Time Conscious Living

atom-bergstrom-sunAtom Bergstrom, born Gosta Ingvar Bergstrom, Jr, is credited as the founder of Sun Sync and the leading expert on a Sun-Centric lifestyle. Atom’s journey towards health, nutrition, longevity, and meditation goes back to 1955, when he first started reading books by D.C. Jarvis, J.I. Rodale, Carlton Fredericks, Adelle Davis, Aldous Huxley, Paramahansa Yogananda, Swami Prabhavananda, and numerous others. His exposure to the above mentioned authors instigated a deep desire and passion to understand and unlock the secrets to optimal human wellness and longevity. Atom was inspired by the words of Thomas Jefferson: “School teaches all of the branches, but none of the roots.” He sought the answers to his questions, not in classrooms, but in books, relationships, and life experiences. His quest for true knowledge and wisdom began by studying in hundreds of libraries across the country and evolved by studying with teachers and masters including Swami Adano Ley, Sufi Adnan Sarhan, Rabbi Michael Shapiro, Taoist Master Yun Xiang Tseng, and Fitness Icon Gypsy Boots. His most significant teacher was Swami Adano Ley with whom he spent 14 years. During this time, he studied a variety of sciences extensively, including the sun centric lifestyle, and ultimately graduated from Adano Ley’s Texas Institute of Reflex Sciences. The knowledge and wisdom he gained studying under a highly evolved swami combined with his emphasis on scientific research & personal experience would soon become the heartbeat of Sun Sync Nutrition. For the past 40 years, Atom has dedicated his life to the continuous learning and teaching of Sun Sync Nutrition, Time Conscious Eating, Cosmo-Chemistry, Reflexology, Muscle Response Testing, Body Language Analysis, Iris Analysis, Lucid Dreaming, Meditation and many other sciences.

I have a skin rash that usually does not itch too much, but usually, at around 10 PM I often awaken feeling as if my skin is on fire, burning, and aching. The stinging itch usually continues for several hours before it calms down. Along with that, I feel some irritation in the colon.

    Atmospheric air is typically 21% oxygen by volume while oxygen therapy increases this by some amount up to 100% — often between 26% and 50%.

    The reverse — adding more carbon dioxide and less oxygen — might have dramatic health benefits.

    According to Haidut (Georgi D.) …

    “Oxygen is actually not a safe substance unless CO2 is around to control its effects. If there is not enough CO2 produced oxygen will not reach the tissues and will just float around. It can be seen on a pulse oxymeter with a reading of 100% oxygenation. A much better approach is supplementing an oxygen/CO2 mixture, where the CO2 is 5%-7%.”

    The effects from 5%-7% carbon dioxide might be TOO dramatic.

    Extra percentages and CO2’s circadian rhythms are best discussed with one’s doctor or health adviser.

    Atom, Wonderful show – Where can I find more information about a crystal lamp or crystal light bulb like you mentioned that Ray Peat said could come close to replacing sunlight if, for instance, you lived in a far northern climate and needed something to use during the winter .What is available online looks very confusing. I’ve tried using various “Ray Peat and crystal lamp” search terms but that doesn’t turn up much except the chicken heat lamp bulbs and some rose quartz pieces with regular light bulbs inside of them. I realize one needs to be very careful with a true crystal light source.. Thank you! Ellen

      We’ve never used a mercury vapor light, so your question is a good one for Ray Peat.


      According to lighting design expert Rogier van der Heide …

      “There are risks associated with the light as it can cause skin cancer and the lamps are costly.”

      According to the same source …

      “If you still want to use light, you will need a lamp that produces UVB radiation. This is ‘light’ outside the visible spectrum, on the blue side of the rainbow if you like.

      “Pick a lamp that radiates the entire spectrum though, because that way your eyes will naturally look away from it and you avoid eye damage. You can verify if the lamp radiates the entire spectrum: the light should look ‘white’ and not like ‘black light’.”

        Atom, But what kind of bulb would one use to directly irradiate the food? Would a bulb that is for plants contain the necessary spectrum? Also, would this work for irradiating meat before you eat it? Also, maybe you could talk more about mercury vapor light bulbs on your next show? They look very interesting and are perhaps the “original light bulbs” – but light is such a complex issue that it’s hard to know what to make of far as using them in this way. Thank you, Ellen

          The Sperti Vitamin D Light Box seems to be the highest choice. Light IS a complex issue, so one needs to be cautious of any human reproduction of sunlight or parts thereof (especially when an exchange of money is involved).

    Atom mentioned Skin Food made by his teacher, Adano Ley.
    Here is the recipe:
    1. White curds removed from ghee making
    2. Aloe vera
    3. Apple cider vinegar
    4. Kukui nut oil
    5. Rosemary oil
    6. Castor oil
    7. Jojoba nut oil

      Thanks, Elliott.

      Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) added and subtracted ingredients at different times.

      Almonds and witch hazel were once part of Skin Food.

      Here’s the inside scoop on Skin Food —> The only essential ingredient is the “white cholesterol” (clarified butter residue).

      Everything else is optional … at least until Swami Nitty-Gritty decided to market the clarified butter residue as “Skin Food.”

      Clarified butter is the “yellow cholesterol,” and is great for heart health and healing bones.
