Depression and stress have a tendency to intermingle,
making it difficult to put your finger on the exact reason why
you feel depressed or stressed. You may even feel that it’s
not just one thing that’s getting you down, it’s everything and
you just can’t seem to kick a consistent feeling of gloom. You
can probably categorize those feelings as depression. For
some people those feelings of gloom and depression are
called
SAD, Seasonal Affective Disorder.

Vitamin D deficiencies can cause severe health issues. Osteoporosis is linked
to a lack of vitamin D.
Rickets is another bone-wasting disease that is linked to
a vitamin D deficiency. Chronic vitamin D deficiency is often misdiagnosed as
Fibromyalgia, because the symptoms are so similar; muscle weakness,
depression, and unexplained aches and pains.

You can get vitamin D through food and supplements, but sunlight exposure is
the only reliable way to generate vitamin D in your body. Studies show that
healthy levels of vitamin D inhibit prostate cancer, breast cancer, ovarian
cancer, colon cancer, depression, and even schizophrenia.

People with dark skin tend to need 20 to 30 times as much exposure to
sunlight as fair-skinned people to generate the same amount of vitamin D. In
fact, doctors have now discovered that vitamin D deficiency is causing high
rates of prostate cancer in Black males.

People who are over weight have been found to need twice as much vitamin D,
because obesity tends to impair how the body utilizes vitamin D. In general,
studies show that your risk of developing serious diseases like diabetes and
cancer can be reduced by 50% - 80% with simple and sensible exposure to
natural sunlight on an average of two to three times each week.

When your exposure to natural sunlight is limited, you can combat the
depression related to SAD or the health issues associated with sunlight
deficiencies with light therapy or photo therapy.

Light therapy is exposure to light through special light therapy lamps or light
boxes that are brighter than indoor light, but not as bright as direct sunlight.
Light therapy has been found to be effective against depression, and it can
reset your biological clock, or
circadian rhythms, which controls when you
sleep and when you wake up. Exposure to this special light has been found to
be close enough to natural sunlight to allow the body to produce needed
vitamin D.

Light therapy can offer effective mood altering and physical health benefits for
generally anyone, and it has already been clinically proven to reduce stress.  

The photo therapy lamps or light boxes used in the treatment of Seasonal
Affective Disorder are considered safe and effective for the intended purpose,
as long as photo-sensitizing drugs are not being taken at the same time, and
no eye sensitivities exist. It is recommended that light therapy should be used
under the supervision of a medical professional, but some light boxes have
such low light density that they can be used without consulting a physician.  

Light therapy may be most effective when used first thing in the morning when
you wake up. You and your doctor can determine when light therapy works
best for you. You usually sit approximately 12" from the light anywhere from 10
to 30 minutes per session. It is neither recommended nor necessary to stare
directly into the light. A positive response to light therapy usually occurs within
2 to 4 days, but it may take up to three weeks before symptoms of SAD or
depression are relieved and it can take months to correct a vitamin D
deficiency.

We can all benefit from the use of light therapy. More often than not, most
people do not get the kind of exposure to the sun that could be beneficial. You
tend to be stuck inside buildings all day long. You may go to work before
sunrise, and get out of work as the sun is going down or has already set. If that
sounds like your lifestyle, you may be a good candidate for light therapy.

Light therapy is a viable alternative to consider when stress or depression has
taken over, and you need more than aromatherapy, candles, or relaxation to
get results.

SAD is a depression disorder associated with light deprivation during the
winter months. Seasonal Affective Disorder is caused by a melatonin
imbalance initiated by a lack of exposure to sunlight. SAD sufferers are not
the only ones feeling stress, depression, and the negative health affects
caused by a lack of appropriate sunlight. We are all feeling its impact. Our
lifestyles limit our exposure to sunlight. You naturally get vitamin D from
sunlight, and a lack of exposure to sunlight is the main cause of vitamin D
deficiency.
