 250 people that have been through it now at different exposures," Chapin said. "Their stories are amazing, from pain alleviation
to helping with depression. Something about the moonlight leaves people feeling great." Of course, not all of the results have been this spectacular.
Each exposed group consists of about 30 at a time, and often there are two or three people who say that they feel close to nothing after exposure to
the celestial light, Chapin said.
"We are still trying to understand the time periods of exposure," Chapin said. "There were some people who said, 'Thank you, but I didn't feel
But for the participants who did experience changes, Chapin added, the effects of moonlight exposure have led to weight loss of almost 100 pounds in
one case, and the temporary disappearance of pre-cancerous cells after an exposure of only two minutes in another case.
