"Eliminate the Fear of Skin Cancer" is the presentation given by Dr. Adiel Tel-Oren MD, DC, LN, DACBN, DABFM, DABOM, CCN, FABDA at the September 20, 2018 episode of the Silicon Valley Health Institute.
oday’s obsessions with technology, light-deprived life, altered light rhythms, and imbalanced light spectra dramatically compromise our health by causing severe imbalance and deficiency of hormonal, neurological, behavioral, vascular, immunological, and dermatological photo-products, many of which are discussed below or within the book Embrace The Sun. Modern people shun the sun, stay up well past dusk, spend much of their time indoors, cover most of their skin during the day, and bombard themselves with artificial light at night. They alternate between deficiency of sunlight and excess of “junk” light, severely disrupting their natural clocks. This creates confusion in the signaling within our bodies, hampering our physiological functions, resistance to illness, and sense of well-being.
Furthermore, the fear of sunshine created by orthodox medicine and the pharmaceutical industry (both harnessing the commercial power of modern media, as documented in Embrace The Sun) has caused individuals to avoid the sun or apply sunscreen products, which block beneficial solar wavelengths. Certain populations hide their body from the sun because of religion or tradition, and others because of cold weather. Many societies today reside in “unnatural” geographical latitudes (far away from the tropical origins of humanity), thanks to technological advancements that allow humans to survive (but not thrive) in regions exhibiting harsh conditions (shorter days, cold climate) during several months of each year.
Urban dwellers may suffer from blocked beneficial sunrays due to overcast skies, tall buildings, or persistent pollution particles. These disturbances to vital light rhythms and intensity have contributed to depression, cancer, hormone imbalances, anxiety, sleeping disorders, autoimmunity, allergies, cardiovascular disease, and other chronic illnesses.
So how can we reset our clocks, regain our vitality, improve our performance, prevent disease, and avoid severe deficiency of solar photo-nutrients, if our lifestyle, location, work, climate, clothing choices, traditions, pollution, or season won’t allow us to receive our daily dose of sunlight naturally?

Dr. Tel-Oren has founded and supported many projects including the Ecopolitan Health Network (headquartered in Minneapolis), which includes detoxification and healing clinics, non-profit 100% organic raw vegan restaurants, Foraging Retreats, Eco-Treks in Nepal, an Eco-Village in Wisconsin (in progress), and a Hypoallergenic Gluten- free bakery (www.greenbakery.net).

Dr. T is an unusually knowledgeable person with the goal of empowering others. He has a sharp mind and an open heart, coming from a place of truth and integrity. He works tirelessly with people around the globe to make a difference. He is also the founder of several health and charity programs worldwide, including the Israeli Center for Functional Medicine, CCODER Nepal Community Health Program, and the Ecopolitan Eco-Health Community.
Dr. T’s main humanitarian project is the creation of a network of schools, orphanages, and Day-Care centers, “The Everest Learning Academy” – to educate and nourish the poorest children in Nepal. They protect and nurture 800 children (and growing rapidly) who otherwise would end up on the streets or become victims of trafficking.
