Treat Winter Blues Naturally
Scientific research has shown that the natural rhythms of our bodies are regulated by light. Our exposure to sunlight in the winter, especially in more northern areas, is significantly reduced. For some individuals, this reduction in sunlight exposure can result in a mood disorder commonly known as the Seasonal Affective Disorder which can result in reduced energy, low moods, and disrupted sleep patterns.
Research has shown that light therapy use, even for as little as 15 minutes a day, can significantly reduce these symptoms by providing your body with the required amount of light exposure otherwise lacking during the darker months of the year. The goLITE BLU effectively mimics the natural patterns and spectrum of sunlight that our bodies need most. And best of all, the goLITE BLU provides a natural and affordable method of treating winter blues without using artificial stimulants or drugs.
BlueWave Technology From Philips

The Philips goLITE B Review by Litton
The Philips goLITE BLU is very well made. It comes with a slick leather cayrring case. The device's stand magnetically sticks in a groove in the back of the device which is a nice feature and will prevent it from getting lost. Functionally the device is very easy to use. You can set it as an alarm if you like to wake up to the blue light. The device also has varying levels of intensity from not-so-bright to WOW-very-bright!Ok enough about that- I bet you're all asking, well does it work? Let me first say that I am not one to get depressed over gray winters. I live in Seattle and it is gray for more than half of the year so I do frequently long for some sunlight but I can handle it. I wasn't exactly sure what to expect from this light. I've been using it for two weeks now and I have noticed a slight effect. I find it a little easier to get up in the morning and am possibly a little happier than usual on my way to work in the cloud/rain. That said I am sure there are people out there that need this device a lot more than I do. Judging by the other reviews I do believe it can really help them. (Posted on 10/14/13)
This is a lifesaver Review by Dee
After 17 years of Prozac I decided to wean myself off meds & use a holistic approach to managing my depressive tendencies The light therapy combined with proper nutrition and exercise make meds redundant!!! (Posted on 1/18/13)
who knew? Review by petvet
I bought this product hoping that it would help my winter blahs but I really had no expectations. Wow! What a difference I feel about everything! I find my mood is optimistic now and I think this is from the higher level of energy during the day. I get to the end of the day and I still feel like I can do more! My sleep is much better and I awake with no grogginess now. Please give this gift to yourself, you will not be sorry!
