How To Treat Depression With Light TherapyMay 11th, 2012 | Posted by in Light Therapy for Depression Information
Lack of sufficient light has a negative effect on our mental and physical health. It has been scientifically proven that bright light therapy can reverse seasonal affective disorder in just a few sessions. In fact, a few studies revealed that light therapy is just as effective as antidepressants. Light promotes the brain's production of the neurochemicals responsible for positive moods. Light therapy is just like going outside for an hour a day, but without the risks associated with UV light. When using light treatment, choose the light box that has 3 LED lights that produce 10,000 lumens each. The light should be blue with UV filter. Consult your doctor before trying light therapy and persons with eye problems such as diabetic retinopathy and sensitivity to light should not use light therapy because it can exasperate those diseases.
