HealthLight Eye Mask also helps to support healthy brain function.
Science has been able to prove definitively that light entering the eyes is not just for the purpose of vision, but is also being sent to one of the most important parts of the brain, the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus, which receives light energy by way of our eyes, coordinates and regulates most of our life-sustaining functions and also initiates and directs our reactions and adaptations to stress. Its major functions include control of the autonomic nervous system, energy balance, fluid balance, heat regulation, activity and sleep, circulation and breathing, growth and maturation, reproduction, and emotional balance. Thus the hypothalamus may be the single most important unit of the brain, standing as high command in maintaining harmony within the body.
The Greeks not only believed in the curative properties of light but specifically thought that light treatments were most effective by way of the eyes. They believed that the eyes were the most accessible path to the internal organs.
When we speak about health, balance and physiological regulation, we are referring to the functions of the body's major health keepers; the nervous system and the endocrine system.These major control centres of the body are directly stimulated and regulated by light, to an extent far beyond what modern science, until recently, has been willing to accept.
In summary, light enters the eyes not only to serve vision, but to go directly to the body's biological clock within the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus controls the nervous system and endocrine system, whose combined efforts regulate all biological functions in humans. In other words, they hypothalamus acts as a puppet master who, quietly and out of sight, controls most of the functions that keep the body in balance.
