Now what the hell is "Paleo" Radiation Therapy? It's simple, it's free, and when combined with loosely adhered to "Paleo" diet principles, results in achieving optimal health for those who do it on a regular basis!
To be more precise: Paleo Solar Radiation Therapy -- aka sunbathing without sunscreen at high noon.

Vitamin D is the keystone nutrient. You can eat the healthiest human diet possible, exercise regularly and get a good nights sleep every night....but develop a Vitamin D deficiency, and you will eventually get sick.
The best source of Vitamin D, is giving your bare skin direct exposure to the full spectrum of solar radiation when the sun is directly overhead your given latitude on the planet.
In most places, this is the 10:00am - 4:00pm window for which all the Brave New World Order healthcareindustry representatives and propaganda organs tell us we should try to avoid as much as possible, and that if we must go outdoors during that time period, we must cover up as much as possible and slather on the sunscreen.
Think I'm exaggerating? Here's the top 5 search results I got for googling "Prevent Skin Cancer"
Center for Disease CONTROL - "The hours between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. daylight savings time (9 a.m. to 3 p.m. standard time) are the most hazardous for UV exposure outdoors in the continental United States."
WebMD - "Avoid direct sun exposure as much as possible during peak UV radiation hours between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m."
ThirdAge.com - "Try to avoid sun exposure between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. This is when the sun's rays are most damaging."
FamilyDoctor.org - "Avoid the sun. Sunlight damages your skin. The sun is strongest during the middle of the day, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. During these hours, the sun can do the most damage to your skin."
About.com - "Avoid going outdoors from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This is when the sun's rays are brightest, causing the most damage to skin. If you have to go outdoors, be sure to lather on sunscreen."
This, we are told, is to protect us from developing skin cancer decades later, due to the damage that comes from supposedly getting too many sunburns in our careless youth.
Every single weather report on the local news channels in Hawaii will always have the weatherman advising to not forget the sunscreen if the forecast is for sunny weather. When I say always, I mean ALWAYS. I cannot recall a single instance in the past decade for which the TV weatherman has not trotted out the old sunscreen advisory.
Hmmmm.....stay out of the mid-day sun! If you must, wear hats, long sleeves and don't forget the sunscreen!
This is the conventional wisdom of our mass media healthcare narrative, is it not?
But wait a minute - Sunscreen blocks out solar radiation, which MAY help prevent sunburn...but the most important thing you need to realize is that it also prevents your skin from manufacturing the Vitamin D that is so vital to every single aspect of your health. Even Winston Wiki over at the Ministry of Truth admits it!
This is essentially what we are really being told when we are advised to avoid the mid-day sun and to wear sunscreen at all times:
THIS IS DISINFORMATION DESIGNED TO MAKE YOU BEHAVE IN A MANNER FOR WHICH YOU WILL EVENTUALLY DEVELOP SUB-CLINICAL LEVELS OF VITAMIN D PRODUCTION.
THIS WILL MAKE YOU SICK IN A MYRIAD OF WAYS FOR WHICH OUR MODERN HEALTH CARE AND PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRIES CAN PROFIT FROM BY TREATING THE SYMPTOMS FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME, RIGHT UP UNTIL THE DAY YOU DIE.
YOU WILL BE KEPT ON MAINTENANCE MEDICATIONS THAT ALLEVIATE THE SYMPTOMS AS LONG AS YOU TAKE THEM, BUT YOUR FUNDAMENTAL ISSUE (VITAMIN D DEFICIENCY) WILL NEVER BE FIXED AS LONG AS YOU DO YOUR BEST TO FOLLOW THIS DISINFORMATION TO "FIGHT SKIN CANCER!"
For those of us in the equatorial and northern hemisphere of the planet, we are in the beginning days of summer. NOW is the best time to get your daily dosage of vitamin D.
The HEALTHY TAN is NOT an oxymoron...it's the literal truth. A healthy tan indicates optimal vitamin D levels.
You only need to sunbathe for 15 - 45 minutes a day at mid-day to develop a nice tan. Even though you're sunbathing when we are told not to, and you are not wearing the sunscreen protection we are told we should, you still want to avoid getting sunburned (duh...of course, who likes sunburns?).
Just keep your awareness about your level of solar radiation tolerance. Sun bathe until you start to sweat...once your skin BEGINS to get pink, you're approaching your personal "burn zone."
As you develop your tan over a period of weeks, you'll be able to slowly increase your tolerance. Even the most paleface of pale faces can develop a true tolerance if they're careful, deliberate and dedicated. Even if you're not careful about your diet and you eat a lot of processed/convenience and fast foods, your sun tolerance can still be developed (it's just a lot easier if you eat a paleo diet, as a natural, real food diet is anti-inflammatory and makes your skin cells much more resilient to damage).
Mark Sisson at Mark's Daily Apple has some good advice on the kind of foods you can eat to help develop your sun tolerance.
Sun Tolerance = Optimal Vitamin D Production
I have a bud who is pure Norweigan blood, plantnium blonde hair and blue eyes. He's a surf fanatic, and had a melanoma removed from his face.
Funny thing was, for his entire life, he NEVER went surfing without first putting on waterproof sunscreen on. For decades. And he still got the skin cancer.
I explained to him about my philosophy and he sees my dark tan that I've had for the past year and a half now, and he decided to give my advice a go. He's now got a nice, healthy tan, and his natural sun tolerance has increased dramatically. He also no longer uses sunscreen.
Incidentally, I myself can go do yard work all day long with my shirt off, and not get sunburned. A year ago, it would not have been possible. Of course, since I live in Hawaii, I can work on my tan year round...most folks not living close to the equator simply can't during the winter and fall months. But here's the most important thing - in the past year and a half of sunbathing at mid-day at least 4-5 times a week, I have not been sunburned at all. This is the longest time period of my life in which I did not at least get even a mild sunburn.
I believe I've gotten my tolerance to solar radiation built up to the point where I can stand a full day of summer sun without burning. I no longer fear the sun.
Also, many folks who haven't seen me in awhile, all comment on my tan when I see them. They ask me if I've been going surfing alot lately or something...they don't remember me ever being so dark. I usually just say "yeah, I've been going beach lately."
Next time, I think I'll answer with this: "I've been doing this radical new treatment called Paleo Radiation Therapy."
