Seasonal affective disorder, known as SAD, is a type of depression associated with the shorter days and lack of sunlight during the Fall and Winter months. Those who suffer from this disorder generally experience sadness, fatigue and other problems which can have a negative impact on their lives.
One of the most effective treatments for seasonal affective disorder is the use of light therapy boxes which mimic sunlight. Light therapy boxes cause biochemical changes in the brain, increasing melatonin and serotonin levels, improving both mood and energy levels. There are many types of light boxes on the market from large to small, expensive to reasonably priced.
The Zandro Company offers a convenient and affordable treatment option with the Zandro light therapy box. This light box is portable so it can be placed on a desktop or used as a hand held device and is convenient to use anywhere. It also comes with a clock for easier timing of treatment sessions since it is necessary to use light therapy for a minimum of 30 minutes in order to achieve benefits from the treatment.
Emitting a blue LED light, simply glancing at the light during a session helps to reduce the symptoms of SAD. The Zadro SAD therapy light helps to return melatonin and serotonin levels in the brain to their summertime levels, reducing depression and increasing energy.
