What Causes Seasonal Affective Disorder?

As the days get shorter and the autumn approaches, quickly followed by winter, the amount of light we typically receive in Northern areas, significantly decreases, which can have an adverse effect on our bodies and psyche. Some people simply can't handle this seasonal transition and require help in order to remain functional, positive and happy.

How Can I Deal with SAD Without Relying on Medication?

Medication can be helpful in dealing with SAD, but so many physicians are just way too quick at the draw to prescribe anti-depressants to deal with issues that can ultimately benefit from alternative therapies, by addressing the actual cause of the problem. In the case of Seasonal Affective Disorder, the problem is that the amount of sunlight is significantly reduced, which decreases the amount of light that our body's are able to absorb. Knowing this… doesn't it make more sense to consider light therapy as a probable treatment?
