S.A.D. Lightboxes

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is officially recognised by Doctors and Psychiatrists as a medical condition thought to affect over 2 million people in the UK.

SADSymptoms include:

  • Depression
  • Lethargy
  • Anxiety
  • Irritability
  • Sleep Problems
  • Loss of Libido
  • Craving for carbohydrates and sweet foods

SAD has a lot in common with the hibernation cycle of animals and research shows that this is triggered by a response to decreasing light levels. As the days grow shorter and the light becomes less intense, it increases the desire to ‘hibernate’.

Research in the USA and UK shows that sufferers respond, often quite dramatically, to Bright Light Treatment. We can offer a range of proven lightboxes which are a recognised method of alleviating SAD.
