Do you experience a serious mood change when the seasons change or when you're deprived of natural daylight? Do you get the winter blues and feel sluggish, experience sleep problems, loss of mental acuity or memory loss, and have difficulty concentrating?
If you answered yes to some or all of these symptoms, you may be suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), often known as "winter depression."
SAD is a common medical condition caused by the seasonal change in the amount of available sunlight. People who suffer from SAD will generally experience normal mental health throughout most of the year, but experience depressive symptoms in the darker winter months or when they find themselves deprived of natural daylight due to rainy weather, night shift work, airplane travel and subsequent jet lag, or just a lifestyle that dictates too much time indoors.
While correct diagnosis of SAD has become more commonplace, treatment is the area where doctors and SAD sufferers need more education. In the past, doctors have been quick to prescribe an anti-depressant when a patient mentioned being “depressed”. While drugs can sometimes be effective treating depression, light therapy is the natural, side-effect free alternative to anti-depressant pills.
Our book, "Beating Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) With Light Therapy", will help you to better understand SAD and how therapeutic light systems have been proven an effective treatment for these symptoms. The contents of this book will provide you with a better understanding of SAD, including how to recognize symptoms of SAD in yourself or a loved one, available treatment options, the positive effects of light therapy, product recommendations, and coping with a lifestyle affected by SAD.
