More information about SAD:
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a pattern of seasonal depression experienced by otherwise healthy and happy people. Typically, fall and winter bring down feelings not explained by day to day experiences. It is estimated that as many as 20-30% of the population living at latitudes in the northern sections of the US may experience at least some SAD symptoms.
The light box provides a measured amount of bright, color balance light equivalent to standing outdoors at noon on a cloudless day. This has been shown to help regulate the body clock. Photobiologists point out that the light is registered by the eyes through the retina, which then transfers impulses to the hypothalamus in the brain to normalize the body clock function. The light from the box will help synchronize sleep/wake patterns with ones work and life style.

Lifesaver Review by pioneer.designs
I have had seasonal depression (SAD) for as long as I can remember. I am 40 Now and have been getting treatment since I was 27. My previous treatment was increasing my antidepressant in the winter in about the end of September through March. I lived in Wisconsin, Where the days are very short in the winter. I would take out my lamp and sit in front of it for 45 min -1hour per day and in December increase it to twice a day. I was able to eliminate the increase of antidepressant medication. And I felt better than ever before! More energy, the SAD was gone. If I felt it coming back, I took another 30 min on the light and it would shoot it down. I started this when I was 29 in 1999, and am still using the light each winter season with the same success. I now live in Texas, and do not have to take it out until Nov 1, but I get the same results. It is now 2009. Thank God for my SunBox! I don't even leave home without it in the winter months.
