It’s time to get your circadian rhythm back on beat. Exploring health and ancestral living has led It’s Rainmaking Time!® to a greater understanding of the role of light in the body’s cycles, energy patterns, and overall health. Physicist Dr. Richard Hansler – the author of Great Sleep! Reduced Cancer! and Heroes of Cancer Prevention Research – details the effect of artificial light on hormone production and sleeping patterns. In this enlightening segment, Dr. Richard Hansler explains how blue light disrupts the production of melatonin in the pineal gland, making it difficult to fall asleep. We will discuss various lighting solutions and products that support natural melatonin production, the details of Dr. Richard Hansler’s illustrious history as a senior scientist at GE’s Nela Park lighting laboratory and his post-GE career as the founder of Lighting Innovations Institute and co-founder of Low Blue Lights, an online retailer of advanced lighting products.

The science behind this goes back quite a few years.
Glad it’s finally getting attention. A good summary with cites:

I’ve put links and references to sources I found in the comments there as
we’ve changed to low- and no-blue-light sources in the evening at our house.

I sure hope the CFL bulb on their website is mercury free. I think a nightlight and earthing pad would be a good combo. You should do a show on earthing/grounding with Clinton Ober, or a show on isolation tanks with Joe Rogan or Dr. Lilly. I’ve only been listening to you for a couple of weeks, and like it very much. Thank you.

I puchased the glasses (several and light bulbs)and they work great! I even purchased several more pair for family. For anyone thinking of getting the Doctor’s package they have available, I am sure friends and family will love them….that package seems more economical in the long run.

I bought the starter kit and It really seems to be helping us. We do have a couple of questions though: If you take your glasses off and accidentally get an eyefull of regular light for just a moment does that ruin the whole thing for the night? Can you read your Kindle with the glasses on?

Very intersting interview and fantastic information. Theres only one fault I can see not only with some of the research and this applies to other interviews as well. It is the fact that animal experiments are often quoted. Animal studies really have nothing to do with the reinforcement of validity simply because you cannot extrapolate these to human beings and also I have heard that after human studies they then did these on animals, cant see the logic of this

If I change all my lightbulb to Dr. Hansler’s orange lightbulb, do I STILL need to wear the glasses?

If you have on television or, you use devices like cell phones, tablets and computers, then yes. Light that is emitted from these devices is part of the problem as well. Having a night light in your bathroom, a little flashlight, one of their lightbulbs and the glasses seems like a great package to me.

Dear Bernard,

You don’t need to change all of your lightbulbs to lowbluelights.com but you can get a package that contains a pair of their glasses, a lightbulb, a flashlight and a nightlight for your bathrooms. That is a perfect starter. Thank you also for your kind and generous donations from Australia.
