Community Gathering: Light as Medicine
Without sunshine, we cannot survive. All living things—plants, animals, and humans alike—require light. But not just any light—we need balanced light, the whole spectrum of sunshine. Join Emma to discover more about this important topic that is frequently disregarded.

About the Event
Join our Thriver Members Community Gathering and learn from Coach Emma. The 2017 Nobel Prize for medicine was awarded for discovering how our circadian rhythms are controlled. Light remains one of the most powerful influences on our behaviour and well-being and studies have found that disrupting the circadian system increases the risk of disease.
Circadian health refers to your body’s amazing natural ability to keep to a daily schedule via an internal 24-hour master clock that influences how your body operates on a healthy sleep/wake schedule. This clock contributes to the patterns, also known as circadian rhythms, of many biological activities including sleep-wake cycles, eating patterns, and hormone function. This cycle influences a number of things including weight loss and various other aspects of health, so ensuring it’s optimised is important for overall health and wellness.
Join Emma to learn more about how light can have positive (and negative) effects on physiology and health, such as; inflammation, immune responses and treatment of chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. You will also learn useful ways to harness the power of natural light in your own life.
