Sunglasses: The biggest endocrine disruptor!

Bright light first thing in the morning can do more than just wake you up; it can reset your circadian rhythm, improve your hormonal balance, and boost your overall well-being. In this enlightening episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing Roudy Nassif, renowned Engineer, Wellness Entrepreneur, Martial Artist, Light Expert, and Founder of Vivarays.

We dive into the science behind how light impacts our sleep and health. You'll learn why balancing exposure to different frequencies of light is crucial, the hidden dangers of wearing contacts, and how blue light blocking glasses can be a game changer for your daily routine.

Roudy explains the benefits of using daytime harmonizers and nighttime glasses to optimize your light exposure and support your body's natural rhythms. Discover practical tips on how to improve your sleep quality, hormonal health, and vitality by simply adjusting your light environment. Whether you're struggling with sleep issues or looking to enhance your overall health, this episode offers valuable insights you won't want to miss.

Memorable Quotes:

"First thing in the morning. We need to experience that ebb and flow for cortisol to actually function properly. And it's this healthy rising tide of cortisol first thing in the morning that is going to allow us to feel alert, energized, focused, and ready to tackle the day. It's like nature's most efficient cup of coffee." [00:08:53] – Roudy Nassif

"When you are wearing sunglasses, it's actually the greatest endocrine disruptor ever. And the eyes are an extension of the brain, and you're just disconnecting yourself from the primary source that connects the outside with the inside." [00:19:42] – Roudy Nassif
