As was commonly believed in ancient Greece, modern medical researchers now agree that moderate sun exposure during safe hours is essential for optimal health. Hippocrates prescribed sunbathing for his sun cure. Herodotus said, “Exposure to the sun is highly necessary for persons whose health is in need of restoring.” The Greeks practiced “aerination” or the exposure of the nude body to sunlight, specifically on beach sand.
“Okay,” you might say, “I agree. There is nothing harmful if I sunbathe in moderation during safe hours, but do I have to take off all my clothes?” Dr. McFadden insists that cancers of the breast, prostate, reproductive organs and colon are caused when these vital organs are not exposed to the sun and air.
Benefits to baring it all? Certainly, stranger things are possible.

Beauty should be shared and appreciated. If you think you’re not beautiful, get a second opinion.
No matter how much you weigh you can still enjoy the feel of the sun, wind and water over your whole body. Why shiver with some oversized wet suit keeping you cold? Take it off and warm up. Your skin will dry and warm much faster than any swim suit.
Quit trying to fit into the mold that salesmen have you obsessing over. Women tend to gain self esteem when they quit hiding in their clothes. Buy clothes for work, but relax on a boat instead of a recreation wardrobe. Travel light. Leave your clothes at home.
Be at peace with your body, then exercise to feel good. Nudists must exercise more than the clothing compulsives. In the United States clothing optional sites are usually hard to reach. When sites are easy to reach, clothing compulsives go too. Then they complain, and they keep complaining until nudists are forced out. Consequently, clothing optional sites require more exercise just to get there.
You think you’re ugly? I hope you don’t think that beauty is what they show you in fashion magazines. That’s all artificial and superficial. We will accept you in whatever size shape or color you come in. Then you will smile. Your smile makes you beautiful.
Maybe you have scars or stretch marks. Maybe you lost a breast. We will accept you. Then you will accept yourself.
