Light As Medicine Against Depression: 2

Now that we have touched base on depression and what it can actually do to you, let’s go ahead and switch gears and move over to some of the effects that light can actually help you with.  Light is definitely something that can heal – did you know that any living organism actually needs to have light around?

Light therapy is actually something that really – works.  How it works is that there is usually a certain device called a light box, which is a metallic structure that contains a tube of fluorescent lighting that is put behind a screen.  The dosage of the light exposure is actually very calculated by measuring the intensity and the length of the exposure.

Two to six hours a day is actually pretty good, for that is what will really make a different in your depression.
