Light Therapy

Health professionals are recognizing bright light therapy as an option for a number of health issues. Light is essential to maintaining normal, healthy physiology. Exposure to the sunrise is a key factor in synchronizing our internal body cycles or circadian rhythms to the external world (so we sleep when it is dark and are alert during the day).

Modern industrial society, combined with human migration to northern latitudes, has tampered with this cycle and the resulting loss of natural light exposure – in dark apartments, in the workplace, on shift work, etc. For many, this leads to ongoing light deprivation, making us vulnerable to mood disorders, sleep problems, fatigue, poor ability to concentrate, and more.
