SAD Lights, Light Therapy and Dawn Simulation products from Health and Care

1 CommentFriday, 26 November 2010  |  Paul

Health and Care are pleased to announce a brand new range of SAD Lights and SAD Lamps for the treatment of Seasonal Affective Disorder.Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), also known as winter depression or winter blues can be treated using light therapy. Light therapy lights are available in the form or lamps and specially designed alarm clocks and are available to purchase online at Health and Care.co.uk.

SAD is a mood disorder where people may have normal mental health during the summer months but experience depressive symptoms in winter every year. Light therapy is an effective treatment for Seasonal Affective Disorder and uses a bright light box which emits more lumens than a standard light box.

Dawn Simulation has also been found to be an effective treatment of winter depression where the sufferer is awoken gradually with simulated daylight. This dawn simulation helps the SAD sufferer to feel refreshed, alert and energised. The gradual brightening light used in a dawn simulator is a natural cue for the body to reduce the production of sleep hormones such as Melatonin.

The Lumie Bodyclock Advanced 200 wakes the person suffering with Seasonal Affective Disorder up naturally with a sunrise that gradually brightens over 15, 30, 60 or 90 minutes and the user can choose a setting that suits them the best. Also excellent for treating SAD is the sunset option in the Lumie Bodyclock Advanced 200 and these can also be set at suitable intervals. The Lumie Bodyclock helps with SAD as it keeps the sufferers sleep/wake cycle on track and boosts mood, energy and productivity levels for the rest of the day.

A part of light therapy in the treatment of Seasonal Affective Disorder is sitting by a special SAD lamp for a specific period of time. The Lumie Desk lamp is a great way to achieve this form of light therapy treatment as it is an SAD lamp which also doubles as a desk lamp. The Lumie SAD Desk lamp is ideal for everyday use, winter blues and is perfect for using at home or at work. The bright light used in the Lumie SAD Desk Lamp is extremely safe and if the SAD sufferer is working in a dimly lit office the light therapy desk lamp can be used every working day to compensate for the lack of natural light.
