Sit back and buckle up because this episode is going to blow your mind! Matt Maruca, founder of The Light Diet and Ra Optics, spent years of his early childhood and adulthood chasing wellness only to be stuck spinning his wheels. So he set out to learn how to improve his health at the cellular level in hopes to rebuild his life from the inside out.

Matt learned that all modern chronic diseases, including cancer, Alzheimer’s, obesity, diabetes, autism, autoimmune diseases, and even depression are mitochondrial diseases, meaning that certain tissues’ mitochondria are severely damaged in those diseases, and that his issues were mitochondrial, too.

He learned that mitochondria are “electromagnetic” in nature, meaning that how they process our food and make energy is controlled by light.  This explained why diet alone was not enough to actually cure his symptoms.
It further clarified to me how so many people struggle with diet and exercise as their only strategies for health, and why focusing on diet, exercise, and supplements alone to improve health is like focusing only on the gas when trying to fix a car with a broken engine.
He earned that more energetic light frequencies, especially blue light, exert the strongest effect on our body clock, and the less energetic frequencies such as red light have a comparatively minimal effect. He learned that getting UV light from the sun through our eye is critical to creating melatonin, before it can even be secreted in the hours after the sun sets. So, he began going outside in sunlight during the day to make melatonin, and wearing blue light blocking safety goggles at night to allow his melatonin to be secreted and his not looked back since!
