SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder)

Light therapy is increasingly being used to reset our body's natural rhythms. At any time of year all kinds of things can upset our rhythms like working in artificial light, jet lag or shift work. In addition, the onset of winter can leave us feeling gloomy and short of energy. By providing summertime levels of light during the winter you can successfully alleviate the symptoms of SAD with the result that former sufferers can lead a normal, happier life and beat the Winter Blues.

At http://www.elixirhealth.co.uk we have light boxes of different strengths according to the amount of time you want to use the light box, either 20 minutes, 30 minutes or 60+ minutes. So, if you have to get out of the house in a rush then you need one with more lights that will give a quicker treatment time such as the Diamond 4 or Silver Lite. However, if you are at home for longer periods during the day then one that you can use for longer is just as effective such as the Diamond 2 or the little LitePod. If you can use your light box on your desk during the day, or if travelling, then the LitePod is an ideal model.
