There is so much power in light – literally.  And today various medical specialties are taking advantage of light and its power to help treat common problems.  According to research, utilizing light therapy as a treatment option can be extremely effective.  It works to help treat a variety of conditions.


SAD


Seasonal Affective Disorder is a mental condition that people struggle with each year.  As they struggle with this condition, treatment options are often difficult to find.  One of the best treatment options results from substituting the lack of sunlight with artificial light.  It seems to be the best way to cure the problems associated with this winter depression.


Depression And Anxiety


In addition to SAD, the regular forms of depression may also benefit from light therapy.  Light has a positive effect on a person’s mood.  It can help stimulate serotonin production.  Also, many people that suffer from anxiety have noticed that their symptoms are milder when they use light therapy.


Acne


Light therapy has also been known to help patients that suffer from acne.  Some people that can’t find cures for their skin issues comment on the miracle of light therapy.  It was the only solution that worked for them.

No. Light Therapy does not provide vitamin D. It will have to be obtained from an alternative source, such as vitamin supplements.
