About Bright Light Therapy
Why might you need Bright Light Therapy?
Historically, people have tended to work outside. It is only in the last 100 or so years that people began depriving themselves of vital sunshine by spending most of their day inside. There is evidence that this dramatic shift is having profound effects on people`s well being and sleeping patterns.
What is lux?
|The amount of light under different conditions
|Bright sunshine||100,000 lux
|INNOSOL Bright light therapy||At least 10,000 lux
|Well illuminated office||400 lux
|General illumination in homes||50 lux
1 lux is the light intensity produced by a single candle from one metre away. The sun, unsurprisingly, produces a lot of lux, around 50,000-100,000. Compare this with the light intensity in the average home or office, between 50 and 400 lux and it`s easy to see why the phenomenon known as SAD is on the increase.
What is SAD?
SAD stands for Seasonal Affective Disorder and is a medically recognised condition that results from our body`s response to shorter days and smaller amounts of daylight. SUB SAD, or Winter Blues is a milder form of SAD affecting a considerably larger number of people.
You may be suffering from SAD if you find you often feel tired or lacking in energy, particularly around autumn and winter time when the days get shorter, the nights get longer and a bright, sunny day seems like a distant memory!
What can INNOSOL Bright Light Therapy do for you?
Bright light therapy is a pleasant way to take care of yourself. INNOSOL bright light devices effectively compensate for the lack of natural daylight.
For Bright Light Therapy to have any effect it requires a light intensity from 2,500 lux. All INNOSOL Bright Light Therapy lamps emit at least 10,000 luxes of light. Of course, INNOSOL Bright Light devices meet all the requirements set on high quality light therapy; the light does not flicker, it is evenly distributed and the opaque lamp shade filters the UV emissions.
