Types of SAD Light Therapy Products And How To Choose The Right One For You

Light therapy products make use of exposure to light to treat a wide range of medical conditions. Although they are commonly used to treat skin, psychological and sleep disorders, they are now being used more and more often to help issues with mood and energy levels. More popularly, light boxes are sold by retailers to help tackle SAD or "winter depression".

Types of Light Therapy Products Available For SAD

The light box is one of the most common types of light therapy product available. These come in a wide number of shapes and sizes, ranging from floor standing models to small, desk lamp equivalents. Smaller models are now being commonly purchased as a cost effective way to achieve the benefits of light therapy.

You can also get sunrise simulator alarm clocks, designed to help people wake up more naturally, and with more energy. The bulbs are made to light up just like the gradual rising of the sun, which means that the body will wake slowly, feeling more alert.

Light visors also exist for quick boosts of energy. These are a lot smaller than traditional light therapy devices, worn as a small hat that can give short bursts of bright light. As well as treating SAD, these are also useful for helping to ease jet lag.

How To Choose The Right Seasonal Affective Disorder Light Therapy Device For You

Your doctor may recommend a particular product for you to use, though you can also simply purchase a light box to deal with your symptoms. Here are a few things you should consider when you do.

Size: Some light therapy products can be very large and obtrusive. Although these may be more effective and bright, they aren't always suitable for everyday use within the home. Thankfully there are now portable, desktop equivalents available for those who want to save space or to move the box around.

Price: SAD lights can range in price from under $100 to much more expensive. It all depends on the features you'll need and the brightness level you?'re looking for. You can still pick up an effective model for around $100.

Treatment Time: If you're pushed for time each day then you'll want to take a look at how long the manufacturer recommends you use the product. Some lights need to be used for hours, whereas some may work in as little as 20 minutes of daily use.

As you can see, there are a wide range of light therapy products available to buy. The one you choose will depend on the severity of your symptoms, where you're going to be using it, and how much money you have to spend. The good news is that there are a number of effective, affordable options available.
