Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

One of the world’s leading advocates of regular UV exposure has developed his second successful fitness retreat that includes embracing regular sun exposure as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Dr. Marc Sorenson, founder of The Sunlight Institute, has cofounded the National Institute of Health and Fitness ( near Park City, Utah, as a destination health resort located at the Zermatt and Homestead Resorts.

Sorenson and his wife, Vicki, are veterans in the field of health education who previously founded the National Institute of Fitness as one of the top health resorts in the world, helping clients lose a total of 110 tons of fat and helping two-thirds of his diabetic guests become symptom-free and off of medication. His book Megahealth was a top-seller and was a Book of the Month selection by Doubleday’s Health Book Club.

The National Institute of Health and Fitness fosters an encouraging, time-tested, educationally-driven blueprint to sustained weight loss and optimal health, but incorporates the value of sun exposure into the formula.

Praised for their success in educating guests on methods to lose weight, and to prevent such maladies as cancer, diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension, chronic pain, and arthritis, the Sorensons offer a time-tested, safe and effective approach. They are known for sharing their philosophy of health and fitness throughout the world with a compassionate and nurturing manner.

The Sorensons have been recognized internationally and domestically by ISPA, SHAPE, Elle, Mademoiselle, Chicago Sun, NY Times, LA Times and more. Praised as one of the country’s most influential health teams, the Sorensons now reside at Zermatt Resort & Spa and Homestead Resort.

As the founder of the independent Sunlight Institute ( Dr. Marc Sorenson has become one of North America’s leading independent vitamin D advocates, traveling throughout the United States and Canada to deliver the message that vitamin D deficiency is killing people and that sun avoidance is unwarranted. Sorenson is the author of “Vitamin D3 and Solar Power for Optimal Health” — a book detailing the benefits of vitamin D produced naturally through sun exposure. Sorenson is a regular sun tanner and believes that the benefits of regular non-burning sun exposure outweigh the risks associated with overexposure, which can be minimized by avoiding sunburn.
